Legitimacy Deficit Haunts Government 

By Jehan Perera

Jehan Perera

The country to which President Ranil Wickremesinghe returned after his international successes in the Americas remains in dire straits. In both Cuba and New York, the president made his mark at the podium holding his own with giants on the world stage. Addressing heads of state at the G77 Summit in Cuba, the president spoke of the significance of science, technology and innovation in shaping the future of developing nations. He referred to the new technological divide emerging in the 21st century, necessitating the adoption of digitalization and new technologies, such as Big Data, IoT, AI, Blockchain, Biotechnology and Genome Sequencing, to bridge the gap. He also reaffirmed Sri Lanka’s commitment to supporting the new Havana Declaration and called for the collective voice of G77 and China to be heard in international fora.

Addressing heads of state at the UN General Assembly, the president drew upon his experience in peacebuilding when he called for the expansion of the UN Security Council’s composition as essential for world peace. He also highlighted the reforms he initiated in the economic, financial, institutional and reconciliation fronts as being directed towards rebuilding trust and confidence between the people and the government and as laying the foundation for economic stabilization and recovery. However, the president faces formidable challenges in this regard. The country’s economy, which shrank by over 7 percent last year and by 11 percent in the first quarter of this year, continued its downward plunge with a further shrinkage by 3 percent in the second quarter. The much touted absence of shortages and queues is not due to the economic performance picking up but because people have less money to spend.

With inflation in the past year having halved the real income of people, and high taxation of those in the tax net further impoverishing those in the middle income and professional categories, they are leaving the country in droves leaving behind gaping holes in various sectors of crucial importance to the economy. But the tax reforms that have impacted on the middle and professional classes directly and the increased sales taxes that have impacted on the poor are still not covering the gaping hole in the country’s finances that need to be filled for IMF support to be forthcoming. Government revenue has seen a shortfall of Rs. 100 billion as compared to the revenue target agreed with the IMF. There is a clear need to utilize tax money in a more streamlined way without it being misallocated or pilfered on a large scale which is widely believed to be a continuing practice in the country.

Inequitable Burdens

The indications are that further economic hardships will need to be placed upon the people. The problem is that the government is placing the burden disproportionately on the poor and not on the rich. Dr Nishan de Mel who heads the Verite Research think tank that has been doing in-depth analyses of Sri Lanka’s encounter with the IMF disagrees with the government’s position that banks would collapse if the banking system had to bear some burden of domestic debt restructuring. He points out that this conclusion had been reached without any analysis. “All the other countries that restructured debt shifted part of burden debt restructuring on to the banking sector. There are ways of protecting banks during debt restructuring. The government has placed all the burden on the pension funds and says that the impact on these funds are limited. It also claims that banks will collapse if they are affected by domestic debt restructuring. So, which claim is true? Why can’t the banks share part of the burden?”

There is a general consensus that the burden of economic restructuring is falling disproportionately upon the poorer sections of society. Dr de Mel has also pointed out that the government has been privatising profits while socialising losses because of the lack of accountability. “When those in power work for the benefit of themselves and their friends, they ensure that a small group of people enjoy the benefits of growth or implement policies that benefit targeted groups. However, when things go wrong, for example, when we have to restructure domestic debt, those in power make sure that the people in general bear the losses. This is what we have seen in Sri Lanka.”  This view is also to be seen in a Civil Society Governance Diagnostic Report produced by a collective of civil society organisations and authored by Prof Arjuna Parakrama which states that “The current growing sense of economic injustice has been exacerbated by the fact that the architects of the economic crisis do not bear any part of the burden of its proposed reform, which has been, again, firmly thrust, without any public dialogue, on the victims of this very crisis.”

Making the situation more prone to instability is the fact that this inequitable burden sharing is being done by a government that has little political legitimacy. Barely a year and a half ago, those who are currently ministers in the government were on the run, hiding from the wrath of vast multitudes of people who were demanding that they be held to account for having bankrupted the country through their corrupt and venal deeds, whether real or imagined. All of those who are now ministers (with the exception of a handful who have crossed over from the opposition) were compelled to resign from their ministerial positions. They were legally reappointed by President Ranil Wickremesinghe after he was legally elected president by the votes of 134 parliamentarians. But a legitimacy deficit continues to haunt the government and makes it an insecure one though presently firmly ensconced in power. The way to gain legitimacy to bridge the trust deficit is to be fair and just in making decisions that impact upon all the people.

