LBN Magistrates Court hearing today

We have a received an email from Mr. Shirantha Herath Managing Director of LBN stating that they received the TRC license on 29th December 2006. Accordingly they filed a motion in the Magistrates Court yesterday (Jan 1st) to get the seals lifted. The AG's Department had requested time till today to revert and the case will be taken up today (Jan 2nd) at the Magistrates Court at 2pm.

They expect the seals to be removed and to commence test transmissions thereafter.

At this moment we would like to once again wish you all a "Very Happy and Prosperous New Year 2007" and express our thanks to Mr. Shirantha Herath for updating us on the latest status.

Please keep us updated on the latest regarding the LBN court case and any other information as the day progresses.

Carry on LBN MD’s cheering squad!


The first three comments by ‘anonymous’ had obviously come from Shirantha’s inner circle ‘congratulating’ him vigorously for a ‘job well done’ . A fantastic joke…a comedy of errors, to say the least. We cannot imagine there are nitwits of this nature within the MD’s team who are so na├»ve and immature to congratulate a boss for ‘doing it alone’ within six months…that’s half the year gone!
Come on, MD take these guys to the zoo because they belong to where they keep the monkeys or pat them on the back and take them to the German Restaurant for a nice treat and give them a pay hike also because they damn well deserve all the goodies for ‘still being with you’ as they admit.
Stop these crude jokes and get on with your transmission. We are sick of your sick jokes…unchain your performing monkeys so that they can join their clan in the wilds and spare us the agony.
Don’t drag jokes too far Shirantha because they can unmask you…Be grateful and light a candle and offer a prayer to those media guys who did all the work on your behalf. The time is ripe for you to now run your company sensibly without relying on nauseating cheering squads to light firecrackers on your behalf. They are only exposing your incompetence to handle a crisis. Come out of hiding even now and be a man! Show the world you can also perform without wilfully branding yourself a clumsy, spineless fool.

Greate Comments from real hero. Where have you been up to now? Fuck off man

Whether it is LBN MD or CBN MD, we should admit the fact that they have done their best with these crooks who were behind the closer. Remember they were backed by the government authorities. When they are on the same side it's not as rosy flow you think.

Dear efficient guy,

If you have any personal agenda with LBN MD you better sort out within the circle or out side. We just congratulate that’s the tradition we carry out in this country. Even after 6days or 6 months things have changed. We have to appreciate that fact.

Kabool lanka was closed for 3years, but after it was acquired by another company, but most of the employees suffered and got the benefits, if you have the guts to call the Kabbol management & asked any explanation……or else have you ever sent a single lunch pack for those suffered employees……

Dear friend,

Muguntan G was order to sell his business, but Shiranta H getting the licenses under his name, which is a significant victory for LBN.

SORRY TO HAVE HURT THE ‘CHEERING SQUAD’

Come on, cheering squad….I seem to have hit where it hurts..nurse the wounds, but don’t talk bull. Did you send lunch packs to the ‘suffering Kabool employees?’. Perhaps, your father must have been working there. Of course, I didn’t because firstly my parents don’t eke out a living by selling lunch packs and secondly, I didn’t pay hard earned money in return for a decent service from Kabool. Please try to get it into your thick heads, cheering squad, that for LBN I did pay what they asked for and expected a reasonable service from them as much as any normal human being would do. I don’t know for sure whether you guys fit into that category. It is not my past-time to go around feeding people who had lost their jobs and I feel that anybody who had not been examined by a psychiatrist would expect me to do so either. The poor and downtrodden I do help, but sorry man, it is not financially viable to go beyond that exercise.
There is also a reference to crooks…ah, like insanity only the degree varies. We are small crooks and they are bigger crooks. Perhaps, you cannot stomach the terminology (provided you understand it). So, the same ‘crooks’ gave the licence. It was not a new set of crooks, surely. Where do you not find crooks…police, customs, courts, municipality and more often than not, also within your own self if you are bold enough to admit it. Don’t talk bloody bullshit. You should be working for Careclean..the garbage people.
Come on boys, lead the gang and cheer all the way…make Shirantha the king…the man who did wonders in just more than six months..
What the hell do you mean that all of them are on the same side? Then, the situ wouldn’t have changed at all because it ’s the same old pack ruling the roost. Stop entertaining the clowns. Playing to gallery and using obscene words are ample testimony to the low depths you can stoop to. And your upbringing. Your mama should have taught you some good English so that you need not be ashamed of what you write.
Shame, if you have nothing to bray about keep your trap tightly shut. At least then they will think S’s boys are bright sparks. Blame everybody in authority now…sure man this darn earth is crooked..not that I cannot dance!! Keep on hammering the fours and the sixes, you stinking pandam karayas. Where the hell were you when we were suffering in silence? Just woke up I suppose after the problem has been supposedly sorted out to lead the cheer gang..Go the zoo where your relatives are waiting to host a grand reception..at least they will teach the cheering boys some fundamentals and also more importantly to write decent English.
Bring me a wise man and I will argue, but with 100 fools (members of the cheering squad) and I cannot do anything but to remain silent because I value my words and my breath. So, I shall remain silent henceforth. Cheer all the way to Kanatte…
Lord, forgive them for they do not know what they do.

WELL SAID BRAVE VOICE

Give the pandam karayas a big cheer!!! Long live, the pandamas..let there be more oil in your pandams in 2007 to light your boss' way to stardom...
Give a hand..a hearty applause to the henchemen!!! Give them a double bonus MD...they deserve it for all the crowing..

yenljuAdmin!

I am surprised that you allow this sort of crap to be published. Bloggers should stick to the main point, ie to get information about LBN and not read crap from deranged people.

Please remove all "crap" mail

Thanks

DISH TV INSTALLATION PROBLEM :

I had chaps try to install the dish tv antenna..they tried for hours but unable to get any signal...except when for once they held it in their hand the signal came for a very short time....they will come again ...they suspect its the LNB and i dont agree with them !

Anonymous said...

Looks as if we will have to wait till the 9th to know the exact date of re-commencement. I have decided that if it is another postponement or dead rope I will ask LBN for a refund and get a CBN connection. Enough is Enough.

Does anybody know the status of the above?

Next Court hearing is on 09th Jan 2007 that has nothing to do with the above motion.

Don't speak to reps from LBN ( Clueless & headless)The test transmission they are talking has been there for a long time only on thursdays.

Motion was filed to get the test transmission on full until the next hearing day on 09th I belive!!

As humans we genegarally congradulate when we have a victory. They is nothing wrong with it. However, everybody knows that LBN didn't handle the case proper manner. But that's history.

Eventhough LBN received the TRC license, they need so many things address before the full transmission

* Media licence
* Repair the infrastructure (this can only be possible with a full test transmission) as the usual test transmission was limted vertually to their premises ( according to LBN Technical guys)
* Recruit new staff
* sign up the legal contracts

Remember even CBN still doing their test transmission.

It’s very interesting some crooked media people have come on to this blog. They doesn’t have the courage to wrights against the corrupted politicizations or innocent civilians get massacred in the country. Only these jokers no to criticize a victory. After all knowing the entire scenario about the cable television industry. Scared to write against

1.TRC
.MEDIA MINISTRY
.CID
JUDICIAL SYSTEM

Only to know to criticize a innocent decent victory…….

LBN have to withdraw the cases against the relevant authorities immediately. That’s to be taken up today, nevertheless the apple court stars only on Monday after vacation. Guys its not easy as we think………..

This is the latest from "LBN" : They are "hoping" to start the test transmission from today and will gradually keep adding channels and they "hope" that it will be normal in two weeks.
