Illegal Surveillance On CBK: Full Text Of The Letter Sent By Chandrika Kumaratunga To President Rajapaksa

The former President Chandrika Kumaratunga has written to the President Mahinda Rajapaksa urging to stop all illegal surveillance on her. The letter was sent on March 05, , 2014 and acknowledged by President’s Secretary Lalith Weeratunge.

We publish below the letter in full;

His Excellency Mahinda Rajapakse,

President of Sri Lanka,

Presidential Secretariat,

Colombo 1.

Harassment of Former President Chandrika Bandaranaike Kumaratunga Through Illegal Surveillence

I write to inform you of certain activities undertaken by your Government that have violated my privacy, caused much harassment to me and concern with regard to my personal safety.

This situation also violates my Fundamental Rights, impinging on my freedom of movement and freedom of association.

Since I retired from the Presidency in 2005 and you assumed the office of President, the secret services of the Government, which are directly under the authority of yourself and your brother Gotabhaya Rajapakse, Secretary to your Ministry of Defence, have relentlessly pursued the following actions :

  • Constant surveillance of all my telephone and email communications
  • Constant surveillance of my residences in Colombo and at Horagolla
  • “Visits” paid to several friends, consequent to their visiting my home, by officers introducing themselves as from the NIB.  They have been interrogated, in an intimidating manner, about what they did at my home, who else was present and what was discussed.

I complained in writing about this to the former Inspector General of Police Mr. Jayantha Wickremeratne by my letter dated 19th October, 2009 and also talked to him on the phone.  I did not have the courtesy of even an acknowledgement, similarly to several letters written to you, your Secretary Lalith Weeratunga as well as Secretary, Ministry of Defence Gotabhaya Rajapakse on other matters.

  • NIB officers visiting and interrogating the management of hotels, after I have happened to visit these hotels for entirely personal reasons.  They have been questioned as to why I went to the hotel, what I discussed, who I meet there, etc. They also place officers at the hotel, to watch and report on who attends my events.  The staff at these hotels has been so intimidated and frightened by these actions, that I now find it difficult to arrange even personal events at hotels.
  • Recently I went to the Kurunegala District, for a personal visit.  A few long-time friends learnt of my visit and invited me to their homes – one for tea and the other for dinner.  The local NIB officer subjected my hosts to constant harassment for several days before and after my visit, inquiring about the reasons for my visit, whom I met, etc.  In the context of a culture of white vans, these friends are terrified to associate with me anymore.
  • I also went recently to Anuradhapura with foreign friends.  The hotel I stayed in was under a 24 hour surveillance by NIB officers, who were recognized and spoken to by my security detail.  The net result would be that the said hotel management will be hesitant to accommodate me in the future.
  • It is noteworthy that my security officers have recognized some of the NIB personnel engaging in various acts of surveillance

I am deeply concerned about the above for the reasons given below :

  1. This is a serious violation of my Fundamental Rights to movement and association.
  2. This amounts to a calculated strategy of your Government to harass me and cause severe mental and emotional stress to me, while intimidating my friends and associates.  This situation is compounded by the knowledge that you have informed a large number of senior members of our Party and our Government to desist from talking and associating with me, during the past 8 years of your Presidency.
  3. Taking into consideration the prevailing practice of destroying anyone who is considered a threat to the higher authorities of your Government, by means of murder, “disappearances”, physical attacks, I have serious reasons to be concerned about my safety.  The practice of constant surveillance is an effective means of obtaining information about my whereabouts, in order to facilitate planned action against my person.

I say that the surveillance that has been mounted on me, the Former President of Sri Lanka, is illegal for the following reasons :

  • The only legal provision relating to this issue is Section 56 of the Police Ordinance.  This Section casts a duty on a Police Officer to use his best endeavours to prevent all crimes, offences and public nuisances, to preserve the peace, to apprehend disorderly and suspicious characters and to collect and communicate intelligence affecting the public peace, etc.
  • This Section evidently comes into operation when the relevant Police authority has reasonable grounds to suspect that the person they need to mount surveillance on is engaged in the above stated activities. I would be pleased if you could inform me what crimes and offences I have committed, in which way I have been a public nuisance or affected public peace, or behaved in a disorderly or suspicious manner.
  • In the absence of the above unlawful activities, I clearly wish to inform you that the surveillance mounted on me by your Government is illegal and unconstitutional and in violation of my Fundamental Rights.

