The UNP says no member of the party has been proved responsible for bond scam.

United National Party General Secretary Kabir Hashim said there are no findings against any member of the United National Party including Ravi Karunanayake with regard to the issuance of Treasury Bonds.

However, the Commission of Inquiry has decided that the Attorney General and the Bribery Commission should determine whether action should be taken against Parliamentarian Karunanayake under the Bribery Act or other appropriate legislation in respect of their findings that he had derived a substantial benefit from the lease payments made by an associate company of Perpetual Treasuries Ltd.

meanwhile, a committee appointed by the UNP leader has recommended that until the Attorney General or Bribery Commission reach a decision on taking legal action against MP Ravi Karunanayake, he should step down as Assistant Leader of the UNP.
