Although there is an extradition law in the country, there could be certain hindrances in bringing such suspects who were behind Easter Sunday attacks and currently in abroad with the existing legal provisions, the Additional Solicitor General (ASG) who represented the Attorney General's (AG) Department said. 

The ASG pointed out to the Commission that there is a matter whether the existing legal provisions are adequate to conduct a successful investigation.

"When preparing the final report of the Commission, we have to consider mainly on the above points, which could pose an issue in the future when conducting fair investigations," the ASG said.  

The ASG further said that the United States has already indicted three suspects in connection with April 21 suicide attacks, but the question arises as to whether there were adequate legal provisions in Sri Lanka's legal system to cover such a situation.

She further requested the Commissioners to consider making the final recommendations whether the existing legal provisions are adequate to prevent such a situation in the future.

The PCoI probing Easter Sunday attacks officially concluded it proceedings yesterday (27) and the Commission will submit its report to the President on January 31. (Yoshitha Perera)
