    what about the monks?

    QUESTION MORE Sunday, 01 October 2017 04:39 PM

    " arrested on charges of obstructing the duties of the Police, acting in an unruly manner and unlawful assembly" - how about damages to property ? AND were they the ones in robes who were the ring leaders ? IF NOT WHY NOT .

    Too little too late. The scenes have been aired around the world and the damage to the image and economy will be long term. No country has ever developed with racism. The govt should be tough on these elements if they are serious about developing Sri Lanka.

    5 more or 10 more remanded will not give the correct picture unless the Monks responsible are also brought to book and put behind bars.
