Madawala ghost for Ratwatte

  • 28 Mar 2006 01:52:51 GMT

    Justman, quite true, this fellow Ratwatta was a Colnol in the volunteer forces then he was made deputy minister of defence by CBK. He then wanted to go to the battle front in his military uniform of a Colnol and hob nob with other military officers and the rank and file. Then what happened was officers senior to a Colnol including the Army Commander who was a Major General were saluting Ratwatta who was the minister who happened to be in his Colnol uniform. This was not proper military discipline where senior ranked officers never salute a junior ranked officer. Then CBK promoted Ratwatta to the rank of General after the Riviresa operation so that then the problem of the salutes would be solved. Ratwatta was a Cardboard General who has not even fired a pistol for the war effort but ended up being promoted from Colnol to General in one go something which will never happen to any other ordinary carrier military officer.

    Problem is not with this kind of idiots,it is the judicial system in sri lanka,why sri lank can not look at other country how there judicial system works.sri lanka will never prosper until sarath n silva is remove.

    LuckyJay, Sarath Silva is the ideal person for politicians be it UNP or PA to have as the head of the judiciary. That is why when the UNP while in the opposition made a huge fuss when Sarath Silva was appointed by CBK and wanted to bring in a no confidence motion against Sarath Silva completely forgot about it when they came into power.

    See the result of the FR case involving MR and the tsunami funds!

    It is a wonder the people of Madawala did not lie in wait to attacke this fellow!

    Officers who carried out the dirty work were given the death penalty.

    There is no justice in our judiciary but justice will be done. Soon Ratwatte will be Rotwatte!

    Loneranger: Do not stone this fellow but those who vote for him should be stoned or rather they are stoned!

    All authors made statements here have shown their political allies. Remember one of your friends lost his seat in Kotte-House for discriminating the Judiciary system. If anybody is directly connected to a crime he should be executed. If anybody has been cleared by a long hearing of the case, then he is cleared. Do not show your nudity in public guys. Can you remember one of your allies who had executive powers in Sri Lanka, Commander of the all forces: How many innocent lives were set to death for his amusement and benefit. Where were you then?

    youre right. we have had with the corrupt officials that you`ll manage to elect everytime. I dont really understand the logic behind electing these guys day in day oout only to be -removed-ed again.

    Let me at this time point you to a earliar posting from HGB the man who said this

    ``I think he has done very well for the Tamils and my only regret is that he is not Singhalese. He could have done a lot of `cleaning up` in the south.``

    here is the whole post. A good read.

    ZENITH: Yeah that CBK was very nasty! Her mother too amused herself by killing 21000 youth in 1971. It was pure sadism.

    It seems sending Ratwatte on campaign trail to Madawala was a wrong move which the Prez. should have stopped. I only hope he did not know. The protest by the Madawala people should open the Prez`s eyes so that he avoids such fiascos in furture.
