Gnanasara Sentenced To 19 Years Of Rigorous Imprisonment

General Secretary of the Bodu Bala Sena (BBS) Galagoda Atte Gnanasara was sentenced to 19 years of rigorous imprisonment by the Appeals Court on four Contempt of Court charges over an incident that took place on January 25, 2016. The sentences will run concurrently and will be completed in 6 years.

Gnanasara

President of Court of Appeal, Justice Preethi Padman Surasena and Justice Shiran Gunaratne announced the sentence this morning (August 8).

The defendant was not present in court at the time and defense counsel informed court that his client had been admitted to the Sri Jayewardenapura Hospital.

The determination was on a case filed by the Attorney General against Gnanasara following a petition submitted to the Appeals Court by the Former Homagama Magistrate and current Colombo Chief Magistrate Ranga Dissanayake.

Earlier Gnanasara was sentenced to 6 months of rigorous imprisonment on June 14 for threatening Sandya Ekneligoda, the wife of missing journalist Prageeth Eknaligoda within the Homagama court premises.

Former Homagama Magistrate and present Colombo Chief Magistrate Ranga Dissanayake, Deputy Solicitor General Dileep Peiris and prison officers filed statements against Gnanasara Thero.

According to spokespersons of the BBS, the determination has already been challenged in court.

      I would have been happier if MR or anyone in that family or that Buruwanse would hav been jailed.
      Anyways, the move of getting the bunch of thugs that ruined this nation is very slow.
      This man in robes have done all harms to this nation, though it is pronounced different by various people.
      However, those who felt that truths should work should have felt .. this man would one day be arrested for all broad day light crimes.
      But all these could work different for him, as bugger would be set free next week.
      It is also believe, that he has been suffering from an illness. May be well be AIDs or anything like that .. how many boys should have been victimized by the abuse of the man is beyond all records.

        I wonder if this pseudo monk would be visited by Rajakashe next week.

        If not Medamulana, Rajakshes second most liklable places are seen as Abhayarama or the like temple premises. It is all becuse they know very well people look at the place with much of the respect. If even high criminals would worship the kind of place, then it can work to hood wink the nation.

        Rajakashe focuses where it is necessary in order to seek the media attraction. There he would not care about the disrepct he would be blessed with. Main thing for him is to just add something against the crurent govt.

          “Megapolis and Western Development Minister Champika Ranawaka said today that President Maithripala Sirisena’s attention would likely to be focused on a presidential pardon for Ven. Galagoda Attte Gnanasara Thera who was sentenced to six years.”

          At least now people will understand who really screwed the Yahapalana govt. Rev. Sobitha Thera made the worst mistake by picking the wrong person.

      JD, Jim Dimwit,

      “Was there any religious bias fro the side of the bench ?”

      Just t he Law of the Land being applied to a citizen, who claimed to be “Buddhist” Monk, and wanted the Monk exemption from the Law for crimes committed.

      Is the so-called Ganasara a “Buddhist” monk or a Mara Monk? The data supports that he is a Mara Monk, and not certainly not a Buddhist Monk , as per Dhamma of Buddha.

      Unfortunately, many the low mean IQ 79, Para-Sinhala “Buddhists” still seem to have trouble soring this simple fact.

    It is a proof our Law and Order – Petty crimes are punishable while for serious ones the perpetrators go only up to the inquiry. Take the same monk for instance.

    How many politicians went into jail for Public Vehicles misuse during the elections and returned within days, while the same politicians were not charged on the serious crimes?

      Isharath, The kind of Judiciary we have in Sri Lanka is a dual purpose one. One that protects the Law & Order and the other one Protects the Law Breakers on the Order of the Elites. Gnanasara is not a dumb fool to just go about playing monkey tricks with the population, WITHOUT A GAIN. He is an actor, a thug, a terrorist who knows how to handle the JOBS entrusted to him to be executed in the USUAL GOVIGAMA MAFIA manipulation politics which is being carried out throughout a span of 100 years. Without an assurance from the government or from its leadership of legal/personal protection he would not have even take up the contract to burn towns and cities like what he did in Aluthgama, Teldeniya, Digana and elsewhere…………….. Since, the project is to test the mood of the Sinhala and mind control them to look at the Muslims as the next enemies, the MAFIA team can divert the anger and distract the attention of the disgruntled people away from the GOVIGAMA MAFIA Establishment. But, they have discovered that the SINHALA population is thinking somewhat rationally in identifying the real problem and the REAL ENEMIES who are really destroying the country, its resources and its economy. And this discovery is going to threaten their (GOVI MAFIA’s) survival.

Original start up happened during DS Senanayake’s time. Even Banda was a UNP one time before he founded SLFP (SINHALA LUNATICS FASCIST PARTY)

          The Mafia began its operation at many stages in many levels depending on its leadership and its various methodology in committing human sacrifice offered to the Lucifer (The god of the Govigama Mafia Ruling Elites) with multiple conflicts they manufactured between the Sinhala and other races.

