X Files, Cold Case Files And Rajapaksa’s Bambu Files

By Helasingha Bandara

The most famous files are X files and cold case files. Next will be MR files.

mahindaThe ‘Files’ story has more significance than most people realise. It is a double edged sword. Mahinda Rajapaksha (MR) can use ‘Files’ story to intimidate the remaining Ministers, MPs and lesser politicians to think twice before crossing over and can use it to prevent the ones who  have already crossed from revealing certain truths. On the other hand the opposition coalition can use the files story to topple MR if they use it wisely.

This writer predicted last week that Suren Surendiren’s unwise and out of place comment would be used by the regime to deceive the masses. By today every Minister, every MP and every lesser politician of the ruling coalition is talking about an international conspiracy of taking MR to The Hague and charge with crimes against humanity and war crimes, if he loses the election. What can you say other than “Olugedi walata henagahalada sihalunne (are the heads of the Singhalese thunder struck?)

Back to Files. MR said;

“I have the files on the dissident politicians, but I won’t use them. I am not that kind of a man”

What kind of a man? A man who is bent on revenge obviously.

History tells us a different story. Contrary to what he has said MR is well known for his robust tendencies to wreak vengeance. Sarath Fonseka and Shirani Bandaranayake are the two most luminous examples. He did not say until what time he would not use them when he said he would not use the secret files. There is no time connotation in his comment. Beware! he will use the files if Maithree and the rest lose the election.

Let us look at it from another angle. This man has kept files on some of his loyal (until last week) colleagues.  Is it not likely that he keeps files on the rest of his colleagues too? This is not different to JRJ keeping undated but signed resignation letters of the MPs of his government. Can we imagine how undignified those MPs could have been to write off their rights to an old wily fox for perks? Rajapaksha is doing it in stealth at least. Why he keeps those files? In Anura Kumara Dissanayaka’s words bambu gahandada? No, to use them when he chooses. So the claim that he won’t use them does not merit any credibility.

What is in those files? They must be full of evidence as to what crimes they have committed, what finances they have misappropriated, what powers they have abused, what state resources they have squandered, what undemocratic, unfair, unethical, dishonest etc. means they have used to win elections and to remain in power etc, certainly not how they have made love to their wives or how they sucked ice cream on hot days. It is apparent that those offenses have been committed with the full knowledge of the main man. Then,is he not complicit in those and therefore partly guilty?  If the files contain such evidence, those files could have been handed over to the law enforcing authorities long time ago. But as long as the culprits remained loyal to MR and his family (means ready to lick their boots or ready to be subservient) the files remain under lock and key.

The opposition could now seek to learn the contents of those files. MR is in no position to reveal what the contents are. The moment he reveals anything to that effect the country will cry “what the hell were you doing all this time protecting those crooks? In other words Thamuse mechchara Kal polgewada?

      Rajapaksa’s Bambu Files

      Anura Yapa ‘s appointment not according to constitution : Elections commissioner rejects

      http://lankaenews.com/news/149

      (Lanka-e-News- 25.Nov.2014, 8.05AM) The SLFP general secretary Maithripala Sirisena who was appointed as the opposition common candidate , has still not quit the SLFP. On the very first day after becoming the common candidate , he revealed that he is still the SLFP gen. secretary.

      At the SLFP headquarters , Darley road, and on the very following day at the Temple Trees , it was disclosed that Maithripala had been dismissed from the secretary post and in his place, Anura Priyadharshana Yapa has been appointed . This was announced by Yapa himself at a media conference convened by him. In addition, to add flavor to this announcement an assist. secretary was brought to that meeting.

      When the letter of the new appointment was sent to the Elections commissioner , the latter has rejected and returned it , according to inside sources of the elections commissioner’s department.

      Under the SLFP constitution , there are provisions to appoint an assist. Secretary if there is no secretary. Thereafter , summon the SLFP all island working committee and decide to appoint the assist. Secretary or any other to the secretary post. Subsequently that appointment must be ratified by the party convention within a year.

      Unfortunately , it is the characteristic Rajapakse lawlessness that had taken over this situation here too.

      The Rajapakse regime had got perturbed and puzzled when the elections commissioner had stated , such a secretary sought to be appointed from activities outside cannot be accepted. Based on sources from within , now measures are being taken to fetch the members of the All Island working committee who are spread across the country by helicopters to Temple Trees and get their signatures.

      In any event , the group that accepts Maithripala Sirisena as general secretary still , has declared that they would go to court against the new appointment. No matter what, Anura Yapa took up duties yesterday(24) morning as the general secretary. Yet, even at noon , the SLFP administrative secretary Ari was seen going behind the members of the All Island SLFP working committee and trying to obtain their signatures, in Parliament .

