Left Parties Call For Marapana’s Resignation

The Lanka Sama Samja Party (Majority Group) and the Communist Party of Sri Lanka  (Alternative Group) has condemned the statement of Minister Tilak Marapana in Parliament exonerating Avant Garde and defending the actions of Avant Garde when he has appeared and/or advised them in his professional capacity as an Attorney at Law regarding the same matter.

Issuing a statement Lal Wijenayake, the general secretary of the Lanka Sama Samja Party ( Majority group) and W. Subasinghe, the president Communist Party of Sri Lanka ( Alternative group) said; “It is our view that there is a clear conflict of interest and that it is morally wrong for the Minister to be in charge of the subject of and law and order with the Police Department under him. We cannot expect the people to feel that justice was done when Avent Garde has been a client of the Minister as admitted by the Minister. Therefore we call upon the Minister to honorably resign from the post of Minister in-charge of Law and order without degrading Parliament itself.

“This incident shows the level to which values in our political system has deteriorated and the enormous task before us to make the victory of January 8th meaningful and achieve the high values that the people expected from our political establishment.”

    Call upon him to honorably resign..?No! This shameless crooked lawyer is not fit to be a parliament member because he seems to be an agent of the avant-garde rogues. He should be immediately sacked!

      Sobitha Thero despised politicians and was with the people. The funeral of Ven. SObitha should be held at Independence Square so people can attend, and not at the parliament of corrupt morons which is all barricaded and where Ranil like to play king of a corrupt circus.
      There is a nexus of corruption between Marapana, Wijedasa Jarapassa the so called minister of justice and the Mahinda Jarapassa and family and stoogers that the Avant Guard case reveals.
      People should protest the manner in which corrupt politicians have appropriated this great monk’s anti-corruption and social justice program and launch a massive protest at Independence Square against corruption by SLFP and UNP politicians. This is the way to pay tribute to a good monk.

      All the colombo lawyers are crooked and so too is the so called Minister of Justice – the most crooked of them all! Now the nexus of corruption between Wijedasa Rajapaksha, Marapana and the Jarapassa brothers is evident. Wijedasa Rajapaksa must be forced to resign.

      It is now clear that he is the biggest fly in the ointment and preventing ALL corruption investigations against the crooks in the previous regime in league with the corrupt Attony General, who should have been fired long ago.
      This is the NEXUS of CORRUPTION to protect Mahinda Jarapassa and the dirty politicians who love their parliamentary privileges and the good life at the Diyawenna circus.

      For all the media hype, not a single corrupt politician from the Mahinda Jarapassa regime which stole billions of tax payers monies has been held accountable and convicted. All these investigations by the AG and the FCIU are sabotaged from within and by Wijedasa Rajapaksha from without. Even Sajin Vas Gunawardene who was put away for the Elections is now on overseas trips!

      Yes, true both Marapana & Wijedasa Rajapakse should be kicked out of Cabinet,
      they totally destroyed UNP GG image, & by keeping them in Govt. Ranil & My3 further erodes any confidence people have in this govt.

      Now this govt & it’s predecessor are equal in corruption.& absolutely no doubt in peoples mind

      Marapana would have made billions of rupees from Avant Guard. So to Wijedaas Rajapakshe who must resign as well.

      Transparency international rates Sri Lanka to have a very high risk of corruption in the defense sector. The nexus of corruption between politicians form both the SLFP and UNP with military businesses and financial crime must be exposed and investigated.

      Time to reduce defense spending by half and give that to Health and Education sectors.

      Military businesses is mission and mandate creep, bad for military discipline and leads to corruption. The military running national parks is the reason why all the trees are being cut down and tree density has been destroyed in the country.

    Not a word yet on this absurd situation from either the President or Prime Minister! Just goes to show what the morality quotient of these two individuals are.

    One wonders at the mindsets of our presumed leaders and why they are defending (by their inaction) Marapana and Wijedasa instead of either forcing them to resign or kicking them back to the Rajapakse fold.

    Hopefully Anura Kumara, Rajitha, Ranawaka and the leftists will succeed in turning the tide at today’s meeting and get Sirisena and Wickremasinghe to do the right thing.

