Gota’s Death Squad Likely Killers Of Thajudeen

The murder of popular ruggerite Wasim Thajudeen was likely carried out by former Secretary to the Ministry of Defence Gotabaya Rajapaksa’s ‘death squad’, Colombo Telegraph reliably learns.

Gotabaya RajapaksaAccording to a group of ruggerites who were part of ‘Rajapaksa prince’ Yoshitha Rajapaksa’s entourage on the night of Thajudeen’s death – following a heated exchange of words between the two, an angry Yoshitha had met Gotabaya Rajapksa in person later that night and demanded for ‘Thajudeen to be done away with’.

At this point, Yoshitha had been egged on by several other players of the Navy rugby team who had urged him to ensure Thajudeen’s removal, pointing out he had always ‘disrespected’ the Rajapaksa brothers.

Sources claim the ‘Rajapaksa princes’ attempted to recruit Thajudeen to the Navy team on several occassions, but they had been repeatedly turned down by him who had always made it very clear that he does not wish to maintain any engagements with the Rajapaksas.

Former president Mahinda Rajapaksa on August 09th denied his son Yoshitha was involved in the alleged murder of Thajudeen. He said a future UPFA government would conduct an impartial probe into the alleged killing of Thajudeen if the party comes to power at the parliamentary polls. Cabinet Spokesman Minister Rajitha Senaratne said that investigations have unearthed the involvement of three Presidential Security Division (PSD) personnel who served during Rajapaksa’s time in the incident.

Thajudeen is believed to have been abducted in a defender jeep bearing the number plate WP – KA 0642 belong to the Red Cross Society of Sri Lanka at the time had been “gifted” to the Siriliya Foundation of former First Lady Shiranthi Rajapaksa. Last week the Sri Lanka Red Cross Society said; “We would like to inform the public that Sri Lanka Red Cross Society is unaware of the activities and maintenance of this vehicle from the period of August 2011 to until the time the vehicle was retrieved in this year as it was entrusted to the Siriliya Saviya Foundation. On 30th June 2015, the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) requested our President and our Director General to provide statements on the change of color of the said vehicle, to which both has provided all information known, to the authorities. The vehicle is now in the procession of the Criminal Investigation Department.”

    RENUKA DE MEL….. Kindly provide the list of names.

    There is no Likely, Ifs and Buts…………….
    Either confirmed evidence or nothing at all.

    Nobody is guilty untill proven and its a long way.
    Just leave Gots and the matter to rest for now as there are more important things for Yahapalanaya to focus.

    First salvo has been issued by Dr. Harsha De Silva. ” Sri Lanka must focus on Exports” – IS THIS CALL LOUD AND CLEAR ?????????????
    Country must survive first.

        Baya Gota:
        You are WRONG: the guy is not an idiot, he simply thinks that he can bellow “economic advancement” and murders will go un-investigated.

        Those of us who witnessed, first hand, the violence that the Rajapaksas visited on, among others, Kandy Sports Club fans know what they are capable of. How about 5000 tickets bought by the SRI LANKA NAVY for naval personnel attending matches at Nittawela (whose buses came loaded with clubs and poles) and which resulted in about 50 spectators being hospitalized in post-game violence with NO ACTION being taken by the police?

      Thondamannar – Does this mean that the culprits, murderers,political
      thugs ,treasury burglars should be given presidential pardon and get them on board and get on with building of the country.No my friend,
      the first job will be to eliminate the undesirables and put the culprits behind bars and then get on building the country with decent people. Had enough of it, the people said.

      Both Mr. Sirisena, the President and Mr. Ranil Wicremasinghe, the PM vouched for the elimination of anti Govt,elements before they start a new govt. Are murderers of MPs, and journalists and siphoning of billions of Dollars of people’s money from the shores of Sri lanka, peanuts for you.?
      The current govt.’s period of governing will be short lived if they
      slacked or favoured or interfered with judiciary to help those indicted
      for serious crimes committed against humanity in the past decade.People
      as a whole, wanted good governance and every move of the new administer
      -ators will be watched very closely.

      Srilanka will be cleared from WARCRIME AT UNHRC.

      It is reliably learned that a report from the United States of America is going to clear Sri Lanka of war crimes by stating that Sri Lankan forces followed the Fourth Protocol of the Geneva Convention, which is relative to the protection of civilian persons in the time of war, stating that innocent people had been used as human shields for four to six months by the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam, and thus the Sri Lankan forces had attempted to save those being held captive and against their will, and thus no war crimes had been committed by the Sri Lankan forces. Nothing much will happen at the UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC) in September, Attorney-at-Law Dr. Prathiba Mahanamahewa remarked.

        It is nothing Islamic about exporting housemaids. It is income for Sri Lanka from those exploited and suffering women and cheap labour for the Arabs who oppress and suppress them.

