Yoshitha Given Permission To Be In His Father’s Security Team

Sri Lanka Navy has granted approval for Rajapaksa ‘prince’ Yoshitha Rajapaksa to be a member of his father’s security detail in response a request he submitted.

YoshithaYoshitha is presently on three months leave of absence and an international investigation is ongoing into the procedure followed during his recruitment to the Navy and the scholarships that had been granted to him during the Rajapaksa regime.

State Minister for Defence told earlier this week that Yoshitha has submitted a request to the Defense Ministry for him to be made part of the security team of former President Mahinda Rajapaksa.

Meanwhile the Minister also stated that a probe is being conducted into Yoshitha in collaboration with the Navy Commander on how he was relieved of duty and on how and why he was granted leave of absence without even being subjected to the inquiry that is continuing against him.

    This YahaPalanays is a BIG JOKE folks !!
    very very disgusted with how these people are conducting inquiry of Yo-SHIT-A

    This coward who joined the Navy after the war and never did any operational duty and just running with chick, rugby and CSN business and politics with the uniform should be send to the prison for a lifetime if Gen SF was to send to Welikada.

    Yahapalana – goto hell !!!!

        Matilda Ellepola and Shamil

        Both are 100% correct guysa. YahaPalanay is a BIG F—-king JOKE and should go to Hell. Definitely Ranil lived MR’s perks while he was opposition leader. Thus, he is struggling to take any action again MR and his cronies.

        Secondly, our president MS’s leadership has been destroyed and dismantled by MR many times while he was in-charge for 10 thousands miniseries. MS never been a long lasting minister for one ministry and did any thing creative. While he was in the process of doing good stuffs, here you go MR changes he leadership to the junk yard ministry. WHY? simply MR does NOT want to see MS is getting experience and building his leaderships. MR destroyed many Sri Lankan leader’s leadership except GORA, NARA, YORA, BARA, AND RORA.

        So we cannot blame MS for doing nothing under YahaPalanaya. Because he does not have leadership skills.

        Now, here is the thing, I cannot believe how in the f—king world YORA has been considered MR’s security team? This dude has jumped form Navy, did all kinds of illegal stuffs including CSN business. No one is questioning him – in this 2500 years historical proud country and (7th world) corrupted Sri lanka?

        I tell you, if this YahaPalanaya bullshit does not do any thing quickly to clean this mess, importantly, fail to take these corrupted bustards to jail, wait and see MR will win once again as Prime Minister RW will go home and smoke Ganja and President MS’s life will be utterly messed up with MR incoming to parliament and the country is once again will be screwed.

        My day of the word:
        “Jails are for Podi Simons while Jail hospital are for Tissas and Shashi”

      What the hell !!!! Do other officers get to request their place of work and whom to guard ? This is TOTALLY insane !!! sigh This man has a pending case and the Present Minister of Defense makes a mockery of the Masses who voted for MS… yes 6.2 Million voters do NOT want Yoshita in ANY prominent post… He is just like any other naval officer.. What a shame IF THIS IS WHAT YAHA PALANAYA is….I want AKD as PM.. not RW or MR.. WE need accountability.. So now he will come back from Dubai before the 3 months vacation.. are WE stupid or are the ones at the helm of the defense establishment stupid..it seems teh latter is…

      I thought Army and elite STF commandos are the ones who are in the Presidential Security and NOT Naval Officers…

      AKD and others need to get to the streets DEMANDING the removal of Yoshita….

      I have a message for Ruwan Wijewardene & rest of the “Good Governance” gang.

      You control GOSL now. Quit talking about ridding this tired country of corruption – start doing it.

      Yo Baba’s CSN deal with Sri Lanka Cricket alone is enough to arrest the guy.

      Assigning him to former Dictator’s security detail is a way of shielding Yo Baba. You cannot bamboozle the people anymore. You are being watched.

      Acrmonious arrest of Gonwansa’s wife looks like an eyewash now. Forging a passport is a crime.

      Yet, it is nothing compared to what Yo Baba & his infamous family has done over 10 years.

      Cheers!

      Even if these offsprings areb eing fed punnaku by his father the basics were not taught them – was clear leaving country for 3 months while charges could be made against ot him. It is sad to give the example that the law is special to them while any other deserters work to rule.

      I had written SO many comments to the effect that Wasims Thajudeens death was NOT an accident and that it was a murder committed by GOta’s Elite commandos on behalf of Yoshitha who set up the murder coz of the anger he had in regard to the relationship Wasim is said to have had with Yasara Abeynaike, grand daughter of Late Gamini Fonseka and daughter of Thanuja Fonseka. He was “set on fire” along with his car at Park Road colombo 5 close to Appollo Hospital and covered up as an accident..but his National ID was picked up at Balapokuna Road close to Nugegoda on the High Level Road.

      Yasara lied to the CID and to sweep the matter under the carpet, She was PACKED along with her Family to Australia to work at the SL embassy with no Protocol followed in hiring her. A few months ago she had stated that Yoshita was involved in the murder of her friend.Now she has been called back, hope the CID can grill her to come out with the facts, so the TOP officer who was assigned to Protect his dad would be court martialled and sent to jail along with Gota… new turn in teh investigation happens today…Karma is surely a B**** and will haunt them, who are involved… R>I>P Wasim and let the family be able to finally know the reason and who murdered him so that they may move on…

      Rugby player’s death was not accidental: Police
      February 26, 2015 05:06 pm
      Bookmark and Share
      An inquest into the mysterious death of former national rugby player Wasim Thajudeen has been initiated following the emergence of new information with respect to the case in the recent past, Police Spokesperson SSP Ajith Rohana said.

