The UNP claims that the arrest of UNF Colombo district candidate and former Sirasa media Director Susil Kindelpitiya was an act of political revenge by the government at a time when a General Election is at hand.

UNP General Secretary Tissa Attanayaka speaking to Daily Mirror online stated that there was an acepted method of conducting an arrest after a complaint was lodged. And that an arrest of a candidate contesting an election at a time an election is at hand was wrong without conducting proper investigations.

Mr. Attanayaka further stated that acts Susil Kindelpitiya has been instructed to obtain the necessary legal advice against his arrest. Kindelpitiya was arrested by the police this morning over a complaint lodged by a woman last night alleging abuse and harassment. (Daily Mirror online)

    He must be a traitor! Any arrested person is a traitor..any person who praises the govt is a patriot.

    It will undoubtedly be a favorable election campaign for him. Wish you the best Mr. Kendelpitiya !

    Friday, 02 April 2010 02:13 PM

    whose next.

    This is exactly what they do in Myanmar-Sri Lanka is infested with the incurable cancer-our democracy is rotting-
    We cant still bring to justice people who killed Lasantha-we cannot even arrest people who destroy public property-but we can take into custody a candidate for a trivial matter.RULE OF LAW Of the Jackasses!

    Kage kageth killotaye hunu tika tika thiyenawa. This is a Sinhala proverb. The meaning is everybody has done something wrong at sometime somewhere. So these so called holiest media men also have something hiding behind just like all the politicians. Whatever it is all are crooks.

    LET HIM CONTEST, AND WIN, SO THAT HE CAN BE APPOINTED MINISTER OF WOMENS' 'AFFAIRS,' BY RANIL.

    Is it appropriate to suggest that the police should act in a 'different' manner when the person accused of having committed a crime happens to be a political personality?

    Friday, 02 April 2010 11:21 PM

    Anyone can accuse someone of 'misconduct,' if paid to do so by interested parties.

    Friday, 02 April 2010 11:52 PM

    What is strange is that all these arrests and charges are made either when there is an election or in the event of someone going against the government in power. This is what creates suspicion, in the minds of the people. Actually, it is not 'suspicion' anymore. More like a joke now!

    If mother Lanka could speak, she too would complain loudly as to how assorted politicians have been abusing her day and night, for over 60 years. If lady Justice could speak, she too would complain as to how she has been repeatedly 'raped' for many years, under different regimes. Will the Police act on such complaints too?

    Saturday, 03 April 2010 02:27 AM

    What an efficient and impartial POLICE that this country have?

    Saturday, 03 April 2010 02:57 AM

    Arrest all the opponents. Then Rajapaksas can win the election and get not 2/3 majority but 100% majority. What a pathetic state of democracy, free and fair election?

    Saturday, 03 April 2010 03:11 AM

    Shame, Shame & Shame. We are for sure living in a dictatorial regime.

    Saturday, 03 April 2010 03:11 AM

    Will the police act same manner if a women make a complain against the govt. minister ? Dear Voters it is upto you to retain or change the system ....

    Saturday, 03 April 2010 03:41 AM

    Those who are supposed to be in jail are released on police bail

    Saturday, 03 April 2010 04:09 AM

    Why not arrest Ranil before 8 th. and then lock up all the UNP candidates!!! Sri Lanka is more like Myanmar where political dissent is not tolerated by the Government.

    Saturday, 03 April 2010 04:22 AM

    good country, good governance, good people. All you can find in Sir Lanka. Will people of Sri Lanka will ever stand up for good governance and protections of human rights?

    Saturday, 03 April 2010 04:57 AM

    Bravo!!!

    Saturday, 03 April 2010 05:02 AM

    If 25% ladies represent to politics what will happen.

    Saturday, 03 April 2010 05:04 AM

    Normally I don't support any political parties. But this this time I want to see that Mahinda & family going home & they are also under tough law.
