Karunanayake had noted that through the President’s special statement on the bond scam report, only he was implicated and as such he needed a copy of the report at the earliest.
Even the Prime Minister has not received a copy
Meanwhile the Prime Minister’s office stated that although a request was made to the President’s office seeking a copy of the bond report, they too had still not received a copy.
Although the Prime Minister had made a request from the Speaker to convene parliament and hold a special parliamentary session top debate the bond issue, no one seems to have received a copy of the report as yet.
Ravi’s lawyers reject report content
On a prior instance, Ravi Karunanayake’s lawyers told Sri Lanka Mirror that as the Central Bank was not under Karunanayake at the time the incident had taken place, these allegations were baseless and he should not be held responsible.
They claim that Karunanayake had testified before the bond commission with the aim of assisting them find the true offenders, and his evidence cannot be dismissed as false evidence.
