Easter Attacks PSC: Speaker Dismisses Sirisena’s Allegations

The Speaker dismissed allegations levelled against him yesterday by President Sirisena, where he claimed the Speaker did not grant due recognition nor take any action regarding an official communique he shared with the Speaker, in which he asked for suspension of Parliamentary Select Committee (PSC) hearings due to impact on national security.

Speaker Karu Jayasuriya

The Speaker’s office has addressed Sirisena’s allegations in a letter,noting although Sirisena claims he ordered suspension of the PSC in a letter, it was in fact a letter from the Presidents Secretary notifying him of the concerns Attorney General had raised on impacts to ongoing cases in the Supreme Court.

The Speaker’s Office further noted taking the contents of the letter into account, measures were taken to bring it before the attention of the PSC members promptly in order to further ensure the proceedings dont result in any impact on national security. The letter notes there was no requirement for the contents regarding a select committee to be tabled before the Parliament.

The Speaker’s office also emphazises on the fact that he is not authorized to suspend hearings of the PSC and its sole authority lies with the Parliament.

We publish below the letter in full:

    Sirisena is now a cornered animal and trying every bit for his survival. Rest assured, he will not stop until he is stopped. Even if the country plunges along with him, he will not stop. That is what you call a F – – – – N Patriot. Such a pathetic state of affairs.

      Within few days after the death and destruction due to the bomb carnage the Silli Billi was still holidaying on state money with his entire family , then landed 24 hours after the carnage as his team was unable to book a First class return journey thus causing the delay in his return.
      What a pathetic excuse.
      He was in a hurry too to conduct lavish wedding celebration for his good for nothing Brat son.
      We all knew well what kind of ear bashing he had given to all the returning cabinet ministers and the PM after the failed MS/ Rajabky combo Coup drama last year.
      He must have threatened them in his power that ” if they stepped out of his command” will face dire / imminent death?? Was it ? They all came out from his room with death on their faces. No rejoice! That said it all.
      How did we turn the so called pious Buddhist man into a Dictator???
      The Dictator with a sword in his hand??
      Time to go chap quietly if you need the Pension and the Perks for a Retiree!!
      Enough of your GREED and the Greed of your family.
      Get lost for ever.

        How dare ye guys blame the 6.5-million-vote-getter His Excellency The Honourable President Sirisena? …….. He is a good “Sinhalese-Buddhist,” No? …….. Has he ever shown any other deviant traits?

        I like president Sirisena; immensely ………… he is a true son of the great “Sinhalese-Buddhist” nation of Sri Lanka. He is true to character of all the other great “Sinhalese-Buddhist” leaders and display the same traits.

        Great leader and the father of the nation Mahinda Rajapakse diverted the Tsunami funds for safekeeping, to be utilized for more important work at a later date. Dispatched to haven/Nirvana all his detractors and sent some to live in France. His brother the painless-serial-killer, the next president of Sri Lanka, is already been fêted by all the religious leaders of the country for his methods of painless killing with sheep stun-guns. Religious leaders know a good man when they see one.

        Mild mannered well-brought-up classy gentleman Ranil Wickeramasingha used quintessential “Sinhala-Buddhist” methods to protect and safeguard/cover-up the Central Bank and the hard-workingman’s EPF ……….. to utilize the funds for better use for not-very-hard-working other men.

        These are all great “Sinhalese-Buddhist” Lankan leaders ……….. whose quintessential “Sinhalese-Buddhist” ways/traits we have all come to appreciate. We are very fortunate to have had leaders in the last 71 years who have not deviated from the quintessential “Sinhalese-Buddhist” traits that we all come to value.

        If you want foolish principled leaders you have to look to other ethnicities ……….. leaders who sacrifice their entire families for a cause they believe in ………….

        Rejoice! There is a great son of the great nation in the highest office of the land.

        What more do you want? ……. A “non-Sinhalese-Buddhists?” …… Now, wouldn’t that be terrible!

          It’s all for the love of God / Lord Buddha mate!
          Love of God results war ,death and destruction. Just control yourself chaps otherwise you’ll see your self in Mt Sinai Hospital in Singapore next to your masters bed with a Coronary bypass surgery. I wonder why the LA Hospital was out of bounds for the 7/11 petrol filler aka dual holder.

