10 Dec 2021

Rev. Fr. Jude Krishantha, the Media Director of the Archdiocese of Colombo has lodged an entry with the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) to inquire into a statement which was made by Minister of Tourism Prasanna Ranatunga who claimed that former President Maithripala Sirisena is responsible for the Easter attacks that took place in 2019. The entry was lodged by Fr Jude Krishantha along with other Catholic Priests this morning (10). "On the 26th of November, Minister of Tourism Prasanna Ranatunga stated that former President Maithripala Sirisena should be held responsible for the Easter Attacks. An inquiry must be done into this statement as to why Ranatunga would make such a remark in public," mentioned Fr Jude in his statement. The Priest further mentions that such a statement would not be publicly made unless there was backing proof and this needs to be investigated immediately. "We request that a detailed investigation be done and if in case Sirisena is convicted or has involvement, we want justice to be served impartially," said Fr Jude.
