    Sapu Wednesday, 14 October 2015 12:00 PM

    Will this ever happen under MR regime when Wele Suda was living in the mansions of politicians?

    Sammy Wednesday, 14 October 2015 12:04 PM

    What about rapists and murderers. Will such swift capital punishment be delivered to them also.

    Keep an eye on officers of small South Asian origin ships that frequent our region.

    Aruna Wednesday, 14 October 2015 12:42 PM

    So many crimes are done by people and escape from being behind bars. This is not a fair judgment imposing death sentence for possessing of 7.05 grams of heroin.

    ibadun Wednesday, 14 October 2015 12:51 PM

    What a joke. This amount of drugs is only the tip of the iceberg. Much, much more has been , both, smuggled in and out of the country in a well organised manner, and is known to key administrators. In some of the raids, concerning various valuable items, in many cases, only what is sufficient for prosecution and promotion merits, are produced and the rest is either pilfered or diverted to the pockets of certain people. The Peliyagoda policeman involved in such a case, is also the tip of the huge dump. These statistics are only good for bedtime stories.

    Since the death sentence has not been sanctioned as yet, those sentenced to death should be kept in isolation to feel the pain that victims faced because of them. Leaving them in the open with the other prisoners will not serve the purpose.

    7.05Grams only??? Others would have got spilt while bringing to Courts. When will the Courts Order be Executed???

    LogicalCitizen Wednesday, 14 October 2015 01:03 PM

    Remember it iwas GR who had him caught in Karachchi and brought down to SL. Ironically he landed in Colombo on 9th Jan. We must not be afraid to give due credit.

    sunnyg Wednesday, 14 October 2015 01:07 PM

    Come on now Suda, spit all out

    Ravi Wednesday, 14 October 2015 01:12 PM

    mara bloody joke no for 7.05 grams you become a drug kingpin.

    DMS Wednesday, 14 October 2015 01:27 PM

    D and M Silva must having Night Mares now -

    mack Wednesday, 14 October 2015 01:30 PM

    Will this punishment ever give ?????????????? DOUBTFUL/////////////

    K. C. John Thursday, 15 October 2015 10:45 AM

    Al Capone was eventually jailed for proven tax evasion although it was known that he was behind many murders, drug deals and bootlegging, all of which could not be proved.

    UJ Thursday, 15 October 2015 09:39 PM

    According to the Poisons, Opium and Other Dangerous Drugs Ordinance, any person who is in possession of 2g from heroin will be punished with death. So the law has been upheld.

    antidrug Thursday, 15 October 2015 11:57 AM

    drug lords are specialist in hiding evidence thats why its very hard to prosecute them for the actual crimes commited in a court of law, in the end the final verdict which is the highest possible punishment that was given to him so it doesnt matter if it was 1000 kg or 1g justice has been served

    simon Wednesday, 14 October 2015 03:22 PM

    yes it is a joke.Possessing just 7,05 grams and took 7 years to prosecute.
