Namal Rajapaksa Makes An Appearance At Courts Today

In a rare sighting today, Rajapaksa ‘prince’ Namal had attended Courts in the wake of calls being made upon the new Chief Justice to disbar him.

Namal had attended the Fort Magistrate Court to appear for Tissa Attanayake alongside his senior, President Counsel Kalinga Indratissa earlier this afternoon.

Tissa Attanayake was released upon being granted bail today by the Fort Magistrate after he was taken into custody last week.

    Who would have thought that this would ever be possible?

    Politicians need to know that NOTHING IS PERMANENT

      Yes, Namal Rajapaksa, should be given his day in court. He has his side of the story.

      Interesting to hear his side of the story in this dispute.

      I suspect A little bit of Africana jeanettics in the blood way down the line??? It is showing in the boys I guess after many generations. What a pity best to do a DNA test.The Analyst is always correct what ever the twisters say. Connection between the humbug king and Africa? Has anyone else suspected too.

    Simple…give him a case to attend to and see if he can win it! Or how about getting him to work on the field on some CRIMINOLOGY case? Bet that would show him not to run after Vice Chancellors and Uni Deans every time he thinks of gaining a degree!

    The picture tells the whole story.

    It looks so much like a stage photo and looks so obvious that, it is anything but a genuine lawyer’s look.

    The case filed by the law student on the day of the examination where air conditioned comfort was given with special personal computer should be investigated and made public, for the people to know the real truth behind this synthetic lawyer.

    It should do a world of justice to the genuine lawyers, who really struggle day and night to pass out the examinations, under normal conditions.

      The photo shoot is probably staged, but how ironic that the book might be turned to the page containing the excellent Nihal Sri Ameresekere’s “Overseas Corporate Structures, Which Hide ‘Real Owners’: Foreign Business Empire of a Sri Lankan Entrepreneur?”.

      You cannot make it up!

    Let Namal R agree to an impromptu public lecture at the CPA, ICES, Marga Institute, OPA or some place of similar recognition and speak on
    defence of the charges against his father’s familial regime. His father – Yes! We know he went as a lawyer – always dodged the issue
    when asked to. MR simply was not upto it. I don’t want to pre-judge Namal. I hope he will gather the courage to reject the popular notion of the public that he is a fraud.

    A sure-fire way to establish if Namal’s results at Law College, and his potential as a PhD candidate is to follow through with an exemplary suggestion made by Ramon Therese Fernando in these columns a couple of days ago (https://www.colombotelegraph.com/index.php/former-law-student-requests-cj-to-disbar-namal-rajapaksa/#comments).

    Ramona’s brilliant suggestion was based on assessment by “indicator of his law-IQ.” I support whole heartedly Ramona’s proposal.

    What better way to do that than by a formal IQ evaluation – a standardized process of international repute, that will, I am guessing from Ramona’s own pre-judgment based of “law-family” attributes, will help establish Namal’s credentials beyond any doubt – and at the same time save the dignity of Law College, let alone the whole University system, that has come under seemingly undue fire!

    Perhaps, a complementary effort in establishing Namal’s propensity for academic excellence will be to get St. Thomas admin and Education Dept to release this respected MP’s academic performance in the pre-Law College period – that would again help establish Namal’s (and the Ex-President’s) credibility/credentials.

    As an MP Namal has very substantial responsibility to all citizens, and so these unnecessary doubts and rumours should not affect his ability to conduct his official responsibilities at his full capacity. In the interest of supporting this respected Public Servant, St. Thomas and the Education Department should help by publicizing Namal’s exemplary academic records without any hesitation or delay.

    Namal’s school/class mates could chime in too in this effort to support of establishing Namal’s credentials.

    I am sure Namal and the Law College President (past?!) will convey their personal gratitude for Ramona’s great proposal in this regard.

    I volunteer to appear free if anyone could come forward to charge this fraudster. I would love to undress this Bas.. in court. He probably will run to Seychelles to their luxury Island at the thought of defining himself.

      Bravo Upali J. If our country’s long cherished values of judiciary and governance are to be protected frauds like this must be publicly exposed and weeded out. If he is planning on a PhD, he should be able to accept the challenges to debate in public. Unless, of course, he has a Pingan Hodhana Dosthara title in mind.

      Here’s hoping someone will take the challenge.

    It is a pity that he did not keep his feet on the ground before. Had he done that a lot of problems could have been sorted out for him and quite others. I for the moment am not asking to forget the past but at least this rugger playing etc. etc.kid has learned his b___ good lesson to be a normal citizen of this country.

    It is a shame for the law profession to even let this story going on with Namal baby’s academic capabilities.

    The way things went with this family, it will be not a joke this man got his credentials as a lawyer with someone else did the exam for him and probably the Principal of the law college at that time.

    It will be interesting if anyone can post mroe information of if he really came to classrooms and what was his scores on those exams etc.

    why drag the CJ into this jokers degree.The law society should conduct an investigation and if they find that he was given preferential treatment such as special room,someone inside with him,his not under the supervisor who is common to others sitting the exam etc then there is plenty of grounds to take the degree off him.These chaps should understand that ill gotten qualifications cannot be kept just as ill gotten gains.

    Also charges should be framed against him for cheating and fraud,also others who helped him.If these are not done and we allow professional qualifications to be tampered with like this then we are on the way to a banana republic with guys like mohan peiris and namal etc.It is important to make an example with them so that it is clear that professional standards have to be maintained in srilanka.If not done we can kiss goodbye to yet another asset that has kept the srilankan flag still flying high as our professionals are so well regarded.

    Namal Rajapakse is a lawyer duly admitted to practice law in Sri Lanka. He has the right to appear on behalf of his client and to support his client’s case before the court of law.

    If there are any irregularities in his admission,it is for the Ministry of Justice to inquire into this and debar him if these alleged irregularities could be proved.

    I appreciate this guy’s guts in coming to the bar knowing well that many in the legal fraternity in Colombo hate him just because he happened to be the much maligned son of an equally much maligned former President.

    I wish him well in his career as a Sri Lankan legal practitioner. As another legal practitioner of Sri Lanka and a life member of the Sri Lanka Bar Association, I warmly welcome the entry of Namal Rajapakse into active legal practice.

      What was the content of his address to the Hon. Bench?
      Did he just stand up and appear but was silent?

      The more one reads Naga the more convinced you are of his anti-UNP anti-TNA bias. “Lawyer DULY admitted to practice law in Sri Lanka”
      is the crux here. If one is familiar with the news in the public domain as to how Namal sat for the exam and PASSED (?) readers like Naga will not be as generous in their comments. It is quite telling both Father and Son have suspicions cast on how they eventually “became” lawyers. This hardly happens in the ordinary course of matters.

      Backlash

    When all these questions are asked about the credibility of his qualifications why no one has lodged a complaint .
    That is the correct way to do. RE register or DE register his name from the law register . To let him practice law or bar him from practicing law. Full stop.

    Take the bull by the horn not by just whining do the necessary guys. Is he a lawyer or a low yer.
    Is the man cheating?? Bogus low yer s should be barred from practicing law

    Finally the synthetic lawyer made a guest appearance in courts. However, he will be called upon to explain on the complaint made by Thusara as to how the final exams were conducted at the Law College and trust proper investigations would be carried out and if found guilty de-bar him.
