Government To Confiscate Houses, Office Owned By Basil Rajapaksa, And CSN Building

The Government has decided to confiscate several houses and an office belonging to former minister Basil Rajapaksa, as there is no proper legal documentation to prove the ownership of these houses.

Accordingly, at least two houses, believed to be owned by Rajapaksa in Malwana, and Matara, along with his office in Gampaha will be confiscated by the Government.

Sources said that the house in Matara is under Rajapaksa’s wife, Pushpa’s sister’s name. However, during a series of inquiries by the FCID, Pushpa Rajapaksa’s sister had denied any knowledge as to how her brother in law acquired the land and build houses on the land. A Rajapaksa brother in law, Lalith Chandradasa and architect Muditha Jayakody had also shared similar sentiments with the FCID during an inquiry.

“They told the FCID that they did not know from where Basil Rajapaksa got the money to purchase the land and build the houses,” sources said.

Meanwhile, the D. A. Rajapaksa Foundation Building located in Battaramulla (the building houses the Carlton Sports Network – CSN), constructed at a cost of Rs. 200 million, is also expected to be confiscated by the Government.

According to sources, there is no owner for these houses, and offices, hence they are considered ‘Bona vacantia.’ The Government has sought the Attorney General’s advice on the matter on the possibility of confiscating the houses and offices, as the legal process against Basil Rajapaksa is expected to take around 10 to 15 years.

    This will help people to heal their wounds.

    This man Basil is the problem of the day. Being soft to him can destroy everything. All folks should get together to see it real LET ALONE today.

    The culture he has been sowaing in the country is beyond all bearing.

    Drugs, crimes and everything are mixed in his thoughts. By hook or crook, to take the power back.

      Sir,

      How about confiscating this despicable’s thief’s vital parts? Then put them on public display.

      As a preventive measure against future political criminals, who might contemplate stealing. Shamelessly, from an utterly impoverished & debt ridden nation such as ours.

      Cheers!

        State is debted to billions – so why not take even all the properties which the authorities feel have been deceived by said Rajaakshes not in a legal manner. This can then become an another way how debted nations could pay their loans back to those foreign partners.
        Be it today or or later, we have to come to this – it is widely believed that a larger number of vehicles that had been used during the MR regime have gone missing. The reason is there had been no KEPT records in books about the details of those vehicles. It is sad but truth tracing the bits about each vehicle listed varioius ministries has become a very difficult problem to this date. This was the reason the cabinet toeven talk about purchase of new vehicles filling the gaps. Anyways, the latter has been abused by so called JOINT HATRED THUGS led by former president – rather they have to leave answers where the vehicles have been. I believe, there the many of them can easily be punished putting them in jails.
        In germany even stealing a ball point pen can cost hiim life. IN our countries they do high stealings on broad day light should be stopped at least today.

          Before the Ranil-sira corrupt Govt confiscates property from the corrupt moron Basil Jarapassa, he must be tried for stealing and put behind bars!

          Is there absolutely NO JUSTICE system or DUE PROCESS in the Miracle of Modayas?!

          Justice delayed is justice denied to the people of Sri Lanka.

          Who has decided that Basil’s cases will take 10 to 15 years? Ranil and Sira? and their Ayahapalanaya cabinet of corrupt clowns?!

          There needs to be a special courts to fast track trials of financial criminals like Basil and Arjuna Mhendran.

          Impunity and Immunity for FINANCIAL CRIME which is massive in Sri Lanka and was for a long time masked by the war, must end.

          The stolen funds are URGENTLY needed to pay off the massive National Debt built up by the Jarapassa family. Today as the cases are coming up Jarapassa has again unleashed BBS to DISTRACT and DIVIDE and try to get back to power with support of help from moda masses.

        Lanken Media men should work together with rulers so that those grass eating folks who arethe majority in this country turning them a vigilent folk. More people are fed with facts of the day, the danger they face will become lesser. Basil and those men were like abusers from day 1. But people were fed with wrongful deficient information abou tthem. Poor folks that struggle for their 3 meals will not have time to think enough in the process of choosing their politicians. FOr them those who offer them bon bons are the lovely ones.

