      This the like can happen everywhere.

      So long people stay uncivlized. We cant expect people to behave civlized.

      We remember UNP fact finding missions were gone to Hambantota, thugs mobilised by Rajapakshes stood against them. Those visting young policians were attacked by physically and verbally.
      That is how Meeharaka s adminstirationcontinued.
      I think so long more of THIRISANNUs – THUGS dominated culture is there, nothing will change in lanken society.

        RE: Ravi K’s Relative Shanil Threatens Anika With Death

        What reward is Ravi K’s Relative Shanil expecting? Will his dopamine levels go up?

        Dopamine Jackpot! Sapolsky on the Science of Pleasure

        https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=axrywDP9Ii0

        Robert Sapolsky, professor of biology and neurology at Stanford University, compares dopamine levels in monkeys and humans. Sapolsky argues that in both, “Dopamine is not about pleasure, it’s about the anticipation of pleasure. It’s about the pursuit of happiness.” Unlike monkeys however, humans “keep those dopamine levels up for decades and decades waiting for the reward.”

          To My previous comment,

          I now got your statement. and did go back and read ur comment, I usually never S*** twice in the same place.

          However. From The Thousands of your erroneous comments posted here, I have to admit and concede to your VERY FIRST EVER FACTUAL comment re the Suicide Bombers IRAQ.

          You are correct. The Thousand’s Of Hours you have spent trolling the net. You have successfully proved a point with logic. I congratulate you.

          YOU are that guy sitting behind Shanil on the main picture of this story. Totally in Bliss

            “You are correct.”

            Thanks, you are brave to accept that you were wrong.
            However I am aware of many incidents, when challenged then of course I look for proof. Its not difficult.

            If I am wrong I will be the first person to apologise.

            “But Hey Dayan Is Still smiling and waiting for you to re count the dead..”

            All he has to do is just take a brief walk to Dr Gota’s residence and ask him. Gota’s has the body count at the end of his fingertips just as Basil has the details of all the financial transaction at his fingertips.

            All you have to do is please stop being clever dick.

    Disgraceful ‘good governance’. No matter who comes to power South Asia remains the same under corrupt Indian big brothers. Notably, India is the most corrupt country in Asia.

    • 8

      If the West done the right things for South Asia why South Asia is behind China? Don’t you think that the West duped South Asia? South Asia fought against the West, but follows the West. Don’t you think that the Chinese are wise, because they don’t follow their enemies? India is the most corrupt country in Asia. It created terrorism in South Asia. It doesn’t have even one university ranked within 200 in the world. It couldn’t get a gold medal during the last two Olympic Games. Clearly, the West has defeated South Asia, and it is trying to do the same to China, but the dragon is wise. It won’t fall into the Western trap.

      The South Asian intellectuals know that the West had deceived India. It’s very clear India’s policies have been unsuccessful since the independence. There is a change since PM Modi took the office, but hasn’t done enough to lift India’s role as the leader. Since the independence Sri Lankan leaders have been looking somewhere else to develop their country. India created terrorism in Sri Lanka and continue to play dirty to keeps its dominant power in South Asia. This strategy can be successful in a short term, but in the long term it will backfire on India. I believe that within few decades India will lose Sri Lanka. Only old school politicians RW, MS and Sampanthan will support India. But younger politicians won’t tolerate India’s dirty tricks. Namal Rajapaksa’s recent actions are clearly and loudly indicating the Sri Lanka’s future.

    Another text book case of entitlement. Beneath all the titles, a local thug when the chips are down. All these come with being part of the ‘family’. No wonder there is resentment against the so called middle class in the country. If there is proper rule of law, this threat will be investigated and prompt action taken. But good citizen, don’t hold your breath.

      If you are totally sick, even if blood tranfusions cant make you healthy.

      That is the best example I can leave you MAXI MORON

      This is common to JVP too.
      They promise almost everything, but they cant do the least when they are in powre

      They are now over 50 years in party politics.

      Lanken style of politics is digestable only to once who got rotten in lanken politics.
      That President knows, that is why he has been paying a blind eye to strict law and order sofar.
      If laws are there, then the media men would pain it against the rulers.
      If laws are not there, the media men just hang on with the parties, that can enrich their commercial intetnions.
      This is how lanken media has been ruining lanken way of politics.

      MEDIA MUST PLAY THE UNBIASED AND FEARLESS ROLE as is the case in the west.

      I WISH PVT MEDIA WOULD HAVE BEEN INTRODUCED A CODE OF ETHICS.

      SOONER THAN LATER:

      what they have just been adding to the air has been the NEWS to people. So people are no informed about the facts.

    Attorney General’s department

    “Shanil a known Colombo party boy and relative of Nalin Fonseka had threatened Anika with death, the Attorney General’s department informed the Bond Commission today.”

    It is your job and duty to hand over the case to the CID, to find our who is behind this threat.

    Possible suspects. Add your list as well.

    1. Ravi Penthouse
    2.Ravi Penthouse’s wife
    3. .Ravi Penthouse’s daughter
    4. Alosius
    5. Mahendran

    Add yours. Should we exclude Gotabaya Rajapaksa, Mahinda Rajapaksa, Namal Rajapaksa, Yoshita Rajapaksa, Shiranthi Rajapaksa and a host of others? They all have good track records.

