Mirusuvil Murderer Of Tamil Children Let Loose By President

By N. Lohathayalan

N. Lohathayalan

Even as this new government gives a full pardon to the convicted throat-slitting murderer of a 5 year old boy in Mirusuvil, much order parents who have abandoned children are denied such an amnesty. The amnesty was confirmed at a press conference at the UNP’s Sri Kotha by former Minister Ajith P. Perera on Sunday 12 Jan. where he mentioned that many had been given amnesty. This article in large part was written immediately after President Gotabaya Rajapaksa assumed office but was not printed because there was no hard confirmation that he really would let the murders of Tamil children loose. Alas!

On 19 Dec. 2000, eight persons including four children had had their throats slit by army Staff Sergeant Sunil Ratnayake. While Ratnayake has been pardoned, the father of two children in Kilinochchi, Sudhaharan by name, is languishing in prison without the father or mother. 

At the time some persons had gone to Mirusuvil to see how their properties were faring after they had to flee as forces moved in. Army Sergeant Sunil Ratnayake at the sentry point down their street had stopped them for questioning. Eight of them had gone to the soldiers as ordered, while the ninth pretended to be a lone pedestrian going down the street and had thereby escaped. This was Ponniah Maheswaran of the same village of Mirusuvil.

Mass Murder Convict Staff Sergeant Sunil Ratnayake

These eight who had been detained in the evening had not returned home even after sunset. Relatives set out to look for them the next morning by when they had still not returned but could find no trace of them. They filed a complaint with the police after the army denied having seen them. Consequent to that, the police instituted a search. That eight persons had been detained came to be known widely and the police intensified their search.

Magistrate Inspecting Septic Tank with Bodies

As a result, on 24 Dec. 2000, some bodies were found in the septic tank of a toilet by the side of the army camp. The matter was then reported to the Chavakacheri Courts. When the judge inspected the scene, four youths under the age of 18 were discovered besides four men with decomposed bodies, throats slit and eyes blindfolded. Some had their legs and hands chopped off. One had his skin peeled, looking pink.  Among the eight murder victims was five-year-old Visvarayan Prasath. Even the most hard-hearted could not fail to be moved by the sight.

Further to it, an inquiry was held at the Chavakacheri Magistrate’s Court and a report was sent to the Attorney General’s Department. The Attorney General filed action in the Jaffna High Court. A direct and important eye-witness was Ponniah Maheswaran, besides others. Staff Sergeant Ratnayake was given a death sentence. Appeal to the Supreme Court failed.

At the same time, former LTTE member Sudhaharan is languishing in jail. Two of his children are struggling under the care of their mother who has married again.

The former President’s promise to release him soon  seems forgotten. There are 103 Sudhaharans in jail whom no one seems to care for and they too remain forgotten.

At this time some politicians in the North have met the relatives of these persons in prison and given them the false promise to release them soon. Now they say it will be done after April. Recall, the next election will be in late April or so! Tamils are not such fools. 

What is the message in the presidential pardon? Is it not that Tamils, even Tamil children, may be murdered and the killers celebrated?

Among the promises the president made before the elections was that no soldier would be punished. That is why the Sinhalese voted for him. How proud now are the Sinhalese who voted to let child murderer Ratanayake go free?

    “Loo and Odor”. I am sure public will have enough excuses and explanations to offer for the government. Yet government expects displaced to return to country, foreigners to invest money in Sorry Lanka, minorities to believe they are part of this country ,and last but not least trying to convince world bodies that our judiciary is intact and overall not dysfunctional. Soon it will be Pillayan and Duminda.

        And absolute contempt for our judiciary and the supreme court.
        This pardon sends a chilling message to all of us:

        Will the BASL fight for us?

        While the pain of injustice and suffering of northern people is very real, we must also ask: Who organized and staged the ISIS Easter Sunday attacks in Sri Lanka to set up US lily pad military bases in the Indian Ocean?

        Most of the churches attacked at Easter has children and they were Tamil children.
        Has the US deep state that owns and operates ISIL which is funded by its Saudi and Isreali partners which staged the attacks been even named by the cowardly Tamil politicians who are paid by USAID to keep their mouths shut?!
        Lankan minorities are now all forced to support the regime because of the US Rogue State’s Pivot to Asia!. This is the big picture of the trap we are in.. and the minorities need to wake up and see the big picture too..

      N Lohathayalan,

      Sad justice.Refer to the UN and see what happens? Nothing?

