PLAYING MUSICAL CHAIRS WITH THE JUDICIARY
Posted on February 5th, 2015

By  Gomin Dayasri

Office of the Chief Justice is a pew of reverence and dignity and not a site for a game of musical chairs where three occupants held the hot seat within a space of three judicial days. This zany entry will find a place in a book of records or form a smart question a quizmaster will pose by asking to name from which weird judiciary such a threesome originates.

Judiciary should not be reduced to a vaporized form of laughing gas. All three learned Chief Justices, sadly, might earn a place in history more for this bizarre event than for the many smart judgments pronounced in court.

Ordinarily Mother Lanka would have been mocked for tainting the judiciary if this happened before 8/01 in the international media. At the time of writing it remains an unreported non – event for media people covering events around the world. Such is the news of the free media. Don’t blame the local media – they had slotted the trio as the good bad and the ugly and were consistent however hysterical they sounded. It was better than keeping mum as did those great pretenders of fair justice of international fame.

Normally the winner at musical chairs is the last occupier but no longer is it a post that will guarantee a pension as a holder fallen from grace is treated with ridicule in the legislature and dispatched to the dustbin.  Once a decorated position of eminence treated with honor and respect; so it was in the past tense: not so in the present tense. Part of the problem lay with the holders of such office – the other part lies with those who appoint them to such office. Hopefully- future tense does not make it worse in trying to right wrongs. Two wrongs never make a right. Fortunately no foul deeds are attributed to the new appointee. History has proved life in the scorching seat is getting warmer.

Chief Justices and Justices of the past were men who left office, led exemplary lives in retirement, living on their hard earned pensions and private means away from the glare of publicity in times there were no opulent arbitrations around to make a quick easy buck. Arbitrations have been devalued due to the conduct of a few retired judges.

When great judges left office and made a rare appearance in public, well – wishers gathered around and pampered them as when we meet a greatly respected teachers of our schooldays.  On the bench they were upright men who did not act as being above the law and decided cases on its merits. That is the measuring yardstick of genuine and sincere grandeur. Some errant judges-like delinquent retired policemen – fear to make public appearances dreading of being slighted and a few indeed are spurned on appearance. Accept it-they did not play fair-if treated thus in later life.

We had men like M.C.Sansoni, H.N.G.Fernando, Victor Tennekoone, Neville Samarakoone; some were public servants who rose from the ranks, others came from the cream of the private bar. They were fearless and feared: did not lose the human touch of imbibing extra drink at a party among friends or laying flutter on a horse at Ascot or playing pool at the Orient club with the regular mates or talking out of turn but expressing views that were candid and blunt. Such men with blood bones and marrow with tolerable human infirmities are preferable to those that pass off preaching from pedestals sounding saintly but trying to make a name by punishing politicians when out of office and wooing them to the hilt when in office.

We had former Chief Justices who became Governors and Presidential Advisors- all political offices for fee and reward. We had former Chief Justices who became spokesperson for politicians. We had Chief Justices who changed their political coloration when in office and out of office, varied in hours of floodlight and in times of daylight. Don’t blame politicians alone if justices opt to play part time politics.

Politics is a legitimate entitlement when out of office but good men like former Chief Justices H.H Basnayake or G.P.S. de Silva would not engage in such unholy practices but would be seen in temple in quiet contemplation or in conversations of wisdom without fanfare or publicity as they did when in and out of office.

An honorable mention need be made of controversial Chief Justice Sarath. N. Silva –while in the Attorney General department he was the only known counsel who opted not to accept a legitimate fee for work done for state corporates except his basic salary for work performed and his financial propriety was exemplary on the Bench.

However reasonable it might be for a judge to be like any other citizen on retirement: a retired judge has a higher calling, as it could otherwise make their decisions whilst in office look or sound suspect or weighted. Judges have to pay a price which lawyers and laymen do not sufficiently appreciate.

Chief Justices like Ministers have to take their due share of blame for accepting high office and not living up to standards expected of them. Politicians make offers of judicial office for their advantage; a prudent learned man must know not to accept it, if unsuited or if offered for extraneous considerations. Don’t cry foul when the dice is loaded against after accepting such office and moving to an unaccustomed strange world that gives many a comfort of a temporary duration. It does hurt when it is suddenly terminated and has to shift back to seek solace in the old rocking chair back home, which is no longer a comfort corner.

