Sajin-MR Cronies Get Plum DPL Postings From Yahapālanaya: Extradition Cases In Jeopardy

Three of the most ardent cronies of the previous Rajapaksa regime have been given Ambassador posts by President Sirisena. Kshenuka Seneviratne who was Secretary to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and instigator of the infamous incident where Chris Nonis, then High Commissioner to the UK was assaulted by Sajin Vass Gunawardena, is to be Sri Lanka’s Ambassador to the UN in New York. This position is currently been held by Dr. Rohan Perera an eminent legal scholar who had served as the Legal Adviser to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs for many years.

Kshenuka and Namal Rajapaksa

Kshenuka Seneviratne was notorious for her loyalty for the Rajapaksas, even attending to all the needs of Namal Rajapaksa during his stays in London. She undercut many of her seniors to become Secretary and authorised many of the illegal transactions at the Ministry ordered by then Monitoring Member of Parliament, Sajin Vass Gunawardena. Having harassed many officers serving at the Ministry, at least two deaths due to heart attacks and stress are attributed to her. Other officers who had served under her have had to go for psychological counselling. It is learnt that Kshenuka had attended to all the needs of Maithripala Sirisena when he undertook several official visits to Thailand last year and managed to secure her posting to New York during the coup period.

This list of nominees as Ambassadors had been approved by Maithripala Sirisena during the coup. It is ironic that they have now all obtained clearance from the High Post Committee of Parliament.

Kshenuka’s right hand man during the notorious Rajapaksa years was Majintha Jayasinghe. This individual who had failed his Efficiency Bar examinations had been promoted from Assistant Director to Additional Secretary by Sajin Vass Gunawardena. He was the Chief of Protocol during the Commonwealth’s Heads of Government Summit and involved in granting highly questionable deals to friends and cronies of Sajin Vaas Gunawardena, which included the purchase of two super luxury busses, the IT deal worth over 500 million to John Keells Group to provide security badges for the Summit and many more such lucrative deals for accommodation and transport during the Heads of State meeting. Majintha Jayasinghe is reported to have been at Temple Trees on the night of January 8 2015 and has openly campaigned for the return of the Rajapaksas. Majintha Jayasinghe has been appointed as Ambassador to UAE. Rather than giving him an ambassador post the Ministry should have investigated his dealings as Chief of Protocol and inquired how he fraudulently gained his seniority after failing exams for a record 8 times.

Majintha Jayasinghe

The Troika at the Ministry during the dark period of the Rajapaksas consisted Kshenuka, Majintha and Rodeney Perera.

Rodney who’s brother Roland is a working committee member of the UNP has managed to reinvent himself as a UNPer and even the party’s preferred choice to be the Secretary of the Ministry. He however was the right hand man of Sajin Vass Gunawardena during his rule of corruption at the Ministry before 2015. Rodney is now to be appointed as Ambassador to the US.

Udayanga

As in many cases where the Prime Minister and the UNP are caught napping the Rajapaksa camp with the help of its now ally president Rajapaksa are positioning their lackeys and cronies to the most important positions in the diplomatic service. When the shift in power takes place after an election due this year and could happen earlier than scheduled the Rajapaksa lackeys will be in the perfect positions to advance their foreign policy interests in capitals around the world, including lobbying foreign governments to drop important investigations into Rajapaksa family members and officials. Majintha Jayasinghe for instance who celebrated the October 26th coup will be in the UAE. Rajapaksa cousin and former Ambassador to Russia Udyanga Weeratunga who is a main suspect in the MiG-27 investigation and wanted for money laundering and charges of defrauding the state is currently under arrest in the UAE and his trial for extradition to Sri Lanka is pending in a UAE court. The UAE Government is seeking the court order for extradition on the explicit request of the Sri Lankan law enforcement authorities. “With Majintha Jayasinghe headed to the UAE all of this is going to be at risk” a former diplomat who did not wish to be named told Colombo Telegraph. “We can kiss any hope of cooperation to get these criminals back home goodbye,” the ex diplomat said. (By Ramani Bulathgamuwa)

      K.Pillai – Yes it is possible, but many changes are necessary. 1. The people must decide on the quality of the persons they vote for. SL is still to produce anybody of the quality as Weizmann of Israel, Ignacy Jan Paderewski of Poland, Mandela of S.Africa. and many more 2.People should elect people like kennedy and Obama who worked through very debilitating circumstances Kennedy a Catholic in a Protestan society and Obama of African descent in a society that had the KKK.

