In the wake of the video released by Channel 4 on the revelations about the Easter Sunday attacks where it speaks about the involvement of the Rajapaksas, former Minister Mervyn Silva said he was the first to reveal this fact.

“The Rajapaksas, Maithripala Sirisena and several politicians of that time should be taken as the first accused for the Easter Sunday attacks,” he said.

“While not having a strong backbone, Maithripala Sirisena went to Singapore. He knew about the attack after one and a half days. The Easter Sunday attacks were launched because the Rajapaksas wanted to capture power again. The statement made by Archbishop of Colombo Cardinal Malcolm Ranjith is correct, and I respect him. This Easter attack has strong connections with high-profile politicians, and they let that disaster happen to give political power to Rajapaksas,” he said.

“I totally accept what Channal 4 says. However, the Rajapaksas should be responsible for the Easter attacks,” he added. (Chaturanga Pradeep Samarawickrama)
