    Money Laundering

    I wonder how many of you commenting on the good works of Gota and MR actually watched the video. This little mini Amin actually said that even Hitler did not commit such crimes as the present government. Is this former 7 Eleven worker even aware of the atrocities committed by Hitler. Another idiot just spewing rhetoric for the benefit of the ignorant masses.

    Other useless billion rupee projects like Matala airport, convention center should be investigated. What was the real purpose behind these white elephants. They are obviously not to serve Sri Lankans.

    Next time it will be Former President Rajapaksa, Shiranthi Rajapaksa, Namal Rajapaksa, former Minister Basil Rajapaksa and former defence secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksas turn one at a time. Gradually up the ladder of deceit corruption and amassing ill gotten wealth.

    Dear learned bloggers. All your individual ideas are respected. Can one of you clearly highlight the change against which he was arrested. via DM Android App

    You will get your turn to change your mind in good time.

    Sofia Sunday, 31 January 2016 11:02 AM

    So you say they did not do these acts accused of by the Police. Ha Ha.

    Andrew Pitugala Sunday, 31 January 2016 11:45 AM

    He did not fight against LTTE. He was always in the most safest place.

    Andrew Pitugala Sunday, 31 January 2016 11:48 AM

    Remanding and spending time in the prison hospital and then released on bail amounts to nothing. The cases ,must be proved in court and conviction must follow.

    Ryan Sunday, 31 January 2016 12:10 PM

    We have 4-5 political prisoners now, the allegations are nowhere to arrest Yoshitha or anybody

    I feel very sorry for this young man. The kitchen crowd inclusive of Modawansa and big mouthed Udaya and five foot took him in the wrong direction for their personal gain. via DM Android App

    who thought the father will lose power?

    Chamil Monday, 01 February 2016 09:29 AM

    I think MR .Gota also should be imprisoned for finishing the war and for destroying LTTE. Very bad, no?
