The Gota-Ranil Pact: Revealed

Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe helped ex Defence Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa to obtain a new passport through the intervention of his Internal Affairs Minister Wajira Abeywardena Colombo Telegraph learns.

The revelation puts a new twist on wide speculation for months now that the current prime minister and Gotabaya Rajapaksa are “thick as thieves,” a senior UNP MP said.

Wickremesinghe also knew that the former defence secretary would not have a problem relinquishing his US citizenship well ahead of the 2019 presidential election, sources told Colombo Telegraph. It is learnt that the Prime Minister had ensured Rajapaksa that the path would be smoothed for him in Colombo if he managed to get US authorities to release him in time for the poll.

Colombo Telegraph learns that Abeywardena, whose ministry includes the Registrar of Persons and Immigration Department, intervened to ensure Rajapaksa obtained a new National ID and passport the next working day after he received his certificate of citizenship renunciation from the US Embassy in Colombo. Details have already come to light that Gotabaya Rajapaksa’s passport was issued without him ever being personally present at the Department of Immigration and that his documents had been accepted after counters had been closed.

The revelations are further confirmed by the news that Chief of Staff to the Prime Minister Sagala Ratnayaka was at Rajapaksa’s Mirihana residence on Sunday (4th August) and seen by UNP chairman Kabir Hashim when he sought to pay the former defence sectretary to inquire after his health. Hashim saw Ratnayaka skulking around the house and rushed out after a quick greeting since the pair appeared to be in deep discussion.

PM Wickremesinghe appears to have struck a deal with Rajapaksa to ensure his protection and survival after the election. Wickremesinghe wants to keep control of the UNP and continue as Opposition Leader even under a Gotabaya Presidency.

Colombo Telegraph can also reveal that Wickremesinghe’s niece Ishini Wickremesinghe who currently serves as a consultant to the PM’s chief of staff, made open declarations during the October 2018 failed coup that if her uncle was not made the UNP candidate, her family would back Gotabaya Rajapaksa’s presidential campaign.

Supporters of Gotabaya Rajapaksa have similarly threatened Mahinda Rajapaksa that if Gotabaya is not given the SLPP candidacy, they too will rebel against the former president and throw their support behind Ranil Wickremesinghe.

Gotabaya Rajapaksa, through Dilith Jayaweera, is very close to bond scam mastermind Arjun Aloysius, who has promised to bankroll the Rajapaksa campaign in exchange for a promise that his family and Ranil Wickremesinghe will be protected if Gotabaya becomes President.

When Gotabaya Rajapaksa was surprised in a LA car park by summons in a case filed by the daughter of murdered Sunday Leader Editor Lasantha Wickrematunge, he called Dilith Jayaweera who was in Colombo at the time for advice. Ishini Wickremesinghe who was with Jayaweera reportedly assured Rajapaksa that she would speak with her uncle and ensure officials in Sri Lanka do not cooperate with the civil suit accusing Rajapaksa of murdering Lasantha. Attempts were made through the Prime Minister”s office to influence officials at the AG’s Department into ensuring public officials including the Police do not cooperate with Ahimsa Wickrematunge’s lawyers.

During the coup, Ishini Wickremesinghe helped to arrange the meeting between Gotabaya Rajapaksa and Ranil Wickremesinghe at Temple Trees. To date no one knows what transpired during the closed door one-on-one pow wow.

Wickremesinghe’s niece is also unofficially the head of propaganda for the Prime Minister’s presidential campaign.

A Gotabaya presidency puts scores of activists, politicians and journalists at risk of violence and intimidation. “Ranil only cares about his own post election survival. He does not seem to worry about how a Gota victory will impact those who fought to bring the UNP to power in January 2015 and August 2015. The extent of the violence Gotabaya is capable of is already public knowledge. We are finished, not only politically, but our lives will be ended,” said one terrified UNP MP who did not wish to be named. (By TB Bambaradeniya)

        Brilliant Reporting! Thanks CT Editors for a great job!

