Rajapaksa Govt Whitewashes Mob Crashing Meeting Of Families Of Missing People

The Government of President Mahinda Rajapaksa has once again thrown in its lot with unruly mobs disrupting legal private events taking place in the country recognising the group that stormed into the Centre for Society and Religion on Monday as a NGO demanding that their grievances be heard too.

MonksThe Ministry of External Affairs reacted strongly against the presence of the diplomatic community at the meeting in Maradana, saying certain diplomatic corps were ‘involved in a manner lacking objectivity’. The diplomats were present at the meeting to listen to the experiences of the families of disappeared from the Northern Province, many of them families who had surrendered their children to the military when the war ended in May 2009.

Disregarding the widely available video and photographic evidence the Government in its statement regarding the incident blatantly distorts the facts claiming that an argument between the organisers and the invading ‘NGO’ had led to a tense situation on the premises.

The CSR is private property belonging to the Catholic Church and the invading mobs led by Buddhist monks trespassed the building and stormed the meeting, shouting obscenities and terrorising organisers and victim families in the premises.

“While recognizing the fundamental right to freedom of assembly and expression, the Ministry wishes to point out that that, once again, a certain section of the diplomatic corps appears to be involved in a manner lacking in objectivity, in events organized for a particular region and community. This has led to the emergence of a pattern of such potentially volatile situations giving rise to the perpetuation of mistrust amongst communities at a sensitive juncture in the country’s history,” the MEA said in its statement released on Tuesday.

Going further to play apologist to the violent mobs, the Government urged the diplomatic community to “be more conscious of local sensitivities” when attending what it called “events of an emotive nature”.

The Government’s attitude and defence of the unruly mob removes all doubt about the link between the regime and these mobs that act with impunity, activist lawyers said.

The CSR event was the latest civil society meeting to be disrupted by protesting mobs who are inevitably successful during each of their raids in getting the events and workshops cancelled. It remains unclear how these invading mobs are able to get information about these events even when the meetings are kept closely guarded secrets in order to prevent this manner of disruption.

Monday’s mob which called itself the Association of Families of Missing People from the South at the police station soon after the incident have now titled themselves the Dead and Missing Persons Parents Front, an unheard of organisation that has gained publicity and recognition from the Government of Sri Lanka in the days since their mob assault on the meeting in Maradana.

      Where is Sinali SHIIL Wagude, Shill Malnda Senevitatana and the other Shill and whitewashes? Too busy elsewhere shilling?

      Death threat on Navagattegama teacher
      August 5, 2014 06:00 pm

      http://www.adaderana.lk/news/-death-threat-on-navagattegama-teacher

      Susila Herath, a school teacher of Navagattegama Navodya Vidyalaya who won a lawsuit against ex-PC member Ananda Sarath Kumara (UPFA), has received a death threatening letter today (5) morning.

      A senior police officer from the Nawagattegama police told Ada Derana that the police inquiries have been already commenced following a complaint lodged by the teacher.

      Herath said that the lives of her and her family members are now in danger with the posted letter she received today morning at around 11.30 a.m.

      “I killed the witness…I will rape and kill you. You ruined my political career….,” the letter says. The letter has also quoted the names of some prominent politicians who would support the anonymous sender as well.

      The dead body of a school teacher who is the fourth witness (an eye witness) in the case was found from a well, close approximate to the Navagattegama Navodya Vidyalaya, last Friday morning.

    What more proof does anyone need to prove that the Government of MARA is behind all atrocities committed by the Thug Monks and Street Thugs ably assisted by Bro GOTA the goat. I always say that these goons are from the forces and police in civil attires, who are supplied by GOTA the goat. They cannot find volunteer civilians to cause this much carnage and destruction to a country and it’s image. It is only the people fattened by the bones dished out from kickbacks and commissions plundered from the masses by the MARA & Family are used to do their dirty jobs. Starting from Kiribath ceremony for the ouster of CJ to the latest one including the Aluthgama/Berwuela incidents, all done with Government backing. No doubt whatsoever.

    No person with an iota of civility or conscious will ever step into this type of behaviour, only hooligans will. They say FOOLS RUSH IN WHERE ANGELS FEAR TO TREAD. These fellows are real fools to take orders from MARA & Co to tarnish the image of our country internationally and be a party to make Sri Lanka a pariah state.

    Where are you Sumane, must be pulling some flesh out of the bones. Please join in after your meal.

    Jarapasse sent the Monk mobs to SiriKotha to attack them and finally UNP end up in apologizing to mob monks in public.

    So shutting down CSR is peanut for him.

    Jarapasse can fool all the people all the time.

      “Are these Budhist Monks or bunch of Monkeys jumping for bananas?.”

      Probably the descendants of Hanuman’s monkey army from “South India”.

        I think it is a disgrace for the monkeys to be compared to this unruly, cruel, indecent, and blood thirsty monks. According to the legend the Hanuman brigade seems to be very disciplined and law abiding, otherwise they would not have built the bridge or help Rama to find Sita

    The Video clip you mention could be the handy work of Channel 4.

    These monks need to be put on a strict diet!! Nothing, but water for a month. Then they will calm down!! There must be only a handful of “real Budhist monks” in Sri Lanka, rest are all thugs in monks clothing thanks to the patronage of the Royals!!

    The bone-headed puppet masters of the ruling regime simply do NOT get it.They do NOT understand that those who are missing loved ones seek answers and closure. It’s human. Sinhalese, Tamil, whoever. Because the GoSL cannot or are not willing to provide these answers, the hurting people have to turn to others, outside the government, even foreigners who are committed to help. The punakku heads who run this country cannot understand the simple premise; if you cannot tell tell us, we will try others who might be able to help. Allowing and turning a blind eye to virulent scum who disrupt law abiding citizens only begs the question: WHAT has GOVERNMENT got to HIDE?
