Sri Lanka’s 42nd Chief Justice Does Gotabaya’s Dirty Work – Blatantly Violates The Constitution!

Former Chief Justice Asoka De Silva yesterday filed a petition on behalf of Gotabaya Rajapaksa before the District Court of the Western division of Central California, requesting a dismissal of Ahimsa Wickrematunge’s civil action against his pay master.

Asoka de Silva

The petition was filed by Silva on June 27, 2019 where he very clearly states he was a Supreme Court Judge since August 2001 and thereafter became the 42nd Chief Justice of Sri Lanka in June, 2009, retiring in May, 2011.

The former CJ has blatantly violated the Constitution of Sri Lanka, by filing a petition on behalf of Gotabaya as it has been expressly prohibited in Article 110 (3) of the Constitution for any Supreme Court Judge or a Judge who held office in the Court of Appeal to ‘appear, plead, act or practise’ in any court, tribunal or institution as an Attorney-At-Law without the written consent of the President.

Daughter of slain Editor Lasantha Wickremetunge filed action against Gotabaya Rajapaksa in California on April 7, 2019 requesting a Jury trial and compensation for the assaination of her father.

This bold move prompted and encouraged many victims who suffered during the ruthless Rajapaksa regime to come forward and file action against then Defense Secretary and current presidential hopeful Gotabaya.

        The politics of distraction from US crimes in Sri Lanka evident here. Gota is a US citizen and Bondscam Ranil their puppet and both are responsible for letting the Easter attacks organized to set up a US base to fight CIA-IS terrorism in Lanka.

        CT Eds. Please do not only focus on Gota but also Ranil. Gota and Ranil are 2 sides of the US coin to delude the masses, set up military bases and loot Lanka.

        US puppet Bondscam Ranil should be impeached for signing ACSA without an end date and that ACSA rejected
        BTW What is the JVP doing in bed with Ranil and the Americans?!

      Asoka De Silva,

      Asoka of the Forest, it is all right being a Para- in the land of Native Veddah Aethho, even though all Paras are illegal.

      Now , you have violated even the Para constitution, so that you can lick the ass of a killer.

      Why didn’t you recommend an American lawyer to file on behalf of you? Could not find any?

      The Para-Sinhala, even when they become Supreme Court judges, have no ethics, not even the limited Para constitution ethics. Clearly they were influenced by the 2,500 Para-Sinhala “civilization “, influenced by the Para-Sinhala “Buddhism “, that is an insult to Pristine Buddhism and to the Buddha.
      Ask any Tamil. Ask any Muslim as well. The Para monks and the Para- Sinhala “Buddhists “ run amok. The President violates the constitution. The former Chief Justice violates the constitution.

      They must be Para-Sinhala Para-Buddhists with Para names like De Silva, Asoka etc to fool the others.

      Do you have an answer to the question asked by Americans and others, “If Buddhism preaches nonviolence, why is there so much, religious, ethnic and political violence, including the participation by the Monks in Sri Lanka today “.

      Is the answer, Para-Sinhala Para-“Buddhism”, exemplified by the Mahawansa, and the low mean IQ of 79?

        Amarasiri,
        You used research conducted by Ranaweera, Lanka; Kaewsutthi, Supannee; Win Tun, Aung; Boonyarit, Hathaichanoke; Poolsuwan, Samerchai; Lertrit, Patcharee (2014). “Mitochondrial DNA history of Sri Lankan ethnic people: Their relations within the island and with the Indian subcontinental populations”. Journal of Human Genetics. 59(1): 28–36 to say “Mitochondrial DNA genetics of Para-Sinhala, Para-Tamils and Native Veddah Aethho CONCLUSIVELY showed that only the Veddah Aethho are natives and the Para-Sinhala and Para-Tamils are indeed Paras.”

        The conclusion of the research is:
        “No definite association of the Sinhalese with any specific ethnic or linguistic groups of India was, however, detected in this study; thus, their exact immediate origin on the mainland remains yet to be confirmed.”
        This shows either you did not read the article completely or as a Demala propagandist you deliberately ignored the conclusion.

        Prof. Raj Somadeva has confirmed with scientific evidences that origin of Sinhalayo is in this island. He says DNA of Sinhalayo are closer to Vedda Eththo, not to Hindians. There are no evidences to support the idea that Demalu lived in this island and therefore the claim ‘Traditional Homeland’ is going down the drain.
        If you can understand Sinhala, please watch:

          Yes, Amarasiri listened to his presentation. Does he still thinks that the Sun goes around the Earth?

