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.”

    Now that the elections have been done and dusted, it is time for the govt to stop pussy footing around and crack down hard on all the wrong doings of the earlier regime. The people are still waiting for punishment to these people. The victory of the UNP is with a WARNING by the people. If they do not pull their boots up and lead the country into economic development, corruption free, scandal free governance, then they would do well to remember the ICE AGE that they were kept in for all these long years without winning elections.

      I expect the new GOSL to kick this under the carpet. In due course. Given the dark history of Sri Lanka’s blood-soaked politicians & its’ corrupt law enforcement agencies, including the Judiciary. One would be utterly foolish to think otherwise.

      Should the new GOSL elect to do otherwise, I would be pleasantly surprised.

      This Can of Worms, once opened will reveal an inextricable tangle of worms. Nobody knows where it will end. Many powerful cronies and their henchmen are scared to death.

      We have no choice, but solve these ghastly crimes. One by one. And all of them. That is the only way to banish this kind of injustice and cruelty from our land forever. There are no short-cuts on that road.

      Nothing but the whole truth will bring peace to Wasim Tajudeen and his family. Not to mention the thousands of others who have met a similar, secretive, brutal death in this land.

      We must fight for all of them. No matter how long it takes. They cannot do it any longer. We must do it for them. Otherwise we risk turning into scumbags ourselves.

      Cheers!

        I agree wholeheartedly, politics in Sri Lanka is an incestuous affair and I find it unthinkable that any government will bring any of the Rajapaksas to book…………quid-pro-quo!

          Well said, this mini series was all about election. Now, it is complete, who cares about Thajudeen, he is one of many. There was an gentleman agreement between MR and RW, signed at the dawn of 9th Jan 15, which says no Rajapakses will be punished for any wrong doings even proved. complying with this agreement and judicial independence will not go hand-in-hand; this country wont see the real judicial independence. Even politicians let them alone, behaviour of most of justices are below par. Look at the chiefs: N Silva, Sriyani, Mohan….all have highly politicised and with their own prejudices one way or other.

          Interesting time ahead, UNP will not be able to do much, given it doesn’t have a clear majority on its own. MR will pull the legs at every occasion if he believes he can muster some gains by such moves. Resolving the mystery disappearances should be a high priority for UNP as voters expect nothing less than that.

          Same goes for Rajiva. Totally impractical nutcase. Of course only he is never right at all times.

          Sri Lanka needs exceptionally talented ministers in touch with reality.

The self proclaimed good man for MR regime should be running jocky down somewhere. Anyways, his dreams to return to the western soils being posted by MR regime has gone to the bin. Poor guys of Dayan kind should finally learn the basics- that is to respect humans with dignity which was the key factor MR to become a dog that hide his tail behind. Just to enjoy impunity now MR makes every effort to be a MP on the new parliament but all will reveal the gravity of high profile money frads had been done by rajapakshe brother et all during the MR regime.

My thoughts about him could be the best minister of higher education in the next parliament faded way by looking at the manner he behaved himself at the begininng of the year. not being able to be patient enough – not being able to get on with his colleagues inthe team, not being able to shut up his cesspit unnecessarily but being joined most abusive man of the match -Dayan jaathilaka attacking Ranil mostly for not valid reasons but being unable to digest the issues falling on favour of Ranil and CBK.

        After Ranil , MARA is the top most preferential

        that too, away from home !Then comes Wimal
        with over 300,000 followed by Gembanpila over
        200,000. And in Gampaha ,Prasanna grabbed the
        most over 200,000. All of them stood accused
        and some of them along with their wives had to
        face the FCID and faced courts. Wimal faced the
        top most humiliation and now, look at the

              Dear Sirimal ,

              it’s always refreshing to see your comments here Sirimal, so how are things ? i can tell you , SL is going to be a much better place than the last 10 miserable years , Mahinda the Mafia king is going to haunt the nation as he had been for the last 10 odd years , sincerely hope MY3 will do something about him this time , we have had enough of this man , at least now he will realize ,that his time is over and will call it a day .

              MY3 is planning to form a coalition government , that’s fine , but my concern is about all those undesirable characters who were bidding for Mahinda earlier , they are like poisonous snakes , waiting to bite . MY3 and Ranil need to be extremely cautious about the impending danger which Mahinda and his gang of thieves controlling .let’s hope for a Rajapaksa free Sri lanka for future .

