The Supreme Court said today the ignorance of the law was not an excuse and ordered the IGP to pay a compensation of Rs.25,000 to each of the two JVP activists arrested by the Police for pasting posters which read, "Stop Media Oppression and Restore Democracy".

Justice Priyasath Dep with Justices Sisira J. De Abrew and Anil Gooneratne delivered the judgment in a fundamental rights petition filed by JVP activists Karunanayake Joseph Benedict Silva and Chandrasena Hettiarachchi. They were arrested by the Dematagoda police on January 12, 2009 while they were pasting posters in Dematagoda.

    The main question is whether this payment will be made by the IGP in the capacity of his position which is out of the Police Department funds or from his personal pocket. This needs to go from his personal funds and not by the public purse.
