Truth of Easter Sunday attacks will surface only after a political system change



Father Cyril Gamini

Uncovering the truth behind the Easter Sunday attacks hinged on a change in the political system, Fr. Cyril Gamini Fernando, the spokesperson of the Archdiocese of Colombo, said following his visit to the CID on Friday (19) morning.

Fr. Fernando was summoned to the CID to provide his account regarding the Easter Sunday attacks. He stated, “I received a letter from the CID requesting my presence at 10 am. They mentioned they wish to record my statement regarding my knowledge of the attacks.”

Fr. Fernando said he had been to the CID on several occasions and had made detailed statements. But there had been no investigation based on the information he has shared, he said.

“I doubt that the statement I provided today will have any significant impact. Five years had elapsed since the attacks.
