The Colombo Additional Magistrate Mohammed Sahabdeen was informed yesterday by the CID regarding the threat when producing a report on the progress of the investigation into the killing of businessman Mohamed Shyam Huzamdeen. ASP Shani Abeysekara  informed Court that the statement of the suspect DIG has posed a threat to the lives of the officials who are investigating the DIG‘s criminal activities and his involvement in the murder of the millionaire businessman, as well as their families.

Following investigations conducted into the incident, the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) on June 06 arrested Sub-Inspector Lakmini Bamunusinghe, attached to the office of the DIG Western Province (North), along with three Police Constables (PCs) serving in the DIG’s special unit.

Upon interrogating the arrested police officers, the CID uncovered information regarding the DIG’s alleged involvement in the businessman’s murder .

According to the state run Daily News the CID filing a B report before Additional Magistrate  Shaheed yesterday said suspect Chutta had told them that DIG Vaas Gunawardena was allegedly given Rs. one million out of Rs. 30 million agreed in the contract to kill business tycoon Mohomed Siyam.

Chutta was arrested and Rs. 400,000 was recovered from his possession.

DIG Vaas Gunawardena when arrested admitted that he was a killer (Mama mini maruwek).

        From the european point of view, average srilankens dont respect law and order – this is what I heard lately from many that are in touch with srilanka.

        Serveral EU tourists that regularly travel to Lanka believe that authorities should be better aware of the laws prevailing in the country, before raising questions from its general public when they are not respected. Apart from the fact that average are literate in the country – but their behaviours in general seem to be far from to be considered as CIVILIZED.

        I have no idea whether this change came to light lately onwards, or we had the mode of lanken behaviours since earlier days. To improve the quality of the life, if politicians at all make hope, many in Europe see it above all srilanken hve to have sine quan non -.which none other than rule of law and order.

        Actually that is false. In the US, it takes months if not years to bring a case into court. And there are plenty of murderers running free in US that should be in prison.

        What a rubbish :) :) This is what enews says;//Gota the criminal offence secretary orders to halt investigations into DIG Vaas’ crimes- so Vaas is remanded// ;) ;) so, so far investigations carried out without knowing Gota?? LOL :) If yes Enews is again wrong, coz what I believe is no one can work against Gota’s wish.

        Gota the criminal offence secretary orders to halt investigations into DIG Vaas’ crimes- so Vaas is remanded——-

        (Lanka-e-News-13.June.2013,11.45PM) The defense Secretary of Sri Lanka Gotabaya Rajapakse who has earned an ignominious reputation for his notoriety locally and internationally as a criminal offence Secretary , had exhibiting his demonic traits as always ,ordered the police this morning to discontinue the detention of DIG Vaas Gunawardena who is being interrogated by the CID in connection with the murder of millionaire businessman Mohomed Shyam and the series of abductions and extortions Vaas allegedly committed with his criminal associates.

        Gotabaya had instructed to forward only the report pertaining to Shyam’s murder within three days to the Attorney General’s (AG) Department and to halt the on going investigations .

          Senaka Hetti:
          Would you please re-post your comments in a language that can be understood. Putting in “smileys” hardly makes you literate.

          This seems to follow a pattern where assassins are got rid of when they begin to seem like a liability. There was an account shortly after Eknaligoda’s disappearance about those who actually sent him to the bottom of the sea and the fact that all of them would also be gone because they were a potential risk.

          THAT PROVED 100% ACCURATE WITH EVERYONE OF THOSE ASSASSINS MEETING WITH THEIR DEATHS SHORTLY THEREAFTER.

        May be he has come to the levels, that he feel he has to confess all murders carried out by him so far.. Every multi criminal minded perpetrators do realize their own crimes before their deaths. This is what I read somewhere. That is the reason DIG himself has reacted in this manner. So, keeping him away from the general public is the duty of the rulers. See what will be the next step.

      Who knows, they the authorities would be transported this DIG too to Singapore for a period of 2 years – and make all ways open him to return. In that period particular DIG can take a rest on the cost of tax payers- but the guide of DEFENCE authorities in SL – this was the case with Duminda the silva, though he threatened to lankens, even killed Janathipathi Upadeshakas… So, Gota will make these arrangement soon, making the next miracle – but fooling the tired nation further.

      Duminda^s injuries are reported to be not genuine – there are references about the picture showed by them. It was just to hide him – sent him to S poarian hospital. But Rajitha should make a statement about the incident, on very to day the national TV. People dont knwo whom to trust today. Doctors and Lawyers that have sworn while getting their appointments behave upon to the orders of KILLING minded Defence Secretary.

