Oklahoma, 02 January, (

Danuna Tillakeratne has already fled USA to hide from USA authorities and Sri Lankan authorities

It has been brought to light that the MidFirst bank in Oklahoma is involved in sponsoring Gen (retired) Sarath Fonseka’s daughter Apsara Fonseka & son- in- law Danuna Tillakeratne for the Green Card.

The hard working staff at MidFirst bank is very much distressed at the moment, because of the fact that MidFirst Bank and the immigration lawyer (Douglas Stump) handling the green card process for the Fonseka’s have not conducted an investigation or taken any legal action of the illegal activities of Danuna Tilakeratne, in spite of being well informed of Danuna Tilakeratne’s direct involvement in such illegal activities. They also have failed to provide information to Law enforcement authorities.

Two H1 Visas extensions were granted to Danuna Tilakeratne by submitting false information to Home land Security as well as to the Immigration in USA through a company called Satpro Communication.

In 2005, Satpro H1B visa for one Network Consultant/Specialist, salary $17.05 hourly good from 10/2005 - 9/30/2008. Address 5850 NW 50th St, Oklahoma City.

Open letter to Fonseka from Sydney: Use your skills for a worthy cause

Dear Genaral Fonseka

It has come to our attention as members of the Sri Lankan Diaspora in Sydney that your remarks in the “Sunday Leader” regarding the fact that the final stage of the war has created risky situation to the people of Sri Lanka. Although you tried to clarify the remarks, it was too late to correct the facts as detrimental comments spread all over the world within a short period of time by damaging Sri Lanka’s image.

We also noted your claim that the war against the LTTE was won due to your leadership as the Commander of the Army. Although we appreciate your leadership for advancing the army to the wining position, it is our opinion that your commanding position was heavily supported by the Air Force , Navy, Police and other military forces together with other national and international forces which were in place, without your knowledge as the Army Commander.

According to the structure of the Department of Defence in Sri Lanka, it is a known factor that Secretary of the Department has a vital role in co-ordinating all forces under the ministry and providing necessary resources to the relevant areas. We believe that Gotabaya Rajapaksha provided strong co-ordinating leadership at the war providing all necessary resources including aircrafts, ships, vehicles and personals through his department under guidance of President Mahinda Rajapaksa as the Minister for Defence in Sri Lanka. The credit for the victory in defeating terrorism should go to all who worked together at that time including members and leaders of all forces including yourself, secretary, president members of the international community as well.

It is also worthwhile to draw your attention that some foreign parliamentarians gave strong political back up for creating a peaceful situation in Sri Lanka by strongly condemning the LTTE as one of the most notorious terrorist organizations in the world. In this sense I need to remind you that Senator Steve Hutchins in Federal Government of Australia made consistent speeches in federal floor supporting Sri Lanka, to make it a peaceful nation for all kind of people in the world. As an Army commander at the time of the war you should appreciate President Mahinda Rajapaska for leading supporters of the international community towards weakening its

Former Sri Lanka Navy Commander claims damage from opposition presidential candidate

Dec 29, Colombo: Adding to the political drama in the run up to the presidential elections, former Navy Commander is claiming damages from the former Army commander for defamation.

Former Navy Commander Admiral Wasantha Karannagoda has sent a letter demanding 500 million rupees in damage for defamation from the opposition presidential candidate and former military chief General Sarath Fonseka, the Government Media Unit reported.

The former Navy Chief says a statement made by the former military chief at an interview with a private television channel on the 24th of December 2009 is per se defamatory of him.

According to a report by the Government media, in the letter of demand sent to General Fonseka, Admiral Karannagoda has claimed that a remark made by the General about him was malicious and has in fact tarnished his good name, reputation and public image, thereby causing him irreparable loss and damage.

The demanded sum of Rs. 500 million should be paid within 14 days and in the event of failing and/or neglecting to pay and settle the said sum legal action will be instituted against General Fonseka to recover the said sum, the letter said.

It has often been reported that the former commanders had personal rivalries and did not have an amicable relationship during their tenures.

There is no credible war crimes case against Sri Lanka

Professor Rohan Gunaratna is Head of the International Centre for Political Violence and Terrorism Research at the Nanyang Technological University in Singapore and the author of several books on the Sri Lankan conflict reiterates that the LTTE international itself is under mounting pressure, which should be capitalized by the government and the opposition coming together to dismantaling the outfit completely. He also notes however that while pragmatic LTTE leaders overseas are keen to handover the LTTE assets to the Sri Lankan government, the faction led by Nediyawan are fighting to continue subversion, destabilization, and terrorism. “It is paramount for the Sri Lankan government and the people to work closely with LTTE leaders willing to reject violence and embrace co-existence. In the larger interest of reconciliation, the Sri Lankan government should provide immunity to those leaders willing to help Sri Lanka to recover from three decades of conflict.”

Professor Rohan Gunaratna

•What did the UN do when LTTE ethnically cleansed tens of thousands of Muslims, repeatedly massacred thousands of poor Sinhala and Muslim villagers?

•The process of mapping LTTE assets by the international intelligence community is nearing completion and the process of acquisition will continue in the next few years.

•Merchant Vessel (MV) Princess Christanta was acquired from an Asian country by a special team dispatched by Secretary Defence Gotabhaya Rajapaksa.

•The government and the parliamentary opposition must unite to dismantle the LTTE international network.

•To sustain peace in Sri Lanka, Ponniah Anadarajah, a double accountant needs to be tracked and detained.

