Fallout Of A Ruling 

By Sarath de Alwis –

Sarath de Alwis

On Friday 4th October, a three-judge bench of the Court of Appeal dismissed the writ application that challenged the validity of the Sri Lankan citizenship of presidential aspirant Gotabaya Rajapaksa. 

“Formal notices of this application should not be issued to the respondents, and the application should therefore be dismissed,” was the terse ruling announced by the President of the Court of Appeal. 

The court is expected to give its reasons in due course. 

The seriousness of the submissions made, and the solemnity of the final ruling offer adequate proof, that the petition was no flippant maverick endeavor by two political partisans.

Gotabaya, a naturalized US citizen was in the country on a visitor’s visa helping his brother’s campaign in 2005. When brother Mahinda Rajapaksa won the Presidency, the obvious choice for the pivotal office of Secretary to the Ministry of Defence  was the sibling who was the military professional in the family. In order to occupy the high office he was obliged to first reclaim his Sri Lankan citizenship.  

In 2003, he had renounced his patriotic birthright in order to obtain US nationality in a painstaking process. 

With the Brother elected executive president, supreme law giver, holder of repository powers and plenary powers, the reverse process was flawless claimed the eminent counsel for Gotabaya.  

The writ application questioned the process he followed. The three-member bench has now made its ruling. The citizenship issue seems to be settled. We will learn more when the court gives its reasons.

The maniacal mob frenzy that erupted in the halls of justice when the ruling was announced is the point of departure of this essay. 

Halfway through the announcement of the ruling, several lawyers and supporters present in court got into frenzied cheering and clapping. Some jumped off their seats. 

“Order!” called the President of the Court of Appeal from the Bench. The senior lawyers tried to restrain the unruly crowd. They tendered an apology to court. 

There was a similar seminal hearing on a writ application during the Rajapaksa regime. A three-member bench of the court of appeal then granted a writ application concerning the select committee hearing on the impeachment of a Chief Justice. The court then granted the petition. No one said ‘hurrah’ or jumped about in the well of the court. 

What is wrong with our politics? 

The Civil War irretrievably changed the terrain and memory of our post-independence politics. 

The politics of the war years has produced a generation of political activists who present a dangerous threat to our accepted patterns of social behaviour in civil life. 

They hold a dangerously different world view in terms of freedom and inviolable human rights. 

The dilemma we confront today, has a historical precedent. 

When Napoleon Bonaparte’s empire was crumbling in 1813, Philosopher and statesman Benjamin Constant issued a powerful condemnation of what we now call militarism.  

It was highly dangerous, “to create in a country … a large mass of men imbued with an exclusively military spirit”. Such a group of men at some point after peace is restored would not shed their attitudes along with their uniforms.  

On the contrary, they would regard the unarmed populace as the ignoble mob that has to be molded into a new culture of grand patriotism.

The rule of law was a useless subtlety that can be manipulated to their whim. Opposition to their ‘weltanschauung’ was disorder that invited immediate suppression. 

Three centuries later those words still ring true. Militarism has no place in modern society.  

In all countries, in all centuries, a confederation of priests has formed within the state, a state apart. In all centuries, and countries, men associated together in the army for long periods have separated themselves from the nation. 

The very soldiers of freedom, infighting for such, conceive a kind of respect for the use of force, regardless of purpose. 

Without knowing it they contract thereby morals, ideas and habits which are subversive of the cause they defend. 

The measures which ensure triumph of war prepares the collapse of the law. 

Law must be calm, often slow, and always protective. The Military Spirit detests the thinking faculties as insipient indiscipline. All legitimate government rests on conviction. 

To make a long story short, during the Rajapaksa decade we ended a thirty year’s war in three short years, and we discovered new paradigms of truth and morality. We learnt to live with mass mediated manufactured truth. 

In politics, ‘truth’ is not what it appears to be. A social theorist has ventured to unravel the complexity of truth in politics.  

Public truths are things of this world. Each society has its regime of truth. Its own politics of truth. These truths were produced by multiple forms of constraints within that society. Such societal truths were conditioned by power. 

