    I don't care about how much money is given by the bankrupt govt (to win votes) to the Victims. Their losses are immeasurable. As Cardinal said I am (Even as a Buddhist) interested in Justice. Has Justice been served? Three months on no one has been brought to the court of law apart from mere political dramas.
