Since Terrorism Has Been Terminated By Now, Will The PTA Be Abrogated? If Not Why?

By Ranil Wickremesinghe

Ranil Wickremesinghe

With a view to suppressing terrorist act of the LTTE, Parliament passed the Proscribing of Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam and Other Similar Organisations Act in 1978. However, since it was observed that this Act contained a number of shortcomings, the Prevention of Terrorism Act was passed in 1979 to replace it. Here, we took Prevention of Terrorism Act passed by the United Kingdom Parliament on terrorism in Northern Ireland as our basis.

Under this Act, action was taken against terrorists in South and North, and arrests were made. Now, the war in the North is over and the terrorism has been prevented. In such a situation, there arises no need for executing Prevention of Terrorism Act. As such, this Act should have been abrogated. At the inquiries made on this matter, the government stated on several occasions in this House itself that they are not going to execute the Prevention of Terrorism Act.

After the 11 September incident, the whole world is vigilant about international terrorist acts. The British parliament passed another Act in place of the formerly existed Prevention of Terrorism Act in order to prevent such terrorist activities. That Act has banned applying its articles for suppressing political activities.
Nevertheless, now this Act is being used for suppressing opposite political groups in Sri Lanka. Mr. Azath Sally was arrested under this Act. He is a politician who has been party to political activities both in the Opposition and the Government. At the Presidential Election 2010, he distanced himself from the United National Party and Supported Mr. Mahinda Rajapakse. At no occasion during his life time has Mr. Sally been ally to a terrorist organization.

It is said that he has been taken into custody based on a statement allegedly made by him. Politicians may make different statements. We have witnessed instances in which they make statements with as well as without responsibility. Mr. Sally made this statement at a time in which the government is taking no action whatsoever regarding harassments made against Muslims; at a time when Muslim Leaders in the government are keeping quiet.

Against such a backdrop, if there are charges that the frantic statement made by Mr. Sally contains some elements of wrongdoing and irresponsibility, what should first of all have done was to inquire whether he in fact has made such a statement and to take action under ordinary law if it is confirmed after such investigations that he has made an offence. Contrarily, his being arrested under Prevention of Terrorism Act can by no means be condoned.

For this reason, the present conduct of the government raises serious questions. The conclusion we can arrive at through this conduct is that the government is abusing Prevention of Terrorism Act to suppress its political opponents. This situation may be aggravated in future. Government may even resort to misuse this Act to suppress the waves of public protest rising against its misconduct throughout the country. This is a clear indication of the trend towards an autocracy. This is a very perilous state of affairs.

Therefore, I would like to ask Hon. Prime Minister the following:
1. Why was action taken on Mr. Azath Sally under the Prevention of Terrorism Act rather than under average law?
2. Will this Act be used further for suppressing politicians of the opposition and public forces?
3. Since terrorism has been terminated by now, will the Prevention of Terrorism Act be abrogated? If not why?

    Despite all the naysayers, haters and doubters out there (myself included). Ranil remains the only leader out there that could skipper the ship of state into a semblance of a modern democracy, at least he is best equipped.

    However, considering the cast of characters he has gathered around him (not including the young UNP MPs), in all probability we would be exchanging one set of thieves for another.

      Barney, you are assured that Ranil Wickremasinghe will not allow corruption in a future UNP govt or save any if caught as MR has been tolerating because MR himself is corrupt. Further be assured there will be Law and Order and no one will be above.

        He allowed corruption in a previous UNP government. For example, remember whose company was given the contract for repairing roads in the East? He would do the same again.

          Kohuwala, awarding a contract alone to a party does not ammount to corruption, unless procedure is violated. I concede there would have been some short comings during the short tenure of RW as PM. Afterall were not all these cross overs to MR under the UNP then who had issues with regard to their Integrity and Honesty? What would have happened if RW tried to instill discipline and honesty then, when the country’s economy had to be turned around as top priority? Would RW had survived? Can you point a finger at RW and accuse him of having misappropriated public funds, like MR? Or harbouring individuals when large sums of money have been discovered in their possession which they cannot account for? Take that Nation Building Minister, ‘Rohitha Abeygunawardene a peon called Raththaran, the chain snatcher, who has a court case put aside by MR, where he is asked to explain Rs. 485 million in his account? Not only this man there are so many like this in the present MR govt. who have been making money but no action taken. Not only the present administration is guilty of robbing money, they are above the Law when they Rape and Kill also. See the waste of public funds on Mihin Lanka, Mattala Air Port, Harbour to name a few. To whose pockets have all these money gone to? Is it to RW’s? This bugger MR is a first class Wheeler Dealer. He has played ball with the US and the Indians, first to get elected with the help of VP, only to eliminate VP and a section of the LTTE while retaining the KP section to share the spoils. These Socialist buggers who rode on the sweat and blood of the poor in this country are ruthless compared to the Capitalists whom they over threw in the ’50s. Otherwise would any sane thinking allow their off spring and supporters to import high powered, high value racing cars and bikes duty free to race flood lit, while asking the public to conserve electricity and load the electricity bills on the masses in the country? Or spend billions beautifying the Capital with water ways and walk paths, while bread is priced at Rs. 65/-? Now this is the corruption and waste we are speaking of, that will be non existent under a RW govt. in the future.

