Holy Mother, where are you ? Tonight, I feel broken in two
By Eric Clapton, Luciano Pavarotti....Here are the LYRICS....

Holy Mother, where are you?
Tonight, I feel broken in two
I've seen the stars fall from the sky
Holy Mother, can't keep from crying

Oh, I need your help this time
Get me through this lonely night
Tell me, please, which way to turn
To find myself again

Holy Mother, hear my prayer
Somehow I know you're still there
Send me, please, some peace of mind
Take away this pain

I can't wait (I can't wait)
I can't wait (I can't wait)
I can't wait any longer (can't wait any longer)
I can't wait
I can't wait (I can't wait)
I can't wait for you

Holy Mother, hear my cry
I've cursed your name a thousand times
I've felt the anger running through my soul
All I need is a hand to hold

Oh, I feel the end has come
No longer my legs will run
You know I would rather be
In your arms tonight

When my hands no longer play
My voice is still, I fade away
Holy Mother, then I'll be
Lying in, safe within your arms

ආරක්ෂක ලේකම් වරයා එම ප්‍රකාශය කිරීමෙන් අනතුරුව මේවන විට පාස්කු ප්‍රහාරය සම්බන්ධයෙන් අත්අඩංගුවට ගත් කී දෙනෙකු නිදහස් වී ඇත්ද?

