The Criminal Investigations Department (CID) has informed Former President Maithripala Srisiena and Former Prime Minister Ranil Wickramasinghe to notify the investigators of a possible date in order to obtain statements from the duo in connection to the Central Bank Bond scam probe. The CID has requested the former President and former Prime Minister for a date after June 22.
Accordingly, it is expected that the CID will visit Sirisena and Wickramasinghe at their residences to obtain the statements.
The CID informed the politicians of their need to obtain a statement after the Attorney General Dappula De Livera last week instructed the Acting IGP C.D Wickramaratne to obtain statements from Former President Maithripala Sirisena and Former Prime minister Ranil Wickramasinghe in connection to the Central Bank Bond scam probe. He also asked the Police to obtain statements from Former Advisor to Prime Minister R. Paskaralingam and Former General Manager of People’s Bank Wasantha Kumar.
The Acting IGP has been asked to obtain statements on the orders of the Presidential Commission of Inquiry appointed to investigate the issuance of treasury bonds from February 1, 2015, to March 31, 2016.
