    Issue a public notice requesting all concern to inform nearest police station or to a dedicated telephone line in case of finding such suspected government vehicles.

    Just imagine what would have happened if that regime continued to be in power. Early election was a blessing to our country so that we could defeat the corrupted regime. National media also hide these corruptted people and showed us a total fault picture. when I feel we were cheated by that government I need them to have a humiliating defeat in the coming general election cos thats only way public can punish them.

    This type of articles should be published in Sinhalese News Papers as well, for the general public to know. Who could be held responsible for this?

    What a waste !!!! It seems that Mahinda enjoyed public money more than President Obama.

    Vijith Pieterz Saturday, 24 January 2015 09:21 AM

    Good idea, may be some more Govt. assets would have dumped all over the country. IGP please implement a system to trace all the other vehicles too.

    J Palitha Saturday, 24 January 2015 09:23 AM

    Ex-President had mis-used public hard earned money and enjoyed a luxury life cheating the masses.

    Fassey Saturday, 24 January 2015 09:29 AM

    If purchased with own money even a push bicycle would have been valuable. Never in. the history of Sri Lanka leaders have wasted so much. God saved the country.

    The time is ripe for another "grand prix" in Galle face, with pakse family tied to the back of the lead vehicle!!!

    Chaminda Friday, 23 January 2015 01:17 PM

    Sell these vehicles if not required and raise funds.

    Philip Friday, 23 January 2015 11:21 PM
