Parliamentary Debate On The CJ: There Wouldn’t Be Time For Me To Speak – Undelivered Speech

By Rajiva Wijesinha –

Prof Rajiva Wijesinha

This was not delivered as there wouldn’t be time for me to speak, but this is what I would have said.

Both this resolution, Mr Speaker, and the manner in which it has been pursued, make very clear the need for radical reform. We have long known that we have an illogical Constitution that confuses all sorts of political principles. Sadly we have not taken seriously the crying need to change it wholesale, not simply engage in piecemeal reforms.

Nowhere is inconsistency more obvious than in the relations between the three traditional branches of government. Underlying this inconsistency is a failure to ensure accountability, despite the claim that power belongs in all instances to the people. The Executive is accountable in that it submits itself to democratic elections every few years, but the period of six years that is prescribed, and the provision, based on Westminster norms, of having an early election, make this accountability less than perfect. And the system of elections we have for the Legislature makes a nonsense of accountability, since that requires a closer relationship between constituencies and their representatives than the preferential vote system makes possible.

With regard to the Judiciary, there is almost no accountability. Over the last year I have tried, in pursuing action on our National Human Rights Action Plan, to suggest that the Judiciary lays down norms with regard to its activities, but replies when received were not positive. The Secretary to the Ministry of Justice got no reply when she suggested that the Chief Justice convene a meeting on sentencing, and the Institute of Human Rights was not allowed to proceed with a training programme on this subject. Given the gross overcrowding in our prisons, the failure of the Judiciary to act as requested is most depressing.

Depressing too is the failure to institute codes of conduct. The report of the PSC suggests, even on the best possible interpretation, indiscretions that should never have been perpetrated. It is true that many have been responsible for such indiscretions, but in the absence of strict guidelines, that are carefully monitored, a culture of propriety is hard to sustain.

I would have hoped that the Judiciary would draw up its own guidelines but, if this does not happen, it will be necessary for Parliament to do this. The judicial power of the people is exercised by Courts set up by Parliament, and therefore it is our responsibility to draw up guidelines for the exercise of such power even while scrupulously refraining from interference in decisions. It is best then if we leave it to the Judiciary to enforce those guidelines, and only ensure careful monitoring through the financial controls exercised by Parliament.

We should therefore institute Judicial Norms through binding rules to

  1. prevent any judge sitting in judgment in cases in which he or she has any interest (To deal with the Chief Justice buying a flat from Trillium while judging their cases. It is clear she understands this was wrong, inasmuch as she withdrew, immediately after the impeachment resolution, from that Bench)
  2. remove the absolute power of the Chief Justice to allocate cases, and instead set up a panel consisting of the three most senior judges. No changes should be made except by the panel in consultation with the original bench, and in consultation with the entire Supreme Court if allegations of bias have been made (To deal with the Chief Justice replacing the Bench hearing the Trillium cases with a Bench headed by herself)
  3. prevent any spouse of a judge accepting office from government except in the case of those already in government service. No judge or spouse of a judge should be offered or accept office from government for five years following the judge’s retirement, except for appointments to mediation boards and such task bound assignments (To deal with the appointment to high positions of Mr Kariyawasam)
  4. have the Judicial Service Commission appointed either by the Minister of Justice or by a panel of the three of the six most senior Supreme Court judges, with provision for appeals regarding appointments to be addressed to a separate panel of the other three (To deal with allegations of arbitrary actions by the JSC)

We should also institute internal investigation systems within the Judiciary if judges violate judicial orders (To prevent situations such as occurred when the Chief Justice was given a substantial discount on a purchase from Trillium when there was a Court Order enjoining that the highest possible price be obtained for these).

We should also institute rules with regard to the Assets and Liabilities Act to

  1. Ensure immediate remedial action when the Declaration is not make (To avoid situations such as the realization now that the Chief Justice did not submit a Declaration for 2001)
  2. Redraft the form to ensure that manipulation of assets is detected (To prevent concealment of funds by emptying accounts just before March 31st each year, as is alleged was done by the Chief Justice)
  3. To allow for random checks on the accuracy of Assets Declarations by an independent body, such as the Auditor General’s Department or the Bribery Commission, though with greater institutional safeguards regarding the independence of those institutions (To prevent accumulation of misleading statements as seems to have been the case with the Chief Justice)

Given what has been reported, it is clear that the ‘moral conduct of an exceptional degree’ expected from a Chief Justice that the Committee believes is necessary was not forthcoming. But of course the high standards enjoined by the Committee are expected also from Parliament, and we need measures to ensure that as well.

