    Some people accused SF for LWs death before he became pal with RW. Soon after that all those accusers changed the tune to praise SF.

    A thief is a thief and must be punished, irrespective of whether he was involved in the murder or not.

    Justice cannot reach to the person who ordered Lasantha's Killing.

    Judiciary in this country will produce some small dramas like this. When it comes to big issues like political assassinations, denial of civil rights of that like Fonseka's , they don't eve utter a word against it.
    Shame on you judges and lawyers (Sorry for very few honest guys)

    Sanhida Friday, 12 November 2010 02:52 PM

    Prageeth Eknaligoda Friday, 12 November 2010 02:55 PM

    Please releses the man who took the Lasantha's phone.

    Lasantha is a traitor. He should be severely punished.
    He was the Sinhalese Media Spoksman of LTTE.
