Gota Goes To Court Of Appeal, Pleads Allegations Are Baseless

The Court of Appeal reserved its order on the matter of whether or not to issue notices on respondents and whether or not to grant relief to Gotabaya Rajapaksa with respect to a Writ Petition submitted by him last Friday (November 24) for tomorrow (Wednesday, November 29).

Former secretary to the MOD – Gotabaya

Rajapaksa, the former Secretary, Ministry of Defence and Urban Development, in this matter petitioned the Court of Appeal today to prevent the IGP Pujith Jayasundara, CID Director Shani Abeysekera, Financial Crimes Investigation Division DIG Ravi Waidyalankara, ASP Kamal Paliskara and the Attorney General from proceeding and/or relying upon the Certificate filed under the offenses against the Public Property Act.

Rajapaksa, in his petition, has claimed that several false allegations have been made and several false purported charges levied against him. Among the charges is that he was unlawfully responsible for a floating armoury which was found to have been docked at the Galle harbor with large consignment of weapons and ammunitions, allegations of corruption and irregularity in the purchase of MiG 27 in the year 2006, and the purported share manipulation at Lanka Hospitals Ltd and Leasing of Aircrafts at the time of tenure of the office of chairman at Mihin Lanka.

He claims these allegations were baseless.

Romesh de Silva PC with Ali Sabri PC and Sugath Caldera and Ruwantha Cooray instructed by Sanath Wijewardane appeared for the Petitioner.

Meanwhile on Sunday, President Maithripala Sirisena, in assurances given to civil society representatives, has clearly implied that the prosecution of certain individuals suspected of wrongdoing was in the hands of the political leadership, namely himself and Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe and not necessarily a matter for law enforcement and prosecuting authorities.

Gamini Viyangoda, one of the civil society representatives who had met with Sirisena to discuss moves to unify the SLFP and the possible repercussions for the Unity Government, said the President had assured the group that the arrest of Gotabaya Rajapaksa, brother of former president Mahinda Rajapaksa and the former Secretary, Ministry of Defence and Urban Development ‘had been delayed pending the return of Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe.’

      Gotabaya Rajapaksa,

      If allegations are baseless, where is the money? Where are the bodies? Why are they not living?

      Can you bring Lasantha Wickramatinga back?
      Can you bring Ekliyagoda back?
      Can you bring Thagudeen back?
      Can you bring the others killed back?

            Prasanna, media mafia is leading in the country as no other worlds.

            Just see any good moves have been reported by them ? They would not…. I dont think that current men are the best, but they the media should support them when goods moves are the case.
            Just to criticise them on and on, as we had a better govt prior to 2015 should NOT have done right ?

            I think ours have been made to believe anything that would be in the air.

            Alone the facts related issues are no value to the masses regardless of their educational levels.

            Hiru Dherana or othe like senders are abusing the mindsets of the average.

            I dont think free media can help lanken culture for the good.

            All media prostitutes should be jailed for manipulating their news items.

            THat can then teach them a lession.

                i really dont know about your knowledge.

                But if you would talk to a cross section of the society, you will see what facts they have been aware about the situation.

                That means, Derana or other drug dealing senders should have manipulated the average mind set or not ?

                Please open your eyes man, then you will see more. If you would do it today, tomorrow you will see even more.

            My dear Prasanna,

            that may be the nature of average mind set in the country.

            There was one Edwin in this forum, who always attacked us just because we think differen tthan to that of his. For him, we have been just TAMILSthat have sought refuge on the west.
            I also add my thoughts to lanken forums, and see how the reactions are – most of them drop filthy loads if you would start adding the truths.

            THey are no used to see critics. No matter facts finding mission would bring all the truth about murders and high crimes that the Rajpaakshe clan have deliberatedly carried out, people would stay, as they have been.
            This is very dangerous than we just guess at.
            Besides, average people in lanken island are coming from very lower backgrounds.
            They would be happy with a packet of rice just being distributed to them. That was the trick that Rajapakshe most abusive men picked up for their political mobilisation.
            Alone the bugger BASIL to abuse the very same folks even today is beyond all ethics and morals, bu the does together with lanken MEDIA men.
            Rightly, incumbent prez is on a tour to SOUTH Korea, but Derana led by Rajapakahse clan visit that part of the world almost every other month for their collection purposes.
            Most living in that country as lanken labourers have been manipulated as nothing can help them.
            Chathural Alwis has been playing with lanken INNOCIENT PEOPLE by abusing their thoughts supporting further the hidden agendas of Derana.
            I WISH IF LANKEN MEDIA COULD BAN DHERANA FOREVER:

        Gota is almost like that Balusaraa with higher potential of aggressions.

