Video: Udaya Gammanpila Remanded Till July 1st

UPFA Parliamentarian Udaya Gammanpila remanded till 1st of July by Fort Magistrate.

Udaya Gammanpila

Udaya Gammanpila

He was arrested this morning by the Police Special Investigation Unit.

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:

      “Hope they keep this this guy (Udaya G) in jail to rot there. He is one of the lowest scoundrels who has walked this planet.”

      Not before he repaid his 100 rupee fees to his supporters.

      The best way is to make them really earn a living from “An Honest Day’s Work For An Honest Day’s Pay”.

      Too long these crooks have been allowed to make parasitic living out of people’s poverty, paranoia, a feeling of helplessness, alienation, ………

        Dear Native,

        He should have taken cue from your mates, the Singapore Thamil and the Son in Law and become Bond Dealers.

        And you should set a new Yahapalana Bench Mark by tweaking your Quip .
        “An Honest Day’s Work for a Billion Rupiah Pay”.

          When did you become friends with Uthyan Ganapathipilla?

          I remember you were scathing Uthyan Ganapathipilla for leaving the crooks and the clan when JHU joined hands with UNP.

          Have you changed since then?

          I wouldn’t expect a b***s carrier to understand what “An Honest Day’s Work For An Honest Day’s Pay” means to many descent men and women.

          For a change you should visit Batuwangala to see it for yourself. If and when you visit this village on your way to idle your time away, please keep your hands to yourself as the women are beautiful, kind, hard working, tough, progressive, …. actually iron fist in velvet glove. Please behave yourself, we are not talking about free malt here.

          Or just forget it.

            Sour grapes for Baiya supporters!

            For sure, the bugger will go inside min 5 years.

            Slowly but surely things are moving on right direction and the thieves are getting the right treatment. This is the change that most of the sincere people expected to happen. This bugger should be put in to the cell with worst convicts so they know the best medicine to be given.

            He thought MR would win the PE and that’s the reason why the bugger switched sides. Regrettably ended up in wrong side. He is just another thief protected and saved by his godfather MR and used him when and where required.

            Joyful days are ahead when most of his compatriots would be seen in jail if the Yahapalana govt. fulfils the promise it made at the election to catch all the thieves.

            MR must have kept all the loot under his front men or proxies. He is challenging because all the loot is hidden under somebody else accounts. The govt. should start with his Tamil relative’s (Nirupama Rajapakshe’s husband) foreign accounts.

        Exactly, that is why we want foreign judges to be involved in the war crimes hearing. The local judges are totally corrupt and they are out to save the war criminals at the expense of the terrible losses people suffered when many ordinary civilians were arrested and then killed while under detention.

        Say NO to local inquiry and local judgement, and it will be a total waste of time, money and reconciliation will certainly more difficult.

      This Udaya Gamekolla is not a humble man. He is a rabid racist to his toes and he needs a big jolt to put him in track.

      He must not enjoy the luxuries of the prison afforded to politicians. He must be put with murderous criminals and made to clean up the prison toilet daily.

      These days the foul mouth Modawanse is maintaining silence. He too must be made to go on hunger strike as he abruptly ended one with his boru show with Mahinda in the roadside in Colombo.

      These unruly maggots are a curse and they must be made to account for their conduct.

        Manike,

        he is simply a person like the charactor of a ” Kunakatuwa” . See how he changed his mind set immediately Ranawaka broke away from their party to join hand against Rajakashehs who people believed have looted and rooted as no other leaders in the the country since indepenence. Since then, UG made every effort to attack Champika or any others that would rise against Rajaakshes. No matter his sympathisers would go against him, main agenda was to defend NUMBER ONE thieves but telling he himself has been clean and nothing in his hand to be regretted about interms of fairness. But we pefectly got it each time, when he argue on Satana or other TV talks, how dangerous and the manner UG twisted even prima facie evidence being revealed against Rajapakshes. This should be stopped whoever the man does so… then only society can learn from Politicians. How can a man who begged 100 bucks for his campaign betray the same folks that way ? He had to do lot more to prove that he is no means alike others being alleged, but totally unique, but he did other way around, cheating the folks further and further. These boomeranged to this date, sending the bugger to remand for the current 3 weeks. That should be a big ear slap to him and his so called sobre family.
        And his mahadanamutta bieng in Japan is insisting the kind of arrests are politically motivated… shamlessbugger adds thoughts no second to those of Wimal Buruwanse is totally funny to any 10 year old get to hear that. Rajaakshes should be kept in jail,since all and sundry is becoming clear the man is behind all these high profile frauds being revealed by now.

