YOSHITHA TO BE COURT MARTIALED?

'Speculation' is rife that Lieutenant Yoshitha Rajapaksa, the second son of former President Mahinda Rajapaksa would be summoned before a military court in connection with the abuse of his position in violation of the Navy Act, authoritative defence sources said.

The Navy conducted a full scale investigation into the charges leveled against Rajapaksa and the investigation report has already been referred to the President. Navy sources added that further action would be taken against Rajapaksa based on the President's decision.

"However, according to the findings of the inquiry, there is enough room to believe that the President will decide in favour of a Court

Martial. Multiple allegations against the Navy officer and alleged violations of the Navy Act were examined during the inquiry," a senior Navy officer involved in the investigation told the Daily News.

.Yoshitha Rajapaksa was accused of having held the position of Chairman of a private company, Carlton Sports Network (CSN), while being a military officer.

According to legal opinion holding such a position while being a military officer is against military law.

"Another allegation leveled against him is that he had allegedly undertaken many foreign tours, without obtaining written permission from the Navy. Not even a Navy Commander has enjoyed such privileges," sources said.

An investigation is to be carried out as to how Lieutenant Yoshitha had allegedly gone overseas nearly 30 times. At that period not even top officers had undertaken foreign trips without written permission.

Sources said that the findings of the internal investigations carried out by the Navy have proved that a large amount of money had allegedly been spent by the previous government for the foreign tours and training programmes of Yoshitha Rajapaksa.

"If found guilty before a military court, Yoshitha will be punished," the sources said.

Everybody knows that the entire Rajapaksa clan, after the "war' went on the rampage. That's the fact. No one did anything till My3 with all his weaknesses showed rare courage to take-on this goliath. My question is, what were the large number of Navy officers of higher rank, the Judiciary, the State machinery all doing over the last several years?! Are we, as tax payers not entitled to ask questions from them also?? Why are we sand-bagging My3 in this manner??

All wrong doers, immaterial of who they and which political party they belong to must be punished to deter repeat of such behaviour.

this is rubbish,he should be prosecuted put in Gallows for the murder Of Thajudeen.bloody gutless national government

He was then the Prince of the corrupt regime, second in line to the throne. Now he is a nobody.

bravo!

THE POPULAR ELIEF IS THA HE EX PRESIDENT HAS OBTAINED A VOW FROM THE PRESENT PRESIDENT TO PARDON EVERY RAJAPAKSHA SIBLING FROM LEGAL PROSECUTION.HE HAD PLEADED CRIED AND WEPT N TE CURRENT PRSIDENT RAW AS HE IS AND WAS HAD FALLEN INTO HIS "YANTHARA" MAYAMA.

All very trival charges. No meaning. Only political vendetta!

when? stop talking and take action

Definitely he should be punished for the corruptions. Also he should be stripped off for getting the job in Navy from the back door without having the basic qualifications. Not only him but his father too should be sent to jail.

nothing will happen...to Rajapaksha family as long as,Ranil stays in power...President got no backbone to takes firm decision.......both are not running the country,but ruining it...

But his dad wad the chief of armed forces. His dad above cmmanders. Therefore nothing can be done according to my opinion. However, owning a company is to be argued.

Safe bet will be nothing will happen anther bit trumpet blowing to keep the masses happy for anther 30 minutes.

What about Roshan Goonathilake lowering education standards for his son? http://www.thesundayleader.lk/archive/20090405/spotlight-3.htm
