Deputy Solicitor General Says Police And Intel Apparatus Uncovered Definite Proof Of Active Suicide Bombers On April 17

Deputy Solicitor General says Police uncovered definite proof of active suicide bombers operating in the country on April 17 and this was promptly communicated to both the suspended IGP Pujith Jayasundara and ex-Defense Secretary Hemasiri Fernando immediately.

Appearing before the Colombo Magistrate, producing Pujith and Hemasiri as suspects in Easter Sunday bombings, DSG Thusith Mudalige said a team of Police officers were sent to Kattankudy on April 17th to probe an explosion in the area that was reported to the Police on April 16.

“There, the Police team uncovered definitive proof of suicide bombers and this message was conveyed to then IGP Pujith on April 18th by the State Intelligence Service along with details of the exploded motorcycle as well as addresses and phone numbers of those involved,” he added.

This statement however is contradicting to the testimony made by the Kattankudy OIC before the Parliamentary Select Committee probing Easter Sunday bombings. He told the PSC that they have not yet even received the Government analyst report on the motorcycle explosion that occurred in Kattankudy and going by the crime scene, they were only able to confirm that it was an man-made explosion.

He told Courts that the initial warning was issued to both Pujith and Hemasiri on April 4 and thereafter on April 18. On April 19th the SIS Chief forwarded another letter to both Pujith and Hemasiri as well as a Whatsapp message on the impending attacks on April 20th.

“Repeated warnings were shared by the intelligence services, but these two individuals did not take adequate action to prevent it,” he added.

Pujith and Hemasiri were arrested by the CID on Tuesday after Attorney General Dappula De Livera issued instructions for the duo to be arrested as suspects who aided the Easter Sunday bombings and the subsequent loss of lives and property damage.

Colombo Chief Magistrate Lanka Jayaratne remanded the duo until July 9 and ordered the suspects to be produced before courts that day.

    Dappula will do all he can to become the next CJ. He won’t let his hair down until that is achieved.

      The AG has yet to answer to three important questions: 1. Why the president, as the head of the national security, didn’t summon the IGP & the heads of forces to give any written or verbal orders to take “proper” actions immediately? 2. Why didn’t MY 3 convened security council meeting immediately to discuss the situation? 3. Why didn’t he convened a urgent cabinet meeting to inform the situation?
      Remember, in a situation of national importance, IGP cannot act alone; he needed orders from the president who was in charge of military & the police.

      Looks that way. But does that mean that the incumbent CJ Jayantha Jayasuriya would retire while Sillysena is in office? Is it that soon? If everything is political and if and when a change in regime takes place and Dappula is still the AG where can he be dumped? For starters he can be sent on compulsory leave like Pujith Jayasundara. But these are fellows who can also say “Sir kiyana Onema Deyak karannam” (I would take off my pants if so commanded.)

    The ultimate responsibility of this crime should go to non other than the president Sirisena. If Sri Lankan judiciary is reluctant to take him to courts, then we should try international jurisdiction to get justice to the people who died from this crime. Sri Lankans should not rest until we hang the bastards who are responsible for this.

      Jayantha de Alwis,

      Sirisena is a Para-Sinhala Para-“Buddhist “. Of course, he is the worst of the tribe.

      Para-Sinhala Para-“Buddhism” is an insult to Pristine Buddhism and to the Buddha.

      Sirisena is a Traitor, Sevalya (sleaze), Pachaya (liar), Mala-Perethaya(living off the dead) and a Para-Sinhala “Buddhist “, a worst kind, but one of many, including the Para-Monks.

        Amarasiri,
        Sirisena is not a ‘Para Sinhala’, he is a Sinhala ‘Paraya’ (Rouge). ‘Para’ in Sinhala means ‘Foreign’ e.g. ‘Para Sudda’, ‘Para Demalu’. Sinhalayo are not foreign to this Island.

        Prof. Raj Somadeva’s path breaking archeological research have shown with solid evidences that Sinhalayo evolved in Sinhale from Homo Sapiens lived in this country 125,000 BP confirmed by OSL method. This evidence was found in Pathirajawela in Hambantota District. His conclusion is both Sinhalayo and Vedda Eththo are native people in this island. DNA of Sinhalayo and Vedda Eththo are very close. He also has found evidences to prove that Sinhala language evolved in this country.

        Please watch if you can understand Sinhala:

    This is a nother cover up to clear the president and his henchman jayawardena. And dappula is the best person to do president’s bidding as he is dappula ‘s appointing officer. Can u expect an unbiased inquiry? Dappula has come along way being a political pawn of the leader. He will go the extra mile to be the next CJ!

    Shows the disharmonious, selfish and atmosphere of mistrust prevailing in the taxpayer funded Public Services.
    Most of the higher echelons are political appointees.

    When was the President informed of these planned attacks and who informed him? Even is no one in SL informed him, when RAW provided security to him in India they would have told him as its RAW that gave the tip off to SL. Can anyone believe that RAW is so inefficient not to inform the President when he was on their soil and when they are providing security?

    President is under the impression that putting his head under the cover like an Ostrich, taking a pleasure trips to India and Singapore could help him runaway from responsibility of being responsible for security of the country, which is very clearly entrusted to him by Constitution. Keeping IG and even Defense Secretary at bay by not allowing them to get actively involved in security of the land, now he has found a DAPPULIYA to try an unsuccessful attempt to divert the responsibility elsewhere.
