Gota No-Show On Day One Of D A Rajapaksa Museum Trial

Day 1 of the D A Rajapaksa museum trial before the Special High Court proceeded as planned today but was disappointing; main man Gotabaya Rajapaksa was a no-show.

Gotabaya Rajapaksa

Representing Gota, PC Ali Sabry informed the three judge bench that his client was unable to be present before Court today as he has been mandated a six week rest period following the heart surgery he underwent in Singapore.

Accordingly the Special High Court extended the period granted for Gota to travel overseas for medical reasons, until July 24.

The D A Rajapaksa museum case was taken up before the Special High Court today after Gota’s writ and revision applications challenging the Special Court’s jurisdiction to hear the case against him, were rejected by the Court of Appeal yesterday.

The Court granted permission for Gota to travel overseas for medical treatment with effect from May 24 until June 2.

However, through a special motion filed by PC Sabry on June 3, the Court was informed his client was unable to return to Sri Lanka as mandated by the Court, due to having undergone heart surgery in Singapore.

      No Steve Gota has no heart, so no need of a heart transplant!
      .
      Medial excuses are Sri Lankas favourite mode of avoiding the Law.
      .
      They kill two birds with one stone dodge the law while enjoying a holiday as well.
      .
      Its just sad that we have such low grade conniving doctors arse licking and towing the line with these political scum. Doctors without ethics,

        Gemini Cricket / June 19, 2019 You are wrong. All these politicos go abroad for medical treatment fearing because they are afraid a patriotic doctor would possibly inject an anesthesia to make sure not to wake up again.?

          Athula,
          How do you explain the fact that each time any of these so called politicos gets arrested, third grade doctor refers him to a private ward for treatment?
          No jail time!
          How patriotic is that?
          We have seen other instances where doctors have given medical certificates saying that someone got shot in the head and was sent to Singapore.
          Meanwhile the fellow was perfectly fine and dandy.
          What kind of patriotism is that?
          Most doctors are plain and greedy businessmen, willing to do anything for a penny.
          Am I right or wrong?

          All politicos of either side, have no trust in GMOA – Gon Moda Outcast Assholes Doctors particularly, the office bearers as they live in their own dream world of politics. They have no time for scientific research or patient’s welfare.

      Steve:
      I rather doubt it for the reason that for a transplant to be done there has to be an organ already there to be replaced.

      Ducking and Diving is what the big mouth murderer can do now.
      Karma is catching up man.
      Say no more.
      His agenda for hiding in Singapore with medical condition is a ruse for something more sinister awaiting for him either with America or due to his involvement with SL war crimes.
      Noose is tightening , Heart Attack and surgery used as diversion.
      These Pakshes are experts in drama anyway , no education but Street drama with 4 brothers and the imbecile son as Drama Queens in Action.
      They want to come back to power along with the other Crooks to cover up their murderous and Robbing of the state Crimes. Do we need them again folks , A Categoric NO!!
      Pathetic lot.

      After a Heart Operation, if Got-a-Baya is not fit enough to face a Trial at Court, would He be fit enough to Occupy a Highly Stressful Political Position,

      If He is So Concerned about His Health, He should not even think of Standing for President of Sri Lanka!

    He has no a good heart.
    It must be reconditioned .
    Anger, Ego, Vicious and wicked thoughts have damaged that.
    Gotabaya you must understand that one day soon you must leave this world even though your was done by passed.
    Not only you all your relatives must know and understand this reality now.
    You can not take whatever you stolen from public money.

    Justice delayed is justice denied. People of Sri Lanka are denied of justice for the swindling of public funds for private purpose.
    I wonder how Mt Elizabeth in Singapore issues such medical reports previously to Duminda de Silva now to Gota.

    My dear child Gotha baya,
    Have you heard a word called “Patimokka”. It applies to lay community as well. If you are a man, a Buddhist , not a mouse come and stand in front of the poor helpless ‘Silly Lankans’ like one. Admit your faults and beg for ‘forgiveness’. You do not have the guts to do that, do you?. That will put you on a better portal than hiding behind a glass screen. Disappear like you did in 1992, is that what you are planning to do? But, be aware, there are law suits in USA as well. What a sorry state of mind you have gotten into?. May you be well, happy peaceful and most of all free from suffering. Metta.

    It looks like the court case will be delayed until Gotapaya become next President. October 2018 political coup followed by 21st March Bomb blast coup are part and partial of these political coups. Ranil is in full support of this political coup. The hospital in Singapore must be in partnership with Mahinda Family. Unfortunately Srilankan media is control by Mahinda group and truth will never come.

    What a country and what a bunch of buddhist patriots? When these buggers are sick they run abroad and never trust the local dostharayas. When they want merit they run to Hindu Kovils in India because they dont trust Buddha and Buddhism. same earlier too. The sinhala kings ran to Thamil nadu to find a queen or ran to Thamil nadu to kill their adversaries. Then they scream of a non -existing “Sinhala Buddhist country” , that evolved exclusively in lankawa? But yet there are morons to follow them.

