Jan 10, Colombo: The Parliamentary Committee appointed to conduct a broad internal investigation into the disorderly conduct in parliament during the political crisis will be submitted to the Speaker tomorrow (11), Deputy Speaker Ananda Kumarasiri said.

A copy of this report will also be submitted to the Attorney General's department with the permission of the Speaker to take future course of actions.

The report consists information about the tense situation witnessed on 14th, 15th and 16th November last year.

The Deputy Speaker, who chaired the Committee also emphasized that a resolution has to be passed in the parliament in this regard before taking any future actions.

Meanwhile, the police are still investigating the incidents that had taken place on the floor of the House on 14th, 15th and 16th November 2018.

During the two parliamentary sessions on 15 and 16 November, the lawmakers of the United People's Freedom Alliance (UPFA) supporting the appointed Prime Minister attacked the Speaker, and brawled with the opposition members in an attempt to disrupt the vote on a no-confidence motion against the Prime Minister.

During the Nov 16 session, MPs of the minority government attacked the police officers who escorted the Speaker into the Chamber, with chili powder mixed water and hurled chairs and books at the opposition MPs. Several police officers and opposition MPs were injured in the attacks.
