Sandya Ekneligoda Wants MS, RW, UN And DPL Community To Save Her

Sandya Ekneligoda has reached out to President Maithripala Sirisena, Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe, the United Nations and the Diplomatic Community, urging them to safeguard her from being killed.

Sandya EkneligodaAddressing a news conference in Colombo, Sandy Ekneligoda, the wife of missing person Prageeth Ekneligoda said, “If the army personnel who are currently in remand custody over Prageeth’s murder are given bail, then there will be a great threat to my life. I request the President to not stop this investigation and to conclude it swiftly so the culprits will be punished.”

She also accused General Secretary of the Bodu Bala Sena, Galagoda Atte Gnanasara, Parliamentarian Wimal Weerawansa and a mob with connection to former President Mahinda Rajapaksa as being hell bent on disrupting the ongoing investigation against her husband’s disappearance.

“If these army personnel get bail, my life will be in danger, as well as even the lives of those from the Attorney General’s office who appeared on behalf of the case. I am requesting the President, Prime Minister, the UN and the Diplomatic Community to take responsibility and ensure no harm will come to me from the culprits, in the event they are bailed out,” she said.

She also noted that it has been 2265 days since her husband had gone missing and there were various rumours that he was either killed in an acid bath and that his organs were taken out and he was dumped into the sea. “Only the people who committed this crime can tell how it happened, and they are the army personnel in remand custody. There is a chance they may get bail due to lack of evidence, but I am asking the President to not stop the investigation and to expedite the investigation so that they will be punished,” she added.

    Sandhya, you are looking to the wrong people to help to bring the Parapaksa scoundrels to justice. It will not happen as these buggers are too bloody scared to charge anyone from the previous regime.

    “Only the people who committed this crime can tell how it happened, and they are the army personnel in remand custody”.

    Oh the Army personal are war heroes and they should not be touched, UN should not get involved and they should be allowed to continue the good work so they may now haunt the South having finished with the North!

    There are a few who comment in the Colombo Telegraph the army should lay their hands on, Eusense your turn is next!

      Thanks for your thumbs down! What I said was in a sarcastic sprit. All I inferred was this is a fallout of protecting war criminals calling them war heroes. These military personal are basically criminals in military garb to conceal their criminality.

      After the war no one spoke a word because people affected were 100% Tamils when these criminals took advantage to do as they pleased against the Tamils. The President himself was a criminal and racist who never should have been allowed to contest (Helping Hambantota) who gave protection to criminals.

      Had if the war criminals been arrested and punished without glorifying them as heroes none of these would have happened and Sandya Ekneligoda would not have been in this plight she is in today.

    This is will be an issue lanka to prove that Human Rights violations have now been improved in the country. So please auhotrities give this a highest priority. Alone the fact that Balusara to attack her while being in COURT premises caused Balusara to be arrested that way, but no doubt, the family may have been getting all forms of threats from the goons further support Balusara/Rajaakshe et al.
    If the family would be attacked, for sure, Rajakashes would be happy to show the world that nothing is changed since the new regime has been in power .. i mean towards the improvement of human rights issues.

            “Oh yeah!So poo likes to others poo as well eh!”

            Thanks for elevating the art of debating to a level where Confucius might be turning in his grave.

            Read what he says about wisdom:

            By three methods we may learn wisdom: First, by reflection, which is noblest; Second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third by experience, which is the bitterest.

            -Confucius

            Then read what he says about language:

            “Confucius was once asked what he would do first if it were left to him to administer a country. The Master said
            (in Professor Waley’s scholarly translation of the Analects):

            ‘It would certainly be to correct language.’ His listeners
            were surprised. ‘Surely,’ they said, ‘this has nothing to do
            with the matter. Why should language be corrected?’

            The Master’s answer (more freely translated) was:

            ‘If language is not correct,
            then what is said is not what is meant;
            if what is said is not what is meant,
            then what ought to be done remains undone;
            if this remains undone, morals and arts will deteriorate;
            if morals and arts deteriorate,
            justice will go astray,
            if justice goes astray the people will stand about in
            helpless confusion.

