Witch-Hunt Exposed: Ex-CID Sub Inspector Says CCD Pressured Him To Falsely Implicate Shani Abeysekera

A sub-inspector formerly attached to the Criminal Investigation Department has reportedly told the Gampaha Magistrate that the Colombo Crimes Division (CCD) had “pressured” him to give a false statement to falsely implicate former CID director SSP Shani Abeysekera, blowing the cover on the witch-hunt against the former CID Director who was arrested a few days ago.

The explosive revelations came after the Sub Inspector R.S.M. Mendis was arrested by the CCD and produced before the Gampaha Magistrate today (4).

Shani Abeysekera

When the sub inspector was produced in court, his lawyer Chaminda Athukorala informed Gampaha Magistrate Manjula Karunaratne that ASP Neville de Silva and another Inspector attached to the Colombo Crimes Division had warned SI Mendis that he would be arrested unless he provided a statement that SSP Shani Abeysekera had planted firearms at a house in Gampaha in order to frame former DIG Vass Gunawardane for murder.

When Mendis failed to comply, the sub inspector had been arrested by the CCD, his lawyer told the Magistrate.

After giving ear to the allegation made by lawyers for the sub inspector, Magistrate Karunaratne decided to record a statement from SI Mendis inside Chambers.

With the witch-hunt against Shani Abeysekera who oversaw key probes that have implicated high ranking members of the current regime badly exposed the Government cracked down on media reports about SI Mendis’ assertions in the Gampaha Magistrate’s Court.

Several hours ago the Daily Mirror newspaper in Colombo published an article titled: CCD pressured me to frame Shani Abeysekara – arrested fmr CID officer tells Magistrate. The report detailed proceedings in court and provided valuable background information regarding the evidence compilation specifically in reference to the recovered firearms in the Vass Gunawardane murder trial.

A few minutes after the story was posted online, it was removed by the administrators. A copy of the article cached by Google is however circulating across social media and can be accessed here.

Colombo Telegraph learns that the harassment of Shani Abeysekera is directly linked to the Gotabaya Rajapaksa regime’s decision to grant ex DIG Vass Gunawardane a pardon after the parliamentary elections. DIG Vass Gunawardane was a close associate of Rajapaksa during his tenure as defence secretary. It was widely believed that Vass Gunswardane’s contract killing business was given protection by high ranking members of the Rajapaksa administration in 2005-2015.

Interestingly the case to frame Shani Abeysekera on false charges was handed over to the Colombo Crimes Division, where the convicted ex DIG Vaas Gunewardane functioned as Director during the time of Mohammed Shiyam’s murder.

The facts of the case against DIG Vaas Gunewardane as they relate to the ongoing persecution of former CID Director Shani Abeysekera are as follows:

· SI Mendis is currently attached to the Embilipitiya Police station. He was arrested on Monday (3) on charges of fabricating evidence in the 2013 Mohammed Shiyam murder case.

· In May 2014 it was then ASP Shani Abeysekera and SI Mendis who informed the Fort Magistrate’s Court that a weapons haul had been discovered at the Gampaha residence of an associate of former DIG Vass Gunewardane. Abeysekera and Mendis are now being accused of planting the weapons there to frame Vass Gunawardane by the owner of the residence (Priyantha Neligama) in which the firearms were discovered and a former aide (Chaminda Villaarachi) to the ex-DIG.

· Both Neligama and Vilaarachchi provided sworn statements to the CID in 2014 that the weapons were hidden by ex DIG Vaas Gunewardane. In 2013 at the time of the Mohammed Shiyam murder, Neligama and ViIaarachchi were Vaas Gunewardane’s guards. In June 2020 they retracted those confessions claiming instead that SSP Shani Abeysekera had planted the firearms at the residence. The duo said their confessions against Vaas Gunewardane had been compelled by Abeysekera.

· In 2014, the Rajapaksa regime was still in office and Gotabaya Rajapaksa, known to be a long-time patron of DIG Vass Gunawardane was defence secretary. Colombo Telegraph learns that on several occasions, Gotabaya Rajapaksa attempted to interfere with the CID investigation into the bent cop and his contract killing operation.

· During his murder trial, former DIG Vass Gunewardane made a confession on the dock that he owned the weapons recovered by the CID at the home of Priyantha Neligama. The former DIG claimed he had obtained the weapons during an operation against the LTTE. However investigators discovered that some of the weapons found were registered to the Kurunegala Police armoury.

