ASIA/INDIA-Fishermen killed in Kerala: Cardinal Alencherry defends "truth and justice"
Rome (Agenzia Fides) - "Truth and Justice" on the case of the fishermen killed in Kerala on February 15: this is what Cardinal George Alencherry, Major Archbishop of the Syro-malabrese Church, based in Kerala asks for in an interview with Fides.
The Cardinal today released the following statement to Fides: “I would like to precise my views reported by the news agency “Fides” regarding the incident in which two fishermen were killed in the sea. This event has to be investigated and if there is a culpable action it has to be dealt with legally and the culprits have to be punished. Truth and justice have to be established. What I said the other day parenthetically was that this event shall not become a cause for conflicts and enemity in the communities and between nations. I have no intention to take a mediatory role in the setting of this matter”. (PA) (Agenzia Fides 22/2/2012)
