SLPP In Crisis, Gota Applies To Go Overseas

The writ application filed in the Court of Appeal challenging the legal validity of Gotabaya Rajapaksa’s Sri Lankan citizenship has thrown a spanner in the works of his presidential campaign, with the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna in crisis talks to find an alternative in the event the former Defence Secretary is disqualified from contesting the November 16th election.

On Monday night party leaders in the SLPP led alliance met at Opposition Leader Mahinda Rajapaksa’s Wijerama Mawatha residence for talks about how the party will face the latest legal challenge posed on Gotabaya Rajapaksa’s candidacy. Sources told Colombo Telegraph that the SLPP was mulling fielding former Speaker Chamal Rajapaksa in Gotabaya’s stead, if the court ruling goes against the former Defence Secretary.

Gotabaya Rajapaksa

Civil Society Activists Gamini Viyangoda and Chandraguptha Thenuwara filed the writ application last Friday, contesting Rajapaksa’s dual citizenship certificated allegedly issued on 21 November 2005 as a legally valid document. The petition argues that a person who is not a Sri Lankan citizen cannot contest to be president of Sri Lanka.

The petition which will be heard by a three judge bench of the Court of Appeal led by President of the Court Justice Yasantha Kodagoda

The two other judges set to hear the petition are Justices Arjuna Obeysekera and Mahinda Samayawardane. The petitioners are seeking to suspend the operation of Rajapaksa’s dual citizenship certificate since they submit it has been obtained illegally. The petition is also seeking to stop Gotabaya Rajapaksa or his agents from claiming he is a citizen of Sri Lanka. If upheld the petition could disqualify Rajapaksa from contesting in the 16 November presidential election.

The writ application is based on startling revelations in a CID B report filed at the Colombo Chief Magistrate’s Court on 26 September (Thursday) which contained nearly a hundred pages of annexed documents supporting the agency’s findings. The CID told the Chief Magistrate that Gotabaya Rajapaksa’s dual citizenship file was not available at any one of the ministries or departments it should have been in. Statements from the Department of Immigration and Ministry of Defence said the files were not in their position. The CID has been unable to trace an application for dual citizenship filed by Gotabaya Rajapaksa in 2005.

However Colombo Telegraph learns that all dual citizenship files are in the custody of the Department of Immigration and Emigration, even though Gotabaya Rajapaksa’s entire file is missing.

Making matters worse Rajapaksa’s dual citizenship certificate number 15305 is assigned to another individual, the CID investigation found.

The SLPP scrambling to defend Rajapaksa after the petition was fixed for support on Wednesday and Thursday at the Court of Appeal released the former Defence Secretary’s purported Dual Citizenship certificate on Twitter yesterday. The disclosure led to even more questions.

In October 2016 Gotabaya Rajapaksa submitted his dual citizenship certificate to the Registration of Persons Department when he was applying for a new National ID. The certificate submitted by Rajapaksa himself as part of his NIC application bears the certificate number 15305A. However the certificate published on Twitter by SLPP politico Kanchana Wijesekera bore the number 15305. It is unclear which certificate has been doctored to include or delete the “A”.

Amid all the uncertainty Gotabaya Rajapaksa’s lawyers today applied for his passport that is currently in the custody of the Permanent High Court at Bar in Colombo where he is on trial for criminal misappropriation of Rs 33.9 million to build a memorial for his parents in Hambantota. His lawyers told court that Rajapaksa needed his passport returned to seek medical treatment in Singapore from 9th to 13th October.

However the Attorney General told court in reply to the motion by Rajapaksa’s lawyers that they had no objections to the 1st accused seeking to go overseas but would require his counsel to present the relevant documentation to court before the order was considered. Judges at the permanent high court put off giving an order until 3rd October.

Political circles were buzzing with speculation that Rajapaksa was trying to get his passport out of the court in order to ensure he could rush out of the country in the event the Court of Appeal ruling goes against him this week. An adverse ruling would end his presidential hopes since nominations must be filed by 7th October. Rajapaksa may have sought to keep his passport handy in order to leave the country in a rush if necessary, sources told Colombo Telegraph, especially since the petition was seeking to suspend the operation of his travel document and NIC as part of the interim relief prayed for. “The eleventh hour court case has really set the cat among the pigeons in the SLPP camp and the Gotabaya campaign team,” a politically well placed source told Colombo Telegraph. “If it goes well, maybe Gotabaya will be president. If it goes badly, he will be a man without a country,” the source added.

