Collective Travel Ban Imposed On The Army Commander & His Family By The USA

By Mahinda Rajapaksa

Mahinda Rajapaksa

The United States of America has prohibited the Commander of the Sri Lanka Army Lt. Gen. Shavendra Silva or members of his family from entering that country. Even though we are now in the 21st Century, even members of his family who have not been accused of any wrongdoing have been subjected to a collective punishment reminiscent of the practice in medieval Europe. The people should be the judge of how fair this is. Even though this collective punishment has been meted out on the grounds that the Army Commander had committed violations of human rights, no one knows what these allegations are. Even though the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights says that until a person accused of a crime is proved guilty according to law, he should be deemed innocent, this principle does not seem to apply to Sri Lanka’s Army Commander or even to members of his family. Our government has already conveyed our displeasure in this regard to the government of the United States in the strongest possible terms.

It is because of the historic betrayal committed by the yahapalana government formed by the United National Party, the Tamil National Alliance and the JVP in co-sponsoring UN Human Rights Council Resolution 30/1 in 2015 that other countries are able to name members of our armed forces as violators of human rights. The first operative paragraph of that Resolution had taken note ‘with appreciation’ the September 2015 Report of the Office of the High Commissioner on Human Rights which accused the Sri Lankan armed forces of human rights violations. This report was based on the previous 2011 unofficial report prepared by a three member committee appointed by the then UN Secretary General outside the established procedure of that organisation. In this manner, the UNP-TNA-JVP combine ended up accepting all the unfounded allegations made against our armed forces by various interested parties. Our government has decided to withdraw from the process of co-sponsorship in relation to Resolution 30/1.

Even though the Army Commander of our country and his family have been subjected to a collective punishment reminiscent of medieval times, the yahapalana political parties have not condemned it. UNP Parliamentarian Lakshman Kiriella says that this travel ban imposed on the Army Commander and his family is the responsibility of the present government. The JVP says that the USA has imposed a travel ban on the Army Commander and his family at this particular moment due to a deal to ensure that the SLPP obtains a resounding victory at the forthcoming Parliamentary elections. For its part the Tamil National Alliance has welcomed the collective travel ban imposed on the Army Commander and his family. The people should take note of the fact that when the UNP government co-sponsored Resolution 30/1 in the UN Human Rights Council, the so called anti-imperialist JVP did not oppose it.   

From the discussion that has taken place with regard to the collective punishment imposed on the Army Commander and his family, it becomes clear that the political divide in this country is between the patriotic camp which puts the country first, on the one hand, and born traitors who are waiting for the first opportunity to betray the country, on the other hand.

        Mahinda is the prime accused for war crimes committed because he has the final command responsibility and no one could have committed it without his consent. Therefore it is natural that he has come to defend his general who is way down the line for being accountable for the crimes. Mow that former president of Sudan is to be taken to face ICC, it is only time that former president of Sri Lanka will get the same fate. He is saying that until a person accused is proved guilt according to law, he should be deemed innocent. Firstly did he apply this principle when numerous Tamils were arrested, remanded and tortured in prison on false charges. Secondly, when Shavendra Silva was accused of war crimes, did you ever arrest him, remand him, and charge him in courts presided by a panel of credibility. Therefore it is better for this stupid murderous fraudster to keep his mouth shut. Can this rascal ever step into a country which cherishes human rights. There are several crimes committed by Sri Lanka armed forces for which there is ample evidence from eye witnesses, phone photographs and satellite images, which will be provided to the ICC inquiry.

          “Tamils were arrested, remanded and tortured in prison on false charges.”

          When you have suicide bombers blowing up banks, trains, and VIP’s, it is a chaotic situation. The human inclination in a chaotic situation is not to act rationally. Tamil diaspora should be held liable for financing these terror activities with blood money. The financial records are easy to obtain (as they exist within the digitalized banking system) and should be the responsibility of the intelligence services. The financial records should also be shared with Sri Lankan authorities (CID) and these individuals put on a travel blacklist. If they are dual-citizens, Sri Lankan citizenship should be cancelled.