Now, we wake up daily, to a world of disputed claims. Sorting out truth from fallacy invariably takes the form of a buried scandal and vanished evidence. 

We heard the mob in the hallowed precincts of the court. Do we return to the old order? 

The first lie we must expose during this presidential election is that all men are equal in our democracy. Contemporary politics under patronal presidentialism operates in the blank space between illusion of freedom and the reality of serfdom. 

All of us are not equal. It is a terrible lie that we should really worry about. We have not quite succeeded in dismantling the ‘authoritative state.’ The essence of the Rajapaksa family rule remains intact.

Factual truth is hostage to political argument. Opinion replaces fact. 

Of course, we don’t expect politicians to be always truthful. But we must not allow the politician’s cynicism to carry the day. That would mean forfeiting our commonsense and abandonment of common decency. 

If we wish to regain our sanity and restore the respect for evidence based factual truth, we must defeat Gotabaya Rajapaksa and the ‘Rajapaksa Family’ at the coming presidential polls.

    Verdict was given in Gotabaya’s citizenship case within 10 DAYS with day-to-day hearings. In the cases of some Tamil political prisoners no verdict has been given even after 10 YEARS! There is one law for the Sinhalese and another law for the Tamils in this shit-hole of a country. Anyone who says that the law is the same for everybody in Sri Lanka must be slippered on both cheeks!

    This Judgement seems to another ploy of Sinhala only Jury verdict. Media reported that Judges said CoA cannot deliver any Jurisdiction on 17A. That claim seems to be set with UNP, in together. In future if any lower court’s verdict has to be hijacked, just say in the court that it was in 1972 constitution, in Soulbury Constitution, in 17A…. something like dead and gone. Judges will dismiss the case and tell the petitioner go Supreme Court. Is this really a constitutional matter to cite SC?

    “ A job for the brother has nothing to do with whether the house will be safely supported on a foundation of that depth” . If that is the condition set by one contractor. Then, we will have to settle that question on the basis of it’s merits.
    All what can be done by us is to tell him that ‘we would decide it on the basis what another contractor’s charges would be for the same work’.
    If the contractor’s reply is going to be “ Come on you trust me don’t you?
    We’ll have tell him ‘ trust is an entirely different matter’ the issue is how deep the foundation has to be to make the house safe “.

    Yes ! Mr Sarath De Alwis you must defeat Gotabaya Rajapaksa at the polls and bring in more Rogues, Robbers, Cheats, Con Men, Wankers, Gays, Queers, Central Bank Robbers, Chaitiya Builders, Church Bombers, Railway Strikers, Doctors with MBBS Strikers, Private Bus Drivers ( road killers), and many more too numerous to mention.
    Mr De Alwis please buy yourself a stock of underwear and keep it in reserve because if your idol Ranil W comes into power he will not hesitate to strip you down to your present underwear in the same manner he stripped the Central Bank and he might go further in stripping you minus your under wear and leaving you naked. That is what you call Democracy and you will have to live with it.
    In the mean time try to amuse yourself with “Dicks Joy”.
    Good luck to you.

      Beetle,
      I suspect that you still remember the famous Tel conversation GoRa had with Fredrica Janz over the incident of sending a special plane the Zurich to fetch a puppy for his wife. My reference to the incident is not about the obvious arrogance displayed by GoRa – a point that should send shivers through body’s of anybody, not just of Sarath de Alwis – but to the puppy itself. If that puppy is still alive, its “relative age” must be just right to become a presidential candidate from the Ra..kse family, in case they run out of men. I think that people like you are so slave minded that you wouldn’t mind even voting for the dog as long as it represent Ra..kse family!

      Dear Beetle

      When you say ” if your idol Ranil comes to power. …” are you sure you aren’t mixing Sarath de Alwis with Shyamon Jayasinghe?

      Sarath can call a spade a spade. Shyamon calls it a shovel. That’s the difference.

    If we want to save the country from being broken into autonomous Federal blocks we must defeat the UNP at the forthcoming elections. ‘Rajapaksa family’ is the lesser evil. If we listened to Sarath Alwis in 2005 where would we be today? Federalism is the stage for the next episode of bloodshed as it is set to be achieved against the will of the majority of the majority. Majority of the majority will revolt.

