President’s Media Division Responsible For “Fake Letter” Discrediting Speaker: CID Investigation Underway

Colombo Telegraph can reveal that the President’s Media Division was directly involved in publishing a fake letter suggesting that Speaker Karu Jayasuriya had sought Chief Justice Nalin Perera’s opinion on the no confidence motion against former President Mahinda Rajapaksa.

The Speaker’s Office lodged a complaint with the CID today to probe into the fake letter which was widely shared by supporters of the purported government.

The Speaker’s Office, issuing a statement, confirmed that no such letter went from Speaker Karu Jayasuriya to the Chief Justice and the fake letter was originated by the President’s Media Division to discredit the Speaker.

Substantial evidence has surfaced to suggest that the PMD was instrumental in planting the letter on social media through an individual named Irosh Hettige who went on to publish it on his Facebook profile. Hettige, a staffer at the Presidential Secretariat, continued to publicize the fake letter on his Facebook profile even after the Speaker’s Office issued a denial. He also made a public disclaimer about the act.

Police sources said further investigations into the letter would be carried and action would be taken against perpetrators for forging documents. “Based on the Speaker’s request we will inquire into the letter and question everyone who was involved in the act,” a highly-placed CID source with direct knowledge of the investigation told Colombo Telegraph.

    To hell with the President and his goons. Power is with the people, they put him in that place, and temporarily gave him the powers as a scared trust to administer the country for and on behalf of them. The people always have the right and will to take it away from him. Not to scheme and do dastardly things, if he violates the rust of the people , the consequences for those misdeeds and dirty deeds going to be huge. His is bound to account and pay dearly for it. It’s high time for all to hound this man for his immoral and high handed actions which are illegal, undermocratic and unconstitutional, and brought untold demage to the people and the country.

        Amarasiri, you are an expert on IQ. In your expert opinion, how much would be the IQ of “Sirisena, the Traitor, Sevalaya (Sleaze), Mala-Perethaya ( living off the dead), Patholaya (unprincipled, backbone less man), Pachaya (liar) and Imposter”?

          edwin rodrigo,

          Below 79, the mean IQ of Sri Lanka. Need to do a test to find the exact number. Will he subject himself for that test? He may, if somebody premises to make him President again. Did Rajapaksa do that?

          National IQ scores. Country rankings.

          This got nothing to do the I Q of Mr Amarasiri We all could see with our open mind and eyes how Sirisena destroyed the country.. If you cant’t see that you are blind and dumb. The so called president of srilanka violated the constitution and lied and lied again and again. The way he lies he is not even fit to take the lowest paying job anywhere in the world. He is a manipulator and lier. He should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law . The whole world is against this rascal. He talks ,behaves and acts like a baboon in a banana republic and we should call him so.We all should be ashamed of ourselves for calling him a president and electing him to the highest position in the country. Mr Amarasiri gave him the correct titles. Thank you sir, I take my hat off to you. You deserve it for telling the truth but not that vagabond.

      Lanken Govt under Gamarala is becoming worst than that of Saudi.

      Next days, we can also hear misterious deaths in PRESIDENTIAL secreatariat.

      Ones enter the office, would not come back just being caught by the same procedures Jamal Kashogi faced last month in Saudi Embassy in Turkey. Now US strong man fully supports the alleged killer of the journalist.

      Sena,
      It is true power is with people. Unfortunately more than half of the Sinhalese people do not know the truth because most of the media is under the control of the richest person Mahinda. They only access to Mahinda control media. Mahinda & Co are good at spreading lies and making people to believe those lies. There should be mass scale programme at village level to challenge these lies. But I don’t think that we are doing that.

        Opposition must start a grassroot level program to educate the people . Don’t delay it. Must start it from now on. I did it here during a former Pesidential elections and it worked. Don’t forget truth will always prevail.You must go from door to door and emphasize how dangerous President Sirisena and Ex President are. Submit it to voters with all the proof you have now. Good Luck.

      Alzheimer patients under CURRENT Mafia Boss (Mahinda Fake Primer Minister) keep on praising about the FAKE cabinet decisions.

      We read following guys as Alzheimer patients and they make any evasive statements not thinking twice. These men are like Kudallo… leeches keep on sucking the blood of innocient people yet today.

      Instead of sending them to Homes for aged, but to hang on with Parliament affairs abusing millions of people s funds are beyond all bearing

      John Senviratne (77 years)- was seen whispering violent MPs in the parliament last week
      Vasidewa Nanandyakara (79 years)was seen whispering violent MPs in the parliament last week
      Dew Gunasekara (83 years)
      Rajakashe himself (73 years)was seen whispering violent MPs in the parliament last week
      Nimal Siripala De Silva (74 years)

    This document is similar to the document that MR media prepared and handed to Tissa Attanayake that published an Agreement with forged signatures of Ranil Wickremasinghe and Sambandhan agreeing to grant Federalism, which was distributed before the 2015 Presidential Election. Third grade Buggers in this country who are from the gutter.

      yes,but why didn’t ranil take actio’n on that?It is being dragged for years.That fellow attanayake should have been in prison now.He took 500 mln from MR to cross over.

