The alleged Treasury Bond scam is probably the largest financial scam to hit this country in its post-independence history. For sheer impunity and involvement of a wide spectrum of politicians in collusion with a section of the corporate sector and regulatory authorities it is hard to beat. The muted response of the opposition exemplifies the rot in the governance of this country. It is unforgivable it took place under a so-called ‘Yahapalanaya’ government which was elected with much hope under trying circumstances to usher in ‘good governance’ after the traumatic Rajapaksa years.
(PRESS RELEASE) – The Bank closed the 9 months ending 30th September 2017 with a post-tax profit of Rs.3,002 Mn, a moderate growth of 6% over the corresponding period last year. These results were impacted by provisions made on account of a legacy NPA, payment of which is due from the Compensation Tribunal.
S. A. P. Suriyapperuma who has held several senior positions in the public and the private sector in the past was appointed as the chairman of the Development Lotteries Board by the Hon. Minister of Finance and Media Mangala Samaraweera on the recommendation of the President Maithripala Sirisena.
Ravi Karunanayake sacrificed his pride and position by tendering his resignation to save the Maithri-Ranil government cabal. He could have faced and defeated the no confidence motion against him if Maithri (who owes his Presidency to Ravi) and Ranil Wickremesinghe had stood by him, but their cowardice will be recorded in history. The bond scam has been a controversy for over two and a half years and the main culprits did not include Ravi K as a key player.
Member of Parliament Ravi Karunanayake, the former Minister of Foreign Affairs and Lotteries who tendered his resignation from his ministerial post last Thursday, diabolically lied and withheld crucial information when providing evidence at the Bond Scam investigation.
