Accordingly, the Attorney General submitting two letters to the Acting IGP with this regard has requested for a full criminal investigation against IGP Jayasundara.

The letters have further requested full criminal investigations against the former Defense Secretary Hemasiri Fernando, the National Intelligence Chief, and the Commanding Officer of the Special Task Force and the Senior DIG of Western Province.

The letters have instructed for disciplinary actions against these officials through the National Police Commission over negligence of duty.
