The Sunday Leader

Seven Soldiers detained for the murder of Lasantha

Seven soldiers belonging to the Sri Lanka Army’s Military Intelligence Unit will continue to be detained as investigations continue into the murder of Sunday Leader Editor Lasantha Wickrematunge.  The seven suspects are being held for further questioning by the Terrorist Investigations Department and the Criminal Investigations Department.

The seven soldiers have been separated from an original seventeen taken into police custody as evidence unfolds which may link the soldiers to the murder of Wickrematunge, detectives said. 

Lakshman Hulugalle, Director General for the Media Centre for National Security  (MCNS) yesterday said that ten out of this seventeen have been released and are free to go back to their duties.

Hulugalle further denied that the former head of military intelligence, Major General Amal Karunasekera was last week placed under “Open Arrest” and is being held at the Pannagoda Army camp as part of investigations into the murder of Wickrematunge. 

Sources however revealed to The Sunday Leader that the investigation is also focusing on the Head Quarters Battalion Account which is directly under the purview of the sitting Army Commander whose prerogative it is to dispose of the monies in this account. Sleuths are investigating why and how General Karunasekera transferred a significant sum of monies to the army’s Head Quarters Battalion Account during the period when Wickrematunge was assassinated and Sarath Fonseka was Commander.

        Protest against three Majors General at the Ananda-Nalanda match

        The police was called in to intervene in case any fighting erupted at the annual Ananda-Nalanda cricket encounter that took place last week. A tense situation has erupted at the venue when supporters of General Sarath Fonseka had raised objections to a proposal made to acknowledge the services rendered by three old Anandians and Army Majors General Prasanna Silva, Chagi Gallage and Kamal Gunaratne at the annual Ananda-Nalanda cricket encounter.
        It is learnt that while the cricket match was in progress, the organizers have stopped the band that was playing in the Anandians’ tent and had called on the three distinguished old boys, Army Majors General Prasanna Silva, Chagi Gallage and Kamal Gunaratne, to come on stage for everyone to thank them for their services rendered in defeating the LTTE.

        At that time a senior police officer who had arrived at the venue before the three majors general had said, “The ‘four star’ general, who always came for the match when he was in Sri Lanka is not here today. The most distinguished old boy, who completely wiped out the LTTE is today in jail. It is this ‘four star’ general whop made these three majors general. These three betrayed that great leader. Did Ananda produce only these three? How many other war heroes have been produced by the school? How many have sacrificed their lives for the country? Therefore, we are not ready to show our acknowledgment to these three majors general who betrayed the general. The true hero is in jail and these are just cardboard heroes. Long live our ‘four star’ general.”

        Interestingly, no one had disturbed the speech made by this senior police officer and even the four “papare” bands that were playing in the tent had stopped. After hearing the speech, the three majors general had returned to their seats as if nothing had happened.

        The match organizers had requested that all old boys from the two schools who are also forces personnel to not bring any fire arms into the match venue and had also requested the police to be on alert.

        Hello!

        well didn’t the Sunday leader editor her self declare that this paper has made a conscious decision to be biased towards a certain political party? this paper is good as those political posters we see on walls.

    • Felix

      Sunday Leader will always lick the Anti-Rajapaksha boot no matter what. What a shame…

      A JUDICIAL SYSTEM IN PERIL. ACCUSATIONS OF THE POOR SOLDIERS, IN A MUTT AND JEFF SYSTEM OF RAJAPAKSE’S

      In all political spectrums the finest is the mud slinging campaign, the Pros and Cons. Thus is the finer sides of a democracy, But in Sri Lanka, over the years there seem to be an immense mix up between the State and the Judiciary Temple through Intervention and Intimidation of the Judges, some bought some connivers. Shame on a century old and proud Judicial system.
      Murderers, wrongdoers, Thieves, common criminals have been acquitted solely through the intervention by the State apparatus. IF THEY BELONGED TO THE RIGHT FAMILY.

