    Only now we know what kind of coward this guy has become. If he has done nothing wrong, why the heck does he require to petition. Out of the 45 respondents, has he also included all the citizens of Sri Lanka?

    This shows that Gota does not have a backbone.

    @buffaloacitizen, if not for Gota, today can you write this comment. Oh yes, you are just one of those residing in other country and not in Sri Lanka.

    Dear Patriot.. even if the war was won, we still were not able to write stuff like these when he was in power ne.. oh yes you are just one of those supporting the king blindly and think that only what he does is right.

    People like you encouraged him to do the undoable. It was the three armed forces who should be given credit and not the guys who looked after their pockets.

    Yes, now I have GOT An idea how cunning this guy is.....!!!

    Whose fundamental rights did he ever respect when he was in power.

    Basil has a backbone, as he has been warded due to a problem there.

    Ranjith Tuesday, 12 May 2015 11:15 AM

    This is how Americans behave. Typical American. Wonder how he knew they were going to arrest him, Unless he knows that what he has done are punishable offenses. Should have mentioned in the FR petition to Stop the FCID from investigating and let guys you know and control to do the job to clear the name as in the past..
