Army Butcher Sunil Ratnayake Released Amidst Coronavirus Outbreak

Former staff sergeant of the Army Sunil Ratnayake was released from death row on a special presidential pardon today.

Ratnayake was sentenced to death over murder of of eight Tamil civilians including four children in Mirusuvil, Jaffna on 19th December 2000.

Sunil Ratnayake was sentenced to death on June 25, 2015 after a 13-year-trial.

on 24 Dec. 2000, some bodies were found in the septic tank of a toilet by the side of the army camp. The matter was then reported to the Chavakacheri Courts. When the judge inspected the scene, four youths under the age of 18 were discovered besides four men with decomposed bodies, throats slit and eyes blindfolded. Some had their legs and hands chopped off. One had his skin peeled, looking pink. Among the eight murder victims was five-year-old Visvarayan Prasath. Even the most hard-hearted could not fail to be moved by the sight.

Further to it, an inquiry was held at the Chavakacheri Magistrate’s Court and a report was sent to the Attorney General’s Department. The Attorney General filed action in the Jaffna High Court. A direct and important eye-witness was Ponniah Maheswaran, besides others. Staff Sergeant Ratnayake was given a death sentence. Appeal to the Supreme Court failed.

    Coming colour is no good… now the ground is in making to set free that Kudu Duminda next days.
    :
    if KUDU Duminda would come of the prison, then all other similar convicted criminals should be free.
    .
    That will be the LITMUS TEST TO the presidency of G-O-T-A-B-Y-A. Rajakshe.

      Rajaakshes would ruin it from where stoped it by 2015. Thanks to former GOVT only, they happened to put off the ELECTIONs, but we are not still clear what agendas they would have before them. These BPs should go by affecting them COVID 19. Then only we can see a better srilanka for sure. They have no public friendly principles. Once touched, we dont need to check them again.

    How can he lead the rest of his life after being a murderer ? God will never forgive him may be Gotta forgave him because Gotta belongs to that category. These people who murder and mutilate people and also aid and abet such dastardly acts will be paying a terrible price on this earth. Their siblings, children the entire family is answerable for these criminal acts of one person. If anyone thinks that they have no worries do not be fooled by them they are like a duck calm on the outside but pedaling vigorously under the water because they need to look over their shoulders continuously but the swords of destruction comes from above to make them squirm and suffer

      All what you said in your post equally valid to LTTE terrorist who killed many innocent people including infants by mutilating them or by thrashing them on the floor in front of their parents – the relatives of these people are still living and when Yahapalanaya / UNP release hardcore terrorist who might have taken part in these brutal acts from prison and when individual in Diaspora who supported these acts with funds are treated as buddies by UNP during last few years – how angry these relatives feel – specially when their own Government wants to pacify terrorist and ignore their pains
      Remember the relatives of many who died due to LTTE brutal acts of terror are still living among us and will never forgive these terrorist and their supporters – so do not turn a blind eye to the other side

    Disgraceful President to pardon a convicted murder… This abuse of the Presidential Pardon only shows that Gotabaya Rajapaksa deserves to be tried for war crimes along with his brothers… all politicians public figures and citizens should protest this abuse of the presidential pardon enough is enough… don’t let criminals like this destroy Sri Lanka…

    If you don’t Unite against this you are approving the abuse of the Presidential Pardon…

    In addition to this deplorable act by our president i suspect the Rajapaksas are hiding the true Covid19 numbers by refusing to conduct more tests and putting the public at risk. We all want this to be handled carefully and responsible not downplayed to cook up number and statistics that make the government look good…

      thats my concern as well…very plausible to think that the numbers are cooked up for one and one reason only…political mileage at the next elections! remember this government has nothing left to talk about at the next elections as they are now exposed to be worse than the previous government the bond scam and air lanka deal being two examples! so their only political slogan is going to be that gr saved the country from the crono virus..and of course those who cant think will fall for it. funny enough quite a few are begining to question the governments statistics!! every thing done now has to be seen as done in connection with the elections..

