Hulugalla Recalled

Lakshman Hulugalla who was appointed as the Deputy High Commissioner in the Sri Lankan High Commission in Canberra, Australia during the Rajapaksa regime, has been recalled from service.

Hulugalla is among 36 political appointees of the diplomatic service to be recalled this week and this is the second set of political appointees who will be returning, since the change of regime.

Those returning this week include Deputy High Commissioners, First Secretaries and Second secretaries etc and most of them are recruitments made outside the cadre.

The first set to be recalled included 29 diplomats and the rest are scheduled to follow on a staggered basis. The number of political appointees in the diplomatic service had escalated to such a level that only a handful of officials from the Foreign Service had been attached to the Sri Lankan High Commission in Australia; the rest had all been politically influenced appointments.

    Only now I know where he has been hiding after that incident in Colombo. MR has given refuge to all criminals. If he had stayed for another term SL could have become a sanctuary to all juntas n criminals. Pirating is a good way of earning quickly. MR didn’t try it!

      Poor guy has to start making effort to commit suicide again.

      Anyway at the time SF was arrested by MR regime in 2010 – this Balugalle was the defence spoksman to hurt the nation as to why they did so. Very same bunch of robbers to face the Dittadammawedaneeya not being covered by diplomatic impunnity is what we are seeing today.

    About time these men are recalled. Yasara had no shame to jump on the bandwagon to be with Bandula Jayasekara after a visit with Yoshitha Rajapaksha in 2012. She will be with anyone who will put her on the murunga tree. Who better than Bandula jump at the opportunity to get her here. Disgraceful.

      “Who better than Bandula jump at the opportunity to get her here” ..
      Yasara knew that BIJAY (Bandula Jayasekera) will always find loop-HOLES to get her down. BIJAY and Rajkattapal Abeynayake are both “mango friends” and they proved their track record wherever they went!!

    Come on Sri Lanka, it is very unfair to call us back suddenly. Particularly at a time when Canada top the list of countries to live in a recent global survey. We had been very loyal to Shenuka madam and Sajin Vass sir and to some extent the GLP. We always pass messages to MR even without our boss’ knowledge, that was the duty Sajin Sir gave us. We thought he was very happy with what we have doing. So why is this sudden call?. We do also have our dreams, now all became day dream.

      “Mr Hulugalle, welcome to Colombo, lets get ready to answer the questions.”

      Will he travel by plane or by Boat from Australia? Just curious. Easy to commit suicide by jumping into sea.

    Seems like well planned workout is set to take place, Very good, when it comes to junior positions in Sri Lankan missions abroad, must give the priorities to relatives of MR’S henchmen like Lakshman Hulugalla,Kehliya’s Daughter in NY etc.. and parachuted appointments like Ruwani Cooray, directly from Manila, Philippines, neither she has not passed the foreign service examination nor been recruited to the foreign service through any accepted procedure. However she has been appointed as the second secretary to the Sri Lanka Embassy in France. If they are to be retained anymore, i believe great disrespect for our foreign service and it is not what s in the Manifesto of HE The President.
    Great that the old ratio of 70-30, however one has to understand those days we have had people like Mr.Mangala Munasinghe high commissioner to UK , Mr. Lionel Fernando Ambassodor to France, John De Saram Permanent Representative of Sri Lanka to the United Nations in New York etc. When you look back those are true diplomats who lived in Sri Lanka, understood all the processes, beliefs and always promote Sri lankan Values!. Sri Lanka Should not entertain people like Chris Nonis who dismantled all the Foreign ministry processes and didn’t respect Sri Lankan Values though he had business
    in SL, as a Ambassador or a High Commissioner, even though he speaks fluent English naturally been there in UK over a long time. This is why when he was slapped by Sajin, quarters were happy and said it was well earned by Nonis, though it was not appropriate. Also tongue twisted political scientist like “Dr.” “Educated” on “Borrowed” information.

    This bugger Helugalla has no guts to commit suicide. What I hear is that the Rajapaksas tried to poison him with his drinks to make it appear as suicide.

      Gamini, we are all against Rajapakshes and their all illnatured behaviours ranging to all uncivilized ways. But when reading the comments added to the articles published on Daily Mirror, I feel, there are still significantly more in the society would want Rajapakshe to get back .. how come ? I am not from Lanka but as a person who lived out of the island for the last three decades, I feel, our people would take decades to change their thoughts and minds. They should be carrying inborn studity genes. Most of them apparently not happy with the price reductions of fuel and other commondities as they pledged. Instead they go on criticising why not Rice and other valuble items were not subjec to price reductions ? But these cesspits stayed as if electroshocked until the 8thJanuary. Can you add your thoughts as to why people behave so ? Thanks

        Sinchuappu,

        Popularity of MR from the time he was helped by VP to become President was stage managed. VP paid dearly as VP was double crossed by KP and crowd to go with MR. MR’s popularity was all hyped. Be assured that once MR is exposed in the coming months, he will have no place to hide and his true popularity will be exposed.

          What I ask myself is- how come those embassies to appoint Dy highcommissioners. I dont think that such posts were needed in the past. THere are first officers in the team – but whenever MR thought need to create new positions for his henchmen to create them – was above all norms of External affairs. I also wondered how Shravendra Silva was posted to higher position in UNO – though the guy was known to all as SENIOR ARMY MAN. In the past, external affairs of the island nation was smartely managed – there they had selection criteria based on merits- but MR to make it a MULLERIYAWA under his guidance was not comphresible to anyone.

