Hell In Paradise

By Tisaranee Gunasekara

“It was in the basement of the Sri Lankan Criminal Investigation Department… we sat and listened as a group of senior police officers took us through the case. My stomach churned as we learned of the sickening and horrific details of the completely unprovoked attack that Khuram and his partner had been subjected to” – British Parliamentarian Simon Danczuk[i] [ii]

“They started beating me. I fell to the ground….. They killed Khuram and sexually assaulted me…”[iii]

Victoria Tkacheva was attacked at a hotel party on Christmas Eve 2011

That was Victoria Tkacheva, the 24 year old Russian tourist, who, with her companion Khuram Shaikh, came to Sri Lanka to enjoy a holiday in Paradise and found, instead, Hell.

According to witnesses, Ms. Tkacheva was discovered in a room, naked and unconscious. The police subsequently confirmed that she was either raped or sexually assaulted: “She had been raped or sexually assaulted and had suffered vaginal injuries, according to a Sri Lankan police report[iv].

Ms. Tkacheva waived her right to anonymity as a rape-victim because she wanted justice.

Sadly, justice, in Rajapaksa Sri Lanka, is the ultimate oxymoron.

According to a statement made in parliament by the Chief Government Whip, Minister Dinesh Gunawardena, Victoria Tkacheva was neither raped nor sexually abused. As if trying to exculpate himself from his putrid words, Minister Gunawardena added, “I am presenting the answer given to me by the Ministry of Defence, based on police records submitted to them”[v].

President Mahinda Rajapaksa is the Minister of Defence. His younger brother Gotabhaya Rajapaksa is the Secretary to the Ministry of Defence. The repulsive statement read out by Minster Gunawardane came from their ministry.

According to Mahinda and Gotabhaya Rajapaksa, either Ms. Tkacheva is lying or hallucinating; or beating a woman into unconsciousness and having sex is not rape.

In Rajapaksa Sri Lanka a brutal war became a ‘Humanitarian Operation’ and gigantic internment camps ‘Welfare Villages’. So why cannot rape become ‘consensual sex’?

Commenting on this latest outrage, British Parliamentarian Simon Danczuk said, “When I visited in March the head of police conducting the investigation showed us all the medical reports that clearly showed that she had been raped”[vi].

Why did the police go back on their own findings?

The main accused, Sampath Chandrapushpa, is the man handpicked by the Ruling Family to head the Tangalle Pradesheeya Sabha. Tangalle is the Rajapaksa pocket-borough; the President’s private residence, Carlton House, is located there. The fact that Samptha Chandrapushpa was chosen to head the Tangalle PS proves that he is a very, very favoured acolyte of the Rajapaksas. Rather like Duminda Silva, who was appointed by the Rajapaksas as the Monitoring Parliamentarian for the Defence Ministry, even though he had been charged with raping a minor!

Sampath Chandrapushpa is a ‘Chosen One’ of the Rajapaksas. Therefore he must be saved, the same way the other ‘Chosen Ones’ (Duminda Silva, Mervyn Silva, et al) were saved. Because in Rajapaksa Sri Lanka, the only real and unforgivable crime is opposing the Rajapaksas; everything else, including murder, rape and child abuse, is a mere bagatelle. A Lankan who does not commit the ultimate crime of anti-Rajapaksaism can get away all the lesser crimes.

If the Defence Ministry can save Sampath Chandrapushpa by proclaiming that Khuram Shaikh died a natural death, it would do so. Had Mr. Shaikh been a Lankan or even a citizen of a non-democracy friendly towards the Rajapaksas, the Siblings may have given that angle a try. That is a non-option, because Mr. Shaikh was British; even if David Cameron is willing to acquiesce in such an abomination, British media/public will not let him. But such skulduggery was possible with the rape/sexual assault charge, because the victim is a Russian and protecting the rights of Russians has never been a priority for President Putin.

If the police report about the assault on Ms. Tkacheva was turned on its head, the DNA evidence about Mr. Shaikh’s murder too can be tampered with.

Recently Sampath Chandrapushpa said that the case filed against him by the CID was the “result of an international conspiracy against the Sri Lankan Govt”[vii]. This indubitably would be the line his Rajapaksa-masters would take, when he walks free, triumphantly, cleared of all charges, post-Hambantota Commonwealth.

A Suicidal Nation

If the horror experienced by a tourist can be denied in such a cavalier fashion, what cannot happen to a Lankan woman or child who is raped/sexually assaulted by a Rajapaksa crony?