        Are they valuable assets? If they are, why doesn’t the government sell them to Chinese art collectors. You can sell anything to the filthy rich Chinese.

          Why are you being so sensitive about Basil’s “you know what”?

          Have you just returned from a cruise with our PM, Sagala, Malik, Mangala, et al.?

          Did you discover a whole new world?

            “Why are you being so sensitive about Basil’s “you know what”?”

            I am only trying to be nice to you. Your anger should not blind you nor should it determine justice.

            “Have you just returned from a cruise with our PM, Sagala, Malik, Mangala, et al.?”

            I am not prepared to carry their b***s hence I am not invited to join their free leisure trips. By the way I am not part of their extended family either.

            “Did you discover a whole new world? “

            I am where I am, I am who I am, I have no desire nor compulsion to change my position on corruption, nepotism, war crimes, crime against humanity, human rights, peace, secularism, democracy, reconciliation, right and wrong …. on the clan.

            I need a favour from you, If you have any contacts at NDTV could you ask the Anchors to shut up while they interview their guests and chair panel discussion and stop cross talks and unnecessary intervention by the panel.

            Thanks.

      This can be the beginning to show them, all those properties could be taken by the state if they have bought them by various names to keep their grabbed funds still belong to them in that way.

      These actions should go beyond the seas too, so called properties in the USA should also be studied closely. Every cts alleged to have frauded by the Rajakashes should be brought back to the states in order to help the poor of the poor. Latter should also be made clear to stupid folks since they should also be made accountable for stay loyal to those big horas even today.
      Rajaakshes will have to be punished, for all the high crimes deliberately carried out for own folks – this is the just the begining.

      If we hugely debted nation to pay those sums back, there should be means to solve them along the years

      1) As we know the lanken entire state income is believe dot be much less than their expenditure per year

      2) oNLY WAY out to pay those sums back to put the burden on the public by taxing them further or taking even more loans

      3) It is believed the sums deliberatey grabbed by Rajaakshe et al is estimated to be over 18 Billions

      4) If the state could find those 18 Billions among all the Rajaakshes including their kith and kin – not forgetting that stupid lanken embassador ( funny figure) Jaliya Wickramsooriya or other men even we are not known here shold be subejected to focus and that then will be a greater relief … no doubt

      5) New laws should be imposed against repeating the kind of frauds in this country- that can then secure the lives of future politicians

      Let Basil to form a new party in the prison. He is uttering nonsence these days thinkin that his will be pardoned by the current regime. Even if the delay is seen by the focus of proper investigations, now or later investigations will come putting the man in jail for rest of his life. That is no means political revenges but punishement against the MULTIPLE HIGH LEVEL BILLION GRABs.

      Please sane folks, work hard to corner this bugger for all the high profile abuses he is alleged to have done by deceiving our poor folks who are their number one target when achieve their abusive agendas. You guys know how the bugger et al got 18 AMD passed sending former Dr SB home.

      What I cant understand is these politicians are no new comers. Why cant they produce information about the ownerships of the mentioned properties? Can well be these men dont take it serious and FCID or other questioning bodies from their behaviours see that they too are not serious enough. May be we need ULTRA POWERFUL FCID to collect the facts about all abuses in an efficient manner. It is just the move of current bodies are either too slow or they have no resources enough. They should better appoint higher senior officers that are believed to have senior profiles in the areas of requirements. In Europe, things could work within few weeks, why that should stay this long in SRILANKA even if european laws are the basics of lanken laws ? New mechanisms should get passed within weeks to complete these investigations. I dont believe that a process could take longer than 3 to 4 years today with all the new methods of the day being taken to use.

        The problem for Namal Rajapakse is, if he proves ownership, it begs the question where he got the money from. I cannot understand why the legal process should take 10-15 years. In a similar case in Kerala, South India, Chief Minister Jayalalitha was convicted and jailed within months.

      Okay, if these relatives prove that they have no idea about the money landed to former Minister, there we have the point – that we need to trace the man s pockets from the day he got his appointemnt…. why cant lanken laws corner him in that manner.. this has become a joke to me.. while living in Germany… in germany every cent is being recorded us being normal profesisonals. So about Ministers laws are very strict too.. why cant our law makers bring the laws learing it from the west.

