Hirunika Makes Fiery Speech In Parliament: Severely Criticises Sirisena For Attempting To Grant Presidential Pardon To Duminda Silva

UNP Parliamentarian Hirunika Premachandra made a fiery speech in Parliament today severely criticising President Maithripala Sirisena over his alleged attempts to grant a presidential pardon to Duminda Silva who is convicted of Bharatha Lakshman Premachandra’s murder.

Premachandra said Silva’s supporters were signing public letters in the Kolonnawa area requesting a pardon for the former MP. “They had told the people in the area that they were signing the letter on the advice of the President. I this because they have even visited the houses of my father’s former supporters. I cannot say Silva’s supporters are lying about the President’s advice, as I am not privy to the discussions between President Sirisena and Duminda Silva’s brother.”

The Parliamentarian also said there was no reason to believe that the same President who architected the constitutional coup on October 26 would not grant a presidential pardon to a man convicted of a heinous murder.

“We have seen how other Presidents lost their popularity during their second terms. But this President, unfortunately, has lost his public support even before the end of his first term. I am ashamed of the sacrifices I made to bring him to power in 2015,” Premachandra added.

She also stated that the recommendation of the Justice Minister and the Attorney General should be obtained before granting Presidential pardon to a prisoner under usual circumstances. “I am convinced that the Justice Minister of ours cannot be bought over. She will act according to her conscience.”

If Presidential pardon is granted to Duminda Silva, Premachandra said, other prisoners serving sentences for serious crimes will also seek similar redresses from the President. “How can the President reject their requests after granting presidential pardon to Duminda Silva?” the Parliamentarian asked in Parliament today.

        I find your stupidity is correlated with your age.

        There has been a tried and tested reconciliation process which was devised by wise South African Elders, known as Truth and Reconciliation Commission.
        Go read about it and come back and tell us how did the commission managed the explosive issue.

      “Murderers may be pardoned but not the political prisoners?.”

      They yet to be prosecuted, charged, gone through the legal process, found guilty and sentenced. H

      Why anyone should be pardoned until the judges sentence them to prison?

    Estranged president s actions are unpredictable.That is public secret. Most of his actions ended up either unconstitutional or unethical in very means sofar.
    So, we have no other options until he is impreached.
    But one thing is clear, even if the convicted murderer, alleged drug kin pin, Dumiya will never be subjected to be CLEAN in his rest of life.

    One of the reasons why the presidency should be abolished. What type of crazy power is our president bestowed with? Murderers and racists can be set free on “Independence Day”! Who are these people who demand the release of such vermin? On what grounds? Sirisena and Ranil have failed to appear in court on 5 consecutive hearings in the case filed against Tissa Attannayake. What is the message they are giving us with such attitude and behavior? Duminda Dissanayake is on record saying that Gnanasara will be released too. “The Thera should be released on the Independence Day after considering the service he rendered to the country, to Sinhala Buddhists and his struggle to protect the Buddhism in the country,” MP said. What a despicable statement.

      I thought Duminda Dissanayaka is a good guy.
      .
      But the kind of men to lead getting BP BBS head released is a bad news.
      :
      If both BPs BBS and Duminda SIlva would be set free, we need to come to street asking to release all other DRUG KIN pins and murder convicted to be released.
      :
      Then we can tell the world, BP SORRYSENA should be removed from his authoritarian actions.
      :
      BP Sorriysena is dangerous than any other caterpillars.

    For your information that 1977 UNP-JRJ regime has granted amnesty to Gonawela Sunil by Presindeltal pardon some time during so-called Rule of Dhamatist of JRJ regime.
    In fact Gonawela Sunil is closed associated with (Dr) Ranil Wicks during his 1977 to 1988 that “uncle rule of nation” by political vandalism which against norms of that “Democracy”.
    Well to do that RW having long history misused and abused power of state by tools of mafia of type of UNP model.

