    Good move , please keep them inside, However the damage has already done by this so called saviours of the main race and the unfortunate tax payer has to fork out the money which run in to Billions as compensation for the victims.

    while commending the arrest. this really shows how dirty is sri lanka's politics. no one will be charged ultimately. These games will be played until everyone forgets. There is no true development in countries which is plagued by hatred, gullible voters, scavenging politics. Its our fate!!!
