MR’s BIL, Former SriLankan Chief Missing According To Wife, PRECIFAC In A Dilemma

The Presidential Commission of Inquiry to Investigate and Inquire into Serious Acts of Fraud, Corruption and Abuse of Power, State Resources and Privileges (PRECIFAC) is in a dilemma on how to deliver summons on former SriLankan Airlines Chairman Nishantha Wickramasinghe after his wife had told a group of officers that she had not seen nor heard from her husband for the past 3 years.

A group of officers from the commission had gone to Wickramasinghe’s Mount Lavinia residence today to deliver summons requesting him to appear before the commission on the 30th of this month to record a statement on allegations of financial irregularities at Sri Lankan Catering Ltd.

However, they were in a for a rude shock as the wife of Wickramasinghe had told the officers that she had not seen nor heard from her husband for the past 3 years.

“Now we are in a dilemma on how to deliver summons on the former Sri Lankan airlines chief to appear before the commission” one of the commission members said.

The former first lady Shiranthi Rajapaksa‘s brother, Nishantha Wickramasinghe is facing a barrage of accusations on issues ranging from mistresses, corruption, racketeering, Fraud to deception and gross abuse of power.

Recently a Board of Inquiry (BOI) appointed by the government found shocking details of corruption running into billions of dollars, manipulations of service contracting, recruitment of unqualified staff and major security breaches at Sri Lankan Airlines under Wickramasinghe’s tenure.

A panel headed by anti-corruption advocate and senior lawyer J. C. Weliamuna and Chandra Jayaratne found instances of gross abuse of power by former chairman Nishantha Wickramasinghe whose penchant for young air hostesses cost the debt-ridden airline even more problems.

The BOI said they had found malpractices, related to re-fleeting of the aircraft as well.

The BOI report, had recommended criminal investigations into the entire re-fleeting process and have noted instances where former chairmen Wickramasinghe, a brother-in-law of Mahinda Rajapaksa, should be prosecuted.

    Allowing the judicial process to be mocked and undermined is a poor
    reflection of the country’s legal system and governance – Yahapaalanaya or whatever. That it is done by those in responsible positions close to those who wielded high power in the last regime makes it all the more regrettable. Are we re-assuring the world we are indeed, as many in the outside world suggest, a Failed Society, for sometime now?

      Hmmm… this “Naki Manamaalaya” is going to be a fugitive now , another different type of a comedy drama to be entertained , what is next ? wanted dead or alive !

        Srilal,

        Greek tragedy continues.

        Yes, “Naki Manamaalaya” was not only totally unqualified for that post, his tenure was a terrible burden for this impoverished nation’s taxpayers. Yep, running into billions.

        Meanwhile a lot of hospitals operate without lifesaving drugs. While a lot of rural schools do not have funds to build a rudimentary toilet for Sri Lanka’s kids.

        What these corrupt cronies have been doing to this nation’s is a grave crime. Nothing less.

        Have we learned from it? Nope. Not at all.

        Now we have Arjuna’s fully unqualified, jobless elder brother running a valuable national asset, Sri Lanka ports authority. Dhammika Ranatunga is already sitting there. Very pretty. As if it is his family wealth.

        Same deep rooted, much hated corruption is back within 10 months. Arjuna, the arrogant prick has not even bothered to explain the appointment.

        I have no idea why Sri Lankans tolerate this kind of daylight rape of our country’s treasure by these corrupt cronies.

        Where is the fury? When are we going to see it on our streets?

        Cheers!

          While the FCID tangos wildly with hundreds of cases without bringing a single one to court and closure all the culprits will disappear!

          This FDIC seems to have method in its madness. It should pursue a single case now and bring it to a close to show the tax payer who is funding it that it can achieve results.

          Otherwise this media show of Ranil Wickramsinghe who is busy bailing out corrupt scoundrels like Wimal Weerawansa who has 2 or 3 passports and promoting a CORRUPT POLITICAL CULTURE of IMPUNITY for POLITICIANS should be shut down.

