It is difficult to understand as to whay the Singapore govermnet has failed to execute the extradiction of the main suspect Arjun Mahendran in the Central bank bond scam where Mahendran was the main suspect in embzelling billions of rupees. Strange that the Singapore provides a safe haven for the crooks. What is even strangeer is that the Sri Lankan government wants to execute trade deals with Singapore and it is most likely that crroked Arjun Mahebdran is party to this agreement. Sirirsena ought to put a syop to it until Mahendran is extradicted. Further judciary must make sure that Mahendran should be jailed in contempt of court until the hearing is completed.
Sirisena ought to realise that he is to be considered honorable and he should be prevented from addressing foriegn fora on behalf of the government.
This guy is gonna get roasted again!
He is troubled by many obsessions while forgetting he is the King and there is a country to be lead.
He is not a leader and the day he realises that and departs to the Paddy Fields in Polonnaruwa, all of us, the rich, the poor, the young and the old, will be spared of his stupidity.
