    The Presidential Commission, Bribery Commission and FCID are only for JO activists? Getting fed up of stick and carrot this only what yahapalana plans inside the US embassy?

    All complaints that are being received should be investigated.However no one can stop investigation of the past misdeeds of anyone irrespective of the personalities.So let us wait and see the progress.

    Hello - Please read the Yahapalana Government Election Manifesto first. They said if they come to power they will inquire into all corruptions fraud and misuse of government and police powers of the M Chintana. Now they have started from the top, why crying if you are innocent why worry? After completing yesterday's work they will start inquire into Yahapalana government. Wait ad see bye- Nihal Gunatilakei

    Are you trying to justify all the murders, disappearances, assaults, siphoning of state funds, blatant misuse of power, your beloved JO activists did during last regime? Shame on you.

    Another example from past regime on how people get corrupted absolutely in their never ending pursuit for more money, power, and positions.
