Gota’s Museum Case To Proceed With Effect From Tomorrow: CA Dismisses Gota’s Applications

The Court of Appeal today dismissed the writ and revision applications filed by Gotabaya Rajapaka challenging D A Rajapaksa museum trial being taken up before the Special high courts. In effect, the CA verdict has now paved way for the D A Rajapaksa museum trial to begin tomorrow.

Gota

The aspiring Presidential nominee has been accused of misappropriating state funds worth Rs. 34 million to construct the commemorative museum in Weeraketiya, Hambanthota as a tribute to his late parents. He, along with six other defendants were charged by the Attorney General under Section 5(1) of the Public Property Act and Section 388 of the Penal Code, the Prevention of Money Laundering Act and the Public Property Act.

When the case was listed to be taken up before the Special High Court, which began its trials in July last year, Gotabaya’s legal team filed writ and revision applications citing the Special High Court lacks jurisdiction to hear the case.

The three judge bench of the Special High Court includes justices Sampath Abeykoon (President), Sampath Wijeratne and Champa Janaki Rajaratna.

    This is a joke
    Gotabaya never will be brought to true justice and incarcerated in prison by Sirisena or Ranil.

    This is a big joke.

      Gotapaya qualified for immunity in the Buddhist Sinhala Country irrespective of whether he murdered number of journalists or human rights activist or ordered to massacre its own citizens. He is a Buddhist Sinhala Fundamentalist. Every Sinhala Buddhist is qualified for this immunity.

        Really?
        “He is a Buddhist Sinhala Fundamentalist. Every Sinhala Buddhist is qualified for this immunity.”

    If Gota were either a tough guy or a man with a clear conscience he would have taken the bull by the horns at the first instance instead of engaging in evasive maneuvers. The court has finally put a stop to this, as happens eventually to most defendants who resort to delaying tactics to postpone the day of reckoning.

    Black Coat Brigade is using all dirty tactics to drag the cases as long as possible until Rajapaksha comes to the power.

      My dear Lapatiya,
      ” until Rajapaksha comes to the power.”
      That will be after the ‘Maitree Buddha’ if they have accumulated enough ‘Kusala Karma’ by that time.
      In the meantime try and get yourself out of this ‘samsara’ by becoming a ‘Morapu’ eka.

    “All states of being are determined by mind.
    It is mind that leads the way,
    just as the wheel of the oxcart follows the hoof print of the animal that draws it,
    so suffering will surely follow when we SPEAK or ACT impulsively’
    from an impure state of mind” ~ Dammapada verse 02;
    Suwapath Weva.

    Can the “Special Courts” finish this case within two weeks? What is to be considered, in my opinion, is only to see the records and verify that the money was withdrawn from the “PUBLIC FUNDS” of the RDA. If that has been done, the accused will be found guilty. A further proof that would establish the “Unlawful” withdrawal of “Public Funds” is the “Repayment” of such funds by the accused. Let the “Black Coat Mafia” say anything; but the PEOPLES’ COMMON SENSE must be maintained.

      GoRa has blood of many innocent men all over his body but, the SLFP group headed by MY 3 who was in the Gvt until Oct 26, 2018 did everything possible to keep the witnesses from testifying and thereby letting him go free. However, unless his side of justifications for those crimes are still as strong as at the time when the crimes were committed, his own personal feeling of guilt will punish him every time those events come to his mind. Then again, I doubt whether Hitler ever regretted for the carnage that went on by his wish! According to Mahavamsa, when king Dutugamunu began to regret for many loss of lives during the war, some Buddhist monks have tried to console him by saying “only one & half lives” (two monks, one attained Nibbana and another only half was there) lost in the whole war! I’m certain that both Cardinal & some Buddhist prelates are ready to say something similar if a need arises someday. Killers always can find their own justifications for killing!

    Old Brother Prince is seriously sick. He is about to be admitted in Singapore immediately.
    God may save all these useful people from their physical sickness. Krishna may need all of their hands when he wants to clean the earth again.

      Really Mally ??? Is Chamal seriously ill? OMG.

      Now that Dr Ranil and that Bird Thalatha are about to finish off Nandasean with the help of the Yahapalana , HC. It will be a cake walk for the UNP. SLMC,Bathudeen, Assath Sally, Hezbulla Party and Methodists Party Common Candidate at the Presidential Election on Dec 7..

