MR To Be Issued Notice

By Nirmala Kannangara

The Commission to Investigate Allegation of Bribery or Corruption is to issue notice on former President Mahinda Rajapaksa to appear before the commission despite recent protests in Parliament and outside. Director General of the Commission, Dilrukshi Dias Wickramasinghe said that the former President and former Health Minister Tissa Attanayake’s impending interrogation has not been withheld, but will be carried out shortly.

Wickramasinghe said that the delay in getting the statements from the former President and MP Attanayake was not due to certain opposition parliamentarians’ agitation in the parliament but due to a number of government holidays in the month of May.

Referring to the allegations levelled against her by the Opposition that she has no mandate to ask the former President to come to the Bribery Commission for a statement, Wickramasinghe stated that each and every citizen of this country irrespective of their status or positions is equal before the law of the land.

“If the parliamentarians think that the law of this land cannot be imposed on rich and powerful but only against poor and frail then it is up to the legislative council that should pass that law. Then I can investigate the complaints made only against the poor and frail not the rich and powerful,” Wickramasinghe said.

According to Wickramasinghe in the event the Commission receive complaints, it will follow the normal procedure to find out whether there is concrete evidence to carry out further investigations or not which is decided by the three Commissioners including the Commission Chairman but not the Director General. Wickramasinghe further said that the Speaker of the parliament has no authority to summon a public servant to Parliament to be questioned.

The Speaker had summoned Wickramasinghe after notice was issued on the former President earlier but she was out of the country at the time, so the Chairman of the Commission was summoned instead.

    Sri Lanka Parliment is a circus ground with uneducated thugs, psychos, fools, bafoons. Speaker or the Parliment does not have authority to summon Judges, Public Servents to Circus.

    • A Wise Donkey

      Well said, you are 100% right. Shame for a country with the highest literacy rate in Asia.

    • Jayalath

      Parliament is a joke where is the place make decisions to fool like you ,so I do not wonder of your comment . But you will be failed if you not know about this . Take care .

  2. S B Lokuge

    These Jarapalanaya crooked donkeys have made so many stupid unproven allegations against MR and if he is continued to be harassed by this illegal government, people will think enough is enough and rise up against them.

    • Lion

      Lokka stupid Unproven allegation, Ha Ha where were you all these years?Your lokka is biggest rouge in this country.

      • Jayalath

        Haha, fool . Did you born yeasterday .people live on the sword die on the sword . It doesn’t matter we will fight .

    • Why opposition members are trying to prevent MR being investigated on a Complaint to Bribery? This is a very bad precedence.Law should be alike to all in this land.They are trying to frighten the Govt. and protect MR. “Karana kalata paw.meeriya mee se;………, Vindina kalata duk dediwei……….!!! If M R is a law abiding citizen, should set an example without instigating his henchaiyas to make protests in the House to prevent him being summoned to BC. In the meantime Govt should consider taking some stern action with regard to the fact summoning B/C to the House as to under what law they did that without further delay.We are watching this situation.

    • Peter Perera

      Well Mr.S.B. Lokuge I undoubtedly will not question your educational status as it goes to prove that the Majority of Sri Lankans elected Mr. Maithripala Sirisena and I wonder how you come by the theory that this GOVERNMENT IS ILLEGAL…… Only goes to prove your mental capacity.

      • Anton

        Thank you very much for your comment SIR. and as we are srilankans we love our country.We should never allow these bad people to take power again .ENOUGH IS ENOUGH Thanks mr. Peter again.

        • Jayalath

          Oho , who are the bad people ? Aren’t the people who snatch power by a conspiracy the bad guys . Please do not speak nonsense . Sirisena is the biggest crook in history who has to pay the price soon .

      • Poor Peter

        Dear Peter… Mr Lokuge was talking about the ‘Government’ not the president (who was elected by a majority).
        Surely then by your logic the majority government should have their party as a majority in Cabinet and their PM, instead we now have a PM that no one voted for.

    • Anton

      Shut up fool

    • polished

      Fool, MR is called Ali Baba not for nothing, and I suppose he had nothing to do with Shirani and Sarath Too

  3. Mahen Ranasinghe

    Well said Dilrukshi. Teach these uneducated buffaloes in the Parliament what the law is. They only knew Mahinda Rajapaksa law. Keep up the good work.

  4. Sinhaya

    Sri Lanka, undoubtedly falls in to the category of dirtiest politics in the world. All politicians are responsible for this pathetic situation. The cycle of revenge goes on unabated. When politicians waste their time on taking revenge and those huge sums of money spent on that, how can the country be developed?

    • Jayalath

      Please comprehend about Jayalalitha in India . If you have a name like LION ,please speak like lion not as an ass

  5. Mahinda Rajapaksa

    This woman must keep quiet and carry out the task ahead without making any stage shows. She must keep opinions to herself and let the commissioners do the job. It is sufficient to say her appointment was based on political patronage. If MR or his wife is found guilty, they must be brought before a court of justice. Visiting Buddhist temples everyday will not save this worst corrupt politician ever seen in the Sri Lankan history.

    • L. Perera

      Yes. Very true. Be professional and continue work. Law for all not only for poor and frail.

    • Anton

      Well said mahinda rajapaksa

    • Poor Lankan

      I admire you Mihinda Rajapakse for your comments.The people should unite and get the former President to face all corruption charges and banish him from this country to Seychelles where he can live like a King from all the money laundering he did together with his friend the High Commissioner!!!!

