Deputy Minister Mervyn Silva tied a samurdhi officer to a mango tree a short while ago over his failure to attend a dengue prevention programme in Kelaniya last week.

The official was however later released while two other women and a man were also reprimanded by the Deputy Minister over their failure to attend the same programme.

The Deputy Minister also severely warned one of the lady officers after she raised her strong objections in seeing the male samurdhi officer being tied to a tree.

The Deputy Minister warned her to be quiet if not suffer a similar fate.

Deputy Minister Silva however said that that the media report that a child in his electorate had died due to dengue was untrue because the child was not from his electorate. The man who was tied to the tree however said he could not attend the event as his child was ill the day the programme was conducted.  

The event took place amidst the presence of journalists who were invited by the Deputy Minister to witness the incident. 
 

Deputy Minister Silva further stated that this was only the first warning to the officials and further action would be taken if incidents of this nature continued.

 

The three officials who pleaded their innocence claiming that they did attend the prevention programme were told by the Minister to prove their presence.

Furthermore he said that if people had misled the Minister by giving false information about their absence, those people would be produced in front of the three officials so that they could be slapped. (Daily Mirror online)

    Yes this is also an embarresment for all humanity. Siribiris, I am proud of Sri Lankans like you who still can feel the pain of someone you have never known.

    DHA Tuesday, 03 August 2010 10:20 AM

    Move may be good but then again the victim has the right to go to human rights....cos no law permits this type of behavior...!!!

    Saranga Tuesday, 03 August 2010 01:15 PM

    Dont blame Gov, people in Kelaniya elected him and public officials in sri lanka slack and does half of the job anyway!

    DON Tuesday, 03 August 2010 04:52 PM

    Yes siribiris. You are right. What would happen if this man commits suicide now ???

    Tharaka Chanaka Tuesday, 03 August 2010 10:22 AM

    I think someone will tie him up on a "temple tree" soon

    SRI LANKAN Tuesday, 03 August 2010 10:24 AM

    We appoint / elect Members to the Parliament to make the law not to appply the law. Police & Juduciary is there for that purpose.

    How many days they did the meet during the last 1 & 1/2 Years. Certain months only once.

    Amarais Tuesday, 03 August 2010 04:56 PM

    This is part I of a series. The rest of the story will be unfold in parts. It is just an act. Not worth commenting on!

    God save Sri Lanka.

    DON Tuesday, 03 August 2010 04:56 PM

    One of the most disgusting things I have ever seen for my over 50 years of life. I felt like spitting at the screen of my PC

    DON Tuesday, 03 August 2010 04:59 PM

    rohan ,who had made the officials lathargic ?? None other than the ministers.

    pusa Tuesday, 03 August 2010 01:26 PM

    civilized? Sri Lanka?

    Ibnu Batuta Tuesday, 03 August 2010 05:08 PM

    Out of 144 Gov. MPs only 119 were present today in the parliament to pass the Emergency. Rest be careful. Merv is waiting with the rope.

    siva Tuesday, 03 August 2010 01:33 PM

    even prabaharan did not humiliate the sinhalese like this

    Sunil Tillakaratne Tuesday, 03 August 2010 10:33 AM

    You can get a life in the "Comedy country."

    Ara Tuesday, 03 August 2010 10:34 AM

    What an idiot you are. This is the 21st century and we are supposed to be living in a civilised world!

    DON Tuesday, 03 August 2010 05:13 PM

    DHA What human right. ....Then he will loose right to live

    Dr Sulaiman Tuesday, 03 August 2010 10:35 AM

    Anyway, this is not a way to take action against any official and he should be dealth with in court of law and this mistister takes law into his hand and he is very bad politicain and should not be eleceted once again and He should go home now and if it is in western countries he will be charged under criminal act and what this civil servant did was within his own right and he has right to not to attend if his child is sick and this misnister going to harm public relationship soon and president should take action agaisnt to him and Doctors and health officials with public should speak against this injustice.

    garawi Wednesday, 04 August 2010 07:11 AM

    Mervyn is meddling in matters not under his ministry! He has no right to take such action whatsowver. This is demeaning and a dehumanizing.You only tie animals to trees. Whether the officer has a valid explanation of not Marvyn has no right to interfere in this. There should be health police to handle matters related to health. In the absence Mervyn has the right to file a case against him. But to infringe human rights. The man tied has the right to file a case about his human rights violation. I hope somebody will take action about this!

    steve Tuesday, 03 August 2010 10:36 AM

    Never ending episodes of comedy from the law makers of Sri Lanka.

    rav Tuesday, 03 August 2010 01:46 PM

    The whole world is laughing. First from Modawans, then moda silva.
    MR is silent, where is GL.
    Come on SLs, wake up, Tie this idiot to a bus and drive away.

    cp Tuesday, 03 August 2010 05:23 PM

    What is the moral right that Mervyn has to punish this man?