              One of my uncles was a Commander in the SLA. Kallathonies could never get near us. One time visiting a navy camp in Trincomalee, I remember there was a glass cabinet with Tiger memorabilia, including a cyanide capsule. Another time, I met Balagalle’s son.He had fought at Elephant Pass and killed many thala thel buggers. But still living a simple life, eating only canteen food, waiting for the next round to send the buggers running. These are true heroes who fought for SLA. If Tamil Diaspora wants a new fight, all are ready again.

                Yet Bata slipper wearing VP’s baby brigade thala thel buggers overan the Elephant pass on April 22nd 2000.

                Wiki states 204 soldiers and 150 rebels were killed. Another 357 soldiers were wounded. Among the top army officers killed were Brig. Percy Fernando, Col. Bhathiya Jayatilleka, Col. Rohitha Neil Akmeemana, Col. Harish Hewarachi and Lt. Col. Hewage Hewawasam.
                Sri Lanka begged Hindia to save about 45,000 soldiers remained in the peninsula. Hindia agreed to transport them by sea and drew a line in the sand when Karuna Amman was above to walk across Navatkuli bridge to Jaffna. LTTE was forced to stop by Hindians.

                Those Rana-virus who escaped LTTE were hiding behind Tamil Men/Women. Ask him whether he too was hiding behind Tamil women?

                Not bad on the part of LTTE’s baby brigade,thala thel buggers.

                  Plea for India to rescue 40,000 Sri Lankan troops

                  The Sri Lankan army was on the brink of its most catastrophic defeat in 17 years of bitter civil war with the Tamil Tigers last night, and reports said the country’s president had asked India to evacuate 40,000 troops trapped by a rebel offensive.
                  President Chandrika Kumaratunga’s reported plea for help from India follows a series of stunning military advances by the Tigers during the past two weeks. They have now advanced to within 25 miles of the main northern town of Jaffna, which they fled five years ago. “Sri Lanka’s first appeal has been to India,” one official told a Sri Lankan TV station last night.

                  An official close to the Indian embassy, speaking on the condition of anonymity, yesterday confirmed that the Sri Lankan government had requested India’s assistance. However, there has been no formal response from the Indian or the Sri Lankan governments.

                    India did not evacuate anyone, so what’s your point? If LTTE had brains, they could have captured the whole country with CBK around. Or they could have negotiated a political settlement with her and bond-scam PM Ranil before Mahinda came.

                      Was your mother angry with your absentee father for impregnating her? Was she ever able to bring herself to forgive your dad or you?

                      Dumbass,
                      Hindian never evacuated 40,000 cowards because rather than evacuating the scattered and broken cowards they caught VP by his b***s.

                      I know you are frustrated after all your heroes were sent to the bottom of Nanthikadal. You must have invested thousands in these guys (cyanide capsule, bra bomb, suicide vest, etc.). Reminds me of that Golden Key bugger a long time back. They call this a “pyramid scheme” in the financial world. Those at the bottom make those at the top richer. When the pyramid collapses, the ones at the top run off. Even your hero VP was making a run for it at the end. According to Island, “Head of Sea Tigers’ Women Wing, Purni had confided in Thamilini that Prabhakaran and several other senior commanders were trying to smash through Army defences after having crossed the Nanthikadal lagoon in small boats. According to Purni, Prabhakaran’s contingent planned to reach the sea through the jungles.” Even if he made it to the sea, he would have been captured, as SLN had a complete sea blockade. No help from Hindia was needed.

                  Continue your laughing. Wiki states that in the First Battle of Elephant Pass, around 2000 were killed on both sides. Actually, the LTTE lost many more. There were minefields around the camp. First wave of LTTE (underage child soldiers) were sent to blow up the mines (and themselves in the process). Several hundred kallathonies would have died just in this effort. SLA won the First Battle. In the 2nd battle, LTTE got very lucky. Hindia did not agree to anything. LTTE made a full assault on Jaffna but took a good beating. LTTE was never able to capture Jaffna, even with that stupid worthless fool Chandrika around for 10 years. Because SLA still had good leadership.

