    Some of that money must have come from the US for trying to de-stabilise SL, similar to Sarath Fonseka, who had brand new dollar notes!!
    Hilary Clinton might have done something in this respect.. Afterall, it is all LieTTE money that they are giving to motivate these officials, including university lecturers, no from the US budget!!

    Anybody who did a crime must face the music whether rich or poor. The whole country knows about her and her family. She disgraced the seat of the chief justice by joinning with our enemies to the land. She deserves punishment. Our country is not belongs to one person or one family.We have to think of the country which we were born and serve it honestly and truthfully.
    If anyone wants to take revenge from the President or anyone they can do it seperately but not from the beloved land of ours. Do not give our enemies a chance to open their mouth against our Motherland. She did imense damage to the seat of the chief justice by going against the Government of Sri Lanka. Green bucks can do wonders with traitors to the Motherland.
