Despite The Drama, Keheliya Knew All About Nonis’ Assault

Despite the drama staged by Media Minister Keheliya Rambukwella last week when questioned about Chris Nonis’ assault and subsequent resignation, he had been well aware of the saga all along as his daughter Chamithri Rambukwella had been present at the scene.

According to the Sunday Times political column, following are the officials who had attended the social gathering at the New Jersey residence of Dilan Ariyawansa (representative of Sri Lankan Airlines in New York) where Sri Lanka’s High Commissioner to the UK – Chris Nonis was assaulted by External Affairs Monitoring MP Sajin de Vass Gunawardena.

– Thanuja Geethendra Usliyanage, Minister (Political) – Sri Lanka Embassy in Washington DC

– Chamithri Rambukwella

Nonis had been verbally abused and had been assaulted that night by Vass. Due to hearing difficulties that Nonis experienced after the assault, he had proceeded to a New York hospital to get himself examined.

However, Vass has rejected these claims and has maintained that he never assaulted Nonis.

Meanwhile, it has been reported that an infuriated President Rajapaksa instructed External Affairs Minister GL Peiris, to accept the resignation letter of Nonis on Friday while they were on tour to the Vatican for an audience with the Pope. Rajapaksa had been irritated with Nonis about him raising the slapping incident with Cardinal Malcolm Ranjith, which led to Vass being prevented from meeting the Pope.

Colombo Telegraph was the first to report on Nonis being assaulted. President Rajapaksa attempted his level best to prevent the slapping incident form being reported in media. Upon his return to Colombo from New York, he took immediate steps to speak to all media institutions to ensure the incident was not reported. Despite his best efforts however, the story broke out in several websites but all of them have refrained from naming the assaulter as Vass.

    Keheliya the [Edited out] and serial [Edited out] is another nut case and UNP should be happy to let guys like him and Johnie etc to cross into the Medamulana camp.

    Isnt it his daughter that was [Edited out] in NY or shavendra tried to take sexual advances from her?

    This Kehel family is also a showcase of the Sri Lanka affairs with the son once tried to pee from a plane on his flight path by opening the door mistakenly for the lavatory.

    We may wrong., it may be a DNS issue of the family that this chick too did a sleep walking at the time Sajja Gonwardana hit Nonis on his cheek.

      “Despite the drama staged by Media Minister Keheliya Rambukwella last week when questioned about Chris Nonis’ assault and subsequent resignation, he had been well aware of the saga all along as his daughter Chamithri Rambukwella had been present at the scene.”

      “However, Vass has rejected these claims and has maintained that he never assaulted Nonis.”

      So, there are so many eyewitnesses, but all were and are shills.

      So, the shills lie, but one-shill must have spilled the beans…

      Dr. Noonis,,, has a swollen face and cannot hear the shills well… so .. it is best to resign,,, because if I doi not hear the other shills well, they will beat me up again and MaRa will not do anything… and will go and visit the Pope to buy indulgences FDR the sins. and…. and….

    Truth to be told, Nonis did business of his Macwoods company misusing the position. Courtesy brother Lorenzo.

    Concerned Sri Lankans in the UK pointed out that according to Government Establishment Code (Chapter XXX titled ‘Rights of Government over its offices’: Sections 1:1 and 1:2), “a government official cannot engage in any other business”.

    They quoted the relevant sections: “The government has a total claim to the time, knowledge, talents and skills of its officers and their salary is fixed on the assumption, unless specifically provided for otherwise. No officer may take part in the affairs of any commercial or business undertaking or of any firm carrying on any description of professional work”.

    One of the key questions asked from prospective candidates under ‘Future Employment Relationships’ is – “will you sever all connections with your present employers, business firms, business associations or business organizations if your proposed appointment is confirmed?”, they pointed out.

    No difference between MR’s brother-in-law Jaliya doing his tea business misusing the US embassy.

    Same lot.

