    Intelligence Chiefs in all countries have access to secret funds. Only in SL they are exposed to the public.

    Have we ever heard this type of things happening in any other country. Chief of intelligence who with his team provided vital information to end 30 years of terrorism being humiliated. For Rs.3.2 million. what is the cost of central bank bomb blast, cost of Sapugaskanda oil tank blast, cost of Katunayake air post blast. what is the annual cost weapons used in the war what is the cost of 600 policeman killed by the terrorist. What is the cost of life of President Premadasa, How much did the government spend to treat Mr.Chandrika Bandaranayake, after her eye was wounded due to terrorist attack. Take a count of all these.

    According to list of the disasters you give, it looks intelligence has FAILED to stop them. So what is your point ?

    Ranil Wednesday, 14 June 2017 01:42 PM

    It’s a Sad news. they must be rewarded instead of bringing them to FCID or whatever.

    Looks like all these crooks have been busy bankrupting the country, all the while chanting nationalism to distract the gullible masses!

    Ganesh Wednesday, 14 June 2017 02:08 PM

    Rewarded for embezzlement ?? Rewards are for good deeds only.

    Bala Wednesday, 14 June 2017 02:48 PM

    You mean if he is guilty of a crime against people by making money, he hould go scot free. then let us say no action against Forces for any crime.

    Liberal One Wednesday, 14 June 2017 02:51 PM

    Only the military police should be allowed to investigate against something as sensitive and intelligence services. What does Anura Dissanayakes stooges at FCID know about intelligence?

    Nish Wednesday, 14 June 2017 02:53 PM

    If we had a FCID before the end of war, I'm sure we wouldn't have won the war. Who wants to answer these political billy boys after risking your life for the country?

    Hesh Wednesday, 14 June 2017 02:55 PM

    FCID should check how their boss, Anura Kumara Dissanayake managed to send his son to a private university before turning their guns at a man like Hendawitharana.
