Infographic: Gotabaya Rajapaksa’s Inner Circle

President Gotabaya Rajapaksa of Sri Lanka has appointed an alarming collection of alleged perpetrators of war crimes and bureaucrats previously accused of corruption to his new government, said the International Truth and Justice Project. 

The legal research organisation published a trilingual infographic depicting President Rajapaksa’s inner circle, which now includes six Generals and Brigadiers from the President’s Gajaba Regiment, whom he has put in key positions like Commander of the  Army, Chief of Defence Staff, Secretary of Defence and Chief of National Intelligence. Two of the Generals from the Gajaba Regiment served directly under Gotabaya Rajapaksa in 1989 in Matale District, when official records show at least seven hundred Sinhalese disappeared in army and police custody while he was the District Military Coordinator. Fourteen military and police officials now holding crucial official roles served under Gotabaya Rajapaksa during the civil war while he was the powerful and much feared secretary of defence. 

“Sri Lanka is now run by a collection of military officers many of whom will have to answer in a court one day for their complicity in the alleged killings of tens of thousands of their citizens in both 1989 and 2009, as well as alleged corruption,” said the Executive Director of the International Truth and Justice Project, Yasmin Sooka. 

The international community previously invested in an ambitious transitional justice programme for Sri Lanka based on a series of joint UN Resolutions at the Human Rights Council in Geneva. Part of that was a commitment to security sector reform and the vetting and screening. 

“With army generals like these in power it is clear the country is not vetting and screening public officials for their human rights records. However it remains incumbent on member states who sponsored the Resolutions in Geneva to uphold these values,” said Sooka.

      “We……
      THE PEOPLE of this country……..
      Have elected a president in a free and fair election.
      So……”

      Note, more than 57% of the eligible voters refused to vote for a known war criminal who is surrounded by corrupt clan and human rights abusers. Even those who voted for “Strong Man” were deceived by media, saffron brigades, fear mongering, and suffering from mass delusion, kept in a state of being deluded, paranoid, …………… hyped sense of pride, hoped Gota is taking them to a promised land, …………

      The throat slitting Priyankara is also in his inner circle.

      “We…… THE PEOPLE of this country……..

        Hello Native Vedda,

        What S C Passqual says is totally true.
        The President was duly elected and his election reflects the most up to date will of the people.
        >>
        Here are the definitions in your vocabulary.

        Racist: Any Sinhalese
        Saffron brigades: Buddhist monks
        Dumasses: People of this country
        War criminals: Security forces who saved the country by fighting terrorists
        Bunch of morons: Sri Lankans

        I am still unable to identify who represents ‘murderers’ or ‘psychopaths’ in your vocabulary.

          “Racist: Any Sinhalese”

          Of course not all of them are, however a small section of vicious noisy minority of them are, namely the Sinhala/Buddhist fascist tendency who are not only racists but also a bunch of card carrying fascists.

          Rest of the Sinhala speaking are simply stupid just like their Tamil speaking brethren.

          “Saffron brigades: Buddhist monks”

          Definitely Saffron brigades are not Buddhists nor Sinhalese, however it is another active partner in the Sinhala/Buddhists Fascist growing insane movement while the Buddhists and Sinhalese are being cow down to tow their Fascistic misadventure.

          Therefore there is an urgent need to liberate the poor Sinhalese from Sinhala/Buddhists and Buddhist from Sinhala/Buddhism.

          “Dumasses: People of this country”

          No, its you and your jealousy driven/prone dumbass fellow Sinhala/Buddhists.
          The rest of them are plain stupid.

          “War criminals: Security forces who saved the country by fighting terrorists”

          Saved the country!!
          Oh boy hope you were not born yesterday.
          VP saved the country from IPKF while these war criminals were hiding behind VP’s bum or their woman folks or inside presidents official residence. I never heard these cowards fighting foreign forces instead they have been killing innocent people since 5th April 1971.

          ” Bunch of morons: Sri Lankans”

          Who are these Sri Lankans? Can you define and tell us how they come to be called Sri Lankan, basically could you define Sri Lankans, they are more like Lankies.

          “I am still unable to identify who represents ‘murderers’ or ‘psychopaths’ in your vocabulary.”

          You know who they are, instead you have been celebrating them as heroes, patriots, Ranavirus, ……electing them as president, prime minister, . including the other psychopath VP who helped Mahinda win the war and two elections

            “Therefore there is an urgent need to liberate the poor Sinhalese from Sinhala/Buddhists and Buddhist from Sinhala/Buddhism.”

            There is no urgent need to liberate Sinhalayo from Sinhala/Buddhists and Buddhist from Sinhala/Buddhism. You are free to have your dumb assessment about Sinhalayo and Buddhists.
            However, there is an urgent need to liberate Sinhala Buddhists from racist Wella Ala politicians, Wahabi Mus-ling extremists and fundamentalists, Evange-lists and Un- Born Again.

