Opposition Leader Sajith Bats For Gota – Throws Weight Behind Alleged War Criminal Shavendra Silva

Newly minted Opposition Leader Sajith Premadasa continued to bat for the Gotabaya Rajapaksa Government yesterday by coming out strongly in support of Army Commander Shavendra Silva who was slapped with a travel ban by the United States on Friday for his involvement in war crimes during the final stage of the conflict in 2009.

Sajith Premadasa

In two tweets in sequence Premadasa claimed that the imposition of a travel ban on army commander Shavendra Silva and his immediate family was regrettable and unfortunate. “He is one of the heroic field commanders who spearheaded the national effort to eradicate terrorism” the new Opposition Leader said of the man accused of leading one of the army’s most brutal divisions in the final stage of the war. The 58 Division that Silva commanded has been accused of indiscriminate shelling of civilians in the No Fire Zone and extra-judicial killing of captives.

While it is unclear if Premadasa speaks for the UNP, he added that “all of us stand by him and his family at this hour of need. As a country we shall always stand with the war heroes that brought about an end to 30 years of terrorism.”

Neither of the tweets included a reference to the victims of Silva’s unit’s brutality over a decade ago – thousands of Tamils who voted in droves to elect Premadasa as President in November 2019. Gotabaya Rajapaksa’s performance in most of the North and East was abysmal, with the victor in the November election barely getting as many votes as his brother Mahinda did in 2005 and 2010. Since his election defeat Premadasa has been on an islandwide tour of the districts to thank his voters but is yet to step foot in the North and East where he won by the highest margins.

The travel ban against Sri Lanka’s highest ranking military officer – Lt. Gen. Silva is also acting Chief of Defence Staff – is the first time the world has taken action against a Government official for gross human rights abuses committed during the war.

But Colombo Telegraph learns that Premadasa’s support for Lt. Gen Silva dates back to August 2019 when President Maithripala Sirisena came under crushing pressure to avoid appointing the controversial military officer as commander of the army, replacing Lt. Gen. Mahesh Senanayake.

While the bulk of the UNP stood against the appointment at the time, making private interventions to President Sirisena, Premadasa made a special effort to convince the then head of state that the appointment was fine by him. At the time Premadasa was staking a claim for the presidential nomination and waging war against his party leader and Sirisena’s bete noir, Ranil Wickremesinghe. Premadasa advocated strongly for Silva’s appointment as army chief because his wife Jalani and Silva’s wife Sujeewa Nelson were close friends. Mrs. Silva was a regular customer at the Jaal Salon owned by Premadasa’s spouse and also a dear friend of the couple. At the time, Silva used his wife’s UNP credentials to convince Premadasa and others in the Government that he was not a Rajapaksa associate and backer.

Premadasa who took up the position of Opposition Leader by vowing that he would “not play the role of a traditional opposition but support the Government to implement its policies” has remained true to his word. Earlier this month he stood by mutely while the Constitutional Council rubber-stamped Gotabaya Rajapksa’s appointment of Justice Nawaz, a judge who has been charge sheeted by the Bribery Commission on corruption charges as President of the Court of Appeal. He has refused to stand up agianst the Government’s witch hunts against his own MPs and former ministerial colleagues or speak one word for law enforcement officials who have been persecuted by the new regime for simply doing their jobs to investigate heinous crimes against journalists and civilians between 2005-2015.

Political circles are abuzz with speculation that President Rajapaksa is in possession of compromising material that could embarrass Premadasa and his family, which has won subservience from the new opposition leader. Authoritative sources told Colombo Telegraph that Premadasa was regularly in touch with President Gotabaya Rajapaksa and uses Gotabaya backer and publisher Tiran Alles as an intermediary to the new president.

    As I see the political scenario, I think the way is clear for Ranil Wickremasinghe to contest at the general election. He will have to revive the UNP with young educated people and have a close touch with the TULF. At the saame time Ranil should be at a distance with Siddharthan, Vijayakala, etc. Sajith has demonstrated his stupidity and how will he administer Sri Lanka. There are hounds behind Sajith to ruin the country. If the European democratic countries will give a ban travel to other military heads holding top posts, it is then Gota and the Buddhist clergy will learn a great lesson. Rajapaksas have already left a legacy of coronavirus by way of leaning towards China in addition of importing Chinese goods. Mattala Airport & Hambantota harbour are two locations through which coronavirus could spread which is a possibility. Ranil should make use of this opportunity to lash at Sajith Premadasa.

