If Gotabaya Is Jailed & Mahinda Is Disbarred

By Dayan Jayatilleka

Dr. Dayan Jayatilleka

Henry Kissinger and Oliver Stone, who had very little in common, are both credited with originating the saying “ just because you are paranoid it doesn’t mean they aren’t out to get you” and its variation which goes “even if you are paranoid you can have real enemies”. The same goes for garrulous gasbags. Just because someone is a garrulous gasbag it doesn’t mean they can’t tell the truth or aren’t telling the truth. Minister Rajitha Senaratne is possibly the biggest gasbag in the Yahapalana cabinet, followed at some distance by Sarath Fonseka, Champika Ranawaka and Mangala Samaraweera though not in any particular order. And yet, when Rajitha Senaratne says, as The Island reported as its page one lead story of February 1st (yesterday) that that Gotabaya Rajapaksa will be arrested and jailed after February 10th, I do not dismiss it as pure, if characteristic, garrulity. The report says that he made the statement at a public rally in Matara. I believe Rajitha is telling the truth.

Now in the first place, this makes matters easier for politicians and most importantly, voters. We the citizens know full well, what is to come if the UNP is not defeated or succeeds in forming a coalition with the official SLFP, on/after Feb 10th. Speaking in Vavuniya, the Prime Minister said that Trincomalee port and the oil tank farm will be “developed” with the assistance of a Singapore firm (hopefully not one that Arjuna Mahendran works for), and went on to say that “with Tamil Nadu progressing rapidly, such a development of Trincomalee will directly benefit the North and East, including Vavuniya”.

Meanwhile the TNA election manifesto calls for the implementation of the Oslo agreement which Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe entered into with the Tigers in 2002, pledging “internal self-determination” through “federalism”. This comes after MA Sumanthiran’s Jaffna speech several weeks back in which he explained to a Jaffna audience that the proposed new Constitution goes “beyond federalism”. Now this is the very TNA that the Yahapalana administration has empowered by conferring it the important status of the Opposition in parliament, though it has only 16 seats and the Joint Opposition has over three times as many.

The drafter of the LTTE’s ISGA proposal, Prof Sornaraja, Singapore based brother-in-law of ex-President Kumaratunga’s  ex-advisor on ethnic affairs, addressed a seminar in Jaffna a few weeks back , at which Chief Minister Wigneswaran called for an “international legal framework” for the Tamil Question, and pledged to have this raised at the upcoming March session of the UNHRC in Geneva at which, as the good Chief Minister reminded his audience, the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights is to present his interim progress report on Sri Lanka’s implementation of the 2015 resolution.

Meanwhile Finance Minister Mangala Samaraweera has rolled out a Budget which envisages the lifting of the land reform laws and permitting foreign companies to buy large tracts of land on this small island (there’s no guarantee that the said companies won’t be fronts for LTTE black money flows through Diaspora conduits). The UNP’s Ajith Perera says the new Constitution will be fast-tracked after February 10th.  Prime Minister Wickremesinghe himself says that in accordance with the PRECIFAC recommendations former President Rajapaksa will lose his civic rights not merely for seven years but for the rest of his lifetime. This is echoed by Champika Ranawaka, Rajitha Senaratne and the SLFP’s Mahinda Samarasinghe. Now, Rajitha Senaratne says Gotabaya will be arrested and jailed after February 10th.

Not every day does anyone do us citizens favours for free. These are our lucky day. All these statement do us four favours at least.

Firstly, we all know what we are voting for if we vote for the UNP. Secondly, we now know why the UNP wants to remove Mahinda’s civic rights and jail Gotabaya. The UNP wants to knock out Mahinda and Gotabaya as the next logical step of the process of making the TNA the Opposition, and precisely because it wants to implement the larger program it has just laid out: giving Trincomalee to the Indians and thereby empowering the North and East; implementing a new Constitution which grants power over land to the provinces and is  a remix of the LTTE’s ISGA drafted by Prof Sornaraja; allowing foreign companies, including Tamil Nadu and Diaspora based companies to own vast tracts of land on this island. Mahinda and Gotabaya have to be removed, if Sri Lanka is to be dismantled and sold off.

Thirdly, we know what to do if we disagree with such a future for our country: vote against the UNP in massive numbers on February 10th and as long as Ranil remains the leader. Fourthly, we know what we’ll be voting against if we vote against the UNP.

