Better I quit my profession and sell fish in the market. Judicial gone to dogs, after this Govt. took over.
Kadupol Jothywansa Friday, 22 June 2018 09:10 PM
Honestly, even MR though he was a dictator he did not do such 3rd grade work as My3 and RW did.
Rev. Harold Johnpillai Friday, 22 June 2018 09:13 PM
Totally to say, this Government cheated the masses and pushed them to the grave, but the President, PM and all Ministers are enjoying the max. benefits. God hear our cry and save the nation from these evil men.
Independany Saturday, 23 June 2018 02:11 AM

Channa Fernando Saturday, 23 June 2018 04:45 AM
Selling fish is a profession , Just because you are a attorney at law don't insult others

There goes the Law again. How can this country ever prosper?
True Spirit Ranga Friday, 22 June 2018 09:19 PM
Never this country will prosper because the Ruthless rulers of our country are least bothered about what is happening, they are bothered only about their power and wealth, worst than MR.
Waz Friday, 22 June 2018 05:39 PM
This country will never prosper.The culprits are protected.

This is utterly ridiculous. No imprisonment nor jumper. Wonder what the Justice minister has to say. So sad for the SL public.
Buddhist Friday, 22 June 2018 05:54 PM
Minister Thalatha what is this banana law? Should you now get foreign judges to our courts?
Gp Friday, 22 June 2018 09:27 PM
Now do you think this country deserves to have foreign judges.
Logan Friday, 22 June 2018 05:56 PM
They have just made him more famous, that's all.
Muwa Friday, 22 June 2018 06:07 PM
This law is not a joke when tamil ,muslim or political leaders granted bail. Is this thera a murder? No. rober? No. raper? No. Then why people are shouting ?
Kiris Baba Amaray [Kadu Amaray] Friday, 22 June 2018 09:32 PM
No point of talking, Mr. President got scared that he will lose the popularity - immediately he ordered the release of Thero, for his own benefit. Shame of our boneless sloppy President.
666 Friday, 22 June 2018 07:19 PM
Ha,ha,ha. Now you can see why Duminda Dissanayake visited him in the prison. And on whose orders he did that. This is the outcome.
KT. Siriwardene (Parliament staff) Friday, 22 June 2018 09:39 PM
Mr. President got scared of this dirty monk and he wanted to release this fellow. Believe me, I got to know he had given him 4.5 million for his future living from the public money (President's Fund)
Wise Donkey Friday, 22 June 2018 07:36 PM
The whole world is laughing at us! We don't have any comments.
TONY Friday, 22 June 2018 07:37 PM
IN SRI LANKA THE LAWS ARE THERE, BUT THEY ARE NOT APPLIED CORRECTLY. THOSE WITH INFLUENCE WILL GET AWAY ANY JUDGEMENT.
Warren Raed Friday, 22 June 2018 07:43 PM
This country has gone to dogs.
JUSTICE. Friday, 22 June 2018 07:47 PM
IN SRI LANKA LAW IS NOT EQUAL ALL. via DM Android App

I hope this worrier Monk will accept the rights of the woman who is searching her disappeared husband. .
Atha Katha Kalung Friday, 22 June 2018 09:22 PM
Believe me, its 100% true - this monk is a womanizer, He needs different figures daily, Gota supplies. this is 100% truth... one day everything will come to light.
Monica Friday, 22 June 2018 08:36 PM
Does the law allow a person to be bailed after convicting and sentencing in Court?
Kadupol Jothywansa Friday, 22 June 2018 09:29 PM
If it is for a normal citizen, by now he will be penalized and sqizzed, but this dam sinner comes out with a smile saying that he enjoyed the best comforts in the prison. Mr. Prez. pls. answer my question? You who made arrangements for his release. This is a curse for you for saving a sinner. You will reap the harvest soon putha.
Sunil P Friday, 22 June 2018 08:41 PM
Excuse me ..How can this happen !! He was sentenced for 6 months not 6 hours ..we knew this is going to happen from the beginning what about the kangaroo court decision??

Is it any wonder, why the International Community, wants SL to have foreign judges? By the actions of the STUPID JUDGES PRESIDENT N PM, we as a country look fools in the eyes of the ENTIRE WORLD..Here comes the Presidential nominee, with FULL support from Gota, as he wont be able to contest EVEN IF HE SUBMITS his papers for relinquishing his US citizenship TODAY...so he will use Gnana as a proxy...not MR..