                  After Mahinda became President, it took only 5 years to finish off the kallathonies. Even I am laughing at the buggers waving white flags at Nanthikadal. Pottu Amman, Balachandran, Fat Pig, Charles Anthony, etc. Why didn’t they swallow the cyanide capsule, instead of begging the SLA for mercy?

          ‘Para’ Demalu do not have any justification to claim a separate State/Federal system or Devolution of power. It is high time that Sinhala politicians tell this to Demalu that this is the Land of Native Sinhalayo and Vedda Eththo and ask them to face the truth and live in this country or bugger-off to the cesspool across the Palk Strait from where their ancestors came .

            It is time Rajapaksa apologists stopped pointing their fingers at other war criminals, in other countries, and dealt with ours at home. We have to hold those with blood on their hands accountable for the sake of thousands of families, instead of the same record being played again and again about other nations. That is simply justifying what we have done

      Sajith condemns US decision
      Monday, February 17, 2020 – 01:00

      Local

      Opposition Leader Sajith Premadasa MP on Saturday condemned the US decision to impose a travel ban on Army Commander and Acting Chief of Defence Staff Lt. Gen. Shavendra Silva and his immediate family over alleged human rights violations.

      Taking to social media, Premadasa noted “Imposition of a travel ban on army commander Shavendra Silva and his immediate family is regrettable and unfortunate. He is one of the heroic field commanders who spearheaded the national effort to eradicate terrorism.

      “All of us stand by him and his family at this hour of need. As a country we shall always stand with the war heroes that brought about an end to 30 years of terrorism” Premadasa said.
      https://www.dailynews.lk/2020/02/17/local/211650/sajith-condemns-us-decision

      Premadasa Udugambola DIG was banned from travelling to USA (you know why) though his family lived there. Did you or Weerawansa condemn the action by the then State Department officials. Has Weerawansa condemn USA actions?

      You will do well to know that recently little functionaries at Embassy have rejected a Prominent Indian Scholar’s Visa Application.

      By the way “Sri Lanka legislator calls on “patriots” to boycott the US until Shavendra ban is lifted” S.M. Marikkar now refuses to apply for US Visa.

        She is for justice. Savage Indra is world known notorious War Criminal. Call ITJP for a debate for in Indian, American, European, British, Australia, Al Jazeera TV Channels. These all countries supported you and banned LTTE.

        “Sinhalayo who evolved in this country “ Comedy Eagle, then why do you call them Sinha? There was never a lion in Ceylon Island! You call you evolved? From when? From where did you come? When the ants were sowing mushroom spores you geminated out of it? Do you know the meaning of the science word evolution? Write it down here so we can talk about it. Where is the evidence in the Island, Ceylon to show that any races ever evolving to modern civilization in this land. Even Veda Athos came there after evolving to current form. . Even the Veda Athos didn’t come from Balangoda Veda Buddhists. Because you very sheepishly believed for millenniums that you all are born by a woman having sex with lion & when the modern Sinhala Children going home from school and ask parents “Mommy is that true we were born to a lion?” you are trying hide in Balangoda Veda Buddhists. Do you now understand why Siri Mao went to moon to bring rice? You comedies if there is some dumb thing, you say it is you, including calling you Miracle of Asia. It is really so funny and so dumb, man! When Swaziland King told that Kandyan Koothu looked like his country dance, Old King wanted the boys and girls to dance Kandyan Koothu bare breasted to show that King how Kandyan Koothu is exactly looks like Swaziland Kooththu.

