Sinhala Video: Thushara Speaks On The Scandal Of Namal Rajapaksa’s Law Final

The scandal of Namal Rajapaksa, eldest son of President Mahinda Rajapaksa, Member of Parliament, and heir apparent, receiving favoured treatment by the authorities at the Sri Lanka Law College at his attorneys-at-law final examinations grabbed media attention in year 2011.

Thushara Jayarathna, another candidate at the exam, alleged in complaints made to the police, Law College and even the then Chief Justice, that Namal Rajapaksa had been accommodated separately in an air-conditioned room with internet enabled computer facilities to sit for his examinations.

In the present political climate of Sri Lanka, the courage of Jayarathna’s decision to go public does not need to be retold. He has not only faced physical harm and intimidation for his trouble, but also received no justice either from the Law College or from the Sri Lankan courts. The Supreme Court has thrown out his fundamental rights case on technical grounds, thereby exhausting all his local remedies.

In this interview with Beyond Boston Thushara Jayarathna explains what has happened to him after he reveled the scandal;

    Colonial master certain institutions in order to satisfy the needs of Ceylonese people who faithfully served to them. Low college one such institution.

    At present, you can PhDs via mail.

    So, what is so big if he were given question and answer papers in advance.

    Jaffna Tamils were used to do the same. this year muslim students in the Low college did the same, I suppose, because Justice minister was a muslim.

      the difference is that then there is no equality in this country. as for jaffna tamils and law college muslim students, you need to bring proof. it shows at what grade you dropped out of school – justice minister doesn’t administrate law college exams and entrance and if that’s the case justice minister is just the president’s side kick.

      Your comment is totally Incompetent, irrelevant, and immaterial!
      Are you again trying to deviate people from commenting stupid LEELA?

      What more to say about this Cruel Brutal Murderous regime.
      The funniest thing is that the people when they have power think nothing would happen to them. Worlds most dangerous terror org LTTE and its ruthless, megalomaniac leader died like a dog in the end. Late Mr. R. Premadasa who thought he was a King, too blown to pieces.
      This regime soon will fall like nine pins. The beggars will suffer!!!

      Thank you CT.

      The Law college computer lab is airconditioned and has internet access when the computers are turned on and the wi fi is enabled. This room is made available to VIPs sitting the exam such as Hirunika Premachandra and Akila Viraj Kariyawasm etc.

      The law college exams are essay based, with most questions being very predictable. Any one who studies the previous three years exams could easily predict the questions that will come in this years exam. I fail to see how the internet could have helped Mr NR even if those computers were turned on and internet enabled.

      IF that’s the case, anytime a Sinhalese is the Justice minister, all Sinhalese pass out? really? Stupid to the core… matter of fact what you say is that All Sinhalese who passed out of Law college didn’t perform to the best of their ability, but were passed off? Interesting theory… BTW Rauff Hakeem is MR’s lap dog, just like how Tony Blair was to G.W.Bush.

      Muslims are clever that’s the only conclusion that even a small children can understand in this scenario, Thushara has proved Namal has cheated the exam, in your case you need to prove that muslims have cheated in anyway, you cant just since the minister is a muslim therefore they did well, that proves you’re really an idiot and no brain to pass an exam so bcos of jealousy telling bad about other communities.

    At present, in the west, you can earn PhDs via mail.

      Sorry, you should be insane to feel like that – according to you, there should not exist a rule of law in a country. If many would feel the way you have been – no wonder that we will end up like the case in Somalia soon.

      He clearly challenges he would come back to srilanka if they assure him about no threat to his life. Actually, this kind of case – should be investigated by International court.

      Jim softly, I never knew tha you would be such an idiot!
      The Jaffna Tamils never got any papers! Neither did the Muslims! I do not know where you dreamt up all this? Possibly you read it in your version of Mahavamsa! This is the problem with your lot. Just swallow anything that you hear without any reasoning. Call your self a buddhist and you forget the precepts. The holy one said never believe anything because you heard it. Always question and investigate to find the truth yourself.
      The Jaffna Tamils flowered in a system entirely governed by code of ethics. Proper index numbered examinations in a foreign language common to all conducted in total anonymity without any reference to the candidates race religion or language! How dare you insult those scholars who went far and wide in the world and brought fame to the motherland.
      Not the current corrupt system of exams favoring ethnic majorities who, it’s a pity cannot find a position in a competitive market not only in Srilanka but anywhere in the world!