Mahinda and Gotabaya, in that hierarchic order and chronological sequence, are symbols of national resistance and are powerful obstacles to the UNP’s ‘Grand Sale’ of Sri Lanka. If this unpopular government, the unpopularity of which will be clear on Feb 10th, chooses to make the same mistake as a UNP in crisis did after the August 1953 Hartal, and take a tougher, harder line (appointing Sir John Kotelawela, on the advice, among others, of Prime Minister Wickremesinghe’s father Esmond) rather than taking a step or two back, then the same outcome will prevail as it did then: the social polarization will increase exponentially and the eventual electoral outcome will shift in a more radical nationalist direction.

Given that they are widely perceived as saviours of the nation from the terror of the Tamil Tigers, if Mahinda and/or Gotabaya are subject to victimization and legalized repression it will not be mere social antipathy as in 1955-56, but active anger and hatred that the UNP government stacks up against it as in 1988. Today there is no Ranasinghe Premadasa as PM, candidate and President to save it from the “fire and the fury” of rampant nationalist populism.

If anything swings the choice in favour of Gotabaya as Presidential candidate rather than a more moderate progressive candidate, it will be a spell in jail. If anything radicalizes—politically and ideologically ‘weaponizes’ Sinhala nationalism, and tilts the balance between the progressive populist and radical nationalists in the growing Opposition camp, it will the arrest of Gotabaya. If anything assures a huge swing of Sinhalese of all parties including the urban UNP in his favour at the election of November 2019, it will be a stint of legalized martyrdom. If anything makes the post-UNP regime of 2019-2020 more determinedly Sinhala nationalist, it will be a defensive retaliation for the affront of an attack Mahinda and Gotabaya are symbols of national resistance and are powerful obstacles to this grand sell out of Sri Lanka.

If anything guarantees that the defeated UNP of 2019-2020 faces a “Jacobin” outcome, and signals that the Greens should already get their green cards, it is a move to disenfranchise Mahinda Rajapaksa and jail Gotabaya Rajapaksa. I belong to the generation that saw on Western TV, the South Vietnamese equivalent of Ranil’s UNP, kicked off US helicopters while clinging to their skids during the evacuation of April 30th 1975.

    Dayan,
    You are trying to vomit as much as racism to bring back the fake patriotric Mahinda family run white van murderers into power to complete the robbery they were planned earlier. Gotapaya and Mahinda Rajapakse should be jailed for what they did illegally and unlawfully against the law of the nation. It is sad those so called left now vomit racism in order to get ministerial posts under Mahinda Kingdom. Not only Mahinda & Gotapaya but people like you also should be jailed for creating hatred against Tamils.

        Shenal,

        Tamils are not much different from Sinhalese, so they can be dealt with latter. That is how (He thought Sinhalese are not much different from Tamils so gave priority to get out Hindian Army) leader Pirapaharan chased away the Hindian occupying army when all the Rapist Lion brands were hiding is their camp dens. (The Rapist army may not have been interested in fighting with Hindian army because it was males only troops? No women were in that for the Rapist army give any motivation?) But the dangerous dragon is conjuring stories to encircling the entire south and flying the Red Army Dragon flags, 70 years after 1948, when the Union flag came down.

        If still any Vijaya’s grandma’ husband’s blood left in the Rapist Army, can it do the same thing to Red Army, what Tigers did to Hindian army?

      “GAME OF SHAPE (cover up) TO BE, OR NOT TO BE!”

      This Maithripala Ranil government has been dragging all the Rajapaksas Criminal cases to buy time to cover them up or to make sure they get a guilty verdict!?

      In time the whole world will know what this Government used the additional time required to deal with the Rajapaksas crimes…

      The end result of the Rajapaksas Criminal cases will tell us a lot about the true nature of this government…

      These days you find many Rajapaksas proxies who seem to have suddenly become rich!

      Investigations into how these people got rich overnight will lead to all the evidence this Government needs if they are serious about cracking down on the Rajapaksas!?

