      Do you want to offer for the costs, by using the stolen billions. Ask your boss Medaulana Mahinda Rajapaksa.

      He has so much money, he does not know what to do.

      He is shopping for a post of Prime Minister.

        MARA is so desperate that he’s running from Temple
        to temple, visiting his partners accused of frauds
        and corruption and seeking intervention of “uda inna

        led by his goon “deyyo” Galaboda.

      At last the SOB is where he should be.Next he should hopefully be in Welikade Jail.Sajin De Vass Gonaa still has a secret office at 29 Grenier Road ,off Cotta Road Borella.this is the lane just after the Keels Super Market as one comes down Cotta Road from Borella junction.He owns this 4 story building in which many of his Balapitiya thugs work.He owns another massive building at 8 Dudley Senanayake Mawatha( former Castle Street) Colombo 8 next to MINI showroom as one comes from Horton Place Kynsey Road traffic lights.All these are the robbed wealth of the Sri Lankan people

      Since Sajin de Vass Gunawardena is held in remand prison/hospital is there any chance of Chris Nonis filing a case against him for grievous bodily harm (GBH)or reciprocating Sajin’s courtesy?

        Im not sure why they went with the accusations of 20 cars instead of the 7 helicopters and a passenger plane he owns + aviation school and many other properties and businesses.

        Not bad for a wharf clerk who got a minimum from Trico International in Dubai upto 2005 elections.

        Just imagine how much his boss and corrupt family have amazed during this time?

    He is someone who showed the world what can happen when a person of no class is given power. A minister handling foreign missions attacking one of his own ambassadors in a diplomatic banquet to honour the visiting president. What an idiot.

    These petty thieves have to be dealt with at the end. This government and judiciary have no priority. Wasting time with small time robbers. First put MR family behind bars. Is it time wasting or cheating voters. I think there must be a genuine civil society to advise the government about priority. Still ordinary village voters think their God MR worship the land on arrival at Katunayaka is real.

    The charge is only misuse of some vehicles.

    How about the illgotten wealth;Real estate,Resort at Passikudah etc etc etc etc;
    This man was only a Wharf clerk a couple of years ago. Within 10 years of MaRa rule this upstart has robbed enough to last him 10 generations.

    G.L.P must be sipping a CHAMPAGNE. Cheers!

    They will have to amend the law to
    empower Magistrates to send those
    produced before them to different
    hospital. Some can be sent to rural
    hospitals like Mervyn Silva etc
    Murder Gota can be sent to the
    cancer hospital in Maharagama.
    Wimal Weerawansa to the Dental
    Institute in Colombo to have his
    mouth examined. Mahinda can go
    to the Victoria Home for the Aged.
    Namal sure will find a place in a
    boys home where there are ayahs to
    look after all his needs.

    Continue doing the clean up of these crooks and thugs. It is all coming to light. The Rajapakses thought that they will be in power for ever and these bootlickers went to town. They should never be let out and allowed to rot in jail. The next round of arrests should focus on the immediate relatives who also robbed the people. Please check for houses and jewellery purchased, overseas travel and credit card purchases which will provide evidence of the corruption that took place.

Absolutely nothing will happen he will be acquitted, in the mean time will be in the paying wards with security sipping Chivas.This man was under MR’s nose eating in to state coffers. This is all total BS and this Yahapalanaya is not for an illiterate third world country like ours.We are selling everything including the religion and values in greed.Our nation is destined to suffer and toil.

    We need a tyrant, like in the Gulf states, and this plastic yahapalanaya is allowing thieves, scoundrels and the lawyers to make more money.. and that too will be paid by the masses.The poor will still be poor.

    The good thing about Mahinda Rajapaksa is not only he made money, he allowed his acolytes too to amass wealth like in this case. That is very kind of him. And that explains why over 50 corrupt MPs attended the rallies held at various towns in support of Mahinda Rajapaksa.

    Dear all,

    We often see information on suspected cases of corruption, abuse of power and worse that has happened in the Northern Province. The latest cases that I remember have to do with Jaffna University and the water in Chunnakam. In other parts of the country these kind of cases are investigated and even old cases are reopened now that Mahinda is gone.

    Why has nothing been done in Jaffna? Is it because nobody has made official complaints now that Mahinda and Douglas are gone? Or is it because the authorities don’t do anything despite complaints and the local media doesn’t report the cases due to political pressure? Both are controlled by the same people as before because not very much has changed in the North after MS took over.

    Something is wrong when accusations are published on CT and nothing happens.

    It is maybe wrong to take this up here but I didn’t find a better place.

      Northern Lady Justice,

      I am sure you understand that it is just north alone that has trouble. The entire country is having trouble. To undo the damage that has been done for the past 10 years or so is not easy. Then again, is it not people from different factions in the north who have aided and abetted the corrupt people who were in power? The Douglas you mentioned, KP and others who are running around between north and the rest of the island who for their selfish gains worked hand in hand with these bandits to bring this country to this state? And in just 4 months of regime change you want to see miracles?

    Someone asked me if I noticed how happy Mara’s cronies seem when they are being taken to jail.

    I said why shouldn’t they be, they are going home, just like worms crawling into shit.

    More of this type of shameless scum should be duly sent to where they belong, not only to help the civilised people but to be kind and humane to such beasts by putting them amongst their own kind.

    I’m sure if we were to hang them they would even be happier, for sure they will be going to hell which is where they all belong.

    Surely, there must be more serious allegations against him. How did he manage to amass millions in a short period of time? Hopefully this is the start.

    He was an arrogant thug who didn’t hesitate to use his fists to settle an argument. He will, I am sure, find the prison company quite familiar.

    UNP FCID must be the coolest and the bestest in the world, even better than the Terrorist Finance Detective Forces in Diaspora lands.

    Sajin Vass should have used Nano cabs while visiting his business premises.

    Or at least should have picked the best in the pool like one of those Black Beamers with 8 cylinders.

    Then the charge sheet wouldn’t be that long and it would saved a lot of trees as well.

    But then how can Welimuna and his mates make a quick buck if the charge sheets are that simple.

    This man did not have money even to pay a Nano Cab in early 2000.

    The long list of people who were deceived and defrauded by this person (before joining MR) included young Professionals, foreign & local investors etc. His father was one time BOI Chairman and he used all his fathers’ influence to continue this errant lifestyle

    This con artist then wasted all the ill gotten wealth on a luxurious life style and didn’t have money even to pay his rent before he became the coordinating secretary of MR. This is the real truth.

    While this is a step in the right direction, cannot understand the simple charge – misuse of vehicles in the Presidential Secretariat – when there are much more serious offences against this person.

    A simple check of this mans assets in 2004 and 2014 and how he earned the assets from an MPs income should provide adequate grounds for more serious charges.

    This is a charge that Sajin should be able to defend in courts, if the former President’s lawyers state that these vehicles were used with the concurrence of the former President.

    The question arises – Is this really an attempt to arrest and imprison Sajin or else is this a mere media circus to appease the general public prior to a general election to give the impression that crooks are arrested and punished?

    The same logic applies to most other politicians arrested recently – people such as Jonston Fdo, Basil etc.

    someone is taking us for a ride.First of all all assets in his name and his families here and abroad should have been published and he asked to account for those with his income.When he can’t do so he should have been arrested and charged.This entree charge also could have been added to the main dish.Some sort of deal has taken place just to keep us happy.

    must be thinking we are morons.
