 The people are looking forward to see if justice is met by the country in an era when the Judiciary has been given independence and freedom, said Western Provincial Councillor Nishantha Sri Warnasinghe.

“If justice is not met by the people, it is a matter to be worried,” Warnasinghe said.

He made these observations on Tuesday at a press conference at the National Library auditorium organised by the National Intellectual Council on the stay order against the film Usaviya Nihandai (Silence by the Court). He said although the matter of stay order against Prasanna Vithanage’s film ‘Usaviya Nihandai’ left aside, thee is a delay in justice against corruption and frauds committed in the past. “If nobody intervenes, the Judiciary has a responsibility to meet justice without delay,” Warnasinghe said. “There was an allegation against a judge for keping a baby elephant without permission. Justice is not met by him. Twenty six human body parts which were at the Colombo National Hospital were seized from a private medical college in Malambe. But the Vice Chancellor was not arrested,” he said.

He questioned as to if justice was not implemented against them. He said there should be discussions on these matters and should be brought before cinematic camera. “Prasanna Vithanage became a pioneer in making a change,” said Warnasinghe. “We have to stand with Vithanage at this moment, he said. Parliamentary Reforms and Mass Media Deputy Minister Karunatatne Paranavithana, Attorney-at-Law Shiral Lakthilake and CaFFE Executive Director Keerthi Thennakoon also participated.
