Rajapaksa Capitalises Sampur Outburst, Says Incident Part Of Project To Demoralize War Heroes

Capitalizing the recent sampur outburst by Eastern Province Chief Minister Nazeer Ahamed, former President Mahinda Rajapaksa alleged that the incident was part of a project that began last January to demoralize the country’s war heroes.

Speaking on the recent incident where Ahamed rebuked a Navy Officer, Rajapaksa said, “We suspect that this latest incident is part of the project that began in January last year to demoralise our war heroes. I call upon the government not to sweep this latest incident under the carpet the way they dodged taking action over the incident in the north. It is the duty of the government to formally investigate the conduct of the EP Chief Minister and to take steps to ensure that such incidents do not occur anywhere in the country in future.”

In a statement issued today, the former President noted that the fact that this ugly incident took place in the presence of the American ambassador has added to its seriousness.

Rajapaksa reminded that on a previous occasion when TNA politicians forcibly entered an army camp in the north, the government went out of its way to portray this as a minor incident and to sweep it under the carpet.

“This is now the second such incident. The incidents that took place in the north and in Sampur should not have taken place anywhere in the country. Politicians in any part of the country should not seek to enter army camps without obtaining prior permission or giving due notice. Likewise no politician in any part of the country should ever speak to a uniformed member of the armed forces at a public meeting the way the EP Chief Minister spoke to that naval officer,” he said.

Rajapaksa said that ‘deliberate’ insults directed in this manner by the political authorities at the armed forces that rid the country of the scourge of terrorism, should stop.

However despite Rajapaksa criticism, it was during Rajapaksa’s rule that Army Intelligence officer, Major Chandana Pradeep, was asked to plead guilty over a brawl at the Hilton in 2012 involving Malaka Silva, who had started the fight. The Major was later transferred from the Military Intelligence Corps. Gotabaya Rajapaksa was the Secretary of Defence at that time.

      Dear Former President Mahinda Rajapaksa,

      Did you train the Eastern Province Chief Minister Nazeer Ahamed on Ego preservation and stupidity?

      When Amarasiri heard about this the first time, the toughts were that the MaRa MaRa Chatu MaRa Ego MaRa must have trained the Eastern Province Chief Minister Nazeer Ahamed.

      It is All right. The average IQ of the Paras, whether Sinhala, Tamils or Muslims is 79, and there are plenty to choose from among the population, the politicians, the MP’s, the Minsters, the Chief Ministers and even the Former Presidents.

      National IQ Scores – Country Rankings

      Rank=28 Sri Lanka IQ= 79

      http://www.photius.com/rankings/national_iq_scores_country_ranks.html

      The intelligence scores came from work carried out earlier this decade by Richard Lynn, a British psychologist, and Tatu Vanhanen, a Finnish political scientist, who analysed IQ studies from 113 countries, and from subsequent work by Jelte Wicherts, a Dutch psychologist.

      Countries are ranked highest to lowest national IQ score.

      Rajapakshe the most abusive of his unique nature says nothing about the need to have taken part in the celebrtities of Uganda leader, but droping the kind of statements animating stupid folks. Not any brave journalists brought anything about his acitve particpation in that ceremony, what went on – was not reported yet. why why …still scared still ?

      Not only srilanka entire world watch out.

        Rajaakshe makes every effort to do so whereever he sees chances are there.

        At the time, Tsunami was brtually hit the nation, he abused the funds as no other

        At the time, current disasster is arisen, now PLANNING to travel to Japan.

        But journos stay keeping both orifice so tight, not briging anything about what the bugger had been doing in Uganda, with whom he dealt with there etc.

        He is trying to fish on muddy waters – not being unable to see it further.
        But people are no stupid as appeared to be.

        Rajakashe, you should go to retirment, no need to make you kind of efforts again to create new form of communal violence.. never spread your thoughts that could harm the folks and even become new seeds for new kind of disputes.. If youreally deserves some respect following all the harrassment made to the nation durin gthe last 5 years, you should better be away from active potlics. Today or later, once the turths will surface, no chance your sons to stay that active… you failed only only as a leader, but also as a father… basta.

