Desperate Sirisena Faces One Embarrassment After Another – Pujith And Hemasiri Released!

Fort Magistrate today dismissed the murder charges brought against suspended IGP Pujith Jayasundara and ex-Defense Secretary Hemasiri Fernando, and released both on a surety bail of Rs. 500,000 each.

This is the second major embarrassment faced by Sirisena. Last week the Supreme Court issued an interim order against his plan to proceed with implementing the death penalty and today, his attempt to penalize two offiers who refused to help him cover up his culpability in the Easter Sunday bombings, were released by the Court.

Fort Chief Magistrate Lanka Jayarathne had dismissed AG’s charges against the duo Pujith and Hemasiri, stating there is insufficient evidence to justify their continued detention.

The two were arrested last week after AG issued an irked message to the media through his Coordinating Secretary, stating the Police had not put his instructions to action in arresting Pujith and Hemasiri before Court.

As per the charges that were brought against Pujith and Hemasiri by AG Dappula, if convicted, they could face the death penalty and up to 52 years in jail.

As per the AG’s letter to the Acting IGP about two weeks ago, sufficient evidence is available to charge Pujith and Hemasiri with below provisions of the Penal Code:
296. Punishment for murder.

298. Causing death by negligence.

328. Causing hurt by an act which endangers life or the personal safety of others.

329. Causing grievous hurt by act which endangers life or the personal safety of others.

    What was he thinking ???? Even a layman knows there is no evidence against either one to file a case.(let alone hearing). If above said charges are to be applied, it is MS who should be facing it, not anyone else. 1) causing death by WILLFUL negligence by deceiving, lying, not sharing the intelligence and obstructing national security. 2)causing injury and hurt by an act which endanger life of hundreds of innocent people. 3) punishment for murdering hundreds of people on the day of Easter. . F – – – – – G low life should be one , hanged in his own gallows. People who have drug and alcohol issues should be court mandated to receive medical treatment and not death sentence.

      Along with drug traffickers for drug trafficking by endangering our country and its people , The Head of a state too should receive SEVERE PUNISHMENT for Not acting after receiving IMMINENT DANGER Alert through security services yet the leader of our country ordered all other sources not to take action and left the country on a Family Jaunt.
      How Irresponsible is that??
      He should shoulder the Whole Blame for the death of over 250 men women and children.
      He is the Supreme Leader of this country! No other person could give the initial orders not even the PM who was not given the power to act when the President was out of the country.
      So who was in charge during the Easter Bombing??
      No one but the President who never gave the responsibility to any one else..
      Simple.
      He was too terrified to share the Power of running the country our country Srilanka.
      So don’t go looking for Tom, Dick, and Harry. But we all know who the destroyer of our nation.
      Point your Fingers at the Right direction, the only ONE PERSON that we all know who??
      The Leader of the Country who went on a jaunt without a care in the world was responsible for the 250 peoples death and injuries caused by one man’ s greed for Power!!!!
      The care of the country and its people came SECONDARY TO POWER GREED.

        Analyst: MS is culpable for the death by murder of the nearly 225+ innocent who lost their lives because of this imbecile’s inept nature. Please don’t forget this very fellow predicted sensation after the traditional new year on the eve of his departure to Bangkok and Singapore with his family! That alone is sufficient proof he had prior knowledge of the then impending strikes by a group he and his mate GR had nurtured and bred for their own political advantage. MS and et al cared less of innocent lives as long as they advanced their agenda to satisfy their greed for power and money making by 20% bribes.

      A man not even good enough to be Doratupalaya is made the head of state just by chance not having better choice by end of 2014. We were all blauaegig- dreaming of an apple tree would produce mango fruit went on risking it. Anyways to my memories the country had been ruined to the core by Rajapakse rascals. Whatever high crimes were underestimate d by them moving towards the gadafian or Mugabe style. That was caught by the criticism of West, America and any developed nations except China. Rajapakse was identified with the afro tribal leaders that were also naively caught by the debt trap of so called development projects of China. All these were but painted with in the country making Rajapakse as Unique. Even today stupid gullible people who are the majority are made believe the blant lies for Rajapakse s political survival.

