Exposé: Sirisena-Wickremesinghe Intervene To Protect Corrupt FCID Chief Cop

Intervention at the highest levels of Government has permitted Senior DIG Ravi Waidyalankara to continue as head of the Financial Crimes Investigation Division (FCID) despite serious allegations of corruption and sabotage of sensitive investigations being levelled against the high-ranking cop.

In May 2018 Waidyalankara was given a service extension of eight months by the UNP-led Government when he reached the retirement age of 60. The extension was granted despite opposition from the IGP, the National Police Commission and several other quarters.

Waidyalankara is currently under investigation by the Police Special Investigations Unit (SIU) and the Commission to Investigate Allegations of Bribery and Corruption. The Bribery Commission is currently investigating SDIG Waidyalankara over his alleged assets.

Monarch Apartment

One such “asset” under scrutiny is the Monarch Apartment the senior DIG allegedly purchased in his son Asela Waidyalankara’s name. It was previously reported that the Monarch Apartment No 16/A2 is registered in Asela Waidyalankara’s name. Other properties allegedly purchased by SDIG Waidyalankara – several using frontmen – have also come to light including a prime property in Colombo 05 that was purchased in 2017-2018. (Details to follow)

Colombo Telegraph can now reveal that SDIG Waidyalankara has deliberately sabotaged several high profile corruption probes involving top members of former President Mahinda Rajapaksa’s regime.

A lawyer by training SDIG Waidyalankara has been able to subvert or divert several investigations into key players in the Rajapaksa administration including Sajin Vaas Gunewardane, Gamini Senarath, Thiru Nadesan and Dilith Jayaweera that were originally under the purview of the FCID.

Additionally, SDIG Waidyalankara is alleged to be hand-in-glove with a notorious money launderer indicted in the US-Sri Lankan businessman Rienzie Edwards. A US court ordered Edwards assets frozen after he was indicted on money laundering charges in 2017 but Colombo Telegraph learns that the funds in several bank accounts in Sri Lankan banks were dispersed after the order was communicated to the FCID.

Law enforcement circles are also buzzing with information that SDIG Waidyalankara has made several attempts to smuggle crucial documents out of the FCID headquarters in Fort. At least one such attempt was shortly before the top cop boarded a flight to Singapore where several suspects in the highly sensitive MiG-27 deal investigation are known to be in residence. More recently Waidyalankara was also suspected of attempting to smuggle files pertaining to the Krrish deal investigation out of the FCID HQ.

The two investigations Waidyalankara tried to sabotage are directly linked to key members of the Rajapaksa family – namely Gotabaya Rajapaksa and Namal Rajapaksa.

Colombo Telegraph learns that SDIG Waidyalankara is being afforded protection from investigation from both President Maithripala Sirisena and Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe. In spite of sustained allegations of corruption and collusion with suspects in major cases his own unit is handling, Waidyalankara continues to keep his job as head of the premier police agency investigating complicated financial crimes. Concerns are rife that the crooked cop will be granted a further service extension in March 2019, allowing him to continue as FCID chief and jeopardise what is left of the unit’s major cases.

In the 3 February issue of the Sunday Times the newspaper’s political columnist wrote about corrupt police officials who had “benefitted and became filthily rich”.

“As a result of this, there is only one breed – some very corrupt Police officials – who benefitted and became filthily rich. Believe it or not, some are millionaires. Tragic enough, the two sides continue to woo them” the Sunday Times Political Editor noted. The line is strongly believed to be a thinly veiled reference to SDIG Waidyalankara under whose purview many of these most serious corruption investigations were placed when the Yahapalanaya Government came to power in 2015.

The Sunday Times political column is accurate in that Waidyalankara was the UNP choice to head the FCID, but has become an important asset to all political factions fighting to keep corruption investigations and litigation at bay. The SDIG’s valiant attempts to save senior officials of the former Rajapaksa regime has won him favour with President Sirisena who is in turn seeking to curry favour with Mahinda Rajapaksa in order to win his support to become the SLFP-SLPP candidate at the 2019 presidential election. Colombo Telegraph can also reveal that President Sirisena has been complicit in interference with high profile investigations. After taking over as SLFP Chairman in 2015 in order to keep his party ranks together Sirisena directly intervened to stop FCID corruption probes against senior members of the SLFP including Susil Premajayanth and Anura Priyadarshana Yapa. The UNP has also used SDIG Waidyalankara to stall corruption investigations against members of the former Rajapaksa regime they were courting for various political deals. High up on this list is Gamini Senarath, former Chief of Staff to former President Mahinda Rajapaksa who was finally indicted in the Permanent High Court after it was established last year.

