    Yes, what was this sudden illness? Ask his kith and kin. Ask his security detail . Finally ask his employers.

    Great loss for the country .. As a Sinhalese, I urge Sri Lankan government to appoint another Tamil justice as his replacement. Plurality in Court of Appeal is more urgent than ever.

    These are the right royal gentleman who serve their country with esteem and reverence. Now tell me where this buss word "reconciliation" come from with this high calibre personnel serve the country without any discrimination? Where this word "Tamil" coming from when absolute wholesome gentlemen serve anywhere in the country with real patriotic fervour?

    Appointing someone just because he is a Tamil is just as bad as not appointing someone because he is a Tamil. The President of the Court of Appeal should be appointed his or her merit and integrity.

    Why do good honest men of integrity, who are not afraid to take just and fair decisions whatever the repercussions will be, die early in their life ?
