Mahendran takes up position as advisor to Sri Lanka’s PM

July 28, 2016 (LBO) – Former Governor Arjuna Mahendran has taken up an appointment as an advisor to Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe in the area of investments, a government official said.

Mahendran did not seek re-appointment for the position of Central Bank governor last month as a COPE investigation into treasury bond issues had not been completed.

President Maithripala Sirisena subsequently appointed Indrajit Coomaraswamy as the Governor of the Central Bank.
