    How can he make such a comment insulting the legal system. Well he can seek remedy through the justice system.. No one should be allowed to make such wild allegation and get away with it. This trend would be harmful to our legal and justice systems.

    Why media could not report until now that Lasantha's vehicle was driven by a driver at the time he was attacked and murdered, and the driver was abducted?
