Sirisena had reportedly said that as he himself is a father, he will look at the hacking incident committed by the teenager how a father would address it.

Soon after his statement, the two suspects who were remanded over the hacking incident were released on bail by the Colombo Chief Magistrate.

The 17 year old who was arrested in Kadugannawa and sent to a probationary home, was released on two sureties of Rs. 1 million each, while the 26 year old man from Moratuwa who was arrested and remanded over the incident was released on a cash bail of Rs. 25,000 with four sureties of Rs. 1 million each.

The case will be taken up again in November this year.

    President Sirisena – A man of greatness. He is unique among the rulers of our land. He should have earned headlines for this act of benevolence and the fact that he hasn’t is not his fault.

    He may have just won two votes as a direct result but as CBK says, he may want to now use their ingenuity to be put to better use.

      CBK has a better idea. She was Presidential. Use the talents of the creative intelligent youngster to better use.

      If you really, really, really want to punish somebody, there are ample criminals and fraudsters from the last 10 years of MaRa MaRa Chatu MaRa AmaNa rule, you should go after.

      Why not disclose the SECRETS you were talking about,, and go after those criminals.

      What about the Killings and Murders by Namal Rajapaksa and Mahinda Rajaaksa?

      Through the Grape Vine, Bulath Vine, Vettila Vine….

      An attempt on life of Rajapakses’ hired assassin captain Bharatha : like father, son too seeking to liquidate witnesses !

      There had been an abortive attempt on the life of Army Captain Baratha Kodituwakku a main hired assassin (now under interdiction ) of Lakshman Namal Rajapakse , who committed a number of crimes during the nefarious decade on behalf of Namal. Kodituwakku who was attached to the third Gemunu Hewa army camp , Matara as a commanding officer, during the nefarious decade had on behalf of Namal engaged in illicit treasure digging , extortion , murdered enemies, and abducted young girls and gave them over to Namal for his bed diet.

      Currently , he is a prime witness in the cases pertaining to the criminal activities of Namal. Kodituwakku who was released from remand custody on bail , was shot at with a T56 weapon on the 30 th of August by a group that arrived in a white Mazda vehicle at about 7.50 p.m in front of Ruhunu University, Wellamadama, Matara. However , since the firearm failed to fire , Kodituwakku has managed to run into the Ruhunu University and hid in order to save his life.

      The University security officers who witnessed this had handed over Kodituwakku to the police. On the following morning, that is on the 31 st at about 9.15 , the Van in which the suspects had come was found abandoned in the Kurunduwatte Junior Vidyalaya playground. A mobile phone hidden under the driver’s seat and a bag suspected to have contained the firearm that was used for the shooting had been detected and taken into the custody by the police .The police had also discovered that the revenue license and the registration number of this vehicle are fake.

      Captain Baratha Kodituwakku and his brother Captain Moorthy Kodituwakku are bosom pals of Namal Rajapakse. Moorthy was a chief of Namal’s Nil Balakaya , and also his co ordinating secretary . It were these two brothers who dug for treasure in the vicinity of Asapuwa Aaranyasena , Athudawe , Matara . When Baratha was the commanding officer in the Matara camp of third Gemunu hewa commanding force , he had been unleashing brutalities and violence against those who politically opposed the Rajapakses in Matara – beating and assaulting them ruthlessly .

      It was Baratha who also enlisted ‘Ambalame Suddha’ an underworld criminal to work as Namal’s hired assassin , and to help in their criminal activities. Baratha as was always the case with all those murderers and criminals associated with Rajapakses , he too had derived maximum benefits from Namal ( oblivious of national interests and people’s legitimate needs). One such benefit conferred on Bharatha was : 8 buses of Baratha are plying along Matara- Colombo expressway.

      Southern provincial council former minister Danny Hiththetiya was also murdered by Madusha Lakshan with Baratha’s support . Subsequently , when Lakshan was arrested , it was Baratha again who liquidated him , and destroyed evidence. Based on the 30 th shooting episode , now it is clear the necessity to destroy evidence , that is of Baratha the witness has arrived.

      It is no secret that it had been the practice not only of corrupt and cruel Namal Rajapakse but even his father Mahinda Rajapakse who is by now a byword for corruption and criminalities during their murderous history , to liquidate their enemies using the underworld criminals , and thereafter enlist others to murder those hired killers thereby wiping out evidence .

