Prison Officers To Face Investigation Over Shielding Tangalle Murderer-Rapist

Just days after the verdict given on the murder case of British aid worker Khuram Shaikh, the Prisons Department has stated that UPFA strongman and former Chairman of Tangalle Pradeshiya Sabha, Sampath Chandrapushpa Vidhanapathirana – the main suspect found guilty of murdering the British aid worker and raping his fiancé – maybe able to walk out a free man in 12 ½ years instead of undergoing the full term of 20 years as per the judgment.

Local media reports that have quoted the Prisons Department states that according to the ranking system that is applicable to prisoners, an individual assigned a sentence of 20 years of rigorous imprisonment can reduce their sentence to 12 years and nine months on ‘good behaviour’.

Moreover, it has also been reported that a separate investigation has been launched into the actions of five officials attached to the Prisons Department, who had shielded the Vidanapathirana while escorting him back to the Prison from the Colombo magistrate courts after the verdict was given.

Prisons Commissioner C Pallegama had been quoted in media stating that the personnel had no authority to commit such an act and that the investigation will be on the matter. The investigation had been instructed following complaints by media personnel who were obstructed by the prisons officials in question who removed their headgear and using them as shield to cover the video cameras.

    These officers seem to be actively following the K A Sumansekera doctrine where all such offences are permissible as a way of life for the majority inhabitants

    (i know there will be one dislike for this comment at least and no guesses as to who does it hahahaha)

      “following the K A Sumansekera doctrine “

      Is Sumanasekera, Jim Softy, Lorenzo, Leela all the same people?

      Are they Moderators of lankweb?

      Just Curious.

    These Boot lickers jolly well will shield a rapist and a murderer, but will stand idle when innocent women and children are mercilessly attacked by BBS Goons.

    Shame on these fellows who will scoop down to any level to please their murderous Masters.

    This is the pathetic state of affairs of our Miracle of Asia under the DEALERSHIP of our DICTATOR IDI MAHIN. They say the qualities of the Leader of a Nation will trickle down to the masses. This is a classic example of that. That is why most of the people including the Police,STF, Provincial Counsellors and even the Judges are behaving in a deplorable manner. The thuggish behaviour is slowly but surely trickling down to all aspects of the society. It is really a crying shame.

    Surely it is ABA SARANAI TO SRI LANKA, AS A NATION, If corrective action is not made by the people to rid the MASTERS OF CRIME (MARA FAMILY & CO) from governance of our beautiful Island, otherwise Sri Lanka will look a beautiful place with roads and buildings, void of human beings, only ANIMALS IN THE FORM OF HUMANS.

      Ansar !! This is no wonder. For, these bootlickers are trained fostered to do this, also it’s in their blood by birth.

      Anyone visiting Mt. Lavinia Magistrates courts can see these khaki uniform criminals taking bribes from poor ‘Gamé'(village) men- who bring some food for their relatives in the cell- awaiting their turn for the call.
      The most laughable thing is that the Judge shall continue to deliver smart judgments against powerless people just a few yards from this cell like a book worm – quoting so many things from history……!!?

    Officers are following the orders of their big bosses. We have shown the world we are a banana republic, with no laws being followed, no justice for victims of murder or violence, politicians who really are thugs get away with brutal crimes because they are protected by the highest members of the government, and there is absolutely no rule of law.
    How can we expect other nations to respect our nation, when we show we are like uncivilized barbarians, when it suits us?

    It is reliably learned that MaRa himself has ordered the investigation. Mara’s wishes are that the Prison Officers be awarded a Promotion on tax payer account for conscientiously obeying unofficial official instructions. The purpose of the investigation is to officially verify, before awarding the promotions, whether the Prison Officers in fact shielded Sampath Chandrapushpa Vidhanapathirana, the rapist and murderer, from the Press cameras.

    Prison officers shields Sampath Chandrapushpa Vidanapathirana by their Official Caps. 7 Navel officers who Raped 11 years and 9 years under aged Tamil Girls (Kiri Sappayo) shielded by non other than Sri Rohana Manaranjana, Sri Lanka Rajabiwansabidana 3 Sinhaladeeshawara, Saddarmadveepa Chakrawarthi, Palapurudu, Nihathamani and 3 Sanwedee Jathiye Aadambaraka Thaththa/Jathiye Aadambarakara Pin-Piya by lifting his white Sarong and covering faces of 7 Ranaviru Officers. Probably Jathiye Aadambarakara Thathha/Pin-Piya doesn’t know that his secret parts are open in out.

    Suba Anagathayak!

    We have some thing radically wrong with our police and armed forces and we should find ways to converting themselves to become more civilized human beings.

    Unfortunately the behaviors of the police men are just a symbolic of the entire system.

    Loyalty and obedient beyond basic ethic and values are definitely disaster.

    Look at the picture how the criminal is cosying up to the policemen.

    The Presidential, Provincial, and General Elections are coming up, as soon as the elections are over this criminal will be pardoned and released in 2 years.

    This criminal is the ruling clan’s right-hand-man. They need him for the up coming elections.

    In other news sites it is said that the criminal is living a luxurious life with air conditioned room, television, mobile phone, regularly visiting guests(some are high profiled), meals from 5 star hotels, taken out of prison for night clubs, prison guards as his servants, etc.

    I wonder why this Prisoner is travelling in a luxury vehicle and not in the normal prison van. How come a man guilty of a murder and rape case sit at the end and the two prison guards sits huddle together, are they allowing him to run from their custody or trying to prove he. Is a very important man.

    When they transport other prisoners of the Rank of General they never allowed him such better facilities. I am dead sure the prison officer will get rewarded for helping the Prince Namal’s good friend.

      It is all becuse this man should have the blood of president.

      Else, no other theories can prove as to why the bugger president allows things to fall in terms of law of the country.

      Not any presidents have paved the way criminals to breed but Rajapakshes.

      That should boomerang on them, sooner than later is my wish.

    One has to be born a Sinhalese to perform shameless acts like what the prison guards were doing. Only a Sinhalese will shamelessly cover up criminals for personal benefit and think good and right of it. Didn’t we see this through out the Khuram’s case? Do you think if Khuram was a Tamil of Sri Lankan origin, would this Sinhalese bastard Vidana Pathirana be sentenced by an equally bastardised Sinhalese Police and Justice system consisting of Sinhalese bastards? One has to be Sinhalese to use one’s authority and rape underage tamil girls in Kayts and threaten those families not to publicize the event. One has to be a Sinhalese bitch like Anoma Dissanayake to be the head of NCPC to keep deaf and blind over those rapes bcos they were done by our patriotic Sinhalese boys while making a blatant illegal raid on the missionaries for Charity (a sector of mother Theresa’s home) in Morotuwa claiming that they were raping and having illegal activities with adolescent girls which later was found totally and absolutely untrue for which the bitch Anoma later apologized but shamelessly refused to resign from her post. The only qualification to perform such cowardly, shameless and bastardly acts is to be Sinhalese.

    Sadly this corruption is not restricted to the Sinhala, Both Tamil and Sinhala politians play the race card to get elected and regardless of race makes corrupt decisions and reaps benefits of office, just look at the road through Wilpattu and settlements in buffer zone as an example of corrupt acts.