      Dr Ranil has already gagged the Keslwatta Kid and even his Uncle Karu from talking about the UNP Candidate..
      How Serious.
      Dr Ranil must have a real super duper one already groomed to present at an auspicious time .

      Do you know what your mates Sampathar and Abraham are up to nowadays. besides the latter helping Dr Jayampathy to bowl full tosses to Hezbulla and Assath Sally?.

        Sumane,
        I did not mention about Elder brother Prince. As Old Brother Prince would be taking about two weeks in Singapore for his operation, Elder Brother Prince has promised to give his word to reporters in two weeks’ time, about his candidacy. Anyway, just like all other Chitanta, Yahapalanaya tenders, it can be withdrawn like SWRD-SJV pact. Younger Old Brother Prince said Old King has already selected Old Brother Prince to stand for EP, but as him has better prospects to cancel the US citizenship, he is the Old King’s confirmed candidate. Old King said that still the Slap Party has not selected its partners for Chitanta government then, how Younger Old Brother Prince has appointed their candidate. Communist Pakayas are worried the wedding time is so close, and then how come the bride has not picked up a groom. (Brother Princes are three, Elder Brother Prince, (Old) Brother Prince, and Younger (Old) Brother Prince. There is no need to use Old with Elder Brother Prince as there is not parallel in the New Royal family and it doesn’t confuse with others- One Old Son Prince and Once New Son Prince on Daughter Princes. There is no New Queen -though you can use it- and one Old Beauty Queen)

        Vellala Sampanthar is waiting for Modi’s Visa to fly to Delhi. There are problems Ambassador Tharanjit Singh has told that there is only one vacancy in the Visa register, i.e. on the day Secretary Pompeo coming. So Sumanthiran told to Sampanthar that he can either eat the cake or just can have it. Sampanthar decided not to go to India. He was told by Mr. Modi to go to Cancun vacation and watch the bird and tell that story. In last visit Mr. Modi asked Sampanthar about it, but he was talking about Secret Solution. Mr. Modi got angry; jumped at Sampanthar, you told me about that last time too, but I asked about your Cancun Vacation.
        Sampanthar didn’t open his mouth because he didn’t go there yet. Sampanthar these days bored with Sri Lankan Samba, so he wants to go to Argentina Carnival and have taste of Brazilian Samba. For The Carnival it is one month more; so it is still off season for Brazilian Samba. So Sampanthar these days is visiting Poson Thansalas for Sri Lankan Samba.

        Anyway, to come to Dr. Ranil, I didn’t’ know his birds too do fly fixed 747 Jumbo Jet Turbo Bypass engines. Krishna sits on the top of his bird and fly. How Dr. Ranil does flies? You have seen him flying?

    Saman – “Gotabaya never will be brought to true justice and incarcerated in prison by Sirisena or Ranil.” According to the MOU (January 2015) between Medamulana Meeharaka Percy Mahendra Rajafucksha and Ranilpaksha, Alibaba and all his thieves will never be brought to face justice. This is a fact and not a joke!

    My Grand Mother always says “Anunta kala de thamunta pala dei”, Gota will also have to face the same. He murdered so many and used white vans to abduct civilians and media staff. Its time to bring him back to SL, even if he is in his death bed. What has Mahinda who was crying about the former Governor of the CB got to say about his brother running away to Singapore, as if there are no qualified doctors in SL. Its the drama of Maithripala Sirisena who as the Minister of Law and Order allowed Gota to leave the country knowing well that his case was coming up. Similarly he has given permission to Gnansara Thero to leave to Japan for one year knowing very well his other cases are to be heard in the courts. May be its time to buy a one way ticket to the Minister of Law and Order Maithripala Sirisena.

    Just wondering whether Gota ever had a peaceful night sleep from the time he became the most powerful man in Sri-Lanka. With the memory of the innocent people being murdered, with his consent, how can one have a peaceful sleep? Even if MR comes to power and dismisses his cases, he can’t dismiss Gota’s mind and memory. It will haunt him, even though he does not show it, until he is buried under ground. Do not think that he will die just like that, but will suffer immensely before leaving the body with many cursing him. It is not only Gota, but many of our present day politicians. This is called karma. It is very unfortunate that these politicians think that they could live forever, with whatever they have pilfered and done to the country.

    I am sure now our Cardinal Ranjith will appear to defend Gotta. All these guys must be kept in the museum. They are very unique.
