    He will not see light at the end of the tunnel with our Mr Vindictive

    Is it vindictiveness to arrest an arsonist? What of your house with all your belongings burnt down. Ask the many who lost all due to arson in 1983. Some organised groups used voter lists to target houses.

    Stupid comment. We are like this because of such uneducated voters.

    Then, why were UNP members not being produced before the Court yet for burning the beautiful Jaffna Library?...One of the largest library in Asia.

    JAFFNA LIBRARY Monday, 05 February 2024 10:05 PM

    NO APOLOGIES, IT HAS BEEN ALMOST 50 YEARS.

    Amaran Tuesday, 06 February 2024 12:57 AM

    That is because of the politics practised in Sri Lanka. Another example is 1983 riots during JR's time.

    They got natural justice decades ago.

    @Shan - what is good for the goose is NOT good for the gander. This is why we need two states in one country.

    Biggest culprits capital kotiraja and Dulanjoli are unscathed.

    Kabir Hashim Tuesday, 06 February 2024 02:08 AM

    What about Sirasa?

    Jagath Ekanaya Tuesday, 06 February 2024 02:44 AM

    Very sad. Sad because Ranil was not in it when it was burnt down. Better luck next time.

    Trooper Tuesday, 06 February 2024 01:53 PM

    This comment represents the section with twisted minds in our society.

    He should be awarded the patriots medal for service to the nation.

    Punchi Tuesday, 06 February 2024 06:10 AM

    He can argue that he was the agent of karmic retribution for RWs uncle JR burning of the Jaffna library and its historical ola manuscripts. Many of the surviving manuscripts are those acquired and taken during British rule and housed in the British foreign ministry library

    There are so many Tamil houses and businesses that were burnt down in 1983 riots by Sinhalese, will the same happen to catch the culprits of at least one house?

    මහ බැංකු හොරා Tuesday, 06 February 2024 06:14 AM

    How about torture at Batalanda?

    Idiot Tuesday, 06 February 2024 02:05 PM

    Why don't you take your evidence to courts? This type of low grade mud slinging will not take us anywhere.

    Jude Tuesday, 06 February 2024 07:15 AM

    Am disappointed, teacher couldn't get The chief occupant of the house!!

    Steve Tuesday, 06 February 2024 09:48 AM

    Shows the efficiency of the CID, from an incident in July 2022.

    Waco Tuesday, 06 February 2024 10:39 AM

    Before the house was set on fire Ranil had removed his cloths and books. He may get a good amount to rebuild his house.

    Troy Tuesday, 06 February 2024 02:01 PM

    Some of the comments here shows why we are in this mess today.

    He should get a medal.
