The National Freedom Front (NFF) today urged the government to set up a special prison to imprison white-collar criminals convicted of looting and abusing public resources.
NFF national organiser Jayantha Samaraweera said despite the Government claiming it would punish all fraudsters and looters, some well-known fraudsters were still at large.
He said new laws must be introduced if the prevailing laws were not sufficient to punish those who had robbed this country.
“We urge the government to introduce a new Bill in parliament and take action against those found guilty of fraud and corruption since 1977,” Mr. Samaraweera said .(Ajith Siriwardana and Piyumi Fonseka)

HEY MISTER ! ONCE A CRIMINAL ACT IS COMMITTED, THE PERSON BECOMES A CRIMINAL. THE QUESTION IS NOT THE COLLAR, BUT HOW INFLUENTIAL THE PERSON IS ???

Mahinananda, Mervyn Silva, Duminda, Rohitha are the main Rats who ate the public money. they should be punished along with Weerawansa.

Since 1977? Then your demand will NOT be met! If you can amend your request as since 2005, then yes.

In my mind there is without any doubt major financial corruption has been committed under MR period. Those who committed crime has to face justice. We vote for politician to rule our country with responsibility. But politician use their powe to steal public money. Some of the politicians become mega rich over a short period of time. There are lot still moving around. They should be in Welikade and not in parliament.

Better arrange for a 5 star prison now because your boss is going to be in it soon.

This is called diffusing the issue. Why did not the NFF call for inquiries during the pre 2005 period when they backed the previous MR regime? Now they want to stall the process.

Yes. Allocate a luxury hospital. What about Lanka hospital or convert Mattale to a Hospital.
Premalal Thursday, 26 February 2015 02:32 PM
Forget about special prison just get one conviction.

Mr.Jayantha Samaraweera, Where were you during the last regime of Mahinda and your leader Wimal? Look like you were in a good sleep and just woke up. You are hoodwinker just like your leader. For god sake, please stop talking nonsense and leave people alone.

willowsd Thursday, 26 February 2015 02:50 PM
What a stupid statement, like his boss?
sita Thursday, 26 February 2015 02:59 PM
Must be for your wife!!
kan Thursday, 26 February 2015 03:03 PM
Then you need a new prison with at least 225 rooms .
N.Wijeratne Thursday, 26 February 2015 07:09 PM
Good idea for those in the National Fraudulent front!DONKEY!
Dee Thursday, 26 February 2015 04:03 PM
We are sure your boss will be used to much lesser facilities. What a man gets in the latter few years matter much less. What he is used to in the early part of life matters a lot. So dont worry he will fit in there.
TONY Thursday, 26 February 2015 04:06 PM
YOU DID NOT WANT THIS KIND OF SPECIAL SERVICE UNTIL YOUR LEADERS WIFE WAS TAKEN IN. YOU WANT TO MAKE ROOM FOR YOUR BOSS UNDER LUXURY CELLS
Conwoman Thursday, 26 February 2015 04:17 PM
He is right..... he knows that all of them are to go there..
Sabe Thursday, 26 February 2015 04:18 PM
Of course he has a point there. If you allow these fraudsters to mingle with other criminal, they will expand their network very easily. Best is solitary confinement.
OMG Thursday, 26 February 2015 04:21 PM
Usually Muzammil brings forward these stupid ideas. It looks stupidity is contagious.

This guy is off his head .Looks as if he is already seeking his own accommodation in prisons.
