Minister denies claims intelligence officials met Zahran

Minister of Public Security Sarath Weerasekera today denied claims that intelligence officials had met Zahran Hashim prior to the Easter Sunday attacks.

Weerasekera told Parliament today that the claims made by opposition Parliamentarian Harin Fernando was false.

The opposition MP had claimed that the meeting took place at the residence of Zahran Hashim.

Fernando had alleged that Zahran Hashim’s wife Abdul Cader Fathima Hadiya had stated that State Intelligence Services visited Zahran Hashim before the attacks in April 2019.

The Minister of Public Security said that Harin Fernando had made a false statement in Parliament and that no such meetings took place. (Colombo Gazette)