    Mahinda old pal

    You were once a champion of human rights, even going to Geneva to make your case heard about the atrocities committed by the police & the army during the JVP reign of terror but now, you will not accept the allegations by the same body for human rights abuses under your watch. As a lawyer, you should know that if you ignore a court summons, you will be tried in absentia & possibly convicted without your side of the story coming to light. So why didn’t you defend your self (& the regime) openly in courts & put all these allegations to rest instead of harping about ‘innocent until proven guilty’? You never tried to prove your ‘innocence’, so don’t blame others.

    SS was one of your guard dogs who obeyed the wishes of his master without questioning. He prostituted himself & behaved no better than a psychotic terrorist, certainly not as an ‘officer & a gentleman’ the country can be proud of. Maybe a war cannot be won without dirty tricks but you lot blatantly defied convention which, as a high officer in the forces, SS should have known better, that is if he had an education. Certainly, his family benefited from the perks dished out by you in gratitude, so now has to share the punishment as well. I hope the world will also impose sanctions on the puppet master that is you & your family too.

      Raj-UK,
      Those days he sold the killings of people like Richard Zoysa in Geneva for his benefit, sold the mothers tears. Then his son and wife were involved in killing Thajudeen. This man is a total disgrace to the human kind. Every Sri Lankan should collectively curse this man and his entire family for what they did to ruin our economy, International reputation, and our value system. Now he is trying to sell Shavendra’s situation to get our foolish people’s vote. Why not protest USA by asking his brothers and their families to give up US citizenship and come home. Why not ask the so called hybrid (US/SL) first lady or their son to give up US citizenship in protest. What is this double standard? Only hope is to appeal the law of nature to punish these Rajapakse monsters.

        How can you say the man who gave leadership to get rid of ‘Para’ Demala megalomaniac Piripakaran bellige putha who gave the leadership to LTTE barbarians that committed heinous crimes against people in this country for three decades is a total disgrace to the human kind? Mahinda Rajapakse did a great service to the human kind by saving the lives of people that could have been butchered by Demala barbarians.
        Although your name is Guru (teacher)-ge, you do not have the brain to understand this simple truth.

          EE;
          Even though your pen name is Eagle Eye, it seems your eye does not maintain a sharp focus and accurate perception throughout the approach to understand the big picture. Anatomically eagles brains are smaller than their eyes. Anyway winning the war was a collective action of many. MR was in the right place at the right time. Though I do not like RW, he should be given credit for creating a rift in LTTE to make Karuna Faction. When MR got the power in 2005, with the help of Prabakaran (by stopping Tamils from voting) LTTE didn’t have International sympathy either. It was week. If you want to give credit only to Rajapakse, then at least give to GR, not to MR. MR tried to chicken out from fighting many times, but it was GR who wanted to continue because of the strength he had from Sarath Fonseka. Even if MR won the war single handedly as your eagle brain believes, it was his job as the President of the country. Any President gets paid well with all the benefits to do the job, they don’t do honourary work. It is the same with armed forces, they do their job. Why do we have to hero worship people for doing their job? We are very grateful. We worship only our parents, clergy (not cheewara dhareen, but pious priests), teachers (not tuition mudalalies) for their unpaid honourary work for the betterment of us. Also the winning war doesn’t give the whole Rajapakse clan a free pass to rob the country or to make opponents disappear. Just like you said, my Guru (teacher) name has trained my brain to see beyond the slave mentality.

    USA has done the “DEAL” to secure the “2/3rd” majority at the next Parliamentary Election for “MR/GR & Co. Inc”. In PM statement, he says: “The PEOPLE of this country must now decide how fair is this”. This is the real bait, that USA got “GR/MR” to swallow to secure the much delayed “SOFA” and “MCC”. Now the PEOPLE will forget all economic, social problems that have engulfed them and walk into the polling booth to mark “X” in the ballot paper for the “SLPP/SLFP” Sandanaya to give the “2/3rd” majority asking for in the name of protecting “War Heroes” Well done USA..

