  1. WHY YOU GUYS HIT ONLY SRILANKA YOUR COUNTRY INDIA INDIA MANS RAPES GIRLS DAILLY WHY U NOT TELL SOMETHING ABOUT IT SHAME ON YOU,JUST GOOGLE

  2. The matter was briefly investigated in the open magistrate court of the area where the killing took place. 6 witnesses came forward to testify that it was the police who lit fire to vehicles, and brutally fired at an innocent man who had no weapons nor a stone in his hand. It was discovered that the police reports were illegally changed and there were testimonies that OIC of the police made death threats to 2 people at the start of the protest. This is all factual and is on local media news. Ps. The appointed minister for the police is actually a criminal who’s currently out on bail, which is a good example to demonstrate the thugs that are part of the rajapksa regime who are now forcefully staying in power.

  3. If you can't talk about what the dictators are doing, you get in prison or killed, then you are not an democracy. Only now, after the lawyer s said they will help the public ,(without charging) people dare to speak…

  4. They had a free go in looting the financial system for about 20 years. That has to be found and go back into the srilankan pot.

  5. HOW DID THIS HAPPEN IN sri lanka
    2 SUPRISES
    gota TERNINATOR SUPRISE
    mahindtha SUPRISE*
    IN 2O22 ITS OUT

  6. Updates : the police heads who invilved in shooting just got transferred. And a police officer who supported people got remanded 😥. This is the Transparent investigation 😑

  7. THAT WILL HAPPEN IS USE SEND CIA TO MINGLE COUNTRY'S INTERNAL AFFAIR..USING PEOPLE TO DESTROY THEIR OWN COUNTRY

  8. Karma returns to Srilankans. A few decades ago, the Tamil population was facing similar situation. Discrimination in jobs, no infrastructure & development concentrated only in and around Colombo. Well qualified Tamil were hounded out of the country. Now the same situation has come to hound the Sinhalese people but minus the Tamils who cannot now be blamed for this. It will take decades of hard work and sacrifices by the present generation to come out of this mess in any manner.

  9. Medam tel IMF dont give any dollar to rajapaksha gaverment . They steeling all mony . I am 18 year in qatar till i am poover becouse smoll job smoll salery but rajapaksha family all are briliyanars haw they come rich.

  10. Whatever the aid that is granted to srilanka now should not be in the form of money. Because that will go to someone's pocket.

  11. This is the result of sucking up to China by Raja Paksa! He sold Hambadata port and got himself into a debt trap! Where ever the CCP lays its evil hands, everything turns into dust! The Solomon island will follow suit!

  12. This is how s BJP will fired on Tamils in Tamil Nadu few years back and killed 14 Tamils. Can you do a analysis. Toothukudi Tamil Nadu massacare by BJP.

  13. Actually they don’t any single idea about how to run the country even though they don’t want to listen from educated ppls , arrogant politicians

  14. Wion is not exposing the mega corruption of the rajapakshas. They claimed putin maybe worth usd 200bn. But nothing is said of the rajapakshas loot some of which was exposed by Pandora papers. Its extremely puzzling.

  15. I really pray for this country I have been to Srilanka and they are some of the most gentle hospitable set of people, very meticulous, I hope God give you all strength and soon things get better in Srilanka God bless, love from India 🇮🇳 🙏 ❤

  16. Please help save this beautiful country from Rajapakse Terrorists. LTTE destroyed only a small part of the country these Rajapakse Terrorists destroyed and robbed the whole country. They are more ruthless than LTTE.

  17. Thay have all basters ,no idea not thinking for our people .Only think is how to get money?big robbers .God will punish them very soon.

  18. This Sarath N Silva is a corrupt Justice, He acknowledge he gave the verdict in favor of Mahinda Rajapaksa after he was accusing for stolen Tsunami fund, despite evidence shoed he stolen money. Do not take advice form this guy

  19. Unless untill the existing ethnic issues of Sri Lankan Tamils solved there is no chance the Island nation to come back to its original state.The 13th amendment of the SriLanka constitution should come to effect as per the Indo-Lanka Accord that was made between the then Indian PM Rajiv Gandhi and the Slk.president J.R.Jayswardane in July 1987.The North -East should be merged.Then the 20th amendment should be waived which is giving a high sky power to the president and it is not an acceptable in a democratic set up and because of it FDI not coming to the Slk.

  20. Look at them President and Priminister 😫🥵 they have no issues. This family and ministers well okay 👌

  21. Outraged for one dead protester. Where was the outrage when Tamils were killed on streets of Colombo.

    They majority sinhalease and the budhist monks cheered on.

    Police and government have been shooting Tam's for decades.

    What's the fuss for one protester.
    I suppose it hurts when it's your own.
