Case against Hirunika?

22 May 2012 07:49 am - 31     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


A case will be filed against Hirunika Premachandra for the contempt of court   making statements on the court’s inquiries regarding the shooting at Mulleriyawa case, Counsel to MP Duminda Silva, Hemantha Warnakulasuriya stated today at the Colombo Magistrate’s Court.

He further said that such statement made by the daughter of late Bharatha Lakshman Premachandra could be harmful for the integrity of the court.

In reply to this, the lawyer of the wife of Bharatha Lakshman stated there were no such statements made by Hirunika against the court and in fact she had made statements about the inefficiency of the CID regarding the arrest of Duminda Silva.

He also said he would take this matter to the International Court. Acknowledging this the magistrate while stigmatizing the CID stated that the court could only make orders and carrying out them rests with the respective authorities.

He said the CID should take immediate action regarding the matter and the court would not be held responsible for that.

    Law is blind (impartial ). But the unfortunate thing is that sometimes the police is blind in a completely different way ! None is so blind as the one who doesn't want to see !

    Why people make such statements about the courts and judiciary, Its not that difficult to find that out, ask a street vendor, he would reply. After all Hirunika was the effected party.

    This is what happens when King Kekille rules the country. Only the victims are sent to jail.

    Clearly, it is time we citizens realized impunity at all levels of governance to levels unheard of before.

    If she joins any of the present political lot in the country she too will end-up like them. She should think of taking a new political path.

    Grumpy Tuesday, 22 May 2012 07:25 PM

    If the CID cannot follow the court order and arrest Duminda, they should be charged for contempt of court.

    My dear learned Mr.Hemantha Warnakulasuriya if Hirunika statements are (contempt of court ) court will decide not you
    you have to see in to the interest of MP Duminda Silva

    Labby Tuesday, 22 May 2012 09:53 AM

    Integrity of the court !!? Does the court have any now?

    shantha madawela Tuesday, 22 May 2012 10:02 AM

    --sana-- Wednesday, 23 May 2012 05:49 AM

    yeah, she looks too beautiful for a SL politician

    Yohan Perera Tuesday, 22 May 2012 10:15 AM

    Getting involved in SL politics is like sleeping with Dogs. You are covered with fleas by the time you realize you have been sleeping with the wrong company.

    Samanya Ratawesiya Tuesday, 22 May 2012 10:23 AM

    Don't be surprised if Hirunika will be sent to Jail for insulting courts

    Jayasiri Tuesday, 22 May 2012 10:25 AM

    I as an individual think that the court is itsel in contempt of court some times.

    buffaloa citizen Tuesday, 22 May 2012 10:36 AM

    Dont insult dogs, because they are honest and faithful. Sri Lankan politics is pure racism, criminality and thuggery.

    Rahmathullah Tuesday, 22 May 2012 11:31 AM

    Now they are after this innocent and defenseless girl? It is a real crime against humanity.

    godvin Tuesday, 22 May 2012 11:32 AM

    this is the time people should take the law into their hands against injustice

    ron paul Wednesday, 23 May 2012 03:16 AM

    she's beautiful though

    Fusion Tuesday, 22 May 2012 11:46 AM

    Contempt of court? Remember SB Dissanayake was jailed for 2-years. I wonder whether someone is planning the same for Ms. Premachandra.

    Shiyam Tuesday, 22 May 2012 12:15 PM

    Doesn't the law empowers the magistrate to put the ineffective authorities behind the bars?
