Colombo Chief Magistrate Gihan Pilapitiya today ordered the CID to arrest the suspects and and produce them in court on July 13 on charges of having maligned the National Flag by displaying a distorted version during a protest opposite the Bribery Commission on April 20.

The Cinnamon Gardens Police in a report filed in Court requested that the investigations be handed over to the CID.

The Magistrate acceding to the request directed the CID to take over the investigations and arrest the suspects who maligned the national flag by waving a distorted version of the flag during the demonstration held opposite the BC when former defence secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa reported to the BC to record his statement.

    The lawyers who violated court orders and held fabricated flags must be severely punished to set examples for others. They must be removed from the register. How can they challenge constitution and raise racism endangering the harmony. This extrimism is a real threat to the integrity.

    I do not think this is distorted national flag. It is a earlier version of flag. Hence it is not national flag. via DM Android App

    ALL THOSE WHO HAD TAKEN THE LAW INTO THEIR HANDS AND. DIS RESPECT ED THE N ATION AL FLAG SHOULD BE GIVEN MAXIMUM PUNISHMENT SO THAT NOBODY WILL DARE DO SUCH DIRTY THING IN FUTURE. SEVERE PUNISHMENT SHOULD BE GIVEN TO THE LAWYERS WHO HELD THE DEROGATORY FLAG IN THEIR HANDS. ..... via DM Android App

    In Sri Lanka Law and the Law Courts are treated with contempt. When Court orders to refrain from processions, the thugs do not conform to law but act in their own way. It has become the culture of the country. This must be stopped. Hence, all who act in contempt of Court must be severely punished as a lesson to others.

    very good, all these racists should be taught a good lesson no repetitions.

    The God Father Saturday, 09 May 2015 11:48 AM

    I agree with Real patriot, this crime is not as simple as it sounds / looks, of course the Maximum punishment.

    This is the work of the so called first class patriots of the previous regime. Now everyone can see their true colours.
