Ambassador Ravinatha Aryasinha had a virtual discussion with Dan Stigall, Deputy Chief of Staff & Counselor for International Affairs, Department of Justice (DoJ) recently to follow-up on the charges filed last month by the US District Court in Los Angeles against 3 Sri Lankans for “Conspiring to Provide Material Support to ISIS” in the Easter Sunday bombings in Sri Lanka in April 2019, Sri Lankan Embassy in Washington D.C. said.

All 3 Sri Lankans are currently in Sri Lanka’s custody. The Ambassador has also called for closer monitoring of the pro-LTTE organizations operating in the US, who contrary to US laws, were glorifying terrorism and martyrdom, while propagating hate speech and disinformation.
