    The CID was conducting idiotic style of investigation and wasted time,instead of arresting and charging Rajapaksas.

    Now It is clear in which direction Sri Lanka is being headed into. All Sri Lankans should clearly get together to revert back this trend and dawn of a dark era, during the next General Election and Presidential Elections.