      Douglas,
      You are right. It is another political coup sponsored by USA, India and Mahinda-Gota camp. When Gota was released by USA, he must have signed an agreement to sign SOFA and MCC with USA and another agreement with India after they took power. Why it is now USA and its top secretary announcing that ban? Why not they didn’t sanction Gota or Mahinda? It is a victory for USA and India. Mahinda family benefitted lot from China during their first drama and now Mahinda family will going to benefit from USA and India. Poor Sinhalese masses have to put the “X” mark to whoever shout loudly “Mahinda is going to electric chair, Gota is going to electric chair, America is our enemy, Tamils are our enemy, ISIS is ready to capture Srilanka”.

    It’s time to kick the Tamil National Alliance out of Parliament. As they have clearly committed what amounts to treason. In any case, the TNA is not helping Tamils. If there were sanctions against Sri Lanka, there would be a backlash against the Tamils. Sanctions prevent the free flow of trade, resulting in higher unemployment and inflation.

      “It’s time to kick the Tamil National Alliance out of Parliament. “

      Good idea.
      It would be the beginning of restructuring the country into Fascist State. Assgiria has already granted permission to Gota and blessed him on his Aryan mission of the myth.

      “As they have clearly committed what amounts to treason.”

      So did Rajapaksas when they bribed VP/LTTE in order to rig the elections. How you have missed money laundering, tax evasion, …. financing terrorism, …. is not known.

      “If there were sanctions against Sri Lanka, there would be a backlash against the Tamils.”

      Are you organising one you stupid idiot?
      That would trigger the beginning of a serious international process to recognise two countries in one island.

      You should always remember 16 December 1971, and Lt. Gen A. A. K. Niazi.

      Are you a secret supporter of a separate Eelam state?
      Is this your hidden agenda or cunning plan to provoke another organised riots which you hope leads to separation?

      “Sanctions prevent the free flow of trade, resulting in higher unemployment and inflation.”

      Since Sinhalese are the majority the sanctions would result in more misery for the people in addition they suffer under the Sinhala/Buddhist majoritarian fascist government.

      Hindians have more sophisticated delivery system now than in 1987 to drop Chapati flour, and destroy all the key military installations within 24 hours.

      And the beggars go on begging for charitable donations from the country which does not have a single toilet for its people. Even recently Mahinda went to Hindia and begged forgiveness on Sri Lanka’s debts to Hindia, then converted to Sinhala/Hindutva in Kasi.

      Stop being stupid for a while.

        “That would trigger the beginning of a serious international process to recognise two countries in one island.”

        If International Community recognize two countries in one Island what would be the fate of Demalu and Demala speaking Muslims scattered all over the country. Will Wellala Demalu who are having a luxurious life in Colombo be willing to go to Yapanaya? Sambandan who got a luxury house in Colombo will also have to give up that house and go to the jungle in Tirikunamale.

        If the International Community or UN create problems, Sinhalayo will impose sanctions on ‘Para’ Demalu by boycotting Demala businesses and products from Yapanaya. After Muslim terrorist attack, Sinhalayo taught a good lesson to Muslims. We will do the same to Demalu.
        Sinhalayo can survive without Demalu and Muslims but Demalu and Muslims cannot survive without Sinhalayo.

        NV,

        “That would trigger the beginning of a serious international process to recognise two countries in one island.”

        This is the objective of Rudramakuran, Sampanthan, and Wigneswaran. To provoke the Sinhalese into attacking Tamils, so that Tamils gain sympathy from IC. It was the same strategy employed by VP. But it will not work, as the Easter attacks showed. There was no mob action against Muslims. Nevertheless, if there is a very long economic depression, it may not be possible to control the crowds.

        “Hindians have more sophisticated delivery system now than in 1987 to drop Chapati flour, and destroy all the key military installations within 24 hours.”

          Modi postponed/cancelled toilet building projects when he saw two brothers came one after the other with begging bowls from Tamraparni.

          He donated $450 millions and more when his National Security Advisor dropped in to give some advice to Gota and his goons, who couldn’t protect the churches even though Hindians gave them advance warning.

