Defence secretary to reveal the truth behind the Mulleriyawa incident
Defence secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa vehemently rejects the accusations made by the opposition. He points out that the opposition is always engaged in propagating false propaganda about the degradation of peace and law in the country. Now the country is experiencing a rapid economic growth. The crimes that prevailed during the war period have been gradually decreasing after 2007. He said that the police have focussed special attention on preventing crimes. Participating in a discussion with the ITN, defence secretary further said that some elements who are unable to bear the victory of local government elections by the government, are engaged in tarnishing the image of the President and himself. He further said that the killing of Baratha Lakshman Premachandra is an adverse outcome of the preferential vote system and it is not fair to put the blame on the government regarding this incident.
The defence secretary said he is always dedicated to safeguard the security and the peace in the country. The Defence ministry is ready to counter false propaganda carried out by pro-LTTE in overseas. There will be no room for LTTE to raise its head again in the country. He sternly rejected the accusations made against him that he is appearing on behalf of parliamentarian Duminda Silva.
The defence secretary rejecting all accusations made against him regarding the killing said, no request has ever been presented to him or to the president to provide security to Mr. Bharatha Laxman Premachandra. Late Mr. Premachandra had functioned as an advisor to the president at the president’s office. He was given the necessary security and the required vehicles while engaging in duties in this post. The defence secretary also vehemently rejected charges that he provided more security to parliamentarian Duminda Silva. Mr. Silva was given security appropriate for a parliamentarian. There were 12 security officers and 3 police officials in the province have provided security to this parliamentarian. Only 2 automated weapons were provided for him. Mr. Rajapaksa reiterated that none of the vehicles of the ministry was provided to Mr. Duminda Silva.
The defence secretary added that he would not hesitate to impose proper punishments to the offenders of the Mulleriyawa incident and that the truth behind this incident will be revealed shortly.

I fear an abuse of power. Kudu-D is the darling of GR and MR. He has got away before with serious crimes such as, raping a 13 yr old girl, other rapes and sexual assault of women, intimidation and physical assault etc through his private army of thugs and drug peddlars. He is all mouth and bravado when accompanied by his gang of mobsters, armed to the teeth. No charges will be brought against him in this instance also. He will get away scot-free. All evidence will be destroyed and witnesses will be silenced permanently. Police, Attorney General and even judges will be silenced. I lament for Motherlanka and our people. There are no decent statesmen to lead our country. The corruption in SL stinks to high heaven! God help us!
Don’t dream a help of ‘gods myth’…! If you’ve no money then you’ve to find it & no god will give you it. So, While doing all by the self in life, how these people come to believe a help of who they never seen or see..? What a blindness is this..?
YOU ARE ON THE RIGHT TRACK.DOGS WILL BARK,
WOLVES WILL ATTACK BUT THE THE GOOD ADMINSTRATOR
HAS TO MOVE ON CORRUPTION AND ANTI SOCIAL ACTIVITIES
ARE BARGAINED IN THE NAME OF DEVELOPMENT.THIS TREND
MUST BE ARRESTED FOR THE SAKE OUR FUTURE GENARATION.
WITH YOUR VAST AND CLEAN MILITARY EXPERIENCE, YOU
ARE THE MAN FOR THE OCCASION.
MR and GR must come clean by ordering the police to arrest and charge all criminals involved with Bharatha assassination, without hesitation or consideration of status. Hence, kudu-D must be placed under arrest and questioned under caution, with a magistate’s warrant and his lawyer present, with hospital permission, if he is fit to be questioned. A policeman must always be on duty beside his hospital room as Kudu-D is under arrest. The doctor must be ordered by court to report to the police as soon as he is fit to be questioned. If the doctor/hospital authorities fail to do so, they have to be warned of aiding and abetting an alleged criminal and breach of court order.
I am astounded. Why should the President and the highest ranking official in the Defence Ministry, “order” the Police to do the work entrusted ti them by the SL taxpayers?
When people break the law in the streets, the protectros of the law, the Police Force, who are paid by the taxpayer, should take action in accordance with their training and oath of office.
On a lighter note, if MR and GR order the arrest of “criminals”, the Police will have to arrest these two guys who are the biggest criminals in the country. It is a “catch 22” !!!!!!!
“Absolute power corrupts absolutely”.
This is the unfortunate truth. It has been proven time and again in many countries, in the past, in SL as well. Police as well as the judiciary are frightened to act against the leaders of a country, even if they break the law. Zimbabwe is one such country.
That is why it is important we have general elections every 5 years to limit the power of the leaders and the previous leaders who were corrupt could be brought to justice if they had broken the law.
In Zimbabwe even the elections are rigged and the opposition key figures are assassinated.
It is important therefore the spiritual leaders of a country speak out boldly against corruption, abuse of power and spiritual decadence. They should act as the conscience of a nation.