Shirani Bandaranayake had her moment of glory.  Valediction ceremony was a send off that none should grudge – for she was unceremoniously dumped – it was probably more a spin off for her support teams to raise a last hurrah. Though some of her supporters called for her restoration as the permanent Chief Justice, which was her lawful place if her dismissal was indeed void, as was presented, she harmed her image by resigning swiftly to make it a day/night event in allowing her to present herself as Chief Justice for twenty four hours and then have her dispatched home in style in an official vehicle.

That gives rise to the theory of an arranged match with the government that does not amount to exoneration but more a symbolic short – term gesture of goodwill for whose benefit? For her or for the Bar Association! To add insult to injury a fresh appointment was made to the post of Chief Justice instantly to make it look more a friendly fixture-to hell with it should have been her proper response if such was a voodoo exercise. To her credit, out of office carrying many grievances, she still did not play politics, as did another former holder of such office.

My sympathies are more with other judges who are invited to adorn the ceremonial court at the whim and fancy of the changing political scenario. Naturally men/women who judge have their own convictions of the right and wrong in watching the parade of the coming and going of Chief Justices. Do they have an opportunity or have the will to exhibit their pleasure or displeasure to the political authority for the embarrassment caused to them for every Chief Justice is another brother or sister judge with whom they had much friendly contact in sitting together on the bench and is overnight deemed fit or unfit by the legislators according to their fancy.

As for my colleagues the lawyers, encounter no such issue being independent entities. But that independence disappears when shown a wig, gown, sash and a judicial title – they will bend bow and go on parade shoving others to overtake. There are still a few brave independent men and women lawyers sufficiently bold to stand aloof from the ongoing cavalcade.

 If Shirani Bandaranayake’s removal procedure was bad Mohan Pieris’s dismissal methodology is doubly worse. Watch out, some day he may be accorded an official farewell before another ceremonial court and tributes will be paid by a different set of lawyers and presided over by another President of a Bar Association with or without political aspirations. Possibly the motely crowd that attends the function will be the same black coats and white saris-they know where the bread is buttered- notwithstanding a change of administration the show must go on.

Opposed the appointment of Mohan Pieris to the President and the Defense Secretary on the ground of his proximity to political authority and supported the removal of Shirani Bandaranayake in public for her conduct as the Head of the Judicial Service Commission in hurting the reputation of the country and holding a sacred office while allegations of a grave nature (yet to be proved) against her husband for holding office that should never have been accepted from a political authority whilst being the Chief Justice.  Some of the allegations in the charge sheet framed against her in Parliament was concocted at the Central Bank and did not sound true especially her transactions at the NDB bank where CEO Russell de Mel testified correctly.

Let me tell you, both Shirani and Mohan have qualities to be admired and respected: they knew well of my opposition to them both: they always gave me a very fair hearing in the most courteous and respectful manner and pronounced the correct decision for or against me. What more does a lawyer need from a judge? But the need of a nation is much more. They carry worth as persons of value in a new world where arbitrations are money minting mine fields for a few retired judges that carry a queer practice of requiring fees be paid notwithstanding the case being postponed months previously merely because an entry was made in their otherwise vacant diaries! Supreme Court Judge named Dheeraratne never demeaned himself by accepting such office for a pot of gold.

On Mohan Pieris was compelled make as telling point to the then President Rajapakse – “if you ever appoint anybody on a political basis, the day you lose office such will try to please your successor-opponent beyond the call of duty.” Rather not mention his response. This is a lesson appointing authority often forget and suffers. That phrase is not an original of mine but a repetition of a comment which I learnt from K.Shanmugalingam [“K.Shan”] lawyer of great integrity made to Mrs Sirima Bandaranaike when Felix Dias Bandaranaike appointed Sharvananda a senior lawyer, as a Justice of the Supreme Court. He removed her civic rights when the administration changed and was later made the Chief Justice. K.Shan was in the team that defended her with H.L.de Silva, E.D. Wickremanayake and me.

 We are fortunate most judges are fair; most judges are honest-treat them for what they are-they will always will try to do their best if lawyers help them to act properly. It is the lawyers who spoil judges mostly with their wooing and flattery to wean them away from the course of justice. Fickle few fall to such traps set with butter and cream. It is a worse display to witness in court than watching a game of musical chairs from afar.

