    Thummulle Wimal Modawansa has said so many things
    Why is he not arrested.
    Why is Dr. Ranil protecting him and the Medamulana Morons.

        Wimal was arrested and jailed for 3 months for no reason, you LTTE supporter.
        Johnston is still in custody denying bail for no reason.
        This tiger woman should have been jailed indefinitely for the speech she made to promote terrorism in Sri Lanka.

          Champawathi,

          If a JVPyer says in Parliment the parliament has to be bombed (Possibly because the parliamentarian are selected by election not by Wimal) then is that JVPyer need not to be put in jail indefinitely?

            If you have proof go to the nearest police station and file a complaint. Why wait? Make sure the take a copy of a CD which carried the original speech of the said JVPer, ok.

              Champawathi,
              What is your point? Is that JVPyer does things without leaving any evidence to a CD, or if I go to any police station Rapist Police will only file a case against me but not against the JVPyer? Why the police arrested JVPyer’s wife to the death of a teen age boy? They have the CD?
              JVPyer said that Diaspora leaders hiring Sinhalese (Probably he meant Mervyn’s, Gananam’s class) to murder Muslims. Why wouldn’t he like go to a police station with the CD? Is that because you always tell the JVPyer not to take video of things?
              Can your puny brain understand what a “criminal complaint” means?
              Why the so many rape and murder cases filed against army and police are not going through? Is that because police is demanding that the women or relatives have to bring the rape CDs to prove their cases? Why police refused to do a DNA analysis on Vydia rape case, even though the samples were given to them? Is that because Vydia family never paid their taxes? How did they find the accused as killers? They the have the Sex Video? Why didn’t they allow Tamil jury there? What happened to the girl who was gone missing & then she appeared with New King when went to North and she went into disappear again? She was standing near him in Video and Photos and they were given even to New King but the girl is not coming. Why? Have you written your comment on the essay, where Jehan PhD posted about that missing girl on the CT ? Did you advise Jehan PhD to go to police with the photo in that she was with New King?
              What can be done to for a video graph for when Rapist Army had plant bomb into the private part and detonate the victim after rape and cleared the site?
              The CID napped the Mahanama in Hotel parking lot with video recording. Now what else your Rapist police want to file a case on Mahanama?

              Dharisha Bastians and Arthur Wamanan took the evidences that CID had in the files and gave to NYT. NYT has published that Old King was involved with China in and election fraud and CID has the records in their files. It was even printed by Daily news three years ago. CID is having these evidences in their files and evidence to that also now summited. What else the CID want to file a case against the Old King?
              Why after 10 years the complaint of 150,000 murders remaining not taken to any court even after LLRC recommended an investigation?
              You know your army is rated as rapist army by UN and they stopped taking your Rapists Army serving in their peace keeping. You don’t care about that because you asked the UN to send the rape videos to you and they still have not sent that to you? Is that right
              Why last time Yahapalanaya had to give an election promise that “No Leader, No Commander, No Soldier will be prosecuted”? Is that because they know that all CD will be missing When it comes to the police?
              Jayam was brought in to expedite Thajudeen case because Police DIG placed orders to Narahenpita OIC to wipe out the evidences. Then where do I go for the CD? Now Jayam is in criminal cases and told to resign as soon as possible instead of CID wasting money on manufacturing video DVSs and CDs & planting evidences against him.
              Why New King refused to investigate the CDs given to him by UNSG’s Expert Panel, but wanted to declare that Rapist Army is guilt free in UN, but a pad lock was placed to his mouth by the Colombo diplomats? I guess you don’t read papers so you have no idea about that, right?
              In that circumstances how my complaint at police station going to save the victims?

              Champawathi there is nobody as smart as you are in proving how stupid you talk.