        Blatant lies but being mixed up with the statements issued by so called high chapter but illiterate
        budhist monks could outreach the gullible gawk y people without much efforts. So that’s how the kind of public perception is being made doe there. Just imagine vthe young girl in Akmimana area was molested and raped down by that Pohotzuwa raththaran aka Pushpa Kumara_ is now being kept under carpet because the rapist’s activities are very important to Promotion of Pohotzuwa party. The same secret cover up mission is applied in whole scale drug business of Nimal Lanza in Negambo. Effect is similar to those destitute watching a film they in huge India dreaming of a better life. But we as a comparable y smaller nation why do we let Rajapakaehe to fool the easy targets of the country this way?where is the God or other powers towards the kind of permanent murderous leaders? Why our people should let be hoodwinked by them on and on. Why local media men let vicious politicians to mislead the nation this way? They are too complicit of the high crime. Letting people to get caught by the hoodwinked are equally criminal as the real criminals. The innocent people should be fed with truths and ground realities. Why is that blocked in the Island today?why can’t the authorities seek support from powerful countries in order to clear itforconce for all? Are we that helpless?

        NOT good enough to be evan a Doratupalaya?
        Then why did Luminaries lik Pakiyasothy Saravanamuttu, Kumar David, Jehan Perera etc., support this man? Why did the whole Western world, their top politcal advisors, Maduluwave Sobitha, Champika Ranawaka, Ven. rathan, and ex-leaders like Chandrika support this man?
        Why did the UNP, a venerable old party lead by the so-called “well-educated” and internationally linked Ranil Wickemasinghe endorse him as a Presidential candidate?
        How did Sumanthiran, Sampanthan and that whole TNA outfit support this man.
        How did luminaries like Ratnajeevan Hoole support this man?
        How did the SLFP, a powerful political force for decades allow him to be its general secretary- no mean job?
        Go back to Dec 2104 and see what most commentators in the Colombo Tele praised Sirisena sky high!
        It is amazing how our people say one thing one day, and another thing another day.
        The fault lies, not with Sirisena, but with our “opinion makers”.

          Bodin,
          We all supported MY 3 only b’cos he came out against MaRa. As I have been saying over two years since I realized that we have made a mistake, this selection must stand very good lesson in selecting candidates to vote for. The lesson: Never to vote for a candidate without having a very thorough review on his qualifications. Both MaRa & MY 3 have proved that selecting political candidates could be very tricky business. MaRa behaved like he was the best crusader for HR in SL before becoming the president. Majority of liberals voted for him based mostly on his HR record & his long experience in various cabinet portfolios. But once he became the Prez, he became the polar opposite of the previous image. It was somewhat different with MY 3 for nobody knew much about him. Here is the most astonishing eye-opener: After all the past bitter experiences with MaRa, if he get re-elected, it will be like handing over a Carta Blanca on a silver platter to repeat his record even more vigorously.

            He is totally.and singly

          “Go back to Dec 2104 and see what most commentators in the Colombo Tele praised Sirisena sky high!”

          I didn’t.
          In fact I cautioned the readers, especially Ben Hurling.

          Though Hopper Sirisena is another corrupt Sinhala/Buddhist bigot he was thought to be lesser evil than the ruling Rajapaksa clan, in fact useful idiot. That was more than enough to vote for the Hopper. The coalition of the willing managed to wrest the institutions of terror from Gota.

          Don’t you think what the coalition of the willing did at the time was crucial for reconstructing and reviving democracy in this island, albeit presence of Gota’s white vans?

      Sirisena is providing entertainment to the Paras.

      The Paras , mean IQ 79, are getting bored with the monks, priests, Ulama, the tele-dramas etc. and Sirisena is filling the void.

      A Land like no other where the President has to provide the entertainment .

      This is the circle of Sirisena.

      Says one thing.
      Announces another thing.
      Does something completely different.

      A Para-Sinhala Buddhist characteristic in the land of Native Veddah Aethho.

      Will Sirisena be reborn in another cursed land?

      Even some of the Para-Academics do that. They all need good science , reasoning and critical thinking training, even though the mean IQ is 79.

