Hemasiri and Pujith further remanded


Inspector-General of Police (IGP) Pujith Jayasundara, who was sent on compulsory leave, and former Defence Secretary Hemasiri Fernando have been further remanded until the 22nd of January.

The Colombo Additional Magistrate delivered the order when the two defendants were produced before the court today (06).

The duo was arrested for allegedly committing a criminal offense by failing to prevent the coordinated terror bombings on Easter Sunday this year, even after receiving forewarnings on the attacks.
