Cardinal Ranjith alleges ‘deal’ within govt to protect those named in Easter attacks probe report

Archbishop of Colombo, Malcolm Cardinal Ranjith has voiced concern over the delay in bringing to justice the individuals named in the report of the Presidential Commission of Inquiry on the Easter Sunday attacks, who are accused of criminal negligence.

“We have been waiting patiently with this government which had promised us that they will do justice to us. But they have not done it,” he said, speaking during a virtual discussion on Sunday (23). 

He said the report of the Easter Presidential Commission of Inquiry very clearly has named a series of people as being responsible for inaction and, “allowing this group of gangsters to go ahead with the attack for their own purposes. And these people have not been brought to justice so far.” 

“Including the former President who now brags about himself and he says that he will not be brought to justice and all that.”