                A simple answer to your rigmarole.
                UNHRC, LTTE and TNA had 3 years and 9 months to prove any charges against our Army including bogus allegations of rape.
                If they have evidence they had ample time to prove.
                The CDs you talk about, were they authenticated by an impartial international body? How could any government believe their genuineness?
                Making a complaint at the police station is the first step to find out whether you are telling the truth or not.
                The recent NYT article was only a reproduction of their first article published when this government came into power.
                The Chinese Embassy, the Chinese government and Mahinda Rajapaksa rejected the allegation paving the NYT to prove their allegation. The stage of open but the NYT ran way and hid themselves. I am sure they will peep their head and reproduce the article close to the Presidential election again.
                The President I believe wanted a general pardon to be granted to Army and terrorists both. Our Army doesn’t need a pardon for crimes they DIDN’T COMMIT. If there was any talk about a general amnesty, it is in favour of terrorists.
                Do you say the foreign Diplomats put a pad lock on his mouth and blocked him for forgiving terrorists? Seriously?

                    Our Army was not shivering or hiding. They were always ready to attack and vanquish Prabhakaran. They couldn’t do it for 34 years because every time we tried to defeat LTTE, the international community including India, intervened and put pressure on the Head of State to stop fighting against LTTE. So 34 years, it was attack-stop-commence attack-then stop-commence attack-then stop-commence attack-then stop…….
                    Same thing happened to Mahinda too. The international community put immeasurable pressure on him but he brushed aside all pressure, took the challenge head on and defeated Prabhakaran within a very short span of time.
                    It was Mahinda’s valiant political leadership that saw to the end of terrorism in Sri Lanka.

                      “Our Army was not shivering or hiding. They were always ready to attack and vanquish Prabhakaran.”

                      However, nearly 3 years from July 1987 to March 1990, the cowards were hiding behind VP’s fat bum.

                      Here is some bitter truth for you that you avoided to acknowledge all your life now read them:

                      Battle of Mullaitivu (1st)
                      (a.k.a. Operation Unceasing Waves)
                      1,242 Army Killed

                      Operation Jayasikurui
                      1,350 Army Killed


                      Oddusuddan Offensive
                      800 Army Killed

                      According to Gota altogether roughly soldiers 26000 were killed, 30000 disabled, 80,000 deserted, all because the cowards didn’t fight the LTTE’s baby brigades but spent most of the time killing, raping, innocent people and stealing from them. This is not new, this has been the case since 1971.

                      What was your Army doing when a dozen Tigers attacked the Anuradhapura airbase ,destroying many planes on the ground ? They all ran away from a small group of attackers wearing rubber slippers!
                      Recently senior Navy officers have been suspected of kidnapping for ransom. Two former DIG’s are in jail. All these are good Sinhala Buddhists ith pirith nools etc. What a country!

                      “The Sinhalese won the war. “

                      According to JR this island was invaded by foreigners 26 times in the past 2200 years. Mostly by the South Indians, thrice by westerners, recently by Hindian IPKF. Within the last 70 years there had been violent rebellion 3 times and numerous riots.

                      Are you telling us that there won’t be another war in the future and everything going to be hunky dory, the people are going to live happily ever after?

                      Remember the last three wars against the westerners were lost and they ruled this country for nearly 450 years the last one left voluntarily because Brits knew they could not hold on to this island while India was free. The last war against Hindians was foolishly fought by LTTE while the brave home made cowards were hiding behind VP’s fat bum.

                      You should stop gloating and review your sham victories. Because you do not have any other positive achievements you will have to rely on brag about something that was collectively gifted to you by 30 odd countries and VP.

                      Celebrate while it last.
                      When tsunami strikes next time let’s see how many people your brave soldiers are going to save. The last time they couldn’t win the tsunami and save 30,000 innocent life.

                      A study claims the next tsunami could generate 650 metre high waves, travel at more than 1000 kilometre per hour, and more than 5000 miles with the same force at its origin.

                      Please warn Sangha to move their abots and karaka saba from Kandy into inland/highland and advise your ranaviru to hide behind them.