I wish to earnestly request Your Excellency to take immediate action to instruct all relevant authorities to stop all illegal surveillance done with regards to myself.

Thanking you.

Yours faithfully,

Chandrika Kumaratunge

        Who should feel sorry for this corrupt Ex-President? Nobody.

        Her corrupt family run party, SLFP nominated and brought the current corrupt clan destroying Sri Lanka beyond recognition into power.

        Therefore this woman and SLFP are responsible for the unprecedented tragic, brutal form governance Sri Lanka is experiencing now.

        She also had 2 terms of all mighty Presidency of Sri Lanka to strengthen our institutions of government. She did none of that.

        Now whining about the dictator her party brought to power.

        Sri Lanka needs to kick all these people out of our politics. We need a clean start. These people are not required.

        Cheers!

          DJ:-please leave aside your prejudices: CBK has leaned a lesson. True, that whe she was in power she was often in a trap of CORRUPT POLITICAL CULTURE , which I agree that she made worse, especially by making that horrible Corrupt clown Sarath Silva CJ! But she is the best we have at this time.
          Madam CBK is the best of a bad lot of rotten political leaders in Sri Lanka today. Given that the SINHALAYA MODAYAS are a stupid and ignorant lot who vote for political dynasties, the best JOINT OPPOSITION CANDIDATE TO GET RID OF Mahinda Rajapaksa and his corrupt and criminal family is CBK – NOT SOBITHA. She should be asked to publicly sign and take an oath to ABOLISH The EXECUTIVE PRESIDENCY before being made JOINT OPPOSITION CANDIDATE for the next presidential election.
          Also CBK is clearly pulling her socks up – now that she is out of power.. and I am sure she is a better and wiser person now. I like her stand on interfaith dialogue and promoting MULTICULTURALISM and religious tolerance. After all, No other Sri Lankan politician has been able to do what Madam CBK has done to fight the Jarapassa’s Balu Sena of Saffron robed Thugs who are DESTROYING BUDDHISM in Sri Lanka and giving Sinhala Buddhism a bad name. Madam CBK is working to save Buddhism in Sri Lanka and this is a very good thing. I think she would be a winner at the next presidential elections and should be the

          Bandaranaikes handed their lands over to the government.So how can you say they are corrupt.Let us know what corruptions they did.
          CBK is not responsible for the present tragedy.She never liked Mahinda so she tried to prevent him coming to power.
          She presented a new constitution with more power the North and East and she tried to abolish executive presidency through it.It was the UNP and others including Vasudeva which sabotaged it.
          Her fault was she did not burrow money to build roads airports, ports etc.
          Everybody makes mistakes.She has not attained arahathhood.

            Punchio,

            this particular Ben and ilk would only see one side.

            You are right saying that CBK did not agree with Mahinda even from the beginning on. But she has to respect views of others too. I wish that Kadirgamar could have been appointed as the PM by her, but that could have worked… amidst the resistence made by party senior. I now believe, if Mahinda was CBK´s position then, he would have elected any candidate he thought was right, but unanimously. His performance today is more like unanimous decisions, abusing executive powers. See alone the matter with Minsiter of Justice without ministerial powers. All the authorities have been taken over by MR… so Minister of Justice is seen as a puppet. People attack him for not doing the due, but President has made him powerless. Jvpers have proved how many depts have been taken over by president.. it is over 100… can you imagine ? This is how this idiot work… can any homosapiens be that capable to keep under control doing this due ? :: only tyrant leaders do so. Ministers stay mum .. for no reasons… This is the reason why we the readers see Predident does that, president did that.. president opens the highway.. president travelled somewhere, and etc.. everything is being done by president… ?????????????????????????????????

            Recalling what Sengentu added to CT readership few weeks ago, the way how CBK`s son offered a wheelchaired lady his business class seat in a flight heading to london and the security levels that they then enjoyed were much less compared to today´s situation where president sons, wife and the entire family enjoy. Cosmetic queen is said to be the most wasteful woman that the country has ever produced sofar. And people in colombo areas are highly distubred by unbearable sound exposure deliberately caused by their night car race show. Nobody is going to criticise that..

            Let alone the bugger in power should focus about his that and this inaugaration and the relaed security expenses. Wastages of all together bring millions to billions. Cant he spend those funds for the poorest of the poor that have been struggling for their 3 meals today ?

