Nepotism And Regime Manipulation At Law College Colombo

Sri Lanka Law College Principal S.W. Rodrigo has been instrumental in manipulating the recently concluded Final Examination results to ensure his own son, Oshada Rodrigo emerges at the top of his batch, Colombo Telegraph learns.

Oshada Rodrigo has achieved 78% and two subject prize, Colombo Telegraph learns.

He was previously selected by his father, the Principal to attend seminars and other events from Law College. Rodrigo Junior is presently the Education Secretary of the recently formed Sri Lanka Nidahas Shishya Sangamaya, a student union affiliated to the SLFP.

The inauguration of this new student union at Law College Colombo took place in Parliament with the principal participating.

Principal Rodrigo is best known for previously welcoming President Mahinda Rajapaksa’s son Namal, now a member of parliament with betel leaves when the young Rajapaksa entered Law College without qualifications for admission. Namal Rajapaksa during his tenure as a student at Law College managed to obtain almost 100 percent for several subjects at the internal examinations of the College, the answer scripts of which were corrected by Principal Rodrigo himself.

Namal Rajapaksa also topped his Law College batch, amidst major allegations of examination fraud.

He was granted special privileges on the few occasions when he attended Law College.

According to sources from Law College, Namal Rajapaksa hardly ever sat for examinations at Law College. So far, there is no disclosure of how Namal Rajapaksa entered Law College even though Principal Rodrigo has consistently defended him.

Principal Rodrigo is tipped to soon be appointed a judge of the Court of Appeal or Supreme Court.

      This is very poor reporting by CT. NR didnt top his batch nor did he top any subjects. He only got a 2nd class pass for his exams. The accusation against him was that he sat the exam in a special room. Which he did with MP akila virj kariyawasm and ms hirunika premachandra and other such VVIPs also present. I was there and have seen the result sheets published on the notice board. This is bad reporting. Completely inaccurate

        What happened to that innocent chap who pointed out the favorations given to Namal by this so called Principal? Is he alive? Anyway, he is a great boy.
        On changing the Govt this Rodrigo should be brought to books and punished life imprisonment for misusing of his office.

    Yakko! These people are supposed to be the backbone of our legal system in Sri Lanka???? I am sure not everyone was invited to meet the Dad. After all, not everyone thinks cheating and copying is a sign of power.

    How far we have fallen. Even the gutters flow with clean water when it rains. This is like the cess-pit !

      I agree with Upul wholeheartedly. Please also note that Sri Lanka is being made the cess-pit of Asia thanks to the “Royal Family” and what are we doing about it? Surely we who know whats right and wrong, have back-bones. Count me in for support.

    The Law College was a respected institution, established in 1873, and respected as the gateway to practising law in Sri Lanka. Maintenance of high standards was a sine qua non that gave this establishment international respect and recognition. These continuing allegations will not only question those accused of transgressing but also run the risk of tainting ALL those who have recently passed through the portals of the college. What a damnation on all our legal luminaries!
    Allegations must be proved and those found culpable should be named and shamed.

        Do you think the reputation of this institution has finally managed to equal that of the Indian ones.

        Congratulations.

        Is it true that over 70% of the population is Sinhala/Buddhists? What an achievement for the majority.

        Brilliant.

    Did the father enter Law college legally or thru’ the back door. I am sure he had crept thru’ the rear door, making use of late Dr Covin R de Silva’s request in the Parliament of Srimavo’ regime.

    Papa MR having excelled in “gimmicks “(Gilmarts” ) taught his lessons to his sons to become “firsts” in Sri Lanka at least since MR has no control outside. At this rate his eldest “Clown prince” NR will soon make a record by being youngest PC. The next in line captained Sri Lanka Ragger Team surpassing all senior players. The youngest is to crown as the only Sri Lankan astronaut. All these at the expense of tax payers money!! These epitomize the rotten system that we are living in.
    . All these culprits should be stoned to death in public in Galle face Green.

    Chandra Seneviratne – I totally agree with you. But what about the other goons in the family. The assets that they hold in srilanka and abroad should be taken over by the state. Thereafter they should be stripped before being stoned to death.
