    This was not an attack on the judge. It was a preplanned attack on the policemen escorting the judge. Whom are we trying to fool.

    I think most of TNA Mps responsible to these violence in Jaffna district. when jaffna people attack several time to military personal they never condemn these attack. when tamil people involved they need action. this is call double standard.

    On one hand they want the security forces removed from north and from the same mouth they complain about security. Irony.
