Mahinda’s Coup

Military surrounding the hotel that housed Sarath Fonseka on election day

Generally the guy with the guns has staged the coup and the other guy is in jail. Well, Mahinda Rajapaksa has all the guns and Sarath Fonseka is in jail. Coup is not the right word because that’s short and sweet. This government take over is long and getting more and more bitter by the day.

What Coup

A coup is generally when a small group takes control of a country, usually through the military. They occupy key institutions, take over the media and then get legitimacy through fear and boots on the ground. Mahinda’s been doing that for years, so it’s not really a coup. It’s more of a long filing away.

Sarath Fonseka, on the other hand, gave up all the guns and power to run for office. He occupied no office, wore no uniform and his big ‘friend’ in the media was The Sunday Leader (so who needs enemies). He wasn’t able to use state resources in his campaign, he had to beg for personal security and as the votes were being counted, he was the one under siege.

However, we are so far down the rabbit hole that up seems down, right seems wrong, left seems right. Mahinda Rajapakse has used war to consolidate control over state institutions, he used those institutions to run an unfair election, then, finally, he politicised the noble military to seal the deal. Surrounding and arresting the opposition. And yet Sarath Fonseka is the one who was plotting a coup.

What Democracy

In reality, Sarath Fonseka is the only one that resisted this long and pervasive coup. He’s the only one who tried the democratic route, who gave up the perks and who — in his clumsy and embarrassing way — tried to make a change. Ranil was too weak and selfish to even run, he seems content to let the country suffer until power falls into his lap. It was only Sarath who put everything on the line, and now he’s the one in jail.

In a sense, we’re all in jail with him. Our Constitution is dead and — under Mahinda — not coming back. One family controls most of our budget, they have bought over most in parliament with perks and corrupted the judiciary to do whatever they say. A year after war’s end, we are still in a state of emergency, and this is the state that has emerged.

What Emerged

This has been happening for years, but we could really see it during the election. That’s when the state and Mahinda became one, and when the guns came out. Not against terrorism or the LTTE, but against legitimate opposition.

Sarath Fonseka ran legit. I don’t know if he ran fully legit, but he didn’t spend taxpayer money and use taxpayer resources to spread his name and lies around the country. This ‘coup leader,’ on election night didn’t surround any government institutions with guns. I was five feet from him at a press conference and he could barely secure his perimeter, let alone Temple Trees. So how on earth is he the one that staged the coup? It’s Mahinda that’s taken unconstitutional control of this government, largely with public consent.

Who Cares

This has been happening for so long (and so well) that no one really cares. For many, however, this has just gone too far. General Sarath Fonseka is still a soldier who has served and almost died twice for his country. He was a decent man who, rather than abusing the uniform, took it off to run for office. Whether you supported him or not, he is a brave Sri Lankan and he has done nothing to threaten or tarnish our country. Indeed, he may be the only one still defending it.

Yet such is the power of Mahinda (and fear) that he’s also done a clean sweep of our minds. People defend this arbitrary address saying that everyone is subject to the law. OK. What about the President and his family? People defend it saying Fonseka would talk about war crimes. Then are we all complicit in a cover-up? All of these arguments ring hollow. The only thing behind it is that Mahinda wills it and Mahinda is the state.

He took over the state under guise of war, used the state to campaign, and now he’s using the military to crush the opposition. If that’s not a coup, I don’t know what is.

I pretty much live on the fence and I try to understand where people are coming from, but this is just nonsense. I don’t expect a liberal democracy anytime soon, but I also don’t want to live in an Orwellian world where opposition is coup and oppression democracy. It’s not. This arrest is blatantly political, the language is backwards and something is seriously wrong. I’m not planning a coup here, but I’d just like the opposition back. Free Fonny!

    It is common for the loosing party in Lanka to cry foul. Peripharal election rigging is somewhat the norm in Lanka which may or may not have altered the election results in the past.

    The Presidential election rigging is in a different level. Look at the following details to decide for yourself.

    1. Before the election one of the prominent ministers said that the ‘Government departments, the power and the army all are theirs and hence we WILL NOT loose the election’ !

