President Sirisena yesterday in his desperation to clamp down on information that was being revealed about his part in Easter Sunday bombings announced, all those who testified before the Parliamentary Select Committee up to date are those who have left service and added hereon he will not allow any officer on active duty to testify before the PSC.
Sirisena’s earlier claim was a balatant lie; not all those who have testified so far are out of service. National Intelligence Chief, Sisira Mendis who testified before the PSC at its inaugural sitting was serving in his position even as Sirisena uttered those words last evening.
Soon after Sirisena uttered that lie during his meeting with the Police Chiefs last evening, he made it a point to clarify his statement noting , “We even removed Sisira Mendis from his position.” Another blatant lie.
Even less than 24 hours into Sirisena’s lie, Mendis has handed in his resignation a short while ago citing health complications.

In the interest of all Srilankans, it will be prudent for a psychiatrist to check on our president, before irreparable damage could be caused.
Lankan / June 8, 2019
Wasn’t that done last October/November?!
whywhy / June 8, 2019
At the October test he was told not to open the mouth until the
report is in but he failed prompting a test every two months .
And the lie detector indicates the lies are coming from other
parts of the body as well than his mouth !
Amarasiri / June 8, 2019
Is Sirisena a Packaya (speaking through his ass) as well?
nimal fernando / June 9, 2019
I like president Sirisena; immensely ………… he is a true son of the great Sinhalese-Buddhist nation of Sri Lanka. He is true to character of all the other great Sinhalese-Buddhist leaders and display the same traits.
Great leader and the father of the nation Mahinda Rajapakse diverted the Tsunami funds for safekeeping, to be utilized for more important work at a later date. Dispatched to haven/Nirvana all his detractors and sent some to live in France. His brother the painless-serial-killer, the next president of Sri Lanka, is already been fêted by all the religious leaders of the country for his methods of painless killing with sheep stun-guns. Religious leaders know a good man when they see one.
Mild mannered well-brought-up classy gentleman Ranil Wickeramasingha used quintessential Sinhala-Buddhist methods to protect and safeguard/cover-up the Central Bank and hard-workingman’s EPF ……….. to utilize the funds for better use for the hard-toiling workingman.
These are all great Sinhalese-Buddhist Lankan leaders ……….. whose quintessential Sinhalese-Buddhist ways/traits we have all come to appreciate. We are very fortunate to have had leaders in the last 71 years who have not deviated from the quintessential Sinhalese-Buddhist traits that we have all come to value.
If you want foolish leaders you have to look to other ethnicities ……….. leaders who sacrifice their entire families for a cause they believe in ………….
Rejoice! There is a true great son of the great nation in the highest office of the land.
What more do you want?
Radical Ideas / June 9, 2019
To add one more important point, in the style of ANURA KUMARA DISSANAYAKE (JVP Scientist of identifying the root cause of the problems), These Sinhala Buddhist Leaders were the ‘KALALAYA/Fetus” that came from the SINHALA Buddhist GHARBAASHAYA-WOMB. So, the powerful countries must decide which one to nurture and which one to contain. AKD of JVP used this type of Science Fiction methods to describe the Zaharan Hashim’s birth as a terrorist to the WOMB of ISLAM. And hinting a wail of threat to the Muslim community that if the Muslims did not take an effort to destroy the KALALAYA/ the Fetus, then “WE” meaning the SINHALA BUDDHIST RACIST NETWORK will have to destroy the WOMB meaning, the ISLAM itself. The sleeper cell of the Sinhala racism just woken up, I suppose with that statement. Also, what he failed to see is the glaring report made by the DIG NALAKA SILVA in the observation of the transformation of ZAHARAN in to becoming a TERRORIST was driven by the none other than the RAJAPAKSE backed/ JHU,BBS, Mahason organised DIGANA riots that was staged against the MUSLIMS. So, Sinhala Racist and GOVIGAMA MAFIA SIRISENA finally spoke the truth saying that HE DOES NOT want to see another MUSLIM Prabhakaran coming out of this mess which he and his GOVIGAMA MAFIA RULING ELITE families created through SINHALA BUDDHIST RACISM. If he was so honest, we might ask him then, why did he release the RABID DOG GNANASARA…? Is not it not he who is messing up everything and the most dangerous criminal who is planning everything from behind – CHAMPIKA RANAWAKA, the mastermind behind the WAR ON ISLAM that is waged by the STATE on its people who are TAX PAYERS. The Muslims now have the opportunity to file the in the ICJ against the state with the baking of 59 Muslim countries for state sponsored persecution in violation of the constitution.
