    Well done Jonny and the UNP.

    Who's at fault?

    Samson Tuesday, 29 January 2019 12:10 PM

    We know this govt is not capable of finding fault with anyone even if they are at fault.

    SG Tuesday, 29 January 2019 12:13 PM

    What a joke of a country we live in

    RP Tuesday, 29 January 2019 03:28 PM

    If assets declaration is not filed Jhonny had to prove that it was filed. I am at a loss to see how he got out.

    SWofia Tuesday, 29 January 2019 04:16 PM

    Surely either he had filed them or not. If not guilty why was he charged ? SL Law works in mysterious ways. NO wonder our corruption index at 89.

    SureshP Tuesday, 29 January 2019 05:47 PM

    This heading is very misleading. People commenting also haven't read the article. He was charged for years 2010 to 2014. He was acquitted for 2010 only.

    SG Wednesday, 30 January 2019 08:34 AM

    You're a smart man Suresh! Looks like we all missed it

    Our finance minister under MR influenced future government. Jayawewa

    Maybe he promised to change to UNP in a deal.

    Nimal Tuesday, 29 January 2019 08:09 PM

    Another remarkable Yahapaalana achievement. Glad we voted for it!

    Buruwa Wednesday, 30 January 2019 02:54 AM

    Rather than wasting public money on court cases such this why do not AG first ask a copy of Assets Declaration and earnings for these years and check is it worthwhile to go for courts.

    Alex Wednesday, 30 January 2019 07:31 AM

    Another dog unleashed.

    Nihal Wednesday, 30 January 2019 08:01 AM

    This is an impetus for other political bigwigs also not to declare their assets and liabilities and get out of the net in this same manner.