The denial of the rape/sexual assault charge sends a clear and cogent message: a Rajapaksa acolyte can commit even the most horrific of crimes, publicly, and get away with it.

In such a climate, where impunity has been taken to an obscene extreme, no non-Rajapaksa Lankan can be safe, from marauding Rajapaksa-men.

Even non-Rajapaksa SLFPers and their families will be unsafe in this clime of criminal and perverse permissiveness. After all, Bharatha Lakshman Premachandra was a close supporter and friend of Mahinda Rajapaksa, during his nonentity-years. Those years of loyalty availed Mr. Premachandra nothing. He was murdered; his alleged murderer did not serve a day in jail.

Sri Lankans, if they have any concern about the safety of themselves and their loved ones, must consider the enormity of this latest Rajapaksa outrage. The denial of rape/sexual assault charge proves that there is no obscenity, no abomination that is beyond the Rajapaksas. They will go to any amoral extreme, any execrable length to save themselves and their acolytes.

Rajapaksa corruption goes beyond economics and politics; it is moral corruption as well. The Siblings are not only corrupting the judiciary, the bureaucracy and the monks, but society as well. When a rape/sexual assault charge is negated in such a blasé manner, it cannot but encourage abusive and predatory conduct across society.

The Siblings preach morality and values and do the opposite. They ban ‘unsuitable’ movies while ignoring real-crimes and encouraging social-vices. Child abuse and rape have risen to epidemic levels. Extortionate taxes are imposed on essential goods (including medicines and baby formula) while mega-casinos get mammoth tax-breaks.

When Vellupillai Pirapaharan’s mother died, three bitches were killed and their bodies dumped at her cremation site.

This is Rajapaksa civilisation – a puritanically pious shell hiding innards of ruthless depravity and criminal prurience.

Colm O’Gorman, a pioneer in the expose-cum-battle against clerical-child abuse in Catholic Ireland, warned, “We make ourselves powerless when we pretend we don’t know”[viii]. If the Rajapaksas are allowed to get away with arbitrarily and anti-factually dropping the rape/sexual abuse charge, we will be rendering ourselves and our loved ones vulnerable to similar atrocities.

We can profess unconcern about the second raping of Victoria Tkacheva. We can opine that the Rajapaksas are blameless because they defeated the LTTE. We can believe that all calumny stems from Gotabhaya and other Rajapaksas are good men. But we can indulge in such self-delusion, only at our own peril. Even if we do not become direct targets, we will find ourselves living in a society plagued by moral corruption. In this society not only will war be peace, slavery freedom and ignorance strength; here murder will be natural death, rape consensual-sex and child abuse child care.

The Tamils already know this horrendous reality. It is now our turn.

    Hats of again to your Thisaranee. Thanks a million – but again – take good care because the Rajapassa brothers whose end is now in sight will not leave power in Lanka without a BLOODBATH — as is happening today in Syria.
    They have been creating a military dictatorship with Gota working on building a DEEP STATE or a “state within a state” to secure the Rajapassa family rule.

        The ONLY reason that Tisaranee is alive today is probably because those you worship don’t know what she looks like.
        Incidentally, since you are so pompous on the subject of REAL identity, why don’t you put YOUR NAME AND YOUR PICTURE on your contributions? Or would that, in and of itself, be the ultimate in pornography?

            You are so right Thisaraness, but sadly, the fact that not a single women’s group has spoken out against the rape and the fact that violence against women and girls is encouraged by the regime’s thugs and values and the fact that Rosy Senanayakes’ private members Billto get more women in governance was stymied. This tells us that there is NO women’s movement in Sri Lanka.. There are Only NGOs working on single issues that are incapable of connecting the dots and doing voter education about the big picture of corruption.. or because they need to protect their livelihoods..

              Rape is a crime against humanity. There are so many organisations that can take up rape. BBS/ Ravaya/ Trade Unions such as Futa, CMU, CFTU/JSS, Male NGO and also the Women NGOs. Women NGOs have taken up these issues at different times, but what about the others. Don’t the males in the above organisation has a moral duty to take up the issue of rape and sexual harassment. Women NGOs are few in number compared to the vast number of civil society organisation and religious organisations. These organisation have numbers and power. According to recent reports in the CT, a woman is raped every 90 minutes. Do you expect only the the women’s movement to take up these issues. It can be your sister, mother or a friend who is raped next. It is a matter for the whole of Sri Lanka to take it up.

