All Victorians were shocked and deeply saddened to hear of the terrorist bombings that occurred in Sri Lanka on Easter Sunday.
These evil attacks on innocent civilians going about their lawful business, including those attending churches for Easter celebrations, are to be utterly condemned.
On behalf of the residents of the Forest Hill District, I wish to express my sincere sympathy following these dreadful events. This sympathy is extended to those directly affected, their families and loved ones, together with the citizens of Sri Lanka both in Victoria and elsewhere, and the broader Christian community.
What occurred were despicable acts that have resulted in tragic outcomes. Our thoughts and prayers are with the people of Sri Lanka at this terrible time.
