Report next week into any UNP involvement in bond fraud Featured

A committee tasked with inquiring into any UNP MPs’ connections to the Central Bank bond auction issue is to handover its report to prime minister Ranil Wickremesinghe next week.

Appointed at the party’s last working committee meeting, this committee is headed by minister Thilak Marapana and has banker Ranjit Fernando as a member among others.

The report is to be prepared within two weeks of its appointment.

Handunnetti said so at a media briefing at the JVP head office in Battaramulla on January 19.
