    I do not tolerate this kind of behavior. But during maras administration new media was not allowed to disclose this kind of activities. I was not born yesterday , it seems you guys who make comments have forgotten the way Mara used police media the whole state institutions for their personal use. Be thankful you see transparency under this administration.