      Chiv,
      By ordering the arrest of these two knowing very well they followed his order to the word after he left the Country to save himself in case. Besides saving himself as the main person behind the April 21st serial bombings, he is also helping Gota by stopping them giving evidence against his long time postponed fraud case!. This is traditional Sri Lankan conspiracy politics.

    Oh dear! Duppula has been duped. Its funny how the AG’s office leaks their intentions to charge/arrest people giving them so much space to enter hospitals or fleee the country. Did the same for Avant- Garde a few days ago. Now Nissanka Senadipathi is keeping Gota company in a Singapore hospital. He has sent out a desperate appeal for war heroes to rally around him. He starts off his statement by saying: “I, Nissanka Senadhipathi, have shaped my life in line with the training I received as a soldier in the Sri Lanka Army Commando Regiment and my life’s motto is that of the Commando Regiment, “Nothing Impossible.” Senadhipathi had left the country even prior to the Supreme Court’s decision to dismiss 5 Fundamental Rights petitions filed by him and four others seeking an order preventing them being arrested by CID. BTW who were the “good doctors” who admitted pujitha and hemasiri to the ICU?

    During Sarath and Mohan , s time they took care of these fabricated cases (Dr. Shafi and this ) for their pay masters. But now it is not happening. Hence the urgency to bring Sinhala Buddhist Laws of Ganasara to replace the current ones. What a shit hole. Now lets wait for Mahendran,s verdict. Where as real murders are out there free making weekly foreign trips and holidaying , nominating them self for next presidency, when victims of Lasantha, Thaj and Trinco murders are still waiting for answers. “New Normal” for a shit hole country.

    Yes, if rationality and objectivity prevail, My3 should be arrested, and should be facing a host of charges.
    .
    In some moods, I feel that this was not the man I voted for in January 2015. Has he changed?
    .
    At other times, I see evidence that he’s selfish, arrogant and has managed to look after himself and his immediate family very well. Daughter Chathurkia seemed always to be reasonably intelligent, but Daham seemed such an ass. I seriously (and sympathetically) posted comments saying that he needed psychiatric help. Now he’s not only got married, but seems to have graduated from some place in London, judging by reports that My3 is to attend a convocation in England. One is always happy to see families doing well, but this is so inexplicable.
    .
    As for My3, with chaos here, he appears to be globe-trotting as never before.
    .
    By the way, is it correct to say that the prices of some medicines had doubled yesterday?
    .
    This surely can’t go on much longer without repercussions that gravely affect us all. So far, I’ve been surviving without any major difficulty (hardships we always had).
    .
    Heaven help us!

      Sinhala_man,

      “At other times, I see evidence that he’s selfish, arrogant and has managed to look after himself and his immediate family very well. Daughter Chathurkia seemed always to be reasonably intelligent, but Daham seemed such an ass.”

      From your camp (Sinhala Buddhists) all are same basket fruits. This basket is 2500 years old (even worse than Middle Eastern Dates) Now you lost appetite for Apple, so asking for Orange; latter you are going to go for Banana. You contend you were the one asked for Apple. It appears you to be rational. But the truth is they all fungus infected.

      Nagananda, New King, Old King, Ranil, Vaalaiththodam Jr, Rajitha, Old Brother Prince, ………………. There is not one single good fruit to pick up from your basket. I am one, have been openly suggesting call Britain again and see in they will come back to run Lankawe on a lease for another 200 year. If they are not, tell America to throw away the SOFA/VSA and submit a tender to run the country on lease base. Another alternate is approaching UN to too. Think about how Sri Lankan Air Line was doing when a British manager (Peter Hill) was running it. Your Children both now owes one and quarter million rupees (560,000X 2) for foreign countries. If a foreign manager manages, they may pay off the loan; have a decent job and peaceful life. Only loss for you will not be able to use your Sinhala Buddhist extremism if external managers manage the country. Make up your mind to Exchange that loss for better life for your kids’ kids.
      Pretentious good is no good man. That is only techniques all Lankawe politicians, including you, know.

      Sinhala Man,

      Do you think rationality and objectively are characteristics of Para-Sinhala Para-“Buddhists”?

      Their measured mean IQ is 79. This is called the Para-disease . The generic testing has shown that the mitochondrion frail DNA is proof that they are Paras from India.

