Colombo (LNW): Former Attorney General Dappula De Livera has been summoned to appear before the Terrorism Investigation Division (TID) tomorrow (19), over a claim he had allegedly made in 2019 pertaining to the Easter Sunday genocide.
Justice Minister Wijeyadasa Rajapakshe said the ex Attorney General at the time should have summoned the Police and ordered them to conduct further investigations corroborating his claim, which has created a certain degree of scepticism surrounding the probe into the massacre.
In 2021, days before his retirement, Livera claimed that “there is a grand conspiracy with regard to the 2019 April attacks.”
Rajapakshe added that the ex AG has been summoned to the TID to determine based on what information had he made the remarks leading to controversy.