      Soma,
      Do you think Gotabaya can revoke Into-Lanka accord and get rid of provincial council system? Do you think Federalism created bloodbath in 1958? Who signed Banda-Chelva pact in 1956? Was it UNP or SLFP? Why was bloodbath in 1970 which killed over 10000 Sinhala youth? Was it UNP or SLFP? Creating bloodshed is the characteristic of opportunistic Buddhist Sinhala Fundamentalists like Banda, JRJ, and Mahinda.

      Soma, you have said elsewhere that you are going to vote JVP.
      .
      No, you don’t really contradict yourself. FIRST Preference AKD of the JVP, SECOND for Gota because you want to keep the UNP out. Is that right?
      .
      Forget ideologies and all that. Our main problem is corruption. It will be good if those who understand “how to vote” do so strategically so as to promote a third force which will refuse to enter into “deals”.
      .
      From this point on, exciting campaigning is probably now over. We now come to the dreadfully boring business of seeing how each of the two main parties advertises itself as the guardian of Sinhala-Buddhism.

          Dishonourable Politicians
          .
          The damned UNP introduced the Executive Presidency without getting the approval of the people.
          .
          The damned UNP had obtained a 4/5 ths (or thereabouts) majority at the 1977 General Elections using “First Past the Post”. That enabled JR to pass Procrustean (sic, avoided Draconian) legislation. They introduced Proportional Representation thinking it would FAVOUR THEM, rather than because they felt it MORE JUST.
          .
          The damned UNP didn’t allow Sirima to contest the Presidency in 1982. It was not as though she had got murders committed (quelling the 1971 insurrection was not secretly murdering opponents – which was a Gota specialty).
          .
          The damned UNP didn’t have any General Election c.1982. They kept their 5/6 ths majority (although they considered that system unfair) by conducting the only Referendum ever held.
          .
          The damned UNP believes in manipulation rather than Democracy. Only an asylum-escaped-lunatic would expect those guys to display respect for the “Categorical Imperative”. (Refer Wikipedia entry for that – it’ll do everybody good.)

          Falling OUT OF Love with Soma
          .
          Soma Dear,
          .
          I begin to detect a pattern in your sophistry.
          .
          You stipulate impossible conditions, and then proclaim victory. You are so generous that you will grant Eelam to Tamils, but then stipulate what you know is an impossible condition: that they leave other areas (mainly Wellawatte).
          .
          I see that double standards prevail, but I refuse to use your type of specious argument which is bound to leave your interlocuter feeling outwitted. This constant outwitting is not going to bring about reconcilliation.
          .
          We, Sinhalese, made War on the Tamils. It is irritating to hear expressions like “Humanitarian Operation”. If you pin-point instances where some Sinhalese consciously distinguished between LTTE cadres and (almost always Tiger-sympathising) civilians, you do good, you contribute towards reconcilliation. If you can show actual kindness by Sinhalese towards Tamils, then you can claim kinship to Gautama’s ethics.
          .
          Now you have started stipulating impossible conditions for you to support the JVP. At Election Time, no political party can admit low support. Nor can they afford to “apologise” for past murders of their own. However, from their actions, you ought to discern a sea-change of attitude.
          .
          Quibbling rarely wins friends. Why have you become almost friends with me? I feel that is because I don’t quibble. When disagreeing, I actually disagree.
          .
          I’m now claiming that our progress to becoming lovers is being stymied by your cleverness.

            Dear S_M
            You are blaming me for exposing the true nature of a problem. You seem to adore ostriches.
            1) What can I do if +50% of minorities ( all Tamil speaking people irrespective of their religion caste or the date of arrival) are living outside NE. A ‘solution’ that encompasses at least 80% of all minorities invariably involves physical relocation.
            .
            2) There is an astronomical distance between 5% and 50%.
            I am not prepared to get on to a helicopter promising to take me across Atlantic. That is not to say helicopters don’t serve a useful purpose.
            ,
            The day you realise truth will have to be faced squarely however unpalatable it is I will have won your heart.

