Gotabaya’s Passport Impounded

The passport of former Defence Secretary and Rajapaksa sibling Gotabaya Rajapaksa, has been impounded, as per a request made by the CID.

The Galle Magistrate had impounded Gotabaya’s passport as well as passports of former Navy Commander Admiral Somathilake Dissanayake, Rakna Arakshaka Lanka (Pvt.) Ltd Director Major General (retd) K. Egodawela and Avant Garde Managing Director Manjula Yapa, from leaving the country.

The CID had requested the travel restriction to be imposed in order to facilitate the investigation into the gloating armoury that was raided in January, which Avant Garde has claimed ownership to.

Correction: An earlier version of this story inaccurately stated that “A travel restriction has been imposed on former Defence Secretary and Rajapaksa sibling Gotabaya as per a request made by the CID.”

      This ban would not have happened if the judge did not think that the white vans were garaged.
      This is how the previous govt abused democracy by bringing fear into the judiciary.

        Burt,

        The problem becomes easier if the Police can trace the drivers
        and the white vans and people will come to know,how many innocent people were taken and killed in the name of security.Police should
        put their intelligence people on the job and it cannot be that difficult to find the drivers,if Police work seriously on the job,
        as people will certainly cooperate in finding the culprits as this
        is blue murder. If the drivers were from the forces, nothing can be done but the owners of white vans can be questioned.

        Most of the killed were Tamils, so,I suppose there is no hurry to find them as Police is busy taking never ending statements from
        suspects.

        This is a Joke.
        Gotha can travel on his US passport if he wants to.

        Tamils For Justice would welcome him in the USA and there shyould be due process for Gota in the USA including IRS.

          “Tamils For Justice would welcome him in the USA and there shyould be due process for Gota in the USA including IRS.”

          Didn’t Gota travel to USA twice within the past 6 years. He returned unscathed on both occasions. Were those members of TFJ sleeping?

            Correct me if i’m wrong , didn’t Gota travel to USA representing SL government ? i’m sure he would have double checked and got an assurance of his safe return from US embassy Colombo before leaving SL.

        It depends on how many birthdays and names he and his wife had declared. Then take your combinations. Seems to be the done thing under the previous regime, the new era of international travel on the Magic Carpet!

        A US passport that he obtained by claiming Asylum after vacating post and fleeing the country is of NO use now. This coward cannot land in USA, he will be hauled by the Human rights activists and produced in a court of law, after which he may see the light of day only through a hole in his cell…. at Guantanamo bay in Cuba. GOOD RIDDANCE !

        Ranil should NOT intervene in this case…He may cover the asses of the Rajapassaas and deny Justice.. SF might be laffing his ass off… Karma Is a Byatch… and it bites back so so hard… This megalomaniac should be imprisoned. He is guilty of murder, extorting money from Businessmen, Killing of Journalists, White vanning people whom he thought was a threat… He intimidated everyone… Now this SOB is a loner…

        I am awed as to how the CID went to his House to get a statement, do other civilians get the same luxury? HECK NO… and this IDIOT said he would answer questions at a time as and when he feels appropriate.. That was a slap in the face of the CID…IF I were one of the officers, Id have hand cuffed him and taken him to a cell… locked him up until he proved his innocence..

      Don’t do anything to Gota. Just send him to back to USA and they will take very good care of this man.

      They will arrest him at the Air port.

      Or he has a brother (not Basil) and just inform USA embassy in Colombo to check his bank accounts and assets. The brother will also come running to Srilanka.

      Now it is high time to investigate “White vanning ” was solely handley by Gota and his pvt adminsitration ? Whether this was just a rumour or what was behind all these should be made clear to the nation by current adminsitration. In our country there are all kind of rumours that spread with light velocity regardless of its contents. That has become a gag in society today. However, White vanning has tremoured the nation – but nobody knows really who is really behind that yet. May be Gota and MR had been carrying out that as their common mission.
      So, if the charges are there, I dont mind this man s being impouded. He is an another citizen whatever is said to have done in terms of terror elemination in the country. Besides, it is the real Karma self proclaimed war credit to reverse on him as making him an another alleged criminal…. I think winner of all these are the general sarath fonseka. He had all patience to face whatever the physical or mental harm revengfully set on him. He should be a great personality acutally. His performance specailly since war is no longer there is exemplary to anyone who would respect law and order above everything.

      why not Basil become the centre focus for all the mess while questioning Gota ?

