“Babaa” – “Naa Baba Hukung”: ‘Take Action’ – CJ’s Lawyers Writes To President’s Brother Speaker

By Colombo Telegraph

The Lawyers for the Chief Justice Dr. Shirani A. Bandaranayake today wrote to the  Speaker Chamal Rajapaksa regarding the derogatory terms used to address Chief Justice at the PSC.

The lawyers Neelakandan and Neelakandan wrote to President Rajapaksa‘s elder brother; ” We trust you will agree that such behaviour is inappropriate in any circumstances. It must be even more so when the Respondent is the Chief Justice of the country and a lady at that.”

We publish below the full text of the letter;

Hon. Chamal Rajapaksa
The Honourable Speaker
Pariiament Secretariat
Sri Jayewardenepura
Kotte.
Honourable Sir,

CONDUCT OF SOME OF THE MEMBERS OF THE PARLIAMENTARY SELECT COMMITTEE INQUIRING INTO ALLEGATIONS AGAINST THE CHIEF JUSTICE 

We write on the instructions of our Client Dr. Shirani A. Bandaranayake.

We wish to draw your attention to the manner in which some members of the Select Committee conducted themselves and request you to take action which you consider appropriate. The Chief Justice was insulted. The gestures made and mannerisms were totally unacceptable. Some of the words used were inter alia the following:
“pissu gaani”
” Api Me Nonava Methana Thiyagena Methana Thiyagena Madawanawa”
“Babaa” – ” Naa Baba Hukung”,
“Usaviye Nadagam Natanawa”
“Meyaata Adamla Godak Innawa”
“Babaa Wage Hitiyata Babaa Wage Weda Nee”

We trust you will agree that such behaviour is inappropriate in any circumstances. It must be even more so when the Respondent is the Chief Justice of the country and a lady at that.

Yours faithfull

Neelakandan and Neelakandan

    VERY DISGRACEFUL. This shows the type of Ministers in our Parliament. I have also noticed that most readers call our “EMPEROR” RAJAPASSA. I wonder whether he has a King Sized buttocks – maybe his brain has drained to that area. Anyway, more appropriate is to change it slightly the end of the name “SSA” and replace it with “KAYA” which means “body” as he exhibits a body of an EMPEROR without clothes.

      Insultng Sri Lanka’s CJ is equal to insulting the nation itself. But, nothing will happen to these PSC clowns. Sri Lanka is a Banana Republic. Run by an uneducated family. Speaker is President’s brother. He is there to cover President’s back. Not Sri Lanka interests. Idiots in Sri Lanka who elected these clowns to Parliament are responsible. LOL.

          Gamini, I am not a worshipper of the Late Mr. SWRD but must say that he tried to provide an opportunity to the ordinary man in running the affairs of the country. Unfortunately it was not to be so. Mr. SWRD did not encourage anyone to be uncultured and abusive of others. You too might recall a story that went round in those days, which the Postal Peon turned MP, M. S. Themis addressing Sri John as John and got a slap in return. When he complained to SWRD, his reply was ‘You must know to respect those who should be respected, even I do not address him as John, so be careful in the future. SWRD’s intentions were good, but it was not to be so; and when he realised this and was attempting to make the changes a Buddhist Monk turned plotter and another who turned a killer who did not want the changes ended SWRD’s life.

          Lanka Muslim, in any country there is the rich and the poor, the Cultured and the Uncultured, Honest and deceitful, Educated and the Ignorant, Decent and Indecent. You can not just give position to Ordinery men to claim they have been elevated. Then the result is what the society is today. Instead all should have been given opportunity to come up the social ladder as none of our fore fathers were British but Natives of this land and we have come up with Education and hard work. But Banda tried to hoodwink by giving positions to people like Themis the Postal Peon and the Buddhist Clergy as Buddharakkitha who was keeping Wimala Kannangara, to woo the Buddhists. In the end he got killed by them. The muck in society he enabled to occupy posts that they were hardly suitable to hold, naturally ruined the country.