      The cure us is to send all the Paras back to their homelands.Start with Sirisena and Ganasara monk. Then can start with some academics , Prof Raj Somadeva,who now claim that the Ancestors of Native Veddah Aethho are the Ancestors of the Para-Sinhala as well.

      Earlier, they claimed that the Para- Sinhala originated from lion genes.In fact, a Para-academic, Eduriweera Sarathchandra, produced a drama Sinhabahu, to make that point. Did you see that drama?

      Years ago, Amarasiri conferred the Titles of Traitor, Sevalaya(sleaze), Pachaya(liar), and Mala-Perethaya ( living off the dead).

      A Land like no other, where the Paras rule.

      Heaven help us, to send the Paras back to their homelands.

        Amarasiri,
        “The generic testing has shown that the mitochondrion frail DNA is proof that they are Paras from India.”
        Of course Demalu are ‘Para’ but not Sinhalayo. I suggest you read that article you referred carefully. The conclusion of that DNA research is:
        “No definite association of the Sinhalese with any specific ethnic or linguistic groups of India was, however, detected in this study; thus, their exact immediate origin on the mainland remains yet to be confirmed.”
        I went through several other studies but none of them have concluded that Sinhalayo came from India. Similarities in DNA could be due to biased sampling. If you are dumb not to accept scientifically proved evidences about the history of Sinhalayo in this country, there is nothing we can do. We can take the horse to water but we cannot force the horse to drink water. You are free to hang on to the myth that you are pushing hard to establish that Sinhalayo are ‘Para’. Prof. Raj Somadeva and few other archeologists have shattered your myth in to pieces.

        As far as I can see the objective of repeating this ‘Mantra’ ‘Para Sinhala’ is to tell the world that both Sinhalayo and Demalu are ‘Para’ (foreign) to this country and therefore Demalu have a right to demand a part of this country as a separate State. Demalu do not have a ‘Traditional Homeland’ in Sinhale. They are definitely ‘Para’.

          you para-sinhalehyo buddhist why did you marry a para-demulu woman?
          Is it because non of the sinhaleyo parents wanted you for a son-in -law? They must have known what a paraya pimp you are. Unfortunate your demulu wife has to sell her body to support you a para-sinhaleyo pimp. BTW when is the hearing of the pimping charges brought by the Melbourne police against you, its going on for a long time now.

          Eagle Eye

          What Amarasiri is saying is absolutely correct, he is calling both Sinhalese and Tamils as Para because he must have definitely read the Sinhala Mahavamsa which says the Indian Vijay and his men came here in a boat and created the Sinhala race.

          Exactly like what the Sinhalese are told to believe (right from birth) that they are natives very similar to the Veddas and all others are Para (outsiders/immigrants), the entire Tamil population of North & East believes (right from birth) that they are the original natives of the island along with the Veddas and all others including the Sinhalese are Para (outsiders/immigrants). There is a Tamil saying “Vijayan odu Vadakil irrindu vanda Paradesi Chingalam” meaning Para Sinhalese who came from North India with Vijaya. In otherwords, they call the Sinhalese as Paradesi Chingalam (who came from India along with Vijayan). Just like you call them Para Demulu, they call you Paradesi Chingalam (Indian Vijayan’s people).

          Journal of Human Genetics on the island populations says, the Sinhalese gene pool has a North Indian contribution of 25.41% and South Indian contribution of 69.86%. No wonder the NE Tamils believe/say, ‘Paradesi Chingalam who came from India’. What else do you need when your own Pali chronicles is giving enough evidence to prove it.

          Prof. Raj Somadeva was made the big boss of the archeological department by the previous government with a hidden racist agenda, to create a non-existed ancient history for the island, to contradict the Pali chronicles and to show that the Sinhalese are the original natives, they did not come from India as mentioned in the Pali chronicles and Prof. Raj Somadeva is overdoing it shamelessly.