    The “BUZZ” word among “Rajapakse Mafia” is to be “READY” with an alternative candidate. This is not “GOSSIP”; because last Sunday, Chamal and Wife hosted a “Dinner” for nearly 1000 invitees at the Colombo Convention Centre, where Gota was also seen mingling with the crowd. This “Mafia Family” will not give up that easily. If one fails, another is “Ready”; but NEVER anyone from outside. But there is another question for the “NEXT” – Chamal. He is supposed to be the one who submitted the “Household Registration” form in 2005, including the name of Gotabaya as a “Resident” within the premises that belongs to Chamal. It is from that information of the form, Gota got registered as a “Voter” and supposed to have voted in the election of 2005, while being a “US Citizen”. Now all those records are also on “Wanted List” and the Returning Officer of Matara District has been directed to produce the documents. Wheels within Wheels. Now the “Astrologers” will have to “Re-assess” and see whether it is “Raja Yoga” Vs “Senasuru Erashtaka” that has come to play. My “Prediction” is: If “Sensuras” sitting on that “Bench” (in Courts) work in accordance with “Their” brains without any fear, “Senasuru Erashtakaya” will WIN over “Raja Yoga”. Let us watch.

            In Sri Lanka flag, the colours are not of equal size and the symbol denotes only one community. In contrast the Indian flag has colours of equal size and the symbol is a common one that of Asoka where Buddhists only are 1% or less. Singapore flag does not have any affiliation though Chinese are 75%. UK flag is a mixture of English, Scottish and Irish flags in equal proportion. Ideally Sri Lanka should have followed the example set by India with three colours of equal size and the symbol that of the god of the Veddahs the original people viz VEL (spear) and peacock.

        Ajith the funny thing is that however foolish the Singhala Buddhists are, it is the Tamils who always lose out isn’t it?
        It makes one wonder whether the Tamils are bloody idiots themselves or ‘genetically weak’ as that racist Cholan would say.

    It may be relevant to timely mention that the I/E Dept.is such a corrupt place as it has been revealed in the media that it is in this Dept. that State Employees are the richest. Missing Files is a rampant method adopted by the mafia with Overseas
    Embassies being blamed in cases that where the applicant used them.
    Since April 2015 when Dual Citizenship was re-activated, some 38,000 have been
    granted dual citizenship. The Citizenship Div. in an RTI revealed that approx. 10% of the applicants were from the Tamil community. The going rate then was just 350 USD. Imagine just 50 % of the 10% bribing (38000 -3800 -1900 -350 usd x Rs.150) amounts to Rs. 99 million!! The CIABOC was tipped in the early stages but they did not act, as some unholy connection existed.

      Silva,

      would that ever be possible, if putting the stop to the war in his brother first term?.
      .
      War was a brutal and their luck, it ceased during MR s first term not necessarily by their own pragamtic politics, but various factors convered to cease the relay race of 30 year civil war.
      :
      Any countries, where such wars related brutalties were there, press mixed up all these in favour of them leaving the facts about the war, aside. Had late Minister Kadirgamar failed getting LTTErs baned on rich soils across the world, is any kin do war cessation would ever be a reality ? NEVER.
      .
      Not just Europe, but India, America, Australia, Canada where considerable portions of Tamil refugees are scattered, banned LTTE criminal activities within their soils. Was this an unestimable act ?

      Since then, even if Rajakashes would RAPE a virgin keeping her and her kith and kin, in GALLE FACE open air, the uneducated masses would MAKE every effort to make their mind saying something else, just ignoring the gravity of the crime.
      Press today is very lethargic when cross questioning Rajakshes. Why ?
      Not MR alone but all other in that family and within their ciricles committed HIGH crimes, but painted as they were in favour of SRILANKES… more over the sums as commissions collected from those state transactions were buried forever. No doucmented at all.If the bugger woudl have been, patriotic, he could use them for the benefit of the DESTIITUE in this country?

