Lake House Management Refuses To Overturn Nearly 40 Coup Appointments

The new management of the Associated Newspapers of Ceylon Limited (ANCL) has approved 40 illegal appointments and transfers made by the fake government, Colombo Telegraph learns.

Krishantha Cooray

Among them are trade unions activists affiliated with the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna (SLFP) and the Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLPP) who supported the constitutional coup and the fake government.

The appointments were ordered by the “illegal” management of the company, headed by Wasantha Priya Ramanayaka, the Media Director of President Maithripala Sirisena who was appointed the Chairman of Lake House by the fake government.

The UNP repeatedly stated that the appointments given by the fake government would be deemed illegal and be duly overturned under a legal government led by the UNP.

Nearly a month after establishing UNP-led “legal government”, the management of the Associated Newspapers of Ceylon Limited (ANCL) has failed to overturn the illegal appointments, promotions and transfers.

When contacted by Colombo Telegraph, a Deputy General Manager of the company confirmed that the new management, headed by Sirisena ally Krishantha Cooray, has not overturned the new appointments and the transfers.

The Deputy General Manager added that he was not aware of the reasons for the new management’s inaction on the appointments given by the 51-day administration.

Finance and Media Minister Mangala Samaraweera re-appointed Krishantha Cooray as the Chairman of the Associated Newspapers of Ceylon Limited (SLFP) with the consent and support of President Maithripala Sirisena.

      “Lake House Management Refuses To Overturn Nearly 40 Coup Appointments”
      Who cares? Who reads the Daily Noise anyway?
      Mrs. B came down to 8 seats while controlling Lake House. Mahinda lost with not only Lake House but all the pliant media under control.
      AND……… the coup failed despite all these appointments.

      It appears Mangal is not going to sing the Avamangala on the illegal appointments. If you can’t fight and oppose go with it seem to be the way out?

    If you’re shameless enough, you can sell anything. (Ryan Holiday – American author, marketer, and entrepreneur.). Mahimda is shameless enough and he is certainly trying to sell something: HIMSELF

    This is the problem Ranil always exhibited. He cannot handle crisis. He can never take the bull by the horn.
    Always ducks and dives.
    As soon as he came back he should have given a stern warning to Sirisena showing him of the possibility of him being impeached and immediately reversed all the appointments that he had affirmed. This way he is doing a total disservice to those who were in those position previously and worked hard to hold some standards of neutrality. Now he will have no credibility with the decent public servants as he did not stand by them.

      Ranjana Fernanodo.
      .
      This I think You may not be right here- if he cant manage a crisis how could it succeed in favour of him going by the October coup ?. He can but UNP has no other talented men even if SAJITH s oratory speeches sound to be fine. But Sajith is profile is not yet that matured I would say. He himself does not trust to take THAT much of Responsiblities.

      I think the state of LANKEN problems are complex than it appears to be.

      Who on earth ever guessed that SIRISENA the man would jump into the boat of Rajapakshe, though first seen as one of the reliable. His betrayal is not punishable by prevailing laws in the country. It is simply unethical to beneath contempt. later betrayed almost everything, he pledged just because HIS selfish gains (becoming common candidate for the next election) were above than anything else.

      Ranil is a leader that respect LAW and order: But still his stand is not good enough to crush lanken COMPLEX situation.

      Entire MEDIA Mudalalis are handled by hidden men but supporters of RAJAKASHES. What Rajapakshes ‘s evils become the general perception of the people – how can that be ?Danger of this should long have been noticed by lanken MEDIA ethics, but nothing succeeded in that over the past 3 years. Just because synergy of those media men and business men all togehter is much more powerful than and anything else.

      Dont you think lanken MEDIA men are even more lucrative than the Drug traffickers of Nimal Lanza nature ?

      The situaton is almost that of HITLER days in Germany – WHATEVER the good would have been buried under the carpet while ALL shits WITH icing covers are passed to the nation. Nation means majority of GRASS EATERs that would not do much but behave so indifferent regarding ON going politics. ; but their passiveness is seen as the FATE ( Iranama of the island nation).

    anybody would think the constitutional coup had won.That is because the ringleader is still the no 1 in the country and the spineless ranil is tolerating it without impeaching him.read troy and trojan.

    It is embarrassing to listen to Cooray or even read what he writes-so effusive, emotional, full of bumming , he must be like a peon near MS or Ranil.

    Krishantha Cooray is the nephew of late Evans Cooray, former Press Secretary to President Premadasa. Can’t Sajith do something ?

    Leader and advisors of coup are still enjoying the benefits and some have even got promotions ( caffe keerthi and lawyer of namal kumara are such examples ). Either ranil should fight for his party people and supporters of his government or he should go home and give it to someone who can do it.

    When I remember those halcyon days of Lake House, I cannot bear to see the indignities suffered on it. The great Don Richard W and all the other eminently capable men and women who toiled in that once hallowed building must be turning in their graves.

    Lake House, I only have tears for you.

    [“Lake House Management Refuses To Overturn Nearly 40 Coup Appointments”]
    Looks like the two bad teams playing the ‘us vs us’ game do not mind the appointments.
    Why should Lake house object? Lake House can operate in spite of!

    Top Lawyer Krishantha Cooray has succumb to Sirisena plot. Sirisena though undeducated knows how to tame any giant elephant.

    Krishantha Cooray may be the best appointment that the Yahapalanaya government has made.

    I have seen Krishantha Cooray perfoming in Court; a treat to watch. Reminds me the brillanace of his late father Evans who Premadasa relied on so much. By the way did Evans die?

    This Cooray clan has produced such birillance like Nandisena, Sirisena and Chanaka Coorays. May Good Lord bless them all and keep them!

    If Lake House makes its appointments merit based, we will be denied entertaining rubbish like the latest report on the state of football, in the Sunday Observer last Sunday……..

    Jan 14 (SO) Big claims are being made by both the new Sports Minister Harin Fernando and the Football Federation of Sri Lanka that football will be developed and popularised all over the country after the sport took root in the island more than 200 years ago. Minister Harin Fernando like his predecessors of the past made the remarks when he met Anura de Silva and Jaswar Umar ……..

    The fact is that…
    The contemporary history of the world’s favourite game spans more than 100 years. It all began in 1863

    Did we play football before it was ‘invented’, or did we invent it?

    Cooray, as Whatmore says, is NOT a lawyer
    He is a fixer. He was with Ranil. Shifted
    to Sirisena to become his informant and
    get favours done. He is also doing business.
    He got his brothers wife a diplomatic
    appointment. She is not a citizen of Sri
    Lanka but Australia. She lives there. If
    you read what this man write, he is the power
    that has been making and breaking
    governments. Why is he giving instructions
    to CID officers from the Hilton Hotel?