· In 2015, a High Court Trial-At-Bar found DIG Vass Gunawardane, his son Ravindu Gunawardane and several police officers serving in Gunawardane’s unit guilty of murdering the businessman Mohammed Shiyam for sum of Rs 10 million paid by Shiyam’s business rivals.

· The two rival businessmen turned crown witnesses and testified during the trial that they had indeed contracted DIG Vaas Gunewardane and his team to carry out the murder for money.

· CCTV footage displayed during the trial showed Shiyam being abducted in a vehicle belonging to DIG Vass Gunawardane. His son, Ravindu Gunawardane who was also sentenced to death by the High Court, was driving the vehicle that abducted the businessman who was later murdered.

· The Government Analyst found that a weapon recovered at the Gampaha home of the Vass Gunawardane associate matched the bullets that had killed Shiyam.

· A High Court judge also convicted former DIG Vass Gunawardane in 2018 for threatening to murder CID officials, including SSP Shani Abeysekera who were interrogating him over the murder of Mohammed Shiyam. The Attorney General indicted the former top cop on charges of threatening murder, and High Court Judge Gihan Kulatunge found Vaas Gunewardane guilty and sentenced him to five years rigorous imprisonment.

· During the trial, the Attorney General alleged that, on or around June 13, 2013, the CID detectives, including ASP Shani Abeysekara, and, Special Investigations Division OIC, Inspector M.A.S. Ranjith Munasinghe, had received death threats, when Vass Gunawardane was being questioned, at the CID headquarters on June 13 over the killing of businessman Mohamed Shiyam.

· In a complaint to the CID Special Investigations Division, ASP Abeysekara alleged that the suspect Vass Gunawardena threatened them saying, “Shani, I am a murderer; you won’t be able to keep me inside forever. When I am out, see what I will do to all of you.”

    What’s the point? The solution to all problems lies in our hands- the voters of the Sri Lankan electorate.
    .
    The problem is that there are some 16 million of us, and about 12 million of us will actually cast our ballots.
    .
    Hush! Mine is still floating. Will the Telephone lot keep faith if given our votes? If we have any doubts on that score we must go along with the JVP. The worst thing to do will be to stay at home.
    .
    So, go out and VOTE for God’s sake! If voting for the Telephone, cast Preferences only for those you know will never cross over to the Rajapaksas. With the JVP you’re on surer ground.

      The question they would all raise would be – ” what have they achieved for the benefit of the masses during the last 9 months”. …

      COVID crisis – they failed to do the job – if anyone would agree with their FAKE media, then entire world would have to praise SUDAN, ETHIOPIA, UGANDA, RUWANDA, MALAWI, TOGO, and any other poor countries that also prove not to have let spread the virus within each of their countries.

      NO ENOUGH tests performances – lesser number of both deaths and infected people. BASTA.

          almost anyone with some sanity would be more than sure, that you are a back licker of Rajaakshes for some hidden reasons.

          So nobody could succeed making you guys normal. If bitch s sons would be reelected to the parliament live with it. I am very sorry, decent people like Mr Sinhala man, Native and the few others too have to suffer because of the stupid actions of you the kind of BORN ultra idiots.

          Let this be the last line to you. I have no sympathy towards any of the low lives of your nature any more.
          If Rajakshes would get 2/3 we will not support srilankens anymore. Better to look at the destitute peopl ein Africa. Basta

      Sinhala-Man: I am sorry to note, even the voters of your caliber, have not noted that there is no political outfit called “JVP” in this election. My attention is only to “NPP” with the symbol “Compass”. That “JVP” has sacrificed their “Identity” (JVP) and the registered symbol “Bell” in favor of a federate named as “Jathika Jana Balavegaya” (NPP). Of course, I blame “NPP”, and the “JVP” for their greatest FAILURE in not bringing that to the serious attention and consideration of the voters. They will see the mistake, but it would be too late. You know, some times the most intelligent too become an idiot.

    Mr. President: Someone in your “Inner Circle” is manipulating to tarnish your image. You have the “Authority” in terms of the Constitution of Sri Lanka to “Pardon” anyone committed to death by courts. Remember, you did it immediately assuming duties in that position. That “Ranaviruwa” (War Hero) who was sentenced to death for abduction and murder of those five students, was “PARDONED” by you. So what is the big problem in “Pardoning” this DIG Vas Gunawardena, without allowing your Police to get engaged in a “Circus”? These are all “Maru Viruwoas”, Pardon all of them and you will be once again a “Janadhipathi Viruwa”.

