    These local government Politian’s were harassing his wife for along time. when he tried to protect her this happened. Now all too common in SL. a women can’t go on da roads, people can’t go to night clubs with a women no discipline in the country. Lack of a strong police force present in all parts of the country & unwillingness to stand up to political thuggery main reasons! Very soon tourist will think of other safer destinations.

    First of all the GOSL must take an action to collect all the legal and illegal weapons.

    This is what the Sinhalese can do.

    were the body-guards from the police or his private goon-army? Anyway why would a local govt politician need armed security. Innocent people with no connections are not safe when they go out because of these kind of puffed-up empty heads with little authority.

    First of all shuld be reduce the minister posts from 145 to a normal 10 . And give them good power and responsibility.

    Instead we have 135 thugs in the government that have no education at all . Just grown up as thugs and mafiosos

    very digusting situation. Hope CID won't say the foreigner attacked first

    i think goverment should give some precautionary notice to all foreigners coming to Sri Lanka , better to place this notice at Katunayake Airport in main languages like English , German and French so accordingly the visitors could avoid such tubulance, via vigilance.

    Well said.such animals should be put down.and I don't think the chief suspect is 'at large' it's just that the police are afraid to arrest him.

    Fayad Monday, 26 December 2011 10:24 AM

    Very true

    Sanjaya Monday, 26 December 2011 10:36 AM

    We will not get tourists if we don't take strong action. What is the protection we are giving them. Time to re-start the Tourist Police.

    after an intensive investigation CID will conclude..."the foreigner stabbed his wife and stabbed himself"

    how to take action against henchmen of the crown prince??

    apparently the victim was a british national of israeli origin who had been working in the gaza strip as an aid worker.

    think about that. the palestinian territories were a lot safer than good old sri lanka, at least in the case of this british national
