    How come in all high profile cases like the Avant Garde floating armory and the murders of Lasantha, Thajudeen, Rathupaswela and now Welikada Prisoners the main culprit i.e. the one who gave the orders is never questioned and remanded? This is why this government lost the LG elections and will lose the next presidential and general elections.