          Nv and Ben H ,

          i think it’s all got to do with the bureaucratic (red tapes) system and the old guards , i doubt either MY3 or Ranil would directly interfere with the law and order matters ( not sure as to how Ranil intervened in Booruwana’s pass port case though ) .

          in the AG department , both AG and SG happened to be Rajapaksa sycophants, there’s nothing much MY3 & Ranil can do about those people as they would refrain in poking their fingers in internal matters of the AG department.

          i think we the public masses should inform the general public about the real status of the AG department , only FM SF had the guts to speak out against the den , bravo SF.

          Does the Interpol look for persons to serve them a summons to make a statement to a kangaroo comission in a Banana Republic?

          I am afraid that something much stronger is needed.

          Thanks for the contact information of Interpol.

          Maybe we should inform Interpol about the correct name of KP?

        Naki Manamalaya became king of SLanken NOT BECAUSE of qualifcaitons, but because he was ITIBONikkas brother.

        MR should be even worst than a rabid dog to have fallen to this levels not being able to see it beyond. HOw come a leader take decions of the kind without thinking about the future. As you say, Srilal, Mafia King was ousted, but his next works stay connected.

    I will never trust a Sri Lankan government until and unless it successfully prosecutes a single person on corruption charges. Yahapalanaya is also supine bunch of dumbasses who after having crystal clear proofs failed to arrest a single individual who wielded real power in the corrupt MR government.

    All these are eyewash !!

        Maalumiris,

        “I don’t think they had ANY proof to begin with. They only SAID they had proof so that all Idiots would get so excited and vote for them “

        Have you ever bothered to read a report called ” Waliamuna” by any chance ? if not , just go to archives of CT and read it . The report had been submitted in very early part of the year .
        investigating , scrutinising and giving heaps of media coverage are some of hall marks of this regime but going after and prosecuting the real offenders is a total different story . the question is, do they have the political will to go ahead with the arrests ?

      I can understand your impatience Treehorse, but I do get tired after so many countless comments like this.

      ‘crystal clear proofs’-Are you privy to this evidence? Investigations take time. Innocent until proven guilty remember? I would rather people face punishment after a thorough process in a court of law rather than being thrown into jail randomly, like it was in the former regime.

        @maalumiris , I concur with what you said man, Thumbs up.

        @Dr.Gunasinghe

        Habeas corpus is it? A simple case i.e How about Wimal and his wife’s passport saga?

        Actually how can we expected Law and order when the Law and Order office is not in order. Case in point, Police legal division fails to represent IGP when he was overseas. How abysmally dysfunctional can this get?

        This is precisely even with crystal clear evidence, goons are confident that they can get away crimes given the ridiculous amount of time to bring a case to hearing. I think Judgement could would only delivered posthumously given the old age of the accused.

        Dr.Gunasinghe ,

        Well ,generally speaking , your assertion is valid . but waiting for crystal clear evidence to emerge to make an arrest is a joke . there are tons of evidences to make arrests the whole Mafia family , but nothing is happening . in April, only Basil was arrested on some lousy charges , yet he did not spend a single day behind bars , arrangements were immediately
        made to transfer him to the hospital , then onwards the comedy drama continued for weeks , for strange reasons Basil couldn’t walk or talk ;hence , he was kept in an ambulance where the magistrate had to walk to the ambulance and witness by himself as to how the dying patient was doing , i remember a similar drama when Duminda silva was in custody , at that time too ,Magistrate had been informed , that Duminda silva would be in an imminent danger if he was to appear before the courts ; thus,he was spared even standing before the magistrate for few minutes. after a few days, Duminda dared to walk to Temple trees with thousands of his supporters to see the Mafia king in broad day life .

