    Arrest him on arrival on the basis o. The myriad of crimes committed. The only state housing he should get is prison. As he resigned he does not qualify for benefits.

    Hopefully from the airport straight to the gallow.

    BuffaloaCitizen Tuesday, 26 July 2022 01:26 PM

    Not in Sri Lanka, the 69% ignorant yakkos still worship this rascal.

    Lumbini Tuesday, 26 July 2022 12:00 PM

    As expected.

    Daza Jaya Tuesday, 26 July 2022 12:05 PM

    Ex President should have full protection to live a free and productive life. Unfair hounding should be treated with contempt. If he has broken any laws, due process should be followed to prosecute him.

    Mizaru Tuesday, 26 July 2022 12:08 PM

    Ranil will be there to welcome come him. Nice!

    Tissa Fernando Tuesday, 26 July 2022 12:10 PM

    Welcome.

    Curious Tuesday, 26 July 2022 12:15 PM

    No issues. 6.9m will look after.

    Tak Tik Tuk Tuesday, 26 July 2022 12:17 PM

    Lion Tuesday, 26 July 2022 12:21 PM

    Welcome back Sir.

    Patriot Tuesday, 26 July 2022 12:22 PM

    Why not?

    Colvin Wijeyeardena Tuesday, 26 July 2022 12:23 PM

    I hope necessary action will be taken and CBSL will start on bond scam matters while the opposition will follow up action without getting in to deals with this man or Rajapaksas.

    TONI Tuesday, 26 July 2022 12:27 PM

    WHO ASKED GOTA TO BOLT? IS HE FIT TO FACE THE PROTESTS OR WILL RANIL HIS SURVIVOR, PREVENT PROTESTS?

    Lanka putha Tuesday, 26 July 2022 12:28 PM

    Thanks. So is that why our new president cleaning galle face.

    homeless refuge Tuesday, 26 July 2022 12:28 PM

    Welcome back saar! We missed you dearly!

    R S Tuesday, 26 July 2022 12:33 PM

    Descendants of Jaffna Tamils are very powerful in Singapore. So, Singapore was never going to work for Gota.

    Hassanda Tuesday, 26 July 2022 12:36 PM

    Dont fool the Public Bandula Mahajanaya Gonnu Nemai There is a Arrest Warrant in Singapore For the Murderer Gota His days are numbered

    Ranil's deal Tuesday, 26 July 2022 12:38 PM

    Arin Fernando resign and let him enter Parliament.

    Lion Tuesday, 26 July 2022 12:39 PM

    So nowhere to go

    BuffaloaCitizen Tuesday, 26 July 2022 01:30 PM

    Not only Gota, all those involved in war crimes cannot step out of the country other than to China, Burma, Pakistan, Iran, NKorea etc... Last encounter of our Defence Secy Kamal Gunaratne in Brazil is an example where he just escaped by a whisker from International arrest.

    Ahamed Tuesday, 26 July 2022 12:50 PM

    He tried for the USA rejected, then private Visit by using a private jet, what a lucky family everything FREE from public money.

    MirakRajBanda Tuesday, 26 July 2022 01:04 PM

    #GotaComeHome and stright to the prison.

    Helaya Tuesday, 26 July 2022 01:05 PM

    Arrest him immediately

    BuffaloaCitizen Tuesday, 26 July 2022 01:07 PM

    Gota cannot survive in any country for long on crimes he has committed. Only safe place is Sri Lanka where like minded corrupt thuggish yakko type criminals are found.

    Meera Tuesday, 26 July 2022 01:32 PM

    Hay Bandula, GR was chased from Maldives and he went to Singapore seeking shelter, there too he was chased and no other country he could go as he will be arrested that is why he is coming to Sri Lanka. When he comes we will deal with him once again.

    Dr. Terrence Fernando Tuesday, 26 July 2022 01:34 PM

    Bandula you are still washing clothes to Gota, if you want to survive shut your dirty mouth and do something useful than uttering nonesones.

    Bannis Mama Wednesday, 27 July 2022 09:05 AM

    Bandu Mama, please arrange the coffin and some wreaths for Gota when he lands Sri Lanka, not a joke.

    Sothy Sulthan Wednesday, 27 July 2022 09:07 AM

    Bandula you told Gota went to spend 14 days holidays in Singapore, well we will have to give you a cow dung juice to clean your mouth.

    Thitha Atha Wednesday, 27 July 2022 09:12 AM

    Bandula you are now leaning with Ranil and still washing clothes to Rajapakshes shameless idiot you are.

    TONI Wednesday, 27 July 2022 09:12 AM

    WILL HE TRAVEL BY PRIVATE JET OR COME BY A NORMAL SCHEDULED FLIGHT?

    Dayawathie Wednesday, 27 July 2022 09:12 AM

    Shouldn't have left Srlanka in the first place no matter what.

    Andare Wednesday, 27 July 2022 09:20 AM

    With the two- third majority in Parliament the Constitution can be changed to enable Gota to withdraw his resignation and continue as President ?

    Ajeeranaya Thursday, 28 July 2022 07:07 AM

    Kewa madiwata, ithuru tikath kanneda?????