      Ayathuray Rajasingam,

      Once you told that you’re Tamil who don’t agree with LTTE. Now clearly you hate Sajith showing fake pretexts but obviously for him supporting the forces who helped get rid of one of the most dangerous terrorists existed then.

      BTW, why Mattala Airport & Hambantota harbour are the only locations where Corona virus could spread while Colombo port and Katunayake airport with more activities can be more dangerous in that sense?

        ghk,
        Even now I don’t agree with the LTTE. They are not freedom fighters as they have crossed the line of being freedom fighters. No sooner Rajiv Gandhi was assassinated, I lost all hopes on LTTE. Sajith is pretending. Why can’t he give an explanation as to why his father R.Premadasa gave arms & ammunitions to the LTTE and why did his father accompanied Babu. Sajith is immatured and recognized at international level. Chinese are not only in Mattala Airport and Hambantota harbour, but also in Colombo where number of their business is carried on – e.g. SPA along the Marine Drive & in the suburbs of Colombo. Why should Rajapaksas lean towards China – is it because of the loan China is providing. There are more. People give a perfect answer at the General Election. Whatever it may be, Ranil never bowed down to tactics of China, other than accompanying unwanted characters like Siddharthan, Vijayakala, etc. Ranil should not have entertained Sajith at the very inception. Now with the travel ban on Shavendra Silva, I think Rajapaksas will begin to beg USA or will give their consent to sign on the Millennium Agreement. After all, travel ban is an internal matter of USA.

      You are spot on. Sajith is too immature impetuous and a brainless moron. He is power hungry and is not a patch of his father.He is a toddler who wants a lolipop. His political career will soon end and then he goes into oblivion

        Sajith has no other alternative but to support Gotta. Soon he will go down with Gotta in the sinking ship clinging on to its mast. What a disgrace an idiot born to honorable past president and hardworking man his father RP. Sajith has created plenty of chaos he needs to step down from politics.

      Colombo Telegraph,

      Sajith Premadasa knows the SB math.

      Silva is a hero for the Para-Sinhala who defeated the Para-Tamil separatists, who consider him to a war criminal, while downplaying the war criminal actions of the Para-Tamil separatists.

      Now that the New Tribe, the Rajapaksa Tribe, is in power, the saffron clad monks, who are allowed to have their hegemony, and require the imbeciles, mean IQ 79, to prostrate to them, the monks have expressed displeasure at the travel restrictions on the “Hero”, war criminal or not.

      Malwatte and Asgiriya chapters of Siyam Nikaya Chapters expressed their displeasure over the travel restrictions imposed on Army Commander Shavendra Silva by the United States of America.

      Anunayaka of Malwattha Chapter Venerable Dimbulkumbure Wimaladhamma Thera said that it was inappropriate that the United States imposed such a travel ban on the Army commander and his family members.

      QUESTION:
      How come the Para-monks have the time to express displeasure in everything Political but never when issues of criminality, racism, religious intolerance, thuggery, injustice happens.

      ANSWER: The Para-Sinhala Para-Monks, follow Buddha-Agama, “Buddha’s Religion “, that is a distortion of Buddhism and is an insult to the Buddha, and per this cult, the imbeciles prostrate to the monks, who were recruited as child monks, given the Monk training in their backs, and grew up to be senior monks, the Mahanayakas.

      @Sajith “…. he is one of the HEROIC field commanders who SPEARHEADED the NATIONAL effort to eradicate TERRORISM”.—- Can you believe this crap of the CENTURY that the GOVIGAMA MAFIA ELITE gangsters and their “Paid-BUM_SUCKERS” in the likes of Sajith and the SINHALA BOW-WOWDDA RAAJYA proponents ( JHU Champika, Gnanasara and the Sinhala Racists and their likes) are coming out in thousands shedding their camouflage and exposing their nakedness of them being low-life shenanigans. Sajith P belongs to the same criminal entity that brought about disasters after disaster through the political manipulations from the time we had the so called FAKE independence gained from the GOVIGAMA CLAN”s masters in the WEST (The Zionist countries / The British, US & the EU & their allies ). The first Govi Prime Minister-D.S. Senanayake did was, the launching of the ANAGARIKA ideological divisive politics in separating the citizens in the lines of ethnicity, religion and race-The WAR ON TAMILS. This went on for the next 72+ years up until present day by using DECEPTIVE METHODS to keep the population blind and divided to whats going on behind the scenes. The actors behind the curtain are all belonging to one single group who are “by-Default” to support the Govi Ideology (Racism) and to any garbage or any moron who comes as the LEADER of the nation from the crappy GOVIGAMA ELITE Family BLOODLINE. That’s why for the last 72+ or even 100 years history, NOT a singe GOVI ELITE family member has been FOUND GUILTY to any crimes they committed at national or at personal level-The Master Race. There will none who can find a GOVI ELITE Criminal who’ve been served the JUSTICE of the system. So, Sajith putha is squarely standing in their court and he must play by the GOVI rule and he will have to support the criminals the GOVI MASTERS white-wash and put into the field to play DIRTY POLITICS.

