Video: Protesting Prisoners At Agunakolapelessa Prison Brutally Assaulted: Attack Carried Out Under Fake Government

The Committee to Protect Prisoners’ Rights today revealed that prisoners who protested Angunakolapelessa Prison Superintendent’s conduct and the STF raids in the prison premises were mercilessly beaten by authorities on November 22, 2018.

The organization, addressing a press conference in Colombo this morning, released several videos illustrating how the Police and prison authorities carried out a brutal attack on the protesting prisoners.

The committee also urged the government to initiate an investigation into the assault on the prisoners and penalize those responsible for the attack.

The incident took place under the watch of the “fake government” headed by President Maithripala Sirisena and the fake Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa.

The prisoners carried out the protest atop a tower in the prison premises against the conduct of the Superintendent of the prison and the constant searches carried out by the STF. About 100 prisoners took part in the protest.

    Well done CT for taking such great pains to point out that this was done under the fake Government of Rajapakse. So when is Yahapalanaya going to release or charge those Tamil political prisoners?

      “So when is Yahapalanaya going to release or charge those Tamil political prisoners?”

      Ranil has a special deal with Sambandan, and agrees not to charge them nor release them, middle path, in order to satisfy people like you and your fellow noisy minority.

      Did Sri Lanka’s aspiring emperor Nandasena Gotabaya Rajapaksa of Mahindawamsa dynasty visit the prison on that day as the the prisoners are seen forced to sit on their hands and knees (all fours) and moving backwards, head bowed facing the ground .

      Chinese plebs were used to it.
      Are we being forced to adapt ancient Chinese slave customs?

      Perhaps the prisoners were being raped by the visiting members of the STF or violated by iron rot.

        Stop gas bagging just because it was a Rajapakse who punished these rascals in the name of rule of law. These drug dealers, murderers, rapists and robbers deserve everything they get. What do you expect? To put them on cots and bottle feed them?

        Scoundrels like you latch on to ‘human rights’ of these scum for the sake of attacking the Rajapakse family. Out side the jail the scum lives on other peoples assets and blood, and that is why they are there.

        Scum like you who raise any rubble to attack the Rajapakse family because they defend the country and Buddhism should be put in the same jail. That is all you deserve from Mother Lanka.

        We the Sinhala Buddhists have had enough of you scum. Go to hell, short antenna.

        Naman,
        “We need an International Peace Agreement with UN implementation”
        The war ended in 2009. What the heck you talking about Peace Agreements? Except a tiny minority of Vellala politicians who act as the mouthpiece of ‘Koti Diaspora’, ordinary Demala people live happily in peace due to elimination of Demala terrorists. President Mahinda Rajapakse who gave the leadership to eliminate LTTE is the savior of Demala people who were suffering under the rule of megalomaniac Prabhakaran aka Pol Pot of Sri Lanka. No more grabbing of children to be recruited as child soldiers. Demala mothers should be eternally grateful to Mahinda Rajapakse.
        ——————–
        Now Demala mothers face a huge problem due to drugs brought to Yapanaya with the blessings of some Demala politicians. Recently, one leading Demala politician had played a role in releasing a drug dealer from Police custody.

      Okay, what happened to Welikada prisoners killing case? Went under the carpet?
      .
      critical thinking, how can you expect respect for prisoners in a country, where its public Health Service staff (from doctors to helpers) verbally abuse patients with all filthy words possible? And this happens because the workers in the public hospitals know the country provides free medical treatment, though they don’t know it is funded by the tax payers.

    Horrendous! Horrific! These baton wielding hate-full and power-full guards need rehab more than any of these prisoners. Can you imagine how they would be beating their children and wives? And you can be sure that these prisoners are gonna come back to society with vengeance and hatred which will be difficult to contain. Super camera work from a vantage point!
    The Perpetrators and the hidden hand behind The Welikada Prison Massacre must also be brought to justice. There is so much evidence that has been unearthed. The AG must act. And Act fast.The prime witness has been threatened and lives in mortal fear. Who issued the list of names of prisoners who had to be annihilated on that day? Only one guess allowed.

