Bogollagama should be stripped of Governor portfolio based on PRECIFAC findings

[TamilNet, Thursday, 01 February 2018, 22:02 GMT]
Does the SL President Maithiripala Sirisena have the guts to remove the colonial Governor of Eastern Province, Chandrasekara Rohitha Bandara Bogollagama, from his position based on the findings of the Presidential Commission of Inquiry to investigate and inquire into Serious Acts of Fraud, Corruption and Abuse of Power, State Resources and Privileges (PRECIFAC), questioned Tamil legal activists from Trincomalee. “The question is whether those who are named by the commission be ever prosecuted in a Court of Law of genocidal Sri Lanka and whether those who are holding key positions under the SL State today step down until their cases are disposed of,” a veteran legal activist from Trincomalee commented.

Mr Bogollagama a was the foreign minister of the SL State during the times of the final war and was working closely with the external actors in the war against the nation of Eezham Tamils.

As the Governor of East, he is collaborating with the external imperial powers as well as with the SL State-sponsored Sinhala Buddhist establishment, which is advancing Sinhalicisation of traditional Tamil villages in the East.

Bogollagama wife, Mrs Deepthi Bogollagama, was recently exposed for her threatening behaviour against Tamil devotees at the hill-top of Maththa’la-malai in the militarized Champoor region in Moothoor East in Trincomalee.

Mr Bogollagama is the 9th party of 13 in the investigation into Rathna Lanka Company Ltd. & Avant Garde Maritime Services Ltd. The Commission has proposed criminal actions to be prosecuted by the SL Attorney General and the Bribery Commission against all the parties.

The PRECIFAC was mainly investigating corporate exploitations connected to South. However, some of the military linked economic abuses connected to Gotabhaya Rajapaksa has also focused on Rajapaksa friendly commanders such as Major General Mahinda Hathurusinghe, the former SL Army Commander of Jaffna for monetary abuses connected to the removal of metal from the KKS cement factory and Major General Palitha Fernando, who headed the SL state-owned Rakna Lanka company.

The PRECIFAC has found evidence of fraud 34 persons including former SL President Mahinda Rajapaksa and his siblings Gotabhaya Rajapaksa who was the Defence Secretary and Basil Rajapaksa the ‘Economic Minister’ of the previous regime.

The findings by the PRECIFAC were handed over to the Secretary General of SL Parliament on the 17th of January 2018.
