Ravi Plays Dirty And Claims Aloysius Is Anika’s Ex-Lover

Whilst claiming he was hurt by attempts to assassinate his character, Minister of Foreign Affairs and National Lotteries Ravi Karunanayake himself went on to drag a nonrelated relationship of one of the witnesses, lawyers monitoring the proceedings of the Commission investigating the Bond Scam told Colombo Telegraph.

Day before yesterday when Minister Karunanayake was questioned as to whether he knew that Arjun Aloysius had met his wife Mela and had discussed the leasing agreement of the Penthouse Apartment, instead of giving a clear answer he said, “No, I don’t know about that, but Arjun Aloysius is Anika Wijesuriya’s former lover”.

Subsequently when answering another question, he once again mentioned that Arjun Aloysius was the former lover of Anika Wijesuriya.

Anika Wijesuriya with her father Nahil Wijesuriya

Meanwhile speaking to journalists and media immediately after his grilling, Minister Karunanayake went on to say “I can accept the piercing of the enemy’s arrow. But, the pin pricking of friends is much more hurtful”.

“The irony is that he is the one who used the pin to prick his ‘relation’, according to him,” the lawyers who spoke to Colombo Telegraph said.

However earlier when Anika Wijesuriya was giving evidence before the Bond Commission she was asked if she knew Arjun Aloysius. She said she knew him first through her schooling at the Colombo International School and thereafter as a friend of a person she had had a relationship with. At no point did she claim that Arjun Aloysius was her former lover.

Lawyers representing Arjun Aloysius however never suggested or challenged her if she was the ex-lover of Arjun Aloysius during the time of being cross examined when she was giving evidence. Instead they went on to ask her if she knew a person by the name of Jude Shramantha Jayamaha. Even though they never went on to identify who that man is, he is the man currently serving a death sentence for the famous Royal Park Murder. Anika said she knew him, but no further questions were asked regarding that matter.

“What is baffling is that Ravi Karunanayake who cannot/did not/may not remember who paid for the penthouse, remembers that Arjun Aloysius was Anika Wijeysuriya’s lover. This leads us to believe that Ravi Karunanayake would use any path to discredit someone who crosses him.

a) Anika Wijeysuriya leased her house and signed a legal agreement.

b) Anika Wijeysuriya registered the lease agreement.

c) Anika Wijeysuriya responded to summons by the Presidential Commission.

d) Anika Wijeysuriya gave evidence according to what happened truthfully.

So, what earthly reason is there to discredit her character? YOU DECIDE” the lawyer told Colombo Telegraph.

Meanwhile a website which is paid around US$ 3000 per month to carry two advertisements of the National Lotteries Board, which comes under Minister Ravi Karunanayake’s purview, used an ad hoc writer to sling mud at Anika Wijesuriya.

Anika Wijesuriya who used two parts of her full name Muthukudaarachchige Vinodini whilst giving evidence as the former owner of the Monarch Residencies Penthouse, is the daughter of business tycoon Nahil Wijesuriya.

Her full name reads as Muthukuda Wijesuriya Arachchige D.A. Anika Vinodini Jayasuriya. After giving evidence her lawyer requested the Commissioners to give a ruling in order to protect her and her family identities. The Commissioners said that they cannot rule in that favour and denied the lawyer’s request.

She is a Director on the Board of East West Properties PLC, a company which is owned by her father.

However after giving evidence Anika Wijesuriya has deactivated all her social media accounts such as Facebook, LinkedIn etc.  (Jacqueline Senanayake)

      Penthouse Ravi,
      What is your IQ? Just curious… Why drag Anika Wijesuriya’s into this just because she sold the penthouse to your “innocent” and “politically ignorant” wife, using a bagful of money, courtesy of Mahendran by way of Alosius, as the medium of exchange, to pay for it?

      Why not fess up the truth and move on….You are naked here you have no clothes on!

        Let me tell you about the very high robbers. They are different from you and me. ——–Ask MaRa MaRa and Cronies, and now of course as Ravi and cronies (Mahendn Alosious, Ravi’s “innocent” wife.

