No Confidence Motion against Ranil Prompted by Bond issue
Posted on May 11th, 2015

BY SHAAHIDAH RIZA Ceylontoday,

Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe is party to the biggest financial fraud in Sri Lanka’s post independence history and a No Confidence Motion against him must be in order, said Western Provincial Councillor and leader of the Pivithuru Hela Urumaya (PHU) Udaya Gammanpila to Ceylon Today, yesterday (10).

He made these comments with regard to Central Bank Governor, Arjuna Mahendran who is allegedly involved in the controversial treasury bonds issue, which caused a loss of Rs 45 billion according to Gammanpila.


The leader of the National Freedom Front (NFF) and Parliamentarian, Wimal Weerawansa also expressed the same concern at the Kurunegala rally last Friday (8). He said, “The true opposition hopes to submit a No Confidence Motion against the Prime Minister during the course of the week.

This will lead to a quick dissolution of Parliament, thus it is prudent to prepare for general elections.”
Although most MPs have not yet voiced their support for the No Confidence Motion against the Prime Minister, Gammanpila stated that he is confident of garnering support. He said, “The opposition MPs made a request to remove the Central Bank Governor and 114 signatures were obtained to see this through. However, the Prime Minister did not heed the request. Instead he appointed a committee made up of his colleagues who cleared Mahendran. He did not appoint a proper Parliamentary Select Committee to investigate it. I have confidence that those 114 MPs will support this move. In addition, there are also ministers who voiced their concerns about the Mahendran case, including the Cabinet Spokesperson and Health Minister, Rajitha Senaratne.”
Meanwhile Deputy Minister of Investment Promotions, Eran Wickramaratne said that the government will present the report to Parliament and the opposition can read it and call for a Parliamentary Committee on the issue.
“I think there should be a discussion on the matter and I think this should be investigated in a transparent manner,” he said.

    At last some thing is happening. There is a show of courage. This should have been done loing ago. They should continue with no confidence motions against Ravi Karunanayagam, Mangala Samaraweera along with a case for defam of the good name of the former Ptresident. If possible an impeachment for the President Maithripala Sirisena

    Not only did Ranil installed Arjun Mahendran (nephew ?), Governor Central Bank, do the scam of depleting the country of Rs 45 Billion, Mahendran was re-installed as Governor CB after a FALSE inquiry by a committee consisting of Ranil’s three friends who exonerated Mahendran ! Talk about “owning” Lanka and ruining it too ! The word FALSE covers most of the actions of the new illegal govt.

    Begs the question : Who appointed Ranil as PM in the first place ? Will that person take responsibility for the damage done ?

  4. Fran Diaz Says:

    We think the fradulently obtained money may be likely being used to ‘buy’ people over to the UNP consortium ….

  5. Metteyya_Brahmana Says:

    The basic problem with Ranil is that he never understood what PUBLIC SERVICE was really about, and describes it as a “blood sport” in a recent interview rather than as a selfless pursuit of the best long-term interest of the people of the country.

    A blood sport is boxing or kung fu, so when you reduce public service to a blood sport, you end up with the foolishness that Ranil is engaged in now, in which he is squandering all of his power on personal and family attacks against perceived political enemies using government force, which only embroils the country in political infighting.

    No one really cares other than Ranil or Chandrika about which family dynasty is going to rule Sri Lanka, so Ranil needs to get over this childish pursuit and focus all of his energy on doing the public good. A good starting point would be to admit that his own ‘independent’ committee got it wrong on the Bond Fraud at the Central Bank, and have the CID and Attorney General investigate and prosecute all responsible persons regardless of their party affiliation or personal friendship with him.

    Central Bank – Bond Fraud

    A proper assessment of the loss arising and continue to accrue in the coming months and years going up to 30 years should be made. The gravity of the loss should be articulated to the people in terms that they can understand. So far I have not seeing any financial expert informing the public in the language that they can understand.

    A few weeks ago there was an article in Lankaweb – Kamba Horu – that showed how much could have been done with the losses – how many Norochachali’s, how many Mattala Airports, how many ports similar to Hambantota port etc. I don’t know how much this expose is factual! Apart from the exact figure that is the way it should be articulated to the public.

    This fraud supposed to be the biggest in Sri Lanka’s history perpetrated within the much tooted one hundred days shows the arrogance of unearned political power exercised by the usurper. The “Waiter” President who is supposed to be the head of this robber administration too stand accused of looking the other side while the very people whose President he is, stand robbed and impoverished and bonded in perpetuity to suffer the consequences. The role of Ranil, Ravi and others in the legal fraternity who dishonestly tried to hide the truth must be told to the public.

    Can somebody undertake this much needed exercise and properly inform the people in the language they can understand and explain what they should do to bring the fraudsters to justice.

    I listened to the Kurunegala speeches, they were mainly rhetoric with little substance. If those who want to bring Mahinda Rajapakse are really interested they must be rich in substance than in mere shouting. None even tried to expose and explain the promises made in the run to the Presidential Elections on 8 Jan and how many the Yamapalana Horu have simple failed to do or even address.

