    ANTON Thursday, 07 June 2018 04:05 PM

    EVEN GOD DID NOT TAKE SUCH A LONG TIME TO CREATE THIS WORLD.

    ANTON Thursday, 07 June 2018 04:08 PM

    SO THE POLICEMEN WERE ALLOWED TO DO THEIR DUTIES FOR 15 YEARS AFTER ABDUCTING AND GANG RAPING WOMEN ?

    PAYMENT IN KIND Thursday, 07 June 2018 07:13 PM

    By the standards of this wonder of Asia - it is Yes - and god only knows how many more women were sextually abused as payment in "kind" - the normal mode of transactions adopted by the Police.

    Production belt Friday, 08 June 2018 07:06 AM

    AND in the process God only knows how many they have fathered.

    Dee Thursday, 07 June 2018 04:28 PM

    Than wasting our money for 20 years, better to set them free and get the same thing done to their wives and daughters. Even! And it's better than prison punishment.

    Jaliya Thursday, 07 June 2018 06:23 PM

    Don't really matter … at last justice prevailed. With your philosophy we would be reaching the bottom of the septic tank by year 2020.

    kumar Thursday, 07 June 2018 04:29 PM

    The legal luminaries must have made good money. Its all about the money the lawyers make.

    Ceylon Thursday, 07 June 2018 10:28 PM

    This is not rare case in lanka.this is very common and all.lankans know very well about criminals and their crmes doing using police and military uniforms.its real numbers are in thousands.

    Asantha k Friday, 08 June 2018 06:27 AM

    Please remember the women has to testify open court for many years. Defence lawyers can ask all the thing such as if you have not moved, how did he raped, what sort of feeling you had, sort of questions. Women will suffer whole lot and many gave up. So case may closed. This instance women happen to be very brave. Unfortunately in Sri-Lanka THERE ARE NOT closed court systems for these type of cases. Please do not take as a joke. These really happens in Sri-Lanka.

    Arnold Friday, 08 June 2018 06:29 AM

    Sri Lankan judiciary is most concerned about the sustenance of the lawyers. They drag court cases for several decades so that the lawyers can live off them.

    kamalhot1 Friday, 08 June 2018 08:06 AM

    Dear law makers / lawyers and Judges, Please reconsider the law procedures, 15 years to give a judgement, looks funny, the law is to protect and do fairness to victims, not to give a news after many years to people.

    Seb Friday, 08 June 2018 08:48 PM

    Names these men, shame them. Shame on police.
