    If this Happened to a Sri Lankan in here he would have been still behind bars. This May be to show the Brits that we Sri Lankans are a friendly nation even if you are a thief .

    Even if you have brown or black skin, political clout overides the colour of your skin.

    I believe cost for arresting him and producing to the court was higher than this.

    Calistus, are you sure ? Even locals are released on bail, with offences like this. Do not run down the judiciary without knowing the relevant law.
