Now, Avant Garde’s Nissanka Senadhipathi Wants Permission To Travel Overseas

Avant Garde Chairman Nissanka Senadhipathi today sought permission from Court to travel to Singapore. If approved, he will be the third person in the case permitted to travel overseas despite the court imposing a travel ban originally in the Rs. 11 billion case where Senadhipathi, and several others including former defence secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa has been named suspects for making an unlawful profit from a floating armoury.

Senadhipathi has requested for permission to travel to Singapore for medical treatment. The request was filed by his lawyer and the court will take up his request on Thursday.

Early this month, Colombo Chief Magistrate Gihan Pilapitiya granted permission to Major General Palitha Fernando to travel to Doha, Qatar to attend an athletic seminar.
Prior to that, the court granted permission to Gotabaya Rajapaksa to travel to China, also for a seminar. They, along with Senadhipathi are currently out on bail in the case.

In August, the Commission to Investigate Allegations of Bribery and Corruption filed a case at the Colombo Magistrate Court against Rajapaksa, and seven others including Fernando and Senadhipathi. The eight suspects have been charged for allowing Avant Garde to maintain a floating armoury, thereby resulting in them making an unlawful profit of Rs. 11. 4 billion.

    These fellows used Avant Garde to sell unmarked weapons to terrorists and now are being allowed to go abroad and find ways to cover their tracks!?

    What’s going on why is the Avant Garde story slowly being toned down!?

    What happened to all those un marked weapons where are they now?

      Senadihpatti has his loot stored in off shore bank accounts in Singapore and wants to go there to move the funds looted from Sri Lankn people to a safer haven!

      The Colombo Magistrate who gives bail to travel overseas to all these corrupt politicians and their cronies is Goon Gota’s man and has been paid off. Colombo Magistrate needs to be INVESTIGATED!

      Why is FCID so slow in its investigations and why has there not been a single conviction of a big fish?
      Ranil WIckramashing who is corrupt warned FCID to be 200 percent sure about the cases against Jarapassa family and corrupt politicians, and delayed prosecutions against the jarapassa family and cronies..
      Now corrupt Sira has slammed the FCID and Bribary Commission.

      Ranil and Sira are BOTH CORRUPT and collaborating to delay the investigations against corrupt cronies and politicians of the UNP and SLFP.

      If his head who is believed to be the kind of all high profile corrutpions was allowed to leave the country, why not this man would be his argument.

      Pleae dont allow these men to leave thecountry.
      Srilanka is not that powerful as being painted to be.

      If all these would seek Refuge in a country, the island would not be able to get them back for any kiind of investigations.

      That is the truth.

      We perfectly, know the gravity of abuses money frauds being mapped by BasiL and others, but none of them have been able to be exposed today, since those laws while them being dual citizens may affect on them in this regard.

      Crystal clear, those assets claimed by Basil in the states, should be focused … and all these should have been confistacted in order to pay off the debts directly.
      That way we could relieve the public not BEING subjected to HIGH taxes imposed on public.

      Please allow Duminda Silva – who is one of the key convicted criminals in recent months be allowed to leave the country…
      Any other criminals too that are need to travel aborad- then people will realize finally, there is no rigarous actions being taken by current adminstiration too, against high criminals. We must work to the manner Germans Singaporians do with the laws. Else, we cant prosper this nation.

    Sir,

    It could be yet another, extremely vital security conference in China.

    Please let him ago. It is a matter of “national importance”.

    Cheers!

      “It could be yet another, extremely vital security conference in China.

      You got it wrong.

      Please read this from above:

      Senadhipathi has requested for permission to travel to Singapore for medical treatment.

      Maybe he needs financial support from anyone who could contribute towards his medical treatment.

      Please let CT know if anyone is willing to chip in a few quid as you say “Please let him ago. It is a matter of “national importance”

        Native,

        Our thrice blessed nation must be very well off, no?

        All criminals & politicians seek healthcare in expensive, Spa-like Singapore hospitals. Everytime time they have a common cold.

        It begs two questions?