              BBS screams loud and in fact damaged Fashion Bug clothing complex saying that a Sinhalese girl was raped. It proved to be a DAMN lie. There was an incident that happened in a garage 500 metres away from this store and the police had taken action before BBS damaged that store. BBS is blind to all these rapes and incest that is taking place in this country – to repeat a rape happens once in 90 minutes- BBS wants to be the religious police if so why are they keeping quiet when their women folks are raped. Does BBS believe that because Pradeshya Saba person is a Sinhalese, that he is not committing an offence if they rape a woman. Is the religion of BBS confined to hate speeches against Christians and Muslims. Now BBS will wait to pick up an incident where a non Buddhist rape a Buddhist to make a din. That may be their definition of rape

              .

            Instead of being so damned defensive and trying to deflect a capitalised question, why don’t you ANSWER what you’ve been asked? Might indicate that, among other things, “Sarojini” is not of the gender usually associated with such a name, perhaps?
            You seem totally unfamiliar with the saying that goes, “They can run, but they can’t hide (indefinitely)!”

            Tisaranee has more guts to say a spade a spade than some of our Opposition Parliament Girlie Boys who are there only to get a Pin Padi while safeguarding their Parliament seat.

            Anyway I think that President Rajapakse’s Blood relation to Lord Buddha and King Dutugemunu may have some connections as to what is happening in the country today.

            That’s why Minister Rajitha Senaratne said that it’s time to say Mahinda Saranan Gachchami, Namal, chamal, gota, Basil saranan Gachchami. Sadu saaaadu saaaaddduuuu.

            How did you forget the Pig eating shit so soon……and the Goni Billas.

            May be Channel 4 Callum Macrae might be able to solve some of these mysteries when he comes for CHOGM.

            Happy to see CHOGM Dinner menu which may consist of healthy vegetarian Polkudu sambol and Grass curry.

          Leela – should NOW be 68 yrs by age
          Leela – hates Muslims – but possess some knowledge on Islamic studies – should have been isolated somewhere in UK – decades ago

          Leela – is said to have cheated many of their customers – poor customers have lost their funds ranging to millions

          Leela – uses various IDs when defending task pro MR

      Dodo,

      “Rajapaksa corruption goes beyond economics and politics; it is moral corruption as well. The Siblings are not only corrupting the judiciary, the bureaucracy and the monks, but society as well.”

      “The Siblings preach morality and values and do the opposite. They ban ‘unsuitable’ movies while ignoring real-crimes and encouraging social-vices.”

      Welcome, to “Dharma Deepaya”, the “Sinhala Theravada Buddhist Faith Island”, The “Flying Fish Island”, where the Hegemony and Morals of the Theravada Monk-Ruler Axis Prevails. The hegemony is maintained by;

      1. The Ruler and Their cohorts

      2. Sinhalese Theravada Buddhist Monks and their cohorts.

      This is called the Sinhalese Buddhist Nazi Hegemony supported by the Ruler. The Monks and Ruler are Lords. All others are Serfs, existing to serve the two Lords, the Monks and the Ruler and their cohorts.

      The Monks claim they are Theravada Sinhala Buddhists. The Rulers claim they are Sinhala Buddhists. So, they have the Myths of Buddhism, being used for the Monk-Ruler Hegemony, just like the Catholic Church did during the Middle Ages. The Serfs are promised Nibbana, freedom from Rebirth Myths. The Natives,(The Serfs) were happy and Egalitarian before the introduction of Buddhism, and the overhead expenses that came along with it. In Tibet, up o 20% of the males were Monks and they controlled the land and the people, with torture.

      What are the Myths of Buddhism? Nirvana, Nibbana, Rebirth and Sansara. Originally, it was a Philosophy, just like Aristotelian Philosophy, with its limitations, but is NOT a Religion. The Monks, invented a God. Buddha, Made Statutes, Built Monasteries and Temples, and placed them on top, to perpetuate their Hegemony. This still continues in Sri Lanka. A stop was put to it in Tibet, courtesy the Red Chinese.

      You figure, if Buddhism is the Curse of Lanka, The Virus, that infected the Sinhala People.

      Want to know what Buddhism is claimed to be and the Real Buddhism is?
      Real Buddhism aka Mara-ism.
      Introduction to Buddhism. A violent Religion? Monk Hegemony?

      Compare the Asoka Edict with The Rajapaksa Edict.

      The 4 Noble of Truths and the 8 Fold Path.

