The case has been set for trial for February 2017. In the case, apart from Gunawardana and his son, his wife, Shyamali Priyadarshani Perera is also accused of having a hand in the abduction. She, along with five other suspects were released today on a cash bail of Rs. 50,000 and two sureties worth Rs. 500,000 each by the High Court Judge Padmini Ranawaka.

In July, the Attorney General filed indictments against Gunawardana and seven others in the incident over the abduction and assault of Nipuna Ramanayake. Five police officers of the Colombo Crimes Division were among those indicted apart from Gunawardana, his son and wife. At the time of the incident which occurred in August 2009, Gunawardena was the Director at the Colombo Crimes Division.

    This is a guy sued by Old Royals for his murders. Then think of the status of Lankawe!Totally an Idi-Amin country. No limits.

    In a short while, under this blood thirsty SingaLE police custody, third prisoner is killed. I don’t know how many others I missed in the news. Hanging these guys will not help. It is going make the Bogambara as Augean Stable, un cleanable. The entire police force have to be taken in a cargo ship to a lonely island and let alone there not being able to see any human faces but only themselves.

    The country is in this rotten stage. Now Mangala and Kew King is at UN. Magala knows, at New York, not even 1% would know what is going back at home. He going to read out another one of his Gandhian lecture. He is now beating Kathirgamar, so he is early waiting for his counterpart Condoleezza Rice to come back. New King will be teaching the Buddha’s gospel to the UN.

    When Old King was making his speeches, the UN diplomats leaves the auditorium. Unfortunately Secretary Kerry has changed it. Jam jam week for Mangala for his propaganda. One time(2012) his commission at congress-The Foreign Affairs- released a rosy statement about Old King’s administration, concocted by Sinhala Intellectuals employed by his department.

      When will the justice be carried out, and people can move on.

      When will the hanging take place. They do not belong in this world.

      Mate, Is Suren Surenndran addressing the UN on behalf of Batalanada Ranil?.

      Being a Hybrid of UNP & SLFP we really don’t know whether Mangalan Samrawweran talks for Batalalanda Ranil or his ex Boss’s House boy Bodhi Sira the President?.

      Will the former LTTE High roller take to the podium before or after Mangalana Samaraweeran?.

      On a lighter note, I feel sorry for the Junior and the Mom…

      Don’t disgrace the gallantry of the real and true Ranaviruos we have in our country, by calling this man a Ranaviru. He is nothing but a bloody disgrace to the whole police force. He made his living by contract killing along with his son as accomplice. Being a policeman in high position as respected DIG, a guardian of the law, what did he do? He abused his position, took a large sums of money as contract fee to kill people, one of which was Mohamed Shyam. Disfigured his face and even went to the extent of cutting off his private parts to prevent easy identification as a Muslim. A meticulously planned murder. But an unexpected CCTV footage blew his cover. Worst still, not only him but his entire family feed on blood soaked money that he makes as a side business. What should he deserve? Not death once, to end it instantly, but sentenced to death through a hundred lives, if there is such a thing. And you are suggesting he be considered a Ranaviru. This must be his third or fourth case against him.

      Another thing to understand is that no Judge/s in their capacity to decide if a man should live or die, will ever pass a death sentence, unless s/he/they are convinced beyond any reasonable doubt, that the perpetrator/s of the crime deserve nothing less than capital punishment. It is the same in application of Sharia Law, except that once sentenced is passed, it is carried out in full public view (meant to be effective as a deterrent to prevent or reduce repeats of such crimes). Even the Head of State has very little say to issue stay order. Whereas as in our own legal system, the death sentence is only symbolic. However, it remains that he will remain a condemned man to the end of his life.

      Bullshit. Nobody should be above the law. The country is in a mess because of people like you who have a misguided view & live in perpetual denial.
      Having said that, I can’t believe such a suggestion from an apparently educated person. So is it a cynical comment?

    What is happening to this miserable fellow”s nephew ,Sajin de Vass Gunawardena, the murderer , thug and Rajapaksa pimp from Ambalangoda? What is happening to the heap of cases filed on this uneducated fellow?All gone under the political carpet?The thug must be having a nice time in ,Colombo,Singapore or in Maldives where he owns very high value tourism ventures.It was Sajin who shielded his Uncle in all his crimes and in turn got help from him to commit his own political murders.

    Over one year has gone by and Sajin is free as you and me.What does this suggests about the Attorney Generals Department under Yahapalanaya?

    They had the backing of higher ups, therefore they thought they can get away with murder and kidnapping.
    Taking the law into their own hands, the man who wears our national uniform behaved like a thug.
    Shame on him, his family, and others like him.

    Quran 8:30, ‘But they plan, and Allah plans. And Allah is the best of planners’. So this goon planned and planned to carry out this murder so meticulously, thinking he would never ever be found out. It only took an ‘unplanned and unexpected’ CCTV footage (Allah’s better plan) to reveal the whole truth, and bring this goliath to his knees.

      ” It only took an ‘unplanned and unexpected’ CCTV footage (Allah’s better plan) to reveal the whole truth, and bring this goliath to his knees. “

      Has Allah revealed to you where MR clan is hiding the stolen money?

      Why has god Shiva refused to reveal this information to Taraki?
