    Yes. It is kumanthiranayak. Ranil kept lost passport and given to him to carry. What a fool he is.

    This must have been a yet another KUMANTHRANAYA by the UNP with the support of US

    He should be suspended from the parliament for bringing disrepute. But hold on... How about the other rogues in the parliament ?

    Rohan Saturday, 24 October 2015 07:44 AM

    Why does he need so many idiots to accompany him to courts? Is he scared for Law? Times changed now pay for your sin Wimal. Show your character whether you are a hero or a zero?

    This is disgusting behaviour by the "so called" Yahapalanaya thugs. It is because Wimal has the courage to speak out against the traitorous acts of this government.

    Wimal is a national hero - CIA was behind the whole episode

    Can an ordinary citizen be released on bail on a similar charge

    chux Friday, 23 October 2015 06:28 PM

    If it happens to a normal innocent person things would have been worst .But this kind of people who does not practice displine and does not respect laws talk always patriotism what a joke.

    Police state in full action, But magistrate at negombo is different to Colombo. Yamapalana dance more to come

    ramesh Saturday, 24 October 2015 10:42 AM

    Why was he released.Its a crime travelling with forged passport and to have a second one.What if we have done the same mistake.The court would have sentenced for 15 days till the next hearing. The idiots who voted for him are still be living him.This is the sad part of our Citizens called SRI LANKANS.

    The authorities seemed to have checked only the passport and not his baggage.

    Perumal Friday, 23 October 2015 08:27 PM

    He had the courage to exit on an invalid passport, too.

    Tamilan Friday, 23 October 2015 09:27 PM

    look like he want to claim "ASYLAM" some where in western countries to enjoy the money he made from the MR regime government. This is an easy way to get a citizen status in another western country, later he will get a dual citizen to come back to Sri Lanka. one or the other he and his friends to find a place to enjoy the bundles of money they have. He is very smart person, good luck!!!

    mark Saturday, 24 October 2015 11:44 AM

    Oh! This is international kumantaranayak.Will this be the same if this has been by a normal citizen? A person trying to travel on invalid passport is a serious crime. If a normal citizen caught he has to be behind bars for weeks. Is this the rule of this country.

    What has yahapalanaya got to do with his criminal actvities - he covered up all his sins by joining MR and now exposed for the criminal he is.

    sanju Saturday, 24 October 2015 12:31 PM

    My goodness where are the mobs to cheer him ? Maybe there wasnt time to organise it ......

    Pillaiar Friday, 23 October 2015 10:26 PM

    Do you hv common sense. Why you link this crime with yahapalanaya. You mean to say this is not an offence. Still MR clans are around the country waiting for bones.

    Aquarius Friday, 23 October 2015 11:02 PM

    Are you serious? What has yahapalanaya got to do with trying to travel with invalid passports?

    malik Saturday, 24 October 2015 12:55 PM
