No consolation for those who have taken power over the blood of the innocent – Cardinal

His Eminence Cardinal Malcolm Ranjith emphasized that rulers who come to power on the blood of innocent victims of the Easter attack and do not do justice would not receive consolation.

He said this at a special service held today (21st). It has been more than 30 months since the brutal attack, but he strongly condemned the government’s sloppy policy of doing justice to the victims. It has been 23 months since the incumbent President came to power, declaring that justice will be done to the victims.

He expressed doubt that justice would be done for the victims of the 2019 Easter bombings under the present administration. He said, “When friends are accused, they are acquitted. Opponents are punished even where no wrong has been done. In this context, it is clear we will not be able to get the recommendations of the [presidential commission of inquiry on the attack] implemented in the present administrative structure.”
