    The way he is smiling and laughing (as he has done nothing), he is sure to be freed soon without any charges.

    If goods were sold on credit to a customer and not paid its a civil matter. But when goods are issued for a Election campaign and unpaid, it is pure robbing of state funds and amounts to criminal offence and no bail should be given. He should be sentenced to rigorous imprisonment.

    He will fall sick with an unidentified sickness today or tomorrow. Maybe we have to name the sickness Corruptitis or Arrestitis.

    Duminda was arrested when he returned to Sri Lanka and granted bail. He is going under same bail condition and case goes on. If he is proven guilty he will be sentenced to death either for Drugs and for Baratha killing.

    He is an Innocent politician and a genuine businessman. All wealth he has now he got from is parents. Ranil is jealous of him and try to punish him for crimes he did as a powerful minister of the previous government. If 2.8m/40k=165 (and 2/2=0) and people accepted that why punish an innocent criminal/?

    Gov. is trying to gain political advantage by arresting people without proper investigation or proof. What happened to the central bank governor? He was set free. Two laws in the country?

    well done, keep up the good work, until all the big crooks are behind bars.
