MS & RW Have A Secret Agreement With TNA To Release Tamil Political Prisoners: Weerawansa

UPFA MP Wimal Weerawansa today severely criticized a government decision to release a group of Tamil political prisoners, who recently engaged in a five day fast.

WimalCalling the prisoners as former LTTE cadres detained on Terrorism charges, Weerawansa today said he had reliable information that President Maithripala Sirisena and Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe had come to an agreement with the TNA and several other Tamil politicians to grant a general amnesty to the prisoners.

Weerawansa said that this agreement included some ex-LTTE cadres becoming witnesses for the state in trials which will be carried out against the military officers at the proposed Hybrid Court.

“This is a slur on our security forces who sacrificed their life and limb to save the country from the clutches of terrorism” he said

Weerawansa challenged the President and the Prime Minister to reveal how the government was going to release prisoners with serious criminal charges against them, without any judicial process.

The UPFA MP questioned whether the government was prepared to release other prisoners as well if they engage in a hunger strike.

Meanwhile the hunger strike commenced by the prisoners on Monday was called off on Saturday following an assurance by President Sirisena that the prisoners grievances will be met before November 07.

During a recent Cabinet meeting the President had tasked Minister Mano Ganesan, Prime Minister Wickremesinghe and Law and Order Minister Tilak Marapana to meet the Attorney General and discuss the issue and submit a report to him.

Meanwhile the TNA today warned that the party will stage a fast along with the prisoners if President Sirisena makes a u-turn on his assurance to the Tamil political prisoners.

          If the JVP fellows like Wimal Weerawansa who should have been in jail for the ’87-’89 insurgency is pardoned and allowed to engage in politics, then what is wrong in releasing those LTTE suspects (political prisoners), most of them actually do not have any case against them, only suspects.

      The kind of politics should be banned in srilanka. This man s views have no basis but twisting the mind sets of the vulnerable folks. His has no basis at all, just evasively he adds things. He cant grasp any kind of external affairs. This man should be subjected to questions to determine his knowledge about emperialism and external issues. Just becasue the bugger was abused by former president for his abusive politics, this man should not be given high grounds in lanken media. Please media men, just ignore this man so as former mervin de Silve. Who only seeks media displays fo rtheir publicity. Media men should see it right before being published the kind of issues.

      “Hope you will commence your protest in earnest, perhaps a fast onto death”

      I fully agree with your suggestion and like to add few things. The other 1st class patriots such as Mussammil, Weera Kumara Disanayaka, Gunadasa Amarasekara, Nalin De Silva, Gembanpila, Wasi Deva, Boralugoda Patriot also should join this “fast on to death” until Govt. change it’s decision to release Tamil Political prisoners.

      This time Saddarmadveepa Chakrawarthi will not be there to give “Glass of Thambili” as he has more and more visits to CID/FCID and Crimes Commission.

      I will make sure that one Lt. of Petrol and one Box of Matches available at the “Fast on to Death” stage for our biggest Patriots to use.

    Why should there be a secret arrangement when the law requires that these people are unlawfully detained and should be released forthwith. This fellow is an idiot. He should show concern for the 70 000 young Sinhalese who were killed and who have had no justice. Stupid fellow is stoking embers of a dying racism. It will not work.

      Don’t so sure that “It will not work”. It may work. Anyway, WW is betting on the fact that he has nothing to loose by trying.

      Also to be fair, you have to consider the fact that there are people who have committed serious crimes such as mass murder. Taking up arms against a legitimate state is a serious matter. I am sure the perpetrators knew full well what they were doing and what the repercussions would be. But they went ahead. Now they have to pay the price.

    Man, man, this idiot is really, really nuts. He and his bunch of thieves are real misery, and wouldn’t let this country move forward. The President, the PM and government want to speedily sort out and put behind all the bad issues which are huge drag on the forward march of the country and people. These issues sucks lot of time, energy, wealth and real focus of all which are not productive at all. Let the dogs shouts, the government should do its best to put the country on the right course for the people to have better life. These donkeys wouldn’t eat grass but wouldn’t let others to eat as well.

