Back-Door DPL Posting For Vasu’s Niece

Minister Vasudeva Nanayakkara‘s niece is to be given a diplomatic posting in the Sri Lankan Embassy in Washington DC, it is learnt.

Janathri Nanayakkara who completed an undergraduate degree at the US Binghamton University, a state university in New York will join the Sri Lanka Embassy staff in Washington, External Affairs Minister G.L. Peiris has announced. She has also worked as an intern at the UN and is also reported to have supported at the Permanent Mission of Sri Lanka to the UN in New York.

Janathri who is the daughter of Minister Nanayakkara’s brother Asanga will be posted to the Sri Lankan Mission in Washington because there was a ‘shortage’ of Foreign Service officers, Sunday Times reported Prof. Peiris as saying.

Minister Peiris said he was making the recommendation to appoint Janathri “taking into consideration her educational qualifications and the possibility of utilising the special skills and experience mentioned in her bio-data in an effective manner for the Mission and the shortage of officers in the Foreign Service,” the Sunday Times report noted. The two year posting will take effect from the day she assumes duties, the Minister said.

However questions are being raised about the young girl’s appointment since her qualifications would entitle her to sit the official Foreign Service Examination and face the interview and get through to the diplomatic service the legal way.

Janathri has a double major in economics and in political science with a concentration in global and international affairs. She had originally enrolled at the University of Maine on full scholarship but transferred to Binghamton where she said the environment “eased me into a new culture.” Janathri’s sister is also studying in the US.

In the University magazine Pipe Dream, Janathri notes that her eventual ambition is to become an ambassador for Sri Lanka.

Sri Lanka’s mission to Washington DC is almost entirely served by politically appointed diplomats. Before Ambassador Prasad Kariyawasam, a veteran career diplomat was transferred to the US capital the mission was being headed by President Mahinda Rajapaksa’s cousin Jaliya Wickremasuriya. Chamithri Rambukwella, the daughter of Media Minister Keheliya Rambukwella is also serving as a politically appointed diplomat in Washington.

Analysts and retired Lankan diplomats have noted the ironies of staffing the Washington Embassy with political appointees when Sri Lanka’s foremost international challenges emanate from the United States. “It is no wonder the Government then has to spend hundreds of millions of rupees on PR agencies and lobby firms. How on earth can political sons and daughters barely out of school and with no training have any idea how to navigate the waters in DC?” one observer noted.

The new appointment comes amid strong criticism from the Government about the hundreds of political appointees presently serving on Sri Lankan missions abroad.

    Judging by the qualifications laid down in this article I would say this young woman possesses the write qualifications and has the gumption to succeed in the foreign service.

    If she has already gained experience interning at the UN in NYC then DC should not be too difficult to get around.

    I think it should be noted that it is young blood that is usually injected into most successful Foreign offices of nations in the developed world such as UK, Sweden and Holland. Special fast track mechanisms are put in place exactly for this reason.

    Looks like CT and others are just trying to jump on Anura Kumara’a band wagon in naming and shaming political appointees. There may be a reason as to why he omitted her and Vasu’s names from the list. Perhaps because it is am acceptable appointment as opposed to a political one.

      “Looks like CT and others are just trying to jump on Anura Kumara’a band wagon in naming and shaming political appointees.”

      Why waste time with all those examinations that potential recruits have to sit and training at Bandaranaike International Diplomatic Training Institute and the Sri Lanka Institute of Development Administration?

      Let the aspiring young women and men know they stand no chance of serving the country if they are not born with a silver spoon in their mouth. In this case she is connected to corrupt politicians.

      What was the process by which Janathri Nanayakkara was selected to serve as a diplomat?

      Oh she comes from a Nayaka family.

            His Ministry of National Languages and Social Integration has Vasu’s son as a Senior Adviser and this joker effectively runs the Ministry and is flying kites for national disintegration with donor funds!

            Voila the Miracle of Modayas!

            That’s an amazing speech. She is more than suitable for that post. Why CT you guys chasing on the appointment without appreciating her skills shown at the commencement speech. On another note, I have seen a number of people who are serving in foreign missions coming through the proper procedure BUT have done nothing substantial for the country except just eating up their salaries. Good luck girl!!!

          Flycatcher , true story about Sinhala speaking foreign service employees. But pea brained thick skinned nieces of Vasudeva who together with Sarath N Silva was trying to ruin John Keells group, which would be a company that holds this economy together, shows the type of man he is. He has never done any thing for this country. He eats off us , washing Rajapaksa’s dirty linen . He raised his filthy hand for the 18th amendment . He probably was harassing JKH for what? His pal Sarath Silva gave a verdict against JKH with out hearing the case. He was fine with that? He does not see any thing wrong in that.? He breaks bread with a Tsunami thief(regardless of sevala Silva’s verdict) just because he is being enabled to eat off our tax money?
          Nieces who have thicker skins , who has no qualms about accepting a job, with or without qualifications, with super English etc etc are worse than the uncle who eats off his father’s glory. If she has the qualifications compete on an even keel?

