Former President Maithripala Sirisena on April 24, 2019 informed former IGP Pujith Jayasundara that if he accepted responsibility for the co-ordinated terror attacks on April 21, 2019 and resigned from his position, he would be given the pension and a position as an ambassador in any country he wished to serve, former Defense Secretary Hemasiri Fernando yesterday informed the PCoI probing Easter Sunday attacks.

Testifying before the Commission Mr. Fernando said that after President Sirisena's communication, former IGP Jayasundara had come to seek his advice in this regard.

However, Fernando said that he could not attend to the former IGP's matter because it was a serious issue. "I asked him to discuss the matter with his family members," he said.

Mr. Fernando further added that the former President had informed Jayasundara that he could be released from the Commission headed by Supreme Court Judge Vijith Malalgoda which investigated the causes and background for the coordinated terror attacks. (Yoshitha Perera)

    Why did this 'good for nothing' Hemasiri wait eighteen months to say this. One thing is bloody clear, the damn coat and tie political gentry should not be trusted beyond one's tip of the nose.
