    IG has too much to handle. MR gives him all incidents to probe and finally no outcome

    Minister Saturday, 16 February 2013 06:39 AM

    Ha ha ha ha ha haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!

    Abidharma Saturday, 16 February 2013 06:45 AM

    Why not elect a parliamentary select committee to probe into the shooting.

    Lobo Sunday, 17 February 2013 06:00 AM

    Ram, your insult exposes your lack of class, intelligence and absence of a good up-bringing.

    Ravi Sunday, 17 February 2013 05:31 PM

    There's one official Govt. and many taliban governments that are been sheltered by this official govt. It's time for UN to invade Sri Lanka.

    janaka Saturday, 16 February 2013 01:33 PM

    Well Said Rajaraja only if President order the investigation will take place otherwise nothing. This is what you call One Man Show and sometime behind this investigation. They will arrest an innocent guy ant then after some days they will let him go and close the matter.

    raj Sunday, 17 February 2013 05:56 PM

    it means what happened to Lasantha's murder case will happen to this case too

    Mr Retort Saturday, 16 February 2013 01:52 PM

    Do it in the same style as Lasantha's. bullshit

    Cobra Saturday, 16 February 2013 01:52 PM

    janaka Saturday, 16 February 2013 02:39 PM

    Why the President has to order to investigate ???? Something Fishy ?????? Why can't the police investigate. I can see from President's Face he is guilty.

    SureshP Saturday, 16 February 2013 07:31 AM

    To me it seems like a secret code which means "don't do anything"

    Another journalist narrowly escaped in Fools Paradise!

    Dinesh Saturday, 16 February 2013 07:38 AM

    Personnel dispute or land dispute.....case closed nobody is arrested.

    Besides....we should all be journalist so that if we get beaten or shot at the case is immediately investigated....LoL

    saif Saturday, 16 February 2013 07:45 AM

    once again, a shooting and order from the president to prob IMMEDIATELY and things will be forgotten......fed up!!!!

    DN Saturday, 16 February 2013 07:50 AM

    Yes..fully agree with you. I will give another assurance. Like in the past the report of this investigation will never come out.

    power Saturday, 16 February 2013 07:49 AM

    JUP,UNP,TNA and LTTE killed hundreds of journalist last 30 years of period.Probe this killing also.

    Enough is enough, some still say SL has free media.

    Gabo Singho Saturday, 16 February 2013 08:08 AM

    How about a 'probe' to find out who murdered Lasantha Wickrematunga in broad daylight?

    Russel Saturday, 16 February 2013 04:05 PM

    i dont think so government involve for this case , becouse of they have enough problems to answer in Gineva,

    Mihin Drama Saturday, 16 February 2013 08:37 AM

    Cobbler Saturday, 16 February 2013 08:57 AM

    Anybet there will be no arrests. A drug addict may be arrested.

    tito Sunday, 17 February 2013 12:00 AM

    I thought an immediate probe to any attempted murder was automatic. .. is it more thorough if the President orders it? Has this expedited the arrest of suspects before? via DM Android App

    JAYASIRI Monday, 18 February 2013 03:06 AM

    this is work of SUNDAY LEADER BY THEM SELF.

    Fernando Sunday, 17 February 2013 11:49 AM

    instead of all these talks and complains here, we (public) should find a solution for the crimes including the news papers, we should request the law and order published in the news paper, like in the other countries, it will keep the public aware the status of the investigation and out come of the cases. Where public can question the responsible authorities in a press meeting. For an example like Rizana's case+8 coconut 12 year old case...which is a very good initiative by the media , where political pressure were on authorities and some positive results may come out.

    firefox Saturday, 16 February 2013 10:32 AM

    Every things done on Al Capone's orders!
    What a country!!!

    Jagath Leanage Saturday, 16 February 2013 10:38 AM

    mmmmmm......Ordering immediate probe means something fishy.

