Royal Institute: Viyathmaga Kamal Gunaratne’s Child Abuse Saga Continues

The National Police Commission confirmed in a letter dated 29th January 2019, that they had concluded the complaint made by a parent bearing entry number WCIB II 96/80 regarding the child abuse of students at Royal Institute by Retired Major General Kamal Gunaratne and that a B Report bearing number M/U B3219/18 has been filed with the Nugegoda Magistrates court pending advice from the Attorney General.

The National Police Commission in its letter also confirmed that they had warned the Officer in Charge of the Women and Children’s Unit of Mirihana Police for not conducting the investigation properly when it was initially filed by the 14 parents on the 10th of October 2018.

Despite no action being taken by the Mirihana police station then, one parent proceeded further taking his complaint to the National Police Commission. The parent filed his complaint with the National Police Commission on 19th of November 2018.

Colombo Telegraph can confirm that ASP Amith Gunaratne the brother of Retired Major General Kamal Gunaratne is attached to the Mirihana Police Station.

“This is a blatant abuse of power by both Gunaratne brothers,” one parent said when contacted by Colombo Telegraph.

Earlier 14 parents of those children who were both incarcerated for five hours on the 9th of October 2018 by the school authorities of Royal Institute, went on to file individual complaints at the Women’s / Children’s Unit of the Mirihana Police Station. The students were locked up in rooms where even the classroom fans were not switched on. Also a set of new security personnel were brought in by retired Major General Kamal Gunaratne that day and were stationed outside the classrooms instilling fear and intimidation in the students.

Meanwhile the Royal Institute which has six branches island wide drew severe flak and criticism for the manner in which students were being treated for the delay in parents paying their school fees. This is despite the school charging unreasonable interest rates as much as 15% in charges for the delay.

Further Royal Institute also acquired the services of Retired Major General Kamal Gunaratne as the School’s Group Administration Director, who used his guerrilla type warfare tactics to harass parents instead of completing the administrative duties that he was recruited to perform.

Retired Major General Kamal Gunaratne has on several occasions in the recent past expressed his empathy towards children when speaking on several public platforms.

However Gunaratne’s unlawful termination of a 12 year old Grade 7 student on the 26th of February 2019, saw the Royal Institute being hauled into the Children’s Court at Battaramulla yesterday.

The presiding Judge of the Children’s Court took up the matter in the presence of the school principal, the student and the parent.

This second session of this case’s proceedings was scheduled to be heard on the 26th of March 2019.

    These are convincing examples, showing how they would REALLY be, if they would have become senior men of so called GOTABAYA regime in making. They would for sure, be like WHITE SUPREMISCISTS growing in today’s world, but their HAPANKAM will be in the rotten hell, SRILANKA.
    These men are made to believe, that they are powerful as Israelis or
    :
    Our people would never break their long slumber even if they and their lovely ones would have been met with any kind of harrasements. I wonder why people to fall that obsequeous and indifferent regarding standing against injustices.

      What would be substantial to make people finally clear about the danger of Gotabaya GOVT in making ? I believe need of the hour is to discuss broadly what kind of future we the folks would have to face if GOTABAYA led govt would be our fate. The man illustrated in the above picture is so close to Gotabaya and the allies and will be like right hand of Gotabaya if lankens grass eaters would him to be the leader.
      There are also a whole lot of speculations that repeat about intern crisis within Rajapakshe siblings struggling not being able to agree on their final decision about Gotabaya Rajapakshe be the best candidate to win the upcoming PE. Power intoxicated Rajaakshe-Siblings would risk any challenges to take over the power by hook or crook. Latter should be the case if they should enjoy the continuing impunity against numerous court cases and allegations levelled at them on money laundering and murderous acts. Not just Rajaapkshes but also anyone close them keep visiting country’s courts these days, sometimes, the frequency of their visits are far more than they are used to go to their bath rooms.

      As we are all aware, that the Rajaakseh siblings obviously have their own family disputes not being able to grab power to them. All these men are born corrupted and abusive personalities, however, the fact that Mahinda Rajapakshe term destined the war victory against brutal tamil rebels cemented the picture for their political standing outs. Media mudalalis and Rajaakshes work diehard to maintain their image in main stream media within the country, so that the public perception on them would remain regardless of the current govt’s any good achievements in the line of external politics and various other longstanding people’s problems.

