- PSC report states President failed in numerous occasions to give leadership and also actively undermined government and systems including having ad hoc NSC meetings
By Kelum Bandara
President Maithripala Sirisena is reported to have told the Cabinet yesterday that he would not accept the report compiled by the Parliamentary Select Committee (PSC) which 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.
