    Ah but that is if they play by the rules. Wait and see another year & then no arrest even - may be Ekneligoda style.

    The sad story (in fact funny) of our Govt is that all who support the opposition are considered either not patriotic or conspiring against the Govt.

    This is a funny decision. Attorney General giving directions to the Magistrate. In 1990 I believe, the power to grant bail was taken away from the AG's powers. It is surprising that they are still having that power. Bail would have been granted long ago if the courts were independent.

    He is the cause for many problems for the Army and other security related matters. The critics who support him should carefully investigate what he has done.

    What a joke Sri Lankan democracy has become...MR doesn't want anyone around to criticize him

    True , AG should not get involved in giving directions to Magistrates but who knows what more is in store now that the AG's Department is directly under the President himself. Very funny Law and Order in this country.

    Slowly, slowly the tight grip is slipping.

    So another victim is released. WHY NOT RELEASE SF TO MARK FIRST ANNIVERSARY OF WAR VICTORY

    Yea, the iron clutch is surely and steadily slipping. One cannot go on arresting people without charges and hope to hold them in jails.