      Then compare, the BBS and Sinhala Ravaya Monks.

      It is the evil Monk-Rajapaksa Axis, the current curse of Lanka.

    After sitting on this case for more than an year the Govt has the impunity to make an outrageous claim that nothing happened. A victim found stark naked stripped of her clothes by rampant criminals and murderers coming out untouched like a white lilly in a garden pond?

    Indeed the Govt Whip deserves a whipping for such a outrageous statement. The British Govt should reconsider its decision to attend CHOGM in the light of these developments. A Govt which tampers with evidence is not fit to head CHOGM for even one second, leave alone two years.

    We all should understand that there is a very big International Conspiracy going on against our Deshapremi Govt. Actually our “Boralugoda Sunaka Rajaya” is correct because Sampath Vidanapathirana also confirmed this and he said this rape case is an international Conspiracy against him and Rajapakshas. I am sure Our Boralugoda Sunaka Rajaya will come up with another new theory saying that this Girl, Victoria raped Sampath Vidanapathirana and other 7,8 other Goons by force to tarnish the image of these innocent guys. I am sure our new independent Judiciary will also agree with the new theory and Police will find new evidence against that Girl, Victoria.

      Lapatiya,

      Yes, your comment make sense. It may also possible that the Police report and the Independent Judiciary final verdict will come as Victoria Murdered Khuram Shaikh to get at his money,his Life Insurance, his jewelry and Bank account and finally by force got raped by Sampath Vidanapathirana and other 7 or 8 to sling mud at Rajapakse’s Government and to rob Kuram’s assets.

      According to Court’s final verdict will be…..While Sri Lanka is developping so fast,both International and local conspirators are trying to bring it down and this is another attempt.

      Also courts will notify this to David Cameron, Vladimir Putin,USA, UN, EU,CW on this International Conspiracy.

      “Must have been very hard for Ms T to keep clear of the Sinhala Buddhists and the BBS here.”

      No one in his/her right mind should keep clear of Sinhala/Buddhists and BBS.

      In any case, right mind and Sinhala/Buddhists are mutually exclusive.

      K.A.Sumanasekera aka Leela aka Tsunamisekera:
      This should be right down your alley – rape.
      Enjoy! Because, you’d better remember that your friends didn’t differentiate between people on the basis of gender when they forced their sexual attentions on their “enemies.” Watch out, buddy, you might be mistaken for one of “them!”

    The Rajapaksa’s rule by smoke and mirrors. Britiain should give strong travel warnings to their citizens, and keep this horrible murder and rape alive through their media. The UK should have refused to attend the Rajapaksa carnival show for the CHOGM. These disgusting criminals who are chosen pets of the Rajapaksa’s should have been held accountable for their arrogant crimes, and given the worst sentences for such crimes, instead they are the privileged ones who can just about do anything from rape to murders, and still roam this country, freely. Criminals are protected and aided by the ruling regime, because they are the chosen ones, and not even the rule of law should apply to them.

    It seems these low life murderers and rapists keep resorting to such heinous crimes because they know the corrupt regime will protect them from the law. Just like the saffron robed terrorists now have that privilege.

      See, the verdict of the British murder case is turning its way similar to the nature of the Duminda Silva Murder case – even so called respectful ones- at least in the past, Dinsheh Guna shamelessly daring to add blatant lies just to be belonged to the bunch. But I doubt, the UK would be silent as Baratha^s parties have become to this day

    For some time now we have witnessed the total collapse of our once respected and well-thought of country and society. To a large extent under the Rajapajkse regime, we have become an almost lawless society. Experienced Planter Nihal Perera (70) is reported to have been openly assaulted, stabbed and killed by a gang of thieves -lead by a Govt strong man of the area – in the Estate where he was Superintendent at Deraniyagala – a fortnight ago. The much experienced Planter was merely doing his duty in an Estate said to be owned by American interests. Provided with Security Guards since he was under threat in a job he was tasked to stop the open thievery of Tea by naked threat of threat by outsiders lead by a politician-thug with Govt influence. When the thug came, driven in his huge SUV and a posse of armed thugs, the entire Estate staff had frozen in fear. The visitors have isoluated him to a different place, his bodyguards mercilessly attacked – all as message not to interfere with the thug.
    Once again the Police in the area preferred to remain silent since a Govt thug was involved or was complicit. Is the Police on the take as well? In the Kahawatta areas even middle class people fear to live in their own homes due to murders and robberies by IRCs enjoying Govt influence in the area. In areas not far from the Parliamentary Complex (Kotte/Talangama areas) people live in fear of robbery and attack from armed thugs. People in these areas moving about in the night in social inter-action has dropped drastically. All these areas have long established Police Stations – with some enjoying the protection of the presence of Army camps and yet people live in fear and uncertainty.

