    The time has come for all to unite, without resorting to cheap rhetoric. Let us establish a Society with proper virtues. Let us prevent the Riff Raff from entering the Legislature. Let Principles stand over friendship and kinship. We are here in this world for a short time, please live and let live. As much as your life is mportant to yourself, other’s lives are also important to them and you have no right to deny others for whatever reason, Religion, Race or Cast. We are all Humans and do not own anything as we have to leave everything behind when we go.

      Yes we should prevent the Riff Raff from entering the legislature. Until then this downward trend of all ethical values and decency norms will continue.

      The final show down between judiciary and executive is here! The Kangaroo Court called the PSC is DEAD IN THE WATER..
      Time for the citizens of Lanka, the people, FUTA, professionals,lawyers, doctors, teachers etc. to step up to oust the Rajapake dictatorship! Time is ripe for the SRI LANKA SPRING, Lankan citizens must go on the streets and ask the Rajapakssa Brothers to leave the chief Justice alone and go play with themselves.
      the people of Lanka have had as much as they can take from this barbaric regime. Enough is enough! Time for the criminal regime that is drunk with power and greed to get lost or be sent to the Hague for a war crimes trial!

        James Bond,
        Reading these comments for this post, one does not see any defender of this familial regime- like leela, dagobert etc..
        But as long as the uneducated masses who voted for this mafia are made to understand what is in store for them in the very near future. not only Bond but even superman or batman cannot fight and win this evil
        mafia.

      I agree with this campaign fully. All Institutions in Sri Lanka are being dismantled by the “Dictator Gone Mad”.

      It is time for Sri Lankans to stand up and fight.

    GOSL boasts of a 2/3 majority of which most of them are bought over by the Executive or hiding behind the “Satakaya” for their previous criminal records. If the Opposition together with all those who oppose the crushing of the Judiciary by the Executive could organise an island-wide petition electoral-wise with the name, age, address, signature etc., over 9 million out of the 10 million voters would like to sign and over 5 million would sign. Those who have no access to the petition could do so through internet. As per our Constitution, Peoples Power (2.7/3 or even over 1.5/3) is greater than the 2/3 majority in the Parliament. However, this Impeachment is going to be a TOTAL FLOP as all the peace-loving Sri Lankan Citizens don’t wish the Executive to manipulate the judiciary. The recent SC verdicts were not palatable to the aspirations of the Executive (damper to loot the national wealth) hence the Impeachment but this Lady is an academic unlike the thug type politicians and also very brave, honest and is working as per her conscience and also according to the Constitution.

      Not only those in the Judiciary but all those who are highly educated should remember that once they submit themselves to the whims and fancies of self-interested corrupt politicians their fate will be the same, hence they should guard themselves from such a folly at least in the future.

    It’s timely that all should sink their differences in protecting the independence of judiciary before it’s too late when a family dictatorship is enthroned. The Supreme Court had its own grave diggers for this sorry state of affairs when they ditched the very people they were supposed to protect in siding with the rulers and decapitated the peoples’ sovereignty through the 18th amendment and protection meted out to the deceitful crossover parliamentarians from eviction.Through these very acts they made a mockery of parliamentary democracy and find themselves up a gum tree at present.

    “Are you allowing Justice to be crushed by the Executive”?
    A good question.
    “Justice” for whom?
    Do all citizens enjoy ‘justice’ from the judiciary who keep silent or meekly approve arrest & incarceration of citizens as ‘requested’ by law enforcement,without consideration of bail & without any inquiry whatsoever,approve matters of burial of bodies of persons who died in custody as “matters of ‘national security'”?
    Why are murder cases involving politicians not heard for many months,why absence of proper ‘crime scene investigations’not queried,why are postmortem reports kept secret,why are 65,000 pending court cases allowed to clog the justice system,why are inquiries of unlawful,unnatural deaths conducted in secret?
    Do we want this type of judiciary?

