    At least some arrests here - unlike the case about three months ago when a politician and his gang consumed liquor at a heritage sight and assualted the officials who intervened. The police there, even refused to record a complaint.

    The CDF is supposed to be a 'disciplined force'. The personnel involved in this incident are a sheer disgrace to that 'force.' Irrespective of the decision in the court case, they shoud be severely deallt with on disciplinary grounds, by the relevant authorities.

    The CIVIL DEFENSE FORCES must be disbanded now, and the POLICE TAKE CONTROL OF THE IVIL AFFAIRS OF THE COUNTRY.

    There are two types of wild animals in Wilpattu now, only one type consumes liqour, other type tends to mind their own business unless provoked by the said other type of animal.

    Arrested and..............................??
    We all here want to know the outcome.

    Released on bail as usual, not even held for 24hrs, makes you wonder. What about the offending tourists? This is a serious offence but in this country all is a matter of influence.