      Non in the UNP or SLFP of today is in a position to be a death
      threat to anybody let alone Anika . People in well advertised
      court , bribery and PcoI cases have their enemies already
      exposed . Cases like Duminda Silva have not happened under
      Yahapalanaya . While fears still exist to a certain extent about
      individual safety from criminal threats , well known cases
      have no balls like before to carry out life threats with a guarantee
      of escape . There is a delay in justice against high profile fraud,
      corruptions and war crimes but over all , efforts to engage in
      good governance should be commended . One man had the
      courage to kill My3 brother and escape political revenge ! And
      anther brother was arrested on charges of road accident ! And
      the UNP had the balls to turn red lights on Ravi even reluctantly !
      Arjuna M was sent home bowing to enormous pressure ! These
      are good signs in as little as two years in office of a country where
      an incident like Kolonnawa dragged on and on without any justice
      in sight against the killer ! And in two years , the killer got the
      sentence ! Not a big revolution but just another election episode
      that has set in motion all these usually unexpected changes .
      Honestly , in the history of post independent Srilankan politics ,
      these are remarkable steps forward ! No one should expect
      hair raising miracles from a bunch of politicians who had been
      in the pool of stinking and disgusting politics for the last well over
      forty years .

    Surely if the Attorney General of Sri Lanka has information that a a citizen ( and a vital witness in one of the most important cases in the country) has received a death threat from an unsavoury character connected to a notorious family he knows what to do.

    This is a criminal offence and the Attorney General has all the power here.

    I thought the penthouse saga was all done & dusted now. The only outcome being RK, obviously pressured into resigning his Finance Ministerial position, which, according to him, did so honorably, & was assigned to the back benches, only to be relegated back to the major league after a couple of weeks. Life was back to normal, so why would a another spoilt brat of the International School alumni threaten the apparent whistle blower now?

    Whatever the reason, is the police investigating & taking action against a death threat? If I am not mistaken, this will not be taken seriously (could very well be a publicity seeking stunt by Akila), after all the authorities (fraud squad, Inland Revenue, etc) didn’t seem to think it was necessary to investigate any tax evasion & money laundering operations by RK & family.

    This is a well designed coup by the Bond Gang who’s names are well known by now. If needed they will assassinate, kidnap, blackmail and do anything possible under the sun to sabotage the investigations and finally recovering the loot and punishing the culprits.
    What can you expect Yahapalana Leaders when one at the top going all out to give cover to one of the the main culprits? President is dependent on him for his political survival. Part of the responsibility go to MR for dividing SLFP merely to capture power again to en thrown his family members.
    In the end is there any one to whom the ordinary man can look up to for at least ensuring the basics in life? Answer is NO. It is up to the people to chase the whole lot at elections and clean up the place.

    Since when AG started to complain about death threat to one of their witnesses to Presidential commissions? I just cannot understand how the commission will protect a witness as the same commission failed to take Arjun Alosyus to the witness stand. Also I remember Basil Rajapaksha once said “Accidents can happen even in Australia” Therefore AG should have complained to CID and and start investigation with wide media coverage. I think “witness protection program” is in effect in the Island. It is Law enforcement agencies responsibility to protect their witnesses. Also don’t forget that Victor Ivan survived during Premadasa regime as he had close contacts with foreign Embassies.
    If she has the courage to go before the commission and reveal about powerful minister why she now flee the country is the biggest question.

    How come Anika Wijesuriya fled overseas instead of lodging a complaint with the police.? She knows that the police work for “someone else”.
    This man Shanil Nethicumara is an extrovert and is gloating at the publicity he is getting. He is supposed to have been at Deakin University – as student or as toilet cleaner? He claims to have been Minister Arjuna Ranatunge’s private secretary – says a lot about both! He also claims to have been “Secretary Ministry of Science and Technology. Explains why no one takes the ministry seriously.
    Couple of days back CT had the article “Qualifications Irrelevant To Be Director General Health Services” Says Unqualified ‘Director’ SJGH”.
    Does Shanil ring a bell?

    There is another rumour is that one muslim politician ( Hakeem or rishad Bathiuddin?) is taking money to India or to middle east for some reason.

    PCoI sessions have come to an (abrupt) end as per news reports, interestingly soon after PM’s voluntary consent to appear before the PCoI. The first question he should answer is the reason to appoint a non-Sri Lankan as the Governor, breaching the Constitution and what legal action he thinks deem necessary for the PCoI to take against him.

    Poor President, he will score minus on this.

    Goes to show the caliber of the likes of Ravi and those who surround him.

    UNP will lose monumentally at every election from now on, largely because they paid scant respect towards doing the right thing.

    Even if the country was tottering, had the right thing been done, UNP would have soared, because the people were so fed up with the dark years of the Rajapakses.

    The UNP showed they didn’t have the teeth even to put away the thiefs of the previous regime.

    They just cant govern. Not with Finance Ministers such as this and a dithering leadership.

        Gonawala Sunil was Ranil’s uncle JR’s man . Many such
        men of politicos met their ends during JVP insurgency !
        So you can next time consider giving JVP a hand ! It is
        also wise to remember that JF Kennedy too was well
        known to have a bunch of underworld Dons behind him .
        We continue to hear from world leaders’ mouths more
        and more threats of thuggish talks and it is the leaders
        of countries who use the power to unleash army and
        police against people , demonstrating their ability to fight
        on the street if necessary ! Doesn’t it show another side of
        them which we fail to notice during their sweet talks before
        taking the “chair?” The dictionary of politics describes the
        situation differently but in common man’s eyes , it is
        thugery ! To settle behind the scene troubles , prof thugs are
        hired by almost all politicians of all hues in our country since
        time immemorial .
