    The man who undertook to be responsible for this debacle is relaxing at home after destroying his party and the country. His supposed to be deputy, an absolutely brain dead man, also does not utter a word.

    Under these circumstances we can only say “pigs will fly” if what this ‘pin amathi’ says realizes.

    Irrespective of ones political leanings every one committing wrongs should be brought to justice. I can’t trust them when some are released on bail to seek hospital treatment anywhere but the others are not. I am very concerned for the safety and welfare of SSP Shany Abesekara.Likes of Ali s can’t be trusted to do a job when there are double standards in the justice system
