Whilst rejecting the information revealed by the police on the recovering of a hand grenade at All Saints Church Borella on Tuesday January 11, 2022, Archbishop of Colombo His Eminence Cardinal Malclom Ranjith called for a transparent probe on the incident.

Cardinal Ranjith told a press conference that the police had not viewed the video clips of the incident. “Police only viewed the CCTV footage in the church for some reason. The Sanchristian (caretaker) of the church was arrested only by  viewing the video clips which were recorded after 3:00 pm on that day,” the Archbishop said.

"I requested the parish priest to view the video clips recorded the whole day. It is revealed by the CCTV footage that a suspicious man enters the church and keeps something on the ground.

Then he wears the traditional ‘sign of the cross’ which is a religious tradition practiced by the Catholics when entering the church and worshiping. However this person does it in the wrong way. It could be concluded that through this man's action, he was not a catholic,” Cardinal Ranjith said.

“Also this person came in limping and when going back from the church he was walking in a stable manner,” he added.

“In such circumstances, we appeal to the police to conduct a proper investigation.

One should not wear the uniforms if he cannot do his job in a proper manner,” he added.(Yohan Perera)

    Uncle, it is like asking feathers from a tortoise. You may ask for "Jungi" from the minister.

    No more evidence required. We have a super intelligence service, they will net the culprit if there is no political interference.

    A set-up just to deflect attention and put the Cardinal in a spot. To show Muslims are still active.

    Isn't politics Cardinal talking now? Critizing the whole SL Police is not keeping with a Head under any circumstances.