        BOth have much in common than any other known figures.

        They just abuse their sympathisers, on and on.

        That goda hewa the one who has been licking the ass of Gotabaya should be brought before a discussion round to question as to why he thinks that Gotabaya should be the leader to represent us even if the bugger has not the least knowledge on lanken politics but their pocket filling familiy politics.

        And the facts why not we dont tend to give chances Nagaananda Or the like CIVIL society men, that rise up and make every geniuine effort to save the nation from being impractical politics for the last few decades.

        Any leader who is bound with law and order can heal the wounds of the society easily.
        JVPrs will have no future so long people would not forget 89 insurgency.

        They are just highly facists when it goes to punish the human beings.

        Just putting the blame on UNP, they have been making their efforts to sideby most abusive men in todays context.

        That is what is known as “born leadership” the kind of leadership he gave this nation when people like Ranil were running scared of Prabakaran and leaving people of SRI Lanka at the mercy of Tamil Terrorism. Remember Ranil saying that terrorism cannot be defeated so we have to negotiate! MR and Gota showed how terrorism can be defeated and our eternal gratitude to them and to our brave armed forces who sacrificed so much so that the country could live in peace.

    No more elections till the government keeps its promises and punishes the Rajapaksas and their entire criminal network…

    No more excuses this government does not need another term to take action against them…

    We want to see action within this term…

    Send the Rajapaksas to the Hage to face trial for their crimes against humanity (clearly this government is unable/unwilling to take action against them hence the delay)

    Where are those promised “Special Courts” to hear these categories of cases? I remember the “campaign” carried out by MP Ajith Perera against the then Minister of Justice who had to resign for the failure to expedite these cases. Now the newly appointed Minister of Justice got approval to set up those “Special Courts”. Why not establish those courts and transfer all these pending cases to be heard on a daily basis and dispose those early. I am sick of these “Fables” spread by this NGO “Nade”. Even it is worse and sickening to hear these purported statements by the President & PM. Why for GOD’s sake keep off these Investigations and court cases and just allow the smooth functioning of the Judiciary?

    Hello Colonel (Baya) Gota,Why are you so shit scared of arrest man?Did you think about this when you inhumanly dragged Sarath Fonseka and had him dumped in prison on frivolous charges?

    You are supposed to be a Buddhist and so you will know that according to Karma you sow the wind and will reap the whirlwind.Be a man you dam coward.Remember you can run but you cannot hide.Time to pay for your sins and crimes has come.No force on earth can stop it, not even the Abeyaramaya monks who are in your payroll.

      Rahu Kaaley,
      You know that Gota knows this time is “Rahu Kaaley” for him and his entire Rajapaksha family. Also as pure Sinhala Buddhist he believe that if he goes to prison during “Rahu Kaaley” then he will have to spend the rest of his life also in the prison. Imagine how many years he will have to be in the prison if the cases like Mig deal, Rathupaswella killing, Katunayaka Killing, Halawatha killing, Prageeth eknaligoda killing, Lasantha W killing, attacks on Media men, white van abductions, white flag case etc comes up? He is specially afraid that if he goes to prison during “Rahu Kaaley” that 27 prisoners who were killed in Prison under his direct orders will come as avatars and break his neck.Specially he feared that person, Nilame, who killed 2 Monks while trying to rob 2 Swards for Rajapaksha’s. I am sure that his “Rahu Kaaley” will continue for the rest of his life.

    Strange how Karma works!
    In his heyday, Gota sued a newspaper for defamation. The paper retained a team to defend. Gota in HIS then Defense Ministry website called the lawyers ‘traitors in black coat’. International Bar Association’s Human Rights Institute was concerned and pointed out to the then GoSL, the political interference/intimidation of the judiciary.
    Today he has ‘men in black coats’ defending him.

      The former national hangman Dr Gota (DSc) told BBC if found guilty they will hang him.

      I am not sure if he wanted to shoot him. On the other hand Sarath wanted to drag the entire clan and cronies to the Galle Face Green. Why? You may have to find out from Sarath.

