President Maithripala Sirisena is reported to have told the Cabinet today that he would not accept the report compiled by the Parliamentary Select Committee (PSC) that probed the Easter Sunday carnage.

The PSC presented its report to parliament last week. In its findings, the PSC blamed the incident mainly on the lapses on the part of the State Intelligence Service and government leaders for failing to take action to prevent the attack that killed more than 250 people.

The PSC report was presented to the Cabinet at its meeting chaired by President Sirisena yesterday. According to informed sources, the President said he would not accept the report and asked the Cabinet not to record it as approved by the Cabinet whatsoever and instead asked the government to look into areas where security lapses had been highlighted. (Kelum Bandara)

    WHAT A WASTE OF TIME AND MONEY. THE PRESIDENT SHOULD HAVE HALTED PROCEEDINGS WHEN HE THOUGHT THAT WAS A GOOD THING. ALSO IT IS VERY CLEAR THAT IT HE WAS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE LAPSE IN THE SECURITY SYSTEM

    The President would have gladly endorsed the PSC Report if it had declared unanimously that the President is innocent and fully exonerated.
