Court of Inquiry wasn’t appointed to implicate the officer – Army

E-mail Print
Acting Military Spokesman Brigadier G. V. Ravipriya said the Court of Inquiry was not appointed to implicate the officer who was allegedly assaulted by Malaka Silva, but to probe into the details of the incident

Responding to a statement made by ex-Army Commander Sarath Fonseka in which he claimed the military is trying to take action against the officer involved inthe incident, Brigadier Ravipriya said the appointment of the Court of Inquiry is a routine action and assured that it does not imply the officer in question would be reprimanded.

“There are various claims being circulated about the incident. So the Court of Inquiry was appointed only to gather a true account of the incident,” he added.

Meanwhile, commenting on the accusation against the Army, on their inaction to arrest the culprits of the incident, Brigadeir Ravipriya said it is not the Army’s duty to conduct investigations into the incident.

“The Police have initiated an investigation into the incident and the Army cannot interfere with it as we are not provisioned to implemented civil law,” he said. (Lakna Paranamanna)

One of your Guys in the hospital, did you ever bother to ask the IGP to arrest the people who attacked him. If it is civil law why you bother to appoint a court of inquiry

Please dont appoint a "court of inquiry". If Army do do that, then, poor Major definetely will punish and put into the cell similar to S.F. Dont worry Gota will have plans to do that.

Brig Ravipriya, don't become a shameless idiot.
Its far honorable to beg on the streets than be the Military Spokesman.

I feel ashamed because what a big amount of public money is spent on the Army officers for their training and welfare. These good officers should be respected whether they be in uniform or civies. Malaka's disgraceful behaviour is a SHAME on the Intelligence Officers and the soldiers.

This incident clearly indicated that country is going wrong side. We have experienced many signs like this over a period of time. People supported MR’s regime not for this. It is paramount to maintain law and order. It is shame on MR, Gota and other top ranks to safeguard crooks like Malaka. People are losing confidence of the government. This type of news is circulating around the globe and GOSL is losing its creditability internationally .
Why ON EARTH MR PROTECT THESE THUGS? ONLY GOD KNOWS.

Why waste time with a court of inquiry. Just get the CCTV record from the Hotel. We all know that neither the Police nor the Army will have the guts to arrest the offender as he is the son of King of Kelaniya who is backed to the hilt by the King of Sri Lanka.

Come, come Brig: I was in the Army, who are you trying to con, or impress? Gota, MR? Army Court of inquiry is not required for brawls which take place, when the officer is off duty, & not in uniform(when in civis) even if a person is greviously hurt, by a firearm issued by the Army to the officer concerned, it still becomes a Police matter(Investig ation) Army will only assist in that inquiry. In this case it is the Army officer who was hurt & hospitalized, it's the Army Commanders duty to make an official request from the IGP to arrest these thugs. Unofficially if Army has any backbone(IT was there when SF was Commander) they should thrash the living daylights out of this political brat(Malaka) & his goons. Jagth Jayasooriya, you have made our Brave & Great Army a CLOWN'S CIRCUS!!(Politi cal Cats Paw) Shame on you!

I can not understand why people take sides without looking at the truth. There were many instances that Army officers have raped, murdered and beat innocent people to show their power. Similarly there were instances where Politically affiliated people have shown their thuggery too. This could be that the ARMY person took a wrong target without knowing the opponent. Can anyone punish or declare innocent without a trial.? Then I will hit some tomorrow and go to the police to complaint if that man hits me back.. Funny world with frogs

It is exactly what this "court of IInquiry" is set up to do. Protect the son and friend of the most powerful man in the Rajapakse regime and blame the Major for being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

heads you win tails you lose.

Yes as long as bones are given to lick dogs will be happy. What a shame. Better to remove the uniform and wear a sari. Show off their power only to innocent protesters and unarmed civilians.

I can remember, one of my friend lit fire crackers in a High Security Zone and Army took him to the Fort police and remanded.Similarly why Army cant do that? This not minor incident . Asalting a Major is a higly offensive crime.

The whole country is aware that the offender is the son of King of Kelaniya who runs the area to his own system. King of Kelaniya is a close associate of King of Sri Lanka. So why worry about one army officer who was only wounded. How many officers and soldiers would have sacrificed their lives for the King? Just forget this incident.

People know what would be the final result of this. Court of inquiry will decide nothing has happened to army officer, Where are the patriot people who sold war victory those days for their own benefits.

What is the necessity for a " court of inquiry" by the Army? This is a Police matter and the perpetrators of this criminal act are well known, why are they not arrested immediately as is the procedure in assault cases. Not only was this officer assaulted but his pistol too was taken. Why was the driver not detained when he came to return the pistol. Is there one law for politicians families and another for others. In a Democracy no one is above the law.

Army has no back bone. Whilst a Officer has been assaulted by a licensed thug Army is sleeping. Go hand take action against these thugs. You would do if it has done by a ordinary person.
