    Cruel. They remained tight lipped when the family was desperately looking for its loved one.

    My vote for the Swan and the Elephant has paid off. There was a former minister who had seen Mr.Eknaligoda in Paris (?). This man too has to be questioned and arrested. Finally the big handler (s) whom we all suspect need to be questioned and arrested. We have waited long enough.

    Meanwhile, did the Military Spokesman Brigadier Jayanath Jayaweera say the army personnel had been permitted by the Army Headquarters to be arrested !

    We hope one or more of "the army personnel" will be "permitted by the Army Headquarters to" to become crown witnesses if required. (Note - quoted text is from a previous news item.

    So former CJ Pieris was wrong as usual - not only God but many others knew where Ekneligoda was. (laid to rest).

    these four should be given the maximum punishment since they are licensed to carry arms and suppose to protect the country and its citizens. punishment should be an example to public servants who take illegal orders from politicos.

    So Arundhika Fernando saw a ghost in Paris
