    But this guy's photo was everywhere in Kelaniya on signboards for the opening of the highway.

    A good lesson to other politicos who misuse their title.I also think that he should have sent to jail at least for two years,not suspended judgement.

    Where do you think the Judge will end up then? The lawless corrupt Banana Republic only serve and protect Criminals.

    Why suspended? He should have been on a suspender in suspense.

    sobers Monday, 12 May 2014 09:10 AM

    I was expecting a better punishment. Without suspension, a term of prison sentence with hard labour and penalty much more as these politicians are filthy rich.

    At long last a sensible judgement, something rare these days.

    Rubert Vanderkoon Monday, 12 May 2014 08:53 AM

    At last, there is some sensible judgement from the courts of law. What it proves is, there is still is hope for us!

    Judge of the law of jungle sentenced by the law of the country.

    Justice denid Monday, 12 May 2014 08:16 AM

    Most people here seems not to know the law. He does not go to jail. It means for the next 7 years if he behaves well nothing will happen to him. Only if he breaks the law he will go to Jail for 2 years. Wonder of Sri Lanka. Pls understand people.

    I don't get it. Says "rigorous imprisonment", but its suspended. Then why "rigorous"? Anyway it a good sentence to a moron.

    ibadun Monday, 12 May 2014 08:10 AM

    good decision ,set a example for future cases

    Dingimahattaya Monday, 12 May 2014 07:55 AM

    After sometimes the law will be changed.

    300,000 will be paid with ill-gotten money

    mithra Monday, 12 May 2014 07:26 AM

    Thank your honour for implementing the Law of the country instead of the rule of the jungle as in some cases involving politicos.

    Ranger thomas Monday, 12 May 2014 07:22 AM

    Get him to kneel in front of the teacher and ask for mercy.