        These “HEROIC FIELD COMMANDERS” just did what they are being told by the ELITE GOVI CRIMINAL Masters. The reason of all the famous moronic guys who are supporting and protecting the “Our Soldiers/Rana Viruwa” who are complicit in massive crimes (Human Rights abuse) is to give a message that the GOVI MAFIA is to hold the high positions in the system and the RANA VIRUWAS are the cannon fodder which will be used to fight their WARS and Killings. The WARS can be anything that they are being taken into for POLITICAL/Financial benefits for the clans and its members. So, the LOOTING of the country goes without any hurdle and it was confirmed in the recent past by the SINHALA BOW-WOWDDA Racist slut GUNADASA AMARASEKERA. This Iguana looking dead body who is still breathing and propagating hate as an ART at this dying age said “What if MAHINDA RAJAPAKSE steals the country??? He saved us from Terrorism”. For the Racist sluts like him, what the Tigers did was terrorism and the violence that the Sinhala BOW-WOWDDA racists doing from 1915 and onwards are GANDHI JI’S Ahimsa even though it costed many thousands of innocent human lives and destructions to property and wealth ofthe victims. The Agenda to which the RAJAPAKSES and the entirety of the GOVIGAMA MAFIA FAMILIES are tied to is the World WAR 3 annihilations. Already, CHINA is feeling the WW3 as the entire Chinese scientist, communists, and all the experts still have no clue as to how CORONA became a pandemic and that they are unable to do anything with all the might available them. So likewise, the Govi criminality has been pulled into different directions of the FUTURE conflict by playing DOUBLE GAME with the major Crackpot powers in the GLOBAL arena who are playing with CORONA risking the lives of billions of people.

        The BAN on the criminal Military figure SHOWENDRA imposed by the Global Criminal Elite-US can be a game played to favour the US citizen GOTA to gain more support in the dumb-fool Sinhala majority to amplify the Sinhala racist greatness. This way they can show the world that the reaction of the majority has won them a simple 2/3rd victory (as they have planned it). The present day political system which is criminalized and weaponized by the ELITES to gain control for corruption ridden rule, they DO NOT NEED VOTES to win an election. All they need to do is to design a climate to favour the MAFIA and then conduct a ceremonial ELECTION and then they will manipulate the VOTES and the COUNTS and bring about the numbers by magic to say that the favoured GOVI MAFIA SLUT has won. The opposing parties which are also controlled by the same MAFIA accepts the “Verdict” and publicly declares that the win is legitimate-its people’s verdict. Thus the ELITES easily take over the system and keep the real ones who could rescue this country from its abyss, at bay. Almost all the Politicians who are playing in the same field have been allowed to get into corruption and the evidence for that might be used as the weapon to shut them down, or to silence them. The Audio recording saga of Ranjan is the best proof of this game. Ranjan did not produce any Audio of any GOVI RULING ELITE slut and this proves yet once again, that the MAFIA are in FULL CONTROL and they are untouchable to any law or rules, a total impunity. The GOVI garbage slaves in the likes of GNANASARA are totally clueless of how this game is played by using monk-ey figures like him.

    Don’t worry. This is only an “Arm Twisting Tactic” of a “Bully”. Now the “Message” is clearly given through Savendra Silva to Gotabaya Rajapakse. Why? “SIGN” the “Sofa” and “MCC”. If not, this is what is waiting for you. Why the importance of getting those “Agreements” signed? The US has been given “NOTICE” by the Philippines to wrap up their operations and “GET OUT”. The US knew of this in advance. They have now “CREATED” a new set up and named it “South Asian Region” (Dakunu Indeeya Kalapaya) in the Asia Region with assistance from India, making Sri Lanka the “HUB” for their operations. GR the President has been “Installed” with that in mind, and he cannot now turn back, because he has so many “SKELETONS” in his cupboard. Even his “Renunciation” of US citizenship remains a question mark. He (GR) has been given six month notice to sign those agreements. If he “Doesn’t ” do it, we will see the next “ACT” in this “CIRCUS”. Await more “FUN”

Probably he and his brothers will enjoy a life with no recollection of anything that happened in the country. MR when one looks at him is not sure of what he is saying and the teleprinter cannot do much. Gotta tries to flash a smile that hides his sick heart.