Undemocratic Laws

Unless remedial steps are taken the government’s current engagement with the IMF may be difficult to sustain. This is not only because the government is failing to meet the targets set by the IMF. There is also a lack of confidence about the IMF programme among the general population. A public opinion survey conducted by Verite Research has shown that about 45 percent of Sri Lankans believe the IMF will make things worse for the economy in the future. Only 28 percent of the population believes Sri Lanka’s ongoing programme with the IMF will make things better for Sri Lanka’s economy in the future. The mounting difficulties faced by people in coping with their economic circumstances can lead to protests and agitation campaigns. The logic of competitive electoral politics can also come into play with different political parties making their own promises to alleviate the economic hardships on the people even at the cost of the economic reform programme agreed with the IMF.

There appear to be trial balloons put out by government members that safeguarding the IMF programme may require a moratorium on elections. The government has shown itself willing to take this route ostensibly for the sake of the economy. Even before the agreement with the IMF, the government postponed local government elections that had been set for March of this year citing the need to focus on economic recovery rather than hold elections. Recently, MP Vajira Abeywardena, chairman of the UNP of which the president is the leader, has stated that the government would not be able to meet the economic needs of the people if funds were allocated through the 2024 Budget for the presidential election which is due in a year. The emergence of two controversial laws that can restrict freedom of expression and the ability to engage in public protest may need to be seen in this context.

The draft Anti-Terrorist Act which seeks to replace the Prevention of Terrorism Act is wider in scope and gives the government the power to arrest persons who are engaging in public protest or trade union action. Those who are charged as “intimidating the public or a section of the public” can be arrested under this law. The Online Safety bill has the potential to curtail the use of the internet for political communication purposes. It will establish a five-member commission, all of whom will be appointed by the president, and they will be tasked with determining the veracity of online content. The commission appointed by the President will be able to proscribe or suspend any social media account or online publication, and also recommend jail time for said offenses. The Bar Association has said that both these draft laws seriously impinge on the liberty and freedom of the people, will have a serious impact on democracy and the rule of law in the country and called for their withdrawal. If these two laws are passed by parliament, they will make it more difficult to challenge the government even when it is going on a wrong path. But with the economic situation continuing to get worse, and the suffering of vast masses of people increasing, repression through the use of law and the security forces will not be a sustainable option.

    Legitimacy Deficit Haunts Government .

    President is preaching legitimacy or lawfulness the world but when he visited foreign but cannot save his country preaching not practicing. His not practicing Respect for human rights is not social work; it is not merely an act of compassion. It is the first obligation of government and the source. He is not from the people so he will not solve them and he is from the parliament that why the health minister won besides inferior pharmacy products this is inform from the staff of health sector.

    Jehan Perera. You start by saying: “…… returned after international success in the Americas…..” How certain are you of his “International Success”? These so-called “International” communities are well aware and they too practice all these types of GALLANTY and SWEET talks that are always WRITTEN by the LACKYS employed to do that job of “Writing”. So do you judge this President’s “International Success” merely by listening to what others have written?

    I wonder how many would have taken these Gallanty and Heroic “Talks” that seriously? Behind the scenes, all those International Communities and “Bodies” have their own army of well-paid (not NGOs) but well “Informed” and “Capable” WISE MEN and WOMEN to make assessments of each country and the “Leaders” who are involved in Governance.

    So simply put, what do you think those “International Communities and Agencies, by now would have ASSESSED a man who has DENIED the basic right of Democracy of CHOOSING the peoples’ representation at all levels of Government (President, Legislative and Provincial levels) and keep on INTRODUCING some of the DRACONIAN Legislations with a SUBDUED majority vote in Parliament?

    That’s enough to put on your thinking cap.

      Douglas, you are right. A bill co-sponsored by twelve law makers, sent to U.S , Sec of State Blinken, holding Lanka accountable for violations of both international human rights law and international humanitarian law including torture, rape, desecration and other acts. See statement , dated September 19th for infor.

