    What's wrong with it

    If it is not stolen property and they can show ownership there is nothing wrong

    Exactly what's wrong with that?? In US and other countries people are encouraged to excavate and explore the hidden and buried treasures but here the arrest warrant is always ready for the CRIME that's not at all a crime.

    What’s the crime here ? Was it an archeological item or not? Useless journalism. Half a story reported

    Attempt to sell at Rs.6 billion seems very unlikely as for such high values, no one just says how much ? OK I will buy.

    you should have mentioned that one of the arrested is a buddhist monk....why hide it ?

    what a load of bunkum. You can not do business in Sri Lanka now. Only the political elite and their cronies can.