        Dear Amarasiri,
        .
        I knew that we were lacking in many ways, but not to this extent.
        .
        I think I saw Sinhabahu many times before all these electronic media took over. It was good entertainment. After the “Wala Performances” all undergrads seemed to be singing the lyrics for weeks. When it was composed I don’t think it was imagined to be the literal truth.
        .
        By 1983, Sarathchandra had long retired, but a handful of us had lectures on at least ten days with him. Those of us who were specialising in English had a “background” paper. Sarathchandra dealt with the Sinhala Drama part of it, but we had been warned to take what he said with a pinch of salt – and to ask searching questions.
        .
        We had to study Tamil background as well – with all the arson going on! Multiple ironies; may Heaven help us indeed.

          Dear Sinhala Man,

          Prof. Sarathchandra, with his Sinhabahu Drama, became another promoter of the Deepawansa and Mahawansa myths. How many of those arts undergrads, imbibed in the Mahawansa myths at home, at the Temple, Daham Pasala and at school were able to recognize the lion myth, when they watched the “Wale Sellama”? The arts undergrads generally have very little science background and knowledge, and their IQs, were at the low end of university IQ distribution.

          One wonders , even if Prof.
          Sarathchandra understood the gravity of his Sinhabahu myth drama, given the Sinhala Buddhist racism against the Tamils, a central theme of Mahawansa.

          That was the era of Lion myths, busted by modern science and genetics. In any case, Mahawansa accepts Sinhala to be Paras, as the Native Veddah Aethho were already there.

          Now a new set of Para-Sinhala “Academics” are discarding the lion myth, and replacing that with a New Hypothesis that the ancestors of Native Veddah Aethho and Para-Sinhala are the same, and therefore the Para-Sinhala are not Paras. This is promoted by Prof. Raj Somadeva, an anthropologist at the University of Kelaniya, who selectively ignores or due to lack of understanding of modern genetics , the mitochondrial DNA data, that conclusively show that the Ancestors of Native Veddah Aethho are Not Sinhala.

          What is the political and racist motive behind ignoring the scientific data ?
          Prof. Sarathchandra’s Sinhabahu again, in the 21st Century?

          • 1

            Amarasiri,
            We like to ask what is the racist motive behind to ignore the conclusion arrived by the research conducted by:
            Ranaweera, Lanka; Kaewsutthi, Supannee; Win Tun, Aung; Boonyarit, Hathaichanoke; Poolsuwan, Samerchai; Lertrit, Patcharee (2014). “Mitochondrial DNA history of Sri Lankan ethnic people: Their relations within the island and with the Indian subcontinental populations”. Journal of Human Genetics. 59(1): 28–36.
            Their conclusion is:
            “No definite association of the Sinhalese with any specific ethnic or linguistic groups of India was, however, detected in this study; thus, their exact immediate origin on the mainland remains yet to be confirmed.”
            In a research, the researchers use various data, analyze them and draw conclusions. Instead of focusing on the conclusion which is the most important part in a research you pick up data from here and there and use for your purpose which is not scientific at all.

            As far as I can see your racist motive in repeating this ‘Mantra’ ‘Para Sinhala’ is to tell the world that both Sinhalayo and Demalu are ‘Para’ (foreign) to this country and therefore Demalu have a right to demand a part of this country as a separate State.

                Did you mean South India, East India, Orissa or Bengal? EE might try to sneak into a Native Veddah Aethho cave, with Prof. Raj Somadev, the “Academic “ “Anthropologist “ and deposit some Para-earthenware, and claim that it was a Para-Sinhala cave from 125,000 years ago.However, their mitochondrial DNA is still Para. Molecular genetics is busting the new Para- myths.

                  Amarasiri,

                  Prof. Raj Somadeva is one of the top class jokers in the academic circle of Sri Lanka and is highly ridiculed by most of the researchers and scholars in the same field. His so called ‘reaserch’ is fully biased and based on pure assumptions. He is contradicting all the other researchers in the same field. Also, he is only an archeologist and not a geneoligist but he talks more about genes than stone archifacts.

                  A very small Vedda contribution to the Singala gene must be due to the inter-marriages between Sinhalese and Veddas. R. L. Spittel (Wild Ceylon) also comments on this large-scale intermarriage between Sinhalese and Veddas. Veddas gradually became Sinhala-Buddhist when the vast area of the Western, Sabaragamuva, Uva and Kandyan regions were converted into rice cultivation after the fifteenth century consequent to the emergence of Buddhist states in those areas.

