Archbishop of Colombo Cardinal Malcolm Ranjith said today that those who provided funds and logistic support to bombers involved in the Easter Sunday attack should also be brought to book.

“We have seen that some have been arrested in connection with the attack. However we cannot comment on it as investigations are still continuing,” he said referring to the arrest of former Minister Rishad Bathiudeen’s brother.

Cardinal Ranjith came out with this remark at a press conference today where he said the first anniversary of the attack will be commemorated in a low key in the wake of COVID-19 crisis.

“We are happy that the present government is carrying out investigations on the Easter Sunday attack continuously. However, we urge the government to bring those who knew about the attack beforehand and failed to warn the people,” Cardinal Ranjith said.

He said those who neglected prior warnings and failed to prevent the Easter Sunday attack should be identified and brought to book. (Yohan Perera)
