Regarding the Easter attack, former President Maithripala Sirisena’s revelation demands immediate attention, says the National Movement for Social Justice. The translation of the full statement is as follows:

The public statement made by former President Maithripala Sirisena, in which he claims to know the real individuals responsible for the Easter attack, arguably the most meticulously planned, horrific, and barbaric act of terrorism in Sri Lanka, has become the central focus of all institutions responsible for crime suppression and the judiciary. The National Movement for Social Justice, which we represent, strongly underscores the importance of addressing this matter urgently.

This statement by former President Maithripala Sirisena holds significant weight for several reasons. Firstly, Mr. Maithripala Sirisena held the position of head of state at the time of this horrendous terrorist attack. Therefore, his potential insights into the facts established during the investigations conducted in the aftermath, as well as his familiarity with the institutions involved in these inquiries, are of paramount importance.

Secondly, the timing of this revelation is crucial, given the ongoing uncertainty surrounding the identities of the principal individuals behind this heinous attack. Thirdly, Mr. Maithripala Sirisena is the sole individual to publicly claim knowledge of the primary perpetrators involved in the attack. Moreover, he is one of the most prominent figures to have held leadership roles in the country.

As the National Movement for a Fair Society, we call upon all law enforcement agencies and the esteemed judiciary to accord the utmost attention to this statement made by former President Maithripala Sirisena.

Furthermore, we emphasize the nation’s primary responsibility to ensure that all investigations and legal proceedings concerning individuals linked to the brutal Easter terror attack reach a logical conclusion. It is imperative to take maximum measures to ensure justice for all victims, including those from the Catholic and Christian communities.
