Oct 27, Colombo: The proceedings of the case against Former Defense Secretary Hemasiri Fernando and former IGP Pujith Jayasundera concluded today in the Colombo Magistrate’s Court.

Former IGP Pujith Jayasundera and former Defense Secretary Hemasiri Fernando have been charged with failing to take action to prevent a series of suicide bombings targeting Catholic churches and star hotels on Easter Sunday in 2019 despite receiving prior information.

When the case was taken up before Colombo Acting Magistrate Sanjaya Gamage today, the CID informed the court that a case had been filed against the suspects Hemasiri Fernando and Pujith Jayasundera before a three-judge bench of the High Court.

Accordingly, the CID requested the court to close the case against them before the Magistrate’s Court.

The Acting Magistrate granted the request and ordered to close the case against Hemasiri Fernando and Pujith Jayasundera before the Colombo Magistrate’s Court.
