    Justice finally... I have heard of this Hon Judge before and she has always been tough on real offenders. We need many Judges of this nature!

    Will they have a future in Sri Lanka?

    its no point sentencing them to death when there is no capital punishment applied.....there should be another sentence which will give this devil harsh suffering...!!!

    this is a good example

    As the capital punishment is confined only to paper, they will just be in jail at public expense. It is high time that it is re-introduced.
