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

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.

    Anura Kumara Dissanayake, Another one for you to look into is this Sheraton Hotel Colombo at Kollupitiya Colombo 03. One Thirukumar Nadesan who was recently arrested is involved in this project too and this is the Rajapaksas black/stolen money at work right under our noses while this whole drama is going on!! Tell me when are you going to do to expose this!? It seems the public knows more about the stolen money and shady investments that the government, police, CID, FCID!! Disgraceful call INTERPOL and a bunch of international judges to give you a hand if the task is too hard for you lot…

      The public should totally boycott patronizing these hotels, restaurants, businesses shops etc. which are owned by the Rajapakses. I am sure the public does not want to make them richer. Visiting the Hilton hotels and spending your money there is going to make Paris Hilton richer:).

      There are only a select few Rajapaksa corruption cases carefully selected to parade in front of the public by Anura Kumara Dissanayake and other politicians. I would be suppressed if he actually looks into this Sheraton hotel you are bringing up.

      Wait is an election around the corner!?

      Tirukumar Nadesan is Nirupama Rajapakse’s husband. Nirupama is late George Rajapakse’s daughter and is a niece of Mahinda R. George’s father and Mahinda’s father were brothers. George and Laxman were the more socially refined branch with English speaking westernized families. George married Lalitha De Silva who was very rich and their property is Flower Lounge on Ernest De Silva mawatha formerly known as Flower Road. George did not have any wealth so he got it from marriage to Lalitha

    “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’

    Fraudsters: Mahinda Rajapaksa, Rajapaksa Family and their cronies

    Protectors: Traitor “president” Gon Sirisena Gamarala, “Defense” Minister Rajapaksa and some of their Cronies.

    They were all bribed and paid by the stolen billions by the Rajapaksa Crooks from Medamulana.

      Amarasiri, when you say “Gon Sirisena Gamarala”, do you know that you are offending 3 sections of people in our society?

      1) The Gamaralas, an indispensable part of our rural farming community, the real back bone of our country and the guys who bring rice to your table.

      2) The Gonas, the voting cattle who eat rice produced by the Gamralas.

      3) People like us who are fans of our President.

      Anyway you should not insult the leader of our country because you are a Paradeshi and have no right to do so.

        “Amarasiri, when you say “Gon Sirisena Gamarala”, do you know that you are offending 3 sections of people in our society?”

        1. Gamarala, yes. But qualified with a Gon or Gona,

        What does Gon mean?
        a) A Gona, A stupid person, a bull, a cow, a buruwa, a donkey
        b) Gon or Gona means a hooker, a whore in colloquial Sinhala.

        a Whole sells her body and character to the bidder.

        Gon Gamarala is doing the same. Selling his character his prestige to the Rajapaksa for consideration, Santhosams, and protecting the crooks and killers by interfering with the independent commissions the judiciary.

        2. ” The Gonas, the voting cattle who eat rice produced by the Gamralas.”

        This Gon Sirisena Gamarala has eaten the votes of the people, and now eating the stolen funds and grass from Rajapaksa an his cronies.

        3. ” People like us who are fans of our President”

        It was all tight before the President turned out to be a turncoat*, traitor** and Gon Gamarala. Gon Sirisena Gamarala has earned that Title now.

        *Turncoat: a person who deserts one party or cause in order to join an opposing one.

        **Traitor: a person who betrays a friend, country, principle, etc.

          Amarasiri, you have answered most of my points, especially the one about Gonas and whores. Sorry, I am not an expert on whores and that is why I made that mistake. There is another meaning for Gona – Stag. As someone with Veddah like genes, you should know that.

          I wish you had responded to my last point too, which happens to be the most important, because it has ramifications that go beyond you, me and the President, namely the sovereignty of our country.

          What right do you (a paraya) have to insult our President, who has been elected democratically with a substantial majority. The voters may be Gon, gonas, kalaveddahs and whores. But they are all legitimate citizens of this great country, Sri Lanka, and he won because the majority voted for him.

          It is not our fault that your hero, and our villain, MR, lost. The idiot brought it on himself. He paid money got screwed in the (you know what). Unfortunately I cannot come out with the Sinhala version of this, which is so much more colorful, because CT has certain standards of decency, which certain kalaveddahs seem to be pushing.

          Look, when a cricket team declares an inning they do that because they think that have a good chance of winning the match. If it turns out that they were mistaken and loose finally, as happened in this case, do they go around visiting temples, offering mal vattis, sailing on your feet (pada yathra) and generally making assesof themselves in the eyes of the whole world, asking for a rematch? No you don’t. Not if you they are decent persons and good sportsmen.

