The Colombo Additional Magistrate Praharshika Ranasinghe released two suspects who were arrested when they were preparing to paste posters in Polhengoda, Kelaniya publicizing JVP’s 21st Ill Maha Viru Samuruwa.

The Magistrate said that these area do not come under the 2008 No 40 highways act and rejected the charges produced by the police that they had violated the act. It was also proven that the suspects were taken into custody before they started pasting the posters. (TFT)

    Indiaphobic @ Smart Aleck, where and when in India pasting posters prevented, write your impudent comments on wall!

    Will this Judge be transferred to the Vanni?

    Ryan Tuesday, 16 November 2010 06:42 AM

    JVP should be banned immediately. Verdicts should be inline with the mandate of the people if it is related to politics.

    Just that you are,obviously, one of the beneficiaries of the current "democratic" government!

    Cobra Tuesday, 16 November 2010 01:08 AM

    At least we have a few magistrates with guts! The rest please follow suit.

    Sampath Monday, 15 November 2010 10:58 PM

    What will happen to this Magistrate in near future?
    Will be sacked or transfered some other places?

    Pasting posters relating to a peaceful event is a democratic right.. How could the police have filed a case in the first instance?

    Assay Bayai! Monday, 15 November 2010 04:10 PM

    why didn't they transfer this case to the COURT MARTIAL! isn't that's also a court now?

    Anver Monday, 15 November 2010 08:43 AM

    It is heartening to see there are judges courage enough to give just verdicts without favour.

    impartial Monday, 15 November 2010 11:57 AM

    Wont there be an ammendment to the Highway bill 2008 No 40 in the future...!!!

    Smart Aleck Monday, 15 November 2010 11:48 AM

    Minister Athauda! So you think that honourable judges like this must be trained by the Indians? You should get your head examined at Mulleriyawa.

    My god, we have justice in Kelaniya.. Has the world turn around or the Sun rised from West?

    Under a military junta they should have been found guilty.
