    Arrested today, given bail tomorrow. So the parade starts. Eventually, this whole fiasco will become a watershed and Law and Order n this Country will simply be a joke.

    It is not "will be" it has been a joke for decades and will be continued. I remember a recently retired CJ said cases will be heard continuously until a verdict is delivered. It never happened and we only see case after case getting postponed. We have a very weak and politically wilted legal system that makes poor to suffer and waste time going to courts for years .

    His future will depend on how many votes he could garner for the UNP. Also, though this Muslim dabbled in Narcotics, apparently there have been no traces of narcotics in this good Muslim's system. It was for others. Hence released or did they get deceived by his beard synonymous with Muslims and clerics.
