Through third party sources it was informed that former President Maithripala Sirisena's government had given Presidential awards to Senior Police officers including the then SIS Director for their involvement on investigating Easter Sunday attacks, former Terrorism Investigation Division (TID) Director DIG Nalaka de Silva yesterday informed PCoI probing Easter Sunday attacks.

The witness said this while responding to a question raised by the Commissioners on whether intelligence officials had received any awards after Easter Sunday attacks.

Silva also said that in 2018, he had requested from the secretary to the ministry of law and order to provide advanced technological equipment to monitor the social media.

"We have limited capacity and resources to monitor the internet. We were given demonstrations by various institutions, including the UN, on monitoring the internet,” he said.

Silva further said that he realized that since a lot of suspicious things now take place online, the TID needed such equipment for online monitoring purposes.(Yoshitha Perera)

    Why cant we hold top politicians responsible in this country for the crimes and wastage they have done. What kind of immunity are they entitled to. They are a waste to space.

    The general public is getting increasingly confused and frustrated that the real culprits will escape punishment. The law can be twisted and bent to save the culprits.
