    I dont think this is anywhere near the Yahapalanaya norms. A person who is absconding arrest is being issued a passport? Please, the PM and the President, we need your involvement to correct these types of unethical practices.

    This is the funniest answer a minister could give. In any other civilized country the minister involved would have to resign.

    Please bring this criminal to Srilanka with international help.

    The Govt. should investigate this and reveal how this crook got a passport.

    Another one of Ali Baba's forty thieves. If he has nothing to hide and is clean, why is he staying outside the country? It is clear that he would have stashed a lot of money to be able to gallivant and stay outside the country... one day in BKK, the other day in Dubai and another day in UK.

    How come a criminal is given a passport to run away from Srilanka?

    Pala Friday, 09 September 2016 09:29 AM

    UN says no one can't become stateless by denying a passport or citizenship, even to a criminal unless the courts say so. This is what happened this scumbag. Not the fault of the Govt.

    how the devil is he going to take possesion of this passport. no one seem to know his whereabouts.it should be sent via courier with a mandatory signature of the named person on passport with a photo identity as proof and also the courier to take photo of the receiving person. and of course couriir payment collected at time of delivery by debit/credit card.

    Yahapalanaya is afraid to take action or there are deals between them. Sad as why we voted them. via DM Android App