      Where are the Black Tigers?

      This is Tribal Justice.

      The murderer of Para-Tamil children belonging to the Tamil Tribe, by the Para- Sinhala killer belonging to the Para-Sinhala Tribe, by the President who belongs to the Para-Sinhala Tirunelveli, is Tribal Justice.

      This justice is in conflict with the Roman Dutch Law imposed on the Paras, which the Para-Sinhala, who follow Para-Sinhala Para-“Buddhism “, called Buddhagama, where the Para-imbeciles, prostrate to saffron clad monks, who were abused as child monks, in addition to trees, statues and even to tooth, and distort Buddhism, and insult the Buddha and his philosophy, Dhamma.

      Historical and molecular genetics data conclusively probe that the Paras are Paras in the land of Native Veddah Aethho, and they came from their native Homeland India.

      Please refer this cafe to Tamil Nadu in Bharat.-India.

        Staff Sergeant Sunil Ratnayake should be sent as defence attache to Sri Lanka High Commission UK, because he has actually slit the throats of Tamils, unlike that stupid brigadier who only threatened to slit the throats of Tamil demonstrators.

        A guy who learnt Buddhism from a book written by an anti-Sinhala, anti-Buddhist Dravida Kallathoni guy who embraced Christian religion telling Buddhist Monks and Sinhala Buddhists who preserved Buddhism for more than 2500 years to reform Buddhism is a big joke.
        These guys are paid to carry out mud-slinging campaigns against Buddhism, Buddhist Monks and Buddhists. So what else one can expect?

        It was Brahmans in Hindusthan who distorted pristine Buddhism by infusing ideas of Brahmanism into Buddha’s teachings and insulted Buddha and his philosophy. Brahmans were angry with Gauthama Buddha for saying:
        “Najajjā vasalō hōti, najajjā hōti Brāhmanō
        Kammanā vasalō hōti, kammanā hōti Brāhmanō”
        “It is not the birth that makes a noble person or an ignoble person, but it is one’s actions (the way one lives one’s life) that determines whether one is a noble person or an ignoble person”.

          Eagle Confused Eye,

          Thanks for the reference.

          Agree, it is not the birth that makes a noble person, and it is the actions, per enlightened Buddha.

          Based on this discourse, and the actions of the Para- monks and Para-imbeciles, who prostrate to these “monks”, distorting facts and committing crimes, are NOT Noble Persons.

          We need the enlightened Buddha back and give the same discourse to the Para-monks and the Para-imbeciles who prostrate and follow them, calling it Buddhagama. Will they chase away the Buddha?

          PS. Do not prostrate to Para-monks. You will get nowhere. When you die will be oxidized by oxygen, or consumed by the Earthly microorganisms.Don’t count on Nibbana. Remember this, the next time you prostrate to imbecile monks, who got the Monk treatment, as youngsters.

              Eagle Confused Eye,

              Copernicus preached “Bana”, to the Greeks and the Catholic Church that it was the Earth that moves and orbits the Sun.

              Galileo was imprisoned for telling the Truth, and Giardano Bruno was burned at the stake, on the orders of the Catholic “Monks”, Popes , Cardinals etc.

              The truth is that the so-called Buddha-agama, Buddha’s Religion, practiced by the Para-imbeciles, is simply to maintain the hegemony of the Para-Monks. They all are distorting Buddhism, the Dhamma, the Philosophy, and insulting the Buddha.

              The imbeciles have no clue. All they do is prostrate to the monks, and get their IQs to drop by the Prostrate Effect.

              Suckers.

        Arise,
        I don’t know about Drone attack but I saw the following news item yesterday published by the Press:
        “That President Trump delivered a letter to President Rajapaksa is a clear signal that the U.S. is prepared to strengthen its ties with the new Government of Sri Lanka on the contrary to the views held in some quarters of Sri Lanka that relations will sour under the new set up here because of policy differences as far as human rights and minority issues are concerned.
        Ms. Welles outlined this constructive partnership sought after by her country was something beneficial to both the countries and with significant potential, particularly given President Trump’s broader vision on the Indo-Pacific region.
        “We were able to discuss the dimensions of the Indo-pacific region with emphasis on increasing trade and investment as well as enhancing governance that allows for increase in investment,” she said.
        While thinking about Drone attack, if you read the full story you will get a heart attack!

