The girl who was serving a jail term on charges of damaging the Sigiriya Mirror Wall using a hairpin was released from Anuradhapura Prison today after Presidential pardon..
She was charged with causing damage to the Mirror Wall at Sigiriya and was sentenced to two years’ imprisonment by Dambulla Magistrate Sanjeewa Ramyakumara on March 2.
The woman, a resident of Batticaloa, had visited Sigiriya along with some friends and scribbled her name on the Mirror Wall using a hairpin.

Should would have been released earlier if she fell and admitted to national hospital immediately after the arrest. Unfortunately she is not a parliament member to do so

Upali do not ralk rubbish,listen to what that racist gamanpila said about the flag

How could one even think of comparing the two cases. Whilst the Sigiriya girl did it innocently, those who used the distorted flag did it intentionally in order to create communal disharmony.

She is innocent and ignorant. She had not done with an intention. Two years jail was too harsh. I thank his Excellency for giving reprieve.

No action had been taken to the officers [guards] who were on duty at that point as scribbling ones name over there would take a considerable time!

we should protect our national heritage.At the same time young generation must know the value of these heritages.

What nonsense of interference in judiciary ? Is it a criminal offence ? The innocence of the woman should have been reasonably considered by the magistrate himself or herself without any kind of bias.

Will artists from king Kashyapa era come to renew the damage done by any idiot.
upali Thursday, 30 April 2015 10:57 AM
Similar to Lions flag issue because of unawareness of tiny difference of a flag which resembles almost same.
