    Sam Fernando Tuesday, 05 October 2010 02:05 AM

    pwc Tuesday, 05 October 2010 03:36 AM

    Josh Tuesday, 05 October 2010 04:17 AM

    Some say that the Law is no respecter of Persons whilst some others say that the Law is an Ass.Where are we in the in the case of the Galant General?

    Darth Vader Monday, 04 October 2010 12:44 PM

    May the force be with you, General!

    malkanthi Tuesday, 05 October 2010 04:43 AM

    But SF should guard his mouth in order to be a successful political gentleman. He is no more a military personality!

    Yehiya-Doha Monday, 04 October 2010 12:58 PM

    N0ow you are higher than General rank. You may be next nobel winner.

    malkanthi Tuesday, 05 October 2010 04:45 AM

    Aruna you sould like SF when provoked, which led him to this tragedy.

    suran Monday, 04 October 2010 01:03 PM

    General you are the true hero.

    Farzan Tuesday, 05 October 2010 05:02 AM

    Long live SF, the real hero to the Sri Lankans

    mahesh Tuesday, 05 October 2010 05:27 AM

    Kalisang Tuesday, 05 October 2010 07:19 PM

    Mitsubishi Galant ?

    Kamiss Monday, 04 October 2010 01:17 PM

    Rarely we see all opposition parties coming together. Does this show something more to come?

    Kalisang Tuesday, 05 October 2010 07:19 PM

    Then you should be in jail.

    Wasantha Monday, 04 October 2010 01:22 PM

    Not only the Lawyers, irrespective of politiccal affilations, hope that other professional bodies and organizations too rally round to safeguard the democracy. That is the need of the hour. Hurry up.

    Justice Monday, 04 October 2010 01:25 PM

    Nobel price for wt? Killing media personalities and assaulting them ?

    Ranbanda Tuesday, 05 October 2010 08:47 PM

    When will the justice prevail?

    Labby Monday, 04 October 2010 01:30 PM

    Let's hope this protest will not fizzle out after some time, as it always happens in this country. True, the government will do nothing about it but it will be a good eye-opener to the masses who are still reluctant to speak out against this dictatorial rule.

    nalin Monday, 04 October 2010 01:34 PM

    All Lawyers of the Country must come to Colombo Court of Appeal when the Writ Application against taken up before the President of Court of Appeal. All Lawyers must remind to the judges that if justice is not done according to law they and their children who have been treated by the Government in various ways will have to suffer severe consequences not in law but by people's powers.

    hewage Monday, 04 October 2010 01:34 PM

    How come the lawyers do protest in front of the high court.Do they undustand the law of the country.And how they disturb the prison officers doing their job.When they block the vehicle any body can blast a bomb or shoot.If something happened like that do you take the responsibility or just pass it to the goverment.Please answer honestly. If you are sure why dont aurgue in the court proove and get him released.Thats why he had brought in to the court. Take the time for that without wasting time of other people.yours time we dont care.You can dance anywhere as you like but dont disturb genaral public which is a crime that you can be punished.If you lawyers dont know this leave your black coats pls.

    Thasneem Monday, 04 October 2010 01:39 PM

    MR if you pardon SF your will go into history as a great leader

    Mylanka Monday, 04 October 2010 01:42 PM

    Sorry General.... this is lanka ..... you tried to claim up..!!!???

    naamal Monday, 04 October 2010 01:54 PM

    Every minute General is kept in illegal custody may the triple Gem protect him for million years and increase the AKUSAL of those who are responsible for this for million years to suffer along with their children.

    sudu Monday, 04 October 2010 02:01 PM

    Of course he is the true hero!!!!! Nothing to worry about those who have done this to you are already in fire and burning in their lifetime. May you live along dear true patriot.

    demon Monday, 04 October 2010 02:29 PM

    seems like SF gonna be the opposition leader...ela kiri ! this is what should happen...good luck may god bless all...

    sashani Monday, 04 October 2010 02:32 PM

    SF is a real hero.this is a illegal decision.a victor always protects by gods you can go forward without any obstacles

    Aruna Jayawardane Monday, 04 October 2010 02:35 PM

    who is this "Justice"? May be a henchman of "Junta". The guys like you should be stoned to death including your masters. "Bone lickers"

    Ranjan Monday, 04 October 2010 02:41 PM

    Who KILLED media personalities??. The killers are celebrating the General's confined to jail.

    Ranjan Monday, 04 October 2010 02:43 PM

    Yeah the new KING KEKILLA.

    Ossan Salam - Doha Monday, 04 October 2010 02:52 PM

    Anyway... it is not a good sign demonstrating or chanting slogans in front of the courts..... the case to be challanged in side the court but not out side....we do not have to teach law for lawyers

    Sue Monday, 04 October 2010 03:05 PM

    The honest answer is "is there a law of the country"? and if so, no one is sure anymore that justice will be done as it should be. Mervyn Silva is a good example and if you want more examples can give some more. Please don't look thru blue colored glasses and you will be able to see a clear picture of exactly what's happening.

    Athukorala Monday, 04 October 2010 03:19 PM

    Justice, Did you see him kill those? I suggest you be injustice

    anu Monday, 04 October 2010 04:13 PM

    i hope they do their protest without disturbing the public.

    citizen1 Monday, 04 October 2010 05:06 PM

    Too late.. people are waking up.

    JM Tuesday, 05 October 2010 07:28 AM

    Lets be grateful for all who braved to be present when our hero was brought to Court. Long live SF you are true son of this country. The blood you shed to give future to our people will never go waste. May God give you all the stamina to endure the horrible sentence our politicians and their goons gave.
