    "The suspect is to have had an illegal automatic weapon......"
    Does this mean that Sri Lankans (or particular Sri Lankans) have the right to own automatic weapons????

    Disarming before the elections is good whatever party they belong to paramilitaries should be called as such and be decommissioned.

    People in the North and East are sick of paramilitary political culture. This is the main reason, people in the east prefer SF.

    Sunday, 17 January 2010 10:12 AM

    So too late for this guy to cross over!

    Sunday, 17 January 2010 11:06 AM

    Disarming of any person who has no authority to hold weapon is a good deed.

    Sunday, 17 January 2010 01:41 PM

    Will the Police Officer who ordered the arrest be transferred?

    Sunday, 17 January 2010 01:53 PM