      “I would be pleased if you could inform me what crimes and offences I have committed, in which way I have been a public nuisance or affected public peace, or behaved in a disorderly or suspicious manner.”

      Well in 2000, you agreed to LTTE’s demand for an Interim Self Governing Authority [ISGA] and offered north and east to Prabakaran to rule for 10 years without elections, without opposition parties, without any military camps and without disarming the LTTE. Just imagine what would have happened to the fundamental rights of the Tamil people. This is God’s punishment to you.

          Gaminiyo,
          CBK is the worst president of Sri Lanka. Mad woman fought several wars and peace thavalams by awalams and numerous peace talks for 11 long years. But we neither had any peace nor win the war. It was under this woman Sri Lanka reached a negative growth. Stupid woman thought changing the timezone would promote growth.

          She spend billion rupees to build a presidential castle by Diyawanna oya (you can see hordes of piles even today at Palawatta end) thinking she would remain president for ever.

          She should not be harassed but be charged in a court of law for cheating and misappropriating public funds and property throughout her 11 year rule as described in Victor Ivon’s famous book ‘Bandit Queen’.

          But I commend CBK for one thing. That is; not letting your bugger gal-Ranil win that 2000 election and become the President. Had gal-Ranil won the Presidency that year by chance, Sri Lanka would have been two countries. If remained a ‘one country’ it would be like Syria now.

          In less than four years MR had eradicated the terrorists and promoted an absolute peace to the entire country. Today, unlike Arab spring countries, people of Sri Lanka enjoy democratic freedom. They can have protests and elect their own local, provincial as well as central government even before due dates. Inflation and unemployment is down and growth is over 7%, much higher than India. No wonder separatists are moaning. But MR is winning every election.

            If she was worst, today, we have the all worst president in power.

            So given that choice people would rather say yes to CBK
            and would make a coalition together with UNP.. that will then allow Ranil to do gentleman politics safeguarding the respect and dignity of the nation. Latter is what lacking at the moment.
            So, people will get this soon, today is better than tomorrow.
            Ones that respect dignity, respect, law and order will rally round to form a new coalition with UNP… Rev. Sobitha will help them abolishing the current excutive presidency. CBK will have no deisire to rule the country, so people will have to chose their future leader. That is it. Those who support CBK within UPFA will no doubt join them soon. These are the realities in this country soon.

      Dear hon.Chandrika Kumaratunge,

      “The former President Chandrika Kumaratunga has written to the President Mahinda Rajapaksa urging to stop all illegal surveillance on her. The letter was sent on March 05, , 2014 and acknowledged by President’s Secretary Lalith Weeratunge.”

      This is the depth to which, this so-called Dhamma Depaya, faith Island, had fallen.

      1. Sri Lanka has no Ethics, courtesy Monk Mahanama “Buddhism” and it’s followers.. The Native Veddah are more Egalitarian and more civilized than the Para-deshis, the Para-Sinhala and Para-Tamils and the other Paras. Sri Lanka’s ethic violence supports that.

      The Native Veddah, walked when the seal levels were low, as low as 130 meters about 25,000 years ago, unlike the other Para who were Kalla-Thonis.,, Hora-Oru and Illegal-boat Paras.

      2. The so-called Sri Lanka State, comprising the SLFP are all liars. The data and history proves that.

      3. The current regime and Mr. Rajapaksa follows that Sinhala “Buddhist” tradition, that is NOT in the Tipitaka and was not taught by the enlightened Buddha. ( Buddha is is Nor Lord or God, just a Great Teacher who wanted to get away from suffering).

      4. The Considerate Ethics of the Sinhala Buddhists and that of the Sri Lanka State created an environment for what they are doing to you and the lies they perpetuate.

      Their goal is to stay in power by whatever means necessary and continue their hegemony.

      What can you do to dislodge these Maras from their current hegemony?

    “3.Taking into consideration the prevailing practice of destroying anyone who is considered to be a threat to Higher Authorities of your Government,by means of murder,”disappearences”,physical attacks,I have serious reasons to be concerned about my safety………………….”

    Straight ‘from the horse’s mouth’ – a former President,no less – comes the unvarnished truth of/about the Terror Regime in existence in Sri Lanka.

    Is there any more proof necessary about the ongoing State Terrorism???