    Corruption at the highest level. UNP, SLFP, SLPP makes no difference. They are all together as One Big Club. The masses are being taken for a good ride by these good for nothing politicians. God save Sri Lanka.

      So what is the solution for the people?

      1. French style revolution

      2. Russian style revolution

      3. American style revolution

      4. Elect JVP and hope that they will clean up the pathetic mess.

          “How about #4, they appear to be reformed and might do a good job in cleaning up all the cesspits “

          I wouldn’t think so.
          JVP has to confess, own up, repent, beg for mercy, say sorry, …………………. as many other war criminals/racists need to do.

          JVP needs to review all its past ideology(?) including its fascistic attitude, one party rule, a dictatorship, Sinhala/Buddhist supremacy, ………… anti minority policies, …………….. consultation with people before they announce their policy decision, ………………. and throw all their outdated old guards out of the party or out of its politburo.

            Agree, the JVP needs clean up its act first with no ambiguity, what so ever. Not least dismantle the opaque, politburo-culture from a by-gone era. See what just happened to Venezuela.
            Cheers!
            PS: If the JVP steps up to the plate, will the corrupt, racist minority parties follow suit and rally behind the new JVP banner? Have you consulted them about that?

            Emil, I agree.
            .
            There essentially two Elections that are vitally important for the over-all running of the country: the Parliamentary and the Presidential. The Presidential has to be held during the eleven months; Parliamentary within eighteen months or so, but they could be held earlier.
            .
            Local government elections were held a year ago, and lots of rogues got elected. Which part controls may not matter much, but we must have honest individuals.
            .
            Provincial Councils are a burden on the country, but they must be held for most provinces right now, and it would be best if all are held together. It may be good if the entire system is scrapped, but if we have them as part of the system, the Elections Commissioners are quite right in insisting that they must be held within the next two or three months.
            .
            There is a great need for all citizens to learn how to vote strategically. Will expand on that tonight.

            I am sorry the JVP still has a long way to go when it comes to winning the hearts and minds of people in order to translate the support into solid votes.

            It has lots of skeletons in its cupboard though not as much as the state.

            If you listen to its general rhetoric and strip away all those soundbites JVP will be left with no clothes.

            It has no policies or programes to deal with and reach an amicable settlement with minorities. It still believes all encompassing Socialism (defined by Rohana) is the only solution or the panacea which it believes would solve all ills of this island. The JVP still does not believe in two way conversation. Remember JVP opposed every successive deal with minorities, then went to bed with Mahinda.

            Some years ago AKD apologised for what it did in the past on BBC Sinhala Service in London. Within a day or two one of his party’s old rotten guard repudiated AKD.

            JVP is not interested in upholding its moral responsibility towards the elusive investigation into war crimes and crimes against humanity (committed between 5th April 1971 and 9th January 2015). JVP has been sitting on the fence perhaps it does not want to antagonise security forces or its Sinhala/Buddhist patriots.

            The question is whether JVP is true to itself.

            I happen to meet many JVP supporters. They seem to talk to themselves, tedious monologue.

      Washington’s puppet, Bondscam Ranil has been preaching “forgiveness and forgetting in Jaffna. RW is hoping that Lankans would forget and forgive the Bondscam at the CBSL and hid corruption including protecting US citizen and war criminal Avant Guard Gota Rajapaksa from prosecution– at the behest of RW;s Trumpland handlers who have organized the bipartisan UNP-SLFP corruption racket in the cesspit called the Parliament in the name of “reconilliation”
      Now US bots are massaging the Drug epidemic Fake News stories to fill the news to distract Lankans from the real threat to the nation which is, Corrupt Politicians and their foreign backers who have put Lanka into a massive Debt trap and IMFs Bailout Business!