    PEOPLE: Be watchful and careful. A “Heart Surgery” is done to “REJUVENATE and “ENERGIZE” the life cycle. After all he has to respond to the call of “Mahanyake of Asgiriya” to be the “HITLER” – the next cycle of life after becoming the “President” of Sri Lanka.

    My dearest future president (longing & desperate to be) of Sorry Lanka Gotha baya,
    Why aren’t you in a hospital in ‘America’. They got the worlds best facilities and knowhow, don’t they?. Is it because there isn’t the possibility of buying ‘Medical certificates’ or your assets are frozen over there?. Who is paying for the latest episode of your drama?

    Our nation lost that Judiciary credential and confidence of fair system of legal order of country.
    That has been leds to lawless nation by promoting Anarchism of Judiciary and extremism of Terrorism by remain in political power of UNP- regime that as whole-period by hook or crook.
    Even this not that norms of that bourgeois democracy has been origin ,development and matures by last 450 years of capitalism . This is a UNP nescient Liberalism! Well, that UNP crony capitalism neither Liberalism nor democracy.?

    Unfortunately that Sri lanka has lost all basic norms of values of Democracy, it convention and traditions Parliamentary Democracy has been hijacked by political Terrorism back of UNP + TNA+(LTTE) + JVP & Muslim Congress (Religion political Party) of ISIS of which most venerable ruthless Terrorist by prevailing in Island .under current regime …since 15/1/8.

    This mode of unholy alliance of (UNP,JVP, TNA, MC, SLFP ) has establishment that undemocratic order by dismantling which that nations establishing institution last 71 years from 1948.

    What has happen last 4 years and half ? Ruling parties caucus has upside -down Judiciary..procedure by influences of that tools of state apparatuses of certain Police-power; an enforcement authorities that directed order from Wickramasinghe of ruling junta of UNP leadership.
    In fcat ,
    UNP has form new Junta operation in Temple Trees as a headquarters give all order several key institution against normal operation of investigation by Police authorities of outside Department of Police services. This is what has happen to GR case ?
    I am not blaming for claiming for Judiciary, because this operation beyond their power of Judiciary and its authority.
    It has created a new platform of an invisible enforcement system of governance by replace of” good governances and rule of law” of by broken promised by UNP .

      Ranjith Gunawardene,

      Don’t be a bloody Idiot displaying your ignorance. The article is about Gota’s Health Status and the treatment in Singapore and not about the UNP. You are paranoid about the UNP and your post has no relevance to the topic. Joker No. ONE.

    He was in Jaffna working under Maj. General Denzil Kobbekaduwa. When General was killed by a land mine at Kayts on August 1992, this coward got scared and deserted the army (with his brother’s advise) and ran away to USA as a refugee worked in a petrol pump. He came back as a brave man when his brother became president. What a brave man he is? Do not boast this coward as brave man. This patriotic brave man trying to play the same gimmick what he did in 1992. Hope this coward will come back alive to Face the trial (not to become president).

      ” this coward got scared and deserted the army (with his brother’s advise) and ran away to USA as a refugee worked in a petrol pump. “

      Did he migrate to USA as refugee?
      He conveniently won lottery visa, after the end of JVP as being armed insurgents perhaps reward from the US.
      He also worked for a IT company.

    This sounds like an expensive delay tactic by GoRa’s lawyers. The key question should be about who is putting up for bills to stay in Singapore. A considerable amount may be coming from Avant Garde while some may come from the loot now in Dubai. Easy come, easy go!

    His all other murder cases are in the back burner, but this case is only pursued to prove that he is innocent. That case was filed only to take forward the agenda of the Yahapalanaya. Karuna got out of abusing the expensive car. That was the situation with Vass and others’ cases too. Pillaiyan is still inside because he told Old Royals hired him to target the New King. So this Museum Case is not one really deserve museum. The matters outside this case are more interesting than this case, because it is to bring Old Brother Prince in Yahapalanaya’s path- the anti- American. Ranil is now on the full swing to convert Old Brother Prince to anti-American team. Though first Old King and latter New King worked with Old Brother Prince to get him out of the election, in favor of an anti-American candidate, but Ranil’s effort is the latest. This too is the usual Yahapalanaya’s jugglery. The meeting between him and Ranil is one of the important types which can save or destroy the country.

