Sirisena Awards Lanka’s Highest Military Ranks To Mass Murder And Corruption Suspects

President Maithripala Sirisena has just promoted Wasantha Karannagoda, a suspect charged with the murder of 11 young men abducted and illegally detained by his intelligence officers in 2008-2009 to the rank of Admiral of the Fleet.

Roshan Goonethilake and Wasantha Karannagoda

In a shocking move President Sirisena issued a gazette in this regard on 5 August.

Earlier this year Karannagoda the former Navy Commander was a fugitive from justice and the Fort Magistrate declared him a flight risk and imposed a travel ban on his passport.
Days later Karannagoda successfully petitioned the Supreme Court and got a stay order against his arrest by the CID on the murder and conspiracy tk murder charges.

Insiders say Sirisena might be trying to curry favour with former Defence Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa who is tipped to be nominated as candidate from the SLPP with the promotion for Karannagoda. The former war time navy commander is a close associate of Gotabaya Rajapaksa and is likely to play an important role in a future administration headed by the ex Defence Secretary.

The same Gazette notice also announced the promotion of Air Vice Marshall Roshan Goonethilake to the rank of Marshall of the Air Force. Goonethilake was the war time chief of the Sri Lanka Air Force.

Goonethilake has been questioned multiple times in connection with the 2006 MiG-27 procurement by the Sri Lanka Air Force. Gotabaya Rajapaksa and his first cousin and former Ambassador to Russia Udyanga Weeratunge are under investigation for money laundering and misappropriation to the tune of USD 14 million through the purchase of the MiG 27s from Ukraine. FCID investigations found Sri Lankan state funds had been channeled to a shell company named Bellimissa Holdings located in the British Virgin Islands.

    Who or what Is MS?
    Multiple sclerosis is an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system that disrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body.

      This shows everything about SIRISENA.
      :
      The situation us the 6.2 mio voters is more or less like taking CHILLIES throwing Ginger. Latter is a saying in Sinhala Vernacular.
      :
      These BPs would do anything any everything so long the GRASS eating majority would remain MUM.
      .
      They deceive even dead bodies, for their political games of the lower level to stay in Power. I would be very happy, if any natural disasters would take the lives of SIRISENA and RAJAPKSHE not letting them ruin this nation anyfurther.
      Who do they think they are to abuse the very same nation this brutal manner ?

      I cant even see MS appearing before anywhere. He is NO GOOD enough to be a VILLAGE headman, but we were caught by his abusive politics.
      Fist we should be able to trust him. There not a single person would respect what is being dropped by his lips.
      :
      Uneducated men to have taken ground, for leading the nation, has ruined this nation. All these men should rather be destroyed by any kind of methods that then will create a situation new leaders to take the ground.

        If all these men would have been taken to slaughtering house could relieve the nation for sure RIGHT ?
        :
        Yet today most ignorant but greedy and abusive president as the minister of Defence stays mum regarding the PASKU irida – easter sunday attacks that took the lives of the innocient of the innocience. This is all because the bugger president is secretly connected to Pohotuwa led by former President aka srilanken Mugabe for his extension. The penises of these both are tied as no independent decisions could be made easily.
        Mr PM is caught by the situation, but his gentlemanness and ultra-patience let the situation go forward. Sure, the bond bank robbery was an issue, but the robbery which was scored as 100 times more since 2008 is being totally neglected by LOCAL press why ? WHO IS behind local press is being revealed by the kind acts.

    Is this another cunning plan of the Hooper?
    Maybe hopper wants to send the Admiral to sea in the corroded Russian floating metal hoping it will take him to the bottom of the sea. In the meantime he would have made some commissions, buried the admiral deep in the sea, ……………….. while keeping his promise no war hero will be sent to gallows.

