    Now thats a change in events. Grinding slow but sure? Surprised that law has finally caught up with those who plundered the country.

    As usual all his sicknesses will surface and he will end up in the luxurious prison hospital. This was the man who two days ago was so hale and hearty and looked in the pink of health.

    He has been transferred to prison hospital. Is this the Yaha palanaya is this the equality of law to every Sri Lankan. We are so disappointed. Duminda released on bail wele suda story all has been forgotten. No any top corrupters has been arrested on the available clear cut evidence. Feel sorry for Sri Lanka this will never end ( protection of corruption)

    An Open Letter to President Maithripala Sirisena, Mr. Ranil Wickremasinghe and Former-President Chandrika Bandaranaike Kumaratunga By ‘The Collective of Concerned Citizens and Academics’, 14 April 2015(1) Immensely Positive Change on 8 January 2015We congratulate you two Gentlemen and Lady for bringing about the change of 8 January 2015. You were supported by others such as Mr. Wijedasa Rajapakse, Dr. Rajitha Senaratne and others far too numerous to mention. We too worked behind the scenes to the best of our ability. We of the ‘Collective of Concerned Citizens and Academics’ are heartened by the possibility of a wholesale change in Sri Lanka’s political culture. We support the formation of the Yahapalana ‘National Government’ before the next General Elections. We understand the political imperatives that compelled you to bring SLFP parliamentarians into the new Cabinet. We support the creation of a National Government after the next General Elections as well.

    All are constitutionally guaranteed equality before the law but some are more equal than the rest of the country.