    Hirunika Premachandra’s stand is perfectly in order. If the President would go ahead with his scheme to offer Pardon to Duminda Silva, we need no other proof to show that Sri Lanka is a lawless country.

    Oh man, Sirisena would sleep even with swains to come to power again. We get so much crazy with ourselves for voting for this clueless man, he is such a disgusting example for the country. At times, he says, he wants to hang the drug dealers but next instance he wants to pardon them, what a mockery of a man.

    It was a fight between two KUDU MUDALALIS. One died. It looks, this is something related to PResident’s fight against Narcotics. IT is simply a lie by Hirunika ASKING TAKE ME TOO TO YOUR SIDE FROM THIS SINKING SHIP. What happened to that gossip during the Approval of the No confidence motion by making noise in side the parliament was talking very close mouths were very close but not the husband that story ?

    Had MR been successful in remaining as PM, he definitely would have certainly released not only Duminda Silva, but also Gnanasara, Sampath Vidhanapathirana and whoever were ‘Apey Minihas’.

    It is like Sajith Pemadasa’s udagams and how greatest the my father or Ranasinghe Pemadasa was. Found something to talk about fiery speeches. Everything that happens in the parliament are like that fiery speeches, lot of smoke but nothing to show for that. I here some MPs who makes speeches to the media says “PLEASE DO NOT PUBLISH IT”. So even the media is against the country. These Hivallu are playing the game.

    MS is not the same man now.
    He has become CRAZY now.
    He just wants the second term as President of SL. This is NOT going to happen as all the Sri Lankan’s know his REAL personality. He too comes from the rotten mould of Rajapaksa era.

    well well well it is quite clear Sri Lanka is officially turning to a major banana republic.
    Sirisena our so called president is a shameless low life who will do anything to hang onto any hope of survival.
    He is dancing to the tune of Mara and co. obviously, in hope that if Mara comes to power again Sira will be carried along. What a shit head. What a total wack job.
    Not only has he thrown every atom of dignity and self respect down the toilette. Sadly his classlessness is rubbing off on all of us as Sri Lankan citizens. The world is watching!
    I wonder what kind of hellhole this idiot must have crawled out of to enable him behave like an arse wipe so effortlessly. His DNA must belong in some real third class lineage.
    What a pity we Sri Lankans have to contend with such scum as our leaders. Perhaps we deserve such trash. You know what they say, Karma deals all of us what we deserve.
    All credit should go to Mara for starters, who has been leading us down the slippery slope to the sewers since 2005. Mara who, like the devil have corrupted our hearts and souls with his devious words and his propaganda machine have turned our simpleton low IQ suckers.
    As a result most Sri Lankans have lost their humanity, dignity, and essence of Buddhism in us, too bad.
    This is what we get in return for our actions and attitudes. Live with it. No excuses.

    Another reason to abolish the presidency this year before the election.Enough is enough.The more power we give to our representatives,the less power we the people will have.Just give enough to run the country only.Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely.

      Abolishing Executive presidency is good when 13th amendment is abolished too. Then an executive m should be elected by island wide vote and not voted by the thieves, NGOs, Conmen/women, Criminals in the parliament. IT is good PResident’s fund also will go.

      Mike,

      What you speculate is the new Sri Lankan kind of justice. Our people will have to get
      used to this. We will have more and more of this not only from Gamarala but from other
      “leaders” as well. What they forget is the UN and the world are watching this charade.

    The President isw supposed to represent the best in Sri Lanka. Of course he is the product of the best Sinhala Budhist can offer. The President is also a devout Budhist who regularly is blessed by the Maha Sangha.The President is the best product of the Buddhist religion of our generation.

    According to this report he is expected to pardon murderer Duminda Silva and Racist Gnanasara. What an advertisement for the moral education of the foremost religion of Sri Lanka.

    If this is teh best product of Buddhism, then Sinhala people do not seem to realise the buddhist ideology created by this Maha Sangha is almost at the gates of the cemetry.