          So let your boss MR relax with his Gonas and not use foreign agents like you to do his dirty work for him. Go and tell him that the match is over and he has been disqualified for life from any more matches even at village level, OK?

            Dear EDWIN RODRIGO,

            “It is not our fault that your hero, and our villain, MR, lost. The idiot brought it on himself. “

            You are sadly, mistaken and in error.

            Lets call a spade a spade, and a Gona a Gona or Gon.

            MR, MaRa or Mahinda Rajapaksa is Not Amarasiri’s or the the Aethho’s hero. MR or MaRa is

            MaRa MaRa ChaTu MaRa
            MaRa MaRa AmaNa MaRa
            MaRa MaRa HoRa MaRa
            MaRa MaRa DhishNa MaRa

            Just listen to Anura Jumara Dissanayaka’s Speech.

            He, MaRa, is a Para, Paradeshi. Whether he is from India, Bharat or Malays does not matter.

            What MaRa has done is make life difficult for the Paras-Sinhala, Para-Tamils and others Paras including the Veddah Aethhos, and stolen the resources and wealth of the Paras and aswell as carry out a lot of killings.

            The new Para President Sirisena, promised to fix thse problems and bring justice. However, Sirisena turned oyt to be turncoat and traitor, and accepted the stolen loot from MaRa and his cronirs, and was attacking the independent commission amd the judiciary.

            So, Sirisena earned the Title Traitor, and Gon Sirisena Gamrala. Gon here is a shorten form for Gona, and covers both meanings below.

            What does Gon mean?

            a) A Gona, A stupid person, a bull, a cow, a buruwa, a donkey
            b) Gon or Gona means a hooker, a whore in colloquial Sinhala.

              Dear Anarasiri,

              Sorry I missed your oft repeated

              MaRa MaRa ChaTu MaRa
              MaRa MaRa AmaNa MaRa
              MaRa MaRa HoRa MaRa
              MaRa MaRa DhishNa MaRa

              May I add one more line?

              MaRa MaRa Siri MaRa

              Siri MaRa becomes MaRa Siri. Add the “lopped” A and Abracadabra – Peanut Butter Sandwich!, we get none other than Great Amarasiri himself in his true form, which as we suspected is just an Avatar of MR.

              Your holy script has been decrypted by the modern Jean-François Champollion, namely, Edwin.

                You will know the thief, the pumpkin thief, from his shoulder.

                It is not difficult to figure out the crooks and criminals , Mahinda Rajapaksa and his cronies those who protect them, turncoat, traitor, Gon sirisena Gamarala.

                They are called Gonas, whores.

                Listen to Anura Kumara Dissanayaka’s speech ans disclosures.

                  Whoa! Whoa! Buddy. It is not nice to refer to those women in that way. Let us call them prostitutes. It is so much better than Gona or whore. No need to insult them. Most of them do it because they have to support families and have no other option. They need sympathy and understanding than insults.

                  As you are a Buddhist, it is good to consider the Buddhist way of looking at it. Buddhism does not support prostitution. But at the same time Buddhists do not look down upon prostitutes. The Buddhist chronicles speak of a prostitute called Ambapali who gave up her profession, became a good disciple of Buddha and finally attained arhathood.

                  Have Metta on them like our President Sirisena. Remember how he pardoned the suicide cadre who targeted him? How many leaders can boast about that kind of act?

                  It is perhaps Metta that makes him dilly dally in this case too. After all murder + suicide that the Tiger cadre was trying to commit are much worse crimes than stealing. Perhaps MS, as a good Buddhist, feels that Arjuna Mahendran, like Ambapali, will attain arhathood if he is pardoned.

      Jim not so softly,

      Are you sure that Ravi K got his case delayed till MR was ousted or that MR could not fix Ravi K because Ravi K has a letter by the former Gov. Central Bank as everything was done with the full knowledge of CB. Catch MR not fixing Ravi K if he had a chance in a million during his 10 year rule. It is MR who dragged the case as he could not get Ravi K convicted. Please do not try to distort facts here..

    Would he now investigate into Basil’s ownership of businesses ranging from tiles manufacturing to hospitality industry, through various forms of direct or/and indirect control?

      Stolen from a poor tax-payers? Yes. But, they feel no shame. They know they will not properly punished. They are being protected well.

