Colombo (LNW): Endorsing the recent ‘Channel 4’ disclosure on the 2019 Easter Sunday Massacre, Archbishop of Colombo, His Eminence Malcolm Cardinal Ranjith making an exclusive statement with the media this (06) evening urged Sri Lankan President Ranil Wickremesinghe and the government of Sri Lanka to immediately commence a thorough international probe regarding the speculated conspiracy behind the attacks.
Elaborating further the Cardinal underscored the importance of an inquiry that is ‘unbiased, transparent, comprehensive and fair,’ spearheaded by an independent international group, with the backing of all the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) officials who had previously been thrown out of the picture due to political interference.
The Cardinal made this appeal in response to a recent controversial documentary aired on Britain’s Channel 4 supposedly revealing the master plan behind the terrorist attack that took away more than 250 lives in April, 2019, which stirred controversy.
The documentary quoting statements from witnesses and high-ranking whistleblowers of the Sri Lankan government proposes that the 2019 Easter Sunday Massacre was carried out as part of a political conspiracy, paving the way for a certain candidate to win the subsequent Presidential Election.
