    Dear who ever, the man in the picture is well up and about I don’t understand why cops cannot find him, he was very much in the flesh last Saturday at Solis with women. Very noticeable as he was loud and throwing money about. Our table even complained and no action was taken.

    A fool and his money are soon parted. Who is the fool who just gives money like that over the counter unless for an illegal activity - he must be having another Rs400 million with him.

    sathees Wednesday, 04 April 2018 03:52 PM

    Did he ask the police before giving the money? Any legal agreement?
