Justice Minister Wijeyadasa Corrupt Since Time Of COPE Chairmanship: Photos Reveal

Exposing the conflict of interest between the Justice Minister Wijedasa Rajapakshe and the Chairman of Avant Garde Nisssanka Senadhipathi, Field Marshal Sarath Fonseka challenged Minister Rajapakshe to explain the truth regarding his personal relationship between himself and Nissanka Senadhipathi.

Avant Garde scandal 7The photographs which have emerged showing a close familial bond between Justice Minister Wijeyadasa Rajapakshe and Chairman of Avante Garde were taken in January 2006.

Rajapakshe, a former member of the SLFP and a state minster of the Rajapaksa led administration had a close personal relationship with Senadhipathi during the time he was appointed as Chairman of the parliamentary watchdog COPE.

A few weeks ago Wijeyadasa Rajapakshe speaking to the media lied about his relationship with Senadipathi, going on record saying that he has had no dealings with the controversial businessman.

The photos released by Sarath Fonseka show a close relationship going beyond a proffessional one, with families of the duo seen together.

Following the 2005 presidential elections, President Mahinda Rajapaksa appointed him as the Minister of the State Banking Development in November 2005, however, he resigned thereafter in April 2006 and took over as Chairman of COPE in July 2006.

Rajapakshe said in several interviews that the Attorney General had consistently maintained that there was no criminal case against the Company.

However, earlier Colombo Telegraph revealed that Rajapakshe had lied, providing documentary proof that the Attorney Generals Department had advised that Gotabaya Rajapaksa and Senadipathi were both criminally liable for their hand in the Avante Garde scandal.

As Colombo Telegraph reported in March, there was high embarrassment for two people who were openly supporting the Avant Garde case. One was Tilak Marapana PC, who is counsel for Senadipathi and also advisor to the Anti Corruption sub committee of the government. Other is Wijedasa Rajapakshe, Minister of Justice. At a meeting of the committee, when Anura Kumara Dissanayake, the JVP leader and Champika Ranawaka, the JHU leader raised questions, Solicitor General Suhada Gamlath could not keep quiet. He disclosed that Marapana directed him not to object when an application is made to have the passport of Senadipathi returned for him to travel to Nigeria. Gamlath said he checked with Justice Minister Rajapakshe. He had said he was asked not to object and go slow with the case.

Law and Order Minister Tilak Marapana, last November resigned from his ministerial portfolio amidst calls to step down over the controversy surrounding the Avant Garde issue.

Field Marshall Sarath Fonseka today released twenty seven photos which shows the families of Wijeyadasa Rajapakshe and the Avante Garde family in holidaying mood together in Disney Land dating back to January 2006. Field Marshal Sarath Fonseka challenged Minister Rajapakshe to explain the truth regarding his personal relationship between himself and Nissanka Senadhipathi.

According to Field Marshall Sarath Fonseka these pictures were taken by Nissanka Senadhipathi.

    How many people we may have been friendly with in the past (2006) whom are linked to scandals of this nature now(2015). If the minister is guilty, then all associates of Senadipathi must be equally guilty, including Fonseka.

      The problem here is not mere association.

      He has been trying to give colossal sums of money to politicians and people of influence. The people he is trying to give money to, and the sums of money he is trying to give, indicates that he has something to hide. He is trying to curry favour and buy influence with money. If his objective is altruistic there are many old-age homes and orphanages where his money will see better use.

      He is trying to sell the name of the Ranaveeru (soldiers) for his nefarious money making activities. The little one has seen of this Senadipathi guy shows that he is a despicable character. The only people who are more despicable than him are the people who have taken money from his.

        “.. indicates that he has something to hide..”

        What the fuck do you think he has to hide, seriously? Don’t write nodanna f.. nonsense.

        Now, since you are trying to fuck the whole Senadhipathy and Wijedasa family by look at the photos, can you tell us the “something wrong that he has to hide”?

