    I don't know how he became CJ of Sri Lanka. Disgrace to the profession and worse to the country.

    We Lankans are having short memory that is used by these people conveniently. Thilanka Sumathipala obtained bail illegally and in most disgraced way and he is still in politics and this guy while as CJ caught red handed by the Police at the roadside in a vehicle with a lady in a compromising position. This was reported by Lasantha in Sunday Leader.

    The man who devalued the Judiciary in SriLanka.he was the CHEAP JUSTICE and not the CHIEF JUSTICE ?

    Kangaroo Wednesday, 23 January 2019 04:18 PM

    He was a 'Chief Injustice'

    K perera Wednesday, 23 January 2019 04:53 PM

    This idiot is a total disgrace. He is the one solely responsible for several illegal rulings which in turn led to the sad situation we face currently. Just an oxygen thief.

    He is a double tongue person. His apology to the nation on saving Hambantota judgement went viral at that time. DM please publish that video too in this news item

    You have disgraced the CJ's position. You have disgraced yourself multiple times in public. There is no need to point your finger at others. Now go away!

    We also have to condem the lawyers defend him.