                      The attack on the SLAF base in Anuradhapura was carried out by LTTE Black Tiger-commandos with air cover by two LTTE aircraft which dropped two bombs on the air force base damaging two aircraft.
                      20 Black Tigers were killed by AF men without any outside support.

                      Why didn’t your brave soldiers make a citizen arrest of David Cameron when he visited Sri Lanka in 2013 and drag him all the way to International Criminal Court (ICC), Hague, Netherlands for war crimes committed by his troops all over the world?

                      Why wasn’t John Snow of Channel 4 arrested when he visited Sri Lanka in 2013 although inapt and clumsy intelligence officers(?) were shadowing his crew wherever they went, including toilets? He was spreading fake news from 2009 on Sri Lanka war crimes.

                      Vidanapathirana escaped justice until cameron caught Mahinda’s b***s and got his heart and mind to waive impunity the rapist murderer enjoyed since 2011. Little islanders can only beat the local bullies not the larger ones from outside.

                  Champawathi,
                  “A simple answer to your rigmarole “ So, because you are brought under Sinhala Only Jury verdict, you thought you can simply deny in one word and run away when the real Western powerful canons start to tear you off at a ICC court. Poor, ignorant Child is showing its immaturity!

                  “UNHRC, LTTE and TNA had 3 years and 9 months to prove any charges against our Army including bogus allegations of rape”.
                  In what court your man proved UNSG Ban-Ki-Moon was wrong in his accusation? Last 10 years Appe Aanduwa was just trying to bluff on the dictionary meaning of what is foreign means, but could not get the noose off.
                  You again are showing your ignorance. Your Old King signed a note to UNSG Ban-Ki-Moon at Colombo, for UNSG’s accusation of Rapist army has done excess and war crimes, that he would investigate it. The agreement is a public one and Old King appeared with UNSG and confirmed his agreement in Colombo press conference in May, 2009. Mangala, when he was the FAM, has explained many times that it was not easy for him just deny Old King’s promise to UNSG at UNHRC and walk out of there. Even Thero de Silva has indicated that during his time Old King gave a promise to UNSG and that was counted by the first group of nations voted in favor of his effort to temporary delay he sought at the UNHRC of its actions.

                    So what? If Mahinda sent a note to Ban-Ki-Moon, he (Banki) should have responded Mahinda by providing details about any allegations.
                    Did Ban-Ki do that? I don’t think so.
                    If he did, Mahinda could have investigated. Ask Ban-Ki-Moon why didn’t he provide details of so called “rape and murder”.
                    The reason is Ban-Ki or the LTTE diaspora didn’t have any evidence to prove their allegations. All those allegations were fabricated by LTTE diaspora and TNA to take revenge from the Army for vanquishing LTTE and Prabhakaran.
                    Mahinda has shown his genuineness to both parties. To UN and the Army.
                    Under severe pressure, as NO OTHER PRESIDENT IN THE WORLD HAS EVER EXPERIENCED from the;
                    UN,
                    UNHRC,
                    EU,
                    IMF,
                    World Bank,
                    almost ALL Western countries,
                    India,
                    INGOs,
                    HR bodies,
                    NGOs, and,
                    local Opposition Parties (for eliminating LTTE, the world’s most ruthless terrorist organization in the world at the time, from our soil,) former President Mahinda Rajapaksa has acted RESPONSIBLY, PRUDENTLY, WISELY AND DIPLOMATICALLY for the best interest of the country, by sending THAT note. Bravo!A salute to him!
                    Ban-Ki went home without providing the details of allegations against the Army. What can Mahinda do?
                    And when Mahinda is defeated and when Ban-Ki is gone home, whatever that “note” exchanged between the two parties are null and void. WE ARE NOT ABIDE by that note. It’s a “time out – no hitting” matter.
                    What does Mangala know? He has only tried to justifying his betrayal to our Army to appease LTTE diaspora for the black money taken, by putting the blame on Mahinda’s “expired note” to a former UN Secretary General.
                    (Mr. former President, (hope you will see this) something struck me while writing this. Please find someone as your Presidential candidate who could shield you and the country both.)

