    Media has to publish all the recovered illegal items with pictures. Just saying found his that wont help. Whats the meaning pf sports car? You have to publish the pictures as well for people to understand the severity of the corruption. Media went inside president palace, did they publisg phoos? Just claiming found pools etc etc just a eyewash and people wont be able to imagine how massive the corruption. Recently found container with sound equipments worh of crores. No photographs were released. If you can publish photos of items seized at customs, why can publish these items?

    It must be so that the ports authority worked on time.

    sanchay Sunday, 18 January 2015 04:46 PM

    anybody can import such things if he needs it. MR was probably trying to place his son after his tenure. But why is port authority involved in this? Was there any illegal deal? if yes the money should be claimed by the present authorities from MR and the gang. This family is full of corrupted scam.

    Public Money wasted here. Last campaign of MAHARAJA reminded us of US election campaign though SL people(low income) are so poor, even to have proper meals for kids.