ආරක්ෂක ලේකම්ගේ වගකීමෙන් යුතුව කරන ප්‍රකාශ සහ එහි භාවිතාව (පාස්කු ඉරුදින ත්‍රස්ත ප්‍රාහරය සම්බන්ධයෙන්)
2020 වසරේ මැයි මාස 18 වැනිදා "දෙරණ" රුපවාහිනී නාලිකාවේ විකාශය වූ 360 වැඩසටහනේ ආරක්ෂ ලේකම්වරයා කරන ප්‍රකාශයක් සහ අද ඔහු විසින් කරනු ලබන ප්‍රකාශ දෙකක් පහතින් දැක්වේ.
ඔහු සඳහන් කරන පරිදි 2020-05-18 වැනිදා වන විට පාස්කු ප්‍රහාරය සම්බන්ධයෙන් අත්අඩංගුවට ගෙන ඇති සෑම පුද්ගලයකුම එම ප්‍රහාරයට යම්කිසි ලෙස හෝ සම්බන්ධ බව වගකීමෙන් යුතු ප්‍රකාශයක් කරයි.
නමුත් ආරක්ෂක ලේකම් වරයා එම ප්‍රකාශය කිරීමෙන් අනතුරුව මේවන විට පාස්කු ප්‍රහාරය සම්බන්ධයෙන් අත්අඩංගුවට ගත් කී දෙනෙකු නිදහස් වී ඇත්ද?
පාස්කු බෝම්බ ප්‍රහාරය සිදුකළ පුද්ගලයාට අයත් තඹ කම්හලේ සේවය කල සේවකයින් 10 දෙනෙකු මීට මාස කිහිපයකට ඉහත නිදහස් විය.
මෑතකදී නිදහස් වූයේ කොළඹ ෂැන්ග්‍රිලා හෝටලයේ මරාගෙන මැරෙන බෝම්බ ප්‍රාහරය සිදුකළ තැනත්තාගේ පියාය.
මෙම ප්‍රකාශය කිරිමේන් අනතුරුව රියාජ් බදියුදීන්ව ඇප මත නිදහස් කළ බව මතකයේ ඇත්තේ ඔහු සම්බන්ධයෙන් ප්‍රකාශයක් කළ එවකට පොලිස් මාධ්‍ය ප්‍රකාශක ලෙස කටයුතු කළ ජාලිය සේනාරත්න මහතා පරීක්ෂණ සිදුකරන අතර වාරයේ ඔහු සම්බන්ධයෙන් කළ ප්‍රකාශයක් හේතුවෙනි.
පසුව එම ප්‍රකාශය නිවරදි කරන්නට එවකට ආරක්ෂක රාජ්‍ය අමාත්‍යවරයා පාර්ලිමේන්තුවේදී පවා ප්‍රකාශයක් සිදුකළ බව මතකය.
මේ ආරක්ෂක ලේකම් වරයා වගකීමෙන් යුතුව අත්ඩංගුවට ගත් සියලුදෙනා ප්‍රාහරයට සම්බන්ධ බවට කළ ප්‍රකාශයකට පසුව නිදහස් වූ කිහිප දෙනෙකු පමණි.
එසේනම් ඔහුගේ වගකීමෙන් යුතුව කරනු ලබන ප්‍රකාශ වල විශ්වසනීයත්වය කෙතරම්ද කියා සැක සහිතය.
පරීක්ෂණ සිදුකරන අතරවාරයේ පාස්කු ඉරුදින ත්‍රස්ත ප්‍රාහරයට අත්අඩංගුවට ගත් පුද්ගලයකු ගැන ප්‍රකාශයක් කළ පොලිස් මාධ්‍ය ප්‍රකාශක ජාලිය සේනාරත්න මහතා මාරු කර යැවූවත් ආරක්ෂක ලේකම්වරයාට එසේ නොකරන්නේ ජනාධිපතිවරයා තවදුරටත් ඔහු ගැන විශ්වාසය තබා ඇති හෙයින් විය යුතුය.
තත්වය එසේ තිබියදී බොහෝ කලකට පසු පාස්කු ඉරුදින ත්‍රස්ත ප්‍රාහරය සම්බන්ධයෙන් මාධ්‍ය හමුවකදී ආරක්ෂක ලේකම් වරයා අද නැවත වතාවක් වගකීමෙන් යුතුව ප්‍රකාශයක් කරන ලදී.
ඒ ජනාධිපතිවරයා මෙම කුමන්ත්‍රණයට සම්බන්ධ බවට සමාජයේ මතයක් ගොඩනගන්නට දරන උත්සහයක් පසුබිම් කර ගනිමිනි
මෙම ප්‍රාහරයේ වින්දිතයින් හෝ කාදිනල් හිමිපාණන් හෝ කතෝලික සභාව හෝ කිසිඳු විටක පාස්කු දින කුමන්ත්‍රණයට වත්මන් ජනාධිපතිවරයා සම්බන්ධ බවට මතයක් හෝ ප්‍රකාශයක් ඉදිරිපත්කර නොමැති බව ආරක්ෂක ලේකම් වරයා නොදැනුවත්ව සිටියා විය නොහැකිය.
සෑම විටම කාදිනල් හිමිපාණන් ප්‍රමුඛ මෙහි වින්දිතයින් කියා සිටියේ කුමන්ත්‍රණය පිටුපස සිටින්නන් සොයාදෙන ලෙසය.
මෙය පැහැදිලි ලෙස කුමන්ත්‍රණයක් බව පළමුවෙන්ම සඳහන් කළේ පාස්කු ඉරුදින ප්‍රහාරය සම්බන්ධයෙන් පත්කළ ජනාධිපති කොමිෂන් සභාවේ වාර්තාවේ සඳහන් සියලුම සාක්ෂි සටහන් පරීක්ෂා කළ හිටපු නීතිපතිවරයා මිස අන්කිසිවකු නොවේ.
එබැවින් නැවත වතාවක් වගකීමෙන් යුතුව මෙය කුමන්ත්‍රණයක් නොවන බවට පැවසීම "වගකීම" යන වචනය හෑල්ලු කිරීමක් බව මට පෞද්ගලිකව හැඟීයයි.
වත්මන් ජනාධිපතිවරයා ජනාධිපතිවරණයට පෙර තම ප්‍රතිරූපය ගොඩනගා ගත්තේ ඔහු ආරක්ෂක ලේකම්වරයෙක්ව සිටියදී ඔහුගේ කල්ක්‍රියාව හේතුවෙනි.
නොමැතිනම් යුද පිටියකට සමාන කේක් ගෙඩි සාදා තමන් විසින්ම තමාව විශිෂ්ඨතම ලාංකිය පුත්‍රයා ලෙස පවසාගැනීමෙන් නොවන බව මාගේ විශ්වාසයයි.
රටේ ආරක්ෂක ලේකම්වරයාගේ වගකීම ජනතාව ආරක්ෂා කරමින් ඔවුන්ට සිදුවන අසාධාරණ වෙනුවෙන් පෙනී සිටීම බව මාගේ හැඟීමයි.
එම නිසා වගකීමෙන් එම වගකීම ඉටුකරන මෙන් කාරුණිකව ඉල්ලා සිටිමි.

