Summons on CB director to give details about computer check of former CJ's private account.-Video
The Central Bank director in charge of private bank monitoring was served summons today ordering him to appear before the Court on November 3rd.
The summons was issued when the Shirani Bandaranayake assets case was taken before Colombo Chief Magistrate Gihan Pilapitiya at Hulftsdorp Court complex.
The case was filed by the Commission to Investigate Bribery or Corruption against former Chief Justice Shirani Bandaranayake charging that she did not divulge her private assets.
On a previous hearing, the Chief Magistrate had granted permission to check the private bank account of Shirani Bandaranayake through computer experts.
However the Central Bank had informed that a single process of such bank account checking would cost 472 thousand 200 U.S. Dollars and it would take four years to complete the process.
Accordingly, the Central Bank Director in charge of monitoring private banks has been ordered to provide details with regard to their claim on November 3.
