    The beauty is Mr. Huzair, I presume he is still the Ambassador of Sri Lanka in Iran, is appearing for Mr. Bathiudeen. Why should he be brought down from Iran? Who pays the cost of all this? It is the poor man's money that is going to be spent to prove a notorious figure innocent.

    Law of the country should equal to every person. This type decision should not take because peoples will not obey the law.

    Does anyone know the fate of the 90,000 muslims evicted from Mannar in 1990, by LTTE then giving only 24 hours notice.
    Should'nt they be also resettled in their traditional home?

    Actually, contempt of court of this nature should be a non-bailable offence and the culprit should have been jailed to teach other thug politicians too a good lesson.

    navi Monday, 27 August 2012 07:38 AM

    Can we agree with his conduct as a minister. If the ministers are behaving like this can the government expect the general public to obay the law. This is shocking

    vaidy Monday, 27 August 2012 01:45 PM

    The Hon Minister should confine only to commerce ministry and not permitted to meddle with reconciliation and dsvelopment in the Northern province and in particular to Mannar

    TOTO Tuesday, 28 August 2012 12:24 PM

    Dont talk like idiot here, Mr. Bathiudeen offence not yet proofed.

    kaputakukula Monday, 27 August 2012 07:56 AM

    This minister violated the law with his rowdyism shaking the very foundation where the law is maintained. YET he is out on bail? Why the politicians are above the law in this country?

    manavika C Monday, 27 August 2012 07:59 AM

    Silence of GP going to be shocking.

    buffaloa citizen Monday, 27 August 2012 08:02 AM

    But then Lokka would have arranged everything like the way he arranged Bathiudeen to do what he has done.

    Basil Illangakook Monday, 27 August 2012 07:54 AM
