JVP Asks PM Why Mahendran, Jaliya And Udayanga Not Arrested In The Same Way Madush Was Nabbed

The Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) today questioned in Parliament as to why the same Police that arrested drug kingpin Makandure Madush has failed to arrest former Central Bank Governor and bond scam suspect Arjuna Mahendran.

Mahendran

Posing a question to Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe in Parliament today, JVP Parliamentarian Nalinda Jayatissa asked as to why the Police have failed to take action against Mahendran, former Sri Lankan Ambassador to Russia Udayanga Weeratunga and former Sri Lankan Ambassador to the US Jaliya Wickramasuriya.

Responding to Jayatissa’s question, the Prime Minister said the final decision on such arrests are made by the judiciary of the countries they are in. Wickremesinghe agreed to present a report in Parliament on steps taken by the Police to arrest the three suspects.

He also added that the Dubai court would first initiate action on Madush.

Mahendran, Weeratunga and Wickremasuriya – suspects in high-profile cases – are currently hiding overseas absconding the Sri Lankan law enforcement mechanism.

Madush was arrested by the Dubai Police authorities in a joint operation carried out with the assistance of the Police Special Task Force (STF). Highly-placed Police sources said the STF sleuths who flew to Dubai prior to the arrest provided intelligence assistance to the Dubai authorities.

    Part of the illegal money made by Mahendran went to Ranil’s coffers while Udayanga and Jaliya are protected by Ranil on the personal advice (outside politics) of Rajapukses.

    Ranil eats and sleeps together with Rajapukses.

    That is why Udayanga and Jaliya are not arrested in the same way Makandure Madush was arrested.

      “JVP Asks PM Why Mahendran, Jaliya And Udayanga Not Arrested In The Same Way Madush Was Nabbed”

      These questions should be asked not by the JVP but by Mahinda Rajapakse; that’s his duty as the leader of the opposition.

      If the JVP is in power they will behave the same way ……… They are all Lankans first and the respective party affiliations are secondary. All Lankans behave the same.

      After all Weerawansa was a great stalwart of the JVP once upon a time ……….. enough said

        Hope JVP keep up the good work! JVP should also question the massive military budget when the SL economy is crashing in line with Trumpland militarizing Sri Lanka and setting up military Bases code name ‘Logistics Hubs’ in its Cold war against China.
        Trumpland which owns and operates Bondscam Ranil and his royal mafia has issued a statement on its great relationship with Sri Lanka!
        “Your government’s progress on political rights and civil liberties made it eligible for a Millennium Challenge Corporation compact, which when it is achieved, will spur economic growth.”
        JVP should also ask Bondscam Ranil to reveal how funds from the Neo Con Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) that is building the Colombo-Trincomalee transport corridor to Transport US military equipment from BIA to Trincomallee deep sea habour and drafting Sri Lanka’s “economic policy” to reveal
        1) how much MCC funding has Bondscam’s office and Charitha Rattwatta received
        2) what has MCC funds in past 3.5 years been spent on
        3) What are the poverty project impacts of MCC funds since it claims to work to reduce poverty
        in the interest of Aid Accountability, transparency and good governance.

        JVP is the only hope we have at present, so give them a chance and interact with them to clear the country of this curse. So who else is there to save the country? I think JVP is having a program at present to associate with the professionals and honest high achievers and who knows the may also be a part of their future cabinet, should they form a future governing party, without following the path of Maduro where with the best of intentions he had to depend on the corrupted officials around him be because being a one time bus driver didn’t have the sophisticated skills to form an efficient and honest administration where he has been badly exposed now and opened to abuse by outsiders.

          Yes JVP carries the wrong stigma, a violent stigma which cannot be easily forgotten by those suffered in that era.
          Not only the majority community the Minority suffered too very heavily with Racial issues propagated by the JVP.
          They were the Chee , Chee Of Party Politics.
          Their Past Political views cannot be easily forgotten and moved on by all who suffered. These are violent histories of the Past .
          They need to take the responsibility of the ” Fear Psychosis” created by them in the past.
          If they need to be taken seriously , they need to say Sorry to the Nation to the Majority and the Minority.
          Not enough with just coming up with some new ideas , It’s pay back time to be considered seriously as a serious Political Party.

