    Mr AG – This is your moment to do your part on behalf of SL people who have placed enormous trust in your office.!!

      Working in the middle east for over 35 years and from the savings I invested in a
      property, soon after I left the tax officials were after me asking where I got the funds. This only shows that the tax department is looking for scapegoats like me
      and not the high and mighty who plunder the nation.
      Disadvantages of being a Sri Lankan in Sri Lanka:
      Being honest and a minority.

    AG is corrupt and a Mahinda Jarapassa stooge so nothing will happen!

    Sajin Vass was released from prison and there is a tall story that he will be a State witness against Jarapassa – its wheels within wheels, corruption within corruption.

    The entire political-judicial system of the Miracle of Modayas is rotten to the core!

    Why could not the authorities probe on Sajin Vaas Wealth? I know personally he did not have money even to buy a bicycle leaving aside a motor bicycle. He was thrown out from Trico and was jailed twice for playing out his Korean partner and also for bigamy!!
    He has amassed wealth and now his mother is treated in Singapore and living in his apartment owned by him.
    The authorities should check how he amassed such wealth