          Archeological perspectives are very inaccurate, and not precise.

          Just, read the Nature Genetics paper several times. If you do not understand get hold of a geneticist or molecular biologist.

          Looks like Para-Sinhala, even the so-called Para- Professors have a hard time understanding modern human genetics and migrations. They are blinded in trying to prove that the Para-Sinhala were the first Natives in the Land of Native Veddah Aethho, when there is conclusive, mitochondrial DNA evidence that clearly shows that the Native Veddah Aethho are the original natives, and that the Para-Sinhala and Para-Tamils are Paras and recent arrivals. Even the Dreepawansa, Mahawansa and Kata Katha, for whatever it is worth, also claim the the Sinhala are Paras. A few Native Veddah Aethho women being raped or taken as wives, does not make Para-Sinhala the original Natives.

          The Sinhala/Buddhists have a huge history manufacturing industry.
          For instance Paulus Edward Pieris Deraniyagala discovered Leo leo sinhaleyus (Sri Lankan Lion- made out of just two teeth found in Kuruvita in 1939) The beginning of Sinha cult, and the evidence for the origin Sinhala/Buddhist race(?).

          The Sinhala/Buddhist race myth manufacturers refuse to publish their supposed crucial path breaking findings if in fact they are new discoveries in English, (a language of international communication, knowledge transfer, medium of inquiry, .for quality international peer review … ) fearing exposure, alway whisper in Sinhala among themselves, and no other languages.

          It’s a good idea to assure the Sinhala/Buddhist fraudulent history makers to keep their lies within the family, no need for external scrutiny, avoiding unnecessary hazard in intellectually tiresome exercises, ………….. Some of the archeologists have transformed themselves into nothing more than resource persons for the Sinhala/Buddhist racist national agenda, including rewriting new history only in Sinhala medium.

          It is a shame this lecture has not been published in any of the internationally renowned journals. Isn’t is safe to keep it that way?

          If this trend and practices continue Sinhalese will find themselves without true history of their past in about hundred years time.
          I am not sure this Sinhala/Buddhist professor is an expert on genetic studies, the latest tool in the armoury of historians.

          Eagle Eye,

          Thanks for the link.

          What Prof. Raj Somadeva presentation, is an attempt to link the Migrations, Colonization, and genetics of Native Veddah Aethho, to the Para-Sinhala and Para-Tamils. Unfortunately, all his evidence is the evidence of the ancestors of Native Veddah Aethho and NOT that of Para-Sinhala Para-Tamils. See Journal of Human Genetics volume 59, pages 28–36 (2014).

          All are ancestors of Native Veddah Aethho, and NOT ancestors of Para-Sinhala and Para-Tamils.

          Any coincidence in the genetics, is due to the Para-Sinhala and Para-Tamils, raping or marrying the Native Veddah Aethho women.

          From the phylogenetic, principal coordinate and analysis of molecular variance results, the Vedda occupied a position separated from all other ethnic people of the island, who formed relatively close affiliations among themselves, suggesting a separate origin of the former.

          This study, in which 271 individuals, representing the Sri Lankan ethnic populations mentioned, were typed for their mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) hypervariable segment 1 (HVS-1) and part of hypervariable segment 2 (HVS-2), provides implications for their settlement history on the island.

          The haplotypes and analysis of molecular variance revealed that Vedda people’s mitochondrial sequences are more related to the Sinhalese and Sri Lankan Tamils’ than the Indian Tamils’ sequences.

          MtDNA haplogroup analysis revealed that several West Eurasian haplogroups as well as Indian-specific mtDNA clades were found amongst the Sri Lankan populations.

          Through a comparison with the mtDNA HVS-1 and part of HVS-2 of Indian database, both Tamils and Sinhalese clusters were affiliated with Indian subcontinent populations than Vedda people who are believed to be the native population of the island of Sri Lanka.

        A Tamil man pretending to be a Vaedda, calling the Sinhalese para- this and para- that, thinks he is smart? He is even calling Buddhism as para-. Surely if you are intelligent enough you will be able to get your message through without pretending to be a Vaedda and insulting them and then using derogatory terms to attack the Sinhalese, now wouldn’t you?