              He forgot to mention your stupidity.

              Read Excerpts from Mahinda’s interview with Hindu, FEBRUARY 09, 2020 :

              Hindu:
              No agreements were announced after your meeting, especially on the $400-million Line of Credit offered by India for infrastructure. Tell us about the talks.
              Mahinda:
              We did speak about several agreements and we have agreed to some of the projects that [the Indian side] were interested in. It was a fruitful and successful meet, for both sides, I would say. The housing project is something that is a priority area for us, and we asked for more funding for that. We have a new initiative to cover the whole country, every village, and we should like to get some support for that. Apart from housing, there were several projects we discussed.

              Hindu:

              Your biggest challenge this year will be servicing the domestic and foreign debt, which totals about $60 billion. How do you plan to deal with this issue?

              Mahinda:

              Yes, it is a worry. This is something we discussed with the Indian government as well, and have asked if we could get a moratorium on all loan repayments for three years, until we can revive the economy. If the Indian government takes this step, then other governments might agree to do the same thing, including China. The previous government took so many loans, they beggared the economy, and it is a mess. It all depends on the stand India takes.

                “No agreements were announced after your meeting.”

                When money is lent, it comes with conditions. Sri Lanka has not agreed to the conditions given by India for the loans. So you are talking about $400 million that Sri Lanka never accepted.

                This is the problem with you Eelamists. You can’t see beyond your backside. You believe everything a politician says. And fail to put statistics into context. Sri Lanka has $60 billion in debt, mostly from fighting kallathonie suicide terrorists. $400 million is 0.66% of $60 billion. It has no impact on the debt.

    Mahinda Rajapakse’s statement is ridiculous. The world knows the violations perpetrated by Rajapaksas’ siblings. People have not forgot the human rights violations perpetrated on former Chief Justice Shirani Bandaranayake. Even he went against the world by stating that he would give asylum to Col.Gaddaffi of Libya who had violated the human rights when USA launched an attack on Libya. He has a series of record of violating human rights and had become the country’s traitor. What was surprising he wanted to cheat Lord Thiruppathy also and made everyone a fool. He thinks so long as China supports him, he is not bothered without realizing that he has inherited the legacy of Coronavirus from China. It is in Sri Lankan flights that most of the Chinese flew both ways to Sri Lanka and China which includes the family members of his politicians. Now some hostesses are affected with coronavirus and admitted to hospitals. What is the guarantee that pillows, blankets, cups and other items in the Sri Lankan Airlines are not quarantined. Even hundreds of passengers in the cruise Princess are affected with Coronavirus. If Mahanayakas want to protest over the US ban on the Army Commander & his family, why can’t the Mahanayakas with other Buddhist priests with Mahinda Rajapakse and his followers go to China and preach Buddhist teachings and stick to non-violence instead of killing the patients. Is MR trying to conceal the truths exposed by Channel 4 News. Is MR trying to deviate the attention of the people from his past notorious actions by citing the International Covenants on Civil & Political Rights and blaming the Tamil parties & the UNP as traitors. The collective punishment would have been better if it includes other military heads & Rajapaksas’ siblings.

It is no surprise that much of the free thinking world has more than a sneaky suspicion of what the GOSL got up to in period 2006 to 2009, and particularly in 2009. Of course the GOSL – of whatever hue – will close ranks to defend the ‘brave ranivirus’ and whatever dastardly deeds they did. Fair enough.

SL is small fry with little clout in the grand order so the boys at the State department like to keep them jumping from time to time. The people in DC take full note of how SL will suck up to China when they want cheap jobs but at the same time keep friends and family on gated estates in the US and the west. (Talk of hypocrisy!) Can you name of any big wig who’s children are educated in China or Russia? No, our Sri Lanka patriots know where the fun is and to hell with being called unpatriotic – they hanker after Nibbana but they don’t want to take a chance so they indulge in the good life in the fleshpots of the west – on our taxes, mostly!

