8 June 2019 03:48 am

Finance Minister Mangala Samaraweera has cleared his views on propaganda that the letter dated 03, June, 2019 on a Parliament Letterhead addressed to His Holiness Pope Francis attributed to his name criticizing the Archbishop of Colombo His Eminence Cardinal Malcolm Ranjith is in fact fake.

The Minister has complained to the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) asking to investigate the fabrication of a Parliament letterhead on which his signature had also been forged. 

Minister Samaraweera has pointed out the fabrication of a Parliament Letterhead forged with a minister's signature is a serious crime as is the fabricated content of the letter, and urged to take immediate actions on this matter, by lodging a complaint to the CID.

Over yesterday (07), on several media, a letter surfaced attributed to the Finance Minister in which the content criticizing the Cardinal claimed to have disrupted communal harmony by promoting hatred.