    This man has become the leading hypocrite amongst our politicians present and past. He has chosen to forget what he did to Sarath Fonseka and Shiranee Bandaranayake-one a General and the other a Chief Justice. What he and his minions did to others is emerging now. On being told of Lasantha Wickrematunge’s murder, his first response was reported to have been, ” Kohede Vadune?” – where was he hit? Was he shocked or. Interested in the mechanics of the murder?

    He has become a pathetic figure, yearning for the limelight he once enjoyed.

    Here is the link to the detailed story on Sambanthan entering a military camp in Kilinochchi. It ends with an interesting question about who was wrong, the LTTE, army or Sambanthan. Much food for thought!

          Our propaganda Meelam says he posted a link but it did not come through. I posted link to his ugly comments that Sampanthar rammed the sentry point that defense official denying that. He did not answer to that. Infolanka’s link is not being allowed by CT. Is this how this guy plays his hide and seek? How he expects us to reply for his links? Can the propaganda Meelam bring it here in a manner a link CT allows so that we can reply to that?

          He has not read other news in those it says Old King comedian has claimed that Provincial Politicians has no authority to enter a Camp. Sampanthar is not a Provincial politician. He is the opposition leader.

          Old King and his son was accused of setting up Eraj Fernando to go with gun when the opposition people visited to Harbor. He swept it under the carpet. He openly said that he dynasty princes should not be punished because he did not punish Richard’s daughter, Dulanjalee. What kind of tongue these clowns has so easily to twist for every occasion.

          Sampanthar was treated respectfully by the Army personnels on that occasion. He always treat any body with the same respect. Defense people had said they do not find any problem the way Sampanthar approached them to see the lands. In Ahamed Nazeer case, all three division have barred him from go to camps. Further the fight between Austin Fernando and Ahamed Nazeer had started at Kinniya, it was from there they both travelled to Sampur. They failed to discuss it there and resolve it in Kinniya.

          Then where did this this clown see a “sweeping under carpet” on this? Further Hakeem, SLFP leader has expressed apologies for the conduct saying as Ahamed Nazeer has regretted the incident.

          The two incidents are not comparison at all. The comedian is putting a knot to the knee and te his bald head. He does not know where to find incidents to politically cash it.

          The Lanakawe’s army is listed as the Rapist Army as one with in the 22 rowdy countries. Lankawe’s army is accused of Genocide. Where was this comedian when those were publicly coming out as reports. When did he replied to OISL report in detail other than flatly denying it? Why is he claiming that somebody trying to put him on UN electric chair without a proper investigation? Why he can not face Foreign and commonwealth Judges and Lawyers? Is he trying to sweep into the drainage, if not under carpet, his Genocide accusistion?

          “What he and his minions did to others is emerging now.”

          Any way what is that one emerging out now?

          What is that you are starting to see newly? Can you tell us how did you find out and confirmed it?

          You really didn’t know that when you supported him? Is that why you left him?

          Very nice story!

        Ben,

        Here is the excerpt from www. Infolanka.com/news:

        ” Sampanthan’s forcible entry; Where it becomes forceful?
        May 26 (SL) The recent event of forcible entry of opposition leader Sampanthan to a military camp in Paravipachchan with a group of nearly 50, including MP Sumanthiran, and MP Sridharanon on April 16th aroused a great deal of public interest. Some of govt ministers disapproved the act saying that people’s representatives can only enter a military camp with proper permission from necessary authorities. more..”.

        I hope you can trace it.

      I am not really a frequent commentator but from my recollection, you were once a staunch ally of this regime.
      What is the evidence that you won’t become one again if and when they return to power for your own benefit? There are too many of your like in this country and hence this sad situation.

      By the way, the new government has been in power for 1+ year, why no progress on the assassination? Is It because as some have speculated Sarath was involved?