      Douglas ,

      “Why? “SIGN” the “Sofa” and “MCC”. If not, this is what is waiting for you. “

      You, (Gota,)will be quarantined inside the Temple of the Tooth, where the Mahanayakas will abuse you, just like they did to the child monks. However, the Mahanayakas prefers young Samaneras.

      Malwattha and Asgiri Chapters express displeasure

      http://www.dailymirror.lk/breaking_news/Malwattha-and-Asgiri-Chapters-express-displeasure/108-183212

      Anunayaka of Malwattha Chapter Venerable Dimbulkumbure Wimaladhamma Thera said that it was inappropriate that the United States imposed such a travel ban on the Army commander and his family members.

      He said that Sri Lanka was able to end terrorism that plagued the country for decades due to dedicated commitment by the war heroes, and vindication of them in whatever manner was unacceptable to Mahasanga.

      He said some forces act against Sri Lanka at that juncture counting on false propaganda by some NGOs and the separatist organisations.

      He said it was a laudable act that the victory against terrorism could be achieved under President Gotabaya Rajapaksa as the then Defence Secretary and Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa as the then President. ( What about imprisoning Sarath Fonseka for 2 years Mahnayakas?)

      Mahanayakas: How come you have the time to express displeasure in everything Political but never when issues of criminality, racism, religious intolerance, thuggery, injustice happens?

      No Kalunangio, please understand the situation. As Sam Fernadon and Leelge malli have made it very clear… do you think that sinhala people would ever support SP or JVP if they would not lick the back sides of the sinhalaya even forgetting any criticals situations would have been bound with MINORITIES. That is how the sinhalaya society is made.
      Rajakashes harvest on it.

    Sajith is doing the right thing.If he does not support the army commander he will be committing political suicide.This man won the war with the breakthrough in pooneryn after which the LTTE fortifications in kilinochi fell like a pack of cards.I think he was just following orders from gota where any human rights violations took place.Before that he had a good reputation.

    one reason for this may be because sajit too has skeletons in his cupboard.he has been haphazardly doling out the money to temples through the cultural fund like as if the money belongs to him and not the taxpayer.President has ordered a probe into this which is like the sword of damocles over sajit’s head.also with the power struggle going on in the UNP sajit won’t defend people who may be ranil’s supporters.the power struggle is very damaging for the UNP.They can’t fight back as a cohesive opposition party.Also people will wonder if they can’t govern their own party will they be capable of governing the country.Sajith should split away from the UNP just like the SLPP split from the SLFP.The two main parties since independence SLFP and UNP,their days are numbered.

    Sri Lanka has been served on its own plate this time. When Canadian Ontario Premier applied for visa during Rajapakse President – Gota Defense Sec period, he was issued a visa. When he arrived at Katunayake he was turned back from the airport without allowing him to enter the country. USA has served SL on the same plate Mahinda-Gota team served Canada, but in a more decent way by informing SL in advance.

    If SL is so sure that no human rights violations were committed why not appoint a Judicial inquiry with foreign observers from UN and prove the innocence?

    The ball is now on SL side. Shavendra is now an accused. As per the laws of any land an accused is only free if he or she is proved innocent. Hence its time for SL to appoint a Judicial inquiry with international Jurists as observers and prove Shavendra has not committed any Human Rights Violations.

    In 2015, Old King, being unable to run the country, had conducted the election two years ahead. Ranil went to Temple Tree House at 4:00 AM, to assure Old Royals’ family safety under Yahapalanaya. Old King gave the TTC keys to Ranil and ran away even without picking the slippers. During 2018 NCM, Ranil negotiated with Old King to take over the power. But Old King called Ranil at TTH and declined to accept it, by fear of family safety in peril. When NCM debate was going in Parliament, Old King stood on the doorway and watched what was happening inside. Then he left without voting. No Royal Family members voted for NCM. It was defeated by Royals against Ranil’s wish. In September 2018, after Old King and Ranil returned from India, the October Revolution was launched. Ranil fooled all Western Diplomats and willingly handed over the power to Old King. Some SLFPyers went to Old King and asked to resign. Old King’s answer was “Who is going to take care of my Family’s protection?” But TNA and other minority parties brought an end to the coup by a Quo Warranto. But Ranil was worried about Old Royals safety and continued to search for methods to leave the government in the hands of Royals. So Yahapalanaya, in coalition with Chitanta, deigned the ISIS attack on Tamil Churches on 4/21 to create a panic among the Balangoda Veda Sinhala Buddhists’ mind. It worked. King won the election. Ranil handed over the government one year earlier than it was due for reelection, to ensure the Royals’ protection. So the minority Party SLFP was seated on power. Then the new immigrant President appointed as PM, a man who had rescinded his MP position by resigning from his legitimate political party. Neither Ranil nor Vaalaiththodam, who hold the majority, but willingly sitting in opposition, did not question the appointment of PM, in same manner, they didn’t question the citizenship of president.

