    Tuesday, 23 February 2010 11:34 AM

    BANDA - come to town from where ever you are in cuckooland.
    Do you know what Law & Order means ?

    Tuesday, 23 February 2010 08:57 AM

    Could be the reason as why AG is out of the country…!!!

    Tuesday, 23 February 2010 11:34 AM

    If the decision was in your favor the law system would have been good. What bankrupt people are these no wonder we have 4m donkeys now left high & dry.

    Tuesday, 23 February 2010 08:57 AM

    Written. signed, sealed and delivered. No surprises.

    Tuesday, 23 February 2010 08:57 AM

    We knew this...

    What to do....

    Only Mother Nature can help him.....

    where is os called "Human Rights"

    Tuesday, 23 February 2010 08:58 AM

    predicted outcome isnt it???

    Tuesday, 23 February 2010 08:58 AM

    Now people will say SC in the hands of Kings Family!

    Tuesday, 23 February 2010 11:42 AM

    Gen Fonseka Knows a lot.... They are severely scared to set him free !. Law is in Govt's hand. I'm sure they will keep this Brave Lion in the cage as long as possible !.

    Tuesday, 23 February 2010 09:03 AM

    No surprises; expected decision.

    Tuesday, 23 February 2010 09:05 AM

    Well done. Don't let this "uncorrupted" politician go.

    Tuesday, 23 February 2010 09:05 AM

    Good decision . No one should above the law

    Tuesday, 23 February 2010 09:06 AM

    Ooh !! What is the reason ???. Pressure from the Top ??

    Tuesday, 23 February 2010 09:06 AM

    When there are accusations that even the Mahanayakas are threatened, no point in talking about the plight of other institutions.

    Tuesday, 23 February 2010 09:10 AM

    Jayawewa!

    Tuesday, 23 February 2010 09:12 AM

    Obviously. This was a foregone conclusion. How can they go against the regime.

    Tuesday, 23 February 2010 09:15 AM

    THIS WAS EXPECTED AS IT WAS FIXED BY PRESIDENT ONLY GOD WILL SHOW MERCY ON HIM

    Tuesday, 23 February 2010 09:19 AM

    JUSTICE FOR ALL

    Tuesday, 23 February 2010 09:21 AM

    Where are we heading in our Democratic SL????

    Tuesday, 23 February 2010 09:22 AM

    The court fears that he will vanish like his son-in-law!

    Tuesday, 23 February 2010 09:22 AM

    Looks its all part of the game plan.

    Tuesday, 23 February 2010 09:24 AM

    Naturally, the judiciary comes under the control of our King!! Too bad for General Fonseka.

    Tuesday, 23 February 2010 09:27 AM

    This was widely expected to happen. We now only have the all mighty to turn to. He will do the justice very very very soon.

    Tuesday, 23 February 2010 09:28 AM

    how can the court release a dictator?

    Tuesday, 23 February 2010 09:29 AM

    Will supreme court release tralitor like him just like that? The worst traitor of Sri Lankan history! Bring back capital punishment!!

    Tuesday, 23 February 2010 09:30 AM

    Supreme Court judges are appointed by the President.

    Tuesday, 23 February 2010 09:35 AM

    Why? ….why?…. What wonder decision has given…..
    No other place to go….. at lease please help the god please….

    Tuesday, 23 February 2010 09:40 AM

    People want to know the reasons highlighted by the Supreme Court. That is the important thing for public.

    Tuesday, 23 February 2010 09:42 AM

    Atleast a relief to the loyalties and family members! Hope that there will be more developments in the future.

    Tuesday, 23 February 2010 09:46 AM

    The judgement was predictable in a country like Sri-Lanka! Shame!

    Tuesday, 23 February 2010 09:46 AM

    No faith in law system in Sri lanka.

    Tuesday, 23 February 2010 09:46 AM

    Obviously, this is the reason the CJ is appointed by the President.

    Tuesday, 23 February 2010 09:47 AM

    Now what? Protests?

    Tuesday, 23 February 2010 09:50 AM

    Foregone conclusion...why waste the time of the learned judiciary whose hands are tied. If the EC could have been forced to submission why not the judges....

    Tuesday, 23 February 2010 09:50 AM

    He made a mistake by coming to Politics Now he is paying the price being inexperience politico ,

    Tuesday, 23 February 2010 09:53 AM

    We know that court cannot do anything against MR & Gota...

    Tuesday, 23 February 2010 09:54 AM

    sad .. nothing new..

    Tuesday, 23 February 2010 09:55 AM

    what a joke???

    Tuesday, 23 February 2010 09:55 AM

    Good decision, the law and order must prevail in the country.

