Gota Went Berserk Because Of Madini

By Colombo Telegraph

“Of course Rajapaksas think the country is their fiefdom, but this dog issue was entirely a family matter; Gota got angry with Frederica Jansz because of his niece Madini Chandradasa” a source close to the Rajapksa family told Colombo Telegraph. The source who wishes to remain anonymous said when Secretary to the Ministry of Defence, Gotabaya Rajapaksa was criticized by a senior female member of the family last Tuesday for getting the regime a bad name Gotabaya confronted saying “so, do you want to expose Madini”

Madini Chandradasa

When Frederica Jansz asked;We were told that Capt. Praveen Wijesinghe has personally offered to fly to Zurich to bring this dog for you?” Gotabaya did not even declare the relationship between his niece and the pilot but angrily replied;  “Yes. So what? He is my friend – I have friends at SriLankan former Air Force officers who will do me favours – What is wrong with that?”

Gotabaya Rajapaksa went berserk when contacted by The Sunday Leader to clarify and find out if he was aware that the management at Sri Lankan Airlines had taken a decision to change a wide bodied A340 scheduled to fly to Zurich on Friday July 13, to a smaller A330. The change was to be made so that a SriLankan Airline pilot, who is dating a niece of President Mahinda Rajapaksa could personally fly the aircraft that would carry a ‘puppy dog’ for Defence Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa from Zurich.

The Sunday Leader was told by senior airline pilots that 56 passengers would have had to be off-loaded if the aircraft was changed. The pilot concerned is Capt. Praveen Wijesinghe who currently is dating Flight Officer Madini Chandradasa, the niece of President Mahinda Rajapaksa. When asked, Gotabaya Rajapaksa, while denying that he had any knowledge that CEO Kapila Chandrasena had ordered the change of aircraft from an A340 to an A330 as Capt. Wijesinghe was not qualified to fly the bigger aircraft, admitted that Capt. Wijesinghe would indeed be ‘passengering’ on one sector so he could bring down the dog for his wife. “Yes they are bringing a puppy – it is for my wife.  There is nothing wrong with that. I have every right to bring not just a dog but an elephant on SriLankan if I so wish – I am paying for the cargo.  I have every right to bring anything I want. This is not the first time – before this also they brought a dog for me…what is wrong – I am paying for the cargo I have every right,” Rajapaksa said.

When it was pointed out that bringing the dog was not the issue – but a loss of revenue for the airline as an entire aircraft was to be replaced with a smaller bodied plane – resulting in the loss of 56 passengers, Rajapaksa turned abusive.

Using foul language he screamed, “If you write one bloody word I will sue the writer and your newspaper – which I have already done –  I am not afraid of the bloody courts – I will sue you and shut down your f……. newspaper.” (click here  for full conversation)

      As with Sri Lankan Airlines which was taken over from Emirates so that Rajapakse could appoint his brother in law as chairman and various other cronies and turn it into a massive debt ridden enterprise, looted and hollowed out by the family that the Sri lanka tax payer has to bail out, The transfer of the public wealth of the nation into Rajapakse hands is going on apace.
      The lovely Bank of Ceylon General Manager’s House in Green Path Colombo 7 has been empty for a couple of years and will eventually be taken over by the Rajapakse family cartel, who are destroying and hollowing out national institutions and land grabbing in Cinnamon gardens and the northeast. Meanwhile, like University Dons who are denied their entitlements, the Bank of Ceylon General manage is being denied his entitlements. This is deliberately done in order to strip national institutions of their assets and transfer them into Rajapakse son’s and daughters, nieces and nephews and cronies hands. This practice must stop and a review of the inventory of the assets of all state institutions should be carried out to prevent the further looting of Lanka by the family that took over Sri Lankan Airlines from Emirates and has indebted the airlines to the tune of billions.
      The stripping of assets of State companies, institutions and banks and other institutions and the denial of the legitimate benefits available to heads of institutions like the Bank of Ceylon must stop. Bank of Ceylon employees unions should investigate this matter.