          I am well aware of your recent writings as well as your previous ones where you were a staunch ally of Mahinda. You switched when you realized the political winds were changing directions. So I don’t need to read your past comments, you are yet to explain how you are different from the lowly politicians who switch sides for their own benefit.

        “This man has become the leading hypocrite amongst our politicians present and past. “

        The Kettle pointing the finger at the pot. Naren did his best campaign to accuse Sampanthar rammed the sentry point, but the defense denied that. Today, when Old King say that, he is calling Old King a hypocrite. What a comedy is this?

      Dr. RN,
      he has always been making every efforts to do so.
      It is no uncommon to his nature. Now trying to animate stupid folks and create a new kind of clashes – thinking that he could then win. How stupid this man should be. No talks about what kind of talks being held during his recent controversal trip made to Uganda. Can you imagine ?Did you happen to read further information about his trip than the current regime was compelled to pay it as 4.5 lacks for his trip ?
      So long lanken journos would not be netural and realistic about the mans behaviour, he will stay abusing the nation again and again.

    Mahinda says “I call upon the government not to sweep this latest incident under the carpet the way they dodged taking action over the incident in the north. It is the duty of the government to formally investigate the conduct of the EP Chief Minister and to take steps to ensure that such incidents do not occur anywhere in the country in future.”

    This is excellent advice with regard to the charges against the various Rajapakses!
    1 – “Do not sweep those incidents under the carpet”
    2 – “It is the duty of the government to formally investigate the conduct of ..” the Rajapakses during their reign
    3 – And “ensure that such incidents do not occur anywhere in the country in future.”

    Better late than never!

    It is high time Armed Forces move away from Civil Society activities,
    now tat 7 years have lapsed since their involvement brought success.
    Democratic norms dictate it. Petty politicians must learn this soon.
    The Navy Officer may have missed protocol which is paramount in dealing
    with such situations.

    Mahinda Rajapakse MP has once again displayed his stupidity! When he was the President how many MPs, Ministers, Secretaries of Ministries, attacked, raped and killed innocent people. What did he do? In his own words he said he has files and he protected. So why only now he is worried about a tussel between a Navy Officer and a CM? Is Rajapakse so bankrupt he wants to put his head into minor disputes as well. Has he got no better job to do as an MP?

    This Megalomaniac is a joke and an excrement of high stench. Most importantly a stain on the human race. I don’t know what the present administration is doing? Are they hoping that he’d hang himself? It is about time they delivered on their promise.

    Give us the investigation they promised, good governance they promised, a corruption free society they promised. What was the bloody naval officer doing in a school function. If had to be there he should have been there as guest or for security reason and he should never be above an elected office holder who has every right to be there.

    War hero my foot. It was a rebellion put down brutally end of the day most of the victims were civilians a collateral damage because of two megalomaniacs; Mahinda Rajapaksha and Velupillai Prabakaran.

    Please put this man and his family where they belong. In the basement of a prison and let them reflect on their misdeeds.

    This is a very interesting development. First of all what is the role of Navy in a civil school function?. Today the armed forces are showing their dominance over minority Provincial leaders like Ahamed and Sampanthan. Mark my words. THE DAY WILL COME WHEN THE ARMED FORCES WILL RULE THIS COUNTRY.

    Bloody navy officer is a paid servant of the people whereas CM is the embodiment of the people of the Eastern Province. Bloody servant should salute the CM not stop him. Narrate of the navy officer should be charged for not respecting the constitution and dishonorably discharged from service

    After 2015 election victory Ranil went to Jaffna. There he saw the Old King’s summer house was being built. He wanted that as a 5 star Hotel so all the parliamentarian can enjoy it. Then he went to Kilinochchi. There a principal wanted to complain about the conditions the Appe Anuwa was keeping his school. Ranil’s answer was “shut up and sit down”.