      Why the authorities stay mum in tersm of Basil the man who left immediately after the election results were reported on the day 8th of January.

    When I here this man’s name, I always remember those captured people who were tied to coconut trees and cut slowly by blade. Gotha & co have to settle a ship load of Karma. MR is guilty as well because people elected him and he appointed this lunatic. Now Runil is trying to save these guys, Ranil saved murderer MR from the arrest once upon a time. If every politician save each other in turn, how our country is going to prosper. This time Runil and Mithiri have to put a stop to that culture of saving murderers and gang leaders – people think ( Mahabaratham )

        I think Buruwanse cesspits will become fully shut soon after BC finds all the supportive arguments to brand him as one another minister to have abused tax payers funds. This is being investigated right now – yessterday he was called and questioned by BC, wait and see how all these woudl affect on his kind of politics. The problem is there are masses among the holopoloi of the country just enjoy his kind of sinahala terms rather than thinking twice. Alone the way Wimal Buruanse behaved in the stage attacking current prez then was beyond all morals and ethics.

Ranil has been exposed in earlier occasions and this time too , his henchmen CB governor , Long John and other cohorts getting exposed day by day ,MY3 knows what is really going on behind the curtain so that he will make sure that Mafia family gets the right treatment before they raise their ugly heads again !

      Until a book published which says otherwise, it was Gotta’s war?. Isnt it?

      Knowing this monster, if not for surrender by the LTTE brave leaders, the killing would not have stopped with the surrendered, but would have been a massacre. The alarm bell was ringing when he was repeating the number count of the civilians trapped, saying there were only about 160,000 trapped. Funny explanation he gave for arriving at his figure was, the number of tents able to counted from air were some 40000 old and multiplying it by 4 persons per tent. He could have smoked the NFZ, had the forces faced some resistance at the last phase of the war. Even the West might know this, that was probably the reason that they frantically worked out a surrender, sent Nambiar guy he spoke with KP from the airport and he in turn talked with VP and all, and by doing it they diminished the number of deaths and stopped a carnage.

    Dear Paul,

    You must remember that this fellow and MARA jointly threatened and stopped the Maha Sangha Mela subsequent to the arrest of General Sarath Fonseka on trumped up charges and he was dragged like a dog in to the prison cell.

    If this fellow is proven to have committed the crimes, nothing should stop from arresting and sentencing him.

    In my opinion our Nation was ungrateful towards Sarath Fonseka at that time and am sure will not be fools this time, when this fellow will be sentenced for his crimes.

    There is nothing to stop Gotabhaya obtaining Travel Documents from the US Embassy as entitled to as an American citizen. I trust the CID has obtained the co-operation of USA and Interpol which cannot be uncertain as Gotabhaya might already be in their radar in the UN’s investigations on the War Crimes. This is Karma catching up. Some years ago, a family of squatters moved into my friend’s house occupied by his relatives. Gota’s goons made sure the squatters were not evicted as the owner was abroad and not in a position to seek justice or cross swords with Gota’s all embracing power.

      True he can get a travel document, better yet a US passport as he us a citizen after being granted his asylum., BUT did he state all facts and was the truth told? by now the USINS( Homeland security) may have pulled up his application for asylum and noted untruths… Since he Obtained a US passport as an immigrant and NOT a native( someone born in US) his US passport CAN be revoked…

      By now there may be a few cases filed against this loser in US courts… SO he avoided going back immediately unlike Basil… who also should be held responsible for plundering the wealth of the country….along with Namal, Yoshitha, Shashendra, Sajin Vaas, and of course the BIG man…MR.. lock em up and throw away the keys…

    It is stupid to impound the passport because gota never ran away from the country.

    This is simply Sri lankan police don;t have their own mindset. One group was like sloths and did not do anything because they were in a different political mindset.

    This group is trying to prove to the govt that they are working. So, they do witch hunting.

    IT may take a decade police to have their own mindset.
