Desperate President Sirisena Preps For Secret Execution

Colombo Telegraph reliably learns that President Maithripala Sirisena is drawing up secret plans to execute the first Sri Lankan death row prisoner in nearly half a century in the name of boosting his image as a tough guy as he refuses to give up the dream of a second term in the presidency. Colombo Telegraph learns that he has issued instructions to carry out the first hanging in secret, with the Attorney General’s Department and Prisons Department involved in preparations for the execution.

President Sirisena

The execution would put an end to a 43 year-old moratorium on capital punishment in Sri Lanka.

It is said the first execution by hanging could happen as early as next week, as President Sirisena wishes to implement it to coincide with the Drug Eradication Week announced by the Presidential Task Force a shortly to be observed between 23 June and July 1.

Colombo Telegraph learns that a Deputy Solicitor General is handling the work relating to the legal formalities and international matters that could arise from the hanging. Two executioners who were recently hired by the Prisons Department are busy with “practice sessions” according to Government sources. An inexperienced executioner could perform a botched execution – if necessary weight is not applied, the prisoner’s neck may not snap clean, leading to a slow and excruciatingly painful death for the inmate.

Two Government Ministers have confirmed the President is planning the executions.

Sirisena has expressly told the officers involved that he wishes to carry out the first hanging in secret to minimize international pressure that might arise if news gets out about his plans. Presidential advisors claim Sirisena is determined to hang one prisoner at least before leaving office.

Sirisena has faced major local and international backlash in the past few months, since expressing interest in meting out capital punishment on those found guilty of drug related offenses.

During his visit to Kenya, Amensty International carried out a campaign against his dalliance with death penalty, carrying front page ads calling him out in all national newspapers.

        We, layLankans, agree with Rishard that CT addition “….the prisoner’s neck may not snap clean ….” is sensationalism. The neck should never snap clean.

          It’s the spine that snaps. When it snaps, it snaps. There is no clean about it. The phrase ‘snaps clean’ is scary even for the executioner unless Sira wants the criminal’s head brought to him on a tray.

            The Mahanayakes were collecting stones ……. they collected so many stones the Stone-Age nearly came to an end in Lanka. …….. The Cardinal was singing Ba Ba Black sheep and the Reverend was singing the chorus.

            Leave President Sirisena alone! ……….. What more do you want? ……… He is a very good Sinhalese-Buddhist, No? ………. Yes, No?

        This is supposed to be where the term ‘pulling one’s leg’ came from. If the execution was botched the hangman would garb the prisoner and pull him down so that his neck broke quickly. However the veracity of this is disputed.

      We the people that have been observing SIRISENA and his rule would love if the first to be hung up would hav ebeen SIRISENA himself.
      :
      It is also fair, his incability let take the life of over 250 injuring over 500 on the last easter sunday bombing.
      :
      Now all is becoming clear, none other than president of srilanka had been summersaulting regarding national secureity. His number one of his agenda was to attack his political rivals, and show off life styles. This bugger has abused state funds for his foreign trips, but nothing much brought to the country from any of the visits. :
      [edited out]should be hung by bringing to Galle face green if we the suffeerers to comfort us a bit. Not just sirisena, his family should be put in jail for abusing funds over the last 4 years. The presidency was on a head of a MEEHARAKA, now it has passed to a donkey… donkey s nose rope is controlled by former Meeharaka. so all these are just because of power gain struggle.
      We dont SIRISENA to be BEAHEADED that is it.

      I cannot stop laughing how this mass murder/ ISIS Bomb blast which killed over 200 innocent people were actually meticulously planned to cause mayhem in the country by obviously the sabotaging party . In fact it has back fired against the leaders , oppositions but the bombers themselves.
      Food for thought. Is SL turning the corner ?? Ofcourse the immediate aftermath was mayhem and confusion. Total annihilation of a race by these Buddha worshippers did not happen as it happened during Tamil Pogrom.
      Even if the Uneducated President still thinks he’s living in the dark ages as things happened since the Independence of total annihilation of certain groups behind closed doors?? He still thinks he can be a champion by executing a drug dealer or a mass murderer for his own selfishness….
      Does he know SL is being watched by the world??

      The reason behind the drama is the Nooze which is tightening against the Gota the Rowdy , and team is trying to divert from Human rights violations by US , mass murder while as foreign secretary and use of Billions of state funds used in building memorials for his parents!!

