Major says Malaka didn’t assault him

A A A

The lawyer of the Army Major, who was injured during a brawl at JAIC-Hilton Colombo, filed an affidavit before the Colombo Fort Magistrate today stating that Malaka Silva and Rehan Wijeratne did not assault him.

The affidavit also stated that five others, who are in the remand prison, have assaulted him and also agreed to settle the matter amicably. In his motion before Colombo Fort Magistrate Kanishka Wijeratne, counsel Dinesh D. Dodamgoda appearing for the aggrieved party informed that his client Major Chandana Pradeep Susena had decided to arrive at an amicable settlement with the consent of both parties.

According to the affidavit attested by Commissioner of Oaths R.S.A. Kottelawala, the complainant said though Malaka Silva and Rehan Wijeratne were present at the hotel, they were not involved in assaulting him and even did not aid or abet in the commission of the offence. He said some of the others who were at the hotel might have assaulted him. Cont. From page 1

The army major said the lawyers of the two parties would discuss the settlement.

The Major said that though he had alleged that his gold chain was robbed by someone at the hotel he had later found it at his residence.
Filing a motion, counsel Dodamgoda moved Court that the case be taken up tomorrow and notice be issued on the complainant party to appear in Court. Having considered the submissions, the Magistrate ordered the Court Registrar to issue notice on Major Chandana Pradeep Susena through the Commanding Officer of the Army Hospital requesting that he appears in court on September 24(Lakmal Sooriyagoda)

    I love my country but I can't bear to see and hear things like this. I would urge all journalists who are currently visiting our country to cover the world cup to give maximum attention to this case. At least this would bring some sense to the politicians that they cannot play the fool.

    I'd like to reiterate that the present government has done much good to the country, but these loose elements MUST be done away with.

    Major hit himself. Malaka was enjoying the show. That is it.

    When people see MaraWin or Maraka, they get angry and they cannot bare their rude actions and also cannot hit them(Kalu galaka oluwa gaha ganna bahane). So, major hit himself.

    This Major is a poor pawn threatened and humiliated by his superiors and the powers that be,{ if he does not whitdraw his original statement to the pollice that he was assaulted by Malaka and Rehan}.. This fool will be in real trouble now if he made a false. statement in his afidavit. The Doctor who certfied that these two thugs were sick and must be admittedto the hospital has a lot to answer too. His diagnosis should be examined by a neutral specialist. How come these thugs partying at a nightclub with drinks and women suddenly fell ill, The same ruse made by criminals when arrested and put in jail. Justice in Silly Lanka ?

    HI EVERYONE,
    THE TRUE STORY IS DIFFERENT HERE, THIS MAJOR HAS NOTHING TO DO, EXCEPT WITHDRAW THE CASE AS HIS SENIOR OFFICERS ARE RELUCTANT TO SUPPORT HIM AND TOLD THE POLICE THAT THEY NEVER KNEW ABOUT THE MAJOR'S VISIT TO THE HOTEL THAT PARTICULAR NIGHT.

    FINALLY MAJOR HAD TO PROTECT HIMSELF AS NO ONE THERE TO HELP HIM, SO HE DECIDED TO WITHDRAW THE CASE. THAT IS THE TRUE PICTURES. PLEASE EVERYONE SHOULD UNDERSTAND THIS. THIS MAJOR HAD LOT OF THINGS TO THE COUNTRY, WITH HIS HELP THE AIR FORCE AND ARMY ABLE TO DESTROY MOST NUMBER OF TARGETS OF THE LTTE. UNTIL 2011 HE SERVED IN THE NORTH AND EAST AND CAME TO COLOMBO TO LEAD THE CONTROL THE DRUG MENACE IN THE COUNTRY.
    SO DON'T BLAME HIM, ALTHOUGH HE HAD HIS GUN WITH HIM, AS A PROFESSIONAL SOLDIER, HE NEVER USE GUNS AGAINST CIVILIANS. THAT YOU CALLED BRAVERY. SO THINK ABOUT THAT......
    SOLDIER

    I was reading with interest the comments made by readers over this case since it started, most stated the obvious, i.e. that the army general will eventually say that he was not assaulted and it has come to fruition. Hats off to the readers, you'll know exactly the country/the system. Nevertheless, I like reading any article on Dr Mervin because I enjoy all the readers comments on anything he does or says as he is certaily a funny man and most of the readers comments make me laugh ha ha!

