The Colombo Chief Magistrate Lanka Jayarathne today ordered former Finance Minister Ravi Karunanayake to appear before the Criminal Investigations Department(CID) for providing false evidence to the Presidential Commission of Inquiry(PcoI) probing the Central Bank bond scam.

Karunanayake has been ordered to appear before the CID within the next two weeks.

Yesterday(28), President Maithripala Sirisena instructed the Presidential Commission of Inquiry to expedite investigations on the 2015 bond scam at a meeting held at the President’s Secretariat.

Sirisena at the meeting said the delaying of the bond scam investigations was an impediment to implementing justice.
