Exclusive: Full Text Of Indictments In CBSL Bond Scam Case

Attorney General Dappula De Livera who took office in the immediate aftermath of the Easter Sunday terrorist attacks has taken steps almost immediately after his appointment to speed up indictments and a trial into the 2015 Central Bank Treasury Bond Scam.

Arjuna Mahendran

10 suspects including former Central Bank Governor Arjuna Mahendran who is currently in Singapore and Arjun Aloysius of Perpetual Holdings and several other directors of PTL that was the primary bond dealer at the centre of the fraud are set to be served indictments in the case on July 19, according to a media release by the Coordinating Officer to the Attorney General State Counsel Nishara Jayaratne.

De Livera requested the Chief Justice to allow the case to be heard before the Permanent High Court at Bar, which should ensure a speedy trial since the court can hear the case on a daily basis once proceedings begin.

Colombo Telegraph can exclusively reveal the full indictment against the Bond Scam suspects to be served to the accused on July 19.

    CT Come on why step motherly treatment for those who cannot read the damn thing. Why playing hide and seek. Ofcourse the whole nation have a right to read and understand.
    Sometimes CT is so immature in its behaviour.

      Bottom Line is US puppet Bondscam Ranil whose economic policies are drafted in Washington at the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) to benefit America and the global 1 percent, must be impeached for treason and grand larceny at the Central bank asap.
      So to Mangala the moron who is seeling SOFA and has passed legislation for MCC land grab so that any foreign company listed on the Stock Market can by land in Sri Lanka.

      This Act must be challenged in court and revered asap. MCC will need to pay Sri Lanka 500 Billion USD not a paltry 480 million or get out and close down the cursed US embassy whose diplomats were found with Bomb materials at the JAIC Hilton by Police sniffer dogs. US Special Operations Forces (SOF) bombs killed those who died in the Easter carnage – not swords in mosques although the media circus was staged to show otherwise

        Dinuk:
        Wild, totally unsubstantiated allegations, made under cover of a pseudonym do little but muddy the waters and prevent those responsible for this atrocity to be brought to trial and punished. Or is that your REAL intention? One can reasonably suspect you of being one of those building a smokescreen for the criminals who robbed us.

          EVP,
          I fear you are pouring water on a duck’s back. This “Dinuk” has many other aliases. She suffers from some sort of paranoia maybe brought on by a US visa rejection.

    Bond Scam Suspects,

    You are still suspects. Now there is a full indictment.

    Don’t worry. This is a Land like no other. Breaking laws, committing crimes, President carrying out unconstitutional coups, monks running amok and committing crimes etc. are all Para Entertainment Shows.

    Book some rooms in some hospitals. That seems to be the tradition these days.

    Ranil, Penthouse Ravi and almost all 225 got 3 Million and it’s multiples as profits. They all talk like Patriots. They played out public money earned by women working the middle east. they come in coffins 500 per year. They are the Sri lanka rulers and they say only way to develop the country is sell everything to companies of the International community. for further development make it a HyperState governed by Multinationals. Anything goes wrong with the rulers we reports to the US courts.

    Now look for the biggest rascal in the energy sector who has made billions of unexplained loot. He lives in great comfort most of the days in 5 star hotels.( I am told he has no office in Colombo and not even a tax file !)

    His latest deal is with RaviK ( the one who doesn’t remember things !) in the Turkish Barge scam that is said to provide energy to the country ! This is an Olympian racket to rob the country.

    You will know who this dark worm is if you check the Prime Minister’s entourage to Finland in 2016 where he went to source energy. The chap made a big point with energy suppliers in Europe by accompanying the PM as special guest. He was seated right in front when PM talked to Finnish officials. They must have wondered where the bad smell came from-PM or his buddy ?

    an interesting scenario if both ranil and gota are convicted

      Nalmen,
      Both Ranil and Gota will not be netted. This President Siras De Livera is the one stone to kill 3 birds. 1) Ranil. 2) save Sira from April 21 plot and 3) save Gota’s fraud case from proceeding.

      nalman,
      ATG De livera is to save Gota from the fraud case from proceeding, and save Sira from the April 21 bombing plots. So Gota won’t be Convicted.

    ” I FOLLOWED INSTRUCTIONS FROM THE PRIME MINISTER” – Arjuna Mahendran said it. Where is the “INDICTMENT” on that “MAN”? ” I was not AWARE of an “Undated” letter addressed to the Governor of the Central Bank, requesting to provide Rs. 70 |Million”. – Treasury Deputy Secretary Attygalla. Where is the “INDICTMENT” on the then Minister , Finance who issued that “Undated” letter . Prior to the “Bond Scam| there was a “TEAM” sent to meet the Governor of the CB and one of them was an “OUTSIDER” by the name Malik Samarawickrama. Where is the “INDICTMENT” on him? Where is the “INDICTMENT” on the Deputy Minister who published a “BOOK” justifying the “Bond Scam” who received “Millions” from the Perpetual Treasuries? So many to mention, on whom INDICTMENTS must be issued; but cannot do it with the restrictions stipulated on comments.

    Looking at the picture, I can hear what they’re talking:
    .
    Mahendran: Looks like we’ve bungled the job, and now we’re screwed!
    .
    Ranil: I don’t think so at all. I’ve waited for this for 40 years. You’ll see at the end who is going to screw whom!!

    Lankas “Low and Odor” update. Navy Chief Karannagoda has admitted to previous knowledge of abduction and murder of Tamil youths. Another military guy from infamous Tripoli” camp, Rajapaksa,s hand prints were found in Upali Tennakoon.s assault case. Will there will be justice in these cases or turn out to be an eye wash like Trinco Murders, where all accused were released due to lack of evidence ???(when there is evidence from an actual eye witness). What if this case turns to be another Dr. Shafi, s verdict,. Will Rajapaksa, Wimal and Rathana blame the high court like they did with CID. I hear BBS has declared Lanka has a Buddhist Country. Will Buddhist Laws soon replace the current ones ????(like in Arab Countries)
