    Any one can say this but I doubt them touching MR as some people like you think he is a war hero!

    KondeThe ministers must not say anything about who should be arrested. The should keep their mouths shut. It's up to the police and judiciary to decide who should be arrested and tried.

    Rasheed Friday, 15 July 2016 03:18 PM

    Yes, even SF is War Hero.

    Then why did he come back. He went for treatment didn't he? If he was guilty fine, What about the crooks in parliament now holding minister portfolios?

    ananda Friday, 15 July 2016 03:40 PM

    This man is mega fraudster. He should be sent to jail on successful prosecution. via DM Android App

    So yahapalanya is for one side? What about the CB case? Hirunika, Patali, Rajitha, Mervin etc? No action?

    The GodFather Friday, 15 July 2016 04:10 PM

    True, but there are businessmen who used Basil to earn a profit by giving him a commission, including a well known contractor who obtained jobs without proper tender procedures, what will happen to them?

    Citizen Friday, 15 July 2016 04:10 PM

    33 million is much less than the Central Bank bond scam?

    Wise Donkey Friday, 15 July 2016 04:42 PM

    Sharon Friday, 15 July 2016 04:45 PM

    Bond scam please........ This too should be investigated though it is peanuts compared to Bond scam.

    No Minister needs to predict the Public can predict who the next will be on the evidence available of the frauds It will be. all the Rajapakses, and then the rest

    Calistus Jayatilleke Friday, 15 July 2016 06:09 PM

    At this rate, it looks like prison is going to be the first house of the whole Rajapakse family.

    Mincy gomez Saturday, 16 July 2016 02:10 PM

    How about indicting Mahendran?

    Lalith Friday, 15 July 2016 07:59 PM

    When I see Basil the crooks face I want to vomit. What a shameless man, who does he think he is to use the boys from the forces to dress him and his stupid cheap wife. What he is getting is not enough....gallows is the fit place for him