            UNP is the father of all Evil in this country,
            Father of very same PTA,
            Father of Corruption,- Made politics of governing party is the best & easiest way to become a billionaire, to detail out even 10,000 words won’t suffice.
            Father of Terrorism -(both LTTE & JVP 88/89 ),
            Father of Dictatorial Governance /Presidential Constitution ( anything is possible except turning Man in to a Woman & vice versa )
            Father of Undemocratic Governance -( Extended parliament term without election because SLFP was hijacked by nexalites ( Wijaya & Chandrika)
            Father of politicization of Judiciary- (appointed UNP polling agent from nowhere to Supreme court as Chief Justice & impeached when he showed he was a gentlemen & got “Kalu Luckey” to demonstrate & throw stones at SC judges bungalows , UNP Boss termed it as “democratic Freedom” )
            & Father of Many more , only evils,

            All those days our Ranil was a Cabinet Minister & bluest of blue eyed boy of then president who never thought governing power would ever pass on to opposition.
            Now ,perhaps UNP ‘s tactics are put to better use by SLFP making former UNP bosses kinder-garden students in governance, So mush so making Ranil & co only on lookers, perhaps this is the inheritance they Shamefully received.

              John the mutt,

              Jon jon pitikotapan, kotala kotala piti halapan..///

              One who fathered you is the father of all Evil in this country because by begetting a mutt like you he catalyzed a vicious cycle in the country where donkeys like you contracting your father’s disease of “matimollness” began to deform and destroy this land ejecting utter filth like those you posted here where you take the good as bad and bad as the good and is responsible for aiding and abetting to commit the most despicable crime ever committed on this land, enthroning the King Andere of Madamulana!
              Father of very same PTATP (Plundering Treasures of All The People) ,
              Father of Corruption,- Made politics of governing party is the best & easiest way to become a billionaire, to detail out even 10,000 words won’t suffice but to mention some of the majestic swindling and plundering: Tsunami Robbery, Norochcholai Robbery, CEB Robbery, Hedging Robbery, EPF Robbery, LTTE Gold Robbery, Mattala Robbery-even all the words in English won’t suffice to mention all the robberies this Rajapaksha family have committed!
              Father of Terrorism -(both LTTE & JVP 88/89 ),-Gave LTTE terror leader billions of poor tax payers’ money to rig the Presidential Election! There is a video in the internet where MR aided and abated the JVP against IPKF and created a wrong impression in the minds of people and deprived the country of a golden opportunity to end the LTTE problem with the mediation of India. And at the same time his sibling executed JVPers and filled the mass graves in Matale which are now emerging while MR ran to Geneva with the lists of those assassinated!
              Father of Dictatorial Governance /Presidential Constitution ( anything is possible except turning Man in to a Woman & vice versa )—Exactly! Andare has now even passed the 18A and wields all autocratic powers of a despot surpassing Executive President’s powers! A glance at the inventory of the autocrat’s powers reveal Thugs, criminals, murders, mass murderers, drug kingpins, womanizers, treasure hunters, paramilitaries, white vans, LTTEers, Casino Kings, Gamblers and in short all the evil, notorious and nefarious elements in the world! The king of folly has even surpassed the Sex-Constant-Barrier by making all the male politicians who have crossed over to lose their “maleness” and making them politically and virtually “pimps” who are prepared to even eat the cunts and assholes of Rajapakshas when they are given millions of rupees of bribes!
              Father of Undemocratic Governance -( Abrogated Presidential term limit illegally because CJ Shirani B was hijacked by bribing!!!!
              Father of politicization of Judiciary- (appointed another crook, Mohan Pieris the father of corruption, an agent from nowhere except underworld to Supreme court as Chief Justice after impeaching the lawfully appointed CJ when she (only belatedly) showed she was a gentlewoman & got “all the pathalayas and Thilanga Sumathipala” to demonstrate & throw stones at protesters against the regime and its undemocratic deeds, SLFP Boss termed it as “democratic Freedom” )
              & Father of Many more , only evils, which reach stratospherical and stupendous scales!

              All these days MR was the EP and the Minister of Finance including numerous other portfolios not to mention the lopsided and horrible grip and sway the Andere’s family holds over the entire country. This blind-eyed president who never thought and think governing power would ever pass on to opposition is making merry in the Rajapaksha dystopian dreams together with nincompoop mutts like Johns!
              Now ,perhaps Syria’s Asaad’s looting, chemical warfare on its own civilians and mass murdering tactics are put to better use by king Andere’s criminal regime making use of kinder-garden practices of disproportional prices hikes, obtaining bribes and commissions, colossal wastage, inefficiency, corruption, swindling etc. etc. in governance, So mush so making The Donkeys & co who voted for king Andere only on lookers, perhaps this is the inheritance they Shamefully received.

              John, as you say I do not want to waste time with your comment addressed to Sumedha. However please could you state in which State in Australia that Gamini D. owned this Apple Orchard? The extent and who is managing it? What is the return on investment of an Apple Orchard and whoever spread this canard, had he said that GD had oil wells, it would have been something to think about. Then as for RW giving the country to VP, if so why did not VP help RW and sealed the deal, but instead helped MR and lost his life in the end and conceded his position to KP who is looked after by MR today waiting to take over the North.

