The Colombo Fort Magistrate’s Court today re-issued an arrest warrant on former Governor of the Central Bank of Sri Lanka (CBSL) Arjuna Mahendran.
The court re-issued the warrant as the prosecution is currently working on getting a ‘Red Notice’ from Interpol for his arrest.
The Criminal Investigations Department (CID) informed the court today that it has filed an application seeking a red notice from Interpol.
Meanwhile the owner of Perpetual Treasuries Limited (PTL) Arjun Aloysius and CEO Kasun Palisena were further remanded until April 12.
The Colombo Fort Magistrate’s Court had initially issued an arrest warrant on the former Governor of the Central Bank on March 15.
Fort Magistrate Lanka Jayaratne had issued the warrant on Mahendran, who is named as the first defendant in the Central Bank bond scam case, on the assessment that he is absconding after considering a request made by the CID and the Attorney General’s Department.
Mahendran has been charged with criminal breach of trust for allegedly providing confidential information of the Central Bank to Perpetual Treasuries Limited, a primary dealer connected to his son-in-law Arjun Aloysius.
