Politics may threaten probe into Easter Attacks – Archbishop
Archbishop of Colombo Cardinal Malcolm Ranjith says that politics may jeopardize investigations into the Easter Sunday attacks.
Speaking in Akmeemana on Saturday he said that “We see difference of opinion with regard to investigations into the Easter Sunday attacks. Politicians sabotaging important investigations seems to be part of the Sri Lankan culture. Therefore, one cannot be satisfied with the investigations”.
Cardinal Ranjith said violence had made Sri Lanka a pool of blood since independence and that such an unfortunate situation was created by politicians.
“The Easter Sunday bombings do not seem to have been planned hastily. It looks like the attackers have been planning the carnage for several years. Therefore, it is vital to conduct thorough investigations to uncover the truth,” he said.
