Frantic Nandasena Demands SJB’s ‘Confidential Easter Attacks Report’ Handed Over To Catholic clergy

The CID has made a “polite request” from the Executive Director of the Center for Society and Religion (CSR) in Maradana, Colombo for the confidential report handed over to Catholic clergy by the main opposition delegation that met them earlier this week.

SJB MPs met with a group of Catholic clergy on Monday (26) to hand over a confidential report on the April 21, 2019 bombings to catholic priests and brief them on the contents. The Catholic clergy were also provided with transcripts of recent revelations made in parliament by SJB MPs Manusha Nanayakkara and Harin Fernando. Nanayakkara said they had urged the Board of the Archbishop to grant them a meeting so the matters could be explained in greater detail.

JB MPs Lakshman Kirirella, Patali Champika Ranawaka, Dr. Harsha De Silva, Eran Wickremeratne, and Nalin Bandara attended the meeting.

“If there is valuable evidence and salient points in the report with regard to the perpetrators of the attacks, the information is required for investigations. Therefore, a humble request was made for the report,” the Police Spokesman told the media, referring to the CID’s “request” from the CSR Executive Director.

Opposition Activists are warning that the move would create a serious fear psychosis about meeting with members of the opposition if the meetings were to result in summons and questions from the CID.

“All this is a part of the crackdown on the opposition that the President has now begun in earnest,” said a SJB MP commenting on the development. “It will make people fearful about meeting with us, because no one wants to get on the wrong side of the CID and have them visit their organisations and start launching fake investigations,” the SJB MP said.

“The right way to go about it would be to ask the SJB to hand over the report,” the MP said, rather than harass ordinary citizens.

An increasingly insecure President Nandasena Gotabaya Rajapaksa is besieged by speculation that he and the intelligence services that remained loyal to him after the fall of his brother’s regime in 2015 might have had a role in the Easter Sunday bombings that killed 269 people.

His regime has resorted to cracking down on all those who dare to expose damning details of an alleged connection between the Easter bombers and the Sri Lankan intelligence services.

After his explosive revelations in Parliament indicating that the Sonic-Sonic’ code name used in communications between the bombers alluded to Gotabaya Rajapaksa’s State Intelligence Services Chief Maj. Gen. Suresh Sallay, the CID broke protocol and issued summons on SJB MP Harin Fernando.

Statements made in Parliament cannot be investigated by law enforcement and action cannot be taken against members of parliament for speeches made on the floor of the House under the provisions of the Parliament Powers and Privileges Act.

n a strange twist, the SIS Chief Sallay, the first military officer to ever be appointed SIS director, paid a call on the Attorney General after Dappula De Livera received the extended volumes of the Easter Sunday that President Nandasena Rajapaksa previously withheld due to “national security reasons”.

It is unclear if these volumes, that were not tabled in Parliament, contain the damning testimony Fernando alluded to in his parliament speech, from CID officers and others about the persistent presence of military intelligence personnel in the narratives surrounding the Easter Sunday bombers.

The former IGP Pujith Jayasundera told the Commission that the sole-surviving bomber, who failed to detonate the Taj Samudra bomb, was contacted by a military intelligence officer shortly before he went back to the Tropical Inn in Dehiwala and blew himself up.

Sources told Colombo Telegraph that the Taj Samudra (failed) bomber might have had MI handlers who were determined to find out his location after he failed to carry out his mission. Revelations have been made in Parliament and elsewhere by opposition MPs that the Dehiwala bomber’s wife received a visit at her home from military intelligence officers by 10AM on April 21, 2019 just over an hour after the blasts around the capital.

Fernando revealed in Parliament that a CID officer had given testimony before the Easter Sunday Commission that an intelligence officer had been arrested by the CID after it was found he had communicated with one of the bombers. Before the CID subjected the intelligence officer to interrogation, the Directorate of Military Intelligence sent officials to the CID to whisk the arrested intelligence operative away, claiming he was “one of their projects”.

A connection to the Easter Sunday bomber cell has also been made from certain ISIS-linked operatives in Malaysia, that opposition MPs have hinted might have been in touch with a certain Sri Lankan operating out of Kuala Lumpur. [See video of JVP Leader Anura Kumara Dissanayake’s speech in Parliament on March 26, 2021: https://fb.watch/59o-XWVsPH/

Maj. Gen. Sallay was Defence Attache at the Sri Lankan High Commission in Malaysia in April 2019. He returned to Sri Lanka to take up the position as SIS Chief after President Gotabaya Rajapaksa was elected president in November 2019.

