    Good job done by our Police Department. Keep it up, special thanks to IGP.

    Please investigate and see whether these gangsters are backed by UPFA thugs, meaning Ex-Ministers.

    Are they connected to Dr. Mervyn Silva?

    Relax! There is a time and a place for everything. The bigger fish will take more time. But the fact that the police managed to apprehend this gang shows they are not as incompetent as some might think.

    Have patients my friend. This is only until the elections. After that everything will be forgotten.

    Even experts give time frames and sometimes they have to be extended.This is the same in this instance also. Yes the impatience and disappointed is very understandable but have some patience. At least we have the immediate freedom of expression. No one burned down Stages or attacked opposition rallies like what happened during the MR times. So pls give the govt more breathing space. These things take time and Legal aspects have to be carefully looked at and followed.

    Have patience. First all laws to apprehend all the culprits must be in place with no loopholes for them to escape.

    In the absence of secretaries who takes the law unto themselves. It takes time to catch em by the b---. Else the govt will make mockery of it by just arresting without much evidence. The most difficult part is convincing our fools. Mainly the type who still attend rallies without free transport.
