JVP Absconds CC And High Posts Committee Meets: Allows Gota’s Appointment Of Corrupt Judge, May Allow Chandraprema As Geneva Envoy

The JVP is absconding from its responsibility to remain watchdogs against corruption and abuse of power by standing up to the executive in Parliament, allowing a corrupt judge and even a major human rights violator to sail through committees tasked with scrutinising these appointments, Colombo Telegraph can reveal.

Nearly three months since the election the JVP remains as inactive as ever, and political analysts are concerned about whether the party has been threatened into silence.

As recently reported in the Colombo Telegraph, Gotabaya Rajapaksa’s first major judicial nomination was Court of Appeal Judge Abdul Hameed Dileep Nawaz. The new President nominated Nawaz as President of the Court of Appeal. Nawaz is the first sitting justice to have been charge sheeted by the Bribery Commission for corruption during his time at the Attorney General’s Department. Mohan Pieris who usurped the Chief Justice chair after the illegal impeachment of Shirani Bandarayake has also been named in the charge sheet under case number 87741/01/18 at the Colombo Chief Magistrate’s Court. The case is currently before the Supreme Court. It will come up again in the Colombo Chief Magistrate’s Court by May 2020.

Justice Nawaz has been charged with offences which fall under Section 70 of the Bribery Act.

Since he was charged, every President of the Court of Appeal has prevented Justice Nawaz from hearing cases at the Court of Appeal. However, Gotabaya Rajapaksa’s first major judicial decision involved bringing Nawaz out of cold storage. Both Nawaz and former AG Mohan Pieris are close associates and confidants of the new President.

When the nomination came up before the Constitutional Council, which had been briefed on the facts of the case against Nawaz, neither Opposition Leader Sajith Premadasa, UNP nominee and former Justice Minister Thalatha Atukorale had raised objections to Nawaz’s appointment as head of the Court of Appeal.

Bimal Ratnayake, who is the JVP representative on the Council, declined to even show up at the crucial CC meeting, Colombo Telegraph learns even though the JVP was also aware of the problematic nature of the attempted appointment. As a result, Nawaz’s nomination was approved by the CC and he has since been sworn in as President of the Court of Appeal.

The JVP is also refusing to engage in its watchdog role at the Parliamentary High Posts Committee which is tasked with vetting all nominees to high government positions, including ambassadors to Sri Lanka’s missions abroad. The recent controversial appointment of Journalist C.A. Chandraprema as Sri Lanka’s Permanent Representative to the UN in Geneva, where the Human Rights Council will take up Sri Lanka’s human rights record in March, has alarmed rights activists. Chandraprema, a former loyalist of the UNP and Ranil Wickremesinghe, was once known as “Thadi Priyantha” a key member of the the People’s Revolutionary Red Army or PRRA, one of many shadowy armed groups working with the military to target suspects during the JVP youth uprising that saw 40,000 killed. PRRA routinely issued death threats to journalists and human rights activists, including staff from Amnesty International, whose reports at the time accused PRRA of being involved in executions and enforced disappearances.

Chandraprema was arrested in Sri Lanka in 2000 in connection with the 1989 assassinations of two human rights lawyers – Charita Lankapura and Kanchana Abhayapala. A senior ex policeman in custody had named Chandraprema as the alleged assassin in an affidavit which is publicly available online. However Chandraprema was released after the Attorney General decided there was no legal grounds to proceed. Since then he has been protected by his links to all the major political parties in Sri Lanka.

Despite the proposed envoy being directly implicated in a brutal crackdown on its own cadres in the past, the JVP decided to be a no-show on the High posts committee meeting to approve the envoy’s nomination last week Colombo Telegraph learns. Both JVP members on the High Post Committee set to vet Chandraprema’s appointment, Bimal Ratnayake and Vijitha Herath did not attend the meeting. It is unclear why the JVP is actively choosing to disregard its role as a watchdog in Parliament against excesses by a ruling Government.

