Mad King Nandasena Arrests Man For “Organizing” Honking Protest At Chinese Defence Minister’s Motorcade

In another sign of President Nandasena Rajapaksa’s growing insecurity complex, the 31 year old identified as being the organizer of the honking protest during a road closure for a VVIP traffic movement on Tuesday (27) night has been arrested by the police.

He was arrested on charges of unlawful assembly and obstructing the duties of police officers, Police Spokesman Ajith Rohana said. The arrested man would be produced before the courts and charged under the Penal Code, he added. The police spokesman claimed that under the terms of the Vienna Convention, Sri Lanka had to provide maximum security to envoys such as the Chinese Defence Minister.

“The Chinese Defence Minister is a diplomat and a minister of one of the superpowers in the world,” Ajith Rohana told local broadcasters.

The honking protest took place when the motorcade of the Chinese Defence Minister was passing through Colombo 07 on Tuesday night.

The arrested “organizer” of the spontaneous act of resistance, repeatedly told police officers that he had voted for President Gotabaya Rajapaksa. “Is this what we voted for?” he kept asking the cops.

There is no evidence on the video that went viral for two days that the arrested man was obstructing the police in any way. The video shows him clearly urging other motorists also stalled because of the VVIP movement to honk in a display of displeasure.

The opposition United National Party (UNP) reacted swiftly to the news and demanded that the Government explain the reason behind the arrest.

“This arrest has demonstrated this Government’s insecurity and inability to tolerate any form of public opposition,” the UNP said in a statement released soon after reports surfaced of the arrest.

“We urge the authorities to ensure that the freedom of speech and freedom of expression is upheld,” the UNP statement said.

The UNP statement also recalled Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa’s comment in May 2019. Then Oppisition Leader Mahinda Rajapaksa reacted to a similar honking protest against the Yahapalanaya administration during a road closure soon after the Easter Sunday bombings, saying “the displeasure shown by the public against the closure of roads for VIP vehicular movements by unceasingly sounding the horn were a reaction to the Government’s policies.”

The UNP statement said that on that occasion, “the then UNP led Government did not resort to any form of legal action to quell public anger.”

“While recognising that the security of visiting foreign dignitaries cannot be compromised, there appeared to have been no threat to the VIP or any fellow citizens,” the UNP statement added.

There was no immediate reaction from the main opposition Samagi Jana Balawegaya to the latest crackdown on free expression and peaceful protest by the Nandasena Rajapaksa regime.

      The problem is not with dictators ………. but with Lankans – especially the Sinhala-Buddhists.

      The bloody Sinhala-Buddhists are useless and incompetent is any form …………… even in the form of dictators!

      Ol’ Gota may be a Malay Muslim ……. but he has played being a Sinhala-Buddhist for far too long …….. now it has taken over his psyche.

      Good ol’ Augusto Pinochet was a brutal dictator, a competent one, who herded dissenters into soccer stadiums, tortured, and “disappeared” them. But go to Chile and see the development he has achieved with the “Chicago Boys (trained in the Department of Economics of the University of Chicago under Milton Friedman and Arnold Harberger.)” It’s one of the most developed countries in Latin America …….. at once noticeable when you cross the border from Bolivia.

      Those economists knew what they were doing …….. we don’t have a single economist of their calibre …… perhaps Lester comes close but not close enough.

        Now, they are so “modern” they don’t arrest protesters ………. every Friday is a protest day ……. mainly by school kids ……. it’s sort of a ritualized play/theatre ……… they go through every Friday.


        Lester or EE should slip in a copy of Friedman’s “Free to Choose” on Gota’s bedside table when they bring him his morning coffee. ……… if not, Gota thinks packing shelves in 7-Eleven, Burbank has taught him everything he ought to know about economics.

        Poor Lester doesn’t have the heart to tell Gota he is not Maynard Keynes and wound his vanity.

        So, 22 million have to tighten their belts and suffer ……… for one man’s foolish pride ………

        At times I wonder, what would Lanka be if there were no Lankans.

          “did not launch the terrorist campaign”

          There are different ways of looking at the same thang ……. Native would say “Frame of Reference,” Nathan would say “Frame of Mind.” ……. Even that can’t be agreed upon ……

          Perhaps they would have not started a revolt if we didn’t get them to pay for our own insecurities …… dragged out and burnt a few of them ………. discarded their language to the dustbin ……. slap on a haphazard Standardization after the places in universities were allocated ……. to deny the places their students had already gained…….. made them into second-class citizens in their own country.

          Put yourself in their place and see ……… just imagine if they had done all that to us …….. I’m sure a great Sinhala hero like you wouldn’t have taken it lying down …….. you would’ve given s good fight with your pen hiding under your bed.

Good ol’ Gota isn’t the perfect specimen, so when he wants to create the pure Sinhala race, I’ll volunteer and make sure I’m at the front of the queue …….. ahead of Native, OC, SM, SJ, Nathan, Ganasara, ……….

