Cardinal Malcolm Ranjith Cardinal, Archbishop of Colombo, has stated that the government and the police will not be allowed to slip away in the incident where a hand grenade was found inside the All Saints Church in Borella.
“We will fight against this government until the truth of this incident is fully revealed. Because we can clearly see the drama being played by this government and the police. That’s why I told our fathers to watch CCTV footage that morning. Because then we can find out if anyone else brought this bomb. So we were able to find that. The police tried to get away with it putting the responsibility on the person named ‘Muni’. That is what the Minister of Police said in the statement. We cannot allow such a thing to happen.
Therefore, we will not allow the government or the police to slip away in this matter. We have the court, we are confident about the court. Therefore, we will take action in court to rectify the mistake made and the mistake made by that man.”
The cardinal was commenting on a zoom discussion on the Easter attack and the hand grenade incident on the Borella church.
