Two Sri Lankans were arrested at the Bandaranaike International Airport (BIA) yesterday while attempting to smuggle in four gold slabs worth Rs.10.5 million that they had brought down from Bangkok, Thailand, Customs spokesman Leslie Gamini said.


Customs investigations revealed that one of the suspects had two gold bars weighing 500 grammes each strapped to his legs using gum tape, while the other had two concealed gold bars weighing 500 grammes and 100 grammes in his hand luggage, Mr. Gamini said. The two suspects, aged 26 and 37, from Akurana in Kandy, had been arrested at the arrival lounge of the BIA.

    These are the scum bags people go and vote for and think they are pretty intelligent.

    Police act impartially if the victim is an ordinary citizen. Anyway do not blame the Police for their action.

    Asokamala Saturday, 20 September 2014 09:25 AM

    Yes according to media operating within the country.

    " Assaulted at the Police Station"
    Police should have shot this thug dead then and there.
    Note with regret, no educated gentlemen like DS, Dudley, Sir John, SWRD, and JR to rule the Country.

    Wait till the police inquiries are over. Ajith Rohana will then come on tv and tell the truth.

    Cowards smell defeat. These are the type of scums our people vote for.

    Until there is a miracle to normalise the Sri Lankan brain, they will continue to vote for whom has hurt them most - It's a curse.

    One can imagine what the regime will resort to, to prevent defeat at a national election. God save Sri Lanka!
