    The learned minister talks of giving star rating system to electrical appliances. My I suggest that he also gives star rating system to the service provided by the electricity board. In some area not far from Colombo there are power interruptions almost daily. Sometime two or three times a day. The CEB can then charge the consumer based on the star rating of the service.

    Arrest the electricians and labouerers in the courts. Power supply was smooth in other buildings in the area. This is sabotage.

    Navem Friday, 15 October 2010 10:20 AM

    Lam, you don't get ministry people or CEB employees inside courts this is an inside job

    wasala Friday, 15 October 2010 07:38 AM

    the case was going against the government with so many contradictions in witnesses accounts
    this is democracy in Sri Lanka. there was no power disruption in the area, only in the courts.
    Sabo

    AMICUS Friday, 15 October 2010 10:25 AM

    THE CASE REVEALS ELECTRIFYING DETAILS. SO POWER INTERRUPTION BY POERFUL HANDS CANNOT BE RULED OUT.

    Faqi Friday, 15 October 2010 07:39 AM

    How convenient for the Government? Did the electricians come with a white flag.?

    vijith Friday, 15 October 2010 07:43 AM

    baba boo don't talk nonsense are you a real baba? can't you see that this was an inside job in courts? there was power in all other buildings, do you want the minister to come and guard the courts to prevent anybody from cutting wires?

    henagahapan Friday, 15 October 2010 07:46 AM

    oh my god ... how cheap are these people.. power supply was fine in the whole area...
    ... people rise up against this stupid madness....

    Wasantha Friday, 15 October 2010 07:51 AM

    This inside job has done with a sinster motive. Delay of justice to SF is the main objective behind this.

    lankaman Friday, 15 October 2010 08:05 AM

    this is exactly my thought also. for the first time in my life, i'm starting to feel uncomfortable with the way democracy or what is left of it in the country is heading

    Chandi Friday, 15 October 2010 08:06 AM

    MoJ, install a stand by Generator for the SC immediately!! How can such low things happen in the "Wonder of Asia".

    willow Friday, 15 October 2010 08:06 AM

    what mockery, just throw this case

    malinda Friday, 15 October 2010 08:07 AM

    Aiyo Baba you can't expect the CEB to go behind the two legged and four legged rats in courts

    rif Friday, 15 October 2010 08:08 AM

    if 2nd Nov Happen???????again

    sunanda Friday, 15 October 2010 08:08 AM

    If it is only in this building, there is something behind it.

    May be to take to time to influence judgement.

    chatura Friday, 15 October 2010 08:12 AM

    the proceedings were strongly in favour of SF and this is how the govt reacts

    Justice delayed is justice denied

    Wasantha Friday, 15 October 2010 08:21 AM

    Next they will cut off electricity in the cell where SF being imprisoned, to unable to watch TV.

    Cynic Friday, 15 October 2010 08:32 AM

    Those in power, sensing the beginning of the end of their power, disrupt power to cling on to power.

    knight rider Friday, 15 October 2010 08:57 AM

    ha ha ha how interesting.. the dramatic event looks like one of this cheap movies.

    knight rider Friday, 15 October 2010 08:58 AM

    stick to the subject man

    Smart Aleck Friday, 15 October 2010 12:27 PM

    Now this will give them time to coach the witness who is struggling under cross examination. Justitia, where art thou?

    True LANKAN Friday, 15 October 2010 01:04 PM

    No generator ???? what is happening here ?

    Calistus Jayatilleke Saturday, 16 October 2010 08:05 AM

    Shows that the courts have no powers on their own unless power is given by other powerful people!

    Lam Friday, 15 October 2010 09:23 AM

    power minister yesterday said to save energy so his employee disturbed power inside the court to obey his order