    You can be sure that these scumbag cops will get away with it. There is no accountability for such ugly actions. I did not see these guys being violent, so why did they have to beat them? Up to today the killers who massacred civilians in the North have still not being held responsible, or charged, in fact Sirisena has just rewarded the top criminal, Shavendra Silva, with a plum job. He has the blood of innocent civilians on his hands.

    Not only beatings but also torture and deaths in custody of police and prisons is rampant in Sri Lanka as reported by UN Rapporteurs after extensive investigations, in the past.
    Sadism is part of the nation’s psyche.
    Many Tamil prisoners arrested after the war, are still in custody without trial.
    In Bindunuwewa, Tamil prisoners were beaten to death by villagers while police and prison officers watched.
    A court found no one guilty.
    One hundred schoolchildren of Kamburupitiya Maha Vidyalaya which had a principal who was an officer of a voluntary regiment, were escorted out of the school along jungle paths and vanished without trace.
    There was no investigation.
    Thousands of unarmed/lightly armed young men and women, were tortured, and shot to death during two JVP insurrections.
    So were, human rights lawyers.

          “the national heroes the Rajapakse family, hiding under pseudonyms on this website.”

          National Heroes:
          The individual or group to be designated as a National Hero should meet most of the following criteria:
          has made a significant and lasting contribution to the people
          has enriched the lives of others not enriching Mahindawamsa.
          has a legacy that will stand the test of time and have continued relevance in the future
          has contributed to the quality of life and destiny of people
          be considered as outstanding in their area of activity (not committing large scale war crimes)
          has ready name recognition among the general population (for positive reasons)

          Characteristics:

          dedication to the people (not clan and cronies)
          commitment to the country as a whole not just for own vlan/tribe.
          self-sacrifice????
          conscientiousness ????
          demonstrates consistency and passion (for killing, being Hitler, a fascist)
          agent of change for betterment (of the clan, Mahindawamsa)
          demonstrates ethical behaviour (not in this island)
          demonstrates love for his Clan
          demonstrates leadership qualities (hiding behind women folks when IPKF was around and hiding dead bodies in mass graves)

    Prisoners must enjoy prisoners’ rights, not somebody else’s rights.

    Prison authorities have a duty to treat prisoners as prisoners, not letting them to enjoy other citizens’ rights during their prison life to make it the punishment given by the courts.

    Rehabilitation should be started at the end of prisoner period unless it may be considered contempt of court as well.

        “The whole subject here is about that bro”

        You’re right as there’s no such punishment of brutally or anyway of assaulting prisoners or anybody in our law.

        It’s inhumane, uncivilized, cruel etc.

        Unfortunately police assault is common in many countries as there’s no proper way of containing violently behaving individuals & groups.

        Police assaults may be seen as the development of corporal punishment given to the children by teachers.

        Though teachers are thoroughly advised not to do corporal punishment to their innocent children, a large percentage of teachers think it’s a must to bring students to right path.

        It’s an irony that some parents too make requests their children’s teachers to beat children to correct.

        Domestic violence is another such example that some husbands are permitted to assault their wives.

        So it’s clear that there’s an assaulting culture in our society/world that must be dealt with.

        The question we have is, in a society where parents beating of their children, teachers beating their students, Husbands beating their wives are tolerated why can’t we tolerate when criminals/IRC men living as prisoners are assaulted.

          It is very interesting to watch your revolution progressing, day by day. You always do all the notorious, inhuman filthy, cruel things done by some international Pariah countries and other murderous gangs and law breakers do. I yet have to see anything as part of your revolution copycatting a gentlemanly action somebody else did.

            As a matter of fact, your one.

            Just give a thought, how much we can achieve if we can stop parents harassing their own children, teachers doing that to their students & husbands (mainly) & wives doing that to their spouse.

            What I meant was correcting the beginning; even the prisoners won’t be aggressive if there’re demands to be made.

            In the same way prison guards/police will be able to deal with zero aggression in their duties.

              If I understand you, you think it should not have happened to me. Same way, it should not happen to you or anybody else. There are disciplinary procedures available to teachers. Parents must follow parental guides of the civilized society. Husband and wife don’t come there because they can consult to each other, cannot punish or discipline each other. The Western world, including Japan or others of this status has higher educational achievement and higher economic stability because they don’t follow your guide lines. If you guide lines are not followed achievements can become unlimited?

