(Lanka-e-New - 15.Aug.2017, 11.45PM) In the incident in which ‘The Nation’ newspaper former editor Keith Noyahr was abducted and subjected to cruelty , brutality and assault , since the victim could not be present at the identification parade , the suspect army Major Prabath Seevali Bandaranaike Dissanayake Bulathwatte was enlarged on bail. Not enough the criminal being released on bail , he is also going to be appointed again to a high ranking post of the army’s intelligence division located at Ambalangoda based on reports reaching Lanka e news .
This suspect was not only involved in the Keith Noyahr criminal assault and cruelty case but also against whom there are charges of assault committed on two more journalists when he was in charge of the illegal para military operations in Colombo that was launched by Gotabaya then for the purpose of attacking and killing journalists.
It is obvious if officers like major Bulathwatte who acted in violation of the laws are taken back to the army’s intelligence division , that can only mean more disaster for the country and the forces because he has other criminal charges in addition to these crimes afore-stated………
The Military police had to take action then against this major for unlawfully employing the army ‘s soldiers to build his house at Kandy. He was also involved in an illicit sexual affair with a female army lieutenant Chamila . Besides , he was caught when he was carrying on an illicit sexual relationship with the wife of one of his batch mates. He was also caught red handed when using the army vehicles unlawfully for his private purposes.
Though Bulathwatte was involved in a spate of criminal activities, but because he enjoyed the patronage of equally or more criminal bosses Gotabaya and Hendavitharne at that time , he was saved and safeguarded.
Hence , if the present government is to provide opportunities again by re appointing him to a high ranking post in the army’s intelligence division , it will be tantamount to the government slitting its own throat.
