CBNsat Supreme Court hearing today (Nov 6th)

With today 5 months have been completed since the shutdown of CBNsat. Today CBNsat will be having a hearing at the Supreme Court. We are not sure what can be expected from this hearing and whether anything good can come out of it. However according to unconfirmed information that we are receiving, CBNsat is still negotiating with an undisclosed party in order to resume transmissions and we also hear that there is considerable progress that is being made.

Whether or not this will be mentioned at courts today is not certain. However it seems that one of the individuals behind the CBNsat closure B.A.C. Abeywardena is now in trouble over an issue at the Tea Board and has been asked to resign from his post as Chairman. However it seems that he is refusing to do so. Abeywardena you should understand that what you do to others will always come back to you since you are being cursed by over 25,000 customers of CBNsat and its 100,000 viewers and also the customer base of LBN. Resign without destroying the Tea Industry in Sri Lanka.

We are not sure on the time of todays hearing so please keep us updated on it. We also request our fellow bloggers to update us on the result of todays hearing as the day progresses.

I think CBNSat should mention any possible deals with another party, at the court hearing. They brought it up at the last hearing and CJ asked them to go try to make a deal. I think it is only appropriate to bring it up at the hearing.
Does anyone know if CJ is in good health? Or if he is still not well, can someone else sit on his behalf?

today's forecast: there have been some alien sightings over the past 12 months in sri lanka. the MOD has to ascertain whether this has anything to do with satellite TV with the intention of avoiding a possible invasion. a committee will be appointed shortly to probe into the issue. untill such time clearance will be withheld.
