Senior Minister Athauda Seneviratne who was accused of damaging praivate property was released on personal bail of 1 million rupees after he surrendered himself to the Warakapola Magistrates court this morning.

The Minister was ordered to be present at the Warakapola Police every Sunday.  17 persons including two MSD officers and a Pradeshiya Sabha member  are suspected to have been involved in the incident. The magistrate ordered all of them to be present at the court for the next hearing on the 20th of July, our reporter said. (News and pix by Rohan Kumara-Kegalle)

Of course, Ministers and MPs have a different set of laws, because they are Law Makers!

How come Police is giving guard to perpetrators of crime (found guilty by court) instead of jailing them and stripping their powers?

Athauda, KOTA-UDA! Can he remain in the Cabinet? He should be dismissed from the Cabinet. Follow the Pakistani example!

The all important fact is that even the most senior Minister is arrested .. this is great in comparison to all other Asian countries.. nothing does under the carpet.

We should appreciate the good things and not view all news items through political spectacles.

What astonishes me is his stupid followers, and we keep asking what is wrong with Sri Lanka? It is obvious to everyone that its the 'people' of the country that are responsible for all the wrong things happening here.
