Response to Gandara John
Posted on May 29th, 2017

Rahul Says

Bim Saviya stripped the Judiciary of its powers to sit in judgment on matters relating to ownership of land; those ‘Judicial’ powers were wilily transferred to the Executive – the Minister of Lands – causing disequilibrium in the delicate ‘check- and- balance’ structures of governance between the Executive, the Judiciary and the Legislature.

With the Minister of Lands thus empowered to give ownership of land to persons of his choice, with the Minister of Lands granted immunity from prosecution for his indiscretions, with ownership of land executed and registered even in fraudulent circumstances made irreversible, with disputed ownership of land unchallengeable in a court of law, the US has through the ‘Bim Saviya’ law, neatly sewn up Sri Lanka for the control of her assets which include her intangible strategic location; in short, the US has established the basic foundation  to make Sri Lanka one of its colonies.

The nub of Mr.John’s article is that this law of 1998 has been introduced, funded and promoted by the US. It is the framework of American Colonialism and would enable the Americans, their Indian agents and their terrorist mercenaries to buy permanently the country’s land. Once bought their ownership would be irreversible.and can only be relinquished by the owner.

We got to see the wood for the trees. As a lawyer I see some inaccuracies in Mr. Lorenzo’s comments. To dwell on them would be to distract readers from the imminent danger Mr. John is alerting us to.

He has given a solution. Amend the relevant provisions in Bim Saviya that will restore the authority of Sri Lanka’s Judiciary and that will revoke the power of the Minister of Lands”.

It is good to bear in mind that no politician, of whatever hue he may be, is sovereign. It is the country and its people who are sovereign.

I agree with Mr. John that we need to act fast.

    I AGREE with John. IMMEDIATE action is needed.

    I copied information from the NORTHERN PROVINCIAL COUNCIL website (in 2011 – BEFORE TNA was in charge of the NPC) and from DAILY MIRROR – two CREDIBLE sources. I added comments to them.

    “..American Colonialism and would enable the Americans, their Indian agents ” or is it? “Indian Colonialism and would enable the Indians, their American agents..”
