    2 laws one country

    My personnel view no bail out for these type of tragedy and also like in the middle east blood money of nothing less than minimum 100 lakhs compensated.

    Your personal view is irrelevant, it is the law that will prevail at the end of the day. It’s called an accident for a reason, because it was one!!! Get your facts right and do some research before you comment because this comment right here shows how illiterate you are.

    We knew this. One law for the rich, one law for the famous surnames and another law for the poor and yet another law for the dangerous criminals who get presidential pardons. No wander the country has gone to dogs.

    Why was this scumbag released on bail. Is his father a well known politician and his late Grand Father was a Minister.

    He is a murderer. PERIOD!! Father Ashan Ratwatte is well connected. Hence the junior is out on bail. Will it be the same for anyone with a different family name. Historically they are known for... Leave it for your guess...

    Sorry that Mr. Ratwatte had to get blood on his hands. Normally you guys hire someone isn't it...

    This is an accident not something done intentionally. The issue is drink driving, what as a country are we doing to stop it and educate the masses. Should do more random breath testing and education.
