Hirunika Murder Plot: Bharatha Siblings Slam Rajapaksa Brothers

By Colombo Telegraph –

“Should any harm comes to Hirunika’s life and limb as a failure to act on this (as it was in Bharatha’s case) those who are in-charge of defense establishment of Sri Lanka would be held responsible for such tragic eventuality.” Bharatha Lakshman Premachandra’s siblings told Colombo Telegraph.

Sending a statement Bharatha’s siblings further say “We as very concerned siblings of Bharatha, wrote to the President with copies to the defense secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksha , Minister Basil Rajapaksha and the hierarchy of the SLFP requesting extra security for our brother in order to save his life  and security for other two, naming MP Duminda Silva as the person who was behind the death threat that Bharatha  had  had on his life until he was assassinated. Although we know for a fact that most powerful three members of the ruling family of Sri Lanka discussed the contents of our letter at that time, after our brother’s murder they shamefully denied receipt of that letter. De’-ja’ vu  all over again. With this newspaper exposé which reveals the death threat on Hirunika’s life, it is incumbent on the President to act swiftly to save Hirunika’s life by providing adequate security right away,  conduct unbiased police investigations into alleged murder ploy and bring suspect to justice without any further delay.”

Below we give the full statement of Bharatha Lakshman Premachandra’s siblings;

 

Six months after assassination of Bharatha Lakshman Premachandra who was a former Parliamentarian, on an election day in Mullariyawa, now, one of the week-end newspapers in Sri Lanka has reported that “Contract” has been given to two under world gangs to assassinate Hirunika Premachandra who is the only daughter of Bharatha in order to stop her relentless pursuit of justice for her father’s and three of his political supporters’ brutal murders which were committed in the broad day light. Although large majority of Srilankans know how pathetic the way defense establishments of Sri Lanka handled initial investigations into this quadruple murder, it is important to mention that regardless of overwhelming evidence of Parliamentarian Duminda Silva’s involvement  in this shooting incident  on that day, defense establishments failed to name Duminda Silva as a suspect, until magistrate court judge ruled Duminda Silva a suspect after careful consideration of evidence and affidavits of eye witnesses  against him.

On this backdrop, apparent failure of fair and independent police investigations into this heinous crime, just like the way her father bravely stepped in to stop voter suppression and intimidation on that fateful election day, now, Hirunika has bravely stepped in seeking justice for her father’s and other three brutal murders. It is obvious her action has made some ultra-powerful people in Sri Lanka very uncomfortable in carrying out their other half of the plan in Bharatha’s murder case. After some digging into this newspaper report, it has been further revealed that this alleged murder contract has been given to these two under world groups by none other than Reno Silva who is the elder brother of main suspect Duminda Silva and the business partner of defense secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksha.

It is absolutely repugnant that defense secretary of Sri Lanka chose to partner up with the elder brother of quadruple murder suspect to invest tens of  millions of rupees in the hotel industry particularly when his business partner is under investigations on alleged tax evasion.

Under similar circumstances when two under world characters confessed to Mirihana Police  in January 2011 that they were given contracts to kill Bharatha Lakshman, Mullariyawa development council chairman Prassanna Solangarachchi and Kaduwela municipal council  member Lakmal Wilathgamuwa,  We as very concerned siblings of Bharatha, wrote to the President with copies to the defense secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksha , Minister Basil Rajapaksha and the hierarchy of the SLFP requesting extra security for our brother in order to save his life  and security for other two, naming MP Duminda Silva as the person who was behind the death threat that Bharatha  had  had on his life until he was assassinated. Although we know for a fact that most powerful three members of the ruling family of Sri Lanka discussed the contents of our letter at that time, after our brother’s murder they shamefully denied receipt of that letter. De’-ja’ vu  all over again. With this newspaper exposé which reveals the death threat on Hirunika’s life, it is incumbent on the President to act swiftly to save Hirunika’s life by providing adequate security right away,  conduct unbiased police investigations into alleged murder ploy and bring suspect to justice without any further delay. Should any harm comes to Hirunika’s life and limb as a failure to act on this (as it was in Bharatha’s case) those who are in-charge of defense establishment of Sri Lanka would be held responsible for such tragic eventuality.

