    Those who comment above - keeping aside trying to throw stones at others - do you really believe that our wonder of asia has a clean record. = come on man - let us put our house in order - classic current example is the burial issue.

    Dear WEOG, please look in to human rights of christian minority here, Christians were massacred in hundreds, two years ago, reason is we are not following same faith as murderers, so this could repeat again and again,as long as,it's there in their holy book, your timely intervention, would be saved people from future massacres

    Denmark, Norway, Switzerland, the Netherlands, France, Liechtenstein and the United States, the worms that are coming out of the woodwork. US who called UNHRC a 'cess pit of political bias' has put it's shit into this same cess pit. The others are Tamil diaspora (LTTE terrorist supporters) block electoral supporters of the politicians in these countries.

    Embassies of those countries accused for co-operation producing drama on ' kidnapping and sexually molesting young lady ' roll of main actress was played by beautiful young lady Ganiya Barrister Francis,a local employee of Swiss embassy. intention of producers was to bring bad name to Srilanka and its newly appointed popular President Gota, for their disappointment, it turned to flop,and all laugh at them