      Above all, a large portion of the dumb Sri Lankan electorate gets an orgasm, just at the very thought of having thieves from Hambantota back on the saddle.

    They have much more than we all realize. They have laundered so much of money, through their no good agents abroad, we will never, ever find out just how much, and where it is stashed. The fact that these crimes cannot be proved, does not mean they are not true – they are very devious, and would have made sure they did not leave a trail. It is disgusting that the present regime either is incompetent and cannot prove anything, or that they are protecting these criminals. The family of Horapaksas.

    Ranil and Sirisena are more concerned about being in power for the next four years rather than doing what is right for the country. Therefore they will continue to protect the fraudsters and murderers as well as turn a blind eye to the current fraudsters. Their promises to the public who faithfully voted for them in complete trust, is cast in the northern wind.
    I can’t understand what has happened to the few in the cabinet whom we considered clean and more reliable, Ajit Perera, senasinghe, Harsha de silva, Eran wickramaratne and Ramanayake. Even they have become defenders of the rogues.

    From 1980 onwards the country has seen an increasing wave of looting public funds, some boldly, some by deceitful means like development, and by fictitious tenders and unsolicited bids. The current government has first to create new wealth and also settle old debts and then they will start their wave of corruption and we see the signs of a beguining. Then the slaughter will once again take place when the protests get on to the streets with a vehemence, they will order the police and forces to clear the streets of anti-government and traitors, and naturally there will be political patronage for a price.

    COMMENT
    What the JVP leader claims is nothing new. We have heard it before. The questions he has posed are also questions the general public is asking. How is that only some members of Rajapaksa family are charged and not others like Mahinda and his wife. Is the government afraid of them or the government is deliberately shielding them from the long arm of the law. Not surprisingly the courts are also not in a hurry to hear the cases. when a case is postponed not only the accused person(s) everybody else also stands to gain. The lawyers enrich themselves by postponement. They have another day to bill the clients. The judges gain by postponement of cases to stay in office after they have reached their retirement age.
    Under Mahinda Rajapaksa’s dispensation the judges were falling over each other to send his critics to jail. for writing something not much different from what many others have written over the years,
    J.S.Tissanayagam was the editor of North-Eastern Monthly magazine that was published on and off. In March 2008 He had gone to the Police to inquire about two colleagues who had been arrested the day before. He was promptly arrested and detained by the Police. It took five months to indict him and he was charged under the PTA with (a) bringing the government into disrepute, (b) inciting ethnic and communal animosities, and (c) receiving funds from terrorist organisations. All these charges were based on two articles he had written in 2006 in the North-East Herald. The PTA had in fact been suspended following the ceasefire agreement between the government and the Tamil Tigers in February 2002.

    Not many people seem aware of what he wrote. The relevant passages from two articles which expressed critical opinions about the government’s treatment of Tamil civilians affected by armed conflict were as follows: A July 2006 editorial headlined, ‘Providing security to Tamils now will define northeastern politics of the future’ concluded: “It is fairly obvious that the government is not going to offer them any protection. In fact it is the state security forces that are the main perpetrators of the killings.” A second article published in November 2006 addressed the humanitarian situation in the eastern town of Vaharai, where warfare included attacks on civilian areas. It accused the government of starving and endangering civilians to further political and strategic military objectives. It took almost two years and a visit by Tissanayagam for some other purpose for the Police to realise that he needed to be charged for ‘inciting communal disharmony’. Tissanayagam was convicted by High Court judge Deepali Wijesundara on three counts: to 20 years hard labour!
    This is the first time a journalist has been convicted under the PTA Under the notorious PTA Ragupathi Sharma was arrested in connection with the suicide bomb attack on former President Chandrika Bandaranaike Kumaratunga. On 2015 September 30, he was handed a 290 year suspended sentence by Colombo High Court Judge Padmini N. Ranawaka Gunathilaka to be served in 30 years/ He was a Brahmin priest employed by a temple in Colombo.

    I suggest if these judges are still around, cases against Mahinda Rajapaksa and his family members must be sent to them for hearing and sentence!

    Why is no one talking about Gamini Gunaratne, the wheeler

    He is Chairman of Sheraton. He does business from the coffee
    shop of Cinnamon Grand. Even mayors and businessmen come to

    JVP is political party an undisputedly and unpredsedent damages to the democratic politics in Sri lanka since 1965 May.

