Refuting media reports that the Cardinal had expressed his dissatisfaction with the Presidential Commission probing the Easter Sunday attacks, Archbishop of Colombo Cardinal Malcolm Ranjith yesterday said he was very satisfied with the Presidential Commission.

The Archbishop expressed this view at a press release yesterday. Following is the press conference issued by the Archbishop.

The media release said:

Consequent to Malcolm Cardinal Ranjith’s press conference held on the February 18, 2020, at the Archbishop’s House, Borella, certain print and electronic media institutions, while telecasting the said news item on February 18, 2020, had erroneously highlighted the fact that Malcolm Cardinal Ranjith was not satisfied with the Presidential Commission of Inquiry appointed to investigate the Easter Sunday bomb blast.

Under such circumstances, we wish to clarify on behalf of His Eminence Malcolm Cardinal Ranjith, that His Eminence has reiterated on several occasions that he was very satisfied with the workings of the present Presidential Commission of Inquiry investigating the Easter Sunday bomb blast. This was reiterated at the press conference on 18th February 2020 and previous press conferences as well. His Eminence stated that he was not satisfied with the Parliamentary Select Committee proceedings and the report issued therein.”

    What has happened is a genocide. Instead of saying that I am satisfied, his eminence Cardinal Ranjit should demand the GOSL to finish the Presidential Inquiry going on and frame charges against those responsible in our courts before going for elections. If not there is very good chance that this report too will be swept under the carpet or will not be allowed to see the light of the day for 30 years like that of bond scam.

    Perhaps an appeal for an injunction refraining the dissolution of parliament by Prez should be taken up with SC as the last resort, just like the ‘anticipatory’ thing.
