    I congraulate the judge who made this order to arrest the IGP. I hope this DIG Herath is not a powerful politician's friend. In that case, the poor Judge will lose his job.

    I wish all Sri Lankan judges are like this

    This Judge is a TRUE Judge.
    See. recently a minister said the the Police dept of Sri Lanka is one of the top 3 corrupt depts ...Quite evident here when the DIG choses not to arrest suspects despite a court order as the DIG thinks he is The LAW.
    Best is to arrest him, refuse bail and get him to see the inside of one of the jails.
