Easy come and easy go. This is drama. Next to no time he will obtain bail and be out. If simple Simon like me committed an offence towards public property, I will be left to rot inside the Welikada jail for years without ability to get bail. This country has different sets of rules categorized for the following sectors...Opp. Politicians; Governing Politicians; Political hench-aiyas; Buddhist Clergy Thug class; Buddhist clergy normal so on and so forth.