        Let me give you the opportunity taste your own ethnic bigotry. From one of you Tamils’ favourite references, namely Ancient Ceylon, by Henry Parker (page 43):
        Skull capacity of Sinhalese and Tamils:
        Sinhalese – 1438.8 cubic centimeters
        Tamils – 1247 cubic centimeters

        According to the type of scientists you are using (eg. Richard Lynn and his IQ studies), higher skull capacity means higher IQ. So, guess who is pulling the mean IQ down in Sri Lanka?

          Alright, now you have qualified as an expert in eugenics.

          Did Parker tell you what was in the both skulls?
          The size of the skull is immaterial, if it was empty, like yours. It is people like you who not only drag average IQ down but also the preventing the economic development and quality of mental health.

          Please stop repeating the things you definitely have no idea.

          The fact of the matter is you are a descendant of Kallathonies like your Demela brethren. Therefore you have no right to lie. If you want to live a life of lie please go back to your ancestral homeland, South India. When you go take your Tamil brethren with you.

          I find only those whose ancestors arrived here relatively recently take active part in manufacturing history, zealous defenders of Sinhala/Buddhism (whatever that maybe), and usually have no clue as to what they are talking about, for example you.

          According to your skull measurement theories, the CEOs of Pepsi cola , Microsoft, etc should not be Tamils. Is there some favouritism going on?
          Also, I am puzzled why you object to the word “para” which is not even a Sinhala word. It comes from the word “Farangi” which was what the Muslims called the Portuguese. It means “french (crusader)”. Locally, it means foreign.
          Buddhism is foreign. The Sinhalese claim N.Indian descent. Keep your hat on .

            You are puzzled? Why? Para- is a Sinhalese term, from long before there were any Muslims. Besides meaning foreign, it also means enemy, low-life and a whole range of other things in Sinhala.

            Your arguments here are as dumb as your arguments in the other discussion about Tamils being a small minority in India. You left that discussion after being exposed. Buddhism is an universal religion. It is not foreign to anywhere in the world.
             
            Who are north Indians? Sinhalese do not claim descent from any of the people presently occupying north India and no study (both genetic and linguistic) has been able to find any particular group of people whom the Sinhalese descend from anywhere in the whole of India. According to the much talked about legend Sinhalese claim descent from a lion and not from north Indians. FYI all people further south of north India has been north Indians at one time, including the Tamils, Sinhalese and also the Vaeddas. BTW the Vaeddas claim descent from the mythical Vijaya and kinship with the Sinhalese. People can claim what they want. What matters is what these different relationships mean, and how a given country can have peace and prosperity. Tamils like Amarasiri who use the Vaeddas in this cunning and cruel way to promote anti-Sinhalese propaganda and hate-speech against the Sinhalese, prove that Tamils really do not have a legitimate cause and have no real attachment or belonging in this island. The kind of behaviour Amarasiri and the likes of him show, amply qualify them for the term in question.

                I have given you a reference to what para- is. If you are not able to read and understand it, there is nothing much I can do. There has been several articles and hundreds of comments in CT regarding what para- is. Just note that in Sinhala para- is not a word – i.e. just saying “para” will not make any sense at all. Its used as a prefix. You have to add something more to it to make sense. There are hundreds of words with para- in it, in Sinhala that its simply not possible that para- is from Farangi. Moreover Farangi has been borrowed into Sinhala as Parangi (through Muslims or Tamils) and means Portuguese and not foreign.
                 
                Skull capacity theories not being mine is not an argument, but a fact. Do you think I invented those obnoxious theories or studies or whatever you want to call them? I have given the reference and the book can be found free at archive dot org. Mine was just an answer to Amarasiri’s “IQ 79” comments. If the skull capacities upset you can just disregard my comment. Anyways those capacity data are just as unscientific as Amarasiri’s “IQ 79”. Funny though, I have not seen you getting upset or worked up about his comments. Although I think that the data are unscientific and actually outright wrong, I will post them every time I see Amarasiri’s “IQ 79” posts, just to make my point.
                 
                Ref. Buddhism/Islam/Christianity and “racist like me attacking Muslims and Christians” – there’s not enough space or IQ or good behaviour here to discuss this matter and there have been so many discussions on this earlier so I will simply let you have your opinion about it undisturbed.

