Lakshman Hulugalle

Hulugalle, also referred to as ‘Hula’ was relieved from his duties as the Director General of the MCNS earlier this month after a scandal involving the transfer of 23 policemen from the Organised Crimes Division who raised a Town Hall casino allegedly run by his paramour. President Mahinda Rajapaksa dissolved the MCNS retroactively from November 1st after racy details about Hulugalle’s liaison with businessman Gamini Nettikumara’s spouse came to light and he was found to have abused his power in a bid to rescue his paramour.

Hulugalle is a staunch supporter of Defence Secretary, Gotabaya Rajapaksa. The former continues to hold his posts as a director at the National Livestock Development Board and the Commercial Bank.

Meanwhile Colombo Telegraph learns that Hulugalle claimed that he had overdosed on several dozen of anti depression tablets. In Sri Lanka suicides rates, although down compared to the 90’s, are still high enough to cause concern, as at least one case is reported in newspapers every week. According to experts mental health literacy is very poor in Sri Lanka. To seek advice from suicide prevention experts please contact ;

      How come this clown Hullugalle is on the Board of the Commercial Bank? That bank is said to be one of Lanka’s best, but with this Gota the CORRUPT KILLER”S stooge on board that bank will not be safe! I shall certainly pull my funds from the Commercial Bank and go to HSBC. COm Bank should have refuse to have Hullugalle on the board in the first instance!

      The corruption in the business and financial sector in Sri Lanka – with so-called blue chip companies like JHK planning to run Casinos to bail out the Jarrapassas from the coming economic melt down in ridiculous today. Business and corporate sectors are rife with corruption and cronyism and politicization.. There is NO CORPORATE RESPONSIBILITY or ETHICS in the business sector today. Same goes for Banks – including Commercial Bank that should refuse to have UNEDUCATED Gota’s Stooge, Hullugalle, go anywere near it!

        The Govt. has enough shares in Com Bank to have one of its nominees on the Board, and hilariously he was handling the Corporate Social Responsibility part of the Bank, so that he could get his pic in the papers.

        It is time the Com Bank board request the Govt. to appoint someone in his place with an unblemished record of integrity and social responsibility.

        It is BAD for the bank to have a proven shady character like this on their Board.

        Thankfully, he has not been able to raid the bank except for falsifying his expense claims on the CSR junkets on behalf of the bank, and instead raided the NLDB to the disgust of its employees.

        This suicide attempt was purposely unsuccessful as he is craving some sympathy and his long suffering wife is all he has to turn to after shitting on her.

      Hullugalle and Nethiskumara and their common “wife” should be locked up and a full scale investigation done of the casino and money lending businesses with politicians BLACK MONEY at SALAKA – which is a filthy, unhygenic stink hole at Union Place.. can be properly INVESTIGATED. The public have a right to know about all the balck money that is circulated via Casinos.
      This scam along with the Heroin haul of the Prime Minister and the alcohol scam of Jonston Fernando and other Ministers should INVESTAGETED by the CID. Dimu Jayaratne and Johnston Fernando the chief sustpects along with Hulla and Nethikumra MUST be arrested and put behind bars. Since these politicians and their cronies who break the law will not let a proper investigation be carried out as long as they are free and not locked up. The UNP opposition should demand arrest of these UPFA suspects in these 3 cases – so that a proper investigation into the CORRUPTION may be conducted by the police.

        The Name Hulugalla sounds Kandyan and if so having a common wife is not a problem. Yet knowing that Netthikumara is from low country, it is not possible to assume that his wife is a common wife enabling the husband to enjoy “Eka Gei Kema”. Now that the social integration in Uda Rata and Pahatha Rata is happening at a very high speed, it is possible to assume that Pahatha Ratiyans have also been influenced by the Kandyan tradition. Under such circumstances locking the two with the common wife up in one cell will not make a difference.

      Mueez…!! You are the identity of the typical major foolish Sri Lankan society. I have never ever come across you worrying about the weak & voiceless poor man’s society of this country who suffer the most in the hands of these sort of animals.