Amarasiri / June 8, 2019
Dear Susie’s Mendis,
For many years, immediately after Sirisena appointed crooks and protected the crooks, Amarasiri conferred the Titles of Traitor, Pachaya(liar), Sevalaya(sleaze ), Mala-Perethaya( liming off the dead ) etc. Others have conferred additional titles.
Sirisena is performing as per his titles. The title he is not performing is that of the President.
For what is the Parliament waiting for? Just impeach the Traitor.
Eric / June 9, 2019
Well said friend . Thanks a lot for your analysis and Sharing it with us.
mike / June 8, 2019
Why can’t all the imbeciles in parliament impeach this village D O N K E Y, a.k.a? Gon-sena, Sillysena, Pachaya, WP, BP, etc. etc. I know this bastard is under the wing of Medamulana Meeharaka Percy Mahendra Rajafucksha (our tsunami hora).
Amarasiri / June 8, 2019
Okkoma Pachayo(liars). Okkoma Horu (bandits). Are Okkoma Sinhala-Buddhists as well?
If so, you may infer your own inferences.
Siyarata / June 8, 2019
I remember in Galle prior to the presidential election Ranil and Purawasi balaya vowed that they will take the responsibility if their candidate Sirisena doesn’t meet the public aspirations. They reiterated without fear or any inhibitions vite for him. They were namely Lucien Bulathsinhala. Darmasiri B. Nalinda Jayatissa. Prasanna Vithanage. W. Jayasiri etc. Now who will dare taking the responsibility? Because RW can’t win an election please stop sending people like thisto the public domain atleast now. RW is responsible !
D.P. / June 8, 2019
You can put me also in the same category. I lost the confidence in MY 3 more than three yrs ago but the only way to get him out legally is through an impeachment. However, SLPP won’t support an impeachment b’cos the more MY 3 disrupt the Gvt the happier SLPP is.

sira is a pissu pussa.
Gemini Cricket / June 8, 2019
Those days when sira was the minister of health under Mara, he was so meek that he was not in charge of his own ministry.
It was namal and co who used to call the shots at the ministry of health.
He was just a puppet and a rubber stamp, being kept in a position because of his long service to the SLFP. Mara and co kept him where he belonged like a dog.
Now it seems that the same old village dog has grown wings and has become so bold that he has taken the constitution of our beloved country into his hands. He now has the guts to defy the judiciary, defy norms and laws and behave like he owns Sri Lanka.
All this because there is no single bastard with a spine to kick this bitch back to where he belongs.
Ranil is not just a ponnaya by his birth, he is a ponnaya by his actions too. This is killing our country. We need a guy with balls to bring Sri Lanka back to sanity.
We need SF in a strong position. We need Mangala. We need other good, sincere and strong people in charge to tackle these shameless scum and scrub them off from leaching our government.
For heavens sake Sri lankans wake up and support impeachment of Gon Sira.
thondamany / June 9, 2019
Gemini cricket… are you ready to play ball or catch up ?
Need SF………………….? Expired. Managed only 5000 votes from Gampaha District. A terrible looser.
Need Mangala………….. Living off deceit…. Just sacrificed the Country on the Western Alter.
Then 6.2 million idiots from all communities and civil societies and parties who fall into this category, including your nominees SF & Mangala. Other good, sincere and strong people have fallen on the way due to sleaze… Friday Forun, the Puravesi, Abraham & Co., Watalappam & Co.,
What do we do ? Play a kind of gemini cricket??????????????

What a spineless she-male! Better if this idiot was not born!