However it is also learnt that Chandraprema did not attend the High Post Committee interview last Thursday, February 6, 2020. His interview has been rescheduled for a later meeting. It remains unclear whether the controversial nominee will be able to take up office as Permanent Representative to the UN before the Human Rights Council sessions in March. (By Chinthika De Silva)

    How can the 3% Party influence the CC or the High Posts Committee , when they are desperately trying to save their asses at he next round, just to keep drawing those perks in Kotte..

    And it ain’t going to be any easier this time ,with the real JVP Party leader’s son who has come out of Age declaring that he is ready to help the Prez and lift up the Nation.

    Inhabitants who nourished the old JVP now know how the current Team betrayed them and their children to the UNP ‘s Dr Ranil and his crooked Cabinet.

    The same inhabitants also know well what the new Opp Leader of the UNP Keselwatta Kid’s dad did to the real leader and 40,000 of his followers .

    Although the new Wijeweera was a baby then, I am sure he is aware what was done to his Dad and his followers.

    And he is also well aware of Dr Rani’s active participation in the demolition of those thousands of lives in torture chambers in Balangoda.

    I am surprised to see this article when even KeselWatta Kid, the new Half UNP leader who also call himself the Opposition Leader, did not oppose Nawaz at the CC.

    Thalatha being Dr Rani’s Justice Minister in charge of the Police when r Mr Rauf Hakeem gave it away after Easter, should know how legit those claims are..

      “Since he was charged, every President of the Court of Appeal has prevented Justice Nawaz from hearing cases at the Court of Appeal. However, Gotabaya Rajapaksa’s first major judicial decision involved bringing Nawaz out of cold storage. Both Nawaz and former AG Mohan Pieris are close associates and confidants of the new President.“

      A new tribe is in charge now, and the tribal rules are above the constitution and other rules established earlier. Based on those rules, to be qualified, the primary qualification is to be a member of the tribe or a loyal supporter of the tribe.

      Based on the above two rules, the appointment is “Proper”.

      The monks are happy because the Para-imbeciles, mean IQ 79, continue to prostrate to saffron clad monks, who hijacked Buddhism for hegemony, calling and appointing themselves the 3rd Gem of the Triple Gem, and asking the Para-imbeciles to seek refuge in the monks. Suckers!

          Eagle Confused Eye, Eagle Amana Eye,

          All the monks in the Land of Native Veddah Aethho are Para, and Para-Monks. They preach Buddha-Agama, Buddha’s Religion, that is a distortion of Buddhism and is an Insult to the Buddha and his Dhamma, , teachings and Philosophy.

          The Para-monks, want the imbeciles, mean IQ 79, to prostrate to them, a tradition and monk rules established by them, to maintain their hegemony.

          The first 6 Para-kings and the subjects escaped his hegemony.

          Despite 2,300 years preaching and prostrations to the Para-monks, has any Para reached or attained Nibanna, or Extinction? No. Not yet. Per Mahawansa need to wait another 5,000 years? Caveat Emptor, buyer beware! Suckers beware!

        PRESS STATEMENT

        MICHAEL R. POMPEO, SECRETARY OF STATE

        The Department of State has designated Lieutenant General Shavendra Silva, current Commander of the Sri Lanka Army and Acting Chief of Defense Staff, as required under Section 7031(c) of the Department of State, Foreign Operations, and Related Programs Appropriations Act, due to credible information of his involvement, through command responsibility, in gross violations of human rights, namely extrajudicial killings, by the 58th Division of the Sri Lanka Army during the final phase of Sri Lanka’s Civil War in 2009.

          Continued

          The allegations of gross human rights violations against Shavendra Silva, documented by the United Nations and other organizations, are serious and credible. His designation underscores the importance we place on human rights in Sri Lanka and globally, our concern over impunity for human rights violations and abuses, as well as our support for promoting accountability for those who engage in such acts. We urge the Sri Lankan government to promote human rights, hold accountable individuals responsible for war crimes and human rights violations, advance security sector reform, and uphold its other commitments to pursue justice and reconciliation.