IGP bragging about Easter investigation..! Answer these questions without subterfuge..!
-By Sunanda Deshapriya

(Lanka-e-News -04.Sep.2021, 5.45PM) IGP C.D. Wickramaratne made a special statement about the investigation on Easter Sunday attack a few days ago. His story is full of accusations against the police and those who do not want to be named.

The IGP inadvertently attacked the black flag protest held on the 27th Friday against the delay in bringing the real culprits of the Easter attack to justice. The statement was made to show that the campaign ade by the Catholic Church and other civil society groups, including Cardinal Malcolm Ranjith, to end the investigation into the Easter attacks and bring all those involved to justice is wrong.

Blaming himself..
-----------------------
It was this Wickramaratne who assumed duties as the Inspector General of Police from April 26, 2019, until Gotabhaya told him to take over the investigation into the Easter attacks. All sections of the police have been under his control since then. Secondly is to point out that DIG Ravi Seneviratne and SSP Shani Abeysekera, who conducted the investigation into the Easter attack were incorrect and to underestimate the evidence they found.

Thirdly is to remove the allegations against Nilantha Jayawardena, the head of the National Intelligence Service, and other high-ranking police officers who are now being held accountable for their failure to take appropriate action to prevent the Easter attacks. He stretches to point out that the CID failed to see the various armed activities carried out by the Saharan group as a single process.

Fourth is to create the impression that people like Muslim scholars were involved in the Easter attack. He goes on to say that people like lawyer Hejaz Hezbollah and poet Ahnaf Jazeem were indirectly responsible for the attack.

Less than a week following the Easter attacks, then IGP Pujitha Jayasundara work was suspended. Therefore, it was this Wickramaratne who assumed duties as the Inspector General of Police from April 26, 2019, claiming that the Easter attack investigation did not take place until Gotabaya told him. All sections of the police have been under his control since then.

Wickramaratne is also guilty..
-----------------------
The (Acting) IGP receives a daily report from the Police Special Bureau. According to the IGP, the report should also include the activities of the Saharan group. Why did IGP Wickremaratne fail to realize that an Islamic extremist group was operating in the area to match the criminal facts he received? Nilantha Jayawardena, the Chief of Intelligence at the National Security Council, has also made these allegations. Didn't the IGP have to put them together then?

If so, isn't IGP Wickramaratne also guilty as the Chief? It was from the investigation into the damage to the Mawanella Buddha statues the weapons belonging to the Saharan group were found in a camp in Wanathawilluwa. The connection between the events was beginning to show by then. Also, the then Chief of Terrorism Investigation Division IGP Nalaka Silva had obtained a warrant for Saharan's arrest.

Following that, DIG Nalaka Silva was imprisoned by a liar named Namal Kumara a stooge of President Sirisena, who appeared to be a pet of the present police, for plotting to assassinate Gotabhaya. Again Namal Kumara was also in the midst of anti-Muslim attacks that erupted after the Easter attacks.

Whose pet is Namal Kumara?

What does the IGP say about these incidents?

Army spies gave training in Saharan's camps.

According to the report of the Easter Commission of Inquiry, the weapons training at Saharan's camps was provided by two Sri Lanka Army spies. If that is the case how come these training camps were not reported to the Army Intelligence? In fact, the training camp was the activism of the Saharan group, which was not reported by police inspections or military intelligence. According to the report of the Easter Commission of Inquiry, two Sri Lanka Army spies were giving weapons training at these camps. If so, how come these training camps were not reported to the Army Intelligence? Wickramaratne who kept his mouth shut during 40 meetings

(Acting) IGP Wickramaratne had at least 40 discussions with the CID team led by Shani Abeysekera which investigated the Easter attacks. Informed sources say that he, as the then acting IGP he did not give any oral or written guidance during any of these discussions.