        James Bond,
        You forgot Mihinair – created and then run into the ground,having lost billions already, by a former Wharf Clerk who now ‘supervises’ the external affairs ministry.It is the Family Airline. Sri Lankan is mainly for dogs.
        This can happen only in sri lanka.

          MIHIN… It is a Family airline. The country is run by the Family. So, all resources of the country are owned by the Family. The airlines loss is the Family’s loss, and, in turn, the Country’s loss. Obviously, the people have to pay for it. After all, the people voted the Family in. And… the most powerful of the Family won the bloody war for the people.

    This is strange. If this foul mouth wanted to safe guard his dear niece, he should NOT have tried to orchestrate this puppy being transported like a prince, and not have involved either her boyfriend nor her in his abuse of power. This is just a load of bull. He is trying to redeem himself by pretending to fall on the sword for her, for something he should not have done. This is what happens when you have a family ruling us peasants. They will be constantly breaking the rules, and cover each other large behinds.
    Gota the goat, is now looking bad in the eyes of the world, so he has to resort to antics that he thinks might make him look so noble. What a joke.

        Is fredrica Janz honest ??? She says she has recorded what Gothabaya said but cleverly avoided the sarath Fonseka interview to which SF is allegedly have said about the white flag issue .Very clever move not have recorded one imp interview and not another. This woman is speaking with a forked tongue the minute she opens her mouth .

          Oh, come on! Both Sarath Fonseka and Gota have a nasty history. Sarath Fonseka is no saint although he is trying his best to become one for political reasons. Who ordered the murder of Lasantha you think?

          I am afraid, I dont see your point.

          Fredrica Janz is just one journalist among the many. What matters to many of the commnetators on this issues the behaviour of GR towards the journalists. Your uncle or whoever may be – GR is country ´s defence secretary. Dont mix it up with interview that Fredrica had with SF.

          GR or anyone who have been elected by President or people s vote should be examples to the nation rather than becoming that uncivilized in such conversation. Why to behave that aggressive,just not respecting the interviewer ? Besides this is not the first time GR behaves this way.

          But I personally respect -GR for making clear it further in the interview with Rajpal. Lankens in general need to improve DISCUSSION CULTURE.. smile nobody is perfect, but open discussions can always bring us further.

          1. any man or a woman must have the freedom to have any relationship with the one that he/she likes. Why do any body wants to dig into their personal affairs? Rajapakshas can not have relationships?

          2. There is nothing good happening in this island. Whether Rajapakshas know this or not, mean things are happening in their names. Thats the truth.

          3. When it comes to Fedrica Jans; come on, this is called DITTA DHAMMA for her. Thanks to her if she is not lying. As you have clearly mentioned about SF’s white flag thing ; a funny reporter who keeps on changing of her own statements.

          This is not a biased comment. basically THE COUNTRY HAS GONE TO DOGS, THIS DHARMA DEEPAYA has become a joke to the whole world.

    Gota the GOAT was trying to allow his niece and the boyfriend to have a few days in a country together at government expenses. Gota must be thinking about his GOTA”WAR OR GOTA”S DREAM’ and shouting at FJ. This is good for FJ for publishing false information and getting GSF into trouble. FJ knew that the White Flag issue was on the public domain since 20th May 2009, but on instruction she received from GOTA she wanted to trap GSF, and GSF felt for the trap.
    When GOTA need a man for his wife which Pilot will fly the plane to America?

    Ah ! Now when did foul language by a govt.servant be Ok to protect Niece? Thats rubbish.The issue here is abuse of office by incurring loss of income and by a secretary to a ministry.

    Does one think the secretary to ministry of cooperative affairs,trade or any other can abuse office (loss of income & foul language)in this manner?

    Dear Gota

    So many stray dogs in Sri Lanka. Take one or two. Provide a home for them. Forget your Swiss puppy.

    Consider sending your wife to Embark, an organisation run by Odel’s Otara for stray dogs. They are doing a fabulous job. Your wife and you can learn from them about serving the the nation.

    National airline Sri Lankan is not your family property. It is a vital, strategic business asset that Sri Lanka must have. It must be run according to best business practices.