              Take care Sirimal My friend.

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

      It 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!

      law & order will take its course under “Good governance”. So be it.

      The difference of Votes between the two Parties is just under 5%. MS/RW moves will
      be cautious, with September UN Resolution hanging – any action is all tied up with
      the culprits hand showing up in too many spheres for action. It will be recalled
      that news appeared earlier that Gota should not be arrested without the express say-so
      of a high-up? Why is that so?

      “following up Thajudeen’s death so that proper case can be established and culprits punished.”

      Read This, about another murder abduction- Eknaligoda’s disappearance .

      Investigations regarding Eknaligoda’s disappearance obstructed by top brass

      It is reported that investigations regarding the disappearance of journalist Prageeth Eknaligoda have been hampered due to the protection given by certain senior officers in the security forces to the four Army personnel who are to be arrested regarding the incident.

      According to sources the CID has informed the Army to hand over the four Army personnel. However, the senior Army officers have not responded until yesterday (19th).

      Earlier, two personnel attached to Army Intelligence and a retired Army Sergeant Major were arrested by the CID in connection with the disappearance of Eknaligoda. All details about the disappearance had been revealed when these suspect were questioned.

      The police media spokesman revealed that investigations carried out so far had revealed that Mr. Eknaligoda was abducted, taken to an Army camp at Girithale, detained and questioned for three days.

      Investigations have revealed the four Army personnel to be arrested are the main suspects of the disappearance of Mr. Eknaligoda.

      Investigations that would be carried out once the four Army personnel are arrested and questioned would definitely reveal whether journalist and cartoonist Prageeth Eknaligoda was made to disappear for personal reasons or on a directive of a strong man in the former regime, if such a strong man was involved in the disappearance who that person was and what position he is at present.

    The peaceful environment that prevailed before, during and after the GE 2015 proves that all violence during the last regime were state (Rajapakse) sponsored. We had the same Police Department and the same old IGP but they were just puppets under this Grease Yakka !

    These uneducated, dumb Rajapakses could not take on educated, civilised and real men face on. Their only response was to eliminate them !

    So, IGP illangakoon, please don’t try to take credit for the peace during the election period. Thank the Good Governance leaders for allowing you to do your job without interference and intimidation !!

    I hope proper investigations will be carried out regarding reports about IGP being an MR informant.

      PoV,

      Credit for conducting a relatively clean Gen. Election must go
      largely to the Election Commissioner Mr. Devapriya and the coming
      in of the 19th Amendment. He stood firm, fearless and faithful to
      Mother Lanka – both on January 08 and August 17. Now the other agencies of the Govt – the Judiciary, the Police, the armed forces, the Administrative machinery and all other limbs of the Govt. must go all out to regain the high standards of yester year. These were sadly destroyed by the ill-educated, rapacious and ping adi Rajapakse family – now in national disgrace.

      I will be failing in my duty if I do not pay a tribute to Colombo Telegraph for educating and keeping informed the English-educated citizenry of the country. This must have, in many ways, flowed into the Sinhala reading public as well.

      The CT opening up their generous pages to
      the exquisite critique of such fine Lankan political analysts as Tisaranee Gunasekera, Dr. Laksiri Fernando et al went out to create the necessary national consciousness against the many and uncaring excesses of the venal Rajapakse family. More than anything, this is a success for democracy against a crude form of familial dictatorship.

    The story appears flawed.

    Initially the story was that Thajudeen and a Rajapaksa was fighting for a girl. However she publicly denied even having met Thaj. Now a different story.

    Is it practical for Yoshita get into an argument with Thaj and later on the same day meet the Defense Secretary and request him to eliminate Thaj and for DS to arrange a killing squad the same night and carry out in such a manner with hardly any evidence.

    It this is at all a murder, it had happened with very sophisticated pre-planning. Certainly not on the same night.

    It appears that a person who had a previous grudge with the DS is trying to get his name involved on this matter.

      “The story appears flawed”

      Certainly it does for you , not for us !

      “Initially the story was that Thajudeen and a Rajapaksa was fighting for a girl. However she publicly denied even having met Thaj. Now a different story.”

