Ranil Slams Transparency Sri Lanka: No Politics At Prime Minister’s Office

The Prime Minister’s office has today criticized Transparency International Sri Lanka for submitting a misleading letter to the the Elections Commissioner and the media, which accused the Prime Minister’s office being used for politics.

Rejecting the claim the Prime Minister’s office wrote to Transparency International Sri Lanka today and stated that legal advice was sought prior to the signing of the MOU between the United National Party and other UNFGG member parties.

The PM Secretary’s letter stated that Temple Trees is made up of three sections within the premises that houses the Prime Minister’s Office, a large hall where the former President Mahinda Rajapaksa used for political purposes and the Prime Minister’s residence.

According the law the Prime Minister can utilize the Prime Minister’s residence at Temple Tress as he wishes.

The said MOU was signed at the Prime Minister’s residence and not the PM’s office as accused by Transparency International wrote E.M.S.B Ekanayake.

    Defeated, corrupt dictator destroyed the dignity of that beautiful, colonial public building. Additional construction to host large groups of Rajapassa worshippers have utterly damaged the true charm of Temple Trees.

    Former uncivilized dictator used both Temple Trees and President’s House like inherited private property. Shamelessly occupying both. I would presume a serious violation of law.

    Excellent that Transparency has brought attention to this kind of issues as well.

    cheers!

      More to the point, that Transparency SL file a criminal case against Arjuna Mahendran, his son-in-law, Aloysius and the Firm Perpetual Treasuries for Insider Trading at the Central Bank.

      There is a clear cut case of INSIDER TRADING given the bid specifications submitted by Perpetual Treasuries that is PROOF that they had Privileged INFORMATION. This amounts to Insider trading.

      Why is Transparency dragging its feet on this?

        They aren’t dragging their feet, there is no such thing as ‘inside trading’ in bond markets. If you knew anything about the subject you would know that.
        The mere fact that you are bringing this up in a totally different context proves you have a personal axe to grind. tut tut

          Do you know the meaning for ” Inside Trading ” ?
          Evidence clearly shows what happened. Don’t think we are fools, like RW think he can fool the people.

      Ranil is making every effort to teach civlized manners to the nation. But not many would get it even what it means to be transparent. Alone the fact, that not many added comments under the topic says everything.

      This nation is filled with born idiots. That has nothing to do with having a degree, the majority claiming higher literacy rate etc etc.. but their genetics are so lawless. This is what we see today. I hate everytime back inthe country not knowing why people in general behave so. Even my family woudl say, MR is good just because he has opend high ways ..
      MR is good he has made Hambantota a new town.
      MR is good just because they feel that his mighty allowed LTTE eleimination. MR is good he fertilized villageers to run all crime friendly businesses.
      MR is good just because no nothign is held standard in the country.
      MR is good not many suffer SENDING their house wives to middle east – leaving the young ones getting caught by DRUGs and drug dealings.

      MR is good he is the one who dont behave like colombites being neo colonists
      MR is good even if his squads send youngs ones going against their politicies vanishing

      MR is good even if etc…

      They the majority of the poeple have no brains – skulls are filled with all extrements since Genetic expressions are influenced by RAJAPAKSHE kith an kin.
      Actually, LANKA SHOUDL have free media – what we PLUCK today is what the RAJAPAKHE INFLUENCED MEDIA MEN have done to those village folks over the last ten years.

      You guys may know what happened to Northkoreans .. or how they behave make them like to their leaders as if they clean ONIONS, they start sheding tears, if not those family would surely be attacked.

        @Leelagemalli

        Are you saying that “Ranil is Good simply because he is Ranil” ???? And because of that, he deserves to be PM or Prez or whatever he wants ? And more importantly, say and do what he wants ?

        Mere accident of birth should dictate that ? In that case, since I come from long Royal Bloodline, should I be made King of Sri Lanka because of it ?

        You forget that it was JR who started sending people as housemaids to Middle East. No one including Chandrika, Ranil or anyone else bothered to put a stop to it. Why blame MR ?

