Sirisena Wants Sri Lankan Refugees To Return Home

President Maithripala Sirisena last night extended an open invitation to all Sri Lankans, who went to Germany as refugees, to return back to Sri Lanka and enjoy the freedom the country offers to all its communities.

MaithripalaAddressing a media briefing soon after his discussion with Germany’s Chancellor Dr. Angela Merkel, Sirisena said that all Sri Lankans who left the country as refugees due to the conflict can now return back to Sri Lanka and enjoy the freedom and also live freely.

He also extended his appreciation to the German Government for the assistance extended to Sri Lanka in carrying out development work over the past few decades.

Addressing the press briefing, the Chancellor said that she was happy with the democratic changes which took place in Sri Lanka under the leadership of President Sirisena and expressed her satisfaction over establishing peace in the country.

The German Chancellor also pledged every possible assistance for the future plans of Sri Lanka.

Meanwhile Sri Lankan citizens who sought political asylum abroad are being victimized on their return to the country in response to an invitation given by President Maithripala Sirisena, Attorney-at-Law Senaka Perera said two weeks ago.

He said, Tamil activist Puniyamoorthy Sasikaran, a resident of Batticaloa, had been arrested on 20, January by the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) upon arrival at Katunayake on flight UL#319. Sasikaran fled the country by boat for Australia four years ago due to death threats and being followed by white vans during the former Mahinda Rajapaksa Government.

      You should invite HLD Mahindapala back home if you really like him. Poor man is suffering from loneliness, alienation, attention deficit due to living in a no man’s land.

      If you gave him 24/7/52 attention he would stop ridiculing himself.

      sach, somass, Nuisance, Wee Thamihz Shiva Sankaran Sarma Menon, ….. can take turn to entertain him.

      Sumane, that’s what you paid to go to Australia. Over there, you are nothing but scum. You cannot speak English properly, have black skin and the best you can ever aim for is to be mistaken for an Aborigine. How sad for you, no one knows you are an aryan. If only they knew! This is why you spend your time on the CT website full of bile and hate. You are a Dalit. You are a Pariah. Have a good look in the mirror you pathetic pile of I don’t know what. No one is Sri Lanka uses the word Dalit. Only you, because that’s what you are in Australia. Right of the bottom of the pile. That’s why you hate Tamils. They are, what you are in Australia. You want to perpetuate hatred and violence in your homeland, because you do not and never will fit Australia. What do you have to say to that mate ? You are no one’s mate.

        At LankanfromLanka,

        Yes, and you are the personification of all Sri Lankans living in Sri Lanka, foul mouthed, and eveil. I am no friend of Sumanasekara but when I see such vitriol coming from a person in Sri Lanka I am not surprised. Look at what comes out of the Prime Ministers mouth – worse still Sarath Fonseka’s vitriol available for the whole world to see on You Tube. When Westerners read such vitriol coming out in the public media, they form a mental picture of who Sri Lankans are. You can respond with cynicism but when you respond with such hatred, it appears that you are rotting from the insides.

        // have black skin and the best you can ever aim for is to be mistaken for an Aborigine.//

        There were too many Sinhalese who hopped on the boat and reached Australia in the recent past.

        Previosuly, many Sinhelse landed here because of their relationship with colonial left-overs, aka Burghers. There was a White Australian policy, but the Sinhalese people, who got married to Burghers sponsored their brothers, sisters, BILs, SILs, MILs, FILs, cousins,….. Some of them are are ‘fair-skinned’ as Sanatha Jayasuriya and Aravinda de Silva.

    Most people flew there because of White Van fear.
    Now Gota’s and Mahinda’s power completely vanished away.

    Mr. President and Mr.Prime Minister have establishes peaceful environment for those want to enjoy true freedom and democracy.

    Even now so called king, princes and henchmen frequently visit prison and make statements in commissions.

    No any impeachment for Chief Justice.

    Chief Justice Sri Pavan freely perform his duties and discharge his responsibilities.

    So called King and all those who were around him is now in a desperate situation.

    The God has started to punish them slowly.

    This is the first time in our history, former Executive President and his siblings and sons are brought to justice, commissions and incarcerated even for few days.

    Young prince Yoshitha who lavishly enjoyed his life and did ride horses in Nuwara Eliya is in prison and experiencing the reality which they harshly gave others with out any reason.

    I always thank the almighty God.
    Ultimately Our God has started to give them a suitable doze which were asking for many years.