      This is just one line of investigation of many other possibilities…

      Dayan Jayatilleka the public racist war monger

      ” at which Chief Minister Wigneswaran called for an “international legal framework” for the Tamil Question,”

      Smart asses thought they had got away with murder, it seems its not going to be so after all. Had these smart patriotic asses genuinely approached the war crime issues through a Truth and Reconciliation Commission UNHRC could have been stopped from all its deliberations. The clever dicks being the victors of the war could not bear the thought of admitting to their own killing spree, apologizing for it, and begging pardon for their crimes, as the process would have genuinely absolved their crimes. .
      What is happening now is the war crime issues are being passed on to the next generation who didn’t have anything to do with war crime in the first place and are expected carry the burden and the guilt through no fault of their own.

      “UNP wants to remove Mahinda’s civic rights and jail Gotabaya.”

      If those war criminals could impeach Shirani Bandaranayake the Chief Justice of Sri Lanka under false charges why not those two crooks and hangmen? And they are also responsible for numerous murders under their watch.

      As we have seen and heard in the past 70 or so years there has never been a day lacking paranoids.

        Native mate you and I both remember the chain of events that happened after Mrs B’s civic rights were removed by JR, the beginning of the end of prosperity which started by JR himself with his free market economic policies. The ’83 pogrom, followed by rise of the terrorist groups A to Z in the North, followed IPKF, followed by second rising of the JVP with a vengeance, followed government sponsored (?) extra judiciary killings, followed by rise of the LTTE, followed by assassination of Athulathmudali, Dissanayake and President Premadasa…looking forward to those years to revisit are you? Not me mate, I am planning to move to the moon (will send you some rice from there)

        The problem of Old Royals is they don’t have a party. If Slap Party does extraordinarily good, Old King may want to take it over. But he knows that if take over that is the end of his dream of he or his family becoming EP or PM. Splitting SLFP is only a coffin making for Old Royals. They will not have any exist from that mistake. So if Slap Party wins Old King would not take it over, but would show it to new King and demand for the SLFP leadership. Say it achieved, and then Slap will be to left for natural death. This is LG election. So one cannot find out Muslims and Tamils mind here. If New King had given away the leadership and break up with UNP then 2015 is the last election he became as EP. There is no point in the standing for a second term. Say Slap gets only a moderate victory, and then it is safe for New King return back to UNP, instead of two boats sail. The Old King will not get the SLFP leadership. If it completely loses, only a donkey will try to take over the party, other than GLP. It will be gifted to GLP exclusively and GLP will it to die. Anything can happen, but Old Royals are not going to have a party. So they are trying to become more and more aggressive and violent. Internally, in Old Royals team, also they are becoming aggressive. They have chased away their presidential candidate out of the country and campaigning for Slap Party. Isn’t it an obvious comedy? If the Old Royals team wants the Slap Party victory itself is suspicious here. They blame it was the New King played the game through Dudley to chase him out. But I doubt it.

      Funny why this Government hasn’t still cracked down on Thirukumar Nadesan!?

      Is it true he knows where the Rajapaksas stolen money is!?

      Is this money coming into development projects all around Colombo and other parts of the country!?

      Mr. Thirukumar Nadesan is the director of some interesting projects in Sri Lanka.

      The core seems to be Sliding under the radar while the media gets the public attention to a few select stories from time to time carefully avoiding anything that can lead to real action against the Rajapaksas.

        Very well investigated. You are absolutely correct. They (Jarapassa Clan) have been hoodwinking the poor, uneducated & ignorant majority Sinhalese population with the help of so called ‘Patriotic, Buddhist orange robed thugs and fraudsters for more than a decade. The flow of stolen money in to the island, including the Gold from the poor tamil people in the north (shipped to Japan), tsunami loot to name a couple are evidence but has reached a bottle-neck with the recent declaration by the IMF, ‘Sorry Lanka ‘as one of the countries in the international money laundering list.
        By the time all these projects with the looted money are completed (if that happens) , the ‘Jarapassa’ family will be enjoying the comforts of the ‘AVEECHIYA’. Metta! Suwapath Weva.

        Thirukumar Nadesan who accompanied Ranil to Dr Mahinda’s official residence on the fatal night, early morning 9 Jan 2015, is an old Royalist and a close friend of Ranil. He is also married to Dr Mahinda’s niece.

        However Ranil and Mahinda have mutual interest in their relationship. Its like you scratch my back and I scratch yours.

        “They (Jarapassa Clan) have been hoodwinking the poor, uneducated & ignorant majority Sinhalese population with the help of so called ‘Patriotic, Buddhist orange robed thugs and fraudsters for more than a decade.”

