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.
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.
