    Is that including INT man? (Oh sorry, I said, only if there is a warrant against him)

    Minister Wednesday, 01 August 2012 09:36 AM

    Wow!!! So where's our "dharma deepaya"?

    By the way, why wasn't these 28,000 arrested before?

    28,000 arrested but no one had the balls to arrest Duminda Silva before he escape. All the stories about fatal injuries was a lie to smuggle him out of the country cos no one would call for his arrest if it was said that he is dying in the hospital.

    28000 divided in to 30 days of the month = 900 arrests per day! Good lord! Does police have enough cells to detain them?
