A senior police officer is seen saluting a smiling UPFA parliamentarian Duminda Silva soon after he returned home after he was granted bail. He is a suspect in the Mulleriyawa shooting, in which Lakshman Bharatha Premachandra and three others were killed. Pic by Gayan Amarasekara
It is very shame to say I am a Sri Lankan, I feel really guilty for not having done anything against this. Will this earth bare this unjustice? We criticize international community for asking about human rights. But who will justify favoration and biasness to politicians?

The whole police department should be ashamed of themselves for saluting a suspected criminal. What has he done to the country? Can the same salute go to the former General?

Police might say that Duminda is only a suspect in a murder case and not a convicted criminal, and therefore saluting is OK. Then salute all the unconvicted criminals! Shame Shame!!!!
