    wolf under sheep skin, MR is upto something. No politicians should be allowed to visit the prisoners. Prison has become a favorite visiting place to MR after temple.

    Whether one is a Intelligence officer or even the President of a country, if one has committed and participated in criminal acts, then one should face the consequences, law and punishment for the same. This action by MaRa shows that in this country their are very high level support for acts of criminality, arrogance, impunity and unlawful activities. We should bow our head in shame for having leaders of this stature.

    MR is seen all over the media again, he wants to remain famous to contest in LP election. Other than speaking in parliament, he is speaking from temple, prison, crime commission etc.

    Gov make all types of allegations to cover up their failure to rule the country. They have failed in every aspect and the most recent one is the budget. Keep talking.

    Who on earth will allow a prime suspect to visit another suspect when the case is going on? Only in srilanka

    Only MR cronies are saying that the budget is a failure. Everyone else is happy with it.

    Every life has same value including Prageeth. All murders deserve to pay for the crime even if they were former kings