In that regard our failure to amend a Standing Order that violates all judicial principles is regrettable. I gather that the Standing Order was created in a tremendous hurry, like the judgments of the Courts recently and the PSC Report itself. This tendency to simply react to a crisis without looking to deal with underlying causes has created tremendous problems for the country in the last fifty years, and I hope very much that we will instead reflect more carefully, both now and in the future, without hasty decisions and institutionalizing ad hoc measures.

At its simplest, the Constitution talks of proved misbehavior being grounds for removal of judges. However the Standing Order that is meant to ‘provide for all matters’ relating to an address for removal of a judge does not mention proof or the need to prove, but talks only of defence and disproof.

It is for this reason that comparison with the position in the United States, or in the Philippines, where the Chief Justice was recently impeached, is misplaced. In the Philippines there was a prosecution, spread over several days, with Senators voting like a jury on what had been placed before them, both by prosecution and defence. Our Standing Order however requires a PSC to investigate and report but makes no mention of the establishment or proving of charges.

Given these flaws in the procedures adopted, it will be difficult to vote for this resolution. The PSC report itself follows the maxim, in discussing the first charge, that ‘the appearance of bias…. is sufficient to taint a decision’. Sadly that maxim was not followed in other instances in the report, which is an inconsistency that further taints the conclusions reached.

This is unfortunate, because an inquiry conducted on the lines of that in the Philippines could very easily have led to similar conclusions. That is why, since one should not condone the actions of the Chief Justice, it is equally difficult to vote against the resolution.

In abstaining on this resolution, Mr Speaker, I can only hope that we move swiftly on the institutional and procedural reforms that this country so urgently needs. I have spoken to Parliamentary officials, and written to you, about convening the Committee to amend Standing Orders, which moved so quickly during the first three months of this Parliament and was then suspended because of a trivial dispute. I trust that we will not allow such personal considerations to stand in the way of the changes that are so badly needed. Thank you.

    I wonder if RW has declared his assets. If not he should do so immediately and set an example for his colleagues in parliment.

    Parliment has become a den of hooligans who dont know what they are doing. Good example is yesterdays vote was not on the order paper. The resolution passed was to appoint a select committee not to find the CJ guilty. Now the uneducated fool who is the speaker is reccomending something quite different from what was passed.

      Safa,

      Even if he would have done so, as you suggested, these idiots would continue the way they handle everything, not respecting the others as seen yesterday^s vote.

      Now we have been officially on a state that we everyone could name it as – Anarchial State governed by MR.

      All these influencial educated politicians should rally round to go against the rulers –

      I have always commended Rajiva Wij.. but I wondered why he is sitting with the UNEDUCATED- as he should leave the bunch. The other fellow Dayan Ja should also join hand with the educated to show that the ruling UPFTA is NOT AT ALL acceptable the manner they govern today.

    One has but sympathy for this son of the popular Sam, a distinguished
    Clerk/Secy. General of Parliament who was teacher to many young MPs – including the present Regent. Not the Son of Sam of the dubious NYC variety that took the headlines years ago. I hope that unenviable remark Lyndon Johnson made of Ferdinand Marcos about the used FL will not be his fate. But there is little doubt his time is up. Oxford Alumnis have a welcome place in the Mother of Parliament. In the Mirable of Asia it is what Parliament is sometimes referred to – a Congress of Baboons. The urbane and learned Rajiv fill not fit in here. Back to the British Council after a fling with a crowd that has not heard of the word gratitude Aristotle tried to impress on his students so much of.

    “……since one could not condone the actions of the chief justice……………”
    So, you have found the CJ guilty as charged – you totally beleive the allegations.
    You think that the PSC (what was left of it,after four members walked out) did agood JUDICIAL job.
    Please post the complete investigation report on this blog so that we too will be convinced.
    As you are convinced of the CJ’s guilt,you should have voted for the impeachment.
    Abstinence is the refuge of a coward – one who ‘keeps a backdoor open’.

    Commendable sentiments! However, can you ensure that those who really matter see/hear what you are saying? If not, what’s the use? You still have to prove to us all where you are REALLY at and also lend credence to the possibility that you are no longer an undisputed apologist for the regime now having second thoughts.