    Gone are the days, officers were recruited after a careful selection process looking at the breed.

    shame on you all!!

    kaputakukula Tuesday, 18 September 2012 09:35 AM

    Yet another drama with political power. Malaka made innocent. That day the samurdhi officer said that Mervyn did not tie him to the tree but he himself. Today the (brave?) army officer says that Malaka did not assault him! BUT listen folks! this lad Malaka, if not tamed to accept the sonsequence of his deeds, soon will meet with the greatest disaster to him and his associates. Bad daddy bringing up his son badly.

    Trehan Munasinghe Tuesday, 18 September 2012 09:32 AM

    This was expected... I guess both Malaka and the Major have lots to loose if this goes to trial... anyway looks like Malaka gets away with it yet again.... All the best to all of them who have wasted our time.... In Conclusion "NO" real Justice in Sri Lanka and these people have NO shame whatsoever... Cheers !

    The CCTV footage can still be presented to court and if there is sufficient evidence to proceed then the AG can so order, despite what the Major said.

    George W Wednesday, 19 September 2012 03:30 AM

    We as Sri Lankans should hang our heads in shame! The Major has been threatened by U No Who and may end up as the Army Commander and the Corporal will be a future Major! The Leadership in the Country and the standards have gone so low that we make Uganda look good.

    A few dubious questions my friends.
    1. Is he a real Major?
    2. If so had he forgotten to protect himself?
    3. Did he go to the hotel far a shady deal?
    4. Who hit him ? or were the reports false?
    5. Was he alone or were there no witnesses, The CCTV?
    6. What about the report he had made about the assault?
    Finally the Army is made up of Soldiers. After the war we were proud of our Army. But today Shame! Shame on you.

    For justices sake and the credibility of the Forces. If what was reported of the incident originally was true, The Major? should not be allowed to withdraw in the light of the evidence.

    He is trying to control drug mencae? how can he do that when a drug lord is given protection by the state and his son assaults the very same army man who is trying to control drugs

    Asrar Tuesday, 18 September 2012 09:51 AM

    Short and sweet , Game over to Sri Lanka
    The CCTV footage was someone practicing for a teledrama notting to do with this case (police will belive this as well )

    Ron Tuesday, 18 September 2012 09:52 AM

    What about the CCTV camera images on which police wanted Malaka for questioning.

    Dilmi Tuesday, 18 September 2012 09:52 AM

    If an army officer can't get the justice in this country, what about us? Shameless politics.

    matara man Tuesday, 18 September 2012 09:53 AM

    Fazli Tuesday, 18 September 2012 09:54 AM

    Roshan Wednesday, 19 September 2012 04:04 AM

    That means the Major admitted to the Hospital for the routine checkup? just wasting the public money.

    Minister Tuesday, 18 September 2012 09:54 AM

    Now we have to find out why people submit Affidavits? Does it have to essentially contain lies or truth?

    Sherlock Holmes Tuesday, 18 September 2012 10:07 AM

    This country and its regime is corrupt to the core.Now its army which we admired so much after its heroic deeds is gone to the gutter with political patronage at its worst. And the Police a bunch of liars and thieves making up fairy storiies to hoodwink the public re why they did not arrest these thugs earliier.The UNHCR are you watching this drama .unravel? The International community will soon see how democracy works in This corrupt country.

    Another Mervyn Tuesday, 18 September 2012 09:56 AM

    redda nathuwa Tuesday, 18 September 2012 09:56 AM

    Sando Tuesday, 18 September 2012 09:56 AM

    Wait wait this is not over more things to happen in the future, Malaka going to contest the next general election and he will be minister in the parliament

    DUWI Tuesday, 18 September 2012 09:59 AM

    Mervin said that Malaka's arrest indicates the Government's transparency and democratic nature.

    The good Major, no doubt was not influenced to file the affidavit in true democratic fashion.

    Pascomingout Wednesday, 19 September 2012 04:16 AM

    Sorry dot com Tuesday, 18 September 2012 10:07 AM

    I knew from the beginning that the Army major will claim that he requested Malaka to hit him.

    But the funny thing is why did the major take such a long time to come out with this.

    human Tuesday, 18 September 2012 10:08 AM

    Dav Tuesday, 18 September 2012 10:16 AM

    Poor man probably values his life and the lives of those around him. You can't blame him for that...

    Sanjaya Tennakoon Tuesday, 18 September 2012 10:16 AM

    After all this, If Malaka decides to contest for the Parliament I have no doubt he will win... Stupid us all Sri Lankans...

    janak Tuesday, 18 September 2012 10:44 AM

    The major must have got the orders from his superiors. He must obey his superiors. Thats the sri lankan style of doing this.
