It is reported that Attorney General Dappula Livera is to be summoned to appear before the Parliament Select Committee appointed to investigate the Easter Sunday attacks.

President Maithripala Sirisena recently stated that he will not allow any official serving in defense forces to appear before the Parliament Select Committee.

Later, Attorney General Dappula Livera had instructed officers of the State Intelligence Unit not to appear before the Parliament Select Committee.

Normally, a Parliament Select Committee has the power to summon any state official. It is reported that the Parliament Select Committee is scheduled to question the Attorney General with regard to instructing state officials to refrain from appearing before the committee.