    I am totally against this article.
    Mind your language!
    Sunil Ratnayaka was arrested and detained in 2002 by the Chandrika Bandaranaike government to please the EPDP leader.
    Sunil was detained in remand prison for 13 years without filing any charges as the evidence against him was not convincible.
    In 2015, when the slave government came into power, as a part of their promises to the LTTE diaspora and the TNA, an express court order was delivered making him guilty for a crime he didn’t do. Those who gave fabricated evidence against Sunil were former LTTE cadre.
    From the beginning, Sunil maintained that he was not guilty.
    His case was heard without a jury.
    Sunil served in the prestigious LLRP and fought against LTTE butchers for the country with life. His entire young life was sacrificed for the country.
    I am happy at least finally the President decided to release him, after failing to do so for the last 4 months.
    During our incessant fight against the slave government since 2015, our one very important request was to release Sunil Ratnayake the moment there was a change in the government.
    However, since November 16, 2019 victory, upto 4 months the President didn’t show any interest in releasing him. Instead what the President did was, mobilizing fake patriots to hold press briefings and stage demonstrations on the street to release his friend Duminda.
    Even now Sunil was released only to pave the way to release the other, using the current time of crisis.
    Therefore, Sunil Ratnayake need not to be grateful or thankful to anyone. He was in prison for 18 years since 2002 while LTTE terrorists who were in prison were released with compensation.
    I challenge the President to pay compensation to Sunil Ratnayake, a sum of Rs. 10 million for each year for all 18 years (10Mx18) covering the entire period he was in prison for a crime he did not commit.

      Thank you Champa for the post – the real truth should come out to silence LTTE sympathizers – Hope Gota will take actions to pay Sunil compensation -If the LTTE goons were paid compensation for the crimes they committed Sunil should get compensation immediately for his suffering during last 18 years for something he had no connection

      Champa,
      I know your Buddhist Sinhala blood was boiling when this army commander was sentenced to death. Rajapaksa policy is very lear. No Sinhalese should be punished if they killed innocent Tamils. Unfortunately, for Rajapakse’s a quite sunk of Buddhist Sinhala also enemies and they will not hesitate to murder as they murdered Lasantha and many other Sinhalese.

      Fully endorse what Champa says. In the first place Prez should have released immediatly all ranawiruwos that fought to regain the country from a outfit that was the front for the Europeans and the South Indians who do not have guts to fight for a country for themselves in India.
      We can see who is actually running the country from behind the scene by the harassment given to a Sinhala businessman recently. It was not Viyathmaga or the Corrupt lot headed by the Wilpaththu destroyer that put him on the throne; it was done by the patriotic Sinhalas who could not be bribed. Yes, MR gave that solid backing that was required. Now that he has done his job he should leave gracefully, I believe.

        When things go as wanted, everyone takes credit. Ordinary incidents in the streets should be handled by the police not politicos. Behind every newly constructed government and governance there is an organization, Viyathmaga has been serving as that. They put themselves forth as those who cannot be bribed to say any other thing than what they were. They toured places and talked about their positions to organize a public, so yes, they played a critical part to put him there. It has nothing to do with MR leaving or not as that has no effect on pardons’ timing. This was going on for a time but massive protests were expected, so the time proved to be convenient for his release. Nobody can object now.

      Champa, please do not distort facts in order to misinform the public and readers.The massacre took place on 19th December 2000. The murder case was heard in 2002 before the Trial at Bar with the late Justice Sarath Ambepitiya and two other High court judges. Army sgt. Sunil Ratnayake and other accused were indicted on 17 charges within a year and not 13 years as Champa falsely complains. It took a considerable time because the Defence appealed against an interim order and it took more than three years. Ultimately on 24.06.2015 the Trial at bar court in Colombo consisting of Justices Lalith Jayasuriya, Padman Surasena and Warawewa found the accused Sunil Ratnayake guilty of murder and convicted him to death sentence while discharging the other accused. This accused appealed to the Supreme court and the court consisting of Justices B.P.Aluwihare, Sisira De Abrew, Priyantha Jayawardane, NalinPerera and Murdu Fernando affirmed the judgment and sentence of the High court Trial at bar.

