Update: Bharatha – Duminda shooting, I warned Dayasiri says

“During my speech I specifically brought up the thuggery and intimidation that was taking place in Mulleriyawa. I showed them photographs of shootings that happened during the run up to the elections but they ignored all of this and we have lost a political leader today,” says UNP Kurunegala District MP Dayasiri Jayasekara. On Thursday October 6, 2011, when Jayasekara was speaking in Parliament about the thuggery in Mulleriyawa, his speech was expunged and he was sent out of the chamber.
He further went on to add that, “The crux of my speech was that there is no rule of law in this country. Thugs who are close to politicians have with them illegal weapons and this incident was due to the use of these weapons. There are gangs that operate with the ruling party politicians and todays incident showed the danger that these weapons that are used by politicians could bring,” he said.

Jayasekara went on to note that the weapons that were used during the shooting were not legal weapons that were given to the policeman who were with the parliamentarians. “A policeman on duty would never open fire when there is an argument. The reason behind the shooting clearly must have been drunken-ness and thugs who were armed,” he said.

Former MP Bharatha Lakshman Premachandra died in the shoot out along with three others. UPFA Colombo District MP Duminda Silva was placed on life support after doctors removed two bullets that were embedded in his skull after a four hour operation, the Director General of the Sri Jayewardene Hospital, Dr. S. A. K. Gamage said. He said that two surgeons had attended to the injured MP and that more surgery was needed to remove a third bullet from his skull. The MP along with some 15 others was hospitilised after a bloody shoot out with a rival in the same party at Kolonnawa. listen here Bharatha on Duminda\’s underworld

    may be Sri Lankans are afraid to comment on this . ???? Why this country is going to dogs day by day. This DHARMA DEEPAYA, BUDUNGE DESHAYA….. what else??????? is now becoming ….. (u name it.) What is the President of this country doing??????? All the professionals are leaving this country and all the thugs breeded by the dogs will remain . The naiton has to get together against these violence and injustice. A military government would do better in this country.

      Thuggery is not acceptable. What about the people who gave all Island JP posts to notorious criminals like Gonawala Sunil et al? I can not remember his name. I think it atarts with R & Surname starts with W? Probably Dayasiri might be able to help me. Thugs have been running some politician and parties for the past so many years. You all politicians are responsible for that. How may positions has DJ taken ith past few years? How can people trust these politicians. I think he was trown out of the parliament for other reason, Some of them even have sided with LTTE for their own survival and political gain. Who made the country lawless. Whao gave the Police 2 weeks of holiday in 1977? We all have very short memories.

        hi, KKKKK, urs is nothing connected to nishanthi’s comment – isn’t it? Anyway, in 1977 there was nothing in big to say mey DHARMA DEEPAYAIY, Mey BUDUNGE DESHAYAI & MATHATA THITHA etc etc. Also 1977… in our parents’ era and not ours. We talk with practical experience , though we have not forgotten the past . What ever have have heard may be true. OK we will say it is true…. It was some people’s idea that the present president won the war (rather it was easier for him ) since all his brothers were around him in power. May be true. We say it is true, then what about TODAY ???? Why NO controls for idiots like Mervyn Silva, Duminda Silva etc etc. ? Talk sense. Very recently Nishanthi has commented about Duminda Silva , and what happened few days back. ??? Have we got short memories????? 1977 compared to 2011???? One can be of any religion, with good pretended image, but the TRUTH TALKS.

      There are lot of illegal things come out from the incident. Lot of illegal weapons, thugs, and drugs dealers are behind the govt. politicians. Political leadership appointing Duminda as Security advisory committee also lot of suspicious. Poor IGP unable to do anything’s. If police given security at least can save the innocent of the screen. There are lot of people are pointing Duminda for illegal work. Need the change of the security administrator.
      These all kill the image of country in international matter.

      This is natural justice. The intimidaters perish by each other . We have few more unscruplous above the law vermins around and I will not be surprised to wake up one day in the morning and learn that they have perished too. How ever much power or protected you cannot avoid natural justice. Beware those who think they are the ultimate chandiyas.

    It’s interesting to note how people like Gota who are supposed to be the top ranking people of the ruling party,are so worried about a unscuplous element like Duminda who is a cancer to the country.
    BIRDS OF THE SAME FEATHER FLOCK TOGETHER.
    This is our people have to realise.

      Like all other things in this country this incident and even Baratha and what happened to him will be forgotten in two weeks time and things will be back to “NORMAL*. Sadly even in the opposition there are very few voices like Dayasiri who will speak out . This is a good lesson for all the thugs.

        Yes, everything will be back to normal within another 2 weeks. This is the ture picture. One plitician is already gone in this incident. The other…. Duminda Silva, should not die but be on a wheel chair as a vegetable for other bloody thugary politicians to learn a good lesson. They have to live with suffercation. Ditta Dhamma……

    Really sad, If government had just listened and investigated in to what MP Dayasiri Jayasekara unfolded two days ago in parliament about Mulleriyawa shootings, this situation would have avoided but instead he was sent out of the chamber by former UNP’er Aswar now a UPFA who chaired the sittings at the time. No wonder the international say Sri Lanka is a lawless country. This is how the Rajapaksa’s want this country to be. God bless Sri Lanka.

Each country deserves the governments they get as it is the people who bring these good for nothing souls into power. Let the world call its another MIRACLE ‘ IN ‘ ASIA.

    Very true man..Azwar is not a suitable person to be in the chair of parliment…Its a shame how he rejected the photographs brought up by Dayasiri saying they were marked by a pen…Azwar should take the responsibility of yesterdays incident and should resign from the parliament immediately

    Baratha was shot and the President was at the opening of Hambantota 2011 forgetting one of his Knights who helped him to come to power during the transition of power from Bandaranayaka to Rajapakse. Some people say that it was a planned game of MR to knock any possible opponents to keep the ruling seat within the Rajapakses. Could be, Could be not. Whatever it is, Baratha or Lucky Ayya was a gentleman and we all are going to miss that smiling face. May his soul rest in Peace

    උදේ හවස මහ හය්යෙන් පිරිත් කියන රටේ ඉන්න නූගත් තක්කඩි දේශපාලුවන්ට සාප වේවා. දුමින්දයා සෑම තත්පරයකදීම මැරී ඉපදෙනු ඇත. එය ඔහුට ලැබෙන හොදම දඞුවමය්.

    Those non educated politician thugs who live in a country that chants pirith from morning to night we curse you. Duminda will die every second of his life and it is the best punishment one can give for him.

    All these things happens due to the wrong selection of the people in 2010 presidental election. If they had selected the leader who actually loves the motherland – ( Hon Sarath Fonseka ) rather than the cardboard hero -Mahinda, the counrty situation would not be like this. But people made the wrong choice.now they have to suffer.there is nothing to do now.think before you leap.

    So far, there are no reports of identification of persons who fired weapons in the shootout by a simple test, no identification of those whose fingerprints were found on weapons and bullet casings recovered at the site, no reports of matching bullets recovered from the head of Duminda Silva and the 48 bullets – according to his daughter – recovered from Premachandra during the postmortem examination to firearms used
    I foresee this murder case running for many months, witnesses diappearing during trial and witnesses changing their testimony.
    Sri Lanka may be the only country where proper crime scene investigation procedures are totally ignored. The great criminal lawyers, the attorney general and the judiciary are like ostriches burying their heads in the sand.
    The police are thus able to manipulate evidence to suit political favourites, for their own survival.