        That is the way ‘Para’ Demalu see the situation.
        Rajapakses risked their lives to save the people in this country irrespective of race or religion from ‘Para’ Dravida LTTE barbarians who went in a killing spree of innocent men, women, children and even unborn babies. They did things even animals do not do. Imagine slitting the tummy of pregnant Sinhala women, pull out the babies, throw them up and hold the sharp point of a bayonet towards the falling babies. This kind of behavior is nothing new. ‘Para’ Dravida invaders from Hindusthan behaved like this from 3rd Century BC.

      why suddenly tamil tigers and their wester master don’t have anymore power? Secret is Western masters, Tamil Taggers and the Jews movement have been playing tricks in least three years to build up reasons to bribe Sinhalese and bring back Rajapksese.. As a part of it , Jews created RW, prez Sirisane and team “for a three-year project to turn all Sinhalese votes for Rajapakese

      Now all Sinhalese spies who carried out under ground tricks to arrest SL soldiers are given high posts in MR and GR government under the order of Jews who created fake war crime charges to bring popularity to MR/GR.
      See How nicely sly covert operation was done by Jews and Western Masters to fool Sinhalese Modayas voters? For the last time, Jews communicated and advised GR and RW was yesterday or just a few hours before my comment.

    Come May 2020., after the gen elections which will have most of the SLPP MPs from “Baiyy-Tech” types the perfect cross breed to SLPP – Bayyos + ViyathMaga’s so called ‘Technocrats’ with the new name ” Baiyy-Tech’ with traditional SLFPers and Mahinda loyalists shown the door.

      Matilda,

      Did Gota bilateral any laws in releasing a killer? As the President, JR imposed President , he is given constitutional powers, to release criminals and killers . Sirisena did that too.

      One thing they all have in common is that they all belong to the Para-Sinhala Tribe. So, they are releasing criminals who are tribal members, who generally prostrate to imbecile monks.

      This tribe certainly has many imbeciles, who prostrate to monks.

      Do you want to return them? Ask for Chinese help, like in Tibet,

        Gota will release the killers once after the gen elections for sure. The deal is to pardon the drug king of Kolonnawa who is in Prion Hospital now. The deal is with his brothers TV channel promoting the Technocrat and spread racism, he will be releases after elections.

          @Lal, the bloody LTTE is a creation of the successive Lankan governments and the government’s attitude towards anyone who was not a Buddhist. LTTE killed children who belonged to the majority? Yes, they did as they were maniacs. Did the Lankan armed forces massacre children who belonged to the Tamil community from the early 80s? Yes they did. So don’t hide that fact and only talk about what the LTTE did. If you have given another 30 years the LTTE and the Armed forces would have massacred every innocent person on the soil. Both sides have done enormous amount of damage and enough is enough. We who write here, some vile racists give flippant comments with absolute disregard for human life in Sri Lanka. We Sinhalese and Tamils are one, remember that. Only the dirty filth want to see a separation.

    This is very clear to UNHRC and other world s bodies, but they stay stand still not reacting accordingly. Public racism is being promoted by local media.TV channel do it for any extremists favourite leaders. The myth that sinhalese came out of lions is being believed yet today. Myths and superstitions are part and parcel of the society. THe reaping harvest go to CROOK politicians. Whatever they utter, though blatant lies would go viral as if they are being preached to a dead audience.

    This country not only WAR crimes, but also in the aftermath of that, they deliberately perpetrated HIGH crimes

    1-Ekanaligoda missing leaving two young boys and his wife – even today the victimized family is in grief but Rajakshes enjoy with over 10 000 guests attending their son s weddings, being celebrated with the money, that MR deliberately stole durin ghis term. THere are no limits of his money laundering acts

    2. People, at large believe in Karma, but nothing yet seems to be taking it up against MR why – though some signs are there, the bugger is blocked sometimes amidst his self glorified public remarks on whatever the issues they are.

    3. I believe in truth and JUSTICE, no doubt these men would have to face it to the very same style Gadafi and his family faced it few years ago.

      “Public racism is being promoted by local media”.. you must be joking… Look at the way that you and other tamils with pseudo Sinhala user names here unleashing hatred on Sinhalese and Buddhism. So you want to talk about racial discrimination an other issues…. It doesn’t work that way man.. I always say this.. Things happened in the past from both side. It is time to forget and forgive and move on.

