    This happened in 2014. CWG is over. Our 'impartial' judiciary can at least now drive on the fast lane to see the finish fast.

    The President sang his favourite song-song of eternity again today, 'It is the duty of my govt.to catch all the thieves, murderers etc of the past and present day, and we are going to do it'.Now start from Cabral again and show us that you keep to your word at least this time.

    Late is better than never. What about the commission he earned by investing in Greek Bonds when Greece as a country was ailing. I am sure FCID is smart to locate that money. That's huge running into millions of USD. FCID please backtrack the transaction then you can find to which account the commission was paid.

    Good news that these sycophants of the earlier regime are investigated.

    At last something expected and what is over due has taken in to account. We had seen this man was dancing with the son of maha raja and shenuska of the foreign ministry which wasted millions and millions of money belonged to the people of this poor country. Hope if the case is started it will go on without any postponement.
