CID To Question Wimal, Dinesh Over Suicide Jacket

The Criminal Investigation Department (CID) is to question Parliamentarians Dinesh Gunawardena and Wimal Weerawansa over the recent discovery of a suicide jacket along with other explosives in Chavakachcheri.Vasu-Dinesh-Wimal-Udaya

The decision comes after the CID grilled former minister G. L. Periris for over three hours over his statement that the suicide jacket was to be transported to Wellawatte.

The CID will question Gunawardena and Weerawansa to ascertain whether they have similar information as disclosed by Peiris, and after Peiris told the CID that it was Gunawardena and Weerawansa who had in fact informed him that the suicide jacket was to be transported to Wellawatte.

Meanwhile, initial investigations have found that the suicide jacket was manufactured in 2008. The cache of explosives has been sent to the government analyst, and the report is expected to be released by mid this week.

      why not ?

      But he has already spoken with RW and Pre on this.

      He is the king to spread Rumours right ?

      Having heard what he lied on the public stage – about a 8month year infant to have said ” Jaya wewa” – should be an issue to BMJ to analyse – I have never heard the kind of wonders done by any homo sapien infant sofar –

      Lies of MR sort have no limits. He is born rascal and will die also as a rascal for sure.

      The CID must devote its time to truly investigate:

      Wimal Modavanse’s assets without venturing into investigate his idiotic burps. How did this former shot gun terrorist gain so much wealth to build a luxury house, acquire vehicles and send his manike weekly to beauty and massage parlors.

      Dinesh Gunewardene’s personal wealth and lifestyle is a secret. Can someone dig into this and make a complaint to the CID.

    Old games are being replayed! Experience should teach us to be wary, given the circumstances that prevail now. I yet remember the story that preceded the 1958 riot- that a Sinhala lady teacher’s body with her breasts cut was arriving from Batticaloa. Such a body never arrived! In revenge the Hindu priest at the Panadura temple was burnt alive. Vellupillai Prabaharan later claimed that this incident, of which he heard in his childhood, set him on the course he traversed.

      I am not sure about the story of the lady teacher triggering the riots in 1958. But thee was another murder which was used as excuse by some. But the build-up was there since earlier in 1958, with the Tar brush campaign following the not-so-clever anti-Sri campaign.

      While the killing of the Hindu priest was true, I doubt if it triggered VP’s political life.
      How old was he then? There were several hundred victims in 1958.

    Please note that there are 11.1 million pages of Off Shore accounts available from the recent leaks:

    It appears that a number of Sri Lankan companies are involved in off-shore investment (where the crooks hide their ill-gotten wealth).

    What have you been doing since last evening when this was first published?

    Bring back Ben Hurling, he is caught napping once again.

    When you put an Eunuch in charge of the police as law and order minister this is how they catch terrorists. In 2002 Nandicadal Thambi had the then PM by his nuts this is history repeating itself this time with diaspora money.

      Patriot the pathetic

      “When you put an Eunuch in charge of the police as law and order minister this is how they catch terrorists.”

      Remember the Hui court eunuch Admiral Zheng He captured Kotte King Vira Alakeshwara and dragged him all the way to China.

    The extremist forces are back at play. They want to create chaos in the country and come back to power by hook or crook. Unfortunately the general public is to suffer.
    Whether Sinhala in 24 hours or Pada Yathra or Diaspora Mania, the the rich and their children will have their higher education done in foreign lands. Only our children will suffer through the local system with Sinhala spoken only by 20 Million, Ragging, strikes over private colleges. By the time our children crawl out of our Local “ischool” these rich kids are ready to rule over us with “forigin”certificates. So our children can be packed by plane loads to work as housemaids, cleaners and house drivers.
    For god’s sake let the government of the day rule and do something. The opposition can make a contribution by making useful criticism.
    The professor is qualified enough according to my previous critic to accept or not to accept some mental fellas speech.
    The EP/PM shouldn’t be playing silent politics to such speeches in public. They both should order such gossip makers to be put behind bars for the safety of the nation.
    Otherwise a defeated jackal is waiting. If he grabs power, he wont wait for laws of the land to do its work. Ratherhe will send all the Yahapalana Nade and who ever made a hint of support to them to the State lodge.

      “…. the rich and their children will have their higher education done in foreign lands. Only our children will suffer through the local system with Sinhala spoken only by 20 Million,…”

      Those who are Able to get an Education in the English Language, can Communicate with the Wider World, and are looked at with Envy by the Rest.

      This is why the Professionals who know the value of a Good Education, are leaving Sri Lanka in Droves!

      We are left with Ill-Educated Politicians to Run the Country!

        So that’s why we normal folks make an awareness in the country through forums like these. Unfortunately we fight with each other, so the politicians make a joke out of all our lives.
        While changing the main language of the education system, political system also need a revamp. Such as minimum educational qualification to enter any political office – start with A/L then to graduates.One per family to enter to any political office – this deprives Maharajahs in each district, Maximum term for EP, PM and Ministers. Retirement age for politicians at 65, Maximum number of ministers – only in our dreams, Selected cabinet ministers to face an educationists panel to ascertain their eligibility or get kicked out
        These are some of the things we can contribute in these forums for the betterment of our country. But will it happen? Only time will tell.
        Thank you.

    The tales of pockets of remnant LTTE cadres and jackets of explosives is never going to die. That kind of fear is a perception rooted in our past.

    I am a Tamil. I don’t believe for a moment that there are any LTTE cadres on the path of resurrecting the armed resistance. But, if the authorities keep on continuing to suppress Tamils in the pretext of national security interests they may have to take the blame for forcing extremism on yet a generation of Tamils.

    Any armed resistance of the type LTTE advocated has run its course.

    Human ingenuity has no limits. The form of resistance mankind may choose is difficult to envisage. But, no man that I know of practices the wisdom of offering the other cheek!

    As long as the Government is satisfied that there is no undue compulsion on any section of the population to resort to the extreme there need be no fear of pockets or even jackets.

    Even before the CID arrested the suspect in connection to the “suicide west”incident, Wimal Weeravansa and G.L. Peiris know that the “suicide west “was going to be transported to Wellawatte. They do not say just Colombo, but precisely to Wellawatte. How and where did they get this information. This is an obvious plot to show the world that insurgency is returning. I can predict with certainty that the CID investigation on Weeravansa and Peiris will NEVER conclude anything. This is Srilankan politics.

    Wimal Weerawansa alias Weerasangili Panikkiyalage Wimalasena, a drummer or Berawaya from Berawagoda, in Gammana in Pasdun Korale West the pseudo-patriot is a shame. He is a descendant of the retinue of Berawa caste people brought by Kannangara Muththa the forefather of Dr. C W W Kannangara when he settled down in Loolbadduwa. Wimalasena’s father was a top low country dancer who caught the eyes of SWRD Bandaranaike in 1956. Although he had no formal education as such, SWRD gave him and several others appointments as Dancing teachers. His first appointment was to a school in Kalutara area. Wimalasena alias Weerawansa got involved with the JVP and went underground in 1990. He was in hiding in villages close to his fathers village Berawagoda like Yagirala, Paraigama, and Udugama, thanks to people of the Goigama caste.

      I suggest you stop bringing his caste into the discussion. It is irrelevant and politically incorrect.

      Judge him by his thoughts, words and actions.

      “If you do not know Native Vedda, all low fellows act low even if they are made Kings.”

      How do you judge a person low, by his caste or his thought, words and action?

      Your behaviour towards others seem very low. Do you belong to a lower caste? Am I right in saying that you appear to be sitting on your brain.