    Tuesday, 23 February 2010 09:58 AM

    Now where else to go except the International Court of Justice. How powerful is the Sahodare Samagama. DAMN SHAME.

    Tuesday, 23 February 2010 10:00 AM

    we knew this....what a shame ...

    Tuesday, 23 February 2010 10:01 AM

    we lost the hope of justice in the the legal system....in this country

    Tuesday, 23 February 2010 10:05 AM

    Not a surprise.

    Tuesday, 23 February 2010 10:10 AM

    Unfortunately the current CJ has not got the guts & the backbone of what his predecessor Sarath had in him.

    Tuesday, 23 February 2010 10:10 AM

    "Finally Courts also under their control", is it the correct meaning of this decision???????????

    Tuesday, 23 February 2010 10:13 AM

    Now throw stones against SC also.

    Tuesday, 23 February 2010 10:14 AM

    what a joke .how nice sri lnkan justice system . god ,bless sri lnkenpeople please

    Tuesday, 23 February 2010 10:17 AM

    Tuesday, 23 February 2010 10:19 AM

    How to release, Gov wants him to keep him in prison until election is over... dats the plan... Even court has to follow dis plan...

    Tuesday, 23 February 2010 10:23 AM

    Tuesday, 23 February 2010 10:23 AM

    Tuesday, 23 February 2010 10:35 AM

    We have Kangaroo Courts in Banana Republic

    Tuesday, 23 February 2010 10:43 AM

    This must be egg on the faces of this traitor's supporters.
    Now please move on without causing any further troubles.

    Tuesday, 23 February 2010 10:44 AM

    He should be shifted to Welikada for the wrongdoings he had done for the nation.

    Tuesday, 23 February 2010 10:50 AM

    Allowing access to SF's immidiate family members and Lawyes is a plus point....... very soon you will be free Sir. Good luck.

    Tuesday, 23 February 2010 10:51 AM

    We pray for justice to prevail in our country. All wrong doers will have to face it whether they like it or not. Every action has its reaction.

    Tuesday, 23 February 2010 10:53 AM

    Well said.SF has become the NO 1 traitor.

    Tuesday, 23 February 2010 10:57 AM

    where would dr. mervyn and duminda silva be shifted to for their wrongdoings ??? i guess to the parliament.

    Tuesday, 23 February 2010 11:00 AM

    Surendra,

    The former LTTE person who resposible for Aranthalawa, Dalada Maligawa etc.. shoud be in the Parliament. The person who has done a major part of the war against the LTTE, should be in Jail. Are you a human...??????????

    Tuesday, 23 February 2010 11:00 AM

    Banda,

    What kind of law and order are you talking about!

    Tuesday, 23 February 2010 11:06 AM

    what are the charges pls , definitely it can not be the coup charges as others were released ...

    even if court released i doubt it has any weight in military court , SC would have saved his image !

    Tuesday, 23 February 2010 11:06 AM

    SF to WElikada and KP to Visumpaya?

    Tuesday, 23 February 2010 11:08 AM

    we trust our judiciary system.

    Tuesday, 23 February 2010 11:12 AM

    The right decision???

    Tuesday, 23 February 2010 11:13 AM

    This was expected with the acting appointment was staged managed.
    will we ever know the reason or has it to be spelled out by the patriots?

    Tuesday, 23 February 2010 11:17 AM

    incomplete news, on what grounds they did not release him?

    Tuesday, 23 February 2010 11:19 AM

    Shameful executive power of MR is above the law of the land.

    Tuesday, 23 February 2010 11:21 AM

    Judiciary system also a part of executive president's cats paw.

    Tuesday, 23 February 2010 11:23 AM

    All these follows are of the view that SF is innocent and correct.All hv forgottan his threattening and foul way of talking few weeks back.

    Had he won,all could hv seen!!!!!!!1

    Tuesday, 23 February 2010 11:24 AM

    Tuesday, 23 February 2010 08:52 AM

    Ela Kiri

    Tuesday, 23 February 2010 08:52 AM

    This is a foregone conclusion. What fundamental rights are being upheld in this country? It is a pity that a war hero has to be in this situation!!

    Tuesday, 23 February 2010 08:52 AM

    JVP, it’s time for another picket. Now you can blame the judiciary system and request for international interference.

    Tuesday, 23 February 2010 08:53 AM

    They will not release him until the election is over

    Tuesday, 23 February 2010 11:29 AM

    how very very sad. cant they appeal ?

    Tuesday, 23 February 2010 08:54 AM

    Excellent. Someone under these sort of criminal charges should never be released without taking them to courts for their wrongdoings. Now UNP+JVP+LTTe+Anoma will cry against the judges!!
