While stating that some politicians may be involved in the Easter Sunday attacks, Archbishop of Colombo Cardinal Malcolm Ranjith yesterday urged the government to carry out a proper investigation to determine as to who was behind the conspiracy which the former attorney general had referred to.
Cardinal Ranjith told a press conference that investigations should be carried out to determine who is behind the conspiracy.
“The investigations do not seem to be moving in this direction and we are not satisfied with it," he said.
"An investigation should be carried out on the incident of the bomber who blew himself up in Dehiwala while action should be taken to determine the whereabouts of Sarah who happened to be the wife of another bomber and happens to have vital information on the mayhem," he added.
"Action has not been taken against those who have been held responsible for the attack by the Presidential commission including some police officers. We are compelled to seek assistance from the UN and others in the Catholic Church on the international level," he also said.
Also the Cardinal said action should be taken to take the ship X Press Pearl before it sinks within Sri Lankan waters. “The ship had already caused the fishermen to lose their livelihood and seas off Sri Lanka would be further polluted if oil and other chemicals flowed into the sea if the ship sank," he said.
"I also call all religious leaders to work towards preventing selling of Sri Lanka's resources to foreign investors," he said, referring to the alleged move by the government to sell off certain buildings in Colombo City. Sri Lankan economy should be planned according to Sri Lanka's desires and not according to the preferences of foreign countries. We did not elect UDA but a government that pledged to safeguard our natural resources. Sometimes we wonder whether we want a universal franchise when considering the performance of 225 MPs in Parliament. Successive governments which came to power with the themes such as Yahapalana and Saubagye Dekma have failed," he said in this regard.
Fr. Cyril Gamini Fernando who also participated in the press conference said there is a move to sell off the entire Sri Lankan coastal areas to foreign investors. (Yohan Perera)
How many times have you made this request. Do you find anything constructive. It seems that we are being fooled by everyone.

Yes correct. Sirisena, Badurdeen
Truth (Atha) Thursday, 03 June 2021 03:42 PM
True globally it is revealed Sirisena (former President) was behind this attack as he was bribed by the terrorist more than 3.8 billion. He went to Singapore not for medical treatment but to finalize the deal.
