    I am still awaiting the publication of the Postmortem Report on the body of Lasantha W.
    From the day this government assumed power,PM Reports have been kept a secret.
    Why is the question.

      The postmortem report won’t come out to the public and neither will his killers be prosecuted until this government is gone.
      If the unp come back into power then 1000000% they will make sure there is justice

    I sincerely wish that I could participate and be with all of you; I will light a candle and a lamp for him. We need to keep his memory alive!

    What a waste of a Human Life, snuffed long before Time? May those responsible and their offspring, suffer immensely before they die.

      Vengeance Gamini is a double edged sword. I do understand how you feel, however we must find other ways to move forward. Vengeance can take us backward.

    All we can do is to pray for him, hope not Wadakayas would interupt them as was the case for the previous peace candle vigil held in Cmbo a couple of months ago.

    This is another big black mark for srilanka.Another reason why the noose will tighten every year around the Rajapakshe’s necks.Imagine the purple shawl being used to throttle,that is what will happen one day because they are thumbing their noses at everybody and going on in their merry way.The lasantha murder will never go away and may be the final nail in the coffin one day.

      Rubbish! The UNP had Richard de Zoysa, another well known media man murdered. What effect did it have on Lanka?

        i don’t think Richard had the prominence of lasantha.Also i think he had friendly relations with JVP which would have not made him popular in western circles.Lasantha of course was their blue eyed boy and will not be forgotten.lasantha fought fearlessly against government whether Chandrika or mahinda and built up a name as a fearless person who exposed malpractices and corruption.I don’t think Richard was in that category and also lasnatha’s murder falls into a circle of large unaccounted murders and missing people which warrants an international investigation.The number of media personnel who have been killed ,beaten up,abducted and missing and chased out of the country is staggering.So you got to look at the complete picture with lasnatha’s murder like the beacon leading the rest.

          Agree you can never compare Lasantha Wickrematunge with dezoysa maybe vijaya kumaratunga but Lasantha was the most influential voice in the country and galvanized the opposition he was the bread and butter of the unp and was the face of media in Sri Lanka he will be honored forever and will remain a top class act forever

    May his soul continue to rest in peace. Although his killers were known to Lasantha and to the rest of the world they will never be caught not because they are so elusive but because they are powerful. Bensen

    When Gota was questioned by a foreign journalist about Lasantha’s murder, Gota had the audacity to ask, who is Lasantha? That was the level of impunity of this MF displayed.

    Let these buggers rot before they die. Let their deaths be slow and painful. Let their families be blessed with deformed offspring. BBS there is no other way to move forward, without these buggers paying for what they have done.
