    From the days of Richard De Zoysa, I dont think the Sri Lankan police has cracked a single murder case. Every time someone gets killed it become another unsolved mystery. Our police force is a joke.

    Typical Sri Lankan justice = no justice.

    In Sri Lanka politicians and policemen are criminals and both are above the law.

    Premadasa deserved his gory death for ordering the torture and murder of Richard de Zoysa.

    Sri Lanka will remain a banana republic ruled by criminals and cheats even after the ethnic problem is solved.

    The political and justice system in the country is rotten to the core. The poor and the voiceless will continue to suffer the injustices meted out to them by the politicians and the people with money and power.

    No justice to the victims? Are the culprits still living? His mother is also not alive? All fight she undertook is of wane. Now who will fight for justice and bring the culprits to justice?

    Just take this year alone and I will throw some examples that come to the top of my head now like Kadirkamar, Sivaram, Charles Wijewardene, Muthalif etc. These were all high profile killings mostly in Colombo. Sivaram was even kidnapped in front of a police station and body found near the parliament. Not one person convicted. That is the disastarous situation of the police/justice system in Sri Lanka. Absolutely useless!
