    UNP is the victim of this.

    All most all permits are sold ? but not possible to transfer

    for a given period.

    Or some vehicles has to be return to Gov stores.

    Still this Benz is under Ven Medananda`s name.

    The story in Iran : Embrace Islamic extremism, make racist remarks against Jews, deny holocaust, Shout murderous threats - become President! Story in Sri Lanka from 1950s (Both SWRD and JRJ): Embrace racism, `sinhala only` etc,create sense of insecurity in majority-result= Swept into power! The Latest? Put on a saffron robe, embrace extremism, shout slogans of violence and intolerance-result? Power, trappings of luxury, etc!I bet there must be monuments of gratitude built to honour the above ( except the Iranian)in Kilinochchi for the service rendered to the Tamil racist Eelamist cause.

    This Benz saga is a clear indication that Ranil & the UNP are bankrupt for idead to prop up the party image.

    Ranil gone wild with cheap pulicity doing a Karuna.

    Another extention as the Opposition leader

    Yeah and on the other hand look how expensive and Classy MRs publicity is right??? MR never said a lie, never gave a false promise, never used tax payer money for his publicity stunts, Never abused his power, never bribed a terrorist org to come to power, never used his powers to nourish his family.... etc etc.. What a `EXPENSIVE` and Classy president we have! :) :)

    Hi Ani,

    What do you think of the illegal usage of Rev. Ellawala Medananda`s benz by Ranil(UNP)?

    Yesterday the itn.lk news had this report even the motor registration comminssioner claims that the car still belongs to rev. not anyone else.

    Hi K:

    [What do you think of the illegal usage of Rev. Ellawala Medananda`s benz by Ranil(UNP)? ]

    If its Illegal, then the Monks should go to police and lodge a complaint that RW stole their Vehical. Then RW should be arrested and put in Jail for Vehical theft.

    However, RW has produced, evidance that the Vehical was trasferred through a power of attorney to the guy Nishantha or something (i dont remember his name) who in trun gave it to RW.

    SO now its upto the police..

    I do not think this investigation should be covered up like the `Helping Hambanthota` Scandle or giving 1.5 Billion to the LTTE to stop tamils from voting.

    The police should investigate this and punish the guilty party whether its RW or the Monk. Just because your a high profile politician like MR or RW or just because you wore a yello robe, doesnt mean your above the law... :) :)

    Did you c the news yesterday on itn.lk? In fact patali champika said they are filing a case against Ranil as that is illegal use of the car.

    He also said that the documents produced by Ranil are invalid. I really don`t know about who is lying and who is not. So guess its upto the correct one to catch the real culprit and take action.

    Thats why we need an INDEPENDANT police investigation into that. And not another cover up like the Helping Hambanthota Scandle.

    If my car is stolen, i would go to the police IMMIDIATELY and file a report. I would not wait till, the guy who stole my car to go and have a news conferance and say that he bought the car from me. And then say `Ohh yeah my car was stole`.... :) :)

    Tell me K - what would you do if your car was stole? Especially if it was a Mercedes?
