Carlton Sports Network (CSN), identifies itself as a Sri Lankan sports, lifestyles and business television channel. CSN launched in 2011 and is funded by the Rajapaksa family, with former President Mahinda Rajapaksa’s second son, Yoshitha listed as the owner of the channel.

        Are the cases against the Jarapassa family to go on till they and we are dead? Why is the court system so corrupt and dragging out these cases? Because Minister of Justice is Wijedasa who is in Gota’s pocket?! Or because Ranil and Sira are protecting them?

        Why is Yoshita out on bail when Wimal Weerawansa’s brother is not?

        One law for the Jarapassas and corrupt politicians who have Ranil’s Parliamentary Priviliges, and another for the common people?!

      Big deal!

      Why not prosecute properly, give a fair trial, without Gon Gamarala jabbering at the independent commissions, convict and hang him for murder, if guilty, along with his uncle Gotabel.

      If not guilty, let the guy move on to his next project in life, including his uncle Gotabel. They need to have a life too, either dead like their victims, if guilty, or alive, if they are not guilty.

      Welcome to justice in the Land of Native Veddah Aethho occupied by the Paras, currently headed by Gon Gamarala.

    Before 2020 all the **sipaksas should be in jail. The war criminals including sarath and the dogs so called sirilankan forces should be punished.

    99.9% of respondents seem to enjoy taking someone’s right for free speech and an audience’s right for information. They may oppose the views or the owners of CSN. But by endorsing such cowardly acts, they endanger their own right for free speech & information.

    Having said that this is just a side show together with other noises such as pseudo conflict between the President & PM to cover up the biggest robbery in the country and the robbers involved, deteriorating security situation especially in the North & East, selling of country to India through ETCA and the race based division of the country through a new constitution.

      What if I told you he’s your boogeyman?
      What if I told you he’s the darkness in your dreams?
      What if I told you he’s the thing behind the scene?
      What if I told you he’s the secret in your heart?
      What if I told you he’s the fire that lights the spark?

      As you looked under your bed.Come along, and take his hand,
      Because he rajapassa’s your boogeyman.

    This is bad. I am no Rajapaksa supporter, but even they should have the right to put out their propaganda. If the propagate lies, well, are there not umpteen other channels to correct them? Is this the freedom of expression promised us?
