Democratic National Alliance (DNA) MPs Vijitha Herath and Ajith Kumara, who were arrested last evening over charges of assaulting police officers in Galle, have been remanded till next week.

The police charged that the two Parliamentarians assaulted the policemen after arriving at the Galle police station last evening to secure the release of four protesters who were taken into custody by the police during the clash which erupted in Galle yesterday.

The two MPs were later arrested for assaulting the police officers. (Daily Mirror online)

    Pure pressure on the opposition parliamentarians by the GOSL. These intimidation's and threats would intensify until they have their 2/3 in the parliament.
    Soon we would be like China, One party democracy.

    clifford Friday, 13 August 2010 06:38 AM

    this is what you call democracy in Sri Lanka. Only GOD can save this country

    Mohamed Friday, 13 August 2010 06:28 AM

    Is there an opposition in Sri Lanka?????

    Girigoris Friday, 13 August 2010 06:18 AM

    The law of the jungle has set in. It is now a very serious situation for the average citizen of this country. Where will it end. Are we on the bridge to "No Were"?

    Gamini Friday, 13 August 2010 06:10 AM

    Sanje Friday, 13 August 2010 05:55 AM

    It is waste of time taking about the law of this country.

    Thusi Friday, 13 August 2010 03:54 AM

    Typical JVP thugs...

    TUAN Friday, 13 August 2010 05:28 AM

    First of all the present IGP should be terminated from his post. He is a puppet. There's no so called democracy in this country.

    malith Friday, 13 August 2010 05:27 AM

    when there was a protest in front of UN office, no tear gas nothing , But protest is against government tear gas, plastic bullet and everything. Why were Wimal's supporters not arrested or remanded they when assaulted the policemen. What a law in Sri lanka ?
    Suba anagatayak!!!!!

    Democracy is at risk when demonstrations turn violent.

    Concerned Friday, 13 August 2010 04:48 AM

    This is a clear demonstration of the type of autocratic rule we have in our country. How can we show the world that we are a democratic nation? Haven't our rulers learnt lessons from our recent past that this method is very short lived?

    M.H.Sheriff Friday, 13 August 2010 04:40 AM

    Once democracy is established.

    kassa Friday, 13 August 2010 04:36 AM

    Everybody has to obey to the Sri Lankan law. But sometimes this law goes in their favour.

    basi Friday, 13 August 2010 04:22 AM

    There was no action against Weerawansa.. See the action against opposition parties.

    rasika Friday, 13 August 2010 04:19 AM

    When the country will be free from this JVP menace

    willows Friday, 13 August 2010 04:17 AM

    jungle law is at work

    Prabath Friday, 13 August 2010 04:12 AM

    Remand them forever...

    Lam Friday, 13 August 2010 04:12 AM

    I like to go to the police to make a complaint regarding a financial transaction issue with another person, but i gave up that idea now to go to the police station.

    Michael Friday, 13 August 2010 04:09 AM

    When an armed officer of their own kind is assaulted, the police are keen to take legal action, but when an unarmed public officer who is unable to defend himself against abuse is assaulted, in front of the police, they turn a blind eye and have still not arrested the lunatic offender despite him roaming in the open under police protection. Is the law there to protect the innocent civilian or armed officers, thugs, goons and power hungry politicians? His excellency the president should have taken action against the policemen who watched over and encouraged the Kelaniya episode before sending the minister home. The minister is a fool to do such things and we all know it, but the police inaction and encouragement was to please foolish tendencies of a politician. It is time we all stand up against fooling of the public by the holders of power.

    Good move to get rid of silly moves of JVPers

    Gayan Samarasekara Friday, 13 August 2010 03:57 AM

    False allegations to trap the opposition politicians. The Democracy is buried.