                      Champawathi,
                      Certainly you were cracked before you finish reading the 2nd part of the comment. I am sorry, but that is how it happens when babies and Children come within adult discussion.
                      Expert Panel wanted LLRC to come to their court room and describe the investigation they were doing. But LLRC was hiding in the closet. Expert Panel asked for Visa to come to LLRC to observe its investigation. Old King said that the theater was full, no ticket, next time. After all LLRC ended recommending investigating for war crime. Old King hired Hakeem to go and see Hillary Clinton with a dupe draft called National Action Plan. It said many corrective actions would be done in few years something in 5 Years but gave a full list of army withdrawal, land vacating, Political solution, War Crime Investigation everything would be done in 10 years. Hilary said plan was good but cut the short the time. But back at country, Old was expanding his Hitler policies instead of doing anything in the National Action Plan. Old was fooling her. But Kerry came and chased Old King out of the Temple Tree House. In the meantime, Expert Panel report covered LLRC too. UNHRC kept going as when Old were cheating. But Kerry put a halt on the UNHRC and asked Yahapalanaya to go with LLRC. So practically the OISL identified 42 war criminal were let loose because the Resolution 30/1 pecked it to investigation time other matter on LLRC.

                      Wimal who had come to know the OISL original report of the 42 war criminals names indicated in parliament who are the people UN’s OHCHR’s panel OISL was accusing as war criminals. Wimal said Old King, Old Brother Prince, New King, Ponny and many other Rapist Army commanders names were given to Yahapalanaya as war criminal. Yahapalanaya negotiated with Kerry that they will provide a political solution to Tamils so they should be allowed to stay with LLRC’s accusations that is a local war crime investigation. Ex. Secretary agreed on that and withdrew the “42 war criminals names” but represented basically the OISL report to continue for the investigation.
                      He further made ensured Yahapalanaya will be singing for the agreement to investigate within 1 ½ years. They did not investigate. So another 2 years were given. Now that is failed. Because you are an illiterate and you can’t read news media, you just claim that UNSG Ban-Ki-Moon ran away without reporting to Old Royal King. In fact, whole Lankawe knows that it was Old King who ran away from Temple Tree house. In fact UNSG Ban- Ki – Moon retired from UN during Yahapalanaya time and he visited 2nd time Lankawe to see if things are ok. Now, could you go and tell Ranil to start the investigation as per the requirements appearing in 1). LLRC, 2). Expert Panel and 3). and Resolution 30/1, instead of keep saying you don’t have any accusation?

                      Let me tell you two unreverent things for your questions but they still would be very interesting to you.
                      1.) Today HRW has released an 84 pages report on the game New King playing about land release. That is going be to be very damaging in the coming March, 2019.
                      2.) UNHRC is has been working for few month to extend the March 2019 date for further 2 years. Of cause that will be very damaging to Tamils. But the part it is going play in Lankawe politics is the most Interesting. Yahapalanaya and many Tamil groups were suggesting it would be only one year but now it is two years. Whatever it is, Ranil may have to sign the extension. Given the country’s fragile economic condition, they have to as there is no other known way to deal with it, at this time. If it were one year, Ranil’s election campaign would say that they had successfully delayed the resolution up to time to invalidate it. So then Sinhalese may hold him less responsible for that in the election. Further if he win the election he would renegotiate with UNHRC. But if he loses election, Old King, who would be coming to power, takes the bullet. If it is two years, when comeback wining, it going to be the same thing and Ranil is going to end up answer for the same thing on sixth year in a row. If he loses, Old Royal will be blaming Ranil for putting them in that situation and he will hold UNP for that.
                      So you can keep asking where the proof is, where the proof is, but because the proof is already delivered to Yahapalanaya and they are somersaulting with it.
                      “ Under severe pressure, as NO OTHER PRESIDENT IN THE WORLD HAS EVER EXPERIENCED from the………… President Mahinda Rajapaksa has acted RESPONSIBLY, PRUDENTLY, WISELY AND DIPLOMATICALLY for the best interest of the country, by sending THAT note “