    It is the Buddhist clerical leadership that should have come forward in providing the lead to see what is wrong in our society and how people can be saved. But the problem is men like Mervyn and Duminda, to mention two out of a thousand – nothing but armed thugs and drug-traffickers – enjoy the close friendship, protection and possibly encouragement of the very top to carry out “their professions” There are many who suggest this may be because the spoils are shared???

    The British Govt issuing a Travel Advisory warning their citizens
    Sri Lanka is an unsafe place(“a country to be concerned about” in the language of the British PM) to visit is not surprising.

    Where is the safety of person and property guarantted in the Constitution. Tisaranee puts it well “the Tamils already know this horrendous reality. It is now our turn”

      ISS, Do not jut pick few isolated incidents and base criminality of a country on those premises alone. It sounds as if the US, South Africa and etc have less murders than in Sri Lanka. Google and check how many attacks on Muslim mosques taken place in the UK during the last month and compare it with Sri Lanka report that as well. You talk about ‘the British Govt issuing a Travel Advisory warning’, but only last week I see many Tamils speaking tourists coming out of Colombo airport. Diaspora Tamils must be feeling safe for them to come here in such larger numbers. Why talk of Mervyn and Duminda, they are only two of 225.

        Dear Veddah’s Cousin a.k.a. Leela and many other avatars,

        Those of Sri Lankan origin returning to the country owe no thanks
        to the regime. Even at worse times they came in. Today, there are
        many of Iranian origin in the West visiting relatives in their own troubled country. That is just one example.

      Thanks for this info. This contents made me very thoughtful. Today the situation in the country is horrifying. I have relatives and friends that have returned to the country for a better living after the war is no longer there, but they should be very unhappy with their life hearing all these crime incidents. My question is why the leader of the nation fails to take due actions in terms of rapidly increasing crimes ? What is the advantage for him not safeguarding the security of general public ?

          Thanks, Mahela@. So why then the majority seems to be blind ? Meaning not even asking themselves, why the crimes investigations are not carried out properly. Why no protests asking more democratic rights ? And why cant they go on street protest until the rulers reestablish lost law and order ? Is that because majority take them as indifferent ? Or just because they have unexplainable fears not to be caught by state run white vanning or other brutalities ?
          Do you think that the majority would remain so naive not being dissent to the rulers ? Is that all because his GOVT defeated terror within the country? I have no idea, but really shocking seeing no reaction (Bahutharaya). Folks seem to be hell bent to trust MR further why ? Why don’t people raise the question – that price hikes should be not acceptable because there is no war any more. When would the stupid folks grasp that entire bunch cant help nation to come forward.

          May be I have lot of unanswered questions about lanken society, being unable to live there for the last two decades. Today,I happened to watch a TV program on an EU channel, That was about a female lawyer how her genuine efforts helped the poor of the poor in the society. She was almost like mother theresa, had all guts to go to politicians and raise the question why the particular authorities failed their duties and the consequently the students did not their bursaries as had been in the past. Following this documentary, instantly what I raised myself was why at least few of lanken law professionals fail to be exemplary ? should not be that every lawyer is crooked or waiting for bribes.

    When Mahinda Rajapaksa was elected for his first term, and independent commissions were under siege, he was interviewed by a journalist on his views on the independence of the Police Commission. His reply was ” If I cannot appoint the OIC of Tangalle Police, what is the point in my being President of the country?” That statement highlighted the limits of his intellect and his understanding of the role of the Police. Rajapaksa is morally corrupt as Tisaranee says, and we will not see a conviction in the Khuram case just as much as the Shayam murder.

          CBK is thousand times educated than any others in the parliament today. Her terms did well with improvement of Education than the current man^s. Teachers got their salary hikes during her times, today, people have forgotten all these. Our people are to blame most of all.

          Her UN speeches, she did not get written through UK companies, spending mios of dollars from the country^s budge and several occasions where she was an invitee, proved herself being educated enough enough to address a gathering. Even most hated JR was an educated man – though his 78 constitution is the root course of the all political problems that face the country today.

          Rajitha is just an oral patient, who opened defended that most murderous and MP on their bunch – Duminda Silva at the time, the murder incident was discussed on the National TV. I have no faith inn Rajitha or anyone of that bunch specially those crossed over.

