Exclusive: CID consults AG on possibility to arrest former President Sirisena and former SIS Chief Jayawardena

The Criminal Investigation Department (CID) has reportedly consulted the Attorney General on the possibility to arrest former President Maithripala Sirisena and former Director of the State Intelligence Service (SIS) Nilantha Jayawardena over the allegation of failure to avert the Easter Sunday Massacre which killed more than 270 people three years ago.

Having a profound effect on the Sri Lankan government, Archbishop of Colombo, His Eminence Malcolm Cardinal Ranjith is currently in the Vatican with 60 victims of the genocide to meet with the Pope. Sources claim that the Catholic Church is preparing to file a lawsuit at the International Criminal Court (ICC) in the Hague, the Netherlands, in connection with the attack.

In the backdrop, the authorities have decided to arrest Sirisena and Jayawardena who have been accused of being failed to avert the attack but are not prosecuted with any charge to date, in an immediate measure prior to such an international move being proceeded, sources claimed.

There is a risk that the parties responsible in this country may not be able to go to any country where Catholic communities live, should such a case be filed at the ICC, sources further added.
