ICAO Questions Civil Aviation And SriLankan Airlines For Risking Passenger Lives

The International Civil Aviation Organization has written to the Civil Aviation Authority of Sri Lanka seeking explanation for flight safety violations caused by Mihin Lanka‘s controversial flights operated to Seychelles.

MihinH.M.C. Nimalasiri Director General of CAA Sri Lanka has forwarded ICAO’s letter to the management of SriLankan Airlines seeking their answers to complete a letter of response.

Mihin Lanka as an airline has been hell bent on operating the flight Colombo / Seychelles / Colombo under the former Head of Flight Operations Capt. Pujitha Jayakody, risking passenger and crew lives when at times the weather has been reported to be below the legal flight operating limits approved by international bodies. Documentary evidence seen by Colombo Telegraph indicates that Mihin Lanka Flights MJ 707/8 operated on 20th June 2015, 25th August 2015, 29th August 2015, 1st September 2015 and 3rd September 2015, were all illegally operated when the weather was below the minimum safety permitted conditions for the flights to depart from Colombo.

It is alleged that the sole purpose of this operation is to transport a special consignment of perishable cargo containing pineapples to Seychelles over the lives of passengers on board.

“Captain Jayakody has shown a special interest in having these pineapples transported. I am not sure if he has any personal gain in this. This is something similar to when during the days of Air Lanka in the late 80’s, his relatives the Jayakody’s of ‘Shirohana” fame – brother in law of late President R. Premadasa – diverted the Colombo’s / Tokyo flight to Fukuoka just to drop of their flowers”, a pilot speaking to Colombo Telegraph said on the condition of anonymity, as he is not permitted to speak to the media.

SriLankan Airlines now manages the country’s budget airline Mihin Lanka, after the former President Mahainda Rajapaksa was defeated.

The Civil Aviation Authority of Sri Lanka and SriLankan Airlines have now been hit by severe turbulence , as it was only recently that Mihin Lanka’s experienced pilot and former Manager Flight / Ground Safety Capt. Charles Sirimanne was terminated for exposing the violation these safety guidelines to the airline’s management.

Instead of been applauded for his efforts Capt. Sirimanne was terminated by Capt.Pujitha Jayakody the former Head of Flight Operations Mihin Lanka.

According to documents seen by Colombo Telegraph Capt. Sirimanne’s termination is so complicated that four letters that prematurely ended his service was provided by Mihin Lanka and the airlines Director Human Resources Sunil Peiris stating four different reasons.

The initial letter served by the airline’s Manager Human Resources Piyuma Kandaragama dated 10th September 2015 stated that he was terminated with immediate effect with the airline providing him with three months wages. One letter signed by Director Human Resources Sunil Dayalan Peiris states that his contract has ended on the 21st May 2015, when his contract in actuality was to end on the 10th of June 2017. Another letter sent by Piyuma Kandaragama again by the Manager HR strangely states that his contract ended on the 10th of September 2015 which actually that was the date his service was terminated.

According to the affidavit submitted to the Supreme Court by Capt.Pujitha Jayakody, he stated that Capt. Sirimanne sabotaged the airline’s operation when he refused to operate his flight Colombo / Seychelles / Colombo.

“Captain Charles Sirimanne rightfully refused to fly that day when the weather was below the minimum safety permitted conditions” said another pilot of the airline.

When Capt. Charles Sirimanne was contacted by Colombo Telegraph he confirmed that he had sent a 42 page document stating all the facts and subsequent violations committed by the airline directly to ICAO and also his subsequent unlawful termination as a last resort.