      A RATWATTE, in the arena is like having O.J. Simpson running for President and this is Sri Lanka. A new Motto can be replaced in the Judicial Coat of Arms, You support, You kill, We Acquit.

      Strangely enough Master seems to have a great deal of cash to throw around to the hounds, yes there is his base of supporters who love the President and Cherish him, these we have to respect. Once when these huge masses of stolen wealth are no more, the hounds that show the Piece of meat, left with an empty hand and a bone to suck shall turn against the master, A 2/3 Majority has got to be sustained and if the poor and the needy have only a bone to suck.
      There is an old saying even Ali Baba the chief of forty thieves was finally apprehended. Money… Money…. Prosperity….

      • Even murderers and murderous wives of politicians were pardoned and set free by this Rajapakse who is now helll bent in fixing Sarath Fonseka whils the hundreds of the criminals and even his henchmen are free to roam the streets with a threatening menace.
        What law do we have except the Balu Law of this cursed regime.

      • I salute that honest and brave senior policeman..He said tghe truth and we don’t need lickers and suckers to say what the govt wants to hear.
        The truth and the devil its due must also be a priority and I feel it was well said…Not only about SF, but also importantly about each and every serviceman and civilian that would have given his/her life or got injured during the LTTE battle…All are heroes with or without stars and general..No need to be Pandang Kahrayas.

        • xjs

          That does not mean he should insult the other Maj.Gen.. we all know they were there in the thick of things and lead from the front… They showed that they are a different class and breed compared to the Snr.police officer…

  2. What about detaining Mahinda, Gota, Basil etc also on this case instead of trying to turn this case into an eye wash.
    What about all the unsolved murders that the govt has conveniently put aside whilst our country continues into a pathetic and sorry state .
    Sri Lanka is being destroyed by a the Rajapakse Cancer and all these are to deviate from the actual issues of concern..Our well being and most importatntly our Democracy.
    Mahinda Rajapakse..what have you to say if you are responsible as our supposedly elected president…Not the president only for all the corrupt and rogue ways…

    • Saman Hewawasam

      Well said!!!!!!

      Why would you want to detain Mahinda, Gota, Basil ?? For wiping out terrorism from my country?

        Crimes against humanity.

        • xjs

          which crime..I suppose the crime you mentioned was wiping out terrorism and bringing peace to our nation after 30 years!!!!!

      • Manjula

        Then why are they worried about the UN commitee

        • LK

          For the same reasons that the US Government is scared of a UN committee on Iraq War. (P:S :- But the only difference is there will be never a UN committee on the USA no matter how bad the civilian casualties are. )

    • Sri Lankan

      Are you a terrorist who want to start Tamil Elaam All over again or are you getting NGO funds from Tamil Diaspora to start Ellaam again

    • mohandev

      Why dont you commit suicide………..thats what punks like you should do for being deaf, blind & dumb for all the atrocities taught & mastered by UNP dictators from 77 – 94????

    • Chandra

      To Sam Silva,
      Please try to come into terms with your lost dreams. There is no need to boil your own blood at the expense of the fallen and corrupted General. The democracy was always under threat no matter who was in power in different times. Also the corruption was always rampent no matter who was in power in different times. As voters we are also responsible for this situation because we blindfold ourselves with BLUE,GREEND & RED bands and repeat like parrots what our political leaders say time to time. For UNP, once SF was not even to fit to run the Salvation Army and now they suddenly found him to be the saviour of the nation. For SLFP, then SF was the best Army Commander the army ever had but now all of a sudden they have found out he is the most corrupted guy Army has ever produced. Among this mud slinging campaign, SF tries to portray himself as a saint and taking all of us for ride.I fully agree that SF was a able Army Commander but when it comes to the matter of yearning for a political power, he is one of the worst guys our society has ever produced during a VEY SHORT PERIOD OF TIME. He tries to thrive in this politcally stinking murky water like a worm.
      And as voters, do we have to follow the ever changing whims and fancies of of our political leaders and dance accoding to thier tunes?? Our own political stupidity and ignorence paved the way for the current situation as we still blindfold ourselves with our inherited political beliefs.It not the political leaders who need eye washes but us.

