The National Federation Party has conveyed heartfelt condolences to the affected families of the Sri Lankan terror attacks.
Leader, Professor Biman Prasad extended prayers of comfort and solace in their hour of grief to the families of the victims.
Prasad adds Fiji feels the pain and suffering of those who lost their loved ones or were injured in this barbaric act of terror as their loss is immeasurable and irreplaceable.
“Like the recent incident in Christchurch New Zealand, the worshippers were praying and marking the resurrection of Jesus Christ. To be so mercilessly killed by an act of terror on a day that that is synonymous with triumph of truth over violence and terror is incomprehensible.”
Prasad says this act has shattered the peace of Sri Lanka, which itself almost 10 years ago, came out of a war of many years that was laced with ethnic violence.
He notes Fiji has had close ties with Sri Lanka for many decades. Our judiciary and magistracy have many Sri Lankan nationals serving as judges and magistrates and they are also synonymous with the corporate and private sectors.
The NFP is deeply shocked and saddened by the deaths of Christian worshippers in Sri Lankan Churches and guests at 3 hotels in the massacre carried out on Easter Sunday.
