Necessary action to ban organisations such as Bodu Bala Sena (BBS) as recommended by the Presidential Commission of Inquiry (PCoI) into the bombings on Easter Sunday will be taken on the instructions of the Attorney General (AG), said Minister of Mass Media, Keheliya Rambukwella.
When queried as to whether legal action will be taken against former President Maithripala Sirisena as recommended by the PCoI, he said such matters will also be dealt with by the Attorney General.
Meanwhile, Minister of Public Security, Rear Admiral (retired) Sarath Weerasekera said files pertaining to the suspects in custody regarding the Easter Sunday bombings have been submitted to the Attorney General. He added the latter had appointed a team of 12 officers to study the PCoI report.
