Charge sheet on ‘Rajapakse family’ - Basil

26 June 2011 01:30 pm - 55     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


Claiming that some local and international NGO are continuously trying to make conspiracies against Sri Lanka, Economic Development Minister Basil Rajapaksa said that the US State Department in an earlier occasion had even prepared a charge sheet highlighting the ‘Rajapakse family’

Addressing an event in Embilipitiya, Minister Rajapaksa said that after the elimination of Tamil Tigers, some escaped LTTE cadres with the foreign countries joined together and try to destabilize the country with the assistance of some foreign forces.

“Some NGOs also has joined with them. Now those malicious forces are making a lot of conspiracies one by one. Once the US State Department has prepared a ‘charge sheet’ highlighting the ‘Rajapakse family’. Afterwards the Darusman Report came,” he said.
He also said that Then Prime Minister Ranil Wicremesinghe had betrayed the country and gave eight districts in the North and East to the LTTE by a famous agreement called ‘Ranil-Prabha Agreement’.

“Now they are talking about Human Rights, War Crimes and the Right to have Information. Villagers are asking what are these? In fact a recently forwarded proposal to Parliament had been drafted by a certain NGO,” the minister charged.

He said that imperialists found the facts from the same country which they were intended to invade. They have put their fingers to Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya through interfering of internal affairs of those countries.

“Therefore people should be aware of what’s happening now than any other times. Those days British imperialists used some of our people to conquer the entire land. Therefore we say to the people like them, not to be traitors and betray our country and make protests at the lure of Dollars and Euros,” he added. (Daily Mirror online)

    Of course, but, what is the use of saying these things in Embilipitiya?. Let him make these remarks when he next goes to US for a holiday or at the UN or even to Ban the Moon.

    DUWI Monday, 27 June 2011 02:42 AM

    Sri Lanka, Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan should also prepare a Charge Sheet on the Bush family.

    Cynic Monday, 27 June 2011 02:56 AM

    Basil sounds so superficial.

    how is a charge sheet against the "Rajapakse family" a conspiracy against Sri Lanka?

    Ezhilini Monday, 27 June 2011 04:41 AM

    Tissamaharama Monday, 27 June 2011 04:48 AM

    Not sure why the US govenment is delaying this "charge sheet". Judging by all the nepotism that is going on, there is obviously a prima facie case

    Paul Monday, 27 June 2011 05:10 AM

    Why only against your family?Why don't they prepare chargesheets against other familes?Are you doing anything bad for them,OR are you doing anything good for us?

    "They have put their fingers to Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya" but it will be impossible in our case.

    I Hussein Monday, 27 June 2011 05:35 AM

    Ok fine, why not Basil and his family give up the greencards and residency in the US.
    Can they try that for a change?

    Priyanka Tuesday, 28 June 2011 03:25 AM

    it looks like Sri Lankans are either war criminals or terrorist or both (K Runa)

    mohan Monday, 27 June 2011 05:38 AM

    why did your family members took us citizenship, USA have all rights prepare charge sheet against its citizen.

    Ruwanthi Senadhi Monday, 27 June 2011 05:38 AM

    This is how politicians take the entire country for a ride. First they point to a non-existent devil. Then they point to themselves as the saviours who won the war. Finally, they say the devil is after us, so only you, the public, can save us by believing us, because only then we can save you from the threats of the now dead tigers. Based on the war victory, the Rajapakse family can run the show for another decade - and by that time, the family will be so well positioned with resources that no one will have enough resources to take them to court or ask for financial statements. Shouldn't every politician be audited?

    Can see people strat to realise about MR & Co busniness. Mind you, since Independance they use minority card and took the power. Now what is next. Tamils are not stupid.They are well off after the war .Look at their education and wealth in EUROPE, Canada and Australia. We can go on talk about LTTE and live below poverty line and all the minsters and diplomates will have citizenship in another country and increase their weatl. Singala mass protest like JVP DURING 70'S WERE NETURALISED BY INDIAN AND SLFP.India will never allow our counrty to grow. Wake up guys