            Don Juan Kinsley … That is up your Idol Dr Ranil’s alley .. mate.
            Even Appuhamy is a bit too heavy.
            My ancestors probably didn’t have a gig ,even in Don Juan Dharmapala’s Sanitary teams,
            Any way that is another story…
            ..
            CBS now a days is no big deal mate..
            Even our poor Appuhamy’s can get it done even in Karapitiya Hospital.
            And they do a bloody good job too, although the waiting list is a bit too long.
            .-
            But your mates of course who offer free advice to our Appuhamys in the Village , .on how to become Good Buddhists and improve our Body and Soul , get it done under Pensioner and Concession Facilities in publicly funded Hospitals in the West,

            While their masters like Dr Rajitha go to Mt Elizebeth Hospital in Singapore .
            Which is fare enough .

            But what makes me puke is Dr Ranitha’s Bill for the Surgery as well as his Missus Hospital Bedside care are invoiced to our poor Health Ministry in Colombo, while banking the LKR 34 Million each fr.om the Free Yahapalana Car Permits.
            Not only for the Dad but also darling son Chatura as well.

            Dr Rajitha must be one of those Good Buddhists like you.-
            BTW did you get it done at Mt Sinai..
            I can imagine what the Invoice would have been there….

              On the subject of Medical treatments and Medical Bills why are all these parasites running away from our home grown and highly educated doctors from the free education system ? Are they substandard or Killers in hospitals? Because they have no time to treat poor patients or rich patients?! 24/7 they’re doing private practice.
              They have no time but shorten the life of patients or Botched up Surgery.
              Is that why the Political Parasites runs to Mt Elizabeth Singapore or Mt Sinai USA??
              RW should get all the funds from these Parasites and families claiming bedside care and taxi services. Not only Rajitha &Co family I can name a few more few years ago too. Remember hanging from the hospital balcony as he had forgotten his room in a Singapore hospital. So the story went covered up. Remember the name?? One of your master blasters in the opposition shouting incessantly like you still.

      Please remember that Sirisena is a Traitor, liar, sleaze and Mala-Perethaya.

With all become clear that BP Sirisena only ignored the warnings receieved to him, I have not the least respect to this bugger. if the bugger would have been raw buried, I would be happier to hear that.. my heart felt sorrowfulness about the dead on that very sunday, I cant have any more words to express… those who got exploded not being able to idetify their last reserves… those poor people never deserved that… but BP Rajaakseh and his siamesian brother Rajapakshe. These bala perethayasa should be beheaded in open cerremonies to heal the nations wounds.

      Hajiar Silisena now,in deep trouble still determined to save his Musulims coolies at any cost.

      Modayas,has,no gut to challenge ..
      Because,they are,genetically weak.

      Musulims politicians in Kafir dress have kidnapped this cursed land with Bedouin Arab Money. For their tune.

      Modayas only can dance for free liquor about their fake..borrowed..artificial victory.

      Bring Mossad to weed out these cockroaches time is running out.

      At least Modayas know how many mosques are,in this country and what is happening inside and underground of mosques?

      30 Thowheed Jamath Members Including Easter Sunday Bomber Zahran Hashim were Paid Salaries from State Accounts (was on the Government’s payroll) by former defense secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksha during the previous regime. The PSC should also discuss this and reveal the details to the public, after all it is public money.

        But these 30 coolies never wanted to expose their future martyr Zakuran who was posting violent video speeches in Tamil for some time , to their boss …joke is Modayas believed these coolies.

        Every Musulim in Eastern Province and other parts of the country fully aware about these bomb attacks but knowing they will go to hell if they expose another Mususlim kept queit.

        In short Mususlim took Modayas former and present governments for a ride using state vehicles to transport people and weapons as they like to every corner of the country.

        These Kafir dress loving Musulim minister are not from wealthy families and how on earth they accumulate such wealth ?..Russian KGB style interrogotion of the relatives ,friends ,drivers and cooks of these coolies will expose the full amount of
        funds and properties belong to these Mususlim ministers .

        Indian style recently passed proxy law allow to confisticate bank account and properties
        to those who are unable to explain how they got this money and lands,properties.
        SL urgently need this law.

        Hajiar Silisena and Al Haji Ronil have to answer many questions to the public instead still are trying to save these Mususlim Ministers .

