Sri Lanka’s Top Torture Chief Sisira Mendis Given One-Year Contract Extension

Cabinet has granted controversial Director of Sri Lanka’s Centre for National Intelligence, Sisira Mendis a further 12 months until June 2018.

Sisira Mendis

Sisira Mendis was the Deputy Inspector General (DIG) in charge of the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) in Sri Lanka with oversight over the Terrorism Investigation Division (TID) during the final phase of the war. These police units were named by UN investigations as responsible for torture and sexual violence during the period when Mendis was in charge. Indeed the UN described routine and systematic sexual violence and torture during this period as “part of a deliberate policy” rather than isolated acts.

Mendis is mentioned by name in the OISL report as being the official with command responsibility for what the UN describes as a “particularly notorious” torture site: “The CID is primarily responsible for investigating serious and organised crime, but also engaged with counter-terrorism activities. CID are plainclothes police and have surveillance, intelligence and analysis sections. Its ‘4th Floor’ facility at Police HQ in Colombo is particularly notorious as a place where many detainees are taken for interrogation. In April 2009, the Deputy Inspector General (DIG) of the CID was Sisira Mendis”

On 15th November 2016, the Johannesburg-based International Truth and Justice Project (ITJP) had prepared a report called “The Case Against Sisira Mendis”. To read the report click here.

    Sisira Mendis
    looks perturbed due to withdrawal symptoms. For almost 2 years and 6 months he is denied of daily dosage of sadistic pleasure at the 4th floor and Joseph Camp in Vavunia.

    Was he the man in charge for research and development in new, improved and creative torture technique?

    Does the wife share the same bed, enjoy all his sexual techniques, allow him to touch their children, … ?

      I don’t think even his wife wants this type of crap. Good probability is that she is sharing some other politicians bed or the love of the bodyguard/guards that’s actually caring for her and giving protection.

      Sir,
      Why not hang this piece of crap with a human face, from his vital parts, upside down? Preferably on Galle Face Green. For all to see and learn, what a sadistic beast looks like. Cheers!

        “Why not hang this piece of crap with a human face, from his vital parts, upside down? Preferably on Galle Face Green.”

        Probably The lonely Field Marshall might enjoy doing it however weren’t they all working together in a team?

        However if you are going to invent new techniques to punish him where would inventing these techniques end?

        I am worried about these sadists living among civilians as normal human beings unless of course they are counselled for a long time and being constantly monitored. Men like him and their golayas should be electronically tagged and tracked by satellites. Remember these are men who are the fathers, brothers, uncles, grandfathers, husbands, sons, nephews, son in laws, grandchildren, ………………………. are imminent danger to their friends and relatives.
        —–
        Remember these are men who were desensitized through out their career being professional torturers with guaranteed impunity.

        Every police station you have such sadists in order to extract whatever they want to extract from the subjects, lie or truth depending on who want them to talk.

          new techniques do not “end”; that’s why its called “new technique”.

      UK and USA training these ba……..rds with the kind of actual torture training ?
      Are they wasting their own tax payers money on this kind of training?
      Is it worth the training or part and parcel of the military torture training ??
      These countries who offer training of this kind should be hauled in front of UNHCR !!

      For the world on humanitarian grounds they offer to help and assist with training the murderous regime to change their merderous mentality , in fact it has become a laugh.!

      Wasting time and money on this THIRD WORLD MERDEROUS REGIME!!
      None of them should be spared including the TRAINERS from UK AND USA!

        There is no connection at all.

        However you shouldn’t be surprised if you saw the same pattern of behaviour among group of connected little islanders such as sach, Champa, Eussence, Sarojini, Shenali, ………………… These are unpaid volunteers ever willing to act as “b***s carriers” to the most odious of little fascists.

      “This Dude is definitely not from the UNP LGBTQ Faction”

      If you are into sadomasochism he is the right man. He is an innovator, created new techniques , his speciality pipe, barbed wire and your rectum, p***s piercing, b***s busting (act of kicking, kneeing or punching), b***s crushing, chilly powder, sack ……….and face, ……………………..

      You should have a session with him.

      May be he is thinking of opening sadomasochist private clubs through out the island on his retirement. He has skilled and experienced staff who are ever ready to join him. They are great craftsmen in their trade.