        It is not a question of her qualifications, rather, it is a question as to why there is a diplomat training process for all normal citizens without political contacts. Is it just a meaningless training process? If not, why shouldn’t all staff go through that training? Lets say that graduating from an Ivy league university in the US with an intern in the UN is a substitute for the above diplomat training course. Will some other Sri Lankan student without political contacts graduating with a first class from another ivy league university in the US with an intern in UN get the same treatment? In fact, her father used to be a champion of equality for all. In his speech in the parliament justifying the questionable process to impeach the chief justice, minister Vasudewa Nanayakkara said that they disrobed the privileged elite. What did he achieve by disrobing the privileged elite, if the unprivileged has to take training courses that her privileged daughter doesn’t have to take? I think this is the question somebody has to answer.

        Now Vasu too belong to the club that has to answer the million dollar question – why do the poor Sri Lankan tax payers have to pay millions of dollars to private PR companies (yes the elite class) on top of the already expensive bill to pay diplomats across the Globe?

          If the person has missed a permanent appointment in the UN is of concern- after all an intern.!
          Patriotism and the scoundrel’s last refuge are synonyms- Bombastic One.

          They (Vasu) are turn coats with failed triggers- who knows what after death for sure (see the Pharaoh/mummies) so they like all humans enjoy. Even your Black rights woman MP in the UK Labour- where did she send her kids to school like Weerawanswe at £35k per annum.

          Some people are fortunate to be born rich and be influential and privileged. Many others become privileged not by being born rich but by taking the mass for a political ride. Vasu and his niece fit into both categories. Given the slightest opportunity, I bet you (Thrishantha) would follow the second choice without hesitation.

        Mahinda Rajapakshe is a like a Manthara karaya has turned former communist personalities become highly abusive to this day.

        Mahinda Rjapakshe is like a Magician int hat areas. Recently, I closely listened to Satana program – there the most intelligent lanken Journalist Suranga questioned why the President has violated the consitution. Many failed to respond him there. President himself has promised a lot in his VISION report – but on broad day light he has broken all the promises. But the stupid folks – with no nothing like average knowledage about what is going on there- go on believing him.

        Jaliya Wirckramasooriya has not even a basic degree. Nor could he manage to bring good arguments in diplomatic forums. But Rajapkshe blood relatedness allowed him to REPRESENT the over 93% literate South asian nation in the US whose mother tongue is English .. can you guys imagine ?
        Jaliya had been a the kola mudalali before being moved to the US. This partiuclar Mudalali was not in COLOMBO but in Beliatta. So who cares man – here rules Rajapakshe

      Rajapakshe ballige puthas world have allowed anyone to join for the EXTERNAL affairs no matter they have got through the partiuclar foregin service exam or not.

      You guys – being in the US soil never raised the questions how Rajapakshe administration appointed Jaliya wickramasooriya to represent the country in the US. What kind of degree qualifications or any similar foreign service qualifications that Jaliya has obtained ?

      Bandaranayakes did not allow any unqualified ones to get elected to represent the country but today, Ballige puthas world has turned it to a Pakistan like country. Deyyoma denna ona ape ewunta.. May all gods see this clearly and punish the man accordingly – is my father wish.

      In my younger the if anyone heard the name of VASUDEWA NANAYAKKARA.. there they all respected him as a heroe – born to represent them. But today, I have no doubt – the man s name is mixed up with Mervin ( Kelaniya). He would even start eating the excrements of Rajapakshe family to allow his relatives good kind of positions. This is the nature of smilly world that Rajapakshe have created in this country today.

If you are in ROme – live like a Romer – TODAY in an environment similar to North korea – if we (the dogs) would go against them, to the very same manner North korean leader killed his uncle, Rajapakshe would have every guts to go ahead with that. As Hitlar did it in last moment, suicide by himself would be the only remedy to remove our man -Rajapkshe.

    Good point CT. If she is so qualified why not become a sri lankan diplomat the proper way through an exam. why use political influence? that only undermines her own qualification. Sad that such an educated young girl cannot get a job without her uncle’s help and influence.

    This girl is qualified.
    She is very much better than all other unreasonable recent postings done in crooked ways of Maras cronies.

    This young Nanayakkara comes from a good and educated family.
    I know her Mom well, a smart charming lady. These families are well to do people and they don’t rob or cheat others.

    Although I criticize this appalling régime Left Right and Centre for everything they do (I will continue to do so until Mara & his rogue gangs are gone) I personally think that this gal deserves this job.

        What’s wrong with you – AVB?

