Action should be taken against former President Maithirpala Sirisena without delay as he has been held responsible for the Easter Sunday attacks, Archbishop of Colombo Cardinal Malcolm Ranjith said today.
Cardinal Ranjith who was speaking to the media after Easter Sunday services said a question arises whether some politicians who are held responsible are shameless to go before the people once again.
Archbishop Malcolm Cardinal Ranjith questioned whether the former President is leading a party and is seeking re-election wearing clothes.
“Why wait for months to take action against the former President as he has been clearly held responsible for negligence when it comes to preventing the Easter Sunday attacks despite receiving prior warning,” he questioned.
“Some who associated with Zaharan Hashim are still in Parliament,” he also said.
