    Can there ever be another verdict? Appointment of all the judges of the Supreme Court and Court of Appeal is done by the president.

    When 18 laks of people has voted a President to power, on what basis could you simply think of challenging it ? Learn to accept the inevitable. Yes the mojority rules.

    More comments are for SF, they are the people of the city. But more people lives in the rural areas. Election result went on the same lines. Nothing to be surprised!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Anyway SF tried and failed. He should know that it is anyway going to fail as the public had spoken. What a politician - failing all the way, bad decisions and big mouth!

    Hema Friday, 29 October 2010 08:39 AM

    People who want to insult SC should leave the country and find a country of their choice if they cannot accept the judiciary. This applies to the politicans and the civilians!

    Deepal Friday, 29 October 2010 05:20 AM

    The Public did not want the SC to give a decision because we knew the end result. So it was.

    Respondents not guilty. Anyway, thanks SC for the entertainment.

    We were known of the decision before hand. Now we can not expect any fair decisions from any court

    Something missing without trace.

    Lakmal Friday, 29 October 2010 05:41 AM

    krishh Friday, 29 October 2010 05:43 AM

    now a days everyone can predict the court orders in advance. i wonder,law, is that easy subject?

    sf Friday, 29 October 2010 05:45 AM

    This was on the cards. Can we expect anything positive at all for this great Hero? but lets hope truth will surface someday, so that the General would be released.

    Saliya Wickremasuriy Friday, 29 October 2010 05:50 AM

    No surprise. Don't worry dear General Fonseka. You are the hero in the people's heart.

    Court could reject. But let's see how many comments will be there in Daily Mirror Comments page in favour of SF. I know for sure that it clearly indicates who could have been the present President.

    One has to support one's masters.

    The case was dismissed on technicalities, not on the facts. Says a lot for the quality of justice in this country.

    It is a mockery of justice that S.B Dissanayake clearly identified. One day there will be justice in this country and it will not be blind. It is a shame that people with such power leave a legacy of shame for their families to carry forward.

    Ranjith Friday, 29 October 2010 06:17 AM

    A rat tried to make mouls in the hill. You get what you did!. Jayaweva. The President. Pls read more SF!

    Ganga772 Friday, 29 October 2010 06:30 AM

    See as I said, how many comments for SF. Hurray

    RupasingheR Friday, 29 October 2010 06:44 AM

    Gango, there were so many comments for SF during the elections, but he lost. Colombo 7 comments are not the majority.

    Maqs Friday, 29 October 2010 06:44 AM

    Yes, it's really sad

    Lionel Friday, 29 October 2010 09:46 AM

    No more fair elections in this country, and voters voting for a fun

    What more can you expect after diplomatic appointments and Corporation Chairmanships are dispensed freely.
