Noel Gunaratnam surrendered

10 April 2012 01:47 am - 62     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


A person by the name Noel Mudalige believe to be JVP dissident Kumar Gunaratnam had  surrendered to police last night and presently awaiting the departure at the Bandaranaike International airport, police spokesman Ajith Rohana said

The Police said that the abductors had left the victim in Kolonnawa this morning after which the victim had walked to the CCD and identified himself. Premakumar Gunarathnam was then taken to the airport under Police protection and was sent to Australia at 730 am.

Last night the Australian high commission in Sri Lanka requested the government to look in to the disappearance of a man named Noel Mudalige after a top government official denied any knowledge about Kumar Gunarathnam arriving in the country. Noel Mudalige was believed to be the alias under which Kumar Gunarathnam entered into the country.

    Did anyone realise,,, this guy used a fake name to enter SL, Australian Authorities knew about it yet no one informed... According to Island, he left sri lanka using his real Aussiepassport and return next day with the fake name and passport!

    JVP or socialist rubbish again looking for the same type of violence to overthrow the Gov

    No, he would still surrender but his LIFE in that case !!

    a well directed drama to show in the news bulletines!

    Wait another two days. He will speak from Australia at a news conference to give the truth?

    Rahmathullah Tuesday, 10 April 2012 08:48 AM

    What? There is still law in Sri-Lanka?

    Daya Tuesday, 10 April 2012 08:41 AM

    Govt says it never arrested anyone nor mention about any crimes he already commited or going to commit. Then why he surrended. In that case every innocent citizen should surrender isn't it?

    There is law in Sri Lanka - A joke of the Year 2012

    Leela Wednesday, 11 April 2012 02:01 AM

    Leave out Gunaratnam's sneaking into Sri Lanka a few months back under a different name and married earlier in another name and obtained a passport in yet another name, 'The Hindu' alleged that he was a leader of JVP in the East in 1988 he had killed 14 IPKF soldiers while they were trying to disarm LTTE.

    As in most other kidnapping cases in Sri Lanka, there is proof beyond doubt that either this Gunaratnam or alias Mudalige must have eloped with Dimutu Artigala who is said to have gone missing 10 hours before him but not reported to police until 10 hours later for a quickie or organised their own kidnappings to gain publicity for their now appear to be a flagging political cause.

    j Tuesday, 10 April 2012 04:58 AM

    Then where about poor Sri Lankan ‘ Dimuthu”

    FireStraight Tuesday, 10 April 2012 04:59 AM

    No, this is a miracle of the JVP dissidents.

    DCOL Tuesday, 10 April 2012 10:06 AM

    Gunaratnam and Atigala are so lucky to be back...

    Premakeerthi Alwis, Wijeya Kumarathunga and Many others were not so lucky and denied the freedom of expression by the same people got lucky yesterday...

    Same people slashed mouth of others for speaking a different view against them and even funerals had to be in disgrace..

    Same people crying for the freedom to express today...

    Does Country need Wijeya/Premakeerthi or more Gunarathanams...?

    btw : Gunarathanam's are known for using two Keerthi Wihjebahu...

    Do sincere people possess different passports and use different names to travel around the world? Only crooks and people who have a lot to hide do. This guy is up to no good. GoSL must ensure that he is never ever permitted to put his foot ever again in Sri Lanka.

    Lord Nuremburg Tuesday, 10 April 2012 05:17 AM

    Where is Dimuthu? CID should say where is she? They cant neglect her as an influential country hasnt requestd about her.

    A man with two names, two passports. Which face of his should we believe? Of course, the final story of his will no doubt 'exonorate' himself.... Who is the guy who will tell the world 'I got my colleagues to abduct me so that our party get worldwide publicity'??? Don't be so naive as to wait for his 'news' conference!

    An internet news sheet forum is a wonderful platform to observe the real character of a nation, presuming that each writer thinks of himself as being a representative of the nation, which I feel confident that he does. This Daily Mirror forum is a great example of such a platform and its good to see a nation so exhuberantly expressing itself.

    First they came for the Jews

    and I did not speak out because I was not a Jew.

    Then they came for the Communists

    and I did not speak out because I was not a Communist.

    Then they came for the trade unionists

    and I did not speak out because I was not a trade unionist.

