The then finance minister Ravi Karunanayake, Central Bank governor Arjun Mahendran and eight others have been released from 11 out of the 22 charges against them over the Rs. 15 billion Central Bank bond scam in 2016.

Colombo High Court trial-at-bar today (06) ruled that ‘public property’ charges could not be pursued against the defendants, following a submission to the same by their lawyers.

On a request by additional solicitor general Priyantha Nawana, the court fixed 26 January for the next hearing to decide if the charge sheet in the case should be amended or withdrawn.
