Wijedasa Rajapakshe Calls For The Arrest Of Defence Ministry Secretary And IGP Pujith Jayasundara: Also Slams UNP MP Mujiber Rahuman

Parliamentarian Wijedasa Rajapakshe has written a letter to  President Maithripala Sirisena requesting him to arrest Defence Ministry Secretary Hemasiri Fernando and IGP Pujith Jayasundara over their failure to avert the Easter Sunday attacks. 

Rajapakshe, a former Justice Minister, said the Defence Ministry Secretary and the Police Chief, neglected the intelligence reports which indicated about possible terrir attacks in SriLanka. 

In his letter, Rajapakshe had stated that both Fernando and Jayasundara were responsible for the failure in the intelligence system. 

Meanwhile, speaking in Parliament yesterday, Rajapakshe said UNP MP Mujiber Rahuman should also be held responsible for the loss of lives, as the latter cursed him when he first revealed that some Sri Lankans had received military training from the Islamic State. 

Rajapakshe made this statement in 2016, when he was the Justice Minister. "At that point, members of our own government held press conferences and asked for my blood. They should take responsibility for the carnage today," he added.
