‘Not Be Misled By False Propaganda Of State Media’ – Lawyers Collective

By Colombo Telegraph

The Lawyers Collective calls upon the public not to be misled by the shameless, malicious and false propaganda of the State Media on the Impeachment of Chief Justice.

“There are constant false and insulting contents in the Lake House newspapers and broadcasts over SLBC, ITN and Rupavahini Corporation, all of which are being used as propaganda units of the Government. The Chief Justice, the Judiciary and the lawyers who have fearlessly come forward to protect the independence of the Judiciary have often been targeted by these vicious attacks.” says the Lawyers Collective.

“The contents of these publications and broadcasts are defamatory and contemptuous and obviously intended to mislead the public. This is a calculated move to intimidate the Chief Justice, the Judiciary and the lawyers who have declined to bow down to pressure. We assure the public that there is no division among all independent  lawyers  on the Impeachment , though the  state propaganda machinery  makes all efforts to damage  the solidarity and unity among the lawyers.” it further says.

    Mahinda Rajapakse must be IMPEACHED for his actions. He must be held accountable and his impunity and immunity challenge over the impeachment of the CJ orchestrated by him and his brothers. Certainly Chamal Rajapakse must be held accountable for the Kangaroo Court.
    The lawyers should do a study of the PSC Kangaroo Court proceedings and the report, show that it is mischievous and in contempt of natural justice and due process and lay the ground work for the IMPEACHMENT OF MAHINDA RAJAPAKSE for bringing disrepute to the Judiciary and legislature and the sovereign people of Sri Lanka.

    Three Cheers For the (real) lawyers. Until now , only Fredrica , stood up to the 568 RRRRRW WWWW family rule. No body would dare voice am opinion as they were scared of the white vans and the obvious, Unrefined GOON who controls them. But now people are talking. So can we ask you something.
    IF YOU WIN THIS BATTLE( you have not asked for public support if you do , we will be there) and you have to be sure ,that the other RW and pissa A are of no use to us or you, even Harsha who has a brain wanted the CJ to resign ,because the husband carried out an order from GOD unethically. Now has he ever or has in this century , any one else ever asked the husband to resign because the wife made a donkey of her self?? Is he responsible for what his wife does? What a machoist, PIG headed male Chovanist !!! Had he said this in anger he must apologies for his mistake to all women.
    Now my question is if you lawyers keep the judiciary intact and become stronger than you have ever been, during JRJ s RPs and Chandrikas time then Sarath Silva and the thousands of other things including Fonseka and 18th amendment will not happen in the future. HOPEFULLY? Can you then start suing the state media left right and centre every time the Hadda turns,? That is the only way these fellows will stop this nonsense even in the future. Other wise the next fellow will start. As you can see the future president looks like it is going to be another excuse?

      Lasantha, the brutally silenced strong voice against injustice and denial of freedom, is no more but it is seen he left after setting an example of not submitting ones freedom to intimidation and violence and consequently there are now hundreds of ‘Voices for Justice and Freedom’ which seems to be on the increase day by day. Let there be thousands and thousands of such voices calling the people in hundreds of thousands to rise in the defence of Justice and Freedom to usher in a truly Just and Free order in Sri Lanka.

      moda Simiyong,

      If I could correct you on Dr.Harsha De Silva….He actually gave a list of 20 who were involved on the TFC stock sale and that video clip was shown in Daily Mirror.

      But President Rajapakse said that he shaped and silenced the public by firing only Mr.Kariyawasam and I and others don’t know why.

      Moreover only later that all including Dr. Harsha realised that this was a scandal where the top Govt. VIP’s were involverd ….and the truth will come out once the investigations are complete.

      I think there is also a link between the ongoing TFC stock sale and the CJ impeachment and you will here them in coming weeks.

      Of couse Dr. Harsha is a much qualified economic analyst than most of the Govt. Ministers, chairmans and Directors.

    Ordinary people who do not have a voice in this country greatly appreciate your immense courage against the tyranny. During a crisis time the character of great people will emerge. It is not the politicians but brave people like you can change the society. If we do not succeed today, we will end up in a great catastrophe. While saluting you in this endeavour please remember there are people who are willing to stand for justice together with you.
