    Typical 'distraction' strategy by going after small fry.

    well done SL police. Keep it up. These items once once donated should be enshirned in to a new Stupa in the area.

    Saturday, 01 May 2010 01:55 PM

    Police is great here.

    what about the other "valuable artifacts"?, Have they landed in to their pockets

    Saturday, 01 May 2010 06:27 PM

    Obviously the culprits could not inflence the Police. Hats off to the cops. Lots of ancient artefacts are plundered and sold to tourists etc and it is a big business. Archaelogical dept and the ministry of religious affairs should recruit local volunteers especially in remote barely inhabited places to take up a custodian role and also to monitor these illegal activities and report.

    Let your religion be less of a theory and more of a love affair.

    Good ruse to establish Sinhala hegemony!

    This is almost the dust compare to the real hunders and thevies of sri Lankan treasury.

    Sunday, 02 May 2010 03:08 AM

    We should appriciate the hunders for their hard job.
    They are much better than politicians who do not work hard but, make lots of money for them.

    These rouges must be eleminated from the society. Government should take stern action and immediately change the law. They must be jailed for minimum of 20 years. Well done police keep up your good work.
