Appropriate action would be taken against those responsible for Easter attacks: Chamal

Chairman of the Presidential Commission to Investigate the Easter Sunday Terrorist Attack Minister Chamal Rajapaksa said the most appropriate action would be taken against those responsible for the attack after a thorough study of the commission report.

During his visit to the Detagamuwa Tank development project under the Kataragama Town development plan, he said the government would do justice to the victims on the findings of the report.

Commenting on the ongoing development endeavour, he said the government’s policy was to protect and develop the country’s assets for the benefit of the people and not to sell them to foreigners.

“The ongoing Detagamuwa Tank development project would serve for dual purposes. It would provide irrigation facilities throughout the year to the farmers while being a tourist attraction. At present more than ten tourist resorts in Kataragama and Tissamaharama provides facilities to thousands of tourists visiting the area.(K. D. DEVAPRIYA AND M. K. NANDASENA)

    These buggers always play the same old record, no? Action will be taken and yet not a single behind the scenes scoundrel has been arrested- talk is so cheap for these guys!

    The way things are going on we need to destroy all carpets in Sri Lanka. So, nothing can be hidden under the carpet.

    Would be taken, would be taken, would be taken, but never taken even after nearly two years.

    Rajapakses will never take any action against Maithri and Ranil. They will never disclose who was behind this human slaughter. Release the full report.

    Well then you will take action against Mythiripala Sirisena also. Correct.

Cardinal, all others get join to make island wide protest against this absurd step taken by the government to avoid 'know everything' about Easter carnage

    Some can sniff who are behind this inhuman act. Power greed is the main motivator. Why is Cardinal keeps silent when he knows the factors and actors of this well plotted story.
