Three member bench for Bond case Featured

The government has decided to appoint a three member High Court Bench to expedite and complete the cases implementing the Bond transaction and large scale corruption and fraud reports by having the required laws passed by March.

The President is said to have issued the relevant advice to the Attorney General in this regard while the formulation of required laws will take place during the next few weeks, it is reported.

It is believed that the legal measures for this purpose has already commenced under a four member expert panel headed by Additional Solicitor General President’s Counsel Murdu Fernando.

The AG had notified the Commission’s former Secretary to forward all the confidential documents recorded as evidence by the Special Presidential Commission appointed to investigate the Bond scam, which runs into thousands of pages, to the AG’s office for further legal action.

A part of these documents had been sent to the Attorney General last Friday.
