Cardinal accuses Govt. of trying to deceive Pope

Archbishop Malcolm Cardinal Ranjith has accused the Prime Minister and the Government of trying to deceive the Pope by taking the investigation into the Easter Attacks to the Vatican.

In a press conference held today, the Cardinal expressed his disappointment regarding the reported decision made by the Prime Minister and the Foreign Minister to approach the Vatican and explain the progress of the Easter Attacks investigations.

Cardinal Ranjith condemned this move and said it was only another gimmick to further delay the investigations and ‘safe guard’ the perpetrators, instead of bringing them to justice.

“If this is what the Government choses to do, we can approach the Geneva Human Rights Council and voice our concerns too, “ concluded the Cardinal.
