The prat-fallen and shameless Jeppo leader Anura Kumara Dissanayake, who was mainly responsible from 2015 to 2020 for all the ravages, hardships, and torments suffered by the people of this country due to his utterly disgraceful servitude to protect his Ranil Haamu and his destructive government keeps on holding meetings just in a vain attempt to project that he is a valid politician in this country by making mischievous and scornful allegations against the government.

This member of the gang of robbers who ferociously snatched away the ID cards, gold jewelry, and money from the people during their horrendous rule from 87-90 and still audaciously celebrate these atrocities in the despicable name of Ilviriu Semarumaruma” in the month of November every year has that this government is run by a ‘Ring of Thieves’ that is bleeding the country’s coffers dry and embezzling billions of rupees in kickbacks while thousands of rural schools around the island lack basic toilet facilities and citizens are killing themselves unable to repay predatory loans. One pertinent question to ask him before proceeding further is from where he got funds to buy the alleged house and property in Ireland where property prices are reported to be very high? *

The traditional Red Shirt is no more – perhaps left in Ireland

As he has suddenly fallen from an alien planet and was not in this country from 2015 to 2020, he has said that the People in this country are starving. There are invalids unable to afford their medication, farmers losing their livelihoods and homes because of the human-elephant conflict, people are paying with their lives because of predatory loan schemes. Meanwhile, the people’s wealth is being embezzled,  These were the malaise that existed in this country between 2015 toc2020 which were oblivious to this former Gonibilla as he was enjoying the comforts of Temple Trees office and was traveling in chauffer driven SUVs.

This alleged Gonibilla seems to be very angry and ferocious about the report of the Presidential Commission, led by Supreme Court Judge Upali Abeyratne, which has remended that Dissanayake and several leading opposition MPs be stripped of their civic rights for their role in an ‘anti-corruption committee’ established by former Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe to supervise action on high profile corruption cases in the 2005-2014 period.

Mocking the recommendation by the Abeyratne Commission that his civic rights should be stripped for his participation and leadership” in the Anti-Corruption Committee, Dissanayake said President Gotabaya Rajapaksa could roll up the threat and shove it.”Whether they appoint 8 or 9 commissions, throw me in any number of prisons or even kill me on the streets, he has said that he will never end his battle against this corruption. Speaking in the parliament he has admitted that on the invitation of Prime Minister Ranil Wickremasinghe he attended the Anti-Corruption Committee meetings to give information.

Continuing venting out his fury on the Abeyratne Commission he has said that based on its mandate, the Commission to investigate political victimisation could only entertain complaints from public officials, armed forces and police personnel and personnel at state institutions.

Who did they eventually entertain complaints from? The Avant-Garde Mudalali, Udyanga Weeratunga, Jaliya Wickremasuriya, Rohitha Bogollagama – how are these people, public officials?” Dissanayake charged.

Dissanayake has further stated that he took the Commission to court for investigating a complaint about a case that was an ongoing trial before the High Court. The JVP leader filed an action in the Court of Appeal against the Commission for summoning him to testify in a complaint lodged by Avant-Garde Chairman Nissanka Senadhipathi. He has said that he went to the Court of Appeal against the Commission to complain about its decision to entertain the complaint by Avant-Garde Chairman. The Commission sent an official to the Court who provided an undertaking to the Court of Appeal that until the Avant-Garde trial was concluded the Commission would not summon me for an inquiry-based on the Avant-Garde complaint,” Dissanayake revealed.

But when the Commission issued its report, Dissanayake said his name had been listed as an accused in the Avant-Garde complaint. Upholding Senadhipathi’s complaint, the Commission recommended that Dissanayake and a host of others, including Navy officers that the Avant-Garde chairman has accused of victimizing him, be prosecuted and punished under the Penal Code of Sri Lanka.

After shamefully carrying out scavenger work for almost five years thinking that Rajapaksas will never come back to power m this country the Jeppo leader has never expected that he will have to face a Presidential Commission of Inquiry (PCoI) on political victimization and he will be grilled by this PCoI about the bizarre misdeeds he and his acolytes carried out against JO MPs and their family members and their activists by imprisoning them on feigned and bogus allegations.  Some JO members had to languish in prisons for almost three months and the former Minister Johmstomn Fermamdo had to face 12 Court cases against him.  The Jeppo leader and his hooligans made much rejoicing over the misery faced by these victimized JO members. 