      So this is not a fabricated case as Champa alleges.this was a crime against humanity. The case went from the High Court to Supreme Court the highest court according to the proper legal procedure and all judges who heard the case were from Sinhala community. He was defended by the able criminal lawyer in the calibre of Anil Silva President’s Counsel. Deputy Solicitor General Thusitha Mudalige prosecuted on behalf of the Attorney General. Late Mr. D.W. Abeykoon P.C., late Mr.Desmond Fernando P.C., Chandrapala Kumarage, and K.S.Ratnavale appeared for the families of the victims. It is a shameful act on the part of the President Gotabhaya Rajapaksa, but what else can you expect of a war criminal catapulted to power?This is another slap on the face of the Srilankan judiciary . Only shameless apologists like Champa will support the illegal pardon.

      “Sunil Ratnayaka was arrested and detained in 2002 by the Chandrika Bandaranaike government to please the EPDP leader.”

      It was Ranil lead UNP government which ruled between 2001 and 2004. Chandrika was the president. Dumb ass Champass get your facts right.

      “Sunil was detained in remand prison for 13 years without filing any charges as the evidence against him was not convincible.”

      Using your own flawed selective rambling why does not the butcher president release many Tamils who are being detained/held illegally for more than 15 years in some cases over 25 years?

      ” I challenge the President to pay compensation to Sunil Ratnayake, a sum of Rs. 10 million for each year for all 18 years (10Mx18) covering the entire period he was in prison for a crime he did not commit.”

      Dumbass, you don’t need to challenge the butcher, the compensation follows automatically for the those Sinhala/Buddhists murderers, rapists, crooks, ….. arsonists, …

        Oi Keyboard Vedda
        I wrote this comment from my memory as I have written about Sunil Ratnayake umpteenth times.
        He was arrested when Chandrika Bandaranaike was the President while Anuruddha Ratwatte served as the Deputy Defence Minister.
        I will recheck the year and confirm later.
        I standby what I said. Sunil Ratnayake was arrested under the direct orders of Anuruddha Ratwatte purely to please the EPDP leader who was a Minister in Chandrika’s Cabinet at the time. Rajapaksasa also didn’t release him for the same reason.

    Oh, my God!
    .
    How can we expect our Tamil citizens not to be disgusted, and rightly protest?
    .
    The guy was sentenced to death; we don’t hang any of these animals. But to give him an absolute pardon. That is unthinkable!
    .
    Sirisena pardoned that Jude Jayamaha fellow who brutally murdered that Johansson girl. I have no idea what that Mirusivil massacre was. I want to forget all those horrible things that we Sinhalese did to Tamils. From the account given, it looks as though this death sentence was given after a proper trial. No, I’m not going to read about all that.
    .
    The horrible Kumar R may say that Sinhala_Man doesn’t empathise sufficiently with our Tamil brethren. But how many times must we relive these events?
    .
    Ah, yes. Gota said “not one civilian casualty.” So must I, as a Sinhalese, rejoice at this news. No way! But also, having made this comment, I shall not return here to see whether it has been liked or not. I’ve said what I felt on this subject, and that’s it! Shame, shame, Gota! Will I be told that this fellow has got himself a DSc?
    .

      Dear Mr Sinhala Man,
      .
      I appologize for not having commented on your article lately. I had been really pressed by work and now being obstructed by COVID-19 CRISIS. But as you know I also admire your fearless acts.

      With the pavement being laid, THAT abusive MEDIA owner’s brother to be released, not many would feel fine with GOTA s politics. Gota s is no better to that of STUPID sirisena who made it upside down not being able to foresee it right. :
      .
      I now believe, people in this country are not better to that of TRIBAL countries, when going to compare their common sense. Most yet today would not utter a single word against GOTLER even if his recent TV speech was not at all decent enough to all srilankens. Germany s Dr Merkel in her address thanked to all from top to bottom again and again even if she is now quarantined for few more day.

