Matugama Chief Magistrate Wasantha Kosala Senadira, yesterday, warned United National Party (UNP) MP Palitha Thewarapperua over his non appearance in court.

The magistrate said parliament was the law making arm and the MPs were the law makers. He told Mr. Thewarapperuma that the law makers should be law abiding.

A warrant had been issued for the arrest of the MP due to his not appearing in court for cases involving him and not reporting to the police. However, he had later surrendered to court accompanied by his lawyers.

His lawyers had informed Court that he had been unable to appear in court as he was suffering from a heart ailment. The magistrate then ordered him to report to the court registrar during second and third week of every month. He was then enlarged on bail at the request of his lawyers.(Sunil S.Thantriarachchi)

    MP Palitha Thewarapperua, time for you to quit politics for the good of our country. Please hand in you resignation to the UNP and look after your health and have your heart ailment treated. Politics is not for people like you.

    Law makers should not only abide by the law, but should be far sighted with a vision and intelligent, to formulate and make law. Unfortunately only a handful of such persons are in the parliament, and the rest are of the this same category. And now these same lot is entrusted to implement a new constitution. In my opinion the formulation of new constitution and election systems should have done completely (or at least partly) independent of the parliament.

    Thewarapperua has his faults but he is no Mervyn Silva. Thewarapperua showed courage during the aluthgama riots saving several people getting injured himself.

    In future elections, anyone contesting in an election should make their health condition / report public. So that public can prevent the unhealthy sick ones being elected to parliament!

    The child admission case was totally uncalled for. Who does he think he is to forcibly get children admitted?. His thinking is same as GMOA people.

    pathetic, still the law makers think Law must abide by the whims and fancies of Law makers. Not other way around.

    On one occasion he trespassed into a school and wanted to commit suicide. No punishment. This time he has disobeyed a warrant and not appeared in court thus being not only breaking the law but also contempt of a court order. Again no punishment and gets off with bail. Banana republic.
