    Sinhalese people are sick to find it funny when members of this family are sent to jail. The present two leaders equal twiddle dee and twiddle dumb. How can they cast a stone when their crimes are far greater. FCID is a con. Wake up people.

    Nuwan Monday, 11 July 2016 02:41 PM

    It would be another bloody joke if he is going to be given bail for financial misappropriation of 70 million.

    Another drama ! No one in Sri Lanka really knows what's happening in the government and who is running it ! Namal got arrested today but it was predicted in the social media yesterday !!! For sure President or Prime Minister was Un-aware of the arrest. What financial crime ? Just baseless allegations. Sorry to say but there seems to be truth of the very old saying about "Sinhalaya" (SINHALAYA MODAYA KAVUN KANNA YODAYA). Sad ! Sad !! Very Sad !!!

    Hubert Monday, 11 July 2016 03:10 PM

    He would be bailed out by the court as he has lot of money

    pathum Monday, 11 July 2016 03:11 PM

    Please stop stupids. Instead ,do something to develop the country.We like if the the culprits are given punishments. But,this has been a joke for last months. Above comments show what this government has been doing in last months.

    Do Monday, 11 July 2016 04:01 PM

    Please arrest him and punish him. you must treat every one alike. don't favour any one. there also citizens of Sri Lanka. The problem is our country there is no proper law.that is why people are behaving like this.

    ram Monday, 11 July 2016 04:12 PM

    People watch these dramas and will be happy while the country economy goes down day by day. All this gov can do is show these dramas as they have failed in every aspect. When are they going to arrest the people involved in the Central Bank incident. The strangest thing is websites reported that Namal is going to be arrested today 2-3 days back. That says lot about the law and order today.

    ilyas Monday, 11 July 2016 04:30 PM

    Political hypocrisy and innocence of citizens.
