The report with details of the controversial bond issue that occurred during former Governor Arjun Mahendran’s term will be presented in Parliament before 13th October says the chairman of the Committee on Public Enterprises (COPE) JVP Political Bureau Member Sunil Handunneththi said in Parliament yesterday (7th).
Mr, Handunneththi said COPE would not be bowed by any force or interference and a full report on the bond scam would be presented to parliament. He said once the report is presented it is the Parliament that has the authority to take future action regarding it.
Mr. Sunil Handenneththi said this in response to a question asked by UPFA Parliamentarian Bandula Gunawardene. Parliamentarian Bandula Gunawardene said the report presented by the COPE did not have any details about the bond issue.
However, the Chairman of COPE Sunil Handunneththi said the report that had been already presented too have details about the bond scam and added that Parliamentarian Bandula Gunawardene had made a vicious statement. He said there was no sinister move to sweep the issue under the carpet; COPE was working according to a road map with regard to the Bond issue, and the details of it will be included in the next report which will come out before 13th October.
