Former Prime Minister and UNP Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe has raised serious concerns over the findings of the Easter Sunday attacks saying there were still many unanswered questions which needed to be looked into.

Mr. Wickremesinghe told the Daily Mirror that while the former government was indeed responsible for the security of the country during its tenure, information was not shared with him on time and even to date some questions had received no answers."there were two issues involved. One is why did the information come late to the government about the possibility of the attacks. They had briefed the

President in February, but before that there had been no major report coming in. So what happened there?" Mr. Wickremesinghe said.

"Secondly, during the last few days we had information which came from the Indian side. I find that this is very incomplete. When I got in that day, soon after the attacks, and spoke to the intelligence and other security agencies after the bomb blast, within 9 hours they had identified Ibrahim and others and cracked open the case and had gone into Dematagoda. That means when they are under pressure they can work really well. Why was it that they could not tell us about Zahran and the others earlier?" he questioned.

He further warned Sri Lanka was heading for an economic crisis by the end of the year and a lack of funds was the main reason that the government had not been able to purchase the anti COVID-19 vaccines or place the sufficient number of orders to cover the necessary population.(JAMILA HUSAIN)

    make a kottu out of it so that the report will never see an end and culprits will never be brought to justice. We know how the politicians work in this wonder of asia.

    You failed, you are just nothing, we don't want to waste time and energy listening to you Ranil.

    The PM and IGP were not invited to Security Council meetings held under the auspicious of the President Sirisena. The PM

    Mythiripala Sirisena and you ruined our nation, now our Hon. President

    One question Ranil,!! How did the funds amounting to Rs.5 BILLION channelled to build Sharia University in Batti, didn't come through official channels!!?? Huh!!

    No one is interested in your talk man. You and Appaya (Sirisena) did the damage to our motherland.

    If you did your job properly, there won't be any issues. You are the most unreliable leader of this country; just above Sirisena. You destroyed all the people, hopes, and expectations. Still awaiting to be the next leader! Not in this life, if he follows a religion!
