    If the job of AG is to release the murderers, thugs, crooks, fraudsters, gangsters etc, might as well eliminate the legal proceedings!

    Why on earth we have them?

    AG on a role releasing suspects at a rate. Is he trying to reduce the large no of cases pending in court houses?

    Where was he when the 08 year old child got caught robbing coconuts...

    There is no point of having a police in Sri Lanka. We should abolish both Police and AG department (May include court as well), which we can save some money

    If the Attorney General can release murder suspects in this fashion why have the Police and the legal system in this country.