      The Government Analyst’s (GA) Department investigation, which moved at snail’s pace due to unknown reasons on this case, was concluded on 12 February, Ada Derana learns.

      SSP Rohana added that the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) is now investigating the case upon a directive made by the IGP since last afternoon.

      “Several scientific evidences of the GA report and the Judicial Medical Officer’s (JMO) report elaborate that this was not an ‘accidental death’. The secondary inquiries were based on the reports of GA and JMO” said Rohana.

      A senior police officer told Ada Derana that Thajudeen had had a dispute with a powerful person over a girl sometime before his mysterious death and the investigators will draw attention to this as well.

      Initially, the police predicted that Thajudeen had been driving to the airport when his car crashed into a wall killing him on the spot in Kirullapone on 17 May 2012.

      Thajudeen represented S Thomas’ College, Mount Lavinia from 2001 to 2003. He then turned out for Havelock’s SC during the 2005 season where he played in the position of wing three quarter. He was voted the Most Popular Ruggerite of the Year at the Caltex Observer Touchdown Rugby Quiz award ceremony in 2009.

      Matilda:
      While I agree with your diagnosis, I don’t think booting Sirisena and company out is the simple solution because the alternative is ……Nahinda Rajapaksa!!
      We ALL need to maintain a steady stream of informed criticism of the Yahapalanaya government and force them to get rid of these useless characters who have been put in positions of responsibility and authority purely because of “family connections” and despite their abject incompetence (if not worse!)

    I dont believe how weak the state Minister of Defense is. If an investigation is pending / on-going, who in their right minds will grant such a request for the son to be in his father’s security team.

    Wijewardene, you are disgrace to the family you were born into, didn’t realize there were such idiots like you. What is more depressing is you think you are smart and have given a right decision and the masses can be fooled by you.

    The way you were walking after paying tribute to the fallen heroes was as if the war was won under your direct command.

      Why do you all blame the state minister and not the minister of defence Maitripala who is behaving like a puppet of Ranil. People voted this guy into to implement the proposals of Maduluwawe Sobhitha Thera. This is not Yahapalanaya it is ANAGENA.

    What kind of a joke is this and seriously JVP want to support this YahaPalanaya or participate in the exec council?

          Lighter notes indeed! The USA does not have official, governmental palaces–perhaps Las Vegas does. On a more serious note: I served in the U.S. Navy for four years and as far as I am aware, there is no such thing as leave of absence, especially for a junior officer, such as a lieutenant. Has Lt. Shoshita served aboard any of the ships of the S. L. Navy? Has he qualified for officer of the deck? Has he stood 24-hour watches around the clock for 14 days and longer? Has he ever gotten dirty in the engine rooms while learning about propulsion?

    Dear YahaPalanaya Leaders

    Do not undermine the power of 5.5 millions buddhist voters are behind MR and SLFP. If you do not take concrete action to correct the psycho-path corruptions and cronyism ASAP, you will be doomed in the next general election and will be sent welikada by MR leadership. MARA, GORA and NARA are not going to wait like you YahaPalanaya Leaders. People will see you many of you in Welikada the very next day of the general election. So do some thing creative.

    If you do not take any concrete action for Tamil problem, the very people elected you, once again will decide your future and UN, US, UK, India are watching your back

    If you do not take any concrete action for Muslim problem including aluthgama and other religious places damaged issues, the very people elected you, once again will decide your future

    If you do not take any concrete action for million youths in this country who are suffering without good jobs, the very people elected you, once again will decide your future

    If you do not take any concrete action for high education/university corruptions, the very people elected you, once again will decide your future

    If you do not take any concrete action to support SF, JVP, JHU lovers and voters, the very people elected you, once again will decide your future

    Do not undermine the power of people.

    Elite, Anglicans and the Vellalas seem to be pissed off by their rogue PM’s alleged deal..

    Wait till Ranil sells his soul to cousin Chandrika and ex aide My Three to keep the rogue PM job at least for 2 years..

    27 Cabinet posts to Nimal S Silva’s cohorts who are now licking My Three backside after enjoying the best of the best for nearly 10 years using Rajapaksa.

    Plus another 30 non Cabinet ministers too ..

    Wonder how Fonseka must be feeling after all that donkey work.

    5.8 Million who voted against the rogue PM and his partner My Three are watching.

    Dr Mervyn and Thevarapperumas are in a good position to keep their posts for another two years minimum, even if they wouldn’t score in non Cabinet ministries.

    Ranil and Cousin surely have girded loins to give the Elite, Anglicans and the Vellalas Good Governance, as the Hindustan report says..

    This is a wrong decision that will boomerang on those who did this cowardly shameless deed. It was said that there was an investigation was on to find out how he got enlisted. Till the inquiry is over he must be pushed to Karainagar or some place like that as he lived in clover when other young fellows worked,
    He was sent to DARTMOUTH the most prestigious Naval Academy at great cost to the tax [payer not to look after his father a defeated thug.

    If they do not take action soon of what they told the Masses during election time, they people will give them the correct answer at the G.E. to come.

    Like the Ceylinco slogan (Big or Small Ceylinco protects them all)no, but they ruined them all, So this is what RW is trying to do to the Rajapakse’s battalion. WE CITIZENS ARE ALL DISGUSTED.

    Dad (Mahinda Rajapakse) flew to London at state expense for his sons convocation.

    His visit was entirely a private one but at the cost of the state.

    He did not have any official meetings with the British government and was not given the protection needed for a state leader by the British government.

    Any inquiry in Sri Lanka must investigate this abuse by Mahinda.

    On the same principle Mervyn Silva’s
    son Malaka should be made the bodyguard
    for his father and paid from state
    funds. There is little difference
    between Malaka and Yoshitha. The latter
    enjoyed more power and thus got away
    with many things.