      Taking advantage of the 1988 -89 unrest and violence , it was ‘Chandi Malli’ who was used to kill a number of popular lawyers of the district who they suspected may be their rivals , and Chandi Malli the hired assassin was murdered through Wambotta .

      To kill Wambotta , Gotabaya Rajapakse , (Mahinda’s younger brother ) used his security divisions . By that time Gotabaya had become the defense secretary . Although these have not been proved so far in courts , all those who know the facts would not hesitate to testify. In the circumstances , the latest attempt on the life of hired assassin Baratha Kodituwakku is not just another ‘murder attempt’ on just another individual .

      If you really, really, really want to punish somebody, there are ample criminals and fraudsters from the last 10 years of MaRa MaRa Chatu MaRa AmaNa rule, you should go after, and the Sri Lankan Pilit who wanted to Fly a Plane when his alcohol level was 1.6, when the legal level was 0.2!

      Through the Grape vine….Bulath vine… Vettila vine

      A fool rushes in to rescue drunkard pilot who disgraced the country when all others frown upon the stigmatic episode

      It is with deep regret we bring to the readers of vines a report that owing to excessively inebriated condition of a Sri Lankan pilot, a storm of controversy erupted locally and internationally last week – a plane that was ready to fly to Frankfurt from Colombo was delayed for 15 long hours owing to this unfortunate scenario !

      The pilot while he was making love with a ‘chick of a peahen’ the previous day had got drunk excessively. Ordinarily , a pilot who is to fly does not consume liquor on the previous day .

      Though the pilot arrived as scheduled to take charge of the plane , he was truly under the influence of liquor and could not stand erect. The assistant pilot (who was God fearing ) apprised the German airport officials of this in the interests of the passengers and their safety.

      The German police thereupon did a breathalyzer test on the pilot. Ordinarily , if the intoxication is 0.2 % or over , the German police do not allow such an individual to pilot a plane. As this controversial pilot’s intoxication level at that moment was 1.6 %, the German officials therefore decided that the pilot was not fit even to drive a vehicle let alone a plane.

      Although this pilot is interdicted now , because of the gravity of his lapse , he is liable to have his international license cancelled forever , meaning that he will never ever be able to pilot an international passenger flight.

      Sadly , the Pilots Guild however is leaving no stone unturned to suppress and downplay this incident to save the pilot. While everybody is angered over this incident and reluctant to come forward on behalf of this most irresponsible and reckless pilot who put the lives of the passengers in dire jeopardy , unsurprisingly it is only a buffoon like minister Arjuna Ranatunge who from the first hour of appointment of the government of good governance was indulging in corruption , frauds and malpractices , and best known for his worst political treacheries who had come forward to rescue this drunkard pilot.

      President Sirisena

      A word of caution.

      Please ensure to keep this young talent to work for Sri Sri Lanka and not for Prof (Lumumba) Mahinda Percy Rajapakse or the pussyfooting Modawase.

      It is not easy to fight against evil, as evil can be dangerous to handle. Just because you are facing problems don’t give up.

      Hit the nail hard on the head in logical sense and Buddha Dharma will prevail for ever for the good of Sri Lanka.

      Buddha Dharma cannot be achieved without sacrifices.

      Buddhist worship Kaali. What we need is Kaali justice against the cronies.

    He should be pardoned but not giving him a training on the degree of damage his abusive nature caused.

    These young chaps should be given good training about the law and and order of the country.

    If this would have been found in Germany, they surely send the child to a juennile prison for a period of 3-6 months while giving him a training to him by psychologists and sociologists making him clear the harm his had caused.

    We know even if Mr Sirisena would not copy the way MR cuddled any young ones passing him in order to grab their parents votes, Mr sirisena is much into law and order.

    MR s acts were bound to his agendas based on political surviival.

    That Eknaligoda s two young boys were not given anything even if Army men of MR did the job dissapearence of Ekanaligoda.

    As a single mother Ms Ekanaligoda hd to go through all the hurdles.. I know the kind of situations so closely since we know such families well back in home country.

      However, being generous to the crooks, people have already pardoned avant-garde robber barons.

