‘We never deported him; he could have stayed but he wanted to leave the country’-Gotabhaya Rajapaksa

by Shamindra Ferdinando

Defence Secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa yesterday said that many of those listed missing during the war could have obtained new identities courtesy foreign governments.

The recent Gunaratnam affair revealed how Australia had issued a passport (N 1016123) to the leader of the newly formed Frontline Socialist Party (FSP) under a different name in spite of knowing his real identity, the Defence Secretary said.

Asked whether he could prove complicity on the part of Australia in helping Gunaratnam to slip into the country, the Defence Secretary told The Sunday Island that the Australian High Commissioner in Colombo Robyn Mudie identified the missing Gunaratnam as Noel Mudalige, while acknowledging his Australian citizenship.

“Don’t forget the Australian HC also revealed that Gunaratnam arrived at the Bandaranaike International Airport on September 4, 2011.”

The war veteran said that foreign governments, including Australia had refused to assist Sri Lanka in investigations aimed at locating missing persons now living overseas under new identities. Thousands of Sri Lankans had received new identities, particularly in Europe, he said.

Even the identities of those arriving illegally in Australia and other countries seeking political refuge were protected, thereby denying Sri Lanka an opportunity to target organized criminal gangs responsible for sending people abroad.

External Affairs Minister, Prof. G. L. Peiris told The Sunday Island that Gunaratnam had also obtained a Sri Lankan passport under a different name, while giving yet another name in his marriage certificate. The bottom line was that Gunaratnam had used at least three other identities, Prof. Peiris said, alleging an attempt to bring the GoSL into disrepute in the wake of unsubstantiated war crimes accusations.

The Defence Secretary said that he had told the Colombo-based diplomatic community of LTTE cadres, including those tasked with suicide missions, taking refuge in new identities both here and abroad.

According to him, recent recovery of a suicide jacket at a rest house in Kataragama led to the arrest of an LTTE suicide cadre, who lived in Galle as a Muslim, while his parents had reported him missing. The Defence Secretary said that the suicide cadre, under interrogation, had admitted that he was tasked with assassinating President Mahinda Rajapaksa.

After returning to Australia, Mudalige alleged that he was handcuffed, blindfolded and physically and sexually tortured during his three day detention.

The Defence Secretary said that the police recorded Mudalige’s statement in the presence of Australian HC Mudie at the CCD headquarters, at Dematagoda. Mudalige could have made that allegation in the Australian HC’s presence, the Defence Secretary said adding that the Immigration and Emigration imposed a fine on the Australian national for overstaying his visa, though he didn’t pay the fine claiming he didn’t have money.

“In fact, we never deported him. He wanted to leave the country. He could have stayed back after paying the fine but he decided to leave the country.”

The Defence Secretary said that the FSP took almost 12 hours to report Mudalige’s disappearance, while Dimuthu Attugalle’s alleged abduction was brought to the notice of the law enforcement agencies about 24 hours later.

He pointed out that as the FSP had claimed that Dimuthu Attygalle had disappeared 8 pm on Friday (April 6) the party should explain why Mudalige was left alone at a partially built house. Any political party conscious of security wouldn’t have acted the way the FSP did, the Defence Secretary said, alleging a conspiracy to embarrass the government.

In their complaint, the missing person was identified as Premkumar Gunaratnam and there was no mention of Australian national Noel Mudalige being abducted, the Defence Secretary said.

The Defence Secretary said that it would be interesting to know at what stage the Australian HC in Colombo was informed of the alleged disappearance of Mudalige, when Australia provided the Sri Lankan a new identity and whether he would now seek another identity from Australia or some other country as his Australian identity was exposed courtesy: The Sunday Island

    what an idiot is this man a ex-data entery operator cum Defence secretary.
    is he try to justify the 40,000 genocide in the last few days of the war got foreign passpots from the land of no-return.

    As in a western countries its not a big issue for someone to change names as you can see how a certain Albert Perera went onto become W.D Amaradeva the maestero we know of on Sri Lanka.

    This person was kidnapped by the infamouse white van gang operated by the direct supervision from the defence secretary itself and try to find some excuses to cover up the stupidity.

  2. monkey says:

    I am against any abductions whoever is committing them.

  3. helaya says:

    There was a huge publiciy this week for a Canadian born transgender (born as Walter and now called Jenna) to compete in the Miss Universe contest and the organizers had to accept after protests from rights group.