    Some of the hilarious comments from our Lankan retards heard in past two days. Yes Rajapaksas (MR,BR, GR ) are ALL rogues but not Chamal. We do not want US to do business but it is OK for China to own land,businesses, illegally finance campaign and influence our elections. Yes Gotha is a cheat so what ?? others too. Gotha may have run away during war,given up his citizenship and switched allegiance to US (citizen) but he will save us from US. If not Gotha it will be Chamal, if not we still have Shiranee and Namal , if we run out of , these choices we still have their wives,(newly married), spouses and girl friends.(why not house maids and other helpers ???) This is an average Lankan voter for you.

    Gota was in Jaffna working under Maj. General Denzil Kobbekaduwa. When General was killed by a land mine at Kayts on August 1992. This coward got scared and managed to get transfer away from operation duties to Kotalawala Defence Academy with the help of then defence minister Ranjan Wijeratne. When Minister Wijeratne was also killed by the LTTE at Dickmans rd. heart of Colombo, he deserted the army (with his wife’s advise) abandon Mother Lanka and ran away to USA (safe haven) worked in a Indian grocery stores (Seven 11) as cashier. He came back as a brave man when his brother became president. What a brave man he is? Then illegally obtained dual citizenship November 2005 and became defense secretary. Looted millions of money, illegally took those money to USA. Now his entire family living in USA lavishly. You people supporting him should ask this patriotic brave man, where is his family? Gota is trying same the same gimmick what he did in 90s (running away).

    Mahinda, bringing in will help to keep the Presidency within the larger Rajapaksa family but not necessarily the Mahinda Rajapaksa family. That’s not what MR wants. He wants to keep it for Namal. So my advice to MR is that SLPP consider putting Shiranthi s their candidate. She is a good lady.

      But SHirarnthi has no education or leadership skills. She is just like PITTU GEDIYA. if anyone would pinch her would be exploded on the spot. Shicky micky aunty can only spend state funds for her hang bags. I heard, she had bought hundreds of hang bag , each cost 1 lack in rupees as gifts to her business queens that helped her to run that gold business in colombo. Shiranthi has no background or education, she is even lower than INCUMBENT president s wife, balawathi. Whoever comes forward to represent them will go down that deep this time, so that we can see light at the end of the tunnel in terms of BPs and WPs of that family becoming prisoners. Latter should have long happened if this nation to be moved forward.

        Those who shot 600 Sinhala Policemen have been given cabinet posts in Sri Lanka.

        Yes what goes round comes round and that is why war criminal Shavendra Silva has been appointed as army commander.

        Eagle Eye,

        “What will happen to those who recruited children as soldiers?”

        Interesting question for the Paras. Another question for the Paras.

        “What will happen to those who recruited 7-year old children as child monks (Samaneras), robbing them of their childhood, treated them in their backs, using Para-Sinhala Para-“Buddhism” as justification, and let them grow up as saffron-clad adult monks, who frequently go berserk, and sometimes even shoot Prime Ministers?

        Is that your point Sinhala Buddhist terrorist must be able to freely celebrate the annual event of pogorams, without it being returned to them?

        Instead of a Malay. IQ 79, like you designating the Malabaries, let it be done by the DNA tests.
        All the Negombo Tamils and Cinnamon peelers are 100% South Indians. Now they are the Singala Govigama Rulers.

    well said Ajith. One of the best comments. I applaud you. Our Sinhala modaya’s cannot emancipate from insanity as long as insanity keeps the modayas, shackled.

    We, on Colombo Telegraph, are really having fun at the expense of Gota, aren’t we?
    .
    It will be good for us to remember the millions who will always vote for Gota, out of family habit. It’s almost impossible to shake them.
    .
    There’s much hard work ahead of us.

      Yes indeed, SM, greetings from Berlin for this day.

      Keep up your good work Mr.
      I am bit worried, NK being not given enough support by people today. His idea to bring a new constitution is the best ever I consider is the timeworthy.

    In politics if you want to defeat your opponent, the best way to achieve it is via a democratic contest where the voters are convinced through your campaign and give the voters the opportunity to defeat your opponent. All other methods create “political martyrs” that will come back to bite you. On that score, Gamini Viyangoda and Chandraguptha Thenuvara (and their handlers) are morons who don’t understand the long game.

