Immediately probe Maitri’s statement – Tiran tells IGP

Public Security Minister Tiran Alas has ordered Inspector General of Police Deshbandu Tennakoon to conduct an immediate investigation into former President Maithripala Sirisena’s recent statement about the Easter Sunday bombing.

Former President Maithripala Sirisena stated that he knows very well who the real criminals were behind the 2019 Easter Sunday bombing, and Samagi Jana Balawega MP Kavinda Jayawardena and others have filed a complaint with the Criminal Investigation Department.

“The suspects currently in remand in connection with the attacks are minor offenders. The real culprits are still at free. However, I am ready to make a special statement exposing the perpetrators of the Easter Sunday attacks,” he stated.
