    Hats off to the GOSL who does not have the guts to prosecute Indian Fishermen knowing the repercussions of the indian government would be swift, powerful and destabilizing to MR.

    MR will always wag his tail to India and China because his future depends on good relationship with them with his future on war crimes.
