    While the Tamils of the 1977 and 1983 riots are still waiting for at least one Sinhalese killer and looter to be identified and be sentenced.

    Justice after 16 years and that for an attempt on the life of the President. No wonder that people have lost confidence in the judiciary.

    Justice in 16years for Slightly injured Ex-President but no justice for more than 50years for Minority Tamils! Same old Judiciary in Srilanka!