    Then they came for me

    and there was no one left to speak out for me.

    Sasanka Wednesday, 11 April 2012 05:21 AM

    Look at this, This Australian came to SL under a fake or a alias. Then lived here under another name. Then too part in active politics. How can a foreigner allowed to do politics here? ( let alone a revolution) - Can a SL on a visa in australia do any of this?- do politics there? use other names? How fair is that?

    Suranjith Wednesday, 11 April 2012 05:28 AM

    dont cover up wrong what rulers do by bringing different tags such as betrayers, criminals every country has its own law rulers are there to make sure law is followed not law to interprite the way they want

    Few days ago this dissident group declared that their leader is this person and their opening meeting will be 9th, they wanted to get publicity for this occation,I think this is their creation.

    Bigfoot Tuesday, 10 April 2012 06:06 AM

    What would have happened if this had happened to a Sri Lanka citizen in a foreign country? This shows that Sri Lanka has to bent to economically and militarily powerful countries. Dear patriots please note.

    Bigfoot Tuesday, 10 April 2012 06:07 AM

    Never mind the names and the passports, we can now know what was happening.

    raj Tuesday, 10 April 2012 11:56 AM

    What you are saying is similar to what Martin Niemoeller said about the Nazi and the German people

    "First they came for the Communists and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Communist. Then they came for the Jews, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Jew. Then they came for the trade unionists, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a trade unionist. Then they came for the Catholics and I didn't speak up because I was a Protestant. Then they came for me, but by that time, no one was left to speak up."

    Why is he deported in a huge rush before completing the judicial process of his kidnapping? Is the state not interested in looking into his kidnapping? I'm afraid there are many questions to haunt......

    perumal Tuesday, 10 April 2012 11:47 AM

    Then his fate would be the same as that of Eknaligoda for sure! Man missing for ever; No Body, No witnesses, No evidence!! Just disappeared into thin air!!

    "Top government official denied any knowledge about Kumar Gunarathna". How is this official and he should be held responsible for the disappearance and appearance of these two people.

    This is how people with terrorist backgrounds escaped to countries like Australia and gain political asylum hiding their connection with terrorism in the past.

    Dear John

    You are right. What KA did was wrong. So what did the UK government do to him?

    Two wrongs do not make it right. KA and others who did wrong will eventually answer in this life or next.

    My concern is why are people talking about human rights of a crooked individual whose party (or parties) have heaped misery on the majority of the nation. What about the rights of those people who are not part of the political goons. If you thought I was supporting the Government, then you are wrong. My worry is why everybody is so taken up on the 'plight' of activists while the general public are at the receiving end of all politically motivated oportunists? There is an elected Government. Let it run the course and if they are not good change them at the next elections. If you are a local do not rock the boat mid stream. If you are not a local, mind your own affairs.

    Any country would deport u IF u got caught for any reason. They wont come looking for u but if u get caught ur history.. You wont get to go collect ur stuff but straight to an Immigration detention center until they make ur travel arrangements

    jana Tuesday, 10 April 2012 06:50 AM

    If he came on a fake passport, with a fake name he should have been jailed and then deported, he should not have been send on a flight to Australia with perks, If a Sri Lankan enters Australia with a forged passport, overstays his visa and is known associate of a group that killed thousands of people (JVP) he would have been jailed in Australia! You can hate the gov but understand that their is a Law in Sri Lanka.

    A coverup?

    dot Tuesday, 10 April 2012 02:19 AM

    so who was the missing person who overstayed the visa ?.Noel Mudalige or Noel Gunaratnam ... the public would like to know who hid him all this time ?.Some countries do not deport those who overstay visa overnight mystery surrounds all this ..

    If a Sri Lankan had been caught overstaying visa in Sydney, Australia, Australian Immigration Department would have sent him to the Vilawood detention camp to be detained until deportation. They would not have allowed the Sri Lankan High Commissioner to take that person personally to the airport. Why did the Sri Lankan Government surrender to the Australian High Commissioner and to the Canberra Foreign Office and allow the Australian High Commissioner to accompany this character to the airport? No other country would have allowed such a thing to happen. Gunaratnam or what ever name he goes by should have been sent to the courts to be dealt with appropriately.