      Gobbasena does not seem to know what “confidential” means.

      Sensitive readers over to you, we should stand against FAKE media telecasts being continued by HIru and Ada Derana TV channels. If not today, when would it be ?
      That people’s activist “ASELA SAMPATH” was proved to have been beaten by POLICE while him being kept in remand. We need to pass this to international courts. We should work NANDASENA to be beaten by the PEOPLE sooner than later. This we can if we transport the message to the average.

        LLM: “This we can if we transport the message to the average”. That “Average” got the message when that road (Sir Marcus Fernando Road) was “Blocked” for the “VIP” movement. This “Message” has gone to the “Chinese Embassy”. Now “GOTA’s” “Gobbels” are on the search for the “Average” on that “Protest”. The next “MOVE” is to increase the COVID 19 victims and “Block and Lock-Down” any “Up-Rising”. The PHIs have been “Instructed” to limit the “PCR” tests claim their Trade Union. Even a “Pandemic” situation is used and abused to suppress the Average”. This “Average” is yet a “Drop” from the “6.9 million” slaves. I have my “Kadamandiya” dialogue on a daily basis. Will keep you informed.

        ^ This fool think he’s smart. What a pity. If there anything this retarded opposition ever did was exposing our great intelligence officers and jailing them under their london/New York yamapalana regime. And then this dumb opposition wonder how the easter attack happened! And they have the audacity to speak on the matter. The opposition can stick their report up their collective asses. They should do us a favour and go jump off a cliff.

        “I am all for Port City”

        Me too! …….. I’m with SJ from Communist Party Peking wing.

        Have you driven/walked through any Chinese city: Beijing, Shanghai, Xi’an ……… ? If you haven’t, then you don’t know how they are run.

        More than the total population of SL – 24 million – live in Shanghai alone ……. and it’s run like clockwork. One of the cleanest cities in the world.

        There is nothing wrong in dictators, Dr Janapriya.

        But Lankans are incompetent in any form ………. even in the form of dictators.

        The fault, dear Dr Janapriya, is not in our stars, But in ourselves, that we are Lankans.

        Gota may be a Malay Muslim but he is Lanka-trained. Fully Lanka-trained.

        We need the Chinese to show us how to run Colombo.

        Well, occasionally they might put Native Wedda through some water-torture …….. but that’s a price well worth paying.

      Publishing the report would be a foolish move The police state will be allover them as is Harin said DC he cannot even go to church without been followed.

      What are these guys detectives or coolies of powers to be?
      For two years what have they done?
      .“If there is valuable evidence and salient points in the report with regard to the perpetrators of the attacks, the information is required for investigations.”
      By asking for this report your acknowledging after spending two years and trucks load of funds you’re nowhere close to solving anything.
      You don’t need the report, use your common sense. Who had the most to gain ? Now this is two years after the fact… Now this is two years after the fact , who did gain the most ?

          Buddhist1: AKD gave a “Clue” to locate the “maha mola karu” in Parliament. He asked to find out “Who,” asked ISIS to “Accept” responsibility, and when they wanted a “Communication” to accept “WHO”, transmitted that “Message”. AKD did not stop at that, he gave a “Clue” to find that out “Message”. That is the “Route” to “TRUTH”, but the Government is all out to provide an “Alternative Truth”. The people must understand that there is only “TRUTH” but no “ALTERNATIVE TRUTH”.

            what should be that boss, ” boss is not happy about it being delayed”: It meaning ” premeditated BOMBMING on easter sunday.
            :
            Harin and Manusha REVEALED it as no others. Now who is the boss ?
            .
            Is that GOTABAYA or his condom support aka AVANGARDE fraudster/ NISSANKA SENADHIPATHI ?

            AKD s speech became food for thought to all regardless of being JVP supporters or non-supporters. but how many among those 6.9 millions of voters would grasp the little about the danger before us ?

    Lester and Eagle-Eye are on leave, in their absence, I’m assigned to sing the praises of our great all conquering superhero Gota’s abilities in the field of Science.

    Without any training, I’m venturing into Science/Humanities ……Lately, I’ve started doing these little thought-experiments ……….. about The Lankan Condition ……….. Once I’m done, it’ll be put out as The Special Theory of Sinhala-Buddhism.

