Duminda Silva Interrogated By CID

UPFA MP Duminda Silva has been interrogated by the CID for over six hours since this morning on the charges leveled against him by drug kingpin ‘WeleSuda’ who was arrested a few weeks ago.

Duminda and Gota

During a media briefing Police Spokesman stated that Welesuda has stated that he paid large sums of money to Silva, who was the Monitoring MP of the Defence Ministry during the Rajapaska regime, to continue his drug smuggling activities unhindered.

Silva had arrived at the CID accompanied by two lawyers to make his statement. The MP has been for long been accused to be one of the main handlers of the drug racket in Colombo.

“Duminda Silva is not my man, he is Gota’s man” President Mahinda Rajapkasa said to both Bharatha Lakshman Premachandra and former Prime Minister and senior Minister Rathnasiri Wickramanayake.

As Colombo Telegraph reported in October 11, 2011, three months before Bharath was killed, Bharatha had complained to the President that Duminda Silva had given a contract to underworld thugs to murder him. President Rajapaksa had subsequently ordered the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) to investigate the alleged murder plot. Two underworld gangsters who were in police custody at that time had given statements to the CID confirming the murder plot. Bharatha Lakshman had secured a copy of this CID investigation report and informed Rathanasiri Wickramanayke, Minister Susil Premajayantha, Alavi Moulana, the Governor of the Western Province, Minister John Senavirathne and some other senior Sri Lanka Freedom Party members about the CID findings.

The Colombo Telegraph has learnt from several sources within the ruling party that Rathnasiri Wickramanayake and Bharatha Lakshman Premachandra had met and urged the President to remove Duminda Silva from Kolonnawa and arrest the underworld gangs operating under Duminda three month ago. It was then that the President had stated, “Duminda Silva is not my man, he is Gota’s man”

Three weeks before his murder, Bharatha had met two senior lawyers with a view to initiate legal proceedings against Duminda Silva based on the CID report.

          My foot! It has nothing to do with Journalism, although he appeared in courts a case related to journalism.

          Sudharman Radaliyagoda already had two arrest warrants issued against him.

          Radaliyagoda has been charged of committing a fraud of forging documents and collecting Rs. 1.5 million from two businessmen promising to get them scrap iron.

          He was issued the first warrant on June 19, 2011. When the police failed to arrest him after six months, Kaduwela magistrate Lanka Jayaratne had issued another warrant on February 9, 2012 for his arrest.

          Over the past three years, the former Deputy General Manager of ITN appeared in public freely, despite the arrest warrant issued against him

          The due process is being implemented, to investigate accusations, rather than paying hit men to kill off a journalist! ……..if this man can be called a journalist. How is that you are unable to comprehend the facts without babbling in blind adoration of your chosen political views?

      So, what is the Gravy Train?

      drug kingpin ‘WeleSuda’ ==> UPFA MP Duminda Silva . Monitoring MP ==> Gotabaya Rajapaksa ++> Mahinda Rajapaksa to be distributed to Medamulana MaRa Family Dynasty?

      If investigators would closely study, they will surely find the true face of MAHINDA RAJAPAKSHE. The day they will reveal to the nation – the day we all those who fought for respect and dignity can have our nektar. This man is a murderer and he even contracted murderes. There law and order should work on MR and GR and all. Time s come to see it right. Please Prez and PM react accordingly buttaking prompt actions before MR is given chances to paint the picture in favour of him. MR must go…

      Hi GUYS, now they the authorities started questioning him.
      Wait and see if GOOD GOVERNANCE is there, they cant let him escape now. This initiated investigations should go further until all his drug dealings and Murders cases have been questined. All what his MEDICAL WONDER- the injured skull should also be included to that list since public statements were made by doctors who have sworn with their approbation, lawyers that have promised to hold the law in compliacne with the due guidelines valid for the country laws… all these are entwined so – wait and see, next will be the man -SHARK most awaited person Gotabaya. Duminda has to mention his name any of the cases he was hired for doing the job- there the most stupid MP of all times has to mention GOTA.. now we see the light at the end of the tunnel – they will have to catch the large fish soon: Jaya niyathi friends, wait and see in calm.

      India s modi bubble being burst by the new elec result of NEWdelhi state – giving us also a sign that Anti-corruption movements can marginalize even the most powerful politicians- Modi was once compared to Mandela at the time he claimed a land slide victory last year being the country s leader.

      The LOWyer who represented Kudu Dumi, the notorious President Counsel who was also the Ambassador to Italy Hemantha SHOULD AND MUST be sent to jail for contempt of court for lying to the courts and submitting falsified X-rays of the King pin dumiya. When dumi’s skull was examined…they found that he had nothing inside…These so called Noble men of intellect lie through their nose to extract the last cent from the clients and feed their family with monies earned without ethics. so the saying ” Lawyers are Professional liars.” seem to be correct…. uhmmmm

      Hirunika seem to be having the last laugh… I salute her for not backing out and let goons like dumi rule… and finding justice for the cold blooded murder of her dad….

    Interrogated by the CID. That’s all. Ranil will make sure that nothing untoward happen to Duminda because of the funds the UNP get from Duminda’s brother.

    My Elders tell me this Duminda dude was the UNP enforcer for Colombo North, operating from his base in Kollonnawa.

