Easter Sunday bombing probe:

40 investigations incomplete to prosecute suspects

Forty files of police inquiry conducted on the suspects of April 21 Easter Sunday bombings are incomplete. Therefore, the Attorney General’s Department cannot prosecute any of these suspects, the Attorney General’s Coordinating officer and State Counsel, Nishara Jayaratne, told the Daily News yesterday.

She said the Attorney General having marked the investigation files concerned as “Incomplete” returned them to Acting Inspector General of Police, C.D.Wickremaratne so that the inquiries concerning the suspects can be properly concluded for the determination of legal action. The police had arrested over 200 suspects in connection with the Easter Sunday attack.

Asked by the Daily News if these files had been forwarded to the Attorney General’s office as unfinished investigations, Jayaratna said those investigation files had been sent with cover letters indicating that they had been unfinished.

Asked if there could be more such files with unfinished investigations being carried out on the suspects of the Easter Attack, she said there would be more such files that would require the suspects to be properly investigated.