      • To Chandra
        very good point you have focussed, i agree with you,
        but how we will free ourself from these corrupt politicians, who is going to run a corrupt free country
        who will develop our country? your criticizing without
        solution.

        My bet is SF who is an independent Army commander with 40 yrs experience Corrupt free but
        the Govt have cooked up some theory to keep him
        off politics because he is a danger to all political leaders.

    Dear Readers,

    In a true democrtic country, It’s the commander of chief is respnsible these activities. This Hulugalle guy is disgrace to the journalism. I have forgotten the name of the spoke person for Hitler , that person was more civilised then this goon

    • Sisira

      Miley Cyrus . AM i CORRECT?

      Punishments were given to those who spoke badly about Hitler

      They lost their jobs, even in highly qualified intellectual positions in universities and research establishments. Ordinary resisters of Nazism were also thrown into concentration camps. Majority were ostracized and encouraged to leave the country, which many took as an opportunity to go to ‘greener pastures’. Some of these people were the great thinkers of their age, and were a significant ‘brain drain’ for Germany, as events would prove later.(Courtesy GOOGLE)

      • sivalinga

        Fonseka needs to be in Jail for a long time; for revealing military secrets to the USA and for threatining (to prevent him from) to reveal military secrets to the world. that is treason in my books. that alone is enough to hang him: that is just me

        • sivalinga
          since when did you come to that foolish coclusion you are also a sucker of false media of the state, do you have proof or the
          state have proof, dont be ignorant of the Law.

        • mohandev

          So shefif must be wiping UNP backs after all the licks are done with his 3/4

        • Ilangko

          War crimes are military secrets? This accusation of treachery is a confirmation that the government committed war crimes.

      • Mahina tries to go beyond Hitler to prove himself as the most human rights abuser of this planet. Hitler is dead but Mahinda lives! Jews are lucky but not the Tamils, soon the Sinhalese too.

    7 Saldiers are detained for Murder, where did the order come? it must have come from the top? defernce secratary is on the top, so he sould be guilty as any one else involving in this case, according to the law, killer, who planed it, and whoe helped it, equaliy guilty

    • sivalinga

      well…. not according to Ranil. he said in parliament that SF gave the orders. he specifically said the government and the cabinet can’t control a certain sector of the military and that the military is running the country.

      read the hansard yourself. January 9 2009. page 27 (574 of hanzard)

    So…. in conclusion, the Evil Buddhism makes our Singheelam as Evil Doers.

    • Orpheus Perera

      Please leave Buddhism out of this.

      I am not a historian. Please someone more patriotic teach Dilshan some history between 1505 and the present day.
      There were groups of American and British women who were converting people along the costal lines to “modified” sectors of Christianity.
      Tsunami swept away majority of people like Dishan. According to stories only those who went(including some Catholics) to see the opening ceremony of the Big Statue in Kandavihara were saved. It happened on Boxing day. In 1955 there was non stop rain in Sri Lanka and on Christmas eve entire church was crushed by a massive movement of a rock in Kurunegala with the devotees,
      Buddhism is the most tolerant religion in the world(before Hinduism). No country has allowed , Hindu temples or Buddhist temples next to their sacred places. You cannot take a picture of Lord Buddha or a Hindu god to the Middle East. But in Sri Lanka you can see mosques and Churches next to Buddhist sacred places. Middle Eastern wars are all because of religions. Ireland has blood-shed for the last 100 years because of two sectors of the Church. Before the end of human civilization there will be massive wars between the Muslims and the Catholics (and Christians). Buddhism will be lost before that because they will never fight. Islam was the religion of Muslim traders who came to Sri Lanka. Buddhists were converted to Catholics by the Portuguese by threatening the parents. If they didn’t become Catholics the infants were to be thrown to crocodiles in crocodile farms between Kelaniya and Awissawella. At least British used a more humane technique. ie to bribe the rich and give a better life to orphans and the poor, to change the religion. Buddhism allows people to decide whether to accept the religion or not after studying it. Buddha told the priest to “Do not accept because I say, come and see”. Emperor Dharmasoka(Who sent his son as the Buddhist Messenger to Sri Lanka), became a good man after listening to the sermon of a little Buddhist Monk.

