    Why should the army give permission to question the suspects? The suspects should be arrested immediately and brought to justice. It is also import to get to the bottom of this sage and find who the handler was.

    BBB is right. Rule of law must be applied and all should be equal before the law. As the accused persons are coming from those who are the guardians of law, these inquiries must be swift and must be seen as justice being done.

    The era of State terror perpetrated on innocents under the Rajapakse regime needs to be thoroughly probed. For the sake of humanity, every person involved irrelevant to whether they were holding the highest position of governance should be named and shamed.

    Then why is this "swiftness" not their when the victim is Tamil?

    Sometime back one person was saying Eknaligoda is living abroad and that he had met him. This person too should be questioned whether he actually met him or what is the motive for the fabricated story.

    Magistrates beware ! ! You need to get "pernission" from this man "in army headquarters" , if the need arises to remand them.

    Sections of the army were above the rule of law during the former regime. Remnants seem to remain !

    Now only I know that our army personnel are above the law. If army and politicians are above the law, how can we expect law and order?

    Mr President - please inform "Army Headquarters to give a statement to the CID " why their permission is required. If this attitude is not nipped in the bud, it could lead to many ramifications.

    All uniformed men and women from army navy and air force are under two LAWS. One is respective ARMY AIR FORCE and NAVY ACT plus COMMON LAWS prevalent in SRI LANKA. NO ONE IS ABOVE THE LAW.THAT BULL SHIT TIME IS GONE FOR GOOD.GOD BLESS MY COUNTRY.LONG LIVE MR.PRESIDENT.
