Anura Kumara Dissanayake Reveals Details Of Properties Worth Millions Owned By Rajapaksas: Full Speech

Filed under: Colombo Telegraph,Featured News,News,STORIES,Video |

JVP Leader Anura Kumara Dissanayake has accused the Yahapalanaya government of protecting the former first family, including Shiranthi Rajapaksa and her sons, despite credible evidence proving that they have wrongfully taken over property and lands from across the country.

Addressing an event held in Colombo titled ‘Fraudsters & Protectors’ Dissanayake said that there is a ring in the government that is protecting the Rajapaksas. “The UNP MPs are coming on television and saying it’s very difficult to find evidence against the wrongdoings of the Rajapaksa family. They are saying the Rajapaksas have hidden their wealth in Dubai and even though they have gone to Dubai, the Dubai government is refusing to disclose information. I am telling them to stop going to Dubai, instead go to Hambantota and Mount Lavinia and see the amount of wealth they have amassed.”

Dissanayake also listed out various lands under the possession of Shiranthi Rajapaksa, her sons Yoshitha and Namal, and her mother Daisy Forrest. He revealed that they, along with Basil Rajapaksa have lands from Gampaha to Mount Lavinia, and Hambantota to Colombo 7. Dissanayake also questioned as to how Basil Rajapaksa owned land worth Rs. 379 million.

“These are only what we know about. What did they do to get so much of property in these past few years. These belong to the people. They are thieves who were defeated at the January 8 Presidential Election,” he said.

The JVP leader also criticized the judiciary system for prolonging various cases against Basil Rajapaksa. “In one of Basil’s cases, the hearing was held last month and it has been put off till next March. Our judges are so busy. So basically, these cases are only taken up twice a year. There is a ring that is protecting these thieves. We have presented the evidence against them, but still no action is being taken,” he added.

    It is true almost half the MPs sold their duty free import permits to third parties and made fortunes. Two to three crores of rupees. JVP says none of their MPs are involved in this racket. May be, but the difference is that they handed of their vehicle permits to the party and the party sold the vehicles just like the other MPs. So whatever the JVP says about corruption must be taken with a pinch of salt.

      Where did he arrive the figure of 379 milliion Rs worth of properties for. Basil.. WE must also take into account that they have buisness projects going on in the USA. Another fact is that Diasy Forrest Shirathis mother has Scottish origins apparently. ANura kuma Dissanayake just jumps the gun when he feels like expecting gullible people to swallow his rubbish lock stock and barrel. Politicians in. SL does not need facts and figures or statistics they only know to scream out useless gossip.

    Rajapakse won a war and betrayed the people. Yahapalanaya won an election and betrayed the people. This is all useless Sri Lankan politics.

      No man, i dont see it in that way. We have to be happy with what we got within the last two years. Had Athigaru been reelected, trade sanctions against the Country would surely have been the case. All White van and the like criminal organisations would have been given more Bloom than anything else No freedom as is the case under Mr Sirisena would have been given to express ourself. Today, you and me and every simple Simon LOUDLY criticise mostly not having eveen Facts on the Hand, was the that case , if Rajaakshes were the leaders of this Country. Journos should reveal all these again and again, then only stupid Folks who are the majority in this lost land would really realize the gravity faced under MAHINDA Jarapakshes.

    The JVPs plan was to install a weakling as the SLFP leader and eat into the SLFP/patriotic voter base. Now that wimal/gammanpila/wasu spoiled the plan they are trying to address the UNP gallery and erode the UNP vote base. JR learnt the JVP lesson the hard way by unleashing then imprisoned wijeweera and the other mass murderers. How will Ranil learn the lesson?

    How economically savvy this JVP Prince is?. I did some computations and here is what I found. Diaspora Mahendran , who was hand picked by JVP Prince’s minder, Batalanada Ranil gave the SIL’s PT, a profit of LKR 5 Billion in just 14 months of Yahapalana Bond Trading. In simpler terms, FIL & SIL and the other partners of PT got paid LKR 5 Lakhs per hour , every hour and every day for the last 14 months even when they were in bed.. In contrast how much did the JVP get for helping Batalanada Ranil to become the Yahapalana PM?. Just lousy LKR 25 Lakhs in total ,for the souls of the poor native youth who perished plus the JVP brand as well.. When I compared that with the hourly rate , JVP Prince got only LKR 250 per hour.. How pathetic. Poor Rohana must be kicking the Coffin, That is if the UNP Yahapalanaya then gave him a decent burial.

      KASmaalam KA Sumanasekera “I did some computations and here is what I found.” Thanks for your effort and sincerity. Can you now compute the total loss to the coffer between 2005 and 2015?

          NAK “Didn’t you know? that has already been done and that’s how Sira came to be the el presidante of the island paradise!” Could you give me the exact amount that the country lost in the 10 years between 2005 and 2015. Thanks By the way do you wish the UNP/SLFP Oligarch steal more than what SLFP/NFF robbed during the clan’s rule?

            Dear Native, Are you serious?.. What match.. LKR 600 Billion borrowed in just 12 months with LKR 5 Billion deposited in PT FT. as santhosam… All for just to pay 2 percent interest for the Southern Highway,Mattala Airport, Hamnatota Harbour,Northern Highway,and Kandy Road . BTW ,Kandy road now is now going to cost extra LKE 12000 Million, after Galleon did the Computations with Kiriella and Mallika. It is more like a match between Ronald Briggs and Saradiel from my home town….

    The accusations have come down from assets in dubai, islands in Maldives and Seychelles to a few perches of lands in Colombo 7 and Borella. That is quite a nose-dive Mr AKD.

    Didn’t this guy went public claiming Namal owns 9 Lamborghini? Right right, feeding on the short memory cycle of Sri Lankan voters.

    `Ranil Wickramsinghe lives exactly how Mahinda Rajapakse lived. Maithripala sirisena established the family trust by the name of Maithriapala something Foundation. So, now his children has a legal account to withdraw ill gotten wealth anytime as long as they live.

    What’s important is proving that the money spent on buying the so called property is misappropriated from public funds. There’s another possibility It might be black money; so charges will have to be different. Thieves are clever; deal in drugs and pretend to be misappropriated public money and vice versa.

    Rajapaksa will use to destroy the country by using this funds to create a force to attack muslims and tamils, when either of them defend themselves these guys will say singhala rata nonsence and start a riot. when a riot starts country will goback to 1983. The yahapalana crowd will loose out to the gnansara thugs for few days, then cashualties will be counted and a genocide would have taken place. then retaliation strikes by muslims and tamils will further escalate the situation. Rajapaksa will come out and say he can be the hero for the buddhist. so he will come back to power after starting the problem. these guys go into astrology a lot, and his bad period would be now, so he is waiting till his good period comes. best outcome- put all thes guys in jail, and throw away the keys. the money he has accumulated is in billions, so he can spend . the police inaction is a grave concern, when all muslims are threatend in front of railway station by a kudu thug, nobody takes action. shows how digressed we have become. They came for the jews, i didnt object, they came for the GIPSYS I DIDNT OBJECT, THEY CAME FOR ME. NOW NOBODY WAS THERE.
