    He knows too many secrets for anyone to take any action against him. The only way to get rid of him effectively and permanently would be a bullet between his eyes. Just my 0.02 in any currency of your choice.

    How can parliment enact law and order when one of the biggest underworld criminals remains to be a minister despite gross blunders/lawless acts?

    If the parliment can not take action against this thug what right have they got to arrest any other criminal?

    What moral right has the government to ask its citizens to adhear to law and order?

    This man has shamefully remained a minister due to inept govt. despite arecord of lawless activities. At this rate even if he kills someone in front of the whole country he will yet remain a minister!

    or is the whole of govt. consist of these lowest elements in the social strata and hence they will protect all criminals?

    Politicos will do the same in future but in more organized manner so that nobody can trap them.Setting fire to press nation robing jewelry shops in broad day light are few examples in the past.

    I read many critics they all are the same type.Beating with all mighty to sheep`s skin will not bring any good results.Categorically there are two main groups in this forum.

    1.UNP supporters try to make hay while sun shine.

    2.SLFP supporters demand expel the minister to restore the good name and power.

    Is this the solution for this problem?In strict sense Mervin is better than most of us because now we can see him and can take precautions to avoid him.

    Mrs Kumaranathunga managed to get ?SB? under control by sending him to prison. Likewise this ?Mervin the thug? with his yobs must be sent to prison.

    Although it is Prime Ministers responsibility to discipline his Ministers I don?t think it will ever happen. Time has come for the President Rajapaksha to take an initiative and sack this monster. If not people will take the law in to their own hands. Who knows Bullet of ?T five six? might cross his head.

    DR(Distinguished Rowdy) Mervin

    Isn`t there anybody who can stop this `Pin Gona`

    He is not a representing people. People won`t give him a single vote.

    There are educated and distinguished people in the parliament who came under national list. But this is a `Pin Gona`. send him to a butchery

    [Mrs Kumaranathunga managed to get ?SB? under control by sending him to prison. Likewise this ?Mervin the thug? with his yobs must be sent to prison.]

    CBK moved against SB only after he crossed over and started attacking her. What chances are there of Mervyn doing that? Even if he crosses over will any Party accept him? SB and Mervyn are two different kettles of fish. If ever Mervyn does what SB did, that will be his last hurrah.

    Do I know you?

    Mervyn Silva should be suspended of his Ministry with immediate effect.

    He should be proven guilty by a court of law, so that it will be on record. If SB can lose his right for contempt of court, this guy should lose his civic rights.

    While the UNP/CWC/JVP/JHU/CP and some SLFP members in their individual capacity have condemned the conduct of Merveyn the SLFP has failed to make an official statement.Its the Presidents responsibility to take meaningful action against his minister.The fact that the President was on the same platform when Merveyn made the obscene speech and that no action has been take as yet does not reflect well on the President or the Government.The least that the people of the country expect is that the rule of law be upheld.When Karu was in the opposition he clamored for good governance and Prof G.L. wrote volumes in many of his publications about the rule of law and ethics.I wonder what these gentleman will have to say about the conduct of their colleague?

    [he should be proven guilty by a court of law, so that it will be on record.]

    For what propose? Do you think he is going to change his life style? No he will be a thug for ever. So the best thing is to plant a bullet in his head and finish off for ever.