    If this Gota know about this – probably will tell that most of the Tamils allegedly dissapeared is indeed done homone treatment and got different genders after migrated in to Canada.

    It looks like Gota is fiercely competing with Merv the perv and Google-Wansa to win the title of palae jester.

  4. Tvoice says:

    Simly the man of white vans, if any body intrested in franchise, contact Gotha. Tried and tested method with 100% gauranty.

  5. Rohan says:

    There is a saying in Tamil, “Although I fell, my moustache didn’t hit the dirt”. Gota must be living in the Dilusion land.

    Changing names in not a major issue in Australia. People do change their names for various reasons. It costs less than $200 (http://www.bdm.nsw.gov.au/OurFees-Turnaround.htm). Kumar changed his name for whatever reason. The Australian Government was comfortable with that, and they issues a passport in that name.

    “Defence Secretary told The Sunday Island that the Australian High Commissioner in Colombo Robyn Mudie identified the missing Gunaratnam as Noel Mudalige, while acknowledging his Australian citizenship.”
    “Don’t forget the Australian HC also revealed that Gunaratnam arrived at the Bandaranaike International Airport on September 4, 2011.”

    Nothing out of ordinary! The official name, in Australia’s view, is Noel Mudalige. Robyn Mudie did the right thing.

    His Excellency Gotabhaya made a claim earlier, expressing surpise, as to how Robyn Mudie had the original passport for Noel Mudalige to travel back to Australia.

    But, Frontline Socialist Party member Waruna Rajapakse told Australian Broadcasting Corporation that he handed the Australian’s passport to the Australian High Commission in Colombo. (http://www.abc.net.au/am/content/2012/s3473663.htm)

    By the way, did anyone ask Gotabhaya Rajapakse yet about Karuna’s departure from Colombo with an assumed name and a special passport? Karuna revealed in UK that Gota made every arrangement for him to get a passport, to leave the country, and to meet a lot of people in Europe.

    According to a Transcurrent report, “According to Karuna, he met with Defence Secretary, Rajapakse and asked him to facilitate a trip to England for him, in order to visit his family. Rajapakse had allegedly agreed to take care of all arrangements, and from that point Karuna states he was at ease…. On August 30, 2007 the Department of Immigration and Emigration issued a diplomatic passport number D1944260 in the name of Kokila Dushmantha Gunawardena whose occupation on the passport was given as Director General of Wildlife Conservation. The photograph on the passport was that of Karuna Amman. The Department of Immigration, it is pertinent to note, comes under the Ministry of Defence, Public Security, Law and Order of which Gotabaya Rajapakse is Secretary and President Rajapakse the Minister.”

    Was australian games in sri lanka exposed ??

    KG @ Noel Mudalige, husband of Mrs. Dakson, well next time let google find out the full repotoire of names.

  7. Nagul says:

    Okay GR, who gave a false name and false passport to Karuna to go to UK?

  8. I'm Eelam says:

    Sorry, I have no money paying for overstaying of foreign nationals.
    I’m Eelam

  9. cuttige says:

    This type of talk will eventually lead to more suspicion. It is like the folk story ‘puhul hora karen dane’.

  10. John Wayne says:

    And all the disappeared persons have also acquired fake identities including- Pradeep Ekneligoda, Kurgan etc,
    Or perhaps they never existed in the first place but were mere phantoms..
    The ghosts are troubling Macbeth.. GR the shark watcher sees phantoms and the disappeared roming around hence the need for so much public religion and Buddhist visuals..
    Gotabaya has lost the plot… as have his brothers who are drunk on power and corruption!

  11. Kurukkalabhaya says:

    So what he trying to say is Gunaratnam was warmissing from vanni like 40,000 he has already killed? He want to abduct,torture and kill more and more….

    http://www.dailymirror.lk/news/17937-man-eating-croc-nabbed.html

    But people in srilanka hope one day this Man abducting corocodile will be captured like above.

  12. John Wayne says:

    As Amanpur said the task of the journalist is to “speak truth to power” not spread the regime’s lies without any analysis in this truly brainless fashion!

    And how was she in Iraq?…………DBSJ

  13. Safa says:

    This would be a comedy of errors if not for the seriousness of the situation. The Defence Secretary, External Affairs Ministry and Media Spokespeople making various contradictory statements regarding this incident. It appears there is only one truth and lies can be many and varied.

