    What is the use of imposing capitol punishments without implementation? There are more than 300 convicts to be hanged.

    Justice must be upheld. Even if the the law is broken by other people of power, it doesnt validate wrong done here. Good judgement!

    All the above coments are fabulas.How can four be sentenced for one murder?Because a Policeman is involved they would have fabricated evidence for at least two of them?

    I just cannot understand in this Buddhist country of ours(Dharmadweepaya) so many people are happy when people get the death penalty.I am sure one of this four people must be innocent.

    The decision comes after 4 years? Why they take such a long time? Is it because to grab all the money that these poor people have for the comfort of the lawyers?

    Don't worry, you all will have another chance to escape with another jail break , you all can have normal life after that.

    Worthless giving death sentence if it is not carried out.

    Mohamed Thursday, 13 December 2012 07:14 AM