              I will leave for the readership to asses your wild accusations and mistruths, which you seem to believe as the Gospel thinking others are also ignorant as your self.

              John, a..hole,

              not worth even replying to you, but still I will give a few for thought.

              Who gave weapons & money to LTTE,(his own secretary wrote to a website) – Premadasa,

              We do not deny that because he was the same kind of moron as your Kakille king! We are also fully aware that his son Sajith is the same kind of buffalo and therefore we will efface him politically under a UNP government!

              But who gave billions of rupees to Prabakaran as bribes to rig the presidential election? Was that not tantamount to giving weapons because LTTE used that money to procure arms and ammunition to kill government combatants as well as unarmed and innocent civilians in other parts of the country?

              Who wasted billions on damn Gam Udawa & made money for himself & allowed “nawaloka” to become top multi billionaire –Premadasa

              Again, quite true! That is why Premadasas must be erased from Sri Lanka’s political geography!

              But who wasted billions-I think it is now trillions!-on damned Dayata Kirula (ammage redda, who wore the “kirula” everybody knows!), Uthuru Wasanthaya, Rata Viruvo, Maga Naguma (really mana “nasuma”), Shipless harbor, aeroplaneless mattala? Who swallowed two lanes from Colomno-Galle expressway which now holds the WR as the highway with the most number of accidents post opening in a very short period? And who holds the WR going to be to shoot down an entire paradigm of birds population in a sanctuary area only to land few planes in the megalomaniac’s home town? What about the colossal wastages involved in hedging deal, adulterated fuel imports, rotten coconut, rotten eggs?

              Who bought Apple Estates in Australia & How -Gamini D – You have not yet answered Gamini’s queries and therefore stand to lose the allegation and argument.

              Who burnt Jaffna Library ( UNP “won” Jaffna Minucipal election)-Gamini D – Gamini D was a SLFP bugger who buggered off to UNP! So we are not concerned or responsible for SLFPers heroics!

              But who set fire to Udayan, Sirasa (which is a good thing too!), Enews, Colombo Kachcheri? Who looted Colombo museum, innumerable ancient treasure troves? Who stole EPF money, farmers’ pension? And the list is the world’s longest were I to continue!

              Who gave half the country to LTTE terrorists in writing to protect his half baked govt in 2002 –Ranil!!!??

              Motherfucker, you have been ejected out to this world through a leprosyed cunt with only one petal-ask the passing astray dog on the street as to the whereabouts of the other part missing! Since you are living in the cesspit of MARA what you have got in your mutt head is loads of muck emitted by MARA, Panchayudaya, Merviya, Dumindaya, Champikaya etc. hence not capable of conceiving any valid and sane thought! I will ask only one question from the fucker-if Ranil gave half the country to LTTE terror fucker in writing then what the fucking hell did Prabakaran fucker do in helping MARA fucker to come to power by illegally, terroristically, criminally depriving Ranil his legitimate votes from the North? According to your toilet resident theory and wisdom, it is Ranil that LTTE must have chosen to be the leader of the country to claim the “balance half” of the country! But instead they chose your “idol joker” to be the president! Why? Because they know it is this “matimol” moron MARA who will fulfill their Elam dram! LTTE by today almost have posthumously achieved their projected goal Elam-the demand for a separate state, a despotic regime that continuously pours fuel into the racial, sectarian, divisive elements and demands, a world opinion growing exponentially against Sri Lanka that it is not for reconciliation, accountability and co-existence, a country that has been made to suffer an increasing number of resolutions against it at UN with the “clear and present danger” of being segregated into two if not three separate states directly as a result of Rajapaksha’s moronic way of governance!

              those thilanga/mervin/duminda were all UNP Politicos jumped to MR govt. after UNP lost power.!!!!

              Haa…haaaa.haaaaa! “Mati Mola!!!” Pass your dirty hand over your mutt head to ascertain whether there are two horns growths on it!!! Not only are these thilanga/mervin/duminda rogues but there are tens of other fuckers who must have been put behind bars by now but yet are being well fed and well oiled and looked after by your uneducated uncultured bastards solely for getting the despicable crimes of the Rajapakshas committed by them! An astray dog like the one you are was given the lease of life by the one who did it who realizes belatedly that it is of adulterated and low-bread origin, but then the fault is not found on the closest neighbor who did not commit it, but a curse is heard almost on daily basis to the passersby of your breeding place that a damned dog with two legs begot this jaundiced putrefaction to this world!

            Gamini,that was just one example, John has given many more. You are getting carried away with MR’s corruption and waste. I don’t deny any of it, just pointing out that Ranil’s UNP was no different.

