World Alliance for Peace in Sri Lanka PO Box 4066, Mulgrave VIC 3170, Australia

We are shocked to hear the attempts by a group of politicians in Sri Lanka for their political expediency to reveal the names of the officers and staff working for the national security intelligence, We earnestly request these misguided politicians to protect the State secret information for the good of the people in Sri Lanka rather than looking out for political point scoring.

 The officers and the staff of the national intelligence services have played an important role in the war against the LTTE terrorism at the risk of their lives. They provided very important information for the defence forces as well as the civilian organizations to withstand the onslaught of the terrorist LTTE. In the post war period of consolidating the peace and the prosperity enjoyed by the 20 million ordinary citizens the national intelligence play a crucial role in identifying the subversive elements and vitally important information gathering including taking action to counter the moves to destabilize the nation through collection of arms, money laundering etc .

 We have had a nasty experience in the raid of Millennium city raid where again it was put into operation due to short term political gain. When the names of the officers manning the project was named publicly the episode ended by the officers having to pay the supreme price. The critical information on the LLRC was made known in public and the LTTE hunted down 44 officers and killed them mercilessly. It was indeed a pathetic story of a politically motivated effort resulting in destroying the eyes and the ears of national security and demotivating the officers and the staff who practically spend a good part of their lives in protecting the Nation.

 We should consider the issue of the National Security to be above day to day politics especially when Sri Lanka has to withstand a questionable and a baseless UNHRC investigation and has to keep her eyes and ears open to avoid the creation of political springs” of different hues to pave the way to rob the citizens of the gains enjoyed by them for last 4 years.

 We request again all the politicians to play the game avoiding the hits below belt and upholding the crucial importance of the National Security at all times. We also request the Government to consider introducing urgent legislation to protect the National Security and the staff appropriately,

  1. Mr. Bernard Wijeyasingha Says:

    These so called ‘misguided politicians” have violated the security of the nation in a manner similar to a terrorist. They should be impeached, and removed from office. They should never be allowed to run for any kind of public service anymore.

  2. Ratanapala Says:

    USA is trying to bring to book Julian Asange, Edward Snowden and have imprisoned Chelsey Manning on charges of divulging state secrets. It is difficult to imagine the reasons behind the Sri Lanka authorities not to apprehend those behind the Millennium City treachery and now this Ponna Mangala? There is no point in wailing over state media that treachery is being enacted. Failure to apprehend these vermins is tantamount to collusion.

  3. Lorenzo Says:

    “Failure to apprehend these vermins is tantamount to collusion.”

    Yes. Those who allow traitors to live are also traitors.

    NO traitor must die naturally in this blessed island.

    DMI and SIS must TRACK DOWN these politicians, their henchos, those who gave them info. and ELIMINATE them ASAP.

    I also noted a Muslim society has written to the president and DEMANDED the names of STF officers who shot dead 3 Jihad terrorists in Aluthgama. This type of targeted Jihad acts on British soldiers is well known. ELAM JIHAD is trying to do the same. These terrorists must be eliminated in the most brutal manner denying them even basic human dignity.

    I totally agree with Lorenzo!

  5. Lorenzo Says:

    Thanks Suman.

    Welcome to the forum!

  6. AnuD Says:

    Mahinda Rajapakse is not King Dutugemunu at all.

    King Dutugemunu was determined and he did exactly what he wanted to do.

    Mahinda Rajapakse is weak.

  7. AnuD Says:

    Mahinda Rajapakse is cared for his life.

    “We live only once”.

  8. Lorenzo Says:

    But if intelligence officers’ security is compromised, there will be NO SL!

    They are our FIRST LINE OF DEFENCE. Many many sacrifices were made to raise the world’s BEST COUNTER TERRORISM intel network. LTTE funded groups are trying to dismantle it.

    I’m AMAZED how QUICKLY the LTTE transformed itself from a terrorist group to a CUNNING STRATEGIC GROUP using clever tactics of deceit, bribes, manipulation, etc. to get things done. We have to transform our strategies accordingly.