    Mr. Gomin Dayasri: You have very appropriately titled your article: “Playing Musical Chairs With Judiciary”. This “Musical Chair” play has been going on for several decades and it is time to STOP it totally and for ever. Hope with the new legislation to come, we will have that much sought after “Independent Justice Commission” and a “TRULY INDEPENDENT JUDICIARY” will be presented to us.

    Your statement: ” Chief Justices like Minsters have to take their due share of blame for accepting high office and not living up to the standards expected of them”. If this was the NORM and at least observed to the minimum, by all those mentioned, (Justices, Ministers & Presidents) our country would have been a much, much pleasant to live.

    Next you said: ” Let me tell you both Srirani and Mohan have qualities to be admired and respected: they knew well of my opposition to these both: they always gave me a very fair hearing……….” It could be correct as far as your are concerned as a Lawyer appearing before them.

    Sorry, both of them DID NOT give a fair hearing to the call of JUSTICE by the PUBLIC in accepting those positions offered to them, and as a result we did not see those qualities to be admired and respected in them. However, we are happy that both of them succumbed to their own follies. However, we need to move forward and hope these lessons will be learned by all concerned.

    Many thanks to Gomin for the knowledgeable article.
    So this musical chairs game is not new, extending to Sirimavo’s time.

    Gomin might know , or not, let me add some personal knowledge for the benefit of those who believe the Buddhist principles “Kamma”.

    Gomin said, QUOTE ” ……to Mrs Sirima Bandaranaike when Felix Dias Bandaranaike appointed Sharvananda a senior lawyer, as a Justice of the Supreme Court. He removed her civic rights when the administration changed and was later made the Chief Justice. K.Shan was in the team that defended her with H.L.de Silva, E.D. Wickremanayake and me…..UNQUOTE.

    Suppiah Sharvananda’s only son died very young (early 40 s) suddenly (not accident).
    Most of his family had to flee Sri Lanka to India ( his son’s family too)
    He was the CJ during drafting of 13A and was appointed 1st governor of western province under it
    He was not a corrupt man besides doing few “bad” kamma which affected whole nation
    He lived a below average life in Sydney and passed away without many friends and relatives at an age of 80s.

    It is getting weirder and weirder. Now CBK is throwing a tantrum and wants her party to herself. How petty can she be!

    Sri Lanka’s former Presidents at loggerheads over party position
    Thu, Feb 5, 2015, 09:28 am SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

    Feb 05, Colombo: Former President of Sri Lanka Chandrika Bandaranaike Kumaratunga says she would resign from her position in the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) if former President Mahinda Rajapaksa is given a position in the party that has the same status of her position.

    She made this comment at an interview with the private television channel Sirasa TV recently.

    Both Kumaratunga and Rajapaksa were appointed as patrons of the party at a party politbureau meeting after the presidential election earlier last month.

    When inquired about the future affairs of the party, the former President has said, the position of patron was created with the request of party members and there was never such a position in the history of the party.

    “When it was given to me the position was given wide powers. But I was not allowed to execute any of them. Even then I remained silent. I could have gone to Courts. But I did not do it either. However, after looking at what Mahinda Rajapaksa has done to the party and the country, I did not expect he would be given anything, let alone the position of patron. I came to know about this after it was awarded it to him. So I told Maithripala Sirisena who is the new chairman of the party that I will resign as I cannot stay in the same level as Rajapaksa.”

    Cerberus,
    “It is getting weirder and weirder. Now CBK is throwing a tantrum and wants her party to herself. How petty can she be!”

    I listened to he interview. I don’t agree with you.

    To be fair to her, what she sassed was very clear.

    1. She explained how ex president ruined her party and the country (according to her)
    2. Therefore she is disappointed and never expected him to be appointed as an “adviser”
    3. She is not prepaid to share the same level as him ( she never said she wanted to lead the party)
    4. She said she would resign from “adviser” position but will always be a party member.

  5. Christie Says:

    Namaste: Playing musical chairs with the law as I see it.
    Talking about Chandrika she is the daughter of Banda and I than her for being up front after the event. Her father did the same but did not tell much like her. In her interview she did not say about her close contact with India and the number of times she visited India. Jai Hind.

  6. Dilrook Says:

    Thank you Gomin for an excellent revelation. I call it “a game of checkers”.

