    • That doesnt mean he can sell our public property like his own. Our supreem court is fake.Jujments are ditermind by president on his favour. Drug dealing is done by ministers with blessings of president , This is the most ruthless regime in the history of lanka. people like prabhakaran will be there again to take the revange. Where are the human rights? If you speak against the dictatorship you will be distroied. There is no democracy in lanka at all.

    • Mr Mongol Nihal,The former Army Commander and his brave solders defeated the terrorism.Rajapaksha bros are only courageous for steeling public money.
      Wait and see….and when you go back home,you may not have enough money to spent there since the the cost of living is going rocket high.

      I feel sorry for your kids for having a stupid father like YOU!
