    They know the criminals but wait till they commit a few crimes and then arrest them. Why is that ? Is the intelligence so backward when it comes to these type of crimes involving weapons and drugs ???

    Why do murder suspects allowed to be bailed out. This is a wrong practice, because a murderer has no symapthies with those that would furnish evidence against them. In any event a murder suspect is an anti social element that is dangerous. We should be more concerned with the human rights of innocent people rather than human rights of thugs and murderers that terrorise the society. If an individual lives thretening the society, they have already scarificed their human rights, and deserves no sympathy from the society. Lock them up, NOW!

    Now don't give him bail anymore. Keep him in jail until the case finish.

    These fellows are all political henchies who call the shots. This is pada show to arrest bcos the elections around the corner, he will get away like "main suspect" for any murder. Where did you hear bail given to a main suspect. Now the defense secretary will have pittu in his mouth for this kind of activities.

    Ok. A job well done. Will the police now locate other accomplice the Dubai caller. Was this a contract and why???? How come murder suspects are on bail? Make sure all accomplices with Konda Janith get no bail.

    The reason why violent crime can never be controlled in the South is because “ Every Sinhalese Politician From the Village Council to The Parliament “ has a group of hardened criminals as their own private bodyguards. Fortunately this culture did not exist for the Tamil Politicians in the North.