        Upali Wickremasinghe, I think the people who are eager to know whats going on are missing to see the Elephant in the room- the main problem to all of this mess……….. guess what?…………its the Govigama factor…you guys! The GOVIGAMA RULING ELITE members and their families are the ONLY MAJOR FACTOR which is blocking the path to DEMOCRACY, UNITY, DIVERSITY, PROSPERITY and the Ultimate solution to all remaining problem to this wonderful country of ours. Lately, I read a news item, where in a temple function somewhere located in the Narahenpita. There was two notable invitees attended the show. Gota and Navin Dissanayake. When Navin took the stage for his speech, he has complemented GOTA with words like “ One of our respected future candidates for the Presidency- Hon. Gota” . Also, when the turn came to GOTA he took stage to propose and sent wishes to Karu Jayasuriya for the future Presidential candidacy on UNP’s ticket. I mean, for heaven’s sake whats going on????? What is the factor that which is so common with these scumbags to conplement each other and to suggest them for the taking over the system EVEN AFTER KNOWING so well that GOTA is a criminal and the most violent corrupt figure and the only position that he is fit to serve is a LIFE IMPRISONMENT in the WELIKADA JAIL. This is the covering up of the sins of their own brethren, so that no other person taking over the system other than a GOVI CRIMINAL. The 70+ years of curse that’s which is a snake coiled in the necks of the poor tax paying population, is given further boost to strangle the nation once and for all killing everyone in one bloody decision by making GOTA the President. GOTLER will be bloody to all.. Sinhala, Tamil and the Muslims alike.

          Let s be consistent !

          Very same people have been conditioned to believe whatever being prevaricated by Rajaapkshes are the truths behind anything why ? The very same people are reported to be caught by ASTROLOGY, SORCERY tricks or any superstitious myths.
          .
          Not few days ago, former President Rajaakshes had the temerity to add that the speed of the car that firstly was believed to have driven by Thadjudeen Wasim in 2012 was over 175 km/h. Anyone with a little brain would see the kind of car driven by the dead could never be driven with the kind of speed… but this was not even subjected to heavy criticisms ? . No cross questions came up as usual since people are made to be obsequious regardless of the contents if they belong to
          Rajapakshes why ?

          Is this not SRILANKEN MAIN MEDIA coverage about any news of Rajaakshes ?
          No matter Rajaakshe sons are caught by MISTERIOUS murders, high profile money laundering acts, – they remain as angelic boys to the very same people, thanks to SRILANKEN media… why ?

          Gota is reportedly enjoying extended periods of bail, in the midst of hearings about his MIG swindle.
          This never happens in like cases involving ordinary mortals.
          This suggests that the judiciary has special treatment for people like Gota.
          Udayanga is not yet extradited.

          Do we have impartial judiciary in Sri Lanka?

            @ Justice, Absolutely yes….Judiciary is the THIEF NUMBER ONE in this whole drama. Injustice at the highest levels. In Sri Lanka we have several layers of lies that one happens go through to get to the truth which is hidden beneath. Lawyers, the law profession and the Judiciary has been hijacked by a Mafia. This criminal group is directly connected to the RULING ELITES Members of whom are mostly belonging to the law profession. The idea is that, if you know the law, its easy to break it and bend it according to their agenda. This is why GOTA is enjoying full FREEDOM even after the WORLD’s Infamous murders, and outright THEFTS. The GOVI MAFIA will never allow the system serve the people…. but, rather them. Their protection cover is —- Sinhala Buddhist Leadership….The Fascist ideology of 100 years old These scumbags are the ones who taught the world on how one should practice the STATE TERRORISM, Mass Killings of innocent people and then getting away from punishment. Even the UN system and the entire WEST is protecting them. So powerful criminals.

        upali wickramasinghe / March 30, 2019
        .
        just adding that we should have such people to vote for good leaders, cant bring us forward. We are all (at least CT readership) KNOWN to anyone with sanity, would have to feel so.We also know where the failure lies. IT IS THE MAIN STREAM MEDIA. THEY BRAINWASH OR MISLEAD GULLIBLE PEOPLE IN THIS OCUNTRY: If we know the issue has reached to cancerous levels, why not lankens stand against local MEDIA mudalalis and their abusive nature yet today ?