Ad / June 8, 2019
Sirisena group must be all a cheap scavengers family. SLT chairman is alleged to have plundered many properties belonging to SLT. Then comes the rice mogul. None of them deserve even a hamudey. The political system is so weak, that makes a snake a giraffe, donkey and monkeys into pets, hyenas to household pets but their actual behavior is already witnessed in the parliament and outside. They are not doing any useful service to the public ,but auctioning the projects and pocketing the spoils.
What will justify their actions would be like the one which was given to Musolini, Nicolae Ceaușescu, et al. But yellow robes are similar to red flags used in Spanish bull ring. The rogues are spared by the foolish. If politicians have any intelligence by now this idiot would have been impeached. How can people bear the economic burden any more, when this idiot continue to dance irresponsibly?
Ayathuray Rajasingam / June 8, 2019
President Maithripala Srisena is bargaining the sovereignty of Sri Lanka with his powers & privileges.
President should be aware that transparency is vital for a vibrant democracy. The interference with the Parliament reminds the struggle between the Crown and Parliament during Stuart period. I think the time is ripe for people to kick out President from the political scenario.
JD / June 8, 2019
Maitghripala Sirisena lied to the NGO kaakkas as a the common Candidate.so, it doe snot matters bond scammers are thieves. Just talk.to declare the Common Candidate project is alive and all the NGO-Deamnds will be ful filled. the you will be forgiven.
On, Ven Bhikku asks where did that his photo was found. It wazs in that article that Bhikku was derobed and he was wearing a Tea shirt. Probably he is not aware of PHOTOSHOP.s
Eagle Eye / June 8, 2019
President Sirisena, What happened to that Bond Scam report that you promised to make public?
Isn’t it interesting to see the guy who lied under oath to the Presidential Commission on Bond Scam questioning the top level Government Officials? Those guys kept on addressing him ‘SIR’. What a disgrace?
Ahfzll / June 8, 2019
Citizens of the Democratic Republic of Sri Lanka,
Our constitution states that this Island Country is a Buddhist Sinhalese Country.
However, the CHAOS being experienced by the Citizens currently, as reported by the Media of the Politicians, The Clergy and the Sinhala Buddhist as per the Media reports and the Media programs that interview erudite people to explain the CHAOS to the hoi polloi :
Could the erudite people explaining the hoi polloi show us striking examples of Buddhist doctrines being practiced, to give PEACE a chance?
The traditional caste system, still adhered by the elite Sinhalese does not reflect the Democracy in the Official name of this Island nation.
Most of the comments on CT are people playing out their biases and bigotry in trying to silence the messenger using gutter language normally associated with thugs and rowdies?
The blame game is now being bandied around by Politico’s and the Clergy each trying to grab whatever POWER is available by their actions
The Proud claim to being s Buddhist Sinhala Country must be set by example. If it is NOT set by example then DO NOT use it as a privilege – because the most of us are victims of the circumstances of Birth.
No one should be above the Law and each Citizen of Sri Lanka is subject to equality in following the pristine Buddhist principals.
I trust this short note would make the each of us reflect in these chaotic times about the individual contributions – to restoring order and PEACE.
It would help if all the comments on CT are about the subject matter without going of on a tangent to their individual understanding of WHO TO BLAME.

MS and MR are left with no choice other than resisting and blocking all inquiries , all the way. Remember last year, eventually it took people to come out and protest and eventually SC putting an end. It is time, citizens and activist start looking to other avenues for remedy. I am surprised that MS allowed PSC to go this far, in the first place.Fortunately this much of a spark should be enough for public to realize these criminals are trying to resist and obstruct, the truth from being revealed. So now ball is in the court of public to decide what they want to do with it. Either they can fight back like in last year for justice or else just accept this as karma (which I believe is a popular alternative word in Lanka for denial ). The other options is the courts, which still will need people resistance and pressure to consider. Because MS can come up with excuses like threat to security/sovereignty, interference with on going inquiry, presidential privileges, constitutional loop holes __-etc—etc, to see that, it never reaches the door steps of courts.
