    SL is a very dangerous country to live, you may be a prisoner in any uncertain period as a result of primitive and aggressive judicial system.

    Anthony Sunday, 08 January 2017 05:18 PM

    Shouldn't have been released. they're in there for a reason. Even bus drivers not paying their fines might have been released.
