JO wants bond commission report copy before debate Featured

The joint opposition says it wants to have a copy of the entire report by the presidential commission that inquired into the Central Bank bond sales, before a parliamentary debate is held on the report.

JO leader Dinesh Gunawardena says they will make a request in that regard at the party leaders meeting due for today (09).

Also, they will ask for an adequate duration allotted for the debate, he says.

Meanwhile, ex-finance minister Ravi Karunanayake went to the president’s office yesterday and applied to have a copy of the report.

The prime minister’s office as well as the JVP have previously made similar requests.
