13500 Million Defense Fund Missing Death Squad Rajapakshe Raided

Some time back I posted an article quoting a Lankan News Paper that former President of Lanka, Rajapaksha visited Tirupati,in india, not to worship, but to sell illegally obtained God(350Kg)

There is news that his residence was raided by the authorities.

Embattled former Sri Lankan president Mahinda Rajapaksa’s country home in the southern province has been raided by police who were looking for a luxury sports car but the search drew a blank.

“They raided our house in Tangalle yesterday looking for a Lamborghini car,” said Namal Rajapaksa, the former president’s elder son and a parliamentarian.

Police spokesman Ajith Rohana said the search was done on a court warrant but it drew a blank.

“They have been harassing us by searching not only our own houses but those of our friends. We can’t visit homes of our associates because they get their places searched,” Namal said.

He said the police complaint was based on false information that they were hiding a sea plane and tyres of racing cars.

“All they found was a pedal boat used by pre-school children,” Namal said.

The search of Rajapaksa’s country home comes days after police launched a probe into allegations that his younger brother Gotabhaya ran “death squads” and ordered the murder of a high-profile newspaper editor.

Basil Rajapaksa, the other brother of Rajapaksa and the former economic development minister, has also been accused of being involved in a number of shady deals.

Since Mahinda Rajapaksa’s defeat to Maithripala Sirisena in the January 8 election, the state media have been showing visuals of the Rajapaksa family’s extravagant life styles.

The visuals of air-conditioned toilets with digital video screens fixed at the official Temple Trees residence have been aired on state television.

During the run up to the polls, the then opposition accused Rajapaksa’s sons of owning helicopters, expensive horses from royal stables in the UK and expensive racing cars.

Information on alleged properties of the Rajapaksa family is being regularly given to police since the advent of Sirisena-led new government….( The Hindu dated 20 January 2015)..

But reports from Lanka indicate that Rjapaksha was involved in misappropriating Rs.13,500 Million of Lanka Defense Ministry Fund.

This is in addition to 350 kgs of Gold procured illegally.

“As huge as Rs.1500 million in cash !! had been discovered by accident at Temple trees after Medamulana crook Mahinda Rajapakse (better known now as the modern ‘Alibaba’ ) who ruled the country brutally for 9 years fled Temple Trees on the 9 th morning ,when all his unlawful hasty and frantic attempts to be in power via military conspiracies and treason against the country (to be in power by hook or by crook –borrowing his own words) flopped. In the confusion and desperation when he ran away from Temple Trees on the 9th these monies have been left behind by him.

All these hard cash in valid local and foreign currency were found inside a room under lock and key. A Temple Trees source told Lanka e news ,if this colossal sum of money were left behind when fleeing away in panic , what amount of money would have been taken along by this Medamulana modern Alibaba? It is learnt that the Treasury had been informed of these monies .

At the same time it has come to light the amount of money taken out of the state defense funds and wasted by the Rajapakses at their whims and fancies is also as large as Rs. 135,00 million!! In the defense fund Taprobane branch account which had Rs. 210,00 million , presently there is only Rs. 7500 million . The balance Rs. 13500 million taken by Mahinda Rajapakse as the minister of finance and defense has at his will and pleasure spent them without any records or documents!

According to Ministry of finance informed sources , based on these monumental frauds and misappropriation of state funds in billions and billions of rupees committed by Medamulana Mahinda Rajapakse , even if the most powerful of powerful omni -potentates intervene Mahinda Rajapakse going to jail cannot be averted.

In other words ,even if Mahinda relies on his most powerful den of countless Alibaba thieves he nursed and nurtured so carefully covering all their crookedness and corruption in order to suppress his own mischief , murders and crookedness during his 9 year despotic reign ,he cannot be rescued.”


Running Death Squad -Gotabhaya Rajapakshe.

Sri Lankan authorities are investigating a claim that the toppled president’s younger brother ran a “death squad” and ordered a high-profile newspaper editor’s assassination, a police spokesman said.

Former defence secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa ordered the hit on Lasantha Wickrematunga in January 2009, ex-public relations minister Mervyn Silva alleged in a formal complaint lodged with police on Saturday, the spokesman said.

Wickrematunga was fatally shot in 2009, just days before he was due to testify in a defamation case Rajapaksa had filed against his paper, which had been highly critical of the then-ruling family.

“We have received a complaint that Gotabhaya Rajapaksa was responsible for abductions, assaults and murder,” police spokesman Ajith Rohana told AFP news agency on Sunday.

“Three murders have been mentioned and one is that of Lasantha Wickrematunga. He (Rajapaksa) is accused of running a death squad.” Rohanna added.

Rajapaksa could not be contacted for comment.

