Dear Muniyandi Mahalingam,

You have robbed little money & it may be to feed your children..
That's why you have to be arrested.
So sorry gentleman. Try to do a big robbery with a politician.
Wish you all the best.

What about those who rob the Country to bankruptcy? Sorry I forgot that they have immunity. This is lawless, corrupt “Banana Republic” (former democratic Sri Lanka).

Heard that the small fish used to live in America for 33 years and just come back either on holiday or to stay. Small or not, you don't steal and you don't steal from a temple.
