    What is wrong with Sri Lankan people in top posts? Can we trust any of them? Why in the world these buggers engage in fraudulent activities when they are supposed to be serving the country? When will this end?

    Not to worry nothing will happen, even if a case is filed it will get postponed over and over again.