“I filed a Fundamental Rights case in the Supreme Court seeking relief for my case and re-in statement into my job. The Supreme Court judge however ruled that there are no grounds for a fundamental case. Another pilot Capt.Vinodh De Silva also refused to operate the same flight on the 20th of June 2016, when the flight weather reports indicated that it was below the legal limits. Capt.Pujitha Jayakody then decided to operate the flight himself and subsequently instructed Capt. De Silva to provide explanation for his refusal to operate that flight. However after Capt. De Silva provided his written explanation Capt.Jayakody replied stating that it was unacceptable. But it was only I who was terminated and not Capt. De Silva. The injustice meted out to me is that even the Civil Aviation Authority of Sri Lanka nor even my airline did hold an inquiry when I requested for one. They just wanted to get me out for highlighting one of their serious flaws. The seriousness of this issue was similar to what Fly Dubai faced recently when it crashed in Russia killing all on board on the 19th of March 2016. I did not fly that sector as it was an illegal operation. As the captain it is my call on the day. I took all safety precautions into consideration before refusing to endanger the lives of all on board. This is a bad, bad, bad, bad precedence that the airline has now set out with my case. I am shocked that even our CEO and Crew Resource Management (CRM) specialist of Emirates Airline fame Capt. Suren Ratwatte and Head of Operations of both SriLankan Airlines and Mihin Lanka Capt. Rajind Ranatunga did not even order an internal inquiry. They are also experienced pilots and they decided to turn a blind eye. I had so much faith in them. This will be a big deterrent for any pilot now to speak up regarding any safety related matters in future, especially regarding the airline. Pilots would want to now secure their jobs than lose it” Capt.Sirimanne said.

Captain Pujitha Jayakody was clearly heard boasting to the President of the Airline Pilots Guild of Sri Lanka Capt.Renuke Senanayake as to how he fixed Capt.Charles Sirimanne.

It was at the Royal Thomian big match on the 10th of March 2016 that Capt. Jayakody barged a conversation Capt. Renuke Senanayake was having with a Colombo Telegraph journalist.

“Dekkade api Capt.Charles Sirimanne te weda deepu heti?” meaning “Did you see how we fixed Capt. Charles Sirimanne?” Capt.Jayakody was heard clearly saying to Capt. Senanayake.

His statement confirmed that the role he played in getting Capt.Sirimanne sacked was part of a greater orchestrated plan, when he, Capt.Jayakody emphasized on the word ‘WE’.

All attempts to contact Capt. Jayakody for a comment proved futile.

      What was more important was not the passengers nor the pineapple but the eagerness to show former President Mahinda Rajapakse that Mihin Air was a viable operation as it was his baby. I am sure Capt. Jayakody was aptly rewarded. These bootlickers care a hoot to the passengers, only themselves.

      I wonder why the MR et al did almost nothing towards the end of their last terms – knowing all the huges sums would be resulted by mismanagement.

      Further head of state to abuse the flights to take all the loads to Rome (remember – even John Amarathunga was boraded, with Kelaniya Mervin and his family together…. drug addited his son was also part of the pilgrims).

      One trip should have costed few millions of dollars to lanken tax payers, but Mahinda Rajakashe took his decisions on all these wihtout any remorses…. how come ?
      Today, most simple duo (MY3 AND RW) have proved them using any linie flights as other passengers do- not wasting that sums…. but people attack the both than the previous man whose delibeate actions wasted billions … making hard up the nation further:

      I dont need months to see the evidence if the current rulers at once intend to put the corrupted bunch in jail for the rest of their lives.

      There ARE ENOUGH PROOFS… There ARE ENOUGH PROOFS… There ARE ENOUGH PROOFS… There ARE ENOUGH PROOFS… There ARE ENOUGH PROOFS… There ARE ENOUGH PROOFS… There ARE ENOUGH PROOFS… There ARE ENOUGH PROOFS… There ARE ENOUGH PROOFS… There ARE ENOUGH PROOFS… There ARE ENOUGH PROOFS… There ARE ENOUGH PROOFS… There ARE ENOUGH PROOFS… There ARE ENOUGH PROOFS… There ARE ENOUGH PROOFS… There ARE ENOUGH PROOFS… There ARE ENOUGH PROOFS… There ARE ENOUGH PROOFS… There ARE ENOUGH PROOFS… There ARE ENOUGH PROOFS… There ARE ENOUGH PROOFS… There ARE ENOUGH PROOFS… There ARE ENOUGH PROOFS…

    A damning report on air safety that comes on the heels of serious losses experienced by Sri Lankan airlines over the years and the recent crash of flydubai in Russia where fatigued pilots were attempting to land their aeroplane in lousy weather. All airlines have appointed ‘accountable officers’ and I would presume that the shop lifter Jayakody is one of them ? Is this how such a character is supposed to act when one of the airlines captains decides to ground a plane in view of safety ? So he operated the flight and violated all safety regulations while the Civil Aviation AUTHORITY went to sleep ? Why should this country deserve such irresponsible persons holding high office ?
    There are more questions than answers as the Govt too has shown its weakness in handling even simpler matters.

