Sinhala Hardliners Attempt To Stall Northern Provincial Election; Want TNA Prosecuted

Relying on the 6th Amendment to the Constitution, 5 Petitions have been filed before the Supreme Court seeking to declare the TNA is acting unconstitutionally.

Gotabaya - Secretary to the Ministry of Defence

These cases were filed by Gunadasa Amarasekera of  the Patriotic National Movement, Ven. Bengamuwe Nalaka, Swarnahansa Foundation, Buddha Maha Sanvidanaya and an organisation called the Jaffna Buddhist Association.  Applications have been filed under Article 157A (4) alleging that the objectives of the TNA under its new manifesto was to separate the country. They also seek to prevent the election scheduled for September 21.

It is reliably learnt that hard line nationalist lawyers together with certain lawyers aligned with Gotabaya Rajapaksa are to appear for the Petitioners.

Sources told Colombo Telegraph that 4 of the 5 cases were filed today and with unusual speed, the Supreme Court has fixed the cases for support tomorrow (18th September) before the De facto Chief Justice Mohan Pieris, Justice Sripavan and Justice Marasinghe. The Respondent TNA has not been served with papers. Meanwhile, state media has increased the attacks on the TNA suggesting that they should be banned under the 6th Amendment. Previously, during Chief Justice Sarath N. Silva‘s period, extremist nationalist elements managed to prevent the P-Toms agreement from being implemented soon after the tsunami and it was later revealed that it was  Sarath Silva  who had instigated that litigation.

De Facto CJ Mohan Pieris is also known to be acting hand in glove with the Government and with some extremist elements openly.

        Gota’s DEEP STATE or “State within a state” which runs the Rajpassa military dictatorship with a facade of democracy and the circus of elections is evident for all to see..

        The deep state or state within a state comprises – select officials in the military-intelligence (Hathurasinghe et al), judiciary (Mohan Peris) and administration (Lalith Weeratunge) with Gota the goon running the show..
        Voila Sri lanka’s military dictatorship with a Facade of democracy!

      what utter rubbish, FR petitions filed in SC are called within two days at most.

      This kind of bull shit remarks are belittling the quality and dignity that Colombotelegraph has built up.

      And as is the SC procedure, the respondent is given notice only if there is a case to answer.

      CT will be well served to note that lawyers aligned to Gotabaya R are not Sinhala Buddhist hardliners, if you did your research it would be easy to find out.

    After the 17th amendment to the island’s constitution, an the subsequent removal of the de jure Chief Justice (Mrs. Shirani Bandaranayake), its preposterous even to expect the present de facto CJ Mohan Peiris to act independently. The ruing family has completely Screwed with a big “S” the our sovereignty, and with it, whatever was left of the independent judiciary. I would say they are SODOMIZING the peoples’ sovereignty of Lanka, witjh gay abandon. Down with them!

    The government is in a panic situation as TNA is sure to win a landslide victory,IF there is a clean election.
    Murder of a TNA campaigner has been reported at mullaithivu.
    The usually lethargic supreme court is moving with lightening speed in this case.
    The TNA manifesto does NOT demand separation.

    Sri Rohana Manaranjana, 3 Sinhadeeshwara, Saddarmadveepa Chakrawarthi, Palapurudu, Nihathamani and Sanwedee Sri Lanka Present President Madamulana Percy Mahendra Rajapaksha will go to the history as a Person who used all his executive powers, Police and all the governmental powers against one Woman who did not afraid of all intimidations, harassments, Insults by Grade 9 Ministers and all Govt. Medias etc. etc.

    He will have a suitable place (may be in dustbin) in the history as a person who used hardline Buddhists groups such as Gaanu 5 Naansara Bebadu Balukaya, Rawana Balukaya, Singhala Rawaya and other Desha hithaishee extremist groups against Tamil and Muslims for his political survival.

    All what he could do is to ban all other political parties using his executive powers with the help of that Cheap Justice Moron Peiris. Then he don’t need to all this Election malpractices and be a 2.50 Politician.

    End of CHOGM meeting, Man Mohan Sigh wouldn’t attend. It’s they through Sharma giving the place for these morons to host this carnival on the undertaking Northern Provincial election would take place with fair means. Now all going to go the drains with its billions of people’s money already spent on this thamasa. International community is taking a hard look at what’s the latest about the legal CJ Madam as well. My friend do it to the hilt. If things go on in this fashion, it’s certain the international community would obtain a separate country for the Tamils in the north.