  6. Edward

    Arrested only, long way to go, I am sorry for the men detained but they will be rewarded or already rewarded. I am positive they were not exposed by the by the Sunday Leader and had no personal motives, of course they may have been trained and ordered to carry out such missions. The men behind the scean must be arrested which will never be done such news are to shut the cretics.

  7. HERO

    Again the govt. trying to bring SF into this case…the govt is trying everything to keep SF in the jail…I don’t understand why they so scared f him…

    • sivalinga

      ummm… he politicised the military you moron. do you want 300,000 soldiers with guns, running around looting and killing on the orderes of ‘retired officeres’ involved in politics trying to topple governments.

      do you want a pakistan, a bangaledesh, somalia type military govt, instable, violent country.

      Also ” I will testify any where against war crimes committed by the army” Do we really want this stupid selfish man in the outside world making up lies to make money for himself.

      • Sivalinga,
        SF never said that he will testify against the army thats
        a lie propogated by the state, He accepted responsibilty
        of the ARMY, but not of defence secretary.

      • HERO

        Are u really a Sri Lankan Mr. Sivalinga? think twice before writing anything fooooooooool.

        So you are one who got your brain washed by the MR propoganda right? so you like to live in a hell under this regime?? what a man (?) are u? you are the people ruining this country.

    above Sf was/is there a guy who gave orders? Kuthuhalayak/

  10. Nayana

    Unfortunately, you don’t know who to believe anymore. You cannot trust the
    present regime, and neither can you trust the other side. Why did it take so long
    for these people to be arrested? For the longest time nothing was done to get to the bottom of this. There was no outrage shown from the Rajapakses, and Gota
    even disregarded this horrible murder when interviewed. So who is really behind this disgraceful killing?

  11. Gamini Dullewea

    The WHOLE WORLD knows this was SF’s work……………what still wait…..hang the clown down the hole…..!

    Why detaining poor soldiers while you know the real murderer? (Hariyata oluwatada wadune)

  14. Shaik

    The investigations of the murder of a much respected journalist should not be hijacked as a political football. At the tme of the murder there were witnesses who made statements that the two motorcyclists involved in the shooting came from and returned to the unit commanded by Sarath Fonseka. Sarath Fonseka may not have given the order but he has a lot to answer and should be subpoenaed at least.

  15. Sivakanthan

    Whenever Tamils accusing the SL army for rapes, extra judicial killings, disappearances intimidation and abuses over innocents and voiceless, nobody listened, instead boasted as the no.1 decent military in the world. By saying such coveted stories like putting lipstick on a pig, you, newspapers, covered all the truths. Today how dare you to say someone from your disciplined heroes as suspects of extra judicial killings of your kin. You newspapers know the truth but waiting until someone pee under your legs. You newspapers, always listen to the farts of politicians, not any genuine voiceless who are with you always. Whenever politicians change their farts flavor, you also change the way you enjoy. Do not divert your readers by saying ‘suspects’ are been found because suspects are suspecting the suspects.

    • Fence

      Oh I see…. so your LTTE was a very clean outfit huh? Why not start counting the horrendous crimes they have done against innocent people?

