The Attorney General’s Department today informed the court that four CDs containing telephone conversation recordings submitted to the Bond Commission have been altered by Perpetual Treasuries Limited (PTL).
Senior State Counsel Lakmini Girihagama, appearing on behalf of the Attorney General, notified Fort Magistrate Lanka Jayaratne that certain conversations in the disks have been altered and erased before they were handed over to the commission.
She stated that this unlawful act has been committed by PTL CEO Kasun Palisena, Chief Dealer Nuwan Salgado and IT officer Sachitra Devathanthri under the instructions of Arjun Aloysius, the second defendant in the case.
The magistrate ordered that the four aforementioned CDs containing the audio recording obtained from the Bond Commission as well as four other CDs of recordings provided to the CID by the Chief Compliance Officer of PTL Vathani Jesudasan be sent to the Government Analyst and obtain a report.
The case was postponed until July 20.