    It is indeed a cunning plan!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    This is getting more and more confusing.
    .
    How can we possibly keep track of all this?
    .
    Let me pass on to readers an explanation of three names which may not be central to this report, but will – early – prevent confusion.
    .
    This Roshan Goonetileke’s father was also Air force Commander. It is mentioned here:
    .
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roshan_Goonetileke
    .
    That “5th Commander of the Sri Lanka Air Force, late Air Chief Marshal Harry Goonetileke” was a man I met once in circumstances that made it very clear to me that he had always been an honest man.
    .
    After the father and son had both retired there was this man who was Air Force Commander:
    .
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kolitha_Gunathilake
    .
    I knew Kolitha Gunathilake well enough when he was a schoolboy, but not since then.
    .
    I’ve always been averse to associating with military types, and I now find it shocking to find that the Sirisena whom I elected as President is hob-nobbing with these guys; and Ranil Wickremasinghe with Gotabaya.
    .
    Does nobody in the country matter except military men and Professional Politicians who never retire when they say that they get disillusioned with the Party that they belong to?
    .
    There are. I forgot that Doctors exploit every which way, and that Tuition Masters ensure that the growing generations only get certifications of literacy without the ability to think.
    .
    Let me repeat, though, that all this skullduggery is fairly recent. Harry Goonetileke was a decent, honest man – seemed rather over-weight!

      Dear Mr Sinhala Man,

      During my short visit paid to SL few weeks ago, I was unable to come and see you in B wella.
      At least next time, I have to plan it well. Whenever I get there, I become very tired. I dont want to travel by public transport.
      .
      Besides, you had shared that you would not stay in B wella house right ? Instead somewhere in Maharagama. However, I had no proper Internet where I had been for that 10 days either.
      :
      Keep up your good work !. Some teachers shared me that you were their English Instructor then.

        Dear “desperateasnoother”,
        .
        I’m sorry that we missed each other. If it was a few weeks ago that you were here, moving around must have been difficult. My movements between unremarkable Maharagama and still scenic Bandarawela are fairly flexible. Let me know when you’re coming next, and I’ll be there to show you around.
        .
        Internet charges have been coming down drastically. There appears to be a price-cutting war on among the providers. As for public transport, yes, it is always tiring, but all of that is functioning – if one compares that with the chaos in government.
        .
        The situation reflected in these latest stories is really scary, don’t you think. However, I hope you return soon enough.

          Thanks SM, at least few of you make my day hopeful.
          :

          I was so fed up of being caught by traffic in CMBO. Once I took a public transport and got lagged 2 hours to reach Pettah from Kiribathgoda. Can you imagine ?
          .
          And the sound exposure in pvt buses and on the street were beyond healthy decible levels. Asked why they would not stand against it, was answered by – ” that is expected by many of the customers but understanble that you guys would not”:
          .
          I also paid a visit to Kaluthara Temple because I liked the place very much.
          :
          Sure, I will not miss you next time travelling to SL ( very likely in Jan 2020).
          .
          Please do whatever you could do to block Rajapakshe s return. That would not bring improvement in Slanken society. I dont mind any others becoming future leaders but no Rajaakshes. Deterioration of society is a plan of Rajaakshe family. Their hoodwinking tactics are solely focused on their political survival. But how long they would be successful in misleading the rank and file is a big question dont you think so Mr ?

            As for bus travel: when one actually lives in a place, one learns how to cope with problems. Tomorrow I want to get to Bandarawela. If I don’t stay up too late writing things, there is an SLTB Nuwara-eliya bus that starts from Maharagama at 6.30 a.m. This is a feature of bus travel that you probably were not privy to. Innovation to avoid the worst traffic jams. Strange bus routes for people familiar with itineraries. For Rs 300/= I get to within half a mile of home by 12.25p.m. Quite quick, but one does get shaken about a bit.
            .
            I listen to Mozart; you can imagine how little I like “baila decibels”. However, note this:

            http://english.lankapuvath.lk/2018/08/17/sltb-in-the-black-for-first-time/
            .
            Really! I was looking for a blog which said that subsidies for state buses exceed those for our Airline, but all links seem to say that the CTB of old now makes a profit. Google for the information yourself!
            .
            So, who knows, there may be a turn around in the country as a whole. However, on the subject of traffic jams, we have them near every large town about the time schools are out, indicating far too many school kids being transported out of their villages into towns.
            .
            ‘Schoolkids gravitate to town schools because the “tuition classes” are there.’ contradicts my traffic jam theory, doesn’t it?
            .
            I told you that I can’t explain everything!

