Mervyn Breaks Into Song About President Rajapaksa

Minister Mervyn Silva whose ties to the ruling Rajapaksa regime were recently restored, literally sang the praises of President Mahinda Rajapaksa in Parliament during the budget debates today.

Mervyn Silva

The Minister broke into song twice – once about SLFP MP and President Rajapaksa’s father D.A. Rajapaksa and again in adoration of the current head of state, during House sittings today.

Addressing the Chair, Speaker Chamal Rajapaksa, Minister Silva said that if he mentions the things he said to D.A. Rajapaksa in Parliament today, clad in a pair of shorts, the House would accuse him of seeking a return to a feudal system.

“I will protect President Mahinda Rajapaksa like a precious jem,” the Minister sang to the amusement of the members.

It was alleged recently that Minister Mervyn’s son Malaka had been brutally assaulted by Presidential Security Division officials inside the ODEL car park.

The Minister went to several Western diplomatic missions in Colombo after the assault, in an attempt to seek asylum for his son, claiming his life was under threat from the ruling regime.

In a strange twist, the Bribery Commission of Sri Lanka also filed action against Silva not long after the attack on Malaka Silva. It is the first time the Commission has filed action in court against an incumbent minister in the Government, making it clear that the move had been sanctioned by senior officials in the ruling regime.

The Bribery Commission had summoned Minister Silva to make a statement over his assets. The complaint relates to the luxury cars owned by the Minister’s son Malaka and claims that neither the Minister nor his family possess the funds to make the high end purchases. The hearing was supposed to take place in August but has since been postponed. It is not clear what created the rift between the Rajapaksa regime and Mervyn Silva.

        People’s votes mean – how they feel towards candidates/common views of the representative party/ies.
        If the voting outcome ended up in favor of candidates like Mervin, the key problem lies on the people NOT on Candidates like MERVIN. This is the reason why authorities together with professionals should work long enough to build a healthy society that could decide our future through their voting.
        All these deficiencies can be filled, if proper systems could make general public clear about the valuability of universal franchise.
        I have read somewhere lately, high schools in scandinavian countries (specially in Finland) they teach about Democracy as a subject. Teachers play a greater role promoting the democratic values to their pupils. Enquiring the wills of the participants encourage them taking part in their programs better, they have convinced by their teaching methods.
        So it is time for us lankens to start teaching about Disipline, HR, Democracy and other social values to the children from nursery on.

      Jester?? He is a Doctor!! Please think about his knowledge before you speak Mr Maverick, I really doubt you are a real Dr like our great Mervin..

      Real geniuses have extra talents and this is why you are so afraid of Dr Mervin Silva.

      Keep singing Mervin, these sri lankan modayas will someday realise the truth and die for the cause.

    ONE WONDERS WHY CMB TELEGRAPH DOES NOT PUBLISH BAD NEWS FROM SRI LANKA.. HAS IT CMB TELEGRAPH REACHED ITS BAD NEWS QUOTA FOR THE MONTH.. ANY WAY FOR ALL YOU FREEDOM LOVERS, HUMAN RIGHTS ACTIVIST, DEMOCRACY ACTIVIST.. THE NEWS..

    MP Sritharan glorifies Prabhakaran

    Tamil National Alliance (TNA) parliamentarian S. Sritharan today read out a prepared statement in Parliament glorifying and romanticizing the acts of slain LTTE leader Velupillai Prabhakaran.

    Prabhakaran’s birth anniversary also fell today. Mr. Sritharan, who justified the cause fostered by the LTTE called it a freedom struggle and stressed the need to commemorate the slain LTTE leaders and cadres on Mahaveer day.

    However, hisspeech drew widespread condemnation from government benchers. Higher Education Minister S.B. Dissanayake hit back at Mr. Sritharan saying Prabhakaran was responsible for the killing of so many leaders of both communities.

    Minister Vasudeva Nanayakkara was also opposed the statement made by the TNA MP.