              Kohuwala, if you are alleging that RW is as corrupt as MR, then you have got the wrong end of the stick. MR can never imagine to have RW’s birth right, to be born to the wealthy elite of this country and RW never had the necessity to rob. Besides RW’s family wealth has been acquired by SLFP coalition govts that Nationalised Dail News and Land without compensation. On the contrary MR and his siblings, whose father was a pauper being a curd seller down South, today is far more wealthy than RW. All what your friend John has stated are half truths which you cannot hold RW accountable. Though UNP is accused of and blamed for the present Constitution, it is not the UNP that has flouted the powers, but MR. Had the UNP done so, it is understandable. The powers vested in the post of President is for the purpose of governance to develop the country and not for dictatorial purposes of stifling dissent and self agrandisement. The sane never accept the violence and corruption carried out by the UNP under Premadasa which cannot be attributed to RW. In fact it was RW who shut the door of the UNP to all riff raff and ended confrontational politics in this country. Therefore yours or your friend’s allegations regards RW are baseless and the people of this country know the truth.

              Gamini,

              You say…if you are alleging that RW is as corrupt as MR, then you have got the wrong end of the stick.

              I am not alleging any such thing. I know that RW is an honest man himself. That is why I referred to ‘Ranil’s UNP’ and not to ‘Ranil’.

              You say..Though UNP is accused of and blamed for the present Constitution, it is not the UNP that has flouted the powers, but MR.

              Is that so? Didn’t JR strip Mrs B of her civic rights using retroactive laws that he brought in for that very purpose? Is that not dictatorial? Now why didn’t RW protest? When the Green Tigers and Ukussa groups were emptying the villages of Sinhala boys and girls to be tortured as JVP suspects why didn’t RW protest? When the news reader Richard de Soysa was taken away and murdered by UNP death squads why didn’t RW protest?

              The simple fact is that although RW is personally honest, he ignored the crimes of his colleagues and leader. When he was PM he ignored the crimes of his ministers.

            • 0

              Kohuwala, with reference to the civic rights deprival of Mrs. B was due to her amending figures in Land Reform, which was proved at the Commission of hearing and it was the Commission that proposed the removal of her Civic rights for misuse of power. This by no means an act of dictatorial power. There was no usurping of powers of the Constitution as done by MR today to have kicked the 17th amendment and to introduce the 18th amendment.

              As for your claim why RW did not protest when youth were hauled as suspects of JVP, there were no identification tags or otherwise to find who was and who was not JVP as all those who were dealt, according to your assesment are innocent. Then who killed so many innocent bread winners of families, Planters, Police and Forces members and their families? Is it the LTTE? Had the JVP not resorted to killing, then they too would have been spared. There is very little that RW could have done in such a scenario, where the reins were not in his hands. RP did the same type of killing what MR is doing today. Had RW tried to stall, possibly he would have been a victim of JVP himself. He bided his time and today he has cleaned the UNP of all the undesirebles. Can you point one incident where he has personaly authorised any killing of anyone. On the contrary there are many murders committed at the behest of RP and MR as both are proven Killers.

            Is Ranil honest? That’s not what Fedrica Janz wrote in her many articles in Sunday Leader sometime back with substantial proof.

            Honest politicians are dead and gone a long time back. Only corrupt could remain in the business of politics today. It is virtually impossible for an ordinary man to engage in politics and become a member of Pradeshia Saba leave out becoming a Member of Parliament. So, only naive like Gamini thinks Ranil Wick or any of today’s politicians are honest.

            What John written here is absolutely right. JRJ has introduced a system for all and sundry politicians to be corrupt.

              Anti Corrupt, alright just state one incident where RW has been proved, to be corrupt when you state that FJ had written many an article of RW being dishonest? Further you try to confirm the rubbish of John as truthful when he himself cannot vouch for any. How pathetic of your ilk to slander others without proof which is an inborn trait of your kind. The reading public knows who are corrupt and who are not. There are none so blind as those who do not wish to see the truth.

        A fish rots from the head down. When an organization or state fails, it is the leadership that is the root cause. Mahinda is rotten to the core…but so are the people who voted for him and still support him after all the underhand things he has done. During the 30 year war a metamorphosis of Sri Lankan society took place making them accept good as bad, and bad as good. Today people who become successful through underhand deals or drug businesses…and those who get away with murder and rape…and those who cross over to the side of the government have become heroes in the eyes of these people. Ranil is an honest leader…but the people of today don’t care about honesty…the more corrupt you are the more they admire you. Ranil can turn this country around, but ONLY if the people let him. I only hope by the next election that people will realise what crooks MR and his family are and vote for whoever the opposition candidate is.

        Ranil is a dictator and power-hungry unprincipled clown who thinks that the Commonwealth of clowns that is a platform for third world dictators and a British colonial relic that is totally IRRELEVANT institution is gods gift to the world. Ranil was spouting Latimer House rules from his ASS during the impeachment of the legitimate CJ and where are we now?!

        SL Civil society and trade Unions need to lead a protest campaign to ABORT the CHOGM in November which is means to boost the Rajapassa Military dictatorship while bankrupting Lanka – with British and Indian collusion. ABORT CHOGM CAMPAIGN must start NOW!
        Rajapassa bribed Britain and India for CHOGM to boost his military dictatorship and show off. Democracy and the economy is Lanka is the victim of this corruption.. The Sri Lankan economy will crash after the CHOGM because of all the national debt and waste of public funds to host the Commonwealth Circus. Democracy will be finished off before CHOGM as Colombo will be in a military lock down for

        1. Britain got the million dollar Roll Royce engine deal from Sri Lankan Airlines for Camaron’s support for CHOGM. Sri Lanka cannot afford the cost of Rolls ROyce plane engines or the Commonwealth Circus. The country is in massive debt ant those funds would be better spend on up grading the public bus and train transport system.

