CID Director SSP Shani Abeysekara, CID Senior DIG Ravi Seneviratne, TID Director Warna Jayasundera and former TID Director DIG Nalaka de Silva have been summoned before the Parliament Select Committee probing the Easter Sunday terror attacks to testify today.

The Committee has postponed the summoning of former IGP Pujith Jayasundera and former Defence Secretary Hemasiri Fernando to a future date. The committee has decided to interrogate the senior officials of the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) and Terrorist Investigation Division (TID) prior to summoning the former IGP and the former Defence Secretary.

Parliament sources said live telecast of proceedings of the committee through Peo TV and the Parliament Official Website is most likely to be stopped today.

However, he said a final decision in that regard would have to be made by the committee.

Parliament Assistant Secretary General Tikiri Jayathilake said that routine Parliament sittings would be given priority today, and that Parliament currently lacks facilities to give simultaneous live telecast to Parliament sittings and Committee sittings.