    Meanwhile, Government MP Hunais Farook asked that the controversial sections in Mr. Sritharan speech be expunged from the Hansard. Murugesu Chandrakumar, the Deputy Chairman of Committees, gave an order to that effect.

    BECAUSE THE LTTE ARE THE TAMIL PEOPLE..HENCE AS CH4 WOULD SAY THAY HAVE NOT COMMITTED ANY CRIMES AS THEY ARE THE TAMIL PEOPLE AND ALL THOSE WHO OPPOSED IT ARE CRIMINALS. AS THE TNA SO WONDERFULLY STATES.(SOME SECTIONS)

    Glad the Bribery commission made an attempt at least…and then he went silent…

    LOL @ he trying to send his son as anasylee to a western country… bear in mind, Malaka made more enemies than friends who are scattered all over the globe. SAFEST place for Malaka, is under his dad’s sarong..

    Long after the Rajapakse name leaves the political scene their names, the way they governed, the “dirt” they used to remain in power by the
    variety of Kudu Mervin type, will remain in the imagination of the people. Their reputation and the imprint they leave behind will be defined by this poop and family in our political history. There is no doubt no name has been hated and vilified so much as this dreg.
    There is no good at all this character has done in his long years hanging round politicians to be interred with his bones. It is the evil that he will be remembered by.

    May be they carried out long awaited DNA tests and probably that cleared Rajapakshe^s fears if not fully to some extent. Else, there was no any acceptable reasons MINISTER OF DEFENCE to stay that CALM and QUIET while this mad cow has been running amok whenever he thought it suited to him.

      Well, We are all well aware of the fact that MR is a pig.
      So pigs get on with only pigs. Affinity to stay with all kind pigs should have been in their genetics. Else, how come MR, GR, BR, CR, NR and other Rs have the same tendencies… Can anybody please test on this PIG GENE in Rajapske^s genetic code ? That would then reveal the SECRET of them.

      MR is now so stinky like a pig. Perhaps it is a disgrace to real pigs (animals).

          It is better to react as if we did not notice this. I wonder why CT gives a publicity to this kind of issues. On one hand it is good to inform readership about MERVIN^s likable fall..

          Especially this laughing stock is greedy at public attendance. Like that monkey (or Rilawa) who is said to be travelling these days in SL from a place somewhere Udarata to other destinations.

          We must NOT show the attention towards that avajathaka son – if it is true or not… because his is also the same as his father does.
          For me, this man should not have rights to abuse the nation to the man he is appointed to do so, our people deserve something better.

    Lanka Standards Award winning journalism can be quoted a few years ago
    as follows:- Can we see any change?

    “(1) Introduction to the Mervyn Silva Investigation
    Mr. Mervyn Silva is a powerful Cabinet Minister in President Mahinda Rajapakse’s Cabinet. Not afraid to get his hands dirty and use his several connections to the drug barons and underworld of Sri Lanka, Minister Silva is a law unto himself and is one of President Rajapakse’s most valuable attack dogs. Not unlike his father, Minister Silva’s son Malaka has been notorious for terrorizing Colombo and its nightspots and is also a paid government official in Minister Silva’s Ministry. No one dares speak out against the Silva family due to their connections both with the underworld and their immunity due to presidential patronage.
    In September 2007 after a particularly gruesome attack on an innocent bystander allegedly by Malaka Silva, at a salsa club, I decided enough was enough and took the Silva family head on. I personally investigated the incident and continued to pressure the government with article after article that included details of Presidential patronage. Backed fully by the President, Minister Silva attempted to influence the judges, twist evidence, change the charge sheet and even had police officers that first handled the case transferred. I followed Mr. Silva’s machinations closely, backed up my investigations with documents and recorded interviews of lawyers, police officers and a large number of sources and pursued the case relentlessly. It would be the first time a journalist and a newspaper had dared to go after the Minister and his son so visibly.
    On November 20, 2007 a Wednesday, our Newspaper presses (Factory) not surprisingly, fell under an arson attack. Lorry loads of The Morning Leader newspaper of which I am Editor in Chief, were burnt in the attack as they were being taken for distribution.
    But I continued to investigate this case and stand up for what we believed was justice and fair play.
    Three months after my exposès and articles, on December 27, 2007, Minister Mervyn Silva was to storm into the State-owned Television Station – The Rupavahini Corporation and threaten and manhandle its News Director. Mr. Silva had been irate that the TV Station had given coverage the day before to a speech that praised a political opponent. By now however my newspaper The Sunday Leader had given the lead and emboldened other journalists to stand up to this bully. At no other time would journalists working for the State and mindful of who their paymasters were, ever have thought of standing up to such a powerful government minister. This time they did. (See Article Titled ‘Boxing Mervyn Day’ at page 15 of this document)
    Thus December 27 became a turning point for many journalists particularly for those who worked in State media. I believe this new found freedom was single handedly precipitated by The Sunday Leader’s relentless pursuit for truth, justice and fair play.
    In September 2008, for this series, I won the prestigious International Award for Investigative Journalism – The Global Shining Light Award presented by the Global Investigative Journalists Conference in Norway.”

