Though reported “missing” it is learnt that Arjun Aloysius, former director of Perpetual Treasuries, has not left the country using either of his two passports.
The Attorney General’s Department told the Presidential Commission on bond issue that Aloysius possessed two passports – one Australia and the other, Sri Lankan.
The passport numbers too were previously obtained by the CID to prevent Aloysius from leaving the country while the investigations are underway.
With the CID confirming that Aloysius has not left the country, the investigators have intensified their search for the controversial businessman.
When the CID visited his house this morning, they were informed that the 33-year-old businessman was not at home.
They were also told that Aloysius, also the owner of Janayugaya newspapers, was not contactable.
Therefore, according to highly placed sources from the AG’s Department, the businessman remains “missing” at the moment.
The Presidential Commission of Inquiry (PCoI) investigating the Treasury bond scam issued orders on former Perpetual Treasuries Limited (PTL) Director Arjun Aloysius to appear before the Commission.
Aloysius was summoned to make a statement regarding evidence that has uncovered his complicity in communicating sensitive information to PTL CEO Kasun Palisena about the Central Band bond auction in 2015.
The PCoI informed Aloysius’ lawyers to convey their order to appear before the Commission to him.
It is learnt that Aloysius will be summoned before the CID to record a statement on his alleged involvement in the bond fiasco.
Speaking to Asian Mirror, a highly placed Police source said Aloysius’ appearance before the CID would be just a ‘matter of time’.
He said the CID had unearthed concrete evidence to establish his involvement in the bond controversy which caused a monstrous financial loss to the government.