        Also, You seem to be living abroad. Because of that, seems you feel Sri Lankans are stupid (and by inference, you are very smart)

      Ben dont you think so , that this kind of actions being taken by PM are not even undrestandble to the many of this island.
      Regardless of the level of their education, many lack of common sense towards proper thinking/rational thinking. This is the reason why some raised ” NOT TO HAVE PUNISHED RAJAPAKSHE – TO THE VERY SAME MANNER SARATH FONSEKA HAD BEEN MAN HANDLED”…. people are used to accept the latter than the former. This is why many in general believe, the country like ours, even if people are literate – they are not used to think properly. Why is that just a house wife (not 8 day worker as others) of the west can think unbiasedly bringing arguments – than an University graduate of a lanken university. I happened to meet a Phsyical science graduate who was sent to the west for further studies. Not just one – but few of them. But none of them were able to see it right when treating all equally. Most of them started behaving as if they behaved at lanken uni ( stealing, attacking fellow men, even hiding library books from their fellow mates etc… not knowing perhaps western libraries have got not just one book but several of them to be borrowed). That is why I feel, this is a long process making srilankens civlized. THAT SHOULD START FROM THE KINDERGARTEN. Like in Australian KG, almost everyon shoudl be taught to be treated equal regardless of the colour, race, poverty of rich..

    All of Rajapaksa’s presidential election
    rallies were held at Temple Trees. All
    the free food was given from there. It
    is there that Basil Rajapaksa and his
    cronies had an Operations Room with
    some 150 computers to monitor elections.

    So what is wrong in using a table at
    Temple Trees by Prime Minister Wickremesinghe
    to sign an agreement?

    Transparency international has been one big
    racket from the time Weliamuna and his buddies
    have been in control. Now Shan Wijetunga is
    continuing the great tradition.

    Why is Ranil panicking so much? If he cannot stand a little election pressure how will he handle running a country?

      How dare that some people even think Ranil is dishonest if you have any doubt all you have to do is contact Arajuna Mahendran or his Son in law for verification.

        I see that I upset few Ranil supporters with my comment I’m so disappointed don’t you people support my sentiment surely hand picked RB head Arajuna Mahendran & and his kith son in law are two men with the highest integrity and honesty that you can find in Sri Lanka just ask Ranil he will vouch for them.

      Have you read the article? Ranil did not panick. He only responded to the accusation made by this so called transparency group. So sad it looks like you are a slave of former president rajapksa as well. In the future before responding to any article, please do read it thoroughly. Otherwise your comments will show your true colors .Also please do not act someone without a brain .

        I did read it, I told he is panicking when this is combined with his activities viz a viz bond and COPE reports too.

        It might be that you are a dyed in the wool worshiper of Ranil whom you think can do no wrong.
        Criticism of one does not mean the support of the other, stop labeling anyone who shows the faults of Ranil as a MR supporter !

    Our PM Is a man of integrity. Transparency International must be just playing the fool. When the public property was plundered and abused, where was Transparency International. Probably enjoying the beaches and having lavish lunches and dinners sponsored by the previous regime?

    Keep up your good work PM and the team. Teach the nation what it means to be civil.

      Yes, yes. Man of Integrity he is..

      With integrity, threaten to use Parliamentary Privilege to stop news media from talking about Bond Scam and his pal Arjuna

      With integrity, using FCID to cover up sins of the present

      With integrity, gave up the LRRP location to the LTTE

      With integrity, this man also has sold us to the West for absolutely NOTHING in return

          Well, in that case perhaps you’d care to disprove my Last Whine with a single fact disproving it ? Same goes for you, @Bert

          Or like @Saman, you believe that simply because Ranil is JR’s nephew, and “well-cultured” and “well-educated”, he is automatically a Good Administrator, Good Leader and a Decent Man ????

      TI-SL is just providing a soft ball for Ranil to hit out of the park. This just a ploy to deviate the attention from the bond scam. Ranil just few months back paid TI-SL’s Waliamuna Rs. 3.5 million for just a summary of a report.

    Prime Minister Mr. Ranil Wickramasinghe is a well cultured and well mannered gentleman.