        Malaysian ex_PM received USD 620 Million to his personal bank account from Bedouin Saudies ( according to him ) and his party miserably defeated in the last election .This PM now in the dock soon will go to prison ,KeKeKeKe Saudi Bruders washed their hand .and ditched him.

        After this Malaysia another fanatic Musulim country now begging Kafir China and Japan for investments.without shame.

    Honestly, is there a difference between MS and Zaharan. Zaharan and his colleagues sacrificed their wealth, comfort and families for religion (in their mind). Where as this SOB is sacrificing the whole nation for his own sake. Now please tell me who is worse ????

      Good Question and food for thought. But one must take his or her mind back to Jan 2015. I, and most readers cum commentators I believe, believed in Ven. Maduluwawe Sobhitha and others, accepted the team presented by them namely MY3 and RW and company to make this land a better place. Having voted, I cannot spit looking upwards, by bashing roundly MY3 and RW combine except to say that both of them have let us down by their own bickering, mostly arising out of how to divide the cake between themselves, thus resulting in poor governance. Their score-card on the implementation of their own promises is well below par. If they were of any acceptable standards they should not palm the buck on any other or the officials (Even if they are at fault) but accept the moral responsibility and asked for the nations apology for this massacre. It is pertinent to say that Emperor Hirohito went before General McArthur on his own and told him that he assumes the full responsibility for what has happened. That reflects the good quality of leadership. Had that honourable course was taken the public fury against the machinery would have thinned down. Now it is growing day by day and which way the whole thing is moving is anybody’s guess. We can only hope for the best.

      Chic,

      Yes, Zaharan , even though a Terrorist, misled by the Devi, Satan, is true to his distorted cause, is NOT a Traitor to his distorted cause , and sacrificed his life for his distorted cause.

      Sirisena, on the other hand, is Traitor to the cause he was elected to remedy, and save the populace. He will certainly sacrifice many fractions of the populace who elected h, to Dave his ass. A true Traitor! Amarasiri recognized this years ago.

      The immediate reaction is that it’s a shocking, thought provoking, and heartbreaking comparison all at once.

      But is it a fair comparison? Certainly it’s evident President Sirisena is stubborn, incompetent, and self-serving. But is President Sirisena a deliberate, willing, and knowing participant to the security lapse? Should we not wait for the investigations to conclude? If he is guilty of all that is alleged, then we must hold him accountable.

    Desperation is making this clown lash out at everyone and everything, blame others, and he does not have the damn spine to take responsibility, apologize, and work on uniting the nation. All he keeps doing is trying to cover his filthy tracks, and get others to take the blame, even offering them prestigious jobs overseas. What kind of lowlife is he? He even released the saffron robed terrorists at a time when tensions are high in the country.
    He has failed the country badly, and seems to have acted in questionable ways that favored the despicable terrorists, and not to safeguard the people.
    We do not need leaders of this kind. They are an embarrassment and a disgrace to this country. Sri Lanka never progresses, because we are cursed with corrupt, unqualified, and incapable leaders.

        Cholan,
        The destruction and curse of this land started when Portuguese, Dutch and British brought slaves from Malabar, dumped them in this country and vanished. The colonial parasites made lot of money exploiting resources in Sinhale using these Malabari (aka Demala) slaves and became rich. Native Sinhalayo are paying the price for the wicked things committed by Portuguese, Dutch and British.

    Dear Cholan,
    .
    You’ve said it: “the British appointed a Grade 8 qualified rubber control board clerk as PM”. I guess that you mean no less a person that the “father of the Nation” – Don Stephen Senanayake. You couldn’t be more right.
    .
    His son, Dudley, was a better-prepared choice, but unfortunately, he lacked that killer instinct which is also necessary for Politics. He was temperamentally unsuited, although he improved with time.
    .
    On one thing I appeal to you: don’t let that analysis take too communal a line. Such a line will make it even more difficult to heal the divisions in our society. I’m trying hard not to be too provocative. I grant that the situation best described as weird.

    How can we compare a sirisena with the likes of hirohito? From the name itself you can understand!
    Its like comparing a paraya dog with a pure breed.
    The difference is like heaven and earth.

