The Catholic Church is losing its trust in the incumbent government is not a good sign as far as the country is concerned, Leader of the Opposition Sajith Premadasa said.

Speaking during a public gathering in Hatton he said the recent remarks which Archbishop of Colombo His Eminence Cardinal Malcolm Ranjith came out with, clearly states that the catholic church in Sri Lanka has lost its faith in the government. 

“It is clear that the Catholic Church in Sri Lanka has lost its faith in the government when considering the questions raised by Cardinal Ranjith on the investigations carried out by the police on the Borella Church hand grenade incident. This is not a healthy situation as far as the nation is concerned,” Mr. Premadasa said.

“Therefore it is essential to carry out proper investigations on the incident,” he added.

“Also the Cardinal and the Sri Lanka Catholic church do not seem to be satisfied with the probe that is being conducted on the Easter Sunday attacks. The Cardinal said the Easter Sunday attacks were aimed at gaining political mileage. Therefore, a future SJB government will conduct a proper investigation and will punish everyone who was responsible for the attack. I can certainly give a guarantee on it as I am also a victim of terrorism as I lost my father as a result of a terror attack,” he added.

Taking a swipe at the economic crisis, Mr. Premadasa said the government has awakened from a deep slumber and is going around the globe begging for dollars. (Yohan Perera)

    The cardinal forgave the easter day attackers but the cardinal is angry with a new government not the old one , barking at the wrong tree.

    You are in the pockets of Rajapakshas. We all know that you are acting the role given by the ruling party.