    The cost of our nation had been pay for the lost of life and property people our country many reasons that for cannot be estimated, but it will assumed cost more than billions of Rupees.
    Please noted keep the notes of (footnote) that also cost of Tax payers Money of poor had been involved of Sri Lankan citizens had been already paid since 1971 to 1990 for the cost JVP politics of anarchism.

    We demand new commission to be an appoint to investigations of damage done to the cost of Democracy and People & property by maintain the name of “Good Governances and rule of Law.” by JVP current leaders/past must be accountability ?

    Hope and wish New set of governances rule want in good faith to reactivity old order of democracy undermined by JVP has to be seek into new one movement .

    By The New UNP -leader of MS, CBK of New Federalist of SLFP and Old UNP leader of Ranil W…@@@!must undertake this task .

    It is amount of CB Scam of UNP-Arjuna Mahadaran cost of CB Bond scam timey big amount is tremendous. Cost of People CB Bond scam is not going pay by MS, CBK and UNP -Ranil W…?

    JVP has no right seek other corruptions by their past misdeeds have not yet re-order by New “Good Governances”.
    Present JVP as past jvp is nothing differences that they work for gain power for UNP allied forces back by USA and UK. They are working for destabilization of Society rules and political chaos in system of democracy .

    We are quite agreed that MR and CBK ruling alliance(1994 to 2015 January 8th) and their political oriented corruptions and grafts has to be examine by ‘Good Governances’ is essential for democratic survival .

    What about UNP-JRJ R.Premalala and Wijatunge bold corruptions has to examined by UNP leader of attain “good governances and rule of law”.

    Ongoing roots of corruptions goes back to 1977 UNP-JRJ rule of misgovern and mismanagement of democratic norms by UNP political ideology of Liberalism. JRJ_UNP-1977 is father of modern corruptions of new era of politics of democracy.

    All these corrugations and graft has no time limit as long as it serve purposed of archived the “Good Governances”.

    The mistake done by UNP leaders is that current COPE committed Chairmen was an appoint of JVP Dr Huandi Hetti is grave political error by Old UNP -leader Ranil W.. is the Christen Democratises.

    JVP is almost Political anarchist and praticiesed of Terrorism since 1965 May. They intentionally that totally undermined principle norms of democracy by misdeeds of line of Terrorism of JVP in 1971 April and 1988/89 to 1990.

    JVP was /is Not a revolutionary organization ,they ever-never represtantive of masses of People of our nation. They are working for few and launch for the sporadic actions against People and undermined state governances from time to time. JVP is country -revolutionary forces and its outfit want restoration old order by New wine bottle.

    The UNP leaders call themselves are “good governances” we have no ides how JVP been part and parcel of “Rule of Law & Good Governances” of current Govt.

    This is political dilemma in the terms of democracy..

    What a clever way of doing things. When there is rotten
    corruption among the ruling clan, he talks about Mahinda
    Rajapaksa properties. True, it should be exposed. But
    what about rogues like Malik Samarawickrema? He will not
    say anything. It is from there that the bucks flow to the

    If what AKD is saying is true, I don’t think any politician would have robbed the country the way the greedy Rajapakse family have done. The worst part is after so much has been exposed of them, no initiative and no effort is being mooted to arraign them and confiscate those lands, and punish those crooked people by sending them to jail. Mind you, and all that stolen wealth after only just two terms in leadership. It probably puts Marcos and Imelda of the Philippines in the shade. We in SL have an entire family caught with their hands in the ‘cookie jar’.

    MAITHRIPALA SIRISENA WAS ELECTED AS THE PRESIDENT OF SRI LANKA AND WAS VOTED BY SRILANKAN VOTERS FROM THE WHOLE COUNTRY, LET THEM BE TAMILS, SINHALESE, MUSLIMS, CHRISTIANS ETC. WHAT YOU HAVE TO CONSIDER IS THAT APART FROM THE VARIOUS DISGRACEFUL MANNER MAHINDA CARRIED OUT HIS CAMPAIGN, ALL THE VISITS AND BRIBES TO GODS IN SRILANKAN TEMPLES, TIRUPATHY, KERALA, VATICAN ETC THE GODS DID NOT FAVOR HIM WITH A WIN THIS TIME. IT IS BECAUSE THE GOD IS ALSO FED UP OF HIS AND HIS FAMILY’S CRIMES COMMITTED AGAINST SRILANKANS IRRESPECTIVE OF RACE OR RELIGION. THIS IS ONLY A START AND MUCH MORE PUNISHMENTS WILL FOLLOW IN DIFFERENT FORMS IN THE PASSAGE OF TIME, I GIVE BELOW SOME OF THE THINGS PREVIOUS REGIME HAS DONE!!
    EG:
    The abominable and despicable manner which the 43rd CJ was impeached.

