Too serious a crime to allow him on bail with 10,000

When was that? Could you be more specific other than when Rajitha stated that KP has left the country. Yes Rajitha should have been interrogated by the police for that false information, but then Sinhalese cannot sleep without bashing the Tamils once in a while, so it was ignored.

Wimal Weerawansa also needs to investigated for the press conference he gave with Muzamil on TV, where he showed a bag containing some millions of rupees that he accused was bribe money from the UNP. What happened to this money and did he make an official complaints to Police and was the money handed over to authorities are things that need to be investigated.