                  The archaeological record dates human habitation to around 125,000 years. mtDNA evidence provides dates from 85,000 and 65,000 years. The discovery of 30,000 years old Balangoda man is evidence of pre-historic mankind in Sri Lanka (Fa Hien-lena near Bulathsinhala, Batadomba-lena near Kuruwita, Beli-lena at Kitulgala, Alu-lena at Attanagoda and so on). There would have been many ancient tribes and civilizations in the South Asian region (India and Sri Lanka) very similar to other countries like Africa, China and so on but most of them disappeared over time. The last of them in Sri Lanka are the Veddas (most probably the descendants of the Balangoda man) but however, they have very little to do with the present day Sri Lankan population (Sinhalese and Tamils). In other words, the present day Sinhalese and Tamils are NOT the offsprings of the pre-historic generation of Sri Lanka.

                    The present day population (Sinhalese, Tamils and Muslims) are migrants and their ancestry is in India. Only the Veddas are the original natives of Sri Lanka who descend from the pre-historic people of Sri Lanka.

                    In an interesting findings it was also found that the Sinhalese and Sinti Roma (Telagu speaking ‘Ahikuntaka’ community) also have a high frequency of Haplogroup R2 (38% and 53% respectively) (Sengupta, S; et al. (2006), The American Journal of Human Genetics 78 (2): 202–21). These findings point to a multi-faceted origin of Sinhalese and the other ethnic groups with a similar genetic pattern of mixed genetic background.
                    You will never find a Sinhalese by digging into their DNA/genetics because the Sinhalese are a heavily mixed population. There is nothing called a pure Sinhalese. They are mixed people from Bengal, Orissa, Andara, Tamil Nadu & Kerala. The present Sinhala population is categorized as follows:

                    If a person’s mother tongue is Sinhalese and if s/he follows the Buddhist culture then that person is a Sinhala-Buddhist. If a person’s mother tongue is Sinhalese and if s/he follows the Christian culture then that person is a Sinhala-Christian. If you dig into the DNA/genepool of any Sinhala person, you will find something very strange due to heavy mixing. Genetic studies is good for some educational purpose but it will not help with the present ground situation.

                    Some Sinhala/Buddhists believe Buddha (the Awakened One) was a Sinhala/Buddhists, was born somewhere near Bauddhaloka Mawatha while tracing their ancestry to such Aryans as Hitler, ….K B Hedgewar,
                    M S Golwalkar, Nathuram Godse, …. and the first Aryan Anagarika Homeless Dharmapala.

                    Please comment.

                    Do you believe Champika, Wimal, the Arsonist Dutta Gamani, …………. are/were Sinhala/Buddhists Aryans too?

              The entire Tamil population of North & East believes (told right from birth) that they are the original natives of the island along with the Veddas. They call the Sinhalese as Paradesi Chingalam (who came from India along with Vijayan). Just like you call them Para Demulu, they call you Paradesi Chingalam.

              What Amarasiri is saying is correct, he is calling both as Para because he must have definitely read the Sinhala Mahavamsa which says the Indian Vijay and his men came here and created the Sinhala race.

              Journal of Human Genetics on the island populations says, the Sinhalese gene pool has a North Indian (Bengali) contribution of 25.41% and South Indian (Tamil) contribution of 69.86%. No wonder the Jaffna Tamils say, Paradesi Chingalam came from India.

                Dear “Desi”,

                This nonsense about Sinhalese sharing a 69.86% genetic affinity with Tamils is Eelamist propaganda based on outdated studies from 1995. In fact, Sinhalese only share a 16% genetic affinity with Tamils. Kindly refer to the Wikipedia article “Genetic Studies on Sinhalese.”

                A genetic distance analysis by Dr Robet Kirk also concluded that the modern Sinhalese are most closely related to the Bengalis.[1]

                This is further substantiated by a VNTR study, which found 70-82% of Sinhalese genes to originate from Bengali admixture:[4]

            “This is promoted by Prof. Raj Somadeva, an anthropologist….who selectively ignores or due to lack of understanding of modern genetics…..”
            As far as I know, Somadeva is an archaeologist & I am surprised to see him cited as some kind of expert on genetics, etc. That’s not his field at all, unless he’s started to branch out.