    Going behind Gota is completely political and it is the need of LTTE rump. “IF they want to to corruptions, there are so many parliamentarians even inthe Cabinet who go got MEga millions and money is hidden in foreign accounts. We do not lot to talk about it Even RAVI” the LIAR got money from Raja Rajararthnam etc, govt did not chase out him from the parliament yet or he had not been arrested yet, IT says half the parliament is such thieves. Some one said almost every Parliamentarians at one time or the other has helped clear a Kudu container from the Harbour. So, there won’t be anyone clean in it.

    I just want to share my experience that I had by commenting on a post on dailymirror. The article was about Gota going to court to prevent arrest. My comment was that ‘the true face of the man is out and does not match with the ruthless face he showed in white van abductions, murders and the credit he claims in finishing the war. I got a barage of replies from grass eating idiots as Sam who has commented on this column rightly pointed out. I feel pathetic at the level of abuse they hailed at me and suprisingly one guy was an IT engineer working in the UK. It would have been excellent if people who disagree come up with facts rather than that it was just filth due to blind faith on the corrupt regime family. If this is the level of thinking that our future citizens hold then GOD BLESS AND GOD SAVE SRILANKA… Absolutely pathetic.

      Brother, Prasanna, we have a no good world down there. Most of them have been manipulated by feeding them with non-faccts:

      Media Prostitution is the reason people to turn outo to be fools. I am telling you. Most have been abused by Astro predictions and sorcery tricks as no second to the numbers in India or any other like minded countries. Most no matter if they have studied degrees or coming from good backgrounds go after Hakkgediya or cowdung believing invisible forces can gear up them from their miseries.

      Just talk to a cross section of society, you would learn how deep they have been fallen in. Most have no knoweldge about the facts and figures of the ground reality in terms of on going politics in the country.
      Last time, I happened to attack Rajapakshes loudly as I could – there, I was teased as I failed to continue my conversation with them.
      They still think that Rajapakshes and magical powers of the clan eleminated terror as a wonder maker did his job. Very same man to have abused all the state as any street monger would madly do – is no means a fact to them.
      Can you imagine ?
      Please check it yourself, what is being practised in the country is buddhism or … buddhaagama ? Buddhism is defined the teachings of buddha, and the aagama is what they have made to live up their kind of thoughts.

      As you added above, most that would not support their thoughts have always been attacked abusive using RAJAPAKSHE filthy terms. That is how majority of grass eaters have been upto now.
      Wimal weerawanse has no substance in his talks but the words.
      That seem to be outreaching the masses as a teledram would do the same job. Or not.

      Just interview hundreds coming from various walks of life in urban or rural areas, there you will see, almost many have been now caught by TELEDRAMA, as their house holds would not have anything better to be engaged with:

      Outsider of my nature to look at the manner lankens have been taken to… is beyond cure.. I would say.
      Rajapakshe or the like extremists have sowed their seeds so that gulliable folks would have further been abused for the political hedegemony of the kind of abusive men.

      Lanken politics pendelt between two fractions.

      1) Gulliable masses – whose minds have been abused by abusive politicians for their survivial. Here their tools have been buddhism ( so called buddhism not buddhas teachings), astrology and sorcery tricks

      2) Intelligent educated people – which are the minority consisting of all races – however young 0.9 million of new voters with their IT knowledge were part of this fraction and did help chasing away the Rajapakshe hedgedmonic powers by Jan 2015.

      —————-
      Historians from Cmbo university have made it very clear, majority folks in the country would need more time to change their attitudes and get ready for a paradigm shift of the society.

      Peoples thoughts and minds have been manipulated by Media prostitutes for such a long time as nothing can help them.

      I think the deteriorating levels of abusive culture is sometimes comparable to the manner how North koreans were made to cry on the dead leaders ceremony.

      Naivity and not being able to see it beyond has ruined their life styles.

      Nalinda De Silva or the like with Professor titles do behave the same just because he shoudl have felt bad being on the west going back to his post gradudate degree coureses. If he the like men would rise up and hold the kind of extremist public speeches, you dont need to see that how fools people can become.

      Not just IT men working in UK, some guys with acdemic titles while living on the west, see the same way.. but they realize when I start opening their eyes.

      We talk high about lanken sinahalya, but majority of us have been made fools….forever.

      Media men should be hung by their balls to allow average people become knowledgable.
      I thought after the dawn of new govt, things would turn out to be changing drastically, But nothing in terms of law and order improved to the tangible manner.

