The joke that is Wijedasa and the joker that is Wijedasa


Quite apart from his faux pas (I don’t believe it), or deliberate challenge (I believe it) to the authority of the President to denounce in public his threat to take back Hambantota Port if ever he was in charge,  (as if it ever left Sri Lankan sovereignty) for the people of Sri Lanka, putting collective Cabinet Responsibility into the trash heap, I believe he has been a double agent right through his term in office, and for that sin alone he should be guillotined.

Simply put he is a traitor to his Government and has been so since its inauguration and the fact that both the President and the Prime Minister tolerated his prevarication and procrastination for so long is simply astounding, as he has NOT achieved anything in his tenure.

His endearing engagement with the President, evidenced by to bringing his son into the Ministry of Defence as a Media Secretary was part of this game to report back, all manner of corruption taking place, inform his masters like Gota of any shenanigan that can be used in the future against the very same donkeys in the Yahapalana Government, shows that his paws have reached all corners. Giving him the Buddhasasana Ministry also was a calculated gamble that spectacularly failed.

Is it due to his knowledge of many secrets usually jealously guarded by lawyers with more merit who treasure the Attorney Client Privilege, and which those very same clients now realize his blatent disregard of,  to project his personage, that he has not already been sacked?

The Government (the President and PM) is placing too much weight on his influence on imbecilic leaders of the Clergy who shout loudest and the Media print this shout, but who have NO weight in reality with the Clergy who matter most. He is all loud, like a Goose once it is chased for dear life, but which no one in the end will care about, once snuffed out.

The INDECISION of the PM and the President is PAINFUL to the public to watch, when this man is running rings round the Government and even the UNP MP’s who have been screaming for blood don’t seem to be able to have the power to effect this change and move on.

In the interests of Good Governance and to show the people, the ability of this administration to Govern effectively, this is simply an appeal to the President to fire this man without having to give any reason, and NOT worry about the beans he has threatened to spill, as his ouster is more important than any harm his UNTRUSTWORTHY mouth can spew. It will only be with a vengeance and blood lust and so will be without merit. (no pun intended in the Buddhist context)


What is important is that the people of this Country are governed by people who have the Public's best interests at heart, and if that is the ultimate criteria, Mr President you can do it without being concerned about the WHAT Ifs!

Another case of a US Navy SHIP MISHAP! Don’t play the bogus games again


As if the diabolical accident itself was bad enough, where 10 sailors are reported to be missing, despite dawn helicopters searching in vain, why keep the same lie I reported on when the Fitzgerald accident occurred a few months ago.

It is sad that this ship is named after Cancer striken Senator John McCain’s father and grandfather, both Admirals in the US Navy, and having to keep all the relatives in suspense is even worse. I gather ship has docked in Singapore and common sense would dictate that, immediately the automatic doors that shut be checked for the dead sailors. I said last time that the sailors had NOT falled overboard and they were inside the ship when they were sacrificed for the safety of the ship, from being sunk along with the others.

Why cant we call a spade a spade and say the Navy had to sacrifice 10 lives of those possibly in the compartments next to the accident that had to be closed off and sealed to prevent the ship going down. So effectively they were drowned by the Navy and not by the accident itself, in order to save the ship and possibly the other 300+ hands on board.

It is this sort of misinformation that again calls into question the PR of the US Govt in not wanting to be truthful and allow the information ONLY to gradually seep out. Just think about it the families on Shore are being informed as we speek of the tragedy and who is missing. I hope so at least. Those missing are of course presumed dead and this must be said now rather than bull shitting on hope that they may be found alive.

This ship was of the Pacific Fleet based in Yokohama and the ship was on its way to Singapore when the accident happened. It is simply unacceptable that a sophisticated warship of this caliber can be so easily caught in an accident, due to the various measures taken in peacetime to prevent just these sorts of accidents from happening.

Heads will roll in time once the investigations are made and the reports given to the top brass of culpability. It is however simply wrong to treat the sailors who died as fodder but as heroes who gave their lives so that others may live and be honored so. No one will want to join the US Navy if they cant be trusted to do the basic human thing on behalf of this unfortunate sailors, and keeping everyone in suspense hoping they will turn up is the wrong strategy to publicize.