        And secondly, the religious forces (buddhist clergy) in this country are much more powerful than any political forces. No matter SIVURU wearers would abuse millions of dollars from CHINESE BANKS according to NEW YORK TIMES, they have the right to constantly add HEAD LINE CAPTURING news to the gullible nation. This is just an example – focusing on that Gunawansha thero and his money grabs being betrayed the nation to CHINESE.
        :
        To tell you, having studied a significant number of commenters that add their comments into YouTUBE videos , being issued daily on any political development in the country, we the ones living abroad become more than evident, lanken living within the country do REACT not focusing on the facts about anything being said and done against former hoodwinkers. 70% of lanken population live in rural areas. Politicians would not get elected without their votes, since their s play a crucial role in lanken elections. Their MAIN source of info is the TV apart from SOCIAL media. Today, when looking at rates, pvt score lot more than the local channels. The reason may be their abusive spread round the clock. I wonder why some far abusive INDIAN FILMS and TELEDRAMS are allowed to telecast by DERANA and HIRU TVs.? Most of them contain, social episodes that could easily influence lanken culture. These media institutions earn WHOLE lot from indian film/teledrama producers. Why lanken media authorties fail to set barriers to those men

When the AKUTHGAMA CLASHES TOOK PLACE, Champika Ranawaka was there in an Aluthgama meeting. He too is with the western neo-cons.

            actually MR was trying to sell country to foreigners. This included part of port city. Shangri la hotel etc.
            New govt reversed parts of those, but still had to allow leasing out of some of them (to cover debts take to build Mattala port and airport etc). Since its only a lease we still remain the owner of the land. Im no fan of RW, but let’s get facts straight. Selling assets to foreign states was done by the MR regime!

        Ranil for all his background has proved that a purported ‘class’ means nothing in politics if it is not emboldened by some backbone, guts and courage when needed.

        History will remember him for many things but not for his courage, leading from the front or fighting in the trenches.

        Instead, history will remember him eloquently, for letting down his troops each time they looked upto him for some inspiration.

        No doubt he will have a lot to answer for , when the day of reckoning arrives.

            Ranil wickramasinghe is a clever man. Cleverer than any prime minister we have had for a very long time. That is why it is so infuriating to find him fiddling while Rome burns.

            Had he the one ingredient necessary for a leader to lead this country out of darkness , today this would have been paradise. But for all he has as a clever man , he lacks the most essential feature needed to give this country the dignity and respect it deserves.

            For whatever the reason he lacks guts and that nullifies all his cleverness.

      Almost everyone knows, they FORMER president MR and men committed broad day high crimes. Misterious murder of THAT RUGBY PLAYER is one the good exammples. Entire family is provably caught by the murder. To me, that was no far from recently heard, SAUDI journalists murder that to have been premedidated in Saudi Embassy in Istanbul, Turkey.

      UPFA rank and file that were then brainwashed by feeding falsified information about the terrror elemination are appeared to be permamently blind. If one would only focus on the commenters that add their two cts worth to you tube vidios, many of them are no different to north koreans and their activities. Perhaps, poor rural folks in SL are even STUPIDIER than those koreans. I wonder why media ethics would not break the barriers and startle with indepedently held media telecasts?

      Media men should place the nation before their pocket filling tacktics. As we all know media industry is one of the lucrative industries anywhere inthe world. Whatever lies, fabricated news, misinterpretations in favour of biased politicians they put to air misleading innocient masses SHOULD BE SUBUECTED TO THE ATUHORITIES in MEDIA ETHICs. It is high time time to introduce media men a code of ethics for MEDIA. Today, it is becoming clear, that DERANA, HIRU and other TV channels telecast only in favour of culprits in RAJAPAKSHE led groups. They dont care about the POLICE OFFICER being killed by reckless drivers in midnights, but bring new coverages, braging of former rascal politicians that almsot destroyed the lanken state.

