    Off the Wall,
    You left out G.L.Peris the only foreign minister without a backbone.
    He extolled MR internationally, even in the UN & Commonwealth.
    Now he appears to have quietly faded into oblivion.

    Must be Tissa Attnayake of MP need fair play by Equality before the law Sri Lankan Judiciary.

    People having different political an opinion is which democratic principle that accepted by West. Here is no fair play by that after 2015 January 9th.

    The Couse and norms of democracy in detour pattern by MS CBK and UNP Ranil.W…holy alliances.

    Respect first democracy Rights, no need to be lumpenisation of Democracy, that undermine Privileges of Member of Parliaments.
    MP is legal respretantive of People, which holding sovereign of Rights of People. No political revenges against Peoples mandates by any ruling class in power by ongoing minority democracy in Parliament.

    Democracy mean not only voting ,but right to exist without fear and by not bullying other having right holding an opposites views .

    That is NOT part of ‘Good Governances and Rule of Law’ of Island promised public 2015 January 8th By MS CBK and UNP Ranil.W…

      Sirisena Yatawara – Forging signature of other people is not a Democratic right but it is a Criminal Offence! Therefore the offender needs to be arrested and charged!

    Attanayake wouldn’t have resorted to such actions without knowing the consequences, if it fired back. Let the judiciary decide what holds for him for his own doings.

    I observed he was doing things arbitrarily with little concern for righteousness.

      No we could not see it at the time he was with Ranil.

      It was the misguide made him that down. All the cronies eating Kiribath together, paved the wrong way Aththanayake to slip easily. Any secretary should havebeen well aware of the kind of illlegal issues – that have heavy conseequances to bear in case that would go wrong, but bugger was caught. I personally woudl ahve been happier, this kind of thing could fall on the head of DAYASIRI because his mouth is akin to mudukku toilet … and almost destroyed the UNP at the time he betrayed the party
