    Even he hides in the Hospital, his life is under threat - better surrender to the Police confessing all the sins he committed against Muslims.

    Typical Sri Lankan mentality. When the arrest warrant is issued they all go to hospital. Are we treating other criminals the way we are treating VIPs. Few examples are Basil, Wimal etc.

    He should be given six months to leave hospital. During which period his attorney should appear in court every FRiday with all medical records plus a medical certificate detailing G's ailment. (The court to decide to get second opinion or not) Once G fully recovers he can leave hospital only on a working day morning, and he has to appear in court on that date. In the event the medical certificate states he needs rest , he should be directed to the IDH for rest and recuperation until he is able to appear in court the moment he is pronounced , (yes ! ) he is fit and fighting !

    Sri Lanka is a not a Sinhala Buddhist country, it is just a country. The country cant talk to deny your racial clam, but it has shown in action that the country doesn't like you people, These natural disasters are the signs.
