A Trembling Gotabaya Appears Before FCID

A pathetic Gotabaya Rajapaksa appeared before the Financial Crimes Investigations Division (FCID) on Wednesday and sold down the drain people who worked for him. He pleaded he was clean and not guilty of any offence.

GotabayaThe first part of the questioning, which went on for a total of six hours, was on the procurement of MiG-27 fighter jets for the Sri Lanka Air Force (SLAF). A nervous Rajapaksa, his hands shivering, said the purchases were done in a proper way. When subjected to deeper questioning he said the person responsible for all those matters was Air Marshal Roshan Gunatileke, who was the Air Force Commander at that time.

Gotabaya said that the former Air Force Commander was responsible “if there were financial irregularities.” He said he was not to be blamed for that. He said people should realize that the war was won because these fighters were there and there should not be any investigations into these matters. In the process Gothabaya forgot that as then functioning Secretary of the Ministry of Defence, he was the Chief Account Officer and was responsible for all financial transactions.

He was also questioned at length on manipulation of shares at Lanka Hospitals Limited, the former Apollo Hospital. There his close friend and front man Dilith Jayaweera had allegedly manipulated shares to go up from Rs 28 to Rs 64. It was thereafter that the shares were sold to an Indian company. Jayaweera had obtained inside information from another director of Lanka Hospitals, Nalaka Godahewa. Both Jayaweera and Godahewa were directors of George Steuarts Securities which were trading at the Colombo Stock Exchange. FCID will now question Godahewa.

When the questioning was over Gota was shivering with nervousness. He called one of his security officers and ordered that his vehicle should be reversed inside the FCID premises so he can avoid the television cameras and media. The men did so and the one time powerful and power hungry Gota, now left helpless and exposed for alleged corrupt activity, left without facing the media. If he is so clean as he claims, why did he not face the questioning and avoid the media asked an onlooker. The onlooker said Gota thinks he is still wielding power and trying to cover up matters. That is why he sought a Supreme Court order.

    He was trembling no doubt. But Field Marshal Sarath
    Fonseka did not tremble when Gotabaya sent him to
    prison on trumped up charges.

    Gotabaya is getting what he gave. Ditta Damma Vedaneeya
    Kamma. Today he is saying he is a practicising Buddhist
    and believes strongly in religion.

    True? What about white vans and the killings? Does he
    not have blood in his hands?

    Why is this bugger so frightened if he had done no
    wrong and no harm?

    How did he authorise a military delegation to go with
    Avante Garde owner Senadipathi? Is this also a good
    act. No crook ever admits they are one. Not even when
    they are proved in Courts.

      I wish a similar interrogation (and deserving punishment) happens to Gota, Mahinda and all the war criminals in an international court of inquiry on the crimes against Tamils during the war.

      Let’s pray, in the name of one and a half lakhs of innocent Tamils massacred during the war, that justice is delivered to these victims of Sinhala state racism in the near future.

        Dear Thiru,

        Innocent Tamils died in the war.
        But why the Nelsonian Eye about those who died because of the LTTE? Are you a LTTE activist?

        Does that figure of 150,000 include the 100,000 Tamil children that were sacrificed by Ms Adele Bala and Prabha who forced them to take up arms and fight a Man’s war that Men like you deserted?

        Prabha is dead but Adele is living amongst you in the UK.

        You don’t need to PRAY to bring her to Justice, she is within arms reach.

        Why are you not campaigning to force the UK govt to arrest her and hand her over to the ICC?

        Afraid that you will become an accessory for Financing the war?

            Dear Cholan,

            Please read my comment again.

            I am asking Thiru why he is BLIND to the fact that a minimum 100,000 Tamil Children’s lives were destroyed by Ms Adele Bala and Prabha.

            Why he is not calling for her arrest and prosecution at the ICC.

            If his heart bleeds, like he says it does, WHY is he not asking for Justice for the destroyed lives of several future generations of Tamils that Ms Adelle Bala is responsible for.

            There is ample photographic evidence to convict her.

            SHE IS LIVING RIGHT UNDER THE NOSE OF PEOPLE LIKE THIRU.

            She is also the HIGHEST RANKING LTTE COMMANDER currently living and within very easy reach of the UK Govt and hence the ICC.

            Please not that I have not defended Gotabaya R for any crimes that he may have committed in my comment.

              There is a procedure when they implement international law at UN …..grind slowly ..but sure

              Not like your MURDERPAKSE AND DOGABAYA who have arrested many people and finished them whenever they like without worry about the law

              1-Parading naked dead bodies of LTTE fighters in tractor is a war crime ..

              2-Buldozing the Tamil cemeteries and army played foot ball on this is a war crime ..

              Even babarians in the history never behaved like this …

              you are a Buddhist are you happy about this ???

              DOGGABAYA and Marshall Filed are being accused for 100 s of crimes in N-E …just one proof is enough to send them for life imprisonment …this is international law

                Dear Cholan,

                You are avoiding the issue my friend. Why?

                My question is about WHY the Tamil Bleeding Hearts (such as Thiru) do not bleed for the Tamil Children that were sacrificed by the Tamils themselves?

                How is it possible for Ms Adele Balasingham to live in freedom with IMPUNITY, in the UK?

                She is a War Criminal and the HIGHEST Ranking LTTE Commander DIRECTLY involved in the war, living in the West. No one denies it because everyone knows she is a war criminal.

                There is ample Video and photographic evidence of her involvement in Child Soldiering.

                She is responsible for the destruction of the lives of at least a 100,000 Tamil Children.

                Do you want JUSTICE for them?
                If not why not?

                Is it because those Bleeding Hearts do not want to move against the LTTE? Is it because they too are LTTE in sheep’s clothing?

                WHY ARE YOU AFRAID TO TOUCH Ms ADELE BALASINGHAM?

                Please don’t try to change the subject again.

                    Dear Cholan,

                    You are straying again.

                    The question was why the BLIND eye towards the CHILD KILLER?

                    Is it because she is still an LTTE terrorist and the other terrorists are flocking around her to protect her?

                    Your difficulty is due to the hypocrisy and the pseudo humanitarian concern shown towards the Tamil people of Lanka. The intent is not genuine and the ulterior motives gets exposed when questions about Adelle are asked.

                      You were fed by Sinhala mass media a one side story..over many years..

