'Nishantha Malli's' fate due to wrong company: Arjuna

“If Nishantha Malli was in the company of good guys, he (Nishantha) would not have to face to such a scenario. The law should be equal to everyone.

No interferences from me. However, I will be with my Malli,” Ports and Shipping Minister Arjuna Ranatunga yesterday said referring to the arrest of his younger brother Nishantha Ranatunga over the CSN case.

The minister made this comment to the media after lodging a complaint with the Human Rights Commission on the recently concluded Sri Lanka Cricket election.

He said the Director General of Sports had violated several laws related to the cricket and the Sports ministry should take the responsibility in this regard. (Jayantha Samarakoon)

    Aiya laments that malli kept bad company. It is a universal saying that you are judged by the company you keep. The one judged to be BAD was good enough to be appointed as Ports Authority Chairman by him. Can he say anything about it?

    He is an adult. Not a child. He and he alone is responsible for his fate. He is widely regarded as a rascal, a wheeler-wheeler - dealer, a turn-turn-court... who has not positive values in his system. Perhaps the only thing that kept him out of prison until now was the company he kept. Arjuna will do well to distance himself from this guy... because he is bad company.

    shame shame dont open your mouth. Your credibility in the country was lost with the appointing your bro to your ministry.You never tried to correct Nishantha when he was robbing the cricket board instead you tried to protect him.
