Labour MPs Call For Expulsion Of Sri Lanka’s Defence Attaché From The UK Following ‘Throat-Cutting Gestures’

Joan Ryan MP and Siobhain McDonagh MP have called on the Foreign Secretary to “withdraw Brigadier Priyankara Fernando’s diplomatic papers and expel him” from the UK, after he was filmed making ‘throat-cutting gestures’ to Tamils protesting outside the Sri Lankan High Commission in London, on Sunday 4 February.

Ryan and McDonagh, the Vice Chair and Senior Vice Chair of the Tamil All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG), also said in their letter to Boris Johnson MP that the conduct of Brigadier Fernando – Sri Lanka’s Defence Attaché to the UK – was “inappropriate, unacceptable and threatening […] from someone who is serving in an official capacity as a guest of this country.”

          Utterly ludicrous silly man in Srilankan Army Uniform with colours disgraced the SL High commission, the Srilankan High commissioner from the UNP stock and Sri
          Lanka Incuding the President and the PM of SL , from a diplomatic high position.
          In a Public road in UK I guess this Silly man has shown his w worthiness to his cronies.
          God Save Srilanka.
          Definitely he’ll be in the next plane back to my country to avoid arrests or embarassment.Our Prez will be at the BIH with a garland for disgracing him.

          Soysa you are absolutely right. Recently a Sinhalese person was threatened by a group of SL ex-service personnel which has been captured on CCTV. They have been reported to police and the Sinhalese person told me that he is going to use this brigadiers behaviour to prove that all SL service personnel active or retired behave the same way even in UK, as they think that they have total impunity as in Srilanka for whatever crime they commit. What a shame to so called gentlemen.

      Brig. Fernando,

      You bloody idiot!

      Where did all your training go? If you want to kill Lankans do it when no one is watching …….just carpet bomb them like vermin …………then it’s zero casualties ……… the skeletons discovered in Matale are Neanderthal man and his relatives – man, talk about killing two birds with one stone!……

        Sinhalese Aryan most of the present day Sinhalese both low and high born are recently arrived ,assimilated South Indian immigrants( Tamils) . Sri Lankan Tamils have marginally higher North Indian DNA compared to the Sinhalese 28% to 25% and there is very little Aryan amongst the Bengali. They are Dravidian or Dravidian Mongol. The Original Dravidians were all Tamil or proto/semi Tamil speakers. Just like the Elu dialect that was spoken by the Naga and Yakka in Sri Lanka, which was a simple semi Tamil Dravidian dialect. If this general’s family name is Fernando, he will definitely be a Karawa of recent immigrant Indian Tamil origin now beating the anti Tamil drum , like the vast majority of these South Indian(Tamil) immigrants assimilated or assimilating into the Sinhalese identity. You now see many Colombo Chetties and Bharathas( Paravan) who until a generation ago were classified as Tamil but not now, beating the anti Tamil drum.

      Sir,
      Brigadier Fernando should be removed by GOSL. His gestures, however emotional in the heat of the moment, is not what is expected of a man holding a diplomatic position. BTW, protestors were not Tamils, but hardcore LTTE lunatics. Crying over spilled milk.
      Cheers!
      PS: JOAN Ryan & SIOBHAIN McDonagh, Did you ever request the expulsion of Anton Balasingahm? The LTTE was literally slitting throats in hundreds. Rather than making gestures. YOU WROTE NO SUCH LETTER. NEVER! May we see a copy of your letter requesting the expulsion of Adele Balasingahm? For aiding and abetting CHILD SOLDIERS in Sri Lanka? SHAMELESS, OPPORTUNISTIC, HYPOCRITES!

        “JOAN Ryan & SIOBHAIN McDonagh, Did you ever request the expulsion of Anton Balasingahm?”

        As long as the throat slitting is not carried out on their soil they usually feel fine.
        However your condemnation sounds like conditional.

        Imagine this disgraceful brigadier is living next door to you and you have a reasonable grievance against him, will you put up with his threatening hand gesture? Do you believe your family is safe especially if your grand daughters don’t like his unnecessary touchy feely attention?

