UNP MP Sujeeva Senasingha appeared in Court today over a verbal spat he had with a Buddhist monk last December in the Supreme Court premises following a case involving General Sarath Fonseka.

The Colombo Chief Magistrate had issued notice on the MP to appear in Court after the Keselwatta police had filed the case alleging that the MP had verbally abused the monk when he was leaving the Supreme Court premises.

After the MP appeared in Court today to hear the charges against him the Colombo Chief Magistrate released him on personal bail and fixed the trial for 26 October.

    This is rampant waste of public funds. Somebody who puts an end to all this nonsense will be true patriot and not the cardboard heroes like WW...

    - More like the 'rule of LOW'!

    On petty cases our court is wasting time whereas un-countable rapes, arson, kidnapping, robbery etc are taking place in the front of the naked eye of the law and no cases are recorded nor suspects are caught. This is going to the country that will be called 'WONDER OF ASIA'.

    I have had dozens of verbal spats in the last few months. Should I be in court?

    what a waste of public money.

    namal Monday, 19 July 2010 09:39 AM

    is this even a crime? having an argument with a monk?

    Smart Aleck Monday, 19 July 2010 09:55 AM

    If that monk's allegation is proved to be false will the monk be punished for making a false statement to the Police or for giving evidence? Or will he be given a pat on the back and told to try again ? Why did the Police not refer the parties to a Mediation Board?

    Definitely Monk is not from "Hela Urumaya". Otherwise no case. They know how to respond, when they are abused.

    Arshad Monday, 19 July 2010 10:31 AM

    Just a waste of time and money

    Say it to the marines - they say.

    you probably should, but not in a criminal court, but for defamation...