        Clever thieves find all kinds of ways to get their hands on bank reserves, national reserves, contracts, donning outrageous disguises and crafting elaborate strategies. Throughout history, particularly brazen criminals have logged spectacular thieving efforts across the globe. Success rates vary, but crime generally does not pay, except in Sri Lanka, the Land occupied by the Paras. Public interest in robberies is directly related to the entertainment value provided by the crooks. Interesting approaches, high paydays, and outright successes are embraced by observers, who root for creative criminals that beat the system. Robin Hood effect aside, robbing banks is either easy work or hard work – just ask the would-be gangsters and robbers in Sri Lanka.

      This bugger R Karu the Cabinet Minister should step down from his position.

      He should step down until he’s cleared of all these shameful accusations.
      That’s what he should do , the Honourable thing to do.
      Unlike Jarapassa who’s still trying to hold on to his rotten tail with the hope of returning to power.

      Ravi K. as a Minister is obliged to do due diligence on where he lives and who pays his rent!
      Since be did not even bother to find out who pays his rent he certainly is unfit to be any kind of Minister. This filthy clown should be put behind bars for life and all his assets and his wifes and daughters assets taken to pay off some of the national debt.
      Ranil Wickramasinghe needs to resign for appointing a corrupt clown as Minister of Finance and Foreign Affairs.
      Ranil is a bloody insult to the people of Lanka and corrupt to the hilt and selling off all the national assests in order to bribe the Parliament of corrupt morons so they will turn a blind eye to Ranil Wickramasinghe’s corruption. Ranil and his clown Ravi are actually worse than Mahinda Jarapassa!

      Because we have two inept scarecrows as President and Primeminsiter. In another country, the leadership would have asked this crooked minsiter to resign immediately on the first exposure of sleaze, and i he did not would have fired him immediately. Ours have no guts, no style and most likely they themselves might have been somehow linked to this major scandal, or if not have taken the crooks money for some other indirect way. In the dark, tehse people share the same dinner tables attend the same weddings and quite probably use the same banks abroad to stash their ill gotten moneys. Sri Lanka is no different to Nigeria when it comes to corruption in very high places.

    Lot of CIS Girls and boys were into drugs and lots of sex. Some had abortions too. Some even from respected old Kandyan families also fell for the trap. Most were new rich Mudalali family kids put there to learn and speak fake accented English by there rural or provincial rich parents . Others were the arms dealer, drug dealer types and Colombo social climbing wannabes of low caste sinhalese like these. Also professionals who worked in Dubai etc sent kids to CIS so they can go to USA to study.

    Fluffing was what girls did to us boys at recess. Blow jobs and hand jobs were common. At night wild parties at the blue, and other places. Lots of hardcore fucking went on during my time. I was there earlier than Anika but not surprising. Lots of abortions.

    Whichever way one many look at it, Ravi’s public life is over. The faster he and his political associates realizes this, the better it will be for all concerned.

    Damn it Ravi. You cant remember or did not want to know who is paying your rent. But you can very remember Arjun is Anika’s former lover, which we really don’t know. But even if it is true. What is wrong with it. During teenage years , many girls and boys have relationships which will not end up in marriage. And having a relationship does not mean he or she is a lover. A friend can be a Boy or a Girl. What bullshit from a powerful minister. Also , he says he does not know Arjun closely , but knows Arjun’s former lover. He is truly a man in a saree. (No offence at the ladies). Now what has happened is Minister is caught red handed with pants down and tries to defame all those around. Kumbala Maalu Kewanam , Vindawapan Balalo.

    Here is a crooked minister who cannot remember anything what his wifey and daughters doing or whom they are sleeping with or anything else going on in his hosehold pretends he has an excellent recollection of what is going on in his crooked ministry and other peoples affairs. Fancy he could not remmeber that he asked Anika to burn the documentation relating to the lease and how much paid and by whom as he himself had destroyed his own papers He did remember where he had hidden it.

