President Sirisena Is Forcing Me To Stay In Qatar: Ambasador A.S.P Liyanage

Sri Lankan Ambassador to Qatar A.S.P Liyanage whilst addressing the staff of Stafford Sri Lankan School in Doha complained that it is President Maithripala Sirisena who is forcing him to remain in Qatar.

“I have tendered my resignation many times, but President Maithripala Sirisena is not accepting it”, Ambassador Liyanage is heard confessing in the audio recording whilst addressing the staff of Stafford Sri Lankan School Doha on the 24th of January 2019.

The purpose of his hurried meeting took place, as Ambassador Liyanage who forcibly took over the school from its existing owners, had terminated yet another respected staff teacher of the school and instructed the school management to file an absconding case against her with the police authorities in Doha Qatar.

The norm employed by Ambassador Liyanage is to instantly terminate any staff member of the school who does not tow his line and thereafter immediately file a case with the police indicating that the school staff member is absconding.

This fabricated case is filed despite the terminated staff member still being in the accommodation provided by the school.

The last time ambassador Liyanage resorted to such a thing, three lady teachers were kept in remand custody overnight. However for their fortune the police authorities understanding the predicament the lady teachers were put in decided to not lock them up behind bars, but rather house them in their office where they were permitted to have their food brought in by their family members and friends and also to sleep on the sofas overnight. The lady teachers subsequently submitted a letter to the police thanking them for their hospitality and kindness for the way they were treated when held overnight in remand custody.

During his speech Ambassador Liyanage went on to lie to all staff present that the recently terminated Founder of the Scrabble Society and English Literature teacher was also in remand custody and that she will remain there for a week.

He then went on to ridicule the profession of House Maids in his speech when he said “Thang oya teacher sathiyak hira gedara inna wela thiyenna hori thiyena gehenu saha House Maid samage” translated into English it means “Now this teacher will have to remain in custody with women who have sores on their bodies including puny House Maids”.

However Colombo Telegraph can confirm that this particular teacher was never remanded or even detained by the police authorities despite Ambassador Liyanage making these false claims to further threaten staff of the school.

She will be travelling to Colombo on Wednesday 30th January 2019 and will be dropped off at the Hamad International Airport by her friends and not deported as ridiculed by Ambassador Liyanage in his speech.

In his speech the Ambassador continued to say that currently 122 school children have pending school fees and if they don’t pay their fees by the 10th of February 2019, they will not be permitted to continue with their studies.

Ambassador Liyanage also emphasized that as an Ambassador he does have diplomatic immunity and is untouchable.

“Dont be stupid trying to go against me in Qatar,” he continued to threaten the audience.

What has saddened the Sri Lankan community in Doha is that this was a school founded in 2001 and ran as a community school serving the Sri Lankan expatriate community unhindered for many years. The school had been supportive in the past and never turned away a single child for their parents having difficulties in paying their school fees.

Many Sri Lankans who were severely affected during the global financial crisis faced in 2008 and once again during the blockade Qatar faced and currently does since June 2017, are grateful to the Founder of the School Kumudu Fonseka and the former Board of Trustees, who did not let a single Sri Lankan student endow any difficulties in continuing their education.

A long standing Sri Lankan parent speaking to Colombo Telegraph on condition of anonymity said “Ambassador Liyanage has destroyed this beautiful school that was serving us all this time. This is not a Sri Lankan Community School anymore. Since September 2018, especially after Ambassador Liyanage took over the school in a coup similar to what President Sirisena tried and failed in October 2016, he has enrolled over 400 African, Afghanistan and Pakistani children into this school. This is not a Sri Lankan Community School anymore. He has destroyed the values, cultures and beliefs that were instilled in this our only Sri Lankan School in Doha. Our children are now facing a cultural shock each time they go to school. Last year we had a student who got the best results in Economics in the whole world. We also had 11 students who did Bio Science with six of them going on to university to study medicine. We were so proud of this school but not anymore. Now he is busting all the school funds and pocketing commissions for illegal constructions being made to the school with no government approvals being obtained in doing so has compromised the safety standards in the premises. Even the security to look after school has been awarded to his daughter’s father in law’s security firm named Al Batheel who have lost many security contracts lately. They have employed many of their excess security cadre mainly made up of African nationals to man the school. Some of them even go on to intimidate the Sri Lankan community. It is strongly rumored that the Ambassador is now planning on gifting the school to his newly wedded daughter and son in law, as if this is an inherited family business.”