      As for this letter same ting will happen.Like going to the toilet.First a lot of contemplation,Then a lot of noise and then the matter will be dropped.

      Everyone in parliament have skeletons in their cupboards or favours they owe..They cannot take action against each other without retaliation.For example presidents brothers owe a lot to Gota during his time as defence secretary.

    Mad Rascal Hopperman has now turned into a vicious criminal as the whole world can see. His illicit sexual liaisons are also now coming to light. That is why the Pathola Tyrant is now totally out of control. He is resorting to downright shameless underhanded tactics to cling to power and avoid total exposure. The earlier we oust him from power the better for the future of our children. Time is running out.

    Software to detect plagiarised material are available. These are used to detect plagiarised speeches. Those caught out get away with an apology. A Nobel Literature Laureate has been exposed. Books have been taken off shelf and so on.
    .
    World over, fake news is now a recognised way of misleading people. Unscrupulous users have been known to use Facebook as a medium to contract dissemination of fake news to make good money. Till Facebook is able to detect and block fake news, this media must be ignored.
    .
    The so-called letter from the Speaker to CJ SL, has been established as a fake. Facebook was used
    Will we ever get to the bottom?
    No way. Remember the Police has been placed under Defence Ministry. Says it all.

    Gon Sirisena is the lowest calibre President that Sri Lanka has ever had. No wonder that he is trying all the dirty tactics to discredit his oponents.

    Gamini: That “Document” carried the “FORGED” Signatures of MY3 & RW. A case was filed against Tissa Attanayake. You know what happened to the case. For “FOUR” times the case was called, and the two “WITNESSES” viz. MY3 & RW did not RESPOND the summons. Next, if both do not respond the summons, this case most probably will be thrown out. All these men in politics are in one family of FRAUDSTERS. This letter that has been sent to CJ is of the same classification.

    Hoooooooooo, all organized protests, sinister remarks, various types of insults and now this fake letter to discredit the Speaker are clear evidence that he has REFUSED TO cut a deal with the President.
    Well done, Mr. Speaker. Keep up your sanity.
    It is the same with former President.
    President tried various underhand games and political-witch hunt against the former President for 4 years to no success. Then he hatched a plot along with some others in the JO to tame the former President which saw its success. My heart goes out to former President. He needed not to be in this position at all.

      why you shameful bitch – continue supporting a multi murderer none other than Mahinda Rajakashe ? To me, if he would have been hung on public, I have no the slightest sadness. I think this man should be hung in Hague: Why a man to ruin this nation, to this deep should be MR s power intoxication.
      See, how many of them were in the parliament, behaves that ill..entire world put lankens as IDIOTs.
      Thanks go to ballige putha Rajakshe..who was also seen with those criminal loyalists.

        Mind your own damn business.
        I support whoever I want. I don’t need your permission.
        I withdraw my support if only Mahinda goes for elections with Maithri betraying 5.8 million people who voted him in 2015 and stayed like glue to him for 4 years.

          What an argument ? CHampa, we dont mind you ve been gummed to your oldest profession, but never forget to see ir gith yet today.

          Man or woman are u insane ?

          I have my lovely ones that are even nonagenarians that need more care as aged people. Also we help cancer patients back in home country back and forther as we can do so.
          Some of them wrote me E-mails worrying as never times before. They ve been spending their later day life. They dont want any additional pains and anxities.
          Most of them are telling the same, as never in the history, they have been worrying about lanken democracy being destroyed with the power greedy actions being taken by mad dogs.
          One is a retired teacher and other two are really in need are elderly weda mahathayas. They ve been very worrying… as their words depict.
          If things would turn out to be worse, even trade embargo may be the result next days.
          Cancer drugs are already in scarce as I got o know form some friends in Colombo.
          All in all, LET s hope NATURE would take these BALLIGEPUTHA DUO so that we can see it beyond SOONER than later.

      Let s wait what SIRISENA has to say on this letter. I would like to know who is this Iroshi hettige… these men are low class men that would do anything to be good books to MEEHARAKA Rajakashe clan.
      I think CID should reveal the truth sooner than later. Entire world will further rally round to fight against BALLIGE putha Rajakshe Not even China will support him any further.

    The most prominent feature in this FAKE LETTER is its wordings.
    This letter is poorly worded by someone most probably who has no knowledge of writing professional letters.
    Even the language. I don’t think a Speaker will ever write to the CJ in Sinhala.
    Overall, another poor show by the Gamarala and company.

    Apart from the investigation on Speaker’s complaint Hon. CJ also should take action against the perpetrators for bringing disrepute to his Office and causing damage to his dignity.