                      Look not a Single southern press mentioned about the rape of the Tamil student ,,but they are high lightening stoning the police station and the court twisting the story..

                      During LTT time children went to school even went to university….
                      remember during the peak of JVP threat when Sinhala areas schools closed TV went on showing how Tamil students attending schools happiely??

                      People did their work as usual…

                      LTTE never grabbed kids on the way to school …and killed a road side vender….

                      They have only targeted spies who were selling their own Tamils to Sinhala state …still used to warn them 3 times before punishment..

                      Thugs and rowdies,IRCs were punished so they never repeated their mistake …

                      Look what happend to day ..liquor..drugs (thanks to Sinhala state)..looting..kidnaping..murders all daily event in N-E …this is the liberation MURDERPAKSE has given to Tamils in N_E

                      This is the last chance for Sinhalease otherwise even if Buddha come alive he can’t stop the division of this country.
                      Already many countries have told this to your Sinhala government personally and in writing…

                      So what is next???

                      Dear Cholan,

                      I can see your discomfort at staying focused on the question I asked Thiru. Thiru has gone silent but you go on.

                      I also not that you are trying to whitewash the LTTE. With ample evidence of their Barbarism in the Public Domain, doing so is foolish.

                      At least a 100,000 Tamil children’s lives were destroyed by Adele Balasingham.

                      Do you want Justice for them or Not?

                      BTW please remember that the children and women were used because the MEN bravely deserted Prabahkaran and the fight for Eelam.

              You are absolutely right. Adel needs to be questioned not only for her connections with the banned terrorist organization both in UK & SL but also for illegal entry in to SL and appropriately charged. However, having said that, persons such as Karuna Amman, KP, Pillayan, Iniya Bharathi, Douglas Devananda who committed more heinous crimes towards humanity and are today holding comfortable positions of power graced & protected fully by the GOSL in the name of reconciliation but actually to cover up the higher level crimes committed by higher up’s both in the SLAF and GOSL. Adele’s involvement may have been only political support to the LTTE, the living LTTE chaps classified as terrorists internationally committed crimes specific to their title while the democratically elected GOSL and SLAF being a state entity committed towards protecting her citizens and rules of engagement in a war zone have committed blatant crimes to the level of genocide and crimes towards humanity. What needs to be understood is how State entities who are committed to human conduct behave worse than terrorists or even animals.

                Dear Spark,

                Thiru was trying to propagate his propaganda.
                I brought him back to reality.

                What you said “Adele’s involvement may have been only political support to the LTTE” is quite an understatement.

                Adele was DIRECTLY involved in Child Soldiering. She is the Commander and Trainer of the LTTE “Baby Brigade”. She commissioned by garlanding with Cyanide capsule necklace, child soldiers she trained.

                You may have not seen the BBC documentaries that were aired in the past. I may be wrong here but I believe she has also defended the use of children in her book or at an interview (not sure of this though).

                It is true that Karuna Amman, KP, Pillayan, Iniya Bharathi, Douglas Devananda etc are also war criminals.

                But the question you need to ask yourself is are they getting any better treatment than what was offered to Prabahkaran when he was living. Wasn’t Prabahkaran the MOST Heinous Criminal of All? Yet he would have been living and leading Tamil politics today if he had the wisdom to do what the people you named did.

                Resulting in the absence of a Human Shield and any deaths by war.

                Then there would not be any clamour for Justice by the people who are clamouring now.

                Adele Balasingham is responsible. There is no way out of it. But, the nature of the responsibility of the LTTE is different from that of the state authorities. The LTTE was a unit operating in Sri Lanka within the domestic jurisdiction of Sri Lanka. It is not subject to any international instruments except that it was under an obligation to fight in accordance with the Geneva Conventions. Its responsibility for the many murders it committed both of Sinhalese and Tamils is primarily under Sri Lankan law. It is the responsibility of the Sri Lankan Government to ask for the extradition of Adele B and try her for the murders she is alleged to be associated with. It is futile to argue that there is no responsibility in the LTTE for the enormous violence it unleashed against Tamil and Sinhalese civilians. It was no angelic force but a brutal and murderous outfit, the redeeming feature of which was that it was fighting for a just cause in an unjust manner.

                A government killing its people is in a different position. There are human rights conventions that deal with the situations and procedures for punishing violators. They do not provide any justification for the killing of civilians by a government under a constitutional and international law duty to protect them. There is a difference. Adele is just a red herring when it comes to the prosecution of those in the Rajapakse government responsible for the killing of civilians.

                  Dear Ponkoh Sivakumaran,

                  It is refreshing to see an intelligent comment. Thank you.

                  Re “But, the nature of the responsibility of the LTTE is
                  different from that of the state authorities”

                  Agreed

                  Re “The LTTE was a unit operating in Sri Lanka within the
                  domestic jurisdiction of Sri Lanka”

                  You are wrong there. LTTE was operating all over the world. Even in International waters. They even assassinated a former
                  Indian Head of State. They hence came under International Jurisdiction as well as domestic jurisdiction.

                  Re “It is not subject to any international instruments
                  except that it was under an obligation to fight in accordance
                  with the Geneva Conventions”

                  Did they fight according to the Geneva Conventions? If they did not, can you list the clauses of the Geneva Convention that they transgressed?

                  Does torture, Taking Civilians Hostage etc covered by the
                  Geneva Conventions?

                  Re “Its responsibility for the many murders it committed
                  both of Sinhalese and Tamils is primarily under Sri Lankan law”

                  Not necessarily, as they have transgressed the Geneva Conventions.

                  Re “It is the responsibility of the Sri Lankan Government to ask for the extradition of Adele B and try her for the murders she is alleged to be associated with”

                  I did not write about the Murders or any other crime that Adelle committed. I wrote about Child Soldering. Is it allowed under the Geneva Conventions? If it is not, then those who transgressed it come under International Law and hence the ICC.

                  Re “…. the redeeming feature of which was that it was fighting for a just cause in an unjust manner”

                  The cause was not Just. It is what they were brain washed to believe. They were used as a Cat’s paw by an avaricious and power hungry Tamil high cast leadership who deprived the majority Tamil population of an education to keep them ignorant and malleable and easily incited.

                  The govts are partly to blame for not taking decisive and stern action to put down the Cast issues that kept the Tamil population oppressed and in abject slavery for centuries and even for several decades after independence thus allowing frustrations to build up amongst the Tamil low cast youth.