          We deeply value our partnership with the Sri Lankan government and the long-standing democratic tradition we share with the Sri Lankan people. The United States remains committed to strengthening the bilateral relationship with Sri Lanka and helping reshape its security forces to tackle current and emerging threats. Security cooperation will continue to emphasize respect for human rights as a fundamental component of our training, assistance, and engagements.

          The United States will continue to use all available tools and authorities, as appropriate, to address human rights violations and abuses around the world no matter when they occurred or who perpetrated them. Today’s actions underscore our commitment to support human rights, promote accountability for perpetrators, and encourage reconciliation in support of a peaceful, stable, and prosperous Sri Lanka.

              Dear Native,

              TNA Deputy Abraham and the Boss Samapathar put the Final Nail on the Coffin of the Lt General yesterday.-

              Abraham was highly appreciative of this decision of the US State Government, which apparently is the result of joint efforts by the ex Prez Chandrika , ex FM Mangala . Ms Nimalka , and the NGOs who worked tirelessly with them to present this latest folio of evidence to the US State Department.

              After thanking the US Government for making this wake up call after 10 years of Rajapakasa rule since Mr Pirahaparan left , Mr Abraham and Mr Sampathar now want immediate action from Prez Nandasean Government .

              Mr Abraham and Mr Sampathar want the new Prez Nandasena Govt to prosecute all War Heroes as per the Demands of the UN Resolution.

              Which was co -sponsored by Dr Rani’s UNP Govt and the US Government under the auspices of the Yahapalana Foreign Minister Mr Mangala Samarawera.

              Now the major issue for our 7 Million inhabitants is, can Prez Nandasena and their new Army Commander be saved from the UN & Ms Sooka even if they give 2/3rd Majority to Pohottuwa?.-

              My humble opinion is it all depends on the Political Strategy of the UNP Dalit Faction lead by Keselwatta Kid, the new UNP Opposition Leader.

              Will Keselwatta Kid denounce the US and TNA Demands in Public, at the UNP Election Rallies?.

              Will the real Leader of the UNP Dr Ranil do a deal with his Mango Buddies the Vellala Faction leaders Abraham and Sampathar and castrate the Opposition Leader Keslwatta Kid, and force the Kid to withdraw his recent statement denouncing the US Sanctions on the Army Commander?..

              It is going to be an exciting Election for sure, even if it is held before the first anniversary Mass to remember the 800 Victims of the Easter Disaster..

            Native Vedda ,

            Thanks for the wake up call. Found out about the, censure of the alleged war criminal by the US, a travel restriction for him and the immediate family.

            Given below is Amarasiri’s post.

            Author Colombo Telegraph,
            The new Para-Tribe follows tribal rules and “ethics”. Per those tribal rules and “ethics”, crimes, war crimes and corruption carried out by loyal tribal members, are not criminal acts, even though they are criminal acts per the country’s constitution and international humanitarian laws.

            The Nazis followed a similar line of reasoning regarding the crimes committed by them, during WW2, the second Great Colonial War.

      K A \sumanasekara ,

      A few years back I read a science article that said , in the US , only 1 % of
      heart attack patients die at admission annually . In numeric calculation
      1 is just the beginning after zero and when it turns to percentage it grows
      bigger and bigger ! In the case of US heart attack fatality as of 2004 report ,
      it was 500,000 out of 1.5 million admissions annually ! You can easily
      trivialise the amount by percentage ! J V P has about 500,000 backers , this
      is that 3% . True , it is low but Monks in the last general election got only
      about 20,000 ! 25 times bigger than the 2500 year old pride ! People trust
      J V P more than Buddhism , ever did this maths ?

    JVP is a joke. I can not believe how fast they have changed ideology for their benefit. I do not think JVP will amount to anything. AKD’s JANA BALAWEGAYA says a lot about his future. I think AKD also lived for years with no money. Now, he act least look for his own salvation. NOT only JVP, every socialist party with just one parliament member, that is also a national list post or probably UPFA and UNF do not contest allowing them to win. JVP is no different from UPFA or UNF or SLFP OR UNP . I know even TROTSKYs with TRIBAL OR PROTESTANT SOCIALISM have a different instinct which is very capitalist.
    The problem sri lankan parliament is providing employment with very lucrative revenues and lot of freebies to 225 people. So, why do they leave. If their children can not overseas for employment, parliament is the best place to be employed. Then comes all the ministry Secretary, and SOE positions.
    I heard, Maithripala Sirisena’s brother was accused for getting Rs 9 million as his yearly remuneration and he was asking is it in Sri Lankan money and do we have that much ?

