    Wonder why the Yahapalana Police doesn’t get the Field Marshall to say that Gota gave the order to kill Lasantha.

    Because the FM is very good at it,

    He even gave the statement on War Crimes of Nadesan getting blasted while waving his White Flag.

    And arranged Ms Pillai to get the ball rolling for the Bedouin Prince to set up the Hybrid Courts with White Judges.

    Then our poor Intelligence Unit who are already in Btalanada’s Remand Prison can go home.

    Unless this new one is a UNP mole planted by Srikotha Intelligence this time to nail Gota for good…

      This will not bring Lasntha back to life.

      So, if the the country does not want to have the death penalty, if found guilty, they can at least give life imprisonment with hard labor. Thre killer will still be living longer on this earth than Lasnatha.

    Field Marshal will lie to cover up his crimes. That man has no ethics and no morals. Everyone knows who ordered the hits in cahoots with whom. Field Marshal who now barks for his gay UNP masters will exact revebge by framing a case against GR.

    Ask Funny who ordered the attack on Keith Noyahr.

    This Intel operative will “suddenly ” die or “commit suicide” in customer at funny fonny’s Oscar winning acting when he starts spilling the beans on Funny.

      Some people can open their gob thanks to FM that gave them the freedom from fear. Before that they were creeping under the doormats looking for a place to hide from VP’s wrath.

    All across SL , our law and order officers are fully involved or have connivance with murders and frauds. That’s in their blood stream. Above them are the biggest top notch politicians. Including leaders of the country.
    Then come the youngster’s, who have got ample lot easy money , in SL or come home on holidays with refugee money. They are well involved with policemen for rape and murder innocent young females.
    Till all law and order officials are fixed SL will be cursed country! !!!
    Mr President and Prime minister, the task is yours.

    LW had his own agendas and was never a patriot!
    I have serious questions about his media ethics!
    But he still does not deserve to be executed for that!

      How do you measure a Patriot? One who had a deal to eliminate VP to give KP and the Masters a place and boast that he rid the country from a thirty year war?
