    All the big sharks are protected and only small fish like this get caught. There may be some big shot behind this theft.

    How about busting officials at higher levels too - it is mainly the curruption that has got us in to this massive mess.

    Calistus Jayatilleke Monday, 20 February 2012 06:36 AM

    Considering the massive corruption in every sphere of the government, this must be just a drop in the ocean.