Your manner of using english and sinhala country names is indicative to me that you are not educated at all and more likely an escaped terrorist and refugee trying to be a respectable Sinhala to mislead the audiences here. Pretentious and unable to cope with other people’s opinions you think that you can make your points by bullying other people and calling them names. This is the way of cowards and uneducated. You are fake because you think that blogging under different names you are multiplying the population that have the same view as yours. So, when it comes to Batalanda, for a tamil terrorist it does not matter how many died at Batalanda Ranil’s behest, because blood is already in your hands.

    Agunakolapelessa Prison was expected to be a model of ‘rehabilitation’.
    Within minutes of MR taking over of the infamous short tenured PM-ship, these videos were taken.
    Signs of things?

    “The incident took place under the watch of the “fake government” headed by President Maithripala Sirisena and the fake Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa.”
    True.
    But would it have been any different if the protest was before or after the “fake government”?

    It is the SYSTEM that is to blame.

      SJ don’t just baffle again. It is really pathetic to see you, to display your superhuman knowledge, in an unwanted manner, struggling to save Old Royals. You don’t have the capacity to twist the things and fool others.
      News Piece:
      ” Two Policemen were shot dead in Vavunathivu”
      Now, can you apply your theory to that news too? We like to see your interpretations on some of the well-known issues. . Deva said in Jaffa that “Honey tell them all that I am back again”. Karuna said the end to the Muslim empire in the East had come to an end.
      This system was especially put together by Chitanta government. Apparently his Golaias reacted wildly seeing their master was on the throne again. No question on that, even if a fake commission safeguards the War Criminals in a later date.

      Those rascals, anyhow, took the system to the height of the sky. Now it cannot be reversed. During that time, death were not just rampant in the prison, but outside too.

      Please read others comments to see of how much they have exposed of Chitanta government’s operation during it time, instead of just insisting your superiority of your baffling.

        Crime, police brutality etc. are endemic to this society.
        To pin the blame on a government for events that occur during a brief period of that government is very subjective, unless a motive can be established.

          unless a motive can be established.

          Are you accepting that there was a motive in Old Royals’ short government because you couldn’t apply your theory to their government activities? Could you explain what was the meaning of it when Deva said in Jaffna that “Honey tell them all that I am back” Otherwise, as everybody knows who shot the policemen and why, but why are you backing off to explain your side? Did you see the woman and her children who set out on hunger strike to have her husband released were chased out by the Rapist Police? Would you be ready to meet that woman, record what she has to say and bring it to CT? (I am not asking you to do it, but I am asking if you are a person of that nature, then wecan use it in future talks too)

          ” Crime, police brutality etc. are endemic to this society.” Just don’t baffle without reading the comments posted there, again. In the Harichandra Drama he is saying “Aathiylium Parian illai, Saathiyilum Pariyan illai PaathiyilE Pariyan Aanen” ( I am not a Pariah from birth. My caste is also not like that. But I ended up adopting that low status by the fate of my life). Ceylon was not a Pariah State. Chandrika took 33 countries to work with her. Then can you explain where is this endemic came from?

    That is Shashath SinhaLE Wildlife Sanctuary in action. Though unbearable to watch human suffering, but nothing better was expected to come out of the Wildlife Sanctuary. A woman was appointed as Justice Minister in the height of MMDA. The expectation was she may show sympathy to the suffering of the other women. She has very artistically suppressed that issue, over and above the pressure from EU.

    Show this Rajiva Wijesinghe; he will tell “can you find these guys out of 150,000 policemen? There are lots LTTE terrorists are dressed in policemen and prison guards’ uniform”.

    Nirmalarupan was beaten in Vavuniya Prison. Only crime in the world he committed for that arrest was he was born as a handsome boy. This is not acceptable the Half Lion-Half Human guards. He was transferred to Anuradhapura. Beaten up until goes unconscious. Taken to Anuradhapura hospital and was tied to a bed’s leg like a dog, without medical care. He died. Family and activist filed FR case. Mokan Peiris gave a verdict that Tamils have no FR. Latter Ranil dismissed Mohan Peiris as an illegal appointment. But Ranil refused to reverse that illegal CJ’s illegal judgement, because denial of justice to Tamils is final, no reconsideration.

