“Journalist Tortured Himself”: CCD Arrests Sujeewa Gamage For Faking His Own Attack

As Colombo Telegraph predicted, the Colombo Crimes Division has placed assaulted journalist Sujeewa Gamage under arrest for fabricating a complaint about his abduction and assault and inflicting injuries on himself.

In lightning quick time the Police said it has transformed its investigation to focus on why the journalist allegedly “fabricated” the events.

Sujeewa Gamage

Police Spokesman Ajith Rohana said that Gamage had used a specific instrument in his home to cause himself injury, which CCD officials had recovered at the journalist’s residence.

Gamage’s lawyer said the police had said they were holding the journalist overnight on Wednesday (17) for trying to bring the government into disrepute. CCD officers who met Gamage’s attorney Namal Rajapakse at the gate said they were going to detain the journalist further because he had had the audacity to retain a lawyer. The CCD arrived at the Colombo National Hospital as soon as Sujeewa Gamage was discharged by his doctors after five days of treatment and took him in for questioning. Gamage and his wife were separately questioned for five or six hours soon after the recovering journalist was discharged from hospital. Eventually the CCD decided to arrest and detain the injured journalist overnight.

However on Thursday (18) the journalist was presented before the Magistrate. During the hearing Gamage sought to provide a confidential statement to the Magistrate under Section 127 of the Code of Criminal Procedure. In that statement, Gamage revealed how the CCD coerced his confession that he had faked his own abduction and torture. The journalist has pledged to reveal more in a public statement on Friday. Lawyers are expressing serious concern for his safety because of his decision to defy the CCD and reveal its horrendous misconduct.

In a clearly emerging pattern, every time the police turn its investigations towards the victim of a crime, the real attackers escape justice. The repetitive pattern will stop victims from complaining about attacks at all, lawyers said.

Unsurprisingly the media in Sri Lanka turned its eyes from the alleged attack on the journalist until the Police revealed after less than 24 hours of investigation that Gamage had made it all up. Despite the fact that the victim was a journalist himself, the media in Sri Lanka has failed to do even the most basic due diligence, media rights activists said. The way the media has reported the story has provided grist to the mill of government supporters who are claiming Gamage has followed in the footsteps of Swiss embassy staffer Garnier Francis. CID said Francis had also faked her alleged assault.

So swift to buy into the police narrative of such incidents, the media in Sri Lanka fail to ask basic questions about why any person – journalist or diplomatic staffer – in the climate of fear that currently prevails in Gotabaya Rajapaksa’s Sri Lanka would put themselves at grave risk of prolonged arrest and prosecution on false charges, and even physical and mental harassment by making false complaints. In Gamage’s case it is unclear why he would cause injuries to himself that even required minor surgery.

Police Spokesman Ajith Rohana was never asked to reveal details of Gamage’s medical records, including the report of the Judicial Medical Officer who conducted an examination of the journalist to determine if the injuries were self-inflicted as the CCD claims.

In 2005-2015 the Rajapaksa Government was at the helm when a Samurdhi officer tied himself to a tree, an army officer beat himself up at a nightclub during an altercation with a politico’s thuggish son. In 2019 the Government started business off by claiming a staffer at the Swiss embassy faked her own abduction. Now the Gotabaya Rajapaksa government’s notorious Colombo Crimes Division has coerced a confession from a journalist claiming that he assaulted and burned himself. In August 2020 the CCD tried to coerce former CID officer SI Mendis to implicate SSP Shani Abeysekera through a false confession claiming that the ex CID director had planted evidence in the Vaas Gunewardane murder investigation.

The CCD once under the command of notorious contract killer former DIG Vaas Gunewardane now on death row has become the Government’s police agency of choice to carry out its witch-hunts. ASP Neville De Zoyza who the journalist Sujeewa Gamage has accused of coercing his confession was a linchpin of the Vaas Gunewardane contract killing operation at the CCD. In 2020 underworld kingpin Makandure Madush was killed in custody three days after being handed over to the CCD although CID was conducting initial investigations after his extradition. In Gamage’s case, the Dematagoda police – where the journalist’s complaint was originally made – handed the case over to the CCD. (By Chinthika De Silva)

            Dear S.C.P:
            Perhaps more accurately, diplomatic immunity over the rule of law in U.K.

            No exoneration of the rogue but upholding of the international convention on diplomatic immunity. Yes, he’s a despicable shameless rogue caught red handed on camera.

