Media Spokesperson of the Catholic Church Rev. Benedict Joseph has said that the statement made by Bishop of Mannar Rev.Rayappu Joseph regarding the requirement of an international investigation into alleged war crimes in Sri Lanka, is not the stance of the Catholic community.
Rev. Benedict Joseph spoke to our news team regarding the letter sent to the UN Human Rights Commission by a group of priests headed by Arch Bishop Rev.Rayappu Joseph.
Rev. Benedict Joseph stated that His Eminence Arch Bishop Malcolm Cardinal Ranjith had already established that the Catholic community believes that Sri Lanka should understand and implement the recommendations made by the LLRC report.
