The IGP Pujitha Jayasundara and former defense secretary Hemasiri Fernando appeared before the parliament special select committee that appointed to find out the fats about Easter Sunday attack.
They met at the 11:00 am on 6th in the parliament complex. Aftermath of the Easter Sunday attack, the defense secretary Hemasiri Fernando had resigned from his post due to the amounted pressure and the IGP was sent for compulsory leaves by the President.
In front of the committee, the IGP replying to the chairman that he was asked by the President to take all responsibilities of the failure to prevent the attack and resign from the police head post.the IGP further added that the President tried to offer an ambassador post if he resigned from his IGP post by taking the responsibility of not taking the security measures before the attack. But the IGP made sure for the committee that he informed all the high profile politicians about the possible attack as soon as he got the information about such attack.
But after the attack, the President vehemently denied that he was not informed about such horrible attack. Ironically, the parliament special select committee is revealing the hidden facts and those facts say again how the political leaders neglected the peoples safety even though they cheat the people day to day basis using the media.