      • Saro

        Whoever committed crimes must be held accountable and punished. It all started with escalated with Sinhala Only Act though previous Citizenship Act (1949) and colonisation of North and East started the conflict. Between 1956 and 1983 communal riots were master minded by the successive governments, Opposition Parties and Buddhist monks to suppress pecaeful and democratic protests staged by the minorities.
        LTTE were punished and finished off and now Soldiers are not above the law, they must also be inveswtigated to see if the WAR crimes and rights abuses were committed on their own or on the instructions of their political MasteRs ?

        • Bonapart

          Good idea . First we should start by investigating into the war crimes done by murderer pirabaharan and his supporters. How he killed Rajiv Gandhi and how he took innocent tamil civilians as a human shield to protect himself. How he sent teenagers of his own race as cannon fodder and every thing. As he is out of existance we will take one of these hardcore LTTE diaspora supporters like Saro to face the charges !

        • Bonapart

          What is wrong with colonisation of North and East ? All the tamils can buy lands and build houses in anywhere in the island. But when sinhalese do that in North and east that is a crime !

  16. Human conscience

    The Hon. General Sarath Fonseka hero of Sri Lanka, languishing in a Cell with no aeration, daylight, subjected to a humiliation by his opponent and Election thief Kakussi King of Lanka. HIckeneliya I.

    This is a shameful episode for Sri Lanka trying to emulate Myanmar “THROUGH THE IMPRISONMENT OF “AUNG SAN SUU KYI” Mahinda’s friend and mentor, including the Chinese master of evil. Had drawn up this plan and implemented it. The government did acknowledge the construction of internment camps, these camps were gulags for all dissidents.

    To all Gentleman and soldiers at arms in Lanka, calculate how much you guys have earned, how much are your savings, how much remains for your kids education if you wish to send them abroad. Today you serve the evil politicians use you as their PAWNS and tomorrow when you are of no use you shall become the gutter rats. Either you take power and be rich similar to the politicians or be the PAWNS. With a emolument of 60000 Rupees as a general, you guys are being used. A politician has Millions say billions, do not be drawn into the game of pawns. You gentleman will one day be simple retired civilans and shall be the laughing stock of the village and your friends. BEWARE OF THE EVIL OF THE POLITICIANS.

    TODAY SARATH, YOU TOMORROW.

  17. N K Ratnam

    This is yet another election gimmick. There are a lot of desserters who returned due to threat of being cout marshalled. They do not want to be in the army and therefore misbehave. So here is a way to kill two birds with one stone.

    1. Frame a case against them on false charges and “show” to the voters that the government is doing something.

    2. When (If) the case comes to courts it will apart and by this time the real culprits would have left the country without a trail and live happily ever after in a foreign country.

    Investigations and justice, Sri Lankan style!

  18. Punchinilame

    The timing of the “arrest” and weaning out the Numbers are all a game to
    pin SF down in the near future. This is very obvious. The culprits are MR
    Bros. without a doubt – but SF who knew all this is being trapped – while
    being caged! The world will not know the final story – like a Sathasivam
    Murder case for sure.

    How strange to find all the killers coming from the SF camp only after the election fiasco ?

    How come the CID and the highest in this ‘noble’ land didn’t know where these murderers came from all this time ?

    So do we now THANK, SF for making all this possible after all ?!! B’cos if there was no coup (or is it soup?) no other crime would have been busted !

    Please SF, will you get the govt to crack the case of the missing journalists whose loving families are waiting for their safe return ?

    By the way what about settling the robbed money of Ceylinco GK ? The rogues are as free as KP these days.

    WHY OH WHY THIS DOUBLE STANDARDS NOBLE SRI LANKA WHERE THE CUT OUTS OF SANDOS CAN BE SEEN FROM HEAVEN BUT THE DELIVERY IS SO POOR IN HUMAN RIGHTS ????

    This is a murder case and I don’t think that it is a good thing to conclude who has done this. This is a matter for the court to decide. We were patient all these days and why not we wait little longer to find out the actual culprit?

