Chairman of the Committee on Public Enterprises (COPE) MP Sunil Handunnetti said the Central Bank Bonds scam had proved beyond any doubt that the current regime, which came to play cards, had ended up playing casino instead.
He said that the melee that took place, when Parliament was convened for a special session on 10 January, would have been thoroughly enjoyed by one of the biggest culprits behind the Bond scandal, former Central Bank Governor Arjuna Mahendran, who is currently in Singapore.

The MP noted that scores of people throughout the country, who were eagerly waiting to listen to the contents of the report compiled by the Presidential Commission of Inquiry, which probed the Bond scam, were instead forced to watch a brawl in the House between two sets of rogues.