        Why do they the average in the country that stupid ?

        I think it is the Jathaka stories they have been made to believe – may be the reason.

        Just ask as to why they wear Pirith noole..

        Just ask them as to why they go and do BODDHI pujas until Bo tree roots would turn out to be rotten in over watering.

        Just question them as to why they listen to pirith, if they dont know what the contents mean ?

        Just question them, why to follow the others, if they would not understand the BANA being preached by the theros ?

        All these questions would be answered by them – JUST BECAUSE OTHERS FOLLOW them.

        These folks have been manipulated by SANGAYAS that have been taken the lead in this country. 4

        As many others I am born into BUDDHISM, but I respect only BUDDHA s teachings.
        I dont respect any sangayas that would not know anything but to follow according to ROTTEN Buddhawanasa…

        We the people in that island need to be well aware of what we are doing actually.
        That can then open the way for their future. BASTA:

    It is clear from the statements made by the President that the process is not free from politics, though he said “why ask me to implement the law?” with respect to his half brother’s hit and run case. If the arrests are politically controlled, why not the findings? We booted out MARA alias Jarapassa to have a fair system, professional system free from political interference. Remember, if big doctors, now on the mat, can give medical findings that a death was due to a motor accident and not a killing (Thajudeen Case) what is the guarantee of any of these findings as well, it is nothing to please the master or masters. This is a damn shame. If GR did wrong, put him behind bars and if he did not let him be free. I voted for this crowd to have a fair system. My gut feeling is that the whole thing is political horse trading. You have a finding to place a man on limbo and threaten his arrest for something in exchange. Isn’t that seeking a ransom? What is the difference between kidnapping some one and asking money for release and this?

    There’s no surprise here………What it demonstrates is that the allegations themselves are politically motivated and conducted using illegal law enforcement instruments such as FCID. Therefore decisions regarding further action including arrests will have to be political decisions based on prevailing political conditions. It was a team under Ranil who decided which cases to be probed. Therefore President has to wait for Ranil’s confirmation to take the next steps. A clear demonstration how law and order is applied yahapalana style.

    Temples in Sri Lanka and India won’t cut it anymore for MS. MR, Gota and most of that family made a few trips to the Vatican although they were not Catholics.

    Trying to prevent Gota being arrested by offering Bodhi Poojas is like trying to win cricket matches by recitng Gathas. Both practices religiously sacred and sacrosanct but practically futile. A wrongdoer must be arraigned before the law. What he has done for the country (such as it is) should be pleaded only in mitigation. There cannot be one law for Lamborgini Rajapakse and another for mausoleum Rajapakse.

According to this complaint, a 13 year old school girl residing at Aramanagolla, Horana had come to the Police station with her mother. A bag with stealed 08 coconuts, and a knife had also found. investigations has carried out by Police station Horana with regard to this incident and stealing is an offence police cannot be settled ever. It is a punishable offence under section 367 of Sri Lanka Penal Code. The officer in-charge of Police has no authority to bail out a person who is arrested on this charge.”

    give him immunity as Mugabe got it .. then you can set one set of law for politicians and another for public . anywhere it’s has been the case for the last 70 years. So who cares. one law for BBS, one law for politicians, one law for monks and one law for minority and one law for poor and one law for rich. This is what you have been doing. after. all we all are human beings . Do we need courts in Sri lanka if politicians have all laws in theit hands

    No political power of authorities having right to misused and misrule law of land and their judiciary institutions against political rivals.

    Come on Mr. President pluck up courage and set an example to the rest of the world you are a true follower of the precepts of Lord Buddha, lest they will say you are a hypocrite and such an inference will be a disgrace to our entire nation. Government has uttered enough fibs to the people subverting truth and justice. It is really unfortunate that we the citizens have to remind and compel the two leaders the basic tenets of good governance and allow the Law to take it’s own course as we observe that when law enforcing officers have done their duty they are being advised not to arrest the culprits and the master minds responsible for heinous crimes during the last regime. While you pay reverence to the Prelates in a show of allegiance to Buddhism you fail to understand your paramount duty is to bring justice to the people instead of moving heavens and earth to retain your political power. With your selfish agenda you and your corrupt political cohorts will be thrown into the dustbins sooner than later. Please take a lesson from the last regime for your own sake if you are not interested in our nation. You the politicians are sitting on a time bomb and the time is fast running out.

