Attorney General Dappula Livera has instructed to prosecute Inspector General of Police (IGP) Pujith Jayasundara and former Defence Secretary Hemasiri Fernando over murder charges, reports say.  

Following failure to prevent the tragic events happened in Easter Sunday (April 21) ended in death toll over 250, the two would be prosecuted for murder under sector 296 of the Penal Code, per AG's instructions.

However, as the theory "Nothing wrong with a false mind is a crime" goes in law, the AG shall be standing before the quest to prove that the former Defence Secretary and the IGP were false minded accounting to the death toll beyond reasonable doubt.
