The man who staged a protest on top of a metal structure near the Viharamahadevi park yesterday was remanded till 29 September after being produced in Court a short while ago.

The man who was identified as Asanga de Soyza, was charged with violating public peace by getting on top of the structure and staging the protest the whole day till he finally came down last night.

Meanwhile the Fraud bureau told the Court that the man is wanted over a vehicle fraud. The man had told Court that he had no job. The Court told the police to produce him before a psychiatrist.

    Politicians can protest for the rights of the country is legal and civilizes protest for their rights is braking of the law.

    Why didn’t the government arrest all the JVP and UNP leaders on 8th, for violating public peace?

    Appuhamy Wednesday, 15 September 2010 08:53 AM

    Very soon, more than 50% of the Sri Lankan's will be in jail.

    Population of schools are decreasing... and the jailed population are increasing...

    Wimal should have been produced in courts as because he was misleading the public saying that he was on hunger strike while eating lemon puff time to time.

    KHKJ Wednesday, 15 September 2010 09:01 AM

    Which quite embarrassingly back fired! That is why they don't harp about his "heroics" anymore!

    Thomas Wednesday, 15 September 2010 02:42 PM

    Send him to be tied up by Dr. Mervyn to a coconut tree as punishment

    Thilini Wednesday, 15 September 2010 09:35 AM

    srilal Wednesday, 15 September 2010 05:04 PM

    This is a drama ... how you can put him jail?

    arshad Wednesday, 15 September 2010 10:26 AM

    What about the promise made to him by the Presidential Advisor - Is it like the Election Promises made in a menifesto

    Holman Wednesday, 15 September 2010 10:31 AM

    Climbing should be prohibited in SL. ha. ha.

    Mole Wednesday, 15 September 2010 06:32 PM

    Best school to be in!

    Roshan Wednesday, 15 September 2010 10:47 AM

    Climbing is prohibited but to tie a person to the tree is allowed and appreciated.

    Concerned Wednesday, 15 September 2010 11:02 AM

    Poor guy. He did not know what that pole was erected for during last presidential elections. That is not there for him to climb and protest. Stepping onto that itself is considered a crime!

    Ajithkumar Wednesday, 15 September 2010 11:34 AM

    Welcom to SL (NEW)

    Dinesh Wednesday, 15 September 2010 07:34 AM

    Correct decision is made. But why is the same not applicable to Wimal's protest.

    Ramy Wednesday, 15 September 2010 07:42 AM

    Dinesh,

    This man was wanted by FB for a fraud he had committed, so comparison with Wimal is not relevant ?

    Ranjith Wednesday, 15 September 2010 11:57 AM

    This kind of Animal cum JVP behaviours must meet the end. Impose the maximum punishment and give a lesson for others. If not the Court system is invain.

    mightym Wednesday, 15 September 2010 07:55 AM

    Dear Dinesh,
    Wimal protested for our country , Not for some stupid thing, So I don't see any relevance.

    Sharma Wednesday, 15 September 2010 07:58 AM

    Why not, at least WW should have been produced in court for violating international peace.

    Top Sri Lankan Wednesday, 15 September 2010 08:03 AM

    well, why didnt they send him to get a psychiatric report?

    sam Wednesday, 15 September 2010 08:10 AM

    Agreed machn,
    Government making decisions by looking at political points. There no common law any more.

    sltk2004 Wednesday, 15 September 2010 08:13 AM

    The only relevant point is the visit to a psychiatrist

    Palitha Heenthotuwa Wednesday, 15 September 2010 01:23 PM

    You must be joking!! LOL

    Travis Wednesday, 15 September 2010 08:13 AM

    And why Wimal wasn't produced before a psychiatrist? It's so unfair!

    Palitha Heenthotuwa Wednesday, 15 September 2010 01:25 PM

    The structure has been removed today.

    Probably because many are likely to follow the lead of this guy.