    My dear Prof. Rajiv W,

    My congratulations for your bravary,consistant and principled position being a back bencher of the Government . You are my Hero from today as my youthful days hero Vasudeva Nanayakara exposed his hipocracy today and he digged his grave by himself. We also salute DEW, Tissa Vitarana & Gajadheera. Their action is not much surprising as they being Leftists should stand for principled stands as their predicessors- NM Colvin, Wicks, etc did throughout the history except for at few instances-e.g 18th Amendment in the recent history. But Vasudeva is worset than Mervyn Silva now. Better to send him to a mental hospital for a check up.

    Sir, your name will be written in GOLDEN letters in our history one day as an individual without even a proper/ organisedpolitical party who had courage to act against the authoritarian family regime of MARA.

    All the best for brave professor

    First of all, if you are a honest person you should resign your position held by you in the Government. Then you should start a petition to be signed by all or at least most of the civilians of Sri Lanka who think the procedure adopted to impeach the CJ is illegal and send to all international bodies including Commonwealth, UN, EU etc etc.. Its time Rajiva for you to show your honesty. If you do not do this please do not write or even open your mouth in the future. If you are not with us you are with the law breakers.

    Yes Rajiv, everything is chaos and you are the only person trying to do something nice.

    I think we should amend the constitution to get at least 75 seats for the Liberal Party in parliament, without wanting them to win any elections. This is justified because the Sri Lankan people are too stupid to see that the Liberal Party is the only group who can salvage Sri Lanka.

    Keep hammering, while on parliamentary salary.

    Prof, You forgot to talk of the ethics and professional conduct of our parlimentarians. I had high regard on you earlier lost it few years back after eyewitnessing an incident in Trincomalee. I too was participating in a meeting in Trincomalee, co-chaired by you and the military man Govt Agent De Silva. You were then human rights ministry’s secretary and simply watching how the military GA abusing the rights of poor fishermen in Trinco. I don’t see any connection between your writings and your actions.

    The Sri Lanka Constitution is neither fish flesh nor Fowl! It is FOUL.
    It is claimed by the morally corrupt clowns; Vasudeva Nanayakkara, Sarath silva and Ranil Wickramasinghe, that parliament is “supreme” following the British Colonial heritage, but unlike Britain that has a king who is a figure heads, Lanka has an all powerful president. Tee Lankan constitutions is more akin to the US model with built in “Checks and Balances”.
    The BRITISH PARLIAMENT IS DEEMED SUPREME ONLY, REPEAT ONLY IN RELATION TO THE KING or QUEEN FROM WHOM IT WRESTED SUPREMACY and removed power. Sri Lanka does not have a king so the question of SUPREMACY OF PARLIAMENT or following the British tradition does not arise, contrary to what the clowns Ranil Wickramasinghe and Sarath Silva and Vasudeva Nanayakkara claim!
    The foul constitution of Lanka follows the US model of checks and balances beteween the 3 branches: executive, legislature and judiciary with the JUDICIARY BEING SUPREME that is why there is a SUPREME COURT!

      Nice ideas Rajiva, But while we are talking about reform of the Judiciary why not talk about reform of the corrupt executive which is really the root of the evil, and has sought to spread its corruption to the judiciary – as with Mahinda Rajapakse offering a bribe to the CJ by giving g\her husband high posts?
      It is indeed your hero, MAHINDA RAJAPKSE who should be impeached first for corruption and bringing grave harm to the the judiciary and legislature and disrepute to the sovereign people of Lanka.

      Also, if the Commonwealth does not pull out its Heads meeting in Colombo (CHOGM) and its support to Rajapaksa’s dictatorship, it would indeed be a putrid organization.

    I suppose, none could oppose your suggestions and proposals. Indeed, the government ought to consider them. But those are for future what about the situation she is in now.

    About “prevent any judge sitting in judgement in cases in which he or she has any interest”. We hear no self respecting judge does this, except this CJ has done it. If ‘she understands this was wrong’ and has done it as you say, then she should have resigned. She not only hadn’t resigned but tring to stay put means she is caught or walked willingly in to a conspiracy.

    It’s your right to abstain even as an appointed MP.

    This letter gives a education of a different aspect of the issue but the fact remains that the motive behind the impeachment move by MARA and his colleagues is not for the genuine interest of the people but for their own, for political and “other” means. We should know the stands taken by so called left parties who are with the Govt.What Vasu Sahodaraya says ?

    This is the most balanced comment I have heard in the ongoing debate about the impeachment of Chief Justice Shirani Bandaranaike.