      @Leelagemalli, “The myth that sinhalese came out of lions is being believed yet today.” Seriously man… you must be a super fking moron to say that.. None of Sinhalese believe it. heheh…It is just another ancient epic story like other religions and ethnic groups have. Pretty sure Hinduism must have one..

      WHY IS THAT ? So called war victory and promotion of thuggery in the society were claimed by Rajakashes. I think the day Rajakaseh would be fated with a bomblast destroying them all together, this country would start becoming a heaven for goodies.

      Ajith,
      President Gotabhaya Rajapakse should release all the members of Armed Forces behind bars because they risked their lives to save this country and people from ‘Para’ Dravida LTTE terrorist barbarians. Mahinda Rajapakse pardoned and released hundreds of Dravida LTTE barbarians who committed heinous crimes against Sinhalayo. Sinhala Buddhists did not object to that decision.

    There is more to this than meets the Eye. The incident took place in the year 2000 long before the Rajapakses took over. Besides Gota was in the USA [ An American Citizen ] then. So this release has other overtones, apart from overriding the Judiciary!

    If there is one family who benefited most with this Presidential form of Governance it is the Rajapakses.
    So this is is the essence of Buddhist Theravada ethos?

We know for certain that judges were subject to pressure by whoever who had the authority, directly or indirectly by proxies to the extent that death sentences may have been pronounced in anticipation of promotions. Again is the process of granting pardons free and fair? What I now say may raise a hornets nest but nevertheless the truth is the truth. How fair is it to languish a person in jail, to be precise in a detained or remanded state for years without trial? This is the complaint made by certain elected representatives of the Northern Province. Now in some cases, the period of remand or detention is such that it is clearly more than half the period of a prison sentence had that person been found guilty. Ethnic biases aside there has to be some sense of justice and proportion. Of course I am informed that a woman languishing in jail in a remand state for murder for decades simply because the “file is missing” and that she has confessed to the crime and that happens to be one of poisoning the husband. DAMN IT. Since executions are not carried out and practically life sentence is approximately 20 years why not a free pardon for that woman? Yes! Usually all poisoners are executed but in Sri Lanka a poisoner (a priest) was finally released after about 20 years. SOLVE PROBLEMS INSTEAD OF BREADING THEM.

    MR became President on the wave of popularity brought about by vanquishing Tamil extremists. In my thinking, for the average Sinhala man/woman on the street (& some so-called educated as well), every Tamil is a terrorist or at least a sympathiser but that race card is no longer an ace. It’s yesterday’s news. However, fortunately for GR, the Easter bombing brought in a fresh fear, the Muslim terrorists, & who other than the Rajapakses have the proven track record of dealing with terrorists? The jury is still out when it comes to the question who was behind the Easter massacre but certainly it was only GR who benefited from the terror attack.

    The armed forces are revered by the masses & the Rajapakses claimed them as heroes, even those accused of war crimes & deserters turned gangsters. To the adoring public, the atrocities committed by the armed forces were collateral damage & journalists who were murdered or simply disappeared were just traitors.The case of kidnapped school kids was dropped & high ranking thugs in the forces are given prominent positions. The minnows are set free, probably in fear of letting the cat(s) out of the bag. The Rajapakses are obviously insecure & wants loyalists around, so who better than those accused of crime & safeguarded by the state to be surrounded with? Will the future of SL under GR be a military junta?

      Lots of Tamils get hurt by these events. If Tamil people want to be significant part of Sri lankan politics they should abandon communal politics but think as Sri Lankan. First fight for causes common to to all communities then they will be seen as genuine people loving the country. Why they can’t raise their voice against corruption, lack of education , discrimination against wealthy and poor and so on. Ordinary Tamils will only votes to party that will give priority to Tamil causes indirectly becoming racist against racist.. Current Tamil parties including TNA capitalize on mild racist sentiment on poor Tamils in north. I think if they want to improve they should get rid of (Tamil) name from the party. I sugget Northern National party good name

      “To the adoring public, the atrocities committed by the armed forces were collateral damage”

      We learnt that from Human Rights champions George W. Bush and Tony Blair.

        The average American or Brit won’t give a monkey’s about their country’s armed forces, unlike ours. Many would like to see Blair & Bush hauled up before the human rights courts. It’s only Trump’s white middle America & white supremacists who condone crimes committed by their armed forces in ‘defence against terrorism’.

