Arjuna Mahendran Bolts Overseas As COPE Report Presented In Parliament

Bringing an end to weeks of speculation and uncertainty, the highly awaited COPE report on the controversial Treasury Bond scam was presented in Parliament today.

Arjuna Mahendran

Arjuna Mahendran

However, by the time it was presented, ex-Governor of Central Bank, Arjuna Mahendran had already bolted out of the country.

The report was presented to Parliament by the Chairman of the Committee on Public Enterprises (COPE) Sunil Handunneththi this morning.

In his recommendation, Handunneththi said that legal action must be taken against Mahendran as he was responsible for the bond transaction.

The COPE report drafted by Handunnetti received the support of 16 members in the Committee, while the UNP members in the Committee agreed to Handunneththi’s report provided certain ‘foot notes’ were added.

Handunneththi’s report, also recommends that steps be taken to recover the loss of monies from those responsible.

Mahendran is a Singaporean citizen and was the 13th Governor of Central Bank. He was appointed to the post by Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe. Despite his checkered past at Central Bank, no sooner Mahendran’s term at Central Bank came to an end, Wickremesinghe appointed him as the Head of the Sri Lanka Five Year Development Plan.

Meanwhile, the Joint Opposition has requested for a special debate on the COPE report, before the budget is presented in Parliament.

    If he is found guilty, the Singapore govt will be having his citizenship revoked without any further thoughts.
    The unlucky 13th governer. An unqualified and unfit person for the post of CB governor.

      Yes dead right.

      These men led by immatured JVPrs make it a big issue.

      If he is found guilty – singapore (very strict country with all lawful high order) will definitely catch him and work with srilanken counterparts.

      These men JVPrs are really imamautred.

      If Udayanga can stay unescaped by lanken laws, but honeymooning with his cousin former president sIRLANKA – as tabloids proved lately… why ynot Arjuna be allowed to go and see hi sfamily in Spore
      He travels through continent very often as was the case with german soccer captain did it at that time between Germany s frankfurt to Losangelis /CA.

      Man, let this do ina proper manner. RW is no means stupid to let things go this way he is well conversant with international langauge: So the frogs in wells only would make this a big issues uncessarily.

        A request should be made immediately to Singapore Govt. to arrest and hand Mahendran over to be charged for financial crime.
        His assets in Singapore should be frozen pending the trial.
        So too Ajith Nivard Cabraal for bond scams and currency manipulation at CB.

        Ranil WIckramasighe must be held ACCOUNTABLE as he appointed and protected Mahendran aided and abetted him to do 2 bond scams. Ranil must RESIGN from PM post.

        The corrupt officials of the Bank of Ceylon which bank rolled Alloysius and Perpetual Treasuries should also be interdicted and tried for negligence, lack of due diligence and financial crimes.

        Funds looted from the country during the bond scam should be traced and seized to pay off some of the mammoth national debt, rather than piling VAT taxes onto poor people.

          Don Stanley,

          you are making you an idiot.

          COPE canonly recommend lankeninvestive bodies to do the job.

          Investigations are not yet started.

          You ask S pore authoriteis to confiscate AM s assets what jokers you should have been ?

          In the sametime, ones whose investigations for all various allegations (which are real ones)being under way, Rajakashes stay exercising impunity – what voice you have shined there ?

          Weperfectly know those men in Rajapakshe fmily have countless assets in the STATES and other countries. you or others stay mum ? why ?

          Please focus on the high crimes bieng investigated first before jump on to the assets of AM.

          Meaning not that AM should escape from investigations any means.

          Will the same law applly to those BOC officials who aided and abetted the said family and their cronies to remit money illegally to Seychelles, Dubai, Swiss banks as well?

          Agree with you, then who will run the country. We must get the bond money back to the country with compensation.
          We have no choice but to let RW carry on or the other worse offenders and looters will bribe their way with the looted money to regain power.
          we must demand high standards and good governance from the regime in power now. They should be seen to be bringing the bigger looters of the past regime to justice. Regime change at present is not to the benefit of the country. So be realistic.

        “How is he unfit and unqualified when he is an Oxford university and LSE graduate?”

        If he was fit, he would not have git himself into this position.He would have got consensus, and got more people involved to approve it.One of the beneficiaries was his son in law. Thre is a conflict of interest and ethics issue as well. These make him unfit despite his former education and experience.

        However, agree that the “President” Gon Sirisena Gamarala is not fit and do not have ethics, He was bought out by the Rajapaksas the stolen billions.

            He does not have a Doctorate in Economics.

            He was totally unfit and NOT QUALIFIED to be Head of CB.