    Those who were backing Chief Justice Shirani Bandaranaike and shouting at the top of their voices have conveniently forgoteen the fact that she had serious allegations to answer. She should have answered the charges before the PSC inquiry instead of cutting off and running away from the inquiry. She made some stupid lawyers become coconut dashers and made the legal profession a laughing stock. The already tarnished image of lawyers as sharks has suffered further by this latest saga.

    The anti-government forces that hitched on to this issue had exploited the CJ for their own political ends. Like what they did to the former Army Commander they will now drop CJ Shirani Bandaranaike as a hot potato.

    For the ordinary people of Sri Lanka the whole hyped drama was good entertainment. I believe most of them would have formed the opinion that Chief Justice Shirani Bandaranaike was not clean and was trying to wriggle out of those serious allegations on procedural grounds.

    President of the Court of Appeal and the two judges who issued the writ against the Speaker and PSC members have demonstrated that they cannot be expected to give reasoned judgments interpreting the law in the way it should be interpreted. The fact that fellow judges in the Court of Appeal have come out strongly against the way the President of CA handled the case speaks volumes against his impartially and ability to make decisions according to law.

    CJ Shirani Bandaranaike will be sacked or will resign before being sacked and will soon be forgotten. She will be history. The nation will move on. The US funded NGO wallahs will look for other issues to demonstrate to their masters in Washington that the dollars they spent on them are not being spent in vain.

    For the government, the impeachment issue has enabled it to distract the people’s attention from real issues like rising cost of living, rising unemployment and corruption. Government is the real winner in this hyped up drama.

    Sumanthiran MP has unnecessarily dragged TNA into further conflict with the government over an issue the Tamils do not care. This political upstart who was never voted into Parliament by the Tamils is taking the Tamils on a collison course against the government. TNA was voted by the Tamils to fight for the rights of the Tamils not to save Chief Justice Shirani Bandaranaike.

    It is good you never had the opportunity of making this speech which is more to the tune of one singing for his supper thus safe guarding your miserable position in this most corrupt Govt.You have failed miserably to ensure the provision of punitive safeguards for action against a President who would appoint the nincompoop husband of a Chief Justice to high profile jobs with the expectation of her scratching your back for the favours done and even going down to saying in public that he was an Ape MINIHA and when he faltered He did eventually shape things up.,

    Like SL Gunasekera it is appreciated that Rajiv Wijesinghe has at last taken a stand against this evil monster called Rajapakse.
    I was suspicious of this fellow after the Tsunami Helping Hambantota but it were persons like SL Gunasekera and Rajiv W who kept backing the regime to the hilt. Thereby this fellow got too powerful and now it is a Herculean task to have him extracted out of the Sri Lanka polity.Now even SLG and RW will be bitten back by this vindictive and lethal character. SLG had been impressed by MR’s nationalism but the latter has no idealism on any issue;he exploited nationalism after SF had won the war for Lanka

    Dear past professor,
    I am happy you have let your conscience speak on this matter though you speech has prejudice and bias. How can you expect the minister of justice appoint a independent or at least fair panel in this country when you yourself voted for the 18th Amendment to the Constitution without seeing the mess it created.
    You are not objective, but try to show to be objective…

    I know you are bit upset Rajiv … Whatever the case, you have done immense service to the nation defending the country against LTTE terrorism .. But, you still could not get rid of Federalsim or the love towards 13th. So, your displeasure about removing people who would definitely interpret constitution with Federalism twist is understandable … It’s bit of sad but country should go on undivided and never waive the right to defend it at whatever the cost country has to incur …
    I do not still understand the people who think highly about the 13th/ federalism after what the country went through 30 odd years under terrorism … This country of 268 X139 miles do not need to follow thousands X thousand miles countries … We need one good government with good people as politicians … Not thousands and thousands of polticians of whom many are rapists, robers, criminals and murderers … Good hearted but sticking to the emotional ideas to bring faderalism in any form would not do country any good … It would only bring disaster ….

    The first recommendation of Prof. Rajiva is to prevent any judge sitting in judgment in cases in which he or she has any interest. He says it is to deal with the Chief Justice buying a flat from Trillium while judging their cases. He further states that it is clear she understands this was wrong, inasmuch as she withdrew from that bench immediately after the impeachment resolution.

    According to her counsel Romesh de Silva, the allegation of wrongfully taking over the Golden Key cases did not entail any benefit to the CJ. In fact, Trillium Residencies had already been excluded from the Golden Key case. Several persons including former CJ Asoka De Silva had purchased apartments in Trillium. A proper judicial panel is required to decide whether she was wrong in continuing to hear the Ceylinco cases. I believe the accusation by the professor is not based on the explanation submitted by her lawyers.

