    Ahhh a fat man who sought a FAT bribe, no wonder he is trying to bring MR to power...throw him in jail...

    Sapumal Friday, 26 June 2015 03:53 PM

    Anyone is free to shout "Political Revenge" now but remember how MR took political revenge on SF first

    ara Friday, 26 June 2015 04:05 PM

    this is crazy, what about the rogues they mentioned during election time, seems like if u support MR u r likely to be framed, i think the real rogues r doing the smart thing by keeping their mouths shut

    Anil Friday, 26 June 2015 04:09 PM

    So you accept there is no difference between MR and MS?

    Ha.. Ha .. Haa... This will give the public a clear message not to talk too much as you will end up at the FCID..

    Jehan Friday, 26 June 2015 04:21 PM

    This is becoming all too obvious now. Criticized the government and here comes the FCID.

    Sapumal Friday, 26 June 2015 04:57 PM

    Mick Friday, 26 June 2015 05:00 PM

    All the cases against the opposition members, what about Arjuna Mahendran? Rishad Badurdeen? SB? Fowzie? and co they are not even called for a statement. Nothing but political harassment. Shame on yahapalana

    There is a difference Anil. You have not understood the comment of Sapumal. First statement is conjecture the latter is a fact.

    Bala Friday, 26 June 2015 05:18 PM

    Most certainly and an Ambulance, too.

    Ajith Friday, 26 June 2015 06:00 PM

    He made comments supporting Rajapaksa so FCID is for those offences.

    Donald Duck Saturday, 27 June 2015 10:26 AM

    This has become so childish now. If you support MR, you are at FCID. If you support MS, RW, CBK, TNA, JVP, Muslim Congress then are safe no matter what offense you have committed. Come on guys, wake up!