      Any wrongs views of the west is being criticised by any oppositions, but their good laws keeping away from study. Why ? I think ours are a folks they just talk only… do nothing. We dont need that many ministers or MPs if any 20 good would do the job correctly. JVPres just attack only. Some UNPers do the same. Only young blood lke Dr. Harsha De Silva and Ranjana seem to be doing risking everything. Ajith PERERA is also somewhat silent today than had been before. Mr. Premadasa has been doing the best as always… all in all, I feel paradigm change should be introduced to all bodies if we ever to achieve the goals.

      This move is MS/RW attempt to silence Basil as he jumped the gun in splitting
      the SLFP. Cases on Rajapakse members were put on slow motion as a deal? Now what follows will be Politicians lining up to acquire these properties on some pretext; when they should be sold after Valuation and the Treasury credited with the proceeds for the benefit of the State.

      NOT ONLY HIS ! But those close to him, especially his relations who acquired assets by illegal means should be brought to book, and every asset should be taken back.
      The FCID / CID should check who was running Basil’s operations at Gampaha as the front man at the SLFP headquarters he built there. The one who was running the show at Gampaha was the husband of his cousin, and this person has bought houses in Australia and at the Victoria Range, Digana.
      This is all monies of the people of Sri Lanka and has to be taken back.
      Corruption ran in the Rajapakse family bloodline and now the patriarch is shamelessly claiming that he did not steal even a dollar.
      When the “throat cutting” starts, there is not ONE, but MANY around, which would need very sharp knifes indeed.

    Mr 30% as he was nicknamed must have got the money from companies that he gave licences to set businesses. His elder brother also changed the limit on exchanges to convert the money from his unlawful dealings to US$ and thereby bank corrupt the country. The youngest brother also benefitted from such dealings but the military may protect him from arrests and lawsuits.

      You are wrong.

      His wife had a small poultry farm behind her house where she had 50 chickens. She collected eggs every day for the past 40 years sold them to local shops. In addition, she also had two cows. She sold milk almost every day to the local restaurant. She grew vegetable in the compound and sold them at the local market.

      In her spare time, she sewed women clothes and sold the lot to foreign buyers. In between, she bought fresh fish from fishermen made few rupees from house to house delivery.

      She went around the neighbourhood and help the nonas wash their dishes and clothes. She earned a few loose changes here and there.

      If you add up all these income, earned over a long period of time don’t you think she would have had enough savings to buy all those expensive properties?

      Please stop speaking ill of hard working people.

    Why should it takes such a long time-10-15 years, to prosecute a known finance swindler who was popularly known as 10% in ministerial circle? By that time another regime from Rajapakse clan might take over the reigns of government through communal violence that was seen ever before. Fraudsters like Basil Rajapakse will go scot-free.

      Lankens lawyers and the related proffessionals should be ashamed to have stayed like clay fed crocodiles so far not sharing their real contributions. We perfectly know from what our people that lanken lawyers in general are parasites by their functions – but there should be at least few percentage of lawyers that are anti corrupt and be loyal to own folks. My kind request to them is please rise your voice as louder as you can to send the message across the nation that all the stealings openly being carried out by Rajakashes and their kith and kin brought this nation to visibly hard up situation.

      As one who settled on the west, you – Thisu should be very clear let alone today, how efficent UK professionals in general have been. Uni professionals to other professionals how their contributions have been. As an another folk that are seen to imitate the English not other europeans regardless of whatever – lankens should finally learn to perform their duties with certain efficiency as get to see sofar. Today the technology has made almost every worker easier should be utilized by those court processes speeding them. Telling evasively past cases have taken 10 to 15 years should be stopped… that can no means be excuses today…
      That way we can see these HORAS being caught by horns. Else, they are clever to fool the very same poor folks and abuse them further allow their return to power. What have not Rajakashes done to keep those grass eaters their voters ? As no other they distributed valuable goods to grab their mindsets…… whose monies they had been ?

