No confidence in Government or Attorney General’s Department: Cardinal

There is no confidence in the government or the Attorney General’s Department, said the Archbishop of Colombo His Eminence Malcolm Cardinal Ranjith, speaking to the launching of “Thitha,” a book complied by the National Catholic Mass Communication Commission after reviewing all commission reports related to the Easter Sunday Massacre, today (19).

“It can be clearly stated that not a single promise made by this government has been fulfilled. The State leaders and senior intelligence officials as well as senior police officers who were well aware of the issue and did nothing to prevent it have so far been protected. We have a feeling that one day we may have to wait for this justice to be served by a government that will come to power without our presence or the presence of the leaders of this government. It is now clear that we have no confidence in the current Government or the current Attorney General’s Department,” the Cardinal said.

He added: “This government and this Attorney General have hidden the evidence revealed by the Presidential Commission. There are letters asking for those volumes. We have told them to inform us about them. Requests have been made. However, without considering those requests, both the previous and the present government have taken measures to conceal evidence. What is happening now is that justice is not being served completely due to the misconduct of the Attorney General and the Attorney General’s Department. We are really sorry about that. The current regime has made the enforcement of law a complete joke. I blame them directly for that.”
