UPFA Parliamentarian Udaya Gammanpila was arrested this morning by the Police Special Investigation Unit.

Udaya Gammanpila

Udaya Gammanpila

He was arrested over a charge where he had allegedly used his power of attorney to sell shares in an Australian company.

Before, his arrest, he was ordered to appear before the police this month to give a statement on the issue.

An Australian Businessman Brayan Shadik last year said that he would file action against MP Udaya Gammanpila over illegal sale of shares worth more than one million Australian dollars that the Australian businessman had invested in Sri Lanka.

However convening a media briefing in Colombo last year Pivituru Hela Urumaya leader MP Udaya Gammanpila said that a false propaganda was being spread saying that he had, by preparing a false document, fraudulently misappropriated the shares that the businessman concerned had held in a commercial bank.

Watch the video below for Australian Businessman Brayan Shadik’s version:

    I am so saddened that the media (both electronic and print media) in this country considers that allowing press coverage to what these dishonest corrupt politicos utter, not just this person, but Weerawansa, Rajapakse, Sirisena, Wickramasinghe and the list goes on and on, is very important in the ‘National Interest’, affording some form of credibility for their dishonest conduct.

    In my candid and humble view, as long as this evil media attitude continues no one can stop mother Lanka from bleeding to death.

      Hi guys, I am from Germany. I have been watching Satana or other program to keep me updated about the progress of lanka. But I am telling you this guy Gonmanpila has always been whitewashing any bad guys. That has now become to the levels one would say- beyond all ethics and morals.

      To tell you the truth – I never thought that people would elect him that way – but we perfectly know that masses inthe country woudl do anything and everything for just a rise ration… or few bucks being spent to them – knowing that nature but politicians must be genuine. Else, those poltiicians should be away from lanken active politics. Gonmanpila would do anything and everything to whitewash most abusive Rajapakshes. We are not reborn, how this guy defended himself at the time, he WORKED on the public stages with Gotabaya Rajapakshe… latter was a punishable act, but he never made a public apology, then begging 100 rps for his campaigns, but telling a lie not having funds for his campaigning – all these should be high grate lies – I really thought the man the manner he spoke should be genuine at least at the begining. but later, now with the current video why should this foreigner make a public statements against Gonmanpila if he is that clean.
      These men are highly corrupted basta…. Lanken law and order should work to the very same manner Germans are upto. Then only we can see a cleaner future for politics in the country. Today is no too late.
      Please President, PM enforce rigorous laws to bring any culprits regardless of their status, that will be the door operning for our youth to see it right and spend a law bound disiplined life – and makin the nation a civilized nation.

    Corrupt B.
    Talks as if he is above board .
    Now the public can b aware of his crooked tactics.
    He should be sacked as an Member of Parliament.
    President Sirisena, everyone you have chosen apart from the UNP are corrupt, bankrupt individuals.
    That B talks of the Governor of the CBSL.
    Like the other 2 losers & corrupt politicians SB & DR AMUNUGAMA.
    SB TOOK over a house in C7 left by an eminent Dr to the Medical faculty by crooked means when he was in MR s cabinet .
    No inquiry everything has been swept under the carpet,
    AMUNUGANA thinks just because he can talk English we don’t know what he has been upto with the Rajapakses,

    This video should be given maximum media and TV coverage. Here is first hand evidence of the crooked politician Gammanpilla who should be jailed for life. This criminal fits in well with the Rajapakse clan and group of politicos well known for their corruption, thievery and plunder of resources. So glad that this thief is to be prosecuted. No wonder this Gamannpilla is hoping that his friend Mahinda will come back to power and he can continue to then enjoy the loot. Baluwansa and crowd better look out. This is only the tip of the iceberg. I wonder what the synthetic lawyer Namal has to say about this!!!

        Ditta damma wedaneeya has punished Gonmanpila for all what he has commited in recent past.

        This man has no shame.