                  Appe Aanduwa went to UNSG’s office and replied to Report of the “Expert Panel Report” with “Lies agreed upon”. Then, the defense was not accepted by UNSG. He expanded his actions. UNSG appointed Internal Investigation Committee on UN staff and tipped UNHCR to go ahead with OHCHR’s panel, OISL. Appe Aanduwa in response for that signed Resolution 30/1. It expired. Appe Aanduwa asked for two years extension and signed Resolution 34/1. Read the newspapers. Appe Aanduwa has given word to international bodies of having received the accusation material and the CDs (evidences) with that. Don’t just dream something.

                  Because you are disillusioning the nature of criminal accusation, war crime accusation…. you just clapping one hand that you have won UNHRC, TNA, LTTE(apparently it looks like you don’t believe your hero was honest in telling LTTE is wiped out) .

                  “Making a complaint at the police station is the first step to find out whether you are telling the truth or not. “ Poor Child you still is at the first step. But the first step alone is clocked with 850,000 cases. Probably in “case backlog /population” Lankawe may be hold the world record. Further more than half out of it could be North-East Rapist Army-paramilitary activity cases.

                Army atrocities had to be inquired. But we Tamils should be also blamed for this pathetic situation. LTTE only started the war against the IPKF without using the good sides of the Indo _ Lanka accord. Later we had honeymoon with the Sri Lankan Govt and started the 1990 EElam war II.
                No one denies in 1987-2009 too there were atrocities committed against un armed Tamil civilians by the Indians and the SL forces. Today we are in this plight(prisoners , land release etc). Mrs. Maheswaran is supposed to have used violence using a Army person against her brother in law(Business rivalry ?). She is now shouting as champion of Tamil rights and shouting against social ills in our society

                How could anybody know until he was charged? I don’t know whether the government has paid his lawyers or not, and if they did it was wrong.
                Mahinda didn’t have 100% control at the time. In fact it was Gotabhaya, Basil and some henchmen of MR who ruled the country during 2010-2015. Some of the things they did I think even he wasn’t aware. Even little belated, Maithri at least knows what is going on in the country through his spies who are under cover all over the country. Mahinda never used spies for sneaking on people.

            there is a saying among the sinhalese – when iron bag is made porous, what the use of questioning about the holes in a woven bag. Meaning the indifference and corruption/corrupted nature has grown to all appalling levels -as you would not overlook it right ?
            Meaning, Chamapas of that nature would add dung to all vicious politicians agendas sofar. They behave to the very same manner the born buddhists in my country join to the parade following and repeating the word ” sadu sadu”: Looking back none of them would not know as to why they felt compelled to join them.Their eating patterns are the same. No matter the nourishments would have been damaged, they go on over cooking food. Drinking patterns are the same. Most living across the country are far from understanding the threat could fall their health when continuing to put more sugar into their teas daily.
            Just imagine, not many would think twice before going to do anything.
            But as is the case with PVT media men and the rising numbers of fraudlent business men – they just keep on criticising. Nor would they add their alternatives to any doings as usula.

          She is not an LTTE supporter. She did not spend a penny for LTTE When the LTTE was in control she was with Sinhalese governments serving Sinhalese masters. The real LTTE masters who ran the real terror against Sinhalese and Sinhalese military are Karuna, Pillaiyan & KP. They are very good friends of Sinhalese leadership including Ranil and Mahinda. Both UNP & SLFP( Mahinda) paid money and got money from LTTE. Modaya Sinhala cannot understand who was the real LTTE and who was using LTTE to propaganda purposes. Even this attempt to arrest and release on bail is a usual drama. Why cannot they shoot and kill her if she is a terrorist? This is a lesson for those who behind SInhala leadership. Don’t trust a BuddhistSinhala racist politician!