      Justice: These are all due to the manupulation of the judiciary starting from the first executive president JRJ getting worser and infested to the following presidents. Also past CJ SN silva brought it to a higher corruption level and MR reached it’s climax. Also greed for money and corruption contributed to the current state. Maf.a occupied the parliament and cartels occupied Judiciary….now leading to the executive claiming for total unitary power grab. Time has come for true citizens to bail out and clean all three corrupt institutions.

    Sonlight is right, the executive presidential power is the problem. It is not easy for us to expect a full democracy without changing this corrupted, undemocratic system that has no Balance Of Power. This is one of the reason the Egyptians are fighting with Mosey, they do not want him to have the absolute power.

    Political vested interest are the ruling class, they have joined with their fellow politicians across the world they are part of the new corporate NWO, they will sell your land assets behind your back, as wage slaves and no stake in the corporation, there will be little you can do.
    We must build a world society based on human not material foundations
    Get the money lenders “out of the temple”
    Return the land back to small farmers ” small human scale is beautiful.
    Children at the top of the tree” in the end our society is only as strong as the poorest of us.

    The Judiciary did not become endangered after the CJ impeachment issue. It happened a few years ago. There was the issue of another woman judge who is alleged to have got the handsome gift of a brand new luxury vehicle for her daughter’s wedding gift – said to be Quid Pro Quo for a sensitive judgement. The current CJ could have called for the files and ensured the integrity of justice was not harmed.
    It was not done. They were all enjoying the spring sunshine until the can of worms was opened.

    Elsewhere I read the great fear of ex-Judge Warakawa whose life, he claims, is in danger because of the sentence he delivered in the Hamer multiple murder case (Dehiwala) The accused have used “their influence with those who matter” and are likely to secure a pardon. This must send shivers through most judges from now on.

    As my gardener was telling the driver the other day “okkama horu”
    That is the opinion of the hoi polloi, if the regime cares to know.

    Laws ‘common to everyone’are of no benefit to most people in a lopsided unequal society where the law is used as a tool for repression against people on diffrences of class,race or religion.The right to individual liberty means little to a woman who plucks tea for a pittance in the tea estate in Lanka or to those killed for marching in a demonstration to claim the land they were deprieved of by the state.
    When people speak about freedom and liberation what they really mean is liberation from all limitations and impediments which keeps them in bondage and from self-fulfilment as a human being.
    The goal is not merely for better wages or living conditions but for a radical change in the whole structure of the society he/she lives in and much more.
    One of the greatest political myths in this country is that courts are alert to protect the rights of individuals against the power of the state.
    So much so if they demonstrate or protest in ways that cause difficulty they will find that the court or judges who see themselves as occupying a key position in enforcing the law siding with the police/army which is the enforcement arm of the state.
    But in a rare instance where there is a conflict between the a corrupt state and the judiciary where the former is hellbound to follow a policy which conflicts with the constitutional principles laid down, the judiciary has no option other than to confront the state on behalf of the people at large.Ultimately it is the people who have to bear the consequences of that confrontation.

    I too strongly support and endorse the comments urging the people of Sri lanka to rise up with unity to defeat the mad action by the stupid executive. Every one knows his level of education. What a shame on southerners who always on the forfront in the intelectuality in the Country.

    If I read the thinking behind the feature comment in the Sunday Island today right, it is curtains for the CJ. It is no secret the newspaper’s main journalists are in cahoots with the regime. The Big Boss himself sang praises naming 3 of the journos. A senior Govt Minister, whose views are in the same trajectory as the Rajapakse family, is also an important component in the ownership of the newspaper.

    More than average knowledge of jurisprudence is not sufficient in today’s Sri Lanka where the office of CJ is also part of the Executive – hang what Montesque and Jennings had in mind.

    Let us save the Judiciary by Jettisoning this CJ!. Let’s start afresh. She is tainted and all the Rajapakse angst in the world can not take that away. Tainted, tainted tainted! If truth must prevail, then the truth is also bitter. She can’t all of a sudden be good chief justice because she is taking on the regime. She has to go.
