|Bodhu Bala sena terrorist group totally destroys a Christian holy statue – the true inside story leaks out|
(Lanka-e-News-30.Jan.2013, 11.45PM) A valuable statue of holy blessed ‘heavenly mother’ at the Seethawaka St. Mary’s church , Avisawella which was erected to commemorate the 150th jubilee had been completely destroyed by the Bodhu Bala Sena terrorist group.
This statue is 13 feet high and built at a cost of Rs. 6 lakhs by Christian devotees and completed on 27th January 2013. The most distressing and deplorable feature about this wanton destruction is , on the 28th January even before a day had elapsed after so much labor, love and money were spent on the construction and completed , it was totally devastated by this terror group setting fire to it.
Though complaints had been made to the Avisawella police in this connection , no action has been taken so far. SL Defense secretary Gotabaya the one and only of his kind in the world for notoriety has given instructions to the police not to expose this and to suppress the investigations.
Might we recall that lately this same Bodu Bala Sena terrorist group broke into a Hotel and stopped an event that was in progress. According to reports reaching Lanka e news inside information division , though this Bodu Bala sena ostensibly is led by some monks , it is truly operated by Gotabaya Rajapakse.
Some groups selected from the Army and Navy intelligence divisions are masquerading as civilians. One youth made a solemn confession to the Lanka e news inside information division that they are receiving instructions directly from Gotabaya.
Based on reports reaching Lanka e news inside information division , this Bodu Bala sena terrorist group is being operated by Gotabaya even keeping the State intelligence unit in the dark. Recently , they had held a most secretive and clandestine meeting where future plans were discussed.
It is noteworthy that the present regime which appoints sham Select Committees to falsely inquire into the harm inflicted on other religious followers is itself operating an extremist terrorist Organization . While the constitution expressly guarantees freedom for every citizen to follow his own religion , and if somebody is transgressing this , might we point out , it is the duty of the Govt. to enforce the law against the transgressor irrespective of his position or political affiliations ,rather than appoint bogus Select Committees.

|Conspiracy to kill 257 Tamil detainees in CRP ?|
(Lanka-e-News-30.Jan.2013, 11.45PM) 257 Tamil prisoners who were in the Colombo remand prison (CRP) had been transferred to the Welikade new Magazine prison for no known reason , according to reports reaching Lanka e news. These transfers had been done during the last two days and completed by yesterday noon.
This kind of action had never taken place in the remand prisons in its history. These detainees are suspects only and not convicts who are in remand for long periods without any charges being filed or remanded on court orders. No charges have yet been filed against many of them . It is to be noted they are all Tamil detainees and in remand custody.
Since the Magazine prison is where the convicts are , and is already lacking space and facilities , suspicions are mounting among the prisoners and other prison officers whether this transfer of prisoners without any reason into the Magazine overcrowding it is a conspiracy.
These transfers have been effected by the CRP Prison Authority in charge Emil Ranjan a pro Gota Gorakaya .Chandana Ekanayake the Prison Authority who is in charge of the Magazine prison is a pro Gota fanatic. Being the Chairman of the athletics committee , even when Gota goes for physical exercises this stooge .joins him in the walk. When inquiries were made from this scourge of a stooge about the transfers, he had said ‘ These are LTTE members . If there occurs an incident like previously , they will all die’. It will not be out of place if we reveal here, Gota recently sent the forces unlawfully to the Welikade prison , and created a riotous situation , when some prisoners whom he wanted killed were murdered , and some others whom he wanted released were abducted and taken away with impunity.

The United States is sure that India will support a country-specific resolution sponsored by it in the coming session of the United Nations Human Rights Council in Geneva.
The U.S. representatives revealed here that it had “decided to sponsor a procedural resolution at the March 2013 session of the U.N. Human Rights Council along with international partners”.
U.S. Deputy Assistant Secretary of State James Moore told select media here that “the resolution will be straightforward; it will be a procedural resolution, and it will build on the 2012 resolution which called on Sri Lanka to do more to promote reconciliation and accountability. The resolution will ask the government of Sri Lanka to follow through on its own commitments to its people, including the implementation of the LLRC [Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation Commission] recommendations.” Responding to a question, a transcript of which has been posted on the U.S. Embassy website, Mr. Moore said he was sure that India and all the countries that voted with the U.S. last year would follow the same lead this year: “And the reason there would be another resolution this coming March is because we and the other 23 members of the Human Rights Council who voted for the resolution in 2012 believe that the government of Sri Lanka needs to fulfil the commitment that it’s already made through the LLRC to its people,” he said.
“So this new resolution would reflect our support for those commitments, our continued support. And for the people of Sri Lanka as they continue to face these important issues,” he said.
Official confirmation of the Indian stand was not available. But it is reliably learnt that the issue did figure in all the recent high-level engagements. Sri Lanka has responded to the U.S. announcement, saying that it will defend its rights record. Significant progress has been made, it rcontended, in implementing the recommendations of the LLRC, which went into the causes of the war with the Tamil Tigers, the Hindu reports.