    Only Thajudeen? This scoundrel’s death squad is responsible for the murders of many………Lasantha, Prageeth and many more. Maybe someone should turn the same death squad of rabid dogs in his direction. What the heck is Ranil waiting for? Charge him with all the murders and throw this low life pariah in jail for life.

        @vis8, this shows you are a mental defective. You cannot even understand the difference between a criticism (me) and racism (you). For you anyone who is a Tamil, you automatically assume is a TE supporter and feel insecure as you think a Tamil has dominion over you. You must be a crossbred mongrel who cannot distinguish the difference between a well meaning Lankan and an ardent supporter of TE. Yes, I am willing to go to Tamil Nadu if you are willing to go with me to India where we can part ways once we land there, you could head to Orissa and I will head to Kerala. Then the Veddahs can have their land back. Unfortunately I don’t have to do that as I have been living in beautiful Canada for more than 3 decades. So once you get to India, please let me know and I will send you a few dollars for a plate of rice and sambal.

    Someone should definitely investigate this murder. I’m pretty sure if hondamannar’s family member was in the same situation as he wouldn’t be speaking like this. There are several allegations concerning murder and kidnapping been done by Rajapaksa princes and Gotabaya Rajapaksa. The third second is still in China since January 6th this year after cases were filed against him on rape and sexual assaults.

    thondamannar if you have nothing important to say then don’t comment here. An innocent life of a talented youngster has been lost, it’s a major issue.

    Most people in Colombo city already know how Rajapaksa’s princes have been roaming around the city as if there is no law preventing them to do anything. At least now I hope this new government which came to power to reduce the corruption in the country will find some justice for this ruggerite.

      Jim, So you think Thajudeen’s blood and life is cheap for you?

      What is your take on Lasantha’s blood and life, Rathupaswela victims, Bharatha and all white van victims, are they also cheap for you?

      You must be also a blood sucker like your MARA & GORA clan. Do you all have any ancestry with Draculas ? Please clarify.

      Yes, we can still remember how GOTA told Stephen Zacker of BBC that “We will KILL him” in reference to a question about Sarath Fonseka. If he can openly say that he can commit crime without any fear, then we don’t need any other proof.

    There is a due process that has to follow. All these articles are politically motivated to further nail Rajapakse down as the UNP’s victory is not a strong one and may be pulled down with opposition’s strategic moves or opposition will harass the progress of the govt using democratic means. At this time UNP’s moves are to have Rajapakses bros arrested with the influence of the West.

    We know from the investigation of another murder i.e. the Ekneliagoda case that here was an elite army unit created and operated by GR to find LTTE cadres who were hiding before and after the war and finish them off. The unit had very high ranking officers among its members. Some of these members have been gullibly promoted up by MS. Because the government had to shield army officers from human rights abuse charges that can be brought against them in UN there maybe no way of going forward with these investigations without creating a big mess. That is why GR indulged in these activities because he knew no one can touch him without tainting the army first. The officers of the military have to get together with the government and come up with a plan to get GR without causing trouble for the army.

      Polished:-
      The new National Government is not going to interfere with the Investigations of the Police or the Judiciary, unlike the Previous One.

      Before addressing wrong doings of the Previous Government, the new Government has to educate the new MPs on the priorities of their new Status.

      Being an MP, is not a Position from which to amass Personal Wealth, but a Position from which to Address the grievances of the Common Man.

      One good first step seems to be the Appointment of our most High Profile Sportsman, Kumar Sangakkara as Ambassador for the War against Drugs!

        “The new National Government is not going to interfere with the Investigations of the Police or the Judiciary, unlike the Previous One.”

        I really wonder whether that is true. Why is Yahapalana so selective in the people it chooses to pursue for alleged crimes ?? So far, only the patsies have been on the hook. How come ?

        So far, despite much salacious rumor and pulling of chest-hairs about Rajapakse Corruption, not a single charge has been brought against them.

        Was it all just a Big Circus for the Election Time, or the Rajapakses are Brilliant Financial Wizards who can hide apparently Billions upon Billions of Rupees (if the Chest Beaters are to be believed) or is it all just Humbug ??

        Let us see what this all ends up as.

    The government is moving slowly or not at all in bringing the killers of Lasantha Wickrematunga, Pradeep Eknaligoda,5 Thamil students killed by suspected Special Task Force on January 02, 2006, 17 workers belonging to the agency Action Contre la Faim (ACF, Action Against Hunger)shot and killed execution-style in Mutur on on August 4, 2006. There is talk, talk but action is lacking.This will undermine the credibility of good governance and the upholding the rule of law.

    Hi Yasara Abeynayake!
    By Chackravarthy

    I have my sympathies for you. I am approaching your matter with open mind, not influenced by various media reports and the gossips that circulate through social media, which paint you a girl of low morality.

