    Shani Abeysekara

Former Criminal Investigation Department (CID) Director SSP (Rtd) Shani Abeysekera filed a petition in Supreme Court on Friday (18), seeking to prevent his arrest in connection with a set of fresh charges the Gotabaya Rajapaksa administration wants to bring against him.

The 36-page petition is a bombshell exposé about investigations Abeysekera led into the Easter Sunday mastermind and his terror cell prior to the bombings in April 2019, and reinforces previous suspicions voiced by no less than the Head of Sri Lanka’s Catholic Church about a political hand behind the terror attacks that killed 269 people.

In his application before the country’s highest court, the decorated CID officer claims that an attempt was being made to falsely implicate him by alleging that he had been derelict in his duties during the investigation into the National Thowheed Jama’aath (NTJ) and the mastermind of the Easter Sunday attack, M.H.M. Zahran.

SSP Abeysekera’s petition to Supreme Court charges that there was an attempt to wrongfully arrest and detain him under the Prevention of Terrorism Act (PTA). Abeysekera claims the B report submitted to a magistrate in connection with this investigation into his conduct of the NTJ probe was prepared for “collateral purposes” and tainted with malice and abuse of process. The intention was to “get revenge” from Abeysekera because he had led probes into “many high-profile cases during the period from 2015 to 2019 which included the investigations against “persons of high ranks” in the present regime, the police and armed forces.

The attempt to throw the super sleuth back into remand stemmed from the Government’s bitterness over Abeysekera’s investigations into the Easter Sunday terror attacks in 2019, and what his probes into grave human rights crimes such as the murder of Lasantha Wickrematunge and enforced disappearance of Prageeth Ekneligoda revealed about President Gotabaya Rajapaksa’s involvement in these and other crimes, Colombo Telegraph learns. As CID Director in 2019, Abeysekera’s swift work in the immediate aftermath of the bombings led to the identification of the bombers and their movements within hours of the attack. SSP Abeysekera’s investigations have revealed the shadowy hand of state intelligence services (SIS) in the terror attacks and exposed the Gotabaya Rajapaksa regime to the wrath of the Catholic church and its leadership over the Government’s failure to bring the perpetrators to justice.

The cold war between the Government and the Catholic church has led to Cardinal Malcolm Ranjith boycotting the Independence Day event in Colombo and calling off February 4 services at the All Saints Church in Borella. The Church has openly accused the Government of President Gotabaya Rajapaksa and his Intelligence Services of being behind a conspiracy to attack churches before the 2019 presidential elections.

The former CID Director is asking the Supreme Court to intervene to prevent the imminent infringement of his fundamental rights. Less than a year ago, the Court of Appeal tore the police case against Shani Abeysekera to pieces in a bail order, calling the charges a sham designed to ‘prejudice and harm’ the star criminal investigator and former CID Chief by the ‘backers of convicted murderers.”

Colombo Telegraph learns that the CID has stepped up efforts to arrest Abeysekera and detain him under the draconian PTA, to deflect blame from President Gotabaya Rajapaksa who was swept to office in 2019 promising justice for victims of the Easter terror attacks.

Instead the former CID Chief’s court filings tell a damning story of how his department (CID) faced obstruction, obfuscation and interference in their investigations against Zahran and the NTJ from as far back as November 2018. The petition before the Supreme Court reveals that interference came from within the State Intelligence Service, then headed by Maithripala Sirisena loyalist SDIG Nilantha Jayawardane and the Directorate of Military Intelligence.

Explosive Exposés:

I. Failed Taj bomber Jamil & Military Intelligence

For over a year now speculation has been rife about the odd dalliance between the military intelligence and failed Taj Samudra bomber Jamil, who later detonated his explosive device inside a small motel in Dehiwala. In his testimony before the Presidential Commission investigating the Easter Sunday attacks, former IGP Pujith Jayasundara claimed that Jamil had been in touch with an intelligence officer shortly before he detonated his bomb in Dehiwala on April 21, 2019.

Shani Abeysekera’s petition before the Supreme Court makes the following observations regarding Jamil, the CID’s manhunt for him and the facts that make it obvious he was a person known to the Military Intelligence all along.