Q:UNP MP Palitha Range Bandara last week challenged the government to provide proof about the vessel “Princess Christanta,” to confirm whether it was really an LTTE vessel or belonged to a private company. He claims that he had information about the vessel as one that had been purchased in Jakarta, Indonesia, through the mediation of a Sri Lankan Naval Officer. How do you compare these allegations with information available to you?

Fonseka - Weerawansa - Lalkantha - in Action

Fonseka’s Contingency Plan-2, to take over the country is ready

By K.T.Rajasingham

Colombo, 29 December, (
In case Sarath Fonseka is defeated in the forthcoming Presidential election, there is a plan to take over the country by force, it is reliably learnt. The Contingency Plan - 2, that has now come to the fore, is to be put into operation just immediately after the elections results are announced on 27th January 2010, reliable sources say.

According to the plan -2, faithful soldiers are to surround the Temple Trees, the official residence of President Mahinda Rajapaksa, arrest the President and take him to a secret hideout. Also the plan includes a move to arrest and mercilessly kill Gotabaya Rajapaksa, Defence Secretary and other members of the President’s family.

Once the country is taken over in a bloody coup, those Army Attaches who are posted in several Sri Lankan Embassies overseas will assume position as Country’s Ambassadors and negotiate with America and European Union countries for the recognition of the new regime that took over the country.

As prelude to the bloody take over report emerging out of Colombo, it is revealed that Janatha Vimukthi Perumuna, the Marxist oriented pro-Sinhalese party has completed the first round of the house to house campaign in support of Sarath Fonseka’s candidature on one side and also gauged those who remain confidential to him, by meeting the retired Army soldiers, deserters, volunteer force members and one third of the regular soldiers.

Guttila-Musila Re-enactment - One who is ungrateful to his appointer will surely be ungrateful to his electors.

Dilrook Kannangara

The Guththila-Musila story is a popular Buddhist Jataka story. Guttila was a musician par excellence serving king Brahmadatta in the North Indian city of Benares. Musila was an ambitious young man keen on learning the Veena. But when Musila approached Guttila, he was refused. Undeterred, Musila stays in Guttila’s house and attends to his blind parents. Consequently, Guttila agrees to teach him. At first Musila faithfully learns. However, once he attained competency he challenges not only Guttila but also his career. Instead of performing at his native city of Udeni, Musila decides to perform in Benares, Guttila’s own city. Without stopping at that he demands from the king that he should replace Guttila. The king arranges a contest. After an epic performance Guttila emerges the better of the two. Along with it people come to know how ungrateful and narrow minded Musila had been and evict him from the kingdom. As Buddhist teachings are eternal, the relevance of this Jataka story is also everlasting. In fact the Guttila-Musila drama is re-enacted in Sri Lanka today!

It was HE Mahinda Rajapaksa under the instructions of Gotabhaya Rajapaksa (his brother) who appointed Sarath Fonseka to the post of Army Commander in 2005 just 12 days to go for his retirement. It is said that at first the President had objected to Gotabaya’s recommendation because Fonseka had a multitude of offences concerning morality. However, after his brother’s repeated instructions, the President had agreed. Before long, Fonseka displayed his inadequacies. While the President was trying hard to sustain Indian support for the war, which was critical, Fonseka made a scandalous comment against some senior Indian politicians. At the height of the war, he called Tamil Nadu politicians jokers. It was such an unintelligent statement and the government had to immediately apologise on behalf of him to retain critical Indian support. He didn’t stop at that. He made another unwise statement to a Canadian newspaper. He said that he believed that Sri Lanka belonged to the Sinhalas. His statement was widely criticised as being racist but the government stood by him and cleared his name and the good name of the nation while the war was raging.

Radar- Gate: Kickbacks to Foneska’s Danuna in China Radar Deal: Eight Questions To The General

By K.T.Rajasingham
Colombo, 27 December, (

The China Radar deal punctures the claim.

In fact, the deal also raises several serious questions, which the former army chief alone can reply.

1. What was the rationale to reject the Raytheon offer to refurbish the existing radars?
2. Did any technical committee evaluate the Raytheon offer? If so, was the offer found technically sound?
3. Did Raytheon guarantee that after refurbishment the ANTPQ -36 radars would get fresh lease of effectiveness?
4. What was the justification to go in for China radars?
5. Was there any technical evaluation before the government signed a deal with the Chinese supplier?
6. Was the army or government aware of the presence of middleman, Hicorp, a company of army chief’s son-in-law?
7. Did the Chinese radars function effectively during the Wanni War?
8. Did the CID question Danuna Tilakaratne in connection with radar and other deals where in he and Hicorp figure

General Fonseka - has to answer our questionsBy now it has become a set routine for Presidential candidate Sarath Fonseka to deny any wrong doing as army commander.

But his every denial prompts Asian Tribune to dig deep into his past and unearth something to unsettle him. Yet, instead of offering his side, the retired general goes into an overdrive to run down Asian Tribune in interviews to various Sinhala publications.

Why he is not coming forward to articulate his denial in the Asian Tribune itself remains a puzzle. Is it because politicians don’t generally like to send a rebuttal to publications as the editors have the inherent right to put each sentence of the denial under a microscope and juxtapose the denials with the original allegations.

Media pundits and commentators aver that the former army chief is not serving his own cause by not using AT columns to put forth his side.

The non-denial through Asian Tribune is not a disincentive to AT though.

PHR is calling for Obama administration’s Department of Justice to investigate why the Bush administration impeded an FBI criminal probe of the alleged Dasht-e-Leili massacre.
