The Pivithuru Hela Urumaya (PHU) yesterday said that Sri Lanka had allegedly supported the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) in several abductions.
PHU General Secretary MP Udaya Gammanpila told a news conference that these facts were revealed in a book written by former Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s daughter Attorney Amrith Singh.
MP Gammanpila said America was searching for a Russian computer hacker named Manokin Raufowich for stealing confidential information.
“He was produced in courts in Sri Lanka after been arrested during a holiday with his wife and daughter and was released on bail. Then he went missing. There were no immigration and emigration reports about his departure from Sri Lanka,” he added.
He said it was reported that he was taken to America by American Intelligence Unit with the support of the Sri Lankan government.
“According to the said book, CIA organization can abduct any person they wish while on holiday abroad. Then that person will be landed to an army camp by a private plane. There would be no clue that the wanted person has left the country,” he said.
He said however, this person was not taken to America but to a torture chamber in another country where there are less punishments. He also said that this book had included a list of countries which are supporting these kinds of acts where Sri Lanka was one of them.
“Page 109 of this book said that Sri Lankan government has supported these illegal abductions. This book reveals in August 2003, Sri Lanka has supported the CIA in abducting Riduwaan Isamudeen,” he added.
He said Prime Minster Ranil Wickremesinghe who was now in power was the Prime Minister at that time and added that it was a well known fact that he was biased towards America.
He said that it was a question whether the Russian hacker had met with the same fate as Riduwaan Isamudeen. He also said that it was the government's responsibility to reveal it. (Kalathma Jayawardhane)

Mr. Gammanpila this is not the need of the hour. Stop being a child and act like a grownup. There are thousand many things you have to raise for the benefit of this country rather than making comments on a book with unproven incidents.

Oh! You are referring to the "White Vans". I think you can get more details from your main handler on this issue. Please do not try to fool us. We have had enough of you and Modawansa, another of you type. That is talking with no substance.

This is why we must wholeheartedly support a country like North Korea challenging the Americans. No one is safe even in their own country from American abduction.

Americans are the current leaders of the White Race,before it was led by Western European Countries. They are all into these illegal operations together. Their main Agents in the third world countries are the Christian Converts.

Unlike MR , Ranil is an all rounder. He can talk of Democracy, Human Rights,and occasionally he can also drive a Van.

Hon Gammanpila has not thought of the many abductions during the "MR" Regime. He is suddenly woken up from a dream. I trust soon he will talk about the abductions during 2005 to 2014

Before you offer your two cents worth of opinion, why don't you ask your leader MR and Gota about the abductions during their regime. or are these easily forgotten like when you politicians forget things for your convenience. This idiot is just seeking publicity.

Then what were your MR doing since 2005. You had ample time to find out. You react after reading the book written by former daughter of Indian PM.

It is true that the CIA carried out such operations. This also happened in Germany at the time when the US still had its own Air Bases there, but without the cooperation of German authorities. The numbers of the aircraft that the CIA used for these operations are now known. Even the CIA agents involved in the abduction are known, but the US refuses extradition to Germany.

In 2003 August abductions were there and Mahinda happened to be one of the most powerful ministers of the Government who became PM in 2004. Instead referring to a book written by a foreign lady Gamma shall consult Mahinda to realize the CIA dealings.
