Former Defence Secretary Hemasiri Fernando was admitted to the ICU of the Cardiology Unit at the Colombo National Hospital, sources said.

Mr. Fernando was to appear before the Criminal Investigation Department this morning to give a statement over the Easter Sunday attacks.

Sources said that Mr. Fernando had reportedly informed the CID that he would appear before the CID next Monday.

Earlier, the Attorney General has instructed the Acting IGP to take necessary steps under the criminal procedure code by naming former IGP Pujith Jayasundara and former Defence Secretary Hemasiri Fernando as suspects and to produce them in the relevant Magistrate's Court after recording statements over the alleged criminal negligence and failure to prevent or minimise the Easter Sunday terrorist attacks.
