Maithripala mum on Easter attacks report 

By Easwaran Rutnam 

Former President Maithripala Sirisena has remained silent on the Easter Sunday attacks report.

When contacted by Daily Mirror, a spokesperson for Sirisena said that the former President did not wish to comment on the report at this moment.

He said that anyone can say anything but the former President had decided not to respond to the allegations in the report at this moment.

The report was compiled by the Presidential Commission of Inquiry (PCoI), a commission appointed by Sirisena.

In the report the Presidential Commission has proposed criminal action against former President Maithripala Sirisena.

The report said based on the evidence, it is of the view that there is criminal liability on the part of former President Sirisena for the acts or omissions pertaining to the attacks.

The PCoI has recommended that the Attorney General (AG) consider instituting criminal proceedings against Sirisena under any suitable provision in the Penal Code.

The report further proposed that criminal action be instituted against former Inspector General of Police (IGP) Pujith Jayasundera as well.

The PCoI report has also held former Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe accountable for the failure to prevent the attacks.


  1. The truth is the good governance government leaders believed the West and India beyond their mandate as the leaders of a county. The good governance leaders were too busy in persecuting its opponents and pleasing the West and India, instead of keeping an eye on terrorism. Between April 2015 and November 2017, I was in Sri Lanka and persecuted everywhere I go, I could not sleep peacefully. In Jaffna, the perpetrator pepper sprayed into my eyes, stole my smartphone, Australian passport and Sri Lankan NIC. While I was in Kandy, the perpetrator broke my parents’ house and stole my laptop. The perpetrator also followed me in Colombo and threatened to kill me. I did not inform to anyone about my moments in Sri Lanka. The question is, how did the perpetrators know my exact location? Surely, the good governance government was behind the perpetrators. I had reported to the Sri Lankan police six times, but the perpetrator is free to carry on even though I have a witness.
