It was revealed before the Presidential Commission probing the controversial Central Bank bond issue today that 905% more bonds to that of the necessary bonds to generate money for the government had been offered to the market by February 27, 2015.

Testifying before the Commission Auditor General Gamini Wijesinghe stated the government auctioned bonds to generate 10.058 billion rupees; it received only 9.658 billion rupees thereby incurring a 400 million rupee loss to the government.