          I’m not sure how the “Payback ” can be achieved, We saw the young men were either brain washed or dissatisfied with the Regime during that era took up to Violence and Perished IN HUMANELY in the hands of Armed forces .

          Parents who lost their young boy children would have been beyond themselves. Unable to express their loss or misery openly.
          This was another violent era of the “self serving Politicians and their Politics.”
          It cannot be deleted from the Srilankan miserable history of Violence.

          A point I’d like to make here in favour of JVPers,
          All can remember the recent Fake Coup and the nation was jumping in distress in Hot water created by no one other than our President and the Fake Greedy PM / Medamulana MR….
          The people were put in difficulties , due to this Coup and the Fake News of all sorts were flying from the Mouth piece Media Coolies . They were terrible days of course.

      Srilankan law system is corrupt to core. The Crooks languishing in foreign countries should be tried and charged for the crimes committed in those countries.

      Arguing the statemnt by the Head of the country that the Justice system is strong and Independent is a Lie and to Hoodwink the world.
      The mega crooks will go Scott free in AapehbAanduwe. Pardoned by the President and the PM.

      Ministry of Law is in favour of crooks and murderers to let off Scot free the big state crooks the small crooks and the elite crooks for money.
      Bribe speaks before the Noble Proffession of Law speaks.
      Even if they’re put in SL Prisons , they will become HEROES to some in the Political Sector , resulting 5***** star treatments.
      Look what happened to Aloysius( Geoffrey ) he has had all the luxuries while in prison , the moment he was released , he was partying with the County’s mega crooks sons.
      What’s the story there?
      They all scratched each other’s backs EVEN WHILE IN PRISON.
      Now he wants to travel to Singapore..

      Crooks abroad should be tried abroad , Same should be applied when MISSING PERSONS CASES called to be heard.
      Foreign judges and lawyers should be Included. Absolute necessity.
      Cannot be Trusted. How can we trust synthetic LOWYER like NR. There are thousands in the system like that. Will speak in favour of the crooks and murderers.

    Because he is biased! Obviously. He is a gay royalist, with a simple “r”. I dont know if he is on the “take”, but definitely he lost every opportunity to be one of the greatest leaders of this nation.

    If HE contest, we will fall back in the fire, but if that is what we as a nation deserve because in the last three years, we just allowed him and his “club” the run of the mill, so to say.

    But remember this, JVP. I will never forget your killing and destructive meaningless spree in 1971 and 1987. You have never openly declared that the JVP will never take to violence, neither have you indicated what your mandate is.

      What is the purpose of waiting for utopia, not even trying to realize the MIRROR image of the society. There is a saying, you need to build up the palace according to the yakas… yakagee haetiyata thamayi wimanaya goda naegenne .
      .
      I have the feeling, they should learn the ground realities of this society with over 90% are corrupted … overcorrupted. If need to be won in next election, they should too become some trickier.. else, you are lost and can not even take more seats in the parliament.

      The reason why they (JVP) are asking questions is because their friend Amal Perera and his son also have been arrested.

      Amal’s brother Sohan, the violinist has been to jail on drugs charges too. They have been junkies for a long time, and are also supporters of JVP and they sing for cocain. So the JVP is trying to help Amal Perera who endorsed them in 2015.

      All in politics are rogues, without exception.

    Why should these drug dealers be brought down to SL? The laws in Dubai are stricter than in SL. In SL the cases are postponed numerous times. Since Dubai police found drugs when they arrested these guys, why not allow the Dubai laws to be applied and punishment given saving time, energy and money of SL courts? Also how did one of those arrested had a diplomatic passport?