      CONT:
      :
      People are made obsequious to the degree one would notice it in North Korea. No matter roads and other development projects would boom under the current govt, the due credit per media has been a dream for them. They though outreach a significant portion of people via Social media, but even information regarding distinctive achievements in health sector is played down by MEDIA mafia run by Rajapakashe yet today in THE COUNTRY.

      No matter the seriously ill patients would die without proper information about the essentially cheap prices of heart stents, no proper information is given to the public by the media. Actually, the India sponsored EMERGENY services currently functioning in the country is very successful and introduced to the folks by the current govt. That is underestimated by GMOA and Rajapakshe supporters even if their patients take advantages of the service today.

      All in all, former President MR himself has returned to RUGBY player’s murder yesterday, further making false statement though publicly. People are fed up of the lies, but Former president had the temerity to say that the victim himself should have driven the vehicle with an unguessable speed of 175km/h in that midnight to face that fatal accident.

      The murder and how it had been planned by Rajapkshe family is public secret so as is the case with that mysterious killed reported from Saudi Embassy in Istanbul Turkey. That Saudi JOURNLIST had been brutally killed by SAUDI group of criminals under the guidance of their crown prince MBS. To everyone surprise, they the authorities and supporters of them still cover it up. So is the case with lanken former President’s murder that killed an INNOCIENT rugby player of a muslim family.

        The answer to your question is simple. This is the equation.
        R + C + G = Lawlessness.
        Religion + Crookes+ Greed = Lawlessness.
        The Solution =0
        Result. = Total Failure of a State..
        Democracy has become the Mockery in Aapeh Aaanduwe .

    What else can you expect in the ‘Miracle of Asia’ Land. It is controlled by the rajapaksa clan or their advisors like perieses or gunaratne clan. The parents of the Royal Institute children should withdraw them from that school and enroll them in the state schools. Why should they spend their “hard earned” rupees in financing an unscrupulous owners of the institution. But then it is Lanka and the people just make noise and take no action of any importance. I think CT is wasting its pages and resources in digging into this mess.

    These people are suffering from Delusions of grandeur, also called grandiose delusions, often accompany other mental healthsymptoms, including other delusions. Claiming a war victory is one thing, but it was against any other folks but SRILANKEN rebels. That should not be the case any former men in the forces to become swollen as feeling they should be held above in the society. Respect should be given to some extent but it to be let them to use as the licence in abusing its own people ? The kind of thinking may be related to mental or physical health conditions, including schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, or some types of dementia.

    Types
    Delusions of grandeur come in many forms. Many people experience delusions of a similar theme over time.Delusions of grandeur can manifest in virtually limitless ways. Some of the most common types include:

    • an inflated belief in one’s own importance, such as having the power to end war
    • a belief that one is famous or occupies a high position in society
    • a belief that one is a religious leader
    • a belief in one’s ability to live forever
    • a false belief that one cannot be harmed by disease or injury
    • an inflated sense of intelligence
    • a belief that one possesses magical skills to the job above the other, such as the ability to read minds
    In lanken context, the cultural factor have affected on the content of former army men’s delusions. This is because culture affects a their knowledge and belief and what they believe about the world. Something that is considered a delusion in one culture might not be in another.

      Chamapwithi,
      .
      I moved out of the country to Europe 3 decades ago. I was then a young man in my early 20ties. My purpose was to proceed my studies from where I was forced to stop at Pera. In restrospect, I feel, today that I was not matured as any other average boys in today’s SL, even if I had the previledge to fly to neigbouring south eastern countries at my age of 16 on. So the people’s systems in such countries had been seen and known to my eyes. But they had BEEN far from european societies. .

