Statement made by Hon. Mangala Samaraweera, on 24th June 2015 in Response to Nimal Siripala De Silva

Response to Nimal Siripala De Silva

WEDNESDAY 24TH JUNE 2015

Honorable Speaker,

I wish to answer the questions posed by the Hon. Leader of Opposition, relating to the US State Department Report titled ‘Country Reports on Terrorism and Patterns of Global Terrorism.’

The US State Department released their Counterterrorism Report this June 2015. The report covered the calendar year 2014, during which Hon. Nimal Siripala De Silva himself was a cabinet minister in the Rajapaksa administration. It noted that a total of 13 LTTE supporters were arrested in Malaysia in 2014. Like the report that preceded it, covering the calendar year 2013, it mentioned that the LTTE’s network of support continued to operate - shockingly, under the very regime that claimed to have eradicated this threat once and for all.
