    May justice be done ONLY if he is found guilty.

    Don't be stupid POLICE cannot find the culprit so fast. This
    is only a frame work. The real culprit is at large with money
    and political back-up. Whom are they fooling.

    Yes for sure there is much more to the story, listen to both sides and get to the bottom of the FULL story . BUT if he is the actual killer, the same must be done to him for sure without delay.

    Brilliant. No politics involved. The Police cracks the case in good time. Lasantha Wickramatunga's murder? Obvious or what?

    Roshan Friday, 23 November 2012 08:59 AM

    Yes both should be murdered, unfortunately the victim is already dead.

    sorenson Friday, 23 November 2012 08:49 AM

    We would like to know the backgroung of this killing - sure there will be a story!

    The stupid morons calling for this suspects hanging just shows the uncivilised culture of Sri Lankan society. Their is always two sides to a coin and a intelligent and knowledgeable society will listen to both sides before commenting.

    Tony Montana Thursday, 22 November 2012 03:36 PM

    He is a suspect so they have to find out whether he did the crime.

    Faris, Thursday, 22 November 2012 03:32 PM

    Public execution is the better answer.

    Kondebendapucheena Thursday, 22 November 2012 03:22 PM