      Lal,

      law is only selectively implemented in Sri Lanka today. Even if they create new laws what is the point? We won’t know which ones will be implemented.

      Better to leave the Tamils alone and them to show these goons how law should be applied impartially to everybody.

    Tamil National Alliance (TNA) Chief Ministerial Candidate C.V. Wigneswaran says the idea of a separate state had died with end of the LTTE.

    He says the TNA never stood for a separate state and even now the party is targeting a solution within a united Sri Lanka.

    “The LTTE said to divide the country and have a solution. We are saying within one country to have a solution but where the provincial councils has power over its area. We never spoke of separation. That is what the LTTE said and the LTTE is now dead and with them that also went,” he said.

    Wigneswaran said he is also willing to clarify the TNA position to some Buddhist monks who have said that he will not be allowed back in Colombo over allegations he was calling for a separate state.

    TNA leader R. Sampanthan, meanwhile said it was wrong to assume that the TNA wants the country to divided and the government propaganda to that effect is misleading.

    He said that the people in the South are being instigated by the government using false statements to the effect that the TNA is trying to divide the country.

    Sampanthan rejected the idea that the TNA is taking forward the LTTE ideology. He also said the TNA is ready to work with the government if it wins the Northern Provincial Council elections.

    If Gotapaya and Buddhist extremists are doing good things to prove that Sri Lanka has already been to authoritarian system. There are two possible outcomes:
    1. Court orders to postpone Elections until the case is heard. If that happens, the government will give orders to ban TNA and arrest TNA members.
    2. Election proceeds and if TNA wins, there will be another bloodbath in Sri Lanka and Tamils will be massacred and a military rule will be established.

    International community has given sufficient warning to Sri Lanka and if either of 1 or 2 happen no one in the world can stop Sri Lanka becoming two rival nations.

    The MR agenda is for ever trying to keep this divide and base its
    politics on it. Come CW or not, the holding on to local power is more
    important in the long term than to be a glorified pariah-state leader?
    It is the sri lankan public that has to suffer if foreign intervention
    of sorts come into play.

    If Mahinda Rajapakse’s slave the Creep Justice is given instructions by his master to disrupt the NPC elections, he will do it.

    If this happens, in all seriousness, and though I am no supertor of the idea, I do not see how a separate state, some time down the line and sooner rather than later, can be avoided. Velupillai Prabaharan’s ghost will then be thanking Mahinda Rajapakse.

    Dear Latheef now it is hurting you, is it not? They have now come for you(your community). You pleaded in another article that in spite of the fact that your community, your leaders and all the Muslim countries came to the rescue of Sri Lanka in Geneva at the UN Human Rights Council,but still they are attacking Muslim places of worship and business establishments. Too late realisation!

    ..This Action perhaps is to show the International Community that Law ..democracy still prevails in Sri Lanka and to clear the name of acting CJ and to make him acceptable..however even if the judgement is given in favor for conducting the elections or to prevent …there will be no difference. Either way they all are naked…
    because …
    -IF elections are prevented ( which is very unlikely ) the CJ will prove beyond doubt that he is a stooge of the Govt ….
    – IF elections are permitted iti will be known that it is ONLY to prove that the UNHRC is wrong in their recent claim of an Authoritarian regime of the Country..and that the independence of the judiciary still prevails..therefore he will still be identified as a stooge…
    one brilliant move by the CJ 43 ensured the collapse of the Temple..

    The TNA manifesto is not talking about separation. At most it talks about Internal self determination or in other words of a Federal structure within the country. Minister Pieris hailed it as a quantum leap in the Oslo Declaration.However 6th Amendment and the consequent Sec.157A of the Constitution should be treated as bad law since it is against International norms as enunciated Article 1 and Article 25 of the U.N.International Covenant of civil and political Rights(ICCPR)

      The SC has put off the matter for reply Oct 03. TNA, if at all they chose to respond, are entitled to ask for time as they were engaged
      in the NPC elections. Rajapakses have played their cards safely
      and may have saved CHOGM. But the plan may be to wreck the NPC after a
      few months – something which the alert TNA is likely to handle
      suitably.