    When considering the saying “Caesar’s wife must be above suspicion” it is advisable to include his recommendation in a new act on Governance of Judges, including an impeachment procedure meeting the Latimer House principles recommended for Commonwealth Countries.

    Professor Rajiva should also focus on the Human Rights of housemaids travelling to Saudi Arabia by calling for a PSC to study this issue of and ensure that the recommendations are implemented. Recalling the Ambassador is insufficient.

      Truth
      I can understand Sinhala and Tamils being prevented going to Saudi. But why stop Muslims going to Saudi as housemaid or whatever when it is the law of their God they face in their holy land. After all, even get beheaded, it’s a step nearer to Allah’s heaven.

      What about ethics for MPs, Ministers etc. How about the MPs & Ministers who have not declared assests? Mr. Rajiv how about Wimal Weerawansa & Rajitha sitting in the PSC? How about, after 04 opposition Members walking out, Speaker NOT taking any action to fill the vacancies before proceeding the PSC Further??
      How about Speaker taking the vote for any other MOTION instead of “Removal of CJ” ? To which Court OR TRIBUNAL anyone can go for an interpretation?

    Sahadevan what do you find so heroic about Mr, Wijesinha’s statement to the press! If you are in need of heroes what about Mr, Sumathiran who actually got up and insisted on making his speech despite the catvcalls amd verbal thuggery. It might be heroic if Wijesinha resigned like he did when Mrs. B lost her civic right. For some odd reason best known to himself, he resigned from the innocent university of peradeniya claiming he was doing so to protest against Mrs.B’s loss. Nobody quite understood the connection then. If ever a time was right to resign from a place whose policies you are contributing to everyday it is NOW Mr. W! You yourself say no one takes any notice of you, so quit and try to do some good somewhere before too late.

      Kumi Suraweera,

      I appreciate Sumanthiram very much, but Rajiv acted as a Government MP. That is the difference. Do not forget that he is a National List MP ( Sumanthiram also). It is not advisable to resign now as the vacancy will be filled by another thug like Mervyn Silva.Better to keep Rajiv in the House at least to see marginal protests at this critical juncture………

    Rajiva , just a simple question to you. Will you kindly inform the readers whether you are entitled to use the professor titile, you know the answer best. I put it to you that you are NOT entitled to use it but you continue to use and allow others to use it DECEIVING everyone. If am wrong please answer, so that I will support my stance with irrefutable proof and enlighten the readers.

    I say lanka i wonder why you ask that. several people have mentioned that to me too and I am not sure why. I thought that everybody who had worked in a university here was now called professor but someomne said that they cannot keep that title once they leave or retire unless they have been a full professor for a mimmun number of years or received the honour of being made emeritus or something like that. It seems that if you are onyl an associate professor until you retire you cannot in any case use the professor title. That is completely bogus. Now How long has RW being a full professor? He left one university so I do not think he was a professor there. he joined another a few years ago. Was he made Asociate of Professor and how long was he prof fully? has he resigned from the university? How long ago? or has he been given indefinite leave to serve us in a better place? Will he be able to return to academe when he leaves parliament? Who knows the answers?

    I just had another thought. I hope RW has Sinhala and Tamil versions of the statement he did not get time to give. he must send those to the other papers. No use just speaking to the readers of this paper who are mostly lost cases. I mean anti national, English speaking, probably Kolomba hathay. It would have been a different situation to have delivered it inParliament even in the Queen’s lingo as it would get intio hansard. and also meet the wrath of non believers unlike us. I wonder if u will get rapped over the knickles for wrtiting to the Telegraph. As someone says above, you are Son of Sam. i think MR is very fond of Sam and wonder if you told MR that you just have to abstain because it will be difficult for you otherwise in internaitonal liberal circles. If so, I caN imagine MR patting you on the head and saying Thats alright Rajiva, but we cant let you SAY anything in parliament. For your father’s sake, we will put up with your temporary problem of cosnience, but dont let it happen again. Dont worry I wont tell the canteen to stop serving you cornflakes and golden syrup either

    Leel/ Villager says:
    “prevent any judge sitting in judgement in cases in which he or she has any interest”. We hear no self respecting judge does this, except this CJ has done it. If ‘she understands this was wrong’ and has done it as you say, then she should have resigned. She not only hadn’t resigned but tring to stay put means she is caught or walked willingly in to a conspiracy.” How about Sarath N. Silva’s performance? He even sat on judgement in a case where he was a respondent. What justice we had during that time. You can ask Elmore Perera or Tony or even Victor Ivan about it. Our people have short memories.