    3. Army divisions brought close to Colombo. Why ???

    3. Election Commissioner was held captive at the temple trees. Why ???

    4. Election commissioners wife and daughter held captive at Water Edge Complex in Kotte. Why ???

    5. Computerisation of results done at ICT venue which is headed by Presidents secretary Mr Lalith Weeratunga. Previously this was at the University of Colombo. Independent and impartial????

    6. Entire Rupavahini staff sent on leave except for a few. Why???

    7. Results released from mobile TV station from Temple trees .. Why???

    8. Basil Rajapaksa ( reputation tarnished by massive corruption allegations) has been at the Election centre… denied by the govt. but seen and reported by Times correspondent …. Nothing sinister?????

    9.District voter turn out in Colombo district reported as 65% at the end of polls… but final result was for 78% meaning almost 200,000 added votes for Mahinda Rajapaksa
    Similarly in Hambantota voter turn out 71% but final result for 80.7 %. hence added number 42,000 votes.

    10. Ballot paper bundle found contained 67 papers marked for Gen. Fonseka instead of 50. ( normally bundles of 50 ). This is the only one found…. who to say about all other such bundles? By law these have to be preserved for 6 months… Why try to destroy them if it was a clean election where victor had a thumping majority?

    11. Opposition hotel totally surrounded by special forces… meaning that there was no escape if they were victorius though it was impossible under the circumstances.

    12. Election commissioner still refusing to hand over carbon copies of counting centres. If it was truly a thumping majority why can’t he clear all doubts by giving simple proof ?

    Each of above in isolation could be dismissed but the whole picture proves beyond doubt that the BIGGEST ROBBERY IN LANKAN HISTORY HAS TAKEN PLACE…….

    by a President and his family gang who had the blessings of 20,000 monks just before the election!!!

    Election technically won on paper, but to put the final nail in the coffin was one of the reasons to arrest the General to prevent the election petition but under the pretex of many other allegations!!!!!

    Truth has been given a chance by the supreme court. Hope the TRUTH will prevail !

    • jm

      Very convincing argument provided facts are correct, hope these will be presentended when election petition is taken up

    • Sasitha

      @Joseph convincing argument. But the none of your points are accurate.

    • Eelam Dreamer

      I agree with you, you correct.

    • Jonie

      I totaly agree Joseph. Truth will come.

    • Ex Soldier

      One thing to add:-

      Why Election Commissioner’s two statements just after election and few days after are contradictory?

      • Charles

        No sir, he did not contradict. He repeated his comment about misuse of state media and delay in removing cut-outs. He explained in detail how the counting was arranged and confirmed that the final tally was correct. He completely debunked the rumour that he and his family has been abducted.

        The only contradiction was a personal matter; that he has agreed to stay on for the General Election. Hardly the sort of thing that a man who had been abducted and released would do.

        So Mr. Joseph, come up with something better.

        • Guest

          Charles,
          You forgot.
          EC said in his first interview “I couldn’t save any single ballot box”, and in the second he confirmed the election process (except misuse of state media etc for propaganda) was clean.
          Is it a contradiction to you? For me and for many well.
          Also his expressions seemed not doing an honest statement at the second and in a very confused situation at the first.
          I think this is something better.

      • Charles

        What EC said was that some people think that his task is only to protect ballot boxes but in time to come he may not be able to do that even. EC’s speach is on YouTube. Watch it and listen carefully.

    • sfran

      Dear Joseph
      Voter turnout has been calculated with the registered votes against total polled votes (by general polling) but the final district results include the postal votes so there would be a deviation between total vote turn out on the election day and the turn out in the district final results.
      In the general polling – postal votes are not included so the percentage would be low

      Meanwhile we should consider the rejected votes in each electorates-
      For example in Digamadulla district total rejected votes 2912 out of total polled votes 309474 according to the official results released by Dept. of Baselections. out of the 2912 total rejected votes The Ampara electorate takes only 608 rejected votes where more than 100 000 votes have been polled in the electorate.- Literacy in the area gone to sky due to mahindha chindhana

    What a gem of a thought though frightful:
    Yes – we ARE ALL in jail – democray, human rights, sanctity of life, the Snagha, The Church..etc etc

    It’s time the Sri Lankans awake to this horrible reality.