      While this guy Gommanpila is in remand custody there are were new developments in Japan according to very reliable sensitive information coming from Japan.

      Japan Govt. secretly informed their citizens not to wear “Gold Chains and bracelets” while travelling in trains until world famous “Rattaran” leaves Japan.

      Japan Also ordered to stop Internet facilities as “Google Mudiyanselage Wimal Weerawanse” against using Google. Japan Govt. feared that Google Mudiyanse will name Japan also as ally of Western power.

      There was another instruction from Japan Govt. to all young Mothers in Japan who has kids below 2 years to not to take them to walk in streets until former President of Sri lanka leaves Japan as those kids who cannot speak even Japan might say “Jayawewa” in Sinhala while they getting “Umma” from former President president.

      I thought of share these information with CT readers though this is not relevant with the article.

        Correction ,

        It should be ” Google Mudiyanselage Thunmulle Buruwana/Modawansa/Boruwasa “.

        Japanese old women too refrain from leaving their houses , as our Mafia king is famous for rubbing old women’s backs to have a perfect photo opportunity.

        As to issuing entry visas to bunch of criminals , Japanese Embassy should follow Singaporean emigration policies . frankly none of those criminals should get any entry visa to any country , as a matter of fact Mafia king and all his goons must be sent to Walikada , period.

          Hope youa re doing well. I am wondering why we failed to read anything about Rajaakshe s trips in detail. Why the media men stay away from reporting about those trips yet ? With whom the mafia kind had been in discussions during his trip to UGANDA ? Now again his ongoing trip to Japan ? Please add us any information if you know more about the said topics. Thanks friend.

            Dear Sama ,

            It’s good to know that you guys (srilankan expatriates ) keep in touch with Srilankan affairs , as to your question , i guess most of the media personnel are/were direct beneficiaries of MR ;thus, they are compelled to stay out of MR’s businesses. furthermore , MR wouldn’t let any independent journalist to interrogate him. After Lasantha W , there is no body to fill the vacuum of investigative journalism in SL ,had Lasantha been alive , he would have exposed MR’s all dirty deals . it’s a pity that , after lasantha’s demise , no body rose to the occasion.

            Both MY3 and RW protecting MR and his wife , as their initial agreement ;hence, no body would dare to touch any of them.

            Take care My friend Sama.

      Gammanpila case: Brian Shaddick to attend court proceedings

      Published: 2016-06-20 22:16:04

      Australian businessman Brian Shaddick is to fly to Colombo to attend court proceedings in the case in which opposition MP Udaya Gammanpila is charged with the sale by fraudulent means 4.1 million Pan Asia Bank shares valued at Rs.110 million belonging to Mr. Shaddick. Mr. Gammanpila was arrested by the Police Special Investigation Unit (SIU) on charges of having used a fraudulent a Power of Attorney said to have been issued by Mr. Shaddick to sell the shares held by the Australia Lanka Holdings Company headed by the Australian businessman at a time when Mr. Gammanpila was the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the company. Brian Shaddick joined a media conference held today at the Colombo National Library Auditorium via Skype. The media conference was organized by Lasitha Perera who holds Mr. Shaddicks the Power of Attorney in Sri Lanka. He told the media that though he had made every effort to take legal action against Mr. Gammanpila had failed because of Mr. Gammanpilas political support. Mr. Shaddick alleged that he was threatened by a son of Sydney Jayasinghe, who was a Joint Managing Director of Australia Lanka Holdings Company. Sydney Jayasinghe was also remanded along with Mr. Gammanpila in connection with this case. Mr. Shaddick said he left the country in the wake of death threats and decided to take legal action against Mr. Jayasinghe and Mr. Gammanpila. While denying claims of a political revenge, Mr. Shaddick said Sri Lankan politics has nothing to do with his personal matters. (Piyumi Fonseka) Pix by Kithsiri de Mel

