    There is a man who can not account for Rs. 165 million. The officers of the BC salutes him and he goes dancing at the week end. Will any law enforcement institutions or the IRD chief take the hint?

    Guys who robbed billions of bond money are set free, but this poor guy tried to take just Rs. 20,000/- arrested. Well, JUSTICE prevails in Sri Lanka.