        He is damn sure no one can punish him.
        Therefore you should condemn him in no uncertain term.

          If Brits can live next door to those LTTE flag waving, ignorant monkeys, they bloody well can tolerate slit-throat-gesturing “military diplomat” as well. However, I can’t. Nor can you, I presume. Therefore GOSL should recall him back to Colombo. We can set an example to legendary British hypocrisy. Finally, we can teach something to ever-so instructive Brits. Could I be any clearer than that?

            Throat slitting is official, for more details watch the video link in the old Colombo Telegraph news item. This is what expected of members of armed forces. Perhaps Daya Ratnayake was expressing his master’s views, perhaps he had been a psychopath, perhaps he is another smart ass patriot with means to slit throat, may be drunken monkey with a sharp razor.

            If you agree with Dayan you will be judged as an enemy of the people. Dayan is fast becoming a sadist and a psychopath.

But purely based on your call of expelling Adele, it appears like, you are calling Britain to the shut Genocide Criminal’s Embassy and kick on the butt of those criminals back to Lankawe for the Zero Caultry Genocide war they carried out on Tamil.

        Spot on!

        Sri Lankan’s first!

        These people have a tiger flag surrounded with bullets and blood red for the blood they wish to spill. Silenced all Tamil politicians who were moderate. Indiscriminately sent children to bomb civilians.

        These cowards funded all those killings!

        Imagine if people came to the street with alqaeeda flags! What the hell! These are terrorist!

        This has nothing to do with Sri Lankan Tamils but to do with separatist who killed and want to kill and have only an ethnocentric Tamil race country. They slaughtered moderate Tamils, plenty of Sinhalese including those in temples and drove and slaughtered the muslims in the north and east!

        Freedom of speech must not be confused with propaganda of ideology that is anti human. They killed there own children. Cut their necks!

      Dear Labor MPs,

      Yes, the Para-British made serious errors, by introducing Westminster style democracy to the Paras in Lanka, whose average IQ is 79, compared to 100 for the Para-British. It is like giving razors to a bunch of monkeys, Para-Sinhala and Para-Tamil monkeys, who have been slashing themselves for the past 70 years.

    It is time to set example. To maintain Diplomacy, Decency, Civility & Maturity this Rapist Army Personnel need to be brought under punishment action. Lankawe Racist Government never took any action on these people. These guys raped women even when they went as UN Peacekeepers. They stop at nothing. The previous EP is challenging the current EP and PM if they ever could take any action on him for his past horrible & violent crimes accused on him.

    Expel him.

      Evidence? What evidence?
      Unless there is a photo shot or video to show Brigadier Fernando making the said sick gesture of threat to the protesters, the UK authorities will not likely take action to deport him on criminal charges let alone terrorism charges.That said.
      Even if that evidence was available it would be suppressed by the SL diplomats in London by offering a big bribe to the demonstrater who has that evidence.
      I do not think the UK will take any action especially when a princely regent had been invited to grace the 70th anniversary as Chief Guest. Conservative Lord Naseby(Nasty) will be very angry if that happened.

        When is the government take these matters seriously? Former Army Commander Daya Ratnayake 1
        (1 August 2013 -21 February 2015) threatened to behead separatists. The recent patriotic gesture of an ass was not an isolated incident.

        There are too many smart ass patriots in this forum rejoicing the fact that a man in uniform has gesticulated something that is threatening something that is firmly entrenched in his brain, or simply a village idiot in uniform.

        This is a serious matter the state has to deal with urgently. Daya Ratnayake, Priyanka Fernando, Dayan, Dr Gota (DSc- former official National Hangman), ……… and the numerous members of Priyanka/Gota fan club ……. need long term psychiatric treatment and counselling. The danger is they are allowed to live among the people with weapon and were being trained to kill.

    These Labour MPs obviously cannot see the ubiquitous Tiger flag with its crossed guns, the brandishing of which makes the demonstrators other than innocuous Tamils.

      Responding “as any member of the military of a democratic state”..?
      Dayan speak for your country alone.