                  You claim that Buddhism is an “universal religion”, but such a religion should be capable of being practiced by anybody anywhere. The monotheistic religions can, but Buddhism cannot. I must make clear that I personally think the Buddha was much more rational than any of the others. I just object to the fake racist local variety.
                  Amarasiri is perfectly right. Given a level playing field, it is pretty clear what community comes out on top. The reason has a lot to do with culture and/ or intelligence.

                    Well right now the Tamils do not even have a playing field, according their own claims…. LMAO. Amarasiri’s IQ 79 is not from a proper study at all. Its from a study done in 1954 using improvised 8 year olds in some rural village. The purpose of the study was something completely different, and there was never a IQ score calculated. Richard Lynn in one of his books just took the study and converted the scores into IQs. He doesn’t give any details for how he converted the Srilankan scores, but it seems he treated them as adult scores. He has been criticized by many scientists on a wide range of things – one thing is not giving out data. Let me tell you how he calculated the Pakistani IQ – since no data was available he calculated based on the Indian. In one place he states that the Srilankan studies were also calculated like that, based on the Indian score, then in another place he refers to the 1954 study. The Indian IQ was calculated by him to be 81 and he reduced 2 for Srilanka since something about the ongoing war at that time (his book is from 2002 or 2004). I’ll post a better post with references if anybody is interested. Just wrote this in a hurry – just to explain how dumb that IQ 79 is.

                    Buddhism is being practiced all over the world. You don’t need anything to adhere to Buddha’s teachings. I think all these prophets, sages and Buddhas have a role to play in our lives and they have preached for the betterment of human-beings, in this life and the life/lives to come. As you know, in Srilanka we actually donot have any majour religious conflicts.

                      Old Codger,
                      In both Iceland and Greenland people can survive without having to kill. In both places there are arable land areas and they grow vegetables, berries, grains and from the sea they get seaweeds, which makes a very good and healthy diet. Although they don’t have to import, much of the vegetables are already imported. If humans can live somewhere by killing animals, then they can very well live without killing those animals, because if animals are present then grass and plants are not far away.
                       
                      Our original disagreement was about whether or not Buddhism is foreign to Sri Lanka. My answer was that Buddhism being a universal religion is not foreign to anywhere in the world and that Buddhism can be practiced anybody in the world. This I guess is true for most religions and not only Buddhism. So I think, my argument was not good and slightly irrelevant, because that is not the real issue here. If people in a given country adopt a religion as their own religion and that religion is properly indigenized, then I think its dumb to say that, that religion is foreign to that country. One can only talk of origins of a religion in this regard – Buddhism ofcourse originates from India, as such it is foreign. But again, when it has been adopted by the people here, not just as any religion, but as the national and state religion, then I think calling it foreign is dumb and pointless. Buddhism is attacked by Tamils in this way because it symbolizes the religion of the enemy, namely the Sinhalese. Everything Sinhalese is attacked, insulted, trampled and attempted destroyed, Buddhism as the national religion of the Sinhalese is most certainly not spared.

                      I see you are given to hair-splitting. Greenland has only 1% arable area. The animals that Inuits kill are sea animals, like seals .So the island cannot support a population of Buddhists.Iceland is similar. Be that as it may, whether what is practiced in Sri Lanka is Buddhism is doubtful. As you say, it has been heavily “indigenized”, with liberal doses of Hinduism, animism, and racism. Coupled with the clergy’s ignorance and feudal attitudes, there is much ground for criticism.But even that is not allowed when people are locked up for “insulting Buddhism”. The very same people condemn Muslim countries for having blasphemy laws!

                      Old Codger,
                      Hair splitting was brought to the discussion by you. Continuing on Greenland – Greenland is 33 times bigger than Sri Lanka and has only about 60,000 people compared to our 21 million (about 350 larger population than Greenland). 1% of Greenland is one third of Srilanka, they should have a lot of arable land compared to Srilanka, if 1% arable. Greenland can very well support its population even if all of them became Buddhists. Buddhists do not have to be strictly vegetarian. This is also a misconception that Buddhism doesn’t allow eating meat. The accepted view among many is that Buddhist can eat meat, but not kill the animals – i.e Buddhists can eat animals which had died naturally. Some therefore think that in Theravada Buddhism meat eating is allowed, however there are sections of Sinhalese who oppose this view and insist on vegetarianism. (Ref. Greenland – what better place is there than Greenland to actually eat meat of animals which had died naturally – eg. a polar bears lives for about 20 years and if they can find a polar bear which had died (which is presumbly rare) can be preserved for months in the ice and consumed). There are Buddhist sects which have almost declared that meat eating is allowed – like the Tibetan Buddhists. Even Dalai Lama eats meat. I personally do not think that it is necessary to eat meat in a place like Srilanka where we have abundant vegetables and fruits, but in places like Tibet or Greenland they will have to adopt ingenious methods to be vegetarian and/or eat meat of animals which have not been killed, all depending on how they interpret the teachings of Buddha.

