Rizana And Shirani: Adoption Of “Presumption Of Guilt”

By Kamal Nissanka

Kamal Nissanka

Two events occurred during the second week of January 2013 shocked the Sri Lankan as well as the international community. Both events were related two Sri Lankan daughters. One was an under educated minor, from a poor, rural background of Muttur, Trincomalee who was sent to do domestic service in Saudi Arabia and other hailed from Kurunegala , educated  at Anuradhapura, Colombo and London was the 4th citizen of Sri Lanka ,destined to become  the first woman chief justice of  the island. Both were fallen victims of ‘unfair trials’ based on the legal principle of “presumption of guilt”

Ms.Rizana Nafeek of Sri Lanka who was born on 4th of February, 1988(Sri Lanka’s Independence Day) was an underage girl at the departure to Saudi Arabia. She was sent to Saudi Arabia to work as a house maid on a forged passport that had included a wrong birthday by Sri Lankan government authorities.

The state of Saudi Arabia is not a democracy, governed by sharia law and decrees of the king.

According to Wikipedia

In Saudi Arabia, a judge is empowered to disregard previous judgments (even of his own) and will apply his personal interpretations of ‘sharia’ to any a particular case. Traditional tribal law remains significant. In this country judge and lawyer are part of “ulema”, the country’s religious leadership. Those arrested are often not informed of the crime of what they are accused of or given access to a lawyer and are subject to   ill-treatment and torture if they do not confess. At trial there is a presumption of guilt and accuse did often unable examine witnesses and evidence or present a legal defense. Most trials are held in secret”.

“Death sentence in Saudi Arabia imposed for various crimes by way of beheading, stoning, and shooting, even by crucification.   Only three countries in the world including Saudi Arabia impose death sentence to children”

At the age of 17 Rizana had to look after a three year old baby and feed him. It is alleged that the death of the infant had occurred as a result of chocking while feeding milk from a bottle. She had been taken to police and had been asked to make a statement under duress and there was no Tamil translator to make things clear at the police.  The statement was a forced confession.  She was physically assaulted to sign it. There was no post mortem for the body of the child who died and no evidence regarding a medical report has emerged. Her birth certificate clearly shows that she was a minor, but there was no lawyer to assist her at various stages. Finally she was convicted and held for years in the death row, Sri Lanka and number of International agencies wanted to get her released on the ground of minority but all the attempts were in vain and to our dismay Rizana Nafeek was beheaded publicly  on the 9th of January 2013 in Saudi Arabia the birth place of Islam, reminding us the beheading of Madduma Bandara, the child hero nearly two centuries ago for a wrong committed by his father, Ehelepola  Maha Adikarama, in the city of sacred tooth relic.

The gruesome killing of Rizana raises lots of issues. Many countries, human rights organizations and international organizations   vehemently condemned the inhuman punishment.

During the same week on Friday the 11th  depending on the  Parliamentary Select Committee report that has been quashed by the Court of Appeal  by way  of a writ of certiorari on the basis of an earlier constitutional interpretation of the Supreme Court regarding non application of ”Standing Orders’ to impeach a superior court judge. The government parliamentary group passed the said illegal impeachment making noises on a self imposed concept of “parliamentary supremacy” which is alien to our existing constitution.

As in the case of Rizana, considerable  pressure  was mounted  by Bar Association of Sri Lanka, Judges Association, International Bar Association, Commonwealth Bar Association, International Commission of Jurists  , diplomatic missions, opposition political parties, social organizations and individuals on the Sri Lanka government to withdraw the  flawed impeachment of  Dr.Shirani Bandaranaike , Sri  Lanka government  adopted its own “sharia law” to get rid the chief justice, while the apex court had declared it null and void.

As in the case of Rizana, Dr.Shirani  Bandaranayake  also faced a trial indoor( in camera). She was insulted by the “judges” , threatened by  supporters of those judges on her way to Diyawanna court house  and back, finally encircled her official residence , uttered abusive words ,prepared “milk rice” ,a symbol of triumphalism in the mindset of Sinhalese. As  in the case of sharia law , she was not informed who the witnesses were, not allowed  to cross examine , no time was given to go through the 1000 odd papers, no opportunity  was given to  forward a  legal defense . Dr Bandaranayake  was found guilty by a “court” which has no jurisdiction to try her as declared by the Court of Appeal and Supreme Court of Sri Lanka. The court at least did not allow the 117 prosecutors or complainants to prosecute the case against Dr.Bandaranayake. There was no “proved misbehavior” as shown in the constitution but “judges” adopted the  uncivilized, uncultured , barbaric sharia law , “principle of presumption of guilt” demanding Dr. Bandaranayake to disprove the presumption. Now she is destined to be publicly beheaded by way of removal from office. Both Rizana and Shirani were victims of flawed systems.

