(Lanka-e-News -23.Nov.2016, 11.55PM) Wijedasa Rajapakse the double dealing opportunistic politico who while being the minister of justice under the good governance government became notorious on account of his wheeler dealer activities in collaboration even now with the corrupt brutal discarded Rajapakse regime hurled insults and criticisms against Lanka e news and its editor while taking refuge under the parliamentary privilege .
Shockingly even before Lanka news could furnish a reply , a large cross section of the people gave him the answer laden with pungent spice and flavor so much so that LeN decided that there is no necessity for LeN to give him a reply .
However our viewers have urged us to give a reply to this tie coat wearing turncoat wheeler dealer who is contaminating the entire government to which he belongs, and the judiciary which comes under his ministry . In compliance with their requests we furnish hereunder our reply …
We describe Wijedasa openly as a double dealing cutthroat not without reason: Wijedasa is a shameless faceless minister under the government of good governance who openly said , ‘as long as I am the minister I shall not permit Gotabaya to be arrested’ despite the fact Gotabaya is facing a number of grave criminal charges , and even after the very government of good governance to which he belongs had promised to arrest and punish every crook and criminal irrespective of their status or rank. Incidentally, Gotabaya is still not arrested.
It is a pity this wheeler dealer cum double dealer Minister Wijedasa who is possessed of all the lowliest qualities of the scum of the lowest strata of society could not understand his insults in public did not inflict damage only on Lanka e news and its editor.
This tie -coat turncoat Wijedasa described a national hero and a former army commander who was responsible for the war victory as a “Vel Vidhane’ (an officer in charge of fields) insulting the field marshal honor bestowed on the war hero by the president himself of the country . Wijedasa did not have even that little grey matter to understand he is speaking in disparagement of the very president too who appointed Wjedasa to the ministerial position , when Wijedasa was wildly casting indiscriminate aspersions.
We recognize Sarath Fonseka as a national hero not only because he is the army commander who won the war , but he was also the one who had the rare courage to fearlessly and valorously resist the corrupt barbaric Rajapakse brutes without yielding and entering into any illicit deals with them . For that he had to pay a high price - he was put behind bars owing to his integrity and rectitude by the Rajapakse brutes . At all events Fonseka did not compromise his self dignity or betray the crusading masses behind him in their struggle.
If only Fonseka has not opted to take that valorous path then , the nation would not have known by now the brutality and barbaric nature of the corrupt crooked Rajapakses. Even though he was a former army commander and could have demonstrated his ‘ military arrogance and powers’ against the evil Rajapakses , he never did anything that ran counter to the tenets of Democracy. He did not overstep those limits – not even an inch! This why we recognize him as a national leader , his foibles notwithstanding. Unbelievably it is such an exalted hero who was vilified as ‘Vel Vidhane’, by wheeler dealer Wijedasa who belongs to the scum of the lowliest of society.
Of course it is not uncommon for low bred stray dogs that defecate on the pavements to bark at thoroughbreds.
This same minister belonging to the scum of the lowliest strata of society did not stop at that. He went on to malign Professor Sarath Wijesuriya , the present convener of the movement for just society , which was in the vanguard of the campaign to overthrow corrupt , cruel and crooked Rajapakses lock ,stock and barrel for which the entire nation was most grateful and saluted.
Wijedasa , the tie coat cutthroat said , the professor is not a civil organization leader . Wijedasa who is himself a leading politico by speaking insolently of a civil organization leader , while simultaneously comparing him with a political leader clearly proved Wijedasa has no idea of what is a ‘ civil organization’
Evan Wijedasa Rajapakse insulted Lanka e news editor , and described him as a “Pullanna’ (destitute person) relying on a statement of Dinesh Gunawardena the most detested and abhorred racist of the joint opposition. Wijedasa went on to say Lanka e news in the end posted an advertisement requesting funds , and the editor is destitute.
During the Rajapakse era , when advertisers who were with Lanka e news were threatened and obstructed , Lanka e news of course did honestly call for donations from generous donors to run the website . This is seen by the dishonest wheeler dealer ‘millionaire’ racketeer as disdainful and as destitution .
Truly speaking , if , according to Wijedasa the ‘ millionaire’ wheeler dealer , LeN is destitute, then the famous Wikepedia too is destitute. The UN aid organization which is providing relief to Sri Lanka is also destitute for , if all the TV channels in every country in Europe are watched , it will become clear that there are numerous organizations in Europe which request every viewer of television channel to donate a Euro or sterling pound towards the poor people living in countries like Sri Lanka.
