    Good comments, it prove how much people hate you and your family....

    Freddy Sunday, 10 May 2015 08:22 PM

    What a load of bullshit with this current regime if there is evidence of 18 billion than charge them or otherwise be prepared to be sued. But mahendran recent case is more genuine why hold back and accuse Namal and Family. Good governance gone bad. Rule of law or Raw.

    sanaboy Saturday, 09 May 2015 02:28 PM

    Of course, he cannot give the exact figures but the fact is that rajapaksas became unimaginably wealthier during the last 9 years.

    BE HAPPY YOU ARE GIVEN A CHANCE TO PROVE THAT YOU ARE A WELL QUALIFIED LAWYER.

    Mac Saturday, 09 May 2015 11:32 PM

    He is right may be not 18 billion May be 17 or 19

    TONY Saturday, 09 May 2015 11:35 PM

    MANGALA MAY NOT BE ABLE TO PROVE THE CLAIM, AS YOU WOULD HAVE CHANGED THE NAME OF ACCOUNT HOLDERS OR PURCHASED SOME ASSETS.

    OMG Saturday, 09 May 2015 03:01 PM

    Of course it will be hard to prove. The money will be under name of your many friends and concubines.

    Maya Sunday, 10 May 2015 12:11 AM

    Can not stop laughing. He, himself is a lawyer and made a logic-less statement.

    Nims Saturday, 09 May 2015 03:07 PM

    Why are your father, your brothers, uncles, cousing and others in the circle getting panicked so much. Just relax mate. When the time comes you all will be automatically ejected.

    Maya Sunday, 10 May 2015 12:20 AM

    Do not make challenging statement. Uncle Sam must have promised something for Mangala to make this claim.

    nothing real in the brain Saturday, 09 May 2015 03:08 PM

    now you wear trousher and coat like a lawyer. But in your and your family mind you may look like lawyer. But Public knows that who wrote the exam for you being in the ac room appointing someone in your place and got the law degree. Thats in you last really your videos shows how qualified your are what qualities should have to be a lawyer. Without studying properly and became a lawyer with someone help, doesn't know the quality of a lawyer. Money and your fathers influenced works on you. But nothing real in the brain

    Namal and other Rajapakses are confident they will not get caught. They have done these things in a way that their names wont surface and any world renowned investigator will stumble.Catch us if you can via DM Android App

    IF MANGALA PROVES THEN YOU DONT NEED TO QUIT. YOU WILL BE HANGED.

    Aba Jayasekera Saturday, 09 May 2015 03:21 PM

    What if it is proved to be less - say USD 1 Bn. That would be Rs.130,000 Million ?

    raj Sunday, 10 May 2015 02:48 AM

    it will be proved if you give time to the government.

    Paramita Sunday, 10 May 2015 12:43 PM

    How did his bogus law degree come to light. Is there proof of this.

    Manyd Monday, 11 May 2015 10:30 AM

    Freddy,Oh so you are also a beneficiary of the Rajapakse goons..

    lara Sunday, 10 May 2015 05:00 AM

    How come you got so much lorries and lands in Thissamarama . Growing Mango tree in hundreds of acers by forcefully imposing law (individual cannot have more than 3 acres )

    Akram Sunday, 10 May 2015 06:18 AM

    You may be able to PROVE that the Tsunami never affected SL shores thus the reason for your father taking 'full control' the Tsunami funds. The truth is far from proving.... SL has 90% literacy rate. People understand. See what happens.You guys say that you guys have no accounts outside of SL. You are you kidding?When your uncle Gota bought his first house in USA (before becoming def sec) Ms Gota listed her employment as grounds/building cleaner in the loan application. And now 4 mansions in the USA ?People in SL are not illiterate .

    Ram Sunday, 10 May 2015 06:28 AM

    Please have his assets checked to see if he is capable of holding such assets within a short spell as a politician and lawyer and also if he has filed tax returns for his professional income and any investment income

    16 comments against Namal and only 1 in support

    Don Sunday, 10 May 2015 03:23 PM

    Irrespective of the specific amount 18 billion, if you disagree with the amount, could you say how much you plundered the poor people of Lanka?

    damith Sunday, 10 May 2015 07:09 AM

    If your like your father, you will remain for the greed of power.

    Mervyn Silva Sunday, 10 May 2015 04:19 PM

    These rouges have the audacity to question the validity of corrupt activities committed by them. He may be worried that his ambition to become the leader of our country is now only a dream. He has forgotten how he answered the Law College exam under a special and differencial arrangement. These crimes if allowed to continue in the name of democracy, will provide a conducive environment for another youth insurrection in the South.

    Basil Sunday, 10 May 2015 07:35 AM

    What about Finance Minister?He should put in to jail first.

    srilankan Saturday, 09 May 2015 09:37 PM

    Please quite first then we will prove your innocence....

    renu Saturday, 09 May 2015 09:39 PM

    No You and the others will have to go to Jail forget Quitting Politics

    Punchirala Saturday, 09 May 2015 01:55 PM

    What do you know about politics. Did you first of all get through your GCE O/Levels legally.

    Vinasithamby Sunday, 10 May 2015 06:22 PM

    It is 100% true but the cash deposited in several banks inBahamas (heaven of money laundering).Therefore it is difficult to prove but already people have punished and their mental condition is pathetic.You cannot cheat theGod and you all have to pay for it.This is the simple truthof Hindu and Buddha dharma.I can see the poor people ofSri lanka are suffering and their curse that your family is undergoing. Mahinda is the main culprit and his two brothers deposited funds in three banks in Bahamas.

    Desmond Jeromme Sunday, 10 May 2015 08:28 AM

    Namal, yesterday I saw your father came to watch the Bradby in Kandy, what does he know about Rugger.
