According to the FCID, electronic emails had verified that Yoshitha Rajapaksa had functioned as the chairman of the television channel, while Nishantha Ranatunga was the CEO, and Rohan Welivita, Kavishan Dissanayake, Ravinath Fernando and Shadiya Karunajeewa were founding directors of the company, which led to the arrests, after they failed to furnish proper details over how they found the initial capital amounting to Rs. 234 million, and a further US $ 2.3 million, to fund the channel.

    Bring Yasara, the other senior executive, in for questioning, and even lock her up. She will formally spill the beans. Yoshita will be fixed. RIP!

    Good news. please take the telephone away from this criminal and stop allowing the pig to have his meals from home. Why give preferential treatment to this bum because he is the son of the deposed king. All criminals should be given the same treatment with no exceptions. This is what the public want to see happen in SL. Good to see the judiciary doing its job properly without any political interference. Hope this guy has a long stay in prison with all the other allegations that have been made and will be proved. Time for the paksas to shut up and be made accountable.

      No men, even if we are against MR, we must not revenge on young chaps. Not for rest of life, but to learn him a lession few years would be sufficient. But I wish NamalBaby to see behind bars for all the frauds he has made in public. He is so swollen as if the boy is not even passed olevels. lIKE FATHER LIKE SON

        The country is learning fast that the rule of law is coming about. Accused are beginning to know that that they are equal before the law.

        Judges neither fear nor favour the Executive, nor do they show any shade of vengefulness. However much MR may bark about revenge, nobody takes it.
        Judges are showing their mettle and the once too powerful are in tremors.

        Whether he is the son of MR or he is a young man. It is nececessary to ensure that his matter is dealt with acccording to the law of the country as it will be done in the case of other ordinary people. The ‘Law of the Jngle’ system that was practised during the MR regime should be completely done away with if the country should move forward as one that is ruled by law and justice.

    Obviously, President Rajapaka and his family members never thought this will happen to them. They were too confident about their political power. How they came to such a conclusion after finishing the war against the Western Countries’ wishes? War winning President ended up in a disaster; even though he had hundreds of advisers. Tamil have paid for their ignorance. Mahinda Rajapaksa is paying for it. Let’s wait and see where Ranil will end up. Eventually, leaders will pay for their ignorance when they ignore smart Lankans.

      Not just one but several dozens of abuses – of high profile nature. how come he deliberately have ignored..

      a) It was not Namal or Yoshita babies but as a father of 3 should have made his offpsrings clear about the law and order prevailing for any one working for the forces

      TOday, his reactions – even today, are like the law should not be any validity for him and his family since his term put the end to the long driven war.

      b) Young chaps – with law IQ – Why I am saying this is not even having OLVELS but to appoint to the navy and send him on the cost of govt to undegro trainings that skilled candidates are subjected to… are these not blunders ?

      c) Amount US dollar 2.3 million – where was this sum coming from ? Why to now, father or son or anyone in that family fail to share the proper answer ?

      d) And while being registered to Navy to leave the country for vacations without getting them approved properly going thorugh the navy regulations – was clear to father for sure, but as a minister of defence he could raise the question….

      why MR failed to react respecting law of the nation ? How stupid this man should have been ? He can please villagers in Hambantota but nobody else I guess..

    What we see is a ding dong battle between the deposed MR family and the fragile, disunited Yahaapalanaya crowd. The arrest of young Yoshita is a message to MR the Sirisena team is under pressure from the UN and the outside world to bring to book the killers of civilians during the 2009 period. The added emphasis is “stop your efforts to come back working the Sinhalese against the Tamils and the Muslims” Bringing in the killer General is a sure signal in this on going battle. If the Rajapakses don’t slow down the order will be – next to take Namal in.
    Next in line among the biggies – Mrs. R, BR, GR in that order – all of whom have left clear tracks of their culpability. Finally,
    MR himself. This will appear to look like the UN has called for this.

    MR made many tens of thousands of innocent families cry. Now it is the turn of his children and, later himself. As a Buddhist, he cannot be ignorant of the way the karmic force works. This a good lesson for all our crooked political leaders. There is no shortage of this commodity in the present leadership lot.

    As the Chinese say “we are onto interesting times”
