Considering the recommendations of the “Special Board of Inquiry Appointed to Inquire into the Easter attack on April 21, 2019”, Attorney General Dappula de Livera has directed the acting IGP to initiate criminal investigations against nine police officers over their lapses to prevent or minimise the incident.

Deputy Inspector General of Police Colombo, Deputy Inspector General of Police Western North, Deputy Inspector General of Police SPR, Senior Superintendent of Police Negombo, Superintendent of Police Colombo North, Assistant Superintendent of Police Negombo 3, Assistant Superintendent of Police Negombo 4, Officer in Charge Katana Police Station and Officer in Charge Jampettah Police Station, were among those officers.

The Attorney General has also directed the Acting IGP to refer the matter to the National Police Commission for suitable disciplinary actions against the nine officers, coordinating officer to the AG, SC Nishara Jayaratne told Daily Mirror.

On an earlier occasion, the Attorney General had also directed the Acting IGP to initiate a criminal investigation conducted by the CID against the Inspector General of Police, ex-defence Secretary, State Intelligence Chief, Commanding Officer of the Special Task Force and the Senior DIG of the Western Province.

    Poor scapegoats. According to the IGP,the Police is not at fault. The Special Board has done the hatchet job handed over to them by deflecting the blame.
