    Deliberately dragging their feet hoping that it will go away.

    He is one of few involved and more culprits are there.

    What happened to the deposed one not to be heard now a days. Not to be seen visiting temples.

    Try to be a veeraya and opened his big mouth. He might even get a visit from the white van but there is some truth in it.Good luck

    Nov 11 is too late. Why waiting so long?

    Bala Tuesday, 25 August 2015 02:41 PM

    Legal delays prevent quick resolution of these crimes. It would have been better is this case is taken up next month itself. Lot of things can happen before Nov 11.

    Maya Tuesday, 25 August 2015 02:44 PM

    Wrong person and the write person should be called in.

    Sylvia Haik Wednesday, 26 August 2015 05:27 PM

    We should not antagonise Mervyn de Silva as he has valuable information gleaned while he was close to the disgraced Rajapakse regime.

    The white-van crime is getting white-washed by the SL judicial system.

    Ceylonese Tuesday, 25 August 2015 05:17 PM

    Why should it take that long? The culprit might commit suicide or try to run away and seek asylum in China and it would be too late. These are important issues that need to be investigated as soon as possible.

    Read between the lines. Next hearing will be in another years time

    Ceylonese Tuesday, 25 August 2015 05:26 PM

    In a recent documentary on Australian ABC 7.30 Report it was revealed that a white van gifted by the Australian Government was used to kidnap and torture prisoners during the MR regime.
