    “Start with the Bribery Commission as to who issued the order to question MR and Gota?”

    Yes,i agree with you,very fishy indeed to question mahinda for a portfolio given to a crossover MP.mahinda is hollering what did he do wrong and the people will be wondering too.

    first the bribery commission that was sleeping for 10 long years should be cleaned up from head to bottom.In fact all their assets must be checked first.These guys are obviously MR moles.A new bribery commission should be set up.The attorney general also a MR mole should be sacked.new appointees to the commission are okay,but the old ones are obviously MR stooges.

    Backlash,

    Thanks for your response. I suppose you are right.

    Lets hope that the present government will be able to bring all those corrupt individuals to book eventually.

    Sri Lankans obviously will have to believe in and support the present government to the fullest.

    Mara and his cronies have a cult like following (mostly deranged and frustrated people) who are ready to defend and protect the monster against all logic and decency.

    Mara has played with peoples hearts and minds using cheap tricks and gimmicks so much so, that a fair portion of our society has ended up with twisted minds.

    This has to stop. We have to stand firm.

    Is this a real arrest or a CARDIAC ARREST. He will spend time in a 5 Star Hospital.

    Finally Basil ended up in the paying ward of merchants’ colombo hospital. This rogue should remain in the prison and not in a hospital blocking poor patients slot for a hospital bed. All this was possible because Wijedasa Rajapakse was soft peddling with these rogues. I believe viewers would have seen the news first video clip yesterday where Susil Premjayatha spoke to Wijedasa on phone to get Basil transferred from prison to merchants ward, conversation recorded by the Sirasa News first cameraman. I live in Maharagama, I will teach this wijedasa bugger a good lesson in the next parliamentary election.

      Kumarage,

      This man Wijedasa Rajapaksa is not an honest person. He has enough skeletons in his cupboard. One is how he got the marks of his daughter altered fraudulently to pass as a Lawyer. There are many other leading Lawyers who have sought the services of the Corrupt as former Principal Law College Rodrigue to get their offspring to enter Law College and then pass as Lawyers using influence.

      Although Basil is in a private paying ward, its like being in the public system because he is paying with public money which he is accused of taking.
      So the joke is on the voter for getting screwed twice. :)