          They are the worst on the top of the list that have ruined the nation being anchored to the most criminal leader of the Asia today- MR.

      Rajapakshe is the most criminal leader in the south asian region. He is unpredictable. Everything happen with his knowledge. That particular low grade man – is proved to have asked a PRIMARY SCHOOL teacher to kneel down before him has now been waiting to contest again. If that was the case in the US or Eu countries, he would have been sent to jail sessions and rehab programs.

    On the night of February 26 last year, a white man named George Zimmerman a resident in the town of Sanford had shot and killed a 17 year old unarmed black teen named Trayvon Martin. After one year and four months of the murder, a jury of six women found Zimmerman not guilty for second-degree murder and manslaughter.

    It was amazing that the jury determined that Zimmerman was justifiable in using a deadly force “to prevent imminent death or great bodily harm to himself” — Florida’s definition of self-defense.

    Outside the courtroom, demonstrators who supported Trayvon stood in stunned silence. But legal analysts say they were not surprised by the verdict because the prosecution did not prove its case. Local new paper reported as criminal attorney Darren Kavinoky said “The prosecution had no clear narrative, witnesses that appeared poorly prepared, and at the end of the day, this is more of a loss by the prosecution than a win by the defense.”

    Al Jazeera’s Yasmine Ryan, reported as Paola Baccette, a professor at UC Berkelely, said that she felt “pure outrage” over yesterday’s ruling. “We live in a racist country and most of the murderers of young black men walk free.” Prominent US rights activists Reverend Jesse Jackson appealed for calm and said “Avoid violence, it will lead to more tragedies. Find a way for self-construction not deconstruction in this time of despair,”

    If TG cannot be patience till the case is taken up, she should contest coming up elections together with other NGO sharks on a platform ‘justice for Victoria Tkacheva’. I believe that is the only way, TG can bring about an awareness of Tkacheva case among the general public in Sri Lanka. Needless to say, she can defeat the government at elections as well. Also work towards her larger goal of packing Rajapakses home. But this type of writing never will change the situation.

      She is a writer only. To win elections in SRILANKA, you should be a thug or coming from such backgrounds. This is apparently the REALITY after 2005. Earlier shortly after the 89 insurgency, election related issues were totally different. May be, to that time even there were few incidents related to vote rigging but not comparable to the degree of the corruption levels reached to date. Even so called buddhists biased BBS and the like segments were no in place to that epoch – in which over 50k youth of the country went missing.

      She is writing on behalf of the thousands who are outraged by the lackadaisical attitude of the Government in this and many other cases where we see a distinct attempt at cover up to protect Mahinda Rajapaksa’s henchmen. Do not wait until tragedy falls closer to home to wake up and raise your hand in protest. Justice must be available to all and dispensed likewise equally to all. If this cannot be ensured Mahinda Rajapaksa must resign.

      Why to wait until the case is taken up ? Knowing the reality of biased verdicts of similar cases sofar – people incl TG are crystal clear that Rajapskes will not allow any fair verdicts. If President is well concerned about the security of people, as his ugly mouth spouts, he could have taken every necessary steps to keep the key accused further in Jail, why should he be set free on bail before the case is not finalized ? Is that because particular man who is the key accused to have killed the UK tourists is their security guard ? Or perhaps, DNA test comparison of Rajapakshe would reveaöL whether the boy has the same blood of Rajas.

    Shouldn’t the loyal lot of Ms T here submit a joint rquest to Sharma for a press Pass for her with a few extra days for R& R to join Callum and Harrison.

    This will allow at least Ms T to break out of the cocoon and see how good her old Motherland is without the Terrorists,

    Ms T may even get in to see our Tourist attractions at local rates, if she can still remember a few phrases in the old mother tongue and butter up the admission staff even if she has burned the old ID card.

      KAS – your continued bashing of “Ms T” notwithstanding, tell us, if you will, what YOU think of the horrific happenings described by her in this post. Do you think Victoria is lying about what happened? Do you think that Chandrapushpa and his cohorts are innocent and deserve to be free and back to base? What do you think of the ‘legal’ stance? Is this the justice you believe in?

      And what do your irrelevant comments have to do with the subject of the post? Actually your continued irrelevance to what is posted (generally) is getting to be more than a bit irritating. No problem with your loyalty to the regime, but do try to make intelligent observations instead of the same old ‘shooting the messenger’ crap.