      Simon,

      what have been bubbling ? Has he ever got to have an image. Everything what he achieved is through fake perception made in the society by their men.

      Just imagine, what has he achieved for the people during the last 8 months ?

      Nothing right ? Not even OIL price reduction is given to the people yet after 6 months even if the prices in the world market is unbelievably low? Price of cost of living is highly dependent on the price of the oils, but bitch s sons never thought, about the real grievances of the suffering people. So why should ANYONE with some sanity shoud elect them again ?

        Leelagemalli: Thanks. I do think, you know very well the meaning of “Sarcasm”. I sometimes used that expression to condemn and reject the “Thrash” that “Ceremoniously” exists in the society holding high positions. You asked: What have been building? Has he ever got to have an image.” If you read my comment on the hidden sarcasm, you will at once see the “image” and what has been building during the eight months in office. It was sorry for me to see some of the readers of this forum could not get at the hidden sarcasm I directed at this “Tiger” in “Sheep” clothe. What more, even 6.9 million in Sri Lanka didn’t “Identify” that “Beast” and the Goons around him. Cheers!

    Welcome to a DISCIPLINED and VIRTUOUS nation !!!!! Rajapaksa are not here for the country, people for that matter not even for the SB. They are there just for them and the people who have been working for them , like Vasu (the socialist intellectual)who said recent court judgement against SLPP candidate was an error.Lanka after getting independence from Colonial rule is now after 70 years is returning back to Chinese rule. Every Government has killed its own people including the Sinhalese youth.There is nothing in the name of development other than white elephents, Chinese built projects and some Banners .The main income was from migrant workers, dispora settled abroad, Garment industry which have come to screaching halt.Every country including Gulf Nations are sending migrants back to protect their jobs. Western countries too will soon follow limiting entry Lankan retunees (more economy than Covid scare) when runout of their savings will be desperate to return or looking for survival options. Foreigners including Lankans are reluctant to invest any of their savings. With all the hype going around , once the situation improve will any Lankan provided the opportunity to go abroad will refuse the offer because of Rajapaksas splendour ??? Even the so called educated, doctors, engineers, highly skilled if offered an opportunity are glad to leave the country. (to continue)

    The minorotity feel that our governments, especially Rajapaksa have let them down, but the fact is no government has helped the Sinhalese either. They marketed and survived solely on division, hatred, lies and “fighting /winning the war “. There is no single indicator including social, industrial, education or health shows any significant improvement or development.The country is surviving on private sector and handouts (loans). All government institutes including the successful ones , have been looted and rundown to the core. End result politicians, their families, relatives, few businessmen who finance these politicians projects and people who worked for them turned super rich (less than 10%). I have not heard anyone from middle and lower economic group claiming any benefits or improved quality of life , from our governments.For 30 years Governments claimed to have excuses of fighting a war, which in fact could have been politically solved in 3 months to 3 years. Now they have the excuse of Covid for the comming 30 years ( though thay claim minimal impact).People like Ealaventhan who complained anyone and every one including SJV and GG for selling out should realize the Govt did not do any thing good for the SB either.. (also the guy only had complaints with no remedy Gr has hinted “Covid has made my plans 100 times difficult”, whcih every leader is facing not just him.

    Because they are like frogs in well, it is Sri Lankan Political culture to take revenge when they are in power aginst their opponent. The past host shows communal riots after the elections as an act of taking vengeance on those who voted aginst the party that came to power. That is Sri Lankan culture. There are many such cases in the history of Sri Lanka. However, the majority of the people speak that they true Buddhists and respect the other life that is a big LIE. Taking revenge is the blood of the Mahinda dynasty. Many political murders prove that As written by an Indian journalist, Gota has three faces. One is that he appears like pure protectors of Singhala Buddhist and real Buddhist and Vegetarian
    Second is that he is the savior of the singhala race from the Terrorism and Tamil liberation movement. According to singhalese, they do not understand the difference between the liberation movement and Terrorism. The majority of the singles would not have read the UN differentiation of both. That is how te picture is printed by Mahinda dynasty, and thirdly, they will say one thing to India and do another at home to get votes. The Sri Lankan voters were taken for a good ride during the presidential election using the Easter Sunday attack.

