    Swindling is nothiong new to the Sri Lankans. When the top Politicians could swindle foreign Tsunmai Aid this is only a pea nut. This is main progress Sri Lanka has made after independence

    Whatever said and done, the media in Sri Lanka is generally fair and circumspect when compared to that in much more developed countries. The law in Sri Lanka, however long it takes and however convoluted the path, will also take its course and justice will prevail.

    It is sad to even think that public officials in exhalted positions stooped so low as to steal, particularly in a poor country like Sri Lanka.

    May justice prevail.

    Well done Sri Lanka, It has taken six years to get these culprits to books, but who knows for how long it would be in the books as the politicians are also involved.These culprits needs Arab punishment, no mercy and immediately.God save Sri Lanka and its economy,we cant afford any more.

    N.B.Please do not involve sri lankan politicians with these type of frauds as they are saints.

    These culprits should be hung. How many sri lankans do not have money to eat at least two times a day. These criminals working in the government sector enjoy all the benefits. See how they have done their job. Inland Revenue Dept is a hell of a mess. Most of employees are millioners while some are billionaires. How these guys are earning this money?. Corruptions and frauds. When a genuine person goes to get their service they are too smart. I remember I had to go there 4 times to get my EPF money, after my 25 years service to public sector, but they harassed me and finally I had to go to a deputy commissioner to tell my grievances.

    If we have a good tax collection system country can get more money for its development

    Other than the Anti-UPFA newspapers, no one else knows the actual culprits. Its only the SUSPECTS who are being questioned, there is no proof even to keep them in jail for a long time let alone HANGing.
