    Where criticism ends begins dignity.

    What is a man who does not defend his son?

    Empty vessels make a lot of noise hiding behind masks.

    In law an acquittal is not necessarily permanent, a case is closed only until its opened again. Legal justice is temporary. Natural justice is permanent and prevails over all ill and evil.

      This Fake LOWYER will Practice the Jungle Law as always he did. Does the JUNGLE LAW STIL EXCISTS UNDER YAHAPALANA??? Would they allow this man to bring the new GG Srilankan Law into disrepute .??
      He made a mockery of the justice system lock stock and Barrel to a joke law of SL.

      The justice system danced to his UNLAWFUL LAW ,CHARGED THE INNOCENT AND PUT THEM IN PRISON OR MURDERED BY HIRED HELP WHILE THE ACCUSEDS WERE GIVEN PROMOTIONS AND 5* Treatment and exonerated during his rule.
      How a so called BOGEY LAWYER WAS CALLED TO THE CHAMBERS AGAIN AS A LAWYER to defend his crooked son let alone any other cases.
      His law degree should be reexamined and punished for making a mockery of the True and honest Lawyers who do their job according to the text book and AND took their oaths as lawyers.
      One is guilty until proven innocent. According to MONKEY LAW one iS INNOCENT even after being called to present their case at the court of law. They need to be cleared FIRST at the court to be called INNOCENT.
      A country of Zombie Monkeys always follow the jungle law. Remember the Zombies??

    If you don’t brought up your children in proper way a father should and consequently one of your sons ended up in the wrong side of law, what can you do? Look for the coat which you wore as an advocate in your thirties which hardly cover your torso now, and defend him- really, this is what MR wants the gullible folks to believe that he does? Is it staging an attention seeking drama or desperation to rescue his son?. Produced a fake lawyer, and a fake navy officer with a PhD, but they are still like father- the latter has had allegedly no hesitation to murder someone purely on jealousy. The guy is deserved to be rotten in the prison?. Hmm..all this befell because of taking the words of a fake astrologer?.

    Mahinda, I thought you would have destroyed your black cloak too when you destroyed the judiciary and the courts and law and order single handed. As you were the law and there was no need for black cloak, or did you borrow it from your son Namal , as it was no use to him?

    I wish someone could turn this into a proper Movie worthy of Godfather standard with star class performances, simply called ‘The President’s coterie’, depicting the many twists, turns and flips MR makes in his political life. The unlimited family patronage, the role of ‘YES’ men, thugs, hooligans to carry out his bidding, the role of ethanol importers to finance campaign support, hard drug distributors who survive getting shot in the head to become Ministers, the getting rid of journalists. There is so much of material that could be used, many ridiculous happenings in and out of his Presidency. Even his appearance as a lawyer in support of his son’s case. All combined, it would definitely turn out to be a box office hit.

      On the contrary if you sing and strum a guitar out of tune also you could make louder noise, particularly if you are part of the noisy Sinhala/Buddhist minority.

    It is a surprise MaRa went to courts with lawyers attire. It is also strange that the Kurunegala MP who has deliberately chosen Vihares & Temples for his propaganda for a come back as a leader and was keeping a low profile in parliament is talking about Hangar recordings under his 10 year regime.

    Instead of taking care of his constituents and the country as an MP,
    he is mainly taking care of his family members.

    Mr Viraj Hewage . Bob Marley was only a singer. Not a prophet or a philosopher. Don`t take his words seriously!
    And Mr.Saman, do you mean that he ( the Discarded Mahaarajah) had been making an `indecent` living all these years?

    He is testing if the judiciary is in the way he wanted with Mohan Peris at the top.

    He would not have imagned that he has to come out to defend his son.

    By wearing lawyer’s cloak, MR gains access to the inner chambers of
    the courts, where the lawyers sit and the ploy may be to threaten the judges & cross examiners by sending daggers across at them from close range as a last resort as all his cases are weak to defend. This new strategy may have been suggested by his lawyers as there are plenty
    of cases related to the family, pending to be examined.
