Request to proceed with bond scam case with 2 accused in absentia
The Colombo High Court trial-at-bar has been requested to proceed with the Central Bank bond scam case with two of the accused in absentia.
Singapore has begun the extradition of ex-CB governor Arjun Mahendran, the attorney general’s representative informed the court.
But bringing former director of Perpetual Treasuries A.G. Punchihewa from Malaysia is practically impossible, the representative said.
The court is to be kept updated about Mahendran’s extradition process.
The trial-at-bar scheduled further hearings for 03 December.
