Qatar Ambassador Deprives Lankan Kids From Sitting Their School Exams

Scores of children of Stafford Sri Lankan School Doha were deprived from sitting for the first semester examinations recently, as Ambassador A.S.P Liyanage ordered the school authorities to not permit those from doing so, as they had not paid their school fees.

The school authorities under the orders of Ambassador Liyanage had then rounded up all the children who could not sit their exams into a classroom and had proceeded to further ridicule them by filming them off their mobile phones.

“I cant figure out why the school authorities had to humiliate our children in this manner ‘”said a dejected parent who recently had been made redundant by his company and was facing difficulties in paying his child’s school fees.

Earlier in late January 2019, whilst addressing the school authorities at a meeting, Ambassador Liyanage had officially made an announcement and ordered the school to take such measures for non-payment of school fees.

Colombo Telegraph is in possession of that particular audio recording.

In the audio recording Ambassador Liayange also blamed Sri Lankan President Maithripala Sirisena saying “I am forcefully being kept here in Qatar. I have tendered my resignation on several occasions but President Sirisena is not accepting it”.

Many parents of the school children who were deprived of sitting their first semester examination had then proceeded to the Supreme Council of Education in Doha Qatar, to make an official complain regarding this issue.

Over the last 17 years and ever since the commencement of the Stafford Sri Lankan School in Doha, not a single child has ever been deprived of sitting an examination.

Despite the financial crisis experienced in 2008 -2010 and also the ongoing blockade since June 2017, most parents were given opportunities to settle their outstanding dues through various means depending on their situation and ability.

Since September 2018 and the illegal and forceful takeover of the school by Ambassador A.S.P Liyanage the entire scenario of this only Sri Lankan Community School built by its founder Kumudu Fonseka and the Board of Trustees have taken a twist for the worse. Ambassador Liyanage then laid siege to over Rs 500 million that lay in the school’s bank accounts.

Over 400 African, Pakistani and Afghan children have been enrolled by Ambassador Liyanage, destroying the values that the school was founded upon.

“Now this is not a Sri Lankan Community School anymore. This is like entering the African continent. All our Sri Lankan values and cultural beliefs have changed. There are even more African security guards deployed in the school by Ambassador Liyanage’s daughter’s father in law Pantalin Fernando’s security company loitering in the premises. It’s a huge culture shock our children are facing at moment” said a parent who did not wish to be named.

      What is then the role of AMBASSDOR as the ruler of the roost there ? This is exactly the way GMOA in SL does, – those doctors in GMOA are not even fulfilling their hours regularly, but work for the agendas of some politicians.. But the bangwagan seems moving forward, as no corrective actions being taken by anyone.

    Since this Maithripala appointed Ambassador was appointed to Qatar he has been playing havoc. Before him the group that ran the school paid bonuses and salary increases to the staff. Under this white coat joker the bonuses and salary increases have been stopped. Further his hooligans are going to the school and the campus of teachers and bullying them with various demands. This is the type of people uneducated, uncivilized, constitution violating Maithripala is appointing to overseas missions.

    Lunatic Sirisena sent this rascal potter embassidor, not to serve the Sri Lankans community in Qatar but to rule them. This SOB be shot alive for doing so much harm to his fellow citizens. He and his master that deaf and blind, and insensitive, big talking, bugger Sirisena should rot in the hells for doing these bad things for their fellow beings.

    A S P Liyanage was recalled, according to media. This man is a disgrace to humanity.
    President should appoint a respectable Foreign Service Officer as the Ambassador to Qatar. No more monkeys as Ambassadors, please.

      “President should appoint a respectable Foreign Service Officer as the Ambassador to Qatar. No more monkeys as Ambassadors”
      Wrong….. The president has no power to do anything as he has repeatedly violated the constitution and ‘SHOULD BE IMPEACHED’ first.

    Can some good soul please drive this white van ASP off a cliff. This idiot and his piece of red lingerie throttled around his neck is an insult to the dress. We must end this saga soon by replacing this human garbage so that CT can report on much deserving and important topics. When I was in Qatar several years ago, I met a gentleman named Dr. Karunadasa who was much helpful. I doubt if he had foreign service experience. That person had a descent reputation is what I was told by our expats. He too must have been another pundung karaya to some politician like our notorious DayanJ. However, the need of the hour is to get rid of these Rakapaksha feces eaters like ASP (A*se Sucking Pervert).

    All of us know that this bugger is a crook. He was not doing any service to the country as Ambassador. From day one he was only engaged in business and then he found the School was a gold mine. He then took control of the School and embezzled the finances and ruined the whole School, both its administration and the educational activities! We must hold the one who appointed him as Ambassador (for reasons only known to him) responsible for not only the destruction of the School also for tarnishing the reputation of the Embassy,

    Rotting of once world class Foreign Service started during uneducated Premadas times ,who appointed School Principles ,Cooks and Paper collecters and Police officers .

    Hamid played his part to Mususlimization of Foreign Service it was told even for a messenger post for SL overseas missions , Hameed selected only Mususlims and personally interviewd them.

    Now here goes so called Ambassador is running a private school .. He He He.

    Even in Pakistan & India diplomates have to pass foreign service examination and promotion is strictly on merits .

    Few years ago one Mususlim Dentist has got a Consular position at SL Embassy in Saudi Arabia later this was cancelled by new government.

    Porter-Ambassador A S P Liyanage, not content with tarnishing our international reputation, is challenging “Dare remove me”.
    .
    Any comments from ASP L on the following in ‘Daily Mirror’ of 05 February?
    [“Notorious underworld drug kingpin Makandure Madush and several other Sri Lankans were among a group of 20 suspects reportedly arrested in Dubai during a joint raid carried out by the law enforcement authorities today.
    Sources said popular Sri Lankan singer Amal Perera, his son Nadimal and underworld criminals identified as Keselwatte Dinuka and Kachcipani Imran were among those arrested”.

    These Kudu Lords in Dubai have to be brought to SL and perhaps the leader Madush could be appointed as the Minster of Finance. Poor SL singers and actors too have to lick these crooks owing to their ill gotten money for survival. What a shame and just see how Sinhala Lions and Muslim holly men are involved in big time Drug business. Allah said no alcohol so they dont involve with alcohol but certainly with Drugs. Look at that Muslim crook in beard and pretending to be a good Muslim to Dubai Muslims. Buddha said no alcohol and no drugs but our heroes are well and truly into both.

    Now there are dhemalus in the north involved in ganja import and the Douglas Goon appears to have a hand in it.

    Mother Lanka is already established as world’s Drug Transit Centre and it is a multi-national operation. Americans, Pakis, Indians, Iranians, Afgans to name a few. Then comes prostitution, another big time industry in the divine land.

    So why can our crooked politicians and the appe anduwa make these sins as legal and perhaps make them as part of our culture and ask some historians to include in some text books. For a little some thing our historians can create any history we want. As it stands country has finally ended up in the hands of crooked sinhala politicians, drug lords and international pimps.

    Come on MY3 you have achieved.

      The highest sales of cigarettes,alcohol are in Arab countries today also largest audience for blue films.No one care about their BUK.
      HARAM is just a lip service every Musulim consume Alcohol but within the walls.
      When fasting started all rich Arabs will come to Europe to taste Wine & Infidel chicks.
      In Maldives and Malaysia weekend drug parties are common sure they pray 5 times.
      He He He Wahabi Isulam prohibit not only drugs ,alcohol but also jewellery,flower decoration .
      But for selling drugs in Dubai you must give these guys LANKA RATNA title.
      Cheers