    In a country, majority of people are made to be blind .. in favour of their political survival, even if they committed high crimes, people would not stand against them. People are more like hallozinated by their recitals that repeated about their fake abilities.in the days of hiter led germany, their radios telecasted the same on a repeated mode until people became his slaves. that was called gobelles theory. … today kim jong s north korea behaves to the very same manner of hitler. and srilanken media institutions are under threat if they would cross question rajapakshe criminals, those media institutions would face abductions and persecutions round the clock. underworld is spearheaded by rajapakshes supporters. Most of rajaakshes supporters are drug traffickers and high business men that previously imported illegal wares into the country. That included not just drugs trafficking but also banned agro chemicals such as glyposyt. poor young farmer had to pay with their lives, but rajaakshes criminals never stoped it until new govt banned glyposat imports.

    The writer says “If we wish to regain our sanity and restore the respect for evidence based factual truth, we must defeat Gotabaya Rajapaksa and the ‘Rajapaksa Family’ at the coming presidential polls.” — and we must put back Ranil wickremasinghe and Ravi karunanayake and Arjun Mahendran !!!!!!!!!!!!
    When this “Marxist” talk about “democracy” he mean the dictatorship of the proletariat where power has been captured by a bloody revolution, as happened in The October Revolution after WWI when this writer’s hero Trostsky managed to organize a bunch of vodka crazy soldiers to asault the czar, and as happened in other places, the last being in Cambodia under Pol Pot, if we forget the failed efforts of the JVP in 1988-1989 blood shed.

    Why didn’t this writer title his essay as:
    “Retombées d’une décision”?

    This time the writer has got most of his grammar right, unlike the time
    when he penned his infamous “Pere et Fils” article.

    Significant improvement.

    Indeed, a large army may be needed to defeat a terrible bunch of terrorists strongly
    supported by a wealthy diaspora and a large number of NGOs.

    But, that is why, after the war the army was deployed to run hotels, do agriculture, clear mines and also do urban development. The TNA objected to all that and the Ranil W government agreed and dismantled the army.
    Ester Sunday is now ALREADY forgotten by the chattering classes.

    The writer is even grumbling about the gallery behaving as the gallery.
    He thinks things were done better before the 30 year war!

    May be Monsieur Sarath D’Alwis forgot how JRJ reacted to the judges who gave a ruling contrary to what JRJ wanted to hear!
    Thugs associated with Jayawardene’s United National Party (UNP) attacked the houses of the judges and an unsuccessful attempt was made to impeach them. Ranil was a member of that cabinet and has learned well.
    Since then bad things have happened, but NOTHING as bad – even when judges were impeached illegally (Shiran B and Mohan P.) their houses were not attacked by thugs. There was NO big army during JR’s time.
    Useless appealing to a 19th century post-Napoleonic writer to justify nonsense.

    “If we wish to regain our sanity and restore the respect for evidence based factual truth, we must defeat Gotabaya Rajapaksa and the ‘Rajapaksa Family’ at the coming presidential polls.”

    It was very brave of you to write that Sarath ……… and the piece succinctly gets to the heart of the truth of the situation; the distilled truth.

    Not many were born yesterday …….. let’s all be adults here ; even briefly …………. A well-known serial-killer is dressed-up and cocooned in a softer cuddly lovable image …….. and is trotted out for people to cosy up to …….. even the kids are flocking

    It’s not as if people in their fleeting rational moments don’t know what is happening ……… but fear takes over and people have to choose sides for survival …….. people invariably – even pretend to – take the side that can cause them the greatest harm ……. there is nothing much to fear from the Ranil/UNP side; one is still safe if one is with them or against them ………. not so with the Rajapakses; people have to be very visible in their support for their protection and safety ………. there are some subtle clues even in the forum ……… people giving their full names and place of residence. :))

    “Singhalese-Buddhists” will vote en masse for their own enslavement; to give away their freedoms ……….