        This case is “deformed” by Yahapalanaya-Police in favour of government MP, Vijayakala who TWICE openly called for resurrection of a banned terrorist group, LTTE, which was regarded as the most ruthless terrorist organization in the world when Prabhakaran was alive.
        Why wasn’t she jailed, I mean “hospitalized????”
        This is too lenient towards a known LTTE resurrector!!!!!
        There is no bail under the Counter-terrorism law under which Army Intelligence Officers are arrested and jailed indefinitely.
        The law is bent purposely in Vijayakala’s favour as, if she was arrested under the Counter-terrorism law, there is no way for her to receive bail.
        Therefore, she was produced before the courts under a “bogus crime” which comes under “organized crimes.”
        Implement one law to everybody, slave government!!!!!
        How come there is one law to LTTE resurrector cum government MP and another law to Army intelligence officials?
        I demand, “alter” ALL the cases where Army officers are arrested and made them come under “organized crimes” so that THEY COULD GO HOME ON BAIL same as terrorist resurrector Vijayakala!!!!
        Thebuvana Police sergeant who was under LTTE custody sometime ago, was remanded denying bail. If Vijayakala can go home, why can’t the Police sergeant go home?
        Implement/enforce one law to every citizen!!!
        Don’t enforce the law based on ethnicity, as one strict, revengeful and unfair law to Sinhalese and one bent, deformed and preferential law to Tamils/Muslims or one law to South and another law to North/East or one preferential law to Government politicians and one vindictive law to political opponents!!!!
        Wimal+Ranaweera were suspended for breaching Parliamentary privileges/rules.
        Vijayakala violated the Constitution blatantly which is the greatest breach of privileges. The Speaker should remove her from the Parliament unless of course he too distorts Parliamentary rules in favour of government MPs.

                Of course not. Wimal and a small group of few others are supporting Gotabhaya and another small group is supporting Basil, making a division in the JO. The moment Wimal extended his support to Gotabhaya as the next President, he lost his own chance. They fell for the trap with their eyes open. Though the number is small, there are a few who support Ranil and Sirisena too. However the majority are not blind like them.
                Mahinda’s best bet is to identify someone who is 100% loyal to him and with whom he can place his trust 100% outside those 4 groups, irrespective of seniority. He has to find a good man among his sidekicks in the JO, somehow.

        – he attacks western forces but HANG ON with western products round the clock…. VIagra, Smart phones, all the high gadgets the western world found are filled in his ROBBED palace within the city limit today.

            Not just few, but almsot everyone should wake up in today s context. I truly believe, if significant portion of the society would do their job properly, media will have to send the message across the nation but with facts. facts are that Rajapkashes and their goons still control the press in the country.
            NOt even facts that could be useful to the patients refrain not bieng published by MEDIA mudalalis. All these just because Rajakashes are vicious and malicious people. THeir power intoxication seem them not guiding well.

      The reason why THUNMULLE WIMALE is not to have been arrested is

      connected with :

      – entire Rajapakshe gentitals are maintained by Thunmulle wimale
      – I don tthink he is being under protection of Premier RW, but for some reasons, the files are being kept in the lowest drawer until today
      – Media – that would bring every soft fart of Rajakshes as if it was a greater achievement seems to be standing on the way.
      – The truth is there are significant number is growing in the country against Wimal Ponna wanse – empty and low level Rhetorics. As could be the case with a CD chart, his nature is no more acceptable by many in the country today. Let s hope a greater change sending Wimal Ponna wanse to the last layer of the hell.