    And he was the pin up boy for the Elite chicks in Colombo…

    Obviously , he must have more connections to the UNP than to the Dalits in Kolonnawa.

    Besides Duminda is not a Dalit right..

    So he must be an Elite ,perhaps an Anglican too..Correct me if I am wrong.

    And Patriot here now tell us that Duminda’s brother is a big contributor to the UNP.

    And Dalits can’t do that sort of thing..

    Did Wella Sudda contribute anything to Duminda brother’s donations to the UNP Coffers?.

    Some times Money Trails are hard to crack even for our super sleuths in the CID.

    Now I am compelled to believe Patriot…

      K A Sumanasekera I do understand that your loyal to Mahindas regime and thats fine its your choice but when you write please do write sense and dont take others for fools

      Duminda was and is a SLFP Kollonanwa organiser and MP and not a UNP MP

      Duminda was cared for and taken to Singapore by the UPFA Govt under Gota and not by my3’s or Ranils men,we the tax payers of Sri Lanka paid for this guys medical bills in Singapore

      Now to see your talking of UNP and dalits which only show that you need yo have your head examined by a psychiatrist!

      Oh Sumaney, Sumaney. You are getting good at this spreading of rubbish to muddy the waters at the corruption charges now faced by your idols, the Rajapakses. Duminda Silva should now watch his step because he is carrying the evidence that links the bribery payments that went through him to the Rajapakses, and they are not without influence with thugs who carry out assassinations.

      You seem to be an adult responding here. So fact check even your elders opinion so you can make smart conclusions. Dalits are an oppressed minority in India. Might help you to read some basic information before you put the foot in your mouth.

    Here is a funny video of Duminda and his antics:

    [Edited out]

    If he, or any other criminal, is involved in drugs, which affects our younger generation, and causes great harm to their health, they should be prosecuted and thrown in jail for a long time. They are the scum that ruins families and make addicts suffer. It is time our country was cleaned off these vermin. He does not have the protection of the Rajapaksa’s now, so let us see how he gets out of this one.
    As for the Rajapaksa’s they surrounded themselves with thugs, criminals, and drug dealers.
    That alone shows what type of scoundrels they are.

    Duniya and Kudu Mervin, both of whom were in the UNP and SLFP coalitions enjoying the nod of leaders there. These are two examples
    of the sick nature of recent Sri Lankan politics. As long as you show
    the dough in millions your background and your trade is forgotten.
    As they say in Sinhala – “Salli – Deviyange malli”

    But are the Rajapakses, Dimu Jayaratne and the entire drug-trafficking mob in Sri Lankan politics aware they are constantly in the regular radar of the U.S. Narcotics authorities. Their drug money will have to be unearthed soon if the USA are honest about catching drug lords. These Lankans holding US residential facilities are in the thick of the Narcotics trade is elementary. Thanks to the Rajapakse family Sri Lanka was known as a Narco-Mafia State. The Sirisena-Ranil-Mangala regime have much work to do to shed this ugly reputation earned for the country by the rapacious Rajapakse regime.

    Gota got Duminda to bump off Bahratha Laxman, another Drug peddler because Gota feared that Bahratha Laxman will bump off Gota. So Duminda came in handy to Gota, hence Gota’s interest to save Duminda. Welle Suda has not only revealed about Duminda’s connection but has revealed of former IGP Mahinda Balasuriya’s and two other ASPs involvement who were in the pay of Weele Suda.

    Don’t get too excited people.

    When the investigations are done, and the commoner is placated, when the authorities quietly announce that there is insufficient evidence to proceed, the excitement dies down, Duminda will go back to his business without hindrance and donate large sums of money to those in power.

    Remember, the same IGP under who most of these crimes were so blatently committed is still the IGP. The Rajapaksa brothers are roaming free disbursing large amounts of money from their never to be exhausted billions. They will escape being implicated in the criminal syndicate of Duminda and Wele Suda. There are many in the My3 government who were wined and dined by the Duminda Millions and know that if Duminda goes down he will drag some of these so called clean skins as well.

    So let us not get too excited by these developments.

      BBS paints a cynical picture of the reality around us. To the initiated the Rajapakse name will remain as those who destroyed all the safe and decent safety valves of society – to satisfy their personal greed and to keep power within the sanitised family for as long as possible. But fate intervened in a welcome but strange way
      and shattered the Medamulana mafia. The sordid details of the Rajapakses living the grand on the decaying carcass of the people’s meagre resources will find its way out. Does the doped minds of the average man in the street aware that one of the reasons the Rajapakses refused to share the benefit of a 50% drop in the global oil market with the country is to finance their vulgar profligate style of living.
      A country and a people get a government that it deserves is not altogether a misplaced statement. As a 3-wheel driver in the Hultsdorp Courts area in Colombo once told me, referring then to Premadasa – “if you bring a man from the streets and make him King he will, invariably,
      apply the street culture to his governing style” I thought the “unlearned” man had acquired the wisdom most scholars fail to see.

    It was mind blowing how come one of Silva brothers who worked with my cousin at MTV/Sirasa as a Sales Executive with a remuneration of SLR5000/month is now the owner of a modern state of the art TV and Radio stations and so much property.

    The family business was a restaurant in Battaramull and even nothing compared for todays wealth.

Reuse those cages for wife beaters, rapist to be hung follow Lara Croft she is canvassing again rape in industry right now at London.
