A suspect in the Prageeth Ekneligoda disappearance case, was granted bail by the Homagama Magistrate on Thursday. Lieutenant Colonel Prabodha Siriwardena, identified as the second suspect in the case was released on a cash bail of Rs. 2 million along with two sureties of Rs. 6 million.

Despite being released on bail, the Magistrate has issued a travel ban on Siriwardena.

He was released on bail after evidence was submitted that Siriwardena was at the Army Training Institute in Kukuleganga undergoing a training programme from 23 to 27 January 2010.

In March this year, Ekneligoda’s wife, Sandya said that if the army personnel who were in remand custody over her husband’s disappearance was released, her life could be under threat.

“If these army personnel get bail, my life will be in danger, as well as even the lives of those from the Attorney General’s office who appeared on behalf of the case. I am requesting the President, Prime Minister, the UN and the Diplomatic Community to take responsibility and ensure no harm will come to me from the culprits, in the event they are bailed out,” she told a news conference.

      You will not be talking like this if you were in Sandya Eknaligoda’s shoes.

      Exactly my thoughts! I was thinking the same thing about Mahinda and his clan.

      I agree with you. That is why the comedian Old King should be put on the UN Electric chair instead of army protection.

    sarojini ,Ekneligoda’s wife is not from MR and co gangsters. She is an affected person like you and me. Looks like you do not know anything about this disappearance or the reason for the disappearance. Are you really from srilanka or from any other planet. Sorry for my comments.

    As it is in SL, a customary arrest, a customary release and a no-case, case.

    Remember, b4 Ekneligoda, Richard De Zoysa, his murderers still walk the streets of Colombo, free as birds. After Jesus Christ, Richard De Zoysa came back from the dead, his mother identified the abductors yet the court case fell through. His mother heart broken and frail, couldn’t go through another trial.

    Oh Mother Lanka, Just like Saturn does, you destroy your own.

      Don’t you think, the main culprit Honourable Premadasa, got his just deserts?

        The naive in me wishes the Judicial Process would have taken care of the perpetrators.
        Our culture on impunity, goes back, way back.

    When Prageeth Eknaligoda went missing MR supporters ridiculed that he probably migrated for greener pastures. They pretended that they were unaware what happened to him and even speculated that he had been seen in France. When questioned further they took up position that only ‘God Knows’. Thereafter with the defeat of MR when it surfaced that Prageeth Eknaligoda had in fact being kidnapped by the Army intelligence sleuths an attempt was made to justify that he had connections with the LTTE as the reason. In other words they knew from the beginning what happened to Prageeth Eknaligoda because they were the Murderers. These War Criminals of the Forces deserve to be put on a firing line as they are no better than the Terrorists.

      Gamini ,

      Remember how Arundika Fernando went on about Prageeth been in France ? That Criminal went extra mile to justify his assertion as to how Prageeth lives in France with another mistress . Arundika got caught off guard by uttering some truth about CJ Shirani Bandaranayake’s impeachment saga in the early days, as a damage control mechanism he was asked to utter such falsehood about Prageeth’s disappearance. both Arundika and Cheat justice Mohan P must be behind bars for that crime .

      Sri lanka did not have proper laws and the govt was chicken.

      Otherwise, Ekneligoda should have been arrested and taken of a Firing squad for being a traitor, just martial law.

      Sri lankan govt is brain dead and is chicken little.

    These dramas bound to take a new twist when the American election in November comes to end. They are biting their lips and tightening their teeth and bellies for few more months.

    Chandrika has started to use her muscle in Washington expecting Hillary Clinton will be the win. Clintons and John Kerry are a little bit of an odd. Secretary Kerry worked hard in the east to bring down Hillary in her 2008 primary. Obama, who make balances everywhere & everything, without showing any difference, offered the highest post in his administration, the State Secretary. Secretary Kerry reversed the path Hillary Clinton set in Lankawe is one expression of that. His office is fested with Sinhala Intellectuals. They defeated Susan Rice with Chinese Commission money and brought in John Kerry as the secretary. They fully utilized him. Once it is over, now he is only the curry leaves in the Aappa diplomacy. Mangala has openly said Condoleezza Rice is much more helpful to Lankawe than Secretary Kerry. The path Secretary Kerry takes is 180 degrees relationship with Condoleezza Rice path. It is a substantial insults to Secretary Kerry when Magala indicated that Condoleezza Rice was their most favored Secretary. But the Sinhala Intellectuals are the one worked to bring him to the job. It is the same send off they gave to Condoleezza too. At the end of the war, the time Bush was leaving, all Lankawe’s ministers started to laugh at Americans. They laughed at ambassador Blake as the man who brought the plane Katunayake to save the Leader Prabakaran and brought the ship to Trinco to save Leader Prabhakaran.

    Now they are starting to rework on Hillary Clinton using Chandrika the same way Chandrika used Kathirgamar to work with Condoleezza Rice. They have already laid their Aappa baits to Hillary Clinton, making Secretary Kerry as her enemy and that is why they are ditching him. She must positively respond to this bait and bite it and start to serve them. If she would not scratch their back as they demand, they are waiting to scratch the back of the China and that is how scratch on her face. Their pre-warning to Hillary Clinton that she must work with them is the sales of Hambantota to China. If she would not scratch their back, they will sell Kandy, Nuwara Eliya, Trincomalee, Palali, Batticaloa, Mannar, Jaffna….. all to China. It will be up to Hillary Clinton to bite the bait or bite the bullet.

    Look at all the LTTE sympathisers grieving and rooting over a disappearance of an unknown media personnel. She’s fishing in troubled water, she knew beloved husband was in the company of his mistress at the time the incident took place. The same site revealed how he had been a womanizer and distant from his family. I hardly believe this woman is after justice.
