SLPP back-benchers go to CID against Manusha, Harin
Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) MPs lodged a complaint with the CID, requesting an investigation into statements made by Samagi Jana Balawegaya (SJB) Parliamentarians, Manusha Nanayakkara and Harin Fernando regarding the masterminds behind the Easter Sunday bombings.
The complaint was lodged with the CID and contains the signatures of 40 MPs of the SLPP.
Commenting on the complaint, SLPP MP Sanjeewa Edirimanne said, “Fernando and Nanayakkara continuously claim that they are aware of information with regard to the bombings. If so, they should inform law enforcement agencies about it. Every citizen is bound by the law to do so if they know anything about a crime. If they are trying to take political advantage under the guise of Parliament privilege, we are ready to take care of it ,”
MP Pramitha Bandara Tennakoon said, “We do not have the capacity to ensure the safety of the country and victims even though we have Parliament privilege,”
The Sinhale National Organisation has also lodged a complaint with the CID against Fernando.