      This is the ground reality of the current regime.

          Cant you get that from majority of the commentators that have added their two cents reveal that DJ has finally changed his mind. But they are surprised him to have not done it long back now ?

          On his return from France (Paris) a year ago, people thought that the guy would have made it very clear that the rulers are totally wrong the way they handle foreign affairs. But for some unexplainable reasons he failed to do so.

          Even after teh ALjaseera Interview in which NATION´s meeharaka none other than MAHINDA Rajapaske accused DJ of being caught by ver powerful NGOs, but not even few days after that accussation, DJ was invited to Temple trees for common gathering… since then DJ behaved himself as if he was making every efforts to be MR´s lap dog…. this kind of nature was in built in Dayan De Silva even if he would come with new form of articles. But the man seem to be REACTING a dog that underwent SHOCK THERAPY, being that frghtened to express his critque against Brutal MR REGIME… directly the man MR why ?

          World will reveal all these soon, is my hope in the aftermath of UNHRC tremors. Poor people of this country are easy targets of Rajapaskhe liars. Rajapakshes abuse them dawn to dusks these days, pleading wrong views about the UNHRC election in order to achieve more SYMPATHY votes winning Southern and Western provinces.

          Even if we are all aware of the fact that BRUTAL regime ´s performance has reached its all unbearable margins…. nodoubt more will vote MR guys into power…

          As one who has not lived inthe country for the last 3 decades I question myself not once several dozens of times, why over 93% literate nation react to the very manner as Paksitanis or Morroccans (whose literacy rates are lower to 50%) do.
          I guess our people are easy vulnerable targets for any kind of frauds. They just look the surface and get cheated easily.

          If senior profesionals like Srinath Perera and the like or some have come from longer stays in abroad (usa) may clean the nation is my great hope. We need more of the mentioned kind of candidates to gear up the nation. They will surely be exemplary to this nation making new better canddiates to face the future corruption less politics.

    What CBK complains of and suffers is inflicted on hundreds of others in society too. In the Tamil North it is worse and unspeakable.
    The similar sins, grossly illegal acts, were committed during CBKs regime. Some of which perhaps some under her directions, including the one in which armed gunslingers in her chosen favourite gang in the STF machine-gunned the Chinese-Restaurant of a former politico (now Ambassador) at Queen’s Road off R.A. de Mel Mwa in Cbo 3. Remember the same gang made a similar attack the house of the late Lasantha W. When out of powere she refused to go to visit her favourite “thug in uniform” in prison when he was taken into custody by the Rajapakses. She too is party to the state of a failed society that we have been forced to.

    I do not say she has no cause for complaint here. But she clearly sowed the wind and now suffers reaping the whirlwind. All these people are responsible for ruining a once peaceful, united and respected country.

    To what extent that these activities differ from the Nazi Gestapo under Hitler that acted as a secret police force outside of the normal judicial process in Germany under Hitler? .The main purpose Nazi Gestapo was to hunt out those considered a threat to Nazi Germany. The crimes against humanity committed by these “secret agents” of Hitler were revealed. At the Nuremburg Trials the Nazi Gestapo was declared a criminal organization The international Tribunals should investigate the crimes against humanity committed by these “secret agents” of MR and his brother..

Wonder what will happen to the current EP when he loses power! I bet the bugger will end up in the “electric chair”, the favourite election gimmick of MARA. Anyway CB and SLFP are themselves responsible for their own sorrow, in addition to the destruction and suffering they caused to the citizens of this country. By toppling Ranil’s government with JVP morons she dug her own grave and those of the majority fools in the country. Everyone is now living in a Rajapaksha hell, an SLFP creation.

    Rajapakse Family dictatorship now turned against key Sinhalese at all level. This list includes
    1. Former military commander.

    4. Former Prime Minister Ranil Wickremasinghe.
    5. Former Friend and leading journalist Lasantha wickrematungue.
    6. Former associates JVP activists.
    7. Weliveriya people.
    8. Sinhala human right activists including Ekeliyagoda, and Ruki Fernando.

    The policy is clear. Whether you are a Sinhala or Tamil, whether you are an international body or local body, no one should raise their voice against Rajapakse Family. Thats it.

    Is she planning to overthrow the regime with the support of TNA, Diaspora, USA, UNHRC, Navi Pillai, LTTE (Gopi), LTTE rump, NGOs, ……. and other unnamed group of people?

