Ranil insists Sri Lankan youth who met ISIS not linked to Easter attacks

Former Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe today insisted that a group of Sri Lankan youth who met the ISIS in Syria were not linked to the Easter Sunday attacks.

Wickremesinghe told Parliament that when the youth returned to Sri Lanka, intelligence officers had closely monitored them.

He said that investigations found the youth had no links to the Easter Sunday attacks.

The former Prime Minister also said that the Government must submit investigations reports into the Easter Sunday attack to Parliament.

However, Minister of Public Security Sarath Weerasekera said that investigations into the attacks are still ongoing.

He said that once the investigations are over then all the reports can be tabled. (Colombo Gazette)