    I have the feeling that JVP would take another decades to see it right. They are always right theoretically and their hearted efforts against exposure of huge corruption. But in the same time, in the bond scam scenario, they were not honest enough. Yet today, they dont consider the size of the losses occured during the so called highly abusive regime of the MR from 2005 to 2015.
    Their treatment and behaviours are almost like LANKEN crime investigations on that Rugby player’s highly misterious MURDER, which we now see as beyond the misterious murder of Jamal Khashogii – Saudi journalist got murdered in the Saudi Embassy in Turkey (October 2018).
    Just because Mahinda Rajakashe family is directly involved in that WASIM Thadjudeen murder – with all the revealations by GOOD GOVERANNCE govt. … for some reasons Mahinda the mass murderers wife was never interogated why ?
    One law is to the general public and one another law to BP Rajaapkshe why ?

    Ranil ha listened torturing of Kids in Batalanda and he did not stop. Raajitha and his paramilitary is another who supported to get rid JVP kids. I heard he involved some civilian, at least one girl, killing. Ranil was giving leads to get rid of LRRT people in Colombo. Sri Lanka went through a very disgusting and unfortunate period. Le us change the country so that people wan’t be affected again. Let us stop divisive politics, Identity politics and corrupt parliament. Most of the 225 have baggage,
    It is unfair to expect so much straight forwardness right away from officials right away. Everything happened for some reason. Voters do not understand the the influence of international POLITICS IN OTHER COUNTRIES. That also has to be counted when individuals are appointed. aLLEGIENCE IS VERY IMPORTANT. Just remember what happened to Maithripala sirisena by trusting officials. Officials tht he appointed ruined him. It is more than one. Probably, CBK had the same life.

    It is all part of the game. Udayanga is back !!!!!!!!!. Question how come he showed up at the right time after years of absconding ????? Now it will be a process of white wash/dry clean/rehabilitate, call what ever you like , the bottom line is legalizing the illegal acts of these corrupt men (Airlanka, Udayanga.) Poor Jaliya got caught to US authority and no such privilege for him. No wonder MR was so furious when he heard his relatives stupidity.(US laws are different from ours). People may ask why now, I say there is plenty to gain. 1) It is safer to keep the witnesses under your own observation, and not to end up like intel chief who escaped. 2) These men will be used as scapegoats (after all Lankan prisons provide VIP services) for short term, the govt will get its credit, show the public they are after them which previous Govt never bothered but after a short stay they will be out on legal loopholes, now that Loo and Odor, AG,Judiciary have been fixed. 3) This is typical SHAM process by which corruption and crimes of your own are legalized. 4)) These BS will also help in diverting and deflecting public pressure for at least time being. 5) This will also serve as a booster for the coming elections proving he indeed is a “strong/Iron man”.6)Trust me if Rajapaksa can have their own way (2/3) all these men including Duminda will be out after General elections on legal loopholes/amendments/president pardon, there is plenty. 6) This kind of SHAM procedures are much better than the usual denial/disappearance/distortion methods. JVP and RW seems to be just helping with such transition so that they can use the same in future.

    CT must be appreciated and acknowledged for highlighting all of this. How can we squeeze out a response from the JVP? Can we bombard Anura Kumar Dissanayake’s Twitter or Facebook accounts?

    The UNP’s role here is also despicable and Sajith has an agenda of his own.
    “When the nomination came up before the Constitutional Council, which had been briefed on the facts of the case against Nawaz, neither Opposition Leader Sajith Premadasa, UNP nominee and former Justice Minister Thalatha Atukorale had raised objections to Nawaz’s appointment as head of the Court of Appeal.”