                      Old Codger,
                      You say “…whether what is practiced in Sri Lanka is Buddhism is doubtful”. If what is practiced in Srilanka is not Buddhism, can you say where Buddhism is practiced? Your interest in Buddhism is only for the purpose of attacking the Sinhalese. You, like all other anti-Sinhalese attack us by exalting Buddhism, which you actually have no real religious connection to, and putting that exalted Buddhism against the Sinhalese to castigate us. When you do this you are attempting not only to castigate the Sinhalese, but you are trying to take away Buddhism from the Sinhalese and for a second time around put Buddhism, the religion of the Sinhalese against us. FYI when Buddhists or Buddhist monks do wrong deeds, they are breaking Buddhist codes, ethics and norms, they are not practicing Buddhism, and they never claim that what they are doing has acceptance in Buddhist teaching. But people like you are trying to say that those wrong deeds are infact what Srilankan/Sinhalese Buddhism is. This is nothing but another example of how anti-Sinhalese try to castigate the Sinhalese. These tactics are present in all anti-Sinhalese writings. I read one commentator here writing about wanting to save Buddhism from the Sinhalese. LOL. All this shows that the Tamils and the anti-Sinhalese are having a hard time trying to break the Sinhalese. Buddhism is a majour problem for the Tamils, because the Buddhist history, especially Theravada Buddhist history is strongly bound with the Sinhalese, and Sinhalese are credited for preserving the ancient scriptures and propagating Buddhism to other countries while the Tamils are credited for being anti-Buddhist and the ones who destroyed the Sinhalese Buddhist civilization in Rajarata.   Contd. bleow»

                      Contd. »   The very fact that so much importance is given in Tamil propaganda against the Sinhalese to the issues about Buddhism, shows the importance of Buddhism for Sinhalese, and the importance of Sinhalese contribution to Buddhism. To get an idea about how the anti-Sinhalese propaganda works, you can try the same kind of arguments using Christianity and Sinhalese. Example: if somebody says “… whether what is practiced in Sri Lanka is Christianity is doubtful” how does it sound? Most people would say “who cares?” as it doesn’t affect the Sinhalese or Christianity all. But when the issue is about Buddhism, it becomes a problem, since Tamils are trying to claim that Sinhalese Buddhism deviates from Buddhist teachings – like you have done by saying that Buddhism was indigenized in Srilanka with “liberal doses of ….. racism”. Really, you Tamils and anti-Sinhalese are so wicked and heartless, that you will resort to anything to attack the Sinhalese. Can you tell what this racism is and how it has been incorporated into Buddhism? FYI fighting for our right to exist and practice our religion and protect our way of life is not racism. Sinhalese didn’t invade other people’s countries and take anything from anyone. Its always the others who have come here and harassed us and demanded all sorts of things. Not giving half of our island to the Tamils who are a mere 10% minority who already have a homeland in Tamilnadu is also not racism. I think we have done everything possible to accommodate the Tamils, but the Tamils will not be happy until the last Sinhalese is vanished from this world. So, if we are to be good Buddhists according to your definition, we would actually have to just vanish from this world en masse.

        The Americans at the moment under Donald Trump consider SL “a piece of SHIT”.
        Ex CJ’s of SL does not carry any weight in the USA. It might appear significant to the locals for the ex CJ to emphasize his previous legal credentials in SL. It’s all politics.

        This is another Silva who desecrated the position of Chief Justice.. the damage Sarath Silva had done cannot be quantified.
        They were both stooges of the Rajapaksas who did not act honourably and acted on the dictates of MR.
        Shirani Bandaranayake who did not play ball was hounded out of office. shameless rascals cooked Kiribath by her official residence when she was leaving.
        Suckers like Anura Apriyadharshana yapa too joined to eat. What a time we had.

    Yeah LTTE has suffered tremendously during the Rajapaksa regime,quite deservingly so.