            Hence there must be no arbitrariness in what is said. This matters above everything.

      jim:

      Why not those accused be hung upside down, stripped of their skin to get the truth. I believe this is not something new in SL. There will be no objections if you volunteer your life for those “valiant” soldiers. Your chance to prove your loyalty.

          Yes Jim Shitty, Mrs. Amirthalingam said something nasty just like what a low class bugger like you would say. She had no class and you have no class. Additionally, this has nothing to do with a Tamil issue or Mrs. Amir. This has something to do with a journo being murdered in cold blood and his wife crying out for her husband. All you can come up with is just this garbage. You are disgrace to the Sinhala race. I have met and known so many Sinhala people, they are nothing like you. They and I saw no difference in how we looked at life here in Canada and back home. We spoke a different mother tongue, it was just that. It was garbage like you who promoted this hatred. So go and f*&* yourself you bastard.

      Why dont you go and claim asylum in Tamil Nadu or in Timbuktu.
      It will be a great releif to all of SL.

      This is not about claiming asylum this is about the person feeling insecure in the present state of the country and with regard to her husbands disapperance.

      You are still the [Edited out] joker that you are. You have no feeling for other people. Hope that you to will be in that persons shoes one day soon and feel what it is to be insecure.
      No wonder SL is in a mess and going from bad to worse.
      Stop using your mind for bad things in dark corners and think about others and what they are undergoing.

      You are just like the PM of your country. Selfish, singleminded, heartless, onehanded [Edited out].

      May Almighty GOD the author of all goodness guide, guard and protect Mrs Ekneligoda and her sons from the snares of the wolves.

      Jim Shitty, if you were in the lap of a loving mother, you will never behave this way. You were born from a science experiment gone wrong conducted at the Hambantota MV taught by grade 2 qualified Basil Parapaksa.

      “Why doe snot she go some where and claim asylum. I think Tamilnadu or TGTE is good.”

      Well I am in agreement with your suggestion.

      It is not just Sandya Ekneligoda, but all of you, the Kallthonie descendants of South Indians.

      I would be grateful to you and other descendants of Kallathonies if they left this island and went back to your ancestral land, Tamil Nadu.

      How soon can you take all your brethren back to where you rightfully belong to.

      UN could facilitate your en masse expatriation.

    It is now obvious that Rajapaksa was the man who commissioned the murder of Ekneligoda. Rajapaksa is trying his best to stop any of the arrested military men from turning state witness and implicating him. Rajapaksa is also trying to silence Ekneligoda’s wife by threats delivered through his bhikku thug squad led by the BBS.

    Mrs Ekneligoda’s fear is genuine and the government has a duty to protect her and bring the culprits to justice. A good opportunity to cage and silence Rajapaksa.

    I have my sympathy for her beloved husband. It also remind me of a story back in the days. The story trails like this,
    Mahatma Gandhi wanted to protest against salt tax imposed by the British colonial government, So he decided to disrupt the trains by removing the lines. Massage leaked in to the government and all who were there at the rail way taken in to custody indiscriminately. Following the aftermath of weeks long mass protest Mahatma Gandhi was released along with the other heroes! Even the ones who were happened to be there to use the railway as a toilet. They were all greeted with flowers and recognise as national heroes.
    Pragith [Edited out]. He was used to plot attacks against High ranking Army officers. Just because people voted MR out for his family’s incompetence and corruption these villians should not be treated as superheroes.

      the Sinhala army paid by taxpayer staff and also funded by many nations were foreign to the north that they also captured and kill civilians?? When the working class get a suit boot and gun they think they are God??
      Sinhala army is never above the law or the law to take the law into your hands.MR stupidly imitated Bush who is being questioned (see his bro never got nominated)Many a marine is being investigated and sentenced- justice is slow but sure.
      The poor should not try to choose but take what they get to be in harmony and move forward to prosperity.

