An outspoken Sri Lankan cardinal has criticized the prime minister and foreign affairs minister for their visit to the Vatican and their attempt to meet with Pope Francis and brief him on the progress of investigations into the 2019 Easter Sunday attacks. Cardinal Malcolm Ranjith alleged that Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa and Foreign Affairs Minister G.L. Peiris will try to mislead the pope and the international community over the investigations during their trip to Italy, which began on Sept. 9. “It is another government campaign to cover up the truth over the Easter Sunday investigations,” the cardinal said on Sept. 8.