    • 12

      Don’t forget not only the LTTE suffered in the hands of the ruthless murderous Gota’s men the Tamils too were terrorised. Innocent Tamils living all over Srilanka and in Foreign countries too were terrorised by some of the Majority community.
      The terror instilled by these men from a so called GOSL Armed forces were beyond imagination.
      The schools and school children suffered without proper education out of fear and lack of Food.
      They were affected psychologically.
      What about the women and elderly.
      They were left to starve and die of Malnutrition.
      Clearly there was no money or food but they caused fear Psychosis.
      The people were able to get some comfort from the equally ruthless LTTE who were fighting for equal rights to live ,work and progress.
      This was crippled by the Revengeful GOSL Armed forces and the politicians.
      What did the TAMIL POLITICIANS do during this time…?? They went to sleep while lining their pockets for themselves and their families.
      All Tamil Politicians are Greedy too.
      They’re still greedy lining their pockets by saying ” YES Sir NO SIR THREE BAGS FULL SIRS””
      to the which ever traitors from the majority ready to buy them with money ,land and jewellery.
      They’re obviously traitors of Tamils their own race.
      Still they have not spoken or resolved problems for the Bereaved ,Raped, Tortured or even Improsoned for years and years without charges.
      WHAT about the lands and houses lost in the name of war taken over by the GOSL Armed forces and by Tamil Politicians too.
      They’re silent because they’re in partnership with the GOSL in the annihilation of Tamils??
      Why? Are they all Senile or just Pandering to the majority??
      Why the Tortured and Raped Tamils have to go abroad and submit cases of torture against the GOSL .

        Analyst,
        Demalu declared war against the GOSL by killing 13 soldiers. Government had to take action to protect the country and citizens from Demala invaders. If Demala people had to suffer, blame megalomaniac barbarian Prabhakaran and LTTE savages. They killed more Demalu than the Armed Forces. LTTE cadres raped Demala women. They snatched children from parents and recruited as child soldiers. According to UN, there were about 3000 child soldiers. Why blame Rajapakses?

          Of course you do not need to scratch Nanda Gota’s back when you can carry and scratch his b***s.

          Why do the lankies always lower their dignity, self respect, …………. shamelessly by defending crooks, murderers, drug dealers, ……………… ? Didn’t your parents teach you to avoid crooks, murderers, drug dealers, ……… ?

          Nandasena should be allowed to win this time, so that the Sinahala/Buddhist fascists will learn to hate him. Nandasena cannot keep his white van fleet inactive. Serial killers cannot stop killing.

            Fake Vedda,
            Native Veddas never say ‘Sinhala Buddhist fascists’ because they lived in harmony with Native Sinhalayo for thousands of years. They also fought with Sinhalayo against British during the Liberation Struggle in 1818 while ‘Para Demalu’ and ‘Para Malays’ fought against Sinhalayo with the British Army.
            —-
            Do you keep on chanting the Mantra ‘Sinhala Buddhist fascists’, ‘Sinhala Buddhist fascists’, ‘Sinhala Buddhist fascists’ assuming that the International Community will start to believe that based on Gobble’s Theory?

      as usual these articles are subject to different interpretations.They should make it very clear whether international courts are included.Since they have not then it is subject to interpretation in different ways.That is why they are always sent to the supreme court to decide on its interpretation and give judgement accordingly.

    Shameless Sri Lankan 42nd Chief Justice is bought over with the looted funds to do the dirty work for Gota. In Sri Lanka any one could be bought over with a put of gold, and all of them don’t give a damp about respect or decency, and all what matters for them is the filthy dirty money. While trying to defend the murderers and looters, the former CJ becomes the laughing stock of the planet.

    It is everybody’s knowledge that all these court cases emerge on the assumption that Gotabhaya will contest for Presidency.
    To be fair, every citizen has a right to defend himself or herself
    Denying this right to Gotabhaya clearly shows that the case is unproven.

      “To be fair, every citizen has a right to defend himself or herself”

      True, however the victims didn’t have the means of defending themselves when Gota’s goons were unleashed.

      “Denying this right to Gotabhaya clearly shows that the case is unproven.”

      Unlike Gota’s victims, Gota is free to defend himself in those courts. What makes you think Gota’s rights are being denied in the US?

    CT,
    Be aware o what you report since publisher ( Uvindu ) and the moderators live in foreign lands and thus do not have access to the ground situation in SL.
    Thus, pls ensure that you validate the articles that are published in your website since many articles since-of-late have being heavily biased, and not representing the real-life situations, but oriented and biased by the author of the article.