      Apparently the row had started over the girl

      “Is it practical for Yoshita get into an argument with Thaj and later on the same day meet the Defense Secretary and request him to eliminate Thaj and for DS to arrange a killing squad the same night and carry out in such a manner with hardly any evidence.”

      Hardly any evidence ? sure , for you , there is not a single evidence against the Mafia family ,but for us , every single incident proves Mafia family’s involvement .

      “It this is at all a murder, it had happened with very sophisticated pre-planning. Certainly not on the same night.”

      Ha Ha ………..tell these to Madamuulana bayyo. as a matter of fact , Mafia Family’s murder squad was on call 24×7 , for the murder squad , it was just another contract killing !

      “It appears that a person who had a previous grudge with the DS is trying to get his name involved on this matter. “

      Only a dumb-ass would think ,it’s a previous grudge against the goon.

            You will see the result of Ruggby player s murder and the story in the days to come. Now nothing can stand on their way when they go straight foward to give justice to all those got harm by the deliberate actions taken by MR goons.

                “if you do not listen to alternative views you will NEVER get to the truth.”

                Opinion is merely opinion, based on uninformed choices.

                You could form any number of opinion at a given time. However Truth may be just one, could be bitter, face it get it over with.

                You should remember what Buddha said about Truth:

                Three things cannot be long hidden: the sun, the moon, and the truth.

                -Buddha

                You can form any number of opinions so long as the process is intent to help discover truth. In your case you strive to cover it up with Maya.

          “You can believe what you want but don’t insult others.”

          when some one deliberately tries to mislead others , one would have to use most appropriate language where he/she understand !

          “Gamarala has put forward what he thinks from what he see and hear. “

          That’s exactly what i’ve done also , i merely responded to his/her outrageous comment.

          “If you are such a smart ass tell us (the byyas) what the new evidence they have found to exhume the body and how,when and where it was found. “

          Unless you are dumb, deaf and blind every one else can see the real necessity of the hour , which is exhuming the body , from there onwards forensic scientists would be able to reveal the nature and cause of the death , surprise surprise all the Mafia king’s lackeys got panicked and started attacking everyone , strange enough Mafia king himself didn’t find anything wrong in exhuming the body , in fact he had promised to reopen the case , question is why his Bath balayos get agitated ?

        asking whether road accidents are not common in Australia ? ! Also it may be
        necessary to re-open the late Sripathy Sooriarartchi road accident when two were killed – the Police who investigated this matter must be checked for his Status now. Sripathi had evidence of the bribe to LTTE etc etc..

      @Gamarala

      You name says it all. You are a REAL gamarala type of fellow. About your question ” …….is it practical”, of course it is. Dont forget that nobody ever saw the White Vans but hundreds were abducted in broad daylight and taken away in these vans to meet their known fate – certain death. For months, several minority community women were terrorised by the rapist Grease Yakkos yet nobody even knew who they were, let alone being able to catch them. Lasantha was shot in broad daylight but even MahaJaraa and his goon brother BayaGota confessed they didnt know who the killers were. Ekneligoda disappeared overnight and they maintained he was seen gallivanting somewhere in Europe. The impossible was possible with the sheer power and brute force they exercised. So, why do you think it was impossible for YoShitter to contact BayaGota and arrange for the immediate destruction of Wasim? After all, wasnt he a nephew who had been wronged. Wronged twice – once by losing his woman-of-the-hour and the next, by having to face a mere rugger player who had insulted the pride of the Great Princeling by ending up in an argument with him in front of so many rugger players. And mind you, the powerful uncle was not simply the Defence Secretary of the country. He was also the father of the Grease Yakkos. He, with his MajaJaraa brother could make wonders work in their favour. Nothing stood in their way. Thank God you gave us My3 when we thought that you had indeed forgotten us and all was lost.

        YoShitter,

        No wonder your name is Shitter. This is the classic mentality of the Colombo elite – typical zombies. They sit around a table in a Colombo Club and defame people on mere hearsay without any evidence.

        The story above is a FAIRY-TALE. It does not substantiate its claims with an iota of evidence. Further my point was the facts do not add up.

        While I am not a great admirer of Rajapaksas (specially their actions during the last four years) I am a great believer in FAIR-PLAY. If this incident is correct he/she should have corroborated (backed up) it with facts.