  3. When uneducated politicians come into power they does not like to leave the chair unless they are being chased. Now only the public had to come out with guts to defend the democracy in the country. The plan coup was originated on the 24th Jan. 2009 by the brothers of the regime. Now even after the brother arresting the opposition candidate but the president says he did not know. What a sad story. This is better to say to the Mynas or Kondayas from South who will belive. Very soon everything will come into light. Modaya

    Where did you get this Crystal ball? Can you prove any of these allegations? Upul Jayasuriya, Nirmala Perera et al visited the EC & they found him dsfe & well. Dr Weerakoon says there was not computing errors. You are just parroting what the others say. Even Ranil accepted the election was free & fair. After only JVP & SF said the results could not be accepted he started barking. 2 Independent observers said the election was fair & no prpblem with the result. You are crying foul.

    • Guest

      You are also parroting. Ranil is backing up the election fraud petition.
      Oneday, this crystal ball will be clear!

    Lies oft repeated become fact. This is what is happening to an egotistical General who was willing to say anything and everything to different audiences and in his vanity thought he could not lose. He is more like General Patton not like Eisenhower

  11. Damian

    The man who said that ” I will be the Defence Secretary who ever wins the election” is the Coup leader. Government should get court approval to arreset him, unless he proved himself as an acute metally retarded person.

    IT IS ONLY MENTALLY DERANGED AND MENTALLY UNSTABLE PEOPLE WHO
    WILL BELIEVE, THE STORY OF A COUP BY SARATH FONSEKA. IF HE DID
    WANT TO STAGE A “COUP” HE HAD ENOUGH OPPORTUNITIES WHILE HE
    WAS CHIEF OF DEFENCE STAFF,. THE TIME MAHINDA AND SARATH WERE PATTING EACH OTHER ON THE WAR VICTORY AND THEY WERE BUDDIES.
    MOST PEOPLE DO NOT KNOW HOW A COUP IS STAGED. GADDAFI WAS JUST
    A LIEUTENANT WHEN HE OVERTHREW, KING IDRIS OF LIBYA, .IT WAS COLONEL NASSER, WHO ALONG WITH HUSNY MUBARAK AND A FEW YOUNG OFFICERS, ALONG WITH AN UNWILLING GENERAL WHO OVERTHREW KING FAROUK OF EGYPT.LATER NASSER AND THE YOUNG OFFICERS DITCHED HIM, IN IRAQ THE 12 YEAR OLD KING FAISAL WAS OVERTHROWN BY SOME ARMY OFFICERS. CLOSER HOME, WE HAVE SEEN THE AYYUB KHANS, ZIA UL HAQ AND MUSHARRAF.
    IN SRI LANKA WE HAD TWO ATTEMPTED COUPS, BUT FAILED, BECAUSE
    THEY GET TOGETHER PLAN SOMETHING AND THERE WILL SOMEONE
    WHO WILL LET THE “CAT OUT OF THE BAG” TYPICALLY “SRI LANKAN”
    THE FIRST COUP FAILED BECAUSE A POLICE OFFICER LEAKED IT OUT BECAUSE HIS FATHER IN LAW WAS ON THE LIST OF ARRESTS.
    THE SECOND ONE TOO FAILED FOR SIMILAR REASONS..
    IF SENIOR MILITARY OFFICERS WHO WERE STANDING TO ATTENTION
    AND SALUTING SARATH FONSEKA ARE SPEAKING DISPARAGINGLY OF
    HIM AND TREATING HIM IN THIS MANNER, THIS MUCH “TALKED OF COUP”
    WOULD HAVE FAILED.
    INSPITE OF ROBBING THE SRI LANKANS OF THEIR VICTORY, IT IS THE
    PRESIDENT, WHO HAS STAGED A COUP AND SUCCEEDED, I HOPE.!!!
    IF THIS IS DEMOCRACY, TO HELL WITH IT.

  14. According to the Government and the Sri Lanka Army, an Army officer is governed by Army Law until he completes six months after his retirement. This applies to Sarath Fonseka as well. The former Army Commander tried to take us before the international war tribunal. He said instructions were given to shoot those who came with white flags. According to the international military law, this is a very serious offence.

    When a former Army Commander makes such a statement, it poses a big problem to the Army. Therefore, the Army should conduct an investigation regarding that issue. Fonseka through this statement has inflicted a severe damage to the Army and on war heroes. Before he was arrested , he said that he would reveal everything before an international court.