            Mallai, if you don’t mind please explain to me again about your thoughts on alleged involvement of Maulana and Pillayan in Easter. As you say it’s possible that Maulana doublecrossed both Pillayanan and government, Keeping in mind Pillayan knew Maulana well more than any politicians. Also Pillayan is alleged to have orchestrated killings of Pararajasingham and Raviraj. Pillayan him self admitted in parliament receiving cash and arms from Rajapaksa government. Maulana’s name never popped up until he himself admitted to arranging a meeting. Because the comments are closed elsewhere I’m addressing here.

        Jehan, did you notice the recent success of Ali Sabry. See article on DM “why is AS dragging bankrupt Lanka into Indo-Canada conflicts” (do not skip reading the comments) I wonder 1) Is this statement , official / Foreign Ministry or personal 2) Was this statement, written by his son currently studying in the Americas. ( as claimed by Ali, few days ago ) 3) Do you think Ali is actually screwing Rajapaksas, by making such statement, so that Canada will be offended / compelled to pursue, Mafia family ??? 3) when Ranil is maintaining silence and other countries treading cautiously , why is Ali firing from rear end ??? 4) What could have otherwise gone unnoticed is now promptly picked by the Indian Media, for their own propaganda.

    President Ranil Wickremesinghe returned after his international successes in the Americas

    Jehan PhD has described the Langkang’s “Alexander the great ” returning home after his world tour more picturesquely than when King Dutugemenu returned to Bandaranaike International AirPort from the Middle East, in May 2009, after the unbelievable extent of Genocide/ War crime committed. While the Great Hero the Evil’s fame was being established in the Americas, a letter to US Secretary Antony Blinken was being drafted and circulated in the American congress by Congressperson Summer Lee :
    https://tamilwin.com/article/sri-lanka-should-brought-to-international-court-1695731840

    Copies of this are being circulated in Colombo Media, today.

    It is very smallness for Jehan PhD to trying to portray of another Sinhala Intellectual of his class as international Statesman and opening a Pandora box as his achievements in the international arena, where, in reality, he could not lift his head and look at the audience in the gallery because of the shames the country has been endured by their actions. All he did in the Americas was demand Royalty for the Human Refugees export he and his SLFP colleagues were sending to the Western Countries.

    This word legitimacy is being thrown about haphazardly.
    Is Ranil an illegitimate child, politician, or President. None of it.
    Illegitimate is when not authorized by the law; when not in accordance with standards.
    Our standards are so low, there is no chance of breaching them!
    .
    Injustice, I agree. But, where do I start to broach that subject.
    Justice is alien to our culture!

    It’s called “financial repression” and was predicted …… well in advance ………. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Avvv7c8xEok …. 15:57 ….. “will force banks and pension-funds to buy large amounts of government debt”

      Nimal. Hey,…great…thanks! Question is, why are we, a poor country, attempting to inch up to US, China, Japan etc. to suffer the same fate? Can you imagine what building up robots are going to do to us? We could have stayed nice and cozy and not have had those roads and stadiums and fast cars built for zero productivity and zero potential productivity. Should have gone socialist, and then and then only come out to assess the world situation for our benefit after we had gained our confidence. We had enough money from Middle East Workers, tourism, tea, rubber, and coconuts for that. We should have built up our paddy-fields, other produce, and local housing and lifestyles.

        So now Ranil is attempting to produce a New World Financial Order according to him. Ohhh, as usual they will applaud his operatorial skills like they did his uncle JR, ignore us, and do their own thing. My God, when they have inverted yield curves and risk assets to deal with, they are not going to sully their intense and focused concentration on our puny attempts to change them for our benefit. They’d give us the IMF loans to get rid of us and then torment us. Other world leaders in these big shot countries merely grunt to each other and retain their complex conceptual thoughts. But our leaders like to show off their speech skills. Better to grunt and keep the brain-work inside.

          “So now Ranil is attempting to produce a New World Financial Order according to him.” Grandma, there is saying Tamils, “The dancer who lacks skills blame the stage for her fault.”
          The Lankan dancers do not get to stage to dance and get applause, but perform hard-core, try to display them and loot from the spectators. You can read an abundance in Jehan PhD’s eyes about what kind of dance Evil is performing on the stage. If an honest dancer gets to stage, the financial structure of the country is much more than enough for a variety of shows and very many stages. See Bangladesh, Vietnam……….The Langkang show is only about the crooks and their salesmen!

