Jayampathy Wickramaratne Caught With Pants Down For Selling Duty Free Land Cruiser

UNP National List MP Kodagoda Hitige Jayampathi Rohanakumara Wickramarathna alias Dr. Jayampathy Wickramaratne PC who was a vociferous campaigner against the corruption of the Mahinda Rajapaksa led former regime has been accused of selling his duty free car permit.

Jayanpathy is also a politbureau member of Lanka Samasamaja Party (majority group) and the Parliamentary Secretary to the Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe.

On February 13, 2017, Rs 95,27,562.50 ( USD 62,500.00 X 152.4410) worth a brand new Toyota Land Cruiser was imported using Wickramaratne’s duty free car permit by Bestair Services (PVT) ltd. The vehicle was registered with the Commissioner of Motor Traffic on June 14, 2017 and transferred to the name of the vehicle permit buyer Yaden International (PVT) ltd. on August 22, 2017.

    When I expressed my concerns about this man’s integrity and honestly some people tried to find fault with me, claiming that Jayampathy is man with a very high degree of credibility.
    At least now gullible people should accept the defeat that they were completely wrong and should reject this man who was appointed to as an MP through the UNP National List.
    It demonstrates that this exam cheat has not leant at all from the costly experience he had at the Science Faculty, Peradeniya University for exam cheating.

        When will Colombo Uni award Wimal Sangili Karuppan Weerawansa his PhD, his was due many years ago. He should have been given Nobel Peace Prize for urging the armed forces to carpet bomb the North.

      It was not only Jayampathy who was caught red handed by the supervisors, bringing in notes and even text books to the exam hall in 1973. There were 7 or 8 others who were banned from sitting the Chemistry special final exam. There were few others who threw the notes and the text books out of the exam hall from the back door before getting caught. These smart, lucky cheats are doing very well now in foreign countries. Generally Sri Lankans are not HONEST. Dishonesty is in their genes. Jayampathy Wickramaratne, the cheat, is not out of place in the parliament since every parliamentarian is a cheat.

        Just a small correction Indrajith. The fateful year was 1972(1968 GSQ) not 1973. On the fateful day almost everyone cheated except the ones who informed the Professor about all kind of cheating going on during the previous papers and the ones who were really timid. However, only a few got caught .

      Was he the only one? Many are doing it. That is the perk the politicians get.After all it was passed by the parliament, because everybody in parliament benefited from it, even the JVP.

      He was not the only one…. Ravi Penthouse etc , but agree these numbers and amounts are much smaller than Mahinda Rajapaksa years, where ZMaginfa Rajapaksa and Cronies pocketed US $600 million from the Hambantota Harbor deal with the Chinese loan, and Gotabaya Rajapaksa pocketed U $30 million with the MIG deal, and Lasnthan Wickramatunga was killed for that.

      Nagananda,

      Let me clearly put my opinion I am sure if you have had Jayampathi’s opportunity, you too would have sold the permit.

      Ranil was open when he was bringing the duty free car deals as it was another way of compensating Parliamentarians. Unfortunately, you never put forward an argument that showed either parliamentarian are over compensated and so duty free is over doing or Parliamentarians’ compensation methods are inducing corruption and recognizing bribe and commissions as compensations. But, rather you were top on the list to pick on your enemies selling their permits, but you ignored to be here regularly when these deal were brought out to light.

      You are not anything different from all other racist Sinhala Intellectuals. Jayampathi’s records coming out are not going to making you any better. You and Jayampathy are another shadow of destructive SLFP-UNP divisions and quarrels of Lankawe. You want to be famous by competing in presidential election. Jayampathi wants to abolish EP and earn name on that. Abolishing EP may be beneficial for Sinhalese or not (Tamils not in that game; Even Yahapalanaya justifiers – TNA doesn’t give a damn on that) . But you two are not different from Ranil or Old King, on your rogue deals. One of you may see a setback if constitution making get out as successful or dooms to fate. But neither of you will relent on seeking name. The constitutional change will be prominent stage setup for you too to face off on your games for names. You have Kandy Ayatollahs’ backing. Jayampathi has Ranil’s foxy technique maneuvering.