Thank you,

Asela Premachandra

    The Great Divider has succeeded in splitting Bharatha’s family
    as well – as one learns. Apparently, Mrs Premchandra is now an
    “Advisor” to the President – working from Temple Trees.So where
    does the family stand in this clear case where two drug-traffickers
    went at each other?

          Who appointed Duminda Silva as monitoring MP of the Ministry of Defense!
          Why bother to write letters to the guys who are responsible for the murders and disappeaances in the first place. I just do not get it. The siblings of Baratha Lukshman should start a campaign instead to educate the Lankan people on what a criminal gang the Rajapakse bros. are!

      I do not think murdering a person is a political joke. For some reason most of the people in sri lanka do think by forcing take away somebody’s living right is ok. I do not blame any one for that attitude. Living in a country with 30 year war must have given attitude to think so simple about living rights. We have long way to go and think like high quality humans. After reading this comment below mentioned questions came to my mind.

      How you can call CBK as a lost daughter when you don’t know PERSONAL relationship she had with her mother and father? (not politically)
      Actually as you said Bharatha was a district politician. But I always wonder why he had a funeral similar to a national leader in srilanka. The funeral was that big. EVEN MORE THAN PRESIDENT R. PREMADASA. The crowd was unbelievable. DEFINITELY He has lived with people and they have admired his contribution to their lives. Even well known people may not have that kind of big funeral. Do you think you will have a funeral that big? I doubt it. At least you can learn from Bharatha and Vijaya how to earn respect from people.
      I see HIRUNIKA as a daughter who wants to fight for justice for her father. Now a days kids are very selfish. i am sure HIRUNIKA knows how dangerous this government is to attack for its injustice acts. But she wants to serve the justice to a man she loved the most. which means her hero. I do not think in this case she is a clown. But when you have one sided mind you will become a clown. that is why we have look at the big picture.

    Hirunika by now should know that his late father too was a famous thug ….if his father lived and Duminda died instead, by her father’s thugs or a shot by her father who were also armed on that fateful day…..will Hirunika make a noise like now?????? I remember Bharatha Lakshman was a famous thug long time ago, this is the reason why he lost his seat and could not enter parliament….

      Nimal, you hit the nail on the head. Hirunika has forgotton all this. Hirunika is trying to go into politics.
      Should we get the Terrorists LTTE back, then people will wake up, our people forget so quickly.

    Dear who were reading and writing those points without any human been that you have to think that your mother is rapped / sister is rapped & killed/ your father has assassinate then what could be a reaction from you and your family.

    the day / judgement will be for rajapaksha family due to govermening.

    Lets this if you put down this goverment and keep them as a opposition party then what will happen and which kind of judgement will be given.

    As per my opinion that if the goverment lost their ruling they will run a way from SL country due that wrong and misjudge they have done in the pass till to date.

    Hopefully i would like to request to the votes( SL people) and human been to keep changes for politicians & governing parties frequently and those who jumping in to other parties do not vote for them accept if your dicide

    Every votes and human been producing the minister and why we dont wanna change and see waht they are doing after changes

    thanks to undestarnd to do the changes in our country and our life.

    The human / votes the main justice of selceting of the goverment so why we have to wait for the justice and put hands together you will see the different
    Thanks for the time that you read my article

    I am note a writer Or poeter Human been to be win & enjoy their freedom to live the life joyfull

    Thug or no Thug, Joker or no Joker, Citizens who ever they may be have no right to take the law into their hands. And when they do, if the Establishment of Law, drags its feet or is incompetent to bring the criminals to justice it’s a shame to the law enforces who are paid servants of the public. They become Pin Padi Karayas of the State.