        Just because war crimes were committed by others does not justify the atrocities of our own & should not be condoned as ‘collateral’.

    i think the presidency should be abolished.In countries that are ruled by the PM there is no pardoning of criminals.It is the presidency that is the root cause of unnecessary powers given and was the creation of that megalomaniac JRJ.How come singapore and malaysia with PM only have flourished while we have been going down hill.It clearly shows too much power corrupts and to run a country efficiently you don’t need too much power.Only bad workmen blame their tools anyway.

    ps. singapore,netherland,switzerland,japan,germany,sweden,denmak,finland,canada,australia,NZ,all are ruled by prime ministers and are running very effectively.Why only we need presidents.

        US is what it is because of its vast resources.Compare singapore with 700 sq.km and ,5.5 mln people and US with 9.6mln sq.km and 330 mln people.Singapore is the most competitive economy in the world while the US is second.In infra structure singapore is no 1 and the US is no 13.GDP nominal per capita singapore USD 64000 and the US is USD 65000.In GDP(PPP) which is a better measure of income than nominal singapore is USD 100000 while the US is USD 62600 only.If a tiny country without any resources like singapore has achieved all this by beating a huge resource rich country,Sri lanka which is also a small country of 65000 sq.km without any resources(but much better off than singapore) and with 22 million people ,which is the model you prefer to copy,singapore westminster type prime ministerial model without term limits and limited powers or the US model.
        ps.1.power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely.2. a bad workman blames his tools.eg.sirisena no leadership potential at all whingeing that he could not do his job because his powers were curtailed by the 19th amendment or wiggy saying he can’t do his job because the 13th amndment is inadequate.3.patriotism is the last refuge of scoundrels.Lee kuan yew never talked of patriotism but just focused on transforming the country.4.One deed is worth a thousand words.

    The way LOHA Dayalan exolains it, it is a typical LTTE murder in which parents or mature adults did not give a child for soldier recruiting. So, they killed a child by shooting at him.This is typical jungle Justice of terrorist or Mafia gangs. It is most probably, Yahapalana Law enforcement and justice system have prosecuted armed forces personnel for that. So this govt had to release him.
    Everybody pretty well knows that overseas living LTTE RUMP has become NAKED CLOWNS IN FRONT OF THEIR INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY. NOW IT IT NIT THE USA, BUT IT IS BRITAIN which UNHCR and they will in advance tell (even USA told to Mangala) what will be happening. I think Yasmin Sooka will advance with this. What happened to that African-Tamil Lady who happened to be accused, her hubby, as a Terrorist. She may have weight. Or get the Boston Legal professor to analyse this.
    I heard, govt may present the rebuttle and LTTE rump would stay the same.
    I heard some LTTE Tamil organizations (e.g. Canada) want to come back and start life in the Tamil Homeland. I don’t think the govt will allow that.

    Here is an official bulletin board material that was delivered by a straight shooting minister in mid 80s in the parliament of a developed country.

    In this quote, the minister was reminding his constituents about the real meaning of have not regions.


    We are not a ‘have not’ area when compared to Bangladesh, we are not a ‘have not’ area compared to Haiti, and we are certainly not ‘have not’ compared to Jamaica. We shouldn’t always be looking up; it’s very healthy occasionally to look at Haiti or Sri Lanka … and then we’re very ‘have’ when we do that.

    Bengalis are now feeling humiliated after hearing a report that their DNA were matched with many people in SL!

    Jamaicans don’t even want to walk with us if we ask them to train for the next Olympics!

    Even good people of Haiti are now saying “reste loin” in French (Stay away from us) to SL!

    Just in case if you wonder what SL did to Haiti, just ask UN for the reason why highly paid SL peace keepers (!) weren’t even good enough to do nothing in Haiti!

    If anybody is to pardon a convicted murderer, it should be the kith and kin of the murderer’s victim, for nobody else has the ‘moral’ right to pardon such criminals! The President should have paused to reflect on the detrimental effect such a pardon is likely to have on the victim’s family, it is a travesty of justice of the worst kind!

    After openly supporting the murderous barbarians of LTTE Tamils lost their moral high ground completely. The Tamil elite thought they were clever to promote the murderer Prabhakaran as their leader, hoping to eventually carve out a state for themselves in Lanka. That was for a few years an achievable target. The Sinhalese have a significant number of traitors who will do the LTTE work for money and that was used with deadly effect by the LTTE. Yet, in spite of this treachery Lanka was fortunate enough to have men like Gotaby and Fonseka and other military men who somehow destroyed the Tigers.