    Americans denying Visa to Savage is being seen as threat to Old Royals protection, so it is blown out and used to achieve the protection. Colombo Media has been reporting the possibility of a deal between King and America. But, neither UNP nor JVP was questioning the King’s dual citizenship. Questioning would have jeopardized his election and Royals’ Diplomatic protection, to achieve which the election was framed as about Lankawe’s sovereignty. Vaalaiththodam said that he would not question the citizenship or go for court case as he would be winning the election. This is apparently not an Opposition Party candidates’ talk. An opposition party candidate is expected to use all opportunities to defeat his/her opponents. These are not the reason for the surprise of all Sinhala Political leaders on America’s denial to entry to Savage. Ponny, who was an equal leader of the war like King, is also banned by US. Ponny is a resident of USA and his family is there. Son Prince, the synthetic lawyer was turned from Russia, denning entry by unloading from the plane. Udayanga was returned from boarded plane and he was hiding in Dubai until the end of Yahapalanaya government. Jaliya is kept in USA as a material witness against King. But now America banning Savage is made to look like as complete surprise for Kandy Ayatollahs political bosses as well as Diyawanna Lake palace Royals too. The outcome of this could be unpredictable. To be precise, the last election and the coming election (not sure if that will happen even by next October or November) are only about the protection of Old Royals. Old King has gone and returned from India. Ranil is about to leave to India. Yet, there is no need for a “March Revolution” this time. But if the Indian negotiations go failed this time too, another stunt will be released by Royals & Ranil to maintain Royals protection, in the name of Country’s sovereignty and security. So another 4/21 or Digana riots or 1983 Pogrom are expected.

    All Sri Lankan must come forward to protect General shavendra Silva as he has not fight his personal war. It was against ruthless barbaric Prabhakaran. Why I say saw towards the end he went against his own people. Collateral damages is unavoidable as US Government is always said when fighting a war.Those who talk about shavendra , never talk about 30,000 odd innocent salvage from the ruthless Prabakaran’s custody at the last stage.If Shavendra has a travel ban how many General and officer in US forces must be in the jail for ruthless killing all over the world,but they live happily with their families with all the fringe benefit.
    New president came to power only on this promise to save the country nothing else.It ishis prime duty to protect the country.He should not bow down. MCC must reject wholesale, while giving notices to pull out the other two agreements. It can’t be an issue to him as he is no more a US Citizen.

The Sri Lankan Government has expressed their dissatisfaction on this decision to the US Ambassador. Under such circumstances, BP who says that he is happy should be treated as an ungrateful traitor and condemned.

      ” Sinhale (aka Sri Lanka) “

      Moda Bald Eagle, please learn Balangoda VedaLE history properly and know the meaning to the Sinhala Words. SinhaLE means the blood of lion. That means the blood in Sinhala Buddhist has is, 25% lion’s blood, 25% Bengalis blood and 50% Tamil Nadu, Pandyan Kingdom girls’ blood. This myth was created by Telugu pundit Mahanama. Sinhalese are not Modayas to believe, unlike you that their ancestral woman slept with a lion or all rowdies married only Tamil women. So they have abandoned the Mahavamsa which has only 2500 years of mythology, but they have switched over to 30,000 years mythology, “The Balangoda Veda Buddhist Wamsa”. Now their new Chronicle called “Balangoda Veda Wamsa” has stories emerging from 30,000 years old, the year presumed earthen shells found in Balangoda was left behind. Don’t undermine the pride of the Kandy Ayatollahs and the Sinhala Mahajan’s pride by subjugating them to forcefully accepting Mahanama’s SinhaLE theory.
      Ehelepola captured Tamil King Sri Vickramarajasingan and handed over to British. The 6000 Sinhala Mercenary went from Kote captured Tamil King Changilian and gave to Portuguese. Dom Juan, to sleep with a Portuguese servant girl, wrote of the Kote Kingdom to Portuguese. After all Kote was created by Tamil General Alahakoon to protect Colombo trade lanes with Kotchi from Jaffna invasions. Old King, to deposit $18B in Dubai, Bellerose & Seychelles banks, wrote off the Colombo Pong Cing to China. Ranil, to make brave speech at Oxford against the 200 years old past European, imperialistic history, wrote off Hangbangtota to Communist China. After all, while these have indication of Uncivilized (anagariga) Balangoda Veda Buddhists’ Aapa Diplomacy hallmark, why swore the Europeans?

