A THOUGHT

About 18 years ago one Gamini Perera was shot and killed outside the Hulftsdorp courts before he squealed about a scandal around   Sri Lanka Cricket (or BCCSL as it was termed then). I wonder if Piyal Nandana and the Authorities are aware of the possibilities awaiting Nandana from beyond the courts.
