Arjuna Mahendran yesterday told the Presidential Commission of Inquiry investigating the Treasury bond scams that he had not taken the oath of public servants when he assumed duties as the Governor of the Central Bank.
Giving evidence before the commission, Mahendran said that he had not been aware of such a protocol. Nor those who appointed him to the post had informed him of it.
Mahendran said so in response to questions raised by Senior Additional Solicitor General Dappula de Livera PC.
Senior Additional Solicitor General: You told this commission under oath that you would state only the truth nothing but the truth.