Stated below are the names of Staff of Stafford Sri Lankan Doha School who were terminated for no apparent reason with some who were remanded by authorities on the instructions of Ambassador A.S.P Liyanage.

1. Upali Jayasinghe – Former Principal

2. Prashanthi Weerawardena Teacher

3. Dilshani Perera – Teacher

4. Aruni Colombage – Teacher

5. Anuradha Amerasinghe – Teacher

6. Subodha Ramanayake – Administrative Assistant

7. Amila Obeysekara – I.T Administrator

8. Sumith Sayakkara – Driver

Editor’s note: This article was amended on the 4th of February 2019. The earlier version included the name Madushani Madawaarachchi – Teacher. She claimed that she had resigned on her own accord. “I would like to inform that I am not involved in this issue and my name should not be included in the list of employees specifically mentioned in that online article” she wrote. We apologize for the published error. However our reporter stands by the fact that many teachers have been verbally abused, harassed, threatened and terminated for no valid reason. Some teachers have also resigned due to the unbearable working conditions they have been put under.

      Needless to even discuss about it, SILLYSENA ‘s qualities and performances are more similar to that of ASP Liyanage or the like crooks.
      :
      So no wonder, if bugger SILLYSENA begs ASP to stay further in Quatar and ruin it further. These men would never see it right, for the good of our people, but pocket filling tacktics being kept above anything..

    District Director of Agriculture J. Ponnamperumaarachchi says that the species discovered in Jack fruit and Bread fruit in Ethkandura area, Galle is not ‘Sena’ caterpillar.

    The pest is known to be the species called ‘Paksa’ caterpillar.

    So now Srilanka is faced with a two pronged attack By Siri – Sena in the North Central and Raja – Paksa caterpillar.in the South.

    CT Editors: The Politics of Distraction with trivia, while Trumpland’s Foreign Ministry is further broadening US security foot print in Lanka, after the logistics hub in Trinco and BIA, continues here at this website?
    We are informed today:
    “The United States Department of State’s Office to Monitor and Combat Trafficking in Persons (J/TIP) has awarded a grant to the International Organization for Migration (IOM) to implement a 30 month project to combat trafficking in persons in Sri Lanka, an IOM press release said. For this project, IOM will also partner with Save the Children International and seven other non-governmental organizations to implement counter trafficking initiatives in 10 districts across the country.
    Please, Any statistics? Even fake statistics on this latest distraction for securitization?
    What is the extent of the problem of Human Trafficking in Sri Lanka relative to the region and rest of the world? No statistics provided, how many more Trumpland deep state agents will be installed via this IOM program?! MCC funds spent?
    US nationals were recently apprehended with drugs from Afghanistan in Colombo so that US Department of State and their NGOs have an alibi to set up security ops. to apprehend drugs dealers and human traffickers in Lanka???!

    Re: Ambassador to Qatar,

    He is learning from his boss, the traitor Sirisena, who carried out the illegal and unconstitutional coup. He is applying those rules outside Sri Lanka’s borders. It is interesting to see what the Qatari court system has to say.

      Amarasiri,
      I know ASP personally, he is more or less like MAHINDA Jarapakshe.
      :
      Pompous behavour not respecting to anyone other than Rajapakshe. Would voluntarily be the bucket toilet of Rajapakshe. I have no idea, what made him that obsequeous to Rajaakshe. That peacock mansion, was bought to his name, the truth is RAJAPAKSHES black money was invested under this bugger.
      :
      I wonder why how the contemptous ASP was appointed as an Ambassador to Quatar ? This man has not whatsoever knowledge in diplomatic missions, very similar to that of Jaliya W, cousin brother of Mafia boss, convicted criminal in the US, by education, not even OL.
      .
      However, SILLYSENA abusing us, continued the SAME manthra of Rajapakshe bastards.
      :
      ASP is good for his businesses, but no means a good man for Diplomatic missions. Too much of a fake charactor.

