* Sri Lankan cardinal waits for a future government to bring justice for church bombings
Sat, Feb 19, 2022, 11:45 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Feb 19, Colombo: The Archbishop of Colombo, Cardinal Malcolm Ranjith, has said that the current government and the Attorney General’s Department cannot be expected to bring justice to the Easter Sunday attack and hopes that justice will be served by a future government.

The Archbishop of Colombo says that justice for the Easter attack has not been done due to the misconduct of the Attorney General and the Attorney General’s Department.

He said the current government had made a mockery of the attack protecting and promoting heads of state and officials who had not acted to prevent the Easter Sunday carnage.

The Archbishop was speaking through video at the launch of a book titled ‘Thitha’ compiled by the National Catholic Mass Communication Commission based on all the commission reports related to the Easter attack.

The ceremony was presided over by Archbishop Winston Fernando, Chairman of the Bishops’ Conference of Sri Lanka.

The cardinal also said that the current government had not fulfilled any of the promises made to him regarding the incident.

It has been almost three years since the attack on Easter Sunday, but justice has not been done for it, the Archbishop of Colombo said alleging that the government and the attorney general have hidden the evidence in the report of the Presidential Commission of Inquiry that probed the attack.