    The JVP as represented by Bimal Ratnayaka and Vijitha Herath were certainly present and very vociferously negative when my appointment as Ambassador to Russia came up at the same committee. They , the TNA’s Sumanthiran and their NGO allies managed to hold up the appointment for three months, despite the fact that Moscow had sent the ‘agrement’ (approval) most expeditiously!

      Dr Jaythilaka@

      again you focus on your personal issues- to attack JVPrs right ?

      I think you are so good to be with BP Mahinda Rajaakshe but no means with any other politicians. What do you think of MR taking that Prasanna Ranaweera to india and let him hand shake with MODI ? There your blood did not even turn out to be boiled why ? You the kind of men, with bed pan style mouths pieces are really a great insult to lanken politics. Whenever the public want your voice, you stayed as if you are pennisless. What can we hope from a man of your nature for the benefit of the masses mister ?
      Please wind up and go to retirement. I dont think you may have achieved a lot after becoming srilanken Representative to Russia ?…. You and Wimal Ponnawanse should be punished with the maximum for all all the abusive nature you displayed during the last few years.

      You deserve such a treatment b’cos you are one of the remaining few hold-out that still advocate for the long-outdated Soviet made “non-aligned” movement. No wonder Russia was ready to welcome you!

      I’m not a JVP fan but, I suspect that they had a strong ideological & practical reasons to avoid the CC meeting. Perhaps they were already aware of Ranil’s deal with GoRa to go ahead with appointment. These days, with Ranil-MaRa-GoRa, what you see is not what you get!

      Thero throwing blood and flesh to hide his record of covering up Zero Casualty in 2009 May at Geneva and saving War criminal Family to help Ranil become PM and New King become President. Thero wrote in CT essays after essays in 2014 to make New King as President and Ranil as PM.

      Thero’s masters could spend as many millions as they want in Desmonds and other foreign consultants and murder as many Tamils and Media reporters they want, but preventing the truth coming out in Geneva is not stoppable.

    How do they define Wiyathmage (interllectual committee) ? or that is just like the SATAKAYA of Mahinda Balupaskshe who looted the state to no go levels and TIED the country with a debt trap.

    I thought only the most appropriate would be selected by a committee ?

    If Wiyathmaga would be the body to function under the command of G-O-T-L-E-R ? following appointments and behaviours of his rule is beyond all bearing

    If GOTLER is to be clean with new WAVE of politics, why he stayed silent at the time, BP Mahinda s delegation to india was allowed street men of PRASANNA Ranaweera. His records are public secret, may well be the attempt being made by BP Mahinda is to gain more votes in upcoming election. That will be end up being a dream for sure
    .
    2) They imprisoned Ranajan Ramanayaka- the voice of the INNOCIENT people in this country, but Nimal lanza is still roaming in the city… WHAT GOES through the idiotic head of President if he respect WIYATHMAGA … or the bodies that would critiicse it well ?

    3) Some family memebers became the directors of the current rule, G-O-T-L-E-R stays as if his hands are tied behind why ? He should first teach his ABUSIVE brother… sending him home forever, Bp Mahinda should be jailed for all the high crimes he deliberately perpetrated, then the people would kneel down before GOTLER. I could also think a twice.

    Sam, Prasanna Ranaweera, our great Miriskudu expert, met Modi and Rahul, accompanying MR. He proudly uploaded pictures in his FB profile stating “I had the opportunity to meet the grandson of Gandhi ?????? ,father of the nation.

        Lanka@ only method they are made to use it ” Rajapakshe gesticulations”. They dont need to have langaugage skills but to learn to please the back sides of Rajakshes.
        :
        Mahinda Polburuwa should make it very clear to the nation, as to why an iliterate of Prasana Ranaweera to do in a foreign delegation. That bugger is no good even to appoint as the asscleaner of anyone. Anyway, this typical to M-A-H-I-N-D-A Jarapakshe politics.
        To my surprise, his brother G-O-T-L-E-R is silent about the WASTAGEs fo this nature.