    Nan Tuesday, 03 August 2010 01:49 PM

    hahaha..i see nothing wrong with this incident. because, it will get the job done..and at the same time, entertain the whole country. This just made my day..way to go merv!

    Lak Tuesday, 03 August 2010 10:41 AM

    This is clearly human right violation.............Bad lesson .......

    Mohamed Shafraz Tuesday, 03 August 2010 10:42 AM

    I too fan of Mervyn and Love his comedy

    Gayal Tuesday, 03 August 2010 05:33 PM

    I appreciate what Mervin did here - for reminding officials of their roles and responsibilities. Especially not be indebted to the public for the money they take home. A good drama, with a moral, from the minister. Well done!

    bash Tuesday, 03 August 2010 10:45 AM

    SRI LANKA land like no other

    Rajiv Tuesday, 03 August 2010 01:58 PM

    'For evil to succeed it's enough for good men to be silent' . Clowns like Mervin were there in every society at all times. But it's the cowardice of the onlookers that perturbs me most

    Premalal Perera Tuesday, 03 August 2010 01:58 PM

    Taking revenge from public officer's without warning them.

    WHo is responsible fro this crime, no one else other than head of the state.
    You are right in western world , goverment must resign for crime of this similar nature.

    dinesh Tuesday, 03 August 2010 02:10 PM

    my advice to the person to file the FR case against mervin

    badtnc Tuesday, 03 August 2010 10:55 AM

    this is the law, what a shame,., seems like MR is not the leader of this country..

    Boom Boom Tuesday, 03 August 2010 10:55 AM

    srilankan in uk Tuesday, 03 August 2010 02:15 PM

    punchi banda Tuesday, 03 August 2010 02:16 PM

    wow..great job Sri Lanka voting idiots to 'lead' you.

    rohan Tuesday, 03 August 2010 10:57 AM

    What ever the readers comments it's a Very good action minister as other lethargic officers will learn a lession.

    punchi banda Tuesday, 03 August 2010 02:20 PM

    I am sure you can be his "Vice" minister.

    Nadarajah Sethurupan Tuesday, 03 August 2010 10:58 AM

    i am very proud about you Sir, This is a very good lession to any officer who get salary from government and fail to do their duty.

    End of Democracy, rule of Law ..
    Those who support such "out of law
    " acts dont know the danger of it..!

    Kithsiri Tuesday, 03 August 2010 11:04 AM

    The minister has done an illegal act with enough witness to be prosecuted.

    mohammed Tuesday, 03 August 2010 02:32 PM

    Good Lesson Dr. Mervin, its good lesson for other government servants to see if they continue to ignore public thanks sir

    lalith ananda Tuesday, 03 August 2010 02:40 PM

    Is this democracy? Even the police is witness to a crime. What has Rajapaksha to say about this?

    Roshan Tuesday, 03 August 2010 11:09 AM

    Funny that one guy tells that this should be recorded and shown in CNN, BBC to show what kind of people are there in SL ? we'll talk about spitting looking upwards.. Pathetic people.

    Nilma Tuesday, 03 August 2010 02:49 PM

    Why he did not tie both Nimal Siripala and Mithreepala Sirirsena to the other tree?

    Geronimo Tuesday, 03 August 2010 02:52 PM

    How can you? There were cops protecting him with T56's to boot. He could simply have beheaded the guy for that matter and the cops would not have lifted a finger. Oh what a country!!!

    Geronimo Tuesday, 03 August 2010 02:55 PM

    You may have a point there, Yohan. What with Wimal stealing the limelight these past few weeks, Merve has been pushed to the back burner. So this play could have been his comeback cameo!!!

    Neighbour Tuesday, 03 August 2010 02:56 PM

    OMG ! This is like a commedy film !

    Geronimo Tuesday, 03 August 2010 02:57 PM

    But he's not bothered what his pet poodle does as long as the mutt is happy and having a good time!!

    Subramaniam Masilama Tuesday, 03 August 2010 03:00 PM

    The right of the might? or simple ignorance.

