    No comments for the time being, as I have to live in this island, if the word "live" has any meaning.

    None should question about freedom for speech and information. This man and his news have always been biased and unimportant. You are served what you are deserved.

    Wow that was quick! I am confused, why did the court not issue an international arrest warrant against Mrs. Basil Rajapakse who is wanted by the courts on pending cases?

    Where can we find media freedom as the good governance of this government hype?. All try to safeguard their identities either by hook or crook. Those who reveal the wrongdoings of top brass including judges in Sri Lanka will end up in the jail. This is the stark truth which lies behind all these kind of acts.

    This is a huge mistake. This is a website that has fearlessly stood its grounds during the worst period of media suppression - MR's rule. For its stands it has gone through severe punishment at the hands of the former regime -when its printing press was burnt down and Ekneligoda was abducted (probably killed). And, one of the few media sites (not many dared even if they knew) that has exposed the wrong-doings of all - regardless of their political status. Probably the single most crucial website that helped Yahapalanaya to materialize against all odds.

    True, these politicians are so ungrateful and once they come into power they want to stay for ever and now try to suppress the media.
