    Fusion Thursday, 06 September 2012 04:40 AM

    or maybe he decided to dump the UPFA and go with the opposition, hence why his assets were frozen.

    For how long ?

    Kothalawala Thursday, 06 September 2012 05:18 AM

    "The CID is on the look out for any one who tries to earn money in undue ways" Then what about the politicians?

    Sanjaya Tennakoon Thursday, 06 September 2012 05:20 AM

    If the CID is on the look out for more, Check all the Minister's Houses...

    singing fish Thursday, 06 September 2012 05:05 AM

    All the drug dealers from the top to bottom should be punished irrespective of which party they belong thus paving a way for the wellbeing of innocent yyoungsters.

    ChamaraJ Thursday, 06 September 2012 05:14 AM

    I am sure welle suda tried to jump ship......but at least CID is now taking some action. They need to send a stronger message...

    dot uncle Thursday, 06 September 2012 05:42 AM

    In Sri Lanka only Drug dealers and the politicians are having the luxury and duper life , It can be an oposition memeber of parliament or a goverment MP ; all these peole are enjoying super duper life , Recently I visited a leading beach hotel in Trinco , It was strange to note that a shouting opposition MP having a Range Rover which is costing more than 8 Million even if he bought it on the tax free permit . From where he gets this much money , he was a just a clearing forwarder of Air freight.

    truealf Thursday, 06 September 2012 05:49 AM

    It not just Free\ing assert....something Big plane behind this... Why they can not arrest all Kudus...

    Katie Thursday, 06 September 2012 06:13 AM

    the CID should also catch the illegal money lenders who take very high interest on money borrowed.

    RAZA Thursday, 06 September 2012 11:07 PM

    HE IS THE ONLY PERSON EARNING MONEY IN UNDUE AND ILLEGAL MANNER IN SRI LANKA.

    buffaloa citizen Thursday, 06 September 2012 06:54 AM

    Dont jump your gun, this kudo may have angered someone in authority or found playing with the opposition....otherwise all top level kudos operate with total impunity with the grace of the very very top.

    buffaloa citizen Thursday, 06 September 2012 07:09 AM

    End of the day, when you go home, have dinner with your family and then lay back to sleep, listen to your conscience and enjoy the peace of mind that you finished your day with honesty, responsibly, with respect to others around you, without any criminality, following good ethics and principles. What a great feeling!!! Can this Kudo do that? Can MR do that? Can IGP do that? Can Mohan Pieris do that?

    silva Thursday, 06 September 2012 07:42 AM

    Expect some immediate transfers .

    Fair N Square Thursday, 06 September 2012 07:40 AM

    LOL... and even after a murder.. some" druggies" can claim they don't remember anything and the Additional judge says that the Police should ask for arrest warrant from the court..

    If the CID is after all the people who have ill gotten wealth, we will NOT have even one member of parliament, Provincial council and Pradeshiya sabha representatives.... not forgetting the police force... customs and the like....

    Minister Thursday, 06 September 2012 08:09 AM

    As citizens of this country this will be a good news only if this rule is applicable across the board and to all equally!

    Minister Thursday, 06 September 2012 08:10 AM

    May be wele suda is not a deshapremee suda!

    rufus Thursday, 06 September 2012 10:44 AM

    Now that Wele suda is captured how about his political contacts who helped him on this business ? Can the CID start grilling this wele suda publish all politician's names ? Then can we also know if his wife has received forged passports how did the passport office get involved and who has signed the applications and the record of this issue.?Can we also get a full travel record of his wife since 2006 or 2008. Can you also publish the Lawyer who was involved on all DEED transactions pertaining to the houses which were purchased out of this money... Can we also publish the BANK who was protecting all the money which was put in to get credit cards / etc....We should also investigate the bank which did not even checked this man's income and get the Central Bank to check on such huge amount of money been investigated.Didn't anyone at any point be concerned about such amount of wealth popping up like mushrooms ? WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR SPECIAL PERMISSIONS GIVEN TO THIS MAN ?

    Sonali De Silva Thursday, 06 September 2012 01:29 AM

    buffaloa citizen Thursday, 06 September 2012 03:32 AM