    President Maithripala Sirisena or Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe will never come forward to save Sandya Ekneligoda because both of them are scared of the so called war heros and the yellow robed rogues like Gnanasara, Dhammaloka, Gunawansa and Muruththettuwe Ananda. They need the votes of the Sinhala Buddhists and hence will always get advice from these four rogues. At the BBC interview President asked the reporter what Sandya Eknaligoda knows about Judiciary and the law.

      In fact Mahinda Rajapakse was able to gather low cast sinhalese segment under the BBS to create tension by targeting mosque and churches.

      Until we find to normalize the hidden cast based mentality, people like Mahinda Rajapase will get the needed fuel to fuel the smoke to their safe.

      Will this government can do anything useful to reduce the cast based de-recognition and empower them?

    “Sandya Ekneligoda has reached out to President Maithripala Sirisena, Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe, the United Nations and the Diplomatic Community, urging them to safeguard her from being killed.”

    So, let All know, that if somethings happens to Sandya Ekneligoda , the above are prime suspects for murder, aiding and abetting and will be in remand until the murder case of resolved years later.

    Question: Why is “Yahapalanaya” delaying?

    Coming under MaRa Palanaya?

    The main victims of conflict the Tamils worked hard worldwide to force the regime to conduct credible investigation yet it is elusive.
    Only the 2 ruling communities have on going investigations and the result would be as practicable as possible.
    Even before Sinhala/Tamil terrorism murders have taken place and to date they are unanswered. The shape shape island.

    Sandhya is a modern day Viharamadevi and kudos for her to fight the Rajapaksa tyranny. All law abiding citizen in country should help this brave woman to rose to get justice for her husband who went missing after publishing a booklet named ‘Pawul Gaha’ which was all about the Rajapaksa family business which was to govern this blessed isle as a dictator.

    Rajapaksa will get the curse of this killing as well as the thousands what was killed among Nandikadal (not the Sun Goat and his killing machine operators) but innocent civilains, Rathupassala, FTZ as well as innocent Muslims in Aluthgama etc.

      Baduwe Ummaloka,

      Please do not insult a historical heroine – Viharamahadevi by comparing Sandhya E to her. According to news reports Prageeth had abandoned his legal wife and had not seen her or spoken with her for more than 3 years before his disappearance. He was not supporting her financially either. The woman is making a hue and cry now, so that she can get the lime light and perhaps some financial compensation. This is how our people are – devious and cunning and ready to take advantage of any situation. Yes, we need to find out what happened to Prageeth – whether he is no longer among the living or whether he is living in a western country under a pseudo name but stop putting this woman on the ‘murunga attha’. She has not done anything to deserve it.

    If these people can’t give justice to their own Singhalese affected person, how are they going to provide justice to affected Tamils- ha, ha.. internal investigation, who they are kidding – please UN note this carefully – sitilankans as usual hide their head inside sand dune and think no one is watching but the world is watching the movement carefully, Diaspora please wake up.
    Again and again,this modias giving chance to Diaspora to think that Prabaharan is right and Ealam is the viable solution. Hope it will not take very long for the world to punish war criminals like in Bosnia. Thuddagamunu couldn’t sleep straight but now the North Tamils couldn’t sleep straight because of the army knocking on their doors.

    The size of the Shark Tank of a former secretary of defense is 40X10X8(feet). A single shark can eat a minimum of 50 kg of meat per day, little less than probably the weight of Pradeep. This tank and the sharks were removed just after the 8th January elections. One does not need a dead body to prove that a murder has been done. Over to you the President. Please listen to Sandya and tell the judge to stand firm against any intimidation and do justice to Sandya.

    This lady is terrified of repercussions from those responsible for her husband’s disappearance.

    It is tragic to see her being attacked/abused for this.
    Even a monk had threatened her.

    She is in the same plight as other women who saw their husbands & children being arrested and bundled into buses during the last days of the war, to ‘disappear’ forever.