    Out of all three recent Chief Justices, the current one is the most disrespectful and unprofessional. He was the beneficiary of the game of musical chairs and true to his professionalism (if any) should have opted out of this game of musical chairs. His integrity is totally lost now. The BASL – the architect of the game of musical chairs – has also stepped out of their limits and dictate terms to lawmakers, the judiciary and the president. This interference with the judiciary must be punished. Gone are the days when Chief Justices, auditor generals, solicitor generals, etc. stood firm and feared none and everybody feared them.

    Quoted: M.C.Sansoni, H.N.G.Fernando, Victor Tennekoone, Neville Samarakoone. They were great men indeed. Sadly judges of their calibre will not emerge today unless the BASL is stopped from interfering with the judiciary and the executive president is prevented from interfering.

  7. Independent Says:

    Dilrook,
    BASL became a nagging grandmother since the newly appointed BOI chairman became the president. We may see him even become the CJ depending on the power of Ranil. Se how they praise each other. Please watch,

    “https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v441kT1WxJw”
    “https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FVLsQDDidXA”

    BASL is just a Union, like Police Union. I agree with your statement. It is imperative to Yahapalanaya.

  8. Dilrook Says:

    A word on Chandrika.

    We all love to hate her for corruption and anti-national work. However, she is undoubtedly the cleverest political strategist of our time. It is important to recognise her tactics as many others will play these and hopefully the nationalists will also learn to use them as appropriate. Outright rejecting them is a sure way to fall into these tactics again.

    She locates the unseen weakpoint in her targets and exploits it. President Premadasa supporters would vow they were not controlled by the Maharajas, etc. but in reality it was so. Similarly, many would not believe the Rajapaksas greately feared the Americans but in reality USA had very strong levers to control them.

    She plotted the political end of the two most powerful presidents – Premadasa and Mahinda. Both decimated the opposition and looked politically invincible. In 1992 when she took over the SLFP, it had no hope of winning an election. Her life was in danger as JVP, PRRA and state actors were after her. Within a year she had made inroads into the most crucial provinces. Had Premadasa not died in May 1993, UNP would have suffered an even worse defeat in 1994. The key was she won over Premadasa’s puppeteers, namely, the Maharajas, LTTE-SLMC and western governments with her devolution and human rights prospectus. They ensured Premadasa caused no harm to her and allowed her space to engage in politics.

    She followed the same strategy in 2014. Having joined the Clinton foundation, etc. she had made her connections again that rules the Rajapaksas. Although on the outward the Rajapaksas showed their mistrist of USA, in reality USA was greately feared by them for reasons of residency, war crimes allegations and the US ability to institute war crimes charges against the defence secretary if they so wished as he is a US citizen. Having won USA on her side, she moved to dislodge the Rajapaksas. For her crimes, she should be in prison. But by winning over the masters of local rulers, she and her dubious activists managed to evade it.

    The success of this strategy has two parts. External sponsorship of regime change (everyone knows this) and the fact that local rulers venerating USA mostly for personal reasons. If the circumstances were different with local rulers (if they didn’t care about the personal threats USA made to them and family), her strategy would not have worked. It is this weakness she exploits over and over again.

    To address both problems, Sri Lanka must enact laws to prevent any dual citizen or a resident of another country from engaging in politics locally or holding a top government office (unless contracted as a foreigner on terms beneficial to Sri Lanka). I hope readers see the conflict of interest in both groups. There are several parliamentarians who are citizens of western nations and many more holding high office in public entities. Even a few from the Tamil diaspora have been recently appointed to very influential posts! They must renounce their foreign citizenship and residency before assuming office.

    If my memory serves right, it was Chandrika, Mangala and Dullas who started this tactic by getting the protection of foreign citizenship, returning back to Sri Lanka and engaging in active politics. Now it has worsened. It resemles the historical event of a defeated Prince Rama going to India, bringing in an army and claim throne from King Kashyapa.

    Unless such laws are enacted, Sri Lanka will be the subject of worsening manipulation by these countries. As the Sri Lankan diaspora grows in number and expertise, there will be many more MPs, ministry secretaries, central bank governors, judges, etc. who are citizens or residents of other countries. They will have to face a conflict of interest situation and most will do what is best for them to hell with Sri Lanka.