    It is a well established fact that the rogue pilot Jayakody has never visited Singapore after his shop lifting scenario where there’s a court case pending. How such a person qualifies to hold office is mind boggling and it indirectly confirms the rogues ARE tolerated !

    The new CEO Suren himself is no magician having struggled at UL during his initial period with UL and then made to climb the ladder at EK only due to seniority there. Whoever thought of getting him to be the CEO of a struggling airlines needs to have his head examined.

    Thank you ICAO for taking action where all others had failed miserably.

      “So minister Kabir and PM Ranil, what action are you guys hoping to take on this very very serious matter ? “

      Ha Ha Haa. Just laugh it off. It will soon be forgotten. But don’t forget to export more pineapples. We need to raise the allowances of our politicians and give them more duty-free luxury vehicles.

    In the first place Ranil should have closed this useless Mihin Lanka Operation.I remember Ranil said so when he was contesting elections. What is wrong with our Prime Minister?.He has forgotten what he said is going to do when elected. Instead he is increasing taxes and adding burden to ordinary citizens to run this useless white elephants. I heard Mihin Lanka has once again extended the contracts of some of their consultants who are nearing the age of 70’s. I wonder what the Ministers Kabir Hashim and Eran Wickramaratne is doing? The so called Mihin Lanka has many retired consultants who were appointed by Rajapaksa/Sajin Vass duo still warming chairs and taking a handsome pay packet end of every month.

      After 9 years in operations why should Mihin Lanka still have so called consultants ? There are Heads and Senior Managers looking after vital areas together with the staff seconded by SriLankan.Are there any specific areas where neither Mihin nor SriLankan have the necessary expertise.

      Could someone enlighten us on these “consultants” and their role please.Tax payers of this country has a right to know their Names and relevant expertise

      With so many consultants around it was hilarious to note an Advertisement that appeared on a weekend Sinhala newspaper where there were advertising flights to Chennai and MADRAS as well !!! I am sure there must a dumb consultant who looks after advertising or corporate communications as well perhaps.

      The least the Authorities could do is to get rid of all these self proclaimed Consultants immediately for I am sure without exception each one of these consultants must have survived all along by kowtowing every CEO/General Manager that came along since they reached retirement age some years ago

      Closing Mihin is not an option.how and why it was started is now water under the bridge.The passengers are mostly lower end and low fare paying leisure passengers.Take Mihin(MJ) marketing and selling away from Sri Lankan.MJ must run a dynamic low cost operation away from Sri Lankan, in a manner that a Low cost airline should run.One CEO running legacy and a Low cost airline is wrong chemistry.Take out people who has the Sri Lankan experience and the culture.it should be given to a change exposed,experienced, Sri Lankan.Sell every white space on the hull and on board and make it a vibrant low cost carrier.compete aggressively with all operating carries including Sri Lankan,Have our traditional hospitality mixed with picnic mood and be a trend setter in the region.Not giving more ideas , as knowledge and experience is costly.Finally in two years, let’s open doors for the future generations,to step out to the world after proving our worth.keep out stinking & damaging politics as far as possible from operations and processes.

    Closing MIHIN is not the answer my friend, it’s UL that’s bleeding profusely. The story of old MIHIN was buried after it was relaunched in 2008 or2009 and it has done quite well compared to its step sister (from an Arab father) and is now making modest nett profits. Their service is much better than UL but you will only know it if you flown in both lately.

    Remove a the crooks, a few incompetent idiots and the fossils from there and it will make more money but that’s not going to happen as Ranil likes to fondle some of them ?

      Closing down anything is not a solution, however, if ICAO blacklists UL, that will be the end of all UL flights to EU. That will be the last nail in the coffin for a national carrier.
      BTW, Exporting Pineapple using drones is a possibility. When ICAO finalizes its SARPS for RPAS, Pilot Jayakody can fly aircraft from his home while sipping a Pina Colada.

