Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe alleges that some are trying to reject certain content in the intelligence report into the Easter Sunday attacks. He says their rejection will only lend support to Islamic State terrorism. Addressing a function at Kinniya Central College Yesterday, the premier noted that no report could be accepted in parts. He warned that doing so would only weaken the evidence. He added the report has not established any of the allegations against Parliamentarian Rishad Bathiudeen.