  14. Susil Prema says:

    What is this fool talking about? Had this clerk been arrested and questioned by an ordinary police officer he would have definitely been revealed to be telling lies to cover up his crime. What he utters is so irrelevant and outside the question. What happened really is that KG and the girl were abducted by Gota’s killers but they could not proceed with full fledged torture, info revelation and ultimate acid bath disposal due to intervention by Australian Government! How on earth someone disappeared reemerges after a foreign country inquires about it from the government if that abduction was carried by some other party not related to the government? If the disappearance was done by themselves hoping greater publicity to their cause then they would not surface like this to end the whole scenario like this but rather would continue to be in underground which would definitely garner greater publicity, commotion, foreign intervention and concerns. So in this particular case Gota has amply proved that he and the government are behind these abductions and killings! So be ready for the things to come in your way!

  15. dilshanF says:

    Anybody with common sense can see what the defence sec is stating.
    This guy was here for over 5 months and overstayed in Sri Lanka. Now tell me what would Australians do if a non national overstayed?
    Next the Aussie govt knowingly gave him a flase passport to enter Sri Lanka – so is HE a Aussie agent?

    As far as I can see this kind of vermin needs to be taken out to protect the majority in this beautiful land of ours.

    Sorry DBSJ but this story stinks.

    This is not just a case of a guy vanishing.

  16. Ramanan says:

    dilshanF writes: “Anybody with common sense can see what the defence sec is stating”

    I think you mean everyone without common sense

    “Now tell me what would Australians do if a non national overstayed?”

    Probably not trying to execute such persons after successfully abducting them in broad daylight in a white van and denying their existence until shown conclusively otherwise. This partially explains why Gold Coast is hosting Commonwealth Games and not Hambantota.

    “Next the Aussie govt knowingly gave him a flase passport to enter Sri Lanka”

    Your master Gota is the expert in forged passports after having one arranged for Prabhakaran’s former bodyguard in 2007. And as Rohan eloquently wrote: it is not capital offence or particularly expensive to change one’s name legally in Australia.

    “As far as I can see this kind of vermin needs to be taken out to protect the majority in this beautiful land of ours”

    This was how Prabhakaran’s supporters rationalised their leader bumping off a range of different personalities over the years. We hope dilshan’s leader faces similar just desserts for following such a path.

  17. Chinthaka says:

    KG and his secret politics are definite concerns to any legitimate government. He wasn’t kidnapped to be killed, but to embarrass, expose and make the FSP convention unsuccessful while Dimuthu’s abduction was to get information of its foreign connections.

    Has anyone heard of KG’s role in JVP during 1988-89? (Pallekelle Army camp attack, Kantale and Trico IPKF trucks attacks and Kallar Army camp attack). He being an Australian citizen it is really difficult to get him punished for those crimes he was involved as there can be little or no evidence. So govt’s motive was to expose this KG to the whole country and his drama behind the screen while getting some information first hand from them.

    We have to be glad of the fact that Govt intelligence network still work v sharp on these matters and their ability to locate criminal elements.

  18. Native Vedda says:

    Chinthaka

    Kidnapping itself is a crime. Legitimate government has to comply with rule of law and should not behave like gunslingers of the wild west. While in the USA Gota might have watched too much western movies to adapt the ways of the cowboys.

    Whilst you are making yourself a fool what is your compulsion to defend all forms of state terrorism?

    You say:

    “He being an Australian citizen it is really difficult to get him punished for those crimes he was involved as there can be little or no evidence. ”

    Should the USA decides at a later date that US citizen Gota to be investigated for his part in war crimes would Sri Lanka have him abducted and sent him to USA?

    You say:

    “We have to be glad of the fact that Govt intelligence network still work v sharp on these matters and their ability to locate criminal elements.”

    The criminal elements are in the government, its institutions, its party and in the armed forces. Why does not Government intelligence network use their intelligence to crack down on them?

  19. DilshanF says:

    Ramanan, Stick to the point.
    Takes years to get an Aussie Visa.
    now we have an Aussie citizen overstaying visa.
    Aussie provided him with a false Passport.
    With the cat out of the bag Aussie diplomut then brings the passport when the ‘Missing’ guy says passport missing.
    So it means that this guy met the Aussie Diplomut and gave the passport for safekeeping.
    Aussies are not as bringht as KGB or MI5.
    Should stick to rearing kangaroos and not rearing secret agents !
    Gota sending Karuna has got nothing to do with this.
    I dont have any other leader other than God almighty and peace in this land.
    If Gota and MR has to be what they are to keep peace in this land so be it.

