    Lawyers are officers of court. They assist court in the administration of justice. They should not be harassed in any manner.

    Gentleman in Black Coats are Professionals that helps litigants to gain Natural Justice. Law Courts and around are the Domain for the Legal profession. The Litigants have to find alternatives without invading the rights of the Lawyers. When Ex President JR was called to give evidence, he followed the normal path of a litigant. He never threw his position at others` face to gain extra advantages. Gotta, the quick upstart and covers himself of `other`s` glory has no right to invade our area.

    The Black Coats as you say were fully aware of the country situation then and even NOW

    [Lawyers are officers of court. They assist court in the administration of justice. They should not be harassed in any manner.]

    I do not think anyone was harassed. But need to understand that Gotabaya saved Sri Lankans from blowing into pieces. We need to respect it. That is simple.

    UNP idiots and their media repeatedly claimed that these MIGs were many years old and not worth to buy. These UNP fools and $ funded mediamen though the war would drag on many years.

    Finally the war ended withing designed timeframe and the MIGs were used extensively as planned.

    If we spent huge sum of money to buy brandnew planes now the same idiots will sure make a big issue to blame the Government.

    [Sarath Fonseka has been officially Noticed and Warned that he should not speak of any Political Subject or indulge in Political behavior and/or in consultation with any Political Movement. If violated he is open for Court Martial Inquiry. ]

    Any fool should know personnel of Armed forces , Staff grade officers of Govt. Services are bound by the law, they can not engaged in political activities. If wanted they should resign. It is a simple fact.

    PolBanda,

    Maybe, Gota deserves credit for whatever he has done. I wouldn`t be surprised if some people make a statue of him and offer it flowers and incense (handun kuru), as they did to R. Premadasa. He achieved something and let him have credit for that.

    But on this day, his security saw to it that all the security vehicles were taken into court premises and not permitted lawyers to take their vehicles there, where they usually parked their cars. The lawyers were asked to park their vehicles far away and walk a long distance up to court premises. Unlike in the courts premises, there was no guarantee of the safety of their vehicles.

    I cannot in any manner condone this kind of nonsense.