        Its not true that Dr Rajapaksa invented everything you pointed out above.
        The hoodwinking started immediately after granting independence by the Brits in 1948 with the disenfranchisement of hard working upcountry workers. Then the 1956 Sinhala only language act, Chapter II in the constitution, the 1983 patriotic riots in 1983, war for peace etc.
        However a tradition Dr Mahinda Rajapaksa (LLD + PhD x 3) took to dizzying heights and made it into a fine art form and enshrined it into island’s heritage.

      RE: If Gotabaya is Jailed and Mahinda Disbanded.

      That will be fine for the people, and victims.

      What is even better is if they are hung for their murders and killings.

      After all Gota wanted Sarath Fonseka hanged, and Mahinda put him in jail for a few years.

      Rajapaksa government’s disturbed defence secretary Gotabaya says ‘Sarath Fonseka will be hung”

    I think the concern is muslims. they build Nasiristhans every where in the Island. I heard Rushad Bathiuddin asked Lands from Mullativu saying that was abandoned lands that he was asking. But, Bathiuddin could not show any documents to prove it. Besides, else where they have got permanent deeds for lands that they never occupied because Maithripala is trying to be a Saint.

      Anyway, Kiriella’s only time he visited a University was when he wanted to go to Galaha via roads on the ground. It was revealed when some one asked whether he had been to the university. further to that he has said he has a Diploma (two years ?) from the colombo Law college.

      He fears of Old Brother Prince coming back to Lankawe. He is probably trying to guess that he organizing something like past white van transportation. He knows, whatever the Old Royal Family does Ranil and New King will be protecting them. You may remember what happened to Dilrukshi. So Thero De Silva will not be promoting Old Son Prince for a while, until he perceives Old Brother Prince is a threat. It will be only the Old King is doing that. By witnessing something in Paris the tongue was pulled and can’t talk.

    “Probing the abduction of Tamil youth in the capital city of Colombo and its suburbs during the height of the war, Sri Lanka’s Criminal Investigation Department (CID) has arrested yet another Navy intelligence officer charging him of being in-charge of dumping dead bodies at sea as part of the well-organised abduction operation.

    After evading arrest for several years, Muthuwhennadige Aruna Thushara Mendis attached to the Sri Lankan Navy’s Special Intelligence Unit and its Special Boat Squadron (SBS) was arrested on January 23, 2018 by the CID team and produced before Colombo Fort Magistrate who ordered him to be kept in remand custody.

    Mend

    Commodore DKP Dassanayake
    is is the ninth Navy officer to be arrested in connection with the enforced disappearance of the 11 people in and around Colombo in October 2008.

    Gunsite underground camp

    According to the CID, Mendis had been in charge of a boat which provided support to this special intelligence team, especially in disposing of bodies, while serving at the Parakrama Naval base in Colombo from 2008 to 2009.

    Officers directly involved in this investigation said that these dead bodies were tied tightly to concrete pillars before being dumped into the deep sea. “This was to ensure that these dead bodies would never float at sea unlike in early 1990”.

    His arrest followed the arrest of another naval intelligence officer Kasthuriarachchige Gamini a week ago this month.”

    Does this sound familiar?

    “This is not a complete picture. Furthermore, the danger is that it contributes to a disturbing revisionist movement that recently prompted ICTY chief prosecutor Serge Brammertz to warn that in Serbia “the denial of genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes is almost commonplace today. Convicted war criminals are being publicly lauded as heroes.”

    Sibley bases his statement that Milosevic was “exonerated” on an ICTY judgment handed down March 24 in a completely separate case in which former Bosnian Serb leader and commander-in-chief Radovan Karadzic was convicted of genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes. Karadzic’s crimes involved extermination, murder, deportation, terror, targeting of civilian populations and hostage-taking in Srebrenica, Sarajevo and other municipalities.

    Inside the condemnatory judgment were several paragraphs discussing Milosevic’s alleged participation with Karadzic in a joint criminal enterprise along with other Serbian leaders to form a “common plan” essentially to “cleanse” Bosnia and Herzegovina of Muslims.”

