    If you talk about traitor there are worst traitors in sri lanka than lasantha who was a voice for the voiceless.

    Prasanna Saturday, 13 November 2010 01:43 AM

    I can imagine how tough will be the punishment to the killer...

    silva Saturday, 13 November 2010 01:06 AM

    Judiciary in this country will produce some small dramas like this. When it comes to big issues like political assassinations, denial of civil rights of that like Fonseka's , they don't eve utter a word against it.
    Shame on you judges and lawyers (Sorry for very few honest guys)

    Percy Mandawala Friday, 12 November 2010 11:56 PM

    Justice cannot reach to the person who ordered Lasantha's Killing.

    Smart Aleck Friday, 12 November 2010 11:05 PM

    A thief is a thief and must be punished, irrespective of whether he was involved in the murder or not.

    KD Friday, 12 November 2010 09:14 PM

    Some people accused SF for LWs death before he became pal with RW. Soon after that all those accusers changed the tune to praise SF.

    Upul Friday, 12 November 2010 09:12 PM

    He has been punished and is in jail.

    Upul Friday, 12 November 2010 09:11 PM

    It is known that he is in jail now.

    leel gunathilake Friday, 12 November 2010 09:04 PM

    Dev man who is the prison for WHITE FLAG case stole his life

    Ranil Friday, 12 November 2010 08:34 PM

    Ranjani Friday, 12 November 2010 01:43 PM

    Kamal Friday, 12 November 2010 05:34 PM

    Above the crowd Friday, 12 November 2010 05:21 PM

    I really don't get it.Investigators have no clue about the murderer, and chasing after a lousy phone thief .Was he too involved in the murder.

    Suthan Friday, 12 November 2010 05:20 PM

    Who cares???????????????? Don't tarnish his image by telling this

    Dev Friday, 12 November 2010 04:54 PM

    But who stole his life?

    Katussa Friday, 12 November 2010 04:04 PM

    No one can escape Karma, he will get what he deserve sooner or later. Who know he may be alreday paying for this.

    Yehiya-Doha Friday, 12 November 2010 03:28 PM

    Fun of justice in Sri lanka.

    Oyage Podi Guru Friday, 12 November 2010 03:12 PM

    A phone thief should be punished, like any thief. Where is the murderer?

    Sadarana Kota Friday, 12 November 2010 03:04 PM

    Nadarajah - Now you can visit your friend in the prison...

    Prageeth Eknaligoda Friday, 12 November 2010 02:55 PM

    Please releses the man who took the Lasantha's phone.

    Lasantha is a traitor. He should be severely punished.

    Sanhida Friday, 12 November 2010 02:52 PM

    He can join the guy who stole LW's life and make tea as well.

    Shaik Anwar Ahamath Friday, 12 November 2010 02:52 PM

    Itis inconceivable that there are no suspects after nearly two years for a daylight murder

    leel gunathilake Friday, 12 November 2010 02:40 PM
