  1. srilanka attorney general department is politicizes. the same as last regime.it is a disgraced to the present government.. game in power in august last month 30 ministers has no place to sit but same time no work it is a tax money

    Must be a thick skinned crony who supported the Maharajah like the former CJ who was removed from his post

    What the hell is the AG doing . The SC judge has tarnished the little respect people had for an independent judiciary. He should be impeached and sent to jail if proven guilty

  4. Leon

    Attorney Generals office is a disgrace. None of these investigations ever get processed and dealt with by AG’s office. This clearly shows the degree of good governance and honesty of Sirisena & Ranil.. How long can they hoodwink the
    voters.

    As usual, the AG’s Dept. is selectively inefficient.

    This is misreporting , How can a person be found guilty before a trial.

    It is being observed very seriously and at a loss as to what maligned malady is gripping the AG and his lopsided Department, in failing constantly and acting to perform their assigned duties. The AG’s Dept is constantly and very reasonably
    accused of wanton negligence, lethargy and procrastination as regards to selected persons and cases.When initial enquiries have been completed and document forwarded to them for instructions, for no valid reasons the AG and his lethargic Dept is delaying issuing instructions. Oh Why! People and God know,ugly lucre is dominating.