    Dr Ranil is already in trouble.
    He only visits Muslim and Tamil Electorates..
    And says he will never ever leave Sira and his SLFP….
    Dr Ranil must be in love with them..
    Sira’s mate and Heavy Hitter Dilan says he will never let Sira to strip his ex Prez of his Civil Rights. let alone put him behind bars.
    Although Dr Ramil says he will never leave Sira, Dilan’s comments must be hurting Dr Ranil’s Buddies Rajitha, Silver Spoon Sujeeva, Digital Harin, Mangalan and Marikkar.
    Especially Mangalan, when Sampathar , Diospora and the NGos sgueeze his scrotum ,demanding that Rajapakasas must be put behind bars for killing the LTTE and Pirahaparan.
    As for Gota, it will be good for his already overwhelming popularity to become unassailable by spending a few months in Welikada.
    Will our brave Army Boys, who took care of Pirahaparan and his Murderers tolerate the UNP sakkiliyas punishing their brave leader is a another matter..

      Will our brave Army Boys, who took care of Pirahaparan and his Murderers tolerate the UNP sakkiliyas punishing their brave leader is a another matter. I heard Ex State Secretary John Kerry is warming up for the next presidential election. Unlike Trump, he is a nagging guy, he might start to call the Temple Tree House in the early morning while the Old King sleeping restfully.

      Instead of that, if you leave alone Batalanda, he will take care of him. Now the croaking is not about Old King’s UN electric Chair, but about Civic Rights. So the talk of Batalanda Commision recommendation to remove Ranil’s Civic rights is emerging.

      The Daily Mirror reported to day ” The Ministry of Foreign Affairs is in the process of restructuring its foreign missions and as a result several key positions in Sri Lanka’s vital and influential diplomatic hot spots would be changed, the Daily Mirror learns. “

      Do you think Bandula Jeyesekera and Dayan the public racist would get a second chance?
      What is going to happen to all those war crime suspects who were lucky to have been posted to foreign missions?

    another stupid statement from Dayan; he states ….” now “LTTE front companies can buy land in Sri Lanka now that Mangala has in his budget allowed foreign companies to do so”…what a stupid statement first of all . Mara and Gota gave dual citizenship to some rich Tamils who sponsored them. Apparently those who applied for dual citizenship during Mara’s time need to go through a 1 to 1 interview with Gota….to grease his hands?
    now dual citizenship is open to all Sri Lankna diaspora…they dont need a change in law to buy land in Sri Lanka ?

    secondly North and East is Tamil’s land anyway including Trinco….they dont need to buy it back?

    shameless Dayan is now restoring to fake news….

    Some one said, Ranil saying that his better half was handling every penny of their income. So that, he had to depend on his party leader position for every luxury he had in life. Now, it looks like he is going to lose that.

    I heard Ravi the LIAR saying that he does not have an inch of lands in Sri lanka. But some one who knows very well says that RAVI the LIAR GRABBED an AUSTRLIAN – Apple orchard from Gamini Dissanayake who, probably, received as a gift. That was his beginning and one Rathwatta had managed that orchard.I think they lost the value of it as it was agricultural lands which was not managed and one man eating kotta kelangu had bought it.

    Thero is panicking of Ragitha’s threat of arresting Old Brother Prince. But he quoted Ravi saying all these talk are before election talks.

    But still Thero is not mentioning a crucial info Rajitha said. The proceeds of MiG is deposited in Hong Kong under the name of Six Indians. There is nothing surprising in that info because the way Sonia, Shiv Shankar Menon and Karunanidhi were working so closely with the Chitanta government. After that time, Sonia became the world’s fourth richest woman. (But she is said to desk wiping in London, before got the hand of Rajiv). Maran Karunanidhi families became richest in TN.

    Here the importance is coming from the question that arises from all Sinhala Intellectuals want a Tamil Singapore Citizen, Mahendran to be brought to investigate the CB looting. My question is, will the same people ask Shiv Shankar Menon, an Indian Malayalee, to be brought to Lankawe and investigated about the MiG looting? I would think, if Shiv Shankar Menon is not in the six, he will surely know many of them personally.

    Commission to Investigate Allegations of Bribery or Corruption (CIABOC) has not recommended to strip President Rajapakse’s civic rights. This is a story cooked up by UNP and SLFP goons to discourage voters from voting to SLPP. The impression that these goons are trying to create is even if SLPP wins President Rajapakse will not be able to play an active role in politics. For these kinds of things we call in Sinhala ‘Ton Pacha’.