                  Re “A government killing its people is in a different position. There are human rights conventions that deal with the situations and procedures for punishing violators. They do not provide any justification for the killing of civilians by a government under a constitutional and international law duty to protect them”

                  We are discussing a War of Last Resort which commenced after decades of peace discussions involving several international govts failed to bring peace and an end to death and destruction of civilian lives and property. No govt could allow it to go on in perpetuity. And given the same situation No govt in the world would have allowed it to go on.

                  The govts duty is to the entire population of 21 million. It has a duty to protect them when a murderous gang was going on a killing spree all over the country. Please remember that the entire Tamil population of Jaffna that were resident there in 2009 were saved because the govt defeated the LTTE in December 1995 forcing them to abandon Jaffna. Civilians died then too.

                  I hope you recognize the very prominent part played by the terror flag waving, several 100,000 strong, Tamil Diaspora, whose campaign was not for the release of the civilians held by the LTTE terrorists but to save the Terrorists.

                  This was the MAIN REASON behind the LTTE intransigence and why they did not allow the Civilians to leave the human shield and their increasing brutality of chopping off limbs, shootings in the back and suicide bomb attacks on civilians who attempted to flee. It was also the MAIN REASON behind their continued fighting when Defeat was staring in their face.

                  We are discussing about a Terrorist outfit several tens of thousand strong that was fighting a conventional war and had a Naval, Land and an Air wing. They had long range artillery, Multi barrel rocket launchers, Surface to Air Missiles, High speed naval craft, Tons of C4 explosives, several Ships in international waters which were laden with Munitions and had sophisticated support equipment including Radar, GPS, Night Vision etc.

                  You cannot fight them with small arms. It needed superior armaments than what the terrorist possessed. LTTE heavy weaponry causes Area Damage, not localized damage and so does the weaponry used to overcome them.

                  This is not as simple as trying to save a school full of school children, or a Theater full of spectators or a hotel full of foreigners/locals or an Air craft full of civilians or a Temple full of devotees, taken hostage by a few terrorists armed with small arms, automatics or explosives. Even a rescue attempt of any of the above, which is insignificant in comparison to the SL situation Will cause Civilian Deaths.

                  Which govt will not attempt an armed rescue when all peaceful attempts fail even in a comparatively minute situation as above?

                  Re “Adele is just a red herring when it comes to the prosecution of those in the Rajapakse government responsible for the killing of civilians”

                  My comment was not about the MR govt and Adelle is not a Red Herring.

                  My question was designed to expose a Hypocritical Separatist who does not lose a single opportunity to carry out Separatist propaganda. That my query has hit the Bulls Eye is apparent by his silence and the number of worms crawling out of the woodwork to defend the LTTE.

                  If his heart bleeds for the “civilians” who lost their lives
                  because the terrorists were hiding behind them, then his heart should bleed very much more for the Tamil Children that were used as cannon fodder in a fruitless war.

                  That he is least concerned about the Tamil Children is patently clear by the Pin Drop Silence maintained with regards to Adelle Balasingham the MAIN perpetrator and architect of the Baby Brigade and the LTTE’s Child Soldier program.

                  Note- the reason I put the word civilians within quotes is because there were many terrorists in civilian attire amongst the actual civilians who were Held Hostage in a Human Shield by the LTTE.

                    Do you have prove that LTTE assassinated Rajiv Feroz Khan ??

                    Even Indian judicial experts are doubtful about the way the inquiry was made ignoring many suspects in Delhi and closed the case very fast only accusing LTTE….

                    Here now there are questions are being asked about the asssination of Sinhala Kadirgamar but the blame went to LTTE again ..modayas like you swallow the story quickly..

                    Under international law people who surrender to any enemy force in conflict must be in the protection of ICRC or UN ….but here both these organizations were threatened by DOGGABAYA thug and evacuated …and Buddhist Ban Kin Moon closed his eyes and allowed Buddhist Murderpaksae to butcher Tamils..

                    300,000 Tamils butchers by MURDERPAKSE & DOGGABAYA and shivering girls were raped by Sinhala army

                    There are excellent evidences for this submitted by your own Sinhala Majors and Army personals.

                    No way to escape..

                    Next STOP for MURDERPAKSE and DOGGABAYA is ICC at The Hgue

                This DOG-LAS has got 5,000 thugs under his command in Jaffna peninsula who are invovled in all illegal activities openly …

                What on earth prevent MY3 & Co., to arrest these thugs and lock them indefinitely ….

                How many Sinhalses (at least the relatives of 600 policemen ) are ready to march in Colombo and demand the arrests of these clowns???

                No guts? Scared ? Shivering ?

              It is called DOUBLE STANDARDS.

              What about the over 100,000 Ethnically Cleansed Tamil-Speaking Northern Muslims as well?

              Wilpattu clearance, Double Standards is another.

              Lanka and Eelam, the Land of DOUBLE STANDARDS?

              Why DOUBLE STANDARDS? Because they are MUSLIMS? Also ask why is that there is All this delay in settling the Expelled Muslims 6 years after the war Ended in the original home villages, and why is that they had to bring families froim Jsambabtota into Wilpattu? Because Yala was cleared for the Mattala Airport?

              Forgotten People – The Evicted and Displaced North Muslims of Sri Lanka (English)

              Published on Jun 1, 2013 The Evicted and Displaced North Muslims of Sri Lanka. The expulsion of the Muslims and other nations from the Northern province was an act of ethnic cleansing carried out by the Tamil militant Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) organization in October 1990. In order to achieve their goal of creating a mono ethnic Tamil state in the North Sri Lanka, the LTTE forcibly expelled the 72,000 strong Muslim population from the Northern Province.

              Please tell me, in international law, as a supposed to be law abiding country, why Sri Lankan state should not be prosecuted for war crimes just like Serbia was. If they didn’t commit any, then why do you worry?

              Serbians protested like you guys with all the extraneous arguments until the international community prevailed!

                Dear Thiru,

                I questioned your LYING propaganda about Brutality. You have gone silent on that subject because you belonged to the High Cast club that BRUTALY enslaved the Tamils for Centuries before Independence and Decades after Independence.

                Now you are moving the goal posts.

                But after you read my reply below you will again go underground for a long time.

                Rome Statute of the ICC state,

                Article 8, War crimes,
                2(b)(xxiii) Utilizing the presence of a civilian or other protected person to render certain points, areas or military forces immune from military operations; (page 7)

                This is what is known as a Human Shield.