        Do you think your fucking hallucinations meet with reality?

          Silva,

          Do not talk like a modaya and your language explains
          your character. Looking at these pictures, one could fathom the large amount of money spent on this holiday
          Can any ordinary Sri Lankan Family afford to spend so much of foreign currency on a single holiday. It is one of them who foot the bill and for what reason is the question.

          The voters and educated and will get to know,soon

            Lanka Watch (collectively),

            The problem with modayas like you is that you think the world exists inside your peanut brain. What fxx do you expect me to say when you dribble such nonsense? What is the ass-pain you all develop when someone spends his own money? Why do you all scratch your peanuts when Senadipathy and Wijedasa spend their money touring Dysniland or any fxxing land? Are you jealous or completely gone insane? Why don’t you all go and check with the psychologist? Do you all say Senadipathy was doing illegal arms smuggling business or something like that? What is wrong in WR and NS keeping company or touring down any fucking land? Do they need your permission and approval? What the hell do you have got to do with their business and family affairs? You all cannot keep from peeing at another’s bed room and wank at the expense of your own dicks. You all are like those jokers who are now picketing over there hanging from fences and bus halts like old monkeys agitating against budget proposals, nonexistent EPF ETF cuts, privatization etc. all of which are desperate attempts to bring the defeated rogue Rajapakshas to power. Senadipathy was doing a business that had been legally established and with partnership and auspices of the GOSL, MOD. It even had mandates and weapons from international bodies and countries. That operation was an internationally acknowledged, critical mission involving international maritime operations, laws, security arrangements and pirate deterrents. It involved 6000 plus workforce, Rakna Lanka-an arm of MOD, SL Navy, GOSL, ex-servicemen, weapons and combat expertise, training, international law and even marketing side. The stupid fuckers who are discharging hilarious nonsense from both ends of the tube throwing utter nonsense from their own homegrown peanut garden are like cockroaches feeding on the leftovers of kallathoni Kili Maharaja, Rajithaya, Arjunaya et al who are after the despoliation of the business done by Senadhipathy. That buffalo Sira fell for their trap by “pirating” the pirate prevention business of Senadhipathi, a feast even the most notorious Somalian pirates would not have dreamed of committing! Now what? News is out NS is going to take legal action under international jurisdiction and claim damages in the range of US$ 3 billion! Ruvan, srilal, the dumbest suckers one would encounter, and the JVP buffaloes that had a terrible anal itching for “something catching”, if had to, would you pay this amount for us, on behalf of us and the tax payer? What about the lost jobs of 6000 odds, will you underwrite that India or another country would not take this business destroyed by you into their hands? If NS’s business and weapons were illegal then how does SL Navy carry out such an illegal business using the self-same illegal weapons? Who is going to monitor, audit and account the business done by Navy. Do you underwrite the income is not misused, robbed or business mismanaged and income lost? Is there any law permitting security forces engage in business which is purely a civilian matter? [Edited out]

            Banjiappu,

            I don’t know this NS personally. In fact this man’s money surely must have ended in Gota’s et al hands and which in turn must have been used to inflict heavy damages on UNP, for whitevanning people, Rajapaksha mischiefs and crimes etc. But that is a different story and must be dealt under a different jurisdiction realm. What I say is that this NS was doing a legal business generating income for the country and for many ex-servicemen and families. He has improved his business, range of operations and greatly improved the income thus making it a successful private entrepreneurship. It is this type of entrepreneurialship that a country must strive to develop if it is to break free from its low income belt. The governments duty is not destroying such a venture but to closely monitor and impose taxes on it to improve the income of the government thus benefitting the entire population. This is the same type of plundering they did under Rajapakshas to Daya Gamage’s Sugar business. WR or Marapona have done anything wrong. They expressed their point of view based on the facts available to them. If someone wants to challenge that then it must be scientifically, factually and logically argued and proved according to provisions of law.

