Former President Maithripala Sirisena has to take the sole responsibility of the coordinated terror attack that took place on April 21, 2019, and the tragic incident was a well planned attack, former IGP Pujith Jayasundara yesterday informed the PCoI probing Easter Sunday attacks.

Testifying before the Commission Mr. Jayasundara added that after he had received the report about the April 9 intelligence alert from State Intelligence Service (SIS) Director Nilantha Jayawardena, he had forwarded it to SDIG of Western Province Nandana Munasinghe, SDIG Crimes, STF Chief M. R. Latif, DIG Special Protection Range Priyalal Dassanayake and Director of Terrorist Investigation Division (TID) Waruna Jayasundara, and also they had been informed about it over the phone.

Mr. Jayasundara said that he also telephoned all SDIGs in charge of the respective provinces.

Witness claimed that, though he had given specific instructions about the possible terror attack to all the senior police officers, however, during the investigation he found that all his telephone call records were found deleted.

"Former President Sirisena's brother was the head of the Sri Lanka Telecom and Mobitel during this period. The Commission should probe thoroughly to find what had happened to these call records," he said.

Former IGP also claimed that his phone conversations had been tapped by the SIS and also deployed officers near his residence to monitor him.

Witness also said that Abdul Latif Jameel Mohammed, who blasted himself at the Dehiwala Tropical Inn Lodge, had met intelligence officers 45 minutes before he blew himself. (Yoshitha Perera)

    Maitri We cannot believe what sort of a man you Think back and see what you have done for this country except that you went around the world at our expense. As president of a country you all must live for all the people of this country irrespective of their race and religion.

    A traitor is always a traitor. Still there are some mentally unstable believing traitor. But day by day more and more proofs unearthed by natural cause of justice.

    I don't like Pujith Jayasundara as he did a bad job, but what he says about Sirisena is correct. Sirisena should have been in jail long ago. Who else is protecting this man?

    If this former IGP is to be believed then Former President Srisena must have been the real IGP masquerading as the President but failed to carry out his police duties.

    This maybe true, but what we all really want to know is who is the original 'mastermind' behind this whole 'terrorist attack'

    Time to investigate whether Intelligence had a hand in this for an objective. Please watch the great true story film - "Our Brand is Crisis"

    Shocking exposure. Will the Commission investigate what former IG said in evidence?

    Hussain Friday, 25 September 2020 10:09 AM

    Gingpinxi Friday, 25 September 2020 04:36 PM

    After Easter attack, In May 2019, He went to China when Minuwangoda was in fire. Then he went to Kazakhstan or some other Russian country on same month. Check why he went ?

    Rathnavali Saturday, 26 September 2020 11:30 PM

    Shocking news! Sirisena were you acting alone or are you part of a bigger group of conspirators? I think this was his master plan to get rid of the Yahapalanaya government.

    Anthony. R Monday, 28 September 2020 04:38 PM

    There's No smoke without Fire. Only time will tell as Repercussions follow. Maithri may have aided and abated? ??? Let Justice prevail.

    AB Monday, 28 September 2020 07:25 PM

    We are following this for sometime, what we feel is Sirisena behaved as dictator, releasing suspected terrorists who were in custody,giving unacceptable pardon to a woman who damaged Sigiriya frescoes and murderer from rich family, announcing, he will change verdict of learnt supreme court judge,close door of security council door to PM and Dy.minister ,running all around the without giving priority to national security, Sirisena is blameworthy and deserved to be punished
