    It seems the LAW is VERY WELL IMPLEMENTED ONLY on SINHALESE. Politicians and terrorists EASILY ESCAPE while the military and normal people who talks against injustice NICELY CAPTURED and LAW is IMPLEMENTED VERY WELL ON THEM. We need to remember that we are a country who implement law on a person who plucked some mangoes for hunger and we bailed 09 people involved in the terrorist's copper factory. SHAME ON US AS A NATION!
