’I am the one who told Rajapaksas were involved in Easter Sunday attacks’: Mervyn

In the wake of the video released by Channel 4 on the revelations about the Easter Sunday attacks where it speaks about the involvement of the Rajapaksas, former Minister Mervyn Silva said he was the first to reveal this fact.

"The Rajapaksas, Maithripala Sirisena and several politicians of that time should be taken as the first accused for the Easter Sunday attacks," he said.

"While not having a strong backbone, Maithripala Sirisena went to Singapore. He knew about the attack after one and a half days. The Easter Sunday attacks were launched because the Rajapaksas wanted to capture power again. The statement made by Archbishop of Colombo Cardinal Malcolm Ranjith is correct, and I respect him. This Easter attack has strong connections with high-profile politicians, and they let that disaster happen to give political power to Rajapaksas," he said.

"I totally accept what Channal 4 says. However, the Rajapaksas should be responsible for the Easter attacks," he added. (Chaturanga Pradeep Samarawickrama)

    Mervyn, why not you reveal the evidence you have, instead of making general statements which any individual could make against any party/s.

    Mervyn have you forgotten the Rupavahoni incident?

    Mohamed Wednesday, 06 September 2023 10:38 PM

    But the problem is that the nepotism clan members are immune from being prosecuted or taken action against them because they wield power in the legislature for the incumbent ruler to fool the people.

    Edie Thursday, 07 September 2023 04:36 AM

    Why can't Mervyn Silva go to CID and give all the evidence he has without giving voice cuts like a BAYAGULLA !!!!

    Adwani Thursday, 07 September 2023 05:01 AM

    @KSivalingam - No individual will make any statement unless he is fully aware.

    Sambo Thursday, 07 September 2023 07:01 AM

    No one asked for your 5 cents input.

    Kudu powla Thursday, 07 September 2023 08:08 AM

    Why don't you present you evidence in public? Let's see if you have a backbone.

    Ravana Thursday, 07 September 2023 10:06 AM

    Everyone knew but only you shouted it out

    Nish Thursday, 07 September 2023 10:15 AM

    Now I'm more than sure it's another false allegation. Look at the characters propelling it.

    Dr. K.M.C. Balasooriya Thursday, 07 September 2023 12:02 PM

    Dr. Mervyn, yes you proved to be a gentleman expressing the TRUTH saying Easter Sunday Attacks were pre-planned by Gota and Mahinda. We salute you Sir.

    Prof. J.K. Murugan Kanagaratnam Thursday, 07 September 2023 12:05 PM

    Yes, Dr. Mervyn Silva - you are 100% correct, you knew pretty well that Mahinda planned this attack to bring his brother Gota to power so that Rajapakshe could rule for another 20-30 years.

    G.G. Tennakoon - [Attorney-at-Law] Thursday, 07 September 2023 12:11 PM

    Great Sir, then why you go and file a case and win the case - people will make you as our President then. Now also it is not too late. You have enough secrets of Mahinda and Gota.

    Mahila Thursday, 07 September 2023 01:05 PM