            “Diplomatic immunity is a form of legal immunity that ensures diplomats are given safe passage and are considered not susceptible to lawsuit or prosecution under the host country’s laws, although they may still be expelled.” – Wikipedia

              Please mind me….
              He is not rogue.
              It’s reaction of a military trained man to a uncivilised mob. He didn’t pull a gun. Did he…..?
              And…..
              He has guts to show to those uncivilised people that we don’t tolerate that kind of behaviour.
              And…..
              He will do it again whether there is camera or not.
              He should be proud. And we are proud of him.

                Dear S.C.P.,
                Yes, it’s the law but let’s not white wash the dismissal of the verdict previously rendered against Majr General Priyanka Fernando as exoneration.

                It was diplomatic immunity for the crime he committed.

                Also, peaceful protests were and are legal in the U.K. The protesters didn’t break any law. None of the protesters were charged with any offence. But Priyanka Fernando committed a crime.

                Clearly you are intolerant of a peaceful protest but very accommodating of an SL Mjr General in a diplomatic role, i.e, not some rabies infected dog off the street, behaving like that dog and committing an offence/unlawful act.

                What you tolerate and what you don’t tolerate speak volumes on SriLanka’s self-defeating path which began 70+ years ago.

              There are a few matters to note:
              Law and justice are two things apart: we have a lot of unjust laws.
              People who pin their faith in the British system of justice have received yet another wake-up call.
              I doubt if more than a handful in the CT fraternity ever bothered to think about how Julian Assange was treated by the British judicial system. I think that Augusto Pinochet got away lightly.

    srilanka is currently run by a bunch of thieves. Immediately they grabed the power, what they did was worked hard to get exonerated all the high crime investigations and all of them were set free. Those good hearted people’s men such as MP Ranjan was jailed to silence his powerful voice. Today we see unknown and unpopular rural areas, people come regardless of them being youth or older slowly rise up and line up against the systematic suppression being introduced by rulers. This I as I notice is a positive sign of the society. Today I was very pleased having watched the manner people rallied round to support that young lady who fearlessly shed her tears before TV screens all because she did not tolerate the destruction being done by ruling politicians to the rain forest. People would take some time to realize to identify the king thieves because they make every effort to paint their persons as so called patriots that worked hard to save their country from terror. As it is the case, that a barber who would be known to the town as the best hair cutter, however, if he would start perfroming heart surgeries giving some FAKE hope to his patients, it will surely end up in vain. Likewise, today situation in our home country, Rajapakshes should relinquish the power to those who are capable of ruling the nation.

    Only few days left for end of 46th session of UNHRC. Buddhist Sinhalese need not have a ton of documents to take a message there. They know Lankawe history in media freedom, i.e. 174 out of 179. Probably those on the meeting are also watching what is going in Lankawe, Burma like countries. Only thing Buddhist Sinhalese need is rep of them meeting the Core Country team. So the Resolution can have Buddhist Sinhalese problems too mentioned in the Resolution.

Sri Lanka ready to sponsor a scholarship on the understanding the findings and final report handover to C2D as we don’t have enough time to find our self using our own ways. This is to assure we have enough case studies available and many more to be made available to the researcher soon.

    Sri Lankan Buddhist politicians always boast that Sri Lanka is a Buddhist country. But they failed to realize that Lord Buddha summed up the whole of his teachings in one verse – ‘Cease to do evil, Learn to do well, Cleanse your own heart. This is the religion of the Buddha.’ Upon a closer examination of the treatment provided to journalist Gamage as well as to Shani Abeysekera one ponders whether Sri Lanka is a Buddhist Country.

    …..”In a clearly emerging pattern, every time the police turn its investigations towards the victim of a crime, the real attackers escape justice”…….
    In the case of Bhagya, the 19 yr old who highlighted the destruction of Sinharaja she has become the victim within a day or two. Meantime the destructors are yet to be even called for an investigation. The minister admits destruction but says he has called for a REPORT and then APPOINT a Committee etc – usual delaying tactics. Best joke is the Report is from the same people who allowed all this to happen. Having eaten the bait, can they vomit it now !!