      Native Vedda,
      I bet Man-gala must be giving all hopes to CBK that she would be the common candidate at the coming up presidential election.

      But the JVP knows by experience that CBK’s promises and agreements to abolish the presidency are not worth the paper it is written. Besides, Gal Ranil wanted to contest the presidency this time around. SF thinks he won the last Presidential election and therefore he alone can beat MR todate. Sobitha is working hard to be the compromise candidate. I say, chance of any of them winning the Presidency against MR is no better than CM Wiggie winning it.

      You have to get into shoes or slippers of an average Sinhala Buddhist to understand why they vote overwhelmingly for MR.

    Mrs President,
    It clearly shows the fear of this uneducated uncultured rascals.
    This criminal family from deep south is not only suffering from inferiority complex but suffering from superiority complex as well. Individuals with a superiority complex often exhibit a sense of grandiosity. They typically maintain a feeling that they are better or more important than other people, and often fail to take the opinions or desires of others seriously. This disorder may also be referred to as narcissism or megalomania.

    If this is the case for a person like you, you can imagine the situation of others. The day you dissolved a democratically elected government with the advise of THEN JVP, thats the day you gave the green light to kill the democrasy thus paving way for a megalomaniac lunatic to succeed you.

    Well, Past is past. Personally I would never support you, yet most probably the only person who could chase this IRC regime out is YOU. And its your responsibility. You should join RW/Karu, two from handful of gentlemen politicians we are having right now in the country. People in this country need your support. People wouldnt give a damn who should be the President or the PM. All we need is your RETURN.

    Mrs. President CBK, You didnt or couldnt do anything during your tenure, at least come back now in order to save this land from wrong hands. The time is running out.
    NB – Sent copies of this letter to every embassies around the world.

            refering to you comment on March 19, 2014 at 9:15 pm

            in which you added something totally against CBK.

            Now to praise Pandu (Pandukabaya
            March 19, 2014 at 11:12 pm) is not comprehesible/somewhat contradictory.

            I think it is timeworthy CBK, Sobithathero and any other senior powerful men to react. Longer they are in silent mode, the worst will be the case.

            Anyway, wait and see, how CBK´s meet with MR would influence the situ soon.

              Punchiappu ,

              as i said in my earlier comment , CBK is the root cause for all the mayhem what we witness today , however i strongly believe ONLY CBK/Ven Sobitha led combo together with UNP and other parties along with the help of 17 Th amendment can bring about a change to SL politics , if Ven Sobitha were to contest without CBK’s support , our desired out come would be distance reality , every indication is there that MR won’t give up power until his clown price takes over the rains , only Vatti Amma type CBK can man handle MR .

    To what extent hese acts would differ from the Nazi Gestopo the secret police force created to operate out the law by Hitler in Germany for spying on citizen to rooting out political dissidents ? In Nurenburge Trils declared the Nazi Gestopo as a criminal organization and comdemmed these activities as crimes against humanity. The International Tribunals should look into these criminal activities perperated on Sri Lankan society by MR and his brothers.

    Dear Chandirikka madam, can you remember how you spied upon Lasantha Wicramatunga, how he was attacked many times, how his printing press was burnt many times and how you called him a “worm” during your presidency?

    Taraki Sivaram was killed when you were president.

    No one was arrested!

    18 Muslims killed in Kandy and your cousin was behind it. He was rewarded!

    Karumam amma. Karumam.

    Dear Madam Chandrika Bandaranaike Kumaratunge, our Future Presidential candidate of Sri Lanka

    We are sorry to hear about the harassment you have to face from our “Gan Kabaraya”.

    Also we are sad to say that it was You who nominated this “Gan Kabaraya” Villege Crocodile, power hungry, Money Greedy, shit eating Pig as your then SLFP party leader in 2004.

    Ultimately you had to even leave your Presidency ONE YEAR AHEAD DUE TO THE CONSPIRACY BETWEEN THE TWO FOXES, MR AND SARATH NANDA SILVA.

    Now you are crying foul, while the same wolf you nominated coming to haunt you.

    Why did you not nominate that Jewel of a man Laxman Kadirgamar as the SLFP head……..or even Maithripala Sirisena………

    You should have used your common sense when appointed MR as SLFP head when you knew that he went to Geneva in 1988/89 to betray our country and then ruling UNP.

