President requested to appear before PSC

Deputy Speaker of the Parliamentary Select Committee (PSC) appointed to investigate the Easter Sunday attack, Ananda Kumarasiri, has written to President Maithripala Sirisena requesting him to give a date and time to appear before the PSC.

However, the President had earlier said he would not give evidence before the PSC.

The Chairman of the PSC stated that if the President fails to give evidence before the PSC, the final report will be prepared and handed over.

The proceedings of the PSC were due to be concluded on the 23 August and as the final report was not prepared it was extended until 30 September.
