    After nine months? Says a lot about the justice system or lack of it in SL!

    What Ranil can do with Easter Sunday attack because he had not been invited to the National Security council during the tenure of his period as Prime Minister.

    Recording statements and appointing committees is all what is happening. No action taken to any of the cases in Sri Lanka. No one is held accountable and all the wrong doers are free. What a pathetic country!

    Chinese wanted Rajapakshas on power for their own benefit? They conduct covert operations in many countries for their benefit. Could it be a covert operation of Chinese executed via Tamil Nadu extremist group. ISIS will not attack SL that's for sure.

    I hope CID grilled Ranil well to get to the bottom of it and do the same with Sirisena
