    -First they came for the Communists but I was not a Communist so I did not speak out. Then they came for the Socialists and the Trade Unionists but I was not one of them, so I did not speak out. Then they came for the Jews but I was not Jewish so I did not speak out. And when they came for me, there was no one left to speak out for me. - Martin Niemöller

    Most important system in a country is the legal system. Now no one will have faith and will not be able to rely on the legal system anymore. At this point Sri Lanka is turning into monarch and losing all its democratic features. Truly feel like losing my breath

    These fools cannot understand that interference of Judiciary in Sri Lanka would justify Establishing an International Tribunal in Europe.

    As far as this government is concerned: Transparency is the new garment of the King, who in actual fact is walking naked: Due Process means what the King wants to do regardless of what the law says and Rule of Law means what the half-baked idiot ministers like Weerawansa decide. Do we need further proof to say that this country is now doomed.

    buffalo, your one-track mentality also seems to have a digestive problem. Try to put things in perspective if your intelligence will allow you to.

    According with the rule of law, USA harrasing innocent Muslims in USA and monitoring each and ever Muslin living in USA by FBI. Muslims mosques monitoring by FBI, there is no religious freedom in USA. Guantamalo prison, drone attact by USA, according with the rule of international law? Last presidential election it's cleary showing WHITE USA and MINORITY USA.