    Ha..ha…another self inflicted injury in Dhamma Deepa run by the Sinhala Buddhist Royal family. Tamils from 1956 were inflicting injuries on themselves and even killing themselves and blaming the godly army and police and sinhala thugs. Muslims were assulted, killed and their properties burnt all by selfinfliction. Bandaranayakke too shot himself and blamed the ahinsaka sadhu. Wijekumaranatunge shot himself. Now they are going to release all the murderers because they were falsely implicated where people committed suicide. As a matter of fact the entire country is on a path of self infliction. At the end on gonas like Blind Eagle alias HLD will be left behind in an amude printed with Lankan Lion flag. Well done morons and now go with this story to Geneva along with the synthetic lawyer Namal like what his appachchie did in 1988

    When 6.9 million foolish Sinhalese Buddhist people voted a mass murderer of both Sinhalese and Tamils, what can you expect from him and the criminals against humanity in senior positions in his government?

    Remember he got away because the Sri Lankan state provides him impunity.

    Now the vast majority of Sinhalese Buddhist extremists have endorsed his as their leader. Do they remember all the Sinhalese mothers who were weeping for their sons or husbands made to “disappear” by this evil person:

    He is no different form Hitler because he is responsible for the genocide of Tamils in Vanni.

    I don’t hear any respectable Sinhalese protest against the genocide of Tamils that happened, and still happening in different forms.

    When he comes for the Sinhalese again, nobody will be there for their support.

    Wonder what possible gain journalist Gamage was expecting by inflicting severe injuries on himself & blaming it on govt. If he is so desperate to get asylum abroad, I am sure there are easier ways as another journalist being prosecuted by the authorities for being critical of the regime. Maybe conspiracy theorists would believe that Gamage was beaten up by his ‘Western’ pay masters to make it look bad for the country. Whatever the motives of Mr Gamage, I hope it was worth it, considering the double whammy of beating himself up & a prison sentence for doing so. Would citizens of SL be deterred by the actions of this journalist & the Swiss Embassy worker or are we likely to see more desperate people self harming for some obscure gain from bringing the govt. to disrepute?

    It’s hard to rationalize why anyone would inflict self injury to bring bad repute to a government run by a rogue family and it’s goons which controls the police/CID, the AG, the judiciary and has already demonstrated itself to be above law,…. and face far greater risk than he was already facing as a journalist!

    But the account that our rogue government which has the police, CID, the AG, and the judiciary under its thumb is responsible for the abduction and torture of this journalist and thereafter the coercion of the victim to shift blame to himself is completely rational.

    It’s irrational for the government of rogues to think that anyone other than themselves is responsible for the disrepute it has earnt at every turn domestically and internationally.

    We urgently need an ASTROLOGER to predict when the entire country will be liberated of the current set of Rulers They are doing harm to the people who are/were doing their jobs to bring the country out into civilisation and out of barbarism/ corruption.
    If a democratic country abuses their power, we need the International bodies to get involved to bring salvation to it’s citizens. There is a need to appoint a commission to find out[A] who created and maintain[1] the BBS, Zaharan group and Shiv sena.
    [2] white or black vans [3] in the past Grease Yakkas.
    [B] What happen to the Tsunami Relief Funds; commissions paid by Chinese

    The HAPPY index for 2020 is out. Lanka is at the bottom with Zimbawe and Rwanda, among 150 countries. I wonder why people who claim to be happy with current govt/country ranked them selves so low, where as U.S is ranked at 19 th place.(even after Trump and Covid). As expected scandinavian countries and pacific take up the top spots.

      Sorry to shatter your moment of joy, C.
      India has been ranked 139 out of 149 countries in the list of UN World Happiness Report 2021, which was released on Friday. Finland topped the list.
      [https://www.thehindubusinessline.com/news/world-happiness-report-2021-india-ranks-139-out-of-149/article34115445.ece]
      I also found that
      Pakistan is on 105th, Bangladesh on 101st and China on 84th.
      Sri Lanka is ranked 129th.

      If it is any consolation, I do not take this ranking based on Gallup survey too seriously.

    Remember the vijitha thero monk back in 2014?
    He was found beaten up with his hands tied and mouth gagged on the road side.
    He later issued a statement to the police that he ‘did it to himself’

    SJ, I am not surprised, (I intentionally left it to see your response) only educated buffoons like you take pleasure in seeing others misery while being in denial about your own. Happiness is more subjective than objective. In a hospital when doctor aske you whether you are in pain , you do not look at the rest (worse look at the doctor or nurse) before you answer ???
