Arjun’s time is up!

The time given to former Central Bank Governor Arjun Mahendran to report to the CID lapses today (08).

The summons issued by the Colombo Fort Magistrate’s Court Judge Lanka Jayaratne to appear before the CID prior to March 08 has so far not been handed over to Mahendran.

The CID had taken measures to have the summons couriered through express mail to Mahendran’s address in Singapore. However it was later revealed that he was not at the address given by Mahendran. The courier who had taken the documents to be delivered had called Mahendran’s telephone in February.

Mahendran had notified the courier that he would be returning to Singapore in February.

Meanwhile, the CID had also taken measures to notify Mahendran through SMS and email about the summons.
