    How cute, the CID spouts the name only after the suspect has safely left the country. I wont be surprised if Namal arranged motorcade to drop him off at Airport.

    Look out he will never return to this country, why did the CID take so long to identify him, as the public knew that it was Saranga.

    Yoshitha's man. Followed him around in the club rugby circuit and doing the dirty work for him outside. Good to see Isipathana, his old school, has disowned him!

    Arrest Mahinda Rajapakse , he got all these goons to do dirty work. His conduct has been so lowly unbecoming of a Prime minister.