Lets hope that if they did not learn from the Fitzgerald they will learn from the John S McCain that lives matter no matter what rank one is in.

Ravi Karunanayake – How many lives do you think you have?


We all know that finally the “Chickens will come home to roost” and now they have caught up on a lifetime of fraud beginning with how you snatched Roton Vander from the unsuspecting owner right from under his feet! I knew Shelton and how he suffered as a result!

Fast forward 25 years and now you are doing the same thing to the PM, using your knowledge to spill the beans, and taint his Mr Clean image to the chagrin of his millions of followers! Why?

Why did you go and meet Mahinda Rajapaksa, and offer to come over to his side, and use all your inside information to betray Ranil Wickremasinghe, as a sure way to get him sacked as the PM? Ironically MR had more sense of gratitude than you, as he had saved RW’s skin allowing him to remain as the Leader of the Opposition when the whole Maharajah Organization was shitting on him to go, and with that sense of gratitude, did not wish to entertain a TURNCOAT like you, who was clearly a “KUNU GODA” that even he would not touch even if he was paid to do so. He considers you such a liability in his camp, that you are now left to the VULTURES to eat you alive.

So what do you do, go back to the UNP and tell Kabir you will spill the beans if you are cast out of the fold! Kabir who does not have a backbone, is not strong enough to call your bluff, and instead is trying to buy time by defending you at the MOMENT, hoping something or someone will soon find a way out of this predicament on what to do to you.

Have you realized what a liability you have become to the Human Race, when you suddenly find yourself devoid of friends, and the only temporary ones are those you can buy, because they need the money and you know it?

Don’t put this UNF govt. through this impeachment saga, please! You know you cannot win as most of the MPs in Govt. have had it, as you are seen as the devil’s advocate, and their futures have been affected due to your unabashed greed, that extends to your colleagues you are about to OUT too, as part of your avowed intention to take the baby with the bath water.


The safest course of action for the long term, for the stability not just of the Govt. but the whole Country and its need to develop, is for you to gracefully offer your resignation to the President, and as a face saving gesture to the few believers you have left, say that you do so until your name is completely cleared of any wrongdoing. How easy is that? You know you cannot work anymore in any capacity anywhere, but you have enough for a few generations, so it is OK!

Please see my previous blog post which is the safest exit strategy for the PM to deal with the currently UNPREDICTABLE Ravi, who faces the Bond Commission today, and is trying to decide which lie is more believable (to him) as nothing will be accepted by them, not even the truth!

Prime Minister, please listen to your only option of survival !

PRIDE ARROGANCE AND LUST FOR POWER - PUT IT ASIDE FOR NOW

You did not listen to me then, when in this blog on January 12th 2015 I told you not to appoint Mahendran in any financial position due to the son in law being the largest Bond Trader, and see what happened to you! You lost the majority you would have had to govern on your own, without having to bring in the rogues to join you.

Now your rogues who you have so vociferously protected, who have threatened to spill the dirt on you personally, don’t care about loyalty while you defended them, so it is better to save your soul and the ignominy of being outed finally as a complete fool and conniver with the rogues to rob the Country.

Ravi is indefensible, and everyone wants him out of ANY POWER, and now that Mahinda will NOT accept him into their fold as he is actually considered a political liability in their bid to regain power, it is best for you to take a bold decision completely snookering the players who are out to destroy you.

So what do you do? You simply make a statement in a Press Conference, that you have been let down, and your trust in people has been shaken, and you take FULL RESPONSIBILITY for the actions of your henchmen and so you resign as the PM forthwith, temporarily handing the helm of Govt. to Mangala, who is both acceptable to UNP, MS and CBK and a sworn enemy of  the MR lot.

It is the STATESMEN LIKE thing to do, as people will appreciate your humility, (for once you have to put aside your arrogance and lust for power aside and play the wounded leader, where the soldiers have betrayed their trust.)

You do not have to blame Ravi at all, but the upshot of this is that there will be a Public outcry to have Ravi Lynched, and so he will have NO OPTION BUT TO RESIGN and you will not have to face the ignominy of sacking him and he taking you down with him, and ditto with Arjun Aloysius who is using his trump card of the dirt on you to hold on to his position!