    He is going to betray the war heroes who made a supreme sacrifice to defend our motherland. Fonseka should have been told “ Even if I am imprisoned or killed, I will never betray my war heroes”.

    He attempted to underestimate the great military victory and make us pariahs before the world. Is it an offence to conduct an investigation on such a person? The steps taken by the Government to arrest Fonseka and conduct an investigation are quite justifiable.

    • Justice

      You mean the “war heroes” are actually criminals who commited crimes against the international military law?

      Fonseka did not make us pariahs before the world, the “war heroes” did that. Fonseka is only a witness of that.

      • Casual Observer

        As Gota points out to the BBC “I will never permit any investigation on HR abuses in SL”
        The ” I ” speaks volumes…seems that Gota speaks for the entire nation and admits that there is much to cover up.

  15. Rahula

    This is a very correct article written by a writer who has a backbone. Secondly no one can challange to the questions raised by Mr.Joseph. One ex-soldier has added one question joseph has missed.
    “Why Election Commissioner’s two statements just after election and few days after are contradictory?”
    This presidential election was a bloody highway robbery in broad day light.

  16. Charles

    Dear Vintage Voter,
    There are coups that have succeeded and coups that have failed. There are coups that are planned but never implemented. There are coups that have been put down by pre-emptive action as in 1962. And there imaginary coups as the ‘kakussi’ coup of 1968.
    We, the general public have to wait and see what comes out of the investigations before jumping into conclusions.

    Judging by the facts given in the Daily Mirror article by DBS Jeyaraj, a thorough investigation is certainly warranted.
    One main obstacle against staging a conventional coup in Sri lanka is not what the VintageVoter has given; it is that India will not allow it.

    Then we come to yet another type of coup: coups that do not look like a coup, like the one that happened 2-3 years ago in Bangladesh. What one has is a military government in civilian clothing with all political activities banned.

    • lankawatcher

      Charles, I refer to your last paragraph. This is exactly what we have now. MR has staged his own coup. This man who came to power through democratic means is now destroying democracy.

  17. jayathilaka

    Congratulations for the writer for the well written article.and for the courage he mustered to reveal te truth despite of threats by the government. the content of the letter is the real truth.of what happened and is happening isn Sri lanka. the one time LTTE leaders Karuna amman has been offered ministerial poss while Gen: Fonseka has been labled as a traitor.and now been jailed for fase charges .truth will come out soon .people in Sri lanka will be able experince more and more of unfair ruthless acts by Rajapaksha regime in the future.

    • Vathy

      Remember that Karuna is ready to dance to Mahinda’s tunes. If Sarath has accepted the position given to him and said “yes Sir” he might be a minister too. That is how there were more than 112 ministers.

  18. Prem

    Put karuna in jail and release SF.
    If karuna can betray 22 year old leader, he is capable of stabing MR soon. wake up MR supporters

  19. mujib

    Dear Charles,

    I wish to tell ALL srilanks ,whetever is their Polical side is, DO NOT Trust people like DBS.Jeyaraj. When you read his writting you should remember that you are being stuffed with RAW dunk. ALL srilankans should remeber and be warned that ALL the current sufferings and the Maladies that are affecting SRILANKA are caused by INDIA. India is Friend neither to Sinhalease nor to Tamils and never to Muslims. They will always keep your country in peril in what ever form , they will make the Tamils fight Sinhalease or Sinhalease fight sinhalease or muslims fight sinhalease or tamils…becuase ONLY then they can fish in the trouble water. If you really look carefully , there is a hidden hand of India behind the current problem…so you should be ready to see lots of DBS JayaRAW’ articles…

    • Vathy

      well said. I am happy to find a comment an appropriate comment about India. All these days I was the only one sending such comments.

