    Hey Arjun A. Will be released (on Bail) by lunch today!!!??

    AjithZ Sunday, 04 February 2018 08:58 AM

    Good. Now to apply the law and punish all involved. Most importantly, recover the billions they earned illegally. Lets wait and see whether we can have any hope or future to this country.

    I thought perpetual treasuries declared a record profit and also paid the Income tax on it.

    johan Sunday, 04 February 2018 08:59 AM

    Do not worry Marappana brothers will release them

    Jude Sunday, 04 February 2018 09:00 AM

    Hey CID should cut a deal with Palisena assuring him immunity in return give evidence (the truth) to prosecute Arjun A. successfully.!!??

    Jude Sunday, 04 February 2018 09:02 AM

    If all goes well !!!?? Arjun A. Can have RK as his Cell-mate!!??

    Gayan Sunday, 04 February 2018 09:03 AM

    What about the masterminds RW, RK etc?

    Lokka Sunday, 04 February 2018 09:04 AM

    Not enough. What about Mahendran and Ravi?

    Ronnie Bugger Sunday, 04 February 2018 12:20 PM

    Just what I wanted to ask?

    Banda Sunday, 04 February 2018 01:05 PM

    We must not forget that the Central Bank couldn't have been robbed in broad daylight and stay free for three years without the protection of a big politician.

    GH Sunday, 04 February 2018 09:05 AM

    Ridiculous, Where is Arjun Mahendran?.Prime Minister Ranil Wickremasinghe, Ravi Karunanayaka people are roaming freely?

    DD Sunday, 04 February 2018 01:35 PM

    And UNP is now asking people's vote at next week's election. What a shame???

    Sarath Sunday, 04 February 2018 09:58 PM

    Bond commission finds RW was NOT involved. So why are you attacking him? Maybe you have insider information a.k.a. gossip !

    Karu Sunday, 04 February 2018 09:11 AM

    What about Arjun Mahendran the VP of this scam

    Premalal Monday, 05 February 2018 09:16 AM

    And those who were referred to as RK, Ravi.K, PM, Hon. PM.?

    Sunil Sunday, 04 February 2018 09:13 AM

    Way to go and much more to come, especially during the coming week and we know what for.

    viraj Sunday, 04 February 2018 09:18 AM

    so those two lost their freedom on the independence day.where are we going to get our freedom from corrupt politicians and the friends?That day will be the real Independence day for us. Till then we are handcuffed as we end up paying for their sins.

    MP Sunday, 04 February 2018 01:36 PM

    Good question and good comment.

    Gune Sunday, 04 February 2018 12:02 PM

    These election stunts are nothing but hilarious.

    Justica USA Sunday, 04 February 2018 12:36 PM

    Issue an Interpol notice on Arjuna Mahendean.He cant be let gojust like that, his actions deprived SL of billions.He MUST be held accountable. Ironic these two lost independence on Independence day..MS must start using the whip, even on RW MR BR GR NR YR SR plus all ROUGES who milked the countriys wealth

    Thamby Ramar Sunday, 04 February 2018 12:36 PM

    Took over two years and lost valuable productive time of the government to take the country forward, perhaps it is better late than never. Now hope the legislature will get back to their work leaving the matter with the legal experts.

    Harsha Sunday, 04 February 2018 12:39 PM

    Where are the handcuffs ? arresting rich criminals are like taking them out for dinner..soon they will be let out on bail. Ha Ha! what a joke this judicial system and the police, and their actions in SL. Recently a constable was punished with jail term for 20 years for a bribe of 2K rupees, that is for just for mere 130 USD. Rich criminals who give kickbacks to politicians , judges and police, walk in to vans..when arrested in suit and tie joke!.. people steal and plunder people's money just walk around ...after 70 Million USD heist..bigger the criminal bigger the respect he or she gets! That is SL!

    Tariq Thowfeek Sunday, 04 February 2018 01:06 PM

    This is a farce. The only thing Sri Lanka lacks is Farce TV. Tomorrow they'll be released on bail.

    Ceylon Sunday, 04 February 2018 01:33 PM

    Arrested to hospital????.

    Minzi Gomes Sunday, 04 February 2018 02:14 PM

    When are they arresting the Royalists R

    ananda Sunday, 04 February 2018 02:59 PM

    Good news. Hope the judiciary will not be influenced to derail the process by enlarging the culprits on bail. Money can do wonders. via DM Android App