      Jaliya was not even Ol PASSed person to handle washington office while Dr CN is a learnt physician. So you cant compare both in this way. One thing is for sure clear, that Rajapakshes have no wisdom in terms of foreign affairs, but more in terms of killing and harm being done to the powerless innnocient folks of this island. Be them Tamils, Muslims or other minorities or even sinhalese that go against Raja are the victims. All these people shold be made clear with the fact and figures the danger being made right at the moment

        The qualification are secondary in the selection of shills, cronies, etc. What is primary is loyalty the master, not to the country…

          What I raise always is why the majoirty within UPFA stay mum even today, while Mervin the bad mouth has opened up saying that he is not given the freedom within UPFA for the last 1.5 years.
          Mervin was a senior model to Vaas Gunawardhana type baggage boys – he even attacked former PRESIDENT CBK publicly going through the agendas of MR murderous underground net works.
          All these bunch should be brought before the courts, as JVP clearly point out once the administration is changed.
          Today tabloid says that Lankens in EUrope support Rajapakshee – see the buggers repeatedly abuse the nation telling lies. I really dont know anyone who would say yes to MR administration in Europe. Having lived on the west for the last 3 decades, I know what these people feel. It is just because the country is sold out to the chinese having gotten the roads done cant be the only thing people to see it as good done by a govt. Just doing so, abusive men to earn their commissions while letting all the ways open crimes to rise rapidly as no other times in the past – and not respect and dignity have been part of them –

          If you build a house, you defniintely need skilled workers to see things becoming real with the time. In the same manner, you need to know learnt well experieneed men and women to repsresent the nnation to the outside world. And it should be the mirror image of the internal politics. This bunch of robbers in power have proved the world that they are all ill educated bunch to have appointed unlernt men and women as if they thought it is the manning market of Pettah- BUT THE learnt men like DJ or RW did not do their job either – until last week nor did Nonis appu. This is the ground reality, the house built by these unlearnt men are almost broken to this day – coming ahead will reveal more perhaps much quicker than we wever thought: jaya niyathai pals, ballige puthas in power would not earn second chance. The thoughts and minds of the people would dissapear soon asking themselves why their voting power to be used further to support sinhala abusive men that have no hearts.

      F you F. You are paid by MR/SVG/KS to discredit Nonis? What about all the business that KS and her husband were doing in London using her position as HC, including selling state property certain high powered politician? Who is going to slap them and Jaliya? You better volunteer to deliver the slap.

      “a government official cannot engage in any other business”
      Then how do many MPS continue to practice at the courts as lawyers, often in cases where they are poltically compromized?
      This began in the days of G.GPonnambalam, SJV, Colvin R de Silva and others. Our tamil MPS wre living in Colombo and in Hulsdorf, and ran the Northern electorates as abasntee landlords. That has been the tragedy od the tamils.

        Unfortunately, the decency that we enjoyed then is taken away by Rajapakshe administration. So, we have to treat them in the very same we the average folks are being treated.

          Today under the guidance of [Edited out] Rajapaskehs

          a) Hate speeches are held by not anybody else, country buddhist monks with the direct support by Rajapaskehs – they just behave as if their intentions are to divide the nation further – nothing is not even taken serious

          b) Women are beaten as no other times in the past – as got to see on tv screens lately, there is no law and order, fi there are that is just limited to poor of the poor while those who have links with Rajaakshes and their goons enjoy the impunity

          c) They live like middle east billionaires while the average folks of the nation struggle for their daily 3 meals.

          Why do they abuse this much – as other leader did it in the past is not questioned by senior public servants today – because most of them are kept in fears. People in general are feared of Rajapakshe Draculas.

          d) Telling the palatable, but doing the all abusive – beyond all bearing are the agendas of once Beliaththa thugs Rajapakshes – latest being
          importing unbearabably expensive AIRBUS appartment as if we the developing nation have no other worries – it is just because MR has no vision and wisdom.
          e) Indian leaders can afford things as the westerners would do – but do the indians act so ? NEVER, why cant our buggers learn the lessions from big brother India ?

        Very good one.

        I take it that you Tamils are the descendants of Egyptian god Osiris and his sister Isis.

        Here is some thing that you might have overlooked:

        Osiris had united in love with his sister Isis while still in the womb, and in the fullness of time he married her and became king of Egypt. Together they led the Egyptians out of their crude and backward way of life. Osiris abolished cannibalism, established laws, and showed the people how to grow crops and revere the gods, while Isis taught women how to spin and persuaded the men of the advantages of married life. Osiris then set out to travel over the world, teaching the virtues of civilized life wherever he went, leaving the rule of Egypt to Isis.

        http://aeonist.tumblr.com/

        You Thamizh have been civilizing the entire world from the begining of time itself. Then you taught the Venga people all about incestuous relation, bestiality and parricide.