Zit is a pertinent question , why is the wheeler dealer millionaire Wijedasa still clinging on to the present government as a minister without any shame when the government is also asking for aid with a begging bowl from International monetary Organizations? What we can therefore deduce from the meaningless ‘destitution ‘ insults hurled by Wijedasa is , this minister is either unhinged or totally ignorant or he is an imbecile , for he cannot understand what his own mouth is blabbering . In any event , it is better to be a destitute person than to be an opportunistic wheeler dealer gnawing at the very root of the country’s dwindling economy to selfishly fatten himself. Certainly , LeN prefers its own honest life style even in poverty to Wijedasa’s wheeler dealer prosperity , as we wish to make it abundantly clear , even if Wijedasa’s ‘prosperity’ is offered on a platter , Lanka e news will not accept - no, not for all the world !
We do not mount charges which cannot be proved ,or without valid reasons, or are false unlike Wijedasa . We are accusing Wijedasa as a wheeler dealer and opportunist because we have adequate evidence to prove those charges. This racket has a long history stretching over many years. When Mahinda Rajapakse held elections in April 2010 for the second time after he became president , he did not secure a two third majority .To make up for the shortfall , what he did was he purchased MPs and ministers of the opposition .
It was during that time a large group including Paba and Manusha somersaulted most unscrupulously from the opposition after winning on the opposition votes and discarding the voters , to the Rajapakse camp purportedly to strengthen his ‘two hands’ . Among those brokers who held discussions in regard to these dastardly and illicit deals was Wijedasa Rajapakse. Wijedasa was expecting a ministry portfolio , but because the ministry portfolios were all filled , Mahinda had no option but to tell Wijedasa he can offer him a deputy minister post. It was because unconscionable Wijedasa was not in favor of that proposal , he stayed back in the opposition , and not because of dictates of policy or conscience. How can faceless , policy less opportunistic Wijedasa follow policies , let alone think of them ?
It is a well known present chairman of a State Corporation who also participated in those discussions. This participation of Wijedasa is sufficient proof that Wijedasa is an ‘opportunistic wheeler dealer.’ Of course his illicit deals put through with the most notorious and controversial Avant Garde Co. is well and widely known . So , let us not waste time to expose those. He was nicknamed ‘DealDasa’ because of his involvement in the infamous Avant Garde deals.
It was Wijedasa who was the president of the Bar Association (BASL) when corrupt criminal Rajapakses heard a case within just a night against an ex CJ Shiranee Bandaranaike to chase her away from the post un ceremonially and unlawfully. At that time this faceless policy-less Wijedasa who is best noted for double deals and double speak exploited the situation to the full to secure maximum gains from both sides. Though he carried out the protest campaign organized by the lawyers since he was the president of the BASL , he was as usual playing a double crossing game , which was borne out by his personal sentiments , when he expressly said ‘ a CJ like Shiranee Bandaranaike shall be chased away’. Lanka e news is in possession of the tape recorded evidence in proof.
When the lawyers went on a protest march at that time , Wijedasa despite being the BASL president had to be coaxed to join them like a dog that is recalcitrant and reluctant to bathe , when he should have led the protests.
It was a Lanka e news close lawyer friend who had the misfortune to hold him back in the protest procession when he was trying to desert midway. A story was doing the rounds among the lawyers during that period when the protests were being staged , the BASL president Wijedasa was called into a room by Mahinda Rajapakse (the president then ) when the latter met him , and given a good pummeling . The truth of this story which was widely circulated is known only to the victim Wijedasa and the assailant, Mahinda.
No matter what , Wijedasa thereafter quit the post of BASL president. It was only after that the struggle of the lawyers against the unlawful dismissal of the ex CJ turned strong and forged ahead. With Wijedasa’s departure , Upul Jayasuriya ,the successor of Wijedasa led the lawyers’ struggle . It was the majority opinion of the legal fraternity Jayasuriya was conducting himself as a self serving opportunist.
The false and malicious charges leveled against Lanka e news to mislead the parliament are as follows:
1.He asks how can a judge deliver an independent judgment amidst the publication of news by Lanka e news one day ahead about the judge prior to giving the verdict going to a particular home having lunch and collecting money ?
This is an absolute lie, and is intended to mislead the parliament. Lanka news had never reported that a judge pending delivery of judgment on a particular day , had lunch and collected money from anyone. We challenge him to show one such LeN report.
2.He said , Lanka e news over several months had published about 70 news reports demeaning the courts.
This is a blatant lie and intended to mislead the parliament. When he says several months , it ought to be less than a year, say 11 months maximum. That is from 18 th December 2015 until 18 th November 2016 . We challenge Wijedasa to show the 70 articles we have published as alleged by him during this period.
3.He has alleged , if 100 sterling pounds are offered to LeN editor any false mudslinging can be published .
This too is an absolute falsehood , and aimed at misleading the parliament . We challenge Wijedasa to prove one such instance.
