degradation of "yaha palanaya" continues at furious pace.
police power was abused by ranil's backdoor government, when polticos, athuraliye rathana and ravi karunanayaka, raided upfa election propaganda center at jubilee post, nugegoda, with police in tow. and illegally confiscated communication equipment.
why is communication equipment (or in sinhala video version of report, mere "audio broadcast equipment") in an election office "suspicious"? quite normal one would think. was there even a search warrant?
no, this was no police investigating a crime, but abuse of police by two corrupt politicos, in an attempt to deprive opposition ability to communicate.
perhaps they were frustrated, and this is confirmed by their remarks in video, that all those fabulous riches they claimed rajapaksas have amassed, turned out to be a mirage? let's show a few loud speakers for election work, as an example of corruption! in another similar incident they showed a rusty plane without wings as ill gotten gains. lol.
is anyone fooled by this? is this any different from attacking an election rally stage? a poltico under mahinda who did that, was arrested before election. will ranil allow arrest of rathana & ravi? don't count on that. failure to arrest them for this violence and abuse of power, will again indicate, who was and is, acting more democratically.
all, except willing fools like indi.ca, paid to forget reality and parrot propaganda from ranil's media, know that for ranil and cohort, "good governance", is a mere slogan.
previous yaha palanaya scores:
- threats of persecution for exercising freedom of expression.
- threats to chief justice, rule of law, and due process.
- sleazebags & thugs like ravi karunanayake, mangala samaraweera, rishard bathiudeen, etc, etc, in cabinet.
- showing contempt for people's wishes, harin ousts elected gov in uva through backroom maneuvering.
