(Lanka-e-News, October 22, 2008, 6.30 PM) All the registrars of Colombo Magistrate Courts received a letter Monday (20) threatening that those who appear for the terrorist suspects those who represent their human rights would be killed, maimed or blinded.

The ill-famous 'Mahason Balakaya' that issued similar threats previously as well had posted these letters.

Parcels containing 50 copies each of these letters were received by all eight Registrars of Colombo Magistrate Court.

Almost all the lawyers in Colombo rose against the bomb attack at the house of renowned human rights counsel J.C. Weliamuna. Fifty civil organizations held a rally in Colombo New Town Hall recently condemning the attack.

The threatening letter reached to the registrars of Magistrate Courts several days later had no mentioning about lawyers.

The counsel of Colombo courts Manjula Pathiraja said to 'Lanka-e-News' that no lawyer of any courts in Sri Lanka would be meek to give up the respect of the law profession in such a situation.
