    The World can see the real face of the GOSL,It is filled with different kind of criminals..from top to bottom..

    Only in Sri Lanka, this kind of magic can happen...A CONVICTED KILLER RELEASED..Behind this drama,millions of money and crooked people involved..He is identify as a big drug smuggler,but he was relaeased...This can only happen in south..may be he is the Friend of `Chindana` & his criminal gangs..

    Similar things will happen even under the Presidency of MR. It happened under JRJ, RP, DBW and CBK. It will continue to happen till the Executive President decides to refrain from signing the document commuting a `Death Sentence` with the `Death Penalty` to a `Life Term`.

    All those persons recently convicted with the `Death Sentence` by the Galle High Court and given quite a lot of publicity in the local media, will also not be hanged. The `Death Penalty` in SL has not been in operation since 1976 when `Maru Sira` alias Siripala of Thalawa, Anuradhapura was the last to see the Hangman at the Bogambara Prisons in Kandy.

    This is just one instance and nothing controversial at all. If a convicted murderer can walk away after sitting for 10 years in prison, why cannot a convicted drug runner walk away after 6 years? What is the controversy here?

    All `Death Sentences` are commuted to `Life Terms` under the hand of the Executive President and any convicted murderer or any other such as a drug runner given the `Death Sentence` never pays the `Death Penalty` but sits in a cell and walks away after 6-10 years in SL! Thanks to the Executive President of the Nation.

    The people want the Death Penalty imposed, the judiciary want it imposed, but the politicians seem reluctant to bring it back: WHY?

    [The people want the Death Penalty imposed, the judiciary want it imposed, but the politicians seem reluctant to bring it back: WHY?]

    The GOSL need more criminals so they can be sent to NorthEast where they can burn the libraries and murder the innocent Tamils saying that the innocent Tamils are terrorists.

    Even in this century our country will never learn any thing good, just play the racist card so you can win the elections.

    It is not only in SL this kind of things happen.

    When Pres. Clinton was about to leave after his second term, he pardoned several convicted criminals.

    later it was said that some had paid money to his brother-in-law and arranged the pardon. And sme others were the people who went to prison admitting guilt (therefore acquiting Clintons) for the Arkansas land scandal.

    I would say a this is a wide spread practice through out the world.

    Non of them were on death row. That is the issue. For a serious six years is very low. Something is fishy.

    One of Saddam Hussein`s sons was once convicted for murder by Iraqi courts and death sentence was given. Saddam pardoned him. It was a big joke .
