Police Supported The Buddhist Monk Mob: Lawyers Collective

A group of senior legal practitioners have expressed concern over Police inaction in failing to stop the intimidation levelled against families of those disappeared during the war by a group of Rajapaksa supporters and extremist Buddhist monks, during a meeting that was held on Monday afternoon in Colombo.

CSR-1Conveners of the Lawyers Collective – Lal Wijenayake, Chandrapala Kumarage and JC Weliamuna in a joint statement yesterday have noted that despite the large contingent of Police present at the scene including senior Police officers, steps were not taken to maintain peace by removing or arresting the criminal trespassers.

They in fact have accused the Police of appearing to support the mob attempts to disrupt the meeting as they had requested the organizers of the meeting to call off the gathering and for the families from the North to return home. The legal practitioners in their statement have also noted that the Police refused to give security to the participants of the meeting, when they had expressed their wish to continue while also allowing some of the riotous Buddhist monks to remain in the Church premises.

Furthermore, the statement notes that the well-organized manner of the intimidation and disruption of the meeting for the families of the disappeared have also been revealed by:

-A fax message sent by an unknown group to media institutions requesting media coverage for the event claiming it is to train those from the North and the East to give evidence to the war crimes tribunal

-Intimidating phone calls to at least one family

– Police visits to another venue which the families of the disappeared had planned to hold a meeting and stay overnight on August 4, where the Police officials who visited the premises had demanded information about its organizers and participants

“The Constitution of Sri Lanka guarantees amongst other fundamental rights the right to freedom of speech and expression; peaceful assembly and t of association which mandates the police to protect those rights. If any agent of State aids abets or orders state officials to disrupt or sabotage such rightful activity he violates the Constitution,” the Lawyers Collective has noted in their statement.

In their statement they have also stressed on the fact that these groups cannot operate without the protection of the Defence establishments.

“We urge law enforcement authorities, if they were to respect Rule of Law, to apprehend and prosecute those who were responsible for this intimidatory criminal actions depriving the peaceful citizens of their right to peaceful expression, assembly and association,” the statement reads further.

    Dear Conveners of the Lawyers Collective – Lal Wijenayake, Chandrapala Kumarage and JC Weliamuna

    “A group of senior legal practitioners have expressed concern over Police inaction in failing to stop the intimidation levelled against families of those disappeared during the war by a group of Rajapaksa supporters and extremist Buddhist monks, during a meeting that was held on Monday afternoon in Colombo.”

    Para-Sinhala “Buddhism” is Terrorism.

    The monks are Para-Sinhala “Buddhists”

    The Politicians are Para-Sinhala “Buddhist” Politicians.

    Both Participate in Criminal activities. Some are war criminals. Some just Terrorists and criminals.

    So, take videos, pictures and put on the internet. Make it go global.

      Who is going to liberate the country from the Buddhist Bhikku terrorists?

        “Who is going to liberate the country from the Buddhist Bhikku terrorists?”

        1. Who? Why?

        They are like a pest, they are like Malaria.

        Buddha wanted them to have 2 or 3 robes and begging bowl.

        The Kings of Lanka gave then Viharas and land as much as 1/3 of the Fertile land. They also had slaves and indentured serfs to work for them. Ti was the King-monk Axis., just like the Roman catholic Church.

        All that land Belonged to native Veddah people.

        One way is to convert Buddhists into agnostics and atheists. so they will stop giving Dana and Prostrate to them.

        Another way is to show that they are following Mara religion. Many do nor care except the racists.

        So it a sad situation.

        We have Para-Sinhala combined with Para-Buddhism to form an explosive brew called

        Para-Sinhala Para-Buddhism, which is NOT Buddhism.
        Anyway, Sinhala Buddhists do not know Buddhism. They believe the lies and imaginations in the Mahawansa, whether supported or not. Read Mhawansa an Insult to Buddha by Ms. Sharmini Serasinghe

    Just as these families have a right to assembly, the monks have right to protest. Did the USA Embassy official forget basic tenets of democracy?

    Colombo Central or whatever this site is called need to get over the Buddhist paranoia. They can rest assured even though monks are passionate and loud they are not malicious.