      See, already 4 weeks ago, Incumbent president pleaded that the report from CID on the alleged assasination plot of him and his condom support-Gotler would be relased in two weeks. Now even after 4 weeks, they are still waging it…
      And law and order is kept for him futher, not allowing PM to react on the awaiting investigations/verdicts of number of high criminal cases.
      Not even JVPrs seem to rasie the question, as to why the bugger President keeps it further.
      BP Sillysena should be removed from our sight, no matter, if he let alone today would end up in 6-feet-under.
      Sirisena s silly remarks in the parliment yesterday, boiled up any decent people that expected other way around from him.. simply the justice: No doubt bugger has hardly read the responsiblities and the composition of the Constitutional coucil. He louds to have brought 19 Amendment, but he himself violated it as no other right ?

    These stories surprise us no more.
    .
    Thanks, Colombo Telegraph for highlighting all this, but most of us readers know that all the articles in the world if written in English, are not much use.
    .
    When I said this yesterday, the essentially pro-Rajapaksa commenter, Soma, said s/he hoped that the man calling himself “Sinhala_Man” ought to be doing it. I would, if I could. I do talk about these things with humble villagers etc. in Sinhala, but I’ve lost whatever fluency I possessed in writing.

    People of all walks of life want to get out of this country. It’s heart-wrenching what we have been doing to our society. Some of the examples I could give you are almost incredible. Yet the senior members of both the major parties seem unwilling to speak out. Oooops! Forgot Ranjan Ramanayake.
    .
    Writers like Grusha Andrews must continue to do to that, but we do not have enough people speaking out boldly on these matters.
    .
    Of the parties in the South represented in Parliament, only the JVP is willing to highlight corruption. It’s got to be them or Nagananda Kodituwakku.

      Do all Sinhalese have crooked genes in them? I am keeping the Tamils out of this, because the absolute political power has not been in their hands since Independence. As far as I know, even a modest apartment at Monarch Apartments (former Oberoi Hotel) is in the Rs.200 million range. It is only crooks like Ravi K who have access to this type of money.
      BTW, where is the Inland Revenue Dept in all of this. Are they in the take too? Where are our “clean” religious leaders who claim, day and night, they saved the country for over 2,500 years.

        You must be kidding.
        Your leader VP (the psychopath) enjoyed absolute power at least for not less than 25 years. He determined the life and death of many, collected large amounts of cash and gold, had many to carry his b***s inside and outside the island, worked tirelessly for the Sinhala/Buddhists, ultimately rewarded Gota and his goons with Gold and cash, ………….. many Tamil commission agents became very rich over night, …………

        “Where are our “clean” religious leaders who claim, day and night, they saved the country for over 2,500 years.”

        That is about US $1,100,000.

        It is all business, the Para-business. Are the Para-Sinhala (mean IQ 79) worse than the Para-Tamils (mean IQ 79) even though both arrived illegally from Southern India, and have more or less Para Indian genes?

    It is sickening to read these types of exposes. Sickening to know how our politicians fool us by convincing us that they will save us. We have always wondered how Sajin escaped the net, how yoshitha, namal, basil, shiranthi, gota, wimal, tiran, et all’s cases are consistently postponed. We read how magistrates and judges admonish the police and the AG’s Dept for coming to courts unprepared and forgetting to bring in vital documents. This is a grand game designed to sentence small fry taking bribes of Rs.5000/- while the mega thieves laugh at all of us on the steps of the pillars of justice. And what of the media? They never ask the right questions. 3 weeks ago the S.Ob exposed how this top cop removed documents from the fcid office and boarded a flight to Singapore where several suspects in the highly sensitive MiG-27 deal investigation are known to be in residence. No mainstream media followed up on this story.

    urgently require the police commission to suspend this crook and appoint a clean cop to complete these investigations of the corrupt Rajafuksa regime. If RW and MS have intervened to prevent prosecution both these shits too must be jailed for obstruction of justice. Bastards.

    Such things will never end in Sri Lanka. The politicians, especially the biggest, MR, GR, MS, RW are behind it. The bigger the rouge the more they protect them. The public don’t care!!!!!! That’s the problem.