    At least Rizana can get some consolation in the heaven those sharia court judges who gave the verdict are clean in their private lifes than the so called judges at the Diyawannawa with 9th grade dropout, a bigamist, convicted dentist, kassippu lawyer etc are worsst in comparing these 2 set of judges.

    Shirani was humilated enough by cooked up stories by the very government that was to appoint her 2 years ago and not only herself, her husband was also setup in a trap which will send him to Welikada soon.

    As we witnessed, there was enough IRC types who was shouting from the vicinity of her house organised by the govt and PSC chairman was to address these goons.

    Rizana got a better treatment from the King of Saudi not intefering directly in the case than what Dr. Shirani got from the king of Medamulana who did orchester every bit of this saga with the help of his uneducated and corrup bunch of brothers.

      Idiot! If what befell Rizana happened to your own sister/daughter, you would not dare say that she got a better treatment just because the King did not interfere in her case. Next time you decide to put pen to paper, examine your head first. Your name MEEHARAKA suits you, by the way…….

    The judges in Sri Lanka were a man who ran naked in the Health Ministry when he was caught by his wife with a prostitute,a well known Adam from Badulla who spares no poor woman,dentist convicted of selling out dated drugs to the air force and also had a judgement against his wife who tried to be the Director of the National Hospital.This fellow is a pole Vaulter who also had 7.5 million in the bankrut Golden Key company.the Bribery and Tax people are blind as they have not asked him how he earned all that money.Anyway thats one of the many rogues who only had a push bicycle now in BMW’s daughters getting married at the Hilton and so on.The others were the Petrol and hedging racketeer and the Kassippu lawyer from Kuliyapitiya
    Last but not the least school drop out GONWANSA as he is called who tried to sack Banki Moon who has only 8th standard education with a BIG GAB who backed the Rajathuma to distort truth.THIS IS WORSE THAN THE SHARIA LAW.

      Peter… I was not sure of that Siri-Parlour was banging a Prosi when his wife came into the room and crashed and was to assume its a employee of the Health dept or another job applicant who was to get a naked interview from the then not so Healthy – Minister of health.

      This guy is called archimedes of modern Sri Lanka :)

      At least Rizana had a quick death with a sword in a dubious verdict and Shirani got the worst kind of dubious verdict with personal suffering not only her, including her husband and peers in the Sri Lankan judiciary and millions of Sri Lankans have lost the faith of rule of law.

    Nissanka,
    By comparing Rizna’s beheading to sacking of SriraniB you have taken an ego trip to console yourself for the failure of both beneficiaries and benefactors of dirty NGOs to get the judicial coup implemented. Write what you like but the game is over and Shirani B is in for a dive into a chasm.

    Chopping Rizana’s head by Mulim Zealot is nothing but a case for interpretation of Shariah law. Koran is the word of Allah and Shariah is his law. Muslims say; no one can be allowed to oppose Allah. Rizana being a Muslim she cannot oppose a Moulavi ruling anyway. That is what a Sri Lankan Moulavi said in our TV approving the sentence. So what rubbish are you talking? If you want inquire whether she is in hell or in heaven that’s a different story.

    As for the judgement by Court of Appeal that quashed PSC report etc and etc on CJ’s application, we hear it is the fasted ‘Writ of Certiorari’ ever issued in the history of the entire world. What do you say, eh. They say, hearing by three judges started at 1.30 pm and finished at 3.30 pm and delivered the judgement at 4.30 pm on the same day. Faster than PSC ruling eh?

    Besides, you being a lawyer tell us whether ‘Writ of Certiorari’ ever issued on British Parliament in the history of the UK. Never.

    Why accuse others? did you lot not have “triumphalism in the mindset” when black-coats smashed coconuts in front of SC and marched in processing shouting ‘bangawewa’ and etc. Why have just one sided talks. You have asked for ‘kiribath’, etc and you got it. That’s the way I see it.

    Don’t talk ‘no time’ and procedure nonsense for even old Appuhamys in villages have come to know the truth about ex CJ, now for enough discussions has been going on in the TV day after day. I hear, some with good memory can even read the articles 4(C), 107(3), SO 78(A) and etc in verbatim by heart. They also know that CJ had sidelined a three judge bench that heard the ‘Ceylinco’ case for three years and appointed another bench with ShiraniB herself as the head to hear it because it is the company that she bought her property and from whom she got Rs 16 lacks discount. And she had 20 bank accounts but avoid declaring them by cheat. are told those thousand documents are bank statements, her deeds and such copies she already posses.