      If what you commented here is the truth, why does it take that long this kind of perpetrators to repeat their agendas ? If even after 5 years (2013), people in the country feel that crimes commited by Mervin and the like have not been properly investigated.

    The quality of Members of Parliament had gone to such low ebb that they could only praise their so called leaders of both sides. Whether a terrorist or a dictator or whoever he/she is.
    Budget debate is to give an alternative budget speech by members giving their opinion.
    These thugs who sit in that august assembly even don’t know that. I know few of them Ministers personally who had not passed the GCE (OL ) Till the voters of this get rid of such idiots this country will be ruled by jokers.
    But who would stand up-to this and create constitution that will eradicate so much ills of our beloved motherland?

    The UNP must include in its manifesto a promise that if they ever come to power there will the an act of parliament passed which condemns this miserable SOB to be stripped naked and frog march up and down Galle face green for one whole day followed by a very long prison sentence. No trial is needed. His crimes are so obvious that having a court tied up hearing the case is a waste of time and money. It is called throwing some red meat to the masses. I am sure it will go down very well.

    This is from German TV. From what I happened to watch this morning (27th November 2013).

    Srilanka’s intolerance in front of tattooed tourists grows was the topic that as they reported.
    One female German tourist who had lately been mistreated just because her right upper arm was tattooed with a Buddha image. She further said, this was not the first time she traveled to the country with her tattoos. Hotel service people had asked her not to show anywhere because religious tattoos of that kind can cause the authorities to put her in jail.
    There are also tourists who body parts are painted with Jesus, Hindu gods or any other religious figures – if these issues had PREVIOUSLY been NOT tolerated, and today it is not the case – paradoxically human rights violations are reported to be not addressed properly… IT IS BECOMING CLEAR THAT LAWLESSNESS IS GOVERNING…. IN THE COUNTRY UNDER MR ADMINISTRATION.
    Guys, this is not at all a good NEWS for other tourists too, that keep travelling to Srilanka. Srilanken authorities should react promptly in painting a better picture about the country, if they really want TOURISTS to visit the Island. It is said, germans are the majority of the tourists that travel to the country.
    Right at the moment, the entire world knows that president of Srilanka is alleged war criminal. And the human rights violations are reported to at its top at the moment, while the minister of defence, president himself seems to be taking NO serious. As many got it in CHOGM period, he only tried to cover – when journalists raised the issue.

    Why are people so quick enough to grab an opportunity to condemn Mervyn Silva. People should devote their time to developing the country. Be constructive and bring forth good ideas that would help the country. For instance, provide some good ideas to improve education levels in the country. Ideas to create jobs, improve housing for the poor. Wake up people, spend your valuable time on developing the country.