        Gota , KP , Lalith Weerathunga , Anusha Palpita , Gamini Senarath , luxman H , Namal , Basil, Yoshitha ,Shiranthi , Shashindra, wimal et al still walk freely as if nothing happened .

          Its what happens when backed by democracy of anglo american and hindian.
          they are all in it for very long time even before the phone call from John Kerry to Mahinda. bLiar is out but he blames others who are dead as the real culprits who advised him to take the lead on Iraq. Its called Confidence to Rule the world no matter what people say because the now hidden assets for 5 generations to come is more alluring…..

        Dr Gunasinghe, obviously you have no idea regarding the evidence ordinance. May be you are a country doctor prescribing kotthamalli.

        If a person cannot produce evidence how funds were acquired to acquire/purchase The Deniyaya Palace, the latest scandal, there arises a legal presumption that funds were acquired illegally. He/she can be arrested and detained, for a reasonable period of time. If evidence is not produced to show that funds were acquired legally, he/she will then be prosecuted.

        Similar cases abound during the last 12 months. But no worthwhile arrest / prosecution can be seen.

        You are far off the mark doctor. Treehorse is not.

      I think stupid folks to be blamed for them to go mad that deep.

      Even today, as Ben makes it very clear, no fury is seen even if many would have been raped on broad day light. This folks are used to go eating thanakola. They would never raise the question why.

      Unless, MY3 did not risk his life – nothing would go against Mafia King co. From the last election, we got it clear, that every 2nd should be fool in this nation. Yes, Arjuna to have appointed his foolishi brother fo rthat position is a big blunder, but today, we see at least some sorta fairness WITH almost anyone and everyone being investigated. Even the alleged ones in the killing of that small child – has guts to come forward and file a case against CID. Was this the case under Mafia man ?

      If current rule really want to find the man – Itibonika `s brother, aka Naki Manamalaya or anybody could be found easily. Current regime to have more courage and strength is what many wish looking at their snail moves.

    WHY Still Nishantha Wickramasinghe’s wife did not make a complain to police???.
    Did any white vans took him to MOKSHAYA, with blessing of other Machaan?.
    why not check with Mohan pee risk. he is capable to find missing guys like police dogs.
    Or Any of the World class Air line Hired him to develop their air line as he was a difficult to find type of CHIRMAN.

    better to check in Dubai tea kiosks, some time he is doing his old job, making tea.

    You cannot charge someone for having mistresses and committing adultery unless the wife brings charges and that is still a civil issue and not a criminal issue. Then you might as well charge current VVIPs for breaking sodomy laws because they are either openly homosexual, or homosexuals married to lesbians and covering up theire homosexuality. Remember what Buddhika Pathirana once alleged? ONLY if he used his official powers to provide State favors like promotions or jobs or buy gifts at state expense or take the mistresses around at state expense does it become a problem. Sagala is a close “Confidante” of PM. Do you know what it mean when people say “Close”?

    Or you all Rowyell kowllege bois will pretend everything is ok ? Look at the Christian Affairs minister a DieHard UNP senior and his recent escapade. That is not a crime to be investigated but a personal viagra and ecstasy based problem that will only embarrass him but not a recent to fire him.

      Sri Lakan investigators only find absconding people only when it suits their purpose. KP, they found him from somewhere and brought here, not for investigating his crimes, but to blackmail him and to siphon out all the LTTE reserve funds from their accounts.

      Absconded Cecilie, they refused to find, because it was convenient to them to siphon out all her foreign currency accounts at the foreign source. The criminals allowed to keep 5%(still a fortune) for taking the trouble to collect this fortune. A normal husband would have by now gone on media begging her to return from wherever she is as he is missing her so much, but not this corrupt lot, they would hardly miss their spouses.

      Add to this queue MR’s BIL. Would our bulldog’s ever find him to serve the summons? Probably not.

