Malaka Silva Case: “Guilty” Major Chandana Pradeep Transferred To A Shadow Unit

By Colombo Telegraph

The injured Major Chandana Pradeep

Army Intelligence officer, Major Chandana Pradeep, who was found “guilty” by the Army’s Court of Inquiry, was transferred from the Military Intelligence Corps yesterday.

“He was transferred to a shadow unit with effect from yesterday,” a senior military official told Colombo Telegraph.

The decision has been taken after the investigation report of the Army’s Court of Inquiry, appointed to probe the alleged brawl between the Army Major and a government Minister’s son Malaka Silva at JAIC Hilton,Colombo, revealed that the Major had provided security to a former casino owner businessman Nalin Fonseka at the time of the incident using his service weapon unlawfully. Major Pradeep was in charge of the Sri Lanka Army’s Colombo-South Intelligence wing.

    If this Major was there in the week hours of the morning at the JAIC Hilton to provide security to a notorious ganglord-drug trafficker, as alleged, then we have hit a new low. There was a time in Indonesia when Govt workers, including the uniformed, invariably go to their offices log in their presence and then do something else. It was widely believed beginning reent times our uniformed men too make their servces available to crime lords for financial consideerations – a very dangerous trend.

      Senguttuvan why don’t you see the good side of it as well. With such a situation it will enable for someone to use, one or two of them to rid the Corrupt leaders as well for a handsome reward. Hope and Prey someone catches on to the idea.

      Moon lighting is part and partial of civil service, teaching profession police forces………for many many years.

      This is a new twist to the age old story where serving military personnel providing personal protection services to known criminal fraternities.

      If political protection is available to the criminals 24/7/52 do you think it is wrong for Major to provide physical protection to enemies of people?

      Sinhala/Buddhists time and again told me it was the LTTE which was responsible for all ills of the country. Then they blamed the stupid Tamil diaspora. In between they accused the JVP.

      As usual I am bit confused.

      Could you help me to understand what has been going on in my ancestral island. Since I am too busy collecting more honey to eke out a living I am unable to follow every twist and turns to the Sri Lankan sorry story.

      Looking forward to your detailed analysis.

      The crime lord this Major was protecting was also visited by Malaka Silva that night.Malaka was a VIP’s son so he goes scot free after assaulting the Major but the Major who belongs to the militqary -saviour of the sinhala race – is a nobody and so suffered for being in the wrong place when Malaka Silva visited the drug baron. Poor sod!

    Dear Gamini,

    In the Platonic tradition and expectation, like many in this blog and elsewhere, I tend to be critical of what I see as wrong. Assassination is not part of my trade although I agree with you there will be multiple thousands who would applaud on what you are thinking of. If I may add, President Park Chung Hee was certain no one would pull the rug under him and therefore he ordered that his trusted Chief of Intelligence be exempt from frisking – and that apparently was his eventual and bloody downfall.

    Your and my ancestral land, dear Native Veddah, has gone to the rats
    (Ballangen poosata; poosangen miyyata) You are a clever bloke moving from the Mahinyangana jungles (part of my Traditional land, by the way) to ole blighty – to collect honey (and money). Think of returning home now to the Wonder of Asia – now that Nimal Siripala, who claims he studied with the Veddahs, is a candidate for PM. What a team of brilliant lawyers that will make – the President and PM. Just what the Doctor ordered. I am, my friend, no teacher. I am just a humble student. There’s little you’ll learn from me.

    The bottom line is that the major providing security to the casino owner who is not a member or belong to the Government camp. If so the verdict would have been different.

    If the casino owner that the Major who provided security was a Government goon….the verdict to the major would have been a promotion and not a transfer.

    I think we have hit a new low due to scum like Malaka being able to assault any one and every one as he pleases. The Major was clearly in the wrong to act as security for the Casino owner but he was probably trying to earn a buck, much better than robbing a bank. Whatever reasons he did it for should be disciplined within the army and Malaka too should be appropriately punished. But of course in our ‘paradise’ the concept of what is fair and right does not exist.

    Muddleheaded opposition parties are not just in disarray but on a wild goose chase. Swollen headed bigwigs of the opposition do not know the difference between and a sitting duck and a wild goose.

    Their hate, idiocy and foolishness always mystify themselves away from their target. So, they bypass the sitting duck and go after the wild goose chase. Otherwise why drop that ‘Malaka silva incident’ like a hot potato and pick on popular Rajapakses.

    I can visualize reasons why yesteryear LTTE backers’ hate Rajapakses and keep writing gibberish here as if they are the democracy loving true Sri Lankans. What I cannot understand is the mindset of those that urge us to fight for a ‘one Sri Lanka’ hates Rajapakses so much.

    Most opposition parties are formulated with different fundamentals and have different policies. Joint opposition is a joke specially if UNP, TNA and JVP to join hands and promote a single candidate for president. It’s like a bison, or a buffalo, or a yak, tied together with an ox to pull a cart. But that’s what they did at the last presidential election. Fortunately multi-headed hydra lost. Otherwise, it’s different head would have eaten the other and ruined the base that it stood as well.

    Some in the opposition never seemed to learn a lesson. Today, we hear that the UNP banned its members to attend Fonseka rallies. JVP cadres do not even talk about Fonseka. If the opposition earnestly wanted to serve the mass, they need not converge in to that fabled hydra.

    Each opposition party should talk good deeds by the government as good and bad as bad separately in their own way. They should criticize the government severely for keeping wild and corrupt goons in its fold and expose their bribery, sleaze and corruption incessantly but not falsehood and myth. Alas, the opposition do not know what not to pick and what to hang on to.

    Sri Lankans by far not just believe but seriously believe that NGOs are anti-national entities and they are out to destroy Sri Lanka, and they are funded by the west, and they conspire to help and assist the separatists to plan for roadmaps to get to Eelam.

    Do you know why no opposition party can muster mass support to make their strikes, protest marches, rallies and sit-ins a success? I’ll tell you why: Most Sri Lankans, I mean by far suspect that they are all funded by dirty NGOs, separatists and their backers.

      This is what the average want to see, but so long the top leadership is on their side, nothing will change. My rancor is MR and his politics.

      “Hope the bastard brat dies. That will teach his father a lesson.”

      Are you sure you wished him to die?

      Shame on you.

    There is another rumour around. Men in the military had, as the story goes, decided when the Major was assaulted by Kudu Jr and was let go scot free they will come out with tit for tat in due time. They were not going to let this insult on one of their colleagues by a wretched father-son degenerate duo simply escape. If that is true then we can expect more fireworks soon. Wijeweera too went far with his own indiscretions. But when he took on men in the army – as the late Mervyn Silva eloquently described “the Empire struck back” and Wijeweera became history – at the hands of army men. Has the gangster duo from the Sacred City down the Kelani made the final blunder of them all? Kudu Mervin’s threat after the son’s incident will be noted by the ranaviru – surely.

    Don’t you think that their patron who is behind covering up all sins that the father and the son are committing should learn a lesson? By the way, Peter, are you still in UK?