“The Petitioner further states that later it was revealed that Military Intelligence officers have firstly visited Jamil’s mother’s house in Wellampitiya to find the whereabouts of Jamil, and after that proceeded to the house of Jamil in Dematagoda before the blast in Tropical Inn occurred, without ever informing the CID who were engaged in the investigation of M.C.M. Saharan and NTJ at the time being. In the said circumstances, it can be reasonably inferred that despite repeated requests by the CID for assistance in locating M.C.M. Saharan, military officers attached to DMI had prior knowledge of Abdul Lathif Jamil’s identity, his role in the NTJ and his whereabouts, but for reasons yet unknown they have decided not to share
this information with the CID to help apprehend Saharan and dismantle the NTJ.

II. Sonic-Sonic and SIS link

The former CID Chief’s filings in court reveal hitherto unpublicised evidence linking the mysterious code-name “Sonic-Sonic” that has been the subject of much speculation, directly to the State Intelligence Service, then led by Sirisena stooge cop, SDIG Nilantha Jayawardane. Abeysekera’s investigations into the SIM card used by the individual known as “Sonic-Sonic” was based on the apprehension of NTJ associate known as “Podi Zaharan” from Matale. His investigations led to a female traffic police officer in the Colombo City Division, who confessed that she had given this SIM card to her lover, another sub-inspector of police attached to the State Intelligence Service (SIS).

The petition details the events that transpired as follows:

“The Petitioner states that through the investigations conducted after the Easter Attacks the CID was able to find out about a person called “Podi Saharan” alias “Matale Saharan” who lived in Matale, who had connections with NTJ. The Petitioner further states that the said “Podi Saharan” was arrested by Police Officers attached to Matale Police station and later on the same day he was again arrested by the CID.

The Petitioner states that while the said “Podi Saharan” was being interrogated by the CID it was transpired that he had communicated with a person called “Sonic Sonic”, thereafter the CID was able to locate the sim of the said “Sonic Sonic” through an IP address. The Petitioner states that upon said revelation the CID investigated the details pertaining to SIM cards and IP addresses used by the said “Sonic Sonic”.

“The Petitioner states that according to the investigations it was revealed that the SIM which was used by “Sonic Sonic” has been obtained under the name of a policewoman sergeant attached to Colombo City Traffic Division. The Petitioner states that consequently, the CID interrogated the said woman police sergeant and she revealed that she has given the said SIM card to one Sub Inspector Bandara who is attached to the SIS, whom she claimed to have an affair with.

“The Petitioner states that the CID proceeded to interrogate said SI Bandara and at that time DIG SIS Sampath Liyanage contacted the Petitioner and informed him to not to proceed with the said interrogation as the involvement of SI Bandara with Podi Saharan is a part of covert operation which is directly connected to the national security. However, the Petitioner refused to follow the request of said DIG and managed to get a statement, but the said Sub Inspector Bandara took the same stand in his statement and refused to divulge any information with regard to his connection with the said “Podi Saharan”.

III. Vavunathivu (Batticaloa) cop killings – November 2018

Two ex-LTTE cadres were initially arrested in connection with the murder of two police officers in Vavunathivu, Batticoloa about six months before the Easter Sunday bombings. Following the terror attacks in April 2019, the revolvers belonging to the cops were found in the possession of a NTJ suspect linked to Zaharan’s terror cell, leading to the conclusion that Zaharan and the NTJ had been behind the murders.

Shani Abeysekera’s fundamental rights petition in court details the herculean efforts made by the Directorate of Military Intelligence to pin the blame for these cop killings on the LTTE and deflect attention away from the NTJ or its affiliates. The CID even suspected that the DMI and the SIS had colluded to plant evidence in order to lead police officers to the ex-LTTE cadres rather than to the real culprits. The details revealed by Abeysekera in court tie directly into assertions by former Terrorist Investigation Division DIG Nalaka Silva, who was ordered by SDIG Nilantha Jayawardane’s SIS to stop his investigations into the NTJ and Zaharan in 2018.

