One commentator pointed out that Medicine and Engineering are now gone English as if blood and cement have a language. Unlike medicine and engineering, the law is social engineering and social medicine. This is why Hakeem got an unusual number of law applicants admitted to that one particular year. This is also the reason why Ali Sabri wanted 150 Tamil speaking lawyers in police stations.

Out of the 14  Council of Legal education members, 7 are Ali Sabri’s nominees. This is very unsatisfactory on the face of it. Lawyer Aruna Laksiri Unawatuna in a Lankaweb essay points out that one cannot go to courts about CLE decisions because, CLE is top judges and supporting lawyers, all are black whites.

Note: Supreme Court judges are still not willing or not skilled to write their judgements in Sinhala. They have a mental blockade, a Eurocentric fever. So, they want their pupils to learn English. They ignored the 1956 Official Language Act for over 60 years. That is two generations of unfair privileged status! The gazette to go back to English by the council of legal education (CLE) had to wait until a non-Sinhala minister of justice lands as a national list MP. They better be ready with valid reasons to justify their stealth decision when the country gets this bad news.

Previous three essays, this essay and one more to come were written as responses to past attempts made by black-white souls to promote English as panacea for politician-generated problems in Ceylon (Sinhale)/Sri Lanka. The expectation is that CLE members and other Eurocentric NGO agents etc. would get an idea by reading these, what the other side think.
