Central Bank Governor Dr. Indrajith Coomaraswamy yesterday gave evidence before the Presidential Commission of Inquiry (PCoI) on the controversial Central Bank bond issue.   

He is the first person to give evidence on this matter. 

The PCoI comprises Supreme Court Judges K.T. Chithrasiri and P.S. Jayawardena, and retired Deputy Auditor General Velupillai Kandasamy.   

Meanwhile, the public hearings on the bond issue are being held at the Commission office in the Courts Complex from yesterday.   
The commission was appointed by President Maithripala Sirisena last month with a mandate to inquire into the bond issue and submit a report by March 31.   

The commission met for the first time on February 6, to map out its procedure of work.
