Malaka released

E-mail Print
Malaka Silva and Rehan Wijeratne, who were remanded on Monday for allegedly assaulting an army major, were released by the Colombo Fort Magistrate today on  bail with two sureties  of Rs 1 million each .

Army Major Chandana Pradeep Susena, who is a witness in an assault case, was questioned by Magistrate Kansihka Wijeratne before the two suspects in this case was released on bail. The Magistrate asked major why he recanted on his earlier statement that the two suspects had assaulted him.
The major responded saying he was under shock at the time he made his complaint to the police. The Magistrate asked him how an army intelligence unit officer with more than 15 years of service could suffer from shock. Then the major said it happened because he was bleeding and traumatised at the time.
The Magistrate said even though a settlement had been reached between the two parties, would not be considered as over because of the robbery charge that is still pending.

He directed the police to investigate the matters mentioned in the complaint made by the army major and also check the CCTV footage on the incident before they submitted their report to court on September 24.

The police were also directed to tell court the action that would be taken against the army major.(Lakmal Sooriyagoda)

Wow! The ending is predictably anti-climax. A fine tele drama scripted, directed and produced by the one and only Thug King of Kelaniya. It is a real pity that even the judicial system has become a mockery with complainants withdrawing their accusations in the face of political thuggery. "Janadhipathi Thumeni, Oba Kohida"?

What makes you think this has happened with out "Janadhipathi Tuma"'s blessings?

The king of Kelaniya has been given powers to do anything he wants by the Maharaja.

Has anything changed when Maharaja was here?

Is this the justice we can expect from the judiciary in future? Doesn't anyone in this country have a backbone? Dear God. Isn't there anyone to help us?

Thugs,rapists and rogues get away and occupy high places in this land.Shame on the government instead of kicking out the thugs they cover them up and we simply watch.What else can we do?If we protest our families will be abducted and we can be killed.

This Major is a shameless officer not fit to serve in an army that was loved and respected by the people.. Mr Army Commander ,,Police Chief, and the judiciary. Do you seriosly consider that justice was done in this case where political pressure was brought to get these offenders out of the clink. How can any person beleive the Majors story that he made his statement to the police re the identity of the thugs when he wa "Shocked". I have consulted an eminent Sri Lankan Psychiatriist in Australia and he was shocked himself to belleive this story given by the Major.. How can any citizen expect justice in this land called "Dhamma Deepa." Hoodlums and criminals have had their last Laugh.,

He was not only shocked, but we public understood that this army major has no back borne, too.

We understand that SL army has such personnel in the service.

It's an alien who knocked the major down. Not Malaka or Rehan. The CCTV video shows that a UFO was sighted when this incident occured. Malaka is innocent.
As for Duminda's case, another alien was the culprit. So, please do not point fingers at Malaka, Duminda etc, etc, etc They are all totally innocent. We need to catch these aliens invading, killing, raping, torturing our people.Oh! I almost forgot about that Colombo Museum incident which was the work of a bunch of aliens. The CCTV video clearly shows that. SL people are very innocent people they have nothing to do with that rape incident of a Finish woman down hikkaduwa. and that past incident where an Israeli tourist was killed by an alien from outer space. Thus, there is no need to introduce the GALLOWS in SL. We need to fight the aliens!!! Find those UFO's. These aliens have been doing these things to our country ever since we got independence from the British.
