    One Shot - RANJAN, Can you came out with a response???This is a dam shame for the state of the country.

    Jayantha Thursday, 07 December 2017 04:35 PM

    The cost for investigation by official of bribery commission and court cost could be more than Rs 500,000. This fine is a joke.

    Labby Thursday, 07 December 2017 04:38 PM

    are you kidding me..

    gamunu Thursday, 07 December 2017 04:39 PM

    What a joke!. Just a pittance for a man who made millions under the previous regime. Now we will never know how he amassed his loot. Judgement is passed. If a poor man was caught stealing a coconut the fine will exceed Rs.1000.00

    OBSERVER Thursday, 07 December 2017 04:47 PM

    SRI LANKA IS ABSOLUTELY THE MIRACLE IN THE WORLD.YOU EARN BILLIONS BY FRAUDS AND PAY ONE THOUSAND.

    voter Thursday, 07 December 2017 04:54 PM

    Hahaha. Can't stop myself laughing after reading the amount of the fine. What Ranjan said about our judiciary has been confirmed by this judgement.

    Ali Hu Kai Thursday, 07 December 2017 04:56 PM

    Pittance!

    konugoda Palanaya Thursday, 07 December 2017 05:39 PM

    Mason Thursday, 07 December 2017 05:51 PM

    This is absurd. The expenses in this connection would have exceeded Rs.1000/-. Another Judicial Joke !!

    sena Thursday, 07 December 2017 05:55 PM

    It's not just a fine. It is an encouraging fine.

    Azmath Buhar Thursday, 07 December 2017 06:23 PM

    Johan Thursday, 07 December 2017 06:49 PM

    Sajin vaas knew that he will be fined only 1000 rupees

    Park Thursday, 07 December 2017 06:54 PM

    What a joke, what has happened to the Judiciary in Sri Lanka? This is another reason why SL will not be able to block the request of Foreign Judges by UN.

    mani maama Thursday, 07 December 2017 06:56 PM

    Need to introduce a system similar to some countries, where penalty payments calculated according to the earning and assets own by a culprit. Otherwise, if it is Rs 100 for billions of theft wouldn't surprise.It would better even to include court and other charges to the fine. Lesser the penalties more chance for the repeated offence.

    Nostradamus Thursday, 07 December 2017 08:15 PM

    Sena is correct....Its an encouraging fine. Banana Republic at its best via DM Android App

    Ben Thursday, 07 December 2017 08:19 PM

    Sorry guys , It is a mistake must be 1000 million,However the guy is now a convicted criminal. So he cannot take up any state appointmwents and when filling up forms for Visas he will have to say yes convicted and charged, amount is irelevent.

    Lawry Thursday, 07 December 2017 08:38 PM

    Did the judge become richer? Alternately would it not be right for Vas to file a case for tarnishing his image? The fake media said he was real bad nut. Maybe the judge knew better.
