    whoever working for the regime at the time of Lasantha’s Murder are responsible for it. If anyone wants to come clear of it and want to wash his hands should disclose what happened not only to Lasantha but to the container loads of money and jewelry that were taken from the LTTE terrorists.
    If anyone believe in a superior power that created us all then they should realize that the same fate that fell on LTTE could fall on them because those wealth belong to entire Sri Lankans.

    Hm, what’s new in sunny Sri Lanka? It’s very sad but not shocking. Only God can save our beautiful country.

    If General had any hand in Lasantha’s murder by now General would have been in jail. But these dirty brothers know they can not create any false evidence against the General that it will boomerang back to them.

    Most of the Rajapaksa bashers on this subject, I am afraid,
    are barking up the wrong tree. They only failed in pinning
    down Fonseka because those who heeded his orders refused and
    refused to talk.

    At the end of the day, the truth must prevail. Not simply
    assumptions and conjectures. One day it will. Fonseka, it must
    be remembered, is a hero for defeating the LTTE but a Dr. Jekyll
    and Mr Hyde personality. A hero who is a villain when it comes
    to matters extra legal, extra judicial and extra normal. STOP

    I agree with insider.Some of comments (not to
    insult those who have written them) are far
    too presumptuous. As he says, the truth will
    prevail, at least one day, though people like
    Jesudason are dead.
