    who is that artist?

    Political circus Tuesday, 26 February 2013 06:19 AM

    Both look like identicak twins except for the fellow with a bit of a goatie. The Police artist must go to artist night school if anyone can identify these cartoon charachters.

    Why all the troubles. Just ask Faraz he knows who the culprits are.

    Fusion Sunday, 24 February 2013 07:28 AM

    Drug addicts? One speculation about Mr. Faraz Shauketaly shooting is that it had something to do with an article(s) by Mr. Shauketaly on narcotics use within SL prisons.

    kandykolla Sunday, 24 February 2013 07:43 AM

    Mahinda Monday, 25 February 2013 04:44 AM

    Oh! its look like the same people who assasinate the suday leader's Lasantha. I think if you ask from Mr Gotabaya he will tell you who are the culprits. Mr IGP do think that Sri Lankan people are fools?