                According to the above, IF the PRESENCE of a civilian (Tamil civilians) is used to protect military forces (LTTE Cadres) then the LTTE commits the war crime of using Human Shields.

                The POE confirms this “Presence” in their report (item 237) quoted below

                Quote
                “…… they forced thousands of civilians, often under threat of death, to remain in areas under their control during the last stages of the war and enforced this control by killing persons who attempted to leave that area”
                Unquote

                Thus according to the Rome Statute, Article 8, 2(b)(xxiii) The LTTE is GUILTY of the war crime of utilizing a Human Shield.

                Additionally there is ample evidence in the public domain of Amputations of limbs, shooting civilians in the back and suicide bombings of those who managed to reach safety, all of which was targeted at discouraging the civilians leaving LTTE areas.

                That the LTTE located Heavy Guns, Mortar pits, Ammunition dumps, Command centers amongst the civilians is also confirmed by evidence in the public domain (please see aerial photographs taken by Times of London photographers who overflew the No Fire Zones with the UNSG Ban Ki Moon).

                Thus EVERY CONDITION required to be satisfied by the Human Shield Law, of the Rome Statute, in order to find the LTTE guilty, has been satisfied and the LTTE should be found Guilty.

                Let’s see what the POE say (item 237)

                Quote
                “(With respect to the credible allegations of the LTTE’s refusal to allow civilians to leave the combat zone, the Panel believes that these actions did not, in law, amount to the use of human shields…”
                Unquote

                The experts are EXONERATING the LTTE!!!!

                As far as the UNSG’s POE is concerned the ICC statute does not exist.

                The UNSG’s POE has deliberately subverted International Law and exonerated the Guilty! Why did they do it?

                Let’s look at the repercussions of such a decision.

                If the LTTE was found guilty then those who financed them and procured armaments will automatically be guilty of the same crime and will get prosecuted.

                This means the Separatist big wigs of the BTF, GTF, TGTE etc, will be in the hot seat. Thus it is to their advantage to have this matter swept under the carpet.

                LTTE financiers were caught trying to bribe US officials. The TGTE is headed by Rudrakumaran, a known white collar Financial Thief who lost the license to practice as a lawyer in the US because of that.

                Was the UNSG’s POE similarly bribed by the TGTE or BTF or GTF or an organisation/person with lots of wealth?

                The conclusions made by the Panel of Experts, Mr. Darusman, Ms. Yasmin Sooka and Mr. Steven Ratner is contrary to International Law.

                Were they bought over?
                Are you planning to by some others too?

                Now Thiru you can climb back on to your rocker and continue with your rocking

          Dear Pasel,

          You wrote “May be OTC is a little boy doesn’t know much of the Tamil struggle and multiple riots by Sinhalese against Tamils”

          I hope you will change your assessment of the Little boy, after reading the rest of this comment.

          Bryan Pfaffenberger in his book ‘Caste in Tamil Culture’ observes that, the Tamils blame the Sinhalese to cover their own Sins.

          1871 Tamil Tamil riots – at Maviththapuram.
          High cast Tamils attacked low casts (dhoby and barber castes)

          1923 September Tamil Tamil riots – at Sutumalai.
          High cast Tamils attacked Low cast (Paramba) people because Low Casts have no right to employ drummers at a funeral.

          1929 June Tamil Tamil riots – Jaffna
          Because the govt issued an ‘equal seating directive’ to govt grant-aided schools.

          Under this directive ‘low caste’ students were allowed to sit on the bench. Until then they sat either on the floor or outside the classroom. Resultant riots burnt a large number of houses mainly of low caste Tamils. Their children en masse were stopped from attending schools. Repeated petitions were made to the government by ‘high caste’ Vellalars begging to cancel the directive!

          The Vellala Burnt Down FIFTEEN (15) schools that complied with the govt order and other acts of violence and kept their children from attending school.

          1931 Tamil Tamil riots – at Canganai.

          High casts Tamils attacked Low cast Pallars for hiring drummers for a funeral.

          1933 Tamil Tamil riots & Bus strike – Jaffna

          High cast Tamil bus-drivers went on strike in protest against Low cast Tamils attempting to Sit on seats instead of the floor where they sat before.

          A few months later in a caste feud between vellala and non-vellala Catholics, a vellala was killed, and the houses of several Low Cast parayas burnt down, over the issue of a paraya man wearing shoes in church.

          The next day, another feud developed in another village between High Casts and low cast nalavas over the rights of the nalavas to cremate their dead in a vellala cremation place, and a man was shot.

          (from the PhD Thesis of Dr Jane Russell, Communal Politics under the Donoughmore Constitution, 1931 – 1947 available from Thisara Publications, Lanka)

          Up to that point of time there were no Tamil Sinhala riots. The first Tamil Sinhala Riot occurred in 1939 after a Racist hate speech was delivered in Nawalapitiya by Tamil Lawyer Politician and founder All Ceylon Tamil Congress, Mr GG Ponnambalam.

          Here are some significant events

          Nine years after independence,

          Parliament enact a Law to prevent Cast discrimination.
          The Prevention of Social Disabilities Act (#21 of 1957), (PSDA).

          20 years after Independence, In 1968,

          Low cast Tamils (Pallar and Navalar) staged a non violent protest in front of the gates of the Lord Kandasamy (Skanda) Hindu Temple at Maviddapuram demanding that they be allowed to enter the Temple. At that point of time only 17% of Hindu Temples were open to the Low Cast Tamils. They were beaten up by members of an organisation called the “Defenders of Saivism” with Iron Rods and Sand filled Bottles.

          “The Maviddapuram conflict ended as a stalemate. The Minority Tamils withdrew after the Government Agent promised to intercede with the government to strengthen the clauses of the Prevention of Social Disabilities Act.

          After some temple managers were prosecuted, most large temples opened their doors to Untouchables. However, village temples owned by Vellalas maintained their discriminatory practices and throughout the 1970s caste conflicts continued”. (Sri Lanka in the Modern Age by Nira W)

          23 years after Independence, in 1971

          The PSDA was amended to give the Police, powers of prosecution, of PSDA offenders. Earlier the aggrieved party had to sue the aggressor which was beyond the Financial capacity of the destitute Low cast people.

