Dec 03, Colombo: A special meeting of the parliamentary Committee on Public Enterprises (COPE) will be held today (Dec 3) at the parliamentary complex to discuss the actions to be taken in the future on the final report of the forensic audit conducted by the Central Bank of Sri Lanka on the Central Bank Bond Scam, Chairman of the Committee Sunil Handunneththi said.
Chairman Handunneththi said all members of the COPE Committee have been informed to attend the meeting.
The Presidential Commission appointed to investigate the Central Bank Bond Scam has recommended to the Central Bank to conduct the forensic audit.
The Presidential Commission has informed the COPE about the recommendation and accordingly, the COPE Committee, which met on March 22, recommended to the Central Bank to submit to the Committee a full report on how the forensic audit was conducted.
Since the COPE was unable to submit the Seventh Parliament COPE report on the Central Bank Bond Scam to the parliament before the parliament session ended, the Committee has decided to consider the report during the 8th parliament session.