    • 7

      My assessment is Jayampathi is an equal betrayer like you; though less racist than you. But your shameless public racism peeked, when you gave up on opposing UNP’s CJs dismissal games when a Sinhala Hero was crowned without the Tamil Puppet Sripavan’s term was extended. You withdraw your cases challenging Supreme Court with faulty explanations when the Tamil puppet left. I doubted your intentions from the very start in your recent challenging Supreme Court as you were trying to show you as smarter lawyer than the puppet.

      Keep seeking cheap name building. Best wishes for Jayampathi to lose on splitting the country as by making a new constitution because you if he wins you can become EP only for part. Further, if abolish the EP, your dreams bound to go doomed too.

      By selling these duty free permits these parasites earn miilions of tax free money for their personal use. On the other hand the buyer imports a vehicle of his choice without paying the duty. If they did not have a permit they would have paid the duty to the state. This is a criminal act as good has stealing money from the state coffers and the public. Is it not possible to take legal action against the buyer for not paying the duty to the state and the permit holder as an accessory.

        Auditory hallucinations–loosely defined as hearing something when there’s no actual noise to hear–are one of the more stereotypical and recognizable symptoms of those who have psychotic disorders like schizophrenia. Among those with mental illness, the most common form of this particular symptom is the experience of hearing people talking, known colloquially as “voice-hearing” or, more technically, as auditory verbal hallucinations (AVH).

    By the way why a National list MP is issued a duty free vehicle permit? They have no vote base, they don’t do any electoral politics. Even this crook Jayamapathy was given a brand new another vehicle by Ranil. The issue was raised by Hon Dinesh Gunawardena in the parliament.

    They bankrupted the whole nation by the likes this man above Dr Jayampathy Wickramaratne.
    The whole country 70% of the Buddhists were allowed to. steal ,murder, and do drugs on large scale.
    All this happened during the last 70 years, while the other half of the Buddha worshippers were allowed to SLAUGHTER THE TAMILS.
    NOW the Tamils are barricaded in their homes away from the barbaric Army and Police.
    What is Sampanthar and Wigneswaran doing about it.???
    Can the North and East live a normal life earning a living with the earnings from Government Industrial projects with the help of foreign aid ??
    President goes there to talk to the Northerners but nothing to show until now.
    We know everything had to be passed through the Racist Greedy Monks and the Racists.
    Oh are we talking about Lord Buddhas Virtue and Wisdom??

      Excellent analysis: Lord Buddha preached love, and non-violence; But in Sri Lanka the so called Buddhist Monks behaves the opposite of what Lord Buddha practiced and preached.
      The curse for Sri Lanka started when the Buddhist clergy instead of preaching Lord Buddha’s teaching preached hated, racism that created divide in the country.
      Their entry into politics is also against Lord Buddha;s preaching.
      The are supposed to refrain from politics, power, and greed for wealth.
      In Sri Lanka it is just the opposite.
      It is too late even Lord Buddha cannot put things right.

    Why? There’s no control from this government.
    They’re living a life of ” FREE FOR ALL” They call in the western countries ” living the life of Riley’s.”
    70 years of Greed in the name of their subjects is beggars belief.

    Phillipine Vice President has just today warned of China Debt Trap cites Srilanka as heading that way, yes the DEBT TRAP , won’t be even paid by our Great Grand children to live a free life in Apeh Aanduwe!!

    Not to worry Folks Our Greedy Politicians and their families , including the Greedy Hamuudruwes of
    Malwatte and Asgiriyas have been fattened up by your wealth Folks, they all will live happily from the stolen wealth of the Nation for Decades.
    Yes STOLEN from the North , South, East and West including the Central provinces.

