Not only Gota, Basil, Wimal, Mahindananda, P.B., Cabraal, Senarath, but even present minister Anura Yapa in “rogues’ gallery” files

Details of the 22 investigations into the regime’s crimes concluded by the FCID

(Lanka-e-News- 11.March.2016, 10.25PM) It is a well and widely known fact  that serious  charges were mounted by the public against the ex Attorney General (AG) Yuvanjan and his assistant Suhada Gamlath  for not filing cases with regard to   the notorious rogues associated with the Medamulana Rajapakse regime , and for resorting to dilly dallying tactics. There were also accusations leveled against Wijedasa Rajapakse that he too was contributory towards that.  Even at that time , the FCID had concluded its investigations pertaining to 22 cases and the files had been forwarded to the AG’s department , it was reported. It is in the midst of this situation , Jayantha Jayasuriya took oaths as  the new AG on 11 th February with the blessings of all. 

On 11 th of this month , that is today , he completes one month since taking oaths as AG. Apparently , the AG has still not touched those 22 files hereinbefore mentioned. It is therefore a crucial question ,who is  protecting the rogues? This is a most perilous state of affairs portending grave danger to the country.
