Either RW was afraid to prosecute or wanted to let those suspected criminals. Even in the murder of Lasantha Wicramatunga, there were no progress. By doing so, UNF sends the message that it was not going deliver any promises

    UNP ministers are falling by the way side. Is this the end of the UNP? Hope not. The highest law maker of the country was a two tonged serpent Mr. Sirisena, for four years, the UNP was under his rule, even the Prime Minister was unable of taking stern action,when necessary. Dust your selfs up get up and fight for the future of the country.
