When politicians and VIPs are arrested, they are either released on bail or remanded only for one or two days even after committing huge crimes and robberies. But, when an innocent poor man robs a few thousands, he gets 6 months or one year or more jail time and his case is called after a very long time. Is this the justice the judiciary provides in Sri Lanka?
