Minister orders immediate probe into Sirisena’s Easter Attack remarks

March 24, Colombo (LNW): Minister of Public Security Tiran Alles has directed Inspector General of Police (IGP) Deshabandu Tennakoon to initiate an immediate inquiry into the recent statements made by former President Maithripala Sirisena concerning the Easter Sunday bomb attacks.

On Friday (22), Sirisena asserted that he possesses knowledge regarding the true mastermind behind the 2019 Easter Sunday terror attacks and expressed readiness to disclose this information to the judiciary upon request or order.

Speaking to the media in Kandy, Sirisena underscored his willingness to reveal pertinent details while emphasising the judiciary’s responsibility to maintain strict confidentiality regarding such disclosures.

In parallel, Samagi Jana Balawegaya (SJB) Parliamentarian Kavinda Jayawardena filed a complaint with the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) today (23), urging for a swift investigation into the former President’s contentious statements.

These remarks have ignited controversy within the political sphere, casting scrutiny on the former President for allegedly withholding vital information concerning the tragic bombings that resulted in the loss of over 270 lives.

These claims appear in the midst of ongoing dialogues surrounding an allegation previously made by the British ‘Channel 4’ citing what it claimed as evidence from a former top state official and a political escapee that a conspiracy to bring forth a certain presidential candidate was behind the genocide.
