    Every one who steals and cheats are not found guilty only in Sri Lanka. That's why we are called like "no other country" that's for real.

    This fellow is a big crook who has earned enough while he was the monster of fisheries later as the minister of housing and construction. He appiont his catchers as board of directors to corporations and play around.

    Hora Dantaya is safe again! They will never be guilty in any robberies or thefts! Very sad and ugly side of politics and justice system! When the people can eradicate this and punish all culprits who ruled the country since 1948 (whether live or dead)!
