APPOINTMENT OF ASOKA MILINDA MORAGODA AS THE HIGH COMMISSIONER FOR THE REPUBLIC OF INDIA WITH SPECIAL CABINET RANK

We would like to bring to your notice the shocking and appalling points relevant to the above mentioned appointment which the Government of Sri Lanka does not seem to have taken into consideration in selecting the candidate Milinda Moragoda

Allegations of Corruption, Abuse of Power and Working for the American Government as an informant when working in the Sri Lankan government (to put it in simple language he is an American spy in the Sri Lankan political establishment). We would like to bring to your notice what is said in ”Wikipedia”” about Milinda Moragoda regarding his  Corruption, Abuse of Power and Spying for the American Government while working in the Sri Lankan Government

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Milinda_Moragoda

Milnda Moragoda as a Government minister in the UNF government proposed that Sri Lanka move out of the Non-Align Group and form a Group of Nations Aligned to his masters the USA. Had this happened this would have had serious repercussions to Sri Lanka Foreign Policy and Security. The website referred below gives information in this regard.

We would also like to bring to your notice that MIlinda Moragoda is a dual citizen (i.e. a citizen of USA and Sri Lanka) while his spouse is an American citizen by birth. His appointment as the Sri Lankan High commissioner for India therefore is in violation of the constitution of Sri Lanka where under amendment 19A Dual Citizens cannot be a MP, and since MP’s are public representatives of the people, accordingly we interpret that High Commissioners and Ambassadors of the country who are representatives of the people cannot have dual loyalties.

USA is a superpower that has hegemonic and invasive designs on Sri Lanka and has intentions to evict Chinese interests from Sri Lanka as part of their Indo-Pacific Quad lateral Axis consisting of India, USA, Australia, & Japan. Therefore we believe that appointing Milinda Moragoda to a country which is part of this axis, would seriously compromise the foreign relations with other power blocs in bi-polar world such as China, Russia, Pakistan, Iran, Cuba etc.

Major General Kamal Guneratna (Retd) the current Secretary to the Ministry of Defense in his magnum opus, Rana Maga Osse, states that Minister Milinda Moragoda had tried to convince General Guneratna to give up a forward position at the request of the LTTE and had bluntly declared that the Army could never defeat the LTTE. General Guneratna, in his book, quotes Milinda Moragoda as having told him that the Army could never win this war. He had further declared that although, the army had waged war for about 20 years, it could never bring the war to a successful conclusion. He had also said since the Army couldn’t achieve success, in the future, the government was going ahead with negotiations. 

In a matter of concern which needs to be checked out by your committee it is alleged that during the Peace Talk Process with the LTTE Milinda Moragoda was promoting a request made by the LTTE for Air Topology Maps of Sri lanka” that are highly classified under National Security. The request came through Milinda Moragoda on behalf of the LTTE in the pretext that these details were needed for the Twin Otter Aircraft flight that brought Anton Balasingham which landed in Iranamadu Tank runway. It was flown by two Canadian Pilots. This request for Air Topology Maps of Sri lanka” by Milinda Moragoda on behalf of the LTTE was refused by the MOD as it would pose a grave national security risk by making Sri Lanka extremely vulnerable to air attacks by her enemies.  However, we have been reliably made to understand that Milinda Moragoda had subsequently approached the Civil Aviation Authorities and they had provided the full set of Air Topology Maps which Moragoda had handed over to the LTTE. It is said that these maps were used by the LTTE to carry out the Air Attacks on the City of Colombo. That being the case, if this allegation is proven to be true and accurate then Milinda Moragoda has a history of being instrumental in giving out Nationally Classified Secret Information to the enemy of Sri Lanka and it is our contention that such a person is in no way suitable to represent Sri Lanka in a country like India.

In view and consideration of the information given above the National Joint Committee is of the firm view that Milinda Moragoda is no longer suitable to any position in the government of Sri Lanka, due to his dual citizenship, his allegiances to USA and track record of treacherous action against Sri Lanka.

We hope the members of this committee will consider our representation and prevent Milinda Moragoda from taking the position of High Commissioner of India with special Cabinet rank.   

Thank you

Yours faithfully.

    Looks like the US is gong to make her first ambassadorial appointment in Sri Lanka. What a coup! In one stroke two appointments – one to represent US for their Indo- Pacific Command and the other one to be the Viceroy of Sri Lanka on behalf of the Empire!

    This travesty of Executive misjudgement should not happen. Definitely not the expectation of Sinhala Buddhist who overwhelmingly stood up to bring the Gotabhaya Admininistration into power.

    I believe we are in a very tricky situation and caught in some sort of a trap. Parliamentarians will have to act wisely not considering their personal gains to protect the country’s interest. If not we will be in the same situation we were in 1505 with various foreigners fighting each other. It is worse now as there is this big brother, India, nearby.

    May be MR can do something (or will be forced to do it) again.
