Prison Hospital, Paying Ward then Home. Excellent justice system in Sri Lanka for a person who has swindled the country.

All those who were arrested since 2015 January, all are out on bail. Only one matter proceeded to a hearing and that is where two top Government officials were involved. All the politicos are free. Weerawansa case was an open and shut case but it is still going on. This is Sri Lanka

The 2.5 Million Rupees and the 50 Million is nothing for these goons.

Nice move, the Democracy of brotherhood. He was brought down, kept in prison for few days, then sent to General Hospital and gate was opened to go home as a free bird. Nice plan, many more culprits to come out soon. Citizens are not idiots, keep that in mind.

He should be given a responsible post equivalent to the post of minister to handle finance matters during this crucial times. The Govt.must not forget that he was serving as a diplomat for Sri Lanka.

That was on the books. However in Sri Lanka we do not punish wrong doers, we chant Pirith to them

Always, everything is a temporary cover up to win elections and the masses always are taken on a ride. Shame... It proves that greater the crime by powerful and influential people, you are either pardoned or granted bail. These encourages people to commit big crimes. What a state of affairs.