        All I said was that this gal is qualified to do the job.
        The recruitment process maybe wrong because her uncle happened to be Vasudewa, but the entire system is also wrong as well. Vasudewa is not a rouge either. Do you want someone like Paba or Anarkali for the post? Almost the entire foreign office is full of unqualified people. Diplomacy is just above zero level. That office is in chaos & politicized. So what’s wrong appointing a western educated gal instead of filling it up with a family’s niece or a cousin.

Had the man a male genital, he would NOT have allowed any kind of appointments against the traditional selection criteria. For what purpose the guy obtained his degrees in the UK – is the question that my niece questioned lately. A former law professor – turned politician to stay deaf and dumb allowing all THuggish Rajapakshes to drive the wagon. – this is the place where srilankens went wrong. Whenever they realize the point, srilankens will raise their head.

    The above line should be modified to say “..there was a ‘shortage’ of Foreign Service officers who are willing to kiss the b** of the regime cronies at every turn and dance to their tune”. Given Peries is one such character naturally he chose not to advertise in the media for the position and instead found within his own ranks. Great keep it up.

          John F Kennedy’s only surviving child (daughter) Caroline Kennedy has been a charity worker and acted as a spokesperson for her family’s legacy. She was never even a recognized politician let alone a trained diplomat. But she and her uncle Ted Kennedy endorsed Barack Obama as the democratic candidate for Presidency early in the primary race. As a sheer gratitude, President Obama has appointed Caroline as American ambassador to Japan in 2013.

          Then again, this type of political appointment is nothing new to the epitome of democracy – America. Many an American politician who were never career diplomats were appointed as US ambassadors to many countries. Such people include Mike Mansfield, Walter Mondale, Tom Foley, Howard Baker and many more. The most famous of all was John F Kennedy’s father, Joseph P Kennedy who was a businessman and never a career diplomat. But President Roosevelt has appointed him as the 44th ambassador to the UK till the end of the war.

          All that shows, this type of diplomatic appointments by President Rajapakse is his prerogative and the cry by detractors is selective and a waste of time.

              You should know by now that I don’t need personal favours from MR. In fact it is we who assist them to develop this country by producing and exporting several billion rupees worth of Sri Lanka produce. I have only one grandson and he is at a fee paying prep school in Battersea.

                “I have only one grandson and he is at a fee paying prep school in Battersea.”

                By the time your English educated grandson qualifies he needs not to worry for a high flying job. With your support he has very good chance of becoming the youngest ever Sri Lankan High Commissioner to the UK.

                While we are discussing Kennedy family, do you think MR learned ballot rigging from old Joe? My Elders tell me old Joe got the Mafia to fix the voting in Chicago, during primaries.

                Was MR’s father a bootlegger in his younger days?

                  Vedda, What made you think that I am not in favour of learning foreign languages. At his tender age my grandson speaks Sinhala, English and Polish very fluently for his nanny is Polish. We are in the process of making arrangements for him to learn Mandarin. I wish the most if not everyone in Sri Lanka follow suit and help the nation to progress yet retain their identity.

                    I am happy for your grandson and wish him well. Does he learn any south Asian languages, such as Malayalam, Kanaada, Telungu, Tamil, Gujarati, Sanskrit, Pali, Hindi,…. ?

                    “I wish the most if not everyone in Sri Lanka follow suit and help the nation to progress yet retain their identity.”

                    Its a good idea only if Aryan Sinhala/Buddhists understand and accept what “Unity in Diversity” means as an idea as well as in reality.

                    Say hello to your grandson.

                      Hindi seems like a sensible choice for our young ones! This could be developed as a link between Tamilasspora and sinhalasspora; moreover, Hindians will be really pleased!

    A quick check on Binghamton University ranking show that it comes last in US top 100. It is not even mentioned in World Rankings! This shows the quality of this degree….

    Diplomatic Service is a specialised field It requires more than a basic degree. What’s the point in training in our own Bandaranaike International Diplomatic Training Institute and the Sri Lanka Institute of Development Administration?

    Money talk bullshit walks they say… in this case CONNECTIONS talk and BullShit also talks… would be interesting to check on the degree, if it was obtained like Gaddaf’s son by paying the Uni… She is way too young to be in a diplomatic posting in WDC without experience…. A stint as an intern in UN is NO qualification to be a diplomat in DC and a future Ambassador.

    If she was sent to Benin, Nigeria, Uganda or some African country initially or even a South American country and let her work her way up the Diplomatic ladder it would have been okay…sadly she being EDUCATED has to pull strings, so that she can continue living in the USA.. NOT the best shot to have taken… I bet the Parents would be so PROUD of their daughter… working and earning in US Dollars…

    Vasudeva Nanayakara, the Socialist sends his brood to the home of rabid capitalism to learn skills? My, what has the world come to? Why is that Socialist Cuba not good anymore?