    SDIG Ravi Waidyalankara is a small fry. Many like him are bribed to protect the bigger sharks like our political crooks that operate with impunity. Second to none are our judges, lawyers, businessmen and black media that defend these criminals. The entire judicial system was buried, thereby allowing these crooks to rob billions and launder the loot overseas. For example, those who back crooks like Gotler used another General and war hero to smuggle jewellery and contraband using his diplomatic and UN privilege into the USA. Most of the wealth they have managed to amass by stealing, seizing properties that are undisclosed in their assets are registered with their henchman under fraudulent businessmen, their fronts in shady organizations. Most of our law enforcement agencies including the CID are run by corrupt officials who in turn have shares in these companies. For example the Carlton Sports Network was a scam and a business front to cheat the cricket board and circumvent local broadcast and media royalties that the State was deprived-of. These files are buried by the FCID. Avant garde, Rakna Lanka was another. This is why it is crucial to appoint someone like Field Marshal Sarath Fonseka as the Minister of Law and Order. All law enforcement and special operations tasked under the Police, STF, anti-narcotics, criminal, financial crimes divisions and intelligence agencies to be put under that Law and Order ministry. Dr. Mahatir of Malaysia grappled a similar problem like overhear during his previous term when his government ordered their Police, intelligence divisions, customs, ports security and border protection agency to investigate high profile cases. When Dr. Mahatir got word that his own agencies were failing him, he set a new precedent by threatening his law enforcement that most of those under performing officials and agencies will be either privatized or outsourced to foreign firms, and that his plan will make public servants redundant if they fail to deliver.

      In Malaysia only one group of politicians were corrupt and international Community tried their best. Now it is settled because only one group is corrupt. Maynamar can not be caught because they are for the country and not for money. In Srilanka, the whole parliament is for wealth and they don’t care to bend to the international community who rapes the country.

    A lesser bandied name Rienzie Edwards in the Decade of Corruption appeared in web news in November 2015 as follows:
    (Apparently, this Policeman was his Consultant aided and abetted by the Two Leaders of G.G. then?)

    “This Rajapakse henchman who arrived in SL from England, and while masquerading as an investor , was lavishly spending in millions of dollars buying a property every month in SL. Hereunder are the properties Edward Rienzie bought :
    * Colombo Asha Central hospital spending US dollars 250 million
    * Thalpe Frangipani Tree hotel spending US dollars 3 million
    * Thembili house hotel Galle , for Rs. 1.2 million.
    * Balapitiya White Villa hotel for US dollars 1.5 million dollars
    * Kandy Mansion hotel for Us dollars 3.5 million
    * Two properties in Colombo 07 belonging to famous architect Jeffrey Bawa for US dollars 2.8 million.
    * In addition he purchased Ahangama Maruyana Hotel , and Nuwara eliya Villa Rice hotel , whose prices are not known.
    * In Kandy , Sigiriya and Trincomalee too he purchased properties paying US dollars 10 million approximately. These purchases are still being investigated.
    * In India too at Jaipur he purchased properties spending US dollars 5 million.
    It is incredible but true , although Edward Rienzie bought all these properties, there is no source of origin for this prodigious wealth . What is even more incredible and shocking than the mysterious Rienzie is the colossal wealth of the Rajapakses . It is this huge wealth illegally amassed by the Rajapakses that have been utilized by Rienzie to make these massive purchases. In other words, Rienzie was the channel for the money laundering activities of the Rajapakses”

    I wonder how many remember the incident when Sillysena’s son Daham and a gang of his hoodlum friends mercilessly assaulted SDIG Ravi Waidyalankara’s son on a beach on the East coast of Lanka when Silly was just a mere minister under Marapakse? Remember how Silly went to the hospital bed of SDIG Ravi Waidyalankara’s son and pleased for forgiveness? Remember also, how SDIG Ravi Waidyalankara’s son was spoken of as being an upstanding young man who was only trying to protect the modesty of his lady companions from the thuggish Daham and his mob?

    It’s all getting clear now…. SDIG Ravi Waidyalankara is given privilege and with it the means to purchase multi-million rupee apartments (does anyone have a count?), and SDIG Ravi Waidyalankara’s son also gets to share in this privilege by acquiring the means to purchase his own apartment at the Monarch!

    Has anyone stopped to ask where all this money comes from?

    And to think this uniformed bastard was made the head of the FCID!!! And the conniving, constitution bashing peasant Sillysena won our trust to become President of the republic.

