    This is blatent Interference in the internal affairs of Sri Lanka - why do we tolerate this nonsense???

    Lord Wolfstein Monday, 01 July 2019 05:20 PM

    This is not interference in internal affairs, it's about human rights. In the meantime it has turned out that only a lonely madman wants executions among our politicians.

    Mr.Prime Minister, give Gamarala enough rope to hang himself.

    Why the diplomats in Singapore keep quiet while Singapore executes criminals very frequently.

    Lord Wolfstein Monday, 01 July 2019 05:16 PM

    Singapore has never abolished the death penalty, while just a year ago Sri Lanka reaffirmed its commitment to the UN not to carry out the death penalty .Furthermore, one must not execute the barbaric laws of other countries.

    Ron, why are we seeking the help of the international communities for the internal matters of SLK ? Our political clan created this problem over the past 70 years, did we not ?