      Please take good care of you Mr Dear SM, dont go out to COLOMBO or anywhere just because you feel like HOUSE arrest would not be possible anymore Those who are over 70 would have to face it more, since their IMMUNE system is weaker than those of younger.
      The main reason of much higher numbers be reported from Italy yet today is connected with them being older adults …. and Italy s population consists of much higher numbers of elederly people. Tha tis the same in Japan even if they somehow could control their numbers sofar.

      Fellow Thomian,

      You have come to a conclusion without knowing any of the facts associated with the highly politicized incarceration of Sgt. Sunil Rathnayake.

      Ranaviru Sgt. Sunil Rathnayake played a key role in the Long Range Reconnaissance Patrol (LRRP) of the SL army. The LRRP was a dreaded entity as far as the LTTE and the Tamil racists were concerned. They feared their eventual demise might come at the hands of the LRRP. The Sargeant was also nicknamed as Heluwella (naked man) because he took part in some battles completely naked especially if the enemy forces comprised of LTTE’s women’s brigade. He was a fearless soldier.

      As such, during the Norwegian brokered peace farce, a conspiracy orchestrated by the LTTE and aided by the government of the day led by Mr Batalanda (Ra Wick) began to unfold. The sergeant faced criminal charges in a highly politicized case. The government of the day instructed the courts to try the suspects without a jury. How can a government instruct the judiciary? If they do, then it’s clearly political interference. The racist Tamil diaspora also paid huge sums to the state counsel in charge of the case.

      It is good to see the current President has reversed this gross injustice. Bravo Mr President.

        The decision to charge these murderers before the Trial at bar was made by the Attorney General and not by the government. Trial at bar consists of three High Court judges. No jury is involved in this legal process. This is the law as it stands now. If you want to change it, you may bring an amendment in Parliament. Until then this is the law. In the past there were trials held against Army butchers who murdered civilians in Mailanthannai in Batticaloa and Kumarapuram in Trincomalee. In Mailanthanai, 36 villagers including 12 women and 8 children were massacred by the Army. In Kumarapuram, 21 villagers including women and children were murdered in cold blood by the so called Ranawiruwos. In both cases the killers were properly identified by witnesses at the identification held in court. This was possible because the killers were from army camps set up in the villages and were familiar to the people. When trials came up in the High court they opted to be tried by the jury and the all Sinhala jury returned the verdict of Not guilty and the High Court had to acquit the accused in both cases. Sinhala jury consists usually of highly racist and with low IQ iskola mahattayas, wedamahattayas, government clerical servants etc. who are part of the lower middle class Pancha Maha Balavegaya unleashed by the Bandaranayke social revolution of 1956.

    Saadu Saaaaaaaadu Saaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaadu……………………………..good decision by the President. If this ex-soldier died from the Wuhan, then Tamils will complain that justice was not served. They only remember justice when it suits them.

    Now he’s needed for the Muslim war.

    Btw, there are some pictures circling in social media about Muslim fellas in skull caps delivering groceries to Sinhalese. You know that skull cap was a giveaway. It was worn so that the so-called good Samaritans would be easily recognized as Muslims. These types of gimmicks are good enough to fool the gullible.

    If you believe in this type of childish gimmicks, you got to be ashamed of yourself and the educational institutions that gave you an education.

      Once upon a time, this guy SHEMALE from Toronto was a Cook for the Army. Well could also be a boy prostitute for senior Army office. Now keeping away from the island, make big talks… the bugger if he opens his cesspit what comes out is only smells.
      :This bugger should get what he deserves for having committed that moutains of high crimes.
      Once there was an article about the harrasments in lanken buses. There this bp was telling that he was having fun … as a youth… what they called Jackeka gahanawa. Today, he may be practising the oldest being in Toronto, we cant tolerate him as a great sinhalaya but an another BP akin to that Ultra racist from DOwn under. All these may face what they deserve sooner than later.

    Jaffna Judiciary has to lost their impartiality and Independence by the roots of that Racism of Tamil nationalism .
    The Law of Jaffna was run by tamil version of justice. Which has to be redress by President of Republic. He has done that. So there is nothing wrong given Pardon by President of DSR of Lanka. President stood for Justice.