      I agree that as human , we should be ready to forgive another !!? But should never forget their cruelty. This happened to VP and his clans of predators !!? This cruel creature begins the agonizing part for MaRa and his Hyenas of Serengeti National Park.

      These jokers thinks that they can continue to fool all the people all the times and people like you profess that kindness, forgiveness and human values are to be upheld only by poor man – not by these creatures !!?

      I am awaiting for the day of the pathetic end of MaRa & his predators….like the way the world saw the end of an animal called VP.

This ass of a husband sadly dont have a spine to kick her in her ass and throw her out of his life and his home…

      Laksman Hulugalle, aka Borugalle, Lying -stone, was the major Shill and Liar for the MaRa Regime. His reputation overall is so bad, may be the Mara regime wanted him out and it is better for them if he committed suicide… as he is disposable.

      Other shills and goons of the regime beware… you are disposable too…unless you take alternate remedies…..

        I cant see it the way bloody MR thugs lead us today.

        See after Chewingum (CHOGM), they dont utter a single word about so called progress they have made by meeting state leaders. … and even today, they have kept it hidden, how much they wasted for the the SARUKEs (circus). They just say, even dare to say that it was not much that the country spent… saying that all the locations were built prior to commence it.. bla bla.
        People have to bear the unnecssary burdens today just because of their wastages and then unforseen corruption levels whatever they handled it..

        See, the latest that his close ones are reported to have robbed valubale items in international airports. … this is the most serious issue actually, they dont even charge for that..

        This man is absolutely terror to srilanka. Collective steps eleminated Prabakaran and his terror, but newly form terror by MR should be elemintated soon by Hague.. this is my great wish at this sacred afternoon of Europe.

    Hula’s suicide attempt reminds me the former strong man DIG Vass Gunawardana’s Mosquito coil consuming suicide attempt , both are/were busy looking after their own individual interests while doing all the dirty work for the Junta , in the end one had to pay for the crimes which he committed hiding behind the Uniform and the other one is not far away from following suit.

      Srilal,”in the end one had to pay for the crime which he
      committed hiding behind the uniform.” Only a hand full is
      caught and that’s too because of their stupidity of going
      over limits.I would bet more than 80% of high rankers are
      corrupt and safe and we fail to punish them.The irony is
      our public want their company and they are proud of having
      them around and willingly let them be exploited.The moment
      you put on the uniform,abuse of authority starts.Bottom to
      the top or top to bottom.The entire public admin is corrupt
      including the belief in God.If you want to form a govt,you
      should do so without touching this culture.Recently I heard
      the story of a strict honest Grama Sevaka chased away by the
      public petition of the villagers and got a new one corrupt
      to the core.They bribe him and get what they want and life
      goes ever happy!We have a public rotten to the core.So they
      choose a govt that suits them.

        I ask myself how these guys get on with highly educated people ? It is said this man not to have got through HSC.. just a college drop out. His complex may have been the reason him to react in that way for such a long time.

        Did you hear that only noe even 20 ships harboured at Hambanthota harbour in the year 2012 ?
        And the interest of the loans that the state has to be pay yearly is much higher than the income of H harbour.
        This is the same with Mattala Airport, it is just they dont know how to promote tourism, but in the end they will manipulate the statistics resounding that over 1mio arrivals were reported to 2013….
        Most of all that bugger – former law professor to stick with the bunch is not understadable to anyone. Normally, birds of a feather flock together, none of them in the MR bunch are proved to be intelligent seniors. …they can all be kept quiet giving them bultos each.. can any one tell me any good minister who has perfomred by his own… NOT A SINGLE ONE::: they all are just like so called ministers.. remote controlled by mahaeka… the worst south asian leader that the region has ever produced.

