Former Director of State Intelligence Service (SIS) SDIG Nilantha Jayawardena today rejected claims made by former President Maithripala Sirisena for not informing the National Security Council (NSC) that Zahran Hashim was a terrorist and a threat to the country’s security.

SDIG Jayawardena made this remarks while responding to a question raised by Shamil Perera PC who appeared for Archbishop Cardinal Malcolm Ranjith during the cross-examination.

In an interview conducted by a leading TV channel, former President Sirisena said that he was only told of Zahran Hashim as an extremist and not a terrorist.

Showing a video clip of the interview, Shamil Perera PC questioned the witness whether SIS Director had accepted the claims made by the former President.

Responding to the question SDIG Jayawardena said that at the NSC meetings he had clearly informed all the superiors in the country that Zahran Hashim was promoting the Islamic State (IS) ideology in the country and the so-called individual would be a grave threat to the stability of the country’s security.(Yoshitha Perera)
