    Now, make use this opportunity to tell Singapore counterpart to extradite Arjuna Mahen and to cancel FTA with Singapore. IF you return without doing this, then you too are answerable.

    patriot Wednesday, 23 January 2019 12:06 PM

    You should have declined the state visit due to SLFTA issues and AM evading arrest.

    channa Wednesday, 23 January 2019 12:07 PM

    Lalindra Perera Wednesday, 23 January 2019 03:07 PM

    10 member delegation at tax payers expense? What is the agenda? Will he take up the free trade deal and the warrant issue on Singapore citizen former governor of the central bank evading arrest oris it a free trip/ho;iday? What is the press and society doing about this?

    Geminu Wednesday, 23 January 2019 03:10 PM

    What’s wrong with Sirisena? Roaming around the world with several of his stooges for no useful purpose.

    His time is short so he should make the maximum visits abroad where he will never ever be able to visit again.
