    We detest British sayings, but like they say “GO TELL IT TO THE MARINES”.
    These are all bull shit stories concoted for us fools to delude ourselves that there is something happening in the echelons of Justice and Anti Corruption.

    Until we see something concrete happening in all these arrests, cases, and remandings we would appreciate if a full stop is cried to publishing these tongue in the cheek stories.This Govt is fearful of taking the next step.

      Why this took that long to start with the step ? Even if this was one of worst abuses allegedly have occured under the regime of MR ?

        Had this been given the priority, Rajakashes would long have been in jails by today. We could even limit the foreign travels of them. Today they abuse the freedom given to them. He continues telling the very same folks, as if his single mediation saved the naton.

        New rule seems to have difficulties in recognizing priorities ?

        Why is that ?

        At least Mr President coudl intervene here.

        Independent commissions have been called.

        But what have they achieved sofar ?

        Any tangible issues ? Can anybody please make a summary on this ?

          A citizen perera, commenting on a national daily, seen this latest drama as follows : //This is to take attention away from President’s bribe case which is all over Australian media, very serious allegation by Australian Federal Police//.

          There are daftly idiots in the likes of Seelawathie Jayasinghe, Samuel Jayaweera, Sam Fernando etc., who are the lame lackys of ranil-my3-cbk troika. In order to keep them alive, and keep writing bullshit to safeguard this below zero regime, the govt takes some steps such as this. So, the public do not have to take this latest allegation as serious.

            You are different, you are the official b***s carrier to the saffron clad thug Gnanasara. It is alright then.

            “This is to take attention away from President’s bribe case which is all over Australian media, very serious allegation by Australian Federal Police”

            Whoever typed that comment he/she was right, however we also read stories in the same media, that every other week 250 LTTE suspects were being arrested in Colombo, 1000 of them were killed, invoking stories on super patriotism, ….. Marsian invasion, … ….

            Did you take time to verify the stories?

            Did you also notice that during the period of great patriotism, theft of unprecedented scale took place, both in terms of state wealth and people’s freedom?

You idiots want to title those who have other opinions with various shit names and attack them. What a vague way of exchanging views. No wonder. Im stupid to expect a decency from a lacky of Tamil chauvinism.

                    Dont you think so ? Else, Buruwanse would continue calling anything being discussed with foreign communities as “FOREIGN CONSPIRACY” or a foreign invasion.

Nonetheless , whenever i get a free time i never forget to scroll through comment section . our old Mafia king and his thieves are extremely lucky to roam around the world freely , i’m patiently waiting to see the end of this drama .
                    About these Mahinda’s disciples comments ,actually there is hardly anybody to counter attack us , they just always come up with the same old weak arguments , nothing new.

                Even Dayan Jayathilaka is now reported to be waiting until Incumbent president sends him an invitation – he himself uttered this in a recent public speech on TV.

                This particular Max is hired by MR co. to save their bums filled with all kind of smears. Leave it for them. Today we have the freedom to express unlike prior to 8th Jan 2015.

                Ballige PUthas of all kind will have to spend the rest in the prisons… will be the reality. I am paitent enough to see it next.

You Samuel may be a ballige putha but dont put everyone who opposes to your silly POV to that category.

                  Bdw, NV, Im sorry for my language targeting you in my previous comment.

                  Not worth of counter arguing with you such gobbawathies like Aseelavathie and Nosandala Leelavathie or gobbas like Sam F or Simon De S.

                    May well be – no need to loose your temper -only piles can make you even worse, you may be made every efforts to close to MR et al but ended up in vain… who knows even self proclaimed SENIOR DIPLOMAT, POLITICAL ANALYST then Premadasa boot licker Dayan had bad days with former leader. Remember the day DJ was branded as POWERFUL NGO WORKER.. nevertheless he never stop licking the ass or anything. Even today, he works for MR s return – civli society groups make every cry not to bring the bugger or anyone with the blood back to lanken politics.

                    I very much respect all such gobbawathies like Aseelavathie and Nosandala Leelavathie or gobbas like or Simon De S.
                    They have finally realized – MR has looted the nation as no other and we must not pave way them to rise again…. their golden efforts are alway commentable by anyone with a bird brain.