    From the beginning it was clear that Sirisena was hiding something when he denied knowing anything regarding the impending attacks after foreign agencies had given specific warnings on two occasions well in advance.
    Sirisena choose to galavant across the world, instead of staying home and fighting the issue. Moreover he choose to keep the deaf and dumb PM in the dark. This should give us an impression of what Sirisena wishes for his countrymen. They are best neglected!
    Anyway the event took its toll and 258 innocent 😇 people are dead. This bastard has not the slightest remorse. Instead he is busy passing the buck around.
    Perhaps he is afraid that these investigations will expose the real culprits. Perhaps there is much more to this than meets the eye.
    Christians and Muslims have paid a heavy price.
    Sinhalese want to exercise their sadistic frustration on innocent Muslims, gota’s presidential bid looks viable. All failures of the government are swept under the carpet.
    Maybe this PSC thing was not thought of or accounted for when the plan was hatched.
    All I know is that Sirisena is neck deep in this this shit with his buddies. The whole thing stinks to high heaven.
    Sirisena should be hanged by his balls for this crime.

      Gemini Cricket,
      “Sinhalese want to exercise their sadistic frustration on innocent Muslims,”

      It is ‘Para Demalu’ and ‘Para Wahabi Muslims’ who exercised their sadistic barbarism by killing innocent Native Sinhalayo.

      ‘Para Demala’ and ‘Para Wahabi Muslims’ went on slaughtering Native Sinhalayo because both these religions practice slaughter as sacrifices to please the God. May be they think they can get more favors from God if they slaughter Sinhalayo.

    This passing-the-ball-game, I think, should come to an end as it only bring disrepute to the country.
    Both Pujith and Hemasiri only showed their unprofessionalism.
    Hemasiri’s “story” that only Methodist churches were targetted not Catholic (as quoted by Chief/SIS) is also not true as 2 out 3 churches were Catholic.

    I agree with Sinhala-Man that it may be futile digging the dirt from the past. But yet truth have to be told. We are a nation immersed in bias, racism, distortion, lies, denial, extremism, to name a few and vast majority of Sinhalese do not know the truth as they were misled by racists to believe something else. They are really ignorant of the truth. There is a balu dostharaya from A’Pura who is now talking of Buddhsim and Sinhala Race instead of teaching the students that Dhemalus are brought by British for tobacco cultivation. This cheap, publicity seeking moron is one good example of what is happening in the Sinhala country where sinhales are 100% misled by some opportunistic goons. They claim to be clergy. They claim to be educated. They claim to be patriots. So D.S., no doubt is another liar , one of the many liars that sinhala politics has seen. I quote this bellow:
    D.S. Senanayake’s speech in 1945 to solicit support from the minorities to accept the Westminister type parliament went like this,
    ” … through out this period the Ministers had in view one objective only, the attainment of maximum freedom. Accusations of Sinhalese domination have been bandied about. We can afford to ignore them for it must be plain to every one that what we sought was not Sinhalese domination, but Ceylonese domination. We devised a scheme that gave heavy weightage to the minorities; we deliberately protected them against discriminatory legislation. We vested important powers in the Governor-General. We decided upon an Independent Public Service Commission so as to give assurance that there should be no communalism in the Public Srvice.(sic) I do not normally speak as a Sinhalese, and I do not think that the Leader of this Council ought to think of himself as a Sinhalese representative

We are one of another, what ever race or creed.”
    Despite all those noble words, I enumerate here some of the events that soon followed. All those promises by the Sinhalese were in fact total and outright deceptions:
    • 1948 – 1 million Tamils declared as non-citizens
    • 1949 – Sinhalese colonization in traditional Tamil homeland
    • 1956 – Sinhala made sole official language of the country
    • 1970 – “Ethnic standardization” slashes university admission to Tamils
    –same entrance exam, but Tamils need to score 30% more
    • 1972 – New constitution without Tamils participation
    • Unilateral name change from Ceylon to Sri Lanka
    • Declaration of Sri Lanka as a republic

      Nathan,
      “1948 – 1 million Tamils declared as non-citizens”
      * These Demalu were brought to Sinhale illegally by British who were occupying this country illegally. British dumped them in Sinhale and vanished. British should have taken them to Britain and give citizenship there.

      “1949 – Sinhalese colonization in traditional Tamil homeland”
      * Talking about a Traditional Homeland in Sinhale by descendants of slaves brought to this country by Portuguese and Dutch from Malabar is a joke.

