    The right fish is caught now, next the Namal Mora should go behind bars, well done CID.

    Gihan Perera Tuesday, 10 October 2017 11:08 AM

    Good news.... Namal baby now you are in great trouble, feel sorry putha, why did you behave like your nasty ruthless father and looted in billions?

    Tiny Ruthra Tuesday, 10 October 2017 08:56 AM

    Good job by the CID and the BIA staff. Now the 2nd step - Namal should be arrested.

    Palitha Wickramaratne Tuesday, 10 October 2017 08:59 AM

    Small rat is caught now the big rat (Namal) should go in to the cage.

    BuffaloaCitizen Tuesday, 10 October 2017 09:10 AM

    Not only did the Rajapakse's have hench-aiya's, they also had hench-nangi's too.

    Dhammika Tuesday, 10 October 2017 09:12 AM

    Just accusing and arresting all roundabouts CATCH the main culprit ! .

    rew Tuesday, 10 October 2017 01:05 PM

    Citizen Tuesday, 10 October 2017 10:16 AM

    Namal's girl/boy/tea boy/laundryman/doctor/driver etc. everyone will arrest but Namal baba going around,

    Hiran Shanaka Tuesday, 10 October 2017 10:20 AM

    Hope this could shed some light and arrest the big talking thief soon

    Jagath Leanage Tuesday, 10 October 2017 10:24 AM

    Nothing to worry . In evening she will be suddenly sick and will be transferred to PRISON HOSPITAL .

    mindscape Tuesday, 10 October 2017 10:36 AM

    Obvious cover up for Shalila Moonasinghe arrest due to actual evidence. This guy was the chairman for current presidents party which the UNP, JVP and TNA supported. I almost feel sorry for government supporters these days.

    alex Tuesday, 10 October 2017 02:46 PM

    that is yahpalayana, even the party chief is arrested if found guilty unlike the MR days no white vans

    Arnold Tuesday, 10 October 2017 10:39 AM

    How come Namal still is taking outdoor baths with our tax money??

    max Tuesday, 10 October 2017 10:49 AM

    Very good. Will the same happen to yahapalana money laundering cases as well?

    Lahiru Tuesday, 10 October 2017 12:16 PM

    Hey Max actually either Namal or Ravi karunanayaka/(Ranil) will not be punished. This is just sri lankan politics dear

    shanthapriya Tuesday, 10 October 2017 11:55 AM

    Looking at all the comments what do we feel ? where we have been living? And with whom we have been living over the past years ? Anger of the people towards each other,politically divided strongly? never marching forward as a nation. Leading to nowhere

    malij Tuesday, 10 October 2017 12:01 PM

    Don't be so optimistic. Why do you think the lady decided to come back to Sri Lanka all of a sudden? To face the music? After all I would not be surprised if they had destroyed all the evidence against the lady by now, like Mrs. Weerawansa's files that had got disappeared even from the court custody or like Thajudeen's body parts that had gone missing. Or even like the missing log book pages of the Presidential Secretariat on the day he was killed. The list goes on.

    Hema Tuesday, 10 October 2017 12:30 PM

    All jobless jokers write things. But politics is different. No one knows.

    BuffaloaCitizen Tuesday, 10 October 2017 12:30 PM

    Despite being under "arrest", I like the way she confidently holds onto that flask cup, proof that normal citizens like you

    CITIZEN Tuesday, 10 October 2017 12:44 PM

    Is she being arrested or she is "courted"??? Special treatment, eh!!!

    Mason Tuesday, 10 October 2017 01:02 PM

    Now that they have in custody the long awaited witness, will the case be fast tracked, or will it proceed in the usual lethargic style.During the elections the entire MR family and his stooges were painted in DEEP BLACK, CORRUPT TO THE CORE, HAVE AMASSED UNPRECEDENTED WEALTH, but regret up to now no one has been punished. Is this justice "Good Governance" style.

    Dhammika Tuesday, 10 October 2017 01:33 PM

    CAUGHT , ARRESTED , ( TODAYS NEWS ) , BAILES OUT AND RELEASED ( TOMMARROWS NEWS ) , HOSPITALISED DUE TO HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE ( DAY AFTER TOMMARROWS NEWS ) . I CANT REMEMBER ANYTHING ( NEXT WEEK NEWS ) . Thats the name and game of the drama...

    ali Tuesday, 10 October 2017 02:26 PM

    Only in the Wonder of Asia, culprits arrested for corruption walk with pride and step into Police jeeps like getting into private jets for a Disney tour

    pradeep Tuesday, 10 October 2017 02:49 PM

    next the JO will hold a protest asking her to be released (won't be surprised if the GMOA also joins the protest)

    CITIZEN Wednesday, 11 October 2017 04:52 PM

    What was the indecent haste to arrest her if her inquiry is to be fixed after 5 months? Big show by arresting her at the Airport and eventually let her free! The money laundering case is going on but her inquiry is postponed for nearly 5 months!! Miracle of Asia!!!
