Notorious underworld figure Janith Madushanka, operating under the alias ‘Podi Lassie’, who was arrested and remanded for threatening the VIPs, has been granted bail.

However, he will continue to be held by the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) on detention orders.

The Galle Magistrate delivered the order when the suspect was produced before court today (16).

During the proceeding, it was revealed in open court that ‘Podi Lassie’ had used cosmetic products which weighed up to 5kg in total, while in remand custody at the high-security prison in Boossa. The focus of the judicial members fell on how the products were smuggled into a maximum-security jail.

It is further reported that an overseas travel ban was imposed on the infamous criminal figure.

‘Podi Lassie’ was named as the second suspect in the case filed over the death threats made in public at the Boossa Prison, against the President, the Defence Secretary and certain high-ranking officers of the Prisons Department.

    It seems strange that this apparent ‘show threat’ by a few drug addicts and drug peddlers against the ‘worthy’ in Sri Lanka got heard so quickly through the judicial process.

    This is while the Central Bank Bond Scams which defrauded a whole population, led to increased interest rates and increses in taxes remain unheard. Various Commissions of Inquiry – UNP Lawyers Inquiry, two Cope Committee Reports, another Presidential Committe of Inquirey that was shelved by Sirisena away from People’s scrutiny and due process.

    Ravi Karunanayake’s money laundering case is still outstanding for over 5 years! The case against ‘hanging judges’ is still outstanding!

    Absconding from law enforcement by petty criminals was common. However this is now done by parliamentarians, the law makers of the country. However we do not see any retribution for having done so. The current lawmaker in question is Rishard Bathiudeen. He is preceded by Ravi Karunanayake, Rajitha Senaratne both one time Cabinet Ministers and Sampayo himself a law enforcement officer.

    Many things seems to be really rotten in Lanka, the land of serendipity!

    This is because some are more equal than others in our balu culture.