        Babalathaappu,

        ASP was appointed before the illegal and constitutional coup. DayanJayatillska was also appointed before the coup. Then the coup and Sirisena appointed the Fake PM, Jarapaksa. Looks looks like they are a team, and ASP is now doing the black money for both Hora Sevalya Sirisena and Jarapaksa.

        That is why Sirisena does not want ASP to resign. May be ASP got a “better offer from Jarapaksa, now that the coup fizzled.

          Yes, I got them all Mr Amarasiri. What I meant how come SHITSENA to carry on same mistakes ?
          Only hope left before us to seek divine forces to do the job. That I am doing , not being able to digest this any more.
          Last night, they had been a program on Derana TV – Aluthparlimentuwa. That revealed a lot in the areas of DRUG trafficking so that the paenelist Dpty IGP Ajith Rohana became speechless. Ranjana Ramanayake was among the invitees. However, they Derana has not published the VIDEO today, since former President of one of the drug control unit, now being exile in Switzerland revealed lot more about the core reasons.
          This video is obviously banned by the govt today. Wait and see, I will add you the link if that would neverthless be available for public. Ramanayake requested doctor in exile to expose the list of the names (over 174) of key drug peddlers (Ministers, MPs, powerful business men, doctors and everyone are among them).

    If not for the fact that many parents and their children are under stress, this would be a proper comedy that would generate hoots of laughter. An ambassador turned Iskola Mahaththaya. Only achieved by a Sri Lankan government dictat. This is nearly as bad as sending a petrol station mudalali to slap a doctor diplomat.

    ASPLIyanage is fine specimen of Sri Lankan manhood. Why, he even creams his sparkling black wig every evening (with Kiwi! True.) Somewhere in all this you know it will all end in tears. Does the ambassador know that he is not going come out of this smelling of roses?

    After this joker illegally took over the school in Qatar, the teachers have not got any bonus or salary increases. Does this mean that he is an inefficient operator of the school as the previous owners paid bonuses and salary increases? May be its M3 and this joker are taking kick back from the school hence these bonuses and increases are not given to teachers!

    All those who got effected by these dastardly actions of this porter ambassador should make complaints to the Human Right Commission of Sri Lanka and ask them for redress. This bugger and his boss – Shitsena – should be taught good lessons for destroying this good school and the good future of thousands of it’s students. Shitsena should account for appointing these kinds of lunatics as ambassadors. That’s the reason the good and decent people are leaving the country in drows for they know well, there is no good future for them so long as these nuts are in charge of the country.

    Never thought that Qatar Police are corrupt. Activists opposing Qatar hosting FIFA Cup will note this.
    Porter-Ambassador A Y S Liyanage now feels that receiving the ‘His Excellency Honourable’ Rajapaksa boys with all that pomp is wasted.

    ASP Liyanage looks like a white van with a tire that got entangled with a piece of red flag from a danger zone. The good news is the white van runs on bio diesel powered by Rajapaksha excreta.

    “An Ambassador is one who ‘lies’ in a Foreign country” , they say. It is very refreshing to hear our Excellency in Doha is doing just that for Silly Sena to best of his ability.

    The report confirms that he is the best liar in Doha for the yahapalana regime of Sri Lanka. So I wish he obliges our President’s request and continue lying there.

    It was the half baked Premadasa who had spoiled the Foreign Service, once had a very high reputation.
    During his time school principals, ASP s with GCE(O/L) qualifications, cooks and drivers all became Diplomates.
    A few years ago one Sinhala cardboard Army guy was sent to a European capital as the driver for SL Ambassador, this guy can’t read English street signs at one point Ambassador was compelled to drive the car to the meeting place.
    Once there were Tamil Ambassadors and Diplomates with high qualifications.
    Today no place for Tamils thanks to Ex-Minister Hameed 25% of the foreign ministry comprise Musulims.
    Even dentists were sent as Consular Officials how is this?
    There are Tamil Ambassadors, High-Commissioners, from South Africa, Malaysia, Mauritius, Singapore and, India are serving in many Western capitals but at SL missions no Tamil DPL s.
    Cheers
