JVP MP Bimal Ratnayake today questioned as to what action the government intends taking about the failure on the part of the Attorney General’s Department to take steps to ban National Thowheed Jama'at when the Terrorist Investigation Unit made requests to this effect twice.

Mr. Ratnayake said the TID had made two requests in 2017 and in 2018 to ban NTJ but the Attorney General's Department had done nothing about it other than binding time. He said the government is bound to take stern action on this shortcoming.

Leader of the House Lakshman Kiriella said a court case has been filed against NTJ leader Zaharan while the intelligence units were going behind him. “ However this activity by the TID was thwarted as a result of changes made against an Intelligence Chief on an assassination attempt of a VVIP,” Mr. Kiriella said.

    The AG's Dept of SL does best one thing, that is to cover up crimes committed by the Govt.

    The present AGs department is worse than the CTB. Do not expect President to take any action against AG since latter is the one who does all dirty work for President.