    Good ol’ Al Einstein used to do this little thought-experiments …….. Once he was standing on a railway-bridge observing a train speeding underneath. Ramona was sitting in a carriage and Native Wedda was standing on the embankment outside. A light came on in the ceiling of the carriage. Ramona, sitting in the carriage, saw it as a straight beam of light going from the ceiling to the floor. Native Wedda, standing outside and looking at the speeding train, saw it as a beam of light going at an angle.

    Although they both observed the same event, they saw two different thangs!

    So, the arguments go on till the cows come home ……… with all the insults and taunts thrown in ……………. little realizing that, they were in two different frames of reference!

      Continued

      That little observation, led to one of the most profound insights of mankind ……… that time (and space) is not constant …… it expands and contracts ….. depends on the speed of the observer ……….

      If a man is shot into a far off corner of the universe ………. near speed of light …….. when he returns he can be younger than the earthlings he left behind …….

      This is what happened ……. this time around, our great all-conquering Superhero Gota, …….. changed his tack/MO ……. instead of his customary white-van, he put Native Wedda in one of his Rocket-man nephew (whatever his name is) Mahinda’s son’s rockets and shot him into outer space ……. near speed of light (There is a rumour spread by Soma, Lester, Eagle-Eye, et al. …….. – which I don’t believe – that the Rajapakses are so talented and capable, they have found a way to exceed the speed of light. ……. 6.9 million believe it: 15 million are still thinking if it’s true.)

        Now, Native Wedda has returned younger than ever ……… young enough to call his own granddaughter, Ramona, Grandma. Such is the power of Science at the hands of the Rajapakses.

        You Buddhists out-there pray to Buddha, Christians to Christ, Hindus to Vishnu, Muslims to Allah, non-believers to Marx ………. that they all bless good ol’ nimal fernando with the wisdom to rise above IQ-79 …….. to stitch his theory together.

          The theory is a little more complicated. Eagle , Lester et al live in a different universe, with different rules. They haven’t seen Ramona’s light yet. And Native can’t see the train because the track hasn’t been built, due to the Rajapaksas not getting their 10% .

          Brilliant.
          You know Nimal I am not educated like you, in fact you can call me a pleb.
          Hence I cannot relate myself to your quantum physics, string theory, theory of everything, theory of relativity, …. and so on. Please bear with me for being an ignorant pleb.

          However I only know a Jain story about an Elephant and 6 Blind men which I heard when I was a kid. Hope your grandma also told you this story.

          Recently my elders have started discussing about “The block universe theory: The past, present and future exist simultaneously” of which I haven’t got a clue.
          Did you mean The block universe theory articulated by Prof Bradford Skow who “suggests that if we were to “look down” on the universe as if we were looking on a piece of paper, we would see time spread out in all directions, exactly the same way we see space at a given moment. Are we only experiencing time as intrinsically linear because it’s what our human brains are capable of comprehending?”

          I am sorry I haven’t got any idea of anything that I have mentioned above.

          “Rocket-man nephew”

            Geeze Native,

            I hope you know that I’m just teasing you ……. hope you are not taking any of this seriously.

            I have a lot of admiration for you ……. always fighting for the truth …….. and for the disadvantaged, irrespective of who they are …….. and that’s rare for a Lankan. Keep it up: the country needs people like you!

            But without some humour and a little teasing, it would be so bleak in the forum …….. especially at a time like now when the country is facing such a dire situation.


            “Jain story about an Elephant” ……. the ancients were very wise: they understood the limits of our knowledge …….. it comes out in many allegories …….. Plato’s Cave etc ……..

            “The block universe theory” …….. never heard of it ……….. reading up on it now.

              “you can call me a pleb.” …….. I’m a pleb too; proudly so! …… But I read up on things for myself …… without waiting for politicians/church/schools/whoever to define the world for me. That way, I feel, we both have much in common.

              “educated like you” ……… I don’t know what you mean by “education” ……. I find traditional/conventional “education” useless and limiting; look around they produce pre-programmed robots with one-track minds.

              Except for a minute percentage, people are not born stupid ……….. To give Norm Chomsky’s phrase a different twist ……. people go around “Manufacturing Stupidity” ………. self-manufacturing stupidity on a daily basis. Just observe, even the highly educated/qualified people even in this very forum.

