In a statement issued today, Jayasuriya said, “at no point has either President Maithripala Sirisena or Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe expressed any differences of opinion with regard to the functions and independence of the independent commission.”

“Therefore, even in the future, the independence of these commissions will remain intact and this is the stand that both the President and the Prime Minister has echoed, and I guarantee this,” Jayasuriya assured in the statement.

The statement added that as per the democratic rights of the people, and their requests the commissions were established to carry out a national duty. “At no point will we stop to appreciate the role of these independent commissions, and the Constitutional Assembly will give its blessings to these independent commissions to carry on their duty, and also support it in its important role,” Jayasuriya, who is also the Chairman of the Constitutional Assembly said.

      Karu Jayasuriya has proved beyond doubt he is one of the most ineffectual Speakers we have ever had in parliament. He is weak. He cannot control the House.

      How can he guarantee the things he now promises?

        60 percent of Americans think that the US economy is rigged against them.

        In Sri Lanka the economy is rigged against working people by CORRUPT POLITICIANS who use their “parliamentary privileges” that Ranil Wickramasinghe loves, to loot the country and people of Sri Lanka.

        This is why the corrupt politicians appoint their cronies and puppets like Chandi Sharma to the Bribery Commission and other Commissions that are supposed to be independent. Dilrukshi Wickramasinghe was Ranil’s puppet, totally unprofessional in conducting investigations, or having transparent decision making and clear rationals, processes and procedures in prosecution of corruption.

    Obviously the Speaker KJ has not listened to My3’s hysterical speech at the ‘Sathviru Sanhinda’ programme held at the Sri Lanka Foundation on Wednesday the 12th October 2016. The President expressed his displeasure with CIABOC for doing what they were employed to do in no uncertain terms. So much so the Director General of CIABOC had no choice but to resign.

    The speaker’s guarantee that the independence of the Independent Commissions will remain intact is just empty talk. The speaker has no powers to override the President or Prime Minister. The President has certainly overstepped his mark and has shown utter contempt towards CIABOC. What will Karu do now?

      RE: ‘Independence Of Independent Commissions Will Remain’ – Speaker Guarantees

      Are you Playinhg dumb, or are assuming ALL sri Lankans are Modayas, Mootals and Idioits, because the average National IQ is 79? Have you hear aboytr the standards deviation and IQ distributrion? Thery can see through your hypocrisy.

      To start with, Initiate impeachment Proceedings against the President, Gon Gamarala, for interfering and disrupting the constitutionally elected Independent commissions, and teaming up with with crooks and criminals, to safeguard them and potentially taking bribes running into the billions from the stolen loot of the people, in possession of Rajapaksa and his cronies.

      Mr. Speaker, do you know the Reason behind president’s inflammatory speech known ! attempts are made to rescue criminals

      Why not start Impeachment Proceedings against the President? After all, they initiated Against Richard Nixon.

      Through the Bulath Vine, Vellila Vine and Grape Vine, in case you are not aware…Playing Ignorant is not an excuse, Mr. speaker.

      Lanka Vine News inside information division has been able to track down the reason behind the 13th October odious and offensive speech of president Maithripala Sirisena which compromised the Independent Commissions including the Police Commission ; criticized the judicial process and sought to rescue the rogues and criminals. This speech was so outrageously inflammatory that it was tantamount to the president voluntarily consuming a cyanide capsule to commit political suicide.

      The investigations into three main and ghastly murders committed by the deposed and discarded Rajapakses during the nefarious decade have by now reached the final stage. The three murders are : Lasantha’s, Ekneliyagoda’s and Thajudeen’s.

      The criminals responsible for the three murders have been identified , and the crucial question now is , who gave these criminal orders ? What remains is to track down this culprit . Even the telephonic discussion for over an hour that was exchanged at Temple Trees at 1.00 a.m in connection with Ekneliyagoda murder had been uncovered .

      Already 11 reports have been furnished to court by all the intelligence and security divisions that Ekneliyagoda had no links whatsoever with the Tiger organization. Hence this was a clear political murder committed by the Rajapakses . Now investigations are at the final stage , and all what remains to be uncovered is , with evidence ascertain who are the Rajapakses who gave the instructions supported by evidence .

      Maithripala Sirisena made his explosive ‘cyanide speech’ and advanced stealthily in order to save the murderous Rajapakses.

      Based on reports reaching Vine news inside information division , it is a most infamous political Bhikkhu ,and a notorious wheeler dealer minister who sleeps with the Rajapakses on the same mattress who have instilled the necessary ‘poison’ into Maithri and got him round to blabber as he did yesterday . Maithripala who suffers from puerile drives and loses his sane thinking power more often than not , had fallen prey to the poison and destructive proposals , going by his thoughtless and senseless speech yesterday .

