A government formed by the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) will launch a fresh probe on the Central Bank bond scam after formulating a separate court, MP Mahinda Yapa Abeywardane said yesterday.

When asked about his comment over Colombo Chief Magistrate granting bail on Arjun Aloysius and Kasun Palisena, who are allegedly involved in the bond scam, the MP said the government wants to conceal the bond scam.

“This issue is unlikely to be solved. We hope to establish a separate court and start a new probe under a government of ours,” he told a news briefing held at the SLPP office.

Meanwhile, he said the current government was formed by the elements which wished to see the country divided.

“The ambition of these elements is to weaken the government and divide the country. As the SLPP, we will not allow this to happen,” he said.

MP Kanaka Herath, who also addressed the news briefing, requested President Maithripala Sirisena to remove the National List MPs of the SLFP who joined the government.

“National List MPs came to parliament because of the sacrifices we made. Therefore, we also have a right about the posts of these MPs.They are in parliament thanks to the hard work of former president Mahinda Rajapaksa during the election campaign. They have betrayed the party now,” he said.
