Media Minister’s Notorious Drunken Son Tried To Open Aircraft Cabin Door At 35,000ft

A drunken Sri Lankan cricketer caused panic on a packed British Airways passenger flight when he tried to open the cabin door at 35,000ft, the The Telegraph UK reported. The Drunken cricketer is non other than Sri Lanka’s Minister of Media and Information Keheliya Rambukwella‘s notorious son Ramith Rambukwella, a source within the Sri Lankan cricket team told Colombo Telegraph.

Witness Charlene Francis, 26, from Willesden in London quoted by the Daily Mail said she was just a few feet away from the unfolding drama with her one year-old daughter ‘TJ’, her mother Linda and sleeping brother Kevin, when the incident happened in economy class about six hours into an eight hour flight from St Lucia to London’s Gatwick Airport.

‘The BA flight attendants came running down the aisle and tried to calm him down. He seemed quite disoriented. At one stage he was leaning against my daughters cot.’ She heard the man tell cabin crew that he had been looking for the toilet – an account confirmed by British Airways. Mrs Francis said: ‘It was very scary. He looked very dazed or drunk. He was very tall and wearing black and red ‘Dre’ headphones.

He was very tall and wearing black and red ‘Dre’ headphones

British Airways said: ‘During the flight a man got up and tried to go to the toilet. ‘But instead of going to the toilet he tried to open the aircraft door in mid-flight. ‘The event was linked to “an element of alcohol”. He explained his mistake and cabin crew accepted it in good faith. Cabin crew reassured customers who witnessed the event.’

          It would have ended in a very fatal way. Outcome would have been unimaginable.

          Yet, I forgive this political brat. He did not beat up somebody. This was high stakes, drunken, misbehaviour.

          On the other hand, media minister may chose to call this yet another British conspiracy against Asia new rising star. Sri Lanka.

          Native You are correct I have on good authority Lavatory door sign was placed on the Aircraft door to trap the young lad.And his water bottle been spiked to disorientate him. This story will be published in the Daily Good News soon with some other evidence that will exonerate the young lad.Apparently lad sleep walks regularly.Like his father when he fell from the balcony down under hotel trying to stand on his head.

            Don’t you think its only fair to sue the BA for its part in spiking the drink? Why would BA spike his glass of water? Did anyone plan to rape him?

            My elders tell me that the westerners practice date rape. Is this an attempted travel rape? If this is true, its a serious diplomatic incident. GL should take this up with William Hague.

            Is Weerawansa planning a boycott of BA, Google, Yahoo, facebook,….?

      Sinhala Buddhist thugs are ruling the country wrapped in the Buddhist flag and running sports businesses… so this is the result.

      This is not an isolated incedent. Few months ago we had a Political VIP son hammered a Rugby Referee and got away without any punishment.

      Before that another VIPs sons hammered an Army Major and got away intact. Another two VIP son hammered a son of Pilice DIG and got away scott free.

      Also we see Many politicians sons using their Parents VIP status to intimidate public and misusing peoples mandate, which we did not see in the past.

      Infact of correcting their own children Politicians Give Military training to school Principals to discipline students.

      Our country was governed by Gentlemen in the past, now been taken over by Fake double face hypocrite Political Jokers.

      It’s time to unmask the Jokers.

        I take it that you want to send the political brats, their children, their parents, grandparents, great grandparents, uncles, aunts, cousins, nieces and nephews, and other members of extended families for military leadership training.

      Father is reported have fallen down from a hotel balcony. The son is now reported to be mistaken in finding the toilet door in a BA flight. More like genetic syndromes. Father as Media minister is very talented at dodging the questions – rather like a cheatable custom officer in lanken customs, not once very many times,as I noticed in videos. There cunning smile is akin to that of MR. All these are just a bunch of thieves elected by stupid majority of the nation :(

        First US and TODAY UK come up with these warnings….

        COMING COLOUR IS NO GOOD FOR THE COUNTRY…

        UK warns of gangs in Lanka
        July 2, 2013

        The British Foreign Office has warned visitors to Sri Lanka to be mindful of organised and armed gangs known to operate in Sri Lanka who have been responsible for targeted kidnappings and violence.