    Statement On Resurgence Of LTTE: Vijayakala Arrested And Released On Bail

    Is she going to be the next UNP chief minister of the Northern Province?
    It is strange she didn’t spend some time in the prison hospital.

    “The Attorney General previously gave the Police directions to proceed with action against the Parliamentarian as there was a criminal element in her statement”

    The Attorney General conveniently did not hear when Wimal Sangili Karuppan Weerawansa said ” Parliament must be bombed from above and swiped out of existence if it dared to pass a new constitution as proposed by the present government” nor did he see monks, Dr Mahinda, Dr Go, … “Gracing” the occasion.

    Arresting of Wijekala clearly demonstrates the blunder of the government’s inability to curb the gruesome crimes unleashed by so-called ‘AVA Group’ in the north. It is hard to believe that the police and army are unable to apprehend this criminal group armed with only knives and swords. It very well justifies the doubt created in the minds of the people that ‘AVA’ group has connections with army or police. This is what reflected in the statement made by Mrs.Wijekala that cost her dearly. One thing is sure that Mrs.Wijekala secured her parliamentary seat for the next general election with an overwhelming majority.

      She never requested the government to “improve” law and order.
      Instead she wanted to take the law and order in her hand i.e. resurrect the terrorist outfit LTTE, bring back Prabhakaran style rule and implement jungle law in the North to stop crimes.
      I have never heard she talking against rape. How could she when she herself helped Vithiya’s rapist and murderer Swiss Kumar to flee?
      I have never heard she uttering a word against “Aava” or similar crime groups who terrorize Tamils in the North or demanding the government to “wipe out” Aava and similar sword and bicycle chain groups once and for all.

    Tamils have to understand that freedom of speech does not apply to them. They have to learn to say ‘yes’ to everything we say as long as they want to remain in the country.

    She claims her comment was taken out of context. It doesn’t matter how bad is sexual harassment against women in Jaffna, she cant say LTTE should revive. Tamils dealt very well with sexual harassment during the final stages of war. When the soldiers raped their women, they kept their mouth shut. Why are they complaining about it now. If you can deal with it then, you can deal with it now.

      It looks like I have hurt the sentiment of some readers here. Let me please clarify what I said.

      I never said what our soldiers did was right or wrong. I am unsure why readers are making inference that I am condoning rapes committed by our war heroes. The account provided by the victims of rape by the army was in fact corroborated with photographic and video evidence, which shows Tamil women were systematically raped. Even soldiers have admitted this to me personally.

      My point is MP’s claim that before the war women were safer in the north has no merit. At least Tamil women are not ‘systematically’ raped now. She claimed that she said the LTTE need to resurrect or revive (depends on which media translation you follow) because women in the north are harassed. Which is BS. Women in the north faced more harassment by the army during LTTE reign

          After our Sinhalese parents sent their military sons in hundreds of thousands to fight against barbarian Prabhakaran and his ferocious cadre to save Tamils in the North, now Tamil Diaspora who were dead silent of the atrocities done by LTTE against their own community for 34 years are talking big.
          Not only Sinhalese, majority Tamils and Muslims are ever grateful to former President Mahinda Rajapaksa and our Army for saving their lives. Let’s us talk to Tamils in the North at the next election to see the results.

              Your description is applied to LTTE cadre not to the Army.
              The majority of those who deserted the Army presumably have suffered from PTSD for being in the jungle, fighting in the rain and hot sun among the sounds of fire and bombs for years, without seeing their loved ones for a longer period. Some like LRRP have even stayed lying down in one place sometimes a month. They have done a great service to the country but they were not looked after post-war. The Defence top brass had paid more attention to rehabilitate captured LTTE cadre than treating PTSD in military. US has many such programmes.

