    Always small time crooks get caught and paraded. Big time crooks not caught and if caught not paraded and out immediately. Something rotten in the paradise isle

    I am sure this is the biggest most burning problem facing Sri Lanka today. If these guys were in the US Elon Musk would be in jail by now for illegally assembling vehicles.

    Why arrested. Give him a licence to carry out this project and give him room to even export these products to improve the economy. via DM Android App

    With all the rubbish going on I can't believe this is even considered a crime! There is a whole industry here outlawed due to stupid short sighted laws.

    Why don't you arrest the Custom Officer too for not conducting proper checking.

    Anyway in SL motor bikes and Tuk-tuks are very vulnerable to Police radars than Prados, Landcruisers, Landrovers or other similar vehicles

    I thought majority of the public were the frogs in the well but looks like the authorities are worse - blind as moles! Cut the crap! Legalize the God damn thing, let a man have his freedom and his human right to choose! They are motorcycles, not armored trucks! Bring up effective laws or amend the ongoing if there's a doubt in loosening the strings! Bring proper and an accurate licensing method for the motorcycle riders when Driving Licence are issued. Just STOP playing the same tune over and over again filling up your pockets with Indian Rupees! Look ahead with generosity because as a country, we are far more behind...
