Industrial Development Board (IDB) supplied Brass and Copper to 'Colossus', a company owned by Easter Sunday suicide bomber Insaf Ahmad Ibrahim during the period between 2017 and 2019, although the company had failed to operate within the given criteria, Sarath Udayasiri, Marketing Director of IDB informed the PCoI probing Easter Sunday attacks today.

Testifying before the Commission, Udayasiri said that the IDB had supplied Brass and Copper to ‘Colossus’ at concessionary rates. He told the Commission that 'Colossus' procured a considerable amount of scrap brass between 2017 and 2019, and this had affected the other small and medium scale enterprises. "Colossus received 35% out of the total Copper and Brass that were accumulated between 2017 and 2019," the witness said.

Udayasiri added that by the year 2018, the turnover of 'Colossus' exceeded Rs. 600 million. "So it was no longer a medium scale company. In 2017, it was registered as one," the witness said.

The witness further said when 'Colossus' had been registered in 2017 and it also did not have the certification of the Grama Niladari of the area where the factory was located.(Yoshitha Perera)

    Any minister can give instruction to favor his henchmen, but as a responsible officer, it is your duty to make sure that the paper work is properly completed. Where is your natural instinct to protect your position? Did you have a premonition that this project will produce bombs? Were there any other firms, who were given special treatment at your discretion?