They were behind megalomaniac ‘Para’ Demala Piripakaran and his barbaric army LTTE when they went on slaughtering Native Sinhalayo to grab a piece of land from the Land of Native Sinhalayo and Vedda Eththo for the descendants of slaves from Hindusthan. UK allowed ‘Tamil Diaspora’ to have their Headquarters in UK and raise funds. Hindia trained and supplied arms to LTTE. USA wanted to save Piripakaran’s a@s and take him to a safe haven.

I will not be surprised to know, it is you and your brothers with the full knowledge of this outcome, intentionally nominated him in his current position ( dumb guy dosent even realize he is being used) , so that you can exploit his miseries to turn into sympathy votes. There is nothing collective about it. It was same for Russia, Venezuela, North Korea and Iran. US State Dept is not under one man,s control as in Silly Lanka. Was your in law Jaliya case a collective issue ??? US is a country where President Trump was recently impeached after a public house hearing where as you and your family are still governing Silly Lanka. Didnt you and your family protect a court sentenced rapist and murder, until UK, Royals and EU pressurized to take action????.

            Sankaralingam, how did you count the number of homeless in Colombo? Please provide a reliable source. It seems you are an expert at randomly adding zero to the ends of numbers. By the way, does the NHS do “sanity checks” when renewing medical licenses?

          Yes you can collect funds for them in London and go and build toilets for the homeless in Los Angeles. Why are the Chingkallams so obsessed with toilets and toilet cleaners? Is it because in the west , the middle east and in east Asia , they largely work as toilet cleaners. Due you work as a janitor in the London underground?

            ” Why are the Chingkallams so obsessed with toilets and toilet cleaners?”

            Chingkallams value hygiene and sanitation. When I first visited South India, the thala thel smell was horrible.As you go on the train in the early morning, you can see buggers doing their dirty work in the open. Rather than impose caste, the Aryans should have taught these Dravidian buggers to take a bath.

      “travel ban imposed by US on our Army Commander and his family!!!!!!”

      Just because the war criminal is your Army Commander the US has no compulsion to grant him visa? If he is a self respecting person, I doubt he is, would not have applied for a visa, instead he should have gone to China and fought the coronavirus with his Rana-viruses.

      Every country has its own criteria for granting visas.
      I understand Sri Lanka has recently refused to grant visa to an Indian academic and eminent scholar.

      Please stop being stupid and stop making much ado about nothing.

    Champa, you are right. Let all Silly Lankans ,especially the prelates, monks, Wimal, Goman hold black flags throughout, on the day of return,so that Trump can have a birds view from his AIR FORCE ONE.

    Before Sri Lanka starts crying for a war criminal’s family, because they cannot go to the US to do their shopping and socializing, it should first start crying for the thousands of families of the poor victims, who are missing and presumed killed, under the orders of this killer, who has yet to be held accountable, for crimes of torture, and rape, by his men. Let him face the accusations, and explain why there is blood on his hands, and let the families of the poor victims, have closure and answers.

    We are tired of war corrupt officials, crooks, and undesirables, and war criminals getting away with war crimes, and being rewarded for those crimes, with top appointments. It is strange that these officials blame, and attack, other nations like America for all their ills, but would not hesitate to fly there and do their shopping, get their goodies, and having a good time there.

    The traitors to the country are the ones who kill their citizens, and lie about it to their families. Traitors are the leaders who protect war criminals, and refuse to act like a democracy and hold them responsible for the rape, torture, and mass murder of Sri Lankans who were helpless and but were betrayed by those who should have saved them. The traitors are the leaders who are now expecting the country to forget the thousands of citizens who were killed, and ignore the cries for justice by their loved ones. Shavendra Silva and other war criminals, including the leaders who gave the order to massacre of Sri Lankan citizens, without any hesitation, should be treated like pariahs, at least abroad, at least they are getting a strong message, that it was WRONG.
