    No, they are not "dragging" on! It takes a while to do these things properly. The "White Van" culture is no more.

    Why not take up the more damning reort against Nishantha and Kapila Chandrasena first - it is about huge losses and misdemeanors, as handed over to Arjuna the Minister.

    Slowly but surely one by one these criminal elements have to pay back for their sins against the people!

    A dog and pony show by the GOSL, waste of state resources. Dragging on knowing that people will forget all the excesses and criminal acts of the previous regime.

    Forget the Eye Wash part; what is required is a Full Back Wash, technical term for washing off all accumulated dirt.

    After all of the mismanagement and fraud in the Airlines they are only investigating the Catering service?

    Ben Hurling Tuesday, 27 October 2015 07:58 PM

    Given the scale of fraud at Sri Lankan for 10 years Nishantha should be in jail by now. Instead he is called in for a chit chat about catering. This investigation is a total farce to cheat the people.

    All these people are being questioned, summoned, statements are taking etc etc, but what happens next? Does anyone know?
