Officers Of Courage And Dedication
Being Compensated With Imprisonment.
Gotabhaya-The Seeing Eye Of Serendib For LankaWeb
A few predictions have been made that the New UNF Government will start
the rut leading into a dangerous scenario of betrayal into the hands of
the lurking LTTE and appear to be unfolding as reality this very moment.
A group of elite LRRP Covert Operations Army Officers who created heavy
inroads into the LTTE are being held in unsanitary conditions in Kandy
under the Prevention Of Terrorism Act and is this the compensation these
brave Sons Of Lanka are given for their heroics and their selfless dedication
towards preserving the Territorial Integrity Of Sri Lanka? Shameful and
Decorumless in the manner their movements have been linked to a possible
security breach using Udathalawinna as the excuse by the Authorities and
an expression of concern for their own security which in reality was more
than secure even prior to the elections.
Not only have the identities of these Officers been revealed to the general
public in direct violation of the Army Ordinance and Regulations but the
Administration has had the affront to transform them into lawbreakers
which is a pathetic display of ingratitude towards some who have given
their best towards their Motherland in an obtuse diplay of false righteousness
where even Presidential Authority appears to have been bypassed.
In what appears to have been an unpardonable breakdown of communications
where instructions and conclusions between the Top Brass Of Security intermingled
with the random conjecture of the New Administration trigger happy and
quick to point fingers at the previous regime has resulted in mass confusion
which has led to the turn of events splashed in headlines the World Over.
The consequential meaningless arrests and holding of these Brave Officers
needs immediate redress and their release secured to prevent further damage
being done towards National Security and its very image which in recent
times seems to be questionable.
This was the very prediction made by the analysts who were univoiced in
their belief that it would be a matter of time before the new Administration
sets the ball rolling into uncertainty and there has even been suggestions
that infighting between the rank and file of the Armed Forces could result
and would be a welcome change for the LTTE to whom the Officers held in
imprisonment were a sooth and efficient operational force much to their
chagrin and wreaked havoc within their cadres in a manner reminiscent
of Major General Janaka Perera.
Is this a further confirmation that all obstacles in the path of the LTTE
are being systematically removed regardless of World Opinion and that
the hollow cries against what the ringleaders of LTTE support loosely
term 'Sinhala Chauvinism' are being heeded in order to justify the projected
predilections towards the LTTE as shown by the new Regime who regardless
of posterity and the future of the Nation appear to be playing a dangerous