    Batalanda Commission report has recommended to strip Ranil’s civic rights for his role in running a torture chamber and torturing and killing hundreds of youths. But Chandrika did not implement that recommendation.

    Could Dayan tell us where on earth this state enterprise lead economic policy is practiced. If the Soviet Union China and all East Europeon countries and India can practice capitalism why not us. Srilankan Economy is still run on steam generated by the JRs Free trade Zones Mahaweli and Premadasa’s 300 garment factories and housing policy. Unemployment is the lowest now and there is a labour shortage that construction and hospitality sector is now allowed to import labour,

    If Gotabaya is at least jailed and Mahinda is disbarred and their Golabaiya Dayan is asked to SHUT UP once and for all, Srilanga Ceylon would be paradise.

    I a Tamil who has not tasted democracy or justice in my whole life time on this land would live happily ever after my remaining few years.

    And my prayers “Thy kingdom come” would be closer to a reality.

    All those racists who call Dayan a racist do remember that you all are the racists and not Dayan. We love our country our religion and our race. That is the truth. We are not looking forward to migrate to Norway or Sweden. This is going to be our country.

      Sumith,
      If you love your religion practice Buddhism as preached. Give give and give as lord Buddha said and did.. Then only you can attain nibbana as Buddha preached and emanicipate
      Sinhala Buddhists from suffering in samsara never to be born again when there won’t be any Sinhala Buddhists on earth as all of them good Buddhists will be enjoying the supreme bliss of nibbana.You cannot be a good Buddhist.

    God was very unfair when he gave all this intelligence and prophetic powers to one father and son combination only.

    Dayan De Silva( Jayatilleka) and his father ( who worked at lake house-the most honourable news organization this side of the suez !) who has predicted everything in this world , including that Dayan will one day be a aid of presidents Premadasa and Rajapakse, two of the most notorious leaders we have had ! ( mind you Dayan says he follows Marx and Castro )
    Father knew he did not do a good job in inculcating good values

    At one time Dayan was with a Tamil liberation front which was the most pro-Indian group. The group unilaterally declared independence and Dayan was a minister in the government. How he could swing into this anti-Tamil mode is beyond comprehension!
    Dayan predicts serious consequences if Mahinda or Gota is touched. Although he has not stated what the ‘serious consequences’ are, one can guess that this will start with violence based very much on language/religion-divide.
    It is OK for Dayan to live in a world of fantasy but he may have started to project himself negatively.

    There are hopeless causes and lost causes; you are busy championing both.

    So, MaRa and Gota behind bars, and will some kind compassionate soul (in the Ministry of Justice, perhaps?) find a way to put you away too as a ‘service to the nation’.

    Don’t forget DJ that those the gods will destroy, they first drive mad.

    It seems DJ has touched some raw nerves of YAHAPALANAYA backers.
    No wonder the Majority who voted for the CHANGE,are eating humble pie now.
    Sirisena for his own survival will make a radical stance after the 10th and his political survival will hinge on how the SLFP vote base and also Ranil will have an internal power struggle but will manage to hold but with a limited time.

      Of course the voters have been eating humble pie for nearly 70 years.

      “Sirisena for his own survival will make a radical stance after the 10th and his political survival will hinge on how the SLFP vote base and also Ranil will have an internal power struggle but will manage to hold but with a limited time.”

      Are you the twin brother or reincarnation of Sumanadasa Abeygunawardena?

        As you call yourself a NATIVE VEDDA,(I have only heard VEDDA, or have you got yourself confused as a NAIVE VEDDA ), your comments do reflect a CONFUSED VEDDA.
        You need to come out of your hideout and check the pulse of the general ordinary citizens.(THIS STATEMENT MIGHT CONFUSE YOU MORE).
        If YOU were one of 62mil who voted for YAHAPALANAYA, only the reality check on the 10th Feb might cause YOU, A HEART ATTACK & make sure you don’t carry your BO & ARROW on the 11th.

          I asked you a very simple question. If you cannot answer it or don’t want to respond to it is another matter. The way you are trying to dodge the question shows, you are an aspiring politician this country deserves. The country deserves stupid and crooked politicians.

          Wish you well.

