    Another occassion that proved evrything in this world is temporary. Nothing is permanent.This is a good lesson for those who are abusing powers to take revenge from opponenets.

    Rohan Tuesday, 29 June 2010 12:32 PM

    Renu Tuesday, 29 June 2010 12:56 PM

    That's a bit over the top is in it? who is going to pay that bill then I hope it is not the tax payers and the Preethi Pdman Srasen can pick it up. I know Judges need to be away from personal biasness

    I Hussein Tuesday, 29 June 2010 12:56 PM

    He also must have thought that CBK will be in power forever so he can rampage like the way some assume at present.

    Lankikaya Tuesday, 29 June 2010 01:54 PM

    This is the punishment for only a THREAT. What is the punishment for actual deeds by this Government?

    Elaris Tuesday, 29 June 2010 02:12 PM

    Good lesson for the public officers who abuse the powers of political authority to harrass the innocent

    raja Wednesday, 30 June 2010 05:57 AM

    My thoughts exactly. What about those Army officers who allegedly abused and hit Sarath Fonseka while dragging him away?

    saman Tuesday, 29 June 2010 02:48 PM

    u mean in 2001 he threaten and then verdict was give in 2010 . I think even the judge and court system should feel ashamed !
    Is SSP still alive ?

    rala Tuesday, 29 June 2010 02:55 PM

    CBK too should be sent to the same prison

    Rattapakse Tuesday, 29 June 2010 03:23 PM

    Don.t worry. When constitution is chagned by Mahinda for a third term them Madam will stand for third term as well and release you on becoming the president.

    bash Tuesday, 29 June 2010 03:25 PM

    I remember this guy was very notorious and got away several times, this is a good lesson to all those abusing power with impunity these days

    musa Tuesday, 29 June 2010 03:34 PM

    ala Wednesday, 30 June 2010 01:22 PM

    this happens when you think that you are above the law. this should be a good lessons for our subservient police department.

    Deva Tuesday, 29 June 2010 09:15 PM

    Opposition supporters seem to end-up in jail! Different kinds of excuses are given, each time.

    Lankan Tuesday, 29 June 2010 09:15 PM