At the time of the Vavunathivu cop killings, DIG Nalaka Silva, who was very much on Zaharan’s trail by that time, was behind bars on false charges of plotting to kill President Maithripala Sirisena. The man responsible for making those claims public which led to Nalaka Silva’s six month long imprisonment, was Namal Kumara, an ex military intelligence officer and employee of Avant Garde Maritime Services, run by Gotabaya Rajapaksa loyalist, Nissanka Senadhipathi.

The petition states the following regarding the cop-killings in Vavunathivu, Batticaloa in 2018:

“The Petitioner states that later, the investigations conducted after the Easter Sunday attacks it was revealed that the said Ajanthan and the ex LTTE member is not responsible for the murder of police officers and that the said Ajanthan and the ex-LTTE member had been falsely framed for the murder of police officers by the intelligence services (DMI and SIS). The Petitioner further states that the DMI and SIS are suspected to have conspired to plant the motorcycle jacket in a school bag, to mislead CID investigations on the murder of two police officers in to prevent them from discovering the real assailants involved in the murder. The Petitioner further states that due to the confusions caused by the SIS and DMI, CID officers discovered only after the attacks of Easter Sunday, that the murder of the two officers was committed by the NTJ terror group led by M.C.M Saharan, which is more fully described in the following paragraphs.”

IV: The Intelligence Officer directly linked to Zaharan

Shani Abeysekera’s petition also reveals that the Director of Military Intelligence directly intervened to remove an individual being interrogated by the CID for his consistent communications with Zahran, based on evidence discovered by the US Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI), which was collaborating with the CID in the first days after the bombings.

The petition details the interference as follows:

“The Petitioner states that after the Easter Sunday Attacks, the CID officers became aware through the American Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) about an Internet Protocol (IP) address belonging to an individual who had been in frequent communication with M.C.M. Saharan which was discovered by analyzing computers, mobile devices and internet accounts tied to Easter attackers. The Petitioner states that the CID began interrogating the said individual who refused to give any information about his connection to M.C.M. Saharan or to NTJ. The Petitioner further states that thereafter, the Ministry of Defense through the then DMI Director Brigadier Chula Kodithuwakku prevented the CID from detaining the said individual asserting that that the activities of the said individual were classified as national security reasons as his activities were part of a secret military intelligence operation”

    This shows what is really behind the fake patriotism of the Rajapaksas.
    Our police and military are far too corrupt and politicised to conduct a proper investigation. Only a probe supervised by foreign officers can get to the bottom of this sordid affair.

      The police is always more corrupt than the military anywhere.
      They deal with everyday life and there is more temptation.
      Our army has been politicized and appointments to top spots are based on loyalties. The rank and file are different.
      However, the Army conducts only internal inquiries.
      It is the cops and the courts that worry us.

      Do not compare Shani Abeysekera an honest gentlemen with Dr. Shafie. In the case of ex IGP and ex defence secretary, the court said that prosecution has failed to prove beyond reasonable doubt. No one blamed these two for either originating or facilitating the bombing. Therefore the case filed was wrong and naturally it collapsed. Hemasiri soon after bombing said that “We thought it will be a small one”. Does this not prove that he knew about it and did not take action to stop it. Pujitha soon after bombing said that Sirisena wanted him to take the responsibility, and for that he will get diplomatic posting in return. Does this not show that he had knowledge about it. We can forgive both, because as public servants to keep their posts intact, they would have not gone against Sirisena and others in the national security council, who wanted it to happen. Just because courts have acquitted them, it does not mean that they are totally innocent.

        Nor does it prove that the culprits are all gone to the next world!!
        If MY3 warned PJ and offered Diplomatic posting for a false ‘Mea Culpa’, why was it offered??
        What prompted him to make PJ the ‘Fall Guy?’
        That’s Promotion of, “Perversion of Cause of Justice” (PCJ), by Citizen no 1, prime persona to uphold constitution

        DEMONISING IT!!
        What is happening to him?
        Why no action for PCJ??
        MY3 was assured of 2nd term possibility and support by Pohottuwa, which caused the Thirupathy and Singapore trip to occasion and let the bombing happen with 250+ deaths, enable an election???!!
        Thereafter, went back on the 2nd term assurance, to gain the gilded job for Pohottuwa??!
        The present animosity between the SLPP and SLFP?? Now biding the time waiting election!!!
        MY3 qualifies for a Mass Murder charge and assisting a terrorist act to happen under PTA, before abolishing or amending.
        Humanitarian Lawyer MR may fly in private jet to Geneva to plead case on behalf of ‘Kalyana Mithrayo’ and ‘Appa’ Crime partner 2018/10, MY3 – good combination!! “Jadiyata Moodiya”? Is it not??