          So the racism is why people have a issue with RM questioning his fitness to hold office nothing what so ever to do with Perpetual Trust and Anthony Aloysius.
          Wow what a insight. Next we ‘ill hear some high profile Arajuna Mahendran supporter most likely RW himself will proclaim Arajuna Mahendrand had suffered more than MKR junior and Nelson Mandela combined for his gallant work.
          But Waite this is a passing thought how much did Perpetual Trust pocketed Ah! sorry better not mention that it will be explained as reverse racism.

      RE: Arjuna Mahendran Bolts Overseas As COPE Report Presented In Parliament

      “Bringing an end to weeks of speculation and uncertainty, the highly awaited COPE report on the controversial Treasury Bond scam was presented in Parliament today.”

      “In his recommendation, Handunneththi said that legal action must be taken against Mahendran as he was responsible for the bond transaction.”

      Now he can take up a new position, join with Cabral, the former Governor, and try to manage the stolen billions by Mahinda Rayapaksa, Gotabaya Rajapaksa, Basil Rajapaksa, the other Rsjapaksas and their cronies.

      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arjuna_Mahendran

      What about his Son-in-Law, SIL? Is he taking Sil? He was the beneficiary.

      Controversy:
      In February 2015 CBSL advertised the sale of Rs. 1 billion in 30 year government bonds at an indicative rate of 9.5%. The sale was oversubscribed with 36 bids of totaling Rs. 20 billion. The majority of bidders, 26, bided for Rs. 100 million or less at a rate of 9.5%–10.5%. However, a few bidders, including Perpetual Treasuries Limited, wanted interest rates of 11%–12%. On 27 February 2015 the CBSL accepted Rs. 10 billion in bids at rates of 9.5%–12.5%. The issuing of ten times the advertised bonds, and at a higher than expected rate, was alleged to cost the Sri Lankan government an additional Rs. 40–45 billion ($300–$340 million). Perpetual Treasuries was issued, directly and indirectly, with Rs. 5 billion in bonds at 12.5%. Perpetual Treasuries was one of the primary dealers in the sale and is owned by Mahendran’s son-in-law Arjun Aloysius.

      Would Cayman Islands fit the bill?

      However, the losses created bu the Rajapaksas, the stolen loot, and the killings and murders committed by the Rajapaksas and cronies are much larger, and they are protected by the “President” Gon Sirisena Gamarala.

      In the meantime, the killer, the real criminals, like Mahinda Rajapaksa, Gotabaya Rajapaksa, Basil Rajapaksa, the other Rajapaksas and their cronies who did the killings are sst large and protected by the “President”, Don Sirisena Gamarala.

      Dearest disfunctional, corrupt UNP,

      It is time to rescue yourselves from your stupidity and arrogance. Not least the high-handed ways you are accustomed to, since 1948.

      You are at a historic crossroads in Sri Lanka’s history. You have an opportunity and a respnsibility of historic dimensions.

      Please do not bungle this chance as usual! You will never be forgiven. Respect Sobitha Thero’s legaccy.

      You have been catapaulted out of the dark, deep hole, you guys dug yourself into over the last 20 years. By hopeful people of this country.

      Powerful positions you have landed after 8th January revolution were hardly due to your own merits. You do not really deserve them. You will do well to keep that in mind.

      Clean up the CB mess in a transparent manner. Do not play dumb games with people’s trust.

      Then turn the wheels of justice full-force upon Rajapassa & cronies. Nobody can accuse you of a political witch-hunt then. Lock them up! One by one! No matter who. They must face the music.

      Otherwise cunning Raja in collaboration with our electorate of the bloody stupid will re-capture power. Before you know it.

      Hope you will adhere to people’s call!

      Do or die UNP!

      It is true that Arjuna Mahendran should be brought under justice.But we have no right to question about his qualification or fitness. We should ask ourselves whether we have any politicians who have the qualification or fitness to run this country. We are the ones who elected this government and former government. The former govt was run by uneducated and most corrupted Mahinda Family who robbed more than half of the nations wealth. What we are going to do with them? Do they qualify for Srilankan citizenship?

    What are the differences between
    ” Gothapaya frequently going abroad ” and “Arjuna Mahendran going abroad” ?

    I presume Arjuna has an Asian country passport and Gotha a Western country passport “. One can not say they secretly leave the country.

    Arjuna is close to Ranil. Gotha is close to Maithiri & Mahinda.

    Gotha is Mahindas brother. Arjuna is Alosiyas’s f-i-l.

    Gotha was a defence secretary accused of human rights violations and corruption through Avant Guard deals.
    Arjuna was CB Director ie the big boss accused of direct involvement in bond scam and giving illegal loans.

    What did Srisena said to Asad Ali : he has been telling in the cabinet meetings for months no action so he had to tell in public and use his presidential power to protect Gotha and the armed forces.