    All of it is out in the form of a book and in the open now. So deny them if you can. Sue those banks if they are false. I bet you can’t.

      Leela,

      if you are honest to you (first try to be honest to yourself and then towards the others please) please prove all the followings properly before dropping your 2 cent worth arguments in terms of most unfair incidents that the ruling uneducated regime has carried out by last week.

      a)You said several dozens of times that you were then sent to the UK for your education – so you should better be clear about the times given to study the case related documents – it was not even 24 hours for about 1000 paged document.
      Where on this earth that any AVERAGE ones would be able to read and get ready for that ? Please provide the references – as requested from you almost several times in the past too. Your arguments sound to be very low level – if you are western educated person, you should better be aware of all these – not falling to the levels of shanty dwellers and hired people by the uneducated regime in the celebrations of whatever the unconstitutional successes not going through the prevailing paragraphs.

      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XgGYYEEufi0

      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AD97eCIeMCE

      Most ridiculous thing is – that the president himself now keep saying that it was CONSTITUIONAL while the lawyers collective assuring that the process is UNCONSITUTIONAL

      b)There are facts about the Rizana^s case – that Saudi authorities have given Lanken govt a period of time to prove the innocence of the YOUR GIRL. It is clear to everyone that her age was 17 at the time the incident she faced for her fate. As many made it clear – there is a conviction that the under aged cant be punished to the same manner even if she accidently caused for the death of the infant. Alone that argument was very evident if the LOCAL authorities could wholeheartedly work on this grave case.

      On the very day she was executed -shortly after the beheading, the local minister who is responsible has made his statements that about the release of Rizana (maha buruwek wenna ona oya DILAN kiyana minister).

      c)Please be aware though the masses of the poorest nation are easily manipulative – but you would not stay lying all along to the same folk.
      In a time even Rajiva from the cabinet is becoming clearer about the injustice made with the process of the impeachment – you and your ilk further trying to stay bound to the ruthless, megalomaniac unpredictable ones are not comprehensible at all.

      It is further stated by the UNHCR that she was not afforded a
      Translator and she signed documents that were not in her language??

      This beheading is in the following video clip, even with the solemn
      Prayers that go with it…..

    Minister in charge of Foreign employment, who is totally responsible for this episode of Rizana Nafiq. What has the President of the country , Minister in charge of Foreign employment, Department Head of the Ministry, and all Ministers and Members of the parliament done to save this innocent worker (housemaid). Shame on all these boasters. Because they could not save this youth, who has been earning dollars for our country. Correctly speaking the minister in charge should resign from this post.

      As Ranjan revealead it they took over 7 years to black list the agency that Rizanna was sent to Saudi. How many of other poor maids have been sent by them and with what they have ended up on the brutal state- Saudi or any other middle east countries .. who have paid the close concerns about all these sofar – should be questioned at aleast after her death.

      The regime is boasting about the foreign exchange that all these poor people caused to bring to the country- but for their sake, not much is being done. How many of the poor maids and lanken men are living on saudi or other camps there not being able to do the job for which they were sent – not getting proper salaries for work done. for some reasons, some have lost their jobs but cant get back home not having enough funds.. and and..

      He is just a minister of the same low grade as the bunch of Rajapaskses.

      On the very same hour the poor girl was beheaded – particular minister was making the progress of the release of Rizana…. can ANYONE imagine about the capabilities of this kind of ministers ?

      More of the parliamentarians are like Dilan. The few that are educated eccept GLP is slowly realizing the grave situation if they would further be supportive to the bunch.

    That moulavi is an idiot and bloody fool. Sharia was not given by Allah. It was copied from Mesopotamian inscriptions that spoke of laws for eye for eye and offenders forgiven by victims relatives. Regrettably, no major political parties raised their voices for this barbaric act because victim is a Muslim poor girl. Part of the Sharia was created by Prophet and his friends. Since they married 15 women, they introduced stoning for adultery. Despite this, Prophets 4th wife Ayesha was reportedly slept with another person. When this matter was reported to Prophet, he wanted 4 witnesses and it became a precedent . As a result, rapists in Sharia countries do not get punishment Islam is the only religion that imposes punishments. We must not send females to KSA. Sri Lankan Muslim women should not be allowed to wear kijab, a dress of Arabs. Halal certificates food should be stopped. Muslims should not be allowed to build so many mosques.If a British girl was killed in this manner, Kahbathul Shareef would have been destroyed. If a Sinhalese met her death in this manner, many mosques would have been burnt Stitch in time, saves nine.