    This is where I become speechless. I always beleive, JVPrs are intelligent and today s JVPrs are clean and not facists as had been in 89, but I do believe, JVPrs are yet to learn lot to differentiate issues properly. It is no right to mix it up here drug traffickers with money launderers.
:
Jaliya W – Money launderer
Udayanga W – Mondy launderer
Ajun Mahedrana – I still believe, him being caught by the Process failure (if he is to be arrested, then Ajith Kabral should long have been behead bringing to GALLE FACE GREEN – the losses and all frauds made by him is much much bigger than that of AM)
    Incumbent President himself reiterated that the BOND SCAM LOSSES made by MR adminsitration is
    multiple folds huge than the losses claimed by Good governance govt.
    .
    Since 2008 – upto 2015 – according to the experts of PRESIDENT SILLYSENA – 99% of BOND SCAM losses have been reported. This could go even beyond that level.
In amount it is 990 Billions of rupees.
:
Since 2015 to 2017- the losses claimed by GG govt is nearly 10 Billions (1%).
    .
    However, the 10 billions that have now been frozen for future use.
    :
    While not even anything is even touched with the 990 billions of losses ??????????????.
    :
    Just yestreday only JVPrs come forward all of sudden to accuse BOTH RAJAAKSHES and RANIL W to be responsible for the losses.
    :
    Until Yesterday JVPrs kept quiet or ONLY spoke out that BOND SCAM was carried out by UNP. Latter is the target attack of JVPrs since their intention is more to take revenge on UNP for 89 human losses. To me, both UNP and JVPrs should be responsible for 89 INsurgency by which over 50 k of lanken YOUTH went missing/found burnt down on tyre pyres. Just becasue of the brutal atrocities, yet today, JVPrs have failed to win a single dozen of SEATs in the parliament today.

    Mahendram, Weeratunga, Wickremasinghe are very close with the political leadership (both UNP and SLFP(SLPP). However, these criminals are hiding in other countries but there are lots of personalities including high level political leadership involved in criminal activities like bribe, murder, abduction, ransom, commissions, rapes are still be in power and no one are bothered about bringing them justice. Even if Madusha brought back to Srilanka he will not be punished because he has the power to come out. The law and order and justice is only applicable for poor, innocent and those who raised their voices against the high power political leadership.

    Communist JVP has no clue of what they are talking.

    Forget about Jaliya. Colombo Media many times reported that he cannot leave US. The why the Communist are asking for him? It is his wife and sister who signed his bail release has to be brought in lief of him.

    Udyanka was arrested by US’ request,while he tried to fly US, in Dubai as per media. Sinhala Police agents went there and negotiated his release.

    Mahendran is in Singapore. Media has provided couple of evidences to that. No criminal evidence provided to Singapore Police to arrest an innocent citizen.

    Madush’s where about was known for long time. It seem Sinhala police requested suddenly for his arrest. Until Media figure out & report of what this new drama is about, we have to wait patiently.

    Ranil must accept in public that AM is a thief & apologize to the country for making him CB chief unless he doesn’t have political future (democratically).

    That’s the very reason for evading elections & clinging in to meaningless national government idea.

    Those don’t have survival without him (like Kiriella) are his ardent supporters.

    One is at a loss to figure out as to why JVP is asking the PM, “Why Mahendran, Jaliya And Udayanga Not Arrested In The Same Way Madush Was Nabbed”?
    Why not the Executive President?
    .
    In any case Madush was arrested by Dubai Police for drug offences and Lankan Police could not have had any input.
    Lankan Police is yet to approach Singapore Police, with evidence, to arrest Mahendran.
    Our former Ambassador to US Jaylia’s passport is in the hands of US.
    Our former Ambassador to Russia Udayanga is an Interpol fugitive wanted by Ukraine.
    .
    The questions raised by JVP are childish.

      Apee Srilankan Government knew about these drug dealers excistence in the Middle East for a long time.
      What’s the song and dance now? Why the Apee Aanduwe sat and watched for years
      while the gang enjoyed the loots Partying at Apparently in the Medamullana Mahamodayas 5***** Palace hotel in the Gulf state. Apparently the CROOK Cousin Jaliya ex USA / SLankan envoy had partied with over 100s of his family and friends flew out FREE BY AIRLANKA ?? So the saga of FRAUD OF STATE wealth goes!!!!!
      These drug traffickers were caught by Dubai Justice system , it is considered a mega criminal offence by the civilised world .
      Our Drug importing Mega Mafias in Politics and high places CANNOT and SHOULD NOT INTERFERE AND BRIBE THE LAWYERS HERE AND ABROAD.
      OUR children and grandchildren , even the great grand children can live without the DRUG MENACE IN APEE AANDUWE hopefully in the future.

