  1. Some TV and media are creating an image that misappropriating public money amounts to Nationalism and heroism. Definitely they must be part of the game. Law must be passed to give recognition to this effect.

  2. As long as corrupt judges in Sri Lanka these crooks are out of jail. Sri Lanka need to expel these corrupt judges first before arrest these crooks