          Until that time, for 14 long years, the PSDA remained a DEAD LETTER in the North, although the TOP Political and Administrative Establishment was completely Tamil.

          Unfortunately all 11 Members of Parliament and all 14 DROs were High Cast Tamils. The GA was some times a High Cast Tamil and sometimes Non Tamil. Yet the SLAVERY Continued.

          30 years after Independence.

          The first Low Cast Tamil Member of Parliament was elected in 1977, TWENTY years after the PSDA was enacted.

          That would have been an IMPOSSIBILITY without the PSDA.
          .
          .
          The Dudley-Chelva pact

          While legislation was being prepared to establish the District Councils, the Low Cast Tamil Organisation, “The All Ceylon Minority Tamils United Front requested the Prime Minister to stay the implementation of the legislation until caste discrimination was eradicated from Jaffna, for this would constitute an instrument to further reduce the rights of Minority Tamils”. (Sri Lanka in the Modern Age by Nira W)

          Due to the opposition of the Low Cast Tamils, the Left Parties and the SLFP, Dudley S the PM, abandoned the bill.

          Now lets see how HUMANITARIAN the presently vociferous Tamils of the North were.

          First here is a brief background of Northern Tamil Society for the benefit of the Non Tamils. I have omitted the details of the Disabilities imposed by the High Casts on the Low Casts.

          Please read Ragunathan (2004: 22-23) who has listed a series of 24 customary prohibitions enforced by the upper caste elite on Panchamars (Low Casts) during the 1950s.

          Or read my comment here. https://www.colombotelegraph.com/index.php/parliamentary-elections-what-should-president-sirisena-do/comment-page-1/#comment-1833629

          Tamil Society in the North was RULED by a small group of Tamil Land owners. Only the High casts (about 40% of the population) was allowed to own land while 60% of the population had to live in designated ghettoes as Slaves of the High cast 40%. Of the High casts less than half had the financial capacity to own land. Those who owned land controlled the employment and lively hoods of the people of the North.

          Here is a FIRST HAND NARATIVE that draws a vivid picture of what life in the North was, for the majority Tamil population.

          Sebastian Rasalingam says “Having come from a depressed caste and grown up in the 1930s in the Jaffna peninsula, I know the vicious character of quasi-slavery, which was maintained purely by violence.

          “These absentee landlords became parliamentarians and blocked any legislation that modernised the North. Universal franchise and women’s rights were opposed, starting from 1929. The building of causeways and roads that would make depressed caste villages accessible were opposed. Upgrading of village Councils and TCs in the North were opposed by these ‘Tamil leaders’. When they realised that Colombo was going to make caste discrimination illegal, they launched separatist politics. Then the Ponnambalams and the Chelvanayagams could “run their affairs themselves,” in the ‘exclusive Tamil homelands of the Eelam’. The political strategy was to whip up Tamil racism, aided by Sinhala Chauvinism”.

          .
          Here Mr Rasalingam compares his experiences amongst the Sinhalese with his experience amongst his own people in the North

          “When I moved to Hatton and later to Colombo, I found a very different world. It was a transforming experience for me and my wife to find that our workmates, mostly Sinhalese would actually sit with us and share a cup of tea. We found that we could go to night school and study without being threatened, beaten up, or go and borrow books, and do things that would bring swift retribution ‘back in the North’; our dwellings would have been torched and our women raped with impunity”

        Thiru, Your sympathies must be in general and not confined to Tamils.
        LTTE cadres killed thousand of ordinary people going out and about for their daily livelihood. Muslims were slaughtered in their places of worship. People who suffered due to LTTE atrocities are still living a life of misery having lost their near and dear ones as well as their meagre assets. If LTTE did not start their terrorism none of these would have happened. Worst still was that INDIAN backing boosted the LTTE to such a level that the LTTE turned out to be threat to their parent (INDIA)

        NO country tolerates terrorism and Sri Lanka is no exception. Sinhala terrorism initiated by JVP who were on a path of murder and mayhem was dealt a severe blow by the state machinery where thousands of terrorists were killed. Terrorism is a form of political cancer created by agitated youth who see only one side, their side. In the Sinhala JVP it was an agitated group of youth led by Rohana Wijeweera and in the Tamils it was a wanted spoilt brat by the name of Prabhakaran. It is always the innocents who pay the price.

        Terrorism cannot be tolerated in a just society and so is racism.

      “He was trembling no doubt.”

      I believe he was bottling up his natural rage and inability to contain the “inquisitors”. Probably he was trying to control his wagging Nazi fingers.

      “Why is this bugger so frightened if he had done no wrong and no harm?”

      Is there anything that he had done right?

      “What about white vans and the killings?”

      And war crimes and crime against humanity?

      That is the difference between a HERO, Sarah Fonseka and a COWARD, Gotabaya Rajapaksa.

      When Nathan Hale, American Patriot was caught by the British, and just before he was ececuted, asked to say a few words before his execution, and supposed to have said, “I only regret that I have but one life to lose for my country.”

      “The first part of the questioning, which went on for a total of six hours, was on the procurement of MiG-27 fighter jets for the Sri Lanka Air Force (SLAF). A nervous Rajapaksa, his hands shivering, said the purchases were done in a proper way. When subjected to deeper questioning he said the person responsible for all those matters was Air Marshal Roshan Gunatileke, who was the Air Force Commander at that time.”

      “A nervous Rajapaksa, his hands shivering, said the purchases were done in a proper way”

      Indeed, Gotabaya Rajapaksa has done is proper way. He ordered the killing of Lsantha Wickramatunga.

    The FCID was brave enough to summon Gotabaya
    to their office. They are not like the servile CID
    who went to his house to record a statement.

    There is no doubt if the FCID is allowed to do their
    job, this former Defence Secretary who says he is lily
    white and a pure padre free from corrutpion will have
    no place in Sri Lanka to stay. The shark lover who has
    given up his US citizenship will have to jump into

        Dear Native,

        I have no idea what you are on about.

        But I remember Parangiya , thanks to your mate Poorten.

        Any way your Ranil mate, is not worried about the problems facing our Kossas in the North, 4 of whom got bashed by the TNA citizens in Jaffna.

        That was for catching the Rapists and bringing them to court.

        Just imagine if even one Sinhalese was among the Rapists.

        Ranil and his mates have been with the LTTE all the way.