    Unlike horrendously defeated Mahinda Rajapaksa. Mr. Ranil Wickramasinghe is not a thief or highway robber like Mahinda Rajapaksa.

    Unfortunately some people never understand the paramount inner qualities of Mr. Ranil Wickramasighe.

    The way Mr. Ranil Wickramasinghe speaks is excellent, specially in Parliament debates in both languages. He is well versed and well read.

    We always salute our Prime Minister.

      Thanks Saman. I’ll agree with you 100%. I’m not involve with SriLankan politics at all. Period. I do not know Ranil nor met him . But from what I see and what’s happening in SriLanka , the most suitable person to take the country out of the mess is Ranil. Even during the Central Bank issue, I honestly feel Ranil tried to help the county . Mahinda and his goonies destroyed Ranil’s image. He needs a good public relation campaign to sell his image. That’s what we did in prior to George.W Bushe’s elections in U.S. Plus you need a good grass root level campaign too . That’s very crucial to win heart and minds of people .Good Luck. May The Triple Gem bless you all. PS I was planning to come back and settle down. But now I’ll wait until after the general elections.

    WERE THEIR EYES BLIND WHEN CRIMINAL AND MURDERER MAHINDA RAJAPAKSE MISUSED GOVERNMENT PROPERTY AND GOVERNMENT SERVANTS FOR HIS OWN PERSONAL GAIN DURING THE LAST 10 YEARS AND EVEN DURING THE LAST PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION WHEN THE CRIMINAL MAHINDA SUFFERED THE WORST EVER DEFEAT…. WELL WELL TRANSPARENCY SRI LANKA YOU COULD GO TO TOWN FOR THE CRIMINALS, DRUG TRAFFICKERS, PROSTITUTION PROMOTERS, ALCOHOLICS …. BUT REMEMBER MAHINDA HAS ALREADY LOSSED THE ELECTION…. SRI LANKANS ARE NO FOOLS ANY LONGER….. 10 YEARS OF SUFFERING IS MORE THAN ENOUGH…… 10 YEARS OF DICTATORSHIP IS ENOUGH…… MAHINDA WILL BE DONE FOR GOOD ON THE 17TH AUGUST 2015…. CONFINED TO THE MADA MUSALA WALA!!!!!!

    Saman is simply hilarious ! Is Ranil super man ? coming from a family which made money by exploiting our labour, jumped into cabinet because he was JR’s nephew, camped out at Batalanda, made money with Mahendran, retains UNP leadership as it is dictatorship, extermly cunning, spreads falsehoods about others, only Royalists and boys in his entourage. Saman you see all that in Ranil ! Sri Lanka has no hope if people see things in this way . We need people who see all this hum-buggery .

    Being an orator does not make Ranil an honest man. Why is he defending Mahendran the biggest fraudster. Why did he lose 29 times, if he was well loved. He hasn’t done much during the six months except form the FCID , to show what a revengeful man he is. He is not a born leader. Say what you like about MR he has the dignity and he is a born statesman.

    Dear Commentators: This election is not what, who and where these politicians sign “MOUs”. Let any of them “sign, dine and shake hands”. We have seen all those (men,women of Political Parties and NGOs) for long long years in the past engaged in these RITUALS, but nothing GOOD has come out so far for us. This ELECTION is therefore FATEFUL and it is our binding duty to make our voter the KING MAKER and let not those MOUs and ALLIANCES over ride that authority.

    This man Needs to be crushed at the elections!!!!

      Lasanda @ you have a good job waiting.

      DJ was the one who had been apointed to check the overflowing toilet pits of MR in Medamulana. MR himself said that even coconut pluckers of him turn go againsst him today. Now in a time, he has nobody to clean his toilet why not you and your kith and kin make efforts to render him a service ?

          Fools are clearly shown in current circus. Those who rally round to Meeharaka Rajapakshe are the born fools being unable to see it right. Basta. Not knowing the disaster by giving power to an idiot – that will be more like as if A MONKEY TOOK THE DALIPIHIYA. Man for the sake of future generations, let this bugger MR be isolated from lanken politics.