      • mujib

        I am serious….., Look around in our region…there are problems in ALL the neighboring countries of India. Do you think it is just happening on it’s own…, no way!! Srilankans should wake up , be they Sinhalease or Tamils or Muslims and together destroy the indian dream of controlling Srilanka. Lankans , should get all the necessary helps from China to stop India. Singhalese , people should understand one thing clearly…when the SL Tamils were having just few Political quarrels with in their own country…who encouraged it and turned it in to Militancy ?, who trained and armed the unsuspecting Tamil young men to fight the Singhalese , just to teach a lesson to Singhalese for NOT pleasing them and following their whims and wishes ?(and definitely NOT because they genuinely wanted to help Tamils) .and then when they realized the Tamil men , whom they trained and armed not listening to them they betrayed the entire SL Tamil community ( NOT because they liked Sinhalease or wanted to help them) !!! Sinhalease should not be fooled in to thinking that the Indians are NOW friendly to them! India can never be a genuine friend to any one in SRILANKA or in any one in this region!! We all know very well , SL Tamil Community is more closer and tied up to India because of it’s culture, religion, language ( there is a huge Tamil speaking state in India ) , Yet , India guided them in to disastrous future and betrayed them to the death!! The funny thing is …still there are sizable portion of the Tamil brothers who think that India will safe guard them…these dumbs do not learn ! Any way , all I wanted to tell the sinhalease and Muslims …if India can do this to Tamils in a blink of an eye…imagine what it will do to you!!! INDIA is no one’s Friend in this region. Sinhalease , Tamils ,Muslims ….get together with China and Pakistan and teach a bloody lesson to India…so that it will never ever mess up with other countries.

        • Prem

          Well said. India is a slow poison for Sri Lanka. All the Sri Lankans (Tamils, Muslims, Burgers, Sinhalese and others) should unite and kill the INDIA poison

  20. priyantha

    The law definitely is applied differently depending on the company you keep.

    SB was imprisoned a few years ago for insulting the judiciary when he made a speech in anger against some supreme court decisions. (He was in the opposition then)

    Same joker (this time in the ruling party) admits on national television to election fraud and intimidation at two elections. The result – complete pardon for his insult of the judiciary and appointment as the UNF organiser for an electorate.

    Department of AG and police – are you really deaf, dumb and blind (Physically and mentally handicapped) or merely a lap dog after a few bones?

    40 000, innocent tamils killed by these mother Lanka Fu*kers within few days.
    Sarath Fonseka and Mahinda can not escape form those dead souls.

    • pissu balla

      And how many innocent sinhalese did your Sun God kill, during this period, you Fu*ker?

      • Justice

        Pissu Balla,

        Actually not a single innocent sinhalese was killed during that period (few days ahead of May 18, 2009 to that date). But a week or two ahead of it, at least more than 5,000 soldiers were killed by – guess what – Air Force poison gas when it was sprayed to kill elite LTTE units that completely surrounded key military commanders who were very close to the LTTE leadership.

  22. Silly Lanka = Yakkos Paradise.

    Now kill & eat each other yo cannibals.

    • amaru

      Dont forget we descended from the Yakka Clan. The Veddahs are still with us to remind us what we will be if not for the White Man putting us into trousers. Despite the apparel and the long-gone comb in the hair, we are still basically cannibals and animals in attire. Just look at our politicians. Dont they spell it all.

  23. Bashir

    Does the Supreme Court have the ‘crystal ball’? Hope Joseph’s questions are also given consideration by the defence as they seem valid points to be raised. Justice should not only be done but appear to be done. The whole episode somehow smacks of low level pettiness unbecoming of a Presidential election. After all was it not the first Executive President who proudly exclaimed that he can do anything now except change a woman into a man (or was it man into a woman?). So Sri Lanka has to live with it and Presidential antics until it is binned. It is clearly a case of absolute power corrupts absolutely!

  24. A year after war’s end, we are still in a state of emergency, and this is the state that has emerged. it should also be added the defence levy is still on a year after the war’s end. a pity on both counts.

    what does all these hooligan acitions of teh rogue regime portend to the nation. a really, really dark era, darker than the 88, 89 jvp terror era. then there was a genuine problem for the government to let loose it’s cannons. now, how can this rogue regime justify all it’s actions which are totally unwarranted, illegal and clearly despotic.

  25. S.Sriranjan

    Free Movement of Voters and Contestants are essential for a fair Election.But in the last Presidential Election Free movement of opposition was restricted by abusing the Goverment forces and impartiality was colapsed and The Commissioner of Election was compelled to release a biased result???

