D.V. Upul barred from leaving country

A Colombo Court today directed the Controller of the Immigration and Emigration to prevent UPFA Southern Provincial Council Minister D.V. Upul from leaving the country.

Colombo Additional Magistrate Nirosha Fernando issued this order sequent to a submission by the CID over a controversial statement made by him regarding the Police Financial Crime Investigation Division (FCID).

Addressing a public gathering on May 31, he had allegedly threatened to stone to death the officers attached to the FCID once Mahinda Rajapaksa returned to power as the Prime Minister.

The CID launched an investigation into the controversial statement made by Provincial Council Minister following his serious remarks over the FCID.

The Provincial Council Minister made this remark in the presence of UPFA Parliamentarian Namal Rajapaksa and several other local politicians representing the Hambantota district.

"Collect the name-list of FCID officers from police constables to the DIG. They should be stoned to death when Mahinda Rajapaksa becomes the Prime Minister of this country. We are waiting till that day arrives. If someone in the government opposes that, we will take to the streets against the government," Mr. Upul told the gathering. (Lakmal Sooriyagoda)

    Just imagine the mentality of the politicians who are henchmen of former president. It is a shame to have uneducated, third grade thugs in Sri Lankan politics who are not even qualified to work as a street sweeper.

    Mahinda Rajapaksha is a fool and then he acts like a magnate for fools.

    These are the types admired by Rajapakse clan. This monkey also knows that blind sycophancy to his Master Rajapakse can get him many returns, similar to the way Vasudeva, Weerawansa, Dinesh survive. Minus the master, all these monkeys will have to get back to their trees and survive.

    This is a good example for people who naively voted for MR during the last elections, to figure out the caliber of people who were running the country under MR regime.

    sarath Friday, 05 June 2015 08:21 AM

    What are the countries he has visited so far with government funds. Perhaps Bang kok?

    Desmond Jeromme Friday, 05 June 2015 10:31 AM

    For relating such a nasty statement about our Police Department, he should have been by now arrested, then only the UPFA thugs will learn a lesson.

    Horri Jimonis Friday, 05 June 2015 10:29 AM

    May be he may have forged Passports like Weerawansa. Please check.

    Desmond Jeromme Friday, 05 June 2015 10:28 AM

    MR gives all thuggery contracts to him. He has so many allegations. CID pls. arrest this raskol.

    Kiris Baba Amaray Friday, 05 June 2015 10:27 AM

    This idiot is a No.1 thug from the shanties. He should be arrested anyway.

    Bubble Banda Friday, 05 June 2015 10:24 AM

    May be like Vasu, who was cocked inside the Parliament itself and uttering filth. He is also one of his close relative, these guys are rubbish.. no culture atall.

    Premalal Friday, 05 June 2015 10:11 AM

    He should be allowed to go to Saudi Arabia where he could ply his trade legally.

    Fassey Friday, 05 June 2015 09:49 AM

    We can imagine how the country would be if MR becomes the PM. All the rogues and his henchmen would start their illegal activities again.

    Bala Friday, 05 June 2015 09:42 AM
