Cardinal-Catholic MPs meeting postponed

Archbishop Malcolm Cardinal Ranjith said that he will not accept the committee appointed to study the report of the Presidential Commission on the Easter Attacks and that he is waiting for a copy of the report issued by the Presidential Commission of Inquiry.

The Cardinal has also refused to meet any Government or Opposition MP(s) until he receives a copy of the Presidential Commission report.

The Cardinal announced that he was not willing to meet any of the MPs after he was notified that Government and Opposition Catholic MPs were planning to meet Archbishop Malcolm Cardinal Ranjith on March 2.

Accordingly, the Archbishop’s Secretariat said the meeting between the Archbishop Malcolm Cardinal Ranjith and the Catholic Members of Parliament scheduled to be held on March 2 had to be postponed.

Fr. Jude Chrysantha Fernando, Archdiocesan Director for Social Communications confirmed that the Archbishop is yet to receive any official communication from the Government regarding the report, despite a written request to see it at the beginning of February.

 

However, he said that the Cardinal is still hopeful that the Government will not let them down and he would resort to seeking international intervention only as a last resort. He said that the Cardinal has no desire to let down the country or the Government and he is still hopeful that the Government will deliver on its promises.

Speaking to the Daily News Minister Nimal Lanza who was also planning on meeting the Cardinal along with other MPs said that he supports the Cardinal’s stand, adding that the people affected have waited long enough for justice to be served.

He also welcomed Minister Chamal Rajapaksa’s move to table the report in Parliament, adding that thereafter the report could be made public.