    Lankawe’s New King was created on the issue of his son beating a DIG Waidyalankara’s son. Basically the incident was swept under the carpet by Old King, at least for the external consumption. But internally, it was said, it was reused to blackmail New King. DBSJ somewhere else:
    Seeing her husband being assaulted the wife ran up and tried to protect him. She too suffered bruises. At one point the distraught spouse clasped her hands together and begged the gang to stop beating her husband. But the drunken bullies would not budge.The helpless friends too could do nothing and were threatened to keep off.

    Asela then saw two uniformed Policemen at a distance. He stood up despite the kicks and blows and managed to run up to the cops with the assailants giving chase. He was compelled to introduce himself as the son of the Batticaloa DIG and asked for help. The Policemen PC (sgt) 64435 Kulasekaran and PC 70061 Wickramarachchi then tried to stop the assailants.

    The drunk mob was in a pugnacious mood.The vicious attack on Asela continued. When the Policemen tried to shield Asela from the blows they too were manhandled.The young man who had begun the attack on Asela by hitting him first then turned on the cops. He warned the Policemen in Sinhala not to mess with them or face consequences.

    Then came the great revelation. The young man announced that his father was Cabinet minister Maithripala Sirisena. The ministerial brat was none other than Pallewatte Gamaralage Daham Sirisena the 20 year old son of Cabinet Minister of Health and Polonnaruwa district MP Maithripala Sirisena.”http://dbsjeyaraj.com/dbsj/archives/17238

    Mervyn Silva, to purposefully dishonor the UNHRC High Commissioner Navi Pillay, asked her to marry him in the public media. Certainly it is much more than a quarrel among a CM, A governor and and a senior Navy Officer. She complained to Old King personally. Old his in turn, talked incessant thing, but swept everything under carpet.

    An American ambassador’s telex to America (Patricia Butenis)“according to a former Sri Lankan security services official, drug kingpins in Sri Lanka have political patrons in the government, chief among them Dr. Mervin Silva, a Member of Parliament and the Minister of Labor. His son, Malaka Silva, is suspected of trafficking the drug ‘ecstasy’ in Colombo.”

    Read in this CT article how many times Malaka Silva attacked Defense Services and police. Everything was covered up at the end. https://www.colombotelegraph.com/index.php/an-army-major-is-hospitalised-mervyn-silvas-son-malaka-silva-has-done-it-again/

    Come on Man; these all the record of Old Royal Lankawe before Ahamed Nazeer acted like this.

    The world famous case is Wijemuni Vijitha Rohana de Silva beating up of Rajiv Gandhi and latter describing it an attempt to kill Rajiv.

      “We suspect that this latest incident is part of the project that began in January last year to demoralise our war heroes.”

      The project started 2014 November was a triangle personnel fights. Chandrika, New King and Old King. Chandrika’s condition is still not clear. Old King lost. New King won. Ranil picked up the crumb.

      I think best way to honor the war heros is to cancel the Defense Lawyer Paranagama Commission and recognise the soldiers dead in war and pay their relatives their due.

    The Kurunagela MP dreamt to build a empire for him and his family by keeping the forces and clergies happy. The way these groups behaved before and have been behaving since Jan 15, is a clear manifestation of we were so close to become a Pakistan, if not Burma. In such circumstance, first wicket to loose would have been this mad guy if not he made to become a Aung San Suu Kyi- not literally though, cannot change the character. He should be thankful for the commence sensed voter, minorities in particular to take him off the line.

    Although minorities have taught him a lesson, he still believes only way could he come to power back is to play the race game. Why didn’t you voice about the recent two police officers arrest by the CID recently?. The officers’ careers are ruined and had to go through all this because of your exemplary governance, and you will see how many become war zeros if you accept international judges to hear the war crime cases. So long as we have too many fools believing in what you have to say in this island, you have a space.

    Because he has finally spoken, according to his own newspaper DN.

    Batalanada wants a report on Whaibi Nazeer threatening the Navy Commander in Sampur.

    Does he want the Report from his Nephew?.Or does he want it from the US Ambassador?.