    SW Tuesday, 03 August 2010 11:18 AM

    This is cowboy justice. Mervyn wants to make Kelaniya his serfdom.

    Lanka Kumudu Tuesday, 03 August 2010 08:02 PM

    Well done! Let these government officers know that, at least, one person will take action! Make them respect the people they are supposed to 'serve'!

    Mahin Tuesday, 03 August 2010 03:04 PM

    The man is a disgrace to Sri Lanka

    Siribiris Tuesday, 03 August 2010 11:22 AM

    This innocent person could be a Beloved son, Beloved Husbend, Beloved Father of kid(s) ..... what about the dignity of this individual????? this could be a huge mental embarresment not only 4 this person but also to the entire family.....

    I am NOO more proud to be a Sri lankan....

    leena Tuesday, 03 August 2010 11:25 AM

    A typical Sri lankan way of thinking. You are the best example for the product of Sri Lankan Education System. Nothing more to say!

    shukry Tuesday, 03 August 2010 11:25 AM

    Mervyn’s Law: “Anything that can be done right – he will do it wrong”

    Murphy's Law: “Anything that can go wrong will go wrong".

    Tim Tuesday, 03 August 2010 11:26 AM

    Do you think this official can get justice in SL?. It will take 15 years for the case to come to an end.

    Mafa Tuesday, 03 August 2010 11:26 AM

    the law is gone to the dogs

    Saradial Tuesday, 03 August 2010 11:28 AM

    Thusi Tuesday, 03 August 2010 03:20 PM

    Who are the real culprits then?....Are the ministers who dump garbage on the roads....Should ministers go house to house and look for Dengue breeding placess??????

    Thusi Tuesday, 03 August 2010 03:22 PM

    Really .....pls go and read the comments in the previous articles.....

    nihal malli Tuesday, 03 August 2010 03:23 PM

    Sammy Tuesday, 03 August 2010 03:26 PM

    Chandiya!! He knows only primitive, stone-age ways to deal with issues. People who made him a minister should also be taken to task.

    Lankan Lion Tuesday, 03 August 2010 03:27 PM

    Good punishment. Most of our politicians and government officials deserve this

    Anura Weeratunga Tuesday, 03 August 2010 11:35 AM

    This government is going to a foolish one in the world because of few brainless politicians sponsered their activities by the government

    These Samurdhi officers are bunch of time wasters. These guys enjoy loads of benefits without giving any output to the nation.

    MahadanaMutta Tuesday, 03 August 2010 09:29 PM

    What about politicians? They too waste both time and money. We need to tie them to trees too!

    Ranjana Tuesday, 03 August 2010 09:27 AM

    This is a very high handed act, He should be charged for causing harresment, Cannot the Judiciary take actions on these acts. Why does he not tie Siripala and Sirisena to trees if that is the case, as they are the biggest culprits. Can the president of this country tolarate such acts?

    Thush Tuesday, 03 August 2010 09:28 AM

    Very good lesson..

    Kalu Sudda Tuesday, 03 August 2010 11:50 AM

    Where's the law and order in this country. How can he punish people.

    Ranjana Tuesday, 03 August 2010 09:29 AM

    He is showing his ignorance and upbriging, and the pedigree

    Haramanis Tuesday, 03 August 2010 09:30 AM

    He should file action for harassment,violation of human rights,public humiliation,& torture

    Sampath Tuesday, 03 August 2010 09:30 AM

    The minister can be charged for Public humiliation of a Gov officer.... no one has these kind of rights to punish people...

    RajasH Tuesday, 03 August 2010 09:30 AM

    not worth commenting on his antics anymore

    MagodisThuma Tuesday, 03 August 2010 09:31 AM

    Mervin is the Law !.

    janaka Tuesday, 03 August 2010 09:32 AM

    In Briton

    You can get life for false imprisonment.

    Indika Tuesday, 03 August 2010 09:34 AM

    Few hours back, most of people appreciate the action to be taken, hoping he wont do it. Once he did, same story against Mervin.

    mahesh Tuesday, 03 August 2010 12:09 PM

    Yeah, a very good lesson to all of us on state of affairs in this county. No one has the right to humiliate a human in that manner. Your comments speaks of your values as well!

    Sanga Tuesday, 03 August 2010 09:36 AM

    do something to this idiot

    Migida Tuesday, 03 August 2010 09:36 AM

    No body can go over the LAW of the land. This a humiliation. The victim may be more qualified than the minister.Whatever, the minister should be brought to the courts.