    There are two categories of folks who directly stood to gain as a result of the LTTE.
    a] Some sections of the Tamil Diaspora who found themselves in world-wide destinations which they never expected in their wildest dreams.
    b]
    Folks like Jayadewa Karannagoda [ no Ge name though] and James Goonetileke[has a Ge name].
    Both distinguished themselves in Mass Murder and Corruption, so by the doctrine of our President they are war heroes and should be honoured!
    Both had enriched themselves thanks to the LTTE.

    Election of Maithripala Sirisena is an unmitigated disaster to the country and people. For the last 2 years, he is acting like a lunatic. Only a lunatic will dismiss a Prime Minister who had the support of the majority in Parliament. Only a lunatic will prorogue Parliament and late dissolve parliament and fix elections. How on earth the people are tolerating his idiosyncrasies?

    Native Vedda: Your observation “Hopper” and connected with “corroded Russian Floating metal”… Your guess seems to me correct; because this “Hopper” got his “Chief of Staff” along with another “goon” a Chairman of a Public Corporation, to collect a cool 200 million on the sale of “Scrap Metal” from a dismantled sugar factory and both were caught while counting a part of the “Loot” in a car park. This “Hopper” has an unquenchable thirst for “Corroded Metal” and “Scrap”.

    Poor Field Marshall Ponny must be gutted..

    But thanks to Dr Ranil’s Easter Cover UP PSC., Ponny has got a golden opportunity to be a Mover & Shaker in the next Parliament.

    The way Ponny grills those “I saw Nothing I heard Nothing blokes,” of Dr Ranil’s Defence and Border Protection Team , gives me the impression that Ponny will be well sought after in the next Parliament.

    BTW UNP seems to be in tatters with the Prez Election round the Corner.

    After Galleon Ravi went for Keselwatta Kids Jugular on behalf of Dr Ranil, the whole Catholic Minister and MP Clans in Yahapalanaya have joined hands to protect Keselwatta Kid just ..like the LTTE supporters did in Nanthikadal. to protect Pirahaparan.

    The latest is that What’s his name Catholic Junior Minister from the Bible Belt threatening the President and the Former Police Minister of the UNP and demanding that they apologize to the Dalits in the UNP for visiting Nanadasena in the Night.

    I didn’t know that Dalits in the Bible Belt are in the the UNP..

    I was commissioned as a volunteer office in the SLAF in the late 70s, and sent to Diyatalawa for training. Harry Goonetilleke was the air force commander at that time.

    Every morning, we would see about 6/8 officer cadets going through their drills in the parade ground. Among them were two sons of Harry Goonetilleke, Roshan and his brother (he died in the Eelam war later).

    Can you believe this? Harry G. put both his son’s in the same cadet officer intake! Brazen favoritism.

      Sarath P:
      The facts you speak to speak for themselves.

      Harry Goonetilleke has been lionized by the local media and that corrupt son of his, who as President of the Sri Lanka Rugby Football Union did nothing to punish an SLAF player who discharged an ASSAULT WEAPON an assault weapon at Nittawela against the Kandy Sports Club when it was imperative that Kandy lose so that the Navy team, with all three of the junior Rajapaksa siblings in its ranks, win the Clifford Cup.

      A letter addressed from the Kandy Sports Club addressed to Mr. Roshan Gonnetilleke, as president of the Sri Lanka Rugby Football Union has not been even acknowledged up to now, many years later!

      That is but a small example of the code of conduct that Roshan Goonetilleke practiced. The That code cannot be adequately described in a publication such as this. I would take volumes to detail his behaviour.

      Also, there is one journalist who is a reputed opponent of the current regime’s corruption who has gone out of her way to defend Karannagoda and it would be interesting to hear exactly why she has.

      Sri Lanka truly seems beyond redemption which is confirmed by the fact that, under the guise of defending indigenous culture and Buddhism, individuals committing the most heinous of crimes crimes are lionised and kept beyond the reach of the criminal code!

