SF declares war on Wijeyadasa, AG

2015-12-09 11:21:17

Field Marshal Sarath Fonseka today displayed several photographs of families of the Justice Minister Wijeyadasa Rajapakshe and Avant Garde Chairman Nissanka Senadhipathi enjoying a holiday in Disneyland, California and also said they are taking measure to arrest the Attorney General as well on his retirement.

He said there was enough evidence to prove Minister Wijeyadasa Rajapaksa and Senadhipathi are close friends and that was why the Minister was always attempting to protect the Avant Garde Company.

“Earlier, too we claimed that the two are friends but the Minister made no attempt to deny these allegations. We challenge the minister to reject these photos if he can or to say that there had not been such relationship with Avant Garde Chairman,” he said.

He also said that a few, including the justice minister were attempting to protect the maritime company when a number of others who had contributed to the January 8 silent revaluation inclusive of himself, ministers Rajitha Senaratne, Patali Champika Ranawka and Arjuna Ranatunga as well as former president Chandrika Bandaranaike Kumaratunga speaking the truth on the company.

Fonseka denied having any relationship with Nissanka Senadhipathi or having accepting any money from him. “We have spoken only once via phone. We have never met. He claims that he offered Rs. 30 million to me, which is not true. If I wanted to accept money from others, I would have accepted the offer made by former president Mahind Rajapaksa to give Rs. 2,000 million and a 100 acre coconut land during the presidential election,” he said.

The pictures which were taken nine years ago show the two families with the Rajapakse and Senadipathi are seen together in limos, taking rides and having meals. (Darshana Sanjeewa)

    The My3/RW should take this seriously. If Wijeydasa Rajapksa does not step-down at least till this matter is addressed, then we are all on a very slippery path. Actually, SF should be made the Justice Minister. That is what the majority will want to see.

    He who seeks justice must have a clean hand. When the hands of the Justice Minister himself is not clean what can we expect from the judicial system of the country.

    There are so many allegations and counter allegations, we the citizens of this country are confused and demoralised. It is now up to the President and the Prime minister to step in and take decisive action even if it means the prosecution of a senior minister or ministers. Enough is definitely enough and playing games with the country must stop and stop now.

    Actually, this is a very serious matter. The entire VOTER base must insist that a full and detailed investigation be done. There is no question that WR and Senadipathy are those on the photos. These limo trips and visit to Disney is very costly. Just do a web search on tickets, limo service, hotel and food apart from the flights. Who are these people and whose money are they using !!

    SF started firing Wijedasa after he revealed the truth. If Wijedasa or Marapana said anything against Avant then SF would have worshiped both.... SF is a poisonous person. so glad that he lost both presidential and the reason election. he would have been an Idiamin II. we know how much he ill treated his wife in front of us (officers)
