    Sri Lanka was only a few days short of celebrating a decade of peace since the end of the 30-year separatist conflict when a series of horrific attacks shocked the nation. The Easter Sunday attacks on churches and tourist hotels claimed more than 250 lives and injured another 500 or more innocent people.The terrorists struck at a time when the country was too complacent with regard to national security, and border control measures were lax. Indeed, a new on-arrival visa scheme was scheduled to be implemented from 1 May 2019, with the hope of boosting the tourism industry and allowing it to capitalise on Lonely Planet identifying Sri Lanka as the top country to visit in 2019.

    Health Minister Dr Rajitha Senaratne has been appointed as a member of the Special Parliamentary Select Committee looking into the Easter Sunday terror attacks following UNP MP Kavinda Jayawardena’s decision to step down from the committee.Speaker Karu Jayasuriya announced in Parliament that JVP Parliamentarian Nalinda Jayatissa has also been included as a member of the special select committee.
