Yes he met police the night

Yes he met police the night before so something is not right. If the police in SA are anything like the ones in Jamaica (ie: Woolmer), then expect nothing!

See the difference in third

Sulaimaan do you think there

Sulaimaan do you think there is something wrong when people ask SL government to investigate war crimes allegations? You want criminals, rapist and murders in our army to go scott free or do you think our whole army is full of saints?? You want Sri Lankans whose children were killed, bombed, murdered or raped during the war to just forget and move on? Their anger will cause another war later. Dont forget man Tigers are all Sri Lankans. All the people who lived in war areas are Sri Lankans.
