Sri Lanka has lost it's system of Justice. The All-Sinhala panel of jurists declared the killers "Not Guilty". The Jurists must certainly have been paid enormous sums of money to give this verdict. Looks like the Judges holding offices too are not clean. The wife of Raviraj may have spent quite a packet in lodging this appeal and the Verdict given by the Appeals Court does not augur well for Sri Lanka and its people. We are also quite certain that the same verdict will be given in Lasantha Wickremetunge's case as well. Thajudeen and Ekneligoda Murderers too will go scot free. This is the Justice system in Sri Lanka. Is it Justice or JUST - ICE
Name and shame might stop this dastardly criminal act of getting at people and making them mental cripples just to be rich and indulge in an opulent life style .People I have met point at mansions of the drug barons but shsh the silence grows amidst fears of what happened to others who dared .Are these few the only culprits or are there many behind the scene ? ..for the victims are many .
After a very long time Gamini Weda Singhe has come out from the den to proclaim piece, like the northern rebels, whoever visited them, they claimed that they were yearning for Piece. He will show the ginger and take away the Little amount of Peanuts remaining. as left over. Already, all matters related to the investigation were termed by SL Airline management as personal and should not be investigated.
He was the first to jump from UNP to Mahinda Rajapakse, whenMR came to power. Then he was the first few Ministers to leave Mahinda Ranajapakse and jump to UNP. Thanks to former president JR Jayawardena he came to politics from the back door. While in MR's clan just before the elections he commented that UNP will never defeat MR. That was the election meeting UNP supporters were blamed to have assaulted Mahind R's supporters. Could you trust any of these politicians.
What a DASTARDLY act by a mother and brother. The only crime committed by that young girl was that she was in love. Despite the danger to herself, Zenat Rafique must have loved her family very much indeed to hope for reconciliation; yet that barbaric religion which is really a cult sought to exact revenge because their "HONOUR" was was injured.
I hope these two murderers get their just reward when they meet their maker. These ignorant morons should come to know that Almighty God is a JUST God but he is also an EVER FORGIVING GOD to those who truly repent
As stated by Sylvia HAIK in her comment on Tue, 01/17/2017 - 20:28, What a waste of 3 lives by illiterate morons
The headline screams about an MOU for restoration work ,an agreement between Cola and the CEA ..but reading on we find it is a monitoring plant to check on water pollution ..already compensation has been paid to the CEA ..and so what now we have to monitor the water for them to continue with their industries located near the Kelani ganga ..How generous is that ?..if such industries pollute the water it hurt the people who live near the river and use it for their daily needs of a swim or bathing ..and then if there is pollution then compensation to the CEA to ..explain please what happens at the CEA level when they realize that pollution happened ..how they would protect those who are living by the river and not only those who get water at the tap ..
Why is the Vice Chancellor of this University so damn ineffective that he/she cannot stop this barbaric behavior AT ONCE.
The VC should be removed IMMEDIATELY or submit himself to ragging himself.
If not he is not worthy of his office.
Knowing MR so well, he will bandy this about as if he is of some importance. His only weapon is his capacity of destruction of a dear party and he does not deserve this platform. By all accounts he should be in jail.
The world supper power is the USA, so don't Sri Lanka offer Trincomalee Port to the USA, she had her interests on it for many years. Do not antagonize the USA. SL took over Iranawila as well, so Give the port to the USA. Why Sri Lanka is angry with the USA. It's too bad.
To obtain GSP + should Sri Lanka change the constitution so everyone living in Sri Lanka receives fundamental human rights, which is not so today. Sri Lanka has its own apartheid policy today against uländska citizens (spouse). The same thing happened during the 60s in South Africa, through the sanctions and bojkot of South African goods was finally correct these injustices There are certainly not many people are aware of these injustices, but will not Sri Lanka to enable all legal residents in Sri Lanka same rättiheter as Sinhalese citizens so will the outside world to know it. Then there will be no GSP + but might instead sanctions and boycott of Sinhalese goods.