      The saddest thing is majority of the victims are Muslim women and girls not only from Sri Lanka, but also from Indonesia, Bangladesh and Philippines. As for Sri Lanka why can’t the government exploit the natural resources that are available to promote a booming economy rather than going for kasippu business and avoiding taxes. By the way are the Muslim Ministers or even the Government Parliamentarians aware of the Declaration of ILO on the Migrant Workers’ Rights.

      Amaradasa, this is the order of the day. Let us watch what the outcome of the Judges who had given a verdict that the whole episode in relation to the impeachment of the CH was unconstitutional and illegal. They should show it in action at the ceremonial sitting or when sitting together with the new CJ, when they refuse to sit with Justice Shiranee Thilagawardena. How are these judges demonstrate the presumption of guilt when the new CJ assumes office at a time when the new CJ was called a liar before the UN Committee and also had conflict of interests.

    If madam CJ Shirani Bandaranayake Gives up her post, It will be a slap on Democracy, Justice,Independence and Freedom on all of us Sri Lankans.

    Mahinda Pak.ya think we Sri Lankan’s Don’t have Balls….and only he and his Fuck….g family have. He is just a Coward trying to intimidate others with his Hambanthota Wal Ballas, Nariyas and Buffalo Soljars. All the Best Forces Personnel left service with Gen.Sarath Fonseka. Now only left with a set of Buffalo Goons.

    Therefore it’s time to face to face fightect with the Medamulana Sevalaya and the Parliament hora thakkidias. Never ever give into this keri Hamba Hora.

    We will support our Madam CJ upto the end…….and If we cannot catch this Fuck….r inside, we will catch him outside.
    Therefore it is the duty of all Citizens, Lawyers, Judges, Judiciary, Clergy and the Trade unions to PROTECT HER.

    Upto now Madam CJ has stood against Tyranny and should continue to do so.

    President already is a Spent force and International Community has made him a Pariah state . Also he is loosing ground both in Intellectual,Educated, Clergy,Opposition and Peasant communities.

    At the moment President and his Brothers follow the China Doctrine.
    After accumulatiung closer to One Billion US Dollars from the Sri Lankan society and from Illicit business deals, Rajapakse Family was looking for ways to hide this loot, and China came as a Guardian Angel and a golden opportunity.

    Kicking out CJ and guiding University Leadership (Military) training, Military training for Tamil women, military personnel teaching in Nothern schools,Military suites for school heads, white van goons, recent using Govt.marauders to intimidate CJ Bar Association lawyers and supporters who were protesting against impeachment were all are acts similar to China Tinemen Square Massacre and intimidation tactics,……and having fake meetings with huge publicity, displays of MARA Family Cutouts, posters, foundation stones Laid all over country with much Funfare are all part of the China Panda…and…China Dragon Game play to deceive public.

    There is no doubt that there is a clear genetic disorder in the Rajapakse Family….where some of the siblings looks Malay/ Muslim features. May be a DNA teast could prove it.
    Please watch the following Videos:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sTqO3jshilw
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zOz8P_iMPtI

    This is all MARA family did by importing Mercedes Benz, BMW’s and Lamborginis brought to give to His Family Members, Party Goons and Buddhist Clergy and Preletes to Lure their support for MARA Family Dynasty with our poor innocent Children and women sent to Middle East to earn Foreign Exchange for his pleasure.

    70% of people still live below POVERTY LINE AND MOST OF THEM LIVE IN HOUSES SIMILAR TO VEDDHA (NATIVE) COMMUNITY LIVE……60 YEARS AFTER INDEPENDENCE.

    Be your own Judge.

    HELP OUR CJ TO STAY IN HER POSITION FOR OUR GOOD…..AND IMPEACH MARA FOR ROBBING TSUNAMI POOR PEOPLES MONEY DONATED BY INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY.

    Thank You.

    Mr. Lawyer(Nissanka)

    I woudn’t care if this article were written by “someone”, but to see such an article written by a lawyer I felt to comment upon your following statement.

    “,…uncivilized, uncultured , barbaric sharia law,”. There is a saying in English, which goes “half knowledge is always dangerouse”, what normally a lawyer does is takes time to get to know the subject, analyses it and then come to a conclusion with reasons.

    I think you have mixed up the law and legal procedure, or clearly saying Criminal Procedure Rules, the Saudi court seems to have followed together.