Wickrematunga and his Sunday Leader newspaper were vocal critics of Rajapaksa’s administration, and had accused Gotabhaya of corruption over the purchase of second-hand aircraft and arms for the military…



Sunanda Shashi Tharoor Sonia IPL Money Laundering

The alleged murder of Sunanda Pushkar, wife of Congress MP Shashi Tharoor, revealed by forensic study by AIMS, throws a lot of questions.

At the time of the incident,information surfaced that two foreign nationals on forged passports traveled to Dubai on the night of the murder.

Nothing more was heard of despite suspicions that the murder looked Mafia Style.

Now nearly after a year, with a change in the Government, the enquiry hotted up with suspicions about Tharoor’s alleged extra marital affair with a Pakistan journalist , Meher.

The deposition of the Tharoor household that he heard Sunannda speaking to some one on the day of her murder that she would reveal everything to Media and Shashi Tharoor is finished.

There is also the suspicion that, considering the Shashi Tharoor IPL connection might have been one of the reasons for the murder.

Dr.Subramanian Swamy alleges that IPL was used to launder Oil for Food scam involving Iraq and Sunnanda was about to divulge the information linking Sonia Gandhi to IPL money laundering, Oil for scam.

It may be noted that Natwar Singh, former Union Minister of the Congress also stated that Sonia Gandhi was involved in the Oil for Food fraud in which former UN Chief Kofi Annan’s son was indicted.

” Journalist Nalini Singh told TOI on Thursday that Shashi Tharoor’s wife, Sunanda Pushkar, had spoken to her about some IPL issue which she claims she could not comprehend. She said Sunanda had brought it up during the phone conversation the two had on the intervening night of January 16 and 17. Sunanda was found dead on January 17.

“I don’t remember what exactly she said. I can recall she had said something like “look at this IPL mess also and that I also took on the IPL thing’,” Singh said.”

Interestingly, Subramanian Swamy has been alleging that Sunanda was murdered as she wanted to expose the IPL muck and money laundering being carried out through it. He has even dragged a member of the Gandhi family into the controversy.


“Dr. Subramaniam Swamy has said Congress lawmaker Dr. Shashi Tharoor must be thoroughly investigated in the murder of his wife Sunanda Puskhar Tharoor.

“I am a 100 percent certain that Tharoor did not murder his wife, but I am a 100 percent sure that he was aware of it and facilitated it, ” he told The News Minute (TNM) in an interview conducted over the telephone. “This has been done because what Sunanda was to reveal points to Sonia Gandhi,” he added.

Asked what was the nature of this evidence and he said there are two issues. “One is the money laundering through IPL which involves Robert Vadra and the other is the oil-for food stamps -Sonia Gandhi is the common link,” he said. The Indian Premier league (IPL) is a cricket tournament in India and the oil- for-food refers to the United Nations’ (UN) arrangement with Saddam Hussain’s Iraq to povide essential foods in exchange for oil. The UN provided food stamps, not cash, to Iraq as money to buy food for its people.”

According to Swamy, Sunanda Pushkar had told friends that the food stamps distributed in Iraq and written in Arabic had Sonia Gandhi’s name on them. Sunanda Tharoor had told her friends that Tharoor had bragged that because of the evidence he had, he was untouchable.

India and Iraq shared a close relationship at that time and Prime Minister Inder Kumar Gujral was among few world leaders who travelled to Baghdad to show his solidarity towards the Iraqi people. It maybe recalled that former foreign minister Natwar Singh resigned following the Volker committee report saying he had been made a scapegoat to protect other people. The oil-for-food also involved the family of the UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan whose son Kojo Annan was working for a Switzerland based company named Cotecna Inspection Services S.A which from 1998-2003 had a contract with the UN to monitor food arriving in Iraq under the oil-for-food programme. There was no direct evidence linking Kojo Annan to the payments, but he received money from Cotecna long after he had stopped working for them. Shashi Tharoor was Kofi Annan’s right hand man ever since the two met in Geneva in the early eighties.

“She was not on Alprax. Medical reports say that. Tharoor is on Alprax and he will break down if he is interrogated – this is what the Congress Party is afraid of,” Dr. Swamy said. ..

One of the earliest allegations of wrongdoing in the programme surfaced on 25 January 2004, when al Mada, a daily newspaper in Iraq, published a list of individuals and organizations alleged to have received oil sales contracts via the UN’s Oil-for-Food Programme. The list came from over 15,000 documents which were reportedly found in the state-owned Iraqi oil corporation, which had close links to the Iraqi Oil Ministry.

Named in the list of beneficiaries were British MP George Galloway and his charity, the Mariam Fund; former French Interior Minister Charles Pasqua; and Shaker al-Kaffaji, an Iraqi-American businessman, India’s foreign minister, Natwar Singh, was removed from office because of his role in the scandal. Many prominent Russian firms and individuals were also included on the al Mada list. Even the Russian Orthodox Church was supposedly involved in illegal oil trading. The former assistant to the Vatican secretary of state, Reverend Jean-Marie Benjamin, is said to have received rights to sell 4.5 million barrels (720,000 m3). George Galloway subsequently won two libel actions against the Christian Science Monitor and Daily Telegraph, which reported the allegations.