    The question Sinhala Buddhists ask is ‘What the hell the Minister of Buddhist Affairs doing while ‘Para Demalu’ and ‘Para Muslims’ are destroying Sinhala Buddhist heritage in the North East of the country?’
    These ‘Para’ people in the land of Native Sinhalayo and Vedda Eththo put up Kovils and Mosques on top of ancient Buddhist shrines.
    The TNA MPs and some of their instigated supporters have created a rumpus, protesting and disturbing the duties of the Archeological Department officers who visited the ancient Buddhist Vihara, that has been declared an Archeological site, in Kinniya. This was done by staging a claim that this site belongs to Hindus and what is there in that site is a Hindu Kovil.
    Similarly, when it was very clear that the Buddhist heritage is evident at Guru Kande, a Kovil had been built within the premises making it difficult to hold Buddhist religious rites such as Katina Pooja in the premises.
    In another instance it is distressing to note that these ‘other religionist’ have come to control the Okanda Shrine at Panama that was patronized by the Buddhist in the area till recently. The Hindus in the area have encroached this site.
    The ruins at Kuragala suggest that it was a predominant Buddhist monastery. The total archaeological landscape of Kuragala has been changed with the erection of a mosque. Several burials of Islamic community in the archaeological site reveal how some encroachers have changed this place over the years.
    Muhudu Maha Vihara is a Buddhist temple situated at Pottuvil in Eastern Province of Sri Lanka. This temple is built in Anuradapura era by king Kaavantissa. Muslims have encroached the temple land and has vandalized archeological sites.
    How can we have ‘Sanhidiyawa’ with this kind of creatures with animalistic behavior?

    Blind Moda Eagle, will you please tell us when did your Buddhism, Buddhsit temples and Buddhist Sinhala come to this Eelam? You are blind alright but history cant be blind man. Cooked up history is not real history. Mahavamsa is basically a fantasy novel written in 500CE and basically all based on Hindusim and sanskrit and Dravida tales. The inebriated thero was talking of an imaginary Lion Borne Vijayan and Naga Dravida hindu Dutte Gamani as a sinhala king. No one heard of Sinhalas or Buddhism at that time Moda Eagle? Now even Ravana, Shiva worshipping, veena playing, highly intellectual hero (or Zero for abducting married women and got thrashed by husbands) as a Sinhala? Come on Moda Eagle, you are entitled for some degree of fantasy or wild imagination under alcohol but yet it has a limit. Anything akin to sinhala is as late as 800 CE. Even then no Sinhala but only tamil Brahmi even on buddhist places of worship. Now you clown talking of Buddha sinhala heritage in the N &E? This is why I told you to go in front of a mirror, drop your sarama and have a good look at the tragic history. Moda Eagle, I have told you so many times that Buddhsim came from India, it was religion at one time among Dravidians too in south india and Eelam too. Then Buddhsim mostly vanished with original hinduism came to its place. In the south of Eelam presently Buddhsim is being systematically destroyed by people like Moda Blind alias HLD, other stupid racists and some Buddhist monks. Of course for southerns politician it is a handy weapon to hoodwink the unthinking and unthinkable masses that are ready to swallow any BS. The worst curse for Buddhas Buddhism is the concept of misleading Sinhala Buddhism.

Any right thinking person will realise that just working under this illiterate, liar, gamarala president itself is a terrible disqualification to hold any position in public or private sector, not even good to be a hangman for Gamaralas welikade prison. I even wonder how this man goes around the world 24 x 7 on various pretexts and what and waht nonsense he would be uttering.

    Edwin, you can take a horse to water but cannot make it to drink. This mindset affects not only you but several others who keep their senses permanently shut. Who cares to whom you vote, because all know what the outcome is. Whoever comes there will be stooges and crooks taking up positions, then cheat the gullible people, plunder the wealth, abuse the system, revenge taking, occasional racial riots when they are stuck, buddhist clergy running riot and even worrying about sinhala buddhist women’s sexual intercourse frequency and fertility, Buddhsim being disgraced while building pansalas led by rabid monks in Tamil areas and the life goes on. But who cares. Fools will remain as fools, crooks will remain as crooks and total exploitation will go on unabated. But presto, thank god, we have Buddhism and sinhala nationalism (better called racism) to carry on in power.

      You got a point there.

But most of all what one needs is the support of a Tamil Terrorist Organization.

Feel sorry for your sorry, and only feel sorry for yourself. Even Deva Lokas are going to close down for those blind fools. Kuveni’s curse alright.

          I am not an expert like you in the art of toilet cleaning. Buy why do the Tamils have to lick white asses to stay there?
