    Cobra Thursday, 19 July 2012 02:33 AM

    They will not be voting for UPFA this time for sure!!!

    Achari Thursday, 19 July 2012 02:50 AM

    10 rupees is nothing for them. They earn thousands for a day.

    dev Thursday, 19 July 2012 02:51 AM

    ascharyaya, beggers fined...

    Kaloo Thursday, 19 July 2012 03:09 AM

    Apparantly they paid the fines with 5000 Rupee notes.

    GP Thursday, 19 July 2012 02:50 PM

    What about approx. 20 miilion beggers not begging at streets?

    maidan Thursday, 19 July 2012 03:26 AM

    Severely warned? Why not look for the reason that they are begging?

    Its Just Me Thursday, 19 July 2012 03:33 AM

    How about bringing a "Public Begging Tax" (PBT) and strengthening the government income?

    Yohan Perera Thursday, 19 July 2012 03:29 AM

    The fine is nothing. It should be noted however that courts have warned them severely... A warning from courts of magistrates cannot be taken for granted...

    Godagampala Rohana Friday, 20 July 2012 05:16 AM

    Means, the Govt. is stealing from the beggars too.

    union Thursday, 19 July 2012 03:28 AM

    Fining beggers!!!1 Now I believe our economy is broke...

    Kiris Baba Amaray Friday, 20 July 2012 05:19 AM

    Present rulers are begging from the beggars and building castles, in other words putha.

    solo Thursday, 19 July 2012 03:23 PM

    Here the names of the poor are published but important culprits names are usually not.

    Kiris Baba Amaray Friday, 20 July 2012 05:22 AM

    Cheap Govt. son to peenalize the beggars, shameful, the whole world is watching the status of Rjapakshe's cheap policies.

    phil collins Thursday, 19 July 2012 03:35 AM

    now the cops are begging from the beggers also...shame shame !! its a another in paradise............

    Saman Thursday, 19 July 2012 03:52 AM

    Dansal dorehi netha yadiyo, pansal valaya pura vesiyo......

    Nina Kamal Thursday, 19 July 2012 03:40 AM

    Wonderous! why do they have to fine a paltry amount of Rs. 10/- the beggars must be over the moon, laughing at the law!

    CHANDRAPALA Thursday, 19 July 2012 04:29 PM

    It is better than killing.

    andrewpitugala Thursday, 19 July 2012 04:13 AM

    Who will go into the reasons as to why they are on the streets begging. Not even the Judge.

    Criclover Thursday, 19 July 2012 04:07 AM

    wasting the time of Colombo Court for the sum of 60 rupees.

    sue Friday, 20 July 2012 06:34 AM

    Should have sent them to Temple Trees for a good meal, a change of clothes and a glimpse of what they should aim for.

    Mohamed Thursday, 19 July 2012 06:13 PM

    No fine for those who go begging abroad (at the WB)?

    Jeevan Thursday, 19 July 2012 04:45 AM

    You don't know the things that are happening inside courts!

    sahdi Thursday, 19 July 2012 05:01 AM

    very poor fine..... can not buy even plain tea for the 10rupees.

    Anil Thursday, 19 July 2012 05:04 AM

    Why dont the cops chase away beggars at traffic lights?. They are an obstruction and danger to traffic.

    Lasitha Thursday, 19 July 2012 05:06 AM

    Good. Now they will not obstruct pedestrians.

    Dugiya Thursday, 19 July 2012 05:21 AM

    begging is fined in Sri Lanka. so in the future no beggars. wonder of Asia.

    Lankan Saturday, 21 July 2012 03:08 AM

    No fine begging from IMF , world bank and private banks. I think they paid in 5000/= notes. this means government begging from the street beggars. .

    johno Friday, 20 July 2012 07:29 AM

    How do you know that? Have you begged with each and everyone of them everyday?

    Calistus Jayatilleke Thursday, 19 July 2012 05:54 AM

    From intenational begging to local begging - from the beggars, too. What a Miracle.

    bugger de begger Friday, 20 July 2012 12:49 AM

    good one...

    Nodrog Thursday, 19 July 2012 12:06 PM

    ...or a debacle?