    The President will undoubtedly receive the wrath of Four Guardian Deities of Buddhism in Sri Lanka.
    This country has seen enough blood and deaths, you secular President.
    You and your Prime Minister saw to the deaths of over 370 people not two months ago by deliberately not taking any action to prevent suicide bombing.
    And then you two stalled the traditional practice of illuminating the country with Pandols and Vesak lanterns on Vesak Full Moon Poya Day and created a fear psychosis among people about a non-existent ISIS threat in order to prevent hundreds of thousand Buddhist devotees observing Sil in temples.
    That is not enough for you. Now you want to hang people to show the world that Lord Buddha’s teachings are no longer in practice in Sri Lanka.
    For God’s sake, resign and go home without making us see anymore government sponsored murders.

      can you tell me what Lord bhuddha’s solution would be if he was asked how to stop our youth destroying themselves with drugs.Lord Bhuddha was not governing a country.He was trying to show people how you can go up step by step to a higher level as a human being.If he was given the job of governing a country he would have been a misfit.There are different types of jobs requiring different types of people.

      I remember at one time when i used to walk the streets in philipines they would come up to me and ask whther i wanted to buy drugs.Now when i go nobody comes and talks such things.Nobody even talks among themselves about drugs.It is a taboo subject and you can feel the fear among the people regarding drugs.

      Never shed buckets of tears for perpetrators of crimes.Always shed at least a single small tear for the victims of crimes.If we all shed one single tear enough.

          we can instead of hanging them hand over them to the asgiriya chapter head monk,not for stoning,but to be converted into monks just like angulimala.So now all the criminals will become monks and there would be no need for jails anymore.
          ps.don’t you want to shed 999 teardrops for the people whom angulimala killed?Even monk angulimala or Lord bhuddha did not bring them back to life did they?
          Nobody talks about them,nobody weeps for them,all the talk only is about Lord bhuddha and the great deed of his converting angulimala to a monk.See the point.I want everyone to weep one single teardrop at least for that forgotten 999.

        Lord Buddha ran away from governing because he was a misfit. If every criminal is refirmed then that’s victory to the criminal system. Societies have long since transitioned from Crime and punishment to crime and rehabilitation if only it worked

        Why not?
        According to Mahahamsa Jataka of Kuddaka Nikaya, Lord Buddha has mentioned Ten Rules for Good Governance, which is known as “Dasha Raja Damma” (the Ten Duties of the King).
        According to Rig Veda, King Rawana, who believed to be in the period of Konagama Buddha, has ruled Lankapura according to “Dasha Rajna Buddha” (Ten Heads of Regents).
        Hindus, who could not understand the meaning of “the Ruler of Ten Heads of Regents” (the King who Ruled according to Dasa Rajna Buddha) apparently had thought King Rawana had “Ten Heads” and painted his picture accordingly.
        King Rawana didn’t have ten heads and he was also not dead. He was only unconscious. Even after 7000 years, during Dussehra festivities, Indian Prime Minister still shoot King Rawana’s effigy with an arrow.

        Perhaps he would have asked youth to continue taking sil every day without breaks, thus their mind will be preoccupied with his teachings/ lectures.Also he would have prevented politicians from attending the Sil to ensure no drugs are brought in.

              “Man, you have already ridiculed Lord Boddha when you said “If he was given the job of governing a country he would have been a misfit”

              i don’t know as much about buddhism as you,but did not lord buddha refuse to take up his father,the king’s offer to rule the kingdom.Also after he left the palace he never came back to rule the country.So it is very obvious that he was not interested in that particular job and his interests lay elsewhere.So where is the ridicule that you accuse me of when Lord Buddha himself has shown that he would be a misfit if he was asked to rule a country.You can’t do a job effectively if you have no interest in that particular field.I know of parents who are doctors terribly disappointed when their offspring does not show interest in medicine.If they force that child to do medicine he or she will become a misfit in that field,don’t you think?So what you call me ridiculing is the plain truth and i’am sure Lord buddha would not mind as he himself has said to always speak the truth.i think you may be a buddhist scholar or something,but also an idiot if you can’t see simple truths before your eyes.

              Now lets look at it from another angle.If Lord Buddha was really interested in this line of work and had accepted his fathers offer and ruled the kingdom,he may have gone down in history as a good ruler of a country.By rejecting that offer which was far below his standard he achieved something much more greater,than just being a ruler of a country.He saw suffering everywhre meditated for 49 days under a bo tree and achieved enlightenment.He was able to pass on that solution he had found to reduce one’s suffering and thus became someone who will be remembered for ever by a grateful people.