In this way, you will bow out gracefully, and will have a chance at the Presidency in 2020, whereas if you hang on, your scalp will be on MS table before long as everyone would betray you to save their skin, making you the scapegoat.


Please take my advice for once if you value your independence and sanity.

Proof that the Institute of Chartered Accounts in Sri Lanka are rogues even today!

JUST LOOK AT THIS.

The Financial Times of Friday, 21st of July published an article showing the President of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Sri Lanka, Lasantha Wickremasinghe handing out the First Copy of " A Supplement to A Preparer's Guide to Integrated Corporate Reporting" by CA Sri Lanka, IRCSL presented to IIRC CEO.

See link for the exact detail please:

http://www.ft.lk/article/630142/First-copy-of--A-Supplement-to-A-Preparer-s-Guide-to-Integrated-Corporate-Reporting--by-CA-Sri-Lanka--IRCSL-presented-to-IIRC-CEO

It clearly states that the(Intergrated Reporting Council of Sri Lanka)  IRCSL Chairman is prominent Chartered Accountant Asite Talwatte.

Now how can Mr Talwatte be the IRCSL Chairman and ALSO be a director of DIMO which won the best Integrated Reporting Award at the CMA Award Ceremony on Monday, July 17th 2017.

Recusing himself from the judging panel is simply not enough as the whole project is NOT transparent. So it is simply a sharing of the spoils amongst interested parties, without ANY regard to basic ethics.

Have they NOT heard of RELATED PARTY TRANSACTIONS that need to be disclosed. Where is it anywhere in the DIMO accounts of Mr Talwatte's connection to the IRCSL?

This makes both DIMO's winning of the award invalid in ETHICS but also the ICASL being complicit in NOT pointing this out to the broader public.

We cannot expect our Auditors who we rely on for fairness to break every rule of fair play by themselves, and expect us to trust their audit certificate. Which Planet do these accountants live in?

This is a serious lapse of judgement by the profession and I would like the whole Council of the ICASL to resign and reconstitute themselves with other people if they are to regain this lost credibility.

I need to go into the absurdity and duplicity of the DIMO company accounts NOT highlighting one of the most material transactions in the body of the Audit Report as reported in the earlier BLOG entry. See below for link to that.

http://pattapalboru.blogspot.com/2017/07/the-disgrace-that-is-dimo-using.html

So when Sri Lankan accounting body encourages being misleading, who can we rely on?

This is the sad state of our Country yest again painfully obvious for all to see, but all in the know are completely BLIND to this clear as daylight fact.

Cocaine Haul - Something fishy going on - read between the lines

It is simply absurd that you can find cocaine in bags as soon as you open a container, as reported in the media. Either the media is misreporting it or the people are lying! What is it?

No way will anyone send cocaine in PLAIN VIEW for every one opening the container to see.

http://www.dailynews.lk/2017/07/21/local/122758/cocain-haul-seven-arrested

Further there are TWO completely contradictory stories as one says the police got a tip off and that is how it was found and then SATHOSA says its employees or manpower workers are the ones that reported this upon opening of the container.

Here again it is simply obvious that one party is lying, and surely it cannot be the police making these false statements!

What is going on, and those arrested are the driver and some of the workers. Surely are you implying that they had anything to do with a sealed container, as reported, or was it NOT sealed at the time of opening in front of sufficient witnesses so that corroborative evidence can be obtained.

Something really SMELLS here. Who are the culprits?

I have another story that says that since last year imports of sugar from Brazil has been stopped. If so when did this consignment come? Has it been sitting somewhere in a container yard for a year?

Why is there NO investigation on this find? Who is trying to kabosh any investigation?

More questions than answers.

I am sad that there is strict enforcement of tobacco and betal leaf chewing mix while there is a free for all of hard drugs on sale in Sri Lanka. That is simply NOT tenable.

Why like Dengue does not the Govt. use their might to put a complete stop to this drug trade that is aimed at our young people turning them into addicts to ruin our society?

