President refuses to appear before PSC

President Maithripala Sirisena today insisted that he will not appear before the Parliamentary Select Committee on the Easter Sunday attacks even if he is summoned.

The President told media heads at a meeting today that in his opinion the Parliament Select Committee is a drama scripted by Temple Trees.

Sirisena said that he has, however, so far not been summoned to appear before the PSC.

Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe is among those who have been summoned before the PSC and the Prime Minister has said he will appear and make a statement.

Several key officials, including defense officials, have been questioned by the PSC so far. (Colombo Gazette)


  1. This is nothing but a disaster. Ranil doesn’t have a problem with the PSC why Maithripala has? Can you imagine Maithripala’s behaviors if he has a PhD qualification?