      We perfectly know that grassing eating folks are the majority of voters to Rajaakshes when studying their votes obtained to last two elections. Even today, I hear the sentence ” ane balanda me aya Mahinda Mahaththayata koran jathi – how sad to see former president has been treated by the rulers etc “.

    Basil seems to be the weak link in all the Rajapaksas as far as Yahapalana concerened?.

    He seems to have made even his kith and kin puzzled with the way he bought all these properties. I think Basil and Pushpa must be holding a view on their own that politic is all about doing legitimate business in the open and making money, nothing about serving the electorate. Maybe, thought they were doing a “strike while the iron is hot”, but all changed in a matter of months.

    All politicians in Sri Lanka by law have to declare their assets and liabilities.

    “The Declaration of Assets and Liabilities in Sri Lanka states that: it is a “law to compel certain specified types of persons to make periodic declarations of their assets and liabilities in and outside of Sri Lanka.” The provision of this law applies to members of parliament, judges, public officials, chairman, directors and other officers as specified by the regulations stated in the declaration.”

    Go as back as possible and check the declaration: The politician has to prove how he accumulated anything that is not on the declaration and if is not possible to explain to the satisfaction of the state, confiscate the asset and charge the politician for fraud. This should not be limited to the Rajapaksa’s. Cleane house if you want the public to believe that your have the will to create a just society.

    Let’s look in perspective…

    Tamils got arms from India and turned against Sinhalese. But India got freedom through non-violence. The West brought slaves to the US in 1526. The slaves’ arms and legs were chained. Imagine those slaves’ daily life, Tamils didn’t face this much discrimination. In 1863 the slave trade act was abolished. In 1963 African Americans got equal rights, but not voting rights. Finally, they got voting rights in 1965. Tamils chosen the foreign advice and took the wrong path. Unfortunately, finishing any war will cost lives. Tamils must accept this reality.

    Secondly, don’t judge the Rajapaksas by joining with the forces who rob the world. Don’t you know how many centuries the West robbed South Asia and the rest of the world? They still rob others’ resources. Don’t you know what happened in Iraq? Americans, Australians, Canadians and Kiwis don’t even live in their own country, they took others’ homelands on genocide.

    Thirdly, the Rajapaksas put their lives in danger while the LTTE was in power. Therefore, they deserve financial incentives. Therefore, I am OK if they have rewarded themselves in financially. Madam CBK bought a house in London, where do you think she got the money? The West doesn’t talk about her corrupt deals, because she with the West.

    Fourthly, don’t judge the Rajapaksas by joining with the forces who kill in millions. The British killed in millions to takeover North America and Australasia. During the 2nd world war the British sent India’s food to the Europe, especially for the forces who fought against Nazi Germans. Due to this 3 million Indians died by starvation. Plus, if you add the people who have died in Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan that would be more than million. However, no one was accountable for those deliberate killing in millions

        How bad Basil is compare with the LTTE’s Gold & money collection around the world, bank robberies, kidnapping business owners for money and killing innocent people, intellectuals and political leaders? I know Tamils who collected money for the LTTE enjoying public money, they didn’t give the money back to the people. Did you ever ask those Tamils to give back or you are one of the Tamils who collected money and enjoying the public money, but talking about Basil to cover up your own crimes against humanity?

        Yes you are talking about confiscating basil’s hoses, and I am talking about confiscating businesses run by Tamils who collected money from public on behalf of the LTTE. Sadly you don’t see similarities between this two, now you know why you got nothing after 37 years of brutal war. You are only good in following the West and Indians blindly. Your defeat in May 2009 was a start, but worse are yet to come. Now days Jaffna is first on drinking alcohol. Teachers are abusing students, and boys are become thugs.

      Then why don’t leave Australia and come back to Sri Lanka? I have read your past comments, you speak about the problems they created for you in spite you were a foreigner and gave you a comfortable living. You simply dismissed the problems Tamils faced in spite being a indigenous people. First then prove yourself and leave that country and come back to Sri Lanka and live here without being a armchair critic seated cozily and comfortably in your chair.