    Are JVP & JHU ready to put all the citizens interests first and make the country forward ? The majority of the majority wants either Yaha Palanaya or mahinda palanaya to run the country.

    Budhu Saranai!

      There is a big difference. Gota (not Gotha) is a brother of a corrupt politician who served a corrupt government. No peculiarity or anomaly there. In contrast Arjuna is a public servant who served a anti-corruption good governance government, which is expected to hold its office as an example not only to the future of SL, but also to the entire South Asia.

    This title is wrong. Afjun Mahendran was a Singaporean citizen eventhough Ranil appointed him to the Country’s central bank. Arjun did not have any responsibility to anything as he was a foreign citizen.

      Jimsofty, it is not the first time, that a nonsrilanken national was appointed to the post. Please check it for yourself and come with the facts man. Besides, those who grew up in the country and lost their citizenship later for some professonals related issues should have the chance to get it back. Some countries allow them to get it back while others not. There are also higher professionals that lost their passports of the country of origin while they were given the new citizenships of the countriee they joined with thier profesional taskloads. Even today, this has been not fully functional. Gota had abused the right being taken from them for a period of 3 years. Since the new govt is born, only atleast some thousands were offered duality. I think this is an issue to be corrected by the authorities. Even if the lanken counterparts would agree, some countries like Germany would never allow it easily. So hope the authorities would focus on this sooner than later. That way only they can gain the expertese of those profesionals back to the country. Country needs them, remains for the outer cover of the book sofar in some cases.

        Although the Govt. wanted the diaspora to invest in Sri Lanka and offered
        Dual citizenship, there appears to be a curb imposed by the Citizenship Div.
        of the I/E (under Hon. Navin Dissanayake). The percentage of Tamil applicants granted among the 17500 todate will be under 10 of such applicants
        whereas 90% of the 17500 are Sinhala applicants. The data-base will reveal
        this. Officers are awaiting to be bribed by Tamil applicants – as they have
        tasted it, from what is happening in that unsupervised Govt. entitiy.

        Information to the MFA Consular Div. has not brought about any change,
        whilst boasting of reconciliation is taking place.!

    I really dont know why the media make every hype ups just not knowing the AM is the key person to be accused for the bond scam. We perfectly know COPE is just a body to reveal those mismanagements of the public instituations, not a legal body to convict the accused eveen miles before them being investigated.
    As if COPE is born just yestreday, they react today.

    I think this must not to be in order to balance peace and harmony in this country.

    COPE were not even pronounced body at the time, Athigaru was abusing not only that but every instituation why ?

You can only be a fly frequently being found in the heaps of extrements of the highly courrpted men such as Rajanos. Please have you corrected through therapies, today is no too late. You guys need proper guidance should be clear to everyone to this date. Media men work as if they dont need to care of anything being misinterpreted by masses in this country. SO long there will be no system media men to correct them by themeselves, it will stay as it is. See how much Derana does to paint a nice picture for Rajas even today. So does Hiru. So does printed media even today. They mix up millions and billions no matter the illiterate people of your kind would go unturn. This has been a grand business – lucrative to the manner – akin to patronage given to drug trafficking by MR himself to Lanza for example. I heard my Minister, Ranajan saying that there are brave and biased judges are the case for many to escape through bailing outs today. There he is very right. The masses with brains will wordly agreee with him.

    People can be classified in to 4 categories.

    1. Good Hombres
    2. Bad Hombres
    3. Bad Non-Hombres
    4. Good Non-Hombres

    The Bad Hombre was the fall guy here while the Bad Non Hombre was the master mind behind the scam of the century where billions were stolen from the people.

    About one year back, the Bad Hombre was asked in a TV interview why he does not apply for Sri Lankan citizenship again. The Bad Hombre claimed that he would love to do that but that he cannot do it because his passport has been impounded.

    Now the Bad Hombre has run away. How did he get his passport back? You don’t need to be a rocket scientist to answer that. The Bad Non-Hombre got the passport of the Bad Hombre released so that he can run away.

    While the Bad Hombre is roaming the streets of Singapore freely, laughing the whole time, the Bad Non-Hombre goes about pretending to be the greatest democrat since Cleisthenes, plotting and scheming how to steal more.

    It only says, “they have found with any doubt A Mahendran had influenced in bond trading on 27th February 2015”. That is true, we all know he wanted to increase the accepting amount to 20 billion and board has accepted 10 billion. Is it a fraud and that had not happened all these years of bond trading (increase of the called amount)???.

    Other than that all general statements are stated by the COPE in recommendations.

      Richmond Peiris.

      In the west (for example UK) when the leader of the major party faces a general election (or referendum) and loses he resigns and takes responsibility for the defeat. He/She gives the mantle over to a new leader to try and win next time.
      For example David Cameron after the Brexit referendum.