    If the case cannot be regarded as a fundamental issue, then Labour Tribunal must hear it. Govt. should establish a tribunal to inquire disputes concerning crew of civil aviation and Maritime affairs. Always we find one rotten egg everywhere. They cause the stink. This kind of discrimination and mischief is making the country results in various losses. Finally we hurt a qualified pilot for correct decision making. What an[Edited out] Pujitha is.

    This is nothing new. Air Lanka, Sri Lankan, and Mihin have all been the de facto ‘private’ airline of whoever has been in government. There was some semblance of ‘order’ when Emirates ran the show, but once they were shown the door for not accommodating the Liberator and his entourage, the rot set in and these airlines have been in the clutches of a procession of cowboys brought in to do the bidding of the God in residence.

    Flowers, puppy dogs, pineapples, girlfriends, best friends and free loaders are all grist to the mill.

    WE the People pay for all this.

    The show will go on till some with cojones, bites the bullet and pulls the trigger. Truth is cojones are hard to come by these days!

    This type of “Wild Ass Law” becomes LAW when the Professionals becomes “Political Stooges” and “Pawns” in the hands of politicians. According to some thinkers of centuries ago, such “Professionals” were very correctly identified as “BASTARDS” and discarded from functioning in public services, and so should be today. If, as reported this flight was operated by the Cpt. Pujitha Jayakody on the refusal of another pilot due to technical reasons, he (Capt. Jajakody) has done an “unpardonable” violation of civil aviation law and should have been taken to task immediately. Instead of that, the very pilot who refused to operate due to technical infringements (if operated) has been punished and services terminated by the Human Resources. So now, the readers can decide, who and who are the “BASTARDS”.

    Now coming back to Capt.Charles Sirimanne’s case that failed in courts, in my opinion, is due to “mishandling” by some advisors, in that, he should have properly speaking filed a case for “wrongful termination” and “claim for compensation” for loss of career and NOT on violation of Human Rights. I know of a such case, where a then Chief Executive Officer of Air Lanka (an expatriate) whose services were terminated before the contract came to an ended, filed a case in courts on the grounds of “Loss of Career” and received judgement in his favor and was paid US$ 100,000.00 (the figure subject to correction) that I believe was equivalent to a year’s salary and other emoluments. Capt. Sirimanne had very good grounds to fight his case and most importantly to EXPOSE the BASTARDS in the Administration of Mihin Air to the public. He (Capt. Sirimanne) and we LOST. At least NOW this present case of Civil Aviation Authority calling for explanation must be well handled to expose these BASTARDS to maintain the SAFETY and DIGNITY of Aviation Industry of Sri Lanka.

    The biggest culprit as I see it is the Civil Aviation Authority of Sri Lanka and more so it’s Director General/CEO who barely passed his University Degree, got a job with the CAA and climbed up the latter with no Aviation Background. The CAA has become a retirement home for Airline Pilot’s, Cabin Crew and Air Traffic Controllers whose sole aim is to gain a form of income enjoy the benefits and perks that come with the job and have an afternoon Siesta in Air conditioned comfort while warming there reclinable chairs. The CAA is the most corrupt government institution next to the Customs, Income Tax and Immigration departments.

    H.M.C. Nimalsiri the DGCA/CEO is know to have accepted a fully paid Apartment as a Bribe from a local Cargo Operator apart from the many perks he receives from Sri Lankan Airlines. He is known to have accepted bribes in Cash from many domestic air operators for various approval. Therefore, if Aviation and the airline industry is to be restructured it should begin with the Bribery Commission Investigating him and his immediate removal.

