    Too many murderers entering the hallowed precincts of Parliament these days. Good people have no place there now.

    Hettiarachchi Wednesday, 19 June 2013 08:35 AM

    It is a shame on the people who have voted this type of people to Parliament.

    Sanjay Karuna Wednesday, 19 June 2013 08:42 AM

    Ravi Wednesday, 19 June 2013 10:54 AM

    This guy was never well enough to attend a court hearing for murder but well enough to enjoy the 5 star diet and comforts of parliament .He probably got a new brain transplant. Makes you sick.

    VoiceOfLanka Wednesday, 19 June 2013 01:31 PM

    Are we really wearing any cloths when we lecture World bodies than we are treating every citizen alike and law and order is 'steadily taking root'?

    Rahmathullah M. H. Wednesday, 19 June 2013 10:54 AM

    MR & Co can never answer why they still support this type of thugs.

    Dumi Wednesday, 19 June 2013 01:37 PM

    I forgot everything....

    Critic Roshan Thursday, 20 June 2013 05:33 AM

    Sure, I did not know it was you the Driver of Duminda.

    Bandara Manik Wednesday, 19 June 2013 11:02 AM

    What a joke, by the way it is not a tragedy according the "spin doctor". It is murder and mayhem during day light.

    Minister Wednesday, 19 June 2013 11:03 AM

    Did his able lawyer also accompany him with a POP skull for the debate in the parliament?

    bal Wednesday, 19 June 2013 01:41 PM

    Fassey Thursday, 20 June 2013 05:57 AM

    C.K.Lankaputhra Wednesday, 19 June 2013 08:51 AM

    Police murder suspects interdicted. Parliament murder suspect in Parliament. That is five star democracy in Sri lanka.

    Maza Wednesday, 19 June 2013 08:53 AM

    The suspect had been granted leave! But he should have been suspended during this period.This is the political joke..

    fool Wednesday, 19 June 2013 11:11 AM

    weir Thursday, 20 June 2013 06:07 AM

    let us get this straight
    mulleriyawa was not a tragedy. it was a criminal activity carried out by politicians and their supporters including this one who has selective amnesia

    piyal Wednesday, 19 June 2013 11:21 AM