        Ranil is the only Govt leader who has singed a agreement with Prabakaran

        Solly wasn’t a leader … Right.

        Next time when the TNA citizens send a few Kossas in body bags , Ranil supporters in Cinnanmon and Wellala Gardens might appreciate Gota’s work to keep peace and harmony in Colombo since Nanthikadal in particular .

        And allowed the Elite to go to CR & FC , Otters and Bellagio and have fun, while their youngsters danced the night away at Rythum & Blues with Dr Mervyn’s son.

        Perhaps you should write a poem about it.

      Dear Native,

      Any Sinhala Buddhist with a conscience will not vote for your mates Rani, Ravi and Samare.

      You know why… don’t you.

      While Sira was trying to bullshit the Ranaviru Mums, Dads and Kiddies in the South , his Diaspora mates and the Vellalas were holding vigils from Mulivaikal to Mannar.

      And hoisting not only the Tiger Flag but also Black flags.

      And guess who denies the pro LTTE activities , It is none other than Ranil’s Nephew who is supposed to be the Defence Secretary.

      Ranil knows that the only way to stop Rajapaksa winning is to put them behind bars.

      They will win even from there, because there are over 6 Million Sinhala People who haven’t forgotten how Ranil and his mates sucked up to Prabakaran and his Mentors big time.

      But my worry is whether Ranil will do a Athuruguriya on Rajapaksas.

      As I understand there are a few Gammanpilas in the Police who will set up a hit at short notice,

      There are 11.000 LTTEers with full weapons training who are now totally under the Vellala Elite from Colombo Seven.

      Is the stone throwing at the High Court and attacking the Cops a precursor to the main game ?..

      And it will be a win win situation for the Elite and the Vellalas when Cameron,Harper and Modhi do the reconciliation for Bodhi Sira..

          You write a whole heap of BS and your usual response to a challenge is an attempt at intimidation and ridicule.

          You get by with that with weak opponents.

          On the 18th May you produced a quote from JRJ and attributed it to the Daily Telegraph, UK. When I could not find any reference to the quote at the DT UK, I wrote the following

          “I hope some reader of CT can provide an authoritative ORIGINAL reference (a Google search brings up tons of results but no original)”

          I also gave details of my searches within the Daily Telegraph website to allow others to repeat it.

          The wiki had the same quote attributed to JRJ.

          The Wiki article which contains this JRJ quote uses the following reference.

          “Lies and Deceptions! Comical Alis of Sri Lanka”. Telegraph UK. 20 April 2009. Retrieved 20 May 2009.

          The link there directs to an Article written by Richard Dixon.

          This Wiki article has been SPECIFICALLY Disowned by the Telegraph.

          Richard Dixon is not listed by the Telegraph, either as a staff member or as a contributor (again I provided details of my searches)

          I gave all these details in my comment.

          You responded with sarcasm providing a Link to the Nation newspaper, intending to stifle any further challenge.

          When I checked out the link given, it turned out to be junk.

          The article there was written by a KKS Perera and did not even have the purported DT UK reporter’s name.

          I pointed this out to you in my comment of May 21, 2015 at 3:23 am

          So far there is no response from you.

          Obviously you were propagating hearsay that you could not Authenticate.

    I suggest that RW clearly knows that he can not become the next PM after the next parliamentary elections if Mahinda and Gotabaya are going to contest. Therefore, in order to secure and pave the path for his future PM post, he is trying to put Gotabaya in the jail.

    If RW is a true democratic person, he should not create any kind of barriers to Gotabaya on his way to next parliamentary elections.

    I also want to mention that Gotabaya is the only man who did some work like “Wiswakarma” in his capacity as the Secretary of Ministry of Defense.

      Don’t worry about RW being a “true democratic person” or not , RW & MY3 must follow the rules , at least we the 6.2 Million people demanding justice to be served on the whole Mafia family , nothing less would do , we want to see the whole Mafia family behind bars for the rest of their lives , Gota being the super hero , he must act like one ! Shiranthi ,Yoshitha and Namal’s cases are being finalized ,hence before long Troika would be confined to their rightful places , as for pseudo rocket scientist Rohitha , he can relax for the time being ! question remains at large as to who that mystery investor was , one wonders who would invest two hundred odd million dollars in Rohitha ‘s pet space project ?

      Even though FM S. Fonseka was innocent on all the trump up charges , he still led his way to walikada prison like a real soldier , he served his time within the prison walls despite hi life threatening illness , for us he is a true hero !

    Because MR appointed this psychopath for that post, how many innocent people Tamils & Singhalese he killed or did what ever he liked. Please Singhalese, without just denying everything, watch those videos taken by army and sold to Tamils – very sad. More sad thing is why they killed surrendered people after the war ended because a hooded man could be Tamil or Muslim nodded his head. This man should not die quickly he has to enjoy all the torture he has tested on innocent Tamils. To unite the country and to save from dividing in far future , now more and more Singhalese have to come forward to compensate affected people politically and financially. All the blood drained in Mullivaikal should not go in vain.

      All your ABOVE words apply to you in the same manner 6 years ago and beyond, if you have lived in the North and not in India like a coward.

      You all lived like shivering rats inside burrows in the North for 30 years for fear of your Sun God, Prabhakaran, the most ruthless, brutal terrorist in the world.

      Your children didn’t go to school. They were slaved child soldiers forcibly snatched from your cradle by your Sun God, Prabhakaran. You were even scared of your own children who worshipped their cyanide hanging in their necks.

      Your teens were suicide bombers worked for the Sun God, Prabhakaran. You saw them only one time after they were taken by force, that is the day they meant to kill others and themselves together.

      Your Sun God, Prabhakaran kept you all under his siege by sheer force, instilling fear, for good 30 long years. You couldn’t work. You couldn’t do farming. You couldn’t sleep. You couldn’t leave your house. You didn’t even have the freedom to see the sunlight.

      You all lived on government assistance, food, shelter, medicine, etc. Most of these essentials were either grabbed or stolen by your Sun God, Prabhakaran and his barbaric cadre, before they reached you.

      The valiant Sinhalese Gotabhaya Rajapaksa, who almost lost his own life to a LTTE bomb, used all his might along with his patriotic security forces to rescue you all from YOUR OWN barbarian Sun God, Prabhakaran, who was after nothing but hot blood and pieces of flesh and limbs.