    Sharia law has not defined “murder”, rather it gives a clear guidance as to the punishment to an act of taking a life, it may be 1st or 2nd degree murder.

    I don’t argue with you how saudis did behave, but I take issue with you as to a punishment for unlawfully taking a life. For an argument sake if poor Rizana would have committed the alleged crime what would have been the right punishment? imprisonment or pardoning or what else?

    In my opinion 21st century is the right time to implement capital punishment for murder, because human have reached top level of everthing. Therefore they should know right and wrong without any dobuts.

    So taking a life unlawfuly is wrong according to natural law as well as Sharia Law and punishment for that crime is taking the wrong dower’s life. If you still think that life for life is no good then come up with your reasons.

    If, however, the Saudi court has erred in fact and law then they are answerable without any doubt.

      @Ahmed Nadvi: It is so-called barbarians like you who bring disrepute to your religion. Half-education is worse than no education at all, they say. And you have amply proved this with your interpretation of the unfortunate fate that befell this innocent victim.You justify the application of sharia law on the assumed premise that this girl actually committed the crime.How then do you justify the application of sharia law if it is presumed that she was innocent of the crime? In proper law, every accused is innocent until proven guilty. The basic premise here is proof of guilt and not stupid definitions purported by you. If, as you say, sharia law does not define “murder”, how then can it give any guidance as to the punishment to an act of taking a life? By the way, before you venture to define legal terms, I would advice you to take a basic course in English grammar.You will then understand the unsavoury and cruel aspects of sharia law better and also realize that there is no such thing as “dangerouse” and “wrong dower” in the english language.

    The govt did everythig to save Risana. But sharia law is sharia law and nobody can change it. Govt even gave blood money for release but parents did not want.So what to do. At least the muslim ministers went and performed Omrah and came. I think that is a meritable action.Some good came from it and now they had shaved heads after Omrah on-the-house.

There are individuals who were born in Ceylon living in the west as diplomats appointed by the west and who is very close to the King of Saudi from the time he was a prince you moron. Anyway it’s the Zionist Jews that rule the nation so enjoy your stay licking RM till one day your offspring become a slice of Soylent Green.

      Please check it again whether the govt did 1% of from their side to prove that the young girl is under 18 and should not be punished according the pact that many countries incl SA signed and agreed. Within the given two years, has the govt proved them her innocence as could have been done.

      Has the govt tried to provide the girl with a translator and lawyer to prove that she was underage ?^

      On very hours that the girl was already beheaded, responsible minister being in the parliament talking about her release – this alone say how updated they had been about the process of the girl….

      I WISH the rulers or any powers should better behead the particular minister – Dilan the low grade uneducated bastard to feel the masses that something has been done for the sake of the innocent girl who sacrificed her life.

      And after all they have not even blacklisted the agency until very shortly, for have sent abusive passport holders to those countries.
      These agencies profit millions by exporting poor girls and women to those uneducated arab world.

    Mr. Roof Fuckhim,

    Thank you very much for pointing an”e” and a “W”. As you have concentrated on e and w you missed the vital point. I did not say a word about Rizanna’s guilt or innocence.

    I agree with you that “every accused is innocent until proven guilty”, still you don’t say whether a person should be punished for unlawfuly taking an innocent life or not. If yes what that punishment be? If not what you are proposing to mitigate the loss of the innocent life.

    defining “muder” is an objective thing which goes with human reasons of a day and age. So if something is declared as “murder” then we need something to correct that wrongful act, don’t we RF?

    By the way English is not my mother tong, however, I’m happy that I put across my view and you understood, but wrongly, and come up with E and W rather than convinsing argument. Is there anything for you to learn my English teacher?

    According to my information found on the web, Rizzana life would have been saved easily if the rulers did try to prove the failure of the birth certificate also going through all DNA analysis and the related technial assistance.

    Even if the GOSL is still today boasting about they did all what they can – the facts related to the incident are given in the following videos.

    I wonder why Dilan Perera remains as a minister of the field – even after his failed actions are evident in terms of handling the case of Rizzana. Why the minister spoke untruth to the audience in the parliament again and again – should be questionable. If this is the situation for citzen in this country today – no wonder many who are already in middle countries should be scared of their future. One cant rely on the govt at all to this date.

      I always asked myslef why the Minister of Justice failed to intervene the issue by himself. If it s all truth that have been explained by Ranjan R, all ministers sent to middle east focusing on taking due actions in terms of Rizzana´s case only wasted state funds for their shopping, President of the country should not stay silence any more. Today several donations are reported to be flowing to the poor family, but their daughter cant get back to them in this life again.