        2. India was promised the Northern PC election and the Sampur power plant to control the Trinco Harbour which is desperately wanted to balance China in Hambantota.

        Ranil is a self-seeking dictator who will not let young and capable folk like Dayasiri or Rosy come up in the party. Of course, Sajith P and Karu are morons and cannot win an election on their own steam – just like Ranil, but there are many other capable folk in the UNP but RE

    There exists the Prevention of terrorism act in the UK even though they were no where near, to have faced the same situation as SL . I wish out politicians are more educated on international politcs when they open their mouth . Stop and search warrants are also enforced for the safety of the public in the UK .

      You mean the mother of all terrorism is an example? The west is hypocrisy and there is security for some not all. Why did they shoot a Brazilian student with no questions asked? UK is the thorn in the EU economy and now wants to be the sole controller of the commonwealth as the election results show. Who keeps Graft congress in power none other than the UK. What did the former UK defense minister establish in SL well the airline contract so William Hague is dumb.
      SL voted for a warlord now live with it- Aiyobowan.

    The misuse of the PTA continues with a vengence. Here only patriots are the Rajapakse family. All others are branded traitors or terrorist. What happened to General Fonseka? Even his family was harrassed. Then Shirani Bandaranaike. The case against her husband is being dragged only due to the CHOGM issue.

    On the other hand the hate mongers like the BBS and terrorist like Karuna, KP and Daya Master are given 5 star treatment. Criminals like Mervyn, Duminda walk scott free. The whole system of law and justice has become a big joke. The minister of justice speaks against the arrest of Azad Sally but he remains in his position like a paid servant of the regime.

    It should not be abrogated. Terrorism is a global fact. As we are a member of the global community, it also affects us. The fact that such laws are misused by politicians all over the world doesn’t mean they ought to be a abrogated.

    Here is the answer for those who balme Mr. Wickramasinghe for not sharing his thoughts.
    Every Muslims should refrain from voting for this regime.
    I/We have been closely watching the BBS activities. This criminal ‘sect’ has got nothing to do with Buddhism. Its purely some individuals personal idea and agenda for their own survival. So every Buddhists must for against this tyranni. Tamils had had enough. the next target is the Catholics and Christians. they too should not vote this regime. If there is a future regime change they all know where they would be ended up. they cannot affored that to happen. Millions of dollars been Embezzled in many ways. Truth will be coming out soon. Its better for a united opposition front to fight as one unite. Its now an open secret that what are behind this viltures BBS.

      Pandu, you re right – BBS sect is just like the JVP or alike activities that led the 89 insurgency in the country let missing over 50k youth of the country. So, their voices emerged through their unrest with funding bodies like Norway offering them colossal sums of funds.

      All parties should get together and protest under one umbrella. This should be led by none other than country^s current OPPOSITION leader RW. I really dont think that there exist any other leader that could have sufficient experience to stand against CRIMINAL GANG- built by Rajapaske.

      Predominant buddhist nation will surely support ones those who respect dignity of life. They the people deserve security for their families and generations. So, RW should start all forms of awareness programs from village level. Need of the hour is to strengthen the hand of GRAND OPPOSITION

    Ranil Wickramasinghe, you have communicated well by using the Colombo Telegraph. Over the last two years you have also regained recognition as the Leader of the Opposition. It is high time you invite immature politicians like Sajith Premadasa and his supporters to work with you, to strengthen the UNITED NATIONAL PARTY.

    The next task is to unite the opposition. There is room to sharpen your Leadership and Public Relations skills to face the next Presidential election.

    This undemocratic action should be used to urge the Government to exclude Members of Parliament and few other specified categories of politicians from the provisions of the Prevention of Terrorism Act. The questions one and two are good questions. We cannot remove this Act and allow the Tamil Diaspora or the opportunists in Tamil Nadu to once again destabilize Sri Lanka!

      Now they rulers are trying to paint a totally different picture to make clear the sudden arrest of Sally – why the same PTA was not the case at the time BBS threatened the state and lanken folks not once many times is people^s puzzle today.

    Ranil was silent when this Draconian law used against hundreds and thousands of innocent Tamils for several years.(other than the Cease fire period)Lots of Police officers have made big money by using this law against these Tamils.The detention order was another weapon used against opponents including political.All these laws and tactics had been used against Tamils with the support of Muslim and Sinhalese politicos in the past are now gradually turning towards themselves now.

    Apart from the rationale upon which the PTA became part of the law in the late 1970s, what it was eventually used was to break the backbone of the Colombo Tamil business community from their traditional hold in the Pettah and elsewhere in Colombo and the Western Province. Hundreds in the Police and the Army higher tiers made huge fortunes milking the Tamils on false accusations of being linked to Tamil militancy. Taxi drivers struck up a lucrative business by spying on Tamil visitors to Tamil homes and passing on the information to the Police who quickly arrived and rounded the Tamils – most of whom had arrived in Colombo to the homes of their friends/relatives on legitimate business. Many left their businesses and others left the country. Their enterprises were bought over by other communities – in many instances for a song. The PTA was used also to wake up women and children from seedy lodging houses in the Pettah, in their nightwear, and inhumanely dumped into buses at 1 a.m. to be forced by the Police “to get out to your part of the country. You have no place here (in Sinhala land)” Now the pendulum is swinging back striking other communities as well. No one rejoices at the latter’s plight. Dtill Tamils still continue to be the greater sufferers of the PTA that has long lost its avowed validity.