    Blowing your own trumpet is the easiest thing to do. Did Ranil Speak about his decision to build a mega cabinet and a larger State Minister group? Did he talk about him appointing all the MPs who were kicked out of the Parliament by the voters ruling over the Ministers as the Presidential advisors? Did he speak about all the corruption of the Health Minister and sweeping them under the carpet? Did he talk about how the illegal police killings under his rule are happening when suspects are under police custody? Did he mention that he has only paved the way and is paving the way to borrow more and nothing else to date, not even to show a plan for how the loans will be repaid if the restructuring is agreed by the lenders? NO! So where is the legitimacy of Ranil?

    The health mininister and inferior pharmaceuticals is extremely likely because the health minister and his compatriots colleagues in the loop were all on kick backs swindling and resulting in the negative health consequences to their own sinhala constituency. Some sinhala politician and like others went overseas for medical treatment obviously paid for by looting the sinhala land treasury and its peoples.

    Even if Pirbakaran had won the sinhalas would not be in this parlous national state that exports their women for torture (like having to eat nails) to the ME.

    In my grandfather’s time and even now Eelam Tamils exported mainly professionals.

    Now sinhala land glorifies that sinhalas are working as servants in chinese and other household in Singapore and Malaysia too.

    My view is that very soon sinhalas will be working as servants in china chinese controlled sinhala land’s china chinese house holds and then maybe even the concept of sinasisation may come to sinhala land (Weigher muslim men jailed and han chinese men government mandatorily sleeping in their wifes beds as part of making them china chinese.)

    This praise for Ranil W. is touching. A philosopher-statesman of international ranking spending his poor country’s money on various overseas jaunts with idiot Ali Sabry and family in tow is hardly inspiring for those who have to think of how to feed their families their next meal. This writer should stop writing such drivel. I have not come across any references to our President in the international press. We know that RW is there to warm the seat for the Rajapakses and that he is not likely to get us out of the mess we are in. On thing is true that the ground is being prepared to ensure that Ranil W stays on and elections are not held. This will only mean further repression and possible violence. We can only hope it does not happen. We are in for a rough time.

    JP,

    Well written. Yes, Ranil has great plans for the future- that is sure; high oratorial skills and all that (except he didn’t go to elocution school like his uncle JR…it’s a ploy to look dumb so people will feel sorry for him and listen).

    His main aim is to concentrate the money of the hardworking-suffering-Lankan-worker to the top 0.1% to achieve his aims. Therefore, Rajapaksas and their ambassadors are not an immorality for him. But he is trying to increase the percentage to 1% by encouraging other Lankan businessmen to grab even more money. They are of great conviction that one day – yes, someday, – money will be able to flow down to the Motherland and not drip as in the present moment. That’s how they exonerate themselves. Working the people’s money for the people at the present time is a huge demeaning concept for them. In the meantime, they are reveling in the wealth of the Motherland.

      IMF would have loved this, but now they are getting a bad name and so are holding back as they will lose out on other countries. Game plan over! Next, Camaron in Britain is encouraging Port City as another place to consolidate global wealth (probably another idea presented to the IMF). Port City might work for some time for the rich, but will soon grind to a halt. Value of money would change its meaning very soon. In the meantime, Lankan and other workers world over will remain mired in poverty and suffering.

      Thank God Sri Lanka has a robust professional and Lankan-worker sector that rebels against such things- the Neo-Aragalaya! Armed forces should have kicked out Ranil and Rajapaksas long ago except that they have been bought.

      ps. Places like Port City will be soon obsolete . They belonged to a time when old European aristocracy needed places to stash their wealth when communism and greater democratic/socialized capitalism took over the world. But our Lanka elite are still in love with the idea.

