Politics may jeopardise investigations into the Easter Sunday attacks, Archbishop of Colombo Cardinal Malcolm Ranjith said last Saturday at a function held in Akmeemana.

“We see difference of opinion with regard to investigations into the Easter Sunday attacks. Politicians sabotaging important investigations seems to be part of the Sri Lankan culture. Therefore, one cannot be satisfied with the investigations,” he said.

Cardinal Ranjith said violence had made Sri Lanka a pool of blood since independence and that such an unfortunate situation was created by politicians.

“The Easter Sunday bombings do not seem to have been planned hastily. It looks like the attackers have been planning the carnage for several years. Therefore, it is vital to conduct thorough investigations to uncover the truth,” he said. (Yohan Perera)

    Very surprising question. Every body, even a yesterday born infant too knows his political affiliations.

    So, you wish to handle the probe?

    Valid points made by the Cardinal. Too much political interference throughout proceedings, which may cloud outcome. Sadly, We may NEVER KNOW the COMPLETE TRUTH!
