    it sounds the govt. and the police has the might to define and decide what is the truth and what is a lie.

    Don't jump the gun, Mr. Dias. The media says 'false info, who knows how true or false the info is ? DEIYO THAMAI OVA DHANNEN - I don't know why, ha, ha, ha.

    That's the only thing they didn't poses. If they could they will come with that even.

    R.Dias Thursday, 10 February 2011 11:52 AM

    GOOD THAT THE PRIEST HAS NOT TOLD THE TRUTH ABOUT NORTH - EAST

    GOSL must maintain zero tolerance police with regard to LTTE , separation, and INGOs, if we have to survive. Also should behave like Israel in dealing with such matters.

    Wara Friday, 11 February 2011 03:39 AM

    But the real truth is one. Also no country has given so called freedom of expression regarding state security. Especially in US & UK !!

    ajith Friday, 11 February 2011 03:41 AM

    No matter priest or layman, who ever who betray their motherland should be severely dealt with.

    Roshan Friday, 11 February 2011 04:43 AM

    But speaking the truth is not betraying the country.. The priest did not that any information spread against the government is false.

    pj Thursday, 10 February 2011 12:46 PM

    Yes ...because the North is the Heaven and the East is Paradise!.... The police has forgotten to add some Arms and ammunition in the list of items found with the arrested.!!

    BISHOP Friday, 11 February 2011 04:54 AM

    should be punished if charges are true...

    srinath.gunaratne Thursday, 10 February 2011 01:14 PM

    There is something call freedom of information too. What is wrong for someone may be right for another one. As long as you do not break the law.!!!

    SUMI KUMARAN Thursday, 10 February 2011 01:34 PM

    V.D.Jayawardene Friday, 11 February 2011 05:58 AM

    This is another tall one to divert public attention.Tell us another.

    Jim Dougal Thursday, 10 February 2011 05:04 PM

    Actually I thought that was official government policy anyway, or at least making them 'disappear' possibly in a white van, never to be seen again.

    Madihe putha Thursday, 10 February 2011 05:17 PM

    They have done mischief making during LTTE time, hiding behind the robes. They are still at it. These disloyal elements should be severely punished.

    C. Senthilan Thursday, 10 February 2011 05:39 PM

    You seem to be a real lunatic! Please do not delay your visit to Angoda Mental Hospital. Earlier the better. You fit in very well there.

    singasongo Thursday, 10 February 2011 07:57 PM
