The Puttalam Magistrate today issued a restraining order on a Presidential election rally organized by the opposition common candidate General Sarath Fonseka which was scheduled to be held in Puttalam tomorrow.


The restraining order was issued after a motion was brought forward by the Puttalam police stating that the funeral of the deceased supporter of the UPFA, Saman Kumara who was killed on the 16th was being held on the same day.  


The motion further stated that there might be unrest if the funeral procession clashes with the supporters of General Fonseka at the rally. Although objections were raised by the respondents they were dismissed by the Magistrate. The organizers were advised to hold the meeting on any day before the 23rd of this month.

    The Hon. Magistrate has made both a timely and very intelligent ORDER, to maintain PEACE, in the area. I cannot see any POLITICS, in this decision. The Hon Magistrate has acted without FEAR or FAVOUR!

    Action by the judicial system must be respected to avoid further blood shed.

    A good decision, to avoid further clashes - but if the situations had been vice versa, would this have been the same outcome? The Law eqaully apply, to all Sri Lankans!

    Tuesday, 19 January 2010 01:56 PM

    good decision

    Tuesday, 19 January 2010 02:03 PM

    Tuesday, 19 January 2010 02:12 PM

    good decision

    Tuesday, 19 January 2010 02:16 PM

    Appears JVP is hell bent to disrupt the elections and create chaos so that they can hide their 1.5% vote base!

    Wednesday, 20 January 2010 09:24 AM

    Wednesday, 20 January 2010 09:45 AM

    If it were President Rajapakses meeting would the same decesion have been made or would the family have been asked to have the funeral on another day ????
