Parliamentarians reaction to PM’s visit to Singapore
Political representatives say that Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe, who is currently in Singapore, should be able to return with the fugitive former Governor of the Central Bank, Arjuna Mahendran.
UPFA Parliamentarian S.M. Chandrasena stated that when they had heard that the Prime Minister was visiting Singapore that they were happy because they had expected him to bring his friend, Arjuna Mahendran back to the country.
Chandrasena also continued to say that Mr Wickremesinghe would not hand over the country’s treasury, the Central Bank to someone who he would not know and therefore should be certainly knowing his whereabouts.
“We want him to bring Arjuna Mahendran back to the country, in the same flight he will be travelling in. Neither the FCID nor the CID has to go in search of Arjuna Mahendran. There is no need to spend money to bring him back. If the Prime Minister can bring him down, on the same budget for his visit, we think it will be beneficial to the country” added Chandrasena.
Meanwhile, JVP Parliamentarian, Sunil Handuneththi stated that the best way to locate Arjuna Mahendran is to send a camera behind the Prime Minister.
