President before PSC

 President before PSC

President Maithripala Sirisena appeared before the ParIiamentary Select Committee probing the Easter Sunday attacks and testified for nearly two hours. He gave his testimony in camera at the Presidential Secretariat on Friday.

Speaking to the media, Chairperson of the Committee and Deputy Speaker Ananda Kumarasiri said.

“We wanted to get a clarification from the President on many matters particularly stemming from other testimonies where he (President) had been mentioned. In one instance, the statement given by the IGP Pujith Jayasundara to the Malalgoda Committee deferred from the one he had given before the PSC and hence we wanted to get a clarification on those matters.

The President was kind enough to share a copy of Justice Malalgoda’s report with us. We found that some of the recommendations were similar to us and we will be looking at ways to amalgamate both recommendations from their report and ours. No other part of their report will be made public.”