    At the same time your own statement created some doubts about your truthfulness. Was that statement issued by you, or narrated directly to the reporter by you on your own will, or you were asked or forced to do so what others scripted?

    You had mentioned about your engagement break up with a VVIP son citing their belief in stars and planets as the main cause. ” Yoshitha and I were engaged and it came to an end because our horoscopes did not match and his family was very superstitious about astrology related matters.” This was part of your expiation.

    Well Miss, that family’s belief in astrology and superstitions are well known to this country. One question. Will such people match the horoscope before the engagement or after the engagement? An engagement is a pre marriage function after having approved all aspects of a marriage. It is a semi final like game where a word is a deed unless some thing extra ordinarily takes place.

    My mind does not allow me to think that the ex ruling family would play so recklessly in the life of a young woman. Was there an engagement function? When and where was it and who were the guests? Are there any documentary evidence to support your claim?

    You say “I never knew Mr. Thajudeen nor have I ever spoken to him”. Let us presume I believe your words. You admit you were a girl friend of a prominent rugger player. That way you might have gone with him to watch some important matches. Though you have never met him nor spoken to him, are not you aware of a fellow rugger player called Wasim Thajudeen, the guy once captained the national team?

    Let that be. Whether it is true or not but it is alleged that the vehicle WP – KA 0642 donated by the Red Cross to the Siriliya Saviya Foundation headed by the former First Lady was used to abduct the said Thajudeen few minutes before his death, by accident or murder. Why should this vehicle involve in this case? Who gave order for this vehicle to be on the road in the middle of the night?

    That way the gossip snake has entered the Carlton Villa and the media un officially says a prince who you said to be your prince at one time was the reptile’s target. Unlike you, so far the vehicle WP KA- 0642 has not issued any statement saying “I never knew Mr. Thajudeen nor have I ever carried him”.

    Besides, what was the reason for you to take up an overseas diplomatic post while you were happily working with the Carlton TV group? Is it true that when you were given the diplomatic post in Australia, a close friend of you, a beautician too was given a diplomatic post in Italy where she still lives?

    Further Thajudeen wasn’t a terrorist nor a criminal. Not even a rich kid to be abducted for ransom but a popular young sports man said to have no enemies. But the investigating officers say he had enemies who killed him. Who, and for what, are the questions?

    Fourth estate speculates a tripartite romantic affair. At this moment God only knows the truth. If law proceeds in the right direction the country will know in due course. Until then I have my sympathies for you Yasaara Abeynayake and I trust your version blindly because (my) love (for you) is blind.

    GOD has been kind to bring in a new set of educated people to serve thus nation now. People such as Harsha getting such high preferential votes indicate that the people need decent administration.

    Harsha, all the beat to you. You are a knowledgeable economist who has the ability to formulate economic policies. Hope RW takes note of this man’s abilities when deciding on portfolios.

    Monday’s election is further proof, if one is need, on
    how Gotabaya Killer Rajapaksa antagonised the minority
    communities.

    There is blood in his hand. His criminal involvements
    must be probed. He gave approval for the Navy to spend
    Rs 35 million for Yoshitha to go for several training
    courses. He is made a Lieutenant in the Navy.

    When the mother was questioned by the Police, Yoshitha
    comes in Navy uniform. How can this happen? Now we
    are hearing that his hands are also soiled with blood.
    What about thoththa baba Shiranthi? Her brother had a harem
    at Sri Lankan Airlines.Shiranthi went around collecting
    money and vehicles from NGOs.

    Probe Gotabaya’s killer squads. What comes out will be
    nerve wracking.

    The present governments mandate is to bring to book all wrong doers and not succumb to horsedeals. If the government remains faithful to its promises they will usher a new nation which lost all its prestige and honour during the earlier regime. That is exactly what the nation looks forward to and they must not be dissapointed. It is not vengence that we seek but justice.

    There is no need for anyone to panic. If this privileged brat Yoshitha is not involved, he should not be afraid. Let the investigation continue, the medical examiners do their work, and we shall all get official conclusion. If indeed the Rajapaksa’s are involved, no one should be surprised. There is a ugly history here.
    ALL those who stand up to them or criticize them, a kidnapped, threatened, missing, or killed.
    It cannot be a coincidence. If this unfortunate young man is found to be murdered, shame on those cowards who planned this, and carried it out. They should face the consequences and rot in hell.

Even among educated u have the crooks and good ones, some for the greed of money and some for fear of life would have issued bogus verdicts..pertaining TO this torture and murder…of a National Asset..

      Thaju worked for the country, while YO-SHIT-A took so much from the country… starting by stealing the scholarship that was rightly someone else’s..

      I say STRIP HIS MEDALS status and everything that was showered on him… while the PROUD MOM AND DAD..WATCHED THE UNETHICAL FETEING OF THE SON..WHO DID NOT DESERVE ANYTHING….
