Mahinda Now Says Foreign Funded NGOs Behind Yoshitha’s Arrest

Former President Mahinda Rajapaksa today claimed that several foreign funded NGOs were behind the arrest of his second son, Yoshitha, along with several others.

In a statement issued to commemorate the national independence day of Sri Lanka that falls tomorrow, Rajapaksa said; “It was reported in the press that the leaders of several foreign funded NGOs had met leaders of the present government and insisted on the arrest of members of my government on corruption charges before the 4th of February this year. It is not surprising that such agents of foreign powers would see some symbolic value in jailing members of a government that won the war against terrorism before Independence Day. My son Yoshitha, my Press Secretary Rohan Welivita, Nishantha Ranatunga and two directors of the CSN TV Channel Ravinath Fernando and Kavishan Dissanayake have been arrested under an omnibus provision in the Criminal Procedure Code enabling the police to arrest individuals to conduct investigations.”

He further noted that as Sri Lanka marks the 68th year of independence from foreign powers, “I wish to pledge before the people of Sri Lanka that even if my entire family and I myself am imprisoned, I will not deviate from the path of reasserting our national independence, ensuring the territorial integrity of our motherland, restarting the stalled process of economic development and re-establishing our national self respect.”

While elaborating on the war that was won in May 2009 against the separatists, Rajapaksa noted that due to the actions of certain conspiratorial forces, even this respite was short-lived.

“Since 8 January 2015, we are once again being used by foreign powers for their purposes. The separatists who could not achieve their aims after nearly four decades of terrorism, now hope to achieve their aim with the help of these foreign powers. Since last year there has been an unending procession of foreign dignitaries visiting their latest ‘conquest’. Due to the influence of these foreign powers, dangerous LTTE detainees have been released and members of the armed forces have been arrested under the Prevention of Terrorism Act. Furthermore, plans are afoot to prosecute our war heroes for war crimes,” he said in the statement.

    Looks like Wimalawathie has coached him well. These are all boru dramas created and uttered by Wimalawathie who is now the puppet master. Our war heroes will never be punished for what they did in battle. Unfortunately there are scoundrels in the military put their by Goebells (GR) to carry out mass murder of Tamil detainees, Murder and assault of media personalities, Murder of political opponents, and the murder of innocent civilians caught in the cross fire of illegally ordered military crackdowns on civilian protest. All these scoundrels masquerading as war heroes must be purged and punished. This liar thinks he can go to the defence of these minions put there by himself and his brother while fooling people about prosecuting war heroes. The entire family needs to be locked up forever. NO politician in the history of Sri Lanka ever committed so much violence and destruction upon this nation. NO politicians sons went berserk robbing and pillaging from the state as his kids have done. No politicians son ever subjugated an entire wing of the military i.e. the navy to be his lackeys to be barked orders to even up to the commander.

      Why not to check himself that them being failed to prove where those 2.3millions of Dollars came from ? that was the cause him to be arrested…

      if the young man was able to share them, where they came from – nothing would have been the case.

      Every problem is connectd with reasonble cause- causality can bring some to sense – as one coming from natural science background – just to add NGOs may be behind the issues, or astrology may be not well etc are just for whom that cant see it right.

        If we are down with common cold, we have to take the proper medicine – else we cant recover – say instead would go after astrology.. likewise, ursachenkämpfen – fighting to find the causations – can help these virulent persons.

        NGOS are every where. Even under his regime, there were NGOs that worked in different areas. That is the world s freedom- Many work for the good rather than to bad – if they di dnot report accordingly – the deterioration of human rights under Rajaakshe men, the message would not have outreached to entire world as did. So, not only NGOs, but also lanken civil society group including nation GOLDEN SOBITHA Thero et al sacrificed their energies.

        This man should finally learn to know that we cant cheat people for the entire life. Cheating period was restrict just for 1 decade that was enough.

      As Buddhadasa made it very clear, Wiamalawathie is now like crabs in hot water. Anytime soon, cops could come to knock their door to arrest the bugger NEXT. Alone to have made public derogatory speeches against Prez Sirisena – should be the reason to put the man in jail… we need rigorous law enfrocement the kind of Wimalawathie to be marginalized from lanken political world.

      The day I will go on partying in Zurich streets – to be honest.
      I hate these men with racial disposition.

      Wera @,

      thanks for your sensible thoughts. I believe yours are far better than of the self-proclaimed analyst – Dayan Rajapakshe aka Dayan Jayathilaka

      You are dead right. But even today – masses are still behind him.

      Why ?

      Is that because srilnakens (majority gawky, gullible, vulnerable folks) consider no values in general – or are they born stupid people as other folks ?

      Who on the earth thought – Wimal buruwanse to gain that much of votes in the most educated Province of the nation (Western Province)?

    It’s amazing really reading the statements coming from the Rajapakses these days. Facebook has now become the darling of Gotabaya and he is on a journey to end the current “tyrant” regime. Just perplexed how much they are removed from reality. What would Mahinda and his erstwhile brothers think of blowing away their opportunities?

