The Colombo Chief Magistrate ordered former finance minister Ravi Karunanayake to appear before the CID within two weeks.

The order was issued in connection with making false statements before the Commission probing the Central Bank Bond Scam.

The Attorney General’s Department told the Court that Minister Karunanayake has not shown any interest to report to the CID and make a statement ever since the Case was opened on September 14th of last year.

Though he reported to the CID on the 7th of July this year, Karunanayake did not make a statement in full to the CID and, thereby he ignored the CID when it called on him several times to complete it.

The State Counsel further told the Court that Karunanayake was informed several times over the phone as well to complete his statement; he ignored the messages everytime.

Therefore, she requested the court to issue an order on the minister to give his statement in full to the CID in order to speed up investigations.

Accordingly, Colombo Chief Magistrate Lanka Jayarathna ordered minister Karunanayake to appear before the CID and give a complete statement.
