    [Two other banks Deutsche Bank and Standard Chartered Bank have also sought arbitration in London over amounts due to them. While Deutsche Bank claimed US$ 64 million (Rs. 7 billion), the SCB asked for US$ 103 million (Rs. 11.3 billion). ]

    They could have negotiated,probably even now, to pay certain number of cents per each dollar and can settle it.

    Because CPC is a money losing enterprise.

    CPC was run by a Cricket player. that is what happened.

    Why they don`t have people educated in business management ?

    Sri Lanka needs to allocate money to dredge all the tanks (reservoirs) in the country. In the last a few decades soli erosion was so high and norw the tanks are filled and water holding capacity is very low.

    $ 500 million seems to be a very high.

    I think the same thing will continue until the late next year.

    [Opposition sources said that the losses due to recent floods coupled with a bigger oil bill and massive payments (as much as Rs. 10.3 billion) to Citibank over oil hedging deals together with interest could have a destabilizing impact on the economy. Sources said that the government should review the economy and its approach to future challenges taking into consideration current economic difficulties.

    The opposition knows how to complain. Have any of these buggers visited flood affected areas?

    Feeling sorry for fellow citizens who had to endure the misery of extreme floods.

    Its because of the natural jealousy. MR and SLFP will do the same, if they are in the opposition.

    If gov managed to do a good job, its politically bad for opposition. If gov do a bad job, opposition knows a good `yati-madi gahillak` is going in gov group.

    Its gov responsibility to organize a task group from all parties and assign flood rehabilitation tasks to them without taking the total credit using gov power. Its responsibility of opposition too, to filter any available advantage from the issue, by showing a kind heart to flood-affected people.
