    Mr. Kabral, we are not interested in stories which happened a generation back (50 years ago). We are now in 2020. People who did those damages are dead and gone. I am sure if you had met German in the 1980s, it would have been inappropriate for you to remind him about the holocaust which happened in 1940s since 4 decades have passed by then and people who committed such crimes were dead and gone. We are keenly observing your performance in the next 5 years.

    So, the criminal actions of the JVP is a justification for others to criminally plunder the nation.?

    Joe Wednesday, 12 February 2020 08:55 AM

    and why he is saying this, to justify his looting?

    Abu Umar Wednesday, 12 February 2020 09:03 AM

    Does it allow him to rob the central bank??

    His pathetic defensive stance is obvious.First he and his friends find loopholes in the forensic report now he thrash JVP who is doing its best to bring justice .

    This dumb joker and cunning thief should be put in jail with Mahendren for many years. The audacity these thieves have in this country is appalling. The JVP was punished with over 70,000 killed, without trial innocent and guilty hope we can do that to the current criminals too.

    You, as an unqualified upstart from MR Grace, appointed Governor of the Central Bank to rob it for the benefit of the Rajapaksa clan should not spread such stupid comments but withdraw from the public eye.
