    Lasantha Wickramsingha is a great writer and he has readers across the globe and he did not draw ethnic line in his writing. He enjoyed supports from all communities in Sri Lanka. Anyone who is behind his murder is a cruel person.

    What about Richard Soyza? Why no one talk about his death.

    The beginning itself sounds unsatisfactory. Sooner, than later this would be forgotten.

    There was an investigation into the case of Richard De zoysa. All the suspects died during the court action.

    Or are you looking for a volunteer to beat the crap out and to get a confession?

    KaluSudha Friday, 09 October 2015 09:12 AM

    The whole country knows who did it, except the police and CID. hehehehhe!!!!!!

    Asking the public is OK. But ask also Mervin, Sajin Vaas and General Fonseka.

    Stop accusing Gota and MR! Now is the time to come up with the actual facts!

    Formers:Men of Karuna Amman. Later: Gota

    What a joke? CID should look at Satellite images and CCTV footage that does OT EXIST. That will help them solve this case. or send sleuths to Maldives to investigate "pre planed explosions".

    Goliwog Thursday, 08 October 2015 08:20 PM

    We all know as to who is responsible for this killing except the police.

    Narayanan Thursday, 08 October 2015 08:26 PM

    Please don’t torture the public, if you have guts please arrest the main culprit who ordered to kill. You only have guts to arrest and torture innocent students.
