Easter Sunday Massacre: Supreme Court issues new order against Sirisena
Colombo (LNW): The Supreme Court of Sri Lanka has ordered former state officials, including ex-President Maithripala Sirisena, to disclose their assets and liabilities as they have failed to pay full compensation to the victims of the 2019 Easter Sunday attacks.
This order comes after the Supreme Court previously ruled that they must compensate the victims.
Former President Sirisena was ordered to pay Rs. 100 million, former Defence Secretary Hemasiri Fernando Rs. 50 million, former Head of the State Intelligence Service (SIS) Nilantha Jayawardena and former Inspector General of Police (IGP) Pujith Jayasundara Rs. 75 million each, and National Intelligence Chief Sisira Mendis Rs. 10 million in compensation.
The former officials must submit their asset and liability affidavits by December 30, 2023.