As it says that every action has a reaction the table has been turned on them now and this Jeppo leader seems to be extremely furious about the determinations that have been made by the PCoI.  In a fiery speech in Parliament on 23rd April 2021 the Jeppo leader has condemned what he called the highly suspect behavior and conduct of the Presidential Commission on Political Victimization, and the ludicrous manner in which it exonerated crooks and criminals associated with the President and his family

He has said that in 75 days, the Commission had investigated 136 complaints and in  78 such complaints, the Pissu Poosa Commission” (he has borrowed the term from the ultra-racist MP  C.V.Wigneswaran) recommended exonerating and acquitting some Rajapaksa family members, military officials and political associates – even those against whom criminal trials are currently underway in the courts of law.

Among those whose trials the Government is seeking to terminate on the basis of the PCoI recommendations he has said were Nalaka Godahewa and Udaya Gammanpila and the two MPs would perform the unprecedented and historic action of raising their hands to vote in support of ending their own judicial proceedings and has alleged that the Commission has gone to many lengths to accommodate complaints from Government affiliated stooges.

The Jeppo leader has further stated that although the Commission was mandated to conclude accepting complaints on March 7, 2020, seven months after this deadline, and mere weeks before the Commission handed over its report to the President, the Commission heard two complaints, submitted on October 25, 2020, by Mr. Nadesan, a Rajapaksa in law, and on October 23, 2020, Yoshitha Rajapaksa lodged a complaint with the Commission. On the 26th, 27th, and 28th of October, the cases were heard.

Dissanayake alleged that the Commission had summoned Senior State Counsel Janaka Bandara for questioning. He said that these are trials that are ongoing in our courts of law and for the first time ever a Commission has begun to investigate those trials.

Dissanayake said that the Commission’s recommendation, brought before the Parliament through the Prime Minister’s Resolution, was to end judicial proceedings in 78 cases, and of these, eight were ongoing trials in the High Court. One of the MPs in Parliament had spent an hour explaining a case in which he had been a lawyer, but all of these facts could be presented in a court of law.

Dissanayake listed the cases set for termination which were just reputation of news items and articles that appeared in the media many times earlier and in conclusion, he said that the JVP’s fight was against corruption. However, he failed to mention or deliberately avoided giving reasons why they not only remained silent but even collaborated in corruption and malpractices during the Sirisena/Ranil rule from January 2015 onwards.

Meanwhile, testifying before the PCoI on political victimization on 28th September 2020, the JVP leader Anura Kumara Dissanayake in an apparent betrayal of his cherished and beloved Ranil Haamu, stated that the statement made by former Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe about the Anti-Corruption Committee was completely untrue. Testifying before the Presidential Commission of Inquiry into Political Victimization when the complaint lodged by the former Divi Neguma Director General Kithsiri Ranawaka was heard on 28th September 2020 Anura Kumara Dissanayake stated that the evidence given by the former Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe before the Commission that the Anti-Corruption Committee was set up with the approval of the National Executive Council was false. He denied seeing the relevant cabinet paper before but added that he had noted a mentioning of a cabinet memorandum in the file of Dr. Nihal Jayatilleke and has added that no such cabinet paper was presented at any of his meetings.

He further stated that nowhere in the testimony of the former Prime Minister does it say who presented it to the National Executive Council.

He has explained that the President is the head of the National Executive Council and if it is approved by the National Executive Council, it should go through the President and no such document was submitted to the National Executive Council.

Responding to a question raised by the Chairman of the Commission, former Supreme Court Judge Upali Abeyratne, Anura Kumara Dissanayake said that he cannot read the mind of the former Prime Minister so well, no one can and he cannot say what the Prime Minister was trying to convey to the Cabinet by applying such a word with the approval of the National Executive Council” to the Cabinet Paper.

Responding to a question asked by his lawyer whether there was a suggestion to grant him membership of a committee such as the Anti-Corruption Committee or to say that he was not reluctant to be appointed to such a committee, Dissanayake said that there could be two interpretations. It could be said that the Anti-Corruption Committee was set up with the approval of the National Executive Council or that it was not me, the National Executive Council set up the Anti-Corruption Committee.”

In further response, Dissanayake said whether there was a suggestion to grant him membership of a committee such as the Anti-Corruption Committee or to say that he was not reluctant to be appointed to such a committee, he was not aware of any facts regarding his appointment as the Coordinator of the Anti-Corruption Committee Quick Response Committee and that he never represented or coordinated it.