        This explains Sri Lanka’s Lost Decade of Development since war with LTTE ended – the American-brokered the UNP-SLF/PP, Ranil-Rajapaksa corruption racket, with a swollen Cabinet that has turned he Parliament into a Cesspit of Corruption — all in the name of (fake) “Reconciliation” – to set up US military bases and an EU NATO garbage Hub in Sri Lanka.
        This Rani-Rajapaksa partnership brokered by USA is to destroy strategic over sight institutions (Central Bank, Survey Dept. Customs and Emigration, CEB etc.) and and asset strip SOEs after killing them with corrupt cronies to set up a US military base in Lanka.
        The US is like Dr. Octopus in Spider Man – squeezing and strangling Sri Lanka and its puppet Bondscam Ranil and US citizen Gota are 2 sides of the same coin -both must share the same prison cell for corruption and looting the country! The US game is – Heads I win, Tails you loose.
        Either way Lanka is screwed in the bi-partisan UNP-SLFP corruption racket with a massive Cabinet of clowns under the guise of “Reconciliation” with Sumanthiran, Sambanthan and JVPs AKD also bought by USAID-MCC funds to tun Lanka into a US-EU-NATO military base and garbage hub, while it is being asset stripped.
        But Sri Lanka belongs to the youth and younger generation and these corrupt politicians over 6 must be banned from Contesting. Where are the US-EU funded NGO ladies to hold placards for Change and Youth to take over and lead?!!

    Some parts of this might be true. But I think this is a fiction based on the fact that most of the information are exclusive only to Ranil, Ishini and Gota. And I don’t think any of them are insane to reveal this to media lol. And also this contains so many assumptions. We can consider that this is yet another conspiracy theory of leading politicians popping up these days…

      Almost anyone can get a passport like this if you know somebody. I know enough such cases. I know a case when SB Dissnaike, not even a minsiter anymore, simply phone someone and arranged for a dual citizenship passport with virtually no documents. This is making a mountain out of a molehill.

    The entire story is good for National Inquirer, who still publish Elvis is still alive. Just a bunch of gossips to tarnish the image of Gotabaya Rajapakse. Politicians do not have to be enemies, they might carry different policies, but they do not have to be arch enemies. Only uneducated politicians fight like enemies without understanding their role. Anyone who can prove their citizenship and the identity can get a passport on the same day. Dept. of Immigration has the same day service, you have to pay extra for that, do not have to go to the PM or the Minister. This sort of stories could take the readership away from Colombo Telegraph. It shows the ignorance of the writer and the publisher.

      Besides Hopper Sirisena has employed two new Alugosuwa for the same purpose. What do you suggest we do with the surplus hangman?

      Beware the Sri Lankan establishment is so efficient it will hang you by your b***s before you make hangman’s knot to hang your first victim.

    One wonders why CT is berserk-sensational here.
    LayLankans knew all along that our passport office is not in the control of the GoSL of the time. Genuine-False-Lankan-Passports are gettable through political contacts. Wimal Weerawansa family is said to be in possession of several ‘diplomatic’ passports.
    The most infamous case is the Sinhala name ‘diplomatic’ passport issued to Vinayagamoorthy Muralitharan, also known as Karuna Amman, was the leader of the Tamil Tigers splinter-group Tamil Makkal Viduthalai Pulikal. The Sinhala ‘diplomat’ was personally escorted to a London bound plane by a VVIP. The mission was to control the grieving Tamil Diaspora.
    Karuna Amman was apprehended on arrival, spilt the beans, spent time in Her Majesty’s Prison, sent back.
    Surprise….Surprise. Muralitharan was made a Vice-President of SLFP and a Minister with the unusual perks. He is waiting to live happily ever after.
    By the way, RW has claimed his part in Karuna’s defection from LTTE

