I had no intention of leaving the country at this time – Cabraal

Former Governor of the Central Bank Ajith Nivard Cabraal says that he had no intention of leaving Sri Lanka at this moment.

A court order was issued yesterday (07) banning him from traveling abroad, he said.

“I had no intention of going abroad at this time. There was a personal trip planned a few months ago, but even that had to be postponed from time to time with work. I was planning to go on that trip for the New Year holidays but later I gave it up too. Because under the current situation, if I had left the airport, the media would have told that I had fled the country. But if I came back no one would distribute the news that I had returned. I have no reason to flee the country, and I will not. Some political figures are making up stories to get the attention of the media ” he said.

Ajith Nivard Cabraal has been barred from traveling abroad until the 18th of this month in connection with a case filed in the Colombo Magistrate’s Court by Keerthi Tennakoon and Maithri Gunaratne, who held governorships during the previous government.