      On the contrary, she never grieved for her husband who was killed by LTTE or called for punishment for the killers.
      Instead she called for resurrection of the LTTE so that they can kill civilians in the North in LTTE style to keep them as hostages in accordance with Prabhakaran’s previous practice.
      How many Sinhalese were killed by LTTE bombs. Did their killers receive punishment? Instead many LTTE cadre who was in custody was released by courts in batches in the recent past.
      Only maniacs will support her in her bid to revive LTTE.
      She doesn’t represent ordinary Tamils. She only represents LTTE. Otherwise she would never have uttered such words and hurt Tamils who lost their sons, daughters, brothers and husbands to LTTE.
      As far as I know, none of Vijayakala’s children were child soldiers or suicide bombers. So she has no regard of the pain that was undergone by the parents of LTTE cadre, child soldiers and suicide bombers who were recruited to LTTE by force.
      Tamils in the North lived in fear for 34 years. Even the thought of resurrecting LTTE would cringed them in fear and we Sinhalese too. There is no way we go through it again. Therefore, even the slightest move towards it should be thwarted.

        Go and read the most amount of Sinhalese ( not the armed forces or police) , so called civilians was around 3000 no more, and many of them were not civilians but criminals, murderers and thugs who were planed in the north and east by the government to kill and terrorise the Tamil population. Many were also deliberately killed by the Sri Lankan special task forces and then their killing blamed on the LTTE , like bus massacre . Compare this to the over 300000 Tamil civilians bombed and killed by the Sri Lankan state and armed forces on the pretext of fighting with the LTTE. They were deliberately targeted . Orphanages, schools, churches, temples, hospitals and civilians in their homes. More than a million displaced or chased away from the country. Stop lying you racist. It was the Sri Lankan state and Sinhalese Buddhist Fascists and armed forces who created all this terror and mayhem and are still doing it in the name of Sinhalese Buddhism. The LTTE is gone but the state terrorism against the Tamil population is continuing

I do believe it’s crucial that our political leaders are able to find common ground so that they can come to gather to solve the important problem we face today. But do I think they’re going to be singing “united we stand” and holding hands? The simple answer is NO.

    Even an idiot knows that Vijayakala’s utterings had been taken 360 degrees out of context and used as a scape goat by these jokers. It seems that the power to be are only happy when there is upheaval and mayhem in the country , so that real issues facing the country could be side lined and ignored .Fooling themselves that it will go away somehow.. Then they can have carnival. on trivial matters . What a state affairs in a country where the majority are trying their best to lead a peaceful existence given the rising in cost of living, drought- climate change, lawlessness to mention a few.
    Give the people a break , they deserve it. Enough is enough. The last thing one wants is another Presidential commission to increase the burden on the exchequer

    An examination as to whether sedition has taken place or not is one thing. The issue as to whether she violated the sixth amendment of the Constitution or not is another. A detailed opinion of the AG is due on the latter aspect of it.

    This sorry exchange of views should make anyone’s hopes for meaningful dialogue on reconciliation soar– out of sight.

    It took treatment in Singapore to make Duminda Silva say “I do not remember”. We foot the massive bill.
    How easy is it to make people ‘I do not remember’? Very very easy! MR has done this to us many times over. UNHRC is a thing of the past. The culture of corruption/nepotism/impunity is now respectable.
    .
    Vijeyakala’s voter support was waning because of her alleged involvement in helping that Swiss Kumar (gang rape video maker) attempt to escape justice.
    She pulls LTTE out of the hat.
    Has she beaten MR hollow? Unlike the blind MR voters, Vijeyakala’s electorate is sophisticated.
    .
    The many comments here prove that the slogan “Reconciliation is unpatriotic” is taking hold. The resurrection by SLPP of the language/religion-divide is on full steam

    If Vijayakala is in prison now, then that is good. Time to unleash some drunk prisoners to serve instant justice. We cannot waste Sinhalese tax payers money on prolonged court cases. We have wasted enough money on Tamil troublemakers already.

      Do you mean justice like the Welikada Prison case by Gothabaya.
