  1. It is a very good lesson for turncoats, stooges, who wash dirty linen on behalf of their masters will experience last. All their power, cushy life will never ever last long. at last they all end up in jail.

  2. Finally they arrested someone worthy. This guy should be hanged, hes a terrorist. He was used for the war and now we dump him. Maybe Ranil has started growing a spine

  3. Lots of people sacrificed their life to redeem this country from terrorism. Seems like everything is going to be in vain. The foreign powers are truly back in their game; looks like they are the winners. Redeeming the country from terrorism vs misuse of vehicle; it is a joke isn’t it?
