Special Statement by Archbishop on State-Sponsored Repression (VIDEO)

The government’s conduct by which human rights are disregarded and repression is promoted can no longer be tolerated, said Rev. Fr. Dr. Cyril Gamini, delivering a special statement by the Archbishop of Colombo, His Eminence Malcolm Cardinal Ranjith, at a briefing called in today (08).

The Cardinal’s statement focused on the current economic crisis of the country and the state-sponsored repression unleashed which, according to him, have reached to a point of intolerance.

Condemning the arbitrary and unfair use of the controversial Prevention of Terrorism Act (PTA) to arrest peaceful protesters and social activists and leaders and the unamenable manner by which the country is governed, the Archbishop vehemently raises concerns on the arrest and detention of Wasantha Mudalige, the Convener of the Inter-University Students’ Federation (IUSF) and Ven. Galwewa Siridhamma Thero, the Convener of the Inter-University Bhikku Federation, Fr. Gamini noted.

Fr. Gamini further revealed that the Archbishop is urging the government to immediately publicise all volumes of the report issued by the Presidential Commission of Inquiry appointed to probe the Easter Sunday Carnage and implement its recommendations.
