    With allegations that some top army officers are supplying banned items to LTTe and information and providing accomodation for money;

    With allegations that some top army officers are behind kidnapings for ransom;

    With an IGP who has gone on record that he cannot control the situation because top army officers are behind organised crime;

    With a commissioner of prison who says that underworld gangs and inmates, who are in collusion with army officers, threaten his life;

    With allegations that army officers are higly corrupt and incompetent;

    With a defence secretary who is a law unto himself;

    The move to give police powers to the military would drive the last nail on the coffin of the democracy and law and order not to mention the civil liberties.

    Yet another step towards the estalishing of a military/police state for the benefit of an undemocratic leader who has come to power through the back door.

    Though the above are my views with love for my fellow countrymen, some people would say that Slankans do not deserve democracy and civil liberties as they are a buch of monkeys who had jumped out of trees only yesterday.

    Absolute impunity for army and police criminals.

    [`The new move requires the military to follow legal proceedings, which will not harm the public security,` he explained. ]

    This govt and the president have been saying that there were investigations on killing, kidnapping and rapes but none happened so far.

    Scotland yard, Australian Forensic Analysts, International Human rights Experts and so on are just for international consumption. They will go on, kidnapping, killing and torturing civilians and it will be too late for IC to find out the horrors as in Darfur, Sudan.

    SL police and army enjoy full impunity for any criminal activity. Even SFLP senior stalwart Mangala Samaraweera - Former Foreign Minister -admitted the kidnapping and extra-judicial killing. He was sacked for telling the truth.

    [God has given up on SL long time ago]

    SL is god forsaken. It is a country which has been cursed by its politicians. We are proud, high caste, educated, respectable and beetle-eating beggers.
