COLOMBO(News 1st) – Parliamentarian Vijith Wijayamuni Soyza expressed these views speaking at a rally of the New Democratic front in Kiribathgoda yesterday (October 23).
Parliamentarian Vijith Wijayamuni Soyza:
“We are not scared of Gotabaya, We are not scared of Mahinda, we are not their colonials. I was the first deputy Minister of Prisons, then education, wildlife after that, then I was put to the schools and then again to wildlife, afterwards it was the prison department.
Although I was the Minister, the secretary to the Ministry follows the orders of Basil Rajapaksa. 70 vehicles were brought down. Basil brought down those vehicles. For what? To get a commission.
There is an elephant registry in Sri Lanka. These people hid this. During the rule of the Rajapaksa’s, they thought that elephants should be kept as pets. They killed elephant cows in the forest and stole their calves.
They sold elephants for Rs 8 to 10 million. They hid the elephant registry and did all of this. I said that there is no elephant registry, but the director-general of wildlife says that the registry is there.
I told the director-general to get a book for the registration of elephants instead of writing it down on A4 sheets. They didn’t want to do that because the Rajapaksa’s were stealing elephants.
They hid the elephant registry and stole elephants. Although these slaves do not know about these things we have all the details of the Rajapaksa’s.
They went in search of the sword of Prince Sapumal. They searched all across the country. They brought down machines to scan it and fixed it on aircraft and scanned the country.
They marked out some locations, There were people in these regions, farmers, and people who take care of elephants because these areas are close to villages. So they sent the ‘grease yakku’. Do you remember?
They went searching for this for a long time and went to the Naga Viharaya in Kotte. There they killed two Theros. We do not know if they took the sword or not. They did not stop there, next they broke into the museum, they took the valuable items from there. These items are invaluable. They are our national assets. They robbed all of this.”