    I don’t think there is a single politician who would say no to a net profit of at least Rs 25m from selling the permit. Money, I can only dream of saving in my entire life time.

    Even if the vehicle is kept for the full term, a tidy profit is still possible because no import duty was paid. Yet, I can’t bring my old car, which I have bought without resorting to any funds from SL (in fact, I have contributed to the FOREX reserves of SL) , for my personal use in SL without paying the duty of an equivalent brand new car, thanks to the wisdom of RK, the self proclaimed best Finance Minister ever in SL. Accordingly, this is probably the only country where assets with a useful service life are valued without depreciation for tax purposes. This is the unique country of yahapalanaya.

    In UK, only the PM & senior ministers are given official vehicles but the vehicles belong to the state & not to the individual. A few years ago, during the run up to the Brexit referendum, a racist yob knifed a popular young MP, Jo Cox, for her outspoken support for refugees when she was driven to her constancy office by her secretary ( as she didn’t have a car) but despite the outrage, no politician demanded official vehicles or body guards for their protection. Yet, in this third world country of ours, Politicians, Provincial Councillors & all their cronies amounting to hundreds, if not thousands, are given, literally, a license to print money in the form of import duty concessionary permits & enjoy a life surrounded by back up vehicles & body guards at state expense. It’s not rocket science to understand that SL will never prosper with all this blatant corruption & waste of public funds. The day this privilege is abolished & have a fair tax system for everybody, we will have people with integrity in the Parliament & we will also see pigs fly.

      The above mentioned Racists are only on one way track , destruction of this land while living in Denial.
      Your comments are always ONESIDED , Totally in support for Jarapassa Racist Thieves.

      Others in this forum are for the betterment of this country for all to live peacefully and prosperously.
      We/ are the Patriots , who expose the faults from both sides , why ?? Because we love this country.
      Many who supported the Yahapalana government are commenting mostly against the policies of this Yahapalana government , that does not mean since they supported Sirisena government , they need to keep silent and agree with the government policies and actions taken by them since the Rainbow revolution in January 2015???
      Do we let them to wreck our country??

      They’re on the right path But the Nation Wreckers of the Past government and their thieves including the Mahasangha sighting Religion are destroying this Nation.
      These people are not PATRIOTS FOR SURE!!

      This website is for a better future for us and our country.
      We need to correct the wrongs of the government policies.

      The Racist policies and the atrocities of the Medmulla Ballas ARE over.

      ITS THE DUTY OF THE PATRIOTS , NOT ALLOWING THOSE THIEVES BACK TO POWER.
      THAT WILL BE A POLITICAL SUICIDE CERTAINLY IF WE DO.!!!
      Take this as a Warning Patriots!!!

      All Srilankans need a better life not only the Crooks and the Thieves who stole from the State to live a Life of Rileys.

    The biggest political question that this Wickremaratne robbery raises for sri lankans is what type of government suits them most.When you have democracy it boils down to corruption by 225 MPs.When you have a dictator like Rajapaksa then its corruption by one family and its cronies like Dullas.Booruwansa, Johnston.Aluthgamamage etc.So Sri Lanka is essentially a lost cause.

    I think most people do not understand the truw story. The appointment of Jayampathi wickramrathne itself is a fraud. Jayampathi Wickramrathne, A LSSPer (LSSP destroyed Srinhale for Sinhala people) had been appointd a s a National list M. paid handsomely, but he is getting a Car permit too. Now. he is waiting to the electoral list too. Ranil’s constitution, people says is a fraud to cover up something sinister. He uses buddhism and soverneighty as the two focal points of discussion. but the the bomb is the electorate restructurng. Electorates are redrawan to separate language and ethnic groups after which Sinhala people become minorities in their electorate. That plan initially was by CBK. Now, Ranil wants to do it. There is some connection of the Central bank robbery also to that plan. That is what people talk. Because of that, What is coming after the constitution is electorate restructing that will be the most dengerous for Sinhala people. Jayampathi wickramarathne is one architect of that. Ranil is not happy at all the central bank robbery was caught. there is many more to it.

