    Big show for the media. Do some fruitful work rather than questioning people and end up with nothing.

    Nimal Sunday, 19 April 2015 05:19 PM

    Sri Lanka is going to have tough hurdle to jump with stupid people like you!

    Bala Sunday, 19 April 2015 03:36 PM

    GC and Jagath - About how much time do you think these investigations should take? About how long does it take to gather the relevant information?

    Desmond Jeromme Sunday, 19 April 2015 08:03 AM

    This hora monk should be arrested, he is a close associate of MR.

    Wikileaks Sunday, 19 April 2015 08:03 AM

    It is better to have rouges than having a puppet as a president.

    Horri Jimonis Sunday, 19 April 2015 08:02 AM

    Latha Saturday, 18 April 2015 09:12 PM

    Hi there Saturday, 18 April 2015 11:30 PM

    Please understand even a person involved in criminal may send to prison after few years. No one could be arrested without proper evidance. These matters could be coveted by documentary. Now the wrong doors will think twice before robbing. They will be asked to refund the money. Prison is not a place to fill up with ministers.

    de silva Saturday, 18 April 2015 10:57 PM

    Some of them have several Bank accounts and doing buisness covering to the Yellow rob.We are the fools to invite them for alms giving.They preach us Pancha seelaya and they themself breaks it.We are the fools.Some have mistresses also.We are the fools.Some go to Universities and make demonstrations asking for their rights .Rather than asking for rights they much stay in the temples and preach the old upaasaka ammalas because of these upasaka ammalas they survive.

    Siri Saturday, 18 April 2015 10:54 PM

    No one is framing Mahinda. This is the truth.

    GC Saturday, 18 April 2015 10:40 PM

    Yes, they should punish, but have we seen any real arrests and court cases so far? Only a lot of hot air.

    Bala Saturday, 18 April 2015 10:31 PM

    Mehema weda WATINNE neha neda.

    dilip Saturday, 18 April 2015 10:31 PM

    Trying hard to nail Mr. Mahinda before the elections.This President and the government are working over time to find a good reason .Every thing started with Mr. Mahinda trying to take the power by force then a helicopter after that expensive cars. These things show how scared you people are.

    Veritas Saturday, 18 April 2015 10:06 PM

    Jagath Saturday, 18 April 2015 10:04 PM

    Prasannajit Saturday, 18 April 2015 09:31 PM

    Dinesh Saturday, 18 April 2015 09:18 PM

    This is revenge from Yahapalana for supporting MR

    Mohamed Saturday, 18 April 2015 09:15 PM

    Dharma Saturday, 18 April 2015 09:13 PM

    This is a recipe for disaster when clergy get involved in politics instead of religion.
