Select Committee Final Report to be submitted to Parliament today

The Select Committee to look in to and report to Parliament on the terrorists attacks that took place in Sri Lanka on April 21,2019, will submit its report with recommendations and preventive measures to avoid a similar type of terror attack, today to Parliament, states Deputy Speaker and Chair to the Committee Ananda Kumarasiri.

The Deputy Speaker said that the preparation of the 200-page report was nearing completion. In further elaboration, the Chair to the Committee highlighted that some newspapers have erroneously stated that the report will make charges against some politicians and officials.

“The Select Committee was appointed to look in to where things had gone wrong and what should be done to avert such attacks in the future” the Deputy Speaker said. He further said that “Parliament cannot decide on who should be accused or responsible for those attacks. That power is vested with the Judiciary. The role of the Select Committee was simply to look into where the shortcomings were.”

The creation of such a hostile situation within the Eastern Province, the failure of reporting such vital information accordingly, the lack of coordination among the Police and Security Forces, negligence in conducting a proper evaluation of the information received from intelligence services were areas which were looked into throughout the scope of the investigation.

Deputy Speaker Kumarasiri added the report identifies and provides recommendations and measures that should be taken to avoid future shortcomings as such of the Easter Attack.
