Government should expedite finding political solution, Cardinal tells LLRC

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 03 November 2010, 18:42 GMT]
Sri Lanka's newly appointed Cardinal Most Rev. Dr. Malcolm Ranjit Wednesday appealed to the Government of Sri Lanka to speed up the process to find a political solution to the decades’ long ethnic conflict. The war is over but the fundamental issue that led to the armed struggle still exists and a sustainable political solution should be found as an only solution to the ethnic conflict, said Cardinal Dr.Malcom Ranjit testifying Wednesday before the Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation Commission (LLRC) appointed by the Government of Sri Lanka.

The eight-member (LLRC) Commission appointed in May 2010 has been recording evidence from the public to report on the lessons to be learnt from the events in the period from 21st February 2002 to 19th May 2009.

Cardinal Dr. Malcom Ranjit further said that the government should intensify its search for finding a lasting political solution to the ethnic conflict without further delay.

The Sinhala Only Act imposed in 1956 was the cause for the tension between the two communities that led to the war later.