    This is a machinery built up to liberate Lankawe from Tamils with the slogan of “No Leader, No Commander, No soldier will be prosecuted”.

    These prisoners in Sri Lanka’s one and only super luxury prison-resort haven’t protested for food or water.
    They have protested against constant searches carried out by STF. Look at that!
    Do prisoners think that the Superintendent should be a coward and dance according to their tune?
    University students are attacked by Police at almost every protest. I have never seen anybody writing against it.
    Having said that, a Police baton charge is internationally accepted coordinated tactic to disperse protesters. In USA, even pepper spray and stun grenades are also used to disperse crowd (oh, please don’t do that here.)

      Champawati,

      People may have become numb to the body search, or even may enjoy it. But without a reason searching anybody is illegal and harassing. If anybody enjoys repeated body search, they should offer their body for that but should not argue that all prisoners should be subjected to that. It is absolute arrogance and indicator of their IQ 79 status, to assume that all prisoners are there for drug smuggling and they all are doing that inside the prison too.

        Yeah your IQ rate I can see.
        Do prisoners who engage in drug smuggling carry a name board to help the Police to conduct body search on themselves only?
        To curb drug menace, being arrogant is nothing comparing to the destruction it causes to human lives and a country as a whole.

          ” Do prisoners who engage in drug smuggling carry a name board to help the Police ”
          We don’t have a doubt on that. That is why we said that there should be an international war crime investigation and Tamils should be left alone from this standersing and brutality theories. We heard that you said you were capturing 5000 LTTE soldiers but killed 150,000 Tamils.

          You apparently accept that beating up need not to have on those who were involved in the drug smuggling but they need to be beaten up still for police to have freehand without observing or respecting their FR.

      “Tamil political prisoners? Who are they? I have never heard about such people. “

      Of course there is no such prisoners in this island however there are hundreds of thousands of illegally detained people in this island. You never heard of them because either you have living in your parallel Rawana universe or your pimp windbag Wimal Sangili Karuppan is sitting on your head.

        Knowing very well that it was Prabhakran who killed his own people at the last phase of war, yours and Cholan’s lies about killing Tamils is an ever uttering lie.
        How about beating up protesters in the UK and USA?
        Man, you Cholan who are supporters of bloodthirsty LTTE who unleashed crimes against humanity, shedding crocodile tears over a baton charge is the biggest joke.

        No one is detained illegally.
        All the Tamil terrorists are in prison for crimes committed against humanity.
        When they blasted bombs and killed people they are LTTE terrorists about whom you guys take pride. When they were apprehended and put in jail, they have become Saints to you. Go get a life Keyboard Vedda.

          Champass ………………

          Day by day you are becoming a smart ass clever dick.
          You must be the new incarnation of Nuisance (eusense) who has been missing for a while and suddenly you appeared to fill the space (hole).

          “When they were apprehended and put in jail, they have become Saints to you. “

          Brilliant.
          Only in your stupid fascist’s world view what the Sri Lankan state did was indeed a legal process. Catch anyone and throw them in prison indefinitely without any due process of law, then the detainees automatically become terrorists.

          Well that is the right path only for the fascists.
          Heil Wimal, Heil Champass, ………………….

    What you see is a brief glimpse into what anyone protesting for whatever reason prisoner, civilian anybody can expect under Rajapkshe rule. It happened before it will happen again and again. While the Rajapakshe thugs engage in cruelty every chance they get their supporters cheer them on displaying their nasty sadistic nature. The number of times these acts not just beatings but cold blooded extermination has gone unpunished is staggering. The other side of the coin is those that clutch their proverbial pearls and decide the best action is to do nothing. When forced to take action stall by appointing a committee or some other gimmick hoping for the fuss to dye down. Then business goes on as usual. My conclusion is that Sri Lanka is not a safe place for decent people to live. It is probably why most educated decent people flee the country the first chance they get.
