The 'Gampola Perahera' Case, Riots and Martial Law

BY DR. WICKREMA WEERASOORIA
(Dr. Weerasuriya is the son of Mr. N. E. Weerasuriya Q.C. who was a teacher at Dharmaraja during the Bilimoria period, before he joined the Legal Profession. Dr. Wickreme too became a brilliant lawyer having obtained a First Class pass form the University of Ceylon Peradeniya in 1963.  )
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

the Gampola Perahera Case, which occurred nearly 100 years ago is of great historical significance. Firstly, the Riots and Martial Law of 1915 can be traced to this case. Secondly, the facts of the case show the commitment of our Buddhist people to their religious festivals and ceremonies. Thirdly, and very importantly, it shows how the Supreme Court 'toyed' with the historic Kandyan Convention of 1815 – like a cat playing with a mouse it had caught! Fourthly, how the then Governor Sir Robert Chalmers had to be recalled prematurely and a new Governor (Sir John Anderson) appointed.

here were no crowd catches from the thousands at Galle Face green on Sunday night. No wild cheers for a well-struck ball until it was absolutely clear it would cross the rope. As Kumar Sangakkara and Thisara Perera hit the boundaries that lurched Sri Lanka towards an 18-year dream, there was some jubilation, but the masses held something back. They had been burnt too many times. Sri Lanka had played too well in too many tournaments, looked like winners in too many finals, and had still failed to bag the prize.

Antonians march on to defeat Rajans

What started off as a fairly even battle, turned out to be a bit of a rout as a spirited Antonian outfit turned on the heat in the second half to run out emphatic winners by 36 points (1 goal, 4 tries, 3 penalties) to 16 (1 goal, 3 penalties), at Bogambara, yesterday.