        You bloody idiot do not talk crap without knowing facts – do you and other idiots have evidence to prove what you are writing in public – Sisira Mendis is one of the sharpest CID officers in the service – he had done enormous service during the height of LTTE terrorisms in this country by fore warning and neutralizing LTTE plans to carry out killing missions – of course he is an enemy of the enemies of this country

          Its good to hear from a potential official b***s carrier to the clan. ” do you and other idiots have evidence to prove what you are writing in public”. Do you and other b***s carriers have evidence to clear his name?

          Why did the Official Torturer in Chief find himself unable to provide satisfactory explanation to UNHRC when foolishly found himself some months ago. Why did he promise to provide written explanation on return if he is the sharpest CID officer.

          Perhaps he is good at using sharp instruments to extract “”””Confessions””””. Please if you want to be his official “b***s carrier” out of love for like minded people, please feel free to do so. However neither jobs are popular among ordinary human beings.

    The guy even looks like a sadistic SOB, but the extension does not surprise me and torture and rape was a sanctioned operation of the previous govt and everyone knew sort of knew it and the Sinhala majority practically supported it as they were not the victims.

    The current President was not a back bencher but one of top operators of the previous govt to a point that in the absence of MR he was in charge of defense.

    No way are these criminals going to be ever investigated or charged as long as MS holds unto power and the Rajapaksa’s including Dealdasa has a say in the government.

      You SOB – Do you think LTTE goons were humans ? Have you already forgotten how LTTE Goons hacked , bombed so many innocents of all racial groups in this country – none of those killed had anything to do with – Eeelam demand of LTTE goons – Sisira was one of the person who tirelessly work to nullify many killing missions of these Goons -So how can he be a SOB – I would say all the idiots who call him names without any proofs are ungrateful SOBs

    An important “Ranawiruvo” to be declared a National Hero of Sri Lanka. The nation should safeguard him from UN torture ! The people and the clergy should rise against any unjust happening to this brave police officer by any International tribunals or UN. He’s our hero of the first class and all the Ranawiruvo’s should follow his ‘noble’ path to become successful in life and attain Nibbana !

      I rather wish the cowardly sadists attain Nibbana now than “become successful in life”. How do you measure success? Is it breaking as many people as possible physically and mentally and burying them in unidentified pits, burning them on tyre pyre or throwing them in Kalyani Ganga?

    He has the looks of a psychopathic killer. After reading the report it looks as if my initial impression was correct. I am sure he will remain on the payroll of the GoSL even well past his retirement age. He is the sort of person the government loves to employ.

    Torture in Sri Lanka has been investigated and reported by a UN Rapporteur :-

    http://www.ohchr.org/Documents/HRBodies/HRCouncil/RegularSession/Session22/A.HRC.22.53_English.pdf

    Torture and other inhuman methods of “extracting” information from persons in police and prison custody has existed for many decades.
    Successive governments have ignored these vile practices and hence it has become difficult to eradicate it.
    This article is proof that a “chief torturer” / “chief of torture” has been given official “recognition” in law enforcement and even sent to represent the state in the UN.
    Thus, “sadism” appears to be officially ignored by successive governments which take pride in giving the ‘foremost pride to Buddhism’ in the constitution, a religion which like all others, prohibits such treatment.
    In other democratic countries, such practices have been mostly eradicated, and any state officer guilty of such practices dealt with by judicial procedure.

    The rather unsavory language used by commenters will achieve nothing but is an outlet to vent their anger.
    The cabinet deciding to extend the tenure by an year indicates either
    (a) the allegations are baseless which is highly unlikely or going into details may unearth more skeletons or
    (b) there is a corrupt structure able to sway the cabinet through intimidation or
    (c) it is better to keep the man inside because he will be more dangerous outside.
    The last one (if true) is really really really bad. It means a structure exists which is waiting for a wink wink nudge nudge.

    Why was this piece of scum given an extension. The piece of shit must be brought before the courts n sentenced to a slow death.start with slicing the vd infected penis inch by inch and fed to the pigs. The testes to be cut and flushed in the toilet. The brain to be preserved in acid as a reminder how human brains degenerate into monsters. The bastards in power will protect this prick but now time for the masses to take to the streets and expose dealdasa our crooked justice minister. Crooked and double tongued and dishonest shittyfaced liar that he is.