    What kind of parents to bring utterly spoilt brats? What kind of a mother Mdm Shiranthi has been and now blaming everyone else for their predicament will only earn the wrath of people.

      Utterly spoil brat did attack(DUMB MUTT SHOING TO THE WHOLE WORLD THAT HE IS A SRINKY BRAT) the ruby refree who has no choice but to do nothing since the spoil brat was with the government provided security (HIS HENCHMEN). This enough for our idiot sri lankans to know how rude and how the family did not respect the rule of LAW!

    Bodhipala Sirsena’s Independence day address is like Sunday Sil Monday Gal..

    He says our Soldiers made great sacrifices to make him the Yahapalana President .

    And Sira is meeting Bedouin Prince next week to give White Judges Visas to send our brave Commanders to Bogambara.

    Sooner the Joint Opposition forms a party , better it is for the great majority of the inhabitant population who are our Dalits.

    THEN WHAT DO YOU SAY WHEN GENERAL FONSEKA WAS DRAGGED HUMILIATED AND ARRESTED AFTER HE WAS ONE OF THE ARCHITECTS IN WINNING THE WAR. SHIRANI BANDARANAYAKE WAS REMOVED FROM HER POST WHEN SHE TURNED AGAINST RAJAPAKSE. THE KATUNAYAKE SHHOTING OF AN IINOCENT WORKER NO PROPER INQUIRY AND JUSTICE. THEN THE SYNTHETIC LAWYER SON GOT SPECIAL PRIVILEGES TO DO HIS LAW EXAM. GREED WANTED YOU TO CONDUCT THE ELECTION BEFORE HAND.

    SO MR. RAJAPAKSE YOU TOO WERE HAVING SUPPORT FROM THE SO CALLED NGOS TO DO ALL THIS AND IT SEEMS YOUR CONSCIOUS IS VERY CLEAR THAT YOU WERE A GOOD MAN KARMA IS NOWING SHOWING YOUR REAL SELF. PLEASE DO CRY MORE BECAUSE MANY ARE CRYING IN SILENCE BUT YOU HAVE THE PRESS CAMERAS TO SHOW ALL THIS. MIND YOU IF YOU WERE IN POWER THE PUBLIC WOULD NEVER SEE WHAT THE REPORTS ARE BEING SHOWN NOW SO THIS IS A DEMOCRACY YOUR TIME WAS HYPOCRISY

    This is getting so boring. We are tired of this crook blaming everyone but themselves for their crimes, and the predicament they are in. It is time the Rajapaksa’s took responsibility for their crimes, including corruption and murders. They must stop blaming others, the Western forces, the opposition, and everyone they can think of, to justify their crimes. Time to grow a spine and face the music Rajapaksas. You do the crime, you do the time.

    Please read between lines. These utterances are signs of absolute desperation. No facts but hanging on to open ended imaginations in real desperation. Having being the Executive President of Sri Lanka we expect much more matured thoughts, ideas and words from MR. It appears he has nothing left but to roll back his mere thoughts of doing any more politicking in Sri Lanka

    This is a throw back to the days when he was in power and everything that went wrong in the country was due to an international conspiracy to discredit him.

    It is fantastic the way the followers of Colombo telegraph snigger at the man who made a long awaited political decision to end the30 year tragic war) True he was assertive and may have had a few negative qualities of a strong leader (Even late Lew k.Yuan had some of making degenerates disappear). so was the LATE General Ranjan Wijeratne.If not for such men we would still be worse off today, than the unfortunate people of some Middle East nations.
    These righteous readers conveniently have amnesia regarding the bond scam where Ruinl’s FCID dares not interfere under the tragic yahapalanaya. However even the launderers of terrorist funding are given protection and appointed to cabinet posts.
    These degenerates then jump for joy when Yositha is arrested and remanded on a non working court day and without even being referred to the AG AS IT IS THE NORMAL LEGAL PROCEDURE.A concise effort to get at his illustrious father. THE IMPOTENT SIRA THE VILLAGE BOY STANDS BY WHEN FORCES COMMANDERS ARE BROUGHT BEFORE THE FCID FOR SERVING THEIR FORMER COMMANDER-IN CHIEF

    Traitors like the sobithaya the chief midwife who helped give birth, to a group bent on destroying our Motherland, Premadasa who Supplied the LTTE with cash and weaponry HAD GOT THEIR JUST DESERTS. i WOULD LIKE TO REMIND those debauched individuals that nothing is ever permanent and things change every second. But never mind continue your mindless joy until your masters feel the rebirth of the crackers that were lit on Premas death.This time the bang will be a lot louder to tolerate!

    Photos of the wife dressed in Western style dress and food, surely not home-cooked but from a leading Western-stye Hotel, was being taken in a procession. Perhaps all these are funded by foreign-runded NGOs.
