    This is a snub to the judiciary. Will someone go to the courts against this ?

    VJ Thursday, 23 May 2019 08:27 AM

    This decision is subject to judicial review I believe. Who will be next? Duminda?

    Gamarala has nothing to loose. He had got himself into a pit where no crane can reach. Good, more ammo for the candidate opposing the Bud.

    Sri Lanka will never progress until it stops being a quasi-theocracy. So much religion, so little morality and human decency.
