    Rajpal brother,
    Doing the laundry job is very dangerous.
    When you are found guilty the man to whom belongs the ass you have been licking so far can give you a pardon and get you off the prison sentence and fine.
    But even he can’t give the black coat back to you once it is removed.

    Sin no?

      Way to go! Rajpal needs to be held accountable
      So too must his paymasters – the Mahinda Rajapakse regime must be held accountable and impeached by the judiciary and professionals and citizens of Lanka who have been insulted by the Kangaroo Court run by the PSC on Rajapassa insturctions.
      Rajpal must be stripped of his lawyer badge and the Mahinda Rajapassa and Chamal Rajapakse must be impeached for contempt of court, lies, corruption and bringing disrepute to the judiciary, legislature and sovereign people of Lanka.

    Great job at the SC. Way to go.

    This rotter and journalistic joker must be disbarred. No one will ever feel sympathy for him except his fellow government bootlickers.

    I have never seen such filth utterered by anybody other than him, except for that foulmouth Hudson Samarasinghe. This paid journalistic joker of the Daily Noise has become a joke now with his never ending talk of the dollar diaspora but when he slanders the CJ, he must be taught a lesson.

    The SC judgement not going to matter as president has the authority to offer full pardon, even SC sentence him he’ll be out in few hours with all his rights intact.

      Iraj, perhaps you are right (I not a law expert). But more such things are done by the regime, the more egg they will have in their faces!

      Yes but if he is disbarred or in the minimum suspended as an attorney-at-law, even this rotten President cannot do anything. So kindly get your facts correct. Don;t make it sound as if this action will not achieve anything. Not only this scum but that Hudson Samaasinghe and ITN should be put on the mat. Perhaps this will be a warning. Hats off to Amaratunga.

      The president can offer parton only if convicted. Keep in Remand and the prisoners will keep reminding of his school days until he feels the sore. Keep him long enough so that he expands his horizons

    There are more boot lickers who are a disgrace to journalism. They too should get their deserts sooner or later. People should get the opposition leaders to make a policy commitment to privatize or broadbase the ownership of state media institution or bring them all under an independent authority. once they come into power.

    The Parliament may be supreme according to constitution, but because of the rot that is inside it, it does not deserve to be above even a magistrate court. The PSC comprised of 7 morons from the government side who don’t know to respect a Chief Justice and moreover a lady. Then what can a common man they are supposed to be servants of expect.

    Rajpal has been writing crap in his columns for years, making personal attacks on various citizens of this country because of personal grudges. He is a nasty and crude little man. That saying about the kottoruwa and the banana tree comes to mind I hope he gets his just desserts.

    Rajpal did you forget that you had enjoyed NGO money by eating and drinking along with Jehan Perera when you join the media visit to North and East during LTTE time and strongly criticize the Govt.and its actions with Tamil and Muslim media persons ? It proves that you would do any thing for Money and comfort even dishonestly for your pay masters.