  20. Chinthaka says:

    Native Vedda,

    - If USA can invade Pakistan’s territory and kill a terrorist leader who is a security threat them, why SL cannot kidnap a perceived security threat right in their land from a different country and question him before release (not kill). Why do you become a fool to imagine terrorists need to have all the freedom whilst their victims (SL people at last) are deprived of their freedom by these terrorist elements time to time?
    - Gota is not a US Citizen, but a Green card holder which is equivalent to Permanent Resident, I guess. If he’s a US Citizen still he must be a SL citizen too under duel category. When did you learn to compare a govt officer authorized to defend its citizens from terrorists, with a terrorist suspect who ran away to a different country to escape prosecution?
    - You ask that 3rd question from MI5, CIA and Mosad which your masters seem to have appointed?

  21. Rishad says:

    What is he thinking? for heavens sake be rational!!
    Unless this Son of a gun(yo know what i mean) is ripped off from that post, we Srilankans want get ANY prestige(at least respect) in the world stage. With his foul mouth and kinky mind set he will do NO good for our nation.
    Unless this Son of a gun is ripped off from that post, I don’t think any Tamil speaking individual in this country will have faith in our President Mahinda Rajapakshe.

    Chinthaka
    keep talking about USA invading Pakistan, India invading Uzbekistan…. get off from you merry go round and REALIZE the real situation.
    Eradication is over now. It is the time for the primordial prevention from another situation and that should not be and that is not done by suppressing media and minorities.
    13th amendment gone with the wind now LLRC, who cares!!!
    From Chandrika to Sangakkara most of our people has realized, only few people like you still lagging BEHIND, common man get a move on for the greater good.

    quote wiki
    ” In the editorial titled A brother out of control (August 16, 2011), The Hindu raised the observation, “President Rajapaksa would be well advised to distance himself swiftly from his brother’s stream-of-consciousness on sensitive issues that are not his business. This includes an outrageous comment that because a Tamil woman, an “LTTE cadre” who was a British national, interviewed in the Channel 4 documentary was “so attractive” but had been neither raped nor killed by Sri Lankan soldiers, the allegation of sexual assault by soldiers could not be true. For this statement alone, Mr. Gotabaya Rajapaksa must be taken to task.” “

    Chinthaka says:

    So you want the USA to drive SL’s foreign and domestic policies as you see fit to follow USA’s pattern of behaviour.

    It is a good argument for self destruction.

    You say:

    “Why do you become a fool to imagine terrorists need to have all the freedom whilst their victims(SL people at last) are deprived of their freedom by these terrorist elements time to time? ”

    I am not a fool but bit thick.

    I hate to agree with you. However, Terrorism is not the sole property of non state actors. The state sponsored terrorism is widely reported and documented in Sri Lanka. If you care to speak to the victims of SL’s state sponsored terrorism you will see the difference. Have you had the misfortune to meet and talk to the victims of state sponsored terrorism? I have had the misfortune to meet the victims of JVP terrorism and LTTE terrorism as well as the state’s sponsored terrorism.

    I find no difference in terrorism of non state actors and of the state, ultimately the suffering and pain of the victims matters more than who perpetrated it.

    You don’t expect the victims to say they prefer one type of terrorism to the other.

    Whether

  23. Chinthaka says:

    Native Vedda,

    I was not saying SL procedures should be guided by USA’s. I just Brought that up to say this is happening everywhere in terms of eliminating terrorism, so there’s nothing special here for you to make a big fuss about.

    I have seen all terrorists’ victims. When I say terrorists, government does not include as it’s the party re-acting to the actions of terrorism perpetrated on its people. If at all you don’t terrorize a part or the whole country of people you don’t get hit by so-called state terrorism. Who do react and defend under so-called state terrorism? It is our brother, fathers, uncles too whose job is to defend the democratically elected government and its people.

    You don’t understand that simple theory. Don’t terrorize the society, so you won’t see the victims of so-called state terrorism for sure that I can guarantee you.

