    Everyone gets sick when remanded. Prison doctors determine how sick they are and not theyre private doctors. Can we officially change the name of our country to Banana Republic via DM Android App

    Millions go missing in RADA soon after the presidential elections. The LTTE financier Emil Kanthan also involved. Hope people are smart enough to put two and two together.

    When will you get on to the top family members, who were responsible for 99% of corruptions and crimes in the country. Why are we getting news that legal proceedings on LW, Prageeth, Thajudeen is put to aside due to the pressure from the very top.

    What is strange is that only those who have defrauded govt funds have health problems to evade remand or go abroad for medical treatment - sick souls indeed.
