Maithripala’s Son Released On Police Bail, DIG’s Son Transferred To A Private Hospital

The son of the Deputy Inspector General of Police for Batticaloa, Ravi Waidyalankara has been transferred to a private hospital in Colombo for treatment of extensive injuries received after a group led by Daham Sirisena, the son of powerful UPFA minister and ruling party Secretary Maithripala Sirisena allegedly assaulted him at a resort in Sri Lanka’s East Coast.

All 13 suspects involved in the brutal assault, including the Minister’s son were released on police bail on Monday night.

Asela Waidyalanka was assaulted by the group of holiday-makers at a high end resort in the east coast town of Passikudah on Monday afternoon. The victim had objected to the allegedly intoxicated group snapping pictures of themselves indecently exposed with Waidyalankara, his wife and other hotel guests in the background.

Eyewitnesses said the attack had been instantaneous and the victim had been bruised and bloodied by his attackers.

Kalkudah Police who arrived on the scene to arrest the perpetrators were also nearly assaulted, witnesses said.

A senior DIG in charge of the Western Province telephoned the Kalkudah Police late Monday to order the release of the suspects, Colombo Telegraph learns. It is also learnt that several of the suspects have also obtained medical certificates in an attempt to prove that they were also injured in the confrontation.

    How are minister’s sons supposed to behave when their fathers are up to all sort shady activity. What lessons can these ministerial offspring learn? How to steal an election? how to engineer crossovers? how to take bribes? Kids see things more than parents think they do.

      Perhaps General SF is the right choice for Sri Lanka.

      He would round up these corrupt political monkeys and their offspring overnight.

      And line them up on Galle Face Green, in Colombo for public observation.

      Only solution that will work.

        I second it Ben Hurling. Off springs of politicians behave like “ballo” in a “balu porayaka”. They emulate their leader in Raja Gedara that sets an example of a country without law and order through his own behaviour. SF was the answer, and that’s why these corrupt politicians were against and betrayed him in order to save their skins.

          I fully agree with Ben Hurling and bonaparte. Yes our Parliament, all governing bodies, Pradesiya sabas, villege counsils,police and all forces, judiciary everything…… and now even spreading to the religious groups are infested with thugs, murderers, womanizers, cheaters, kappan crooks, drug mafias and all time Party jumpers with billion rupee stakes……..

          The opposition leader is nothing but a rotten cabbage.

          Therefore in order to put the country back to where it was we need people like GEN. SARATH FONSEKA TO RULE OUR COUNTRY.

          ONLY DISCIPLINE, HONESTY AND HARD WORK BRING PROSPERITY TO A COUNTRY……AND NOT THE 24 HOUR BANA DESANAWA.

          WE NEED SOMEONE SOON TO RESCUE OUR HALF SUBMERGED SHIP BEFORE IT TOTALLY SINK TO THE BOTTOM OF THE OCEAN…….AND FOR PEOPLE TO EAT POLKUDU(coconut dust) AND GRASS DIET.

    The sad part is the idiotic voters who vote for such ministers consider such acts as nothing more than youthful exuberance on the part of the ministers sons, and go right ahead shouting jayawaywaaa and vote them back into parliament once the next election comes along after a few handouts and bribes are passed around by the minister concerned. I for one have lost all hope of ever seeing the majority sheeple ever waking up to the reality of what is happening to their country. Rajapaksa supporters still trot out reasons like, “Oh, but now there are no bombs going off.” or “During the war around 7 to 10 sheeple died everyday but now there are none.” or “The high prices of essential food items are due to inflation and not due to mismanagement by the government.” or “At least now we have a country unlike during the war.” or “He (MR) ended the war and we should be grateful to him.” As long as a majority of the idiotic sheeple think like this, we will continue to see thugs and crooks being sent to parliament for the sole reason that these crooks and thugs come from the party that the man who won the war belongs to. RIP Sri Lanka. Welcome to Sri RajaPakistan.

    The reality of the brutal balu regime that rules Sri Lanka is evident in this incident – the rulers are looting the people and cournty and are fighting each other – the Rajapassa brothers – politician cronies – police – military and their off spring. The biggest law brakers in the cournty are the law makes and their off spring..
    THis must all change. Not only does Lanka need regime change, it needs opposition change as well. The political – military culture is sick and rotten to the core.

    If this bastard is behaving like barbarians now, can imaging how the hell the bastard will behave if his father becomes the PM of this country. Ideal characters for MR & Co.
    Finally the culprit will be DIG’s son as usual. What a law and order in our country?

    This is one of the major fringe benefits enjoyed by the politicians and their pig headed siblings. MR WOULD NOT BE ABLE to prune these benefits to his clan and other hencmen. So they are the king and his cabinet and others are like subjects who should be providing all the needed sacrifice for the sake of king and his cabinet.

    In a way it is good this incident happened. Police suck up to the corrupt politicians like dogs. Remember how the Chief Justice was chased away from her residence by SSP Premalal Ranagala?