The minister of justice Wijedasa despite discharging a most responsible task has not submitted any document in parliament to testify to his accusations leveled against Lanka e news , whereas Lanka e news which is 12 years old on the other hand unlike the minister had built a most resounding and unassailable reputation internationally as the champion of the cause of truth among its nearly four million viewers worldwide who read the Sinhala and English news published by us,.
A justice minister waxing boastful within parliament under cover of parliamentary privilege simply because he has the satanic talent to lie does not augur well for the country and the government which is tolerating him . In the end , it is the image of the government and the country that is soiled . Simply because lying is his innate nature , an inborn talent , and part of his upbringing, that does not give cause to him to lie using every orifice ( the stinking one not excluded ) on his body.
If Wijedasa can prove at least one allegation mounted by him , Lanka e news is prepared to transfer its ownership to him.
Wijedasa in his hate speech stated , since judges cannot convene media briefings , and offer explanations ,and are a hapless group , they should not be criticized no matter what wrong they commit. According to Wijedasa the justice minister of SL , when judges are criticized they cannot deliver judgments duly , and that can jeopardize the independence of the judiciary , which is therefore tantamount to committing contempt of court.
This is a distortion of the factual situation..
Judges are not a hapless breed. It is only the judges who have the permission by law even to take the life of a person , whereas even the president is not vested with that power by law. He has only the right to save a life. Even the executive president hasn’t the right to terminate the life of a person. In the circumstances , the judges are not a hapless breed. They are not a group that cannot offer explanations in their defense. This theory based on a fallacy is therefore concocted by Wijedasa the (in)justice minister in order to convey a wrong impression.
The judges who are vested with powers to take the life of a person legally are governed by a multitude of noble values and tenets to enable them to conduct themselves duly and lawfully based on discipline . They are therefore bound to adhere to those noble values and tenets , for otherwise , that can cause grave harm to society .
Lanka e news mostly criticised the judges (male and female) only when they trespassed on the noble values and tenets . For example : judges displaying photographs of theirs on the facebook most whimsically and comically to make a huge din and thereby behaving like clowns unbecoming of a judge certainly were bitterly criticised by us . Though Wijedasa did not have the capacity to appreciate our reports , the Judicial service Commission(JSC) in fact had acted on our exposures – Facebook was banned for judges by the JSC only after our reports. Therefore we wish to ask , were our actions commendable ? or a contempt of court ? The people can themselves decide .
Criticisms leveled against judges pertaining to their flaws and faults will certainly do no harm to the judges any more than the harm the judges have brought upon themselves already owing to their own misconduct . It is our analysis that of the 200 judges or thereabout in our country , only about 5 % of judges were implicated in corruption during the several decades.. In fact they were not judges , they were rogues . We are not only prepared to expose them without demur or fear , but even prove that . If these ‘rogues’ are not got rid of , the entire judiciary and its independence are in peril.
The cases of Tiran Alles and Duminda Silva are so notorious that the whole world has focused its attention on those. These are cases which concern the very touchstones of independence of the judiciary. In such cases of grave importance if it becomes evident judges turned into wheeler dealers , it is the whole country that is driven into doom and despair. Already , the most powerful world organization , is having doubts about the independence of the judgments . As a result hybrid courts system has been proposed for Sri Lanka.
If Tiran Alles can be sent home totally disregarding the sacrosanct laws in existence since 1833; if criminals like Duminda Silva the murderer and heroin Kingpin who is in the death row after being sentenced to death , can get admitted to private hospitals to enjoy to the hilt based on bogus medical certificates about his illness ; and if on the orders of our (in) justice minister , the crimes involving firearms are considered as not coming within the firearms Act , the international community is obliged to conclude , even the good governance government cannot confirm the independence of the judiciary .
When that is the situation , and in that backdrop if the International organization decides , not a temporary Hybrid court , it is rather international judges who shall be appointed permanently to monitor the court activities in SL, what can this hollow ,shallow and hare brained Wijedasa who is waxing eloquent vacuously and villainously do?
In the circumstances , it is not Lanka e news which is crusading against corrupt judges and such scoundrels by exposing as well as criticizing them with a view to correct them if not chase them , that is undermining the judicial independence in SL , or endangering the country , rather it is the Dealdasas transacting illicit and clandestine deals with corrupt and crooked judges, as well as with criminals who are their friends and accomplices , who are truly putting the judicial independence and the country in dire peril.
This is why , a great majority of genuine judges , legal luminaries and senior lawyers almost daily call and thank us profusely for the services we are rendering in the best interests of the judiciary and the country . Hence , we shall continue to carry on our tasks in the best interests of the country and the truly honorable judges and lawyers , regardless of dishonorable and discarded Dealdasas, while allowing the Dealdasas to continue with their incessant barking and howling ,the only thing they enjoy and know to do well .
Wijedasa issued boastful warnings and threats against Lanka e news based on his foolish arrogance and stupid ignorance that he would take an Interpol warrant against Lanka e news editor and get him down to SL .