    The factual truth in this case was two fold, A) A Gotabaya victory looming large UNP did a last ditch effort to eliminate Gotabaya from the contest by an imaginary technicality and failed. B) Gotabaya is a citizen of Sri Lanka and is not a citizen of another country and therefore is qualified to contest. The molehill Sarath de Alwis so desperately trying to project as a mini Everest is a bit of cheering by an enthusiastic crowd of junior lawyers some of whom came from as far as Australia and their enthusiasm was natural although not appropriate and were in fact apologized for. Their level of enthusiasm rightly so was proportionate to the level of threat that loomed over a candidacy, a threat if actualized was similar to the cowardly act of JR stripping Mrs B of her civic rights to prevent her from contesting.

    Yes, the ‘lawyers’ who cheered in the court exposed their mob mentality and their servility to the Criminal Rajapaksa Family. They behave in this disgraceful manner because (1) they didn’t get a proper upbringing; (2) didn’t receive a proper legal education (most of them cheated their way through the law school); and (3) they don’t have any self respect or even basic human decency.

    At the risk of appearing to be heretical here, I wish to point to a serious flaw in the crux of Mr De Alwis’ ‘concerns’, in the interest of pointing to the folly and ultimately the lack of scruples in his position of being outraged about public support for gotabhaya Rajapakse..
    =
    Despite being one of the most vociferous defender of the neocolonial framework of the so-called ‘human rights’. (at least on website), Mr Alwis seems to have developed a colic about the spontaneous show of public support for GR, following the announcement of the court decision on his citizenship. His utter repudiation of the elation of GR’s supporters seems to have no end.
    =
    The nub of the issue seems to be that according to the view from the moral high horse Mr Alwis seems to be eternally perched on, public support for values different to his own should be disallowed, and repudiated. This belief shows a peculiar understanding of so-called ‘democracy’ that is plain and simply. the majority preference (that Mr Alwis seems to disregard, or conveniently ignore).

    This can’t go on forever …….. things will come crashing down. ……… When? ……… No one knows! …….. Sumanadasa’s guess is as good as mine.

    But when that happens, the banks all over the world, will be the first to get into trouble.

    And governments around the world have been very sneaky about it …….. and put in place traps while you were asleep.

    In 2008, governments “bailed-out” financial institutions ………… but now there is a thang put in place called “bail-in.” ……. In short, what the whole shebang means is …….. when is strife, banks can confiscate your money in excess of the guaranteed limit and use it as they please. One of the first countries to do this was Cyprus.

    The guaranteed limit varies according to the country/zone ……. Euro zone has a limit of 100,000 Euros (I think,) other places $250,000 …….. and so on ……. depends on the place where ye live – check it out with ye bank/government. And in most places the guaranteed-limit is limited to the institution not the accounts. ……. i.e. if you have 500,000 Euros in Bank-A in 5 different accounts, only 100,000 of that is guaranteed.

    So spread ye money in several banks up to the guaranteed limit. ……….. try to safeguard ye hard earned money.

    if gota wins a white van will be waiting for you
    the decision only proves gota is a dual citizen
    the real question is whether the us has accepted his renunciation
    as i said before the public has not been shown the document

    SL society is so corrupt and lost basis of differentiating good v bad.

    In another new article I saw the guy Thenuwara has been bombarded with death threats.

    When our great Murali was called a Chucker, the whole Aussie crowd jumped off their chairs shouting Hear Near or something to that effect.
    It was only the Tie Coat members in Members stand who didn’t jump although they also had very pleasant smiles.

    Poor react in that manner when they are passionate..
    When these gentleman brought Yahapalanaya , they must have expected all our punters to be polished like them .
    And show know no emotions even when they are faced with situations which they are passionate about..
    But our great majority are not like those Tie Coat Members on the Stands .

    Ironically not only the great Muralaitharan but also his beautiful Missus has thrown her weight behind Nandasena.
    May be they are also passionate about something there too..

    An Ideal President would be a person belonging to no political party and above partisan politics. But that is not possible any more and hence it would be best for minorities to boycott and stay aloof and silently watch the country going to dogs. The Minorities should not make the same mistake they committed in Jan .2015.