          Look buddy,

          Nature has programmed us to perform this pleasurable thang for the propagation of the species. So I’d rather be doing it than just frustratingly throwing it around in mere words like you.

          In a free world, you are entitled to your opinion and I am to mine. Let us rejoice, at least now, you and I both have the freedom to express it in unblocked Colombo Telegraph.

          What kind of background does this idiot Silva come from?, If he cannot express himself in grammatical English instead of filth, He must be suffering from a yako type inferiority complex,If you are a Wijedasa Senadhipathy sucker, who a majority of right thinking people are disgusted by their deeds, take a good look at yourself ? Are you also on the take of Avant Garde and its filthy lucre. WE wonder why this man is so upset by these revelations.Daily Telegraph please don’t publish posts by idiots who don’t know good manners that are an integral part of civilized

          regardless of the social status , who ever associated with this high profile crook Senadipathi geezer , must face the music . we don’t give monkeys about whether he or she is a close associate of Ranil , get it in to your silly arrogant head , mate !

You buffalo ate sand and mud rolling on land blaring that it is Chandrika who can defeat MR. You abhorred RW. In fact you are allergic to RW. But get this to your barren brain: had it not for RW you are dead meat, the whole country would have been. No use talking to a born idiot like because I remember your past track record of rubbish.

                NV,

                “What is your problem?”

                No problem! But I wonder what is the logic behind this attack on NS. Do you find any? Please enlighten me.

                First of all can you tell me on what legal provision, law or power did My3 dissolved Avent Guarde?

                If My3 can, on the insistence of some crooks, confiscate a legally established and running business, what guarantee can you give us that the SL Army or some bunch of criminals in collusion with the powers that be would not encroach on your private those kade and loot your business?

                If AG operations was really illegal or wrongs committed there then what is the modus operandi our law is supposed to proceed with such issues? By loosing the jobs of 6000 odd people and their families?

                If it was illegal what are the legal actions taken so far, who has been arrested, what artifacts/weapons taken into the custody of the police, B report produced to courts?

                Why the hell my3 signed an agreement with such an illegal business on behalf of the GOSL?

                Why did SL Navy seized illegal weapons, as they say, and started doing the same business using those very same illegal weapons?

                Were all those billionaire marine operators such dickheads as not to know the risk and illegality of obtaining the security service of a “pirate Senadipathy” against “pirate Somolians”?

                Those are some of the silly questions that come to my silly mind and could some expert, who are abundant here, drive home the fucking screw on my head?

              Mr Silva,

              On current form you are eminently well qualified to enter parliament.

              I think it is our responsibility to maintain basic decorum of address, and in written submissions. If we get down to the use of baser language and that of the gutter, we would be no different to those who represent the lowest strata in society.

              Besides it also shows a serious shortfall in one’s vocabulary. I am sure you can do better than this.

              You may insult me in turn but I want you to know that you offend me with your language. Please cooperate to hoist the standards.

                Justice & Fairplay,

                No problem with you buddy. If at all, it is the content delivered that I get entangled with. And do not give so much importance to language but to the meaning behind the words. But the asshole living downstairs is like a culvert with an implanted mouth! For every coconut husk that get drifted down the culvert the silly fucker emits CIBIK CIBIK CIBIK! What is this madness over CBK? If she was so instrumental in forming the government why does she spend most of her time abroad? By the way I now have a certain amount of respect for her because she made some effort to rectify the mistakes she did by helping to get rid of MR’s familial rule. It is this srilal asshole who is still in love with the old lady and he jealously safeguards his mental image of her. Poor vassal! On the contrary, look at RW! He is kicking and alive, manages affairs of the government, plans, legislate, negotiates, heads the government, prepares budgets, faces and answers trade union problems, solves problems, devices new concepts and ways of good governance……. you name it and he does it! So in effect, if there is a single person for whom these two elections have signified true victory, created history making opportunity it is RW and none other. When this srilal asshole sees that he cannot tolerate it. I know this man very well from his past application and he never changes. This is the style he used to write and he has never changed. He cannot breath without admiring CBK. As sure as the sun rise, the fucker would hit me by his very next nefarious comment writing some bullshit like “you are licking RW’s balls, you have not faced my challenge, you are still to answer my (moda choon) question … bla bla bla!!!!!