  26. Peter

    Mujib! If I may add, it is heartening to know that every body is beginning to understand who the real culprit behind all these troubles. No one but India. It all started just prior to the independence. Indian leaders at that time insisted on the British to annex Ceylon as a state along with Pakistan and Andaman islands. But Jinna though initially agreed but when he realised what is coming he insisted on a division., though people like Mahatma Ghandi ( the biggest crook of all, I am saying without mixing my words. Every body thought that he is going to south Africa,risking his life to fight for the rights of the Blacks,but in fact he went to safe guard the rights of the Indians there. As claimed that he adopts only non -violent means , there was not a single occassion he condemned the activities of Subash Chandrabosh, When he joined hand with the Nazis and the Japanese the real aggressors.He allowed him to carry on thinking that the the two pronged method will be favourable to India), tried hard to fool him. Fortunately for the Ceylonese there were people like Sir.Oliver Gunatillake who stood firm and rejected the idea.( If it was the present day ‘Patriotic’ Srilanka leaders it would have been a different story). So from that time onwards Ceylon was their envy.When India ,under Indira Ghandi leaning towards the USSR and Ceylon leaning towards the west and there was a suspicion that the Trinco Naval Base may be handed over to the US, decided to act and the ethnic crisis in Srilanka was a good opportunity. They decided to use the Tamil militancy to destabilise the country. The gave training, money and weapons,clandestinely to the Tamil youths and promised them to help to achieve a seperate State. But at the sametime aware of the influence this seperate state might have on the State of Tamilnadu( already they were agitating to go seperate) they developed a contigency plan. That is to say they created a divide among the tamil militancy and paved the way for various groups like LTTE, TELO,PLOTE,EPRLF and so on., which came handy at a latter stage when the geopolitical scene changed and when Prabhaharan refused to fall in line with the Indian ambitions. So SriSabaretnam, the leader of the TELO was the blue eyed boy of the Indians compared to Prabhaharan. It was said that SriSabaretnam was able to meet Prime Minister Indira Ghandhi on a short notice.All these arrangements were their not because they loved the Tamils or they were keen on finding a solution for the Tamils,but to achieve their goal of destabilising Srilanka and bring it into the Sphere of their influence.So during the time of JRJ,Rajiv Ghandhi by armtwisting tactics send his troops into Srilanka as IPKF.It was said that Prabhaharan was kept under house arrest in NewDelhi as he opposed the deployment of the Indian Army in the North and the East.He was very reluctant to trust the Indians and he feared that he will be sidelined as against the other Indian favoured groups like TELO,PLOTE and EPRLF. But he was too shrewed for the Indians and somehow managed to come to Srilanka and went into hiding.His fear started materialising when the IPKF forced the LTTE to hand over the weapons but issued weapons to the other groups. So he decided to act against the Indians. Fortunately for him he and a great leader President Premadasa saw eye to eye on the issue of the Indian manipulation. President Premadasa implied that we Sinhalese and Tamils can have a fight on any issue but cannot allow Indians or for that matter anybody to set foot on the country. So both decided to bury their hatchet for the time being and they were hell bent on chasing the Indians out of the country. President provided all the help needed to Prabha and he while liquidating the other groups booted the Indians out, so denying the Indians the opportunity to enter the country through the back door. But alas! now they have entered the country through the front door, thanks to the present day ‘Patriotic’ Srilankan leaders. Already these leaders have started to dish out parts of Srilanka,Sampur,KKS cememt factory,KKS harbour and so on to their masters in New Delhi. The country is swamped with the RAW agents.Though the Indians said that they are prepared to work with anybody winning the Presidential elections they were much relieved that their man has become the President. They did not favour GSF as he did not express himself to the the likings of the Delhi Hanumans on his visit to India just prior to the Presidential elections. All the small countries around India ,except Srilanka who are too intoxicated about the defeat of Prabha, are fast realising the threat posed by the ulterior ambitions of India. Even a section of the Nepalis here in UK are planning to convene in London to expose this threat. One thing is for sure if the Srilankans tried to wriggle out of their grasp they will not hesistate to resurrect Prabhaharan. I am sure the ‘patriotic’ Srilankans will brush aside such suggestion as fairy tale.

    Ladies & Gents, no point barking around, the caravan goes on!
    SF supporters are “Urban Elites” , “Thambiyas”, “Eelam Dreamers” and JVP thugs. Most if not all these minorites would have fought the Eelam war only in front of the TV, blogs like this and in armchair discussions.
    The nation has spoken the rest is sour grapes, hence lets move on
