    So the policemen at H'tota were right that he escaped. Now what - will the policement get un-interdicted.

    He should be dealt with severely for taking the whole country for a ride

    Everybody knew where he was hiding except the Police. Good work Police and the interdicted and transferred officers can restart their life.

    In fairness - a non police authority (like human rights) should record the statement from the boy, on the reasons why he fled from the Police Station .-- before he is influenced . Remember the other individual who was arrested (with the boy) is now recuperating in hospital.

    Should put him behind bars for couple of months. Otherwise it is not fair by the Police who took all the flak. It would be interesting to see what the President of the student union (Anthare) who was quick to jump into conclusions calling for a press interview accusing Police, has to say now.
