The forensic audit on the Central Bank (CBSL) bond issuance comprises of 5 reports and nearly 10,000 pages of attachments, according to Chairman of the Committee on Public Enterprises (COPE) MP Sunil Handunnetti.
As the report is extensive, it will not be easy for parliamentarians to gain a broad understanding of the matter before the Adjournment Debate on the 18th and 19th of February, he pointed out.
He said that it was possible for the COPE committee to have complied a summarization of the report through discussion as the relevant forensic audit was carried out on the recommendation of the COPE committee and the Presidential Commission of Inquiry investigating the Bond Scam.
However, the COPE committee could not meet due to the adjournment of Parliament, he pointed out.
However, the forensic audit report will be called for discussion at the COPE committee in the future, the Chairman said.
