Exclusive Expose: Serious Corruption Allegations Against Bribery Commissioner Jayantha Wickramaratne Hidden At Bribery Commission By Influence

Confirmed information obtained exclusively by The Colombo Telegraph points to two investigations pending against former Inspector General of Police (IGP) Jayantha Wickramaratne at the Commission to Investigate Allegations of Bribery & Corruption (commonly called ‘Bribery Commission’) being suppressed and covered up.

Two investigations bearing internal file Nos. 1571/2009 and 1574/2009 relate to Wickramaratne and  certain corrupt procurements made by him,  for the “Deyata Kirula” Exhibition held in 2009 at the BMICH, Colombo.

The Colombo Telegraph is reliably informed that the serious allegations that caused the files to be opened are not being acted on, due to undue influence exerted through powerful persons in the ruling regime to sweep these matters under the carpet.

Wickramaratne was widely considered a ‘hatchet man’ for the regime during his time as IGP. Reliable sources also said his wife, Anoma Goonetilleke, a lawyer also lost her standing within the legal profession for failing to stand up for the independence of the legal profession and the judiciary. In this way, they are both considered unquestioning loyalists of the ruling regime.

The members of the Bribery Commission are not independent, after the 18th Amendment to the Constitution. They are chosen by the Executive President, Mahinda Rajapaksa without any effective checks or balances. Many allegations have been made that the Commission is merely a tool of the Rajapaksa regime to harass political opponents or those seen as standing in the way of what the regime wants to do.

Former Presidential Candidate, former General Sarath Fonseka and Chief Justice Shirani Bandaranayake have both been hauled before the Commission. At the same time, the above two files relating to Wickramaratne are gathering dust.

    Any complains? Please note this is how corrupt, lawless Banana Republic with Jungle Law conducts it’s business. A corrupt King is appointed as the Bribery Commissioner to inquire Bribery Cases. A Murderer will inquire into murder cases and so on. If this is not, only we should be surprised. God save former democratic Sri Lanka.

      Former IGP is not “corrupt”. According to Gota & Rajapassa clan.

      If you act against the Rajapassa clan, then you are “corrupt”.

      Former IGP has not committed that sin. He is safe. Until further notice.

      Miracle of Asia!

    BBS^s is supported by GOTA

    Duminda Silva ( most known multi killer thug) is supported by GOTA

    British tourist -murder hambantota Pradesheeya Saba MP – is supported by GOTA and other Rajappakshes

    Mervin – openly violate all rule of all the country but is being supported by Rajapashes.

    So now most known corrupted police offcer is supported by GOTA.

    All these would help napping nation to grasp how their GOTA ^S VISION.

    This country is going bad to worse no one can stop this.The people of this country is not aware of these corrupt practices of the family regime.No media bring theses to the notice of the public as they are equally corrupt like the regime except of a few like Rawaya.The articles and views of Colombo telegraph can do very little as it doesn’t reach the ordinary masses of this country which comprises 80%of the population.So Rajapaksha despotic regime will continue un harm for years to come.

    This commissioner is typical of the high office holders appointed by politicians.
    When the Public Service Commission was abolished,the rot crept into the public service.Now there are no ‘public’ servants – only political lackeys.

    Bribery Commissioner has been bribed to be selective in the way he conducts the affairs of the Bribery Commission. A bribe may be in the form of hard cash, positions, perks and favours to self and family.

    When unsuitable people are appointed to a position which they would not have been chosen for under normal conditions of meritocracy, or if they would be disqualified from holding due to conflict of interest, it can be considered to be a bribe to get things done by the powers that be. Hence it is manifesly clear that the bribe has been given and accepted and the bribe taker is now responding to the bribe.

    So ultimately the Bribery Commission loses all legality and becomes the tool of the executive to harras and defame his opponents. The Briber and the Bribetaker are both equally guilty.

    Sinhala/Buddhists proudly claim Buddhism is a way of life in this island.

    It has never been and will never be on the contrary corruption is the life style choice of the stupid people of this island.

    Therefore we shouldn’t be worried, the best way to deal with it is to privatise corruption and let the market forces determine the price and quantity.

      Long live the Free Market for Corruption in SL!

      “Colombo Corruption Exchange” would be a vibrant market place. I promise you.

      PS: Agree. In reality Sri Lanka’s stupid people practice corruption fanatically. Not Buddhism, Hinduism, Christianity or Islam.

        They may have particular gene regions that would not express to other folks.

        Rajapakshes have turned lanken society into

        – Crime friendly (assaults,hit and run like- murders and abuses of all forms)

        – Corruption friendly – not making wholehearted efforts on free and fair crime investigations of thier ones – enriching nurseries to breed criminals further.

        Eg 01 – Duminda Silva – is above the law
        Eg 02 – Mervin^s killing contract in Waragoda – is above law
        Eg 03 – Julliampitya^s multi murder records – is above law
        Eg 04 – President^s brother in law – who was caught with millions of foreign currencies to have kept at his disposal – just disappeared under the carpet – is above law ( he is nothing but president^s wife^s brother – that is the only qualification him to be the chairman of country ^s airline – airline is multi billion loss industry today) -CBK ^s govts brought profits to srilanka being cooperated with Emirates.

        Eg 05- BBS anti human activities are not investigated – it is alls because that are part of GOTA CHINATHANA – Gota is above law

        I had a chat with a indian businessman in Switzerland today- he said, Rajapakshes are born to destroy the nation. So think the masses in SL today- but they cant rise because of being very scared to life threats.
        Srilanka should be renamed as Rajapakseland – because we are all ashamed to face other nationatlities if it would remain as SRILANKA further.

      Bob,

      Overthrow this regime? Great idea. I support you. Millions will.

      Whom shall we install in the aftermath though? Corrupt, power hungry UNP?

      Sri Lanka’s problems will continue with these two corrupt parties alternating at the top.

      Time for a new thinking.

    What do you think? He is the Bribery Commissioner. By Sri Lankan standards he has to dabble in bribes.

    I have read in Nikolai Gogol’s Dead Souls (Sinhala Translation “Mala Minissu”) a different term for bribery. It says recommendation signed by Prince Hovansky and it means the currency notes signed by the Minister of Finance of Russia.

    It may be that those who are charged with bribery have never taken bribes but only the recommendations signed by the Minister of Finance. Of course it has value but after all it comes to acceptance of a “valuable recommendation” not amounting to bribery.

    What we need to do is educate our children to be currupt not to cheat, lie and steel. Educate them to work hard and be indipendant so that they would not depend on crazy politicians/ This way they can stand on their feet and at least future will be better but sadly the present is a living hell in Sri Lanka. We are afraid to open our mouth knowing the consequences.

    ok ok ok! I get it. We are a screwed up bunch of imbeciles!

    Which one of you wants to come over to Sri Lanka and manage matters?

    Not worth the risk you say? Well, then shut the f… up! You have no right to an opinion when it relates to someone else’s life.

    Freedom of speech you claim? Try telling yourself some truths.