      Can we get rid of this rut?

      Yes, for a starter get rid of Mahinda and Sirisena, the two current curses. Then work on the other curses in the “esteemed” parliament elected by the grass-eaters.

      Perhaps the people should go to the Sri Maha Bodhi., write the curses in Sinhala, Tamil and English and Chinese and tie to the ranches of the tree and seek divine help from the enlightened one.

    This is only Ranil’s game. Ranil withdraw the Quo Warranto filed by 122 MPs against Old King and his Cabinet. The verdict might have ended them in criminal accusation for the Coup. That is how one more time Ranil saved War Hero’s war against Constitution.

    I understand that Sinhala Students are fed up on Wilpattu issue. Wilpattu problem is funded by the New Colonial Masters in Middle East. UNPyers getting the commission doing everything Rishard is requesting. This racial tension is another issue Ranil is knowingly pouring Oil. The University Students has been carrying all fours poster, meaning they are rejecting, Ranil Anura, Old King and New King. If something comes out this, all ministers who benefited the commission from New Colonial Masters should pay out of their pocket for the victims.

      The quo warranto is to throw them out of office (cabinet). Since they were replaced after the interim order the quo warranto case would have been of no use. A quo warranto doesnt lead to a conviction anyway!

    If we read between the lines; Kshenuka, Majintha and Rodney are the villains of now disenchanted Yahapalanists in the Foreign Service. How did these three survive all this time if there was evidence of wrong doing on their part? Is the material as scanty as all these high-profile murders? Kshenuka went in as the ambassador to UN in New York during the troubled times. Immediately after that why was not this matter raised in any of these web newspapers? My gut feeling is that somebody got mad when a plum post which he/she was eyeing went into the hands of one of the three. Remember, many a chap who served in the Sri Lankan mission in the US ultimately gets planted there one way or the other. Commonest modus operandi is to give birth to a child there. This is a country that cannot even get a Mahediran from Singapore. It is unable to get down Makandure Madush from UAE. So it is with an Udayanga Weeratunga. WHY ON EARTH CANNOT THE EXTRADITION AGREEMENT BETWEEN SRI LANKA AND UAE BE SIGNED AND RATIFIED? Do the mandarins in the foreign service say that the conclusion of the agreement is not their baby? We posted some Writing House (literal translation of Liyanage) to UAE only to tap the school funds of a Sri Lankan school set up there. Where were the protests then? Not a word of Madush or Udayanga. Foreign Service Mandarins should not think that they can fool all the people all the time.

    Thanks for looking after Namal baby during the glorious Mahinda days.
    Thanks for teaching Namal Baby learn to walk.
    Thanks for holding his hands and get him to walk.

    You have indeed sacrificed your time, career, dignity, …self respect to teach Namal baby how to walk. You deserve the job, however why is it Hopper Sirisena rewarding you with a job? Does he want you to take care of his son Daham especially potty training for him?

      Nice of you to extol the virtues of the delicious Kshenuka-ka-ka. Alas, you seem to have missed the private dancing lessons that turned the rough Namal Baby into a polished man about town. To think that Slapper Sajin accused Dr Mackwood (Our man at the court of St James) of calling the elegant Kshenuka-ka-ka a bitch. Who’d believe it?

      Anyway, the bottom line to all this is that The Great Liberator is working quietly to put in place an obsequious army ready to do his bidding when he returns in glory with his pot-bellied sycophants to once again take his pleasure of the poor souls who have inherited our 2,500 year-old civilisation.

After all, it was Ranil who had to explain Economic Principals to AG, Livera and Kodagoda. Now, even the primary investor says, Oil refinery may become a Haux. Ranil was blaming Mahinda Rajapakse for building useless Cricket stadium in Hambangthota (MAlleyrin version). Yesterday for Youth voter meeting he opened another Sports Stadium in the same no-people living area.

    This Kuneashka chic does the Jive as well.. How cool.
    These are the people we need to be our Ambassadors and Consuls .
    Otherwise they feel out place at Functions in the West.
    Even at our own HIP & Chick Expats Functions ,which are common in Melbourne, Sydney. and London.
    I have been to some of them and R & R and Jive Sessions are the main event, although the Dinner is Curry Buffet.

