The COPE report on the Central Bank bond issue has already been sent to the AG by the Prime Minister’s Office before it was approved by Parliament yesterday, the President said.
President Maithripala Sirisena made the observation while speaking at an event held at the Abeyaramaya temple in Narahenpita on Wednesday.

Then the report has also been forwarded to the IGP,” he said.

President Sirisena also went on to say he is not agreeing with the move to conduct probe with respect of the case as a civil case, not as a criminal case.

Advice from legal experts of the country was obtained before appointing the CoI, or other investigations will be dragged for two to three years,” he said.

Meanwhile, Ven. Bellanwila Wimalaratana Thera said It is questionable whether people are experiencing the ‘change’ they expected. Even a child would agree to the fact that a massive fraud has taken place in this country. Why (they are) trying to sweep it under the carpet by appointing commissions. This looks like a serious jock. Have these officials got no shame? to allow their friends to earn in billions while making losses to the country.”