    Media openly reported that LA consul worked with ITJP’s agents to deliver the summons at the supermarket parking lot, to Old Brother Prince, In Ahimsa lawsuit. Old Brother Prince was known to have amiable relationship with Ambassador Robert Blake. He is still doing negotiation with American diplomats. We have no clues how Old Brother Prince had got released all chain and robes holding him, to have his citizenship relinquished. In other words Ahimsa case and US citizenship are two birds for Old Brother Prince, in the recent times. It appears to be very powerful, Olympic move. If that colossal storm continues, election is complete sweep for him.
    At the start when New King asked Old King not to place a Slap Party Candidate, as excuse, Old Pointed his Brother Prince’ s defiance and rebelliousness. Now all are Longleat Hedge Maze- You don’t have any idea of how to get in or get out. We have no idea who is where. Only thing we can guarantee is all pre-arrangements needed are done to from another Asian Miracle (Yahapalanaya or Chitanta) government to form.
    Here is an unusual air, which is Green side supporting Old Brother Prince and Blue side supporting Vaalaiththodam JR, is developing.
    TNA didn’t support Ranil in 2015. The reason is they wanted a better quality person, a honest Statesman, not a fox from the Wildlife Sanctuary. But the truth is no such one is there in Lankawe. We are not sarcastic or comical on this; if have doubt ask Chandrika; she will tell the truth. (This is why we call Ranjan, Hurini, Geetha……… for presidency; at least we don’t cheat my eyes; they true pretty figures.) TNA has said already, this time too, they will not be going by party, but by person. They did not rule out Ranil or Old Brother Prince, who a man comes from the family they opposed last time. Further TNA is not in UNP’s Democratic Front.

      Mullayuran the LTTE goat says ” The reason is they wanted a better quality person, a honest Statesman, not a fox from the Wildlife Sanctuary”
      So they supported Sarath Fonseka in 2010 and Sirisena in 2015, as the better man. At least Rajapaksa got rid of the maniac Rabhakaran who ethnically clensed our people from Jaffn at gunpoint, even though the Muslims were the dominant people in the North when the British captured it. Read captain Percival’s book regarding the period 1800 to 1820 when he was living there in the service of the British Monrach.

        Most probably your captain Percival was high on ganja, frequenting a Muslim brothel in the north and being dominated by lying Muslim harlots like you and started scribbling nonsense. According to fake Arab converted South Indian immigrant low castes , Muslims dominated the north and constantly quote some Captain Percival, and his comic book , however Sinhalese Buddhist Fascists have another fairy tale , contradicting the story of these fake Arab low caste Dravidian converts from India. The north was solely populated by Sinhalese Buddhists and quote other British Captains that no one has heard of and extracts from comic books supposed to be written by these unheard characters. Captain Mooney Mooney , Captain Tin Tin and many others. In contrast reliable historical sources and historians and as per all official historical records from ancient to the times of the Portuguese , Dutch the British and even the Mahavamsa comic book , the North and East of the island was the land of the Eelam Tamils and it was populated by Tamils and ruled by Tamil kings and chiefs. Occasionally a Sinhalese king may capture and rule parts of these lands but it was short lived. It more the other way around , the Tamils ( largely from South India ) capturing and ruling the Sinhalese and their lands for centuries, resulting in many of the Sinhalese dynasties and aristocracy having a South Indian origin. All population statistics from the 18th century onwards until independence prove the north and east was more or less exclusively population by Tamils with insignificant number of Sinhalese and Muslims. There is no record of Muslims/Sinhalese chiefs kings , or ancient mosques or anything in the north or east. Even the ancient Buddhist ruins in the north and east are Tamil not Sinhalese.

        Thanks Bodin,

        History of Tamils is not the book you like to read. History is not the one HLDM writes. European evaluation of that “Sinhalese are Aryans and Mahavamsa is true” has been knocked out in 3rd- 4th centuries, even before Muhammad was born and started to write Tamils’ history in Arabic. If Muslim had lived in North that time, when Portuguese captured it, they would have said “Allahu Akbar” and carried out Qurbani at the altar of Jesus (The one you did to Tamil Christians on 4/21). Southern Muslims were saved by Tamil king because of their generational trade connections with Mapillai Muslims.