    I agree with Treehorse. Let’s have a few rogues, focus on them with speed and urgency, like this good for nothing individual who has ruined lives of young girls, the already bankrupt airline and the lives of honest and hardworking staff. Find him, even if he is hiding in UK/Europe/or any forsaken part of this planet, and prosecute and punish him accordingly.
    This will send out the clearest message to the rest of the hoodlums who are still free and not been brought to justice!

How come his wristwatch was stolen from the house where he was living in Ratmalana area, about two years ago and recovered amid publicity. I think the both the lying wife and cheating husband should be arrested and put in the court for obstructing the due legal process to investigate charges against his corrupt management of the airline.

    This pervert can easily be caught. Publish his photo in the newspapers and on the websites and brothels and soon you will have info on his whereabouts. The pervert kept two rooms permanently for his sexual encounters at the Cinnamon Grand, and this ,may be a good place to start. Also his mates like Cabraal, Mahindapala and KASumanabalu may have some info on this guy as these perverts may have some videos of the guy’s sick exploits with young females.

    Dr. Gunasinghe: I agree investigations must be conducted and “crystal clear proof” must be there to make a person convicted and punished. What have you got to say on (1)expenditure of Rs.600 million to buy “Sil Redi” (Devotees Clothes) to be distributed during the Presidential election. Two have been charged and granted “Bail” while postponing the case to next year. Can anyone who is charged for “misappropriation” and “misuse” of Public Property be granted bail. The two accused in that case should have been taken into remand custody as per the law and kept in jail until the next date of hearing. Without any shame the CID goes to another court (Magistrate) and request the lifting of the travel ban on the accused in the same case. That Magistrate has now called for explanation from the CID. (2) Avan Garde case: How and why did AG withdrew the case in Galle courts when the investigation report and the ASG and two other ASG recommending in writing to prosecute on existing laws of the country. It was given in writing to arrest six persons including the former Secretary of Defense. Why this case is now investigated on a different footing viz. “Money Laundering”. (3) In the case of Sajin Vass, what have the Authorities done? Just get a statement to make him a “State Witness” and even grant him to travel abroad. To begin with can we know in WHAT COURT CASE HE HAS BEEN MADE A STATE WITNESS? So, what do we see here? Isn’t it so far clear, as “Treehorse” says, these “Investigations” and “Court Cases” are nothing but an eye wash and cannot be trusted? You will see many more of these types in the very near future. Isn’t it better to know in advance, so that you and I can avoid any “shock waves” emerging in our physical body. That is good for health.

      Let’s all wait with bated breath until even ONE of these criminals are convicted and jailed. Until then we will have to put up with the “eye wash” and pretend that Yahapalanaya is living up to our expectations.

      Or is the alternative a series of street protests and other non-violent protests to show the Yahapalanayas that their pretences are being exposed and that “you can’t fool all the people all the time”.

    How can we TRUST a government in the conviction that it isn’t sleeping but doing its job for which it was elected?

    VERY SOON, the President will lose all the goodwill and support he received from the people of this country, if his government is unable to apprehend all wrong doers and give them their just desserts. That is the government’s duty towards its people.

    Already Arjuna has lost respect, never to regain it. Very soon it will be the President himself who will be in that boat.

    We heard that he is a regular visitor at a gym in battaramull area. Oh please he should have thebgutsbto surrender and face the situation in the same way he il treated the cabin crew when they didn’t agree to satisfy his needs. Question his pimps too, head of Hr the good for nothing big talker who was asked to walk away from cabin crew interviews by the chairman at the latter part of chairmans career as he also wanted to tackle the cabin crew for his own pleasure. ( wonder whether the hr planning and analytics manager dula doesn’t satisfy his needs properly, cheating the decent hubby Niro in Sampath bank)

    What about the former CEO kapila? He used company money to run political campaigns along with Chanaka olagama the (pimp 2- senior manager HRD and business parter’s lover boy)

    Mind you, these culprits are so cunning and they will do anything to manipulate and erase all the evidence especially head of hr.