    It is in this context the alleged crime should be viewed. If true we cannot defend the crime, but when you have summoned the Devil to your side you have made a tryst with destiny you have morally forfeited your chance for justice. The winners of the bloody war cannot value lives of men and children who were likely to grow up to become LTTE members themselves. The British massacred the Argies (Argentinians) in the most barbaric fashion after they recaptured the Falklands. No mercy was shown to even those who surrendered. But the whole thing was hushed up because that is the way the victor works. Fifty years later the winner may develop a conscience and even make an apology, but for now, with the embers of the LTTE was still red hot, these are but armchair discussions and the Lankan government has the upper hand. After all there was never anything more barbaric than the LTTE in Lanka until the Moslems came up with the killers of Easter Sunday.

      Jay Chambers,
      Tamils did not lost their morals even after LTTE lost its armed struggle. The morals of Tamils are not based on the LTTE’s military power, it is based on barbarism. and butcherism of Buddhist Fundamentalist state. The island of Lanka (Ceylon, Srilanka) is under Buddhist Sinhala Fundamentalism sponsored by Westernised Christianised Sinhala opportunists since 1948. LTTE controlled part of this Lanka for 30 years and even after the end of war cowardist Sinhala Buddhist opportunists need LTTE to govern this country. For example you couldn’t stop mentioning LTTE in your comment.
      Do you know what is barbarism? The massacre of innocent Tamils in 1958 by Buddhist Sinhala. Burning of Jaffna Library. Drilling of eyes of a prisoner. Feeding of a child and shooting him and drinking the blood.

    Sirisena also pardoned a murderer (who fled the country) and a terrorist in saffron robes. Looks like Sri Lanka’s leaders have a weakness to release murderers, while people sentenced for far lesser crimes languishes in our jails. We are cursed with corrupt leaders, who cannot do the right thing when it comes to upholding laws and setting an example in this country.

    Why did the 9th person PRETEND to be a lone pedestrian??????? That’s the clue which gives away, that the group who shouldn’t have been there in the first place was either LTTE terrorists or spies who spied on behalf of LTTE. Everyone knows how LTTE terrorists recruited child soldiers for invading Sinhala-Buddhist Sri Lanka.
    /
    Don’t compare the Indian terrorist Sudhaharan to the soldier who fought for his mother land. Sumanthiran, Sumbandan, TNA, etc must be in jail for high treason!!!!!!!
    /
    Remember Tamils have come to Sri Lanka without native Sinhalese consent. Tamils who did the roles of aggressor , attacker and invader started the illegal and criminal war. So don’t complain, just accept the consequences!!!!!! And GR is worth every vote!!!!!

      Wrong doers is punished for bad karma

      Why then Mahinda Rajakashe family is free from all punishments even if prima facie evidence regarding that Thadjugeen murder is revealing ?

      Myths have been sowed in order ballige puthas be able to reap the harvest and ruin this nation.
      :
      Even if almost everyone is born in to Religion- by BUDDHAGAMA- that is millions of miles away from TRUE TEACHINGs OF LORD BUDDHA

      Rajaakshe ballige puthas would mislead the grass eaters easily, by licking the BO TREE on regular basis, but not having done the least ot he POOR but to their family.
      Today, they have made U TURN in terms of the election pledges that they made on the election podiums. Not a single step is taken going by the election manifesto.

      Not being biased, Rajakashes have not done the least compared to 100-day achievements of previous govt. Sirisena the lap dog of ballige putha Mahind patta pal hora can enjoy few moments tellign this to the nation.

    Lankan Tamils have endured massacres before :

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_massacres_in_Sri_Lanka

    This one is different – proved in court, perpetrator forgiven by the leader of the
    nation.
    There are those still in captivity, under the PTA, but that is another story – one of them died recently in jail, after 26 years.

    what else can one expect from a war criminal who not only in 1989 destroyed never to arise Sinhala so-called wayward lost youth?
    now he’s shitting and shitting mortally afraid of the many war crime tribunals he’s scheduled to appear in.
    RJ@1. then during the 30-year-old cursed war, his murky name again crops up prominently to many a cowardly deliberate gunning down of the white flag carrying UN Sponsered surrenderees.
    RJ@2. he’s nothing but a coward of the highest order, who shines only when he’s holding powerful positions otherwise he’s nothing but a meek afraid mouse a big baiya Gulla.
