‘Can’t file Easter Sunday charges during my term’

Attorney General Dappula de Livera has informed the public that he is not in a position to present charges and indictments against conspirators and abettors of the 2019 Easter Sunday attacks during his term in office.

The Attorney General attributed this to the incomplete investigations by the Criminal Investigations Department.

Dappula de Livera is due to retire from his role as Attorney General on the 20th of May.

Senior Additional Solicitor General Sanjay Rajaratnam is being considered for the post. His name is due to be considered by the Parliamentary Council.
