    What is the point of painstaking investigations carried out by the CID – they are simply a waste of manpower and time. To make the work of the CID, the Government should get rid of the Soththi Attorney General first. It is being claimed by a website today in bold headlines and a fivehundred word story that a full report including incontrovertible evidence of assault battery and sexual abuse of domestics working in the house of Supreme Court Judge Sarath Abrew by Sarath Abrew has been forwarded by the CID to the A-G Dept; but that the Attorney General will not sign the papers to authorize prosecution.

    I quote: “A deputy solicitor general too in this connection has recommended based on the indictments to file case in the high court , and only the AG’s signature remains to be placed , yet Yuvanjana the AG is wantonly holding back , and dilly dallying it is learnt.”

    How can other Supreme Court judges sit alongside this villain in the Supreme Court if they have an iota of self respect. If the Chief Justice is allocating work to this rascal, on which planet does he reside, to not know? Does he too have no shame?

    Where is Sirisena; where is Ranil Wickremasinghe? Are they asleep while the last bastian of decency and the rule of law is being disgraced by a villain of the Supreme Court?

    Let us all be aware that once the Supreme Court loses respect, the country has lost it dignity.

    They don’t investigate why Ekneligoda behaved the way he behaved. What ever the he lived, his behaviour would have got him in big trouble. Investigating and revealing why ekneligoda behaved that was very important. It was a pro-LTTE stand.

    Sri lankan bureaucrats do not know haw to handle problems.

    Because of that, special interest groups win.

    We know why Ravi KArunanayake behaved the way he behaved.

    Department of Attorney General cannot cope up with a workload – Attorney General take everything into his hand and entire legal system becomes absolute abysmal.
    High-time this Department be consumed by a powerfully active Independent Judicatory Commission!