      Besides no decent citizen will be incensed by the behaviour of the MP’s but praise them for being on the side of humanity. You must so wish for the government continuing the mass murder of the Tamil people.

      Death threat gestures by the armed forces towards the Tamils are routine. A couple of months ago Prof. Hoole reported that he was threatened by a sargent at the Mullaitivu courts who after carefully checking Professor’s Election Commission ID virtually thrust his index finger deep into his chest as if he would shoot him. He did it boldly in front of all the people gathered outside the courts including people from the Professor’s own office and other police personal.

      What you see is a classic death threat: Death threats are also part of a wider campaign of abuse targeting a person or a group of people. Here we see signs of state terrorism, and how comfortable the Sri Lankan government is with mass murder etc..

      .Dayan you have sold your soul for position and all that free education money spent by the tax payers on you could have been better used by somebody else who possesses logic.

      Poor Mervyn indeed.

      Actually, Dr, if you look closely there is no LTTE flags present, but Tamil Eelam flags instead. The difference is hard to stop, but once you know the difference it is clear. Thus, Officer Fernando is clearly signalling death threats to the Tamil minority.

        Are you being serious?
        When did the horrible flag become Tamil Eelam flag?
        Just because VP designed it the flag is not legitimate.
        Even if you want to have a flag can you not find an artist who can creatively think and design most acceptable inclusive flag.

        From day one the Tiger flag has become a symbol of everything wrong with VP the psychopath, LTTE, the war, oppression, terrorism, fascism, … stupidity of the Tamils.

        You should rather question those carry the flag about the large funds which were collected even near the end of the war. Are they working for Dr Gotabhaya (DSc)?

        Thero De Silva is trying to project him even beyond the Rapist Army Brigadier because there is reason.

        On their recent visit to Lankawe, Sumanthiran explained to the British Monarchies that there is chance the Old Royals returning back to power. Thero is trying to have the best country reserved for him before 2019. But, as some other commentators suggested, North Korea is the best one for him. Because, soon, the North Korea will have attracted a nuclear war on it.

        The current rulers came to power with an election promise of “No Leader, No Commander, No Soldier will be prosecuted for Genocide crimes”. What else can be expected from them.

      Are you suggesting he should return back to the island with vengeance to wreak havoc and revenge among those he deems responsible for his dismal behaviour?

      Would you like Sirisena to send STF to deal with the flag waving a handful of protesters?
      I am sure you see International Conspiracy in every nook and cranny. Would you like Sirisena to punish Tamils back here for the flag waving protest in London as Dr Mahinda Rajapaksa (LLD + PhD x 3) did after his heroic visit to the UK?

      Do you think the ugly lion with sword in its paw on his military badges, regalia, and accessories and his raging behaviour make the Priyankass Fernando a diplomat?

      You should be asking yourself how much danger he poses as a military man (who is trained and armed to kill innocent civilians) to the wider society when he snaps.

      Thero is the example of Avaai’s Moon, where she says the moon not minding to clear the dark spots on its character, cleared the darkness on the earth’s surface.
      Thero, who would not be willing to explain what happened to Tamil youths in Parish when he was the boss of French Embassy but Thero is explaining what happened in British Embassy. Comedy Thamai! Height of the Idiotic hypocrisy.

      The accusation was “Lankawe embassy in Paris imported criminals from Colombo and trashed Tamil youths’ throats. (Literally Shot). The case was covered in that neat way so even the Paris Police did not solve it. In the light of this British incident Paris Police should reopen that case.

      American Ambassador Jalia is held in America for crimes. Ukraine (Russian) Ambassador Udayanga held in Dubai on his way to America for crimes. Brazil Ambassador ran out of there for crimes.

      Thero framed a case in UNHRC in 2009 against Tamils. It did not hold. His angry bosses removed him from UN mission. Now he is hoping to go back Britain. Probably Thero wants to break record of Chris Norris, who bravely lied to CNN but was beaten by Vas.