    We have always known that SIS was used in many of the shady activities such as Lasantha’s, Eknaligodas and Tajudeens murders.
    Gota was the direct administrator of this unit at that time.
    Similarly, it was known that Gota and Mara continued playing a hidden hand in many government agencies after their defeat in 2015.
    When they failed at the 2018 October attempt to oust Ranil, thanks to the support of the citizens, the only option remaining was to cause fear psychosis in the public to achieve their aim.
    The above article ties all the loose ends and establishes a motive behind the Easter bombing.
    We can see how the hidden hand staged the Easter event to topple the incumbent government.
    The devilish strategy lead to so many innocent lives being sacrificed while many many more were deceived into voting for the very same family who cunningly orchestrated the entire ordeal.

    These mentioned sonic sonic and SIS Silla and all others involved need the love and mercy of God in this life before it ends up with permanent non negotiable karmic justice. All escape from prisons like the ones we have here. We do not need to build any more prisons when the citizens are already imprisoned whether they know it or not. Some overhead highways leading out of prisons are relevant. The truth is that political governments of nations of this world are corrupt and off course serving mammon god , while there is a different increasing kingdom government from the throne of King Jesus which is righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy spirit. Rom.14,17 He is the prince of peace, but also a man of war against the devil, the defeated liar and deceiver.

    There is a greater responsibility in the hands of judges of Sri Lanka to protect the nation from those who manipulated Easter Bombing for their political coup. The current regime returned to power after lies over lies and fabrication of false information to the people after failing to topple the previous government by conducting the Easter Bombing. So, the current regime is not entitled to govern this nation lawfully. Judges are there to judge not based on the popularity at the time of election or the law books manipulated to suits their needs but the real evidence of truth came out day by day from how they tried to use that to come out or released from all the crimes and court cases with out proper judicial procedures. The country need your conscience and true dedication and bravery to face this challenge. The sudden release of all the accused innocents or political victims are now granted bail is clearly tells that their arrests were linked to their election plot and now they put the country into bankruptcy. It is sad that our military that mandated to serve for the people fall in to the trap of Rajapaksa family and become partners of the political coup and bring this country into a hell.

    Oh, I remember Namal Kumara.
    From the very beginning I said that Namal Kumara was a fake character whose script was written by Pohottuwa. I also said that for some reasons, Pohottuwa wanted to win Maithri over, and that is why they fabricated an assassination threat to Maithri’s life. I think this was what led Maithri to appoint Mahinda as the PM in late 2018. Pohottuwa’s plan was to form a Rajapaksa government in January 2019. As I said before, if the Rajapaksas were in power in 2019, the Easter Sunday attack orchestrated by you-know-who could have ended up destroying Buddhist temples and massacring Buddhist monks/devotees. Then, there would have been racial riots instigated by the Rajapaksas themselves that Sri Lanka has never seen before which would have later used as an excuse for an emergence of a Muslim terrorist outfit.
    Well, Shani Abeysekera’s statement is also somewhat misleading. He talks about being victimized by the Rajapaksas, but, in actual terms, I think he is trying to implicate Maithri in the Muslim terrorist attack.
    The Reverend Archbishop’s accusations are against Maithri, not against Muslim terrorists!!! Catholic pastors were miraculously missing at churches on that fateful day. Why?

      Champa,
      “Catholic pastors were miraculously missing at churches on that fateful day. Why?”
      There is no such thing as a Catholic “pastor”. They are priests.
      Do you have any evidence for that? Were you in any church on Easter Sunday , to see an Easter service being conducted without a “pastor”?
      Who are you trying to protect with such ignorance?