Who is behind this coup against our society? Are our leaders and politicians at the heart of this tragedy that is worse than any previous tragedy that has befallen this beautiful Country.

Why are the people silent? Why is civil society silent to the most fearsome Tsunami that this Country has ever faced?

Questions with NO ANSWERS - with NO ONE TO BLAME, or is there?

Emmerson – The President – Wijedasa Rajapaksha WHO STRANGLED WHOM?


As if the soap opera continues, our leaders live a life of shooting themselves in the foot. They just don’t seem to understand news and if they are playing to the gallery, meaning their constituents for support even that appears to have failed.

I am referring to the damning report by the UNs Special Rapporteur on Human Rights and Counter Terrorism about the state of affairs STILL continuing in Sri Lanka and the Justice Minister’s outburst about the incompetence of the personage who signed off on the report.

First, will the Justice Minister ever be appointed to such a position in a world body? Despite a double dubious doctorate I somehow doubt it.

Secondly, by his outburst, did he further denigrate Sri Lanka in the eyes of the world. He certainly did, and for that he is a traitor to the Country.


The link above from Groundviews relating to this incident is shown above, though I am not at all a fan of this blog, I am trying to be objective in deciphering our Justice Minister and Presidents public outbursts on the matter.  

Thirdly, When the President PUBLICLY questioned his rights to talk to detainees, did he realize that permission was sought and granted so to do? He feigned ignorance or worse believed it was NOT in his purview and so said he had NO right to question detainees. Further embarrassing himself and his office of the Presidency, that then questions the integrity of our leaders.

All this leads to self-inflicted trouble by our own leaders against the Country, something which is opposite of what we expect our elected leaders to do.

So how can Sri Lanka again extricate itself from the mistakes of their leaders, when we are trying ever so hard to make the world believe in our good intentions in keeping with our UN obligations. If we were not part of the UN or signatories then it would be OK to do anything and NO one has any right to castigate our leaders on lapses or failings at all.

All this is very embarrassing and worse when they portray the UN representative as being out of bounds, to hide their incompetence at not being mindful of their PR in accommodating him so that he reports in conciliatory terms. We got the damning report we did because of the our Justice Minister, and NOT inspite of him. So it is directly as a result of his inability to grasp the significance of the problem and PR sweet talk, that we got a bad report.

When jokers like this who resort to educational qualifications to hide their personal inadequacies and then are unable to diplomatically sweet talk foreign diplomats so they cow down and provide a watered down version for publication, we get this result.

The issue we cannot fault Emmerson’s report because we know that even citizens who are arrested today, no matter what race or religion are routinely STILL tortured to exact or extract confessions, as the law enforcement officers believe STILL that is the ONLY way to get a confession to the crime. They don’t believe that people confess to crimes they do not do, under this method, as it is the lying or covering up that we routinely do when questioned first, and NO ONE really tells the truth unless he or she is threatened.

I am not justifying torture, but merely reporting as it is. We have to gradually determine how sophisticated we get from using lie detectors etc. to use a more humane means of extracting the truth from suspects to crime.

We have a lying culture that has come from the Top that is the Leadership of the Country. This has empowered every criminal to take the attitude, that if the leader of the Country is a liar, then there is nothing wrong for him to lie too, as that is simply part of the way things are done.

In a round a bout type of way, what I am saying is that it is time for our leaders to tell the truth, then when our criminals lie, even a lie detector will detect lying so much easier, and this issue of having to torture will gradually decline and hopefully disappear one day. This is NOT going to change overnight, whatever A UN person says.

Where the mind boggles is that a lawyer of Wijedasa’s disrepute does not know these facts as he has dealt with enough cases where his clients have lied or his clients have been lied to and he has engaged in means to disprove their statements as fiction.


An appeal therefore to the leaders of Sri Lanka to bat for Sri Lanka first, and put themselves firmly second rather than their political survival first at the expense of Sri Lanka. This way we will not allow ourselves to fall into this embarrassing situation where the Minister of Justice, publicly questioned the competence of a UN official which puts the whole UN system  into disrepute and worse ricochets back on him as no one will then believe what he says, except the small number of his fans and supporters who should not be the people he is addressing
