A A A

Minister Mervyn Silva’s son Malaka has made a request to leave the country for higher education purposes, to fulfill his aspiration of one day becoming Sri Lanka’s Education Minister.

President’s Council Hemantha Warnakulasooriya appearing on behalf of Malaka Silva informed court that his client was expecting to enter an American University.

Accordingly, Colombo Fort Magistrate has permitted Malaka to be away from October 5 to November 7 but he was ordered to appear in court on November 26. (Lakmal Sooriyagoda)\

    And the popular choice is -------- "The Chimpanzee!! Sorry Malaka you won't make it

    Subbiah Tuesday, 25 September 2012 05:53 AM

    In a developing country, working as Education Minister is challenging. Can Malaka face challenges patiently?

    kolla Tuesday, 25 September 2012 05:53 AM

    Simple ne what different Bandula or Malaka both are same !!!

    Nodrog Tuesday, 25 September 2012 05:59 AM

    Education will not make him a man. He lacks class, decent upbringing and proper guidance. He will always remain a cowardly thug

    Leaving the country for any purpose is a good news for everyone.

    Well deserved !

    Calistus Jayatilleke Monday, 24 September 2012 11:17 AM

    Another trick to avoid the court case. This country is now really owned by these rowdies to do whatever they want. Malaka becoming Minister of Education one day would mean the end of the children of this country who will emulate his behaviour of using drugs, firing guns, visiting night clubs, assaulting people, keeping dozens of girl friends and all other sorts of nefarious activities. Wonder what this sudden urge to join an American University after having failed to learn anything in Australia.

    Chris Perera Monday, 24 September 2012 02:38 PM

    That's all we need in this country

    from the same uni that gave his dad... was it Lubumba from Russia?

    newspapercritique Tuesday, 25 September 2012 02:56 AM

    The only reason that Malaka is leaving the country is because his father knows that what ever the Major says and what ever support he has from the Commander of the Army, the Officer Corp will ensure Malaka is dealt with.

    Jayagoda Tuesday, 25 September 2012 10:52 AM

    For money US Embassy will give him a Green card, ignoring all his police records.

    Dream on mate. By the time you finish whatever you are going to do overseas (I hope they'd teach you a thing or two there - you can't be putting on your airs like here mate), this country will not allow crackpots to govern us anymore. It'll be 'people power' that will ensure that you'd be once and for all rid from this country. They will ensure that crap like you will not be able to even enter politics...

    Cha Tuesday, 25 September 2012 03:05 AM

    The judges in the US will put him in jail... Mervin = nothing overseas, so daddy won't be able to rescue him.