    To all patrons of this forum,
    In Sri Lanka there is a difference. Taking properties of Tamils has taken place with impunity for the last several decades. The present generation believes in the infamous “Mahavamsa”. The Rajapaksas and the forces that committed genocide of Tamils are “Heroes” for the majority. How do you expect Basil Rajapaksa to think whatever he did while on the throne will become stolen property!. Do any of you feel Basil will be seriously taken to task after the present showdown with UNHRC is over. This featured news is for the world to swallow for the time being. People don’t worry the world and the Tamils are easy for the Sri Lankan Governments to deal with. You know it very well from the past history of all successive Governments. Don’t you!

    “The Government has decided to confiscate several houses”

    “legal process against Basil Rajapaksa is expected to take around 10 to 15 years.”

    Only decided, so still not accomplished.

    and when the legal process will take 10 to 15 years so by then Rajapakse would have come back to power and all this returned with interests back to Basil.

      Sk:
      The govt has not decided yet!

      “The Government has sought the Attorney General’s advice”

      You know the answer.

    This for the grass eating two legged masses.This will not happen.There will be a lot of show and it will stop there.There are accusations against Ministers in this govt too.The cycle can repeat itself.

    The beneficiaries will be the masses and that must not happen – as far as political leaders are concerned. The masses are there to bring them into power and luxury.

    The last person to act on principle was Mrs B. when she allowed one of her MPs to be prosecuted and jailed for murder.The last person to prosecute his MP for bribery was SWRD and the punishments were enacted by the Dudley S’s govt. Remember Soyza Jayatillake and Kariappa. Since then no govt has taken action against any other MP – present or past.

    So do not expect a UTOPIA to visit this cursed country.We are the children of Vijaya’s thugs and Indian prostitutes – Both the Sinhalayas and the Dravidians.

    Enough is enough. At least in memory of the late Rev Sobitha and as promised of good governance to the people, the government must act fast & take over everything that Basil owns. Let him go to courts to appeal. That will take his lifetime.Simply saying “we are going to take over” won’t do. The government must act fast and demonstrate its ability to deal with rogues of this nature. Come on Mr. President let us see you in action!

    Rajapaksa trio managed the government from three hubs, Temple trees, Ministry of Defence and Basil’s ministry. These trio, “rewarded loyalty over honor,” and “derailed the careers” of anyone who got in their way. The bread crumb eating other followers would not be held responsible for corruptive behavior, as long as it’s for maintain Raja Paksa regime. THE PANAMA PAPERS opened yet another window on the global system of financial corruption, showing how political leaders and businesses use shell companies in secrecy havens like the British Virgin Islands and Dubai banks to evade taxes and hide corruption and other crimes. Yet the system of corruption depends on another factor beyond secrecy, one that is perhaps even more important: impunity. Impunity means that the rich and powerful escape from punishment even when their malfeasance is in full view. Recently one of the US beneficiaries introduced former Defence Secretary as the future president of Sri Lanka.
    Impunity is epidemic in Sri Lanka. The rich and powerful get away with their heists in broad daylight and they go to jail like a victory parade with no-shame.
    I’m not sure the ‘yahapalanaya’ is another chapter of this.

    What these fellows in Government wishes to confiscate is just a drop in the Ocean of corruption this rogue executed.

    His corrupt deals are innumerable and he was the Mr.10% and Later the Mr.20%. Any sane person should understand that these assets to be confiscated would not constitute even 5% of what this guy would have amassed.

    He is supposed to be living luxuriously in the USA. Follow the money trail and i am sure, there would be some traces.

    Bring back the wealth to Sri Lanka soon. We are suffering because of these criminals by paying higher taxes and raised cost of living.

    His right to do politics should be punished too . This is the
    medium that he accessed to earn his fortunes . He should be
    stopped reaching the public again and again in the name of
    human rights but with malicious intent ! General public should
    be protected from the crooks of all sorts , not only from
    underworld criminals .

    These yahapalana idiots took nearly two years to find out the crimes committed by Rajapaksas. But there is no doubt that Ranil/Sirisena government have no “balls” to put them behind bars, as they themselves are crooks too.