      The difference is, as you also know, Basil R misused the people’s public money whereas this A’s crook defrauded a Power of Attorney to sell shares of a private individual. This is direct that the individual is taking court action against the fraudster . The former was also involved in many other corrupt deals including charging commissions.

      Namal or Yoshita or others remain scot free or on bail.
      Why is that… bailing out has now been made a joke by the current rulers.

      Kill someone or do the high crime but to get bail out.. is no means allowed in western societies where law and order works to letter.

    Mervyn Silva, Dumminda Silva ,Aluthgamage,Johnston Fernanado,Weerawansa,etc are the crude politicos who will rob in a dam I care style at the drop of a hat.In contrast Gamanpillai is the sophisticated crook -politician.His type first create a false persona like having been educated and ability to talk in English etc.They make the next step to show themselves as been honest,This Gamanpillai did by asking for that 100 rupees donation.Then under such sophisticated cover they begin their career of thieving, robbery and murder, all the while showing themselves as been “very respectable and honest” politicians.

    What Gamanpillai has done is a disgrace to Sri Lanka.How can the government ask investors to come with rouges like this in Parliament?The government must do whatever it could to punish these fellows under the laws of the land.Looking at the video above ,there seems no doubt that Gamanpillai has taken this poor man for a good ride.Gamanpillai deserves to do some a good length of jail time for destroying our country’s image.

    Thank you Colombo Telegraph for exposing this sophisticated fraudster with a face that resembles the old 5 cents coin.His voters must punish him next….that is if he escapes justice.

    It is crooks like Udaya G who want the Buddhist priests and the public to know they are the guardians of Lankan Buddhism in its most pristine
    form. They managed to infiltrate into most important Buddhist organisations. The other rogue mentioned by this Australian gentleman in the tape, is another highly questionable businessman.

    In the very nature of the integrity of our legal system Udaya G may be out in no time and even promoted as Senior Minister – like many in the Cabinet now from both sides of the political spectrum. How this guy passed out as a lawyer in Australia is surprising. He cannot speak for 2 minutes in proper English and worse still in writing the language.

      You had better watch your statements because they can cause you immense headaches.

      For your info ” Blessed Mother Teresa ” is a future saint of the Holy Roman Catholic Church and will be canonized on 4th Sept 2016 by Pope Francis and will be on the list of the Saints of the HRCC.
      We don’t know who you are, but from your moronic statement you must be another warped eyed, moronic, grass eating sri lankan who cannot be a good Buddhist.
      Its a shame that grass eaters like you exist in a lovely land, a land of plenty and many good lankans.

      Do not, repeat do not use the name of any Roman Catholic Saint as a example to paint your crude, vulgar, crooked, unethical, grass eating, corrupt, uneducated, cheating, foul mouthed, politicians because if you do the consequences are your’s to sort out.

      You are a damn disgrace to all good, honest, God fearing, educated, Sri lankans and there are many of them in your serene, lovely, land.

    One of the leaders of Colombo district racist votes ! These cases
    are going to run for years before seeing an end , and not going
    to stop him being re-elected in any election sooner or later
    because his vote base is well founded and deep rooted RACIST
    vote base . Joint Opposition , the filtered rogues in other words,
    is the by product of YAHAPALAAYA .Unless a special accelerated
    process is established to investigate high profile abuse of power,
    culprits are let loose ! They are let loose for a purpose .One
    such purpose is, not to let forces like JVP take the situation
    into their hands , the only alternative to emerge from eliminating
    fraud and corruption .Both Sira and Mr.Clean have spent all their
    life swimming in the same tank happily with these evils until they
    were offered their slots . There may be some cosmetic changes here
    and there under yahapalanaya but nothing serious except some set
    goals that MARA regime adamantly refused even to consider .