    RayGee Tuesday, 03 August 2010 12:10 PM

    A new twist to the term "Law & Order".
    I am the Law. You follow my orders!

    Yohan Tuesday, 03 August 2010 09:37 AM

    Lets not get too excited on human rights and freedom. This was OBVIOUSLY staged by the Dr himself

    Mahinda P Tuesday, 03 August 2010 12:11 PM

    The Man may be wrong. Mr President is this the way administration should work in a civilized country.
    This new law should be include to the law carriculem.

    babanis Tuesday, 03 August 2010 09:38 AM

    whoever voted for Mervin, let them get soup and dhal curry now from Mervin under the tree

    mohammed Tuesday, 03 August 2010 12:14 PM

    if the victim go to judiciary then he will loose his life. better forget the matter here on

    Anu Tuesday, 03 August 2010 09:39 AM

    Mervin, first of all you should tie Sirisena and Siripala duo...!

    david Tuesday, 03 August 2010 09:40 AM

    The politician can take the law into their hands.
    So why do we need courts, judges and other people to maintain law and order.
    Send them all home. So we will save millions of rupees for the courts and other means.
    the politician can police us all.

    Jagath Tuesday, 03 August 2010 09:40 AM

    The " Fasting Star" also should join this joker!

    Captain Tuesday, 03 August 2010 09:41 AM

    Well well well !!!

    Where are we heading as a nation?

    How can a Deputy Minister punish someone without court proceedings ? What about the court of law? Are we there yet in a Anarchy? Plenty of questions with NO answers.
    It is very strange simply why such high handed act is being toleratred. Now it is the time to throw the LAW book at Mervin.

    Mount Lavinia Tuesday, 03 August 2010 09:42 AM

    I decided to keep my mango tree in my garden. He can come here and tie up a few rogues here too!

    Jude Tuesday, 03 August 2010 12:26 PM

    Also let all the Ministers ties to trees

    Dennis Tuesday, 03 August 2010 09:49 AM

    Pradeshiya Sabha members are paid by the public, if his child was sick that should have been handled by the mother of the child. PS members are getting enough support & money from their associates & it is not an excuse for the PS member to refrain from the cleanning programme, at a time of the whole nation is in great risk. What mervin has done is a good lesson for others as well. Giving warnnings or requesting for explannation from PS Members are totally usesless as they think they are the masters of the nation. Eventhough Mervin has bad records, he done a lot for his electorate & we all must appreciate that.

    Marikar Tuesday, 03 August 2010 09:50 AM

    I hope the LAW will take Mervyn, & tie him to a tree.
    This man is a LUNATIC!

    Deepal Tuesday, 03 August 2010 09:50 AM

    Can a Minister violate the fundamental rights of a person? Yes, it seems. Mervyn is above the law! Wonder why the President tolerates this idiot.

    Mahaththaya Tuesday, 03 August 2010 04:18 PM

    Dr: Mervyn you are the only one man who can bring lazy society
    to work, Pl do the ,same thing to teachers that not teaching to students in Sri-Lanka.

    rozan Tuesday, 03 August 2010 12:29 PM

    if all errant public servants are to be punished this way we will not have enough trees to tie them

    ansar Tuesday, 03 August 2010 09:51 AM

    why cant government take action on him for doing such things to the public...why is the government sleeping on this matter>

    arasoysa Tuesday, 03 August 2010 12:31 PM

    Man go to courts. and sue this donkey. Take over all that illegally earned money and distribute them to people in Kelaniya

    koneswaransaro Tuesday, 03 August 2010 09:52 AM

    Who dare to tie Merwin at the tree when he fails to do his duty in future?

    wiki Tuesday, 03 August 2010 09:54 AM

    A Minister unbowed and unafraid.

    Srian Tuesday, 03 August 2010 12:34 PM

    I'm a fan of Mervyn, but i will never accept this.!!!

    Nikan Tuesday, 03 August 2010 09:55 AM

    I don't think most of the people appreciated it as you mention here - Only a few would actually agree with Mervyn on most things he does.

    LouVi Tuesday, 03 August 2010 04:29 PM

    This is just the begining, not the end. Anarchy rules - Power to fools!

    salman Tuesday, 03 August 2010 09:56 AM

    This is a very good lession to any officer who get salary from government and fail to do their duty. hats off to Mervin Sir

    Athula Tuesday, 03 August 2010 04:29 PM
