Cardinal appears before Commission probing Easter attacks

Archbishop of Colombo, Cardinal Malcom Ranjith today appeared before the Presidential Commission of Inquiry(PCoI) probing the Easter attacks.

The recording of evidence took place at the Commission’s office located at BMICH.

Former President Maithripala Sirisena appointed a five-member Commission in September this year to inquire into the Easter Sunday Bombings.

Last month, President Gotabaya Rajapaksa upon a request made by Cardinal Malcom Ranjith assured that justice will be served and that a new independed commission will be appointed to investigate into the incident.