      “1956 – Sinhala made sole official language of the country”
      * Sinhala was the official language of Sinhale before British changed it to English. These ‘Para Demalu’ had no problem when British changed the official language to English probably because they were licking the a*s of British to get favors.

      “1970 – “Ethnic standardization” slashes university admission to Tamils’
      * This was done to do justice to Sinhalayo who were discriminated by British and Demalu for nearly 150 years. This policy had a negative impact on Wellala Demalu in the North who were over represented in universities but it was beneficial even to Demalu who lived in the Eastern part and Wathu Demalu. Of course we know Wellala Demalu do not like to see Demalu in other parts of the country getting opportunities for higher education.

      “1972 – New constitution without Tamils participation
      • Unilateral name change from Ceylon to Sri Lanka
      • Declaration of Sri Lanka as a republic
      • Buddhism made state religion”
      * Native Sinhalayo who lived in Sinhale for thousands of years do not have to take permission from the descendants of slaves brought to this country by colonial rulers to make these changes.

      “1977 – Prevention of Terrorism Act”
      * This came as a result of Demala terrorism against Native Sinhalayo.

      “State-sponsored anti-Tamil violence in 1956, 1958, 1977, 1983 and from there on continues to date”
      * When Para Demalu attacked Native Sinhalayo in the North they had no choice but to react.

        Eagle eyes = Ignorance, lies, stupidity, bigotry and mindless propaganda at its best. A lunatic to the end without any hope of touch with reality and truth.

    There is nothing wrong in principle to have the PSC to inquire into the reasons for the ‘public security’ failures in respect of the terrorist attacks on Easter Sunday. There is nothing wrong in allowing the media to openly cover the proceedings, unless any matter deemed confidential or related to the present/future national security. Inquiry is a matter of ‘public security’ on which the public has a special interest to know, although there is no Chinese Wall between public security and national security. Democratic tradition in this respect is to have equal number of MPs from the government and the opposition. This is what followed in the US in a similar inquiry commission after the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Absence of women is also a defect.
    During the proceedings, MP Sumanthiran very clearly told the former IGP that they don’t need to know about what was discussed in the National Security Council, meaning confidential and security information. I believe and hope that other members follow similar principles in questioning and investigation, although the questionings show an angle going against the President while particularly the former IGP taking the opportunity to expose or take revenge. Just consider how much time he was allowed to relate the story about ‘how he was offered an Ambassador position to keep quiet or take responsibility.’ This is not relevant to the PSC inquiry although it might be true. The Chair of the PSC appears very weak. On the other hand, the former IGP was not questioned sufficiently why he was not taken any steps when he was not invited to the National Security Council or why he failed to take any action with all knowledge of the impending attacks? He was not questioned properly about the attacks.

      But then the IGP (on compulsory leave ) can be recalled and re-examined on the points raised above.

      Laksiri’s penultimate sentence: …..the former IGP was not questioned……why he failed to take any action with all knowledge of the impending attacks?
      The former IGP’s explanation was that “He felt helpless”. This ailment is common in the higher echelons of our public services probably started during the WhiteVan era.
      The last sentence: He was not questioned properly about the attacks.
      It is his word against others. For example the Diplomatic post offer.

    Mental siri will play further havoc as he is used to act like that until he wins the task of getting a general election before presidential election or get rid of ranil (next joker ). Bring an impeachment to stop him play like a comedy star and destroy the whole country.

    Even a small child knows that Sirisena is the prime responsible person for this failure of national Security.

    Sirisena is guilty.

    Evidence and statements of IGP Mr. Pujitha Jayasundara and resigned Defense Secretary have revealed the incapability and incapacity of Sirisena as a Head of State.

    Now Sirisena must resign.

      Totally agree with you.
      :
      Not even a public apology made by Sirisena, makes it very clear he is still out of out his mode.
      :
      He as minister of defence should have ordered his officers to react accordingly. Instead, he had blocked all heads of leaders that should have lot more experience in lanken national security (PM Wickramasinghe has lot more exp regarding those meetings for the last 3 decades all along, a person of that nature to be excluded from such meetings, just for political selfish gains, is a grave issue, and PRESIDENT should be made accoutable for all the mess – and he should bring before the COURTs after being impeached.
      :
      No more patience can be allowed within the public.
      :
      His assasination plot, set on for his own politicals gains, putting a cannine by name NAMAL KUMARA in place was given much more media attraction than the life loss of 270 of innocient prayers ( from infant to elderly). how come?
      .
      As if President does not seem to take anyting serious, he also did it to national security. THi sman should be removed his civic rights. Basta

      Jehan Mahanayaks may have told that because a politicians asked the help. Otheriwse, Mahanayakes are not Political experts. Just accept RISHAD BATHIUDDIN, HISBULLAH and FOWZIE are not needed. The first two must be prosecuted even though they asks the help of UN. I know when DEVELOPED countries go to UN they help the country not the other grievance.