    I AGREE, WHY DID HE KEEP THE FILES SO LONG? ISN’T THIS BLACKMAIL? WAS’NT HE BLACKMAILING THEM ALL ALONG? ISN’T HE BLACKMAILING THE OTHER’S? HE CANNOT HAVE FILES ONLY ON THOSE WHO CROSSED OVER? HE SHOULD HAVE THE FILES OF OTHER’S INCLUDING BASIL, CHAMAL, GOTA, NAMAL AND OTHER’S in the family,?

    THERE ARE MANY IMPLICATIONS IN THIS STATEMENT OTHER THAN BLACKMAIL! WHEN THE HEAD OF STATE IS AWARE OF CORRUPTION BY OTHER’S, HE SHOULD ACT IMMEDIATELY TO PROSECUTE ALL! HE CANNOT MAKE PUBLIC STATEMENTS AND STATE HE IS NOT A MAN WHO TAKE REVENGE !!!! HOW CAN HE WATCH IT HAPPEN? OBVIOUSLY OTHER’S TOO HAVE FILES ON THE BIG BROTHER?

    Well. What are these files all about? They have to be bad deeds; misdeeds; corruption, etc. etc. of the MPs/Ministers. So, why no action was taken about them??? Is remaining with the Govt. and being loyal to the President a “License” to commit such crimes????

    Isn’t there a law covering those who conceal evidence of crimes and their culpability for such behaviour?
    Why don’t those who are so ready to run to the (Mohan Peiris) Supreme Court lodge an action demanding that MR produce evidence of criminality that he claims to have and/or prosecute him for concealing evidence of criminality?

    Eboladipathi, Percy Mahendra Rajapaksha keeping those files to use the when his piles starting to bother him uncontrollably. There is a special File on Maithree and that one is not for Bambu Gahanna but Bambuwata Gahanna.

    If we know Eboladipathi he never seek revenge from his enemies as he is Sri Rohana Janaranjana, Vishwa Keerthi Sri Thri Singhalaadeeshwara, Sri Lanka Raja Wansa Wibhushana, Dharmadveepa Chakrawarthi, Janamula, Manomula, Sanwedee, Nihathamani, Palapurudu Savior of the Nation.

    Yes the files themselves should be used to prosecute MR. But the sadness is, that the judges all the way to CJ, prosecutors, juries, police and armed services, as well as the para military and political thugs are in MRs pockets. o who is going to dish out justice and enforce it? There is no guarantee that if MS wins, MR would bow out. he has too much at stake and his brother has the power and capability to mobilize the army and police, and Vermyns like Mervyn has the army of criminal hooligans in his power. We are not a democracy as a lot of people would love to believe. We have a regime similar to what was Hitler’s Germany.

    The UNP says today that they will protect the govt top dogs from facing an UN war crimes investigation and charges, if they come to power. If protecting criminals is what the new govt too is offering then to hell with the UNP. Aren’t those innocent Tamil people who wEre slaughtered allegedly by the LTTE and govt forces towards the end of the war, citizens of this country? and don’t their surviving family have a right to seek justice?
    Will the UNP also tell the citizens of SL that Mahinda and his family of thieves who have raped the coffers of this country will not be investigated for their crimes?
    We the citizens of this country need justice and this must be started by bringing criminal charges against Mahinda Rajapakse and his family. Only then will other politicians who have similar inclinations to commit crime get the message that you cannot outrun the law. A total cleansing of our political culture must take place with the new govt taking office. WE DO NOT NEED MORE ROGUES, MURDERERS, RAPISTS, DRUG LORDS AND CASINO MOGULS IN THE NEW GOVT.

    What about Helping Hambantota!
    MR talking nonsense. When the new govt forms they should immediately reopen Helping Hambantota case as former CJ says that there was enough evidence to convict MR.

    Do the files on President Rajapaksa and his brothers differ in content from the files that he is keeping on others? For one thing the amounts plundered will be unimaginably higher. By announcing the existence of these files on his present and former colleagues President Rajapaksa has truly opened a can of worms. He is not the only person keeping files on others. The public has files on all those who plundered the nation. The public will decide which kick is suitable to whom. This is only a matter of time.

    This is clearly an embarrassment for the Nation of Sri Lanka and its citizens when the Executive Head of the Nation makes such a statement.
    Not only is he making a mockery of his status as President but equally insulting the intelligence of the Sri Lankans who he expects to vote for him.
    Shocking!

    ” that Suren Surendiren’s unwise and out of place comment would be used by the regime to deceive the masses “

    He’s bought the dummy sold to him by the ‘common’ opposition, and could not keep it secret. His acolytes seem to believe that the LTTE has already won and are busy rewriting the constitution.

    the gang leader and the gang. 1st he utterly fails in his leadership to make sure his miisters serve the people, he allows them to be crooks, doesn’t stop them or hand them over to law enforcement, he keeps secret files, and uses them as trump cards, all at the expense of ordinary folk. blessed indeed are the sri lankans to have the rajapaksa clan sucking the country’s blood dry.