    To say the least, Jayampathy Wickremeratne has demonstrated
    publicly that he is dishonest. It is this same dishonest man who
    now wants to foist a new Constitution on the Sri Lankan public.
    He has joined someone who has proved he is even more dishonest
    and not a Mr Clean, Dr Ranil Wickremesinghe. So do we need such
    a constitution from the rogues?

    These mother and sisters sellers wants to keep VP alive in order to keep their dirty money games.

    Put a bomb here and there then people won’t be know what’s going around other than for their own safety

    Central bank bombing……. CID have to look into the matter what has happened at that time,may be big bigger than the present bond scam.
    These crooks when come down to big dirty deals they are like friends no Tamils no Sinhalese no Muslims they like just human.

    Why VP wants to partly take off the roof of daladamaligawa if its him he wants to take the whole building away.

    Just got the access to air field of Intl air port with bus load of fighters and with heavy weapons without killing any one

    Lalith,G dissanayaka,premadasa,true peace loving kumaratunga,…..etc really a target for VP but he got the name for it and made him as a super hero so why not

    These are my assumptions

    Selling the car permit ,well he rather wouldn’t sell his siblings.

    Rather than Sinhala le,Tamil le,monkey le,crow le etc

    Why can’t we all unite as sri Lanka’ns and make peace for our future son’s and daughters

    We all got all the resources we need thank fully rather than number one tea why can’t be all number one in the world.

    Most people criticize corruption only through pure jealousy because they don’t get the opportunity to play out tax payers money and get rich quickly and not because they are honest.

    This phenomenon is very clear when examining the conduct of politicians who were consdidered ‘clean’ and other beauracrats. They behave differently when out of power and when in power.
    Theres only a handful of honest people in this country who’s integrety cannot be challenged

    This is the ugly truth in the country considered as the Premier Buddhist country of the world.

    This “crime” where JW sells his own duty free car makes poor news compared to those of others who have played out public money that does not belong to them, or have been involved in “forced disappearances.”

    Let this case be not taken in isolation. Let there be a full list of all those who availed themselves of this facility and sold the vehicle later, so that J.W. shares the blame with the rest, than just singly. That would be fair, wouldn’t it?

    I also feel bashing JW for an indiscretion committed 40 years ago is not on. This leads me to urge those who have vented their spleens here search their consciences and if still convinced they have never committed a wrong doing in their entire lives – knowingly or otherwise – to come forward and TRUTHFULLY state so, if that is possible.

    I don’t know this man Wickremaratne, but I think the media focus on this story isn’t worth the effort, particularly when BIGGER issues of national importance have been allowed to be snowed over.

      Absolutely agree, Pygmalion. We should not be “hunting” for any excuse to scream our heads off, with or without substance.

      At the end of the day, Jayampathy W sold HIS car. Perhaps his roof collapsed and he had to, or had to undergo heart surgery, so he had to.

      What is more ignoble – robbing the country or selling your own duty free car?

    Why is this news? Almost everyone does it. JRJ the great Satan Royalist started this to supplement the incomes of MPs so they won’t resort to the cheap 100 rupee bribery of the SLFP days. Almost everyone gets a fair chance to make a few million. The fault is with the corrupt Mudalalis, CIS type crooked wheeler dealers of the PTL type, crooked finance company bosses, and crooked money brokers and drug smuggler muslims etc. Do not blame the MPs

    A lot of time South Asians including Indians, Ceylonese, and Pakis are corrupt and dishonest. They look for shortcuts. They are devoid of any brains or intellect but still think they have a divine right to govern. They lack the morals of the people following Confuscian work ethic or the Japanese ways. Also lacking amongst us is the protestant work ethic. It is in our Genes to be corrupt, jealous, gossip, wish others ill will, and to succeed by hook or by crook and mostly by crook as all our current and previous leaders have shown. Accept Christ and you will see dishonesty will have no room in the Kingdom of Heaven. That is the only salvation. When you accept Christ, the prosperity gospel will propel you and you do not have to worship ceramic statues and stone statues and you will not have to steal or sell car permits because our god will provide for you. Look at the Ceylinco group.

