JVP Calls For A Probe Into Yoshitha’s Appointment Into SL Navy

A complaint calling for an immediate probe into the recruitment of Rajapaksa ‘prince’ Yoshitha into Sri Lanka Navy, is due to be made today by the JVP.

JVP Western provincial Councillor Dr. Nalinda Jayatissa addressing the media yesterday had said they are urging the Defense Ministry to conduct a probe into the following aspects of Yoshitha’s recruitment to the Navy:

  • YoshithaThe process of his recruitment
  • How he was able to receive a scholarship to study at the Royal Naval College in Dartmouth, UK
  • How he was declared the batch-top despite failing to successfully complete the academic course at the Dartmouth university
  • His conduct whilst being a government servant upon being appointed as an officer of the Sri Lanka Navy

It is said that Mahinda Rajapaksa’s final act as the President was to relieve Yoshitha as an officer of the Navy.

Meanwhile, the JVP also urged the public to provide them with information regarding corruption and injustices committed by the Rajapaksa family, their henchmen as well as state officials during the Rajapaksa regime in order to conduct their own probe.

    How about investigating the heir to the throne, Namal’s law degree? It would be good to know if he genuinely passed the bar exam or not. Also it would serve the Sri Lankan people well, to find out where their luxury fleet of cars are, and how they purchased it all. The new government does not have to purchase new cars, the fleet owned by the Rajapaksa’s would be sufficient to go around. They wasted our money, so better put it to good use.

      Yoshitha effectively stole the scholarship from a young promising SLN cadet of that bach.

      Rumour is that it was the bach top of that intake to SLN. From Rajarata area. He obviously had excellent performance, but not good enough connections.

      If Yoshitha was a Gentleman with a backbone he would have refused to occupy that poor chap’s slot to study at Dartmouth Royal Navay College.

      Cheers!

      PS: I commend JVP for taking this gross abuse of power and injustice up. They ought to consider investigating the matter in UK itself directly as well.

      I would not trust the new “defence minister” on this issue. Ruwan is a product of political nepotism in this country as well. Just like Yoshitha. Ruwan is only there due to his family links. No other reason.

      Those SUPER luxury cars have already been shipped to Dubai…. to a Businessman whose bro has a group of restaurants on Marine Drive.. He is the one who imported dhal that was meant as chicken feed in Canada which was NOT fit for human consumption.. A few photos are available on Sujeewa Senasinghe’s website showing the loading of these cars to a Sri-Lankan Airlines Airplane… SL airlines denied shipping ANY cargo that involved Luxury Cars just before elections. The officials who said so should be taken to court for holding Public office and misleading the public…. these are MR’s henchmen..all should be locked up and the keys thrown in the Beire Lake.. MR is a crook, he would find ways and means to come back to power, which may include assassinating MS RW or anyone who crosses his path…

      The days we were led by a 4-legged leader is gone. So now the time has come and the way the wind blows, we can feel it nobody would be easy to repeat anything against the nation- regardless of their race, party or anything – all the laws will work against everyone equally.

      Believe me, had MS been defeated – MR and the clan would have been merry making by today – manipulating the masses further by feeding them with the blatant lies. On the 29th, the current regime will reveal the gravity of the economy – though the former Prez even today holds big talks about his devleopment projects. His way was living brutally and let others allow living brutally. Anyway, thanks go to THE PEOPLE… most intelligent than we ever guessed at – made it possible. May all powers be blessed with good and fair ones.

    Shame for that uniform itself, what a mockery of events this Rajapaksas can do for this country.

    Hundreds of qualified Naval officers were not even looked into this kind of courses and all of them given to family and the bootlickers.

    We need a better cleansing act from the new govt

    Thanks to the JVP for bringing this matter up. Let us await to see what action would be taken.
    There is also doubts and gossips Re Namal passing the attorney at law examination conducted by the law college. There was some confusion about the manner the law college principals son passed the same examination a couple of years ago and we understand there was fraud in that as well and whilst the principal was removed from the law college and his son’s results were cancelled and barred from these examinations for a certain period. It is tge same principal who was attending to when Namal set for the exam.