            Hello Native Vedda,

            Thank you for the clarifications on your vocabulary.

            There was an additional observation you have made, which is reproduced below.

            “War criminals: Security forces who saved the country by fighting terrorists”

            Saved the country!!
            Oh boy hope you were not born yesterday.

            You are entitled to your opinion as much as I am.
            You have expressed your opinion on “security forces saved the country”, which is a reflection of your thinking.
            My view is different.
            If not for the sustained effort by the security forces, Sri Lanka would not be what it is.
            Conversely, what it would been, is mere speculation.
            That is why, Sri Lankans will always remain grateful to the security forces.
            Such a view does not constitute carte blanche to the security forces in other areas.

            The shameless Sinhala/Buddhist converts regularly go to India on begging visit then blame everything Indian. Remember recently Hindians donated $600 + $300 Millions to stop you lot from your regular visit.

          It is the parliament comprising of elected officials representing all parts of the country and all peoples of this country that provides equal representation of (1) the country and (2) the mixed mandate of the whole of this country.

          It’s the parliament that’s paramount in our democracy. The presidency is an executive office that must work with the prime minister representing the parliamentary majority (often established through a multi-party alliance). Clearly, those who voted for Gotabaya haven’t grasped this constitutional reality yet; neither has the President himself.

            Hello Sugandh,
            Thank you for your comments.
            Your views are consistent with my views.
            The MPs in the parliament, once elected will represent varied views across the country.
            Where we differ:
            The parliament has been dissolved constitutionally and the President does not have the opportunity to work with the parliament now. The previous parliament does not represent the present political will of the people.
            A good analysis needs be carried out to understand (1) why Mahinda Rajapakshe was rejected in 2015 notwithstanding the success against LTTE (2) why Ranil was rejected in 2019.
            I think voters may be smarter than we are willing to concede.

He goes on and on about this “excellent healthcare system” that we have .But we know quite well that when he suffered a little hiccup in his cardiac system, he buggered off to Singapore . Why is our “excellent health system” not good enough for him.?

          Did the 43% of eligible voters tell you that they voted for Gota precisely because either Gota is not a war criminal or indeed a war criminal?

          Is it that confusing?

            I never said that 47% of eligible voters voted for President Gotabhaya Rajapakshe because he is not a war criminal. If you jump to conclusions that is your bloody problem.

            Anyway, the issue of ‘War Criminal’ is irrelevant because he did not commit ‘War Crimes’. ‘War Crime’ charge against Rajapakshes and Sri Lankan Armed Forces was invented by guys who got mad because they did not listen to them and stopped military campaign to save the ass of megalomaniac Piripakaran.

        Why don’t you compare Sri Lanka with countries with high per capita income and high IQ? Most of them, including the country where you live have miserably failed to control COVID-19. These countries can learn lessons from countries like Nepal, Vietnam, Sri Lanka.

        ‘Koti’ who lost in the fight with ‘Sinhayo’ get some kind of a ‘KICK’ by slinging mud on Sri Lanka, insulting and humiliating Rajapakshes and Sinhalayo. A sign of ‘INFERIORITY COMPLEX’.

          Where i am living is in Germany – they ve been doing a way better than any other grand nation. I had microbiology as one of subjects at the Uni.. so I know why the western world is hard hit by the virus than any where else. BCG, climate, demographics and several other reasons play a huge role according to the researchers. I keep me updating my knowlwedge almost everydays why our island nation failed to do the due…. it was the super stupidty of Rajaapakshes that have always been playing with the lives in that island.

          For them, punnakku eaters are their ploy.
          .
          . Where you are livinng is Melbourne Australia – there too they ve been doing well with containment of COVID 19 but our ballige puthas led srilanka, though an island havebeen unable to do the least regarding that,

    I hope people give GR 2/3 majority and allow him the job people expected him to do. In a country full of undisciplined people, western and Tamil diaspora backed journalists, GR is not allowed to do his job. They want the country remains ever developing. He needs a disciplined people to obey his instructions and serve people. That is why tri-forces have been appointed for these positions. He needs keep eye on who are creating disturbances to the good work an report on who are not doing their job. I am happy people who are not doing their duties are fearful. If they do their jobs efficiently, nothing to worry about.

MR. So, GR can do ONLY what MR approves of. And don’t forget that the PM has more powers than the Prez. and MR KNOWS how to exercise his Powers.

        Demala LTTE terrorist barbarians led by Piripakaran that slaughtered Native Sinhalayo who gave citizenship to their ancestors from Hindusthan
        OR
        Rajapakshes who took the bold step to eliminate Piripakaran and Demala LTTE terrorists and gave peace of mind to people in this country (Sinhala, Demala, Muslim) who went through hell for three decades due to Demala (Tamil) terrorism?

