      This appointment is favorable for them.

      Birds of a feather flock together, but let s the megalomanic can fool the nation all the time. Not long is left for his power is what I feel. Premadasa was disappeared and got killed as nobody expected – but his deeds were not this much of abusive. Wait and see how this man would end up soon.

    I am begining to curse myself to be born in Sri Lanka and cannot believe my eyes.

    Sorry for my countrymen and woman and my advice is to get some skills and professional qualifications and migrate to the West.

    No hope in this land for even in the next 100 years to come.

      Do not despair.Sri Lanka needs a people who have guts to stand up for what is right peacefully and steadfastly. Unfortunately, the land is not blessed with such people yet. The Tamils demonstrated they were a gutless people in the face of the VP and other militants phenomenon and lived to reap a bitter harvest. The Sinhalese have shown themselves to be a gutless people from the dawn of independence and are reaping the harvest now. Unfortunately or fortunately, depending on how we view it, all Sri Lankans are paying the price now. Mr. Sumanthiran spoke for the whole nation in parliament , the other day. This was a harbinger that this nation may be coming together to face issues as one composite. Every dark cloud has a silver lining!

        What what do my eyes deceive me ? Praising TNA’s again I repeat TNA’s Sumanthiran ? We have not forgotten how you maligned them LOL

        I proposed Gothabaya since you have praised him for all the ‘development’ he has done maybe he can ‘develop’ the justice system too LOL

        I wonder if you are sensing a changing tide and jumping ship ?

          I will yet malign the TNA on the manner in which they have dealt with the post-war Tamil issues.It is the TNA that is moving to the national stage, as I had always wanted it to. It is now talking of problems confronting the whole nation, of which the Tamils are part. It was bad governance that seeded the Tamil problem and it is bad governance that has resulted in the CJ impeachment. Sumanthiran did right and I am proud of what he did and his performance ion parliament. I point out what I think is wrong, as readily as I would welcome what I think is right.

          I have never been in any ship and hence there is no need for me to jump. Further, I will yet praise Gotabhaya Rajapakse for the many good things he has done and is doing. Theresults are very visible. However, Gotabhaya is not responsible for planning the development projects in the north and east, although the soldiers have helped when needed.

      How ironic the nation was rescued from VP at great cost to life and limb. Only to be handed over to uneducated, uncultured maniacs of the Rajapassa clan.

      But, do not worry. Sri Lanka Spring will soon come knocking on the gates of Temple Trees. Dictator will be chased out. Just like Mubarak.

    In a way, I am very happy that Mohan Peiris is the New CJ replacing Her Ladyship Dr. Shirani Bandaranayake for reasons given below. I have been a convicted criminal and also an IRC. I have a number of other criminal cases against me and She is the one to preside on those cases. I am sure and I will be shitting in my pants when I have to appear before her as she will definitely give me death penalty for she gives her verdicts according to the constitution and to her conscience but not in favour and no sympathy at all towards human beings who have committed crimes. On the other hand, Mohan Peiris can be easily bribed and get all my previous cases too quashed saying that there are no proofs against me. This I could do easily through the Presidential Secretariat by supporting the Chinthanaya as there are two options for any Sri Lankan criminal to get all the charges removed. 1) Do any crime and join Chinthanaya 2) Join Chinthanaya and do any crime. But if you are not, then “putho” death penalty is guaranteed or extra judicial death warrant is guaranteed.

      As you adequately explained – all those who are criminals but do have close contacts with president and the family – as it is the case with BRITISH tourist was murdered but the killer was among the close friends of presidents sons – will easily be free even if they would go on with their criminal deeds.

      Even today, there exists no rule of law in the country, but when their kinds of pacts will get easily amended by their MAN ( newly appointed CJ ),nation will have to change their mind soon.

      You did not mention that your indictments could be postponed for months & years by deliberate inaction by the attorney general and minor judciary, by becoming an ardent political supporter of the ruling party.
      You also forgot to mention that you could have obtained a Presidential Pardon,if all else fails, by joining the correct political party and endearing youself to an important government politician.

    We have two CJs now.

    1. A legitimate CJ and
    2. An illegitimate CJ

    However, there is only one position of CJ . Would occupying the chair of the CJ through force lend any respect to the position or dignity to the illegitimate CJ?. Dr. Shirani Bandaranayake will be the only CJ in hearts of those who know to differentiate between what is wrong and what is right. The newly appointed CJ will always be the imposter.

    This is testing time for the legal fraternity. It is how they react that will decide the democratic evolution of the country. There are larger issues at stake here than the position of CJ. I hope the legal fraternity has guts and the commitment to principles, to continue its struggle with greater vigour in the interest of this country. It is sad that the BASL has already started wagging its tail. It was all bark, but no bite, apparently for this organisation.