    There were news at that time that Namal was received by the Principal with betel leaf and was given a seperate room for doing the examination. It would be worthwhile immediate investment on this as well.

    THE JVP IS SLEEPING OR DOES NOT HAVE THE VOLUME TO COMPREHEND MAJOR ISSUES??????

    Is the JVP aware why RW took the Central Bank & SEC under his care?

    Does the JVP know why Ravi.K was appointed the Minister of Finance when he has an on going Prima Facie case against him for exchhange control violation?
    Ravi.k is avoiding going to courts to answer charges on 29/Jan by fixing the delivery of mini-budget for that day? WHAT A FRAUD??
    JVP SPEEING.

    This issue is more serious than running after cheap news as Yoshith’s Navy appointment.

    SO JVP CAN NOT UNDERSTAND MAJOR ISSUES CRIPPLING YAHAPALANAYA. WHERE RW PULL THE WOOL OVER THE VOTER’S EYES.
    VOTER IS NOT BLIND BUT THE JVP IS.

    The Rajapakse wheeler dealer Sajin Vaas Gunawardena lived in a large house down Manthri Place off Park Road Colombo 05 for about 3 years. At the time the place was guarded by secret police. There is a big wall around the house .There were many cars parked there. The neighbours used say that Mahinda rajapakse used to come there late night to meet with lady friends. Now this place has a board saying Road Development authority. Please investigate who the owner is , what is the rent and what goes on there. It may be a hiding place foe sajin Vaas Gunawardena and his type of shady people.

    This man unfortunately did not guide his children well.
    He trained them as he trained himself for thuggery and robbery.

    His children also committed numerous crimes like himself.

    They have no religion. though they show off that they are half Buddhist and half Christian, factually they are none.

    Mahinda Rajapaksa’s three son are like Mahinda,
    They have murdered many.
    They have stolen innocent peoples wealth.
    They have raped many girls.
    They have spoken many lies.
    They have taken illegal drugs and alcohol.

    They have no moral values.

    Now whole family must be brought to justice and imprison them for life.

      don’t become a racist. why not say a Sri lankan. Do we call all others whose corruption were exposed “Sinhalese or Buddhists” Do we say Wela Suda a Sinhalese where as if a Muslim or a Tamil brings Kudu, newspapers would say that a Muslim brought Kudu.

    This is the worst family I have ever seen in my life. Every cells in their blood is corrupted. Lies, Rapes, Murder, Threaten, Steal & etc etc.. are their born qualities. RACISM is the only reason this dog was in power for 9 years. He is only capable of disaster and destruction; That’s how they won the war. They did not follow any single law during the war.

    What about an investigation into the death of rugby player wasim thajudeen. There was a talk that he was killed by navy personnel and his car set on fire with his body inside.Whether true or not i don’t know,but it warrants an investigation,because there are accidents all the time,but how many you find with car exploding and charred body inside.

    Interesting.

    I also wonder what part the Brits played in it. Surely they knew that Yoshitha was MARA’s son. Surely they knew that MARA was corrupt and should have declined to admit Yoshitha. Are the Brits complicit in the whole saga? Did they actively encourage putting Yoshitha forward as a candidate.

    Did the naval officers still serving in the NAVY promote Yoshitha over others? They need to be dealt with.

    Did high ranking career Naval officers with war experience feel comfortable having to kowtow to a brat called Yoshitha.

    It is a good opportunity for so many unpalatable issues to be confronted, wrongs redressed and professionalism restored in all armed forces.

      “Are the Brits complicit in the whole saga? Did they actively encourage putting Yoshitha forward as a candidate.

      Comply, complicit complicate committe to kill the idea.

      They as the rulers are complicit from concept to professions to civil servants to weerawansa
      finally does not end with Musharraf the exile after the direct abuse; still funding.

      Why invite trouble to solve trouble??

    Look at that first picture -From a Pauper to a Prince. Boy! They never had it so good at state expense. And the Castle even has a Grand piano for the King to thump on, drowning the voices of his protesting masses.

    It runs in the family – Father Mahinda cheated his way through Law College – Felix Dias did him the favour. Brother Namal cheated his way through Law College – the then Principal did him the favour. Now Yoshitter.