    THIS ARTICLE WILL BRING NOSTALGIC MEMORIES TO MANY OF MY VINTAGE. I REMEMBER THE NAMES OF ALL THE JUDGES AND LAWYERS MENTIONED IN THIS ARTICLE. I REMEMBER MY FATHER TELL A HILARIOUS STORY ABOUT WALDO SANSONI WHO WAS ALSO IN THE CONTINGENT WHO WENT TO THE WORLD SCOUT JAMBOREE IN WEMBLEY IN 1924. I BELIEVE HE IS A BROTHER OF JUSTICE M.C.SANSONI, AND WAS ALSO IN THE LEGAL PROFESSION.. I STAND TO BE CORRECTED. Mr. WALDO SANSONI LOST HIS PAIR OF SHOES, AND MY FATHER GAVE HIM HIS PAIR OF TENNIS SHOES, TILL HE GOT A NEW PAIR.

    IAM PROUD TO MENTION THAT I HAD CLASS-MATES HOLDING TOP POSITIONS IN THE JUDICIARY,LIKE RAMA, PRIYANTHA, AND MARK.

    MORE THAN AN HONOURABLE MENTION, I LIKE TO ADD A “”SINCERE THANK YOU”” TO JUSTICE SARATH NANDA SILVA,FOR GIVING ME LEGAL RELIEF FOR A LABOUR CASE THAT I HAD TO FACE FOR 19 YEARS. I WROTE TO HIM, WHEN I SAW HIS NAME APPEARING IN THE NEWS, AS PRESIDENT COURT OF APPEAL. HE READ OUT MY LETTER AT HIS FELICITATION CEREMONY, WHICH HAPPENED TO BE MY COURT DAY TOO, TUESDAY 8TH FEBRUARY 1994. HE SENT A SMALL NOTE TO JUSTICE TO FINISH OFF MY CASE IN THREE MONTHS. YES, IT DID, AND I GOT MY AWARD. ALL THE MEAN POSTPONEMENTS THAT MY EMPLOYER OCHESTRATED CAME TO AN END. THE CONTENTS OF MY LETTER APPEARED THE NEXT DAY IN ENGLISH AND SINHALESE. I HAVE THOSE TWO NEWS PAPERS RIGHT NOW WITH ME.

    THANK YOU JUSTICE SARATH NANDA SILVA, THANK YOU. GREETINS FROM USA.

  10. Ananda-USA Says:

    Dilrook,

    You said …

    1. Sri Lanka must enact laws to prevent any dual citizen or a resident of another country from engaging in politics locally or holding a top government office (unless contracted as a foreigner on terms beneficial to Sri Lanka).

    2. They must renounce their foreign citizenship and residency before assuming office.

    3. Appointing a Singaporean as the Central Bank governor puts national interest in jeopardy.

    I STRONGLY ENDORSE your proposals LISTED above, and the danger of appointing a foreigner as the governor of the Central Bank, with the EXCEPTION of the clause “from engaging in politics locally”.

    While holding of a top government office should be PROHIBITED to non-citizens and dual-citizens, engaging in “politics”, including voting in elections should be allowed for dual citizens, and for Sri Lanka citizens residing abroad, who satisfy a periodic residency requirement. Otherwise, the whole concept of “citizenship” becomes meaningless.

    While Sri Lanka can and should enact immigration laws to protect herself independently of what other countries do, it is useful to to consider how they have addressed similar concerns. For example,

    The proposed RESTRICTION on holding a top government office would be similar to the PROHIBITION of a non-native-born US citizen from being a candidate for the Presidency of the United States.

    The REQUIREMENT to satisfy a periodic residency condition would be similar to that required of non-citizen Permanent Residents in the United States.

  11. NAK Says:

    Dolrook, Chandrika is what Victor Ivan called her. She has no brains to pull off such a coup. The script must have been written in the devils land and she cheated all the men perfectly as women usually are capable of.
    Coming back to Shirani Bandaranayake’s dismissal.
    To my knowledge,the most relevant reason was her public accusation of death threats from the President.
    First she accused the president of trying to interfere in the judiciary when she was invited for budget discission without even attending the meeting. She made three such statements through the judicial commision.That may be the reason she was treated poorly at the elect committee and it was evident that she did so with some instigation from an interested party.
    But surprisingly every one writing ablout the issue seem to forget or avoid the issue.

