The Attorney General has directed the Acting Inspector General of Police (IGP) to name Inspector General of Police (IGP) Pujith Jayasundara and former Defence Secretary Hemasiri Fernando as suspects of the Easter attacks.

Further, the Attorney General has requested the Acting IGP to produce them before courts, stated the Attorney General’s Department.

Coordinating Officer to the Attorney General, State Counsel Nishara Jayaratne said the Acting IGP was instructed on the matter last Thursday, however, no action has been taken in this regard.

Accordingly, the Attorney General has directed a letter to the Acting IGP, calling him to state reasons for not implementing the instructions.

The Attorney General last Thursday instructed the Acting IGP to name the former Defence Secretary and the IGP as suspects of Easter attacks, on the evidence revealed through investigations that the duo is culpable for the deaths and the major property damage caused by the attacks.

The special investigation board, after considering the facts and documentary evidence, has uncovered that the former Defence Secretary and the IGP’s criminal negligence and excessive delinquency have caused the casualties and property damage in the terrorist attacks on the 21st of April.

State Counsel Nishara Jayaratne added that the Acting IGP is yet to respond to the letter directed to him today.