                I too would like to engage in some constructive and decent debate in these forums but when I read most of these comments devoid of any substance but muck I can’t help but hit their Micky Mice out of the park! That is just what they deserve and I can’t help but deliver it. Yet there are an infinitesimal few whose views I read with respect without whose inputs CT will be a barren land of impotent eunuchs.

              Ranil’s blue eyed boy Thilak Marapane was compelled to resign as he had no any other choice , yet you found some hilarious arguments to safe guard that arrogant scum , what happened in the end ? mark my word , Dealdasa will have to go sooner or later , it’s a matter of time .

The historic gesture in decades of Sri Lankan politics indicative of good governance you buffalo interpret as defeat and culpability! This statement alone is enough testimonial to your low IQ. The other fuckingly hilarious nonsense you vomit is that My3 did not abuse his power! Then how the hell did he confiscate Avent Garde business? Even the autocratic MR did not commit such a thunderous blunder! And you fool come and clap to that gon-type blunder by hitting your arse on the barrel face!

          Mr Silva,

          ” I feel sorry for your small brain!”

          Thank you most kindly.

          The difference between you and me is, at least I’ve got a brain; even a small one. :) Shhhh…. cut down on the inarticulate verbosity; the whole forum might find out.

          So now, poor Mr Senadipathy is left to scrape the bottom of the barrel to find defenders eh? Mr Silva, don’t you think his money could have done a better job?

          I feel your pain brother. Have a long cool glass of water and go to sleep. You’ll feel better in the morning. :))

            So typical of how a 3rd world, parippu and rice ration depended and bred, conditioned under an upbringing of “hate the wealthy” culture person thinks, speaks and interprets the world.

            “inarticulate verbosity” apart just tell me what provision of law has NS violated in doing AG business, what law have NS and Wijedasa broken in touring that far away fxxkig land with their families?

            You say NS gave money to a, b, and c. Fine, what is wrong in that? A beggar draws near you and telescopes his begger hands at you and you give him a rupee. According to your fucked up theory I say you must be arrested, fired from your job or your business confiscated, left to “scrape the bottom of the barrel” and you be put in jail! This is the logic I get from your argument.

              Me Silva,

              How are you feeling this morning? All hale and hearty?

              Mr Silva, I hope you dont mind if I ask you a very personal question, why are you unable to control your anger? Do you have haemorrhoids? Ask Mr Senadipathy to buy you a donut cushion to sit on. It’ll lessen your pain. That’s the best use for his money!

              ” 3rd world, parippu and rice “

              Mr Silva, how dare you feast on 1st world haute cuisine, put on airs, and look down on our favourite food? When I think of Parippu, Pol Sambal I feel like catching the next flight home!

              “hate the wealthy” Are you kidding? No, Mr Silva, I don’t hate myself. In fact I just love myself!

              ” just tell me what provision of law has NS violated in doing AG business, what law have NS and Wijedasa broken in touring that far away fxxkig land with their families? “

              Now, now Mr Silva, who said any of the above? Don’t you think you are just imagining things? Hallucinating? When did you last see your psychiatrist? Don’t you think it’s time for you to pay him another visit?

              See ya later, buddy. Remember the donut cushion. Hope to see you all smiles and happy the next time.

                Look buddy, you better see the psychiatrist at the earliest and not me. This is why I mentioned that 3rd world story. Again you relapse to 1st world and haute cuisine which exactly is the symptom, if you don’t my mentioning it!

