    If it were a local girl, he would get away with it scot free. Mind you, he still could be 'remanded' and then bailed out just like the dear OIC quite recently.

    This man should not be released by Presidential orders, as the freedom we Sri Lanksn gained by winning the war and the assets we gained by way of Tourists HAS LOST TO A VERY GREAT EXTENT BY THESE DASTEREDLY ACTS!!!

    If the government wants to remain popular, it should disarm all politicians immediately. If we the ordinary mortals could go about our business and protect ourselves with no guns, there is no reason why politicians need guns to do their business and protect themselves. Now, if a foreign tourist is not safe at a hotel from the gun carrying government thug meaning elected thug, do we need to talk about the safety of the ordinary people?

    An embarrassment to all Sri Lankans.
    Please give him the death penalty!

    naswaf Monday, 16 January 2012 08:03 AM

    plz be ready to write another heading saying he is released.....!

    Dalu Banda Tuesday, 27 December 2011 02:04 AM

    Sri Lanka has become a country of thugs. Where is our Tharunya???

    C.K.Lankaputhra Tuesday, 27 December 2011 02:08 AM

    Will be pardoned soon

    Nodrog Tuesday, 27 December 2011 02:25 AM

    don't let him go abroad for treatment.

    Saman Tuesday, 27 December 2011 02:51 AM

    Unless MR chain these mad dogs, they will do more harm than LTTE did.These uneducated,low life,inferiority complexes scumbag politicos are a real threat to this country now. If a tourist cannot enjoy freely in this country, how a normal citizen do that. Whoever it is, should get maximum punishment. After Duminda's case, politicos know that they can kill somebody and escape from that.

    As Sena said this is a really a black mark on us. IC is waiting/ Tamil diaspora is waiting. Our moda thaka theeruwo rata kanawa.

    Tokyo Tuesday, 27 December 2011 03:06 AM

    Ok, I can see what will happen hearafter. He got orders to surrender. His fellow goons will confess that they act on their wills without any guidance from him. He will be dischraged sending other to death penalty. Those who sentenced will get president pardon just after few months!!!
    Lowless country!!!!

    Lahir Tuesday, 27 December 2011 03:31 AM

    You can expect more tragic incidents of this nature. Government should held responsible for this because it promoted uneducated killers (many) to these political seats. LLRC explains this vividly.

    roshan Tuesday, 27 December 2011 03:49 AM

    they made him to surrender because the govt would come under pressure otherwise from uk. polce will not frame any charges against him, they would cook up a story saying that the dead man fired first and would probably taken to Elizabeth hospital in Singapore for brain injury. what a stupidity.

    vuusa Tuesday, 27 December 2011 04:06 AM

    He will be freed soon. This is Sri Lanka.

    Calistus Jayatilleke Tuesday, 27 December 2011 04:29 AM

    He will be eligible for a Presidential Pardon.

    Jamis Banda Tuesday, 27 December 2011 04:31 AM

    I don't think he would get any kind of punishment - this is Sri Lanka. But, what will happen to tourism ?

    Peter Tuesday, 27 December 2011 04:34 AM

    Yes, he will be released because he is a political thug.
