Irked by the continuation of Parliamentary Select Committee (PSC) session today despite his ‘orders’ to the Speaker and Cabinet to suspend hearings, a desperate Sirisena has abruptly cancelled the Cabinet meeting scheduled for this morning.
Last week when he summoned an emergency Cabinet meeting at his residence, he was adamant that PSC hearings are brought to a stop as he has been advised by his lackey Attorney General Dappula De Livera that the hearings impact several ongoing cases in the Supreme Court linked with easter bombings.
Petty Sirisena also warned that if action is not taken to suspend the PSC, he would resort to boycotting government activities. Seems he followed up on the promise. No alternative date for the cabinet meeting had been informed yet.
Meanwhile the PSC is due to convene this afternoon at 1400.