      Aquinas – You are absolutely right. Anura Kumara, Rajitha & Champika
      will do the needful to oust the minister. Opposition Leader Mr. Sampanthan should give tactical support instead hiding behind MS/RW and take evasive action. Mr. Sumanthiran chief spokesperson of TNA should speak on the issue in parliament to express Tamil’s view om
      the matter. Mr. Hakkim of Muslim congress has already spoken against the action of the minister, in the Cabinet

      The PM showed very bad judgment in appointing him in the first place. He would have been very aware of the conflict of interest. The PM should be held responsible.

    In this unique country of ours, where the President nor his son knows what nepotism is; and a lawyer – Minister Marapana does not know what conflict of interest is; the brave work of the late Sobitha Thera to oust the Rajapaksa Mafia is being whittled away and whittled away and the realisation that the supplanted ‘Yahapalanaya’ government is nothing but a ‘yamapalanaya’ is also whittling away all hope from the citizenry.

    Fucked if I know what to do?????

    “Therefore we call upon the Minister to honorably resign from the post of Minister in-charge of Law and order without degrading Parliament itself.”

    Why is this haste man! I honestly ask you the communists, why is this haste?

    Didn’t Appe Janathipathi Mahata, the New King, said he is not going to tolerate the chatting and fire all of them?

    All are Sinhala Intellectual Comadina! Communist comrades and the Yahapalanaya crooks are one and the same.

    Ranil Mahata has said he is carrying the sin of the Old Royal government. What joke is that? He is the refused to leave the leadership of UNP and at the end handed over the King post to SLFP fifth time. Now he is crying of carrying the Old Royals sins with New Royals name!

    Is that what this fox said in the General Election? Did he asked the Modaya Voters to vote for him so that he can carry the sin of the old government? Did he lie that to clean the old sins he even will go ahead and close the port city. The truth is he carrying his sins. He is one refused to sign the ICC acord and put the country to this path. It is UNP’s Don Stephen started this patriotic way by disenfranchising the Tamils. It was Ranil who conducted the coup to take the power from old King, on the 8th morning of January and promised the old King that he undertake all the sins of protecting the Old from the his past sins catching him. If the uneducated, Pettah’ Malukaikaraya parliamentarian goons understand the effect of the statement of Ranil, they should have him impeached!

    Why this fox is carrying the sins of the lion instead of have him punished? The head is like that. Why the Tilak Matappaanai should not follow the suit?

    Wonder who’s running the country?….Marapone dealer is talking on behalf of Avante Garde crook in the parliament and claiming no irregularities in the Avant Garde action. Wijedasa Bribe taker is claiming as far as he is in-charge , he will not allow Gota to be arrested. Chairman of Anti narcotics board says he has been advised to continue as chairman by the Ranil in spite of MY3 appointing another joker former DIG Sirisena as chairman of the same board. TRC Ex Dir who was removed on charges of corruption by the government is appointed a ministry secretary by MY3 the following week. With all this happening a corrupt Attorney General playing ” PANDU” with the law of the country.No wonder Rev Sobitha got a heart attack after seeing all these deals by the politicians he helped to become leaders of the present Government…..

    How did he manage to say with a straight face that nothing was wrong when he even had privileged information.
    Based on another media this is one of the things found through the audit.

    “The most alarming discovery is the haul of 320 automatic assault rifles which had their serial numbers defaced in order to prevent the tracing of the original owner of the firearm in addition to the illegal weapons found aboard the now detained Avant Garde floating armoury.”

    Who is running our country? By and large LSSP-Majority, CP alternative group, JVP and other NGO outfits are that politically not the front that struggle for path of Democratic sustsnibility Capitalism.

    They are working towards more allied with Neo-Conseversity agenda aim on to be surrender that ours National sovereignty to vested interest of US and Indian hegemonies. Most of Trotskyist and anarchist leftist who are remain in so-called ‘regime changes’ are not that belongs to progressive and democratic alternatives forces ,they more or less allied with new reactionaries’ elements that exist side by side with Foreign power.

    Current context of politics of democracy and progressive forces has change, new class struggle in different phenomena.
    Well that is because working class leadership has been dominated by petty-bourgeoisies anarchist who an opposed task of capitalist development and their democracy.
    Indeed Petty bourgeois are fighting on individual positions and power of their personal gains. That is not the interest of majority masses of People .