        There is no evidence whatsoever that Catholic pastors/priests were present at churches on the day of the Easter Sunday attack. Even after bomb blasts they did not visit churches. Why?
        Ordinary residents in Katuwapitiya and suburbs who heard the blast had run to the church. But, not Catholic pastors/priests.
        One father said that his three children died in his hands as he waited for an ambulance for one and a half hours. There were no Catholic pastors/priests to help victims even after the blast. It is pretty obvious that they stayed away from churches. Why? Did they have prior knowledge that there would be a series of blasts? Where was the Reverend Archbishop of Colombo on that day? I checked info about previous years. There were dozens of Catholic pastors/priests at Easter Sunday church sermons before and after 2019, but not in 2019.
        It was revealed that the Police have informed all politicians about a possible Muslim terrorist attack on Easter Sunday and they have in turn informed some selected people. Nobody was bothered to warn innocent Catholic devotees. Now, they all, including the Reverend Archbishop of Colombo shed crocodile tears!!

          Hi Champa,
          “There were no Catholic pastors/priests to help victims even after the blast.”
          You make this, without malice which we realise.
          However, think you may have missed a point in your deduction
          This statement is baseless.
          Were you physically present at the devastated churches at the time when the blast happened?.
          No, you could not and did not!!
          How did you arrive at this deduction?
          Please try your best to “envision the scenario” in the devastated churches!
          Most explosion in churches happened in the front pews!!!
          So, the priests would have been in the opposite side of the worshippers when explosion happened.
          If that is the case the “destructed buildings” in between the Priests and the worshippers!!
          Such case impeding the priests, if all of them were even uninjured, which may not be the case!!!
          TO ERR IS HUMAN, TO FORGIVE IS DIVINE!!!

            Oh, it is so easy to prove that none of the Catholic pastors/priests were present at the church at the time of the Easter Sunday Attack. NOT A SINGLE Catholic pastor/priest or the Reverend Archbishop of Colombo was EYE WITNESS TO ANY OF THE THREE CHURCH ATTACKS.
            I have no love for Maithri, but, it is pretty obvious that the Rajapaksa-backed Reverend Archbishop of Colombo is all out to pit Sinhalese Buddhists and the Catholic Church against each other to DELAY the court case against Muslim terrorists!
            I am sure, the Reverend Archbishop of Colombo and Catholic pastors/priests have a GOOD EXPLANATION for their absence at the church on Easter Sunday-2019. Did they have prior knowledge that there would be series of bomb blasts at their own churches? YES, Shehan Malaka Gamage, the young Catholic activist (?) who was arrested by the government and released on bail, haughtily says, [edited out]

      “Catholic pastors were miraculously missing at churches on that fateful day. Why?”
      No such thing as ‘Pastors’, in Catholicism to start with!! Some other religion or denomination???!!
      They are Catholic PRIESTS ordained by the Catholic Church, if I may help to correct the misnomer!!!
      Surprised; Load of BS!!
      How did you expect a Catholic Church Service on Easter Sunday (or any Sunday or week day) to be performed??
      An ordained priest should officiate and conduct service. Service couldn’t be performed otherwise!
      No buts and If’s! Full stop. Period.
      Some tend to open their mouths and display their total and absolute ignorance of life’s realities!!!
      When not in possession of facts, it is better to keep the Gab closed!!
      Then others cannot gauge once ignorance or intelligence!!!

    This is nothing but a lot of hot air :) and those who wants to give a free pass to Islamic extremism and failures of Yahapalanaya now trying to pin the blame elsewhere – so anyway let’s now take up these “allegations” one by one –
    The opposition politicians gave a sinister turn to one Sonic – Sonic saying he was in Malayasia and tried to involve ISIS in the attack ( in spite of the fact Zaharan already pledged allegiance via his pre – attack video and such attacks without the direct involvement of ISIS happened world over) – Now we find this is just a local sim registered to a SIS officer not DMI higher up as we were led to believe. Indeed opposition MPs said Matale Zaharan too was apprehended in Malayasia – but now we see this is not the case – and whatever involvement of Podi Zaharan was marginal enough not to show up in PCoI report as a major culprit having links with ISIS ( that honor goes to late Jameel) – intelligence operations against suspected extremists is not unknown – remember Indian intelligence contact Abu Hind was instrumental in getting credible info on attacks to SIS

    One wanders how independent is the supreme Court of the land. The citizens expect them to be impartial and do the right thing. On the other hand there will be undue pressure put on the judiciary to bend the law to accommodate their paymasters.