    What more evidence does Lanka need to get on the streets and lobby to oust all of these louts in one go.

    Mother Lanka, I weep for thee!

      Sickened by the mega-crooks in the major Parties, some readers are resigned to the thought
      the JVP may be the way out. For these men/women, I might mention Mahinda Wijesekera,
      Booruwansa were frontline JVP’ers. They were easily seduced with, arguably, smaller “lollies” The principled, once firebrand Marxist, Vasu fell similalry by the wayside too.

      As to The “Sinhala Buddhist super patriot” General, don’t forget even before he assumed Govt office he started his “game” Those in the know then said demands were made on the basis of per grenade and per bullet – using his close family members. Foreign experts and media men cynically commented the war went on for far longer than it should have. That thousands of young Sinhala lads lost their lives unnecessarily in the interim mattered little to these ambitious beasts in human form.

      when you ready to get rid of them, they have enough time hand over sri lanka to forigners. foreigners already have put foundation to change sri lanka history through Ranil and on the way to change constitution. Today Sri lanka run by Ranil and Tamil and Indian are the major part of this Western conspiracy.
      for now, Sinhalese only option is seek help of Pakistan ISI. Pakistan do not like to see Sri lanka go on the hand of Western or Indian. Pakstan knows once Tamil Tigers massacre Sinhalese and Muslim as a part of Tamil indian, and western Christian drive to claim large part of Sri lanka land.
      The ISI can help getting rid of these conspirators and bring up a genuine Sinhalese Buddhist leader. ISI can do good covert operation to get rid of these fake Sinhalese once for all . I do not need to list names, ISI knows who I means. We will pay gratitude to ISI

    If Srilanka to go forward, people must bring in Pallewatte/Naganada as a team, if they split then the Blue/Green/Red goons will no doubt will return to power. That will be the end of Srilanka. The brain drain will continue, poor will suffer. People please NO to MR,MS,RW or AK

    Corruption, Corruption and more Corruptions. Demon, and a scourge to progression and good society. It is there in all parts of the World, the US, UK, China, India and all of Africa etc. The level of corruption in Sri Lanka is overwhelmly very high. It cannot be irradiated because it has infiltrated everywhere, from the HIGHEST Offices of the land , the parliamentarians and to low offices, but must be controlled. The solution is to elect good and patriotic LEADERS and sincere governance of the people. The mass must wake up to this.

    Are there any UNP and SLFP sopporters still hoping to bring these two so called Party leaders to power again?. instead they ought to be brought before the law sooner than later for the heinous crime in preventing and protecting such a traitor. We understand his appointment to this position is by PM . Do the citizens of our country need any more proof to understand who the real architects of corruption are. Now we clearly see who the real culprits are. All these politicians past and present have cheated the unsuspecting people for the past five decades or more and they still continue to carry on as if nothing has happened. You politicians should do well to remember that their is a spiritual dimension to politics, a day will come when you will be thrown out lock stock and barrel, we think that day is not too far. One cannot imagine you two leaders posing as staunch Buddhists adherents could descend to such low levels. Lord Buddha must be moving in his grave.

    Native Vedda !
    You have made me a fool with your past posts which created in me you are one of the often mistaken Gentlemen as a racist. But the following entry in your post of 22nd in response to the comments of ‘Dravidian’ on the21st. has made me think you are not unbiased anymore. Your comments contain the following words:-

    ‘You must be kidding.
    Your leader VP (the psychopath) enjoyed absolute power at least for not less than 25 years. He determined the life and death of many, collected large amounts of cash and gold, had many to carry his b***s inside and outside the island, worked tirelessly for the Sinhala/Buddhists, ultimately rewarded Gota and his goons with Gold and cash, ………….. many Tamil commission agents became very rich over night, …………
    What more do you think Tamil crooks lack?’

    You may well know, VP had not taken a cent for him and his family. He had served the people with his sweat and blood and nobody can refute this fact.

    Can you tell us where did all the monies in the Eelam Bank and who took the cash and jewellery of the Tamils who had deposited in the Bank when the army took over?
    How about the millions in the colombo banks frozen and seized by the Government accounted ?
    Your comments even after having read this article looks to me you are in no way different from the Mara Ranil Silly group.

