    mr is thinking nothing will happen to him what ever miner things such as rape, robbery, corruption, drugs, even more becouse china and russia with him

    So this is exactly what makes them click and rape another day. Rape and child abuse should be made non-bailable and the guilty must be castrated- there is no other way. Likewise, behead a couple of murderers and all such crime will end overnight. Period.

    Little incidents overblown.All 21 suspects should be given bail.Rapes are common and minor incidents int the area.

    Just disgusting.......

    This is Rape, you ape, there should not be any escape.

    Janaki Kalansuriya Saturday, 04 August 2012 02:33 AM

    Yes, like he actually meant it!! He should start by cleaning his own house. Let us see what he plans to do with the two Silvas. Then we can believe in MR's commitment to law and order.

    what an insensitive and vulgar comment. Show some compassion and hide your ignorance. Even a grown man would not have been able to handle that situation. What did you expect the 14yr old to do?

    alex Saturday, 04 August 2012 04:56 AM

    of course all of them should be given bail

    otherwise how can they make Tangalle the wonder of the country

    Yes, very true until someone in your family suffer the same experience, rape and murders are minor points. Damn Sri Lankans only understand things, when it happen to themselves. They do not have brains to relate things and see the big picture.

    Enjoying the peace????? What peace? Now we are constantly battling another war. Having to survive from the rapists, murderers, thieves, and the horrible maniac drivers.

    bandara Saturday, 04 August 2012 06:58 AM

    terrorism was wiped out after 30 years but the crimes are going for 60 years and will continue

    dalu Banda Saturday, 04 August 2012 07:55 AM

    what about Amare Malli?

    Gamini Saturday, 04 August 2012 08:49 AM

    Chandrapala says that people are now enjoying 'piece'. I wonder which 'piece' is enjoyed by people. I do not think any good citizens in SL have peace of mind.

    Cant you see the sarcasm in the comment by buffalo citizen?

    Jagath Leanage Saturday, 04 August 2012 03:02 PM

    Ladies and small girls in Tangalle, be carful . Nine had come out .Keep your gates and doors locked.

    roshan Saturday, 04 August 2012 03:27 PM

    all the time war is in front ha...We wont be misled by so called war

    Matalan Monday, 06 August 2012 05:20 AM

    CHANDRAPALA was merely being sarcastic.

    Shiran Friday, 03 August 2012 03:09 PM

    If you pay 1 lak you can buy a genuine passport on different identity in SL, we all know that....no time these culprits will go out of the country and when they return to SL in 6 months they will not remember anything same as our duminda case.

    Thats ok. They will mingle with all the criminals already outside.

    Zulfikar Friday, 03 August 2012 12:39 PM

    Case Closed...

    Kalu Sudda Friday, 03 August 2012 01:11 PM

    Once convicted is it possible to cut it off?

    kumudu Friday, 03 August 2012 02:17 PM

    Rape would have been a small one. In the past big rapes were considered in public for long prosecution.

    ceylonI Friday, 03 August 2012 02:52 PM

    All these 21 suspects should be hung from their .................

    Nodrog Friday, 03 August 2012 03:05 PM

    Triple blessed country??? More like triple cursed for the ordinary citizens.

    buffaloa citizen Friday, 03 August 2012 11:57 AM

    According to the President these are minor offences. So according to the new policy not only this 9 but all 21 suspects should be released, so that they can imediately take up positions in State Departments. The Girls needs to be sent to Angoda for allowing 21 persons to rape her.

    CHANDRAPALA Friday, 03 August 2012 03:39 PM

    All are minor points. why do people worry about these rape and murders ? Think about the thirty years long terrorism which was wiped out by this government forever from this soil. Now people are enjoying the piece.

    citizen junior Friday, 03 August 2012 04:30 PM

    buffaloas do not understand human languages-- MR said he feel ashamed that this type of heneous crime takes place in his home town

    Rupert Vanderkoon Friday, 03 August 2012 04:41 PM

    You want that little girl to fight with 21 grown up men and escape? Be reasonable in your wild comments.

    Sampath Friday, 03 August 2012 05:02 PM

    Rest will be released on next court day.

    manjula Friday, 03 August 2012 08:54 PM

    Anybody know which case is this. So many cases and rapes are from presidents home town only............miracle of Asia.............

    Rape and murder are minor offences, that people blow out of proportion.

    Slight reduction in respect of the judiciary is a major crime.

    Whats going on in this country?