    I feel they will do the right thing they have no choice
    Nonetheless the ex CID chief Shani A has suffered enough when he was arrested and denied bail . God forbid no one wants him go through that kind of a treatment again.

      I can name a bigger democracy where the Supreme Court judges are political appointees. The last President took advantage of the death of a senior judge with liberal inclinations to fill the vacancy with a conservative a matter of weeks before his departure as President.

          Manila,
          In the US, not just judges, but even local police chiefs are political appointees or elected. But, generally, they follow the law and not their political inclinations. Maybe because there really isn’t much difference between Democrats and Republicans.

              Not just edcuation system Mahila, it has lot to do with cultural background.
              .
              I agree with SORYSENA s statement going back to 2018.
              .
              He said, whoever whatever being said and done, srilanken popuplation would not see it beyond – focusing on the facts and figures of anything. We experience this in day today life.
              :
              Just go and see within your circles in the country, regardless of their degree level education, if anyone would be asked to go and lick the bo tree for the sake of some sort of blessings, none of them would rethink but emulate the other.
              :
              The very same is the case with them, regarding their eating culture. No matter gastritis would kill them, but they keep eating – spicy and legumes on one go. No matter diabetes levels are the highest in the region, they would not stop eating RUWANWALISAEYA sized of a plate of rice. Some eat 3 times a day going beyond the level of any the chinese. Paradigm shift of their thinking nature could give a life line to this nation. Not anything else. Above all, pinguttharayas should be punished or replaced with GOOD BUDDHA PUTHRAYAS that are appropriate to be in that place.

    To prove culpability in any crime, evidence has to be available. After nearly three years of play-acting, much of the required evidence would have been diluted or destroyed, to suit the agenda of the perpetrators of this crime against humanity. Even if credible and honorable police officers now came forward, without corroborating evidence, no court (even international) would pass judgment and produce a verdict where punishments can be decided on the perpetrators. Justice delayed is justice denied..

    Nilantha Jayawardena and Nissanka Senathipathi must be arrested immediately. This investigation cannot and should not be done by SL police, it should be done by an independent foreign power. Let’s all join hands in demanding this public international investigation as there are many foreigners who also died in the attack which appears to be orchestrated by the supporters of the present government.

    Please refer to page 31 paragraph 75 (a), (b), (c) & (d) of the Petition. Would anyone agree reasonably well with what is stated to justify to “Arrest” the Petitioner for “FAILING” to stop the “Easter Sunday” attack? It is nothing but “Laughable” even to think of an “Arrest” of the petitioner on those ” Flimsy/”Framed” allegations. Also please note the “Track Records” of the “1st & 2nd” Respondents. Hope the Judges of the SC too would learn of the “Calibre” of the Police High Command.

    Compare these allegations with those that were leveled against the ex-Secretary of the Defense Ministry- Mr, Hemasiri Fernando, and the ex-IGP Mr, Pujitha Jayasundara (in total 1700 charges) both of whom are now “Nidoskota Nidhas”-“Acquitted of all charges and Freed”.

    No wonder, when this entire Law Enforcement has been placed under a “JOKER”, the rest of the “Team” has to play to his “Tune”.

    We cannot look at these things with bias and hatred.

    All over the world intelligence agencies attempt to infiltrate terrorist groups by giving them money and other assistance. The terrorists also know this and try to outsmart the spies . They may accept the money given to them but do not necessarily follow the instructions of the intelligence agencies( one time India funded Tamil terrorists-the LTTE ended up killing the Indian PM !) Can you argue that Indian spy agencies planned to kill their own PM ?

    To me this suggestion of a highly complicated coup, where some Muslim extremists carried out a suicide attack on 5 star hotels and churches at the instigation of a Sinhalese master mind is far too fantastic.