              Prof. Raj Somadeva is known more for his Sinhala/Buddhist academic nationalism than for his impartial analysis, interpretation, discussion …. and conclusion.

              He was employed to study the skeletons from (Gota’s) pits in Matale and Mannar. Not many people are happy about his approach.

              When the entire country and its institutions are being systematically politicize/communalized, it is unfair to single out an archaeologist.

          Dear S_Man,
          I think that the debate about the ethnicity of the first settles & their relationship to current ethnic groups has no meaning whatsoever. First, I must say that, a pointed out before as well, despite the strenuous archaeological researches Raj Somadeva has carried out, his narrative raises to serious doubts scientific validity of his approach. The biggest weakness in his narrative is the appearance of an effort to make a social & political case than a scientific statement. I say this b’cos he is conspicuously omitting other possible alternative explanations in order prove his hypothesis that the humans who left some artifacts on the Southern beach 125, 000 years ago are responsible for establishing a continuous progressive culture of ethnic group called Sinhalese in modern SL. One strong challenge to Raj’s hypothesis the strong possibility of waves of migrations mixing with “not very diverse primitive local cultures” (cultural continuity with discontinuous populations). The legend of a human like group with short stature quite similar to Homo Florensiansis found in Indonesia is a possible proof for humans with different affiliations had migrated to this island from time to time. It is very unlikely that any of the human “varieties” or populations at that moment of history diverged significantly from each others culturally. Secondly, SO WHAT! In this world where HR is the most fundamental value, politically speaking, who cares which ethnic group has a deeper history!

    now back to square one.One is going to be offered deputy high commissioner UK and the other deputy high commissioner germany.These are new positions created for them.One catch.have to make a statement saying they are taking full responsibility for easter bombings.The whole purpose of the arrest exercise knowing well its limitations, was the softening up process for the statement.

    ps.that will also not work as the two will say sira have a bath in your well.then back to square one.

    I think we need not to worry too much about Sirisena and his actions. He is already going through the jail sentance. I am sure he is now under the full control of some powerful people and his life must be under real threat. He must be completely powerless.

    What bothers me most is the apathy and callous attitude of our immoral citizens of a dysfunctional country. If this would have occurred in any part of the world (third world, underdeveloped or Africa) there would have been some form of protest or anger shown by the public. Where as in our shit hole country some civil activist wrote a op- ed letter and that is it. But the same bigoted public is itching to attack the minorities/Muslims. Not only the culprit continues as President he tries framing others and thinking again of presidential candidacy. Today he appointed yet another security advisory board lead by Amunugama (the real purpose of former fake foreign minister is damage control at diplomatic level) to advise him on security matters when he himself is not disclosing intelligence to security. Is this a Joke or what ??? Lunacy in Lanka has no limits.

    The two were released on bail. CT has gone into low grade sensationalising of routine processes in courts.
    If at all it is the AG who must be embarrassed. Even critics of MS may ask “Why should he be?”
    Answer expected CT.

    What an insane idiot Sirisena is should be put in the gallows. He has plenty of enemies who will wait till he looses power to deal with him appropriately. He has absolutely no chance coming back. He will destroy the Sri Lanka Family Party along with its members.

    The cardinal must be a disappointed man. He is yet to explain how it was that god couldn’t prevent two terrorists walking into two churches and not far from the altars blasted 250 catholics out of existence. What do the philosophy and theology he learned say about this? He was in the security council meetings by invitation, but was quick to blame those who were deliberately kept out. So far he has blamed only men. If it was only possible, those who perished would have cried out “Father, let this bitter cup pass from me” but they were killed instantly.

      Clean Slate,
      His Eminence Cardinal Ranjith is not a disappointed man, you are a disappointed man because you have no damn idea what you are talking about. Probably you are not a Roman Catholic so you have no idea about Catholic doctrine or doctrinal matters.
      Leave God alone because the Almighty is not there to satisfy your whims and fancies.
      I will not go into detail to explain to a wanker like you as to what God can do and will not do because like the politicians of your land your brain is in buried deep in your shitty anus.
      Please repeat please continue to eat your kotthu rottis and not worry about the Cardinal and his matters. Those matters are between him and the Almighty whom he serves.
      Shall end now and by the way stop looking at Porn on your mobile phone because it will not get you anywhere and Oh !!!!! stop wanking off at night. It is bad for health.
      Sri Lanka a lovely land, a great land of beauty and potential but a pity that imbeciles like you survive there.