    Mr Vass Gunawardene is known to me for the last 7 years as I was his wife’s lawyer in two partition cases at Kurunegala District Courts. As a result of these cases all brothers and sisters of his wife got equal shares in both cases(both properties). He consulted me for long hours. He fully believed that the justice would be done in the cases and provided me with all relevant facts. During these years I saw his popularity was growing which I thought would bring him a disaster. Too much popularity brings jealousies among ranks. According our criminal law a suspect is innocent until guilty is proven.

      What are u trying to get at? are u trying to tell us, he is innocent or ” IN NO SENSE” ? which ever the case may be.. he has admitted to being a murderer to NO LESS a person than a sitting ASP of the CID..That’s a Threat right there. That is enough grounds to put him in jail and throw the keys… Goons like these need to not just rot in hell but also in Jail… further he makes a BOLD statement as to saying” YOU cant keep me inside forever” which means he is awaiting a helping hand from the Offensive Secretary who also has a link to murderers… whether in Uniform or otherwise…

      What kind of Lawyer are you. You represented this mans wife in a Partition case and everything went tickety boo.So what the hell has this got to with Vaas Gunewardenes popularity and the resultant jealousies that brought his downfall. The bugger has already called himself a Minimaruwa or murderer and threatened the lives of the ASP and Officers of the CID that questioned him. His wife and son are no saints either the are accused of assaulting a fellow class mate of the son maliciously. A fundamental rights case filed by the victim was postponed till January next year . And the AG at that time was none other than present cheap justice.Mohan Peiris. All mates . What kind of justice could we expect from this bunch of criminals.

    So my dear countrymen… Can we see some evidence arising from these investigations about the ‘white van’ abductions that were happening around the country a few years ago? Or have those victims been forgotten?

    The reason ‘civilized’ societies function despite shortcomings is because legal and civil institutions struggle to function inspite of political interference. In Sri Lanka, civil and legal administrators crave political patronage to further their selfish motives and its you scratch, me scratch 24/7 ! That is how their families benefit from schols, jobs, state lands, govt projects etc etc etc.

    How does one explain every single suspect, when remanded, ends upat National Hospital when you and I cannot get a bed even in an emergency? This is not only blatancy, but criminal impunity and negligence at the same time by the suspect and the prosecutors.

    Who is supposed to represent the people of Sri Lanka?

    According to what I read, although DIG Vaas was taken into custody under PTA the SOD has not signed (or refused to sign) the order under PTA to keep him three months without being produced before courts. My understanding is that, that is why ultimately the CID special team (under direct orders from the IGP) had to go to courts within 72 hours to get him remanded. If anyone thinks that SOD approved all these happened so far, such person(s) is/are in a dream world. If he sanctioned DIG could have been kept him under custody for three months without producing him in courts.

      TRUE.. the “Friend” of Late Shyam who gave the ” Contract” to Vass is being held in custody by an order given by MR….. MR is a VERY close friend of Shyam’s Brother In Law, a VERY reputed Gem Businessman…..who had called MR seeking his help.. read the relavent reports… IF this is true, why not a” self claimed murderer be held without bond in isolated custody” and watch for suicide attempts…

Now, all the abductions, extortions, killings, threats, etc. etc. of all the political opponents and those in the media will be put into Vaas Goowardene’s account and the politicos will become the Saviours of the Nation. Let us wait and see whether Vaas and the others who are in custody WILL BE ALLOWED to come out of all the WHITE VAN ABDUCTIONS AND KILLINGS including that of Lasantha, Prageeth and a number of others.

    Killing for money and positions has become a ‘national mentality’ even an entire household getting involved in plotting a murder and executing it. Politicians, Police and other service personnel, drug dealers, etc. etc. all are on a free killing spree. Who is responsible? Where will this end? The Buddhists who cry of animal slaughter, will they talk of this human slaughter. Perhaps, they will not because their cry on animal slaughter is to serve the political interests of their masters and the human slaughter is also the hand-work of the political interests.

    How come ONLY the affluent criminals and politicians falls sick to be admitted to a hospital immediately after their arrest. There must be a check and balance on the doctor who opined that Vaas was sick to be admitted to a hospital. If found that the doctor’s opinion has no basis, there shall be a charge, not mere disciplinary action, against the doctor for interfering the justice system.
