    Why did the Supreme Court take more than 6 months to hear the petition filed by General Sarath Fonseka?

    Every one in SL knows that the district level election secretariats are only suppose to keep the official copies of the polls results with them for up to 6 months only.

    From all the above comments, it's clear the court verdict is a foregone conclusion. As said, it may be a waste of time, but people sitting in judgement will have to salve their conscience.

    Is it going to be in a court of law?

    ind Monday, 05 July 2010 11:18 AM

    Why ??? Still UNP couldn't count those sheet even after 6 months ???

    bash Monday, 05 July 2010 05:19 AM

    Does that mean the president cannot take oaths untill the case is over ?

    Roshan Monday, 05 July 2010 05:23 AM

    The case will be dismissed, just a waste of time.

    Pon Monday, 05 July 2010 05:28 AM

    Guess what the court's decision is going to be.

    Ramzeel Monday, 05 July 2010 05:34 AM

    This is an utter waste of the Courts time because the outcome is already known by all Sri Lankans

    Innocent Civilian Monday, 05 July 2010 05:58 AM

    As a citizen of this great nation, I have no faith in any of the systems in place now. Hence, I believe it's safe to say that the outcome of this trial will be another disappointment.

    The justice cant be achieved from judges appointed by the president of this country.

    Prabodaya Monday, 05 July 2010 11:57 AM

    Sarath Fonseka should approach a Queen's Counsel from UK to defend him at any cost

    Lal Hannadige Monday, 05 July 2010 06:23 AM

    Do not expect fare justice in Sri Lanka, everything in SL has been highly politicized like in Iran and other junta ruling countries

    Nava Venasa Monday, 05 July 2010 06:28 AM

    Senior Citizen Monday, 05 July 2010 12:17 PM

    That is called manipulation by the judiciary.

    ajith Monday, 05 July 2010 08:00 AM

    Uragodage Monday, 05 July 2010 01:33 PM

    How can we expect a good judgment when there is no unbiased legal system in the country.Judges in Srilanka are often influenced by political personals.

    Lal Hannadige Monday, 05 July 2010 08:41 AM

    Do not expect fare justice in Sri Lanka, everything in SL has been highly politicized like in Iran and other communist junta countries

    Hasn't it been about 6 months since the presidential polls?
    After 6 months time the signed paper work of the polls results of district levels are not valid although the official results paperwork is signed by the election secretariats and the party leaders. So the results will be valid because 6 months have already passed. Real winner of the presidential polls-- Gen. Fonseka therefore will lose the court case.