    Is the Sri Lankan judiciary going to be developed on the LTTE model, where VP was the President, Commander -in-Chief of the armed forces, the Parliament, the CJ and the executioner? I am beginning to think VP has left his indelible foot print on Sri Lanka. It is VP’s way that is becoming MR’s way!

    Obviously a “YES MAN” who will unhesitatingly obey and serve the Rajapaksa’s. Next would be the ripping of the constitution, with changes made to ensure the dictatorship will continue solidly, for the future generations.
    The world has condemned this travesty of justice and sham of a democracy. The lawyers who stand up for justice and corruption, have to be supported by other professionals and the rest of the country. They know first hand how the Rajapaksa’s have deliberately plotted and removed the Chief Justice who was in their path to further enhance their positions unchallenged, and take control of this country. Shame on us for doing nothing, and accepting this travesty.

    CJ Samarakone did not bow down to the then prez JRJ. He did it because he was clean. We cannot expect such conduct from Mohan Peiris as his shady past including the exposure made by this news paper with proof about CJ Peiris representing both sides in one case is public now. I hope some one will take the issue of representing both sides in one matter to court for a ruling.

      The president has to be congratulated for his skills. He hugged Sarath Silva at a funeral and made him an ally overnight. He visited Wijedasa Rajapakse’ home soon after the shooting incident and this may have melted WR’s resolve. If CJ, Shirani Bandaranayake had accepted the president’s invitation and hospitality, she may have let the president have his way in matters connected to the Superior Courts. If She had done so, she would be the one and only CJ now. The lady is a bloody fool. She did not learn the lessons needed to be successful and secure in her sinecure, in this blessed land!

          Dr. Rajasingham Narendran knew the hell VP , your hero, had created in the north and east, before he met MR. He also was convinced that MR would end the war on his terms, after he met MR two years previously. He also was convinced that MR would deliver the Tamils from the LTTE blight and give them the chance to recover. MR has delivered on what I expected. My thanks are due to him. I hope that he will do more for the war-affected Tamils .

          MR has failed to deliver on the issue of good governance and the CJ issue is a highlight of this failure. He deserves to be condemned for this failure.

          Dear Dev, regardless of however much you try to run in circles around me you will not succeed . do not waste your time.

    Once again the cunning, street-wise MR check-mates them all. One speaks no more of morals, ethics, the Constitution, Natural justice, customs etc in governance. It is the old village truism of “henda athey nam, beda ganilla” (If the spoon/ladel is in your hand serve yourself to full measure) MR takes the entire legal fraternity single-handedly, including those senior lawyers/PCs that threatened to ignore his nominee for CJ, and, tells the coundtyr and the world if he (Mohan P) was good as A-G what’s wrong with him being CJ. Don’t even be surprised if he tells Mohan P he can continue to be Chairman/Seylon and all those other Santhosam from the Palace that came his way. Who cares for rules and regulations in the personal fiefdom?

    And so the Rajapakses ride to the next storm – so long as the focus of the yakkos is kept away from the real issues – the unbearable CoL, health, education, transport, security and what not. The majority can also be fooled the Tiger is not dead and is getting ready to pounce –
    a few grams of explosives, a gun or two introduced to the house of a Tamil MP – exaggerated by the Sinhala press and the extremists lead by the JHU will do the trick.

    If Mohan P moves and makes the entire GKCCC depositors happy settling their dues – capital, interest and all quickly – the country that is notorious for the memory span of a goldfish (2 seconds) this PR coup will go out to mitigate some degree of dis-satisfaction of a section of the public that has earned the sympathy of the entire country.
    That is probably why sibling BR is in the vanguard of that exercise.

    Mark my words countrymen.

    The Supreme/Court of Appeal Judges will shamelessly sit with this rogue Mohan Peiris ignoring their own verdict.
    They might even claim that they were misled by Judge so and so.

    There will be a que of lawyers at Mohan Peiris’ chamber wishing him well and also claiming ” I was always with you” or “I was misled by so and so. sorry sir.”

    Persons like Sarath Silva and Mohan Pieris were looked up when they were in the AGs dept. I am unable to understand how they changed or that they did not change at all but we failed to see their real colours. I am begining to accept that finally the money talks not any other bull shits like principles, policy etc.
    I can understand the behaviors of Rajapakses but not the support given persons like GL and Mohan Pieris, Asoka de silva etc.

    It was nobody else, but due to the pure inefficiency of the leader of the opposition party Mr.Ranil Wickremasinghe that lead to the humiliated discharge of Madam CJ Shirani Bandaranayake.

    My whole generation including myself are strong UNP supporters and we were party supporters for VA Sugatadasa during our young days. But we are ashamed to see Ranil’s behaviour and cannot understand his confused double game MIND SET. FOR ME HE IS LIKE A “VAVULA” Bat.

    The Jacka..s waited until CJ was wrongly procuted…..while getting his rupees 89 million pin padi(our money) with foreign tours from big boss.

