    Cobra Saturday, 22 June 2013 01:17 AM

    So the AG waits till they become ex MP's to sue them for non payments of rent etc!!!

    chams Saturday, 22 June 2013 07:15 AM

    I thought AG's duty is discharging the ones to be convicted only?

    Minister Saturday, 22 June 2013 07:23 AM

    Ooh. Only Ex's? What about the current's? Are they paying the exact bill?

    CROW Saturday, 22 June 2013 07:28 AM

    THEY CAN SUBMIT MEDICAL CERTIFICATES OF " SELECTIVE AMNESIA"

    There would be some more, even amongst current ones.

    Fair N Square Saturday, 22 June 2013 02:50 AM

    Interestingly the pack is led by a THERO... So this is how one can live within SLR 7500.00 as per Bandula Gunawarda..

    Oh I also see Mahipala Herath.. how interesting to note these are the " Peoples Representatives" I

    Fair N Square Saturday, 22 June 2013 02:54 AM

    Are these MP considered outsiders? or have they ruffled the feathers of the ruling party...? No matter what, they all need to be stripped of their perks and made to pay the charges ANY citizen would pay. NO concessions what so ever.

    Tom Cruse Jr Saturday, 22 June 2013 08:33 AM

    AG Another page boy........Like the Army commander.....yes Sir yes Sir 3 bags full..........A wonder of the world.

    Ratavasiya Friday, 21 June 2013 06:25 PM

    Why sudden implementation of the law, probably to deceive the public as the elections are round the corner!

    Crow Saturday, 22 June 2013 03:06 AM

    Please check Presents MPs Bill.

    fazli Saturday, 22 June 2013 08:37 AM

    why not have a check on the present MPs also. Or will you wait till they too become 'former MP's'

    Tom Cruse Jr Saturday, 22 June 2013 03:16 AM

    Nodrog Saturday, 22 June 2013 03:45 AM

    As 'servants' of the people they think they're entitled to everything free.

    s.m.Hafeel Saturday, 22 June 2013 03:48 PM

    Can you call these men 'servants of the people' ?

    IBNUABOO Saturday, 22 June 2013 03:48 PM

    there must be any mysterious for this sudden unpresedented action against these former parliamentarians

    Nodrog Saturday, 22 June 2013 05:11 AM

    This is selective implementation of the law. Bigger crimes of squandering and wastage go unpunished.

    Naz Saturday, 22 June 2013 05:25 AM

    What about rest of ministers.Okama horu..

    Amila. G Saturday, 22 June 2013 05:38 AM

    This the difference between when in power and not in power.

    Ling Saturday, 22 June 2013 05:51 AM

    Maybe they suffered from Duminda syndrome, "Sorry, I cannot remember".

    Ranjo Friday, 21 June 2013 11:56 PM

    Do MPs settle bills anywhere in Sri Lanka?