      May well be you are against Mr Sirisena for your own reasons, but please be healthy to give the due respect to him. He is the first ever prsident who started his office diluting his powers.

      Even today, we see that a parliamentary rule is being performed, with each andevery minister is given their roles to perform.

    President May Pardon Teenage Hacker

    Why is it MAY ?
    In these technological Times the President is duty bound not only to pardon him but get Education Ministry to place him in position to study in that field and make him a useful citizen in Country for the future.

    I believe, the private sector will grab such talent even before this president can think or blink.
    It will be a loss to the country.

    On similar note is that the Reason the President allowed the deposed , disgraced , Allegedly war criminal ,former Prez Was given permission to represent our beautiful country ??
    Because our President is a soft touch??

    Our President has been bullied enough by the so called JJO ( Joint Jokers Opposition under the Guidance of the biggest Joker.
    Making our country a disgrace in the world Arena! Is not acceptable.

    Ok .! . Let him pardon the student who hacked into other sensitive computers , IT IS CERTAINLY AN OFFENCE NEEDED PUNISHMENT AND STEER HIM CLEAR OF THOSE EVIL MASTERS WHO COMPELLED HIM TO COMMIT THE OFFENCE.
    This young man needed to know the Rights and Wrongs of the Law , Accountability is the word he need to know.

    Latest news the EX. Prez and his entourage were disgraced in Malaysia convention.
    HURRAY SRILANKA !!

    Lets not play to the gallery and play politics here by offering
    Presidential pardon to compare what would have happened if this
    incident happened during the previous regime. The youngster who
    hacked president’s website did an act of sabotage and it was not
    an accident. He should be given minimum sentence to upkeep the law
    of the land as he should know that wrong doers get punished for the
    offences they commit.let the Education ministry take him over after serving the sentence and give necessary training in IT and fit him
    in the right place in the govt.sector and should see that he is not grabbed by undesirables as this boy has got talent.

      sekara,

      “When will he pardon those languishing in jail for years with no charges against them?”

      A presidential pardon is ONLY for the persons who have been found GUILTY and CONVICTED by a court.

      The persons ordered to remand prison by a judge or detained using PTA have NOT been found guilty and sentenced. There is thus nothing the president can do assuming he follows the laws of our country.

      The main problem is that police investigations and court cases can take 10-20 years and the poor have no money for lawyers and bond.

      I believe that I read yesterday news of a sentence in a 20 year old murder case that was not political. I don’t know were the accused in remand prison or out on bail during 20 years.

      Please note that all kinds of alleged criminals are in remand prison during years.

          “I am talking of cases where detention is under PTA, based on vague suspicion and no specific charges.”

          That also is not for the president to decide. A general amnesty would help but I would be careful with releasing all detained with the PTA. PTA is been used for alleged drug dealers and money launderers because it allows “easy” arrests. For example “Karuna” was first detained under PTA.

    Both the President and the Prime Minister are humane to the core.They are gentlemen reminiscent of politicians of yesteryear.They are not petty minded.However the student should be dealt with according to the law and the law provides for dealing with juvenile delinquents.”Bending “( to borrow IGP Pujitha J’s telling phrase) the law for political mileage could be dangerous and indeed potentially damaging for both the young man , his peers and the country.

    On another note, readers may well imagine the boy’s fate had he done this mischief during the time of King Mahinda Rajapaksa.Atleast 3 consequences come immediately to mind.1) Gota’s White Van would have taken him away.2) the fellow would have been mercilessly beaten by goons on the way to school OR 3)his body would have been found in a thicket or in a river/stream.This indeed explains the difference between the former and current governments for those who constantly inquire if there was any difference between the two.

    So let’s in unison say Yahapalayana Jayawewa!! Things may not be perfect now but we can at least breath and sleep in peace.

    President “May” not pardon him, he SHOULD pardon him!! However, even at this tender age, he should be accountable! Therefore he should be counselled and warned. If possible hgive him a job to hack NR and MR’S computers! (I am joking). It (pardon) should not be a precedence for others and others may expect the similar treatment. For example, Namal may quote this to get a Presidential pardon.

    Another aspect is the discretion given to a President to pardon people? We have seen instances of the wife of a deputy minister getting a Presidential pardon for MURDER!!!!
