Government Snubs Gota’s Request Over Security Detail

The government said today it will go ahead with replacing military personnel with police personnel for former Defence Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa, despite his request not to change his security detail.

Gota

Rajapaksa, is reported to have said that military security was necessary because there was still threats to his life. However, Defence Secretary Karunasena Hettiarachchi said that Rajapaksa’s military security will be replaced with police and STF, and his military security will be withdrawn.

The government also announced earlier that the military security provided for former President Mahinda Rajapaksa will also be removed and replaced with police and STF.

The decision to replace all VIP security with police instead of military was taken by the Security Council. The government claimed that the security detail of the President and Prime Minister comprised only of police and not of military personnel.

    Why does this character need any security.

    I thought that the Buddhist monks who were bragging that they were going to do it and whatever happened to this proposal.

      Gota must ask for security from Genanasara Brigade and not from the government.

      Gnanasara’s black gowned task force can protect him and even give him some training in Karate and Judo.

      Gota should be in the prison enjoying all the security of the state. If he wants he can ask for international justice to serve in a secure cell in a Banana Republic.

        Gota, the white van man who should have been arrested and tried for assassinating and “disappearing” people, and assaults against journalists like Lasantha and like Fredrika Janze Has got the STUPID Yahalapanalaya govt. of Ranil-Sira providing him VIP security!

        BLACK IS WHITE and WHITE is BLACK in the Miracle of Modayas!

        Gota is using fake threats to get the law enforcement machinery which should really lock him up, especially for FINANCIAL CRIMES at the so called Battaramulla Military HQ building – to protect him!

          Chain drive the white vans he used for the kidnaps, murders and disappearances. Put a big poster of Gota in front of the first vehicle and parade throughout Sri Lanka. In that Gota should be chained and pulled from the tail end of the vehicles with his worshipers allowed to break coconuts throughout the journey.

          Wimal Modawanse must be accorded to fast unto death in an open truck whilst his Manike is given some dosh to enjoy the best in a beauty parlour.

          Gota’s brother Mahinda must follow the parade with the rabid Gnanasara Thero with Gnanasara enjoying the privilege of disrobing in public to release his hate and anger. Coconut shell is enough to cover his private parts with the round of mastic tape.

          Then there is some role for our Dinesh Goon-wardene too. He should be stripped naked in public and paraded with Gnanasara.

          Curses must be removed by counter curses.

          God bless Sri Lanka.

            But almost everyone of these metioned personalities are said to be strong buddhists… That is all paradoxal view. The kind of devious and high tactful mensuch as Mahinda Rajaakshe should be excluded from Buddhism. Thepicture he passes is beyond all devious and malicious agendas.

        Yeah ! Throw him in jail. He could be well protected in a 6×3 cell with no windows and in solitary confinement.
        Only give him a calculator to keep himself occupied counting the billions that he has stolen but of no use to him then.
        He is No Hero. What he and his brother did to SF will come around and that is for sure.
        “Karma” will come back.

      To provide best security for Gota is to put him in prison where there will be 24 hour survelence, and devoid of any LTTE threat.

      former Defence Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa,

      Rajapakshes should have weakened lanken media instituations being close to them during the previous regime. That is the reason why we cant read unbiased information even today. Most that took lead under Rajaakshes are still leading lanken tabloids.

      I have no doubt Arjuna s issues too was painted by them so that almost everyoone woudl read wrongful info about him. Reality of his person shold be clean. I still believe this. … truth will surface sooner than later.

    Why should Gota be above the law ?

    Give us constructive arguments to see it otherway around please.

      Best woudl be to put the guy in a ZOO cage so that people can make use of the funds being wasted to protect. They get everything even today- but to complain further should NOT be accepatable. Instead should be peaceful with both ends shut. Thse funds can be made useful to the masses that are really in need or ask the guy to leave here for the States and continue his IT or petrol shed work. Then the burden is gone. He could better see forward as a US citizen… until the charges against him will get levelled by them.

    This [Edited out] while in power, went after anything that even slightly was a threat against him. He abused his position as defense secretary and used those powers to the maximum to murder, harass, instigate and abuse all. Now this coward is worried and looking for high levels of protection for the sheer sins he committed.

    This man is just another individual with a dual nationality. If he is afraid to live in Ceylon, he can go back to the US where he applied for asylum when things were not so rosy for the Jarapassas’.

