Hong Kong, Myanmar and now Sri Lanka. So what happened to those who named in the commission report? Are these people are the substitutes for those mentioned in the report?
Joshua Saturday, 24 April 2021 09:33 AM
main culprits and the politicians including former President who acted irresponsibly are not arrested. In SL aiding and abetting is more criminal than the perpetrators. All a mega drama by this Government. This kind of stories will go on for few more years and then by that time all would be dead and gone.

His name has been associated with the Easter Sunday from the beginning. But somehow each time he is arrested he gets away.

Government should punish the real people who were behind the attacks ,and not Harass people who they don’t like ,it’s a shame targeting all the voices of minority

happen to the $1 million received by Sirisena from Quart charity to hide perpetrators from prosecution .Then Rajapaksa’s cut a deal with Bathiudeen’s to look other way. Now all of a sudden they got arrested, because Cardinal is putting pressure to find the perpetrators.