    Next is His able Side Kick Susantha Silva who stands accused of selling exam papers and there answer script to licensing candidates. Some of those pilots who obtained there ATPL fraudulently are still flying for Sri Lankan Airlines. Hereto the Bribery Commission should step in to investigate how a government servant could amass so much wealth within such a short time at the CAA. The licensing fraud was however blamed on a small fry in the Authority who worked in collusion with Susantha Silva, but now terminated while the Fat Cat still remains and collects a share from domestic operators. Both Nimalsiri and Susantha have been instrumental in covering up big time Flight Safety Violations perpetrated by the likes of Druvi Perera, Pujitha Jayakody and so many other senior pilots while investigating minor Violations of more newer license holder and imposing unreasonable punishments based on investigations that are of a preliminary nature. There are many a series Violations that have been swept under the carpet of the CAA after large sums of money exchanging hands. THIS MUST STOP!!!!
    The ICAO involvement is a welcome sign if Sri Lanka’s reputation in aviation is to be safeguarded. Hereto once again Nimalsiri has turned to his friends at Sri Lankan Airlines to draft a reply to ICAO regarding the Mihin Lanka Violations which goes to show that he is at a loss as to how to reply them. The government should take note and immediately remove the two mentioned and also one other by the Name of Paragraph Dissanayake who is jobless and being paid a hefty salary for absolutely no reason as a Senior Director while he awaits his turn to be the Default DGCA/CEO.

    It was indeed a big mistake to appoint a man who stole women’s Panties from a shop in Singapore as the Head Of Operations at Mihin, Incidentally Suren Ratwatte did wanted to terminate Pujitha Jayakody’s services if not for the intervention of the Chairman’s (Ajith Dias) wife who happens to be a very close friend of Pujitha’s wife being former Stewardess’s working together.

    As in politics the Bloody Rogues always find a way to survive, only time will tell.

    It is time we stopped hiring idiots to head our national carriers, and appointed a well qualified, experienced professional, who will not stoop to dishonesty, run the airlines efficiently, and make sure the airlines are not used for personal gain, for anyone, including the President of this country. This is abuse of power, and treating our national carriers as if it was their own. We know what resulted from that during the years of the last regime.
    UL is now in dire straits, and going bankrupt. The carrier that once did well, is on the way down to the ground.

    Are there any qualified professionals left in Sri Lanka, who we can trust to do the right thing for our nation?
    It seems hard to find decent Sri Lankans these days, who will work for the good of the country, not for their ow personal gain.

      Manel Oh dear, there are few of them,honest,with unblemished integrity just watching and keeping calm,with huge experience in many areas. Simple! look for someone who senior managers and some bull shitting heads, are so feared of straight forwardness,calls a spade a spade and with ruthless, aggressive attitude, but still loved by staff.

        Shariff,

        you are right.It is not that we have a dearth of good capable people to manage this Airline but they would rather prefer to stay out of the limelight and would not beg to be recognized.

        At the initial stages of Mihin there were few ex UL(retired) Senior staff who were in charge of key areas such as Finance/Commercial/Revenue Management/Engineering and Flight Operations.Notwithstanding the political nature of the Airline and its Board of Management these key officials were indeed professionals in their selected areas who were able to contribute significantly.Most of them served their tour of duty and left on their accord making room for the next generation to carry on.

        However there were notably few even after reaching mandatory retirement Age managed to hang around assuming the role of “consultant” sometimes not even in their areas of expertise simply by kowtowing their Bosses.Mihin’s interests would be served best if these self serving Consultants are ridden off at the earliest

    yeow!!!!! what is this now?
    Pineapple express? ha! ha! Good one Vishwajith !
    This Mihin and Sri Lankan Airlines topic is becoming a bigger jokes as the days unfold.
    A shoplifter providing a sworn testimony to the Supreme Court? buhahahaha!
    Even a bigger joke!
    From news on the ground it is revealed that Capt. Pujitha or Capt. Annasi shall we call him from now? has had a grudge with Capt.Charles after he exposed a big racket he was involved in by bringing Indian pilots to Mihin and giving them jobs. Capt. Annasi deprived many local cadet pilots the opportunity of these jobs. Thereafter he wanted Capt. Charles out as the Manager Flight/Ground Safety.
    So they got an incompetent pilot who was known to have burst the aircraft tires on landing In India to replace him.
    This joker is easily controlled by Capt. Annasi and they continue on their merry way.
    What a vicious and wicked man this Mr.Pineapple is.
    He boasts that he has 38 years of flying experience, but for the last 27 years he has avoided going to Singapore as an arrest warrant awaits him still for shoplifting whilst in on duty.
    The telex sent by the Singapore station manager informing of his arrest could be seen if you click this link -https://www.colombotelegraph.com/index.php/mihin-lanka-singapore-shoplifter-capt-jayakody-investigates-documents-leak/