  12. Susantha Wijesinghe Says:

    ANANDA !!! Fully endorse you points of view. I like to add my two cents worth.:-

    3) Appointing a SINGAPOREAN as the Central Bank Governor, is SHOCKING, VERY DISTURBING AND A LOATHSOME DECISION BY A SINHALESE PRESIDENT. Possibly, this decision was forced upon him by the LTTE PROXY TNA, or by a foreign Power, which could be Singaporean. Who in his sane disposition would appoint a FOREIGNER to a TOP Sri Lankan post. Only a meek, weak, servile personality would jeopardise the National Integrity of this beautiful country.

    We do not need to look for ways and means of how to appoint a Foreigner to a top Sri Lanka Administrative post. WE DO NOT NEED FOREIGNERS. There is plenty of TALENT in this country. We do not need foreign advice on such appointments. In this case, the President has clearly under estimated the Academic talents in Sri Lanka, thereby ridiculing the seats of learning, and the learned. This is low depravation of thoughts. The appointee has close connections to Raj Rajaratnam, which speaks a million words. There can be no this, and no that, but the fact is questionably tainted.

    ISNT THERE ANY CLAUSE IN THE CONSTITUTION, TO SAY THAT NO FOREIGNER CAN HOLD A TOP APPOINTMENT IN SRI LANKA ADMINISTRATION. ? If the answer is a categorical NO, then whoever was entrusted to finalise the Constitution and put it on print, lack large amounts of GREY MATTER. They are known as mustard brains.

    THE PRESIDENTS YAHAPALANAYA VISION IS CLOUDED WITH COFUSION, AND ERRATIC DECISION MAKING,

    WELL ! COMING EVENTS SEEM TO BE CASTING THEIR SHADOWS.

  13. LANKAPUTHRA Says:

    Gomin Dayasiri, You played the musical chairs with the very judiciary you live by; since you graduated as an attorney. I had, I have and I will have great respect for you, DO YOU KNOW WHAT YOU DID? I BET YOU DID NOT KNOW. YOU JUST JUSTIFIED AN ILEGAL REGAIME! You wanted to make fun out of Former CJ Sarath N. Silva, who openly published an article referring to the Sri Lanka constitution with the article number that present regime is ILLLEGAL. Remember your old buddy, who passed away in December 2014, SL Gunasekara? He and Sarath N. Silva, then CJ got rid of the common law crook, Chandirca Kumarnathunga? If not Sri Lankans will be still fighting Prabhrakeran and loosing valuable Sinhala youth not even partially trained for war. I ask the following questions from you and as the author I expect you reply on the comments column.
    1. Did you know that this is the first time in the history of LANKA PARLIAMENT there is Prime-minister who is not elected by the people vote or parliamentary vote? I bet you do, but better make fun out of Sarath N. Silva, by brining antiquated out date historical events related to late judges so the reader is totally out of focus of what is going on in the country. May I ask what did you gain out of it? You tickled your self.
    2. Did you know that Ranil W. suffers from DEMENSHIA? He cannot stand and speak for more than 20 minutes? He cannot move with out a BASTHAM? I got all these from e-mails floating by and clandestine web pages. I live in USA so it is the only way such info comes to me. My question to Gomin is; Do you need a mentally unstable person as the Prime Minister of Sri Lanka? Hope you will reply.
    3. When people of your caliber write articles your readers attempts to mimic. Good Example I found was on Ceylon Today: (Feb 6th 2015) This comedy Actor; MP Arundika Fernando is suggesting that MOHAN PEIRIS should resign! May be he must be thinking that Rani.W will offer him the job.
    4. Do you know that the ELECTION WAS Rigged? I bet you do but afraid to write about it. It was done by the ELECTION COMMISSIONER “Mahindar Deshapriya” How he did this is what no one wants to talk about. I will give a small clue, His brother is a web site designer and has been publishing ANTI MR FAMILY web sites since 2005. Deshapriya said at a news conference that there was a computer over load and the computer crashed. (Sri Lanka media is not up to par to question the presenter because of lack of Computer forensic knowledge) That is the clue, he stopped it modified the results and restarted it. (I will write an article and publish it on Lankaweb (Hopefully Lankaweb will not be penalized for publishing it) and give full facts.

  14. LANKAPUTHRA Says:

    Editor of the article does not want to reply to the comment writers allegations. So it looks like Rani. W wants Gomin to represent him at the court case against him? It looks like my allegations are TRUE.