                Frankly what is your problem when Senadipathy and WR consume haute cuisine, put on airs and “look down on polsambol” in your interpolated version? Don’t you feel you have encroached and invaded their private life? Can’t they spend the money they earn in whatever they want? Why do you try to impose your culture on them? You are perfectly at freedom to love your local food and fly home and no one bothers and questions you about that. But when they put on airs…. how does it become your problem? You seem to suggest NS has earned colossal amounts of money doing an illegal business violating all laws of land and sea and that WR has colluded with him and tried to protect him speaking in parliament on behalf of him and so did Marapona. I say you are completely wrong for the reasons I have written in several of my comments under this post. You are all riding a hype created by the most corrupt media boutique Sirasa Pacha Media Network. They are using you all as guinea pigs.

                Just think of this scenario: We all witness how Sirasa behaved in the past doing the bidding of Rajapakshas and waging a propaganda war against UNP and RW. Not a single day passed when they did not attack RW. I think even the Government media did not drop to such lows. They completely broke the UNP base vote into pieces and disappointment by disseminating utter falsehoods about RW. They created and promoted various dissidents within the party. And all these were the plans of MR committed by Kili sucker. And then look at the numerous nonsense they do all over the country from Wesak, Poson to new year, from tooth relic to Dansala, from party politics to active politics. Don’t you get what they are aiming at? When they set their hands at lucrative maritime business, when millions combine with billions, and when those billions combine with partisan, favoritism, bias, media, type, myth, half=truths and ultimately political power where would they lead this country? You may think you could brush this question aside but you can’t. There are thousands of serious mothers, daughters, sons and fathers who have been driven mad by the media nonsense of Sirasa. Maharaja has invaded the brain, mind, sub-consciousness, religion, culture and politics of the masses in this country. During election times they portrayed Port City as a devil, the next week after the Chinese pumped millions into Kallathoniya’s account they ran around the whole country carrying a fuckingly despicable piece of brick creating a media hype and enticing the stupid buffalos in the country ultimately ending up with the dimwit My3 putting the final brick on top of the fucking pile of nonsensical pricks. This is mind fucking at its best on a supremely gullible nation. And such a media wolf has made an application with MOD to enter the business done by Avent Garde! When NS did that business no one in the country knew, affected or bothered about it. That he gave money to so and so is not a problem because everyone of this country is used to give something to someone: during wesak they give dansal, foods, when someone dies you give alms to monks (we will have to prohibit that practice too if we are to comply with some commentators here!), during new year season you give compliments, gifts, colanders and diaries! So Senadipathy’s giving money to certain people is no different! Same thing, conceptually and practically! But when we awaken and blow life to a juggernaut of corrupt nature, track record and behavior we are doomed.

        Mr Nimal Fernando,

        I do not wish to get involved in a foul mouthed barrage like someone else here, so please let me just say that giving money to politicians during election campaigns is a practice adopted by MOST business houses in Sri Lanka, and therefore to single out one for the excessively largeness of the sum involved in, I think, being partisan. If you take a close look and have the means to investigate, all or most of these highly respectable people in business are all up to the same third rate practice.

        That is what is so bad about it all. Our private sector does not have the Hayleys Jayasundara types anymore….

          Thank you for your valuable input, and I get what you are saying. One has to read my initial post within the context it’s written. It’s a comment specific to another post; it cannot be interpolated into other assumptions.

        Yu Hoo Mr Silva, where are you hiding?

        Come on out, come on out … I was only kidding ….. no one’s coming to take you to the funny farm.

        Fun aside, Mr Silva, look how I toyed with you and deflected your vulgar verbal assault without ever using a single bad word or even insulting you! That’s upbringing and class, Mr Silva – even if I have to say so, myself! :) There were many here, despite all the provocation from you, who didn’t reply you in kind; that’s class, Mr Silva. Even with your mastery of English words (which many Lankans mistake for class) – without the mastery of the articulate use of them :) – you won’t know decency even if it falls on your head.

