    All these years the Yahapalana Government could't locate or arrest him.

    This is a fix. He will be bailed and case will get postponed every time it is called. Or a weak case will be filed and he will be out scot free. Johnston case, Hyatt case against Gamini Senarath- Best examples- Cases dismissed as poorly filed cases. So the entire MIG cases will dissappear for ever. Fantastic strategy. Just to show the President is impartial and abiding by the law. Why not arrest Ranil, Ravi, Cabral on Bond scam forensic audit?

    His cousin will exonerate him for sure for lack of evidence. SL justice served for history books.