        Every Road, every village in the North has Tamil, Pali and Sanskrit Names. Nothing is in Arabic. We know our History. Hakeem and Rishard went to Geneva to save Old King from War Crime Accusation, putting their hands on the shoulders of Sinhala Supporting actresses, but have not achieved anything so far. What Pirapaharan did with Northern Muslims, will be proved when it needed. That time you bring you Muslim spies to save your Hero from UN Electric Chair. Until that, stay home and guard your women with Niqab, so when Old Brother Prince’s Grease Monsters come back, won’t kidnap the Muslim Women.

        Stupid Modaya! if couldn’t pick anything in CT so far, why do you waste your time? Can’t you pick some Dates fruits in Kattankudy Street, for the Town Council? (Tamil name again – It says the Tamil king saved the Muslims at that point)

        https://www.jihadwatch.org/2019/07/sri-lanka-muslims-order-christian-tamils-to-convert-or-move-out-of-traditional-homeland

        Very disturbing news in eastern Sri Lanka. Tamil Hindus and Christians and the Tamilised Hindu Veddah of the east are the indigenous population of the east . The east was 100% Tamil Hindu and ruled by Tamil Hindu Vannimai chiefs. These converted low caste Tamil Muslims from South India now calling themselves Moor/Arab only arrived in the east a few centuries ago ,as refugees and assylum seekers fleeing persecution from the Portuguese. No one wanted them. The Sinhalese and the eastern Tamils took pity on them and gave them refuge. Now they have bred like rats and with funds from certain Islamic nations and with encouragement from the Sinhalese state and armed forces , are now persecuting the very same people who gave them refuge.

          What a load of RUBBISH. The caption of the so-called article is:

          “Muslim extremists order Christian Tamils to convert or move out of traditional homeland in Sri Lanka.”

          But, the ONLY instance mentioned is of a “Hindu Tamil rickshaw driver Jyothinathan Chandrasekhar” who is supposed to have refused to convert and fled the area!.

          And, quite Surprisingly, he is a “ricksaw driver”. Are there any “rickshaws” anywhere in Sri Lanka? Does any body use rickshaws to travel these days where motor vehicles are aplenty?

          The source of this Outrageous Hoax, goes by the name Barnabas Fund, which is obviously a Blatantly Islamophobic Mafia, based in the UK. Disgusting fellows.

    Old Brother Prince this time liked by all or not rejected anybody other than Mano Ganesan & Yasmin Sooka. Old King, Communist Pakaya, New King, Sampanthar, Hakeem, Shakthika Sathkumara, Ranil, US, China, India, UN, UNHRC all are in that. It might be the fear of if he comes, having opposed him would leave in dangerous situation or the hope if he comes then they too can share with the MiG harvest with him. Whoever support or not, Old Brother Prince, so far, appearing like the Sinhala Mythology Promised, Prince Kumaraiya, has already come.

    It is not we the average (forget about Biryani and Arrack seeking Modayas) puzzling looking at this maze, even the master minds like Hakeem are struggling to solve this for their advantage. Hakeem and Rishard was in SLFP and supporting Old King during Jan 2015 election. It is not purely the taste of the fruit they enjoyed with the criminal Old Royals, but fearing of they ending up in prison for all the crime these Muslim Leaders committed. Rishard is a violent criminal; scared less of Prison, but the sneaky one Hakeem feared even in the nightly dreams Old King coming to his house with Kumary Corey, carrying handcuffs with them. So they celebrated the Jan 2015 election result inside the toilet they were hiding. Now the leeches have sucked too much from the victim, Ranil and he, in the eyes of Sinhala Buddhist, is a walking corpse without any power or ability to manage anything. UNP back benchers are saying in UNP meeting that the King’s soldier Ranil would be able to put together the Humpty Dumpty, the UNP, which had fallen because for the last 4 ½ year it sat on the wall but did nothing. So Muslim Leadership has to swim across to change the ship, to avid sinking with it. Ranil wants to sign a deed knowing that if his candidate loses, the, the cranes will be flying over to fresh lake.