    Somewhat sad story, though misguided he’s a true patriot.

    He is a monk of logically proven religion but his failure to adhere to his philosophy when communicating his massage prompted this punishment.

      ” ….. though misguided he’s a true patriot” I think not. He is a thug who has disgraced Buddhism & should be disrobed. It is time jail bird monks are banished from monk hood. I understand the paedophile monk from a London temple who was jailed & deported in the recent past after serving time ‘at her majesty’s pleasure’ is still practising as a monk in Gampaha. People in SL maybe in denial over the allegations & conduct of these yob monks but foreigners who have embraced Buddhism after understanding the true religion are horrified at the conduct of these self acclaimed protectors of the religion.

      No matter the hidden men are criminals, we are used to say sadu sadu … that has been instrumental them todo whatever they think is right but not being caught by the law and order.

    Venerable Gnanassara was given Leadership Training in the West, through a crash arranged by the Noregian Solheim in Oslo.
    Venerable Gnnassara went to Aluthgama, And made Dr Rajitha a Hero and the saviour of the Moors.

    Hey, c’mon guys, Sinhalese, let’s demand the law be implemented against Wigneswaran and Vijayakala TOO. Why only Buddhist priests? Are racist, separatist, Tamil terrorist sympathizers above the law?
    Gnanasara Thero’s case happened two years ago and the charges of contempt of court is for interfering in somebody else’s case and for demanding not to grant bail. The punishment is 19 years RI. Never mind.
    How about Wigneswaran who conspired against the State?
    How about his case for resurrecting LTTE and lighting lamps for remembering terrorist leader Prabhakaran?
    Will any other country in the world allow anybody to do this in their soil?
    Will India allow this?
    Will US allow this?
    Then Viajayakala. She should NOT be allowed to enter the Parliament.
    She violated the Constitution. She openly called for resurrection of a proscribed terrorist organization and she admitted that she violated the Constitution. Upto date there is no case against her.
    She even attended the Parliamentary sittings day before yesterday.
    Can any other MP in the world be allowed to come to Parliament after this type of serious violations of the law in the country?
    Minister Ranjan, CM, Wigneswaran and MP, Vijayakala have more serious charges of contempt of court than Gnanasara Thero.
    ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. We should demand slave government to STOP IMPLEMENTING THE LAW SELECTIVELY.
    Let’s demand Maithree and Ranil to step down and hand over the country to Mahinda.
    C’mon guys let’s be united under one flag. Forget about all differences. This government has imprisoned over 60 Buddhist priests on various bogus charges. Some were imprisoned for keeping an elephant in the temple premises. They were targeted for political reasons.
    Next the slave government will target JO opposition leaders.
    Before that, let’s be organized in the name of our motherland!!!
    Let’s fight for democracy, freedom and justice!!!

          I don’t criticize the verdict of Venerable Gnanasara Thero. What I am asking is, why only the Buddhist priest? Why not others? Let’s see the list according to the seriousness.
          1. Former SC-Judge Wigneswaran, Chief Minister/North for violating the Constitution by openly advocating separatism and lighting lamps in 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 in Mullivaikkal in remembrance of the world’s most ruthless terrorist leader Prabhakaran+his cadre.
          2. Then PC MP Sivajilingam for openly advocating resurrection of LTTE and lighting lamps in 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 in remembrance of the world’s most ruthless terrorist leader Prabhakaran.
          3. Then the NPC Education Minister Sarveswaran for refusing to hoist the national flag at a function in Vavuniya in 2017 and ordering all Northern school principals to half-mast the provincial flag, observe a moment of silence and light lamps in Mullivaikkal in remembrance of dead terrorists on May 18, 2018.
          4. Then government MP Vijayakala Maheswaran for refusing to hoist the national flag in 2015 and openly avowing to resurrect LTTE, who later tried to justify it as an attempt to obtain votes for UNP which made the statement more serious.
          5. Then Doctor Anuruddha Padeniya.
          6. Then Minister Ranjan Ramanayake.
          7. Then Lawyer Suganthika Fernando.
          I believe they all should receive 19-year-RI, shouldn’t they, Mr. PM????
          If not, why?
          Is it because some SELECTIVE people, a Tamil Chief Minister, a Tamil provincial council MP, a Tamil Provincial Minister, a Tamil government MP, a doctor, a Minister, a lawyer are above the law?
          If an uneducated-poor man sneezes during court proceedings, he is given an instant jail term. But some prominent people who have serious charges of contempt of court and violation of the Constitution are exonerated.
          Is this Good Governance (Yahapalanaya), Mr. Prime Minister??????

Also deals are being made to get his support at the forthcoming Presidential Elections. In return for his support, Mahinda faction is promising ambassadorship to Myanmar, while Gota is dangling a cabinet position – the minister of Buddha Sasana.