      Particular man was once a refugee in the states. Later became passport holder. However, the sad truth is the man who sacrificed his entire life having served for the country facing bombs 3 times.. luckily escaped for his fate -he is General Fonseka. He never left the country searching for greener pastures. But people respect more to Gotabaya than dedicated man Sarath fonseka. Here you guys should see it right – it is the lanken press made it – zero out of a hero. Nothing else. How could a guy being out of the country well informed about the ground targets to shoot focusly.. That is what SF repeated thousand times -but grass eating men of the island nation would never get it easily. They are brainwashed…. I am the Defence secretary who won the war bla bla…

      I think in Srilanka and for srilankens untruths can become truths, if media men would have worked for it on and on…

      The very same manner. Duminda Silva s accident which he met with a fatal head injury – this was telecasted by lanken media calling it should be a world wonder.. but the guy was just kept away by govt itself, not to allow him being charged. That was the TRUTH of the story…. Lanken media men should be accoutable for all the stealthy information PASSED to the nation.

      Please authorities, you have all the rights to investigate the health injury of Duminda SIlva.. since that will reveal you more about the high profile abuses of Rajaakshes… that is certain.

    The best security for Gota would be a cell at Welikada (preferably in solitary confinement).

      “The best security for Gota would be a cell at Welikada (preferably in solitary confinement).”

      Are you planning to send in the STF?

      Come on don’t do it.

    There can be no threat from the LTTE because the Rajapakses bribed them to be partners with them. On the other hand, if he fears sizeable sections of the armed services he alienated during the time he was the all-powerful Defence Secy, then it is a different matter.

      Well said.

      Ask him what security he gave the “war heroes” under his watch. If anyone opposed them the first thing the Rajapakse brothers did was withdraw their security.

      Gota gave excellent security to Janaka Perera, a true hero who always led the troops from the front unlike Gota who was acting the hero inside the safety of an air-coned room.

      SL journalists are so scared of these filth; never ask the tough questions.

    Has anyone paused for a moment to think about VIP security and how it was
    done in the past. Gota the Baya Gulla, the country’s worse coward who re-wrote
    history making him the unchallenged hero, is the one who stopped military security. Instead he gave Police security to others. There were exceptions where there were Army like for Basil men were posted in Los Angeles. For Our disgraced Field Marshal Ponseka, Army guards were posted in Oklahoma.Who looked after Gota’s house in LA? Ha Haa!! That is also the Army. That pin adi captain gota is the one who now wants to be protected from the people. He can open his fould mouth only because this govt has given him an opportunity.

    Just two years ago he was GOTA almighty, now he is begging for his security…

    He ran away to the US with his tail between the legs when the war was on its peak. Returned to SL when his brother became the president to rob the country in the name of war. Since then nonstop commission from military deals, free one way white van rides for specially selected personnel, killed almost everybody who went against him, wasted billions over name of city beautification, grabbed all the valuable lands around the island using proxies, his close associates brought tons of heroin to the country and his involvement in endless illegitimate activities. The new government should investigate all these crimes and necessary punishments should be applied without further delay.

    Oh…… the worm has turned :D lol LOL lol
    Bloody cowards. Committed mass scale atrocities against there own people, political dissidents, journalists, anyone who spoke against them while in power and now they have the balls to cry foul. Throw the lot of them in the Dehiwela Zoo. Last I checked that place of appalling condition would be perfect to house the lot, including certain flip floppers of the present government.

    Why is the Government dilly dallying with this decision for so long just like everything else. They must get on and do what need to be done without anymore procrastination. If it was MR by that very night job would have been done.
    The security detail would have been replaced overnight with Police men.

    “”The government claimed that the security detail of the President and Prime Minister comprised only of police and not of military personnel.””

    This government won’t last long after 2017 when kerry/hussain are made to go home.
    In a way it would be the best thing to happen to lanka.

    Only Gotabaya as president can revive this country like LKY.

      Looks like there is a conspiracy by Gotabaya’s baiyas to topple the legally elected government and make Gota the president. It is a very good move by the government to remove all the armed forces from his security and replace them with the police. Otherwise, with the support from his few loyal armed forces Gota can even plan a coup.

    why cant all these men be silent and see their retirement ?

    Those leaders in other countries, let the successors to rule the country, if only invited or asked former presidents, PMs or Ministers join the on going process. But in lanken soil filled with most abusive leaders such as Mahinda Rajaakshe is seen to have problem to relinquish the power greediness:

    Baya Gota should have been in Jail by now. RW AND MS having underhand deals with the Jarapaksas. The fellow is talking about being the Deveni nayakaya nad palamuveni nayakaya. Throw the scoundrel for life at the welikada remand prison. We all know how he treated SF.

    What is his problem with STF? Special Task Force was trained by Israeli and British SAS special forces in many things including specialization in VVIP security. In fact army commandos were sent to the STF for courses on VIP security when they too started this job so there is absolutely no reason is fearing STF security. It is the enemy that must fear STF. If the STF was not good enough for Gota the white vanner, it is his own undoing and bringing down STF standards while he raised the bar on even home guards into CDF! So Gota you being served off of your spoon, enjoy it you bloody goat!
