Bandula Wants To Come Back, President Says ‘No’

Sri Lanka’s Consul General to Sydney, Australia “Ambassador” Bandula Jayasekera has requested permission to return to Colombo cutting short his tour of duty, Colombo Telegraph learns.

Bandula Jayasekara

Jayasekera who was formerly Presidential Spokesman was posted to Sydney as Consul General in November last year.

Before ending a year in his new position, Jayasekera has expressed a desire to return to Colombo, sources told Colombo Telegraph, but President Mahinda Rajapaksa has turned down the request.

The President instructed Jayasekera to complete his two year term before returning to Sri Lanka.

The Consul General who refers to himself as ‘Ambassador’ Bandula Jayasekera, even though Sri Lanka has a High Commissioner to Australia, Admiral Thisara Samarasinghe, was granted the diplomatic posting as a means to “promote” him out of the Presidential Secretariat where he was becoming increasingly troublesome, the sources said.

Jayasekera has nominated himself Sri Lanka’s propagandist and protector in chief on the social media network Twitter and regularly engages other users who dare to voice dissenting opinions, calling them agents of the LTTE or Tiger Mercenaries.

One Government source quipped that Jayasekera was requesting an early return because he was missing the ‘action’ in Colombo, where he can resume his machinations within the regime instead of being cut off from anything of significance in Sydney. In August Jayasekera arrived in Sri Lanka with a business delegation and inserted himself into several Government functions and overstayed his holiday, the source said. He is believed to have lived at state expense at a five star hotel, Kingsbury Colombo during his extended ‘official’ holiday, Government sources said.

    GoSL and its servants are masters of deception. By repeatedly lying and introducing the word terrorism, they think they can escape scrutiny and act with impunity.Mr Bandula it is right time you learn simple lesson in life. People inside a glass house should not throw stones at others!!! You MUST NOT throw stones from the safety of your glass house. Act the words patriotism not only talk talk talk. By repeatedly lying to the GoSL to live the high life, to go where you want to go will be exposed.

    To Colombo Telegraph Journalists – check out the Sri Lankan Consulate General Sydney Facebook page for a man who is misleading people with certain pics of Sri Lanka. Uneducated no doubt there are no mountains near the sea in Sri Lanka but his pics show mountains. A man who doesn’t know a day’s hard work and income inequalities posting pics of hard working men as lassana Sri Lanka.