          Gone were the days that resepcted, educated, cultured won the hearts and minds of the voters. In that way only those respectable men and women became populists. But within last few decades, people have not concerned all the metioned but have voted for anyone with even feloneous nature. Either people or the politicians or both had gone wrong.

          In post election sessions, we today feel people dont even take it serious even if media reveal the gravity of abuses carried out by due to Rajapakshe mismanagement. All these were not because MR was brain sick… but he had carried them out with the mediation of the his supporters.

    Trash alright. The other trash in Sydney Bandula J is in Bondi Beach waiting in line to get his ice cream from Channel 7 weather girl. His desparate attempts to connect with female news reporters in Sydney didn’t work, no carrot to dangle with offers of interviews with big fish like MR and Gota. These glamour women didn’t give a hoot. This is not Sri Lanka man. Where trash visit and sleep with trash.

    Along with Huluhalle, they should recall Bandula J and Yasara. What qualifications do these people have to represent SL. They do more damage than good. Both BJ and Yasara are the laughing stock amongst other diplomats and the locals. EVERYBODY knows how Yasara got her job.

    May be both should claim refugee status in Australia. Dole is rather attractive I hear.

      I don’t know about Bandula but Yasara is a UK graduate and underwent a special diplomatic training conducted by the foreign ministry.

    It was wrong for the Rajapakse government to have appointed Hulugalla as Deputy High Commissioner of Australia a person without any training, experience or background in foreign relations and diplomacy, particularly when Sri Lanka’s High Commissioner to Australia was yet another non-career diplomat.

    Initially when Tishara Samarasinghe, a retired naval chief, was appointed as Sri Lanka’s envoy to Australia,there was an experienced career diplomat Azeez who functioned as the Deputy High Commissioner. Azeez was later replaced by another career diplomat.

    Azeez is an experienced officer coming from a legal background who did credit to Sri Lanka as the Deputy Permanent Representative for Sri Lanka at the United Natins Office in New York when Palihakara was the Permanent Representative. He also served at the UN Geneva Office and Azeez is now Sri Lanka’s Ambassador in Vienna, Austria.

    Azeez and the one who succeeded him were able to run the diplomatic tasks efficiently while the non career High Commissioner Samarasinghe looked after the political interests of Sri Lanka. But when the High Commissioner and his Deputy were both non-career appointees and not experienced in the nuances of diplomacy, Sri Lanka’s standing among the diplomatic community in Canberra was obviously lowered. However, Tisara Samarasinghe should be commended for what he achieved in getting Australia to support Sri Lanka’s position at the UN Human Rights Council. Though it was a kind of pay back on the part of Australia for the assistance Sri Lanka provided in putting a break to the flow of bogus Tamil asylum seekers to Down Under, Samarasinghe being the former naval chief happened to be the right man at the right time for Australia.

    I hope the SL Foreign Minister appoints experienced an career diplomat as the new envoy to Australia

    Siri,

    Thanks for the post. May be Yasara is a UK graduate but from which University? Oxford? Cambridge? Imperial College? I dont think so.I dont think she has qualifications to get into their canteens to work as a tea lady.

    there are UK Universities then there are UK universities. Folks can pay a bit of money and they are happy to take anyone with pulse.

    You also had mentioned some training course. Presumably by the monistry? Really? You think that sort of haphazard crash courses warrant her to be a serious diplomat? Come on mate.

    What got her the post is training by Yoshitha. She should be recalled without causing further embarrassment. She is being laughed at by everyone in Oz.

    Ideally she should resign. But hey, that is what decent people do. These riff raffs like BJ, Yasara, Kehelia’s daughter. Dulles Alapperuma’s cousin etc etc hardly decent are they!

    Yasara has no decency. She just basks in attention, from what I hear Bandula’s and any riff raff who thinks she has been places only because of Yoshitha Rajapaksha. At the end he dumped her with Bandula. He knows BPJ is a ladies man. We saw BPJ’s excitement when she came to Sydney.

    BJ gladly embraced her for the second innings

    and todays Sunday Times(8 Feb) in keeping with its forked tongued policy runs a front page article on lobbying contracts through the Washington embassy – mainly as a smokescreen to cover the connections of the individuals who were directly involved – by focusing only on the rogue monitor. more cover ups can be expected in the future especially in the foreign ministry affairs, as past favors done are paid back by the new incumbents and the so called independent media.

    Yasara has a PhD in Foreign relations from the Very highly ranked Medamulane University.

    Hullugalle was in bed with Sanath Gunatilleke and implicated in the scandal about TV permits and was an attack dog for CBK regime with Sanath the media advisor. Then he switched from UNP to MR and is one of the worst unethical scoundrels you can see

    Jaliya W is a close relative of MR like his brother Prassanna who at least had the decency to resign and move to USA. Jaliya was caught with his hand in the cookie jar and hope Mangy investigates and exposes those deals in public. He was a tea trader who even screwed over his own partners. Then he was successful in his packaging tea and was doing well in LA. He was appointed consul general because of his MR family ties. Then later on this man with zero education, zero knowledge of US foreign policy was made Ambassador in DC. He was well known for traveling all over the place with his family and even renting limosuines at state expense for personal visits. Just a smiling sweet non-entity with ethical issues.

    Udayanga W: also a close relative. Did you ever see the Embassy website to see how appalling the English is and there is no Russian page for Russian businesses or tourists.

    The list is long long and long because even Shiranthi’s relatives and MR’s nieces and nephews from his sisters made off like bandits.
