Joint Opposition MP Namal Rajapaksa arrived at the Hambantota Police today after he was summoned over the protest which was held in Hambantota, MP D. V. Chanaka said.

The protest was held last Friday against the leasing out of Mattala International Airport to India. During the protest, 18 people were arrested by the police on charges of behaving in an unruly manner.

MP Chanaka told Daily Mirror that police had asked MP Prasanna Ranaweera and himself to report to the police tomorrow morning.

    I plead the Police to take appropriate action against Namal and he has to be punished severely for disregarding the court order.

    Samson Subasinghe Monday, 09 October 2017 11:34 AM

    For your 3rd class behavior along with rowdies, Namal should be arrested and kept behind bars.

    Ratnapala Keerthisinghe Monday, 09 October 2017 11:35 AM

    If you are a decent Lawyer, you should not get involved with thugs and culprits Namal. Behave yourself.. chee...chee..chee..

    To be decent or indecent he should be a lawyer in the first place.

    johan Monday, 09 October 2017 11:37 AM

    All protesters should be arrested.There is no peaceful protest or unruly protest ,after court verdict banning all sort of protests.

    P. Janaka Perera Monday, 09 October 2017 11:39 AM

    For the notice of the Police Officers of Hambantota Police Station, rear side of the Air-port Namal distributed Liquor and bites, even now you could see so many empty bottles thrown here and there.

    This happens in all events where they have to use public for their activities. This public are henchmen of politicians.

    R.M. Srilal Fernando Monday, 09 October 2017 01:41 PM

    Yes Namal had organized 70 crates of Gal Arrack, this is true.

    R.M. Kusal Palitha Monday, 09 October 2017 01:45 PM

    Not only that Namal had arranged a gala liquor party with all JO MP's in a leading hotel in Hambantota and there he had ordered 20 Red Label Whisky bottles.

    M. Peter Zilva Monday, 09 October 2017 01:47 PM

    Yes, I myself visited the scene the following day and saw so many empty arrack bottles thrown over there.

    Tikiri Suda Monday, 09 October 2017 11:40 AM

    Police should arrest Namal and its the right time to trap the Jo rotters.

    BuffaloaCitizen Monday, 09 October 2017 11:40 AM

    These days he has to find something to keep him busy. During his fathers time, he was too busy making deals out of public money, including Daisy Archies menik pottaniya.

    Dhammika Monday, 09 October 2017 03:54 PM

    Since RW is afraid to put Namal behind bars now he is in front of BARS buying liquior for his supporters.

    Lord Wolfstein Monday, 09 October 2017 03:56 PM

    Introduce corporal punishment for these crimes. The TV stations should air the corporal punishment given to Namal in front of the court in Hambantota.
