    Do we give instruction to Judiciary ?Thought they are independent............

    Alex Monday, 10 December 2018 07:02 PM

    This is not a very healthy move. There is something fishy. Any kind of communication by the plaintiff/respondent in a case, with the judiciary, is an offence and is unethical.

    Janaka Monday, 10 December 2018 07:34 PM

    That would be interfering with the judiciary, wouldn't it?

    SKM Monday, 10 December 2018 07:44 PM

    Independent judiciary? Does this fellow know what he is talking about - now every donkey is talking on behalf of Sirisena. These are adding to that case filed about his insanity.

    Wimal Monday, 10 December 2018 07:47 PM

    shairaz Monday, 10 December 2018 07:53 PM

    Does the president has the rights though ?

    Kumara Dharmarathne Monday, 10 December 2018 08:35 PM

    Mr.Wimal Weerawansa, you are telling President as usual and the way you have been telling the previous President to interfere into judiciary. No one can force CJ to deliver his order in a rush just because you are in a hurry. This matter itself shows how you ruled the country when you guys were in power.

    Perumal Tuesday, 11 December 2018 07:43 AM

    Hush, the most learned gentleman in MR's cabinet talks.

    Hands off the Judiciary!

    People need to analyze politicians' statements and actions in order to determine whether they are mentally capable of serving the their constituent. Based on their analysis, they should determine whom to keep as their elected representatives and whom voted out in the next election,

    Ranil, Rajapakse and Sirisena should be tried for High Treason for betraying the people of Sri Lanka.

    Justice Tuesday, 11 December 2018 07:20 AM

    This guy's head too needs to be examined, on an urgent basis.

    Sambo Tuesday, 11 December 2018 07:40 AM

    We should be ashamed for allowing this type of uneducated and stupid to be given a ministry post. He only has a foul mouth. They only know to find a way to steal.

    FOUZI Tuesday, 11 December 2018 07:49 AM

    President informs Wimale. And he becomes the official spokesperson for Maithri. Wimale's tone can be understood by watching the complete relevant video. This is MS- MR- Wimale style of influencing the judiciary.

    ravin Tuesday, 11 December 2018 07:59 AM

    Well !! his interest is because of the country?. How to escape of his sins?. Or did president got his advice just before 26th October?
