  1. Attorney General (AG) Dappula de Livera Should be prepared to explain to an International legal panel, how he allowed a highly politicized so called “Bond Scam” case more propaganda than an actual crime, for a legal case to have existed let alone dragged on this long while wrongly holding citizens in custody!!? ICC hope you are following this??
