He said that Gammanpila had stated on January 9, while UNP Parliamentarian Hirunika Premachandra was produced in court, the Wellampitiya Police had diverted from the usual procedure and protocol to release Hirunika on bail.

Keselwatte Police in the motion stated that they had received a complaint that Gammanpila had alleged that the Registrar of the Court had waited in her office till Hirunika was produced in court in order to release her on bail.

    He is having under world connection.. Money for him is no problem.. Get him arrested.

    Mason Thursday, 14 January 2016 11:05 AM

    Another loose mouth, not to be taken seriously. Time spent in the cooler will do him good, hope he is taken in.

    lkboy Thursday, 14 January 2016 11:32 AM

    Aiyo Gommanpila!

    fair citizen Sunday, 28 February 2016 09:48 AM

    Usually Gammanpila does not make baseless statements. We will see in due course the result.

    Gobba Thursday, 14 January 2016 11:48 AM

    How is Gammanpila able to have such a high end luxury vehicle when he had to collect 100/= from citizens to stand for polls ? Another case for the FCID.

    BanisMama Thursday, 14 January 2016 08:52 AM

    This man needs to be show that he cannot utter what ever comes to his mouth. We were taught these ethics in primary school and the Sunday School. Never too late. Fix him.

    Fassey Thursday, 14 January 2016 09:01 AM

    Gammanpilla kata dee nasee!! He is just jobless.

    BuffaloaCitizen Thursday, 14 January 2016 09:05 AM

    Whatever these accusations maybe, the citizens of this whole country would want to know how the ninth suspect Ms. Hirunika in a case of blatant kidnapping and abduction using her staff members and her own vehicle was never remanded and received bail within few hours of appearing in court? This case smells and the judiciary and police are the main farts. Sorry for being blatant.

    Kiris Baba Amaray Thursday, 14 January 2016 09:41 AM

    Good move Sir. better arrest him and take legal action against him.

    Kadupol Jothywansa Thursday, 14 January 2016 09:43 AM

    Gamma deserves punishment for sure, as he has become a hero to go against the courts

    SL-Wallah Thursday, 14 January 2016 09:44 AM

    How funny! What in hell is going on? Is this a police state or what?

    Bubble banda Thursday, 14 January 2016 09:44 AM

    He had received a big sum over two millions from MR to attack Hirunika.

    J Palitha Thursday, 14 January 2016 09:45 AM

    Halloo Sir, to get you out on bail, have you started collecting your usual Rs. 100/- per head as hat collection.

    Bubble Banda Thursday, 14 January 2016 09:57 AM

    He should have been by now arrested.

    onlooker Thursday, 14 January 2016 10:26 AM

    First prove what Gammanpila uttered is wrong, then proceed with the case.

    Desmond Jeromme Thursday, 14 January 2016 10:29 AM

    May be he might have some balance after buying a Mega Luxury car.

    Premalal Thursday, 14 January 2016 10:32 AM

    No need for anyone to pay someone to discredit Hirunika, she is doing a great job of it herself.

    Kadupol Jothywansa Thursday, 14 January 2016 10:33 AM

    Right decision. Best think is to keep this man behind bars.

    Vijith Pieterz Thursday, 14 January 2016 10:34 AM

    Now Weerawansa is very quiet, but this fellow is too much.

    Premalal Thursday, 14 January 2016 10:34 AM

    She looked pleased as punch walking into the court house swinging her hands freely while the other 8 lesser mortals were bundled in.

    Wise Donkey Thursday, 14 January 2016 10:42 AM

    Are there any complaint free politicians in our country, they are biggest trouble makers and not the ordinary people. Shame on them.

    Lima Thursday, 14 January 2016 10:44 AM

    HE IS MR STOOGE AND ROBBER , HE IS THE MOST RACIST BORN , DO NOT SPARE HIM

    onlooker Thursday, 14 January 2016 10:50 AM

    If it is so we all will have to contribute for the sake of yahapalana.

    Diyani Friday, 15 January 2016 08:01 AM

    No requests from the Police to Attorney General for advice in this case? How selective? Good governance at its best.

    BuffaloaCitizen Thursday, 14 January 2016 10:58 AM

    99% of what gamanpila and weerawansa utter is rubbish. However in the case of Hirunika, he is credible.