      Anyways, what I want to make you clear HERE is – German police or any other police in this part of the world would not be backward a minute to take the prompt and proper action if anything would be seen as MORE THAN DANGEROUS for its own peoples:
      On the very first day of my arrivals,.to my surprise following incident I still keep in my mind. How the city guards/controllers, within minutes ( police) cleared the manner a small rabbit at a road side, found sick with possibly a contagious virus infection. They turned up their and hurriedly took away the poor rabbit .for euthanasia . TO me as one just arrived in, this incident was shocking, but later, I was informed, it should have been the way to protect the people not being infected by deadly virus infections.
      Likewise, I do believe, THIS KAMAL Gunaratne or the like men should be REMOVED from human association for ever. Then only we can EVER keep hopes for a dignified future for our youth in this beautiful island (people are NOT as kind as cracked up to be)

        I wonder why did you all wait until our Military eliminated LTTE from Sri Lanka and brought peace and liberty to say this?
        Abuse and incarceration are big words.
        Having to be in one place for 5 hours or being in a classroom without fans is not incarceration or abuse.
        How many children in Sri Lanka spend entire 8 hours for 18 years in classrooms where there are no fans?
        During LTTE terror era, parents spent entire day outside school premises from morning until late afternoon under the scorching hot sun for the protection of children.

          Terror elemination came intobeing through collective efforts made by various groups but not forgetting the diehard workd mastered by 3 forces. There, we salute the forces forever. But they the ones who became heroes should not abuse their reputation as the licence being given to them for the permanent abuse of this nation.
          :
          Besides, as if a surgeon appointed should have to deliver his duties, soldiers too should their duties. That is it. This 30-year long war, ended up thanks to all; but today, we see, so called ” war victory ” being instrumental for any wrong doing. As if Kamal Gunaratna was the Army commander of the country. I cant even listen to this guy and his rhetorics being put them above the altar. If they abuse their powers in schools, the kind of men should be removed from such adminsitration in order students to leave proper schooling. Let s wait and see how the investigations would end up regarding above powera abuses.

    The term ‘child abuse’ usually carries the usual meaning. CT knows that they have misled us here.

    English is, and was, the preferred language of the Lankan Elites. Sirima riding the “Sinhala Only” horse sent her children to study in UK.
    .
    Now the thinking is English education for the wealthy through the ilk of ‘Royal Institute’. Some not-so-wealthy parents with aspirations find that the fee increases are not affordable. Rtd Maj. Gen. Kamal Gunaratne was hired and briefed is to weed them out.
    .
    Will Mangala see the hypocrisy? No no no.
    His recent budget has a fund to send the English-educated to Harvard, MIT, Oxbridge.

    Oh Boy….

    This NPC must be a Serious Unit of this Yahapalnaya..
    A few Royal Institute Kiddies being put in a room without a Fan, is a serious violation of Human Rights.
    And the NPC has warned the Mirihana Police for not taking action against the perpetrators..

    What about our Dalit Kids who spend 5 hours in class rooms even without Green Fans ,because there are no windows.

    I have personal experience of one such school where 0ver 2000 girls attend.
    And only a Tuk Tuk Ride away from Wellala Gardens.
    I felt so guilty when I saw the Girls in more like a shed than a class room, I took one of the Old Girls from the PTA and bought two pedestal fan to be placed one at the front and one at the back.

    It was the class teacher who expressed more happiness than the girls.
    In fact these Girls were trying to learn Business ( New Stream) in English..

    What puzzles me most is these Parents got their Kiddies Human Rights Violated by a retired Army General, because the poor Parents didn’t have the Dosh to pay the Royal Institute Fees.
    But the same Parents have a direct line to the Yahapalana Police Commission Boss..
    How Cool…

    I don’t have a clue of even where this mighty NPC is located, let alone the names of any of these powerful Dudes..

    Failing all efforts to deal with this thug in a lawful way, then there is also another way to get him. It is a matter of organizing well and have the bastard waylaid and then have him beaten mercilessly and possibly maim him for a “trademark” of sorts, so that it will set a precedent for the rest of those MF

    The bull is still seemed to be inside the China shop and the carnage continues. It is a surprise that such private international school Royal Institute resorted to criminal action against its own students and parents. It appears that management of Royal Institute had endorsed to the atrocities committed by Viyathmaga Kamal Gunaratne. It is indeed sad to know that Royal Institute has failed miserably to handle the situation and it is a clear cut betrayal on the part of the management. If this situation continues closure of this school is imminent. This incident should be an eye-opener for the rest of the international schools and it is high time that the Department of Education should take the initiative to intervene on this never-ending issue.

    Was he also accused of murder in the Sri Lankan embassy in Brazil? CT should dig up that story as well. Was he also involved in the massacre of insurgents in Matale during the 88-89 period.