      “When a man is down he deserves sympathy.” Depends on how he went up in the first place.Was it over dead bodies?Was it piggy back riding on others?Did he keep his feet on the ground when he was up or was he drunk with power and floating above without wings? I think in this case a message was sent to those who thought that if they hang on to the de facto presidents coattails they are safe and can become like him and do anything they want and be untouchable.Tsk.tsk.tsk.What they did not understand is to become like that and be protected forever you have to be family,and if you are not a rajapakshe,then you are not family and will not be treated as such.For example you can’t just come and eat at the table when the family is eating just because you are a lap dog.You should know your place and sit under the table and wait for the scraps.

      But this man is a special person. His role as a spokeman I am sure, many hated him explaing bla bla.. though the facts are miles diffent to what presented. Alone the fact at the time, SF´s arrest few years ago, how this man behaved was unbelievable. I hate only for that reason… the manner they lied on the national tv.. i dont wish others to get hurt, but this kind of multi criminals deserve to end up to the very same manner Sadam husseine ´s fate worked. Ditta damma wedaneeya will take care of him .. for sure. There are lot more inlcuding MOST CORRUPTED MR and the clan… days ahead of us will be not nice to THem but to us.

    When God wishes to destroy man he makes them go mad first! in the case of this egotist,self assuming pundit and a greedy pig who tried to stride like a Goliath among Davids’ has met his match with his creator, thus opening up a visionary warning to other C..k su..ers.. who are licking the feet and b…s of the self imposed leaders of might. it is evident in sports when one entity is being sent on a scoring spree to victory and all the other falling by the side lines or being blown for infringements,better not discussed.
    Apparently, whether his alleged attempt at suicide is accidental or stage to create sympathy from his family or public is yet to be ascertained, he has committed another criminal offense in an attempting suicide.. so, the ever merciful God has let him have another go at repentance!
    Maybe can use this and be the lanka ‘wikileak(!)hulugalla’ and blow the whistle on all know corruption! the media are good listeners and the public are the best sympathisers.. He time is short..so he better hurry. if of late…What good is it to flog a dead horse..!

    The moral of the drama – those who are heady with an
    overdose of power are forced to attempt suicide with
    an overdose of tablets.

    What you give unto others, you harvest at the end. Yet,
    those in power do not seem to realise how pissed off
    the public are about these antics.

    Even in the Central African Republic where Emperor
    Bokassa was in power, such things did not happend. None
    of his cohorts rob bed spreads and cameras.

    Now when a Sri Lankan politico travels abroad, they might
    tie a security cord to bed covers so they cannot be taken
    away. They will offer cheap or paper towels. Shame!!! Shame!!11

    What are you talking Ranga Perera? Wait and see. Nothing
    will happen to Lakshman Hulugalle. He will continue with
    all his other posts and make money. What happened to
    Nalaka Godahewa after Rs 140 milllion on the KRRISH deal?
    He is still serving. Hulu had gone to screw women and screwed
    himself. But he will remain and continue to screw the country.
    No one in the UPFA leadership will stop that. That is for sure!!

    Here is the finale to the Hulugalle suicide bid
    episode. He fought with the Lanka Hospital staff
    protesting against a bill of over Rs 200,000. He
    thought it would be waived. No one came forward
    and the man was forced to cough out the money.

      The best way to commit suicide is just get into one of the private hospitals and just wait for the bill and have a heart attack and die.I know of those who died like this.RS.200000 is peanuts.They should have charged him 1,200,000.Then he would have died.Usually the bill comes in millions,that is why i’am surprised at this 200000.They must have been scared of him knowing his nature.

    Why he is a Tamil”?(Fukushisma). Not because of the suicide attempt. But because one of their great-great grandmothers was a south Indian lady who lived below a tank in Hulugalla (Sulugala)bordering ancient Nuwarakalaviya and Sath Korale. Hullas do not deny that.A Vanniya connection, they might say. Others who think Hullas are Pattayas must open their eyes. There is a skeleton in every cupboard!

    The motto of the Government appears to be “don’t do
    anything if he is our man.” So Hulu gets away despite
    all the villany. So does the head of the Presidential
    Sinhala Media unit Vijayananda Herath.If he or she is
    a Government person, they get away with impunity. Nothing
    happens to them. What is the opposition doing about it?
