Lets see now how she is going to handle AGs Dept. and put Rajapakshes into jail to please UNP thug MPs' and their henchmen!
BUSHEL Friday, 25 August 2017 10:28 AM
RAJITH HAS TO PUT ONLY ONE SHOUT AT HER TO GET THINGS DONE THE WAY HE WANT. HE WILL BE THE MONITOR OF THE MINISTRY OF JUSTICE
Ranjith Friday, 25 August 2017 10:39 AM
I believe she will not be tough on the thieves and murderers of the previous regime. Jayampathy would have been a much better option. She was chosen to replace Wijedasa not the Minister of Justice.
ANTON Friday, 25 August 2017 10:24 AM
WE WISH SHE WOULD BECOME THE REAL LADY JUSTICE WITH A CALIBRATED WEIGHING SCALE AND A SHARP STEEL SWORD.

Good luck to you with the Blessings of the Triple Gem!
BUSHEL Friday, 25 August 2017 11:34 AM
TRIPLE GEM BLESSING IS NOT FOR A GOVERNMENT WITH ROBBERS.

BUSHEL Friday, 25 August 2017 11:39 AM

M.O.Daya Friday, 25 August 2017 06:35 PM
Bushel, we were left to see stars in broad daylight under the previous regime where corruption was well known but not talked about because of fear.

Congrats.... madam.... now God has given us a honest Justice Minister, hopefully all the culprits will be severely punished according to their wrong doings.
SeriouSena Friday, 25 August 2017 07:33 PM
@JabeerGod has nothing to do with corrupt Ministers, legal officers, judges or attorney. It's Satan who you should thank for.
Samson Samarawickreme Friday, 25 August 2017 11:08 AM

She is good. Hands are not tainted and comes from good stock. Wish her the best.
Freddy Yong Friday, 25 August 2017 12:33 PM
Thalatha is a good choice. No records of corruption and slander. Positive that she will put the judiciary to run on a straight track. Cheers and good luck, Madam.
IK Friday, 25 August 2017 07:58 PM
I wish you the blessings of the Triple Gem - it is a very powerful blessing to a good Buddhist.
Premalal Friday, 25 August 2017 12:57 PM
The most appropriate change was to attach Budda Sasana ministry to wild life ministry, going by the recent behavior of some section of the Buddhist clergy.
Brainmaster Friday, 25 August 2017 01:03 PM
As for me it looks like a good choice. I hope she can be tough enough to do this job. - And now lets get back also Rosy again. via DM Android App
Raz Friday, 25 August 2017 01:25 PM

Kiris Baba Amaray Friday, 25 August 2017 07:23 PM
This Giant Lady will crush the JO culprits very soon including Namal, Basil and Gotta.
Kandy Boy - Dilan Romero Friday, 25 August 2017 07:32 PM
From the Central Province .... we will give you 200% support, pls. take action against Namal, Aluthgamage, Rambukwela and Basil ... from tomorrow.
Aladeniya Kirimathaya Friday, 25 August 2017 07:36 PM

Ratnapala W.M.T. Friday, 25 August 2017 07:39 PM
From tomorrow we expect great service trapping MR's family members and JO rogues madam.
Bandula Seniviratne Friday, 25 August 2017 07:45 PM
Madam you will have to shut the mouths of Weerawansa and Gamampilla first.... do something they are already in the bad books.
Andy Friday, 25 August 2017 09:26 PM
GOD's Speed to end MR's past corruption.
Dasa Friday, 25 August 2017 10:30 PM
Dear Madam, I gave my precious vote to end to corruption and mass scale injustice that I witnessed during the previous regime. I am sure I am one of those people that did not have any personal intentions other than because I do not live in the country but had chance to vote when I was visiting. I hope you have a good will and strength to make our dream true. May triple gem bless you!