        I am very proud of your people.

    Of course Kehelmalla knew within minutes of the incident taking place (what do you think, that Chami is there just to look pretty? However, he can only say what he is allowed to say by kind permission of his puppet masters. This is how free speech operates in our thrice-blessed land.

    Those who watch our government spokesman operate, know that the main settings on motor mouth are 1) No… 2) Yes.. 3) er er um’ 4) I will check and tell.

    Sometimes of course, Kehemalla has to hold the fort while the government prepares ‘the official story’. What to do?

      Kehehlmala and that Peththappu -the srilanken police spokesman have the same modes of behaviours. They are trained to do so in that MR film book.

      But these men have no lajjawa come before people even if Kehelmala would behave as an incessant. That is the nature of these high criminals. Their hearts are well aware of the untruths and misbehaviours. But them to react this way has been their earning bread. All these ministerial titles are just to give the feeling they have mniisters but none of them have respective powers to act suffciently.

    Birds of a feather flock together. The same thuggish and power hungry crowd that flocks around the Rajapaksa’s, took their gutter like behavior to New Jersey. These are not true gentleman, ladies, and the pride of our country, these are our “thrada” citizens, who thinks putting their self respect and dignity aside for personal ambitions and to be in the “IN” crowd, displaying classless behavior. These are supposed to be officials representing our nation. What a pathetic lot.
    Gone are the days when diplomats and officials representing our nation were educated, career diplomats, and upstanding Sri Lankans.

    Rambukwellas are sleep walkers and WAULAS that cling on to the bearing trees. As much as his son who could not differentiate between the toilet door and plane exit door, father is another pretender. Real sleepers can be awaken with minimum effort. However this family Father, son and even the daughter cannot be any different. Don’t ever be surprised if their is an eyewash inquiry, Rambukwella daughter would be like a parrot throwing out everything Sajin and Shenuka would say. If there is any reasonable investigation, the prerequisite would be to remove, uneducated thug and his associate Ms Seneviratne from their official control in EAM before the inquire. This would never happen.

      Agreed. Nonis resigned in indignation. The other two mafia agents MUST be forced to resign or put on ice (remove from their jobs and send on gardening leave) until the enquiry ends,if there is going to be a fair and impartial enquiry. However, in PUKKARAJA island where the CJ and almost all other judges are being lead with ropes piercing their nostrils, where would one find an independent enquiry

    Looks to be all Govt. Media Broadcasts are mere Jokers.

    Starting from ITN, Rupawahani, Swarna Wahini, Police media SSP Ajith Rohana, Army Brigadier Ruwan Wanigasuriya, Sri Lanka Govt. Media minister Keheliya Rambukwella and many more.

    They have all become mere Cabbage and Govt. Mouth piece, while Independent media been suppressed.

    That’s why there is a lack of creativity, talent and balanced and open views that are not available in Sri Lanka media.

    Greed for power coupled with publishing one sided views hampers country’s progress and development.

    Media Freedom is a must for any developing country to Progress.

    So the final bell has tolled for Chris Nonis. In a manner of speaking it’s the deliverance of poetic justice for him.A man who was so full of himself ,he was reduced to cinders in one single moment in the wee hours of a New York dawn.The Nonis saga is a warning to all those who lose their heads as they tread heavily in the halls of power .

    So Mr Nonis welcome back to ole Silly Lanka and to Mackwoods.You reduced Sri Lanka to matchwood in London.Now your 2 siblings would be hoping you won’t reduce Mackwoods to matchwood as well.Would they be hoping against hope?

    I feel that this was a divine punishment for Dr. Nonis. Despite being in the noble profession, he stooped down to low levels telling lies after lies to cover up the atrocities committed on the Tamil people by the security forces and the continuing denial of the rights of Tamil people to live in dignity and safety as equals with Sinhala people. I found that Dr. Nonis had been cocky in the last few months probably after getting an year extension to carry on in his post. I am not surprised that he met his match in New York when he tried his tricks.
    .
    Dr. Nonis has a bad habit of seeking cheap popularity by targeting the gallery, and thereby demeaning himself in the eyes of the fair minded.
    At every social gathering he goes, he makes political speeches totally inappropriate for the event, receiving applause from the sycophants. Due to this behaviour, leading associations like Royal college OBA and SL Medical association which have declared themselves as non-political did not invite him for any of their functions during his stay in UK as High Commissioner, which is a telling indictment of his practice.