    While defending terrorism we killed 17 ACF workers, 5 Students in trinco, Semmani Masacre, 40K civilians in 2009,……..
    and we have killed thousands of tamils in pre war time 1950 – 1980 to save our democracy

  25. Chinthaka says:

    Jay,
    That’s what happen when terrorists start a war.. Terrorists have the cover under civilians, so civilians get hit as a result. Don’t forget the fact that even state armies encountering terrorism is consist of human beings.. They also work under pressures, fears and revenge. They also have families to go.. They’re not paid enough to get killed like cats and dogs… Some of you mentioned are just allegations.. I never believe 40k civilians killed in the final battle.. If you have figures then tell us how many of them were in Makkal padai, Thunai padai and Grama Padai… How many of them were celebrated as Mahaweer and obliged to follow Thambi, wherever he goes..?? How many of were mainstream cadres clad in civilian dress.. How many of were from tiger intelligence..??

    Simple advice: Don’t try to change regimes democratically elected or create regimes with the help of arms.. You won’t see any re-action…

    If govt forces mistakenly/purposefully killed any civilians, LTTE killed too many purposefully. So, the equation is considered balanced by the govt though it’s unfavourable for majority sinhalese. But nobody in south didn’t ask the justice for those killed in Colombo, buses, trains and elsewhere. Remember… they didn’t ask for war.. they just defended the war fallen on them.

  26. Native Vedda says:

    Chinthaka says:

    “If govt forces mistakenly/purposefully killed any civilians, LTTE killed too many purposefully. So, the equation is considered balanced by the govt though it’s unfavourable for majority sinhalese.”

    So the majority stupid Sinhalese think the state should have killed all the Tamils and what the state managed to kill is far less than what the majority Sinhalese wanted.

    Native Vedda,

    “So the majority stupid Sinhalese think the state should have killed all the Tamils and what the state managed to kill is far less than what the majority Sinhalese wanted”.
    ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

    You seem to be v busy twisting all I’m saying.. Go ahead mate.. You won’t get a break from me… :-)

    My answer for you is No. But, Sinhalese with no intention for a war and ethnic division have paid a higher price than Tamils at the hands of LTTE. Of course the Tamils too paid their price, but that was mainly at the hands of their own chosen saviour – LTTE, than govt forces. So, now you understand who suffered ‘with choice’ and who suffered ‘without choice’, don’t you..?? So, you tell me now who deserved the worse punishment..??

    I have no problem with Tamils mate, until you stop mourning and groaning about Sinhalese and Government forces which fought for all Sinhalese/Muslim/Tamil “Innocent” peoples’ rights. I hope you know the definition of “Innocent” better than me.

  28. Native Vedda says:

    Chinthaka says:

    “I have no problem with Tamils mate”

    You don’t deserve to be my mate as you don’t seem to grasp the basic humanity. You don’t deserve to be a stupid Sinhalese either as you haven’t realised that the stupid innocent Sinhalese too immensely suffered in the hands of your armed forces and their politicians.

    You say:

    “Sinhalese and Government forces which fought for all Sinhalese/Muslim/Tamil “Innocent” peoples’ rights.”

    Come on you cannot be serious.

    You say:

    “My answer for you is No. But, Sinhalese with no intention for a war and ethnic division have paid a higher price than Tamils at the hands of LTTE. Of course the Tamils too paid their price”

    Is there any comparative study on who suffered more than the other? It would be an interesting subject. I never heard of it and will never hear of it.

    However could you cite the source of your sweeping comment.

  29. Jay says:

    Chinthaka

    Violence breeds violence, you are in agreement, then who started killing tamils in 1950′s, however i am not a psychophant to go on justify LTTE that Sinhalese killed thousands of Tamils for their democratic dissent since the independence then LTTE carried brutal attacks on Sinhalese, whether it is a state or non state doesn’t have any right to kill but in a war there are damages, the collateral damages are understandable and must be explained. Sri lankan case is very different from Afghanistan and Iraq because A section of Sinhalese had the “green Signal” from the government to go on with the Killing field well before the war started that is 1950′s, 1960′s, 1970′s and after 1980′s killing continued under the pre text of “fight against terrorism or as you say defending democracy or re acting to terrorism” now we see some ministers in the government started threatening tamils, this is the process called a “Structural violence”, there is a goal and motive behind it, I hope we won’t see a re play of 1983 pogrom

  30. Chinthaka says:

    Native Vedda,
    There’s no point of explaining things for you as you’re just twisting my words and exercising selective amnesia taking only a part of what I said.. Re-read the full para.

    “My answer for you is No. But, Sinhalese with no intention for a war and ethnic division have paid a higher price than Tamils at the hands of LTTE. Of course the Tamils too paid their price, but that was mainly at the hands of their own chosen saviour – LTTE, than govt forces. So, now you understand who suffered ‘with choice’ and who suffered ‘without choice’, don’t you..?? So, you tell me now who deserved the worse punishment..??”

