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’.

    Thalatha has no experience in this subject at all. She will be a mere puppet of someone. There is no such big deal with a history as a student in the past. Everyone has certain pros and cons in their lives. As far as we consider what we can offer to people ,Dr.Wickramarathne is the best choice for the position. There is no doubt about that.

    Can this woman do anything. she was handling middle eastern women. did she do anything except occasionally issuing some press release. So, they want a puppet which will do only the Ranjan Ramanayake, Rajitha Senarathne like big mouths talk. So, it looks horapalanaya really does not have a capable person. According to wijayadasa Rajapakse UNP Cabinet ministers have work good experience in peliyagoda fish market. So, if they are saved this time, they will be definitely in the Next times Jackal Opposition the part for left over thieves who di dnot lose.

    UNP running out of source. What is the profile of Thalatha Athukorala? Samiyaar narrowly escaped by bringing down the 65,000 iron cages to 6,000 thousand. Otherwise he would have stood ahead for Ravi and Emil Mahendran.

    What about the collective responsibility of politicians who got votes, now they are stealing from everyside and as legilators they abuse the powers vested by the voters .What is the collective responsbility of media. they publish biased reports. Why do they have freedom to write when they are biased. I think, this time not the govt, people should start taking journalists for publishing lies. They should know how to do it. then politicians will stay silent.

    Not wise to appoint a Tamil at this stage. War crimes cases will come up soon. That will lead to racism and riots. Thalatha is good. Ajith Perera is also good. Eran is also good. Kabeer is better.

    UNP has listen to the people!

    Good job Prime Minister!

    1. Now investigate him and expose his connection to Avant Garde.
    2. Investigate him for Bribery and corruption.
    3. Investigations into how these high profile cases were blocked.
    4. Who are the others involved in this cover up network.

    Hey man, at least they have come to the levels, to sack any Rajapakshe henchmen from the offices.
    Were the high Rajapakshe in that spirit, never, they had been obsessed with their thoughts to filling the bucketful of pockets again and again.

    This govt has made a big mistake, that is from the begining on, they had to report lot more about what they have been going through. All the garbage dumps inherited by the current govt, is faced as if catch 22 works.
    They dont want to open up them to the nation, thinking that could then sound as if the govt is weak… but all the loads of shits left by RAJAPAKSSHE ANIMALS were fallen on their heads.
    That they knew, but the change was obligatory.
    All these, JVP and other men too should criticise loudly.
    Media prostitutes set by Dherana and Hiru channels, have been louding the headlines in favours of Medamulana Musalaya and their families.
    They none of them have been able to interview anyone that have been alleged to have LOOTED the huges sums of state funds in the previous so called regime.

    I have no doubts, Karma will punish them sooner than later. LET S WAIT FURTHER PATIENTLY.

    Dealdasa should have been given the boot at the last shuffle but MR tied My3’s hands through the Mahasanga. Ranil made a wise move by putting it to the party and not taking a unilateral decision. Now that the UNP as a party has spoken if he is to remain then it is all My3 and he cannot say something to the voter and do something else when its time to act.

    Wieyadasa Rajapakse is another smart patriot. He went & spoke to the Mahanayakes without the presence of the media.
    He came out of the meet and gave his version of what happened. Has he told the same thing to the president & PM in their offices ?
    Why the press could not get the version of Mahanayakes so that the people of SriLanka can be aware of what is going on ?

    Another possibility of what WR may have spoken or asked the Mahanayakes.

    That is give their blessings so that he can join Percy Mahendra’s new SLFP and save the Buddhism in SL in the current form that was started in 1956 and perfected in 1972 and improved it in 1977 and in incremental improvement with ammendments.

    Yahapalana regime is a disaster from the start. They have lied to the people, they know it, that’s why they don’t hold the elections.

    Wijedasa is the only patriot among the ‘Yahapalanaya’ traitors. He told off Ben Emerson the idiot. He has exposed the growing Muslim threats to the Sinhala-Buddhist Sri Lanka ( Western intelligence services have already warned Sri Lanka of possible Muslim attack). .

    Right now, Badudeen is the biggest culprit in Yahapalanaya regime..

      John, he is a criminal who is trying to protect his criminal network and a few war criminals by mixing them up with war heros and all those who have worked hard to bring peace and unity to this country.

      Don’t try to tarnish the names of our war heros and those working hard to build a better Sri Lanka for all by protecting the few war criminals you are trying to protect…

      These kind of people need to step down from politics…

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

    Better later than never. Or should have been done at least a year ago!

    Too many procrastinators in the “Yaha Palanya”.

