    Super. This time for a change it had been the lorry that had turned from the main road. Normally it is the VIP vehicle that goes all over the road.

    That means he have traveled without the Police back up vehicle? It look like a warning to him from the top.

    The driver of the vehicle it appears has got a royal treatment from the guys in the back vehicle. Better than the UNP MPs got in Noracholai. via DM iPad app
