    Creating dead-ends appear to be a way of closing the Inquiry – as the CID does
    not have much confidence in winning a Case in Courts, these days!

    I do not believe that he pulled the trigger. Gotabhaya would spill the beans under interrogation in the Srilankan way. But, he and his siblings and nephews have amassed enough money to buy the whole country. No wonder they want to come to power again.

      Hey LTTE dude. You made a mistake in your post that shows who you are. I am not correcting it. But Sri Lankans know.

      We should bring all you diaspora dogs that selected suicide bombing targets, funded those bombings had parties watching videos of civilians- to courts for crimes against humanity.

      Gotabaya protected us and freed us from 30 yrs of terror. Terror in the name of glorified Tamil culture!. Have you seen the babies killed by tamil racist ethnic cleansing LTTE- I am sure you have in videos provided by LTTE.

    Mr. Vass Gunawardana and his son obtain SILL at every POYA day. Mr. Vass studying ABHIDHARMA perhaps we never know they both MAY become buddhist monks and finally attend NIRVANA. there are many buddhist stories like this I learn when I was Sunday schooling IN VAVUNIA..

    Those who responsible for that barbaric act must be rot in jail.

    Thambi – Divine retribution is fine BUT not verbal retribution sought by those with their tongues in Cheek