    Now the time has come for the police to enjoy the same medicine. Serves them right. Come on Sirisena putha…

    “Long arm of the Law” will not be long enough to apprehend the offenders and mete out justice to the aggrived party. Minister Maithripala Sirisena, the self-proclaimed Mr.Clean, has exposed himself by trying to defend his unruly son and shown to the public what a politician realy is.

    Well, well, well, these unruly kids will be the future politicians and cabinet members given the current trend of politicking the whole country! If this guy with his friends attack a DIG’d son, knowingly or other wise, what chance an ordinary guy like you me will have? Absolutely nothing and even 100 witnesses will not support your case!

    This Ministers son had boasted that his father is going to be the next PM and how dare the policemans son talks back. This is a Malaka Silva type repeat performance. Politicians sons think they are above the law and everyone has to cringe before them. Hope the IGP teaches thse punks a lesson, or is he taking orders from the politicians re the rule of law.Pity we do not have an Indipendant Judiciary anymore.

    Most likely DIG father will accept the defeat for sake of his Job.He is already in Bati.Can’t think of worse place where he can be transferred..As commented above,this is a good lesson to Police.They worship and lick the boots of politicos.Even a DIG can’t ensure law and order in his area.An ordinary citizen may never get the police bail in the night just in 2 hours and pathetic to see DIG being area in charge,can’t remand the suspects till next day..If the police is this ‘efficient’ to grant bail in 2hours,why they want to change the law to keep the suspect for 48 hrs instead 24 hrs.

    Oh Danny boy

    Maithripala Sirisena was elected to Parliament with 90,118 preference votes in a democratic elections. Therefore he has the support of majority people.

    There could be other possibilities.

    This is a foreign plot to destabilise the state.

    False propaganda by exiled journalist

    LTTE rumps are working over time to punish the people of Sri Lanka for winning the war.

    Tamil Diaspora paid the DIG to create unpleasant incidents just before the Geneva meeting.

    DIG was avenging the state for overlooking him for promotion.

    This incident never happened.

    DIG’s son started it and the minister’s son was at the receiving end.

    We request opposition parties to bring this incident at the next parliament hearing, as these types of Ministers and their childrens Thug behaviours are increasing since lately.

    A parliament sitting on this incident and a full investigation is a must.

    When the government need to clean a person , they use the government media & other politicians. In this case top seat wants to put him down. No choice for the party secretary mr. clean. This unpleasant incident has been among two groups no police officers or politicians involved rather other cases. But some national list politicians
    & government media wants to show up & spoiled minister’s future prospects. We all know why & who is being waiting for that next seat.

    Maitripala S has come a long way as Bata-slippered son of a humble farmer, JVPer now to Paddy Mola King, multi-millionaire Hotelier and owner of 4 Star Hotels. The Politics he preached and practised may not have raised the Quality of Life of thousands of farmers or the poor he came to serve – but there certainly has been “progress and development” to him and his family. Familiar story, huh?

    Sir! DID YOU VOTE FOR THE IMPEACHEMENT? IF SO IMMEDIATELY RESIGN. YOU ARE HOLDING OFFICE ILLEGALLY. YOU DONT HAVE A BACKBONE TO SAY WHAT IS LEGAL AND ILLEGAL. YOU ARE SO SHELFISH THAT YOU JUST WANT TO PROTECT YOUR STATUS. SO YOURSELF COMES FIRST AND COUNTRY AND OTHER POOR CITIZENS CAN GO TO HELL RIGHT? YOU ARE NOT CONECERN ABOUT DEMOCRACY OR NIEITHER OF THE FAMILY DICTATORSHIP. YOU ARE JUST GETTING ALONG WITH THE IDIOT WITHOUT MAKING A CHANGE. YOU ARE NOT SUITABLE FOR THS POSITION.RESIGN IMMEDIATELY.

    Sirisena,being minister of health,has probably intimidated the medical officer into certifying that his son and friends were not under the influence of liquor and not smelling of liquor.
    Other medical doctors too appear to have colluded by certifying injuries on members of the gang.
    This will mitigate the case against them.

    There is NO “Police Bail” in the Penal Code.
    This is an invention by the police to favour those accused who have ‘clout’ – like the minister’s son and friends.
    Bail can be decided/granted,only by a magistrate.

    Is Maitripala S’s goose already cooked? People are reading much into his absence at the opening of the new facilities at Ragama. Now that we had a daughter as President with the Mother as PM not many feathers in the global community will be ruffled if another brother becomes PM to make it a Home-and-Home triumvirate running the country. Now that the 2/3rd is a done thing why not make all of them “for life”? If that happens, will we need this unnecessarily expensive jumbo Cabinet and a non-performing Parliament. The minor complication is – for the purpose of FDIs, Donor funds and large loans “a functioning and independent judiciary” may be necessary. But this can always be got round appointing young Namal into an appropriate role. Few will question the appointment as the lad has notched up over 99% in his law exams. Ask the Principal, Law College. If The Family needs a precedent to take cover they can always quote JFK made Bobby the Attorney General with the New York Times sarcastically commenting
    “after all the kid brother needs to begin his legal career somewhere”
