    I think Courts better severely warn these people that it is time to stop these frivolous cases which only serve to waste the court's valuable time. All had their fun

    He was never suitable to be the Chief Justice, he only became one as MR felt that Sarath Silva would do his bidding at the bench.

    This man sent SB, the broker to jail for contempt of court and then worked with him to advice MS act against the constitution.

    The senior retired as a chief justice. He must now spend his time in religious research and helping charities
