    Unlike ordinary citizens politicos are entitled to pension rights and other perks, etc. on their retirement. So they are not losers.

    Dammika Sunday, 11 March 2012 03:18 AM

    All ruling party members talk big behind doors ... they this illegal since specially Duminda has a warrant .... still they vote to approve in parliament. Disaster ... voters who voted them in can only sit and think back "what the hell did we do by voting these crooks in to the parliament represent us" ......................well it's too late

    Samosa Friday, 09 March 2012 09:35 AM

    That's not a big loss for the country... Their brains don't add any values to our motherland... But it is a big lost for the government as less people to shout in the parliament...

    SALIYA WICKREMASURIY Friday, 09 March 2012 09:28 AM

    Is Duminda back in Singapore from Australia? I wonder wether Keheliya and Duminda are in the same ward in whatever the Australian hospital there are in.

    steve Friday, 09 March 2012 09:29 AM

    People's wish is not get well soon or late, Both are not suitable for the well being of the society. Both have node bad to the country.

    Jayasiri Friday, 09 March 2012 09:47 AM

    In Kada Dumitnda case, the government knows exactly what the accountability means. Perhaps UNHRC is correct.

    Gamini Udagepola Friday, 09 March 2012 09:17 AM

    Two different ways of Elected Members could get sick in modern SL society.
    Unfortunately, both seem BAD EXAMPLES. Feel sorry for them though.

    Chandra Friday, 09 March 2012 09:52 AM

    Don't worry, Gods will lookafter them along with giving appropreate treatment in time.

    Mahinda Friday, 09 March 2012 10:47 AM

    Bring them back to Sri Lanka and admit them to the General Hospital for treatment. The treatment is excellent. I don't understand why they have t go overseas when our medical services are much better. Please explain.