        Sometimes, we all, in our own way, are called upon to do our patriotic duty for the motherland …… to tame people and impart some decency. I just did mine with you. Some people have to do the dirty work, Mr Silva. :)

        If you are smart, you’ll watch and learn; If you are not, you’ll go into another one of your @#!%##@!! :)))

        Whenever I run into Sri Lankans like you, it’s my very own personal descend in to Heart of Darkness! The horror, the horror ….

    “Law and Order Minister Tilak Marapana in last November resigned from his ministerial portfolio amidst calls to step down over the controversy surrounding the Avant Garde issue”.

    Has it ever occurred to anyone that Tilak Marapone might have resigned out of disgust? Disgust at a country which refused to appreciate the sacrifices he made as a highly successful lawyer giving it all up, in order to serve the call of his country and its brave new government.

    IN resigning, he did what any decent, respectable and sensible man would do; given the circumstances. He displayed good team instincts in not bringing his government into any further disrepute. He went. He would have been saddened however to note that we are now a country and a people, who cannot understand the Law and who don’t care to learn it either, as long as we bay for someone’s blood, rightly or wrongly, and somehow get it!

    It was unfortunate that the ‘Jury’ included some members of the current cabinet as well. Marapone went, in the name of decency. He did not overstay his welcome. It was a great precedent and he will be respected; at least by the more intelligent segments of our society.

    In a democracy one is NEVER guilty until one is proven so. This country will need to learn this important facet of the Law as it struggles to resurface as a country where Kangaroo courts are a thing of the past, and whims and fancies of Presidents and Prime Ministers cannot be rammed down everyone’s throats. Respect of these two concepts are what makes the current President and the Prime Minister stand out among the rabble we have had in those positions in the past. Long may they continue in similar vein, despite the hollering of the rabble rousers.

    “Field Marshall Sarath Fonseka today released twenty seven photos which shows the families of Wijeyadasa Rajapakshe and the Avanted Garde family in holidaying mood together in Disney Land dating back to January 2006. Field Marshal Sarath Fonseka challenged Minister Rajapakshe to explain the truth regarding his personal relationship between himself and Nissanka Senadhipathi”.

    The above quote means nothing. It only shows the bareness of the argument; the ridiculous nature of the accusation, be it from Field Marshall Fonseka or CT itself.

    Wijedasa Rajapakshe it seems knew Senadhipathi from a long time ago, and revealing innocent photographs where the two of them and their families were together, while insinuating that Rajapakshe is now subverting justice is mischievous, it is machiavellian and shows the bareness of the accusation.

    As a website which has potential, I would suggest CT works more strongly to create opinion that counts. Resorting to sensationalism may earn popularity in the short term among the impressionable, but not respect of the intelligent.

    The Field Marshall can look after himself.

      Extremely well said..the best part being the most simple…that we need to appreciate that one is innocent till proven guilty beyond reasonable doubt.

      This government has been built on a pack of lies, half truths and fantasies. It’s a matter of time before it starts crumbling if it does not get its act together .. the economy is spiralling down wards, colombo is becoming a congested and dirty city once more.. and these morons are more interested in putting away the threat they see in Gota ??? !!!

      And Fonseka.. well..true to his egoistic self he keeps propelling himself to the limelight even though the public granted him a thundering blow at the last election!

        FM SF is absolutely right; he is a straight talker, and deals with issues and nips them in the bud. That is how he dealt with the terrorists. If it was not his leadership and strategy in leading the defence forces in land war, you would not have this freedom to make such comments. Like everyone else South of Vavuniya you would be trembling in fear at the threat of VP’s bombs. Well done SF, you go ahead and say what is right and say it straight.

      A clean rout, it is!!

      To me sadly, this is an indication of the absolute ‘shoot from the hip’ tendency of our society with or without without rhyme , reason or evidence.

      To explain further to an insensitive audience would be a waste of my time. However it does concern me that we may have a society that is unfit for democratic practice yet, because democratic thinking is absent. That is the work of the Rajapakses and some others before them, which have deeply scarred the thinking patterns of society.