      Child Abuse by a Monk in Habaraduwa; Yes, Sinhala “Buddhist” Monk

      She sent her grandson to school with the idea of providing him with proper education to make him a good person. The Buddhist monk in charge of the temple asked her to send the child to the temple and she sent him there because they were poor. There was no possibility for them to pay the money for tuition fees. That was the reason why they sent the boy to the temple school.When the child began to refuse going to the temple school so adamantly, grandmother had to look for the reason. It was then only that she discovered that the child who was sent to learn good behavior, ethics and Buddha’s Dharma from the monk had in fact been abused by the monk.

    Don’t hold your breath for the police in Sri Lankan to turn around and protect the fundamental rights of the people.

    The police is an extension of the MaRa Mafia family rule.

    British, Canadian , US and even Swiss and German diplomats guarded the Bishop Raiaapu’s flock who descended on Maradana.

    Maradana is traditionally Muslim Turf.Raiappu’s affiliations with the LTTE are well known.

    His agenda is for separation and create his own Eelaam Catholic Church.

    Why pick Maradana if the NGOs and the Western Diplomats want to give Raiaapu a hand?.

    Couldn’t they have it in Vellala Turf Wellawatta or the Elite and Diplomats Turf in Cinnamon Gardens?.

    Sure enough , the great majority of the foot soldiers of Prabakaran were from poor Catholic areas in Mannar.

    Obviously there are lot of these poor non Vellalas who suffered a lot to give Prabakaran and his Diaspora the great Eelaam.

    Wouldn’t it be better if the NGOs go to Mannar with their Western Diplomatic Corp to protest and hold these Hartals?.

    Or do they have other agendas too to hold it in Colombo?….

    Why has no one produced a sound track of these hooligans abusing the priest and identify them in no uncertain terms. Is’nt that the job of THE MEDIA??? You have the photos, DO YOUR JOB!

    These rascals thrive on the anonymity given to them by State protection. When you are in a position to record the actions…why is it not ever done completely. Are we to suffer innuendos, anonymous quotes and mysteriously vague accusations for ever? Do we really not have trained journalists? Are they all in exile or dead?

    In the recent past most of the pictures we see of sanga is of ugly, unruly and unbecoming behavior of members of Buddhist clergy. Short term objectives of ruling panties (not parties)uneducated, arrogant dumb a##es
    is doing irrecoverable damage to Buddhism.

    Call to stop this kind of behavior is useless as they will not listen they don’t care about public opinion. What is required is action by public.

    Then again all this is played out to sway the racial card to woo the voters, we will see the results in UVA elections. This is exactly the tonic our most intelligent voters require.

    Why do you even need a police dept. in Sri Lanka? Sri Lanka has gone to the dogs. If you take the major disciplines in SL everyone of it is a disgrace.

    Politics
    Justice
    Police Dept
    Forces
    Buddhism (Monks)

    Can you expect the next generation to be any better growing in this environment?

    One senior police officer said to me in passing “What a maha-loku-kolahala about these missing people, most of them must have gone overseas anyway”.
    With a mindset like this, where do you start?

    As one might suspect, our police and security services have an appreciable infestation of BBS/SinhalaRavaya sympathisers and the scope for mischief (including preparing property lists by ethnicity) has become commonplace.

    Sumane,

    You will be washing MARA’s under garments till your wife or daughter is raped and killed by this marauding regime and the murderous gangs of this family, I don’t need to give a list of them, everyday there is a rape or a murder in our Miracle of Asia. Almost all of them committed by the MARA Associates or closely connected with the un-ruling family, with impunity.

    There is this famous saying at the time of Hitler’s atrocities, “AND THEN THEY CAME FOR ME AND THERE WASN’NT ANYONE TO PROTECT ME. That is exactly what will happen to you, unless otherwise you are protected by MARA & GOTA themselves. I am sure you are a close lackey of them scrambling for the bones dished out by the ALI BABA robbed from the poor people by way of Commissions and exorbitant taxes, not to mention the Ethanol, drugs etc.All done by paying bribes to the patriotic MARA & Family. Otherwise why on earth are none of these fellows are prosecuted, they are being protected by the MARA regime, nothing else.

    Your namely really stinks Sumane, how on earth can you go to KADE for these traitors of the Nation who are even selling big chunks of our land to Chinese, as well. Are you a human being or something else?

    What lawyers collective should do is to boycott the courts for one day, all over Sri Lanka and protest on the streets against the Police. If they are not willing to do this then they should shut their mouth as well.

    We are only insulting the revered word ‘MONK’ by referring to these uncouth saffron/brown robed thugs who do not understand an iota of their religious disciplines. Bloody Bull Shit, Etc., etc., etc.