      Chiv,
      I have relatives in Kelaniya. This man Prasanna is coming froma background (no people would respect them in that area).- the manner bugger behaved himself throwing Miriskudu to 79 year old Speaker explains everything about the man’s charactor. But BP Rajakashe thought to add him to lanken delegation to india, representing us ? My gosh, where are we the srilankens marching today ?
      :
      As if we have no better to bring with, if that BULATH HAPAYA- Disanayaka woudl have been part of the delegation could do something good to the nation, since he is a graduate, but Prasanna or Nimal lanza are just street men, that abused lanken politics to the core.
      These men should rather be kept in cages if we are to rebuild this nation.
      It is all that BP Rajakashe intends to defeat UNPers in next election, but to me, Rajpakshear are already defeated by the people.
      Wait and see, this time, they will surely teach them a lession.

      Kelaniya is an area where PUNNAKU eaters are the majority. That RELICS saga which came up shortly before last PE, made it very clear, people are no better to those pin gonnu in that area.
      Yet today, people stay beleiving that was DHATHU, relics that a WATER SNAKE brought to the temple. Those who have been reciting SADHU SAHDU would never believe the other way around.
      As then Kovur predicted this people would never change their nature in terms of believing myths.
      True buddhist teachings are aside, but what they practise in this country – BUDDHA- AGAMA- which consists of more of Jathaka Stories as is the case the hidhus would believe anything that would come on their way. Today we ve been in 21st century to behave as if we are centuries ago, is a joke actually.
      But skinn heads in saffron robes mislead this nation to all levels as nothing could help anyone further.
      I think lanken society would remain further as if BERE LAKE would stay stagnated.

    the ambitious JVP by contesting the last 2 elections are now a Kota uda spent force never to make a dent into the political depths of this sad sorry nation.
    =
    due to the magnanimous defeat, they had to endure and encounter at the poll of the 16th November 2019 now they are shell shocked as to how the Sinhalese mainly Buddhist masses had rejected their charismatic young leader who apparently had a great rapport with common man and woman of the said race.
    =
    now they are playing the role of a dejected rejected would-be lover by playing hard to get.
    they are only allowing the rajapuka’s and their gangs of always being criminal bandicoots to rake havoc onto the now hapless once upon a time peaceful isle which was the envy of many a nation….?
    =
    I am requesting them the vanquished JVP to join hands with the majority in the parliament and defeat the rajapuka cohorts in every vote that they unceremoniously attempt to get passed through the frustrated house of representatives.
    =
    hope that my 2 cents worth of sincere advice will make the now-defunct JVP come down a peg or two and maintain themselves once again as responsible citizens of the saddest sorriest island on this planet.?
    =
    cheers, R. J.

    Think about it, only decent, honest and upstanding leaders, will appoint decent, honest and upstanding officials, to represent the country. So we should not be surprised, that thugs, murderers, and mass murderers, have all got lucrative posts from the American President of Sri Lanka, and his crooked brother. They will all comply with orders, and are willing to say “whose Lasantha?”, when someone asks them. The Rajapaksa appointments truly reflects who they are.

    We are going to be represented by scum of the earth. Shame.

    If we respect free speech we do must respect the freedom of silence. One may say that the JVP is lambasted by the CT for not promoting its point of view. Is JVP the only political party who evaded promoting the the CT point of view? Are we to believe that the governing party had its way in the CC just because the JVP was absent from it? After all the only changes in the CC from the pre-presidential polls are the premier and the leader of the opposition. The apparent change in character of JVP is a cause for concern. Generally the character of the JVP is a strong one and does not succumb to threats. It transformed itself from a terrorist outfit to a democratic watchdog of the society. Does this silence imply that it is the beginning of getting into old habits? I HOPE NOT.

    What? These two massive embezzlers of country money of the struggling masses? What was the Kapila arrest about then? Just a ploy to convince the masses ? Guess these two have magnamiously decided to “donate” their billions to the suffering masses (though only about 10% will be coming back). Guess government is in deep schitz with MCC and Eelam project, and needs their mad oratorio skills. But be warned : This is the Trump era and standing around like a Roman senator (black) giving egocentric oratorial speeches is old-fashioned.
