Wijeyadasa To Be Sacked Today ‘On The UNP’s Insistence’ – Justice To Go To Thalatha

Minister of Justice Wijeyadasa Rajapakshe is to be sacked today morning following a special announcement where the responsibility for the move would be laid at the door of the United National Party (UNP) following discussions between party leader Premier Ranil Wickremesinghe and President Maithripala Sirisena.

The UNP’s Parliamentary Group sans Rajapakshe met at Temple Trees on Monday and called for Rajapakshe’s axing for the second time.

The Prime Minister then met with President Sirisena to intimate the UNP’s decision and to decide on a course of action.

Accordingly Rajapakshe’s removal will be announced today as a decision made upon a UNP request and a UNP request alone so as to save President Maithripala Sirisena any possible embarrassment.

Sources close to Wickremesinghe told Colombo Telegraph that the vacancy thus created will most probably be filled by Thalatha Athukorala or Deva Manoharan Swaminathan. Apparently Jayampathy Wickremeratne‘s name had also been proposed as a possible replacement but it had been shot down on account of his exam-cheating past which would have caused embarrassment since the subject was ‘justice’.

    We don’t want to hear anymore news stating that “Wijedasa to be sacked” but the news “he has been sacked” . This issue has become a drama some says will be sacked and President was reluctant.

      Asgariya Mahanayake has summoned the President and PM to negotiate a settlement acceptable to the Mahnayakes and Sinhala Baudha Janathawa.

      I forget Dealdasa also has a Buddhist title given by the Mahanayakes so they cannot kick him out that easy and MR might have already threated to hold his donations.

      Now not to make this as a crisis, UNP will back off and New King will claim he saved the Sinhala Buddhism in this country for another 2500 years. Modayas need only arrack and Biryani. They won’t care about this.

      All politicians play this drama.

      National Unity government has failed to act unified on General Criminal matters. Sampanthar had fooled the Tamil for three years with his secret solution.

    New King fired Dilrukshi for trying to investigate the bribery crimes. Now New King is refusing to fire Deal, who openly protecting SLFP criminals. Jeyam told New King will protect him for torturing lift operator as he has been doing washing service to New King and family. Ranil and Mangala has been claiming that they too are one protected the war criminals like New King, Old King… In total New King is the one batting alone for the highest score. Now time for all parties to explore a impeachment method to remove criminal president.