    Labby Saturday, 16 February 2013 04:58 AM

    Haven't we seen this eyewash many times before ?

    akashi Sunday, 17 February 2013 12:00 AM

    verdict of probe....the journalist confessed to shooting himself via DM Android App

    Mason Saturday, 16 February 2013 05:04 AM

    Many an immediate probe have been ordered, but nothing has come to light. Just a white-wash. No serious intention of maintaining law and order.

    Political circus Saturday, 16 February 2013 05:11 AM

    Police probe?. Eyewash nothing will happen. No one will be caught like all the other probes against Journalists.who are the victims. Better run away from this country like Fredrica and save your life.

    PRASANNAJIT Saturday, 16 February 2013 05:13 AM

    Does the Police has to wait till the President orders them to investigate?

    nimpere Saturday, 16 February 2013 11:00 AM

    There had been " Immediate investigation" to number of similar incidents , but....outcome of the investigation was negative...Citizens of this country have no faith in this "Investigations"

    poosa Saturday, 16 February 2013 05:17 AM

    Thank you. That reminds me...what happened to the probe on the murder of Lasantha Wickramatunga?

    Kodithuwakkuarachchi Saturday, 16 February 2013 05:21 AM

    Condemnation? .

    Something better than nothing.

    Issa Saturday, 16 February 2013 05:18 AM

    Although many a time the President has ordered the IGP/Police to carry out immediate investigations in respect of assassinations/assaults on Journalist, it appears that the IGP/Police have never carried out the Presidents Order.

    weha Saturday, 16 February 2013 05:18 AM

    Aiyoo why worry? i think he shot himself. besides you guys couldnt catch LWs killers until now.

    Nodrog Sunday, 17 February 2013 02:11 AM

    yes yes...he also got rid of the 'invincible' prabha no? Does it still hurt? Please go back to your job at the petrol-station.

    Rohan1 Saturday, 16 February 2013 05:23 AM

    WOW :)

    Does anyone have a list of Probes that the Chinthana Group had promised and conducted.

    SL_EXPAT Saturday, 16 February 2013 05:19 AM

    So far how many cases you have ordered to probe and how many you have taken action against the culprits.. this is end of another story....

    lalitha Saturday, 16 February 2013 05:20 AM

    theyll arrest a drug addict, say its personal dispute n case closed

    Chams Saturday, 16 February 2013 11:16 AM

    Result of the investigation: Faraz shot himself and died on the spot.

    John Eldo Perera Sunday, 17 February 2013 02:38 AM

    parliamentary select committee good, because decision will be very very very fast.

    Lalindra Saturday, 16 February 2013 05:21 AM

    Like many of those other probes ordered immediately, this too will end up forgotten with the space of time.

    Anver Saturday, 16 February 2013 05:27 AM

    Good, like in :Lasantha's case!

    Lobo Saturday, 16 February 2013 05:37 AM

    Does it mean nothing will be done by the authorities unless the president orders a probe? This issue also will be put in the 'file and forget' file.

    Coconut Donkey Saturday, 16 February 2013 05:37 AM

    With all that is happening, it is simply unconscionable for the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting to be held in Sri Lanka!

    VEDDAH Tuesday, 26 February 2013 04:28 AM

    AL CAPONE IS A KID WHEN COMPARED TO OUR BOSS

    dutugemunu1 Saturday, 16 February 2013 05:52 AM

    .How many times he has ordered this type of immediate inquiries without any result.There is no opposition in the country at least to remind the number of probes ordered by president without success.

    rajaraja Saturday, 16 February 2013 11:54 AM

    is this mean, if president doesn't order no investigation will be done

    Thomas Saturday, 16 February 2013 06:00 AM

    Set a Thief to Catch a Thief, thats the story

    Ajith Saturday, 16 February 2013 06:01 AM

    No wonder we are now been cornered by the commonwealth.
    Shame!!!!

    PRASANNAJIT Saturday, 16 February 2013 06:11 AM

    It was Kangetta.
