Golden Key saga : Presidential order for Finance secretary, CBSL governor

From SL Mirror
Presidential Secretary - Anil Amaratunga has formally informed the Finance secretary and Central Bank governor to pay the remaining sum to Golden Key depositors.
This measure has been taken on the directive of President Maithripala Sirisena on the complaint of a depositor, reports say.
Although the payments should be done to the court ruling on Oct. 23, 2009 with regard to the SC(FR)191/2009 case, the former CBSL governor had misled the judiciary and secured a court order on March 30, 2014 to pay back just 41% of the deposit.
Afterwards, the courts had ordered on July 29, 2013 to pay back 50% of the deposit instead of the 41%.
However, the depositor's complaint had cited that the CBSL was preparing to payback the depositors overlooking this court order, providing the respondents the opportunity of getting away with paying less.