      I agree with you RN. It is not the law a problem. The problem is how it is used by those in Power. It is true that UNP made same mistakes and misused when they were in power. For example, we know who burnt the Jaffna library and who attacked TULF MP Yogeswaran. If the law is implemented properly those criminals responsible for that crime would have been behind the wars. Unfortunately, in Sri Lanka politicians are above the law and law enforcing body is just there to follow the orders of criminals. It is shame that most Sri Lankans are happy to this sort of illegality and proud of this nation. Are we really proud of this Nation?

        Ajith,

        As a citizen, a Tamil and a critic of the shortcomings of the State I feel threatened with an Extra-ordinary law like
        the Sword of Dramocles where I can be taken, without question –
        and held incommunicado for 48 hours, before being produced before a stipulated legal officer. Within the 24-48 hours many have been assaulted into submission, agreed to part with large sums of money to be relieved from the torture and so on. Dozens of Tamils returning to Sri Lanka have been thus killed at the airport. It happened to multiple thousands of Tamils all over the country. Only when it happened to Ekniligoda (?) and this loose-canon Sally does it engage the wrath and attention of the public.

        One of the main demands of Mahinda Rajapajse in his several visits to UNHRC in Geneve in the 1989 period was to call for the removal of this dangerous claus from our law. I ask for the same.

    Divide, supress and shutdown are Rajapakse’s doctrine.

    Both Opposition parties and people should realise this and should find ways to overcome this hurdle to take back our country, our liberties and our rights.

    Rolls Royce engines for already 50 million rupee daily loss making airline is a no go. There is absolutely no point of advising on economy to a craszy corrupt mad dog.

    BOTH OPPOSITION AND THE GENERAL PUBLIC SHOULD BRING IN MORE LAWSUITS, IMPEACHMENTS, NO CONFIDENCE MOTIONS, SATHYAGRAHAS, FASTING AND PROTESTS, SIGNATURE CAMPAIGNS,NEWS CONFERENCES,VOLUNTEER WORK FOR POOR, COMMUNICATION AND PUBLICITY, GO INTO RAJAPAKSE MINDSET AND INSIDER GAME PLAN ARE FEW WAYS TO FIGHT AGAINST THE REGIME.

    Mr. Ranil Wickramasinghe also accepts that Sally made irresponsible remarks. So, Sally got trouble.

    What is wrong if this is continued in a positive direction.

    LTTE also was a result of politicians making irresponsible statements and acts. Most tamil politicians paid for their irresponsible acts and words.

    USA had only one incidence September on 11 th. They haven’t dismantled anything that they established after that.

    Sri Lankans suffered for 30 years. Tamil expats are still looking for ways to create havoc in Sri Lanka and you are aware of those.

    Amidst all those, muslims also do their best to expand every way possible in parts of Sri Lanka. There are Tamil and muslim alliances and tamils are doing their best to create rifts between Tamils and muslims.

    The tourist in the chicken coop :)

    Once upon a time, on a sunny morning on Idiot Island, a man looked out of the window and saw a tourist inside his chicken coop. So the man went to the bedroom where his wife was still asleep and woke her.
    “There is a tourist in the chicken coop,” he said, “and I think he is hatching an international conspiracy!”
    His wife opened one angry eye and looked at him.
    “Tourism has been completely defeated,” she said. “There are no longer any tourists on Idiot Island…not even the ones who went around waving white flags!”
    So the man walked out slowly into the garden and went towards the chicken coop. The tourist was still there.
    “Are you a tourist or a state tourist? The man asked. “I’m a tourist, and I’m hatching an international conspiracy using NGO money to bring the government of Idiot Island into disrepute!” the tourist replied.
    So the man walked back into the house and roused his wife again. “The tourist is hatching an international conspiracy using NGO money to bring the government of Idiot Island into disrepute!” he said.
    His wife sat up in bed and looked at him coldly.
    “You are an unpatriotic idiot who doesn’t love his country,” she said, “and I’m going to have you arrested under the Prevention of Tourism Act!”
    The man who was a patriot, who didn’t boast about it to anyone, thought for a moment. “We shall see about that,” he said. Then he walked back towards the chicken coop to watch the tourist. But the tourist had vanished! Maybe a ‘White Unidentified Four-wheeled Object’ (WUFO) had made him vanish thought the man.
    The wife got up and dressed as fast as she could. She was very excited, thinking about the reward she would get for capturing a traitor. So she hung the national flag from the window and telephoned the Peacekeepers and the Minister for the Prevention Of Tourism, (POT) and told them to hurry to her house as soon as possible!
    When the Peacekeepers and the Minister of POT arrived, they sat down and looked at her with great interest.
    “My husband,” she said, “saw a tourist inside our chicken coop this morning!”
    The Peacekeepers looked at the Minister of POT, and the Minister of POT looked at the Peacekeepers.
    “He told me that the tourist was hatching an international conspiracy using NGO money!” she said.
    The Minister of POT looked at the Peacekeepers, and the Peacekeepers looked at the Minister of POT.
    “He told me the tourist was planning on bringing disrepute on the government of Idiot Island!” she said.
    At a signal from the Minister of POT, the Peacekeepers leapt from their chairs and seized the wife. She put up a terrific struggle, but they finally got her under control, just as the husband came back from the chicken coop.
    “Did you tell your wife you saw a tourist in the chicken coop?” asked the Minister of POT.
    “Of course not,” said the husband. “Tourism has been completely defeated and there are no longer any tourists on Idiot Island…not even the ones who went around waving white flags!”
    “That’s all I wanted to hear,” said the Minister of POT. “Take her away. I’m sorry sir, but your wife is a threat to national security!”
    So they took her away, cursing and screaming and locked her up in a “Welfare Holiday Camp” under the ‘Prevention of Tourism Act.’
    And so the husband lived happily ever after.

