11-Student Abduction Case: Sinhala Mother Of Abducted Youth Pens Her Agony Following Gota’s Candidacy

Minutes after the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) formally declared the former Secretary to the ministry of Defence Gotabaya Rajapaksa as their presidential candidate at the forthcoming presidential election, Jenifer Weerasinghe, mother of Dilan, one of the 11 young men who went missing in the infamous ’11-youth abduction case’, took to Facebook last night calling out the government’s incompetence in serving them justice and colluding with the culprits to ensure their safety.

In her strongly moving Facebook post, Jenifer says that since the justice system of this country has failed her and many parents like her who have lost their children, they are only left with the hope that one day these culprits will face the wrath of nature.

Jenifer’s status is as follows;

The tears in these eyes waiting for justice for my son who went missing among the 11 boys have still not dried out. I waited for justice through the courts, still waiting for justice to be served on us. we silently observed the dramas that were performed by the politicians who colluded with these culprits under the guise of war heroes. Watched with heavy hearts. We watched how they continued to enjoy their lives with their children. We watched people blinded with patriotism who refused to acknowledge the crimes committed by them and continued to praise them as war heroes. We watched all who tried to use our sorrow for their benefit. We also saw the few who, with the greatest difficulty and amidst threats, tried hard to bring justice to our children. I have watched mothers and fathers weeping in their hearts every day for the past decade, just like me unable to bear the loss of our children. We silently watched all this with agony in our hearts. Even after all of this if there is no law in the country that can punish these criminals we will continue to watch until nature and karma takes its course.

Dilan went to meet his friend Rajeev Naganathan, who was scheduled to leave the country to pursue higher studies, that fateful night back in 2008 when they were abducted and never to be found to date. That was the last time Jenifer saw his dear son. the incident, investigations have now revealed, was done with the knowalge of the top officers in the Navy while Gotabaya Rajapaksa was the Defencce Secretary.

Jenifer’s determination to find her son even after ten years since the incident has not diminished by an ounce. She is seen at every court hearing in any court where this issue was taken up from the Magistrates Court in Fort to the Supreme Court, despite the continuous let downs.

Most recently being the then defence secretary during under whose watch these boys were abducted by the Navy was declared a candidate for the upcoming presidential election.

Final phase of investigations revealed that the former Navy Commander Wasantha Karannagoda was aware of the incident and that the boys were kept under Navy’s watch was asked to be produced before court after naming him as the 14 suspect accused of conspiracy to murder. Karannagoda who failed to appear before the CID or courts then filed a Petition to the Supreme Court, while in hiding, seeking an order preventing his arrest. He was recently promoted to the rank of Admiral of the Fleet by President Maithripala Sirisena. Parents of the missing boys including Jenifer was handed over the biggest let down by the leaders of this nation who came into power on the false promises that justice will be served on them.

    The most heinous crime of all is ‘Obstruction of Justice’. People who obstruct justice are far worse than murderers, torturers, rapists, terrorists and war criminals. It is because of the cynical and unholy manoueverings of the former that the latter class of criminals escape punishment. Thus, it could be said that obstruction of justice is the most egregious crime of all.

    Who are these ‘Obstructors of Justice’? You all bloody well know who!

    My heart goes out to Mrs Jenifer Weerasinghe & to all those parents whose children were never heard of again. Rubbing salt to the wound is the fact that those allegedly responsible were promoted (or aspire) to higher offices. There is no justice in this country but this is nothing new. Abductions & disappearances happened from the time of Premadasa’s reign, whether it was the JVP or govt. vigilantes, there have been no accountability for countless murders, the most high profile being the abduction of journalist Richard de Zoysa from his home in the presence of his mother & though his abductors were identified, the investigation was scuttled & shoved under the proverbial carpet.

    The world is changing. The average citizen prefers a tough talking leader who condones murder (for the greater good?) from Trump in the US & Putin in Russia to Dutate in Philippines & dictators in Africa & South America. Despite being directly or indirectly responsible for violence & murders, these leaders continue to have massive support. Whether it is the christian white supremacists in the US, Wahhabi Muslim extremists in the Middle East or nationalistic Hindus in India & ignorant Buddhists in Sri Lanka, the misguided people are exploited by self serving politicians. The lawless society starts here.

