    Nodrog Tuesday, 09 October 2012 11:02 AM

    A predicted verdict which is an insult to the intelligence of the people. The Silvas will pat themselves on the back that once again they've bucked the system but remember...what goes around comes around!

    Mervin Honey Tuesday, 09 October 2012 10:58 AM

    May be you and your father give death alerms to court judges house as you all did for jurnerlists...But remeber you always can make thugs in this country to the innocent people. One day ur destiney will be there in paradise okay mind it

    misunderstood Wednesday, 10 October 2012 03:33 AM

    in other words the son of the minister has acted lawfully!! MMM we thought defence secretary is Mr Gotabhaya Rajapakse. He was strict with underworld!!

    prasad Wednesday, 10 October 2012 03:42 AM

    Spencer48 Tuesday, 09 October 2012 12:14 PM

    Please . . . enough missery why are you reporting this as a news . . ..

    Shamali Tuesday, 09 October 2012 12:18 PM

    Didn't the major inform court under oath that he had gone to check on a drug dealer and that he had reported so to his immediate senior? Probably the drug dealer is the Ecstasy provider MS. Was that a lie? If this is the kind of judgements that one can get from the Army's court of inquiry, no wonder they threw SF behind bars.

    Little Johnny Wednesday, 10 October 2012 04:26 AM

    This country's law is a disgrace to the uniform....

    Sumithi Tuesday, 09 October 2012 08:38 AM

    Also Major has dropped his gun to the floor and bashed his head against the wall. The report also suggest to take expert skills of Mr. Malaka into training the armed forces in future. All Future intelligence work to be reported to Dr. Silva for pre approval.

    Thomas Tuesday, 09 October 2012 08:40 AM

    Expected verdict

    Raj Wednesday, 10 October 2012 05:35 AM

    Pregnant mothers offering seats to them, while politicians assaults them, that will be the new Ranaviru Advertisement.

    Paul Condon-ICC. Tuesday, 09 October 2012 08:58 AM

    Bless...Need more fireworks from Malaka...Now attack the Judges...

    ProtestBuster Tuesday, 09 October 2012 09:08 AM

    The truth is bitter but the Major has been at fault. accept it and shut up Thomas, Real Peace and Pavan.

    ANTON Tuesday, 09 October 2012 09:19 AM

    Now he can go to Tamilnadu for further studies.

    RH Tuesday, 09 October 2012 09:25 AM

    Sadly some people are blind to the fact that law and order actually prevails well today, comparing to the 80s and 90s. They are also blind to the evident efforts made to safeguard law and order by the Army, Police and Civil defense Force, with Mr. Gotabhaya Rajapakse at helm. This incident stands as proof that the Army is not given the authority to hide their lapses, as it surely would have happened in the past.

    RH Tuesday, 09 October 2012 09:28 AM

    Sad to see that some people are blind to the fact that law actually prevails well today, comparing to the 80s, 90s. They are also blind to the evident efforts made in order to safeguard law and order by the country's Army, Police & Civil Defense Force, with Mr. Gotabhaya Rajapakse at helm. This incident is proof to the fact that Army is not given the authority to hide their lapses, as it surely could have happened in past.

    Cancer Tuesday, 09 October 2012 09:25 AM

    OK lets say that he has violated the Army laws and if so he needs to face disciplinary action. But what above Malaka and Rehan?? Didn't they beat the major who was hospitalized??? Where is the CCTV recording???

    Nihal Amarasekera Tuesday, 09 October 2012 09:28 AM

    Major insult to a respected army.

    Sumithi Tuesday, 09 October 2012 09:34 AM

    Yep better to do Narcotic Investigations as a desk job isnt it? Major and now his replacement officers should contact the DR. and his Son in future investigations. Or ended up banging their own heads in hotel walls.

    Hal Tuesday, 09 October 2012 09:30 AM

    So now what about the big talk of "Ranawiru" where pregnant mum offer their seat in train and buses. Ha!

    Creepy Mastermind Tuesday, 09 October 2012 09:37 AM

    BEHIND THE SCENE!!!!

    KP Tuesday, 09 October 2012 09:35 AM

    Major at fault! He was not on duty. And that justfies Malaka can assualt him? what a law??? Can MSD provide security to Malaka? Were MSD officers on duty at the time? what action will be taken against them? It seems more Qs than As!

    Vimal Tuesday, 09 October 2012 09:34 AM

    When a normal citizen says something about the army that person is a traitor and supporter of terrorists. But when a politian's son beats up someone in the army he is not at fault. So just because the major is at fault the duchebag is free? Did the major beat himself up?