    The Moral of the story:
    Don’t count your international conspiracies before they are hatched.

      Presi, good one. Some times you may have heard of the following but for those who have not.

      Once there was severe argument as to which part of the Human Body should be Boss. The Brain claimed that it should be Boss because the body can not do without thinking. Then the hands claimed that it is the hands that put the food in the mouth, for the Brain to get nourishment, therefore Hands should be Boss. Then the Legs countered stating that the Hands cannot food in the mouth if the Legs do not move the body to where the food is, therefore Legs should be Boss. Like this all parts of the body began to make their claim to be the Boss. Then suddenly a murmer was heard and it was the arsehole claiming the post and all laughed. The arsehole got angry and shut itself completely. Two days later the body went limp, the brain delirious and almost collapsed. A quick meeting was held and all agreed to recognize the arsehole as the BOSS.
      The moral of the story is that to be the Boss any arsehole (MR) can and need not be Intelligent or Honest as (RW).

    PTA has not been abrogated because it is useful to the regime for silencing those who are opposed to it and not because the threat of LTTE terrorism is still present. It is a perfect tool the Rajaksa regime and will keep using it to further it’s own ends.

    Right now Ranil is the only leader who has the vision, mission and the right attitude to take Sri Lanka to the world but the stupid masses wouldn’t give him a break.

    By signing the peace accord, he – in this time even a cat didn’t die – for three years quietly let the LTTE to get weaken for thousands of their harden fighter who never saw the outside world, left them. He was the one who was instrumental in separating Karuna from the LTTE using Ali Zahir Moulana. He used the long rangers, the army intelligence operatives who went deep into the enemy territory to eliminate most of their middle and low level leaders. He was fighting the war intelligently by keeping the international community along with him. Due to all these advantages only in the later part of the war, the forces had the upper hand to fight the LTTE.

    If the war continued in this manner, we could have saved lot of lives, money and properties. Also the country would have come out clean with it’s image and good will with the world.

    At the war reconstruction aid conference, he got the the international community to commit over US 4 Billion for reconstruction and developments. Most these moneys were grants which we do not need to repay and the rest were at very low interest to cover the administrative cost only. We would never ever get another opportunity like this again, the present bad world economy wouldn’t allow these aid giving countries to grant aids in this way again.

    At that time he had a very good plan of actions to develop and up lift the economy to provide a very good stand of living for all. We lost all these, it’s all because our people are well educated but wouldn’t use their brain. Their IQ is nill, zero when things come to these kinds of things.

    Its a shame that our public was so foolish enough to miss this wonderful opportunity and suffering the hell now from all the sides for they believe and trust all these gullible politician who wouldn’t be able to full fill their fake promises.

    It appears to me that UK has not yet abrogated their Terrorist Prevention act, despite the threat from Terrorism is low. I do not see any requirement SL PTA to be repealed as LTTE is still a powerful force in the international sphere.

    Secondly, as suggested Salley should be questioned not based on SL PTA but in the normal civilian court. I think government has taken an upper hand and show their moral high ground.

    Thirdly, Ranil is not a good leader for their party, his failure have strengthened the government and will do whatever they want because of there is no strong opposition.

    Terrorism has not been eliminated. Only Prbhakaran and his band of core terrorists have been eliminated. Terrorism is in Sri Lankan blood, whatever their ethnic origin. Just trample on the toes of any Sri Lankan by accident or by design, you will experience what Sri Lankan terrorism is. One public terrorist called Kudu Duminda has been released to the society by Presidential grace implemented by Attorney General and CJ. All UPFA vote catchers go round terrorising the public and committing murder with impunity and even the ploice support them and the victims are the ones that they in turn terrorise even after the event. UNP, JVP, JHU,Muslim Parties, TNA and all other tamil parties, diaspora (tamil/muslim/sinhala) have their terrirst elements and organized to bully and terrorise their opponents materially or with words. Government apparatus continues to terrorise its citizens. The title of this article by this arch tetrrorist when he was in power in Batalanda has no meaning. He is totally out of touch with ground reality. The answer to Sri Lankan terrorism is not repealing PTA. Laundering the Sri Lankan blood may be the answer. Since that is not practicable, I really don’t think that Sri Lankans will have a peaceful existence. It’s jungle law. Sprats will have to live with piranahs and sharks.

