Farcical probe of 2019 Easter Sunday attack
By Nabiya Vaffoor
Opposition Leader Sajith Premadasa promises apposite and translucent investigations, under a future SJB government, into the 2019 Easter Sunday terror attack.
“The public pointed the finger at the previous Government and alleged that we are responsible for that. They believed that an SLPP Government would arrest the culprits who were connected to this attack and those who aided and abetted them. The hopes and expectations of the 6.9 million voters have now been shattered,” claimed Premadasa.
He further alleged that the incumbent Government considered this incident as a political strategy to earn votes and now they attempt to turn a blind eye towards it. He also demanded the reasons to hide the facts that were subsequently uncovered about the Easter Sunday attack after 2019.
Premadasa expressed these views on 28 February at a public gathering in Hambantota.
