Good. Time to take the responsibility.
Let’s see what he has to say.
Shopping in Singapore for silk underwear, that will not help !!!
MS showed utter callous irresponsibility as the then president of Sri Lanka when he abandoned the Country just before the Easter Sunday bombings. He is surely unfit to be in Parliament ! Also, what about the then PM, RW who is equally irresponsible for ignoring the intelligence services. He said he will resign with GR, but cunningly remained to become PM and then the president – a failed and UNELECTED president. What a political mess in Sri Lanka. An imposter as the president appointed with the connivance of the failed SLPP. It also appears that Cardinal Ranjit has to answer why he did not conduct the usual practice of service on that fateful Easter Sunday ??
Yes, Dr. Fernando MY3 should be held accountable. He is a slippery eel and transferred the blame to GR. Just like GR, he is not fit to be the executive president of SL. Well, you made a valuable point Doc. Why Cardinal Ranjit Malcolm did not conduct the usual service on that fateful Easter Sunday? May be having a zoom meeting with the honourable Pope!
Pallewatte Gamaralage Maithripala Yapa Sirisena was the worst power crazy person to be SL Exec P.
As Defense Minister, he pissed off all to be sole Defense person in Govt. He failed.
He also failed to understand the Constitution and was given a stinging slap on his cheek by the Supreme Court over the sacking of his Govt.
Towards the end of his term, he went begging for nomination from the Party which he had cut throated in 2015.
He and the Cardinal and the catholic fraternity had advance knowledge of the Easter Sunday event; a Catholic Minister in Govt was advised by his father, who was in hospital, not to attend Easter Sunday services.
The Cardinal should explain why he did not conduct the traditional Easter Sunday service.
Pallewatte Gamaralage should explain why he his in Singapore.
That will solve the ‘mystery’.