      BornAgain,,
      Heaven and hell are right here now. Some are in heaven – they think they are, on account of small matters like Duty Free (saleable) Vehicle Permits.
      Others, living below the Poverty Line, are partly in hell, and partly in heaven at times, eg. when imbibing cheap liquor or eating at cheap Thosai boutiques.

      BornAgain can you recall Christ smashing the idols? Property that was not his to smash. Can you remember him cursing a fig tree and whipping money-lenders? Not a good way to behave is it? They are our politician’s standards.

    The whole team of 2015 January 8th group which are politically corrupted ,does matter they belongs to UNP, SLFP,( CBK 0fraction) JVP, TNA, MC, LSSPs or Splint group of Sri lanka Communist Party of Cotta Road; it has been proven ,that undoubtedly are Enemies to Democracy and unfriendly to the principle interest People of Sri lanak?
    That is how “Rainbow Revolution” give birth to Good Governances and Rule of Law for our land by leadership of Mathripala Sirisena won 6.2 million mandate ?
    It was ‘miracle’ of Democracy, that any gang of few-people can be misled millions of people by given broken promised to Publically by the Public Elections?
    That is lessons has learn from last 2015, 8 January the relevant mandate is not aim at govern the nation, it was MANADTE for political corruptions by MS led regime.
    Therefor the given concentric of mandate is longer validly to govern by MS regime .
    All political actions has taken by UNP Ranil Wicks led regimes that last 32 months bring, whole heap of anti- Establishment policies and destroy basic norms of Democratic Governances!!

    I have said this repeatedly. I say it again. Remove immediately this “DUTY FREE” allowance. No person, entity or ministry, minister, should be allowed a Duty Free item. What is dutiable to the ordinary citizen, is dutiable to ALL. As far as I am aware, only the Queen of England pays no taxes. In Canada, The U.S., etc ALL pay taxes and duty.

      we should stand against DUTY FREE as well as their unethical pension system,what normal government servants should serve 30 years or more to get 75% for pension (correct me if i am wrong) but they are eligible just after 5 years in parliament.most of them are not present most of the time,we get together and make voice against it

        Lal, fully agree. They should just be paid an all-inclusive allowance. They should also be allowed pensions ONLY after at least three terms and only at the rates of State employees. Both these parties have well and truly let the nation down. Also, ALL earning salaries must pay taxes.

    These guys who are sent to Parliament by voters and those who enter the Parliament through the back door get a duty free car permit worth US$60,000. Ordinary citizens who work in foreign countries for several years get only a duty free allowance of US$ 1,000.00 when they bring their used household belongings. If you bring even a used 55” TV, that is considered as a luxury item and taxed heavily.

    Under the prevailing law, no one is entitled to any tax free privilege unless there are compelling reasons to grant such exemptions.

    The law provides for granting of such tax exemptions only in the PUBLIC INTEREST and always under strict conditions to prevent abuse of government tax revenue. Every person granted such a privilege is required to pay all levies exempted at the time of importation in the event intends to sell any such item.

    This is the reason as to why over 115 MPs and Cabinet Ministers who abused these tax free permits to rob govt revenue are charged for Corruption.

    As the spineless Commissioners of the CIABOC, failed to enforce law against these criminal elements, now there is a action initiated against them as well.

    Yet, people should not forget that Sri Lanka is a FAILED STATE, where one class in the society, the corrupt politicians, are allowed to go scot free. And this is the fundamental and compelling reason for me to consider contesting for the office of the Executive President in 2020, to bring all cheats to justice.