    Here’s the reason to back up may case against MR.Do Little.
    ————————————————————————-
    1) RW not only, did not participate to hear the Appeals court hearing…but also restricted the other two UNP PSC members from attending it.

    Please read and listen to the following VIDEO what Mr. Wickremasinghe said during the SiriKotha UNP party membership drive.

    http://www.dailymirror.lk/news/24804-media-must-apologise-to-unp-ranil.html

    1)Ranil clearly say that finally SC said what HE said was the correct decision…..what his correct decision….
    I want to know what correct decision SC verdict to say what RW said was correct.
    What Appeals court said was that Parliament PSC CJ verdict was unconstitutional and viod……So what is Ranil saying other than Lying.

    2) Also RW says that SC CANNOT TOPPLE MR GOVERNAMENT……..I want to know who said that SC is trying to topple MR govt……It is utter lies…….Both CJ, SC, Appeals court and WE are only looking for justice for CJ with an impartial hearing and not to topple the govt.

    3)RW also say that he is treated like a FOOT BALL WHERE HE BOUNCE WHENEVER HE IS BEEN HIT.

    WE KINDLY TELL MR.RANIL THAT HE IS ALREADY A FOOTBALL WITHOUT AIR. THERE IS NO POINT HIM TO THINK WINNING ELECTIONS WHILE HE IS IN THAT SEAT…..AND MAY BE HE KNOWS IT……But with a Rs: 86 million annual pay…….he don’t mind dreaming to be ever to be the opposition leader.

    4)IF RW and the UNP PSC two members came for the Appeals Court Hearing, it would have sent a strong message to MARA not to play politics with Judiciary and with country’s constitution……

    BUT HE PURPOSLY SKIPPED IT AND ALSO FORCED THE 2 UNPer’s not to attend……following MARA’s advise.

    Then during the debate he was shedding crocodile tears telling “Speaker to Intervene”……It is the biggest joke one could hear for the whole life. Whom he try to deceive…..MR Paid Joker. Don’t he know that MR is already a dictator. while RW think of winning election in 2014…….What a Joke.

    RANNIL YOU LET US AND THE WHOLE UNP DOWN AND HUMILIATED. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.
    TO GET RUPEES 89 MILLION PAYCHECK AS SANTHOSAM FROM MARA DOING NOTHING TO THE PARTY AND TO THE COUNTRY IS MORE THAN ENOUGH FOR YOU TO STAY AS OPPOSITION LEADER FOR EVER.

    You can’t even stand for half hour when you give a speech……leave alone winning the next elections.

    Could you honestly tell that you could walk six miles a day meeting people and convincing them to vote for UNP…….or you are simply plan to enjoy foreign trips every other month with your payroll bonanza……
    If you are sick….or feel sick and tired…..please leave your post and give to a strong Stalion to do the job. We don’t want sick goats….but strong stalions to lead UNP.That’s why president treats you like a Pambaya.

    I saw only Sajith, Ravi , Dayasiri,Ranjan manayake,Mangala, Buddhika, giving away Gifts and Parcels to FLOOD VICTIMS AND NOT YOU MR. CHE..TER….

    Mr. Ranil Wickremasinghe.
    Please visit the following web. and give us your views.

    http://www.sundaytimes.lk/130106/business-times/why-are-unp-mps-silent-over-a-new-daylight-robbery-sale-of-duty-free-car-permits-26753.html

    You talk like a five year old child and act like a Clown.
    You have to change your appearance, behaviour and personality, speach, points,and producti8ve criticism…..to look loke a Man and not a q…r… Please learn from Sajith, dayasiri, Ravi, Mangala and Sumanthiran. Go for a Political speech class ….and learn. It’s not too late.

    Please Give your post to some more capable MP’s in the Party.
    I am telling for your good……if not very soon you will also get a rotten egg and tomato treatment like what MARA got in England.

    It is better to leave respectably…….than chase as a Coward and a goon.

    Choice is yours.

    Finally I tell Mr.Wickremasinghe…..Please if you have any bit of self respect left…..don’t go to President’s house to have BLACK COFFEE WITHOUT SUGAR.

    IF YOU WANT I WILL SEND YOU THE BEST COFFEE IN THE WORLD….ETHIOPIAN OR COLUMBIAN COFFEE……BUT FOR OUR ONE SAKE AND RESPECT PLEASE STAY AWAY FROM GOING TO PRESIDENT’S HOUSE TO HAVE BLACK COFFEE.

    IF YOU WANT TO MEET PRESIDENT…..MAKE IT IN THE PARLIAMENT…….BUT NOW LEAVE PARLIAMENT AC CHAMBER AND GO TO CONVINCE PEOPLE LIKE WHAT JVP IS DOING.

    PLEASE FOLLOW THE EXAMPLE OF MADAM CJ.BANDARANAYKE.

    Thank you.
