Sirisena Plays Same Old Tune Of ‘I Didn’t Know’ In A Bid To Save Himself

Following the damning revelations that came to light at the inaugural session of the Parliamentary Select Committee meeting probing Easter Attacks yesterday, Sirisena as usual seems to have been busy thinking of ways to steer clear of blame.

His answer to save himself from any culpability based on information revealed yesterday, was to issue a bizarre tweet from his official Twitter account @MaithripalaS this morning.

The tweet published in Sinhala translates to:

“As discussions of the Security Council was leaked to media via unofficial channels, the structure was changed and National Security Committee was established and convened bi weekly. On 19/4/8, at the meeting convened for Senior Police officials, no information was relayed to me regarding the 21st attacks.
I reject any reports that claim I was made aware of the information.”

The tweet was met with confusion as no mention was made about a senior police officials’ meeting on April 8, at the hearings yesterday. In fact, it is unclear if any Senior Police officials could have made themselves available for a meeting on April 8th as the security apparatus seems to have been busy with the visit of Indian Defense Secretary, Sanjay Mitra which fell from April 6-8.

Furthermore, even if Sirisena was not briefed about impending threat of Easter Attacks on April 8, it still doesn’t stop him from being held accountable for failing to hold a single National Security Council meeting since February 19 until the date of the attacks.

    If Zaharan did not die from his bombings even he would have become a self proclaimed prominent Muslim writer in this forum. And all the other minority rif-rafs would have loved his writings. LOL!!

      Yes, exactly. And there are likes of Zaharan already writing here , popular with CT readers. There are some bloggers as well resembling Zaharan , with extremist ideologies, totally against Sinhala – Buddhist nation .

        Sinhalese ‘Buddhists’ are a majority who have been forcing all other groups to develop a minority complex, through their intolerance and xenophobia.
        Call themselves Buddhists? That’s a joke

          Well said Lankan.
          I wonder how many ‘Buddhists’, including the sangha, know about real Buddhism.

    Ranil prosecuted the forces intelligence gathering and managing crowd and handed over to Police. It looks Pujitha Jayasundara for some reason became a dictator. He did not resign from his post even after the President’s request. I heard President thinks that Pujitha Jayasundara was told, by president, if you tell the truth you would be allowed back in the seat. Pujitha Jayasundara, instead, submitted a Fundamental rights Case to the supreme court. It is like Declaring first amendment in the USA system.
    some how president took over the Police department February I suppose but Police did not inform the Military or forces about the on coming Terrorist attack. So, now p[resident became a BAD PERSON here,.
    Here, other factors need to be counted. Saudi Arabia had informed the govt. It looks Hemasiri Fernando did not inform the PResident. Besides, they bring a stupid excuse saying that Sri lanka did not have laws to arrest those trained in Syria. but, People say, Mawanella and Vanatha villu are two such incidences that Triggered the arrest. BUT RANIL LIED TO THE PUBLIC saying HE WOULD ask who ever to talk maximum action on them which RANIL DID NOT.

    MS is a guy who rejected the voting, when voting was called twice to object against MR’s Govt. He just said “I don’t agree” with this, like a Dad telling off his son. Now he is playing the same trump card to say that he was not informed about the attack.

    I am wondering whether the International community wanted Srilanka to stay quiet and whether Zaharan themselves were the target.
    “The Trump administration might focus more narrowly than did earlier administrations on addressing a shorter list of threats that directly affect U.S. interests in the Asia-Pacific. These chiefly include a rising China, a nuclear North Korea, and a lurking Islamic State in Southeast Asia. “

    What is 19/4/8?.

    Is it the date according to the Sinhla Buddhist Calender of Maithripala Sirisena ?.

    Or Is it the code of the Police Intelligence Services of Pujitha Jayasundara, which Dr Ranil established after castrating the real Military Intelligence Service and jailing its core Officers .

    What use is there for the society a man of this calibre, this type of lunatics abound among the so called politicians in our country. Only solution is to get rid of all 225+1.Time has come for the Voters to dictate to the prospective candidates by a manifesto of their own as proposed by Mr. Nagananda . This is not the time to dilly dally with the future of our people, in fact the future has come to pass. People must kick out these parasites lock stock and barrel, they are a law unto themselves. Let us not entertain second thoughts about their honesty and decency. We have seen enough of their tomfoolery. People now know for sure who is who.

    It is not a crime for not holding Security Council Meetings for two months.
    The crime here is not taking any action even after information of bomb attacks was shared.
    Not only the President, the Prime Minister who was alerted one hour before the attack (source: NDTV) did not take any action to thwart it.
    One gentleman, whose wife and 3 children were died on his hands says that the ambulance came only after 1 1/2 hours!!!! It is evident that there had been some foul play.
    Then people were shocked to see the exhaustive details of Muslims terrorists through the attachment of the letter that was widely circulated in the social media.
    If the C/NI has done his duty, this attachment would not have been in public domain.
    The C/NI laments about not enjoying certain powers that he enjoyed with the previous government, which is a hilarious remark by an intelligence officer. If he has no clue as to why, the obvious reason is the mistrust.
    Moreover, the C/NI should take the full responsibility of the letter circulated.
    If the C/NI “does not have powers to execute action”, then it is his duty to recommend such actions in writing to the Defence Minister/the President.
    What actions did C/NI recommend to the President? Did he do that at all?
    The President should let the C/NI go!
    I don’t see any reason to keep him in the current position.
    Both the President and the Prime Minister should also go!
    Unfortunately, Sinhalese have no idea who should take over the country as they are fed up with the current set of politicians and their political parties.
    Therefore, we will have to have some patience until the right man who could unite all Sinhalese, emerges.

    Chief of intelligence services worked under whose instructions.I heard under PM’s lawyer’s instructions.Even Intelligence service chief had to meet president with this lawyer I heard. As such this information might have gone to PM first.though he denied it. Conspiracy may be to impeach president. Ultimate results was lost of lives over 250 and more than 500 casualties.Muslim community may be over rejoiced as their youths were able to please their so called Almighty Allah or Ballah. That may be the reason why Islamic extremist like Amarasiri make very bad comment here on president of republic of sri lanka to please UNP top brass for their favor in pleasing their so called Allah or Ballah. This is very good experience to General public. Please boycott All Muslim business. Money they earn out of your hard earned veges will be utilized to killed you & your loved ones . That is the nature of All Islamist.

    Remember the golden words of our Thaatha, ” On the day of Avuduru they (Hemasiri and Pujitha)came with betel leaves to get blessings and still did not tell me”. So Thaatha started his Avuduru by telling more lies.

    Well, the only thing that I could think of why MS was not informed is that he should be in this country to be informed and not galavanting to other countries with his family and relations. He is more away from Sri lanka. I think that he knows that there is no way that he is going to be elected again as a President, hence, make hay while the sun shines.
