Extradition request on Mahendran forwarded to Singapore

The Foreign Ministry forwarded extradition request of former Central Bank Governor Arjuna Mahendran to the Sri Lanka High commission of Singapore for onward transmission to the Singapore Foreign Ministry, Attorney General’s co-ordinating officer, State Counsel Nishara Jayaratne said.

These documents which had been signed by President Maithripala Sirisena, had been handed over to the Foreign and Defence Ministries by the AG’s Department.

Mahendran, a main suspect accused of causing massive losses to the government by illegally issuing treasury bonds of the central bank in 2015, has been evading arrest in Singapore in the backdrop of court warrants and an INTERPOL alert issued for his arrest.
