Action should be taken against former President Maithirpala Sirisena without delay as he has been held responsible for the Easter Sunday attacks, Archbishop of Colombo Cardinal Malcolm Ranjith said today.

Cardinal Ranjith who was speaking to the media after Easter Sunday services said a question arises whether some politicians who are held responsible are shameless to go before the people once again.

Archbishop Malcolm Cardinal Ranjith questioned whether the former President is leading a party and is seeking re-election wearing clothes.

“Why wait for months to take action against the former President as he has been clearly held responsible for negligence when it comes to preventing the Easter Sunday attacks despite receiving prior warning,” he questioned.

“Some who associated with Zaharan Hashim are still in Parliament,” he also said.(Yohan Perera)

    Enough of your mourning. Go to the International community and ask for an independent investigation.

    Hope you will not seek UN support to punish those involved in this crime.

    I think the 'yahapalana' was a better alternative to the current state of affairs. Even the cardinal is hesitant to criticise this government.

    From the very beginning some got this as a joke,that's why one minister teased those swords to cut grass
