Cardinal wants killing of journalists probed


By Ajith Alahakoon

Malcolm Cardinal Ranjith, over the weekend, called for an impartial investigation into the killing and disappearance of several journalists in the past.

Addressing a distinguished gathering at SIGNIS award ceremony, at the BMICH on Saturday (Sept. 1) Cardinal Ranjith said that those responsible for killings and disappearances should be investigated and brought to justice.

The Cardinal alleged that a section of the media was pursuing an agenda of its own for commercial gain. He strongly criticized those in the media for promoting their interests at the expense of social values. He emphasized that the media had no right to violate social values and always should strive to respect them.
