I never said Mahinda siphoned off money – Rajitha
Posted on June 22nd, 2016


I never said that former President Mahinda Rajapaksa siphoned off money, Minister Rajitha Senaratne says.
The observation was made at a press conference held in Colombo this afternoon (22).
I asserted that Rajapaksas were behind this, and as well as it was those who were around him involved in this,” he added.
Former President Rajapaksa earlier said that he will cut his throat if the authorities find evidence to prove this.
They say I have stolen $18 billion, but if they find evidence of even $1, I will cut my throat,” he said in an interview with Jeff Kingston for the Japan Times.

    Former President Mahinda Rajapaksa told this to the electronic media and the print media in the run-up to the 2015 Presidential elections, who this two faced “two faced” deceptive politician was. Mahinda Rajapaksa is more than a Politician, HE IS A STATESMAN, so when he made an International Public Statement in Japan that that he will cut his throat if the authorities find evidence to prove that he had stolen even $ 1, this guy would have got “JITTERY”.
    During the time he was with Mahinda government and was making many trips to Norway, I had a feeling that there is something surprising, because Mahinda government was vehemently opposed to some of the actions (international moves) taken by the Norwegian government and also the involvement of the Norwegian diplomats dabbling in our local affairs and politics. But come the presidential elections and the pre-election activities, it is now revealed that Rajitha Seneratne’s visits to Norway was to facilitate the R2R Regime change project by the international community who were opposed to Mahinda (UPFA) ruling Sri Lanka. Rajitha’s son, now an MP of the UNP had clearly explained the CONSPIRACY to the media lately. HE. President Maithripala Sirisena and PM Ranil Wickremasinghe should be vigilant about this father and son political conspirators, because if they will pursue corruption charges on the frauds and corruptions reported above, he may try to topple (CHANGE) the Yahapalana government too. This is the trump this treacherous politician who robbed the Government Hospital (Dental Division) for around Rs. 450,000/= and when was removed from his parliament seat cuddled UNP leader Ranil and got a nominated MP post to parliament .The name sited as Dr N.H.R.H. Senaratne, NIC number 501501760 V, who deposited RS 7,500,000 is none other than Dentist and MP Rajitha Seneratne in the Golden Key Company frauds. Much was highlighted in the media then. This is in a court case concerning the Golden Key Company taken up in January 2013. This information has been extracted from Watawala report. In another case against this UNSCULPROUS politician, representing former Deputy Minister of Justice Dilan Perera, Wijeydasa Rajapashke in 1999 petitioned the Court of Appeal insisting that Dr. Rajitha Senaratne who at the time was an opposition member of parliament had no right to hold office as MP and sit or vote in parliament. The argument was that Senaratne had been engaged in business with a government institution while holding office as MP. As a result, on March 31, 2000 the Court of Appeal held that Dr. Rajitha Senaratne had no right to hold office as a member of parliament. Article 91 (1) (e) of Sri Lanka’s present constitution states that “no person shall be qualified to be elected as a member of parliament or to sit and vote in Parliament” and section (1) (e) of that Article says “if he has any such interest in any such contract made by or on behalf of the state or a public corporation as parliament shall by law prescribe.” The Court of Appeal at the time it made its ruling in the Senaratne case, also held that it was manifestly clear that the first respondent, Rajitha Senaratne had entered into a contract with a government department or a government institution during his tenure of office as MP and that therefore he has disqualified himself to be an MP. The accusation against Dr. Senaratne at the time was that he had solicited and been awarded contracts to supply medical equipment to the Health Ministry during his tenure as a sitting member of parliament. But the worst in support of Mahinda Rajapaksa and against Rajitha Seneratne comes out now as RUMOURS, that Rajitha Seneratne during his tenure of being Minister of Fisheries has been soliciting large amounts of payments from each exporter to allocate special licenses for the export of BECHE-DE-ME or SEA CUCUMBER from Sri Lanka during a time and even now, it was a prohibited marine life. Many BECHE-DE-ME or SEA CUCUMBER modalities in the Mannar district, Northern peninsular and even down south will vouch for this corruption. President Maithripala Sirisena and PM Ranil Wickremasinghe should NOT FAIL to proceed with all FCID complaints Minister Rajitha Seneratne and his son.

    If Rajitha had few trips to Norway, then I suspect whether there was a conspiracy by Rajitha jointly with Bodu Bala Sena (BBS). BBS also when to Norway few times during the MR time and the most publicized BBS clash with Muslims happened inside Rajitha’s electorate at Beruwala. Even if Rajitha at that time appeared to have spoken in favour of Muslims in the area, I didn’t notice him going all the way against BBS. It was just a touch and go against BBS which was very nominal and not serious. This must be a clash pre-planned by Rajitha and BBS to erode Muslim votes off MR’s support base, just pretending to be against each other. It was just a Norway appears to be the source of the conspiracy and the rest are just the “cat’s paw”. My guess is that even Norway was in the net laid off by CIA, and it wasn’t just Norway’s own creation.

    As per what Rajitha himself said after changing the government there were talks (between Ranil, Chandrika and Rajitha) about toppling MR regime some 18 months before presidential elections, and Ranil offered Rajitha to be the presidential nominee from the UNP led coalition.

    Thank you Noor for this information.

    But this Yamapalanaya will not probe Rajitha!!

    These opportunists are with thick skin and know how to survive and change colour!!

  4. Hiranthe Says:

    Good point raised by Wetta,

    Not only BBS, Ven Sobhitha was visiting Norway. It looks like that Norway / West / Endia have very cleverly planned this Regime Change including both Ven Sobhitha and BBS into the action plan. That is how they defeated the Sinhela Nation.

    More and more things will come to surface.. Let’s keep our eyes opened.

    This external forces are still continuing with their planning and improving the strategies. That is why the No confidence motion against Ravi could not win….

    They will work tirelessly until this Island is divided. They all need a piece of the sweet pie.

    I think Wetta has brought up an interesting matter worth investigating into. We should find out who created BBS (some say a powerful woman close to Norway), just to antagonise the Muslims against Rajapakse during the elections. Also, why did both Rajitha and BBS visit Norway and coincidentally or deliberately, why BBS created issues with Muslims in Rajitha’s Beruwala electorate. These issues were absolutely nothing compared to massive issues faced by Muslims in the very countries that exaggerated the Sri Lankan incidents through their media and NGOs.

    It is said, Rajitha and others like him ruined the name of Rajapakses by alleging they robbed the nation but are now trying to back track, as the grass root Sri Lankans who love the country have not swallowed their allegations and are still loyal to Mahinda and Gotabaya. Whatever wrong practices Rajitha engaged in could be covered up just like those of the others in the Yahapalanaya leadership, as long as they remain loyal to Ranil, as the country’s justice system seems to be controlled by Ranil to suit his needs with the blessings of Sirisena, who seems to be interested only in filling his family album with photos taken with him smiling and shaking hands with international leaders.