    She’s too perky to me. She is like a cute blonde holding onto a cute little Chiwawa with squeaky annoying noise.

    She’s certainly a queue jumper. Although I appreciate when credit given when its due.

      You mean like Paris Hilton?. Oh no Jalaiya people are going to miss your cheshire cat smile!.

      About socialist getting educated at captalist countries. One Dayan is enough. Two is just a tad too much.

      Vasu is like the majority of his socialist counterparts love the comforts of capitalism. Just look at the Russian Oligarchs, the Chinese fat cats, Cuban americans, the North Korean leader and his secret passions (both in Switzerland and in NK) and the list goes on.

    Hmmm.. the word of caution for the pretty gal, keep away from those ex-military war criminals like Shavendra Silva who is a known sex maniac who tried to get another good looking gal – AtiKeheal Rumbuk’s daughter.

    Minister Peiris is interested in collecting Sky miles from the airlines only. He always pays extra attention to see that Sky miles have been given to his account. This is in another way misuse of government funds. What I have mentioned is truth and nothing but truth. You can see how he behaves in VIP lounges going after officers to ensure that sky miles are collected.

    Qualification and ability does not allow one to join the public service. GL became Minister through backdoors and he thinks it is ethical to get any post through backdoors. I can read, memorise and lecture; Can I call myself a Professor? This shameless creature should think about thousands of graduates studying to join diplomatic service through exams and interviews. If he legalises backdoors, the standadrd of the profession will be lost. Why are we arresting illegal medical practicioners? Not that they cannot treat a patient but only because they did not get a licence to practice through proper channel. The daughters of politicians can wait in Sri Lanka for two years, sit for the exam and join the service legally. But they do not have the patience and confidence to do that. And the Minister does not have the backbone to tell them to wait and sit the exams. Instead of saying that she has the qualifications, this shameless creature can tell to the cabinet that he does not have the selfpride to block this unethical appointment. Or can venture into old profession.

    When Silva opened eyes Surgeon Kohila, Dr. Wicky and Nurse Rambu hurriedly came in. Didn’t you put the injection? asked Kohi. Rambu said no, not yet, ‘this is my first operation, I want to know how to put an injection’ she said. Surprised Silva asked ‘who are you all?’. You don’t know us? I am Surgeon, Non career political Surgeon. Actually I was a book keeper in Austria. I am well known to Big Boss, so he appointed me as Surgeon here through a cabinet paper. I have been to some hospitals and seen other surgeons doing operations. So I think I too can operate anybody. Silva wodered how it could be. Kohi explained. Don’t worry. I will operate better than any career surgeon from village backgrounds. If any problem, I can call lockka anytime. U know I have his private number. Silva felt little faint. You know this doctor? He is also non career doctor appointed by the boss through cabinet paper for his role in killing animals. This young nurse is also non career nurse, daughter of biggg minister. She has so much influence in the government. So don’t worry, we will operate you and if any problem, we can tell the big boss anytime. He will save us (not you). Hearing this now Silva was totally unconsious. Kohi opened the chest. Rambu asked why something is still moving even after he fainted. Kohi said it is heart you know, it will move as long as he is alive. ‘Let me clean it’, Rambu wanted to clean it by sqeezing the heart!.

    Suddenly I wake up. It was a bad dream. But it is the actual story of our non career dip-low-muts slowly killing the country. While qualified young graduates browse gazzettes for competion exams to join foreign servise, these lots steal the country with the help of some shameless leaders.

    Binghampton students & staff now know that there are two races – whites and blacks – in sri lanka, just as in the USA.
    But they wouldn’t know that foreign genes cause this.
    She talks of a niche into which she will fit – the ‘niche’ was waiting for her thanks to Vasu.
    Now she has a simple job – to whitewash the president and his autocratic terror regime.

    CT – You have got some of the details wrong. The woman here IS the niece of that old buffoon Vasudeva but she didn’t get the job because of him. The old [Edited out] can’t even protect his spouse from abuse by the regime. Do you think GL will give a hoot about Vasu? GL’s main puppet master is Namal. The special talents that GL says this woman has were shown to Namal in 2009 during the SAARC Summit. Using her parents influence she had become a volunteer with the Nilbalakaya during the SAARC and our young prince had apparently first hand experienced here ‘exceptional skills.’ I am sure her “special skills and talents” mentioned by GL will come into good use in Washington DC..especially when our delegations visit.

    That’s an amazing speech. She is more than suitable for that post. Why CT you guys chasing on the appointment without appreciating her skills shown at the commencement speech. On another note, I have seen a number of people who are serving in foreign missions coming through the proper procedure BUT have done nothing substantial for the country except just eating up their salaries. Good luck girl!!!