        1. What the heck is wrong with public health services in our country?
        2. If we are so wealthy to seek healthcare in Singapore, howcome vast majority of our people go to bed hungry at night?

        Cheers!

          The problem is how you would have to filter the corrptive from the non corruptive of the nation.

          Remainder would be not even 5% of the population.

          We cant apply any advanced steps being taken by developed countries in the reduction or elemination of abuses/corruption in the country.

          So long entire society would not be subjected to paradigm shift in terms of their attitudes towards indispensablitiy of everyone s contribution if at all tangible changes to be achieved.

          “What the heck is wrong with public health services in our country?”

          It is not fit for the purpose.

          So are all other state-owned institutions.

          How did we arrive at this situation?

    No worries Senadhipathi, our Gamarala MY3 has opened the flood gates for all the rogues.

    No need to appeal, just take the passport and fly out. Someone, before the election said that he will close the airport and apprehend all rogues and murderers. It looks like we have voted for the dummy who appeared alongside MARA on the election day.

    If you find our President Mithripala Sirisena anywhere you go, please text us. We are all waiting for him, it looks like he got lost somewhere in Thailand.

    I have been many europe and asian countries and I am currently residing in Germany. Last month I had a conference related to my work. When I got a break and while having a chat with the locals two of them asked, what are famous more than tea in srilanka? And an other lady asked me are all human rights and other conflicts with minorities over in srilanka?
    I was speechless and concluded that, the recognitions the world outlined about srilanka are: INDUSTRIAL EXPORTS (TEA, RUBBER) AND THE CONFLICT WITH MINORITIES. I was ashamed that without these two the world will not know where srilanka is. All sinhalese should be ashamed and try to earn some own recognition without stealing minorities’ blood and drink like tea.

      Other than numbers sinhalese dont have anything big in srilanka. Their heart is shrinked their knowledge is tiny even their economy is poor without the contribution of minorities. Give the gov. to minorities to rule the island will become Singapore within five years.

    INTERPOL will know all the movements of their stolen cash. Just invite them to get involved and they will speed up all the cases and bring back all the stolen money of this Rajapaksas criminal network…

    What happened to all the unmarked weapons!?

    Who were they bought from!?

    Who were they being sold to pirates/ terrorists!?

    When will this information be made public!?

    The people voted this government in to take speedy action what is happening!?

    Sena Adhipathy also wanting to go overseas for medical treatment (just like Yoshitha Rajapaksa did) is yet another strong indictment of the sorry standard of medical practice in Sri Lanka. Even the Colombo Magistrates agree that it is so when granting permission for rogues to travel overseas.

    Yet GMOA and SLMA are strongly opposed to Indian doctors coming to practice in Sri Lanka. The monopoly on poor standards and high charges will continue.

    Majority of the members of both GMOA & SLMA are strong Rajapakses’ supporters or sympathisers or possibly on the Rajahs’ payroll.

    It looks like Senate I path too is going to apply for Chinese citizenship like his Guru Gotha. The three US citizens ( Gotha, wife and son ) having gala time in China.

    Ordinary Sri Lankans have only one citizenship and most of them do not travel out of the provinces they live.

    Justice and Buddhasasana Minister Deal Dasa Rajapakshe hit out at National Movement for Social Justice Convener Sarath Wijesuriya, challenging him to an open TV debate.

    He made this challenge during the ‘Sangramaya’ TV program on Swarnawahini last night.

    Deal Dasa Rajapakshe said that Wijesuriya has made two baseless comments on him. He has said that Deal Dasa will not let any one of the Rajapaksa family be arrested while he is Justice Minister. Also, Wijesuriya claimed that the judiciary will not be independent till he is the Justice Minister,

    As long as Ministers like Deal Dasa,Vajira Abeywardena,John Ameratunga,Dilan Perera,SB Dissanayaka,and Mahinda Amaraweera Yahapalanaya is courting disaster.

    Why every crook does wants to go to Singapore for their medical treatment. I thought Sri Lanka has some of the best doctors in that region (Except for those who does politics as their primary task). This must be investigated as to why this is a norm among all these crooked shady characters.