                    Native Vedda or others do the same being against to MaxES or Sachs.. I hat off…

                    If you are a guy with some level of education should have long realized that Rajakashes weere though okay to eliminate LTTE terror from the country, but the worst men in the post war sessions…. and be happy if accorinding to you have had no ties with those Raja families. Even an ant flew near to them definitely earned a huge damage to their lives as the on going investigations reveal today…. dont you read the news -?

                    If nothing can help you go to the nearest psychologist and have your checked – no too late.. You guys should finally sense it.. since you are still a part of this nation.

    Gota was trying to convince the people that he didn’t take even a penny outside his salary during his employment. I have no idea how come he has property bought in US with that type of an income. Here comes the real hidden agendas of those so called UPASAKA’s. I think there are many more to come out so that real GR will be exposed to the public very soon.

    Gota & MR sold the idea, that they were the only once who won the war single handedly. Lets thank the real people who won the war, not the card board horu.

    1. House maids- for the forighn exchange earnings they sent so war could be successfully concluded.
    2.Soilders/police/stf/airforce/navy- who died in battle and got injured.
    3.People of the country who majarity be it buddhist/hindu/muslim/christian said its better to have a united sri lanka.
    4.Indian radar officers
    5.Pakistani pilots
    6.American intelligence agency who gave the coordinates of the arms vessels of the LTTE
    7.Karuna breaking away
    8.Ranil facilitating the split
    9.Karunas father inlaw
    10.Sarath fonseka never say die attitude
    11.World opinion change after september 11th. thank OBL

      Good Analysis. But NO Pakistani pilots flew in COMBAT missions.Karuna’s split was a great strength. If CBK has not spoilt the Ranil’s peace efforts, LTTE could have been fished out to starvation without further loss of life.The smart way to solve a conflict.End of the day children of the poor from both sides died.A surgeon’s success is not based on the count how many patient died on the operating table but the number of lives he/she has saved. This applies to the political leadership too.

      Jehan, MR or Gota never said the 14 players that you mentioned did not contribute to crush Tamil Tiger Terrorists. Except for idiots like you, all the others in Sri Lanka know that MR and Gota boost the moral of the armed forces and gave the leadership to defeat Tamil Tiger Terrorists. It was Judas Sira who called MR ‘Maha Rajano’ although now he is trying hard to discredit his achievements.

    This one of the best news for the people of Sri Lanka.

    Gota played with the lives of the people. Leave aside the war with the Tigers. Gota served the purpose to eliminate the nasty LTTE.

    Gota did lots of bad things as well. White van abductions, murders of journalists, grease yakkas, forceful grabbing lands, enjoying the luxuries with the ill gotten wealth, importing hybrid dogs from overseas, corruption to his teeth etc., etc. must be investigated and justice delivered.

    Even his honorary doctorate from the Karate Club must be investigated.

      Gota did also the highest crimes namely

      1)giving priority to Abductions prior to being tortured – best living example is Wanathamulle Sunil who is set to free on DIG s instruction, 2 hours after blind folded man went missing. He can be a best example if Investigator would need more

      2) BBS led violence, Ballige Putha Gota was the head of their commands. That rabid dog the leader of BBS hidden in sanga constume is a drag queen to us while some go after him calling him a good monk – he perpetrated day light crimes inclu. Aluthgama riots that took the lives and livelyhood of innocient muslima srilankens…

      Goverment did nothing on this.

      3) Rathupaswala shooting took the lives of innocient young children injuring masses, it was under the command of this most aggressive man commands.

      Rajapakshes are better only for Butchering. Let them rest in pieace in Bogambara or the like prisons for rest of their life.

    This is not about prosecuting thieves. It is about who were stealing legally and who were stealing not legally.

    In 1990’s the political leadership didnt want to take 15000-25000 casualties .
    in 2009 MR took the decision to take the casualties of war.
    There is no doubt MR & Gota had a part to play, but all played there parts.
    After war is a different matter, with there criminal matter. recognition have to be given to all.Also if a professional is appointed for a job, he is expected to do the job- there is nothing special about it. Corruption cannot be justified because Gota played a part in finishing the war.

    I am glad that PM understood the gravity in trying to put a former defense secretary to prison.
    What fraud the former secretary did or not did I would not know. But, but he was one of the greatest contributors in smashing the ltte cowards (hide and attackers)from earth.
    I am sure PM Wicks knows this better than the ltte sympathisers themselves.

    the short man Sec’s brother, we all know the type of person he was, PM also knows it and so it happened as it should.

    Three cheers for PM.
