Mar 08, Colombo: The Archbishop of Colombo, Cardinal Malcolm Ranjith, has stated that he will continue to protest until justice is done to the victims of the Easter attack.

Participating in the ‘Black Sunday’ silent protest yesterday, Archbishop Cardinal Malcolm Ranjith said the protest is being held in the hope that justice will be done.

“We wanted the commission to find out who was behind this attack. We do not know to what extent it has been achieved. I'm reading that report these days. Many of the things recommended in this report can be implemented. It is especially important to enforce the law against those who have committed crimes,” he said to media.

The head of the Catholic Church in Sri Lanka said the government should be more committed to bring the perpetrators of the tragedy to justice.

“My feeling is that the government needs to be more committed to conducting an honest investigation. I wondered if it was necessary to appoint another committee of six members,” he questioned.

“What is needed here is for the President to directly direct himself to what he has to do on a practical level. It would be wrong to choose only a certain part of them and punish them only.”

“This protest movement will continue with the involvement of other religious organizations until we get a definite sign,” Cardinal Malcolm Ranjith said adding that this was an issue that affected the people of the whole country.