    Ranil’s new ally TNA”s two senior members are under investigation for terrorism type activities in the North.

    Ranil was pounding the dirt tracks in Pudithikuruppu and Mulikaval supporting them as recently as last momth.

    Sally is a hard core UNPer who has formed a Muslim version of the TNA.

    And is under investigation for inciting racial hatred and violence.

    Ranil himself held a vigil with his new mate Sambnadan inside the Parliament in aid of the moderate vigil which is a direct result of Sally’s activities.

    The great majority of the inhabitant population would like to ask Ranil whether these developments are conducive to abbrogation of an Act which has saved the country from suicide bombs and assasinations for the last four years?.

    They would also like to ask him whether he has seen or read the details of the carnage in Iraq , where his overseas mates established demcoracy?.

    Ranil should have noted the Defence Sec’s interview in the Business Standard, where he has explained how the overseas LTTE rump has been attempting to raise funds and to regroup to destabilize Srilanka since Nanthikadal.

    Very encouraging to note that many people have been involved in commenting on this subject by Mr. Ranil Wickramasinghe- The Leader of the Opposition. It would be very relevant to examine the track record of Mr. Wickramasinghe, since he was “catapulted” to politics by his uncle Late Hon. J.R. Jayawardene.

    1. His first important assignment was as the Minister of Education. We in Sri Lanka know who ran that Ministry. He was none other than Gonawala Sunil, a well know underworld thug. When the situation got beyond even his (Mr. Wickramasinghe’s) conrol, the people took the upper hand and got rid of him. Till then Mr. Wickramasihe was supportive or fell himself a victim. He did not do anything that could be valued or to be rcorded as his and in his favour while in the Ministry.

    2. The next important assignment was as the Prime Minister of Sri Lanka under Mrs. Chandrika Cumaranatunga- the ex President. In this assignment Mr. Wickramasinghe did make a name and left an “indelible” mark in signing the “Cease-fire Agreemnent” with Probakaran, even without the knowledge of the Commander-in-Chief – the President and the Cabinet. One of his architects of this Agreement today holds an important Ministery in the MR Government. Anothor who made millions on the “deal” with Norway tried to be an “Associate” through Local Government politics, but failed and we do not know where he is and what he is doing. But he would not have given up and could be behind closed doors.

    3. The next contribution Mr. Wickramasinghe made to the country and the nation was “secretively” lobby for the cancellation of the GSP + given by the EU. Perhaps, you would remember, when he was questioned in Parliament by Hon.Dinesh Gunawardene as regards this involvement, Mr. Wickramasinghe gave a very “impressive” reply. He said “what is wrong even if I have done that”. (In Sinhala he said “Mama ahema korath, eke ethi veradda mokakda?).

    4. The next MR. Wickramasinghe took up a national issue was against the “rising cost living”. He organised a “PATHOLA” march and protest rally where his supporters “smashed pots and pans” on the road. That was during the countary faced a devastating flood situation under which we experienced heavy damages to the crops, consequently sky rocketing the prices of agricultural products. That showed his “knowledge” and “experience” of the local conditions and tested his timing of “political agitations”.

    5. The next important event was the passing of the 18th Amendment virtually making MR the “KING” in all spheres of public life. As usual the Opposition voted against it in Parliament, but did he explain this to the Public as the Leader of the Opposition? No protest rallys or even public utterances or references to it. Why? Because he knows that will also give him the powers to “control” and “manipulate” the Public Service including the Judiciary, if and when he occupys that “Chair”, which I doubt very much and wish he will not get it.

    6. Now he wants to know what this Government will do to the PTA. We are just three to four years after eradicating the LTTE menace internally and still struggling with the “clearing” of those areas which were under the control of the LTTE where large “haul” of explosives and weapons are being dug out. Still, although the Government is boasting of “rehabilitation” of the ex LTTE combatants, their day to day activities have to be monitored and watched, specailly because there is a very visible and active participation by the “Diaspora” to de-stablize and make a reality of the dream of a “separate state”. In addition, various organizations have sprung up (with or without Government support) in disrupting the peace of the countrry. Has Mr. Wickramasinghe as the Leader of the Opposition and a person to take over the running of the Government affairs, considered this situation and ask this question? On the other hand what does he “recommend” to do? In my opinion one need not be a “professor” in learning to understand this situation. What is needed is “Common Sense”. Does Mr. Wickramasinghe display even that ability of “common sense”?

    7. As regards his “political maoeuvres” it is sufficient to draw the attention to the changes he did to the UNP Constitution in order to “secure” his Leadership for an extended period of six years. In that respect he matches very well with MR.

    8. I still belive he is better of as the Leader of the Opposition merely because MR will want and love him to be that and for that he will “look after and maintain” Mr.Wickramasinghe for ever.

    Ranil is another lifetime member of the Elete Parliament club with unlimited pleasure, perks and privileges.

    These are nothing but our Blood sucking leeches. No fighting for our justice, rights and liberties, but counting the days to win next election or to stay as opposition leader for life.

    He could turn his tongue according to his wishes. The ever crook JRJ’s nephew.
