    These arrests would not have happened during the previous regime.

    Absolutely true, in fact the bus driver would be missing by now.

    These arrests happened because there was video evidence and were circulated already. However; they will come out in bail easily as we have a special/lenient law for politicos and their henchmen

    It's not a 9mm pistol. It's a 38 or similar revolver. A sidearm probably issued to a cop.

    Now MR and JO Co.will visit Kasun and wife in the remand cell and promise to provide the best lawyer for them.

    Two questions that may hinge on my ignorance - 1) are they given the special treatment in remand prison and, are they put together. If this the case then might as well release them.

    Enough for once the police had acted instead of being a silent onlooker awaiting orders from the top!!!

    Well, these two thugs had a license on their pistol?Revoke their post after the verdict. (Hoping good one).The witness should be protected.

    How these people become PC's because we elect them. It's not entirely our fault , it's the party who let them represent them is also in fault. Will the party sack home?