    CT readers and the Tamils deserve fair justice after all.

    FCID is Ranil’s baby. How come President is at fault there.

  • 3
    0

    Here are some very pertinent questions to ask:

    Who introduced Ravi W to Ranil W for appointment as
    FCID head. The FCID chief was in Jaffna then. The person
    who got him down to Colombo is a staunch UNPer who
    is now hand in glove with the opposite side.

    Who is Rienzie Edwards? Was he not invited to invest in
    Sri Lanka by a turn coat minister who is fighting the sidelines
    to be presidential candidates. Naah Win got a wad of dollars
    on Rienzie’s deals and was in Nuwara Eliya with Rienzie.

    There is a Dole who was officially translator at FCID. In real
    terms he was a former SP who was a collector. When a
    petition is received or a complaint is probed, he went around
    asking people to pay privately and get away. This former
    Intelligence officer was once caught issuing clearance certificates
    to Tamil expatriates for Rs 10,000 each. He is still on collection
    duty with another lawyer.

    Here is a little known secret about Widyalankara.

    Between 1997 and 2001 he was the Grand Master of Freemasonry in Sri lanka, and was’ Worshipful Master’ of the Sphinx Lodge that meets at the Victoria Masonic Temple, the District Grand Lodge of Sri Lanka (DGLSL),Victoria Masonic Temple, No: 60, Sir Mohamed Macan Marker Mawatha, Galle Face, Colombo 03, on the 4th Monday each month of the year with the Installation Meeting on the 2nd Saturday in December. With him becoming the Head of FCID, his name disappeared from all Masonic literature.
    -Currently there are a number of other armed forces members who are Freemasons

    Hope this provides answers to his protection of others and the reciprocity of others toward him.
    THis world is much more complex than we imagine.

    CC wouldn’t approve Judges to the Top jobs if they worship even in Malwatta.
    That is how independent the Yahapalana Independent Commissions are.

    So how come Dr Ranil’s Police Commission tolerate this Dude when he is not going after the “biggest crooks” in the Nation like Rajapaksas.

    Besides, Dr Ranil the Yahapalana PM procreated this F******CID and delivered it too…
    Wonder where Dr Ranil’s mate IGP Pujitha is?….

      As tradition demands a Hatana (War Poem) should have written in praise of Dr Gota.
      C A Chandraperuma wrote a book titled Gota’s B***s. Shamindra Ferdinando is still looking for words to describe Gota’s B***s.

      Do you think Ambassador Bandula Jayasekara would be interested in writing Gota Hatana? You should encourage him to do something for the country and its former national Hangman. Do you think Ambassador Bandula Jayasekara is a public intellectual at par with Dr Gota?

    Just don’t blame Ravi Waidyalankara alone. No doubt he is corrupt
    and has made his millions. There is no no gainsaying about it.

    Just take a look at how it came about. Sagala, as a Minister, was
    stalling all investigations. He was passing down information to the
    Rajapaksa family. He was getting all the report. Ravi W was aware
    of this. So the best thing he thought would be to give the files
    himself and make money. That worked.

    sSagala did this for Ranil who though Sirisena will otherwise become
    strong and overshadow him. Now it has boomeranged on the manipulator
    par excellence.

    The more they rob, the more they become rich. The
    more they become rich, the more they get away. That
    is the lesson Wickremesinghe’s marapalanaya has
    taught us.

    See what a cop who knows has said. That SP, a former
    intelligence man, is now a millionaire and has brought
    even a new car. All by threatening people who received
    funds from abroad into their banks. Ravi W sends him
    around. Ask any Pettah businessman and he will tell you
    how it is done. Is it not a shame?

    This is how Bond robbers have survived.

    Sri Lankan Judicial/Legal process is of a questionable quality! The head of Navy who was part of abducting youth is protected by the President. He also protects this guy. President also allows Mahinda who jumped from one party to another and should have lost his seat to hold the position of the Leader of the Opposition. Further the President who was pronounced by the court to have violated the constitution still holds the position without resigning. What Yahapalanaya is this, it looks more like Yakapalanaya.

    The intervention by MS and by RW to protect the allegedly corrupt Chief Policeman in FCID is really a bleat “Protect Me”