    Booruwansa 2/2 = 0, here are some of the International conspiracies (kumanthranas)

    1. Early Elections called by your MATTA MARA.
    2. MY3 standing as common candidate.
    3. People voting him as President.
    4. Ranil appointed as PM.
    5. Investigating Murders and Corruptions during ALI BABA REIGN.
    6. People breathing a heave of relief from White Van abductions by GOD FATHER GOTA.
    7. Recent arrest of Corrupt Customs Officers with the loot.
    8. Geneva Resolution.
    9. Sri Lanka regaining stature in the eyes of all countries as a free and sovereign state, unlike a brute dictatorship under the boots of MARA.
    10. Last but not the least, the booruwas of your likes being confined to the political dustbin with your TSUNAMI HORA MARA, GEMMAMPILA, DINESH GONAWARDANE AND VASU..DEAF..A.

    The only option left for you to overcome all above conspiracies and regain MARA Sri Lanka (MURDER,RAPE,CORRUPTIONS,EXTRA JUDICIAL KILLINGS & WHITE VAN ABDUCTIONS) ,is to fast unto death. Otherwise there is no way of saving your family,sorry Sri Lanka from disaster.

    Don’t worry there are still around 4 Million idiots, who can be tapped for your worthy cause, including DAYAN THE D…..

    Time to reverse folks from this kind of mentality and destroy the kind of preaching from our country.
    I know these village born and bred stupids are the cause of the down fall of SL ,
    Along the line there are educated Modayas as well who STIRS UP RACISM. They are the back bone Of these Racists elements.
    Mostly they are corrupt and looters of the National wealth.

    PM has the responsibility to wipe away this diseased country from the incurable/ curable disease .

      The simple reply is because this Wansa is Sinhalese and those “living” in Prisons are
      TAMILS – even Minister Rajapakse is prejudiced.

      Wimals activity is at the present juncture a favourable response to solving the

    I am not sure if there are no legal process is taking, the prisoners have to be left out of kept in unlimitedly. Further I am not sure how Wimal got out of the prison after the unbelievable crimes committed by JVP.

    Hello Wimal

    Didnt’ your government awarded government portfolios and harbored a number of leaders of the LTTE? So whats wrong in releasing the others,especially when those who have been kept in jail without a trial?

    He wanted and got general amnesty and release from cells for his former JVP cadres who were involved in rebellion and over throw of previous governments.

    He is disappointed in not being able issue diplomatic passport to his wife so that she could travel on state expense and do shopping in foreign countries.

    Machan Weere,

    What are you talking man… Didn’t you read Abraham’s take on this in CT?..

    In Batlanada’s eyes. these are not terrorists. They are freedom fighters.

    Otherwise Batalanada wouldn’t have offered them Self Rule …Right.

    If Poor Pira was not mislead at the time, these dudes would have been Ministers, Deputies, Permanent Secs and other Govt Officials in Eelaam…

    That is if Pira went for full on Westminster, like his buddy Ranil.

    I think Bodhi Sira should back off and let Batalanda do the right thing..

    And it may also help Sira in the long haul.

    Like making Dahanm Sira and Chathu Sira more acceptable to the Elite,and the Anglicans and keeping Kumaratungas at bay.

    There is nothing wrong in releasing political prisoners in fact the western world wants Sri Lanka to have a proper legal system in place where you cannot jail political prisoners unless the courts hear them and justice is meated out.

    If do not adhere to this Hybrid Courts are definitely comming.

    These are all thanks to the way the country was previously run with impunity by the MR Regime.

    WW is one of the most reckless and dangerous racists and religious bigots in our frontline politics. A street rabble rouser, without a past for political leadership, poorly equipped educationally to be a Minister. Still he was gifted with a “plum” Ministry – only for his populist cacophony in defence of MR.

    He did not fail to cream the UDA and the Housing Ministry where charges against him are many. The hoarse platform noises he makes now is to drown the anger of the people against his wife’s many rackets – including Passport fraud including impersonation. He miscalculates only if the country burns and is turned into a racial-religious bloodbath, he and his wife will be free of their many crimes against calculated thievery of the people’s common resources. He is one more reason what goes as Socialism in this country is simply a tool by conspiring politikkas to fool the hoi polloi. His politics is merely aimed to defraud the poor unemployed JVP types. His real goal is to make hay while the sun shines. He has succeeded very well there. Look at how and where he lives now from his Kadawatta days of only under ten years ago.

    If he and wife escape long prison terms, it will be only because of the
    weakness and bargaining element in our justice system – an unfortunate blot in the fair name of our name which the Mahinda Rajapakse regime turned into an unwelcome culture.