    There’s a saying that who ever breaks the pot has to fix it.

    Therefore the only option you have now have to fix it is to contest for the next Presidential election as a candidate.

    They say the BEST OFFENSE IS THE BEST DEFENSE……Meaning in order to
    DEFEND YOURSELF YOU HAVE TO GO ON OFFENSIVE.
    I mean not to fight with fire arms…..but with your Mighty Pen, Mouth and Brains, and to go public both locally and Internationally.
    That’s how teams win matches and games.

    This is the best time and period for it.

    Finally the only way to teach moron Rajapakses who think Sri Lanka is their MOTHER’S PRIVATE PROPERTY, is to contest for next Presidential election either single handadly or as a common candidate.There are still many supporters behind you.

    You have 100% chance of defeating the Gan Kabaraya and he knows it.

    We the Sinhalese and the Tamils and Muslims want a change badly and you could make it.

    Take care Madam Chandrika and Good Luck.

      “Also we are sad to say that it was You who nominated this “Gan Kabaraya” Villege Crocodile, power hungry, Money Greedy, shit eating Pig as your then SLFP party leader in 2004.”

      It was VP who elected him as the president of this land for a fee.

      Now VP must be having his last laugh from beyond his grave.

        Native Vedda,

        You say….”It was VP who elected him as the president of this land for a fee”

        I agree with you that it was VP who made MR to win election for an agreed sum of 800 million rupees out of which MR paid only half of it.

        But it was Madam Chandrika WHO NOMINATED MR AS THE SLFP PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE.

    Sad reality of the times we live in. She is followed around even when she attends family functions at hotels like her own sister’s birthday. The paranoia and fear is akin to what the Kim family displays in N.Korea

    If a former president of the country is fearful O&G the Rajapaksas imagine the plight of ordinary citizens. The great dictator is getting more paranoic as he collects more and more enemies. This shows he is weak and insecure with increasing criticism from within and from outside the country. His time in power is coming to an end and I hope it is as violent as the violence he perpetratedon his adversaries.

    This woman Chandrika should not be harassed but be charged in a court of law for cheating and misappropriation of public property and funds throughout her 11 year rule as described in Victor Ivon’s infamous ‘Bandit Queen’, murdering many journalists like ‘Satana’ editor, employing famous thugs like Baddegana Sanjive as personal bodyguards, sending her thug bodyguards to harass people like Rukantha and Chandraleka, instigating to use violence like the infamous Wayamba election, offering a 10 rule for LTTE without elections, Dragging the economy to a negative growth etc and etc.

    when the lady was President what did the Police do ? Did they not spy on ordinary citizens etc? Who in Sri Lankan politics can take the moral high ground ? Such hypocritical garbage !

    Chandrika committed several critical errors during her rule. Appointing the current monster to head the SLFP was the worst of them. While the CJ appointment set the stage for her own premature demise. All of the bad choices were made in the belief that championing the underdog or the scum bucket will yield loyal and supplicant subjects. The lessons were never learnt but repeated on a much grander scale by the current monster. However, just dragging her misdeeds to sling mud at her as if somehow this would justify the current even worse situation is missing the point and done with malicious intent. That the head of state is allowed to carry out this vicious vendetta and I have no doubt that the allegations are all true knowing the nature of the man she accuses is disgusting. There is not much left of a proper functioning democracy.

    Look who’s is complaining – Chandrika Bandaranaike
    Kumaratunga, former President and Minister of
    Defence.

    The way she used the then National Intelligence Bureau
    (NIB) for matters which were far outside national
    security interests is highly deplorable. How many are
    aware she was poking her nose into the love affairs of
    many a minister, learning the personal lives of her
    political opponents and initiating illegal action against
    them.

    There is a serious flaw in her letter. She says NIB
    operatives were visiting the residences of her friends
    and hotels. If that is to be believed, she is a compulsive
    liar. The NIB ended with her reign. What is in place now
    is the State Intelligence Service.

    Whilst in no way condoning any illegal surveillance, if
    that is true, Chandrika is the last person who should cry.
    Volumes can be written about her misdeeds. If she challenges
    this letter, I will come out with a few matters that will
    shut her up for life.

      I believe everything you wrote to the last letter for late Baddegana Sanjeeva had told me a few instructions she gave him.
