No Police personnel charged over Easter Massacre yet: Minister

Colombo (LNW): As per the reports handed over by the Presidential Commission of Inquiry to probe the 2019 Easter Sunday genocide, no Police personnel have been charged in connection with the bombings thus far, asserted Public Security Minister Tiran Alles, responding to the Opposition in Parliament yesterday (20).

Police personnel have only been under observation, and therefore, it would be wrong to name certain individuals, as if they are already charged, until they are rightfully prosecuted, Alles said in response to Samagi Jana Balawegaya (SJB) MP Hector Appuhamy.

The Minister made these observations as a response to the allegation that several state officials are connected with the 2019 bombing which took away more than 260 lives.

He added that the relevant names of the personnel were handed over to the Attorney General’s Department for further proceedings, but they cannot be cited as suspects yet.