    ” repression through the use of law and the security forces will not be a sustainable option.”
    RW was able to get on to the throne with the blessings of Rajapaksas and many many thieves. We can not understand why the 2022 Aragalaya failed miserably in not getting their ambition of putting our Mother Lanka on the right PATH. Aragalaya movement celebrated the multi cultural multi Ethnic/religious nature of our country. The Sinhala Buddhist Fundamentalists whipping up racial religious HATREDS has led us to the present status.We are becoming like NorthKorea/Myanmar where hard working people are suppressed.

    Will you agree with me that the Uncle JR and Nephew are responsible for the 1977 & 1983 killings of the SL Tamils.
    Targeting the minorities is the ROOT CAUSE of the country’s current plight.
    The money spent on a war that could have been sorted by negotiations was wasted money that could have been used in improvements to transport healthcare and Education.
    Killing of the Political prisoners in the Welikada prison was a crime against humanity. Their curse + other innocent civilians killings will not not allow the country to thrive

    Chiv,
    You now accept Moulana could be a double agent, but trying to turn out to be die hard lawyer to prove Pillaiyan is a murderer, Moulana is Mr. Clean White man, because I never had come to know any crimes of Moulana. Very intelligent way of debating!
    First, I don’t want to take Moulana crook seriously and give Channel -4 Disposal priority to their Killing Field. This is the last comment for you on that- so, you are free to be with your opinion, same as me. I do not want to work with those (in the media) working on Pillaiyan for an International crime Investigation to distract and provide escape for Government from its Genocide/War Crime investigation. Be assured, until always are closed, I will be working to bring a Genocide/War crime on Royals. After all, Channel-4 has already accepted doubt on Maulana witnessing, but they never backtracked like that on Killing Fields. Tamils’ need is solution; for that Genocide/War Crime has to brought out to the world arena; Pillaiyan’s murders need not be given same importance other than the fact that he did those with Old Rowdy Royals, not alone. That is why Aanuwas never investigated them properly. So Pillaiyan’s crimes will be covered when the War Crime/ Genocide investigation take place.

    When Pillaiyan was carrying out his murders, facing police, on those occasions Moulana was with him translating him English and Sinhala. During those days Moulana was with Pillaiyan, yet I did not know those days Pillaiyan had a Muslim Secretary, and that person is a Harishchandra. and his hands were clean from all those crimes TVMP committed. Those all were only fairy tales for me, sorry man! Thanks to that you have come to the position that Moulana could be a double agent. The punishment in most countries for double agents is death, except in few highly advanced democracies, where they get life time. So, Moulana is entitled to get the death penalty by the hands of the Royals. He should go back to Langkang and accept it like a corrected, born-again gentleman, as he claims. The sad part is that the Slap Party government doesn’t want Moulana back there, so they have already declared that INTERPOL no longer accepts their requests to arrest its criminals. You only suspect that Moulana is a double agent, but I have been suspecting he is on a government mission in Switzerland, because the excuse he is citing to claim refugee status is such a lame one.

    Some countries have agreed to accept refugees because of the mistake Canada and America did for Jews at the start of the WWII. They turned back the Jewish refugee ships to Germany. So, there is a convention named Geneva. That program is only for political refugees, not for criminals. Moulana had said that he ran out of the country because of a financial fraud (If that is true and he was not sent by Royals to Switzerland). In that case, as per international agreements, Swiss has to hand over him to Langkang, to be investigated for that fraud. It is irrelevant whether you and I did know that crime was committed long ago or yesterday, but his implication on that is rendering him not suitable for political refugee status.
    Everybody knows what TVMP is. You are trying to say Moulana is clean because I do not know any of his crimes, but of Pillaiyan you say though I know his murders, but I am refusing to accept that. I don’t understand why Moulana, clean and well bread gentleman, pundit in three languages, magically changing English and Sinhala in to Tamil and vice versa, he did know up to Hitler King in government, but without trying for a good job at Government press, the mega Organization, started to work as a secretary to Pillaiyan, the buffalo calf murderer?

