Attorney General (AG) has informed Special High Court that Interpol has informed former Central Bank Governor Arjun Mahendran has changed his name to Harjan Alexander.
Former Central Bank Governor Arjuna Mahendran, who is a prime suspect in the infamous Central Bank Treasury Bonds scam is currently reportedly living in Singapore.
Last month several Sri Lankan newspapers reported that Arjun Mahendran has changed his name to avoid Interpol arrest. But Arjun Mahendran writing to Colombo Telegraph website denied the accusation.
Former President Maithripala Sirisena last month said that he placed 21,000 signatures to files required to bring back to this country former Central Bank Governor Arjun Mahendran from Singapore.
The former President also claimed that he had personally asked the Singaporean Prime Minister to assist in extraditing Arjun Mahendran.