    Naga says:
    “Sumanthiran MP has unnecessarily dragged TNA into further conflict with the government over an issue the Tamils do not care. This political upstart who was never voted into Parliament by the Tamils is taking the Tamils on a collison course against the government. TNA was voted by the Tamils to fight for the rights of the Tamils not to save Chief Justice Shirani Bandaranaike.”
    Was Rajiva ever voted to the Parliament by the people? Why double standards?
    Is it because Sumanthiran is a Tamil? Naga also says that TNA was voted … Was our Sinhala MP’s voted to Parliament to Impeach the CJ? TNA, just because it is a party representing Tamil majority does not mean that they should be subservient to the government to achieve their rights. They also have all the rights to stand for justice just like the Sinhalese. Although I am a Sinhala I salute them for the stand they took.

    What Lanka says absolutely right. Professor is not a title but a post. So after retirement or resignation that person does not hold that position any more. Only exception is that after being a full professor for over 10 years an after retirement, the Senate of the University he/she served ‘could grant’ rpt ‘could grant’ him/ her the title of Professor Emeritus, after which this title could be used. I don’t think even G.L. Peries was granted Professor Emeritus. If not he too cannot use it. Use of Professor in the U.S. is different. Any academic could be called Professor. But the difference there is even people with doctorates unless they are in the academic field don’t us Dr. unlike in Sri Lanka where some have dubious doctorates like what Mervin Silva has received. There are many including top politicians with doctorates in the U.S. But has anyone seen them using? That is because they are not in the academic field. Even Prime Minister of India Manmohan Singh has a doctorate but does not use Dr. as a prefix. We have Dr.s and Professors galore.

    RW talks about declaration of assets. Doesn’t he believe that the Speaker shouldn’t take action against MPs who haven’t declared at the time of entering Parliament and who don’t declare very year their assets according to the Assets law? Why is he silent on this? Why is his double standards? Why should it apply only to the judiciary?

    Kumari Suraweera:
    You should know that ‘blood is thicker than water.’ RW is in that family. Father SamW is closely related to MR. RW’s mother Muktha is closely related to RanilW. So this RajivW is giving us a puppetry show for our entertainment. (Or is it a Muppet show.)

      G. Pandith,
      Those days, I was a kind of a ‘Rawaya’ fan and was against CJ Silva’s indifference. He should have been impeached. Just like now, it’s politics at that time as well.

      I have nothing against Tamils fighting for their rights, but I oppose bantuland concept.

    To: G.on Pandit, and Prof. Rajiva and…other MARA Govt. Ministers.
    ————————————————————————-

    I know there are too many Pandits in Parliament including the President.

    First can you explain the meaning of this Title President received from Kandy Buddhist Preletes. it’s called
    “Rajawansa Vibushana Dharmadeepa Charkawarthi”

    Also Please watch the following video.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=urektzCHAyQ

    I can also get a bigger title If I can give Five brand new Mercedes Benz Cars……..10 Acres of Prime Land…….Build a 500 feet tall Buddha statue……give 50 Air tickets to USA or Europe…. and a Mega Dana to 10,000 buddhist monks and preletes.
    But sorry I am not a Fu….ng as…. h….e to be that mad when our poor children are going to Middle East to make ends meet to feed their families.

    The bigger thief (Mr 10%) Basil Rajapakse Just stole 85 Billion Rupees of poor peoples money with a fake DIVINEGUMA BILL WHILE CHASING CJ WHO TRIED HARD TO SAVE IT FOR POOR PEOPLE………Basil say he is going to help poor……….while getting down LAMBORGINI’S FOR FUN AND BUILDING RAJAPAKSE HOTELS IN KALPITIYA AND EAST COAST AND OWNING A 4.5 Million Dollar HOUSE IN USA.

    He is the noted Mr 10% CUNNING FOX WHO DUPED EVERYBODY IN THE COUNTRY.

    While saying he got down ONE MILLION TOURISTS LAST YEAR……which I calculated in order to achieve that figure there should be 2,600 (12 full flights per day)tourists should land EVERY DAY 365 DAYS LAST YEAR.
    I went to Katunayake Airport for six days last two weeks and did not even see 30 Tourists landing per flight.
