    Is it only Pillayan ?, how about the government leaders who gave instructions to obey the LTTE

    J Palitha Monday, 12 October 2015 07:51 AM

    For this murder Pillaiyan was paid 8.7 million by MR as this was a pre-planned matter.

    Giri Sunday, 11 October 2015 07:02 PM

    Wheels of justice in Srilanka finally moving in the right direction!

    Cobra Monday, 12 October 2015 07:32 AM

    ..and to think all these guys were protected and mollycoddled by the previous regime!!!

    Kiris Baba Amaray Monday, 12 October 2015 06:45 AM

    Reasonable request, if ICC handles him - they will trap his companions like Karuna too.

    Kadupol Jothywansa Monday, 12 October 2015 06:43 AM

    His bag should have been checked first as he is a murderer.

    Bubble Banda Monday, 12 October 2015 06:42 AM

    Well said, yes Karuna should have been arrested by now for killing the Policemen

    Push Monday, 12 October 2015 06:00 AM

    Hope this is not just another media show!

    CitizenPerera Sunday, 11 October 2015 07:58 PM

    Pillayan is not the deadliest among terrorist like colonel Karuna who living the high life. Karuna is responsible for thousands of deaths that include 700 policemen and thirty Buddhist monks.

    ari Sunday, 11 October 2015 07:34 PM

    He came prepared for the arrest with his overnight kit bag.

    Bala Sunday, 11 October 2015 07:30 PM

    Good work - one by one they should go - next Karuna over killing 600 policemen in the Eastern Province when he was the lord there.

    Sene Sunday, 11 October 2015 07:23 PM

    Is bail coming?

    Sapu Sunday, 11 October 2015 07:22 PM

    He killed thousands when he was in the LTTE and killed even more after he left the LTTE , he killed his enemies for his own selfish gains but in the end he will also get bail

    Real Peace Sunday, 11 October 2015 07:20 PM

    Well done, new govt! There is an MP hiding in our parliament who is wanted in India for murder, kidnap and ransom. New govt should not treat Pillayan and this MP differently - this MP should be extradited to India to face justice.

    Goliwog Sunday, 11 October 2015 07:15 PM

    No can be. Just look at the creature. He should be handed over to the ICC.