          Sexist and sexually suggestive language used here against the first woman Chief Justice of Sri lanka is a NATIONAL DISGRACE. Women’s groups should start a campaign to force weerawansa and Perera to RESIGN.
          Women’s groups should protest the sexism of the Sri lanka politicians and parliamentarians and demand a 50 percent reservation for women in parliament.
          The pretense that women are equal to men in Sri Lanka maintained by the likes of the sick geriatric clown who is the Prime Minister, Dim Jayaratne, must end.
          In sri Lanka there are fewer women in parliament and governance than even in Pakistan!

        Weerawansa and Dilan Perera MUST BE FORCED TO RESIGN. These ignorant politicians the latter – an “Adam with many Eves”, must be sent packing just like the other lout, Mervin Silva.
        Lanka needs a peoples movement to protect the country from politicians and their corruption.

        Like Rajapassa, Ranawaka and Weerawansa like to blame everything that goes wrong on western countries instead of taking responsibility for the messes they create through ignorance and greed.

          Don,Wansa and Dilan are patriots!They won’t go.When SF was
          taken our women were not on the street for Anoma?? Why?
          We don’t care.Today CJ and tomorrow Ranil,if Ranil played
          too smart!That’s the strategy behind having the brothers
          at key posts.One can see the real MR when a volcano erupts.
          The opposition so far failed to bring that in.Is that fear?

      Could you let him know that the emperor has no clothes.

      “The Emperor’s New Clothes” (Danish: Kejserens nye Klæder) is a short tale by Hans Christian Andersen about two weavers who promise an Emperor a new suit of clothes that is invisible to those unfit for their positions, stupid, or incompetent. When the Emperor parades before his subjects in his new clothes, a child cries out, “But he isn’t wearing anything at all!” The tale has been translated into over a hundred languages.

        Native Veddah, thanks for your reply. I didn’t write about Emperor’s new clothes but about his nakedness. I don’t have to let him know but the whole world especially his immediate family members know that he is not only minus clothes but other manly things as well. If he poses as a native veddah, we could see what is missing and I wish if you too could add “KAYA” to “SSA” in RAJAPASSA and then you know what he is.

      THIS EMPEROR NOT ONLY CLOTHES LESS, BUT OTHER REPRODUCTIVE PARTS-LESS ALSO.

      “pissu gaani”- mad woman
      ” Api Me Nonava Methana Thiyagena Methana Thiyagena Madawanawa”- we are keeping this woman here and giving her hell
      “Babaa” – baby;
      “Naa baba Hukung”,- untranslatable, may be “don’t try to be a baby” or worse
      “Usaviye Nadagam Natanawa”- (she is) playing hell in courts
      “Meyaata Adamla Godak Innawa”- she has a number of Adams
      “Babaa Wage Hitiyata Babaa Wage Weda Nee”- although she is like a baby, her work is not that of a baby

        Neelaw, that’s very kind, thanks.
        My proposal is:
        This iron lady should be the one to become the common presidential candidate – the sooner the better. We should agitate for this. I have no doubt she will win. Having won the election she should dissolve the parliament and conduct a fair election and she should abolish the executive presidency. She must oversee that the parliament (with of course decent MPs!!) becomes most supreme ligislative and executive institution of this nation.

        Will she do it? I believe she will.

          it depends on how you define – being educated.

          if one would put him under the educated – with all the problems that we ve been facing – seeing no wayouts – ..

          No matter the folks have been assaulted, abducted or murdered…

          No matter the CJ or anyone similar being abusively attacked

          No matter MR’ s doggy ministers would continue harm the nation

          MR seem to be not even uttering a word about that – this alone shows that HE IS VERY EDUCATED, A LEADER WITH WISDOM. :(

    This puts to lie the statement by Yapa that the CJ was accorded full honours and treated with respect. Also indicates that if these are not recorded in the hansard that the records are fraudulent. This is nothing but the taunts and insults of thugs and ruffians who sit in parliment and called honourable members of parliment. They dishonour even their fathers and mothers by engaging in this vile behaviour.