      Rajapakse clan are not going to change. Murder and swindling are going to continue. What happened to Idi Amin will befall these bunch, with foreign intervention which will be sanctioned by counties cherishing human rights and transparency.

          Shafeek,

          “Ven.” Ratmalana Thero is busy with Wimal Modaeanss, to help all those women who underwent cesarean operations, to get pregnant.

          So far, they have helped two women to get pregnant. Dr, Bandaranaike of the Kurunegala hospital has a 4-page list of women.

    Dear Lady,
    what has happened has happened. It is sad Yes !!!!!!!! very sad to look back at the past but please in the name of God do not repeat do not go out and cast your vote for any bastard of a politician in sri lanka.
    As long as you live make a solemn promise that you and your family will never again cast your votes in favor of any bastard sri lankan politician.
    70 years since independence and not one bastard has delivered what they promised.
    Why !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! because they are all bastards who cannot recognize their mothers.
    You are a mother and a good mother and your son will always look down on you as a mother where ever he may be but the politicians don’t have ethical mothers and that’s why they are bastards.
    Bastards are men who cannot recognize their mothers.
    Sri lanka will always be ruled by bastards until a few good men wake up and turn the tide around to wash away the bastards who lie,cheat, rob, murder,corrupt, and do all other vile deeds in the name of vulgar politics.
    May God Almighty the creator of heaven & earth bring down his divine Justice upon the heads and the families of all the bastards who mingle with the devil in playing politics and may all their generations be CURSED for ever.
    Sri lanka will very soon head the way of Syria, a lesson to be learnt never to be forgotten in another five hundred years.

    The tragedy in Syria was externally imposed (more than induced) by interested parties in the region and far to the west.
    Ours is a festering self inflicted wound that outsiders ensure remains unhealed.
    Frankly, keeping Gota out alone is not good enough. There is need for a clear, well defined programme that the candidate will be committed to..

    ‘Minutes after the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLPP) formally declared….’

    Obviously planned by the UNP under whose watch the Embilipitiya school boys were tortured and killed.

    Madam do not expect any help from Yahapalana, the UNP or Gota. they are all the same.

    Evil triumphs when good men do nothing.
    Where are all good men at this time of crisis.
    Evil now seeks to run the nation.
    An unjust ruler, will gather people like him for assistance here and abroad.
    Will they stand in a queue for the ‘crumbs which will fall off the table’.
    This happens after every election.
    Does Sri Lanka have one good person to contest the presidency.
    If so, let him/her say so and bare his complete record of service.
    If such a person is elected, there will no more mothers like Jenifer.

      Justice
      There are enough good people around, far better than any leader of this country has known.
      But contesting the presidency is not the choice of an individual.
      Electoral democracy is an expensive game that only the filthy (and) rich can play.

    Again and again we have the same old corrupt thieves and murderers contesting for president. We demand the Election Commissioner to include “None of the Above” option to the ballot papers for the future elections.

    Who wants to bring the US Citizen White Van butcher Gota to power? He was the one who massacred the prisoners at Welikada, the one who murdered the journalists, the one who butchered the people at Rathupaswala for asking drinking water. He is a killing machine. He will continue to kill all those who protest even for minor issues and his victims will end up as tiffin for his pet Sharks. If this dictator becomes the next president, it will be a military rule. Another Pol Pot in the making.

    The Ultra-Nationalist Racists are foolishly backing Gota for next president not knowing that they themselves will be his next victims. They wrongly believe that only an Anti-minority Sinhala-Buddhist hero like Gota can threaten, suppress and control the minorities. The Sinhala-Buddhist majority is more vulnerable to this Pseudo-Patriot Megalomaniac Gota’s White Van killing games. We have already seen how he massacred the prisoners at Welikada, murdered the journalists, and butchered the Sinhala-Buddhists at Rathupaswala for asking drinking water.

