    Well my friend, what if this happened to a son of an ordinary citizen of this country? The son would be blamed for inappropriate behaviour towards the police officers and punished!

    No investigation for an ordinary citizen.

    Nice timing Mr. Minister. It coincides with the UNHRC session.

    Senaka Friday, 26 February 2021 07:42 PM

    Law in action very quickly for influential people. Can you please follow the same for ordinary people. Shame.

    Buddhist Friday, 26 February 2021 08:01 PM

    Is the interdiction only until UNCHR is over? Then Nidos Kota Nidahas. This is a HR violation.

    If the rule is applied throughout the country, how many officers will be have to go? Nice act and good timing.
