Easter Sunday attacks truth will be revealed by PSC: PM

Colombo, July 13 (BAN/ AD): Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe has said that Parliamentary Select Committee (PSC) probe will reveal truth behind Easter Sunday attacks. PM said the court had accepted the legality of the PSC despite various opinions by some individuals.

PM was addressing press at ‘Temple Trees’ residence when he made the statement.

PM said “We have nothing to hide. Therefore, I am not afraid to go before the Committee.” He also added “We first launched operations to detect the terrorists. We were able to make it a success. Next, we appointed a Parliamentary Select Committee to look into the miscommunication of the intelligence information.”

He said that problem was the miscommunication of the intelligence information and the failure of the National Security Council to pay attention to the intelligence information. He also said the Government hoped to pass new laws with regard to the eradication of global terrorism and to enable work in collaboration with international intelligence agencies for this purpose.

PM Wickremesinghe also said “We were also able to reveal a lot of important information during the debate on this No-Confidence Motion.”