    Going by other social and economic activities , people in this country can only manage the most ordinary and mediocre achievements. To suggest that they have carried out this most bizarre and subtle operation ( without getting caught) is to imagine talents and skills not even America , Russia or Israel have managed.

    If America had such talent they would get Chinese to self-destruct ! If Russia had such capabilities they will have Ukrainian suicide bombers destroying Ukraine ! If Israel had such powers there would be no Arab countries standing !

      “To suggest that they have carried out this most bizarre and subtle operation ( without getting caught) is to imagine talents and skills not even America , Russia or Israel have managed.”
      There you go again!
      I wouldn’t know if you were around in 1959, when a couple of Buddhist monks, and a female Minister among others, conspired to kill the Prime Minister. Is that not bizarre enough for you?
      The fact is that the present conspirators HAVE got caught.

      deepthi silva: You said: “All over the world intelligence agencies attempt to infiltrate terrorist groups by giving them money”. True and accepted.

      But do you know that Intelligence Agencies also “SET UP” terrorist groups and outfits to carry out attacks? In this regard, the CIA is well known among many other Intelligence Agencies of other countries. Think of some of the most dreaded “Terrorist” outfits that existed and are still in operation in many countries. If you go into “Inner Working” and analyze the “Financial” support those organizations receive, you will be amazed at what levels those have grown. Space is limited for me to spell out those activities and connected “Financiers”.

      I think, Sri Lanka Governments Intelligence Agencies too are not out of that cloudy operations, when you analyze the “Easter Sunday Attack” on Hotels and Churches. This petition by Mr. Abeysekera is an eye-opener.

    Mahinda Dynasty Came to power by Planning and Plotting murders and the link with Underworld groups and Drug Kings, The family memnbers have two faces. One with Lotus flower r in Buddhist Vihara pausing the he is strong Buddhist and the face to cat against te preaching of Gautama Buddha. Gota is involved in many murders. He ran away to US hiding in CA US. He planning the Aril attack when he was defense secretary as the Zahiran’s click was paid by defense Ministry It was well planned attacked Everyone knows who the mastermind. He became hero among the Sinhalese uneducated rural people after the Eelam war. The war was won with the help of India, Pakistan China, US and many other countries numbering 14. There is proof. How can Sri Lankan Army win war with LTTE after fighting for more than 30 years. It was incidents such as MGR’s death. 9/11 attack, Indira; s death and finally the murder of Rajiv which was planned by Chandrasamy and another Samy . LTTE leader sacrificed his entire family?
    Being CID chief knew that he was working a group of criminals. Judiciary is NOT independent.

      Good morning.
      Yes, of course a farfetched idea or dream I would say.
      However, in a country, when Lottery choice is the chosen format of appointing Judges to dispense Jurisprudence, anything could happen?
      2 such ‘Pot luck’ appointees stand out as “sore thumb”, in an otherwise almost ‘serene surroundings’, in the history of the supreme court of Sri Lanka!!

    Shani Abeysekera is our Sherlock Holms !

    Plato, did you come to this deduction after listening to Shani’s conversations with that Caddish Ranjan Ramanayake ? ( I think Ranjan should not have been jailed , but nevertheless he remains a socially reprehensive figure ) I think they were discussing about influencing a judge.

    Elementary ?

      deepthi silva: There is no doubt that Shani A has been an efficient CID officer. Yet I agree that his telephone conversation with Ranjan cannot be accepted from an officer like that of Shani A.

      In that perspective, you must understand and reason out why Public Officers behave in that fashion. In our “Public Service” and particularly in the “Higher Ranks” the officers have developed a “Habit” of “Obliging” politicians and it has become a “Culture” built into that service. If not, do you think even a President’s Secretary colludes with his “Boss” to rob Rs. 600 m as divulged in that “Sil Redi” case? Even can you imagine the IGP “Promising” a politician saying: “Yes Sir, Yes Sir, I will recall the file” to be heard by the public. Of course, this “Culture” must be eradicated and the “Public Service” must be “Re-Claimed” to set standards of High Status.
