    Can dragging on court cases for various "flimsy" reasons (which look obvious to all) be also due to such reasons as well ? Eg. Thajudeen, Lasantha etc etc

    To eradicate corruption it should start from the top, I mean the very top of the country.

    If the accused is ready to pay a bribe of Rs.80,000/- to get the case withdrawn, we can assume that the offence is very serious, and the punishment may run to several millions or long imprisonment if he is convicted. Mmm.... what kind of crime could this be?