    There is no point in blaming USA for their decision. They are hypocrites who use any situation to their advantage. We should blame Portuguese, Dutch and British colonial parasites who brought Dravida slaves and dumped in Sinhale and Native Sinhala stupid politicians who gave citizenship to these slaves who became Stateless to live in Sinhale.

    Ungrateful uncivilized ‘Para’ people ‘Bit the hands of the people who fed them’. Sinhala politicians who decide to give citizenship might not have expected such a barbaric behavior.

    All the leftist in the word including Sri Lanka Hate USA. so why should we clamour to go to USA. Most of the leftists family members are in USA. The Banning of Travel may a tactical game by US to ensure the Victory of GOTABE by mobilising Nationalism. I do criticise the US Travel Ban, but in diplomacy and politics. it is very difficult to interpret decisions or news releases. It is like Koide yanne? Malle Pol.

    This is what the Yakkos want. Third class Sri Lankan politics. They talk about sovereihnity but never address the core reason for the ban. This guy Shavendra is a war criminal suspected of genocide. Is that accepted practice in this country? Using the dictator of the Phillipines as your role model is nothing but the crass thuggery of a goon squad. These are the hall marks of a uncivilized barbarian society. More commonly called Neanderthals even though this gives them a bad name.

    It is not a Wonder as RW protected Gotha and all those who committed War Crimes. Sri Lanka has defied the World, and UN.and Gravity. It is a free fall but parchute is there to help. Mighty Sri Lanka is a World beater and you challenge Sri Lanka at your Peril. Now the World knows what the Tamils face. Let us see whether the US , te World and the UN buckle.
    US Ambassodor has it seems assured that she will convey Gothas stern warning to State Department have it overturned. So US “s crdible evidence that Shavendra is Guilty of War Crimes goes up in flames under threat from GOSL After all Gotha is an American Citizen so he has a lot of Influence. Might is Right.

    Lankawe appointed a committee to delay the MCC(probably an idea of the other cunning fox, Old King). The committee had four months that is well over the predicted April election, in which Royals would have used American bashing again. Now, after Savage’s ban, the American bashing technique is at odd with America. Earlier, America had warned not to wedge between American – Lankan Population just for election. So Today the committee has reported King, three days after the banning of Savage, prematurely. The untimely report sounds like Kandahari’s children. So still we don’t know about its nature. It is unlikely Colombo Media talk about it.

    Sajith the Presidential aspirant sometime in the future says all of us stand by the War CRIMINAL and his family at this hour of need.
    Now the World knows that perpetrators of STATE TERRIRISM since Inependance have defied the World and it is time to take action. The first casualty is Gotha who is on DEATH ROW

    Anyone interested read the court hearings on Udayanga case(Daily Mirror). In one word “HILARIOUS”. Loo and Odor of Silly Lanka. A certificate needs to be filled for any amount more than 25,000,IN THIS CASE IT IS MORE THAN 7 MILLION AND YET IT WAS NOT DONE. When the judge questioned the CID answered “we have no idea , we are new”. The lawyers appearing for Udayanga seized upon this to deny remand and set him free on simple bail . sham. Legalizing the illegalities of Rajapaksa men . This is what Iron Man promised as no indepedent Judiciary.

    Why are you not censoring the racist comments pedalled by Eagle Eye and S.C.Pasqual as per your policy?

    The same applies to some others who are abusive towards Sinhalese as well..

    The opposition leader standing for his country’s commander who is targetted by separatist and pro ltte lobbies worldwide is a racist ? What does CT want him to do? Join with TNA and US and accuse him of killing innocent prabhakaran ? I guess the moron who runs this site supported ltte during war

    Let’s have YAHAPALANA II with Sajith, Sam, Sum, Karuna, Ranil under GR and show the world we care a damn about Human Rights or Western Democracy. Let GR and army chiefs like Savendra Silva. lead us to unity and prosperity.