    While you are at it please fire MR’s brother-in-law from the chairman’s seat at Sri Lankan. Include all extended family members employed by Sri Lankan and all your unproductive cronies as well.

    We, the Sri Lankans may be silent, but furious. Abuse that is taking place n our country is unprecedented.

    Arab Spring may arrive in Sri Lanka earlier than you think, if this continues.

      Anyone in SL is entitlied to bring animals from abroad . Chandrika Kumaratunge,her daughter and many rich and wealthy Colmbo 7 crowd have imported dogs from a long time . Gota is no exception . As he points out anyone can even import an elephant if they pay for it . How many expensive cars are brought to SL . This expence of importing a dog is no where near the expence of importing foreign cars. The importing of cars should be halted first in preference to the import of dogs .

        You have missed the crucial point in the whole episode – it is
        not about brining a puppy or elephant or even sharks, but due
        to this, 56 passengers had to be off-loaded following the change
        of Plane on this day to suit the qualifications of the family
        friend pilot. What is the loss and who cares – except F.Jansz?

        I therefore recommend that this puppy arriving here be re-named
        JANSZ, in keeping with the absolute power of the ruling family!!

        Corrupt people in Colombo 7 have been abusing state property before? Therefore Rajapakse clan has a right to do the same?

        Please don’t speak like Gota. The Regime will crush you all at a worse level than the Middle Eastern dictators. They have their own expereince in crushing people and eliminating them at tens of thousands. After all, most of the Sinhalese people were quiet. Many screamed that it was an internal issue and the international players should stay away. Be prepared for a worse bloodbath.

    Now it’s a puppy from Europe. But how many of you know that Gota keeps four sharks as pets at his home? He told The New Yorker magazine that the sharks belong to his wife. The salt water in the tanks have to be replenished weekly, by a bowser. Who pays for all this?

    Not bad for a guy who stacked shelves in a 711 in LA.

        Kumudini,

        Please read The New Yorker, January 17, 2011, page 55, for reference to the shark tank, eight feet tall and twenty feet wide. The author of the article, titled “Death of the Tiger”, Jon Lee Anderson, interviewed Gota at the latter’s home in Colombo, and saw the shark tanks. Gota said “They’re my wife’s” and said that the sea water is brought every two weeks in “special tanker trucks”.

Fredrica- hats of to you for your bravery. Hope monster Gota would not plan something secretly when to heat is over to bump off her.

    I have no issues with changing the aircraft if the passenger load was already down, and too small for a A340. Then that would be an operational issue and Jansz was simply trying to make a story out of it to discredit Rajapakshas. She will learn her lesson in due course, I am sure of that.

    What I take issue with is importing dogs from Switzerland by a family who are in public record standing for national independence and sovereignity. To set nationa standards, to develop local industries and encourage indigenous enterprise. From such a family comes this totally contradictory western practice of spending millions of foreign exchange for a bloody dog to keep a Rajapaksha woman from grumbling. No wonder what they do with the graft they take from foreign contractors. It is a disgrace and now the public know from Gota’s own mouth what kind of two faced, hypocrits they are.

    What is wrong, may I ask, them adopting a local pariah dog, or even a mongrel, to keep the lonely woman happy. I am sure that a dog who is a man’s best friend, as well as a woman’s, could be much better than a cantankerous husband. Being Buddhists in public face, the family would also have acquired a lot of merit by giving a luxurious home for a poor dog, whom I dare say would have been a better loyal friend than Karuna or the LTTE dropouts that has joined the government for money, including their treasurer what’s it.

    I bet any rich guy in Col:seven will ever spend this much of his own hard worked personal money to bring down a dog. After all Gota says this his his own money…Hallow..isn’t you are paid with Sri Lanka tax payers money who are struggling to make ends meet.You and the rest of the GOSL ministers don’t care to waste public money. After all you don’t need a personal courier to bring a dog in the plane.The dog carriage is in the cargo bay, and an Air Lanka flight steward could have brought it to you. Also recently stray dogs in Colombo suburbs started disappearing and hope you are aware of it. Is this the way you run your defense ministry also. No wonder the country is heading for catastrophe thanks to you guys. Hats off to Fredrica Jansz.