    Mahinda, Mohan, Basil, Gota, Namal Gross corruption and kickbacks in contracts for mega projects violating accepted tender procedure in many Chinese funded projects.

    Attacks on two TV stations by Government goons where in both cases the perpetrators were identified but no action was taken.

    The rape and murder case against the Tangalle Pradeeshiya Chairman where for two years absolutely no action was taken.

    The humiliating incident where a Samurdhi office was tried to a tree.

    The attacks by the Bodu Bala Sena on Muslims in Aluthgama which received widespread international condemnation.

    Attacks on hundreds of Churches in all parts of the country.

    Involvement of politicians including ministers in drug and ethanol peddling

    In all the above cases not one word was said by the President who just allowed the situation to get out of control and failed to take action against any of the police officers who were involved in these incidents..

    The repercussions of the draconian 18th amendment were listed below.

    The emergence of a completely subservient judiciary with many questionable appointments to the highest courts.

    The deterioration and politicization of the once highly respected public service with the appointment of political stooges

    The virtual collapse of the once highly respected foreign service with the appointment of political stooges and family siblings

    The politicization of the police service where both senior and junior police officers dare not take action through fear of reprisals and punishment transfers.

    This man and his party can not provide any future vision, mission or economic plan for Sri Lanka.

    So he always talks about Rajapkses and Avan Guard. But that is why they (peole) have appointed the new government. So that he and his party needs to look at the performance of the new government.

    He ad his party does not have any economic plan to offer to the people of Sri Lanka. So that JVP current leadership only talks about past things.

    I think that it is time that this man should step down from the JVP leadership. Lalkantha is much better to be the leader of the JVP. This man simply become a spokesperson for the UNP to cover up their in ability to run the present government.

      “He ad his party does not have any economic plan to offer to the people of Sri Lanka.”

      No its not true, they have an economic plan which is outdated and expired its sell by date by about 50 years.

      “”So that JVP current leadership only talks about past things. “

      Not true, they don’t talk about

      1971,

      the period between 1987 and 1990,

      whether they have surrendered all their arms,

      own up their past murders,

      how Somawansa and many of their comrades escaped to India,

      what their position now on the hard working upcountry Tamils who were described being 5th column,

      the time they shared a bed with MR and Sarath Silva and how they perverted the cause of justice,

      war crimes committed by the armed forces and police since 1971,

      Chinese investments in this island,

      By the way he has no new ideas to take the country forward. The voters are not convinced by their pretentions.

      The JVP can remain a campaigning party on the fringes.

    J V P and Its leaders bring abouut facts. The earlier Government or YAHAPALANAYA Government are two sides of the same coin. Its high time that a strong third force emerge and win the next election. Can A K R take the lead otherwise we will be harping on the same for years to come with out results

    Well done Anura. Now the cat is out of the bag, what is the President going to do? Has he got the guts and commitment to handover this info to the courts and file legal action against those mentioned? Will the President appoint a separate court to investigate these or will he continue to protect the accused the same way he is protecting the soldiers who committed human rights violations?

    the only way for the people to hit back is to give the JVP more votes at the LG elections.These are people still unblemished by corruption and should be given a bigger share in the country’s governance.handunetti also did a good job at COPE.

    If AKDs rantings are permitted, why not the ranting of a commentator, 50 so far .- as a reminder to Hon. Ratnayake and Hon. Wijedasa as well, as appointees of GG??

    JVP is good mainly at finding faults with others. When they are given a job they are reluctant to call a spade a spade. Look at the COPE report. Chairman Handunetti was reluctant to document PM Ranil Wickremasinghe’s direct/indirect involvement in the CB Bond issue. At least he should have added a time-line so SL voter can understand what exactly happened during that period.
    Not only that, He allowed UNP’s ‘Footnote clique’ to hijack the report by letting them add what they wanted. Though he had the power and authority exercised by the Speaker of the House he acted like another Rathu Ali Patiya (red baby elephant: a criticism leveled at the JVP leadership).
    If this is the case how can Sri Lankan voters trust the JVP? My understanding is the JVP MPs need more maturity if they ever plan to come to power. In the first place, they should understand certain hidden hands behind Yahapalan crooks and consult a few professionals before they submit crucial reports.
