Very Important Information for Customers

There is some very important information for Cable TV customers in this so please read on till the end.

Like we said yesterday the case has been postponed till August 15th 2006. Please follow the below links for more information.

Cable TV providers case postponed (Daily Mirror 7th July 2006)

There's a major security concern needing attention - Counsel (The Island 6th July 2006)

We like to thank Mr. Vidarsha Dharmasena who has taken this matter to all authorities, please click to read the letter. A bit of advice to all of you who are appealing to the authorites, it is better to send them an official letter by postal services than email since the posted letter is more official than email. Since EMail is not taken as official communication at times. We hope someone can post the addresses of the following institutions.
  1. The Presidential Secretariat
  2. The Consumer Affairs Authority
  3. The Media Ministry
  4. The TRC
  5. The SLRC
Those of you who want the services restored back can request these authorities to allow LBN to restore services. Remember you as citizens of Sri Lanka have a right to appeal. If we do so then we will be backing those people who have already sent the authorities letters.

We also found an interesting comment in the CBNSat blog by "Dude" about an Organization called "Consumers International" apparently they fight for the rights of Consumers. Looks like the kind of people who are needed at the moment by the Cable TV customers.

Web Address is : http://www.consumersinternational.org/

We like to thank "Dude" for posting the comment about Consumers International. All their contact information is available on this site, if all of you are able to write to this organisation and request them for help, stating the situation in sri lanka regarding the cable tv scenario, there is a very good chance that they will help out. All CBN and LBN Customers should write to them.

Well as we go into the weekend we would like all our fellow bloggers to keep updating this blog on any new developments and NEVER SAY DIE.

I have my letters to the TRC and the Media Ministry Ready and also hope to send a letter to the Consumer Affairs Authority and the President and also hope to send an email to Consumers International I hope many will back us up also by sending letters, I agree with Admin about the fact that posted mails are better and more official than emails, it is even better if registered post is used. The weekend will be full of drafting letters. Since no CBNSat to watch.

Hurry up folks please join in and lets request the authorities to put CBNSat and LBN back on line.

Can somebody draft a good letter with all the details and publish here (specially for LBN customers as CBN csutomers seems to have sent pleanty of letters already)

We could then use the same and post it with our original addresses.

Has any of you (LBN customers) have already sent letters?

Dude said...

Each person has to draft his/her own letter stating their grievances with regard to the closure of LBN.

For CBNSat each of us are drafting our own letters or else it will seem like the same person has sent the letters using different names.

So please draft your own letter otherwise no one will take any notice of the letters.

Please hurry up I hear that CBNSat has appealed to the Supreme Court, so maybe LBN also maybe called up later. So send your letters fast and by registered post please.

Thats write,but some one just highlight the vital points that are required to be there.

CBNsat has filed a case in the SUPREME COURT through Mr.Romesh De Silva PC and the authorities will not be allowed to play Hankey Pankey as in the magistrate court and thell have to orepare to face the reality,I have the fullest confidance in the supreme court lately and the judgment on the Daya Sandagiri case is an clear indication that justice will be done to anyone with corruption and victimisation disregarding who the culprits are and who are behind them

Does anyone seriously think writing letters will help? if those bastards really want to keep LBN and CBNSat closed I doubt they'll give a shit about any letters.

Is it true that there is a chance that LBN will be issued a temporary license?