    In typical Sri Lankan fashion they have managed to make this serious accusation into tabloid news. Ravi the rat, probably at the advice of his sleazy lawyers is now trying to divert attention, and what better way to do it other than smearing some sex on this?
    His defence is be laughable even in a normal conversation. As a government minister he has the responsibility of verifying any benefits he enjoys, whether it comes from his own family or from outside. Therefore, regardless of the claim that the he was unaware that the place his is living was financed by someone who stand to benefit from his connection, he is culpable, for dereliction of his official responsibilities. This alone is sufficient for him to be removed from post. If not he should be fired for being a moron.
    Then there are more serious criminal charges of money laundering – how a government minister managed to come up with over US$1m to buy a luxury apartment? I hope Inland Revenue is sitting on these proceedings to note down all these money transactions. Anika should also be part of this investigation to see whether her tax files are in order in the light of massive payment received, as well as Ravi’s wife and daughter, who appears to financial geniuses, running a success business to have spare cash in a safe to buy an occasional million-dollar apartment, while still spending, no doubt, a small fortune on repairing their residence.
    My prediction however is bleak – Ravi will survive, not a cent will be recovered from Mahendran or Aloysius, president and prime minister will just keep their mouths shut as they know in Sri Lanka all these are just transitionary inconveniences that will be taken care of by the time itself. No action is really needed.

    What else but gutter journalism for using a pretty face to pave way to get Ravi out. Shame on the person (Jacqueline /Uvindu?) for published the photo of the relevant person when she had wanted anonymity. We are not that daft not to see the deal between Ranil and Ravi.If you really do have any concerns/ guts write on actual real dirty stuff that happened on the bond deal, focus on Ranil , Mahendran and why Ranil got president Maitrie to dissolve the parliament just before the cope reviews (earlier COPE) were due to be presented in the parliament (link removed from earlier post). Seriously this plot should do well for a film script. Meanwhile send the ‘Ravi related’ stuff you got to ‘The Banker’ and tell us of their reaction okidoki?

    So Anika leased her pad to her old lover. It seems all legal & proper, so what’s the problem? However, you should be more worried if Aloysius was screwing your wife if he was so kind to pay for the lease of the flat. Is that why you didn’t ask her?

    Maybe you have not heard of the saying that there is no such thing as a free lunch (of course its different with friends but didn’t you say you hardly knew Aloysius?). You should check that out because if Aloysius was screwing your wife & in return, let her stay in the flat paid for by him, you could be implicated for living off ‘immoral earnings’ of your wife which isn’t good for a Minister holding the post of Foreign Affairs. This just a tip since you seem to be so naive about these things.

    To those who have made comments above…… Why were you all Silent at the time of the HEDGING DEAL…… Why were you Silent when Ajith Nivard Carbraal, along with Mahinda Rajapakse who was the Finance Minster was involved in worst Bond Scams and other nefarious activities at the Central Bank and where Mr. Arjun Aloysius commenced his Money Making tactics with the assistance given by Mahinda Rajapakse’s Sons Namal, Yoshitha and Rohita…… who even gifted Mr. Arjun Aloysius imported PUPPY DOGS….

    Namal Rajapakse and Yoshitha Rajapakse alongwith Malaka Silva, Lohan Ratwatte, Ramith Rambuwella and others in the company of Mr. Arjun Aloysius were upto all the Villany in and around Colombo, and this was sponsored by Mr. Arjun Aloysius who spent freely with the ill-gotten gains right through the years that Mahinda Rajapakse was President and with the benefits gained with the assistance of Ajith Nivard Cabraal.

    The activities prior to the Bond issue of 2015 should also be investigated prior to concluding the Ravi Karunanayake benefitted.

    All of you out there who support such Villany, who support Criminals and Robbery… who support 50 Rogues…… who themselves benefitted from Arjun Aloysius and robbed many many others …. who call themselves a Joint Opposition (who are ignorant of the meaning of Joint as the TNA and JVP dont support them) … make these uncalled for Comments in respect of Ravi Karunanayake……WHY WERE YOU ALL SILENT DURING THE PAST REGIME ….. AS YOU FEARED YOUR LIVES AS THE WHITE VAN WOULD HAVE VISITED YOU.

    This is Yahapalana and that is why there is a Commission appointed….. this was not heard of in the past as everything was swept under the Carpet…..

    Why was there no investigation against Mahindananda Aluthgamage… when even his Wife indicated of his Robbing and ill-gotten acquiring of wealth??????