    It has nothing to do with that task undertaken by working class on role play on bourgeois revolution by own class emancipations .

    Present trend of capitalism cannot develop under UNP-Ranil W… CBK and MS regime by US and Indian domination of political manipulating by CIA and RAW.

    We are in path of bourgeois revolution, ours revolution is stage of democratic era. We have to be with progressive and democratic forces in currently exist in the world that including BRICS countries and third world nations .

    Capital and Trading market has radically change and New Financial market in process of coming into being led by China.
    US, EU and Japan financial power house has lost their economic power. Revival of Western power is not possible. Currency dominations of US $, EU and Yen has lost power of purchasing and revival currency is no longer exist.

    This so-called Trotskyist and JVP -oriented anarchist of splinters groups far from understanding of Global Capitalism and their own country development of sustsnibility of Capitalism.

    They (JVPs, LSSPs CPs and NGO’s)are still want to serve for Old Imperialist that led by US hegemony by and large.

    Avonguard is not the only company slowly buying their way in to the RW government( mainly UNP ministers). Other more notorious companies are at it in a big way.

    Maropane, Vajira abeywardena & Wijedasa are in the access group pocket.They have received “gifts’ recently from bosses of this company.

    This is how they operate. The Access Group company lawyer is Mrs. Mohan Peiris. Yes this is the truth. When Mohan Pieris was Chief Justice his wife was the lawyer for rogue company access Group ! Imagine the fate of any one taking access to court. Mohan Pieris would have thrown a fit !The Rajapakses were also in the pocket of Access/china harbour combine.

    It is high time that this government which was voted into usher a honest society blacklist this kind of rogue company and commence a clean investigation of these tax dodgers and exchange control violators.

    This is the mother of all conflicts of interest. This crook is the minister of law and order, and he is giving legal advice to a party that is under investigation by the government. He should be kicked out immediately. He is fucking up Yahapalanaya big time.

    Thanks Harry Hatton for exposing all the strings

    Cats are out of the bag. RW and MY3 govt. is s…. the public. Blind public voted the govt. and not even 1 year has gone Started with CB. and more and more secrets are exposed.

    These are supposed to be educated professionals. MARA had 8 the grade passed guys resorting to corruption. Is there a way that the professional bodies is SL could cancel the membership of these people after a public announcement? In other countries members are subjected to severe punishment and no room for unethical practices are tolerated for the members. I guess we are still a third world country that is the difference.

    A separate minister to be in charge of “Law and Order” was quite unnecessary.
    Justice in any language/context, encompasses law and order.
    This portfolio was created by the earlier regime, merely accommodate a political lackey.

    Coul;d anyone speak out of a clean business that takes place anywhere in the World?
    That is business………
    If we don’t promote business, no jobs.
    No jobs leads to unrest.

    leave the businesses alone and quietly tell them to clean up instead killing them.
    Port city killed immediately. Whom did we antagonise Chine one of the Super Five member in the UN.
    It was even an insult to the Preside XI who visited SL for the innaugaration.
    For China loosing that invstment is like a drop in a bucket.

    Sonce the Yahapalanaya rhetoric against China, in April China pledged to invest $47b in Pakistan.
    How many Boeing Planed Chins ordered when he visited USA and also to participate in the building of railroad from LA to Las vegas…….
    Why did the Queen host the Mr. XI at the Buckinghan palace? Our monkey said that the Queen shhook his hand sans gloved. But he came empty handed.
    But did China offer UK, Pounds 21b to build aReactor in Somerset and receive a 35% share & how many jobs it was going to create?

    WHOM ARE OUR YAHAPALANAYA IDIOTS TRYING TO IMPRESS?
    aMERICA OR uk OR mODI’S iNDIA?

    OUR LOSS IS OTHERS GAIN. Have we missed the bus again while Kalavedda & Wijedasa are crossing swords to sue each other and someone else attmpting to grab AVANT GARDE (02) heads for Drug enforcements.

    OUR POLITICIANS HAVE SHOT OURSELVES IN THE FOOT ONCE AGAIN.