      John Major

      William Hague

      In this case, this PM has refused ever to take responsibility for any defeat and has firmly entrenched himself. Without CBK/Rev. Sobitha we would still be under MR.
      Even with all the good will after his defeat, this PM could not win an outright majority. Why waste our time comparing this man to the west?

    Mahendran was aware of possibilities as soon as he was appointed Governor.
    And, of potential benefits for his son-in-law.
    Hence he turned a ‘blind eye’ when the bond auction was held, though it was his duty to supervise.

    He belongs in jail, for a very long time.
    He saw the ‘writing on the wall’ and has bolted.

    Sri Lanka is indebted to Perpetual Treasuries for Thirty Years !!

    It is stupid to say that Arjun Mahendran is not qualified to hold the
    position of governor of Central bank, Sri Lanka, as he had been a banker all his adult life, starting his banking career at the Central bank, He also had been a top executive in Banking industry abroad,
    having secured enough qualifications on paper,and experience before he accepted this position. Neither, PM Ranil is no fool to appoint him as governor CM without having required qualifications. We will not be surprised if Mahendran’ s photo appears on the news papers,soon,showing
    his return from where ever he went as he travels very often, whether on business or pleasure, no one knows. PM will not stoop to that level of sending a crook out of the country.

    The best bidder got the deal though Mahendran indirectly helped his
    SIL Aloysius to secure the deal. They have done it without infringing the law and the COPE can only blame him for the loss incurred by the
    bank and not charge him or Aloysius as they will be cleared by the court of any wrong doing. Mahendran let the PM down very badly with
    his greediness to help his relatives and he will pay for the sin in another form, some day, if he is proven quality of assisting his SIL,
    while remaining within the law.

    Dear Mahavansa,
    It looks like you and General Kamal Gunaratne are genetically connected to the writer of Mahavansa Mahanama Thero.
    It was 2500 years of Mahavansa 1 pride.
    It is going to be Kamal Gunaratne’s Mahavansa 2 for another 2500 years. Main differnce is no records of Mahanama’s confessions of not writing the whole truth. But Kamal Get has confessed that he can not reveal total truth of how the war was won.

    So Mahavansa, I don’t want to go back to any Middle Eastern countries or far eastern countries because during Rajapakse regime too many Sinhala Buddhist work force has inundated these countries. Yes I like Donald Trump to come to power so that no interference in internal matters or colonisation of Srilnka, by far eastern powers.

    I don’t understand why those who claim they are the sole bhumi putras of SL have to leave the country and earn a living in Islamic and Christian countries.
    Hope you listen to or read Azad Alis press interview related to learn how to swinddle sitting & running by the last palanaya and the current planaya.

    Budu Saranai to you Mahavansa.

    Ranil Mahata says that Mahendran did not runaway.

    But fro all the norms, he had run away. If the situation look normal sometimes, he may come back.

    It is same on him.

    A professional has be true too, on job related matters. That is the ethics. He just can lie. I thought he was professional, he just simply gave his ways to allow UNP elites loot. He had said to COPE that it was UNP influence allowed the CB be robbed. Now I do not see a reason to runaway.

    COPE decides by first responsibility. He has to face a court and tell the same thing. COPE is composed of purely 55% not (o/l) completed parliamentarians. Many of them are the one wanted New King to block FCID inquiry on Old Royals and have achieved it. Further, when Ranil asked TNA COPE members to for vote with him, TNA did not give in. This is an indication that there was political process going in the COPE investigation.

    Aloysius has filed a case, for libel, but he is probably in the looting. I do not see a reason for Mahendran’s runaway. Time for this guy to come back and tell truth to court. As have been the CBG first responsibility is his. If he was imprisoned he has to appeal it. He has to fight the case otherwise rather than hiding under UNP and protecting UNP. If show, this will become another reputation of Emil. He should not runway to protect UNP.

    All these comments being made by political crooks who are trying to discredit the government. Please understand that under the Rakapakse regime, the stooge Cabraal selectively awarded bond issues to his crooked mates and relatives of the MARA. What Mahendran did was to introduce a system of auctions which is the correct way to do it. As Mahendran has stated, his son in law Aloysius resigned form the Perpetual Trustees company on his appointee as governor, the issue of the bonds was handled by a separate designated unit within the CB an award made. Our uneducated MP’s who are in COPE would not know the ABC of what a bond issue is and asking them to form an opinion on the transaction is like asking a blind man to drive a car. The issues at hand are very straight forward, All RW needs to do is to get an opinion from a team of experts from the IMF on this transaction.

    According to the latest news In the Daily Mirror, Arjuna Mahendran is expected to return tomorrow (311.2020).