    Thanks you Turbulence for giving us a clearer picture of who this Annasi is. Yes that’s the well know rogue who had stolen allowances of his crew, played out a bank teller in Singapore (correct me if wrong) and bought a Rolex watch from the illgotten money and still survived as a Head of a department ! The idiots who protect such types should be investigated for aiding and abetting. Isn’t there a law to prevent such crooks from holding an position in govt institutions?
    It was only Mr Harry J as chairman who had the balls to strip him of everything and then he ran off to Jet Airways to avoid is wrath. Now he’s back to rob again as the current chairman has no balls and knows only apparels ! Who is the idiot who put him there ? Ranil ! After all they are his school buddies aren’t they ? That was once his downfall and it will again be the same.
    MIHIN still has a few high calibre captains who will stand no nonsense but they are sidelined by those who fear their abilities and honesty. Isn’t that the problem all over ?

      Cabn,
      It was not a bank teller it was a money exchange in Singapore instead.
      It was like winning the lottery for him when during the days of not having CCTV cameras. He walked in to change a 1000 US $ when the teller gave him change in Singapore dollars equivalent to 10,000 US dollars. He obviously did not keep the cash with him but bought the watch as quite rightly you have said. The Money Exchange guy wrote two letters to him which is in circulation. He never returned the money but kept on denying it.
      The thing is Singapore seems to be his favourite play ground.
      At he Crew hotel once again he checked in before his First Officer and Second Officer during Tri Star days.Here again the new cashier gave him the meal allowance envelopes that belonged to his two co-pilots.Here again there are two more letters sent in by the hotel manager asking him to return the money or else it was going to be deducted from the new cashier’s salary. He never returned that either. Tyrell Senanayake or Anil Jayasinghe the co-pilots may confirm this story. I hope someone publishes those letters to prove what an untrustworthy person Capt.Annasi is. A ‘Right Royal Ruckus’ indeed.It is over 27 years since he has set foot in Singapore. I hope one day a flight he is travelling on gets diverted to Singapore for justice to be meted out. Karma can be a bitch and it has been in the past.

        I ve been working for this Airline for the last 10 years and mow with a Middle Eastern operator. I ve heard enough of stories, where Captain take matters to their hand.

        Capt Charles was a an outstanding academic with a Phd ) and obtained a Scholarship for the PPl and CPL , I have seen somany times how incompetent guys getting in as Cadets and how they propel and i ve seen how unlucky Cadets young aspiring pilots leave the Company during Training as well.

        May I recall a one case where due to Fantastic journalism an Incompetent CPL holder was bared and asked to leave the Company during the Simulator sessions some time back, later on the training Operations got to know the forged documents this person had from USA and CAA kept quite about it even though BLUE DIAMOND AVIATION FROM TEXAS had faxed forged flying hours so many times hence the CAA had given him the SL CPL and IR , then the University grants commission was alerted to double check this person 2 year degree certificate obtained from the Uk ( since he did not have A/L ) it was found out the college had been black listed. Once investigated they found the Type rating exam had also been copied and the Cadet Batch mates had confirmed the answers were given to him by a another Cadet who flies for the airline written in a eraser during the exam where this CPL holder had no Technical knowledge to hold a license.

        But once he was asked to leave with the Company after some time he was seen at Mihin Lanka interview by few Pilots which alerted the media and CAA , then came the story where Pujitha Jayakody had fixed the intervene to accommodate him to Mihin Lanka for the paid Type and line program. for $$$$$ , this had happened with the knowledge of Capt Druvi perera as well since he was over looking the Flight Operations of Mihin and Sri Lankan both. So how on earth a forged black listed pilot was trying to get in to Mihin , it was also highlighted the same CPl holder was kicked out of the Rathmalana Flying school trying to copy the PPL exams and he was bared from Rathmalana and then he went to America to obtain the CPL ,

        This basically shows any Harry TO,m dicky can become a pilot and there could be more and more people managed to get in with the blessings of Senior Captains and flying now .
