    But why former logga MR said to media then that he saved her from not being arrested. Had the Police investigated well, then she would not have been arrested?

    This whole thing is fishy...from where did so many forged notes come from? Isn't this magistrate and police not investigating that? If the origin of the fake notes was Mr. Perera, then he should be firmly behind bars for at least 5 years instead of suspended sentences.