  • 2

    This time, the problem Muslim leadership facing is very obscure, a black cat in the dark room. They are not sure if they have a problem, but they are sure they are in great danger. Ranil have included them in his Democratic Front in time, fearing they cross border in case his enemy wins the election. (At this time Ranil’s enemy can be defined as a UNP candidate, undesirable to Ranil.) When Hakeem and Rishard were advised by Ranil to resign as a Minister’s Union, Rishard liked it Hakeem didn’t. Rishard said Old Royals are anger with him because of his cheating on the Coup support, after promising. But Hakeem noticed Old Brother Prince is still out of the leash of Old King so we wanted to negotiate with Old Brother Prince in this election. Now Ranil is creating a suspicion of him collecting the UNP Front’s support and pledging it to Old Brother Prince, In order to make sure that Vaalaiththodam Jr like candidate would not win.
    This is the Black Cat for Muslim leaders: If there are two, as UNP & SLFP, only they can guess the winning candidate and do their usual negotiation. If Ranil prepares a Front only to place a candidate from SLFP (Old Royals), then there are no “Two Parties” for the Muslim leaders to do their bargain. They like Old Brother Prince. They are prepared to negotiate with him. They like Karu, Junior or even Ranil. They are already to negotiate with anyone of them as soon as one is declared as candidate. But how could they do any bargain with anybody if Ranil takes the whole support of the Democratic Front and pledge it to Old Brother Prince he does his private negations with him? That is why Muslim leaders are not ready to sign the deed until UNP select one candidates of its own.

None of these conspiracy theories will come to see day light. Gota will be the SLPP candidate with MR’s blessings. UNP candidate will most likely be Ranil unless Sajith’s camp can stage a coup. My gut feeling is Sajith will fold and wait for another day. He has no guts, vision or the Brains 🧠 to face Ranil. This would be the last chance for Sajith anyways.

    I heard, Ranil is worried that Sajith Pemadasa would replace him. I think, Ranil wanted to replace himself with his TNL owner brother. But, TNL owner is upset with Sajith because Sajith spoiled all the plans. Probably, Sajith got to know this thinking that what they do is to remove him from UNP and that is why Sajith came into the presidential race. I think Matirhipala sirisena also knows this. He gets information, I suppose, from every side as Mahinda Rajapakse did.

    Let’s be serious.
    We are heading for a dangerous situation.
    In a strange turn of events, the slave government has laid the red carpet to Gotabhaya!
    Birds of a feather, flock together.
    Gotabhaya will take from where Ranil and Maithri stopped.
    Gotabhaya is not a Statesman.
    He will never be.
    During his tenure as the Defence Secretary, he has proved that manipulation, suppression and intimidation are his tactics in controlling a civil society.
    Sri Lanka is too precious to be put in the hands of Gotabhaya who has no heart or knowledge as to how to solve civil society issues.
    For example; molestation and cruelty to women and children were on the rise during his time as the Defence Secretary.
    In 2012, there had been staggering 8749 cases of underage rape, child molestation, sexual exploitation and violence against women and children, which is still a record.
    The actual number could be much more than this, as the Police Website has concealed the statistics in that particular year.
    In other words, women and children will be in a very unsafe and a dangerous situation, worse than now, if Gotabhaya becomes the next President.
    The societal collapse and the decline of the rule of law began and spread under his tenure as the Defence Secretary which has come to a point now under the slave government that even the Judiciary succumbs to political pressure, openly. There is no doubt that the pattern will continue under Gotabhaya.
    Moreover, warning bells are ringing with the news that he will form a private security detail comprised of retired Army officials. For what? I don’t know, maybe he wants them to intimidate his opponents so that he will have an easy path to Presidency!
    I insist, ALL CITIZENS should rise against a military rule under Gotabhaya.

      Dear Champa,

      “Gotabhaya is not a Statesman.”

      Sri Lanka does not need a Statesman now. It needs someone who can “get things done” without going on foreign jaunts, running bond scams, or selling land to Americans. And don’t forget the Wahhabi threat in the East. Gothabaya is the right man to send these buggers on the one way white van ride to meet their 72 virgins.

