Can’t let unqualified people act on PCoI recommendations


20 February 2021 11:11 pm - 12     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


Those who don't have even basic education shouldn't be allowed to decide and act on the recommendations by the Presidential Commission of inquiries (PCoI) on Easter Sunday attacks, Archbishop of Colombo, His Eminence Cardinal Malcolm Ranjith said today.

Cardinal Ranjith who joined a protest staged by the Catholics of Katuwapitiya together with the clergy, said it is the Attorney General who should decide and act on the recommendations made by the Presidential commission.

"Those who have not got through the ordinary level exam cannot be allowed to make such decisions" the Cardinal said.

"The government should publish the PCoI report soon. We are suspicious as to why the government is reluctant to do so," he added.

Cardinal Ranjith reiterated that he would have to seek the assistance of international institutions, if action is not taken against those who are responsible for the attack. (Yohan Perera)

    Cardinal, you are showing so much fearlessness is because your masters are whites. The result of being colonised.

    Ain’t it ironic that a week after the Easter attacks Goltler announced his candidacy for president. That alone in my books is the biggest clue as to who was behind the attacks. Didn’t they announce that they will bring the perpetrators to justice. Why hide this? Well cardinal you danced with the devil and now pay the price of being used.

    Frankly I am asking you. Is former President Sirisena is responsible for Easter Attacks or not. On your reply PCol will give their report.

    Dr. Lal Mendis Sunday, 21 February 2021 01:34 PM

    Our President had appointed all the Professionals of corruption to study on the Easter Attack Report, why worry.
