    New rich in action

    Sammy Tuesday, 15 September 2015 10:21 AM

    Having BMW but having no character or having low character.

    Malsha Tuesday, 15 September 2015 10:37 AM

    Cut all ties with Russia and ban BMWs in Sri Lanka! (Like they did in PSD accident case)

    Excellent. Get him to apologize at the same spot with as many who want to watch, give wide media coverage and warn him that the next time he will go for several months. Unless you take punitive action NOW, it will never stop. These goons who are supported by politicos think no end of themselves.

    SAM Tuesday, 15 September 2015 11:00 AM

    Big show by the newly rich morons who thinks they own the roads with their luxury cars. A show off cos of the lady in the DPL car. I wonder what his show would have been if the DPL man was with a few Russian guys in the car. Would have pissed in his pants for sure.

    Clearly video suggests that the diplomat was attacked by the thug, while using filthy languages and insulting word. He should have called Police when told that the other side is s diplomat.

    Native Sri lanakan Tuesday, 15 September 2015 11:03 AM

    This guy put jail for long time, then he body fat reduce slowly bad guy and bad srilankan

    Silva Tuesday, 15 September 2015 11:14 AM

    Yes, thats right but diplomatic immunity is something to be dealt internationally

    Jayantha Mendis Tuesday, 15 September 2015 12:30 PM

    Put the fellow in welikada, He will get the VIP treatment.

    kumar Tuesday, 15 September 2015 12:34 PM

    No only him all the motorists who start brawl after the accidents should be punished. They should understand the value of civilized life.

    Cobra Tuesday, 15 September 2015 05:05 AM

    Serves him right. These high highfalutin buggers are the ones that give our country a bad name. Lock him up for a longtime so that he will come down to earth!

    Silva Monday, 14 September 2015 05:59 PM

    Good, yahapalanaya at work, put him behind bars for his misbehavior, let him learn how to behave in public place and let all know sri lanka is not a thuggery state !

    citizen a Tuesday, 15 September 2015 05:57 AM

    Agree.but if this applies on our DP community abroad well god bless mother Lanka.

    Jayantha Tuesday, 15 September 2015 06:33 AM

    Diplomat or otherwise we need this type of hooligans behind bars to learn their lesson. We are brought to shame by this type of characters acting this way.

    aja Monday, 14 September 2015 06:22 PM

    same way when the DP behave badly they should be held responsible as well ..Then DP immunity takes place

    CLH Tuesday, 15 September 2015 01:23 PM

    This guy should be locked up until he grows up to be a man. Man to man he would have ended up a pulp. No less than defecating in public.

    sri wickrama Tuesday, 15 September 2015 01:24 PM

    Let the world know rule of law has been restored in Sri Lanka after a long time.

    Ram Tuesday, 15 September 2015 06:52 AM

    Very good move. Put him into jail for 6 months.Also have some control over DP and NGO s as well. There is vehicle parked on narrow road corner by Oxfarm on rotini rd, and a narrow road. This is their permanent parking.

    Malini Tuesday, 15 September 2015 07:06 AM

    Wonderful example of Sri Lankan hospitality and warm smiles.

    Bippity Boppity Boo Tuesday, 15 September 2015 07:22 AM

    It is the "Chinthanaya" culture that breed these "so called patriots".

    umar Tuesday, 15 September 2015 07:30 AM

    well done the thug needs a taste of his own medicine. put him behind bars and then lets see who the big man is via DM iOS App

    Immunity Tuesday, 15 September 2015 01:56 PM

    Non diplomatic staff (from their country) are abusing diplomatic previligious by displaying DPL signs on their private vehicles. Check and inform the missions

    mallwa Tuesday, 15 September 2015 08:43 AM

    We have very bad records for not enforcing the law, especially in the cases of foreigners are involved. We as a nation, a country need to maintain a high discipline towards foreigners irrespective who they are.

    ibadun Tuesday, 15 September 2015 09:02 AM

    when they are rich they less to respect the law. a US survey conveys that high price vehicle drivers less following the traffic than low price drivers

    Tax Payer Tuesday, 15 September 2015 09:21 AM
