In this zoom meeting, Cardinal Malcom Ranjith further explained what contained in the letter sent by His Holiness Pope Francis in Italian language “I am really sad about the Easter Sunday attack.  Decide to do the best. Also let me know the steps I can take from here. I will discuss this case with the Cardinal, Secretary of State here.

I appreciate your efforts to prevent a conflict among the Catholic people in the country over this attack. Cardinal Malcom Ranjith described the Presidential Commission investigated in to the Easter Sunday attack as a serious one.

“The Commission report had cited former President Maithreepala Sirsena as a responsible person for the attack. Not taking legal action against him yet is very frustrating” Cardinal Malcom Ranjith alleged.