    It must be recalled that one of these Officers made a statement that he was offered an Ambassadors post
    should he take the blame and resign over the 21/4 incident at the ongoing Inquiry.

    Could it be that MY3 left on a family Pilgrimage to India being aware of this occurrence during his absence,
    but as it did not occur within his timetable, he himself rushed to Singapore giving extra time to these
    terrorists? Investigations could be made if the travel arrangements of this extra holiday were made late or was planned earlier, (with the trip to India) which may indicate some hidden agenda in MY3s movements during this period. Some food for thought. Where are the Investigative Journalists?

    Blind eagle, enough of your research and enough of your history. Somadeva is another biased, misled sinhalaya and your archaeology is a totally distorted version manipulated by racism and buddhism. Less you speak the better. May be Sinhalayas are unique today owing to their stupid behaviour, attitudes, inability, ignorance, inability to rule, inability to value Buddhism, inability to do justice, and so on. But sadly they are the natives too originated from Veddas, Nagas, Yakkas and Indians and Malayalis. It is sad that we have to accept these guys as one of us but truth has to prevail. This Moda Eagle is stuck in racism and ignorance and even talking of research publications and mitochondrial DNA and what not. Moda Eagle, before all that you must be able to think rationally and logically without bias or racism or more importantly without such an extreme degree of Inferiority Complex and Morbid Jealousy and fear of the unknown. Somadeva, Mahanama, HLD, Bling Eagle, Gnanasara, Weeramonkey, Gamon-Pulle, etc are all with the same fear and the warped mindset. Fear…fear…fear…! Moda Eagle, who is Ravana, Vijayan, Buddha, Banda, Nayakkas, Vaduvas? In one way you guys are unique no doubt but yet who are you, where did you come from, what original history you had? All Buddhist monuments are from India and built by Indian sculptures and artists. Dagobas from India. Pali from India.

    The scoundrel Dippula De Livera should be hung drawn and quatered for his despicable act of paving the way for the arrest of these two public servants. I would like to hear from the speaker how he managed to recommend this scumbag for the post of AG and his boss as CJ both these scoundrels are asking for it. As for Sirisena a suitable new medieval punishment needs to be invented slow and excuriating.

    I thought of letting you know this too. All I said was that the cardinal hadn’t explained the carnage of Easter Sunday from a religious perspective although he has been eloquent about the political aspect of it, and wronging even there by accusing those kept away from national security deliberations. I think there is nothing wrong in people asking the highest Christian in the land to explain. I had not used accusatory or inflammatory language. But your response contains utter filth even when you want to defend a Christian prelate.

    You seem to be a son of a British planter who got the sudden urge to cohabit with an Indian
    tea plucker under a tea bush. Though you have a British name, your mother’s genes seem to predominate in you. Her close relatives are known rather humiliatingly as ‘sakkilis’. I have called me a ‘wanker’. Yes, I have wanked. That’s how god transforms males from boyhood into adulthood. At first involuntarily and nocturnally, but later as fancy took me. As you have not gone through this natural process a boy undergoes, I think seriously that you are of questionable gender. Although it is not known how your front is constructed your posterior does seem to contain a rectum and an orifice. This is certain because you talk so much like an absolute, unmitigated and irreducible Ar***ehole.

    By the way if ‘you’ have children and they call ‘you’ daddy, you could always see a smile on your neighbour’s face.

    Fred Perry, I don’t think wanking is bad for health. By the way do you know what happens between god and catholic Vatican. The sexual crimes, financial crimes, murders, homosexuality, child abuse, and all other crimes are routine within Vatican. Vatican is the biggest organisation for money laundering and an agent for Mafia. In the name of a God and Jesus the guys are playing hell behind the walls abusing the diplomatic immunity. The most corrupt establishment on earth exploiting the stupid catholic gullible. The Cardinal fellow is only an agent who is also abusing god and Jesus for his betterment. There is nothing to be proud of this god or Jesus.