      Today, you all are enjoying precious peace and protection from any barbarian terrorist, as a result of the noble contributions made by Sinhalese Gotabhaya Rajapaksa and the esteemed sacrifices made by our security forces.

      Watch out and guard your churlish tongue Cholan, there are all the signs of your Sun God, Prabhakaran’s remnants are coming out from their hiding.

      You must remember that You DON’T HAVE any gallant, lion-hearted people Like Gotabhaya Rajapaksa in your Tamil Community, to rescue or protect you from brutal terrorists who are on their way!!!

      You know what, PRESIDENT ‘Maithree’, I CURSE you 1000 times a day for making these jackass cowards insulting Mr. Gotabhaya Rajapaksa in this contemptible manner. You, PRESIDENT, you should rot in hell alive, for the unbearable pain you give all of us, Sinhalese.

        DOGGABAYA liberated Tamils from LTTE….??

        You can sell this story to Podi Menike and Punchi Banda who only read Sinhala Press…

        Just wait till September..they will release the UN REPORT on internet and you know what happend in Nadikadal during May 2009.

        For your information most first hand informations were provided by Sinhala Army Soldiers and Majors with photos and videos UN investigators …

        Are these Sinhala people also ungrateful ???

        Why they exposed DOGGABAYA to world body ???

        Next stop for MURDERPAKSE AND DOGGABAYA is ICC at The Hague ..from their to prison to give company to Charles Taylor ex-President of Liberia and soon Basheer the current President of Sudan will join them ..

          UN Report, no problem. How could you be so sure of the contents, even months before it is published? Did they consult you to get your version of the war? Don’t you know that, for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.

          Don’t forget, EVERY ARGUMENT has a COUNTER-ARGUMENT! We have experts.

          Tamils didn’t stand up for terrorists, they subdued. We lion-hearted Sinhalese, confronted, challenged and defeated terrorism.

          We Sinhalese are not cowards like you. There is no match for our courage in this universe. Collectively, we all will come as one single force. You don’t know us.

          Gotabhaya Rajapaksa is a true legend. Our history is adorned by many heroes.

          When the right time comes, we come forward to protect all our heroes, Mahinda Rajapaksa, Gotabhaya Rajapaksa, Sarath Fonseka and all our valiant security forces who led a humanitarian operation IN GOOD FAITH, with risks to their own lives, to protect this country from the barbarian Terrorist Prabhakaran and the terror he unleashed for 30 years, in order to give a peaceful and happy life to every citizen of Sri Lanka, irrespective of their race, religion or creed.

          This world is not run by terrorists, their remnants or their sympathizers, Cholan. Billions of people stand up against terrorism and stand up for their Right to Life.

          Re: information provided by soldiers. Every information can be challenged for its veracity and source. Any information sold for money, loses its credibility, at the very moment and therefore cannot stand as proof.

          UN is an impartial world body, Cholan. It doesn’t run by one person. I feel sorry for you, for your passionate attempt in equalizing this impartial body with LTTE Jungle Courts.

          For your last para, my answer is a sweet smile cos’ I feel really good.

            Why these Lion couldn’t face LTTE alone ?????

            Why Lion got the help of 36 countries and banned chemical weapon supplied by poverty India to temporarily silence them?

            The whole world watched SL over 30 years..

            TRUTH IS SINHALA ARMY HAS NO BRAIN OR MUSCLE TO FACE LTTE ALONE…..

            Sorry next time no country will come for your aide because now they know the real face of Sinhalesae governments…

            Tell your dearest DOGGABAYA to walk alone in a 100% Sinhala area today …he will wet his pants ..hsi own people are waiting for him remember this

              The simple answer everybody know, you don’t know is that, LTTE was a guerilla movement while we are a legitimate government Army.

              “The whole world watched SL over 30 years”

              NO, they didn’t. Sri Lanka came into their map, only at the LAST PART of the LAST PHASE of the war against terrorists. That is why they are bias. That is why they try to whitewash terrorists. That is why you all could TEMPORARILY managed to mislead them. That is why your false propaganda TEMPORARILY succeeded, which will soon be countered by us.

              “Sorry next time no country will come for your aide…..”

              There is NO ‘Next Time’, my friend! NO MORE chances for terrorism! Fully assured!

              That pledge was WRITTEN IN BLOOD by 26,000 of our fallen security forces’ war heroes and 24,000 valiant soldiers who oblated their eyes, legs and limbs for this noble task !!!

                Cholan has a way of running with the goal posts. He cannot keep his focus and forgets what he originally challenged with the passage of time (when he is losing).

                You are a good writer but don’t let your personal feelings cloud your ability to make rational judgments.

                Expose the Separatist propaganda by writing the truth and if possible back up what you say with good references. That will reach the uninformed THINKING reader and help them to reach a judgment on their own. You will be attacked by the Separatist propagandists as that puts a spanner in their propaganda machine.

                CT was also dominated by a group of “intellectuals” who had their own way before and find a newcomer with different views a threat to their former dominance.

                Don’t worry about any of them and keep on writing.

                  The way you are dancing for the fake..artificial ..borrowed victory with the help of 36 countries specially using banned chemical weapons suppled by poverty India is really disgrace….

                  No power in the history of this world suppressed the freedom struggle of people …do you think your cardboard patriotic leaders can do this by guns and threat …for how long???

                  It is your great grand father..father..cousins..uncles by their savagery act against Tamils from 1956 to 1983 created LTTE…..they never jumped from the sky suddenly …

                  If you think you can rule Tamils by force and gun you are badly mistaken…….recent attack by so called 100 Sinhala students at Eastern Campus on a Tamil staff…just for playing Tamil National Anthem is a good example of the mentality of present Sinhala Generation….

                  This is the last chance for Sinhalese ……the Malayalies from Kerala ..

                  We want answers for the tears of our mothers ..sisters and wives ….

                  Tear is powerful than weapon

                  MURDERPAKSE AND DOGGBAYA PLUS THEIR GENERALS should end up in the jail for their Crime and rot till their last day..

                  The negative comments about this MURDERPAKSE & Co., by the Sinhala bloggers is a good example how they hate these thugs …..

                  Mahavamsa Laws are not acceptable by ICC…..

                    Dear Cholan,

                    Re “We want answers for the tears of our mothers ..sisters and wives ….”

                    Then you should begin by delivering JUSTICE to the 200,000+ parents and perhaps another 400,000 brothers and sisters whose children / brothers / sisters were used as cannon fodder by your LTTE.

