    Mr. President there is nothing to probe. Whole people in Mannar knows very well and more importantly Chief Magistrate Mr. A. Judsaan has already lodged a complaint with Police with the name of the minister involved. For GOD sake he is the Chief Magistrate and Police no need the President's directions. This shows police does not care Magistrates orders waiting only for the President to direct them ????

    this is the real executive presidency used to do a family business. system has manipulated wisely. god save a nation!!! One person do what he want.

    Amarapala Friday, 20 July 2012 11:09 PM

    Why does the president have to direct investigation. Does that mean IGP does not do his job if he is not directed by the president.

    Well said peeda mosa
    See the state of democracy, processes of implementation of law in this country..... ? I wouldn't be surprised if the speaker gave orders, since the minister is covered by parliamentary privileges. But why the president ?

    shane Saturday, 21 July 2012 12:04 AM

    finally the magistrate will be transfered and Ramukwalle will say
    it is usual in govt.service.matter ends.

    Ranjith Saturday, 21 July 2012 01:28 AM

    There is no control , God bless Sri Lanka

    Cobra Saturday, 21 July 2012 02:20 AM

    Because he doesn't want them to get to the bottom of it and expose one of his favorite thugs-Moda pissa, ekawath danne ne!!!

    Kautilya Saturday, 21 July 2012 02:42 AM

    That means IG and Police has not taken any action so far until MR direct inquiry. Vow what a police we have. Naduth horunge,Baduth Horunge

    Nodrog Saturday, 21 July 2012 03:08 AM

    Don't hold your breath if you think justice will prevail. Its only a facade. Either nothing will come of the inquiry or some small fry will be found guilty.

    nicky karunarathna Saturday, 21 July 2012 03:35 AM

    MR please ask your ministers to be humble and abide by the law and rules of the law of the land. I can recall you said in a world forum that - government only the caretaker of the land and not ruler. Is that correct?

    Calistus Jayatilleke Saturday, 21 July 2012 03:49 AM

    The IGP has to wait for orders from the President along with the conclusions to be reached according to the wishes of the government when it comes to suspects who are part and parcel of the government. Remember, we do not have independent Police commission now, and one man's word is law. Nothing will happen in this case other than the judge getting a transfer or even the sack for not listening to a Minister.

    perera Friday, 20 July 2012 09:57 PM

    sheer waate of time and money because the outcome is predictable.
    does every one need directives from this president to even use the toilet

    Thomas Saturday, 21 July 2012 04:44 AM

    He is your Excellency's Minister, he has broken the law of the country by threatening a Magistrate, ARREST him and then hold an inquiry., as your law do with an ordinary citizen of this country.

    solico Saturday, 21 July 2012 04:49 AM

    the end of the case

    perumal Saturday, 21 July 2012 06:04 AM

    The best way out is to hand over the case to UPFA courts where that whore of Avissawella will appear for the accused.

    abdulla Saturday, 21 July 2012 06:37 AM

    How long will take this inquiry? 6 Months. And no results.

    Vicks Saturday, 21 July 2012 06:37 AM

    Question: Why does the President have to prod the government servants to execute their duties ?

    Ansrwer: Because, he is the EXECUTIVE President!

    Richardson Saturday, 21 July 2012 08:37 AM

    Behead the culprit and send to Saudi As our Ambasador.

    Yehiya Saturday, 21 July 2012 08:56 AM

    If not interfear of IGP & Army commander jobs. They will do the job. If they are free to job lot of crimes & corruption under control.

    patriot Saturday, 21 July 2012 03:31 PM

    .Because only the President has the supreme power above all others. He is the King!!

    Jagath Leanage Saturday, 21 July 2012 05:43 PM

    Surely he would have instructed I.G.P. to take Magistrate into custody.

    suraj Friday, 20 July 2012 05:52 PM

    this shows the Police Top Brass has to get the 'ok' from Govt to do their official duty, if not nothing happens, no wonder why so many Child Rapes are happening at an alarming rate and murders taking place all over country . We now know who is responsible for these

    balus Friday, 20 July 2012 04:37 PM

    maybe he is behind it
    i wont be surprised

    peeda mossa Friday, 20 July 2012 04:45 PM

    Why does the President have to prod the government servants to execute their duties ?

    shantha madawela Friday, 20 July 2012 04:37 PM

    Still cheating not only people, but judges also....

    NADARAJAH SETHURUPAN Friday, 20 July 2012 05:01 PM

    no time limits?

    brinthan Friday, 20 July 2012 05:01 PM

    the culprit is the friend and minister of ruling party then what will happen?

    CHANDRAPALA Friday, 20 July 2012 05:06 PM

    It seems that without the instructions of President the Police Chief is unable to take immediate action regarding this issue. All Public Servants are in the same boat including the Election Commissioner.

    cp Friday, 20 July 2012 04:59 PM

    Does police awaits directives for other cases from president?

    path Friday, 20 July 2012 05:11 PM

    usual thing...ooooo nothing will judeson not going to get justice.....hahahaha.....asiawe acharya

    Balu Siva Friday, 20 July 2012 05:37 PM

    It will be the same result that befell the Bhartha Lakshman Case.

    realist Friday, 20 July 2012 04:08 PM

    The president has to direct the IGP to do his job? What is wrong with the IGP, he didn't read his job description?

    Shabarathnam Friday, 20 July 2012 05:50 PM

    It is crystal clear that World News Agencies will throw more light on this incident. As nations we are worried Mr. MR. This country is not your own property. Do Not Spoil the image of our motherland.

    Sri Minnal Friday, 20 July 2012 05:49 PM

    We have had enough probe and investigation. Ministers are more powerful than judges in this government.

    kiribath Friday, 20 July 2012 06:17 PM

    his face looks thi tha ta - matha,

    Rom Friday, 20 July 2012 06:24 PM

    Obviously!! They would have not proseeded fearing repocution!!!

    chamila Friday, 20 July 2012 07:13 PM

    Mahinda acting like a baby who don't know any thing

    Imran Hussein Friday, 20 July 2012 07:59 PM

    Sri Lanka's best comedian cum Villain.

    Jagath Friday, 20 July 2012 08:29 PM

    Exactly you are correct, Sri Lanka is alrady a lawless country.

    Rangan Friday, 20 July 2012 09:08 PM

    So the IGP and the Police did not have the Free Hand to do what they need to do!

    Manik Friday, 20 July 2012 10:00 PM

    Thanks to 18th amendment.