    It is a well-known secret that Gota hates his own brother Basil and his nephew Namal. Both Mahinda and Shrinthi knows this and also most of the members in the joint opposition also knows him, they do not like Gotabaya but have no choice. Only Kumara Welgama had the backbone to call the spade a spade. The SLPP members know very well how much a dictator Gota will become and all of them will be made his slaves.

      The Bayyas think GR will make SL another Singapore through “discipline” and dream of some racially homogenous paradise for the Sinhalese, but they are dead wrong. This man will is ruthless when it comes to what he wants. Come some time the country will default on the loans China gave to accelerate the economy. Then when Beijing cuts this island piece by piece, when protesting workers get mowed down and when one gets disappeared at the slightest sign of dissent will they realize. Sinhalese brothers if you are reading this, know that nobody; not your leaders nor your clergy will ever enshrine you.You will always eat dust while a few build their hegemony while deflecting your frustration and anger at the other.

        Easy-E,
        “The Bayyas think GR will make SL another Singapore through “discipline”.
        Whether it is Singapore or Ethiopia it does not matter to Baiyas. What Baiyas want is to make this country a safe place to live which these donkeys failed to do.
        It was Toiyas and Colombians who benefitted mostly by restoring peace by eradicating Demala terrorism by Rajapakses but these ungrateful ‘Awajathaka’ BPs have forgotten that. Native Sinhalayo and Vedda Eththo do not want these ‘Para Parayas’ in this country. Please get lost!

          Eagle Eye,

          You say, ‘Native Sinhalayo and Vedda Eththo do not want these ‘Para Parayas’ in this country. Please get lost! Is it the reason you have been chased out from Sri Lanka. Bloody Idiot!

          Interesting. If the minorities who tow a significant proportion
          of the economic line and the countries (US, India, Middle East) that keep Sri Lanka afloat through aid (India for the sake of Demalu and ME for the Muslims) are to leave the natives alone, then who is going to feed the poor Samurdhi beggars, the Punks, the fake monks and your leaders?

          A lot of Sinhalese don’t share your sentiments; few are waking up to the programming chicken hawks like you propagate in order to fulfill vested interests. Young people are coming together and are rejecting these prejudices and starting to look beyond identity.

          P.S. if Demalu, Burgher and Moors are to leave. Please recall all the Sinhalese Domestic workers from ME and all the pingutharayas living in and enjoying welfare in UK, Australian, US and EU welfare. Thanks

    Even in an era devoid of ‘Law & Order’, what Jenifer Weerasinghe posts in her Facebook about her missing son Dilan is about violation of human rights.
    .
    During and after the 1987 uprising/rebellion/insurrection, youths were taken into custody under PTA. Some, with political connections, were released/rehabilitated. There are thousands of mothers of the ‘disappeared’.
    Soldier Gotler, active in the then GoSL Army, thought that the grief of the mothers will go away.
    The silence of the much mellowed political party JVP can be heard hundreds of km away!

    Objective of all these is to divide the Sinhala Vote. All others are ganged up ethnic group or religious group wise. Sinhala politicians divide Sinhala people so the others can benefit. that is what the International community wants too.

    karannagoda said that he had contacted gota when he found the boys were in the navy camp.Next thing he knew they were missing after that.To stop him from giving that evidence he has been promoted and not arrested because he will drag gota into it.Sirisena has given a slap to mothers.

    Let us not forget that this government, a team consisting of MY3 and RW (now apparently split), consecrated by Ven. Maduluwawe Sobhitha and others, was formed to bring in good governance or “Yahapalanaya”. That word has now reduced to a brand name and its sacrosanct lost. Not only Jenifer’s son, Dilan, but the issues involving Lasantha Wickramatunge and a whole heap of media personnel require justice to be done and THAT WAS NOT DONE. Some bits and pieces were brought out just to raise our hopes but no conviction. The only conviction that took place was in the “sil-redi” case and that too is on appeal. In many cases already concluded, the prosecution was unsuccessful, notably that of then President’s Chief of Staff and other Civil Servants (Is it Sival Servants?) So one wonders what is going on. Clearly wool was pulled over our eyes.

