    What will be the sentence for war criminals?

    NO, in one month. He has already served 14 months during trial. So he will be rehabilitated once he gives the Bank Account details and transfers all the money to the brothers.

    Did he say "Mata mathake neh". Also, does that mean he would be using the arms after his release???

    culprits shall be reformed and rehabilitated and they must repent for the sins they have committed and have the intention of getting themselves reformed to integrated to the society

    one who was sentenced to jail for 15 months is an war criminal. our forcers were defenders and not offenders.

    Definitely. The brothers will take care of the huge sum of money in the bank accounts of the LTTE, and they will also take care of this guy. Might give a ministerial portfolio. Very well planned.

    What about KP who was the actual gun runner? May be Deshabandu?

    If he becomes an associate of the Hench-aiya Group of Companies who the CJ and AG are already members, he will dismiss the case as no proof and be rewarded with a BMW after CW.
