The tranquil of Easter Sunday was disorganized by horrible bombings that left at least 290 people dead in Sri Lankan Hotels and Churches.
Although it’s not yet known who exactly is behind the 8 explosions that forced this island country in South Asia to go in the state of restricted access. The High commissioner of Sri Lanka to United Kingdom, Hon Gunasekera Manisha said these are acts of terror.
A memo warning of possible attack had gone viral ten days earlier, which raised several questions about whether preventive measures were implemented.
Something must be done to find out why this dangerous warning was ignored in the first place, Sri Lanka’s Telecommunications minister, Fernando Harin tweeted together the picture of the memo, dated 11th April, with the subject matter ‘’ Information of an alleged plan attack’’ and signed by Deputy IGP, Mr Dissanayake Priyalal.
Some intelligence officers were aware of this incidence. Therefore there was a delay in action. What my father heard was also from an intelligence officer. Serious action need to be taken as to why this warning was ignored. I was in Badulla last night pic.twitter.com/ssJyItJF1x