      No matter what , the October 13th ridiculous speech of Maithripala was tantamount to turning his back on the very masses that steered him to victory on 2015-01-08, and forcibly displaying his hideous back and bottom to them despite their stubborn refusal to see that ugly sight. Indeed the whole country has been provoked by his speech , and Maithripala has incurred the absolute displeasure of the entire population. Never has a leader earned so much wrath and curse of a nation in just a night , and tarnished his image this much.

      In the event of Maithripala taking the step of bringing the ministry of law and order under his purview or resorts to some other disastrous self destructive action , that will be the beginning of the end of Maithripala with an impeachment motion in parliament staring in his face.

      The political parties , Civil and professional forces, and pro good governance masses that steered him to victory were hitherto doing everything to save him as long as he was against the murderers , the corrupt and rogues , and discharging his tasks accordingly , have now realized , he is truly protecting and shielding those very criminals most traitorously . Under the present circumstances it is certain not even a dog in the street will come to his rescue .It is hoped Maithripala will take serious note of this warning.

      Please start Impeachment proceedings, against Gon Gamarala.

      RE: ‘Independence Of Independent Commissions Will Remain’ – Speaker Guarantees

      From the Vines and agitated masses…and the Dom Gamarala’s talks..

      //”ස්වාධීන කොමිෂන් සභා පත් කරන ලද්දේ කතානායකතුමන්ගේ සභාපතිත්වයෙන් යුත් ආණ්ඩුක්‍රම ව්‍යවස්ථා සභාව විසිනි. ජනාධිපති මෛත්‍රීපාල සිරිසේන මහතාගේ ප්‍රකාශයකින් පසු ස්වාධීන කොමිෂන් සභාවන්හි ක්‍රියාකාරිත්වය නිසා පහර වැදුනු තක්කඩි දේශපාලකයන් විසින් ස්වාධීන කොමිෂන් සභා ඉලක්ක කරමින් අවලාද නැගීමේ ව්‍යාපාරයක් ගෙන යමින් සිටිති. “//

      English Translation:

      Independent Commissions were appointed with the Chairmanship of the Speaker for Regulations. After President Mairipala Sirisen’a disclosures and criticism, the actions of the independent commissions that target crooks, and corrupt politicians, have made the Interdependent Commissions their targets.

      So, where is the Problem?

      1. The Crooks and politicians who are on the wrong side of the law , and they prevent the work of independent commissions.

      2. President Maitripala Sirisena, getting in bed with the crooks and killers.

      Solution:

      Start Impeachment Proceedings against preside Maitripala Sirisena, who is with the crooks and killers.

    “Speaker Karu Jayasuriya last night guaranteed that the independence of the Independent Commissions will remain intact, and at a no point will the role of the commissions be allowed to be hindered with or influenced.”

    Which means all these commissions are going to be buried under your amude sooner than later.

    Thanks you speaker for explaining to us the mechanism and as to why the state and the rulers are genuinely concerned about the outcome of all these toothless commissions.

    Therefore you must intervene to stop the commissioners digging further into the past deeds, deals, murders, war crimes, … and other serious crimes.

    The sovereignty of this island is at stake here.
    Please let the crooks and their accomplishes take truth to their grave. If you don’t, I warn you, history will judge you harshly or may deem you a traitor.

    Actions speak louder than words, so let’s see what happens.

    Anyway, if “Independence” is the key word, what the hell is Sirisena shooting his mouth out about??? Let him allow the Commissions to do their jobs and stay out of their business.

    Better that he attend to his son’s ‘bull in the china shop’ syndrome and send him to a shrink or ship him out, or better yet, whip him with that stingray tail!

    Mr. Speaker: Please do not try to further ridicule and underestimate the intelligence levels of the people. Did you not know, at the very outset of instituting the FCID, a directive was issued that all complains to be investigated must be channeled through a “Committee” of which the Prime Minister is sitting on the head seat. Was this not so? For your information, though you want to wilfully hoodwink the people, Mr. Gotabaya Rajapakse filed a “Fundamental Rights” application stating that “procedure” of directing complains through such a “Committee” constituted with politicians inclusive of the Prime Minister, tantamount to “Political Interference”. That was the initial blunder made in instituting the FCID.

    The question people ask was why former CB governor’s bond issue, a major financial fraud is put into the back-burner and giving excuses for the delay saying that short of staff. Seen many reports that the Perpetual Trusties (with one year active operation) recorded profits which our banks (BOC, Peoples Bank and with many decades in financial business) have so far failed to achieve. Don’t allow these issue to surface undermining work carried out my many.

