AFTER THE WAR RACISM HAS GROWN TO THE TOP AMONG THE MAJORITY THAT SHOULD NOT LEAD TO ANOTHER CIVIL WAR

The intimidation of lawyers is common since most lawyers are corrupt as they do not practice what they preach. They take an oath but as an initiation they show good faith but in the long run they are racists and do not abide the law themselves. Its too early to know what really happened in Mannar as the Magistrate could have abused his powers or the Minister could have abused his. If a small group of lawyers protest clearly shows some doubts to what really happened on ground as its still 'beyond reasonable doubts".

This is major issue. First need inquiry. People no faith in law & judiciary. Every where people do the law. All the part of law professional responsible. White flag judgement & NSB is good example to another incident. This must bring to the no interfereance & same time people must have the faith of judiciary officers. If they bias what is the use of law.