                Although both your comments addressed to me are too childish to reply, I would say this.
                I am not a Buddhist scholar. I have never even been to a Dhamma School. A considerable amount of knowledge of Buddhism I received from home when I was a kid and the rest was self-learning.
                There are no various angles to see, or nothing to assume or presume about the life of a Buddha.
                A Bodisathva is born to be a Buddha. Therefore, there is no way he accepts an offer to rule a kingdom.
                But, his teachings are a sure guide to rule a country that promotes Metta, Karuna, Muditha and Upekkha.
                It is Lord Buddha’s teachings that prevent our leaders become despots.
                In other words, they are controlled by Buddha.
                Lord Buddha’s guidelines of “Dasa Raaja Dharma” is to create a Buddhist Chakravarti who is powerful enough to preserve Buddhism and protect his country in equal measure.

        Actually, Ashoka, the greatest Indian emperor, did more to spread Buddhism than Buddha himself. He built 84,000 dagobas and sent his children as missionaries to Sri Lanka. Lately, there are some Eelamists who cry about a single temple being built in Mullaitivu after decades of LTTE apartheid rule.

          you are right.I forgot about ashoka.Without him i think we could forget about buddhism becoming what it is today.i wonder what made ashoka so passionate about Lord Bhuddha?It reinforces my belief that Lord Bhuddha just like lord Jesus and Lord vishnu was an avatar sent by god to fulfill a purpose.A powerful emperor is then entrusted by god to help spread his message.In the case of christianity the huge difference was when emperor constantine saw the cross in the sky when he was going to war and won the battle.From then on christians were not fed to lions and they were able to freely spread their religion.

            Shankar,

            Buddha did not claim divinity or believe in a creator god. This is called as “anatta” in Buddhism; e.g. there is no “atman” inside living things, as Vedas teach. However, rebirth is still possible in Buddhism, within the context of karma. Rebirth seems like a foolish idea, however, there is some scientific basis for this. Science cannot explain how a person can inherit personality traits from his parents. Or how a person can be so similar to ancestors from multiple generations ago. Or the case of identical twins, how can two people be so alike? Rebirth is based on the idea of karmic energy. Your next birth depends on your merits (or lack of) in previous births. Why did Buddha reject the idea of a God… because in Buddhism the Universe has always existed, therefore, there is nothing for a God to create. This view is also consistent with some new ideas in physics that deny there was a singularity, aka Big Bang.

            Most of all Emperor Ashoka didn’t have to look over his shoulders to see if democracy, Nagananda, Navi Pillai, human rights, UN, ……. UN charter were coming after him and his clan.

            Secondly he had the most efficient and ruthless religious police at the time.

            “It reinforces my belief that Lord Bhuddha just like lord Jesus and Lord vishnu was an avatar sent by god to fulfill a purpose.”

            It appears ultimately all of them have failed except those few who benefited in the names of god, through their agents, ……….. and most people have been paying the price for letting gods and their agents running their life.

            You had best Vesak this year? What do you mean? Only 60 something dansalas were registered where normally tens of thousand Dansalas are held on Vesak Day. No Pandols, empty temples and no-show of dansalas may be the best Vesak for non-Buddhists.
            How many poor children and adults could have had a nutritious meal for two days had there been Dansalas around the county as usual?

        So you seems to be a hanging judge.
        Americans have moved on since lynching days.
        Any chance you too are closely related to the former national hangman Gota?

        First they need to hang that puff faced clown overnight lawyer, Namal Rajapaksa then let this MR bugger live for one year to feel the pain of losing a child just like how thousands of Sinhalese and Tamils lost their lives in the hands of these animals. Then hang the bastard with his goon brothers one by one.

        Para Vedda,
        There are few guys who keep on calling ‘Para-Sinhala’. ‘Para’ in Sinhala means ‘Foreign’. Origin of Sinhalayo cannot be traced to a foreign country whereas there are ‘Para-Demalu’, Para-Muslims’ ‘Para-Malays’ and ‘Para-Veddas’ whose origin can be traced to foreign countries.

          Eagle Eye,

          It is so funny to see a Para, s Para-Sinhalaya call a Vedda , a Para-

          Is this a Para IQ problem?

          For your information, all Paras are Paras, and to call the Native Veddah Para is meaningless.

          You may say API Parayo, THOPI Veddo.

    Sillysena can’t afford to talk. He has failed the Sri Lankan people by not acting on all the intelligence he got about these extremists, and as a result of his incompetence, and negligence, hundreds of innocent people died. He should have apologized to the people in the country, and resigned. He has no decency, integrity, nor the honesty, to lead this country. He is miserable failure.