        I am no particular fan of Ranil W. Neither have I anything against him. But this gentleman from an originally Christian, highly respected family – some of whom now following the Buddhist faith – can chose where and whom he prays for, including a much-venerated Hindu Temple in India. Religion is a private matter – commercialised and devalued in this country in the last many decades. When ex-British PM Tony Blair converted to Catholicism recently, the decent and liberal British public did not lose sleep over this. The British were far tolerant to make this an issue – social or political.

        Years ago when I visited the Blue Mosque in Istanbul years ago, I fulfilled my wish to offer prayers in and from a major Muslim mosque. I was pleased to learn a few years Muslims in Toronto – invited and opened their Mosque to those of other faiths on a particular day. Yes! this was at a time when there was much anti-Islam feeling in Canada. I suspect the walls of pettiness in all major religions will, sooner than later, collapse giving way to the freedom of religion and thought.

    Picked up from Reuters News.
    A Sri Lankan court on Wednesday handed a six-year jail term to a Buddhist monk accused of inciting violence against Muslims, holding him guilty of contempt just months after he was convicted of intimidating the wife of a missing journalist.

    The monk, Galagoda Aththe Gnanasara, leads the hardline Bodu Bala Sena (BBS) or “Buddhist Power Force”, which government ministers and Muslims have accused of stirring up violence against Muslims and Christians, allegations he has denied.

    The court sentenced him to six years’ rigorous imprisonment over a 2016 incident when Gnanasara interrupted a court hearing on the abduction of the journalist, Prageeth Eknaligoda, in which military intelligence officials were accused.

    He shouted at the judge Pakaya, Ponnaya and lawyers because the military officials had not been given bail, and threatened Eknaligoda’s wife.

    “The convict intentionally committed the offence to undermine the judiciary,” Preethi Padman Surasena, the president of the court of appeal, said in delivering Wednesday’s judgment, adding, “Found guilty of all charges beyond reasonable doubt.”

    The monk was convicted on four counts of contempt of court, receiving terms of four years each on the first and the second counts, six years on the third and five for the fourth, all to run concurrently.

    Why petty should it be ?

    I think they consider is as one of the high crimes. Paragraghs say, if untruths would have been painted on Courts and the handlings could be a serious crime.
    Sure we want multi murderers of Gotler nature to be sent to jail earlier … however, ther eare some guys seen in lanken authorities, that have the relatiosnhip with former men.
    Like for exmaple, Ranajn and his cases put few weeks off until all the evidence are on the table.
    But ballige puth s brother Gota and his high crimes including multiple killings in Welikada stay unturn or alwys subjected to longer postponements.
    Why is that ?
    Rajitha Senararane once confirmed to a press conference that, there si something hidden in Neethipathi dept that is very likely taking the side of Gotabay anot allowing his arrest.
    Gota is a multiple crime handler directly or through hi smen. Rathupasswala and Welikada prison murders are public secrets. Neverthless media protects him. not even taking him to forum so that he can SPEAK loudly as he could with PANEL of experts in the discussion round.
    None of these men are the invitees to very same PRIVATE media yet today. If Namal baby would be sitting in Press conf, it is only limited to Derana and Hiru. Both senders are black money holders and drug traffickers respectively.

    In reality, how many priests, including non-Buddhist have been sentenced for various offences? Some are even for child abuse cases. So, why must this so called priest and his sentences be given so much of web or print space? Is it really worth it? We all know some hefty sentence was due and it was handed down. No one, and not even those found guilty, in subsequent media talks ever deny incidents that caused the law to take its course. In my view, hooligans of this kind should not be lifted upon a pedestal by giving them a lot of publicity. My guess is that he is now seeking publicity and will now say “See! These guys won’t even let a hospitalized patient alone after an operation”. Now, I understand that a person admitted to the prison is examined whether he is fit to serve his sentence. If not, he is not admitted and papers are sent for a presidential pardon. Well! If that happens that is something to talk of and for us as citizens to ponder whether there was an abuse of the system.

    JO the Jokers of the Opposition are wasting Parliament time and state wealth with their ludicrous Petitions of numerous Jokes.
    The Parliament too is wasting time on these Jokers Petitions.
    Why Oh why?.
    How many Petitions which had been brought on by these time wasters had been thrown out after consultations.
    PARLIAMENT SHOULD VERIFY Whether THESE LUDICROUS PETITIONS ARE CONSTITUTIONALLY Debatable BEFORE JUMPING INTO WASTING TIME IN THE PARLIAMENT IN DISCUSSING THE PETITIONS.
    During the last three years these JOKERS OF THE OPPOSITION had failed for the umpteenth time and lost their cases.
    Either they are undebatable or constitutionally cannot be changed.
    The speaker Karu J should go to school to learn how a Petition be debated or be Rejected .
    These are time wasting methods of these Jokers.
    Please STOP THIS NONSENCE.
    One example is Rejecting the Present Opposition leader and requests appointing a JO member.
    Now we know the outcome of it.
    Speaker Karu Jayasuriya too is Dancing to their whims and shouts.
    How silly a Speaker can get to !!!!!!??? ! Stupidity of our PARLIMENTARIANS??????

    It’s our state money they’re wasting.