      Dear Dayan, you are living in a cuckoo’s land. UK is fully functioning democracy which values freedom of expression and peaceful protest. Just because you have a pathological hatred towards LTTE, UK government is not going to dance to your tune. Both MPs who signed the letter are from labour, but they are representing all party parliamentary group for Tamils which includes MPs from conservatives and Liberal. For your information UK banned LTTE for its acts of killing non-combatants and dissidents, and not for its political principles of liberating Tamils from clutches of the racist terrorist Srilanka government. Even during war times LTTE flew their flags and organised meetings in UK which were permitted by the government. Even if they are fascists they are acting within the law of UK, and how dare a Srilankan military officer try to intimidate them. It is time UK government come hard on these Sinhala racists who are behaving like supremacists in a foreign soil. Do you know that LTTE flag was unfurled inside SL High Commission premises by a lawyer and author when he went to give a lecture there in 2015 on elephants in Srilanka.

      Waving the Tiger flag is not illegal in western countries. Only In genocidal Sri Lanka and its partner in the Eelam Tamil genocide Hindia. You can wave the lion or cat or cheetah flag too and they will not do anything . However making these sort of threatening gestures to public demonstrating is illegal. By the way the tiger flag is the flag of the Cholas one of India’s greatest empires. It is because of these Tamil Cholas that Indian culture Hinduism/Buddhism spread to the Asia especially to SE Asia. The result of their rule are the world marvels like Borubudur, Angkor wat. Typical South Indian Dravidian architecture.

    Most of these comments are coming from diaspora Tamils who take any opportunity to kick Sri Lanka. These ugly diaspora fellows have been smarting since 2009. The self-righteous asses live abroad and try to stoke the fires of hatred back home, having been let down by all their leaders since 1948. The Tamils who live in Sri Lanka are completely different.

      “Tamils who live in Sri Lanka are different.”

      i. e. They want their necks to be split? Is that what you are suggesting Taraki.

      Murder is being suggested, and it seems normal to you and Dayan and the like.

      Guess goners are goners.

        No Ramani, I am saying that the Tamils in Sri Lanka should not be judged by the actions of the Tamil diaspora abroad. Wouldn’t you agree?

      “Most of these comments are coming from diaspora Tamils who take any opportunity to kick Sri Lanka.”

      Rightly so. In fact you should join them in kicking a******es everywhere you see them. every opportunity you get.

      “These ugly diaspora fellows have been smarting since 2009.”

      You got your k*****rs in a twist.
      The protests have been going on since early 1970s in parallel to what was happening to their people in this island according to my friend the old codger.

      You will be surprised to hear the Tamil diaspora also protested against Sri Lanka’s killing spree between 1987 and 1990, in front of the same high commission says my friend the old codger. Usually there were 5 Sinhalese to 15 Tamils who voiced in support of the innocent Sinhala civilians who were being massacred in thousands during the dark days.

      You need to stop looking through your Sinhala/Buddhist fascist a**e and see it as it is. Difficult but doable.

    The Rajapakse legacy continues.
    Another dumb military man given a diplomatic position for services rendered to political parties. In any one’s mine, this idiot’s conduct has confirmed that arbitrary killings & human right violations occurred during the war. In fact, a clear demonstration how protesters are dealt with in SL.
    While at it, he might as well have taken a couple of pot shots from an embassy window like the Libyan diplomat who killed a British WPC while shooting at protesters outside their embassy in the 70s. They have diplomatic immunity & the worst case scenario would be deportation from UK, not banged up for murder.

      “I dont know why these toilet cleaning refugees are crying”

      I empathize with you.
      If they don’t turn up for work you will end up doing their share of work as well.
      Therefore you must stop the mad fellow slitting your work colleagues’ throat.

      By the way is this the Brigadier who ran away from Elephant Pass attack or was it the Battle of Mullaitivu (1996)? If he was, he is indeed a lucky one who survived wheres about 1200 of his colleagues didn’t survive.

    This moron, Fernando, should be recalled and cashiered (won’t happen as he undoubtedly got the job because of a political connection). His action provides ammunition for anti-Sri Lankan forces who want to portray the armed forces as uncivilized and brutish, and fully capable of atrocious war crimes. So he’s exhibit 1 for that argument.