    In 2013 when I was President of festival of cricket, I told him that he has to limit his speech around five minutes and he should not mix politics in it, and he complied. This year his speech was over fifteen minutes packed with lies praising himself and the government. As usual he was applauded by zealots gathered, but did not go well with the few Tamils present. It was a miracle that none of the Tamil people present attempted to give him the works on that day. He had been encouraged by few members of the committee to commit nonsense, without my permission.

    His conduct and the events followed that day contributed to a charged atmosphere resulting in a fight between some Tamil youths and Sinhala youths. We managed to prevent any major incident by throwing both parties out without calling the Police, but unfortunately this has caused an irreparable damage as the school authorities have refused to give the grounds to stage the festival in the future. This has brought shame to the Srilankan community as a bunch of unlawful elements, and as the licence holder I had to bear the brunt of the insult.

    It was not the slap, but the kicks administered when Nonis fell down which matter more.
    A kick when down is the worst degradation in the midst of a high level gathering of sycophants & those who lick the crumbs off the table.
    Poor Nonis learned the hard way that telling lies on behalf of the corrupt and murderous regime alone is insufficient to be in the good books of his master.

      Dr No is the first High Commissioner at the Court of St James to be ‘kicked and slapped’ out of office, in living memory. Dr No was not everybody’s cup of tea but he was our highest representative and as such deserved better. Now, once again, the already smudged name of Sri Lanka has been dragged through the mud again. The world and his grandmother thinks that we all must behave like our elected ministers of state (in the diplomatic service, no less). Aiyoo! Aiyoo!

    So Nonis has resigned and the near ecstasy the country was held over the L’affaire Nonis is finally over.It has disgraced this country of our’s which our dam politicians always describe as having a 2500 year old civilization.In fact Nonis too used this myth in his propaganda in London ,although to little effect,for intelligent people could not be fooled.

    Sajin Vass Gonaa has surely survived to get ready for more thuggish acts in the future.Foreign Heads of State better watch out for this Gonaa can do it to them as well.This Nonis incident will surely be factored by their Security detail .

    The president ended up with much embarrassment ,since the Gonaa is is his appointee.

    But hats off to the one who caused it all -Shenuka de Silva Nuhuman Seneviratne the scheming Secretary of Foreign Affairs.In one deft move she singlehandedly succeeded in orchestrating the whole thing in which Nonis was resoundingly slapped,Sachin Gonaa ended up with a broken toe and the President ended up in utter embarrassment It seems.the Gonna had been before warned by the President not to be that “close” to this woman.But such are her scheming ways that many men fall prey to her vile ways.Guaranteed Vass Gona would not be the last victim.

    I am told that Shenuka has already targeted her next victim,Palitha Kohanna, in her ambition to be next Ambassador in New York.She has already transferred two capable officers to New York as part of this move ,since she herself is a mediocre and lack luster performer as her record in the Foreign Service would show.

    How sad it is to see these anti Govt Forces going in to the gutter to pick turds to throw at Vass,when it was a fist fight between two grown up drunks..

    Instead shouldn’t these heavy hitters be bringing out there heavy artillery to demolish Rajapaks Economic Policies , Rajapaksa ‘s Economic Development and Rajapaksa’s pop star like popularity among the post nanthikadal inhabitant majority.

    Specially when the big Election is just around the corner and Rajapaksa is in Vatican even getting a blessing from the Holy See, though the Missus.

    As a matter of fact, the great majority of the inhabitant population who happen to be Sinhala Buddhists, wouldn’t know Nonis from Monis….

    First Diplomut to be slapped, kicked and evicted from post.
    Now says mea culpa from the Vatican.
    Hope he goes for confession to Emmanuel, where he can be absolved from the sin as this incident is minor to what Emmanuels perpetrated through the ltte. He could receive forgiveness 7×77 folds.
