Prof. Hoole is not a fool. HE is a tool. How did the Constitutional Council Appointed a Nigerian Citizen as a member of the Sri Lanka Election Commission?

This controversial man’s full name appears as Samuel Ratnajeevan Herbert Hoole and he is referred to as a Sri Lankan Tamil engineer and academic. He is a member of the election commission of Sri Lanka appointed by the Constitutional Council headed by former Speaker Karu Jayasuriya.

According to his Bio data as given in Wikipedia, he was born on September 15, 1952, in Sri Lanka But his nationality is shown as Nigerian. I am surprised as to how a Nigerian national was appointed to the Sri Lanka National Election Commission. Well if Rani’s Government could appoint Arjuna Mahendran, a Singaporean national and citizen as the Governor of the Central Bank (the whole world knows what Mahendran did to the Central Bank of this country with the assistance of Ranil and Ravi ) one could ask the question as to what is wrong in appointing a Nigerian national as a member of the Election Commission. The rationale must be lying there. That may be the reason as to why both the Speaker of the House at that time Karu J who is supposed to be the Chairman of the Constitutional Council and President Sirisena must have kept mum when Ranil wanted Hoole appointed as a member of the Election Commission, for reasons he may have had, up in his sleeves.

Though he is called a Nigerian National his name indicates that he is a hybrid product of the Christian Church a combination of British Tamil hybrid genre like Ramanadans and Coomaraswamies. Who were bred by the British to destroy the Sinhala Buddhists of this country and take over the leadership of British Ceylon after they leave.. But contrary to Coomaraswamies and Ramanadans who recognized the  true place of the Sinhala Buddhist civilization as the hall mark of this country, Hoole appears to behave just like a real slave Tamil Christian of the British Colonial plunderers. And a bull in a china shop in our context.   Looking at his upbringing and cultural back ground his anti- Sinhala, and anti Buddhist behavior is not surprising by any means.

The following four incidents clearly shows that he is not suitable to be appointed to independent Commission and he has never been independent in his duties and also  his in born animosity  towards the Sinhala Buddhists.

1His going to the Supreme Court against holding elections while continuing as a member of the country’s National election Commission which is expected at least in theory to be independent and conduct election impartially

2 His entering the Election Commission with this daughter, a Covid 19 suspect under quarantine,  who had nothing to do with election work, violating the Covid 19 related guidelines of the Government of the country

3 Suggesting that holding Election in this country should get the approval of the WHO and Health Authorities of this country and he does not accept the authority of the Director General of Health  of the Government of the country

4 His public statement over a Tamil TV Channel in Jaffna asking the people to not to vote the SLPP

 Furthermore the nasty and ridiculous comment on the Sinhala as ‘Garbage” and his declaration he does not know Sinhala the language of the country. While condemning his behavior out right, in this backdrop the whole country should demand him to resign immediately from the Commission. If he doesn’t the authorities should sack without any delay. Meanwhile I am also puzzled as to why the Chairman ask him to resign or ask the authorities to replace him with a suitable person.

 My biggest puzzle is as to why the Appointing authorities or the Government doesn’t take immediate action against this Tool Man and sack him from the NEC immediately and arrest him and put him behind bars for these treacherous acts so that all such treacherous fellows will learn a good lesson.

    “Hoole is not a fool, but a tool…”. Very likely. This is an excellent article. However, it is not correct to say that Hoole is of Nigerian citizenship. But he has dual citizenship of SL and USA. He was born in Nallur to Christian parents on the given date and attended school in Jaffna; his father was a Christian. He graduated as an engineer from Moratuwa University, and got even an MSc from it, before joining the London Uni for his PhD…a brilliant scholar, was a popular teacher among students at Peradeniya, but he is a rabid racist ‘intellectual’ committed to the hilt for fulfilling the duties assigned to Tamil intelligentsia via the infamous 1976 Vaddukoddai resolutions formulated for achieving the aims of the Tamil Eelam project. Though the project has been militarily aborted, the ideology persists is spite of ordinary Tamils’aversion to it. Opportunistic communal politicians, assisted by currently well- known traitors, and people like Hoole contrive to keep the Eelam dream still alive. Hoole is ferociously anti-Sinhala and anti-Buddhist.

    The following Wikipedia entry is as it appears there today (June 10) with number references removed: “Hoole was born on 15 September 1952. He is the son of Rev. Richard Herbert Ratnathurai Hoole and Jeevamany Somasundaram. He was educated at Nallur CMS Practising School and St. John’s College, Jaffna. He was offered a position to study at the University of Ceylon, Peradeniya in 1970 but as there were too many Tamil students at Peradeniya he was transferred to the Ceylon College of Technology, graduating from the University of Sri Lanka Katubedda campus in 1975 with a B.Sc degree in electrical engineering. He received a M.Sc. in electrical machines and power systems from the University of London in 1977 and a Ph.D. in electromagnetic field computation from Carnegie Mellon University in 1983. In 1993 he received a D.Sc. in computational electromagnetics from the University of London.

    Hoole is married to Dushyanthi Hoole, a fellow academic from the Michigan State University. They have three daughters (Mariyahl Mahilmany, Elisapeththu Elilini and Annahl Anbini) and a son (Yovahn Yesuraiyan Ratnajeevan). He is the brother of Rajan Hoole. Hoole is a Christian and a member of the Church of Ceylon. He holds dual Sri Lankan and US citizenship.”

    Sorry. “…his father was a Christian” must be corrected as “…his father was a Christian priest.”