    Jay,
    I know injustices happened to Tamils at the hands of organised Sinhalese mobs (mainly by politicians with own interests), but tell me what sort of numbers are we speaking here in terms of lives lost? Ethnic riots happened everywhere in the world, so the fine example is India where it happened in several times of large scale than SL experienced.

    But we didn’t see India giving birth to the most ruthless terrorist organisation that MADE ALL PROBLEMS WORST EVER AS IF THEY HARDLY CAN BE RESOLVED MUTUALLY AGAIN. So, that’s the situation with what LTTE did to south in retaliation. LTTE never thought of a country that Sinhalese and Tamils can ever live peacefully, so they did maximum damage that will last for a long time in Sinhalese minds too. Do you think that they have all been erased just after the war? LTTE created grievances for Sinhalese as well by keeping too much trust on their killing machine, so don’t think it’s only your turn to point finger at South once the war was ended, thanks to SL’s valiant armed forces. What sinhalese lost in the means of govt workers, soldiers, political leaders and normal civilians including those who were in so-called border villages are a huge number that will undoubtedly form a 50% of total lives lost in the war. Who is going to talk for their rights and who will bring their loved ones back?

    Therefore, what you should be doing at this stage is not trying to get what VP failed to get by killing tens of thousands. It is the time for peace and reconciliation. It is the time for everyone to get their basic life styles established first, before demanding for alien political rights. If you guys ever loved your counterparts living in war ravaged Sri Lanka, you wouldn’t have been trying to promote what Tamil-LTTE diaspora is trying to do today. They’re only making remaining part of Tamils feel sick of living in Sri Lanka.

  31. Jay says:

    Thank god you took the case of Indian riots rather than ruwanda where estimated 1,000,000 people killed in 100 days, Hutu groups killed tutsis out hatred and ethnic rivalry world declared it was a genocide, Today Sri lanka has been asked for the accountability vis a vis the war against LTTE, it is widely believed possibly upto 40K people could have been killed. In Srebrenica 8000 bosnians were massacred by Serbians and that too was declared as Genocide.

    Unlike Sinhalese Tamils in Srilanka a small community any number of deaths is big number for them they have fears of re plays of 1983 pogroms, presence of large number of forces in north and east and open threats by ministers, continued impunity for white vans is all indication that it won’t take even 100 days, Isn’t it? Yes lot of things should be done urgently all measures should be taken to restore life of war victims, 3 years now only a little progress has been made however the survival of Tamils is depend on their political rights that is the paramount criteria for reconciliation, peace doesn’t come with roads and bridges that has to evolve within people and it wont under the boots, BTW i am not a lover of LTTE or it’s Ideology

  32. Native Vedda says:

    Chinthaka says:

    “My answer for you is No. But, Sinhalese with no intention for a war and ethnic division have paid a higher price than Tamils at the hands of LTTE.”

    So how did the Tamil speaking people were forced to suffer due to intermittent riots even though there was no LTTE threat before?

    Has anyone spent time to compare the price paid by Tamil, Muslims, Sinhalese and others adjusted for inflation? If so please cite me the study and let have the detail analysis and the conclusion reached by the studies.

    Please let me have quantified suffering of Tamil, Sinhalese, Muslims and others in the hands of

    Tamils, LTTE and other Tamil militant groups

    Muslims, Muslim home guards and others

    Sinhalese, armed forces, paramilitaries, thugs, JVP, politicians of all parties, and others

    You can take your own time and come back with to us with your rational response, from defining the concepts, explaining the methodology, survey, questionnaire……….conclusion, etc.

    Could you let us know how long do you need to complete such a huge task.

  33. Chinthaka says:

    Native Vedda,

    You need scholarly articles written by doctors, professors to tell you about what exactly happened in Sri Lanka.. But I just lived their and personally experienced the life style day to day, seeing the damage done to life and property.

  34. Native Vedda says:

    Chinthaka says:

    That is your opinion not independently verified facts nor it is unbiased as Sinhalese have a tinted world view.

    Have you met each and every citizen of the island and asked them how much they had suffered under various state and non state actors?

    Please don’t sell us your opinion as hard facts.

    If I were you I would have kept your stupid opinion to myself.

    Brain should sit inside your head. Please make sure you don’t sit on your brain.
