    He may be already 50+

    He will say good bye to planet earth before he ends his Initial 37y punishment.

    Nobody will pay this Rs 13m in such a situation.

    How clever is the Judge!! Mother Lanka lost the opportunity of recovering the loss made by this man to the state.

    Don’t know if this judge has passed maths in GCE OL at least.

    Yet, he is called “Hamuduruwo”

    What a funny world!!