        Demala (Tamil) terrorism was much worse than COVID-19. So COVID-19 is nothing for Rajapakshes.

    GR is more intelligent than MR. Mr is street smart. To run a country, one needs to be intelligent. All people against GR expected him to be an autocratic leader. However, he changed his style as he is a situational leader. When Uni kids protest, his opponents expected him to ask police to attack them. He responded with consultative approach. Protesters have become communicators and negotiators. Even with 2/3 majority, he will educate MR on good governance as ultimately benefits will be reaped by people, MR can remain for ever. So MR will listen to GR. Opponents lost the plot. So, let him to govern the country for 5 years and then assess the performance. More you guys push him, people will give more and more. GR is fighting with brain. He planned this for 3 years, He will not give up how much opponents bark.

If GR is really intelligent as you claim, he should know All about his Older brother MR and do as MR says, if he is serious about completing his First Term as Prez.

    I any country, the President has an inner circle who can be trusted. Even in Case of Julias Ceaser closer, he had an inner circle who were waiting to grab power. Ceaser, when stabbed, said you to Brutus. The inner circle of Gota is used to Killing people. Hence pulling out a Gun is nothing new to a member of the inner circle. Gota should know that there is a proverb in Tamil which says that” for a yellow piece of thread, the Sinhala man cut his friend’s neck. So long as the period is suitable for Gota, everything looks okay with people praising him and clapping him. But it appears that he is facing COVID 19 crisis is linked with the Economic and Election crisis. Usually, relations and the final results may be ethnic riots.

    Militarization of the country’s administration has gained speed since Gotabaya Rajapaksa’s assumption of office as president. Sooka is not cooking stories, she is documenting facts known to others. All those who fought and won the war are heroes. Over 35,000 Sinhalese soldiers died in battle according to the government itself. There is no dispute about them. The dispute is regarding those rogue elements in the army who brutally killed innocent civilian Tamils.

    The Mirusuvil massacre is a good example. Army Seargent Sunil Ratnayake killed 8 civilians, including 3 underaged children, for no reason/ These civilians have gone to inspect their homes vacated when the army advanced and occupied Mirusuvil. Unashamedly, Gotabaya Rajapaksa has given presidential pardon to a convicted criminal. His conviction was confined by the Supreme Court of Srilanka.

    It is not a valid argument that Britain and US committed war crimes during the war against Iraq. Because your neighbour jumps into the well and commits suicide, you too commit the same crime.

    Look back a little. After the war, we went immediately to reconstruction because the dreadful, horrendous, villainous Rajapaksas looked ahead and set up one project after another to repair, rebuild and develop. That’s because they don’t care about human rights or national development. Who de-mined, set up Baily bridges, repaired roads, cleaned up wells and kept an eye on LTTE cadres who were transitioning from terrorism? The forces. Why? Because government servants like their seats and desks and don’t like action. The Rajapaksas wanted action, so they bypassed the inactive. Let’s crucify them for that. They found that the unequivocal military expectation of getting a job done works in development. So sections of government that are related to security are now under military and police people. If you like, we could just get a bunch of drug dealing trishaw drivers to oversee those ares. Would that please the displeased? War crimes is a convenient fall back position for people who prefer inaction here. Our choice is action or inaction. Do we make the effort to move or do we stupefy into a morass of decrepitude? I know what the UN, Britain and the States would prefer.

      Sandra Fernando,
      “Government servants like their seats and desks and don’t like actions. The Rajapakse’s wanted action, , so they bypassed the inactive”.
      I don’t know you are a government servant or Rajapkse’s, But you are insulting all the government servants, armed forces including the current President Gotabaya because Rajapkse’s also were in the government service.. Srilanka did not only had LTTE problem but it had many other problems including two times JVP insurgency, number of riots, natural hazards like Tsunami, malaria, floods etc. and Rajapakse’s were here in this country and the country was ruled by governments other than Rajapakse’s.
      You are correctly identified Rajapakse’s as drug dealers. More than that they are armed dealers, money deaders (bribe), and stealers.
      Unfortunately, the country faced several plots and coups by Rajapakse’s. Mahinda Rajapakse thought that he was the king of the nation. Truth is his kingdom was stolen by his brother Gotabaya. it was a well planned coup by Gotabaya which was planned and implemented. Today, no one talks about Mahinda or Namal. The first thing Gota did was the propaganda against Mahinda. You may remember he blamed Mahinda for erecting his Posters and asked to remove the posters. He wants to remove the 19th amendment. Why, he wants to control Mahinda’s power completely and establish his kingdom. Do you think Gota will give the powers back to Mahinda or Namal? Never.