    Bring back Mahinda campaign should be much more organised than what they are today. When addressing the people they must not only address the 5.8 Million who voted for Mahinda but also others who were fooled into believe that there was mega fraus in the pervious administration.

  7. Fran Diaz Says:

    I agree with Ratnapala. Someone who really cares should present the Central Bank scam facts in a lucid fashion to the public of Sri Lanka. The LOSSES MUST BE CLEARLY EXPOSED FOR ALL TO UNDERSTAND. The Public of Lanka deserves that much.

    CHARLES, WHAT IS THIS GREAT FEAR TO TAKE THIS BUGGER TO COURTS. WHERE ARE THE PATRIOTIC LAWERS.? DOES NOT MR HAVE ANY GOOD LAWYERS ? UNBELIEVABLE. SIRAS BROTHER’S SALARY IS SOME 5 MILLION A MONTH. NEPOTISM AT ITS BEST. I THINK, SIRA RANIL CHAURY HERI , RAVIYA, ARE ALL IN THE SAME PLAN TO ROB THE COUNTRY WHOLESALE. HOW CAN A FOREIGN TAMIL BUGGER BE APPOINTED AS GOVERNOR OF THE CENTRAL BANK. THIS IS A TAMIL PLOY. ALL THESE BUGGERS WOULD BE IN THE JAIL HOUSE, IN USA, POSSIBLY SENT TO GITMO FOR A TORTURE SESSION, TILL THEY TAKE THEIR LAST BREATH. THIS CENTRAL BANK FRAUD HAS TO BE THE TALK OF THE DAY, AND PEOPLE MUST COME OUT IN THEIR MILLIONS TO PUT THESE BUGGERS INTO JAIL.

    JAY ! YES THE BUGGERS FACE LOOKS LIKE A PIGS ASS STRUCK BY LIGHTNING. BLOODY ROGUE. BATALANDA MURDERER.

    Those Yankee Doodles in the Govt of Gays think that we are all stupids who believe every word they say and they think they can play with their doodles without anybody seeing or hear. Goofy old haggards you have to find a place to hide now itself before we catch you after the elections. Oh Lord save thy Christians before we crucify them alive.

    How can there be a true Opposition with this Sira as head of the Opposition party? It’s absurd. First thing S.L.F.P. must do is to sack this MY3 from the party president post and appoint MR as head again to have a real fight between Govt and Opposition. Appaya is a cheater from the day one.He will never leave his pal Ranil or Choura and come to help the party to win the next election. It cannot be done because he came to power with the help of UNP,TNA,Muslims and other small parties who were financed by America and the western allies of Ranil. MR should take over the party and lead it if they want to be the winner if not again there will be a coup led by Americans and Indians to get Ranil to power.

    All crooks and thugs and Gay boys and Drunkards are all in this Govt not previous and little by little one fraud after another is coming to light so let’s see what they will do against their own kith and kin? Riyaz Baddudin is a savior for Muslims who openly steal lands and distribute? Any action Madam Ranil? OH what a Govt Where is Democracy you were talking about? If not for MR and Gota we wouldnt have a country to call home. These UNP traitors had fun with our war heroes.They told any fool can fight if he had a gun. Today they talk,walk,listen and hear because of MR if not Prabakaran would have sent them to hell by this time like they did to their leader Premadasa. Murderers hand over the country as one and just leave for God’s sake.

    If these claims are proven to be true, the western powers that have so far backed the present regime in SL, will be faced with a political dilemma that, they did not have to have.

    SO CALLED BUDDHIST SRI LANKA.

    lawyers. Surprise surprise, gay boy ranil was clelared. Reports was handed to non other than gay boy ranil
    himself. He admitted his mistake and sent himself to prison for life. What a principled man!

    Namaste: This is not Sri Lanka as people in the Indian Subcontint ha land of Sihale, Sela, Seyo=lon, Seylan, Celiao, Xylon. Tmei to change backour name to Ceylon to identify us with the people of the Island the Sinhala Buddhists, Muslims and Christians not Indian colonial parasites and Vermin. Jai Hind.

  14. Kumari Says:

    I thought Bandula Gunawardena’s presentation on the subject (which cost him his place in the SLFP Central Committee), explained very well how the fraud took place and how the country’s business community is going to suffer due to high interest rates.

    I watched it on Lankaweb a couple of weeks ago and would like the Lankaweb editor to re-publish this presentation as well as Wimal Weerawansa’s speech in parliament voting down the Rs400M funding increase.

  15. Fran Diaz Says:

    Kumari,

    I watched it too. Though a very good presentation, Ii is not very clear in some aspects. In spoken language, the highlights do not come out clearly. It ought to be a WRITTEN article where the figures stand out clearly and readers and research folk can truly see the side effects of the scam.