          At some stage of our lives we have to stop being children, become adults and take responsibility for our actions. ……….. Google for Sartre’s ideas on “Bad Faith.” …. If not ask Native for some tuition ……….

          No country on earth …….. not Buddha, not Christ, not Vishnu, not Allah, not Marx ……… or anyone living or dead ……. forced us to take high interest (even above commercial rates) and build unmitigated crap in Hambanthota which have 0 commercial value/viability.

          Well, less than 0 (minus income) when you take into account the cost of upkeep.

          Better still …….. who forced us to get commercial flights to take off from Katunayake and land in Mattala five minutes later?

          Mr Mahindapala, even at this late stage, it’s not too late to become an adult and take responsibility …….. if not you’ll die a child …….. and that would be a real tragedy.

    If I were there, I too would have no choice but to animate those motorists and all. However, if 31 year old was doing an illegal act, traffic policists in their duties could arrest him on the spot. But police men did not react. Would the govt take action against traffic police officers that stayed mum not reacting accordingly ? I have no doubt, even POLICE is against the current rulers and they are all fed up of bitch s sons authoritarian rule.

    And this would not be silent from this act. ENtire world is watching. Presdient should be sent to MONTISOORI lessions if the nation to be saved in next days. We attacked POLONNARUWE donkey for his repeated silly acts, but current double-pakshes are breaking all records made by SORRYSENA. Good riddance to all, that line up to vote for CRIMINALS.

    In the middle east, public anger towards the ruling regimes started the Arab Spring, which created chaos & anarchy, while protests in Hong Kong & Myanmar were ruthlessly cracked down. In South America, the oppressive & corrupt regimes were brought down by public anger at the ballots, only to be replaced by regimes no better by the same public. In SL, the most obvious scenario would be Myanmar / Hong Kong style. The Chinese, with their expertise in such matters, are there to give a helping hand if needed.

      Srilanken style of anger displaying will come to practice next days.. sooner than later by- attacking anyone wearing the name – Rajapakshe in the near future.

      I have watched videos being aired from MIDDLE EAST, KOREA, ITALY and several other countries in Europe…. most of them are totally against their former weerayas.
      .
      Most of srilanken skilled workers would not respect Rajapakshes anymore. Srilanken struggle today is with nobody else but Rajapakshes and their criminal political supporters. I wonder if NAMAL BABY would be able to stay live in the days to come. Almost everyone starts hating the criminal family. Mahinda Rajaakshes last days will be almost like that of Gadafi: Gotabaya s will become even worst. Wait and see, how they will ever make it…. ‘

      Now it is realizing that nobody else, but a SRILANKEN CID personnel too were behind EASTER sunday bombing. So who is behind that CID men ? Gotabaya ? Mahinda Rajapakshe ? Sirisena was well aware of the plan – before he left for THAILAND or SINGAPORE shortly before easter April 2019.

    Herr Nandasena is getting nuttier by the day. In his little mind he is an autocrat who will make petty arrests, just to cover his crimes, blunders, and failures. Autocrats like to punish anyone who stands up to him, and make them the example to others.

    Sri Lanka is on a downward spiral, and no one can do anything. All this autocratic rule, and Nutty Nanda still can’t handle the pandemic, the economy, and we are pariahs in the eyes of the world.

    All this happens because for 25 years leader of the UNP was this rascal Ranil, who behind his bogus arrogance, half-baked knowledge, is actually a devious rogue. Because he was so bad, the people had to vote Rajapakses .This time the UNP did not get a single seat. !

    Last 5 years finally undid the rascal. Where is his arrogance now ? Where is his shapely partner in crime Mahendran ? Where are all the gays now ?

    When it came to appointing a successor in the UNP Ranil appointed not any loyal follower or a proven politician , but his useless nephew Ruwan Wijewardena !

    When questioned why , he said he did not appoint Ruwan but the UNP working committee ( which he appoints ) appointed Ruwan, because the committee thought him the best successor.

    Did Mahinda appoint Namal Rajapakse as organizer for Hambantota or did Mahinda appoint Gotabaya as presidential candidade ? No, they were all appointed by the PA Central committee !

    Ranil, who are you fooling ?

    We may deviate from the truth in always indulging in the habit of “Nandasena bashing” merely to titillate ourselves. I am always reminded of the folly that was committed in laying the net to catch the culprits of the 1966 “lavatory coup”. Had this been properly carried out the prime mover Dr. Tissa alias Rohana Wijeweera would have been apprehended and the population would have been saved from the loss of lives both in the 1971 and 1988 unrests in the country. True! The honking was essentially some anger vented at the government and they did not know that a foreign VIP was passing by. The Police too did not care two hoots for the din created and they carried on with their duties. It is clear to me that the chap who was entrusted with the well being of the VIP got the news later and he shook the Police top brass. The rest followed. Interestingly the accused was granted bail for non-bailable charges and he publicly apologized for his action. Note that both the Prez and the PM ditched the traditional “Ayubowan” for a “show of fists” to greet. Lanka is fast becoming an SAR of China.