              I believe education, religion and culture is nothing but a gang-rape of our minds from infancy which smothers independent-thinking and prevents us from thinking for ourselves and seeing the simple truths.

          Time travel is possible in physics. However, even if you re-visit the Earth 50K years from now, there will be no Eelam. Secondly, according to Einstein, mass is converted into energy when it approaches the speed of light. Some kallathonis figured out this can occur much quicker using C4 strapped to strategic areas.

    It is becoming very clear every day that Nandasena and his loyal intelligence services were behind the Easter attack. The role of Srisena also very suspicious.
    I wonder when the countries like US and other foreign governments will want to try the murderer Nandasena for killing their citizens.
    He should tried two mass murders now.
    It is shame on 6.9 million voters who voted him and his cronies to office and parliament.
    Atleast the MP s could salvage their names by impeaching the murderer who came to power by killing both locals and foreigners

    Thanks, AKD, your speech is clearly one of the most important ever heard in our Parliament, or indeed in our country.

    This is a “must listen to all of us.” It is firmly on the Internet, I hope.

    The anxiety I have is that I can hear it only if a Sri L:ankan service provider allows it. I’m wondering how this can be saved on to the HDD of a few hundred citizens so that even if the State were to sabotage its availability, it will still be available with many of us.

    I appears Rajapaksas have exceeded the speed of lies or so sorry light. 1)Usually CID finds the clues and let public know about it but in Lanka CID is humbly requesting clergy to provide them clues which were provided by opposition. 2) according to Rajapaksas , Victims in Lanka have more chance of getting justice through commission than from judiciary.

    Why cannot Sri Lankan people ask for an independent law and order and security system and an impartial independent judicial system for this country? Currently, the political parties that govern the country take control over these institutions and the systems changed every time with the changes in the governments (political party). Unfortunately, only two major political party’s govern this country alternatively and the system also changed to the needs of the political leaders. That is why both parties corrupt this nation alternatively without any punishment. They compete each other who gets more money and who murders more people. The only thing we do is changing the corruptors and murders alternatively. I don’t understand why the people are not bothered about rule of law and justice which affect almost 95% of the population.

      We have no viable candidates to speak of. Good people who are qualified and honest do not want to have anything to do with our politics. We have seen opponents jailed, threatened, and even killed, so why should they want to put themselves and their families in danger? You are right, we have seen one corrupt lot after another, but right now we are seeing the worst. The present lot are capable of ruthless crimes, corruption in larger proportions because of nepotism, and an incompetence that is costing lives during the pandemic. Voters were foolish enough to think only this man can save us from the terrorists who worked to his advantage. The worst thing to accept is that the Rajapaksas have sold us to a ruthless country like China. To think the Rajapaksa supporters were outraged that Ranil was a pawn of America, and that they wanted a base here…..it seems the Rajapaksas have presented Sri Lanka on a golden platter to a worse country, China. This is only the beginning.

    Here is what the SJB really should do. Take this report and forward it to pope Francis in the Vatican. They need to document the duplicity of his Cardinal in Sri Lanka and humbly request that for starters the cardinal should be forced to retire and sent to some institution to mind his own business. It has to be pointed out to the Pope that thru is minion’s treachery of making all sorts of confusing and contradictory statements his flock in Sri lanka has been severely led astray. It must be stated that as a result of these politically charged moves his minion, the Sri Lankan Cardinal succeeded in delivering the entire catholic belt vote to the murderer guilty of blowing up two Catholic churches one Easter Sunday. This is an unacceptable situation that his Holiness needs to rectify.

    On another note I remember that one Sajith Premadasa during the 2015 election campeighn stated that no Rajapkshe appointed accolytes would be asked to resign or be sacked from the government service. All Rajapakshe apointments were unqualified. Not sacking anyone resulted in terrible incompetence within the government sector. It lead to paralysis when it came to executing the then governments plans. Some of the delays were deliberate sabotage by Rajapakshe stooges acting on their own to prevent the then government from getting on with their policies. There were also vicious attacks on then government ministers by these moles leaking information to the kept media. Sallay and the intelligence units should have been sacked lock stock and barrel. If they were sacked this bombing would not have happened.

Many Thamizh Catholic were deliberately killed in May 2009 and this Cardinal did not utter a word of protest.