      Kuviyam,
      Sinhalayo very well understand the difference between liberation movement and terrorism.
      LTTE Tamil terrorists were even worse than terrorists. They were barbarians. If they were liberation fighters, they do not have to slit the tummies of Sinhala pregnant women, pull out babies, throw them up and hold the point of a bayonet.
      Liberation fighters do not snatch underage children from parents and recruit them as child soldiers. LTTE had 24,000 child soldiers.
      Liberation fighters will not spray bullets at people who worship in a place like Sri Maha Bodhiya or praying in a mosque.

      If you want to hear more such incidences, please let me know.

    Leaving all the “Sarcasm” and outside comments, now I come to the main subject matter. In the case that was concluded with a death sentence to Vas Gunawardane, one of the strongest evidence submitted was the “Identification” of the weapon and its use on the victim, considering the wounds inflicted on the body. Who gave that evidence? None other than the Government Analyst. The main suspect, Vas Gunawardena accepted the weapon produced belonged to him. Next in line for authentication of evidence were the ex AG and Solicitor General. That previous AG is now the Chief Justice. I, if correctly remember then Solicitor General was one Wijethunga. Apart from these two, there were many others in the AG’s Dept. who studied material evidence and filed the case, prosecuted and obtained the conviction. Now with the turn of “Events” , will the “Gota,s CID” QUESTION the then AG, SG, Govt. Analyst and other Juniors in the AG’S Dept? Would they be “ARRESTED” for Fabrication of Evidence and IRRESPONSIBLE, QUESTIONABLE NEGLECT of DUTY? This Shani Abeysekera definitely would not have worked ALONE in this case against Vas Gunawardene. So there are many QUESTIONS than ANSWERS in this case against the arrested so far.

    After casting his vote MR told press “we will get our 2/3 VREATED in parliament, if not at polls”. Openly admits to horse trading. Say bye to DEMOCRAZY and wait for splendour and prosperity. I guess this is what GR ment by discipline and virtuous.

    The word “Focus” in English Tmeans Kuviyam in Tamil. The concentration of the mind The voters need a real focus on the state of the country. If they lack that focus and believe only in false promises that will protect Buddhism Plotical promises made become out of focus after gaining power, In Buddgsm meditation is the technique used to focus the mind in doing good things, But in Sri Lank, the Buddhist monks meditate with different destructive objective, In another few hundred years Buddhism will become a very violent religion. When Gota baya goes with his wife to Vihara with lotus buds in his hands and makes submission and pray no one knows what is in his mind. The main possibility is that he wants his power to continue until he dies and his relations control the government. Lying. Vindictive attitude, Not respecting the feelings of the people will have a boomerang effect on his life

      Kuviyam,
      Dumbo, how the hell you know what Buddhist monks think when they meditate. Use your brain before writing this kind of rubbish, if you have one inside your head.
      Buddhism will never become a violent religion like Hindu, Islam or Christian religions.

    So what’s happened to the independent police commission? Has it had its teeth pulled out?

    Police, Investigations, Judicial decisions are all politicized and manipulated. This shows that what a spineless set of fellows who are there not to call a spade as spade. Lying is bad enough but to lie under oath to give false evidence so as to implicate someone else is the worst. We now see that people also change their story with the change of power. Gone are the days when facts are sacred. The biggest implication is that does Sri Lanka has a reliable Police service? The answer has to be a one big NO. Some believe that voting for a party whom they think as correct would solve the problem. WILL IT? Aiyo NO. All this manipulation is for better prospects. Next time an innocent man will get landed in jail for possession of narcotics and the term can be quite a time if not the death sentence. May God help our people.

    EC says this is his last election. I guess he has already figured out that there is no need for one anymore (a rubber stamp will do). I would rate him as just mediocre, but given the circumstance (with Rajapaksas around) it could have been worse. Thanks and GOOD BYE to you as well to Lankan DEMOCRAZY. Even yesterday MR with hundreds of unauthorized supporters entered illegally into three polling booth. He was found roaming around with thugs in multiple vehicles through out day. Beginning of a disciplined virtuous country.

    SCP , you and Evil are still into in depth comparative analytical study on who traded more, who is more corrupted, who gave more bribes , but your own leader is talking about virtuous and disciplined society. What a bunch of hypocrites you people are ???? Remember the phone calls your most loved leader made during the MS staged coup days offering crores.
