MPs have asked president Ranil Wickremesinghe to submit to the House the report by a presidential commission of inquiry into the countrywide violence that began on March 31.
SLPP MP Madura Withanage on December 21 handed him a letter containing that request endorsed by 115 MPs.
Notable signatories include Anura Priyadarshana Yapa, Udaya Gammanpila, Jayaratne Herath and Wasantha Yapabandara who presently function as independents.
The president is in receipt of the report by the three-member committee appointed by his predecessor Gotabaya Rajapaksa and headed by Admiral-of-the-Fleet Wasantha Karannagoda.
The MPs’ letter calls for punishment to all perpetrators of the violence as per the country’s laws.