    Hezbollah, who challenged to make Tamil blood to flow in North East Streets, saying that Moulana knows Pillaiyan well, so he must be telling the truth about Pillaiyan, so an International Inquiry has to be carried out based on Moulana’s words. That kind anti-Tamil Hezbollah, threatened Evil with OIC’s sanctions if he was investigated for his participation on 4/21. But now he wants Pillaiyan to be investigated! So, I don’t want to be one of those misguided elements, who are calling for investigation on Pillaiyan murders and thus want to let Hezbollah, Old Rowdy Royal Family, Evil and other 10,000 members know of 4/21 before it happened. What A joke!
    Second, you need to understand that Moulana, Pillaiyan, Aanduwa (UNP-SLFP or on the other dimension Muslim-Sinhalese) are one unit. Please don’t fool yourself that Pillaiyan is the only Murderer, but Moulana is clean. As a matter of fact, when Tamils did a crime, the tricky Muslim spies work with the Aanduwa to bring it that to light and earned name; Now the wind in on the opposite direction; there is no demand or quote for Muslim spies; now Pillaiyan is protected by Government so even Channel – 4 said that Moulana’s words are not dependable, so they don’t have any proves for their video. Do you still want Pillaiyan investigated with Moulana’s words? Why?

    But sadly, you are insisting that Moulana is correct. I have seen you copy and repeat what is appearing in the Colombo media. Even after Channel-4 called it a quit, you think Moulana is a good witness for Pillaiyan’s murders because Colombo Media doesn’t want to call it a quit, because Pillaiyan is a Tamil. Why doesn’t the Colombo Media want to call for an International Investigation for the Sinhala Buddhist Royals murders? Say that Moulana honestly knows only about Pillaiyan’s murders, (But in his statement he has said that he knows a lot about all that happened in the past few years. That part I believe because as a tricky, multi front spy, he has possibly collected a lot of info about all political crooks. Now he wants to benefit from that knowledge) then why are they not calling the IC to have Shani and the other 30 CIDs, who were originally investigating the 4/21, to be freed so they can do better, more reliable info on many other murders than Moulana?
    Moulana put forward a demand that he wants to appear only in front of ICC. Two things, 1), I wonder why and to whom he directs this demand. 2).The other if ICC picks up this message would they relent to this blackmailing of Moulana?

    Then, did Moulana maintain his demand? No. As Pillaiyan said, he seemed too desperate to get his asylum approved so, he appeared in front of UNHRC siting’s side meeting but refused to be open to the media. What do you call this drama, then? Why is this? What is the motive behind such a valiant, vigorous demand to have an International Investigation on a common criminal? Again, I have no idea, but I saw your statement welcoming this move. The deficiency Moulana having is he has no idea about who is ICC, who is UNHRC, who conduct the private meetings he appeared, what is a terrorist act, what kind of crime is a murder; what is genocide/war crimes, how immoral a double agent is,….. It looks like he is just dancing for some conductors directing him from Langkang, so nobody can predict how this may end. Do you know how he got introduced to Channel – 4? After sending him to Switzerland, did somebody from Langkang spread a net for Channel – 4 to get caught into this?
    In the event Moulana cites that the government is guilty, Pillaiyan stopped Moulana coming into the meeting. That renders Moulana not a witness of what happened inside. We don’t know if Salley told a lie to Pillaiyan of what happened inside or if Moulana is lying as Salley said.

    There are no witnesses to any of these lies. You like to show your faith in Maulana’s honesty. So, you want Pillaiyan to voluntarily go to prison. I don’t know who is doing what, then how do you expect me to agree with you? Maulana made secret negotiations with Salley outside their meeting and now that is the only evidence that the government planned this 4/21. Salley revealed some secrets to Maulana that Pillaiyan barred him from coming to know, as per Moulana. The word of Moulana indicates Moulana was spying on Pillaiyan activities and didn’t faithfully work for him. But your words suggest that you cannot disbelieve Moulana at any event, but only tell 100% truth. By that line, Moulana reveals that Salley was more to him those days than Pillaiyan to him and boasts that to Salley he was more wanted, so Salley ignored Pillaiyan and revealed what happened in the meeting to Moulana. Doesn’t it sound to you, actually it was Salley and Moulana lured to the meeting and made Pillaiyan feel that he was conducting the meeting?
    The truth is Moulana worked for the government on Pillaiyan, then translated government Sinhala English matters to Pillaiyan. Considering Sally’s higher friendship with Moulana and the gravity of the Government to make anybody do anything, it was Moulana who was handling Pillaiyan for Aanduwa.