    Uh I nearly I forgot the main topic.
    Dr Ranil and his Hip Ministers who are Right Royalists control everything from Bond Trading to CC . PC , BOI and even Handing out Thousands of Acres of our Land to Foreigners for free .
    They even sponsor UN Resolutions with the Hip Nations like UK and US.
    And they are in and out US and UK Embassies in Colombo.
    And those Two Countries in particular don’t give Visa unless one gets a reference from one of the UNP Elite in Colombo even for a 3 weeks Holiday there.

    Dr Ranil’s mate Mangala held the Foreign Affairs for nearly 4 years.
    The current Dude Marapane didn’t know Thithawella calls the shots even at the UN to telling our Dips what to do and what not do.

    Sira can’t even nominate a Judge.
    And Sira has no say in the Foreign Ministry.
    So how come these Bad Bad people get Plum Jobs?..

    An unbiased analysis of the conduct and decisions of RW clearly shows that he cannot be trusted . Rajapakse’s biggest strength and hope is Ranil. On the other hand President is taking full advantage of his weakness and does not seem to care a straw for his position or political leadership qualities if he has any. Rest of the UNP. MPP are busy making hay while the sun shine as they know their days are numbered. We now feel it would have been better if RW walked out of Temple Trees with his Brief Case allowing the Impostor to rule the roost, but mind you he would still have been appointed the Leader of opposition which post he cherishes. As things are only alternative left for the people with love for the people and the country is to throw out the entire 225 MPP. lock stock and barrel. Then and only then we could usher in a just and a civilised society. The present total parasites and their cohorts must be eliminated.

    As an expat working in the Middle East, each time we travel back after a holiday the way we are harassed by the Foreign Employment Bureau officials about having to renew permit to work is nothing short of Ransom. As per this so called scheme, we are entitled to loans, insurance etc. However, when we approach a Bank for a loan in SL or a consulate in our respective countries we get nothing short of 3rd class citizen treatment.To be honest this serves no purpose to us. Consulate officials in GCC countries only want to be seen at events but don’t want to do their jobs. You go to them for a simple matter of getting a passport renewed or help for a fellow countryman in need all they do is tell us either go to SL and get it done as its quicker or we will let you know. You invite them for an event and they would be first to attend the session or booted and suited.

    Gone are the days when the Diplomatic service posting were only given to those with exceptional qualifications and people who have served in the diplomatic corps. Today a monkey can be trained to be an ambassador, like the one we recently witnessed in Qatar.

    No wonder, we as a nation are down in the dumps. If we are to ever rise again, we would first need to get rid of the so called political scum. Even god cannot save us Sri Lankans.

    Misleading heading. Appointments not by yahapalanaya but by SillySena. President doesn’t consult PM in making DPL appointments. This is clearly a MS-MR conspiracy to protect MR cronies.

How About PResent Diplomats, They are reporting to the whole bond Scammer and foreign exchange FRaudsters, Money Launders, those who wants to destroy Sri lankan Majority, socially, financially, culturally because they want to support even the developed countries refusing NEO- LIBERALISM.

      Maithripala is standing on his head. As usual, he has been wearing his sarong. Unfortunately, he does not know entire world is looking at his NUDITY. The poor man does not know it, since he cant see it beyond. That is what we face today. Not few months ago, but it has been long plan of lanken POLICE (CID) and other special units to go vehimently against drug trafficking. But keeping LAW AND ORDER under him these days, SIRISENA has been abusing his office but telling the very same people palatable about his hapankam. So called drug trafficking and the like speedy actions are just redherring to cover up Rajakshe crime investigations. SIRISENA does not allow INDEPENDENT commissions to react by their own. He interferes it to the very same manner he did it with the dissmissal of former FCID chief Dilrukshi Wickramasinghe… 2 years ago. Sirisena is even worst than Rajaapshes by his performance. He has tarnished the image of srilanke to all appalling levels … but he does not know it …

    CT – You are using a powerful internet tool sometimes to
    ridicule and malign people.
    There are 14 career professionals who have received their
    postings. Your (or your frustrated source) believes that they
    are all Mahinda Rajapaksa’s people.
    When Mahinda Rajapaksa is President and almighty, do you
    expect them to resign or go into retirement? Or do their job
    and ensure they survive?
    Every single government have abused our diplomats. So
    what are you trying to say.
    Don’t let CT be used as a tool to vent the frustrations of a few
    failed fornicators to vent their frustrations. This kind of thing
    will only ruin your credibility.

