Refuting media reports that the Cardinal had expressed his dissatisfaction on 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.”

    Cardinal is a liar! We saw the video and he was clear he said he is not happy about the present Govt investigations. Cardinal is doing dirty politics for the benefit of Rajapakse from whom he has got bribe and santhosams.