    We the People, wanted the so-called “Minister of Justice” , or rather the “Monster of Justice” to be sacked years ago., and it took a celestial event, the Total Eclipse of the Sun, to fall across All of America, to get this happen.Certainly, the celestial Gods have spoken, Sack Wijedasa Rajapaksa because he would not resign, unlike Ravi Penthuse.

    Wijedsas Rajapaksa is a cronie so Mahinda Rajapaksa Crooks and Criminal s, an dis their protector to delay justice for the criminals and thieves..

    Wijedasa who revealed he would resign after making a special statement in parliament on Monday (21) , has changed his mind on the advice of his true mentor cum destroyer the Medamulana Rajapakses , and therefore decided not to resign. The instruction of Medamulana Rajapakses to Wijedasa is not to resign , and stay put in the government as long as possible in order to sabotage and impede the activities of the government (in fact , that was what Wijedasa did all along while being in the government through his snake under the grass policies and shameless betrayals ).

    Yahapalanaya steadily loosing it’s wider base. But with no elections in sight the electorate is pushed to take actions outside the electoral process. The immediate aim of current purge appears to be aimed at saving bond looters. AG dept might buckle under pressure and the PCoI may be stifled.

    The an intention of UNP-Ranil Wicks and CBK both want that ransack democracy and created chaos of system of governances by living in fish in trouble water?
    The real motive is indefinitely an idea of UNP governances that postpone Parliamentary and Presidential Election that due on 2019 and 2020.
    They will run governances by 2015 mandate of Million 6.2 in their life time of CBK ,MS and UNP-Ranil Wicks?
    By and large they (Ranil ..W..& CBK) still living in world of that a priority of political nepotism and corruptions that they believed to be democracy. The Unholy alliance of cohabitation of CBK and UNP-Ranil …… has restricted freedom of exercise right to vote.

    Wijedasa Rajapakse must resign for taking cover under an archaic legal maxim and delaying justice
    The country was waiting to see the allegations against the avant hard and politicians of previous regime brought to justice so they could prove their innocence or be found guilty

    What we witnessed was that Wijedasa had been to USA on avant guard Chiefs patronage and thus no justice can b expected from him
    Also we heard recently true or not we don’t know about money laundering claims and. Cafe stacked with black money and coffe shop chains

    All this only proves that there will b no smoke without fire
    He should hv answered to his allegations
    If he doesn’t resign we urge the govt to sack him since he is a double tounged serpent in our eyes

    Justice Minister Wijedasa Rajapakshe is a source of acute embarassment to the unity government. He should have been sacked the day he said that he will not allow Gotabhaya Rajapaksa to be arrested. Clearly he was a mis-fit to continue to hold the Justice port-folio..

    Wonder why the dilly dallying in taking a decisive step when it comes to removing a cabinet minister on valid grounds. WR should have been removed the next minute he uttered his difference outside cabinet in an inflammatory manner. RK should have been sacked when it was revealed via a sworn testimony that he and or his family had financially benefited directly from a person whose businesses had close dealings with institutions coming under his ministry. All this time consumption shows how weak the political leadership is. A leader MUST be capable of taking decisive decisions regardless of its popularity, for the sake of discipline and above all maintenance of election pledges – getting rid of corruption. Wonder how many weeks it would take before the IGP is sacked for his man handling of a low rung employee whose fundamental rights were violated. NPC has washed its hands off any disciplinary action!

    2 years too late! Today Lanka is in a China-Washington Debt trap because of corruption of politicians of UNP and SLFP.
    What happened to the Sri Lankans named in Panama Papers corruption leaks investigations? Navaz Sharif in Pakistan had to go.
    Why has Ranil not asked his fine friends in Washington DC – IMF and MCC to use their fake development experts to tack down looted funds to pay off the massive national debt caused by corruption of Politicians, rather than load VAT taxes onto poor people so that they may pay for financial crimes of corrupt politicians like Ravi K and the Mahinda Jarapassa family?
    Bond scam Ranil who appointed Avant Guard Wijedasa Rajapassa to protect Mahinda Jarapassa and family, and who has appointed Tilak Marapona who is another Avant Guard crook as FM to protect US security interests in Lanka, and who appointed Ravi K to sell Big Data to the Superpower, while dancing to IMF tunes so that Sri Lanka will end up like Greece which is in a massive debt trap, must go NOW,.

    Mr. President! Why don’t you give the job to Rajitha (minister) and Ranjan (deputy minister). Both have PhDs in ‘low and odeur’ from Kokorodia university.
    People may predictably say the duo will soil themselves like the proverbial ‘idiot’ who soiled himself on 7 times consecutively. It doesn’t matter; anyways, Yahapalanaya has soiled itself a few times already.
