President Ranil Wickremesinghe has appointed retired Supreme Court judge S.I. Imam to head a committee to investigate the allegations made by UK’s Channel-4 with regard to the Easter Sunday terror attacks.
The other members of the committee are retired Air Force Commander A.C.M. Jayalath Weerakkody and president’s counsel Harsha A.J. Soza.
The President's Media Division said in a statement that this committee’s primary mission is to investigate the serious allegations recently brought to light by Channel 4 in a broadcast video.
The allegations have added fuel to the fire, as a former attorney general has made similar claims, suggesting the existence of a mastermind behind the devastating Easter bomb attack.
To address these concerns comprehensively, the government is poised to establish a parliamentary select committee specifically to probe these disturbing assertions, said the statement.
The path to justice for the victims and their families remains at the forefront of the government’s agenda as these critical investigations unfold, it added.