    Some blind and deaf Sinhalese Buddhists are silent but many people know what Mahinda and his siblings (specially Gotabaya) and his sons and all henchmen such as BURUWANSA and so on have done when Mahinda was in power.

    Village people are innocent.
    But wise and intelligent people in every ethnic community know very well what Mahinda did along with his henchmen.

    Gotabaya and his wife have kept some solders life slaves for there daily requirements.

    Do not forget that.

    We always salute Mr. Maithreepala and Mr. Ranil Wickramasinghe because you save our country…..you saved our all people from Mahinda and his henchmen.

    God Bless you both.

        You may go on attack MY3 and RW, but nothing can stop them. They would shape up all the debries left by Rajapakshe thugs. Last night I heard mr 10% percent saying that he wonders how the current regime ironed out huge conflict that MR had with IC. Meaning he accepted that current govt is capapble of handling IC issues.

    Even Srisena knows that no one is going to trust any verbal promise of Singhalese – so many verbal crackers in the past – once a political solution in writing in place and endorsed by the west (real human beings), then older generation of diaspora will come back with money – even normal pension is a big sum of money in srilanka, the 3td world.

    Ballah

    In a democratic society ‘majority wins’. If you call 6.2 millions majority, ‘idiots’, obviously you do not have any place in this democratic mother Lanka and you are a traitor. You should leave the mother Lanka leaving space for democraticphillic refugees to return home. Cuba and North Korea which are run by dictatorship rather than democracy is more suitable for you. That is the least you can do to mother Lanka.

      AJ – that is not an intelingt comment.

      You know very well that Ballah is a Mahinda supporter.

      Mahinda, whose family controlled 70% of the formal budget.

      Not a single person was allowed to question their authority.

      They had Mihin Lanka to have an airlines in their name.

      They built a port (where bouders blocked the ariival of the ships) and airport (where peacocks blocked the movement of planes) in a wrong place (which is many many kms away from the ‘civilisation’).

      They looted eveything, elephant tusks, museums, underground tresures, …

      They borrowed money for the government at credit card interest rates and took big chink for themselves.

      The princes hires flight attendants for them to have entertainment.

      Oh my God, the list is toooo long.

      Democracy is a crazy concept for them. The election happened because Basil thought they would win (so, they could claim to be a democratic government). You would remember the company that Mahinda kept! Russia, China, Iran and Libya….? Mahinda even took his crown prince to introduce to the Iranian President as ‘one who wll take over from me’.

      You are expecting Ballah to understand democracy? His writing shows how much he is suffering from the loss of Mahinda neary 13 months ago. Please understand his feelings.

    ”Return Home” is aslogan to get money from Germany. Back home no investigation of murders, no economic development, no political solution, ONLY army rule isokayed for the North. Just one of the meanest leaders Sri Lanka is blessed with.

    Good call, but not many would take up the invitation. They went to Germany under tough situations and worked very hard to succeed in their careers and bring up families in that country.

    Now how will they uproot themselves ?

    Perspective

    ” A Refugee is a person who has been forced to leave his/her country in order to escape war, persecution, or natural disaster. ”

    Charity begins at home Mr. President , thank you for your humility and openness. Lets build a progressive nation never to give a Sri Lankan a reason to be a refugee. Sri Lanka is home to all Sri Lankans equally including those who left the mother land for reasons close to their hearts and reasons others need not judge.

    Mr. President if you think non-Sri Lankan refuguees have a home in Sri Lanka , invite them to enjoy what Sri Lanka has to offer, love , care and a home. Be the messenger and the custodian of true peace and human dignity . Make that your legacy Mr. President.

      ” Lets build a progressive nation never to give a Sri Lankan a reason to be a refugee.”

      In order to build a progressive nation, one should stop carrying MR’s b***s, own up war crime charges, dig out truth, apologize, …………… and liberate Buddhism from Sinhala/Buddhists.

      “Mr. President if you think non-Sri Lankan refuguees have a home in Sri Lanka , invite them to enjoy what Sri Lanka has to offer, love , care and a home”

      I agree with first part of your request to president however I am not sure about the second part,”love , care and a home”.

      We gave home to 900 exiled criminals (and lost our island), that was our tradition. However the newly constructed traditions which started in 1948 (or well before), which made more than million people stateless over night, then the rest were subjected to Sinhala only language policy (including Sinhalese and Buddhists) and periodic patriotic riots, and a permanent state of war unleashed on people on 5th April 1971 ……………….

      Yet you believe in giving love, care and a home.
