    Avant Garde should join up with all the other wrongfully accused in Lanka and fight for Justice !

    An Amendment should be passed to the old Constitution (I agree with Charles that a new Constitution is not necessary) that People’s’ Courts be made available to the masses for honesty and justice in the legal system.

    Stop harassing local heroes !!

    Good luck to Avant-Garde. Will any judge have the courage to go against this government? The gestapo police will go after any one that will go against it.

    All the right thinking Judges and others in the legal profession must unite to save Lanka’s Justice System !