    • KingKong..what court to decide…Do yu still have 100 percent faith and trust in Sri Lanka’s judicial system..Do yu belive that these arrests are the best and not fixed to prove a different point with hidden agendas…How come all the other many murders and crimes are not even brought up after a few days..
      Only the GORILLA will try to be the judge…so don’t hold your breath waiting ..

  24. ..he..he..he yestredays hereos to days zeros…jayawewa….soon modayas will dance again for free liquor….how many from this clique will visit the THE HAGUE…

    IT HAS BEEN MORE THAN A YEAR SINCE THIS GENTLEMAN WAS MURDERED & ONLY NOW SOME SOLDIERS HAVE BEEN ARRESTED. ONE CANNOT FOOL ALL THE PEOPLE ALL THE TIME. THE MASTERMINDS BEHIND THIS CRIME WILL NEVER BE EXPOSED DUE TO THE POLITICAL POWER THAT THEY WIELD. THE SAD THING IS THEY HAVE THE NERVE TO CALL THEMSELVES BUDDHISTS. BUDDHISTS THEY ARE NOT BUT A BUNCH OF VILLAGE GODAYA THUGS. WHAT DIFFERENCE IS THERE BETWEEN THEM & THE TIGERS ?–NOTHING, BOTH ARE TERRORISTS. MAY THEY BE CURSED FOR ALL THE MISERY THEY CONTINUE TO CAUSE TO ALL PEOPLE OF SL.

    Looks like Fonseka had a lot to hide. Perhaps thats the reason he took to Politics after his fallout with Mahinda and Gota, To be in power to cover up all his “sins”. To me there is no other sane reason for him to be so hell bent in getting political power, I dont buy that he wants to be the saviour of the Nation even though given that he has a very big ego problem. By the way has the Leader followed the trail of the 550 odd dollars, If they are numbered then they had to come originaly from a bank, this will open a whole new can of worms, once they have names and dates.

    Much talk about KP s moneies abroad, To freeze his accounts or accounts under his various aliases, First he has to be tried in Sri Lanka and a court has to issue an order that his accounts have to be frozen, this will be presented to the Swiss Govt thru a lawyer in Switzerland. The Swiss Justice Ministry then according to its merits will order the banks concerned to freeze all accounts. I am surprised that the permanent rep in Geneva has not informed the Sri Lankan Govt about the process, or for that matter former employees of the Govt n Geneva now working for the Govt. Is that nobody can be just bothered about all this.

    All peace loving citizens in this Countrty are aware how some Media Journalist
    and Politicans behaved during the Military Operations to wipe out the ruthless
    LTTE. They failed misserably and now they are licking the Ass of SF to miss-
    leed SF they are his sympathizers.People in this Country know that they are
    all shedding crocodile tears over SF and LW’s issues which is not worthwhile.
    These trouble shooters will be severily dealth with by our Masses on April 8th
    by driving a million inches nail into their coffins.

    Release the innocent 7 soldiers. The real killer Fonseka is in custody now.

    This is what Gotabaya Rajapakse said about Sarath Fonseka, not too long ago, “these achievements would never have been won without the experience , the knowledge, the bravery and heroism of Lieutenant General Sarath fonseka. I am proud of the army commander for doing such a tough job” -Thanks to the pervasive Sri Lankan media.

    Until Sarath Fonseka said he would not betray his religious conscience in revealing who asked the Tamils to come out with white flags and who ordered to kill the surrendered.

    Gotabaya Rajapakse, a US Green Card holder and former 7/11 manager, is now making a supreme judgement of 5-year sentence to Sarath Fonseka.

    Good Heavens.
    Thanks for times on line.

    • YES Feroz..Very true..These Rajapakses are like musicians..They change the tune to suit their times and their fancies.
      By the way, these are the leaders of our Democracy where thay are directly responsible for our well being and our security.
      Are we getting what is due to us as citizens of this country???
      I think not!!
