President Sirisena yesterday in his desperation to clamp down on information that was being revealed about his part in Easter Sunday bombings announced, all those who testified before the Parliamentary Select Committee up to date are those who have left service and added hereon he will not allow any officer on active duty to testify before the PSC.
Sirisena’s earlier claim was a balatant lie; not all those who have testified so far are out of service. National Intelligence Chief, Sisira Mendis who testified before the PSC at its inaugural sitting was serving in his position even as Sirisena uttered those words last evening.
Soon after Sirisena uttered that lie during his meeting with the Police Chiefs last evening, he made it a point to clarify his statement noting , “We even removed Sisira Mendis from his position.” Another blatant lie.
Even less than 24 hours into Sirisena’s lie, Mendis has handed in his resignation a short while ago citing health complications.