    Hajiar Silisena or Al Haji Ronil according to SL constitution?

    OR

    2(two) Bedouin Arab Embassy in Colombo?

    Why this Koverner from KILAKISTAN met some ARABS in Pasikudah Hotel after his resignation what they have discussed?

    Now there is a talk to reinstall this Eastern Racist Koverner and other Ganja (Haram in Isulam )smuggling
    Minister.

    The Musulim Terrorist who had massacred 2 policemen in Vavunatheevu was given Visa to Bedouin Saudi Arabia the next day to escape how is this?
    Modaya super intelligence accused LTTE of this killing and tortured an innocent Tamil,

    Over to Buddhist Ayotullahs time is running out.

    Bring Mossad.who have the right recipe to eliminate these cockroaches who are still hiding.

    Place US troops permanently in N-E. China will handle S-W areas.

    Why is all this is only in Chingkallam , where is the Thamizh version? I thought Thamizh was the other official language in par with Chingkallam , this means everything should be in both languages , not just in Chingkaalm. Proves this is fascists racist Chingkalla state and Thamizh is just only an official language in paper. Now name boards are only written in English, Chingkallam and Chinese down south and in many parts of the east English , Chingkallam and Arabic . May be because most Chingkallams and Thullukans are largely descended from Indian Thamizh low caste, refugees, slave labour , immigrants and invaders , that they hate their own Thamizh and love Chinese and Arabic.

    Yahapalana speaker gig was like a Viagra Hit for this UNP Octogenarian. Uncle Karu.

    Uncle Karun spent a few years parading Keselwatta Kid, hoping to get a Minister Job on the back of the Kid , whom the UNP thought could be used to hoodwink the poor Sinhala Buddhsit Community and get in to Government as Dr Ranil, who couldn’t win even a chook raffle in the Village , let alone an Election against the mighty Rajapakasa.

    Shifty Sira changed the fortunes of Dr Ranil and made him the Yahapalana PM.

    Now the Catholic community which supported the the UNP , Diaspora West Troika is in tatters.

    Uncle Karu is now protecting the Muslims Ministers who are alleged to have been the collaborators of Easter Destruction, using the powers of his Speaker Job and rescue Dr Ranil .
    And get Ranil win the next Election?.
    .
    Will it work?.

    Keselwatta Kid apparently told a Reporter Yesterday, quote ” I Will be Back , Don’t Worry mate , It will be sooner than what you think”
    It was in response to the Reporters quizzing the Kid whether he is putting the hand up to be the next UNP President.

    Wonder whether the Uncle has given his Blessing to the Kid again?..

    Muslim countries and businessman will avoid Sri Lanka.

    Best to dislove parliment now and call for General Election, MR can.secure 2\3 majority with UPFA& Flowerbud with exclusively Sinhala only MPS like MODI.

    Will the Parliamentary Select Committee (PSC) ever ask “Were the ‘pardons’ political? Were the activities of BBS-Buddhist Gnanasara and Mahason Balakaya taken into account?

    PSC is another COPE committee set up to fins about the Bond Scam. Why did Ranil go to Nuwara eliya on that day. How did Harin Fernando’s Father say, if so do not go the church on that. Why Harin Fernando and Ranil did not answer. I sit parliamentary privileges. Who brought TWO CONTAINERS OF SWORDS without custom clearance. Are those all to clear bushes around the Mosque. PSC for just one month is not enough. IT is some FRAUD there. Besides who in the world, Parliament solve problems except taking political advantage. It is PUJITHA JAYASUNDARA who said he was not trusted inside the Security Council. SO he would have not informed police Subordinates to take actions. the question is did anyone SAY DO NOT TAKE ACTION. Now, Ranil is trying to escape.
