The joint opposition yesterday urged the Speaker to table the letter sent by the Attorney General stating his views on the Parliamentary Select Committee appointed to inquire into the Easter Sunday attacks.
UPFA MP Dinesh Gunawardene who raised this matter said the Speaker should table the letter in the House so that MPs could get to know what the AG had said on the PSC.
“Members are unaware about the views expressed by the AG on the PSC so we will like to know about them,” he said. “As we understand from the statement made by the President, the AG has informed him that there are issues pertaining to the PSC. We should know about them.”
UPFA MP Nimal Lansa also wanted the AG’s letter tabled in the House saying he was making this request on behalf of the Catholics in Sri Lanka.
Deputy Speaker Ananda Kumarasiri who was in the Chair said he would inform Speaker Karu Jayasuriya about this matter.(Yohan Perera and Ajith Siriwardana)
