    Lokka provided the tune and they danced! So the one who provided the tune must be questioned!

    It would be interesting to see what the outcome of this would be. Did they actually take all that money or did someone else by-passed the money through them.Clean this corrup generation.

    Tax them if they had received any unreasonable sum at that ceremony.

    Overinflating prices is not a crime. Harassment of artists is. Election in 5 years right? Wait.

    bro.. no tax... put them behind the bars.. they should feel the pain for our hard earnings!!

    Rs 15 million was just petty cash for the Rajapaksas. I am surprised that they did anything less than 50 million. It would not have been worth their while.

    Still the big fish are at large. Nothing has been done to catch them. These artists may be earning out of their talents and labour.

    Many have come to give statements and have gone. No news afterwards. So no need to panic on these visits.