    A list of all those Professionals and Academics who support the Impeachment should be noted and should be treated in like fashion in the future. These are the common enemies of the society.

      Those who support the impeachments cant never be professionals or academics. They are just ones who just enjoy their perks. As revealed, none of the them on the list have studied the CJ’s accusations before they put their signatures on that list. This was what all 3 opposition candidates of the investigating committee have CLEARLY NOTICED. So I thought this really has a legal background – it now seems to be just a revenge on CJ that is the truth. This is common if educated ones have to get on with majority uneducated – parliamentarians.

    Whether it succeeds or not opposition should move a motion of no confidience against the speaker for not taking suitable action against the indisciplined conduct of the two members of PSC.

    The action may not succeed due to numbers but would be invaluable, given that it is taken within parliment itself. It will expose the duplicity and latent support given the speaker to abusive and indisciplined behaviour of govt members.

    Weerawansa is not his real name. He was involved in a bank robbery in Badureliya in 1988-89. Pity Ranjan wijeratne could not get him. Dilan Perera forged DM Jayaratne’s signature when he was Secretary of the PA in 1995 and got a Parliamentary scholarship to go to Jamaica for a few weeks. This was reported in the Sunday Leader.

    iam from Badulla, Dilan Perera is three times divorced because he wont spare a poor woman in these areas. he is bastard who has ruined the life of many poor women. this fellow must be exposed and hounded out.
    Recently he got into a paddy field to bluff the poor the gonas refused to move as they too do not respect this pariah.
    i have seen people calling gonwansa as a berawaya. yes our village hamaduruwo said that those fellows were never taken close to respectable homes

      Dharmadasa,how do you think Anura and MARA handled teaching
      appointments to girls in 70’s? That’s the time Anura was
      labelled “gona” and became a thick pal of MARA.Anura got
      rejected by the people and thanks to making Nuwara-Eliya a
      three member electorate Anura got elected but came third.
      Where do you want to put his buddies? Stories were flying
      about Premadasa being bathed in milk by virgin girls against
      bad spells.Lots of stories about Hema as well.They were true
      to a certain extent.But don’t forget to pass the blame to the
      common man who knowingly support evils,for personal gains
      and not feeling ashamed of being under the influence of the
      evils.

    It is disgusting to note the behaviour of the Ministers in Parliamnet. VERY DISGRACEFUL.

    If such terms were actually used, then it is derogatory and unbecoming of any one who used them. Leave alone a Chief Justice, even a beggar woman should not be addressed in that manner.

    But the question is does the transcript and the audio recording support that? IF not, how can you prove it?

    If you cant prove it then it becomes a false accusation. What then eh?

    It is seem to be Rajapakse and family have got some bribe from KP and becoming traitors to the motherland.
    Otherwise how can this to be happened.
    The psc could act more civillised manner and could have been adopted a procedure which would have been exhibit the rule of natural justice and after all they could given their own decision without degrading the Srilanka
    But PSC have done following stupid acts
    1.not giving sufficient time
    2.not behaving civilised manner
    3.not acting as professionals (could think about the Weerawanasa’s acts
    but all the others are professionals and having fair educational background. Have they offered kind of bribe in order to act like this.
    Or are there a bribe cases with PIU and threatened .
    And the most professional Anura Yapa And Very most Senior Nimal Siripala Have been given carrot of primiership.)
    4.dual words regarding the withnesses etc etc

    Both VW and DP appear to be having sadistic personality disorders. May be that VW cannot stand up to people with higher learning and DP is not able to face women with liberal attitudes. However the sad story is that both display this behavior at the expense of taxes paid by the people of SL.

      Do not rush to blame the rulers for all their evils.Opposition has

    Why do their colleagues (if they have a shred of decency) not resign ? After all their silence will be mistaken for compliance and they too will be branded with the same iron.