      Tara,

      Sirisena is a:

      1. Para-Sinhala
      2. Para-Buddhist, who follows MaRa-ism, that is an insult to the Buddha.
      3. Prostrates yo the Para-Sinhala Para-Buddhist Monks, who claim to be the third Gem of the triple Gem.
      4. The Para-Sinhala Para-Monks are an insult to the Buddha.
      5. Sirisena prostrates to the canine tooth at the Temple of the canine Tooth , and will not allow to be tested and carbon dated.

      So, there is no surprise given the above characteristics and training of Sirisena.

      Sirisena has also earned the Titles if Traitor, Sevalaya (sleaze ), Pachaya (liar), Mala-Pereyhaya (living off the dead) etc.

      He indeed fooled 6.2 million voters, the Trojan Horse, the wolf in sheep’s clothing.

    Maithiripala Sirisena, you are Buddhist. Please do not commit this sin. To make error is human, but to forgive is divine. Therefore do not deviate from the teachings of Lord Buddha.

        Whoever may be, he should be given an opportunity to realize his mistake. Since it is God who had given life, he has the right to take the life. God monitors every one. He knows what to do. We have taken a birth for specific noble mission which has to be accomplished without harming others. This is the teaching of every religion.

    Killing pabakakran and LTTE was war crimes. Hanging Drug Lords or Zaharan is against human rights. Who is crying for NAufer and Madus, Mangala, Ranil and Mahinda rajapakse.

    Only way to stop the corruption, social decay and deviants taking over is by carrying out death sentence.
    If this country wants to go anywhere we have to be firm on this.We cannot just ignore rampant perversion.

    Whether this man hangs all the death row prisoners or not, Sri Lankans have already decided what to do with Sirisena. After the next president comes to power, he should try Sirisena for criminal negligence and hang this idiot.

    There was a time when UNP John Amaratunge wanted to bring back hanging. At that time I said that if he wanted this then he should hang the first prisoner himself. The sob changed his mind, said the Sangha would never allow it and blamed them. Forgot that as a Roman Catholic his church would be against it too. But it was easier and more useful to blame the Sangha as usual. The same thing applies to Polonnaruwe Rajkeeya Vidyalye Sirisena. Let him hang the first man. It will never happen.

      “Let him hang the first man. It will never happen.”

      Does it mean you want him to commit suicide, I mean perhaps euthanasia assisted suicide?

      You don’t believe Gota makes good hangman?

      Don’t say anything, instead you could do millions of things.

      It appears that clash of religious conversion among various religious nuts is imminent in the east. What are you going to do about it? Are you looking for petrol can?

      Do you miss the Psychopath VP?
      Gnanasara, Gota, the clan seem to miss him.

    May be he wants to pick a leaf from Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte, who captured power on the theme of creating a ‘drug free country,’ and has in the process, executed around 7,000 of his own people in extra judicial killings, using informants, vigilante groups and police raids. It is true drug abuse is a social menace, and dealers are those who traffic to profit on human misery. But the process of execution must be used only as an effective tool such that it becomes a deterrent, and not for any petty political gain. If Sira is seriously concerned on public health, then pardon and rehab for addicts should also be on the cards. I sincerely doubt he has it in him to go through with an execution as his final act, just before his term ends.

    According to the constitution the president cannot execute people on his own. It also requires the consent of the justice minister.

    I fail to understand how an execution could be carried secretly. At least a week’s notice is required in actual practice. The relatives of the condemned have to be informed etc. Methodology in disposing the dead body of the executed must be known. In fairness to the MY3, a lot of praise from the general public came flowed in with his declared war on drugs mixed with the determination to carry out the execution of drug peddlers so sentenced, which was unanimously supported by RW and his ministers in Cabinet. But his erratic and unbecoming conduct caused much criticism and for actions what was praised before is seen in a different light. HIS retentionist policies were visible even during his elections campaign when he promised the maximum punishments for drugs, ethanol etc. Being a politician, HE would like to kill many birds with one stone and most of the actions either taken or contemplated can have an ulterior motive in most of the instances. Including myself for voting and chaps like Sarath Wijesuriya for campaigning were deceived by the MY3 +RW combine. Even RW should be held accountable for the actions of Sillysena as he showcased the man for his advantage. The ghost of RW’s uncle, JR, should haunt and every night the words “Ranil! You are a blundering clod!” must be heard loud and clear by the nephew.

    Those whom the God’s are about to destroy, are first driven mad.

    Sirisena is on his last legs, and he knows it. He will try anything to garner a few extra votes. If hanging is flavour of the month; hang.

    In truth, it will be WE the People who will do any ‘hanging’ – and it will be Sirisena’s neck that will be in the noose.
