    If you want to forgive, forgive the inmates who has changed, not the list sent by some politicians to take advantage of independence day forgiving. After 6months you'll see same guys in the same prison. Crazy!

    Our prison system not contains appropriate rehabilitation and required sociological, psychological or moral guidance to prisoners besides worse economic scenarios of these prisoners underwent. Who can expect them integrate into society with right moral without such guidance, instead of now they have learned from tactics of crime from hardcore prisoners..So here we go miracle of Asia!!!

    What about the compensation for the victims.
    Some of these god damn criminals should rot in jail.

    Slavery seems to exit in Sri Lanka as yet, otherwise why should a person get down on his knees and worship another human being?
