    `` yahapalanaya`` good governance as promissed to the people should not allow anyone to take the law on their hand.

    It is very ugly to observe how our Sri Lankans behave. The wild animals canbehave better than these rowdies. Mr. President, whoever they are, pleasepunish thoroughly so that they will never do this sort things again.Cyril

    Once Mervyn tied a man to a tree but when the investigations started the story was the victim tied himself to the tree and Mervin escaped scott free. I think this story will end up like that. The victim becomes the DOER.