    It is time to rescue Buddhism from the clutches of these backward people who either have no knowledge of Buddhism or traduce its moral teachings and prostitute it for their benefit.

    Just talking is not enough.People those who love the truth and rule of law will come forward to show their solidarity against such heinous acts. Call all those who support good governance and justice including UNF and organize a protest with various ways. Then will see what Sirisena can do.

    It is sickening to listen to this Kidnap madam’s Hirunika’s fraudulent attempts to make a saint out of her murdered drug dealer father. She tries to behave as a person whose excreta doesn’t stink! This fraud will only work with those who do not know the facts.

    The death of her father was caused by a gangland shoot out. Politics of these two was a battle for contriol of the drugs market. It was just that Duminda or his guards pulled the trigger first, and with better aim. Duminda is not any worse criminal than the dead Premachandra. Ask former police ‘Show’ for the true details of this event.

    Probably Duminda deserves justice by way of a pardon for ridding the country of one of the well-known drug dealers of Kolonnawa mudukku village where the ‘poththa rathu madam’ comes from. Her past stinks.

      So what more talks we need mroe about the kind of DRUG men, but hypocrite philantropist by the very same funds grabed by betraying the youth in this country.
      :
      These men incl Rajapakshe will have to bury in the hell for sure, we know teachings of buddhas very well. We consider them to be the truths about the life.

    Address to Native Veddtha!@
    There are many number of an unaddressed key issues of that functions democrtiac institutions of Lanka has been deliberately skipped by UNP leaders during 1977 to 1994 by JRJ and R.Premapala. While it had been paralysis that Right to vote and Elected their members in Parliament by UNP-JRJ -R.Premapal governances.

    Which was we that called ideology of Neo-Liberalism of Democracy by which UNP leaders, that their methods of democracy by political vandalism and state terrorism.
    The politics of Lumpen of UNP’s are as classes playing main role of uncharted Democracy by current leadership of RW and their pupils like by Hirunika Premachandara.

    In case of politics of democracy has been concern that rerouted to of that practices by anti-democracy regime and anti- democracy norms which against Will of majority and Wish of People of Sri Lankan. Meanwhile that Current UNP leadership are stand for that similar policies of past JRJ regime by RW of UNP and CBK leadership of Federalism of Democracy by partition of Island by mode of that “New” Constitutional proposal .

    Indeed that UNP will crated new chaos and uncertainties among majority of People by make falls allegation against President of SL.

    Sinhalayini, beware of Demala Vellala politicians who are ‘Tigers in Sheep’s Clothing’. They are trying hard to push a new constitution which is a sugar coated bitter pill through the throat of Sinhalayo. They keep on changing the sugar coating from time to time to make it more palatable to Sinhalayo without changing the bitter substance inside. So, don’t get fooled!

      BP Evil Eye/You should be our IBOLA to this nation,
      .
      Not Tamil Srilankens only, but varied srilankens in masses ve been longing to a have a new constitution. This was set top of the agendas of the manifestoes of both Mythree Sorrysena and Mahinda Jarapakshe.
      :
      We cant move forward with the rotten 78 constitution anymore. That is black and white to ones with sanity. But all others that behave like you guys, – like getting one with treating beggar s wound, stand on our way -this is inhuman.
      :
      BP of your nature, would NEVER grasp it, withjust few more years to go ” wala kajjagahana”.. I have a dream that you guys be able to see it before you leave this world .- please come to sense and see it beyond.
      BPs of your nature are the curse to this country so long you guys stay stuck to agendas of extremists.
      :
      Dont put our race SINHALAYA above the altar. You guys have proved and have been proving you guys are even worst than Germany’s nazists. Today s Germany we see, not even 10 % of NPD (Nazists supportive movement, party active, but in SRILANKA we have over 40% that is led by BP Rajakshes to behave even going beyond Germany s nazists.
      Dont underestimate our SKIN heads hidden in TEMPles. They ve been adding fuel to racial strom in this country. They have proved it sofar and these men behave the fire covered under ashes.