    Also it appears that your website is supporting liberal thinking which has being the main thought process in the likes of Angela Merkel( Germany), Emanuel Macron (France), and Justin Tredeau (Canada) .

    All these politicians have triggered the end-result in sociopolitical equilibrium in their respective countries, and also the effect on Europe as a whole, due to the synergistic impact.
    The EU member countries will gt bogged down due to this immigrant crises and it may take another two decades ( at the least) to recover from this crisis.

    By then, the economies of the East Asian Countries ( Taiwan, Malaysia, Indonesia, the Philippines and Even Cambodia and Laos would have overtaken the economies of some of the European Countries, making Asia the main global e-Economic Hub

    What is wrong with liberal thinking?
    Could you define what you consider as being liberal thinking?

    This petition will back fire on both GOTA as well as the quality of the former CJ into question by Ahimsa’s Lawyers. This will give a very good opportunity for them to expose the independence of CJ as well as how Sri Lankan courts have carried out its duties towards its citizens, in California with hearing. Before long GOTA – Mahinda as well as the former CJ would realize the serious blunder they have committed that would help Ahimsa to establish how Judiciary and Judges try to evade all civil and criminal cases filed against Rajapakshes. It would be interesting to see the outcome of this in the future.

    Moda Blind Eagle, aka HLD, for you to get wisdom you must hang VP’s photo in your room and pray three times a day. Moda Blind, raping is the job of Sinhala army and certainly not VP’ army. Ever since you racists start attacking Tamil civilians using your civilians, clergy and Sinhala armed forces the war had started. It is not 83 but 1956. The gravest blunder suddhas did by passing power to morons. Once they decided to leave India they did not care a damn about Lanka. What can they do with this land infested by a bunch of blind morons. Asoka is an Indian Hindu king who gave life to Buddhism and sent it across to Eelam. But he never expected that the morons would ruin Buddhism like this. Had they allowed Hinduism to continue things may have been entirely different. In vain our Hindu religion and culture and languages were abused by these blind bats. Now they prosper through rumour mongering, lying, slandering, distorting, and destroying. Blind your dhemalu mithrayas are misleading you. Just look at your former Cheap Cheap Justice wagging his tail to a killer and worst still he carries the name of Asoka. Hightime indians deal with you all guys for abusing their names and traditions and culture.

    Blind Eagle aka HLD, in one way you are correct when you say sinhalas are unique to Lanka. I agree we cannot find such morons anywhere else on this earth. They are unique. Their attitude is unique, their values are unique and their beliefs are unique. Even the language is unique. Sinhala language is a new recipe sambaru where Vedda, Pali, Sanskrit, Tamil , Portuguese languages are mixed up. You guys are 100 % Para. Religion 100% para. Culture 100% para. Language 100% para. Dresses 100% Para. Food 100% Para. Yet you guys are unique and quite an exclusive race confined only to Lanka. Because despite borrowing 100% yet you guys could not value your roots or origin and never budged from Vedda’s time. Mindset remained unique. In a dyanamic world only some feeble minded, primitive thinking clowns only think of an original people or race. While scientists claim Of Darwinism, migration, survival of f the fittest, etc these few clowns are trying to create an original race. Moda Eagle tell me one name or term or god or belief that is original. Also you guys are unique because you have lost the ability to think or learn or analyse. How about your heroes Gnanasara, And that balu dostharaya from A pure. Incidentally Sinhala archaeologists are no different to Blind or HLD, or Mahanayakas or many other historians. I may take Weeramonkey seriously than some of these academics. You have also trained that pathetic dostharaya Jayasumana and he too says that Tamils were brought by Portuguese for tobacco cultivation. Moda Blind, you guys are unique no doubt.

    Imagine there’s no countries
    It isn’t hard to do
    Nothing to kill or die for
    And no religion, too
    Imagine all the people
    Living life in peace
    You, you may say I’m a dreamer
    But I’m not the only one
    I hope someday you will join us
    And the world will be as one
    Imagine no possessions
    I wonder if you can
    No need for greed or hunger
    A brotherhood of man
    Imagine all the people
    Sharing all the world
    You, you may say I’m a dreamer
    But I’m not the only one
    I hope someday you will join us
    And the world will live as one