    This Government had been looking for a slightest clue from anywhere, to arrest Gotabhaya. If he is involved in this, why couldn’t they take action against him for almost 5 years? If there is evidence to prove this allegation, why couldn’t this mother provide it to the Authorities all these years This is nothing but another Mud Slinging Campaign to Discredit him during election time..

    Lankans have hit the immoral bottom, now there is no such value for a life. If one is murdered Lankans attitude is it your problem not mine. Not just the politicians includes religious bigots, doctors (just see the apathy and greediness), judiciary and the public in general. Whether the losses were during JVP, LTTE,Easter, White Vans, kidnap for ransom, Murders by service personal, prison murders, war victims, protest death, journalist , political killings, DOES IT MATTER??????? For immoral Lankans it does not matter at all. If matters GR wont be standing for presidency, Karanagoda wont be promoted, the murders of Lasantha/Thaj, Trinco would have been behind bars for good, there would have been Law and Order , not what we have now “Low and Odour” and most of all Mam, you will not be writing this heart wrenching letter today.

    Unfortunately no one is shedding tears for the tens and thousands of Sinhala men, women, children and monks brutally massacred by Demala barbarians.
    ‘Para’ Demala invaders from Hindusthan started massacring Native Sinhalayo and Vedda Eththo in 3rd Century BC. If Sinhalayo think that Demala barbaric massacres of Native Sinhalayo and Vedda Eththo ended in 2009, they are wrong. Sinhalayo should be prepared to face massacres in future because killing is in genes of Demalu. Otherwise how can they slit the tummy of pregnant women, pull out the babies, throw up and hold a bayonet.

    Good Morning my Countrymen !

    For more than 100 years the entire country has fallen into a DEEP SLUMBER. Our forefathers have forgotten and forgiven the 1915 Riots the first in our memory that ravaged 7 of the 9 provinces with murders, flames that burnt out peoples shops and mosques. The victims were denied justice and compensation while the accused have been our NATIONAL HEROES AND FATHER OF THE NATION.That is our PROUD HISTORY!

    The so called GREATEST PATRIOT OF THE TIME , risked his live in the thick of WWI and sailed all the way to LONDON argued with the Colonial Secretary and secured the release of those imprisoned in this country FOR THE CRIMES COMMITTED and persuaded the transfer of the GOVERNOR A BRITISH SUBJECT.

    Fortunately, ‘Jenifer Weerasinghe, mother of Dilan, one of the 11 young men who went missing in the infamous ’11-youth abduction case’, took to Facebook last night calling out the government’s incompetence in serving them justice and colluding with the culprits to ensure their safety ‘ has tried to put us up from the COMA this country has fallen.

    Can anyone truly say that GOTTA is the only demon this country has seen?

    Some are asking where have the good people gone ? , unaware of the economic principle ‘BAD MONEY DRIVES AWAY THE GOOD MONEY’. In my humble opinion this same principle is good for the humans as well.

    Please look for a goodman and if you find one, find out from him if he would dare challenge and contest those whom you call Heroes and Politicians.

    I salute your courage and relentless pursuance of justice. No politician will take your case

    Here is a clue to seek justice

    Go to Professor AS, ex VC of SITAM who is indicted for covering up Thajudin’s assassination case evidence. Pl ask him to tell the truth or ask his family to pursue him to tell the truth.

    He can do it. He has a long record of switching sides with no loyalties when it suits him – Dumped Uni time GF for a Doctor, Ex GMOA secretary to VC SITAM, Turned murder evidence to accident evidence. He can easily dump his god fathers to save his skin

    If you do that you are not just helping your missing son – helping a nation awaiting justice for many things

    Gothaya ,is a well known Boothaya , Greece yakas and other yakas will be all over again.
    Gota is the architect who started the race riots for political gains who is now followed by other parties and across asia. We shall wait and see whether the modayas vote for this tyrant evil dictator and make it a Rajapakse monarchy . Drug lords kasippu karayas and the thugs are already celebrating.
