Kandy unrest: Almost 70 percent investigations completed

Almost 70 percent of the investigations into the clashes which occurred in Kandy have now been completed and the balance investigations will be completed soon, Security Chiefs informed Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe yesterday.

They also requested the Prime Minister to keep the Emergency regulations in force without revoking them until the investigations were fully completed.

The Security Chiefs made this request when the Security Council held its weekly meeting chaired by Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe yesterday.

The Security Chiefs insisted that since investigations had reached their final stages the Emergency regulations should be maintained until they were fully completed.

The request made by the Security Chiefs will be submitted to President Maithripala Sirisena when he returns to the country after his official visit to Japan tomorrow.
