The AG has told the IGP to arrest the MPs, including former Minister Johnston Fernando, if there is sufficient evidence against them.

Among the suspects named by the AG are MPs Johnston Fernando, Sanath Nishantha, Sanjeeva Edirimanne and Milan Jayatilleke as well as Senior DIG in charge of the Western Province, Deshabandu Tennakoon and Dan Priyasad. (Colombo Gazette)


  1. Ask yourself an important question.

    Do you think that the AG, MPs as well as Senior DIGs can expose the mastermind of mob violence on 9th of May without any fear?

    Does the country has an environment to uphold justice and fairness? If not, Sri Lanka has no hope and the situation will get worse.

    I gave up my hope on Sri Lanka in 2017.

    In 2017, a foreign puppet who didn’t even pass GCE O/L sprayed pepper spray into my eyes and robbed my laptop, Australian passport, and smart phone. I have a witness. I identified the culprit and lodged six complaints with the Sri Lankan police, but the police did nothing. Not a single Sri Lankan media outlet reported the incident.