      Let me correct this – heis not one of the leaders – but a cheater. From you dont need to be intelligent or educated to decieve the lanken masses.
      This we got double proved in last election. No matter any high crimes have been commited but anyone – some highly abusive men got reelected by the very same so called high literate citizens of this country. Can you guys get it really the way Wimal Weerawanse to have gotten that much votes – had the masses been not decieved ?

      I have moved out of the country long ago – almost 3 decades, but in 70ties and 80ties, there were great profiles of politicians we could read.. their behaviours were also exemplary. I loved the way they had been exemplary. But in the course of time.. looking back, over the decades, peoples mind sets have been filled with COW DUNG but not with facts but facts…. that have led them to vote any simple simons or talkative men as their representatives. Wimal weerawanse or Udaya Gonmanpila … even if the latter is a degree holder and former it not even a guy who completed his schooling properly – both have much in common -. which is the simple talent to use lanken local phrases in twisting the innocient mind sets of the poor folks. Like fishing on muddy waters, they the like make every efforts to live their fantasies this way. I think the kind of politicians though have their powers to stay further making people further fools, they would never get a chance in a society where average people are knowledeble. So knowing all these, I believe, Media men have to finally turn the mindsets of the people to healthy correct ones – byhleping them genuinely. Media is the third force of a country regardless of any othe rfactors. I hope lankens will finally see it right – then only we can see there a tangible changes towards progress.. but progress

    If there is sufficient evidence against Gamampila that first go through the before courts of law.
    The Gamampila is politician and Member of Parliament and Elected by people.
    We want fair justice of his involvement any type of case.
    Public should know what is behind charges against MP of Parliament?

    Everybody knows that he was more critic on wrong doing by UNP-Ranil w… CBK and MS policies.

    You cannot supressed that political revival by who are against UNP Economic, political and social policies.

      Sirisena Yatawara ,

      “If there is sufficient evidence against Gamampila that first go through the before courts of law.”

      What do you think ? producing before a judge ;subsequently , judge ordering to put him in remand custody until 1 st of july ! is it similar to General fonseka’s incarceration or CJ Shirani B’s impeachment process ? it’s a sad fact that there are 58 millions of grass eating two legged buffaloes living among us , for them Gommanpila is a squeaky clean character , for us he is a con artist.at present there is some what impartial judiciary exist ; nevertheless , heaps and heaps of mafia king appointed biased judges still haunting the judiciary , hope these undesirable charters (Thilina Gamage , Sarath Abrew etc..) would find their rightful places in near future.

      udaya Gommanpila doesn’t where to draw the line , he thinks all Srilankan people eat grass as their staple food , big mistake , he deserves a very long jail sentence not just for this crime but also for his down right racist actions.

    Why can’t the media show prominently a hand cuffed Gammanpila being taken to the prison buses? He is walking towards the bus with free hands. Is it a trend that police are lenient with the politicos not to hand cuff? We would like to see the picture of them hand cuffed and being taken to the prison buses. Brian was not able to sue Gammanpila and get remedy while MaRa was in power. Now the foreign investors will have more confidents to invest in Sri Lanka. MS & RW government is improving in the judicial side.

      It is the local media still being feared to Rajapakshe goons work even today. So this question I also raised immediately got to see the scenes. but I undrestood, that highly abusive BASIL and his Ghosts are still in action no doubt, the bugger has no the kind of health problems anymore as had been reported few months ago. Interpol should be that low not to have brought his wife and children for all the high abuses done by them durin the high days of his brother. These properties should be taken to lanken states and give a relief to people should be started let alone today. American authorities would support lanken counterpart if they would go fearlessly to search for them.
