    Hope a fair Judgment will be delivered. Unlike former CJ, the present CJ would not say ‘we released him, thinking that he will be a good man thereafter’

    Good if he does that. We will get to know who really wanted NSB to purchase The Finance shares!

    Bet all these actions will fade away when the SC clears the govt bills.

    This has only made it to court due to the ongoing dispute with the judiciary and the Chief Justice. If it was all ok then this would have just disappeared like all the other cases. Selective action.

    AJ Friday, 26 October 2012 12:11 PM

    He has the best insurance that not even money can buy... Keep in mind that his wife is the Chief Justice... So which judge in his/her right mind would take up this case

    Poirot Thursday, 25 October 2012 12:17 PM

    Sri Lanka lost millions of Dollars in Oil Hedging Deal.Deal makers did world tours for Hedging Study funded by clients. The wheeler Dealers went Scott free and the top man was given an another splashy appointment because he had the right family connection. For them no Bribery Commission nor any other investigation.

    What about defence secretary's buddy/business partner Rene Silva who looted over 200 millions in this fradulent deal. Is he off the hook just like his brother Duminda Silva?
