    I think murders are allowed in srilanka . just after murdering somebody the person just go through the legal system and ultimately who will be released . now somebody tries to change death sentence to life sentence. this is to safe somebody. in near future. Everything is politicized. indipenden legal system is supporting some politicians in ruling party indipendenly . this is the truth!

    That medical guy did not get arrested. Next one out will be former Snr DIG. God bless our mother Lanka.

    Covering up for a homicide is a heinous crime no worse than the murder itself.

    By warning the OIC, "to abstain from interfering with the prosecution witnesses or with the investigations" the Judge was Really Reminding him what he could do!

    He should have been given bail before. It is unreasonable to keep them in remand for such a long time with out charges.

    If judge knew this guy can influence witnesses and influence investigations, why did he give bail? Once a witness or two disappear everything will fall into place?