    Take it or leave it, I boast to myself, pls Tell Moulana to talk to me, I don’t need the 4th floor torture chamber, but will break Moulana within 5 minutes. The idiot is so open in his lies. Isn’t that he knows his defects, so he is refusing to appear anywhere else other than ICC?
    If the Media has been correct so far, Moulana has not presented a case for him for asylum. Financial frauds are crimes and the Swiss government is obligated to hand him over to Langkang, the place where the financial fraud took place. Interpol has nothing to do here unless Swiss, where he is looking for asylum, or Langkang asking to bring him back to the country where he committed financial fraud. It is apparent Appe Aanduwa said recently that they cannot ask Interpol to bring criminals back home, because Langkang is blacklisted by Interpol. But the true reason is because Moulana is pretending like he is talking against his government and he was a secret agent during the war, so INTERPOL will not take Moulana back to Langkang, as his automatic sentence in that case is Death. So now it appears that Appe Aanduwa sent Maulana to Switzerland so only Pillaiyan can be framed as the organizer of 4/21 and there is no proof for Aanduwa being involved in that.

    If Pillaiyan refuses to confess organizing 4/21 as Moulana and Aanduwa wants, he will be prosecuted in Langkang for Tamil MPs’ murders, with the witnessing of the doubler Moulana. Pillaiyan is a LTTE operative expelled for his actions against the LTTE. LTTE was also accused of Murdering Tamil MPs, but I never saw you talking about that, but talking about Pillaiyan’s murders. Karuna and Deva all are gun wielding murderers. You want them to escape, because you believe that angel witness Moulana has not talked about their Murders? Are you sure Pillaiyan never talked to Moulana about their crimes of his partners, in many of them Pillaiyan was a partner? Why? There is no proof anywhere that CID Salley told Moulana that he had asked Pillaiyan that insecurity had to be created to bring Hitler to power. Period. That is a pure concoction of Moulana. The true black hole that you cannot see even in the Milky Way is why Saharan offered to abolish him and his team, and by that, with all evidence, Saharan was aware that the Royal Rowdies would benefit in the coming election. Nobody in the world would believe that the buffalo calf Pillaiyan or outright liar Moulana has such a talent to maneuver such a colossal change in the minds of those Jihadies.

    That should have been directly exorcized into Saharan by one of the Royal Rowdy strategist persons who are able to pull so many repeated election victories for Royals, without they giving any benefits to Modayas or else by one of the Muslim Ministers who were so obligated to Royals, convinced Saharan to die for Royals. There are some Ex Muslim-Ministers, who showed dead opposition for them to be investigated by PCOI, now convulsing hard to make Pillaiyan investigated based on Moulana’s lies. Can you explain that behavior?
    Have you come across any news piece saying that Saharan was very close with Pillaiyan, more than with Moulana? At the board meeting (or call it as the democratic political meeting took place in an unknown place in Batti,) Pillaiyan proposed that insecurity had to be created to seat Hitler in power, so all the Saharan’s Parliamentarians voted for that proposal, is that right? You know it was many times accused of LTTE. They suspected & punished many internal people for opening some of their secrets to the enemy. Then, can you explain to me, how these three Pillaiyan, Salley and Moulana started to fall in love on the first sight and recruiting them to commit murders and suicide for them, but they succeeded, still LTTE which so jealously guarded its secrets failed?

    I tell you, Moulana was not really close to Pillaiyan, or Pillaiyan did not allow him to do his jobs.
    Is that why now all are claiming that NTJ was a leaderless organization so Pillaiyan and Sally were able to push around its members as they wished? Is that because Pillaiyan and Saharan’s Parliamentarians didn’t need Sinhala -English Translation, so Pillaiyan asked Moulana not to come to participate in that meeting? Or do the Sinhala CID Salley speak all three languages. Pillaiyan didn’t like Moulana knowing the plot that Salley was about to describe in that secret meeting, but Salley had more confidence in Moulana, so told Maulana all about it? So is that Salley, the government spy, knows better of Moulana than the party president Pillaiyan.
    I can write a volume of these jugglery things they talk about, but none of their talks and actions do put together for my understanding.
