The police have obtained a court order from the Chilaw Magistrate for the funeral of fisherman Anthony Fernando who succumbed to his injuries on Wednesday during clashes, which is to be held today.

The court order says, "The body cannot be used for any propaganda or for any violent activity," Police spokesman SP Ajith Rohana said. 
 
Police have also deployed 1,500 policemen to assist the Army and the elite Special Task Force (STF) in maintaining law and order in the area today. (SD)

    Is police shooting a justified killing? The court order comes later, ironically in this 'land of compassion' death sentences/judicial killings are not carried out!

    As was also the case with the murder of Katunayake boy during protests against the so called private sector pension proposal, this time too the courts issued orders against the common man and not against the murderers. Just imagine what a fine system of justice we have in this country now where murders can be carried out with impunity but protests against such kilings are barred with court orders.

    jajal Saturday, 18 February 2012 06:45 AM

    nowadays court orders are granted to suppress people's voice.........who will talk about these fundamental rights violation?

    Surain Sunday, 19 February 2012 05:36 AM

    manjula Abu Dhabi Saturday, 18 February 2012 07:20 AM

    No court order on the guy who fired the shot. Very strange. Miracle of Asia

    amuda rala Sunday, 19 February 2012 05:38 AM

    no court order for the abduction happened in the court premises...who is shameless...

    shiromi Saturday, 18 February 2012 07:33 AM

    court oders even for funeral ! Where is freedom in this country ?

    fazli Saturday, 18 February 2012 07:41 AM

    License to kill !

    Sam Saturday, 18 February 2012 07:45 AM

    This is a 'strange' order. The dead cannot create problems. It is only the living who create such problems. I think this order is an insult to the deceased!!

    Kane Sunday, 19 February 2012 07:04 AM

    Court orders are given by the Defence ministry.

    Asitha Saturday, 18 February 2012 07:52 AM

    We heading towards lawless era, Jungle law and Kangaroo court, Miracle of Asia.

    lankashantha Saturday, 18 February 2012 08:20 AM

    Did the police got court orders before shooting people with bullets?

    Leslie Saturday, 18 February 2012 08:04 AM

    Can the people obtain a Court Order to keep the Police away from their gatherings, if it is suspected that they are liable to fire at them for the slightest provocation. Could some legal luminary advice us on this.

    Calistus Jayatilleke Saturday, 18 February 2012 08:13 AM

    Very funny, court order to prevent people expressing their sorrow and anger but no such order against the law enforcers who shot and killed the innocent man.

    mudal amathi Saturday, 18 February 2012 08:15 AM

    People should go to courts and take an order to bar police from shooting prior to holding a protest.

    Koala Saturday, 18 February 2012 08:28 AM

    The government is desperate. They have no support now. They must go.

    hks Saturday, 18 February 2012 08:43 AM

    With the introduction of ridiculous procedures of this nature, It is unavoidable that the SRI LANKANS will become a laughing stock before the civilized world!! Disgraceful indeed!!!

    Nawala Saturday, 18 February 2012 09:08 AM

    Kill a civilian and take a court order so no protests at the funeral that will discredit the govt.

    Labby Saturday, 18 February 2012 09:19 AM

    To even imagine that a dead body will be used for violent activity are we in Palestine ?

    francis Saturday, 18 February 2012 09:44 AM

    This is really nonesense.

    loop Saturday, 18 February 2012 09:48 AM

    This is a shame... LAW is taking the side of thugs !

    Winson Saturday, 18 February 2012 09:42 AM

    shame on justice!

    joker Saturday, 18 February 2012 09:55 AM

    Law should be impartial..
    doesnt look like it is in this case..

    Sasanka Saturday, 18 February 2012 10:10 AM

    Next time police will take court orders to kill unarmed civilians.

    Minnal Sri Saturday, 18 February 2012 11:04 AM

    This is the first time I heard about Court order for a funeral? Even funerals are controlled by State. What country we are living in.

    IAJ Saturday, 18 February 2012 10:45 AM

    Why they are maintain a contingency plan unit to take such type of court order. Police should have to think on near future demonstration against to cost of living in order to that now on ward try to take court order to massacre

    Matalan Saturday, 18 February 2012 01:33 PM

    Have we reached the ultimate levels of deterioration in decency?Keep voting for crooks - The country will not be fit for humans soon.

    FRANNY Saturday, 18 February 2012 05:15 PM

    This is human rights voilation at its best and we have proved to the world by this act! What a country of laws !!!

    bash Saturday, 18 February 2012 06:18 PM

    Go ahead kill all those who oppose the regime corruption......

    Sri Lankan lawyer Saturday, 18 February 2012 07:47 PM

    Sri Lankan courts are undertaking the work of funeral undertakers.

    RajasH Saturday, 18 February 2012 08:03 PM

    License to Kill? No License to Cremate

    B.Fernando Saturday, 18 February 2012 10:02 PM

    In the lawless corrupt Banana Republic, no freedom even for a funeral. Wonder what independence they celebrated recently.
