Speaker of Parliament Karu Jayasuriya will announce the decision pertaining to disclosing the Forensic Audit Report on the bond issuances of the Central Bank of Sri Lanka to Members of Parliament at the next sitting on the 21st of January.

The Parliament Public Communications Department said the Forensic Audit Reports have been received by Parliament while the Speaker has taken measures to abstain from releasing the report to MPs on the instructions of the Attorney General.

During the party leaders meeting held yesterday, the MPs requested that the audit reports be released at the earliest.

The MPs pointed out that the forensic audit report contains information on the bond crisis prior to 2015 claiming that it is necessary for MPs to be aware of its particulars.

Speaker Karu Jayasuriya today met with Attorney General Dappula de Livera in Parliament before reaching a final decision on the matter.

Accordingly, the Speaker will announce a decision next Tuesday.