        Specially at a time when Rajapaksa’s have lost to defame them with unsubstantiated allegations is pathetic. People who support such action are also getting down to the level of Rajapaksas of the last three years.

    So the the story is Gota did the job at the request of Yoshitha that night itself.
    But as Gota had no vehicles he borrowed the vehicle of the First Lady( his brothers’s wife) with number plates and traceable to her for the job. Having tortured and killed Thaujdeen they staged an accident in the car that belonged to young Thajudeen down Park Road. This is very interesting….

      No. It was Thajudeen who tortured himself and then got in to the vehicle and hit on a pole and set it on fire. Thus, it is not a homicide, it is a suicide. Clearly, Yositha and his gang had nothing to do with this.

    It was under the PTA that most unlawful killings were done, of citizens of the north and south.
    It encouraged the birth of ‘death squads’.
    Gotabaya R as Defence Secretary, apparently controlled them, as the enforcer of the PTA.
    This is just one of many hundreds of illegal arrests and murders.
    Now that the LTTE is dead and buried, and there is no need for this PTA.

    The new Ranil/Maithri government must remove the PTA to become a truly democratic & national government.
    If not, other kinds of unofficial ‘death squads’ may well be born.

    Its not just Thajudeen.

    Soon after the war, over 40,000 un-armed people were arrested by Mahinda Government and their status should be revealed.

    it seems most of them were too killed by the Gota’s team and present government should reveal this. This is nothing to do with war. As the war ended the citizen in between were taken to the custody of the government. Killing citizens by Government is not less crime as of the killings conducted by terrorists.

    We can not whip off the history in the name of collateral damage for such mass scale clime.

    The girl’s name and personal remarks of her character must be kept out. This is the lot of girls in this sexists’ society.It seems the Minister of Finance recruited 5000 youths from Kotahena, Mattakkuliya, Wattala and that coast line to spread false rumors against the Rajapakses and the politicians who worked close to them.

    Until proved we cannot say anything as real.W/O Def. Sec’s involvement also that can happen. I doubt very much that that known van was used for the abduction as it is revealed and the body is exhumed just before the election…and so on.Why did they do it now ? 8 months had elapsed since the defeat of MR.

    The best witnesses are who saw the abduction, who wrote down the identity marks etc of the vehicle, some knowledgeable advisers(Criminals) who are now in prison. Its possible that he was Kidnapped (not abducted) and killed and the accident seen was created. Probably it was known that he was going to the airport, and he was confronted at the place where the wallet was found. Its possible that the wallet was planted by an anonymous sympathiser of Thaj’ or even by a silent culprit who wanted to create a confusion and the like. The IRCs in the prisons know these things well as they have planned murders, and their suggestions take us in different directions in a successful investigation.

    Just look at that picture. He has the stern look of a Mafia Boss. He is angry. It is late in the night and he still hasn’t heard from his death squad whether the ‘job’ they were order to finish was accomplished.

    Throughout the tenure of the corrupt Rajapakses, the entire family and relatives abused the properties of the private entities, reminiscent of the Mafia in America in the 30’s. They owe Rs.3/4 Billion to SriLankan Airways and God Knows how much to the Telephone companies and the petroleum companies. This Thajudeen case has also unearthed the misuse of a vehicle donated to Sri Lankan Red Cross and Siriliya Saviya Foundation. I won’t be surprised if the latter was a front for their money laundering operations. Our new government should bite the bullet and leave no stone unturned in the investigation of all the tentacles just like America did to eliminate the Mafia off their land.

    Gotabaya has a lot of blood on his hands. When he was questioned by BBC’s Sackur on Lasantha’s murder, this murderer dismissed it as a non-issue. When the hunter becomes the hunted, and the tables are turned, the beginning of the end-game will have already started to haunt him.

    Armed forces or LTTE MEMBERS are killed in combat and therefore no investigations. No civilian are killed deliberately during the war with terrorist. If any civilian death. it is as a result of “Human Shield” by the LTTE Terrorist and so called freedom fighters to some.

    Besides, there are no Political Prisoners in Sri Lanka which is confirmed by Yahapalanaya as well.

    Other than the above, all the others murders must be investigated and wrongdoers if any must be punished that definitely includes Batalanda as it is already linked to Ranil by a commission appointed for the purpose.
