The Colombo Fort Magistrate today (23) ordered the Attorney General (AG) to brief the court on the steps taken to implement the arrest warrant on former Central Bank Governor Arjuna Mahendran.

Interpol has already informed Sri Lanka that Arjuna Mahendran is in Singapore.

An Interpol Red Notice has been issued for Mahendran’s arrest as he is wanted in Sri Lanka over the central bank treasury bond scam.

Meanwhile, owner of Perpetual Treasuries Limited Arjun Aloysius and CEO Kasun Palisena have been further remanded until the 30th of August.
