    [If they are nabbed who is going to run the country]

    There are many honest people and patriots who have not sullied their hands in politics who are giving politics a wide berth now only because it is so dirty.

    Wouldn`t you think about it if it is clean?

    If passengers are gullible enough to fall for these centuries-old scams, they should not really blame others for conning them, as they richly deserve it.

    As for the culprits, the only solution may be summary execution as introduced by JVP in 1988-89.

    Home gurad arrested

    [Police said the arrested man, from Galenbindunuwewa, had earlier served as a home guard. ]

    Another band of EPDP and Karuna Group cadres are recruited as policemen to serve in the East and North.

    Tamils and Muslims in those provinces hate these Tamil speaking paramilitaries turned policemen more than Sinhalese policemen who speak Sinhala.

    These people are not gangs groupe but only deserted soldiers who have been escaping from the battle field .

    Instead of getting their legs removed by mine blasts they have all the rights to steal from train commuters for their daily bread.

    what is wrong?

    The situation in this crippled country make them to do so.

    Unless the whole sinhalese population come out and demand this military government to stop this war you can`t change this situation.

    This deserted soldier try to steal from train commuters and other deserters are working as under ground gangs in Colombo but for the same cause.