If there are any written instructions given by Wickramaratne, can he submit those?

Wickramaratne joined the police as a graduate and directly promoted to Assistant Superintendent of Police. That is to the National Intelligence Service. He has not prosecuted any grass-root level crimes and has not filed a single case in courts.

Gota is correct and the Catholic Church is wrong ..!
Now suddenly IGP Wickramaratne is being told that it is wrong to rush or set a time limit to complete investigations into such a crime. It appears to be a response to the black flag protests held last 21st.

However, it was none other than Gotabaya Rajapaksa who promised to expedite investigations into the Easter attacks as soon as he became President and punish the perpetrators regardless of rank. It was one of his main presidential promises.

Less than a month after taking office (December 3, 2019), President Rajapaksa summoned the commissioners of the Presidential Commission of Inquiry into the Easter attacks and called to expedite the investigations.

What happened to Major General's task force?
-----------------------
Less than three months after Gotabaya Rajapaksa came to power, a six - member task force was set up under then - Major General Jagath Alwis, the head of the National Intelligence Service, to expedite the investigation into the Easter attacks.

It has now been 18 months since the task force was formed and the IGP has not said a word about it. Is there anything new that the force has discovered through hasty investigations?

Is the task force at least functional?

Is the IGP now claiming that it is wrong for the President Gotabhaya to expedite the investigation into the Easter attacks?

Is the cardinal, the Catholic Church and the victims alone who make this request are wrong?

Isn't IGP Wickramaratne attacking the speedy prosecution demanded by the Catholic Church? The IGP implies it could take five to six years to complete the investigation.

Gotabhaya also promised to appoint a new commission of inquiry once he came to power. That has not yet happened.

Great liar..
-----------------------
IGP Wickramaratne's video statement indicates.“There was no need for international investigations into LTTE terrorism because the LTTE had no international connections”

The LTTE was at the forefront military organizations with an international network around the world. It raised funds and bought weapons abroad. Its spokespersons lived in France and England. It even had state-level relations with a number of African countries. The IGP said that there was no need for an international inquiry into such an organization. He goes on to say that there was no investigation into any international connections linked to the Easter attack until he took over the investigation at the behest of the President which is a bigger subterfuge.

Interpol chief arrived in Sri Lanka..
-----------------------
The Interpol chief met with Sri Lankan leaders and police chiefs on August 27, 2019.

According to the Interpol website, which is considered an international police force, an incident response team called the Incident Response Team (IRT) was deployed at the request of the Sri Lankan authorities immediately after the attack. Interpol's General Secretary J. Stoke arrived in Sri Lanka on August 27, 2019 and met with President Sirisena, Prime Minister Wickremasinghe and IGP Wickremaratne.

It was the first international investigation team to visit Sri Lanka after the Easter attacks. It also included a number of experts in the relevant fields.

Ahmed Milhan Hayatu, an Easter attacker, was arrested in a Middle Eastern country on a red warrant issued by Interpol. The information was provided by the team led by Shani Abeysekera who was conducting the investigation at that time

It was DIG Ravi Seneviratne, who was in charge of the CID then, He briefed the Interpol chiefs on their visit to Sri Lanka. How did IGP Wickramaratne forget all this now?

As Acting Inspector General of Police, Wickramaratne testified before the Presidential Commission of Inquiry into the Easter attacks. In that testimony, he did not in any way blame the police officers who conducted the investigation at the time, as he said in his video story.

Outraging lies about CID...
-----------------------
Wickramaratne now says that CID officials were unable to go into depth about the Easter attack because they were anxious to end the investigation abruptly. This is also a blatant subterfuge.

Both DIG Ravi Seneviratne and SSP Shani Abeysekera, who testified before the Easter Commission, said the investigation was not over. Ravi Seneviratne said he could not find the invisible hand behind the Easter attackers before he retired. Shani Abeysekera said the investigation was not over and still there is a threat to national security.

Now the Attorney General's Department has arrested all those who have been charged in connection with the Easter attack, according to investigations conducted by the CID at the time.

