Malaka to holiday, not study

Counsel for Malaka Silva, Jayantha Weerasekara filing a motion before the Fort magistrates court a short while ago said that the purpose of Malaka Silvas visit to the United States was not higher education.

The counsel said that the lawyers had mistakenly informed court during the last hearing that the purpose of the tour was education. The counsel informed court that the purpose of the tour was in fact a holiday.

The court granted approval for Silva to leave the country on October 10 to November 20, after the lawyers had earlier requested for October 5 to the November 7. (Lakmal Sooriyagoda)

    So can anyone (from now on) who is arrested for anything, take time off the court case if he wants to go for a holiday abroad??

    As I know him personally from my school days. He is real bull. How he can pursue for High Education. He even did not get through the O/L.

    Haaa haaaaa haaaa.

    RegularJoe Wednesday, 03 October 2012 11:06 AM

    obviously ... you need a brain to study right?

    RegularJoe Wednesday, 03 October 2012 11:08 AM

    i guess thats what they say "Your Tax rupees at work "

    Psyke Wednesday, 03 October 2012 06:30 AM

    Like we know he was going for studies

    shan Wednesday, 03 October 2012 06:29 AM

    It looks like the lawers represent Silva also from the same catagory.Cheating and lieing.

    Lobo Wednesday, 03 October 2012 06:34 AM

    What??? Does he need a break from his thuggery or he is giving us a break?

    Dinesh Wednesday, 03 October 2012 06:36 AM

    1. Public servant's son can afford to go to USA for a holiday?
    2. How did USA grant visa to a person having pending criminal investigation several times.
    3. Is the US intelligence service is so weak or are they just turning a blind eye?
    4. If they are turning a blind eye (maybe for money) then all sorts of criminals/terrorists can enter USA. Maybe this is what happened in 9/11 and can happen in the future.

    The miracle island, the land like no other. Off the hook again.

    jokerr Wednesday, 03 October 2012 11:35 AM

    Honestly, I won't be surprise if he comes in an election sometime soon and our people will choose him.

    Hussain Wednesday, 03 October 2012 06:49 AM

    The circus continues in Sri Lanka. We are only the spectators.

    asoka Wednesday, 03 October 2012 06:47 AM

    as if we are bothered...studies holidays no matter...as long as stay away from sri lanka...we really like that

    Ha Ha Ha Wednesday, 03 October 2012 06:50 AM

    Who cares whether he go to study or on holiday

    willows Wednesday, 03 October 2012 06:51 AM

    Miracle of Asia at its best???

    prasa Wednesday, 03 October 2012 07:08 AM

    Great Lawyers - Not just a mistake but he told that Malake is going to study to become Education Minister !!

    C. Seneveratne Wednesday, 03 October 2012 07:04 AM

    It looks like there is no transparency in what they say.

    Lakmal Wednesday, 03 October 2012 07:11 AM

    EDUCATION and Malaka ????? Sounds like the North Pole and South Pole. Holidaying in the USA sounds more like it. Hope the anti narcotics police in the USA catches him.

    Pondering Wednesday, 03 October 2012 07:22 AM

    Aww, after his mental stress, he wanted to go and party in America, Silva Style. So, who came up with the story of going to America for studies? certainly not us readers, eh?

    Goto kola Wednesday, 03 October 2012 07:23 AM

    The Presidential Election in America is looming large in the Horizon, battle of Obama Vs Romney is gradually warming up; the ID law for voters in Pennsylvania has been suspended, some observers predict its favour for Barack Obama, I think it’s a right time Malaka to be there with his beloved father Dr. Mervin. If Obama humble enough to get advice from these guys his victory is inevitable.

    niranjan Wednesday, 03 October 2012 07:26 AM

    US will never grant visa to a person with any criminal records,He must be parting in Singapore with Dumintha

    Spencer48 Wednesday, 03 October 2012 07:31 AM

    Thanks Malaka the country will be thankful that you are away .. . .I am sure u need a break after the MAJOR incident.

    wedige Wednesday, 03 October 2012 07:41 AM

    I love your note !

    Just Another Citizen Wednesday, 03 October 2012 07:40 AM

    Dear Daily Mirror,

    Can you please investigate how the visa was issued? I'm sure they will say he has a five year multiple entry visa.

    Padma Wednesday, 03 October 2012 07:45 AM

    Are giving up educational ministerial post? Instead of that are you try to become the foreign ministerial post

    kaputakukula Wednesday, 03 October 2012 07:53 AM

    Malaka does not need further education. His daddy the Dr. has already taught him everything Malaka required. Malaka is quick to learn and act what he learned from his DUD (sorry folks it should read DAD)

    jehan Wednesday, 03 October 2012 07:52 AM

    If you and me want to go to USA , they look for even our grandfather had made any crimes.?.lol..in this case USA grant VISA for well known thugs which means all are just money and politics. Start complaing to US state department. lol

    meenavan Wednesday, 03 October 2012 08:01 AM

    aiyo what to do Wednesday, 03 October 2012 08:02 AM

    Anon Count Friday, 05 October 2012 02:59 AM

    Sri Lanka will never vote for you as you are a criminal and a thug..

    peeda mossa Wednesday, 03 October 2012 02:22 PM

    Don't try to do things beyond your capabilities.

    GP Wednesday, 03 October 2012 08:08 AM

    how can trust that he is going to USA. May be China or Iran

    Shamali Wednesday, 03 October 2012 08:18 AM

    Really good comment, Dinesh. Hope this catches the US Immigration Authorities eyes! He has a criminal record. Did he lie in his Visa application?

    99.9 % of children are born as a perfect human beings unless disabled or mentally retarded. These innocent children would become burden and harmful to the society they live mainly due the faults of parents. However the children who have good brain or thinking power can definitely understand the wrong doings of the parents and correct themselves and become perfect. However very few are very unfortunate, with the combine of bad parental guidance and bad Karma they have done.

    Nishantha Rajapaksa Wednesday, 03 October 2012 08:49 AM

    perumal Thursday, 04 October 2012 03:48 PM

    He need not exert himself reading for a first degree, he will get an honorary doctorate in time and become a minister.

    ANTON Wednesday, 03 October 2012 09:04 AM

    This is the way poor srilankans tax payments are invested

    ash Thursday, 04 October 2012 04:29 PM

    The Lawyers were in shock, I guess

    Criticism Wednesday, 03 October 2012 09:05 AM

    The real truth news is written under the comment, not the main news.
    Now the trnd is people are reading the comment than the news itself

    Cobbler Wednesday, 03 October 2012 09:31 AM

    He will come back in few years to become the Defence Secretary or the minister of Economic Development.

    "The counsel said that the lawyers had mistakenly informed court during the last hearing that the purpose of the tour was education. The counsel informed court that the purpose of the tour was in fact a holiday."

    Definitely I need the contact numbers of Mr Malaka Silva's Doctor and Lawyer they are brilliant... Money worth spent..

    Yeah for sure he was going for education... Judge !! You should have asked the counsel if he was HIGH !!!

    Kira Sunday, 14 October 2012 02:10 AM

    US or Any other country does not care who he is! . Mater onlly the money he spend in that country . But As Sri Lankans we must learn "Next election who goes home and who elect".