        He dares to cover anything and everything to be in the the good books of Rajaakshes. No matter what his sympathisers would feel…. disgraceful man.. by all means.

        I hate the bugger since I know that he publicly support Rajapakshe goons.
        His political knowledge is similar to a teenage person.

        But for lanken stupid majorities, all these will not count.
        They are born stupid as if clay fed crocodiles, would reelect the bugger for anotehr few terms.

    We haven’t yet heard GammanP’s defence. But on balance of probability I know who to believe.

    Another warning to those who ‘invest’ in Sri Lanka.

    The watchword for potential investors in SL is ‘Invest to divest’.

    The bookies have opened the betting, and the favourite is Gamman P, to walk free.

    To anyone thinking of ‘investing’ in Sri Lanka; think hard, then thing again, then you might just escape the vultures that circle every potential and actual investor.

      “Where do bees gather if not around a pot of honey?”

      Sorry I don’t want to answer this specific question as my livelihood depends on collecting and distributing honey.

      Don’t you think the government is making a mistake by arresting, holding in and releasing the greatest patriots of all?

      The bar association MUST come forward n make arrangements to rip him off his licence to practice law.

      A scoundrel like Gammanpila should never be in parliament nor hold ANY public office…

    If you understand body language you will know that Gamanpila is a liar and deceiver. He can never make eye contact and his eyes constantly moves while he speaks. Wimal and Gamanpila are like twins. They project themselves as pro nationalists but in fact work against the betterment of the country.

    I feel extremely sorry for this Australian investor. They come to our country with hope to do good business and people like Gammanpila only know how to rob them.

    I hope the full extent of the law is used on this rogue. May he never be released.

    Well…..guess, Gammanpila merely advised him on Lankan stocks, shares and bonds in line Lankan Nationhood status.

    But in the end, the whole thing boils down to Arjuna Mahendran stocks, shares and bonds, vs. the Nationalist Heroes working to secure Lankan’s Sovereignty.

    And the Aussie guy would have lost big time in that bond scandal.

      Are you defending this white collar (white shirt and such) thief, who collected 10 rupee contribution from people for his election?

      Can someone please tell us his net worth before and after his participation in Rajapakse Government?

      He is not a simple guy. A bureaucrat, who is not supposed to participate in politics, His Excellency Gota Rajapakse launched his election campaign publicly.

        Donations towards his campaign are not supposed to come back – they were used for his campaign. He lost, and then the donors kept demanding their money back. Most ridiculous thing.

      If someone advised him on Lankan stocks, shares and bonds he would have doubled his income. Instead, the Aussie guy trusted this Sinhala-Buddhist thief Gammanpila and gave him the power of attorney and got all his wealth robbed.

        Yeah, because the honorable Sinhala Buddhist bonds were overridden by insider information of the Arjuna Mahendran heist.

    Please treat him with utmost dignity. Well, you can ask the guys taken by the Rajapakse Regime how they were treated. After all, Gammmanpila was happy and comfortable with the way the detainees treated by his role models, the Rajapakses. Now the question is, how many finger nails he should retain or how many lines should be drawn on his back with an iron rod, or which street corner he wishes to thrown at.

    Has Batalanada recruited hundreds of Law grads with at least 10 years at senior level, to our CID?.

    Because their normal forte was to bring the Dalits on to the 4th Floor , beat the shit out literally, and throw them out of the window on to Chatham Street.

    Now they do all these high tech investigations even on Ageing Aussies complaints which are over twenty years old.

    Reading the legal reply of this rare Deshapremi Politician , the Aussie was on a dodgy deal .

    Why on earth a White fella wants to put his One Mil in Srilanka when even the Tiger supporters sold their real estate cheap to take asylum in Canada .

    This Aussie must have had some affection to our Lanka, even when Praba was calling the shots.

    I have heard that a lot of Aussies have taken asylum in Thailand with their hard earned nest egg to spend their retirement and indulge in their life long fantasies.

    Wonder what Aussie Brayan was planning to do in Srilanka.
