Arjun Mahendran’s wife meets PM

Prime minister Ranil Wickremesinghe, who is presently on an official tour of Singapore, has been met with the wife of former Central Bank governor Arjun Mahendran, according to reports reaching Lanka News Web. The intention of her meeting with him is said to be in order to obtain bail for Mahendran.

After the PM arrived in Singapore, she has telephoned him several times and asked for a meeting. She also requested him to mediate and get her son-in-law Arjun Aloysius released.

Meanwhile, government sources say Aloysius will get bail not later than next Friday. His lawyers are due to submit a bail application to court on that day. 

Mahendran is in Brussels

Reliable sources say Mahendran is presently in Brussels, Belgium. A citizen of Singapore, he left for Brussels recently. 

He is delaying responding to court summons for him to appear before the CID to give a statement. He is likely to make an appearance once his son-in-law gets bail, reports say.
