Zahran never met intelligence officials: Weerasekara!!

Zahran, who led the Easter Sunday attacks, had never met anyone from the intelligence units as per the available evidence, Minister of Public Security Sarath Weerasekera told Parliament today.

Making a special statement in the House, the Minister said Zahran’s wife was questioned both before and after the Easter Sunday attacks and she had never mentioned that her husband had met intelligence officers. “I have gone through the records of evidence and no such documents reveal anything about her husband had met intelligence officers. Zaharan had no connections with the intelligence units or with the security forces,” the Minister said while tabling documents pertaining to investigations on Easter Sunday attacks.

Also he said the lorries which were apprehended at Galanigama exit point on April 4, 2019 contained ornamental fish imported from China. “This consignment of ornamental fish was imported by a Rajagiriya-based company named 'Tropical Fish Ltd'. A senior police officer had ordered the lorries to be released as the drivers of the lorries claimed the fish could die in the event of a delay,” he said.

MPs Harin Fernando and Manusha Nanayyakra who made remarks on Easter Sunday attacks earlier this week had come up with blatant lies, It was their government which destroyed the intelligence units. The UNP led governments have always engaged in destroying intelligence units and they did it in 2003. The Millennium city incident led to the killing of intelligence officers. Easter Sunday attacks would have been prevented if these able intelligence officers were alive. It was the previous government which neglected the warnings given by former Minister Wijedasa Rajapaksa who said several Sri Lankan Muslims have undergone ISIS training in Syria and had returned to the island. The lies which MPs Fernando and Nanayakkara had left Catholic clergy in a mess" he said.(Yohan Perera and Ajith Siriwardana)   #Tamil   #News   #Tamil News   #Tamil Daily News   #Website   #Tamil News Paper  #Tamil Nadu Newspaper  #Online   #Breaking   News Headlines    #Latest Tamil News   #India News    #World News   #Tamil Film   #Jaffna   #Kilinochchi  #Mannar  #Mullathivu  #Batticola  #Kandy  #Srilanka #Colombo
