The Presidential Commission which probed the Easter Sunday attacks has not been able to uncover anything new, SJB MP Field Marshal Sarath Fonseka said yesterday.

Speaking during the debate on the Presidential Commission which probed the Easter Sunday attacks in Parliament there is no difference between the Presidential Commission and the Parliamentary Select Committee.

“I made my own report on the Easter Sunday attacks disassociating myself from the Parliamentary select committee though I was a member of it and I table by own report in the House today,” he said. “I cannot agree with the Presidential Commission’s decision to hold former Defence Secretary Hemasiri Fernando, as his post is merely an administration job. Defence Secretary has no power to make decisions pertaining to military operations.also I don’t blame the former IGP as they cannot carry out even security checks without the orders from the Defence Minister,” he added.

    His verdict is Sirisena is the main accused and he should be investigated by a Independent CID team.

    Yes, now we should compare both reports and come in to a right decision. Both reports blames Mythiripala Sirisena.. this is the reality.
