    Agree with Mr. Roger kumar. And what about the local drug smugglers??? Death sentence is too much!

    As Sri Lanka is a Buddhist nation, its judiciary must follow the principles of Buddhism and show mercy on wrong-doers who commit an economic crime..SL must give up penalizing people with harsh punishment like death sentence.. No country in Europe hangs people even if the guilty murdered 200 people.. SL must follow the example of the Philippines in Asia and stay away following the authoritarian regimes like Singapore

    What about former PM and son who brought a heroin container? for that much they should be stoned to death

    What kind of judge are you? you should know that justice should be tempered with mercy . The sensible punishment you should have given him is a deportation order to depormt the accused to NEPAL.RECENTLY DIDNT THE GOVT OF SL RELEASE AND DEPORT TO INDIA FIVE INDIAN CITIZENS SENTENCED TO DEATH . You are a baboon of a judge and when you are on your death bed you will agonize and feel the throttle .

    It is a crime and the penalty is written in big bold letters when u arrive to the island... Even though death penalty is not implemented in SL its rather life imprisonment I feel the punishment is fit. Even though I like partying alchahol and weed occasionally drugs is a BIG no from me it does not steal a moment in your life it steals your whole future ... Hence death or life imprisonment fits the crime committed- I do hope trials would soon imprison many of our king pin dealers

    Extremely harsh penalty. Did his nationality play a part for the penalty. ?. If he was a westerner it would have been different.
