    may be there was no one to defend the interests of the deceased - you are lonely when you are dead

    i have no words for the people of this country.

    Why such a light punishment for murder?

    Gadzooks Thursday, 08 November 2012 03:25 AM

    Yes, what are the mitigating circumstances?

    lankaputha Wednesday, 07 November 2012 01:07 PM

    Signs of legislation going down the pallam. Killing their own father is a charge could be settled by 2500. My gooood

    shouldn't we check the number of bank accounts and amounts of FX in bank accounts among some these judicial officers?

    richardson Thursday, 08 November 2012 05:59 PM

    This is how our judiciary operates in this paradise

    After all a Sri Lankan father's life is worth only Rs.2500/- x 2. Are fathers so cheap??

    Chams Wednesday, 07 November 2012 01:38 PM

    What a farce? Two years imprisonment and Rs.2500 fine for homicide. This is the value of a father in our country today.

    Judiciary should be responsible for its own downfall and that of the society.

    Dilbert Gunathilaka Wednesday, 07 November 2012 01:46 PM

    Why is it so light punishment for such gruesome violence? No wonder the crimes are increasing in this country.

    Amanda De Silva Thursday, 08 November 2012 04:27 AM

    This is ridiculous, two year prison sentence and a fine for killing their father, unbelievable. They should have got life in prison if nothing else. That's the justice system for you. Real criminals are out on the streets while truly innocent people are suffering for things they did not do.

    Sri Lankan Wednesday, 07 November 2012 02:29 PM

    Cant believe. Its a shame to say we are Sri Lankans.

    Jamieson Wednesday, 07 November 2012 03:08 PM

    Judge's brain should be checked to see if its working properly. In some countries its the electric chair for murder and here its only a penalty of Rs2,500/-.

    anti-elitists Wednesday, 07 November 2012 03:44 PM

    Wow. That's less than $20. Haha what a country.

    Balance after death.