        Dear Gamini,

        Living up to my pen name is exactly why, I refuse to be taken in by the headline which says “Justice Minister Wijeyadasa Corrupt Since Time Of COPE Chairmanship: Photos Reveal”

        This headline doesn’t suggest. Instead it clearly pronounces that Minister Wijedasa is corrupt. It has convicted the man even before he is tried. It is more than being suggestive. Do you get me?

        The photos were circa 2006. This matter is raised some 9 years later. Are we to believe that Mr Wijedasa as Justice Minister, would subvert the judicial procedure now, because Senadhipathi was a long time friend? If so, arent you presuming rather a lot, and arent you judging someone else with your own yardstick of meaurement?

        Those photos mean nothing to me, as they do not imply anything to justify the headline of this article which is pretty damning.

        I don’t think a democratic country with an independent judiciary works on the basis that friends shall be safe, and only enemies are sentenced. Therefore your enquiry whether Senadhipathi and Wijedasa are friends of mine for me to support them is treated with the derision it deserves.

        Standing up for the underdog – especially when one smells something unfair is being said or done – is what Justice & Fairplay is all about. Smacking o pummeling the underdog is the work of bullies.

        Just to make things very clear, I am NOT standing up for Mr Senadhipathi here. I am only stating that the implied content is unfair by Mr Rajapakse. For your information I neither know Senadhipathi nor Rajapakse, and have no intention to get to know them either!!

        Nice day, Gamini (:-))

    In most democracies there are three branches of government that function independent of other. There is the Executive (presidency), the Legislature (parliament) and the Judiciary (the courts and the department of the Attorney General). In SL – for reasons only known to the politicos – the Department of the AG is under a Cabinet Minister who for all purposes appears to be the “Judge” who decides which cases merit presentation to the courts and which get dismissed! The incumbent Minister of Justice was President of the BASL and relinquished his term of office midway of that Association for reasons which merit no repetition here during the term of the previous regime.

    It is rather shameful that such characters are chosen as members of Cabinet with due process. In the USA cabinet positions are NOT appointed villy nilly or at the whim and fancy of the President. Such presidential appoints go before relevant committees of the Senate for wetting and the entire Senate then votes prior to such an appointment!!!

    With such questionable references and credential, it is honorable for the Justice Minister to quit like how he did quit the presidency of the BASL then perhaps for fear of life, but now for the sake of good governance which is fast loosing its meaning in the MS-RW coalition!!!

    All the Pakshes and the name sakes were and still suckers, no qualms about it.
    The big question is why and how all these crooks and parasites got back into the government we elected???
    Ask the man with no mouth or no decency who employed these suckers .

    In a law abiding land these people would have been shown the BACK DOOR BUT ,BUT IN SL BANANA REPUBLIC THESE ARE NORMS.
    The president to suck up to crooks and murderers the PM to suck up to similar ways.
    How a nation can prosper when crooks are given high posts???

    We will see the return of all the crooks ruling the Banana republic one day and be the Pariah state forever.
    The other good for nothing namesakes are still shouting through the back door drumming up the war drums round 5.
    The Yahapalanayas will only have to open the flood gates as the stooges are planted in power by
    the Yahapalanaya plotters with no consideration of the future of the nation.

    The mysterious disappearance of the body parts of the sensitive case of the year Thajudeen’s has been thrown away under the pretext of the Freezer breakdown.. What ??? Cock and bull story.????

    Corruption is not acceptable. However stopping it overnight, I don’t know if it is practicable. Even Lee kwan you when his brother got involved in some bribery/corruption issue said he will give him some money to fight the case in the courts but refused to interfere in the process. I think one has to be tactful. One should not bite the nipples of women one gets to play with till blood comes.