Questions to be answered by the IGP..
-----------------------
1. Following Wickramaratne apppoited as the Inspector General of Police he transferred about 20 CID officers who conducted the investigation to other divisions. At that time, the investigations were not over. What progress has been made under IGP Wickramaratne regarding the following matters which they were investigating?

2. Appearing under the pseudonym 'Sonic Sonic', a police sub-inspector had links with the Easter attackers under the direction of which unit.

3. Why was the investigation into a soldier who had found links with the Saharan group following a phone number provided by an international intelligence service was stopped?

4. What was the motive behind the fake investigation reports linking the LTTE regarding the murder of two police officers in Vavunathivu killed by the Saharan group on November 31st during the 2018 illegal Sirisena Rajapaksa regime? Why five fake investigative reports compiled falsely linking the Vavuathivu murders of the police officers to the LTTE given to the Army Intelligence and the National Intelligence Service led by Nilantha Jaywardhana?

5. Who was behind sending police dogs to the house of Kadirmathambi Irajakumaran alias Ajanthan, who was arrested following a coat found three days after the Vavuathivu murder? How did they find a coat that was not wet even after three rainy days?

6. How did Gotabhaya Rajapaksa, a civilian at the time, learn that the assassination was not linked to the LTTE, as the Mawbima newspaper recently reported (Anura Kumara's parliamentary speech), despite five intelligence reports linking the killings to the LTTE? Gotabhaya Rajapaksa has written a note to Ravi Seneviratne, the head of the CID, in his official diary stating that Gotabaya had told him so.

7. How Army intelligence officers managed to get to the home of the attacker Jameel, who was ready to attack the Taj Samudra Hotel, hours after learning that he was not dead.

8. Whether an intelligence officer request the ISIS to accept responsibility of the attack bearing Podi Saharan in Matale.

In addition, IGP Wickramaratne has several other questions to answer..
1. In the IGP's video he blames the CID, but does not say a word about the National Intelligence Service and its chief who received information about the attack and did not take appropriate action. Why ?

2. DIG Nilantha Jayawardena, who was the head of the National Intelligence Service at the time of the attack, is investigating whether the data on his mobile phone and computer was deleted, which could have contained vital information.

3. Is there an investigation against DIG Nilantha Jayawardena, who was the head of the National Intelligence Service at the time of the attack, who deleted important data on his mobile phone and computer which could have contained vital information.

4. According to Sarath Weerasekara, the Minister in charge of Police in June 2021, despite the information received prior to the attack, why no action has been taken so far on the indictments filed by the Public Service Commission against the relevant police officers for not preventing the attack.Why? It was in February 2021 that the indictments against eight persons, including three Senior DIGs and two Senior Superintendents of Police, were drafted and submitted to the National Police Commission. But no action has been taken yet. Why?

5. These senior police officers request the Mahanayake Theras to intervene to prevent the National Police Commission from taking action on these charge sheets. Why not take action against those senior officers as an act of indiscipline?

6. Despite the Easter Commission stating that former Defense Secretary Hemasiri Panranando, former IGP Pujith Jayasundara, former National Intelligence Chief Sisira Mendis and former State Intelligence Chief Nilantha Jayawardena have committed criminal offenses, Why only former IGP Poojitha Jayasundara and former Defense Secretary Hemasiri Fernando have been arrested and prosecuted. Why not others?

7. Why IGP Wickremaratne's video speech does not say anything of the report of the Presidential Commission of Inquiry into the Easter attack?

8. Whether the IGP will implement the recommendations made in that report or not?

The story was written by Suresh Saleh..
-----------------------
If IGP Wickramarathe accuses lawyer Hejaz Hisbullah who an intellectual who was involved for the Easter attack we should note this down for the reference of IGP Wickramarathe.

There is nothing stated about the Easter attack in indictment (charge sheet) given to lawyer Hejaz Hezbollah.

Ahnaf Jazeem has not yet been charged.

In fact, IGP Wickramaratne has read out the charge sheet against him. It could not have been written by him. Unofficial sources state that he was written to make the speech by the Director General of the State Intelligence Service (SIS), Major General Suresh Saleh.
