Important information is being revealed regarding the fraud committed by buying Greece government bonds with public funds during Mahinda Rajapaksa regime say reports.
Information that has been revealed indicates that US$700 million had been used to buy Greece bonds. This is more than the amount reported earlier. The amount in Sri Lankan money is Rs.77,000 million.
If this information is true Yahapalana government should take legal action against Ajith Nivard Cabraal, the Governor of Central Bank during Mahinda Rajapaksa regime, for inflicting a colossal loss to the country say financial analysts.
Information regarding the investment of a large amount of money to buy bonds made when Greece was heading for economic ruin was first revealed by the JVP. The Leader of the JVP Anura Dissanayaka revealed and opposed the move in Parliament.
