Former President Maithripala Sirisena today denied the statement made by former Defense Secretary Hemasiri Fernando-regarding Former President- to the Presidential Commission of Inquiry into the 2019 Easter Sunday Attack.

The Former President’s Private Secretary Sameera De Silva said in a statement that the allegations made by Fernando regarding former President Maithripala Sirisena at the above Commission were completely untrue and malicious.

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

Mr Fernando added that President Sirisena 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.

“If the former President Maithripala Sirisena has the opportunity to appear before the Commission in the near future, we hope to clarify the facts regarding all the relevant statements,” the Private Secretary’s statement said.

    Makanal Sunday, 20 September 2020 05:16 PM

    A case of primary school children blaming each other. Such ridiculous;So shameful.

    Bernhard Eichmann Sunday, 20 September 2020 05:30 PM

    One blames the other.

    BuffaloaCitizen Sunday, 20 September 2020 06:22 PM

    You don't need to clarify, the public already know. The biggest mistake the citizens of this country make all the time is to vote fellows who should have been 3-wheeler drivers or Office Peons to become our Presidents

    Francis Sunday, 20 September 2020 06:32 PM

    What else the guy can do except denying. He should become mental patient soon if not already bastard

    ben navaratne Sunday, 20 September 2020 06:59 PM

    You have done so many blunders, and behaved very badly. You tried many time silly games Now no one will belive you And we do not need to have people like you on the planet

    Siribiris Sunday, 20 September 2020 07:10 PM

    What ever he says , people of the country knows what has happened .

    Martin Milton Sunday, 20 September 2020 07:22 PM

    One of the two is lying. Hope the PCOI will determine clearly who the culprit is without any bias. MM

    Sunil Sunday, 20 September 2020 07:28 PM

    Puhul Hora Karen Dane.

    Aviator Sunday, 20 September 2020 07:58 PM

    We know who's lying and who's not. Honestly, the worst president in the history of this beautiful land. A shame to have had him as the president of Sri Lanka. Much like Trump is to the US but then again, Trump must be a lot better than this piece of trash.

    FF Sunday, 20 September 2020 08:21 PM

    FORMER PRESIDENT YET TO MATURE

    Raj Sunday, 20 September 2020 08:58 PM

    Your strength as well as the curse going to be the 15!

    Niroshan Sunday, 20 September 2020 09:25 PM

    It is pathetic that this clown is back in parliament. He should have been in jail.

    Ronnie Bugger Sunday, 20 September 2020 09:32 PM

    If the former President of the Socialist Democratic Republic of Sri Lanka seeks to acquit himself from these accusations, he and the IGP in question should confront each other, face to face, instead of allowing a good for nothing, coat and tie toting nincompoop to acquit 'himself'.

    GHarry Sunday, 20 September 2020 11:37 PM

    Honored sir; Maithripala, do not mum on the issue any more, just declare how Ranil master minded everything behind this scenario with his stalwarts, please.

    Ram Monday, 21 September 2020 03:04 AM

    MS too should be cross examined before the Commission the same way some other witnesses including DIG Nilantha was questioned

    Azur Junaideen Monday, 21 September 2020 03:06 AM

    Sira the worst President SL had is thoroughly unreliable and cannot be believed. Mr President let him linger in the backbench this wasting tax payers money

    hoodwinker Monday, 21 September 2020 05:37 AM

    What a waste of time

    Neil Tuesday, 22 September 2020 02:35 AM

    This guy is a liar. I blame the UNP for fielding this liar for the election in 2015.

    Parakum Tuesday, 22 September 2020 05:44 AM

    Divine forces will punish the real culprit.

    MN Tuesday, 22 September 2020 02:56 PM

    His too much alignment to rogue Muslim leaders, like who manipulated him to release Wanathavilluwa suspects, put him in trouble,but regarding Mawanella incident ,there were some more politicians,who said those just concrete only

    Ups Tuesday, 22 September 2020 06:54 PM

    You came to power promising uphold democracy, defeating upcoming dictatorship, but , as President ,you decline presence of PM,deputy defense minister, IGP at national security council,you brought in your political acolytes ,won't let PM and others to do their responsibility to the country, that's too dictator 's behavior,your stupid innocence, made your mind to please extremist politicians ,your unnecessary interfere and release of would be suicide bombers,brought disaster to country