Lanka e news will shortly furnish answers to his vacuous brags to enlighten and educate him on the legal position and the true scenario via another report, since this report is too lengthy already. Trying to ride the high horse on his abysmal ignorance and dismal arrogance he is sure going to have a heavy fall.
May we advise Wijedasa , before doing big things using his tiny brain and getting down Sandaruwan from England on an Interpol warrant , won’t it be better if he first learns to do small things commensurate with his brain power and apprehends the culprit who fired at his house and fled? When such a ‘great’ minister of justice (or injustice ? ) of a government cannot track down a puny culprit who committed a crime in SL, how can he arrest Sandaruwan who has sought political asylum abroad and not committed a crime , and bring him down ?
When politicians become wheeldasas and when their brain power is wasted only in that evil direction , that part of the brain which functions duly gets moth eaten due to disuse. Wijedasa too is apparently suffering from that mental syndrome.
In conclusion , let us reveal some salient truths : Lanka e news is not a personal tool of its editor Sandaruwan Senadheera. To Wijedasa and Dealdasas , he might not be a journalist . Yet the stark truth is after being in the difficulty ridden journalism profession ,Sandaruwan moved into a successful business , and again returned to the media profession. As far as we know , he is the only journalist in the profession in SL whose entire assets and earnings were reduced to ashes after he launched on the journalistic profession . When Lanka e news was commenced , he utilized his own personal funds and due to his sheer dint of hard work that Lanka e news burgeoned. Today , Lanka e news belongs to the people as a media of the people.
After Lanka e news was burnt down to ashes , it were public donations that helped to re build it. Indeed the computer used to write this report belongs to the people. The chair used to sit is theirs .The table is theirs . In fact the telephone , electricity , the internet bills etc. are met out of public donations .
Unlike rogues and rascals who take pride (counterfeit) in their prosperity built on illicit deals , perfidious activities and robbery of public funds, and who insult us as destitute , we say with honest pride that we have a great many donors with our internal information service . What’s more ? the utmost and absolute truths Lanka e news brings home to the people fearlessly , frankly and forthrightly also belong to the people.
We wish to once again inform the public we shall continue to bring forth to the people the truths unalloyed and unadulterated pertaining to our motherland conveyed to Lanka e news by the public .We shall as before so in the future unhesitatingly publish the truths . Truth certainly stings Dealdasas , tie coat turncoats , rascals and scoundrels , but as far as we are concerned , as long as it accomplishes the goals in the best interests of the country and the nation we shall not hesitate to reveal them , come what may. The rascals ,racists ,scoundrels , Dealdasas ,criminals , the corrupt and traitors can go hang !
Incarcerating Sandaruwan is simple . Even murdering him is not difficult. But if it is the hope by that the revelation of truth and espousing its cause by Lanka e news can be stopped , it’s an illusion . Even if Sandaruwan is not there , certainly there will emerge in his place a youth who perhaps will be more intelligent , capable ,energetic , competent and sacrificial . That is for sure.
When the country is forging ahead on its journey towards achieving peace ,harmony and freedom on behalf of the people while restoring Democracy and social justice , after throwing out the corrupt ,criminal and crooked Rajapakse regime, and with a government of good governance in place , it is one aim and agenda that is being pursued – country’s progress , and that shall be accomplished somehow.
In any country , its society has been steered forward and uplifted only through the small contributions of a majority and huge contributions of the minority . Hence let us emphatically state , those achievements were not owing to Dealdasas , racketeers and political opportunists . On the contrary a country doesn’t need them . The earlier the country gets rid of them the better !
The bottom line :
Let us make it abundantly clear , even if Sandaruwan is a ‘pulanna’ he prefers that honest lifestyle to the opulence of dishonest Dealdasas. Neither he nor Lanka e news wishes to be a Dealdasa who takes pride on illicitly earned and amassed wealth , and indulges in vilification of the honest and the truthful as ‘pulanna’ (the destitute)
We are overwhelmed by the countless responses received by us from politicians , viewers , professionals , diverse organizations and thousands of others in SL and abroad following the threats posed by the Justice minister of SL. They inspired us to the hilt with their most encouraging comments as well as by extending fullest support to us. Meanwhile , the support extended by Home office of Britain as well as the judiciary and legal fraternity of SL are unforgettable . Our effusive thanks to all of them !

GalagodaAththe Gnanasara had spoken much praisefully about Wijedasa and his Ministry recently, so we can just guess where the things are leading. Wijedasa had particularly asked for JO's support, in parliament.

To understand the mentality of WDR one will have only to look at his publicity materials for last general election. Through all of all those materials WDR was introduced to masses as 21st Century " Maha Pranchaya "" ( Man of Wisdom ). Who will do such an advertisement for himself .. So you do not have to look any further to understand how his brains work