    Best is to hand over this gang (including DPL Passport holder) to U.A.E authorities and tell them to punish according to their law eg: Chop hands or Heads.

    When they back here they will get bail then go underground.

    What about the gangs who send Sinhala. babies to Singapore & Malaysia for prostitution?
    Bukit Bintang area in Kuala Lumpur & Geylang area in Singapore are full of Sinhala babies on streets guarded by pimps. Shame this is organized by rich so-called Buddhist women in Colombo.

    Mahendran has got Singapore citizenship so not easy to bring him, who helped to fill the UNP coffer.

    JVP knows the answer for its question more than anybody else . So why waste
    time trying to trivialize a break through on a massive nationally important
    criminal operation carried out overseas ? It is good for J V P to be proud of the
    operation , never mind who did it but it is a job done with perfection , it is a
    thumb up that is needed and not ranting and raving for everything . Of course
    those that J V P want arrested should be arrested but fraud and drug dealing
    are not same ! Our prisons will need expansion before embarking on catching
    white collar crimes in different forms by almost all of 1.6 million public work
    force plus the grass root level politicians ! Can start with popular school syndrome !
    Parents , children , teachers , principals , address suppliers and facilitators and
    at the end politicians all will need to make a visit ! COUNTRIES LIKE OURS ARE
    NOT READY YET TO WORK BLACK AND WHITE ! IT IS NOT THAT EASY TO
    ESTABLISH !

I am suspicious this reservation was RENT TO OWN TYPE buying of the hotel by RAJAPAKSES and FRIENDS.

    The PM in his cunning and cynical way confusing the people by his answers.

    The drug dealers and his dear guv’ner friend’s cases are different..
    The former was arrested for an offence committed in Dubai- for which he surely would be punished there before sending ( his post execution remains perhaps)

    S’pore has no reason to arrest the guv’ner as his misdeeds were done in SL.-not in Spore.

    His arrest will depend on how seriously his friends in SL pursue the matter.
    If they are as half enthusiastic as they are in a possible handing over ofSL military guys to foreign governments for trial – the guv’ner would have been brought back to SL by now.

    Anyway it would be interesting to see what yarn the PM would spin – spinning around with his thumbs tucked into his waist band.,

    Appe anduwa can only deal with some innocent or weak guys. If a peon gets a bribe of Rs 5 he is hand cuffed and locked up. But these guys are all backed by the Great Leaders of Mother Lanka and thus they cannot be touched. Dont worry that Dubai guy too may escape from Dubai like the other thieves. What a shame Ranil says he will be dealt by Dubai Government! Isnt it unfair? Being a leading Sri Lankan patriot, will he get a fair trial in Dubai? He should be brought to SL and let our justice system to handle him. May ask former Chief (In) Justice Sarath silva to handle the case.

    Madush is a man from very ordinary family, in other words a man from working class. The other three men are from the capitalist class. People should understand the different treatment of this government to people belong to different classes. JVP MP Nalinda Jayathissa has not understood this basic thing , instead he is pressing for the government to ask Dubai to deal with his offence in Dubai itself while others are wanted to be brought to justice in Sri Lanka. This is how current JVP is working for working class of Sri Lanka.

    If Arjun Mahendran to be arrested, Ajith Kabral should have been beheaded by bringing to Galle face green right ?. please read the following.
    .
    Amount of the losses he deliberately made together with MAFIA BOSS is nearly 1000 Billions:
    1000 Billion= 1000 x 1000 million= 10 000 00, 000 000 lacks
    if a poor house cabe be complete by 25 lacks,
    how many houses for notherners and sourtherners could have been built out …

    4 lacks of people could get their shelters…
    Rajapakshes should come forward and response to all these.
    If as experts reveal over 1000 billions have gone lost during the days of Rajano.

    That was lankens could finally uplift the poverty levels.

    There is none so blind as those who refuse to see.
    Nimal and a few others are singing hosannas for
    the JVP.

    There was a time when they were honest, committed
    and dedicated. Alas, Malik Samarawickrema should
    be given the credit for breaking them. This is now
    the monthly Rs 2.5 million for AKD and his party
    became the order of the day.

    It is better to have the UNP than the JVP. It is a wolf,
    a cunning one, in sheep’s clothing. Beware!!
