E-mail Print
The Colombo Magistrate’s Court ordered the Borella and Bambalapitiya Police to get relevant details from phone companies after Court of Appeal Judges S. Sriskandarajah, and Justice Anil Goonarathne had received threatening phone calls, the day before the CA delivered its ruling on PSC.

Justice Sriskandarajah had lodged a complaint with the Bambalapitiya police, while Justice Goonarathne had lodged a complaint at the Borella Police.
According to reports Court of Appeal Judge S. Sriskandarajah had received an anonymous call to his residence on the eve of delivering the Court of Appeal Judgment yesterday, the Police said.

The Police said that both Court of Appeal Judges received the calls on January 6 (Sunday). The anonymous caller had threatened the judges not to proceed to court the next day

The Police said that the call to Justice Sriskandarajah had been made from a public phone booth in Rajagiriya, and they are conducting investigations into the incident.

Catch them and put them behind the bars. They will want the courts to hear their case.

In a way, reminiscences of early - JRJ era ....But, today's scene is more dangerous....Must take immediate action by Hon.Judges themselves - against impending physical threat!

All what they require is a lawless State so that they could silence those opposed to their views.

Idiotic voters and UNP opportunistic MPs who crossed over are responsible for the mess we are in. A rule by the thugs for the thugs while idiots stand and stare.

The only difference between that era and this era is the media is much stronger now.

Police says that the calls were made from the public booth, that means they can't do anything. Surely the Judges can find out whether the calls were from Public booth or not if they had CLI for land line or if mobile phone caller's numbers are displayed.

we all are responsible this situation today. UNP leader is the biggest failure in this regard to take the message to people and get there timely support. how can we trust him when he himeself playing double game being in the opposition. yet people must get together with the preofessionals who loves our motherland and take present ruling dictator in to task.

if law is not respected, if corruption and murders are not investigated, If gallows are not introduced, if thugs rule and if intelectuals are not recognised and respected then we are heading towards a failed state! we will be not respected as a country.

Also we remember the era where judges residences were stoned. Judiciary also has created unnecessary situation with judgement outside their jurisdiction. However threatening judges can not be condoned.

Come on ! It is very possible that calls have been made by some party in order accuse the government of intimidation. At this point in the time govt would not want to do do something like this.

its clearly understood who is behind all these threatening calls. and this will be just another incident where the justice will not prevail as the way things are happening in the country today no one can speak or work against the present regime. it is a very sad situation and sooner or later someone had to intervene and stop all these nonsense.