        Kalaveddahs: Kumar, I am surprised that you refer to a Kalaveddah in your comment. I am writing this because as a biologist, I want to know what a Kalaveddah is doing in a nice clean forum like CT. Kalaveddahs, (not to be confused with skunks) belong to the family known as polecats, which include hothambuwas, uguduwas and so on. They are a big nuisance to humans because they prefer to live in the ceilings of human dwellings. They eat there, urinate there, defecate there and even have intercourse there. That can be tolerated to some extent if they do it quietly. But no. During their foreplay, they play merry hell by fighting, biting and finally urinating on each other. That is where the biggest trouble comes from. The urine of kalaveddahs smells to high heavens and is so strong and long lasting that for weeks it fools your olfactory glands to go on believing that you are in the contaminated area no matter where you go. In fact it is so obnoxious that the smell of Urulewas feel sweet when compared to it.

        I hope there are no Kalaveddahs in this forum.

    ‘If Gotabaya is jailed and Mahinda is disbarred’

    If Gotabaya cannot go to jail after a fair trial ( remember only the judicial courts heard by a panel of judges can sentence him to jail), then why should I go to jail, and all of us or anybody go to jail. Why should there be a jail in the first place and set everyone free.

    Only argument you can give Gotabaya will not have a fair trial. Then welcome to the Tamil diaspora and ask for foreign judges . No criminals should be protected including the war criminals. Why did you join the EPRLF in your young days and does it still haunt you. All your actions now seemed to due your scary past you are unable to write it off!

    This person called Dayan is notorious for his willful exaggerations who thinks he can hoodwink the mass (voters) at this important time. He must be really angry and upset about the stories that come in the media about his masters MR and GR and he wants to do some damage control work. Let the people decide on the fate of all the wrong doers.

    Mallayiyrun,
    Unlike the Native, you seem to be up to speed with the ” Gymnastics” of our Politikkas.
    I saw one smart Lawyer waving a Copy of the Batalanda Report and the Waters Edge Judgement both together and asking the distinguished gathering of Municipality Voters How Come Sira wants to strip Civil Rights even before these persons are charged,
    When the charged and found guilty beyond doubt , Dr Ranil and Cousin are giving us Yahapalanaya, while rewarding their mates and supporters both Local and the Diaspora with oodles of Cash. robbed from the Tax Payers.. ..
    Sira seems desperate..
    Sira’s Gauchos will run last ,for sure.
    And Dr Ranil will do a White Wash with 70 percent of the Councils and Council members
    That is according to Dr Ranil’s own blue eyed Boy and Dr Mahendran and Mr Aloysios’s Defense Attorney , the Kid with the Silver Spoon.
    So I had second thoughts about Dr Ranil’ and his “Jail Rajapakasa Brigade” lead by Rajitha and Ponny..
    Why would they want to do Sakkili work , when young Sujeeva is giving them so much confidence..
    And Dr Ranil may even be able to nudge the Pohottuwa and pull off a surprise like rolling Sira at the next Election.
    And get the ultimate price of Presidency , before he gets cremated next to the great UNP ex President, uncle Junius in Kanatta…..

    Before talking about a “Huge Sinhala swing” in 2019 why not predict Feb 10th?
    Here is the result.
    UNP FIRST
    SLPP a weak Second
    Tamil Racists and Tamil speaking Dravidian Muslim ethnic parties 3rd and
    Sirisena and Haal hora party 4th or 3rd if ethno-minorities split and also go to UNP

    MR WILL NOT EVEN GET 8% of Tamil and Dravida Muslim votes.

    I still can’t understand why an academic like Dayan worship MR and GR so blindly. It is no secret that these two misused the power given to them as if this country is their ancestral property. They behaved as if lives of Sri Lankans remains at the mercy of R family, the entire land of Sri Lanka their own property. They converted the blessings of ordinary people who supported the war against Tigers into their own benefit. Those who savoured the crumbs left out by this family dreams of bringing lost royalty back lo them.Dayans argument is similar to the JVPs Indian Expansionism, a phobia which is not yet materialised. Why can’t we think like Sri Lanka as one nation and develop our own personality to face challenges in the Indian Ocean? Are these the only persons who can bring prosperity to this country? Only people should decide.

    I can’t see anything biased or wrong in allowing the law to take its proper course in dealing with the two thieving criminals who have plundered national wealth and who also stand accused of murder.