    Imagine if the British defence attache made a similar gesture to nationalists protesting before Prince Edward and asking for an apology for British colonialism. Sad to think that the country has sunk so low that it has to select an ass**** to represent the armed forces in London.

    The problem with this country is that it has become so polarized that anything, however outrageous, is justified if it done by the favored party. No surprise then that the justification for this unbelievably stupid act comes from those who when confronted with brutal abductions, political killings, and ethnic violence only managed a shrug. True patriots should denounce this piece of slime who brings the army into disrepute.

    Nobody knows if these mad dogs are trained in ISIS camps or trained in La La Country wild lion caves. Nobody knows these uncivilized animals ate human flesh in Lal La country wild lion caves or ate human flesh eating Sharks in Colombo rulers’ parties.

    But this is what they did to Rajiv in a host country on a diplomatic invitation.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XwZeAKe74uk. This is not the first time the Lankawe Appe Aanduwa Aappa Diplomacy showing its true face.

    Without waiting for Yasmin Sooka do what she did to Jagath Jayasuriya (Made him to run to Colombo from Brasilia with one leg shoe), Britain should throw this Mad Dog Vachon into Atlantic Ocean. Otherwise it will be security Challenge to Britain. This mad dog can attack human being on the London roads.

    The Lankan Armed Services are segregated to the extreme of near mono-lingual recruitment. The culture is to consider Tamils as enemies. Brigadier Pryanka Fernando’s gesture is animal instinct.
    In SL, Pryanka will never show such gestures to an unruly protest group of Sinhalese.
    SL Armed Services have evolved into an Egyptian type. GoSL cannot and will not recall him.

    The military man in UK should be given aheroes welcome in Sri Lanka, but he belongs to the wrong party,else he would not have been posted to London.
    The throat cutting gesture is only a symbol, we must encourage these Tamil buggers to cut their throats. If that doesn’t work distribute free cyanide capsules. I will pay the bill for the first 100,000.

      The only thing that you foolish, lazy, violent, racist, hateful, jealous and mean spirited Sinhalese can do is, send your women folk as slaves to the mid-east, spend/waste the hard earned money that they send, drink and rape your own daughters.

        Jamis Panda,

        What the Tamils in India could do was to go as slaves and serve colonial parasites. You could be a descendant of one of those slaves brought to Sri Lanka.

          Possible,however you send your women folks to wash Medieval Middle Eastern bums.

          “You could be a descendant of one of those slaves brought to Sri Lanka.”

          You could be descendant of South Indian mercenaries, Vellaikkara Padei. Ask your grandpa he might tell you some family secrets.

    Yeppudi Sakkara mad dog. You buggers should stand to attention at the very mention of the name of this Sinhala hero who asked all you buggers to take a clean shave, and then do what Velu did to Mahattaya. It is universally agreed that Tamils are the scourge of this planet. They have to be exterminated or encouraged to take the pill. Not the effing contraceptive pill you goose! I am talking of the pill to eternal happiness. I encourage, nay appeal to all my para Demala brothers to either cut their own necks, self immolate, or take the effing pill. If all these fail then you are made of sturdier stuff like the heroic Sinhala people, and should continue leAding a moosala life. Poda Pandi.

      FYI LTTE is a banned organisation in the UK and in many other western European countries. Could you find out from your High Commission in the UK whether Tiger Flag, T shirts portraying VP’s photos, Tiger Eelam map, ………… are banned in England.

      If not banned why doesn’t Sri Lanka get them banned? Laksman Kathirgamar cannot be expected to
      help the government.

      A bottle of Arrack, free Biryani parcel, free transport facilities, …. eat drink and ………………

      “If this was a ISIS support group will the UK government allow a protest like this??”

      Until most of LTTE’s hidden billions are traced Brits will let the carnival going provided they don’t resort to violence. Most probably Dr Gota’s Tamil boys are responsible for organizing such protests. Brits also do not want to drive the activists underground which would make it difficult to keep a tab on them. You need to be bit sophisticated to follow English practical logic.

      Therefore you just forget the whole thing.