    The man who worked behind the scene to make all these diplomatic appointments possible during the 52 day Constitutional Coup was the current Foreign Secretary Ariyasinghe, a Gota and MR acolyte is not mentioned in the article.He paid many visits to MR before the list was prepared,probably unknown to Sirisena with Ranil sleeping.Sirisena refused to attend dinner in Bangkok by Kshenuka and he hated her but Ariyasinghe slipped her name through for the president to sign.With Sajin baggage kolla Majintha Jayasinghe’s appointment to Abu Dhabi,government can say goodbye to all the investigations into the inquiries on the hauls of cash stashed away there by the MR gang, and high profile drug trafficking cases in that country.It is well known that Sajin Vass Gunawardena is now doing underhand Buissness in Dubai.Majintha and Sajin will now together With Kshenuka ruin Sri Lanka.Ariyasinhe has got his cronies in to previously Ranil held places in Austria and Singapore.Aiyo Foreign Ministry

    Sri Lankan Politicians will never change. We need to have a new set of leaders. Those Policemen who did their jobs as per the rule must be now regretting thinking about their future since they did not join the boat?

    tHIS is outrageous. These threehave no talents. How could KShenuka replaces a veteran diplomat like Roha Perera in New York? Pleasing lusty presidents and their cronies should not be a qualification to number one stations. Everybody knows how she got secretary post by undercutting the more qualified. Now this. Other two also the same. They have no talents. Political backing is what they have. Ask the Ministry people. Nobody likes them.

    I agree with the comment made by Gamini Gunawardena.It is also noted that most of the comments are baseless with little or no knowledge of administrative procedures and other criteria. that has to be taken into consideration when Head of Missions are nominated ( specially from the members of the Sri Lanka Foreign Service).

    I am surprised to note that the comment from EA Sources to say that “They have no talents and Nobody in the Ministry likes them..Officers from the foreign service for the posts of Head of Missions are not selected through talent contest or by popular vote.Please do not forget they too have to be found suitable to hold such positions by Committee on high posts in the Parliament of Sri Lanka.

      JR don’t speak about the High Posts Committee.They also approved the appointments of Rodney Perera who pocketed a vast amount of money after having billed the Embassy in Kenya for water supplied free by its government to embassies during a drought when he was Deputy Ambassador.He was not punished because of his Minister father and thug Peter Paul Perera.Now he is been sent to USA !!

      Then the High Posts Committee also aproved idiots like Dayan Jayatillake, Udayanga Weeratunge ,Jaliya Wickramasinghe,A S P Liyanage etc.Pretty impressive record isn’t it J.R?

    Monte Cristo. Take courage, we have with us a genuine and a honest man who will not betray the country and the people unlike the three musketeers MS,RW, MR who are not only using Govt. machinery and all perks and privileges unlawfully, but also are in sheep clothing. In my candid opinion Nagananda Kodithuwakku is far above any present day politician, intellectually, in integrity and in whom all peoples can place their trust to salvage them from the pig mire they are entrenched in. We observe that no politician or their cohorts have dared to challenge him for his comments and actions but one can observe sinister moves are being hatched by some sections of the legal fraternity to discredit and fix him to prevent him from political engagements. We should not only hope and pray but should encourage him with our support to usher in an era of peace and prosperity to our Nation. The program and plan of action he has proposed is a panacea which no other politician boasting about their 40-50 years of experience has put forward.

    Man don’t worry about all these. Social Media is reporting New King burned poor people food, the Wheat Flour as Drug burning. What a waste of precious exchange!

    Now someone have to kill the next Lasantha in line for trying to find out what happened to all the tons of narcotics, reported in the media as recently captured. It has become urgent now to put on the noose few people to stop witnessing anything on the Legal Courts.