    Srilanka s justice system is flawed, all the crooks and murderers are free and only the poor and middle class are subjected to punishment, BUT , there is a hidden hand that will give justice as and when HE THINKS,and
    That justice is inevitable it WILL come one day. For now Gota and the Rajapaksa clan and his followers ,the racists in yellow robes can go behind the spineless and flawed justice of Srilanka. The silent victims of racism and killings of journalists will live in hope for the results that is sure to come one day .

    “Judicial System

    There is a high risk of corruption in Sri Lanka’s judiciary. Businesses do not have sufficient confidence in the judiciary’s independence and its ability to efficiently settle disputes and challenge government regulations (GCR 2016-2017). Irregular payments and bribes in return for favorable judicial decisions are not uncommon (GCR 2015-2016). Only one in twenty Sri Lankans perceive most or all judges and magistrates as corrupt (GCB 2015). The judiciary is subject to corruption and manipulation due to political appointments at every level and the intimidation and transfer of judges (BTI 2016). Corruption and political interference is especially problematic in lower courts (FitW 2017). Sri Lanka’s record in handling investment disputes is problematic, and court procedures can be time-consuming (ICS 2017). All commercial matters fall under the jurisdiction of the Commercial High Court of Colombo (ICS 2017). Disputes often become politicized and the stability of contracts could be improved upon (ICS 2017). Enforcing a contract in Sri Lanka takes longer than the regional average, but the costs are lower (DB 2017).”

    Judges in Jaffna are honest than Colombo Judges. Move the case to Jaffna. This was clearly shown when Commander of the Army was ordered to be present in courts. Also the rape case was heard and sentenced in a short period of time.

    Are we heading towards establishing the legendary “KEKILLE RAJJURUWANGE” Judiciary? Looks like. This Appeal Court case was filed on Nov. 28th and the “Verdict” was to be given on Nov. 29th. The “Appeal” was in relation to a “B” report filed in a Lower Court, where a case is PENDING against GR. The “Appeal” was to say that the matters relating to the Lower Court case are “FALSE” and do not come within the purview of the “Public Property Act” The AG who appeared in Appeal Court, represented by Deputy Solicitor General Mrs. Dilrukshi Wickramasinghe stated that the AG has NOT been notified of the Appeal Court case and she ONLY came to know of it through “Media”. Therefore the verdict must be delayed, until the AG’s presentations are heard. The Appeal Court stated, that the verdict date has been set and therefore there is no time to listen to AG. How and what STRANGE twists and turns take place in our Judiciary as of date? When a case is pending in a Lower Court, without allowing that court to hear the arguments (for & against) the case, a Higher Court (here the Appeal Court) entertain to look into the facts of the matter within a matter of TWO DAYS ( appeal court application was on Nov 28th & the verdict on Nov. 29th). Shouldn’t someone (AG) appeal against this “DECISION” in another Higher Court viz. Supreme Court? If not allowed to go UNCHECKED this will be a precedent and turn out to be a real “KEKILLE BUSINESS”.?

    Of cource rajapajsas are dictators ,authontorians . But they are the architects of this huge neo liberal economy in srilanka.they got an economy of less than 25 billion usd in 2005 and made that in to more than 75 billion economy only with in 10 years. They brought highest ever foreign direct invest ment to srilanka,1.6 billion usd in 2014, built high class business commuity, modern infrastructure and urban development . In unp case they very poor in economic management, they are the people like Jr or premadasa or gamini or lalith they people never handled a a economy of more than 15 billion usd. This is the problem unp has they do not know how to handle a huge economy, srilankan economy is not moving, business community is frustrated. Unp people is very poor in basic economic and social administration. Of course highclass business owners are great supporters of rajapaksas they donot caring about jvp or unp . The problem now the middle and upper class facing is our life style was destroyed under unp government. How we can support a party the people like preamadsa or jr who does not have a proper economic management skills for a huge neo liberal economy or very poor in administration. We have a solid option of the modern slfp led by rajapaksas who are the architects of this 75 billion huge neo liberal economy and great administrators excellent managers of liberal economy. Unp is sin and they are very innocent ,they donot have support of business community and very democrative but very poor in administration and neo liberal economic management. Rajapaksas are very power ful dictators they have all powerful support of business communities.but as middle class or upper middle class public in srilanka how we can support a party like unp does not have administration ability or utterly poor in economic management.this is a real truth in srilanka.