    Oh yea? Every citizen of SL is equal despite of their position does it include to M.R. the former president who eliminated the 28 years of terror from the island and developed the ill-fated infrastructure? forgotten the beautification projects mainly in Colombo? not to mention many more…….No doubt USA is behind these tactics, present administration is doing and following their advice to keep USA boots in our sovereign country? Ranil,My3,Ravi and the gang is calling a blood bath in SL very soon it will be the situation similar to Syria, Iraq or any country which USA has created this blood bath. Whole world including USA knows MR is the most efficient leader in SL and he is the most popular leader at present he’s people’s choice but not the jealous UNP, SF, JVP or some Tamil, Muslim & USA choice there for USA knows the best option is to block MR and his family members come back? USA always wants to dominate the entire world simply to protect them by policing other countries. SL if you cant (don’t know) how to protect your own leader who gave you the freedom and peace, sadly don’t expect America to baby sit you. Some Sinhalese are dammed silly and ungrateful bunch of idiots don’t bite the hand that feed you.

    Can you please summon that “Dried Pumpkin” for questioning ??

    • Yes, not only the dried Pumpkin, also the ex Minister of Education who was trying to explain the meaning of the foul language used by Mr.V N at 360 Programme in an attempt to wash VN who used that obscene word at Hon PM in anger. He had come prepared to explain the meaning of that word like a Pundit. In that case, one has to ask whether VN had used a decent word in anger and in furious mood at PM……Instead of expelling VN from the House like JR Govt did, the Speaker was soft peddling the situation saying that there were school children watching from the Gallery. Where is Discipline???

  8. Lion

    Very great, lady up hold the democracy of this country.You have shown the speaker who allowed rouges to desecrate the dignity of the parliament where he stands.See that the law is equally applied to every irrespective of their status.People of this country stand by you.

  9. Srilankan Jobseeker

    Well done madam my salutations…

  10. daggy

    Come what may, the masses are getting tired of the Yahapalanaya circus.
    One can kill a person but not his popularity.
    For different reasons, unfortunately, Ex- President appears to have the support of the people and from a fair cross section of parlimentarians.

    Director general needs to stop the gibberish and make the walk. unfortunately, she too is behaving like a fish out of the water with this new found media exposure.

    NOBODY IS GUILTY UNTILL PROVEN IN A COURT OF LAW.
    Stop the talk and make the walk. Sri Lankan masses are political animals. Nobody can hoodwink them as they have made their own decisions.

    100 days promise is thrash and now turned out to be a false promise. Sira is running round in circles unable to control his animals in Parliament. His puppet Masters CBK & Team have no idea what to feed SIRA.
    At this rate, best is PUNAKKU.
    You can not deceive the Sri Lanka masses when it comes to politics as they are capable of advising John Kerry how to run America.

  11. Yaha Paluwa

    Ranil is digging his own grave being disrespectful to MR…even though MR lost the election Sri Lankan people still respect MR for his massive contributions to the nations. He is getting sympathy form people with these pointless corruption allegations against his family. This government is giving no other choice for Sri Lankan peoples but bring MR back into power to protect him from these discrimination.

  12. lankaeu

  15. punchinilame

    Precedence has been set by G O T A to prevent arrest – FOR A LIMITED TIME
    only. MR & wife can take this course – but what is the consolation? Face it
    and be done with it as a “known devil”.. Cheating and misguiding others does
    not pay.

    After the former CJ was “examined and found guilty of fraud” by a group of MPs called a “select committee”, which usurped the powers of the Supreme Court, the speaker must be even now under the impression that public servants can be dragged before parliament !!!
    This guy, a former policeman, should be replaced.

  18. Anton

    Goes around comes around you thief .go to hell

  19. Freddy

    Yes power and egos seems the norm. Country gone to the dogs. Everyone is happy living on fresh air and sunlight. The only persistent Tamils knows what they want a separate state. The others are all sleeping, who care attitude has brought the country to standstill. Wake up Zombies and Pumkins.

  20. it is crazy to see this type of things. once you loose step down, get to aside’ and let the winners to go head with there work to tasks. this guy is still wants be like past to middle east leaders who lost their positions and life to. being a Buddhist ,don’t be greedy for power. there are many people who can handle and lead the country to a better future, please stay aside and do some good things for your next birth if you think. what is that gold thing in middle of your palm, is it a magic thing to masmarice people, this things want work every time, when your bad time and the good time of the entire countries population. please let the present government to do there best to develop the country. may bless the triple gem.

  21. Jayalath

    It can be another shameful exercise . As it shown over wife of weerawansa . Mrs. Weerawansa’s passport case became the biggest problem of Sirisena,s regime once before and who is next ? Is it next Mrs .Rajapaksa ? Ok people want justice equally to every one ,if anyone done wrong in the past who should be brought into justice regardless who they are ,but just doing things to insult some one or earn advantage from it is shameful . This is what this regime doing today . What is their plan is to throw mud slinging much as possible over to former president and his family and gain extre benifit on next election ,but it may turn other way around as well . Which already is happening .

  22. MOHAN

    RAJA PAL HORA ROBED THIS COUNTRY FROM LEFT TO RIGHT AND SYPHONED MORE THAN 975 BILLIONS OUT OF THE COUNTRY NOW THESE PAKAYAS ARE TRYING TO DEFEND THIS DISGUSTING NATIONAL CROOK.THIS UNDERWORLD CRIMINAL CROOK JUST BEFORE THE ELECTION HE SOLD 17 TONS OF GOLD TO JAPANESE COMPANY FOR NEARLY 23995 MILLION DOLLARS.THESE PUFTHAS NOW TELLING HE IS INNOCENT AND ALL THESE ALLEGATIONS MUST BE WITHDRAWN .THESE SUCKERS MUST SHOT ALIVE WITH THIS NATIONAL CROOK AND HIS RAJA GANG.