        The Foreign office says while violent crimes against foreigners are infrequent, there have been an increasing number of reports of sexual offences including on minors.

        It also says women should take particular care when travelling alone or in small groups, and carry a personal alarm.

        “Organised and armed gangs are known to operate in Sri Lanka and have been responsible for targeted kidnappings and violence. While there is no evidence to suggest that British nationals are at particular risk, gangs have been known to operate in tourist areas. A British national was killed during a violent attack by a gang in a tourist resort in December 2011,” the travel advice said.

        Just this week the US Ambassador to Sri Lanka had been summoned by the External Affairs Ministry to seek a clarification on a travel note issued by the US State Department to US citizens visiting Sri Lanka.

        The US State Department had, in the travel note, cautioned it’s citizens when visiting Sri Lanka of crimes targeting foreigners.

        As was first reported in the Colombo Gazette on Saturday, the travel information for US citizens visiting Sri Lanka said that while most violent crime occur within the local community reports of violent crime and sexual assaults directed at foreigners have been increasing in recent months.

        It further adds that organized and armed gangs are known to operate in Sri Lanka and have been responsible for targeted kidnappings and violence, although there is no evidence to suggest that U.S. citizens are at particular risk. (Colombo Gazette)

    When shit fellows are selected to do a job of representing the nation the disgrace is inevitable. Father like son and no question about that. Father jumped off the 3rd floor when got locked after. Son trying jump off the plane. Well hope he would not try to sue the airline. No wonder Sri Lankans becoming the laughing stock of the world. The DRUNKERDS of this nature only should be preserved for local activities as shown above in the 2nd or 3rd picture if tehr is no objection from authorities. Should they be allowed to display their ape like characteristics just because they carry that in the genes. Now father will have teach the son how exel in laundring whic he has perfected to do for the government.

      Aegon Targaryen,

      We don’t mind if this is a mistake as we are all human.

      But why all these “Mathatha Thitha” and “Halal” and “No meat eating” BBS forcing to Close down all meat stalls, while they themselves live a different life while deceiving public. This is the difference.

      They are the ones who say this is Lord Buddha’s country and this is a Sinhala Buddhist country etc,,etc, While The Parliament and Gnanasara thero is the biggest Liquor Patrons.

      Why the double standard and whom these Politikkas trying to deceive.

      This is where the problem is. The Rajapakse Clan’s pure Hypocracy, deceive and deception.

      Hope you understand now.

    Good that he didn’t wee in the babys cot, just held it ;-D.

    Few explanations below:

    -He just checked if the flight doors were properly secured.

    -He is going to apply to Srilankan cadet pilot course and wanted to familierize with the 777.

    – He wants to join the commando parachute regiment and wanted to use the opportunity to try it.

    -He drank so much of whisky he thought he will have to take the tab so he wanted to slip away.

    -He is a” monitering” stew and wanted to check the work of the others.

    Or the most probable explanation is: he is, like his dad ,have a tendency to break in to all sort of places and steal.So he thought this was the walt of Srilankan treasury, he wanted to grab some cash!

    When you put monkeys in places other than trees this is what happens.

    This guy has travelled around the world and now say he mistook the Pilot’s Cabin door to the toilet door. Why don’t he admit that he was drunk and apologise for what he did.

    Also what else could you expect from these mega rich Political Tycoons sons who owns mega Liquor shops, Bars and restaurants run under different names.

    This is all what they did ever since coming to power while poor farmers are crying to get their Fertilizer quota and university students have to fight to educate themselves.

    Screwing the country’s wealth and shitting every where they go and everything they do. Same with Gamarala’s Foreign Bogus Nade trips chartering and loosing Billions to our Airline Industry .

    Preaching Bogus “MATHATA THITA” “COW SLAUGHTER””SINHALA BAUDDHIST NATION” “DESHA PREMI JATHI AALA” to people and Duping the citizens while owning mega Taverns, Liquor shops, Liquor Bars and Restaurants etc,that are run under different owners names.

    Parliament including BBS Gnanasara is the Biggest Tavern and Liquor Bar in the Country, now fighting to close down Taverns, Liquor shops and Meat stalls.

    Keep duping the public and screw the country, and keep Blaming Suddha, Suddha’s Parents, and International community and say this is another Foreign conspiracy.
