Several prominent ministers of the government have objected to the Governor of the Central Bank Ananda Coomaraswamy for not publishing the forensic audit report on the controversial Bond Scam inquiry, reports said.

None of the politicians who were accused of defrauding the country's public funds through the Central Bank bond scam have been indicted by the forensic audit and the persons directly responsible are high ranking officers of the Central Bank at the time of the incident, internal sources disclosed. 

Finance Minister Mangala Samaraweera on several occasions has also requested the CB's governor to publish the audit report, however, his silent policy amidst the heat is suspicious, a front figure minister revealed. 

The report was prepared following a request by the opposition to conduct a forensic audit to find out the real facts about the Central Bank bond scam.
