    This scam took place during the rule of previous regime, why were they not arrested before ? Did they have political connection ? Were they protected like KP by the previous regime ?

    The Spiritual leader of Kamil Kuthubdeen and Murshid, one Muhajireen from Matale should be punished too. He is the one who has advised these people to steal such a huge amount.

    what on earth does this have to do with the freedom of the press? the release of names of criminals is a matter for the courts to decide, not for journalists.