      And ballige puthas of your nature would buy all these.
      Mahinda Meeharaka robbed the bankd 100 times more by 2015.
      Who revealed this none other than, incumbent president ( please check it the press release from President in December 2018).
      :
      And Nidan Hora is stammered story Rajakshes ballige puthas to score more. But a man who grew up in UK in his adolesence would never want to fall that level as is the case with Balige putha rajakashes sons. Remember ? We can send you some sort of medicine…. Eagle eye, if you cant now see it right. You as early octagenarian, should be well aware of th efacts.
      Else, not even WORMs under earth will welcome in the days come. Please be away from your hatreds, you the racists from DOWN under.

    It is really sad and disappointing to see how in a democracy in the modern day they are trying to keep the power in the family. They have made a great fortune over the years and it is too much to give up without a fight. However once MR is no longer active whole project will crumble as all the other Rajapakshas are known to be parasites.
    Why the common man is blind to these facts baffles me.

      Dear De Silva,
      public opinion is stolen by them through Hiru TV and Derana TV. For some reasons, there are hidden hands that abuse both being above the media laws if available in the bananarepulic. I wonder, if the TV channels reacted that way in UK, would they ever let them to practise the kind of media further ? No. In Germany where I am, or in Italy as well, if falsehoods would become headline news or and biased news become as such, there are laws to stand against the media owners. Why such steps are not yet set in SRILANKEN systems is my dillemal question.
      Can anybody of you please add me some on this topic please?
      We are watching the way how Rajakshe and his men are interviewed by the press, in the same time, UNP, JVP or others face the same press men. Mostly, Rajapsakehs slip away from main questions as if the press men are threatened if they would go agains tthem. ::: meaning, the perception is being made by Rajaakshes in a fine manner so that public opition become into the conditioned mindset of the average.
      Average people are the target of them or any cruel politicians.
      Mr PM has raised this also in Parliament, but MEDIA fraudsters keep ignoring him. But in the same time, public is being not servied with truths. Just they get misled from dawn to dusk.
      Please look at all these finely you guys can do something, if you live in SL, I am out of the country and live long in EUrope. I just add mine, to your comments thinking and anticipating a greater change in the system.
      If truths would take ground, Rajaapkshes will get easily marginalized in the country.
      Thank you for all that really have grasphed this so far.

    PLAN B

    Sajith cannot avoid the PM question and expect thus far “undecided” voters to vote for him. Given the current chaos RW brand seems to be poisonous for the UNP. Even without Gota, Pohottuwa might get in with SLFP support. Basil might be even a better candidate.

    RW might join Gota and have a drink or two with A. Mehendran in Singapore. They all look after each other. Politics in SL is just an opportunity to make money and feed ego.

    Goata to go abroad for medical check up ? He seems quite well and energetic at the hustings for his election.

    Should not the Court ask why this check up cannot be done in our dear land. A Medical Team should declare that this can only be done abroad. The he can go. He is refusing to face the Courts like a man, which he should do if he not guilty as he claims.

    We should not vote for any of these stale rogue parties. I think Mahesh Senanayake should be given a chance this time. This Country needs a firm straightforward and soft dictatorship to discipline the country and stop all bribery and corruption. One of the most important first things is to give the people a clean independent judiciary. People should be disciplined by way of large fines. A good garbage
    disposal system is also necessary in addition to reviving of the economy etc. etc.

    So it comes to pass that all the morons who were cock sure that Gotler was no longer a US citizen, That he was backed by the USA, that the blind astrologer proclaimed him as the winner (probably induced into making false predictions), that he will win no matter what he he he what a soup you idiots have created. All facebook and Whatsup addicted buffoons who don’t know the real news is or anything grounded in relality serve you right. His dual citizenship is fake obtained by stealth when no minister or secretary for the department of immigration was in place. Using an invalid ID which expired the day he bacame a US citizen. Voting illegally in Sri Lankan elections using this expired ID. The number of crimes add up to a serious possibility of jail time! Forget running for president He He He. Karma is a you know what.

    Eagle, the inside informer of Rajapaksa Family, please tell us without keeping our poor nation anymore in an “animated suspension” , Who Is it Going to Be, Gotha? Chamal ?? Shiranee ??? Namal ???? or is it going to be on of their newly married wives/spouses, girl friends/ex girl friends or last but least Lankan Manmohan, AKA, Cabraaaaal . Eagle, just a thought. I guess this is what “KARMA” is , for a guy who once said there is no place for minorities (non SB) in Lanka, is today pleading to public (see press meet) to believe that he is a Lankan citizen.
