Businessman and Sri Lanka Labour Party Leader A.S.P. Liyanage said today he would refill the swimming pool at his Peacock Mansion with sea sand after the police failed to find any valuable items.

He said the Colombo Magistrate was scheduled to inspect the pool on February 5.

“Thereafter I will refill the pool with sand because I believe that filling the pool with sand instead of water will bring good luck,” Mr. Liyanage said. (Darshana Sanjeewa)

    better check the pool again, after he re fills it. This would be the most safest place on earth to hide gold after inspection

    Like for pyramids check using xray equipment to see whether there are items below the cement floor of the pool. May yield results

    Their will be more luck to this country if you and your master can both get into the pool before the sand is dumped inside.

    This was for advertisement only. Police should have ignored this obvious ploy done for publicity.