    I thought Wijedasa Rajapakse was one of the cleanest politicians we had. He is tainted as all others and no different. There is absolutely nothing wrong in him having a friendship with Senapdhipathy but he should have stated so and not got involved in this case. With this kind of evidence he is beyond redemption as he has been sly. Very sly.

    I am amazed at the dirt that is being dished out. We thought that Mahintha and his cronies were Crooks and corrupt to the Core but we are now being treated to a spectre of new Sri Lankan order.

    BRIBE BRIBE and more BRIBE. It is BRIBES Galore.

    But from a Tamil perspective these are the people who GOSL portrayed as capable on inquiring into their own Guilt. Just look at the array of Crooks.

    RW Nations elected PM who is more interested in having secret meetings with Criminals.
    Justice minister who is spends most of his working hours trying to defend himself.
    Attorney General sits on the bench trying to cover Colleague no doubt for a fee.

For the Patriots Fonseka is traitor That is after the war of wiping out Mullivaikkal Tamils, he accepted Sampanthar’s support to win presidential election.) If this man is releasing photo against Old Prince’s AG company’s secret governance techniques, The so called Sinhala Intellectuals resent again. Sinhala mass will not believe even if the AG takes them too to the trips with Wijeyadasa. May be seeing this majestic Photos those Modayas(or the so called Sinhala intellectuals) may make Wijeyadasa the next president and Nissanka as the Prime Minister. So, “Welcome the Future Royalty of the Sinhala Intellectual.” The charming, graceful portraits of the royalty filling the heart with warmth and compassion.

    Mahinda Rajapaksha is corrupt. Namal Rajapaksha is corrupt. Basil Rajapaksha is corrupt. Gotabhaya Rajapaksha is corrupt. Shiranthi, yoshitha and Rohitha Rajapaksha also corrupt. Finally it reveals Wijayadasa Rajapaksha is corrupt. Now we have to assume all Rajapaksha’s are corrupt.

      Sapumal – may be it has lot to do with the name RAJAPAKSHE.

      See, they are even clever to ask minor workers in pathology to work on stealing the bones of murdered persons… this reveal everything about those Madamulana Rajapakshes.

      Wait and see, how the murder case would reveal the bits related to Rajapakshes REAL murderous tactics. Then the day reaches that majority will finally be fed up of them. Until then even 50% of vote eligibles would no oppose Rajapakshe to even rape them… that is the mentality of them. I am ashamed to see this that our people are this much stupidos.

    Most of the photos in broad daylight but time between 2-4 a.m. How can we rely on such photos? Doesn’t CT check these things before publishing?
    I am not a fan of WR, but this is sloppy.

    Wijedasa Rajapakse defending Avant Garde in Parliament said that he had no personal connection with this company. However he now says that he and his family visited USA with Chairman of this company and his family in 2006.

    It is now clear why he was so keen to protect this company and the former Defense Secretary who gave permission to form this company.

    Everybody has the right to select the friends. But in this case it is clear that WIjedasa had super luxury holiday with Senadhipathi at somebody’s cost. The dirty linen is now being washed in the public. Wijedasa, if wanted Yahapalanaya, should have stated the conflict of interest and stayed out of this Avant Guard case leaving the impartial justice to take place. His interference is totally unacceptable! Yes, he needs to resign!

    Dr.RN has to put his two cents worth in every article that appears in CT. Here he signs below with his full name – Dr. Rajasingham Narendran. Isn’t this cheap popularity.

    Hope Minister Rajapakse can uphold the sanctity of the Justice Ministry by taking a cue from the morally straightforward Ex – Minister Thilak Marapone by resigning.

    I have seen most of these comments. I want all of you to know that in the USA renting is Limos is not an unusual thing. Anybody can rent them if you have a valid drivers license. Also I don’t know what is the big deal if two families going to Dinsneyland. Almost 50,000 visitors go to Disneyland every day.

      Waruna,

      You are absolutely right. Are Limos rented only on a valid driving license? No payment at all? 50,000 visitors go to Disneyland everyday. Is that also free?
