    If this was heard in a Jaffna Courts by a Tamil Magistrate, once can expect an exemplary sentence, but in the south by a Sinhalese Magistrate it will be a manipulated deal.

    we salute the judge for his courageous and correct judgement against this yellow robe person who is a disgrace for Budda sasana. My fear is that the top person may get involve to release him to a get cheap political millage.