    Does he want it from Wahabi Party SL Muslim Congress which is now part of the UNP ?.

    Or does he want it from the Wahabi Nazeer himself.

    It is all on Tape and all souls who are connected and even the not connected have seen it on Derana , and Sirasa.

    Ayubowan Mr RajaPUKsa,
    Hail Hitler, the customary Nazi salute to you in becoming the greatest Sinhala Buddhist HYPOCRITE of the history of Thumbapanni. We thought you would stay back in Kampala-Uganda. Mangala put his neck and his carrot out for you expecting you will never return. Cheeya! You even swallowed that carrot in its whole that was bait for you. Maanga even paid the rest of your U-gandaya entourage thinking that you have company. But you Sir rightly belong here with our modaya’s of this country. Never did Maanga expect that will use the return ticket because the FCID is tightened their noose around your “ranavirru” family. Imagine the “demoralizing” done when Yoshitter scuttled that young ranavirru Navy officer’s dreams by stealing his scholarship from studying at Dartmouth Naval College in UK? Then how our brothers in the forces that were mercilessly thrashed with iron rods, bicycle chains and poles by Navy thugs at a rugby match? My goodness Sir, we shouted Buddhan-Saranag. Some went Karannung (rolling) to get away from the beating. Then HITLER Sir, what about your Namal son who cheated law exam to become a black coat and forged his way into Parliament to take oaths as an MP? He then attacked that referee over a petty affair on a rugby ground. A few months later, your Namal putha and that Yoshitter – ranaviruwa got together and murdered that Thajudeen boy who confronted your Hitler family no? Fraudulent black then gradated himself to become a turn coat Murderer! Do the rest of our meeharakka’s in our villages know what your “Ranavirru” family has been upto? I can spice up more of your family stories like how our ranavirru General Sarath Fonseka was beaten and humiliated by that lunatic General Manwaddu with orders from your brotherly GOAT-ranaviruwa to bash the “Wakkugaddu” and kicked our ranawirru Sir’s testicles before being dragged like a animal to an abattoir. Hitler Sir, do I need to go on further and put in pure Sinhala that you will dare not understand? No worries, I will not bore you any further because an ‘IDIOT’ as uttered by Mr. Nazeer Ahamed will never comprehend.

    We have had a large scale natural disaster in our country, Mara was silent all that while. He didn’t come out and offer any assistance to anyone.
    Yet at the drop of a hat he is jumping up and down when communal undertones are present. Is this the kind of man we need as a representative of our interests? This man is a divide and rule tactician just like our colonial masters.
    Such people do what they do because they don’t have anything good for anyone, just deceiving you and I on the basis of our religion, language, cast or creed. Shameless selfish greedy slimy thieving manipulative pig.
    Let him answer to his crimes first. He had done enough damage to our country to last generations to come.

      MARA has been suffering from INFERIORITY COMPLEX… that is above his ego.

      Now with current RULERS being invited by Japan, UK and other high powers, he may have begged srilankens living in Japan to support him for a PVT visit which JO is reported as MR will next be travelling to JAPAN on the 7th June.

      Anyways, this man should be banned by any countries, since the magnitude of abuses he has perpetrated to thsi country is beyond all ethics and moral levels.

      Authoriteis that care for Investigations should work hard and efffcient to corner this man for ever, not allowing him to go on safair he thinks is right.

    Anybody who saw the video clip will observe that the CM misunderstood what the Navy officer had said (for the journalists to move out of the stage). If the Navy officer wanted the CM out of the stage he would have behaved differently. One should observe that the Naval Officer’s facial expression (with an amused smile) and body movements are not compatible with some one who is angry, demanding or threatening somebody. But it clearly shows that the CM goes into a continuous tirade.
    The correct thing for the CM to do is to state that he misunderstood the Naval Officer and he feels embarrassed of what happened. I feel he does not need to apologize to the Navel officer. The longer he delays, our opportunistic politicians are going to take advantage of the situation.
