The Attorney General’s advice is being sought to charge sheet another group of hardcore terrorist suspects.
The Criminal Investigations Department had made submissions to the Colombo Magistrate’s Court in this respect. The suspects were apprehended for conspiring to assassinate VIP’s including the President and his family members. Among the suspects are 17 who were rounded up in the year 2007 while they in hiding in Colombo and the suburbs. The CID intimated to Courts that they would be indicted in the High Court once they received advice from the Attorney General with regard to the investigations conducted.
