 He said they would appear before the PSC on July 24. They had originally been informed to appear before the PSC On July 12 but the session had been postponed as some officials were abroad and had prior engagements with National Police Commission.

 Senior DIG of the State Intelligence Service Nilantha Jayawardena, Senior DIG of the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) Ravi Seneviratne, and CID Director Shani Abeysekera were among those officials, Chairman Kumarasiri said.

He said that Director General of the Terrorist Investigation Division (TID) Waruna Jayasundara, and TID Inspector Tharanga Pathirana had also been asked to appear before the PSC.

The particular Committee sittings are expected to begin at 9:30 am, but are unlikely to be open to the media.