JD / June 8, 2019
All Parliamentary Committes are Political drama. In this particular case, it is important to find how Maithripala sirisena and Mahinda Rajapakses are, because this is the election year. I am wondering whether sisira Mendia will be hired as a double agent and whether they found the information they needed. I think Sarath Fonseka was the Catpaw. Anyway, new Defence and Buddha Sasana Minister Ranil wicramasinghe is doing an excellent job during this ELECTION YEAR. Praise Lord for that.

Good Sense / June 8, 2019
This “Gamayatic” (Uncouth) approach is what is practised by the Administrative apparatus who cocoon Maru Sira, I am told. One cannot ask the officials not attend the Select Committee because that may be a violation of Parliamentary Privileges and the punishment for the same can be pronounced by the Parliament itself. Sira may prorogue the house. For how long can this game go on? In the hindsight was I wrong in 2015 to have voted for MY3 and RW combine?
Yogeswaran Thuraisingham / June 9, 2019
Got sick of reading articles and comments about MS. MS is a born liar. He did say that if RW came back as PM, he will resign within 24 hours. Can he now say that he never said that. When RW was again appointed by MS as the PM, the Sri-lankans were eagerly waiting for MS’s resignation. What happened? The circus of clowns are still there. Both MS and RW have thick skin, whereby they do not feel anything about the pulses of the public. Their aim is one. To be the president of Sri lanka, come what may.
Have we ever come across a President who wielded so much power with his family, downgraded to the post of the opposition leader?. I could only think of MR. He just did not have what a normal person has, Self respect. The dignity went through the window. I do have some sympathy for him, as his only ambition is to come to power and save his siblings and relations from being prosecuted.
K.Pillai / June 9, 2019
National Intelligence Chief, Sisira Mendis testified before the PSC at its inaugural sitting and then resigned.
Why the hell did Sisira wait this long?
Higher echelons in administrative and allied services say “I was helpless”.
Not really. It is being spineless.
Wavaegadra Apphaumay / June 10, 2019
MS and UNP life-time leader of Primer knows very well of Intelligence report before 12/4/19 Terror attack
by Local Muslim Terrorists or ISIS remote control Islam terrorist. Most of mass media has hide that President and Prime-Minister that accountability and responsibility of 21/4 Terror attack .
The Western press,Media, key Embassies and their lucky’s wanted Terror attack of covert operation by USA-CIA work,to be hide terror attack by Big -power politics .
UNP leaders of life-time Chairman of Wickramasinghe knows before-hand like that MS of President of SL ?
Both of RW & MS are game players of Western Political-hegemony vital interest since 15/1/8 of joint operation. That lessons we have to learned from that and this “good governance” and “rule of law” practices by UNP regime leadership undermined nation security of Sri lanka. If leaders of Wickramasinghe of R and Mof Sirisean are blame and claim for all their misdeeds of political interest of Western Countries for the enforcement authorities is that easy task? Why they are doing this double game because they wanted remain in Political Power for so many years to come!
They not betray of People who voted for them more than that they betray their own offices who work for them last 4 years and 6 months.
Most untrustworthy of two pair of politician that (MS+RW+CBK+) came to political -power15/1/8, those who are mishandling state of affairs by current govt,do not accepts basic norms of value of human being.
This mode of politics not democracy that is hypocrisy will not that way to last long by New & old UNP leaders in 21st century. The people are confused and complexes of future in coming catastrophe?

Suriya Ratnasiri / June 10, 2019
Sisira Mendis (I ME & MYSELF) did not resign.
He was removed.
Someone wants to know where he will go
He will be representing Sri Lanka in Burkino
Faso. He can teach intelligence (which he does
not have) to the Fasos or Assholes.
Jey / June 11, 2019
The more one reads about Sri Lankan President, politics and the politicians, one is flabbergasted as why the voting mass is inactive in the face of rotten politicians / politics. If Sri Lanka is democratic, you the people who elected these rotten politicians. What you saw you reap and what you vote you get. Do not complain, let the circus move on.
