    Traitor from hills should be taught a lesson. Forging a letter by the most trusted person to Ranil W. for personal gains is a cardinal betrayal.

    I believe Tissa is setting a new record of longest jailed MP by current government!

    Bail has been granted for worse offenders and mega crimes, comparatively this is a minor offense and he should have been granted bail.

    When you compare it with the billions swindled during the past regime and in the current CB Bond Scam Tissa's offense appears to be minor.

    Correction- He is no longer an MP.

    Gamaya Friday, 04 November 2016 01:52 PM

    This letter arrived in the post and any one could have forged the signatures. But Tissa being a politician had an obligation to check everything before going public.The greed of the man is displayed in his going public without checking .Serves him right .