                    The Criminal is at your hands reach yet you have done nothing, proves that you are not genuine and is shedding Crocodile tears.

                    Campaign against Adele Balasingham and show how genuine you are.

                    If you cannot do that you are just an opportunistic, separatist propagandist, trying to market the sorrow of others for your selfish greedy purposes of power.

                    BTW where were you while the children of the North were used as a cat’s paw? Having a beer in a London Pub?

                    Re “The way you are dancing for the fake.. artificial ..borrowed victory with the help of 36 countries specially using banned chemical weapons suppled by poverty India is really disgrace….”

                    Poor soul, you have forgotten 3 June 1987.

                    Without India’s help the LTTE would have been History in 1987.
                    Without India’s RAW the LTTE would have been History long before that.

                    You see Cholan, as far as History goes, you are an ignoramus.

                    As I told Champa you will start running with the goal posts which is what you have done so far.

                      But first we want the answer for the butchering..rape of 300,000 Tamils ..now this is in the hand of international community no way to escape except committing suicide

                      Even without the help of poverty India or her RAW …TAMILS could have organized a challenge to Sinhala state who have massacred Tamils since 1956 …no LTTE then..ever know the number of Tamils butchered by your Grand father..father..uncle..cousins from 1956 to 1983 while your Sinhal forces looked other side

                      Shame on you still ready to celebrate a fake..borrowed ..victory with the help of 36 countries and using banned chemical weapons supplied by poverty India …

                      You all have Malayali blood not imaginative Sinhala blood ..all you came from To day Kerala once Tamil Sera kingdom…

                      Not only Europeans but also your current favorite Uncle SAM have warned many times …if you try to rule Tamils by force and guns there will be more LTTE s in future ..

I am ruthless sometimes, but I wanted them to remember the agony they went through when terrorism existed in this country.

                  You are absolutely right. At the right side forum, my character was assassinated left right and centre at one point. They couldn’t come up with a solid counter argument, that is why. They call themselves ‘intellectuals’. They thought I will run away. As I knew their motives, I didn’t back down.

                  We should thank CT for the opportunity given to us.

        UNP , Diaspora, Anglicans and the Vellalas going after the good Sinhala People who eliminated Prabakaran and his Terrorist Machine is understandable.

        Because they put in 30 years of hard work to keep the LTTE in the North and the East.

          Africa and Arabs countries are the biggest buyers of arms today……

Now that he is without power, and have no backing of his criminal family, he is reduced to a coward throwing his golayas under the bus to save his neck. These crooks should be investigated and if found guilty must face the stiffest sentence making sure all that they have taken from the Sri Lankan people, be paid back.
    He was behind many serious crimes, set the BBS to cause fear among people, and suspected of being behind kidnappings and murders, and should be held responsible for these crimes after facing a a court of law.

    Gotabaya sent hundreds of citizens to confinement in army camps/prisons for three months at a time and renewed same at three month intervals, without producing them before courts, under the PTA.

    This is the worst crime he did.

    Hundreds are still in confinement, with their ‘three months’ being extended automatically, by his successor.

    Only a few like Jeyakumari Balendran complained in courts – she had to be released on bail – and, the trial is indefinitely postponed as the trumped up evidence will not stand judicial scrutiny.

    The Sirisena regime allows the PTA to exist in spite of appeal by many human rights activists and organisations.

      It would be better to not shout with caps. Just because they ended terrorism, does not mean they should get away with crimes against the people and country. It does not give them the right to steal billions of dollars, misuse public property, and abuse their powers. They should be investigated for the thousands of citizens missing up North and other places, and questioned about the corruption they seem to be involved in. That is a real democracy, and ending terrorism does not mean you take the opportunity to do what the hell you like, or behave like tyrants. Their supporters should stop justifying their crimes and pretend it is okay.
      It is not.

    CountryFirst,
    I advise you to learn some basic human phycology to understand who is LTTE and how they formed, who is responsible for their creation from a peaceful community.I still remember how Gotha shouted in hysteria during BBC interview. CountryFirst (good nickname) even to write some comments you have to hide behind a nick name – what a shame. How are you going to rebuild the country hope you are from a useless old generation. Younger generation is more intelligent, please leave it to them. When British left Ceylon it was a beautiful country but now ruined. We need new set of educated politicians to our country – what uneducated, corrupted lots done so far is enough. Why some idiots still think to bring back fools like MR, try some good new person and get rid of all corrupted lots.

      Suggest you learn the proper use of the English language.

        Phycology is a study of algae. Mycology is the study of Fungi.

        Pardon me. Your slip is showing.

    People within the Army have told me how Gota is a coward. He used his bother’s position in government to get him transferred out of operational areas with facing the LTTE in battle. He is at his arrogant best only when he has power.

    These thick skinned rotters should be sent to jail. Was is it not Gota who told the BBC that he will hang Field Marshall SF. If he was the bold man he claims to be he should then say he will hang the FCID investigators.

    Gota is being accused of robbing billions of Rs. of Sri Lankan’s hard earned money.

    He is answerable to 20 million Sri Lankans.

    When most Sri Lankans are struggling to make a decent living and paying taxes in one form or another, these modern day politicians in suit and tie are robbing the taxpayers as if they are inheritance from their parents.

    Shame on them.

    From what you say, Gota story on CT is not fact but
    fiction.

    1. He did not go to the FCID and make a statement.

    2. Therefore, he was not trembling and mumbling.

    3. Therefore he did not ask his security men to
    reverse his vehicle into the FCID building to make
    a quick getaway. You don’t believe that is why TV
    did not have footage or print media photographs.

    4. He was such a brave warrior, he went admonished all
    at FCID for having the cheek and the gumption to
    question him. What a cardboard sando he is.

      Kamari,

      You can ignore the likes of Champagne as she seems to beyond redemption. She is a newbie here and her comments just indicate one thing. She is idol-worshipping The clan that plundered the nation and robbed the poor people of their right to a decent life and education.

      In fact some of us here are enjoying by reading the comments more than the articles:)

    Gota has lost his credibility beyond salvation with his double games played in the past at the expense of country’s economy. He will have to be interrogated deep into the bottom of maters to unearth facts. Let’s hope that FCID with the assistance of other Governments will have the ability to achieve their goals with regard to all corrupt deals Gota and his family were up to.
