COLOMBO (News1st): Diverse views have been expressed against the report of the presidential commission that probed the 2019 April 21st attacks.

“The individuals who were directly linked to the attacks and those who had abetted the bombings, need to be uncovered,” Mahinda Amaraweera, the Senior Vice Chairman of the Sri Lanka Freedom Party said.

He pointed out that the SLFP has decided to reject the report as it fails to cover these areas.

State Minister D.V. Chanaka insisted that the perpetrators of the attacks would be punished regardless of their political affiliation.

“All individuals linked to the April 21st attacks will be punished,” he pointed out.

Prasanna Ranatunga, the tourism minister, observed that multiple concerns stem from the report at first glance.

“The government has appointed a committee to study the contents of the report. A report will be published after studying the report thoroughly,” Ranatunga noted.