      Herath,

      Absolutely.

      I can’t imagine the predicament of this fearless soldier standing in front of a rogue Tamil judge highly influenced by Sri Lankan and Norwegian politics funded by a blood thirsty Tamil diaspora and a racist Jaffna populace demanding their pound of flesh.

      Anyway, let bygones be bygones, the injustice has been reversed. The man is free at last god almighty.

      Was it the justice of Ellara?
      Please clarify.

      “So there is nothing wrong given Pardon by President of DSR of Lanka. “

      Of course there is nothing surprising in that, a Psychopath pardoning another.
      Is Sunil Ratnayake entitled for a white van franchise?

    Here comes the end to the heated discussion readers were having about LKY 2.0. In the midst of a human crisis GR used his special privilages to set free, a ex army personal ( I guess soon will be reinducted ) who was found guilty of murdering EIGHT civilians in Mirusuvil and was sentenced to death. GR was muliing a few days ago setting free small time offenders due to prevailing crisis and hence considered this as one. This is how Lankan leaders exploit the human tragedy. One brother stole the Tsunami fund and now this one set free a murderer. MS too did the same. I am sure Lee kuan Few would have had much better things to ponder during a human crisis. I wonder PM who was voicing about dastardly acts few days ago consider this (both the murder and pardoning ) as one ????

    Hey Rajapaksa supporters, you okay with this? Are you unable to comprehend that they take care of their criminals, the murderers, thieves, and saffron robes terrorists, and reward some with top jobs? Would you still be indifferent had this been YOUR children? You still voted for these disgraceful family. What kind of leader would pardon a brutal criminal, found guilty in our courts, like this? Do they want to use him for other jobs?

    Thank you CT. Wait and watch how the perverse, “patriotic” mainstream media, owned and operated by Sinhala-Buddhist racists, will suppress or sanitize this information. Bravo Gota !

    Shocking to see those who called this country a Buddhist Country, such as the ever Rajapakse slaves the Catholic Cardinal and the Mahanayakes are very quite on this topic. When SL locks up a person who steals coconut to feed the family and releases a person by presidential pardon who murdered 8 civilians in cold blood may not be a shocker to those who supported Gota and Mahinda as they too have human rights violation charges. One murderer releasing another murderer may be acceptable to those who called this country a Buddhist country but do not follow Buddha’s teachings.

    I begin to wonder where this is going to lead, is the Judiciary going to take this with their heads bow down and hands folded or are they going to take some action; are the civilians now going to loose trust in the judicial system and start settling scores and taking justice into their own hands; are the civilian bodies and law abiding citizens going to realize what a monster they have created as President, realize their grave mistake and teach the Rajapakse family a lesson in the next election? Only time would tell.

    It will also be interesting to see what the so called Sanga, Dealdasa, Dealranil, Rathana Thero, Sajith, Mangala, Dinesh, Hirunika, Fake News Dilka Samanmali, Kudu Media, Ravi, Sampanthan, Anura Kumara, Karu, Namal, Maithripala, Sagala, Patali, Mano, Harsha, Ranjan, Harin, Eran and numerous others going to say about it and do about it.

    UN Human Rights will add this to the list of HR violations list of SL in the coming session.

      Wiimpy, that is only a sign of what is in making. Days ahead of us all high criminals will be free… in order them to get their help for MASS murder on broad day light. Rajakshes are talented at massmurder going beyond Nuremberg trial.
      :
      But our punnaku eaters, paved the way them to ruin this country again. #

      Now they make every effort to make advantagess of the the goods being offered to the people.. as if they came from their own pvt funds. I think if Good governance government was in power, they could get lot more medicine and all good to the nation, bu tpeople did not recognize it… people were made to fools by the media run by Mr 10% that as an american citizen… but doing all worst to this nation.

    What did all these LTTE rump and NGOs say when KP , Karuna muralidaran, Pillayan and 12,000 LTTE caders were released ? Why this guy do not deserve release. There are many Tamils who are direct murderers or associated with roaming around.