      Hey JimSofty, you are really soft in the head and I am sure there is a place reserved for you in the lunatic asylum. In addition to bumming your bosses and your attempts to justify blatant misconduct and fraud of your masters, you are also murdering the Queen. God bless her, she better wear an armor plated dress with you around. Better stick to the Lingua Franca you know, and your stupidity might not be exposed internationally. At least your lies just might sound better.

        People should rally round to protest this regime if not today tomorrow. Enough is enough.

        In the last phase of milltary offensive against ltte terror, over 40k terrorists and civilians went missing got killed. But the next war – srilankens against Rajapakshe family and his clans will cost us many more thousands soon. This will be the struggle sooner or later.

    Dear Thushara ,

    you are a true brave son of mother lanka , your name has already been added to that bravery list along with General SF and the former CJ( those people had the back bone to challenge the monster ) .
    My advice to you Thushara , don’t even think of going back to Srilanka under any circumstances , if you do , you are putting yourself in a great danger , stay where ever you are , go back ONLY after this murderous regime’s demise .

    Good luck & all the best

            i don’t think so , SL is not a top priority as far as top players concerned , if we had any valuable natural resources , sure any thing is possible. Here are a few facts to ponder !
            Ausis – helping tremendously to promote the Human right situation in SL by providing maritime support.
            British – Engage in Rolls Royce diplomacy.
            American- busy on bringing toothless (useless) resolution after resolution .
            India – fishing in the trouble waters i.e Sampoor , CEPA .
            China- Taken undue advantage of the situation and busy on providing commercial loans on white elephant projects.
            Russia – Typical Russian approach, couldn’t be bothered , sell military equipment as much as they can.

      Those lanken dons should be punished to allow idiots to be awarded by PhD titles. Not only rascal like politians, but dons with academic titles and with years long experience as highly educated professional should be rigorous minded not allowing any idiots to abuse University degrees. Many of the great scholars that lanka produced to run international chairs were originated from lanken universities. At that time, their DONS never allowed politicians to intervene abusing the system. For me looking at the manner, lanken journalists repeately using the titles such as PhD as prefix to SOME thug minsters- repeately is a great ridicule. Those who further use those titles in describing whatever the issue those ministers have been involving- is not at all accetable. It is just a disgrace to entire highly educated community. Why Uni Dons stay blind and deaf is just becuase of the reason – Thusara pointing out in the viedio/audio. I respect Thusara by forwarding all these to UN bodies to pay close attention on the issue and trace it how govt crminals do it on broad light under the rule of most brutal rule in SRILANKA since independence.

    This video is a great evidence to prove how the authorities exercise state crime. This fearless lanken hero has dared to risk his life not once several dozens of times until he moved out of the country – I have no doubt that his case on the west will easily be recognized. This story is evident. If it is not rulers have to prove the contrary. This is just one incident of hundreds. His explanations make us very clear how GOTA himself handles police and white van indicents to abduct this kind of people.

    Srilanka is fast becoming a truly corrupt banana republic, where money and power call all the shots and justice, rule of law, human rights or basic decency no longer have a place. The filth is dripping down from the top to all levels of our society…The crooks at the top are setting the tone and the younger generation will no longer know the good values that previous generations of srilankans grew up with. Now only money and power talks…what a very sad state of affairs for our country.

    Frightening. Brings to memory the fate that overtook Mujibur Rahman, the founding Father of Bangladesh, who later sided with the smuggler
    mafia. That country remains, in the words of Henry Kissinger, a basket-case. The only different it is far worse now since Kissinger spoke.

    It was Shirani Bandaranayake CJ43 who came down from Supreme court bench and shake hand and congratulated to this guy soon after he sworn in as an Attorney-at-Law before her.If my memories are correct, there were photographs in the Internet and printed media to this effect.

    Namal is heir apparent no doubt (thanks to Ranil & Party) , let him acquire all the qualifications possible (just like Mahinda did during his days)
    So that future Sri Lankan president Dr Namal R ,will address United Nations One day as Dr NR.
    So MR is making no mistake now, to make it happen in future.
    The whole country knows that MR struggled from 24yrs age, to become the president and finaly defeated the LTTE. Is that not enough from Rajapaksas.Everyone knows there were same kind of stories to MR.
    But ,fnally he came overcoming all hurdles.