Jayalalithaa Bail Rejection Right Correct

It is quite some time now since I have written on Political cases involving corruption save for the one on Jayalalithaa’s arrest in the disproportionate wealth  case.


Reason is that I was fed up on reporting corruption exhaustively only to find that the process of Law being subverted .


The culprits remain unpunished, going about their tasks of amassing wealth as usual, with more vigor.


Now a ray has appeared  in the conviction of Jayalalithaa.


For my article the End of Dravidian parties in Tamil Nadu, where I dealt with Jayalalithaa’s conviction, I have received. apart from emails,personal calls,stating that my views are wrong,there are people who are more corrupt going scot-free,like Sonia Gandhi,Karunanidhi,A.Raja and many more;


Jayalaithaa’s conviction for 66.64 crore is a pittance against Rs 1,86,000 crore 2G scam and some other corruption cases;


She has done a lot for the poor;


Some told me as a Brahimin I should desist from  condemning Jjayalalithaa.


My friend for about 50 years slammed and hung up the phone on me.


Now that Jayalalithaa’s bail application has been rejected by the High Court of Karnataka, which I anticipated,my view on this issue remains the same.


We seem to have watered down basic values, being Honest,of Integrity, Sincerity, Loyalty.


We have started giving shades to the values.


Less Honest,Less sincere, slightly less loyal etc.


Moral values are Absolute.


There can be difference between one who takes Rs 100 as Bribe and another who takes ONE CRORE.


Both are corrupt and have to be punished.


People have been saying that Bail should be granted.


Bail is not a matter of Right and it is the discretion of the court.


As for as the contention that Lallu Prasad has been granted bail in th Fodder scam, the judge , who tried Jayalalithaa’s case, observed that Lallu had been in Jail for ten months and Jayalalithaa has been in Jail for only ten days.


He has also observed correctly  that corruption is an assault on basic Human Rights.


Surprising why prosecution did not object for the bail


The judgement is Morally Right and legally correct.


I expect more abuses for this article.


There is no parity with Lalu Prasad’s case; corruption is violation of Human Rights.


Karnataka high court on Jayalalithaa’s plea..



End Of Dravidian Parties In Tamil Nadu?

The long-awaited verdict in the Tamil Nadu CM Jayalithaa’s case is out in the Bangalore Special Court at Parapana Agrahara.


This is in connection with the acquisition of  disproportionate  assets case and she has been charged under the Prevention of Corruption Act under sections   13 (1) for Criminal Misconduct by Public Servants,109 for abetting and Section 120 B (Criminal Conspiracy)


The case was filed in 1996 by Dr.Subramaniam Swamy.


This relates to.


The conduct of Jayalalithaa’s adopted son Sudhakaran at a cost of Rs 5 Crore.


2000 acres of Land and farms.


Possession of  1200 pairs of footwear and


12.000 Silk Sarees.


( This pales against 2 G and other scams Rs 1,86,000 Crore and above)




The Court had pronounced the accused Jayalalithaa, Sasikala,Ilavarasi and Sudhakaran Guilty.



The quantum of punishment , Jayalalithaa,


Four years Imprisonment and Rs 100 Crore Fine,,failing with additional one year in Jail”for others 4 years imprisonment and Rs ten crore fine, failing which additional one year imprisonment for Jayalalithaa and six months for the others,




The section attracts a total of 7 years imprisonment.


However the Court has its discretion.


Bail and appeal procedures will follow,


However the chances of relief seem to be remote considering the time taken for the conclusion of the case,17 years,, and the detailed way the court has gone about the case.




Jayalalithaa  will lose her MLA post and has to resign as the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu.


If the quantum of sentence is more than three years, bail may be granted.


In any case Jayalalithaa may have to spend at least two days in prison(Saturday and Sunday)


She may appoint a benami CM probably O.Pannerselvam who has been the Nominee CM when Jayalalithaa was convicted in TANSI Land case.


She might go in for a snap election well ahead of the next election in about one and a half-year.


Sympathy vote might work in her favor.


But she will be out of Politics at least  between 5 to nine years,


Whether she would be able to control the party till then is a moot question.


The next in the line for power is DMK, which has been wiped out in the recently conclude election because of 2G.


People are not in favour of DMK and Karunanidhi and CO with corruption cases and family infights.


There is  a power vacuum now in Tamil Nadu.


If National Parties, especially the BJP moves in with Modi at the Center, it will be a turning point.


Is the BJP up to it?


Is it willing?


The Dravidian Parties have ruined Tamil Nadu, its social fabric and undesirable element shave found refuge in these parties and both these appeared to be invincible, with either of them coming to power.


Now Providence has given a path.


Time to get rid of them. lock stock and barrel.