    Your statement is merely a damage control act

    I think the civil society welcomes Speaker Jayasuriya coming forward to reassure the people perturbed over the future of the independent commissions. In fact, it is his right and bounden duty to give this assurance as the chairperson of the Constitutional Council (CC) responsible for the appointment of the independent commissions and ensuring their smooth functioning. By the way, certain politicians- the latest being a spokesman for the JHU – have begun casting aspersions on the credibility, impartiality and the efficiency of the CIABOC’s DG who has now tendered her resignation. I think that these detractors are more bent on justifying the President’s sensational statement than being concerned about the functioning of the Commission. True, in a democratic society none is above criticism. However,holders of highly sensitive high office like the CIABOC DG deserve some protection from unfair, baseless and malicious allegations by politicians in particular who at most times are working on a hidden personal agenda. Although, the DG in this case is not an appointee of the CC, I think it is the duty of the latter to protect her from unfair assaults on her integrity. Let us look forward to a positive response from the Honorable Speaker as the chairperson of the CC.

    Aiyooooo….. Karu Uncle..Are you still the boss of that Sinhala Buddhist Faction?.

    Or have you converted too…I mean to Batalanada Ranil’s Hip Theravada Buddhism?.

    How is the old apprentice from Keselwatta doing?..

    Did you tell him about this independent Yahapalanaya too, because my elders tell me he checks the UNP membership card, before the Dalits can join the queue to put the name for one of those assembly jobs, which Batalanada promised before the election.

    SAMAN WIJESIRI TOTALLY AGREE WITH YOUR EXCELLENT COMMENTS.
    I think it is the duty of the latter to protect her from unfair assaults on her integrity.

    These SLFP bastards are thugs and morons REMEMBER after impeaching Shirani Bandaranaike SLFP Bastards danced, hooted and ate kiribath outside her official quarters at Bauddhaloka Mawatha, they are doing the same thing with Dilrukshi Wickremasinghe.

    When will Sira ever learn
    I think that these detractors are more bent on justifying the President’s sensational statement than being concerned about the functioning of the Commission.

    This is the coclusion para of Gomin Dayasri in the opinion column of the Daily Mirror :

    “Gota is not a political animal; carries an incurable deficiency of not playing to the gallery, fortunately gets his priorities correct. Surely, like his more illustrious brother, ‘Gota’ will not sell the country that he recovered from the terrorists.”

    Clearly the opinion of the speaker and the opinion of Gomin Dayasri are different.

    But Gomin did not mention the country GoRa belongs to. That is USA or Sri Lanka. Gomin further says it was GoRa who recovered the country from the terrorists. Which is the country GoRa recovered ? Who own it now ?

    Mr. Speaker’s statement on the issue is welcome but he is not the final authority and the President, architect of the 19th amendment
    of the constitution, has to give a written statement to the public
    that he,PM and the cabinet will not interfere with the functioning
    of Independent commissions like FCID,CID, Bribery commission, police
    judiciary & Constitutional council.(CC), as in the 19th amendment but
    he may reserve the right to discuss matters with the organizations,
    confidentially in public interest and not make public statements,
    slandering these ind. organizations, to protect any individuals or corrupt people.The President faulted in lashing out at the DG,CIABOC, making a mockery of the 19th amendment,resulting in DG handing the resignation letter and the action of the President shattered the confidence the members of other independent organizations had, and there will be doubts in the minds of the people whether these organi-
    zations will act independently in the future when some one is looking over their shoulders.

    PM Ranil’s silence on the issue irks the general public as he should
    have come out with his party’s position on the statement, made by the president.Are we going back to the dreaded era of the past , is the question on everybody’s lips.
    The President should ask the DG,CIABOC to withdraw the resignation
    letter, other wise the anti Govt. forces like the Jnt. opposition
    will rejoice as a victory on their policies.

    People have lost confidence in the back stabber My3. He must have taken billions to safeguard the crooks he promised to rid of. How could he when he went back on his promise and appointed all the crooks of former parliament to his Government as well and what more can we expect with the same old wine in a new bottle.

    Speaker Karu Jayasuriya last night guaranteed that the independence of the Independent Commissions will remain intact:

    Who is the speaker to guarantee, what is in the constitution.

    Not even the President can interfere.

    The constitution is above the president, the Prime Minister, The speaker and everybody else?

    Constitution is supposed o be the supreme law of the land.

    If impeachment is the only way out, Let it be!

    Mr. Speaker – Now you can tell the President to call back the Director
    General CIABOC to resume duties by asking her to withdraw the resing-
    nation letter as the case against Daham Sirisena’s drunken attack on the night club, died down without a court case and the whole drama at CIABOC was a cover up.

    Thank you , Sir,