    New King said that there cannot be three prong competitions in the EP election. The question is why shouldn’t there be one? Which enemy of New King would benefit out of three prong competition? New King’s negotiation did not go well with Old Royals (at least so far). So a common candidate for them both, SLFP and Slap Party has not materialized. New King said he may support UNP candidate if they place somebody agreeable to him; in other words, an anti-American + anti-Ranil candidate. But whoever UNP place there shouldn’t be matter for New King because New King will not be there after election. But Ranil will be. So UNP, in all circumstances, will be placing Ranil’s candidate. Still it has to be anti-West; pro China. Then only the Country can be saved. Ranil, New King and Old King all are in agreement on this within them. For that, they need a Winnable Sinhala Buddhist Candidate.
    2015 Election proved the feature of “Sinhala Buddhist” may not win the election. So campaign has to be fine-tuned with other techniques, too. That is one of the reasons the all three trios agreeing that three prong completion will put the power in the hand of pro American, even less popular candidates like Mangala. That would then become an easy victory for West while they all three struggling to prevent that. So now, Old and New Kings are regretting to have allowed SLFP go split into two. Rajitha don’t want to be in the completion; but as protection he want to move to slap party. CBK is playing low profile. Her influence in this election is minimized. Her selection would not be anti-west even if it is not pro West. But she can do something thorough SLFP only after New King leave the Chair.

    Though America has not released Old Brother Prince’s citizenship yet, his candidacy is not ruled out yet or he didn’t deny his standing for pro America. So he is a needed person to Ranil, in case if he wins in 2020, especially on American side. Ranil have had many secret meeting with Old King, New King but so far nothing with the “to be the Future King”. So, for Ranil the meeting at Singapore is more important than the case in Hulftsdorp.
    Indian activity in Lankawe slowed down due to the election but Chinese and American parts were going actively. America is racing to balance with China, while India is standing in the middle and blocking both from reaching Lankawe. State Secretary Pompeo’s visit is related to that. Lankawe has refused to issue the Visa to Secretary Mike Pompeo. So he is skipping his visit to Colombo this time. Mike Pompeo can go to Iran, if he wants, he can do that with North Korea. But it is not that easy with Lankawe. Lankawe cannot hold off his visa forever. But delaying maximum possible will help then to wait India come out the election and set it off with America. Mangala is still in his hand, has not fallen in American hand. Ranil wants to redeem Old Brother Prince, who appears to be already in American hand.
    America is following “the law of ISIS “ i.e. “They have to win every day, but have to we win only one day”. Ranil understand this maxim better than the other two members of the trio.

    This and much more were expected. They have to dodge until nomination for the presidential election is near and then someone like Sarath De Silva who will come along to set aside all the court cases against Gota Rajapakse and deliver a verdict to go ahead with the election as happened with his older brother who was rescued from the investigation of the disappearance of Tsunami funds in 2005.

    Not Only the Doctors Dont forget the Cheap Lawyers who aide these political rascals, It is they who represent the culprits & make excuses for these rouges. The Courts SHOULD have a reasonable Time frame To Conclude high profile cases, No one will be convicted at this Sad State We can then see how our Doctors & Lawyers will react. God Bless Sri Lanka

    BAYA- GOTA is a heartless fellow. So it can’t be a surgery on heart. It can be a case of Anal splinter is permanently damaged which is induced due Court cases pending in Sri Lanka as well as in US. So loss of control in alimentary tract may be causing non stop purging. This will be automatically revert back to normalcy if SLPP gets into power. Root cause and the remedy is clear to people with an atom of grey matter inside the skull.

    comment by Dr Mullerian
    My argument is that GR has been victims of ongoing Judiciary system has jeopardized by UNP leadership of Wickramasinghe clan and his legal click of legal luminaries of base in local Mates and foreign advices.
    To be target on one person (GR) that by Wicks & click of UNP has change entire procedure of courts by denied accepted norms of Legal order by and largely replace an additional High Courts.
    It is an unaccept to me .
    I do not wanted to undermined equality before law that is one key pillar of function of democracy of governance and rule of law . Rule of Junta by UNP are not in the line of norms of Judiciary that they wanted system of Kangaroo Courts in favor of verdicts to be on which that fulfill in their political ambitions of recolonization of Island by USA military intervention the proposed pet projects of that SOFA ! $$$$
    There are having provinces for that legal system to be establishment of court functions for that a Additional Courts also. I accepts that.
    But these movers is essential the time ripe on that have to taken up by special circumstances like ISIS 21/4 attack of Terrorist; of Central Bank Bond Scam of case; Genocide by Muslim Doctors that birth control of majority race of Sinhalese females by unwanted operation by achieved doctors of Muslim of religion target curtail of majority populations of Sri lankan. It was/is and desire Islam line of politics has be address by court of law like that.
    In these circumstances Additional High court having more responsabil jobs to do that.
    I do not think that GR has charged has come under not that category. The crux of matter GR supposed or tipped to be next Presidential candidate for 2020. Presidential election and elected of person will and wish of sovereignty of People of Sri lanka. There is no way to interrupted by our legal barriers to obstructed by GR candidates for President of SDof Sri lanka.

    Jay Chambers and JD would know his actual state.

    The drama is worse than Indian movies and the wise brave lion sons and daughters are taken for a ride every time.

    I feel for him, since he is between. Citizenship revocation is applied and might get it after elections and he is doomed forever who will have the last laugh.