    Wonder if Ranil knows that he is one of the most hated people in Sri lanka. ??????????????
    He may be aware that he is hated and the very looks of him may want some people to bash his ugly face against the wall.
    He knows that he is hated and despised by the honest segment of society and that is why the scumbag acts in a slimy and crooked manner. The bugger is the mirror image of the devil and his actions are similar as that of the devil who knows that he is hated by the honest and God fearing part of society.
    The man is perverse and hard to be corrected and his eyes are not that of a wise man as he walks in darkness. If in his political career he had labored wisely, skillfully, and successfully he would today be a political personality who would have been welcomed in any home under any roof be it poor, middle class or rich.
    The man is drunk with a upper class intoxication from his school days and will be only free of it when in his coffin. He will die a very uncomfortable and painful death because of all his crooked ways and his soul will be beyond rotting. No sympathy will he deserve.

    I like to throw a question at so called gentlemen Gota and Ranil , Rathana and Gnanasara believed to be himi , Are they doing the right thing for the country and Buddhism. The whole country should be behind them for their answer. One needs the votes or sacrifice for the country. Teach your peasents and folks about these thieves.

    Let’s twist a village saying “Vedama keranda bari nang….Rajakama kerapang”
    Politics is the most lucrative business today. The days those wonderful and honourable Amarasuriya millionaires of Galle sacrificed their immense wealth to serve the poor is no more. Since the late-1980s it is those who swindle the District Development Funds, steal the poor doles of the poorest from Samurdhi funds and build castles, drug-traffickers, chain snatchers and the like. Men like Dahanayake, MD Banda, Wanninayake are only distant memories.

    The more enterprising of today’s “leaders” subvert the system by conniving with leaders and other parties in that old game of “you scratch my back – and I yours” The arrangements seem to be work to perfection because all this scum survive and survive handsomely. Not just that. They train their off-spring to cheat the people, the country’s meagre resources and live splendidly. All that is needed is the presence and support of a few crooked monks around them with connections to an influential Mahanayaka or two – and you are in business. Believe me, my intent is not to sully the name of the Sinhala Buddhist hierarchy – there can be a few clean and honourable there living by the words of the Buddha. But you will be fooling yourself if you think that everything is well in the Order.

    Poor Nandasena..He hasn’t even got the full beat of his Ticker…

    Why would Dr Ranil want to tarnish his name by associating with Nandasena. especially on the eve of his new Grand Alliance with the Srilankan Muslim Congress, All Ceylon Mukkal Muslim Congress Thamil Peoples Party . Jathika Hela Urumaya . Rajith & Son Party and even Arjuna Ranatunga Party..

    What a formidable Combination, No wonder Dr Ranil told the Media that he now can not only lead the UNP but the whole Country to Victory..

    I know our great majority of the 70 % Inhabitant majority and their Monks can’t expect much from this New Alliance which is made up of Dr Ranil’ s Elite, Anglican and Vellala Faction plus LTTE supporters , Ranjan Ramanayaka, and Ibrahim and Zaharan supporters.

    I don’t know how our Brother Cardinal will feel about this Victory?…

    Wonder what happened to Sampathar’s TNA?..

      The above photo symbolises “marriage of convenience” .
      This is a sham marriage between Dr Gota DSce and Dr Ranil in order to get Sri Lankan citizenship.

      “Why would Dr Ranil want to tarnish his name by associating with Nandasena.”

      Always remember Sun Tzu who once said “Keep your friends close and your enemies closer.” Ranil may be a practitioner of this extreme form of deception, (Karuna split, ceasefire agreement (CFA) with LTTE, and eventual demise of your hero VP and his LTTE).

      Ranil didn’t mind tarnishing his name when he signed CFA.
      He would not mind tarnishing his name once again if he could marginalize Gota (the national hangman) politically and cut him to size.

        Shows how little u r aware of the secret wheeler dealings in the corridors of power. As they say, “there’s none so blind as he who refuses to see.”
        My dear boy, there are many many other secrets between Ranil and MR but those dont concern us.
