    sam Wednesday, 06 October 2010 02:36 PM

    Are we ever going to see the judges taking a stand for democracy like their counterparts in Pakistan? or have they now been fully politicised?

    Said Hussein Wednesday, 06 October 2010 02:40 PM

    General Sarath Fonseka is our National Hero. We all should join hands together in whatever forms to get him released. We do not need a communist regime in Sri Lanka.

    Said Hussein - U.K.

    Ranjith Wednesday, 06 October 2010 02:42 PM

    SF has done enough to our nation by putting the full stop to LTTE... he doesnt have to ask for pardon... but this is our time to raise our voices and take him out of the jail...

    Labby Wednesday, 06 October 2010 03:47 PM

    For how long more can they sustain this show of strength ?

    Lamaya Wednesday, 06 October 2010 04:02 PM
