President's Counsel Shamil Perera, appearing on behalf of His Eminence Malcolm Cardinal Ranjith, told the Supreme Court today that if the intelligence information had been provided before the terrorist attack on Easter Sunday, it would have been possible to cancel the services.

This was when the petition filed against former Defense Secretary Hemasiri Fernando and IGP Pujith Jayasundera who was sent on compulsory leave, stating that the fundamental freedoms have been violated by not avoiding the Easter Sunday attacks was taken up for hearing at the Supreme Courts today. 

President's Counsel stated in court that if a warning was given this major tragedy could have been averted, and that the Archbishop is making these representations seeking justice for the dead and the wounded in the Easter Sunday attacks, the second most important day for Christians after Christmas
