(Lanka-e-News - 20.Dec.2020, 11.30PM) On the 9th of December Gampaha high court judge Nimal Ranaweera rejected the bail application filed by the former director of CID Shani Abeysekara who was remaded unjustly, and the sub inspector Sugath Mendis who refused to give false evidence against Shani and uphelded their remand custody. The legal community is amazed and the law abiding community is angry over Nimal Ranaweera's decision which completely disregard the existing law in Sri Lanka.
Nimal Ranaweera said that the verdict would be given on the 7th but the verdict was given on the 9th as he took a leave on the 7th. Meanwhile, on the 7th the Attorney General had submitted a medical report on Shani Abeysekera to the plaintiff Ranaweera. It said nothing else but Shani was currently infected from Kovid-19 and he had suffered a heart attack in the meantime. According to the medical report, Shani Abeysekera has been receiving clinical treatment as a heart patient for a long time. In a bail case, submitting a medical report by the Attorney General is allowing the judge to grant bail by considerin the medical facts because a heart patient with a minor offence will not be remanded.
However, denying the bail application on the 9th, Judge Nimal Ranaweera said that he had taken consideration about the medical report submitted by the Attorney General. However if bail had not been granted with such 'consideration', Nimal Ranaweera would have concluded that the medical report submitted by the Attorney General was a forged one.
Crimes alleged against Shani Abeysekara are accused of absurdity. He is alleged for influencing the witnesses of the case of former DIG Vass Gunawardena and his son who is currently on gallows for the killing of businessmen Shyam's. During the search of Vass Gunawardena's house, firearms including the T-56 firearm used for Shiam's murder were found and the officers who carried out the raid had reported the matter to the court under Section 127 of the Penal Code. The officers testified at the trial and the evidence was not challenged in both appeals. Surprisingly, Shani is now accused of influencing witnesses after Gotabhaya's arrival, despite no statement of influencing witnesses in the High Court, the Court of Appeal or the Supreme Court.
It is a planetary record that the Sri Lankan Rajapaksa CCD (Colombo crimes division) has leveled absurd allegations against Shani at a time when the entire world agrees that the police cannot question a retrial after a Court of Appeal decision. The CCD, on the other hand, has filed charges under the Firearms Act. That is to say, the firearms found were in the possession of Shani. However, not a single firearm has been produced in court against Shani. This is the first and only case in the world where a man has been arrested and remanded on charges under the Firearms Act without a firearm. Nimal Ranaweera will go down in the Guinness Book of Records as the only plaintiff who did not grant bail to an accused in such an occult case.
Only the babies born yesterday and this sordid judge Nimal Ranaweera who denied bail are unaware that the Rajapaksas are taking revenge on Shani following their return by doing all these illegal conspiracies not due to anything else, but Shani carried out investigations into the Rajapaksas in strict compliance with the law.
Who is the judge Nimal Ranaweera who gave the above illegal verdict in such a pathetic situation? Why did he make such a bestial decision? Everything has been revealed when Lanka e News Judicial inside Service investigated the facts.
Nimal Ranaweera is a bosom boozing pal of Vas Gunawardene Plaintiff Nimal Ranaweera is a long time boozing friend of Vaas who merry and swill with Shyam assassin Vass Gunawardena. The evidence is as follows.
Prior to becoming the Deputy Inspector General of Police, Vass Gunawardena served as a Senior Superintendent of Police in Kurunegala. Nimal Ranaweera was also a Kurunegala District Judge at that time. The two got to know each other in Kurunegala. The two later became close friends. They often meet, eat and drink and sometimes join families to their favorite parties.
The friendship between the two was not revealed to outsiders. Later Vas Gunawardena was promoted to DIG and had to move from Kurunegala to another province. Then Vass Gunawardena invited his Kurunegala bosom pal entourage to a farewell party. Nimal Ranaweera also participated. Only then the friendship between District Judge Nimal Ranaweera and Vass Gunawardena was known to outsiders. The friendship between the two was so much that the Nimal Ranaweera organized a party for Vass' farewell. The party was attended by Vass Gunawardena and his entourage. It is on that day that the extent of the friendship between the two became confirmed to outsiders (The police officers who attended both of the above parties are still living in Sri Lanka; with evidence.)
Shani is seeking bail from such a thief judge in a case that was fabricated to release Vas Gunawardena and imprison Shani Abeysekera. If plaintiff Nimal Ranaweera is a righteous judge, he should have withdrawn from Shani's case without hearing as there is a conflict of interest. Sordid judge Ranaweera surreptitiously sat on the bench with the intention of helping his friend and not bailing out Shani. That's why even the attorney general's medical report too was thrown in the trash. We do not know whether the police officers who knew the connection between this judge and Vass Gunawardena informed Shani's lawyers about this. If the lawyers had known that, Nimal Ranaweera would have had the opportunity to oppose the trial at the outset. But unfortunately that did not happen.
This Nimal Ranaweera is a man not at all fit to become a judge. In no other country has such a judge been able to come this far. We say this because there have been reports of abuse during his tenure as a magistrate. Such a major event is as follows.
His second appointment was as the Dambulla Magistrate. The justice ministry had approved plans to renovate the official magistrate quarters, funds were allocated funds, and a contractor was selected. However Nimal Raaweera and his wife wanted to make the house according to their plans. Accordingly, he pressured the contractor to do so. However the contractor could not change the building plans at his will as he cannot act in a way violating the agreements he siged with the Ministry of Justice. However, Nimal Ranaweera continued to pressure the contractor by showing his plaintiff power. He eventually threatened to jail the contractor. The contractor complained to the Ministry of Justice. At that time Suhada Gamlath was the Secretary to the Ministry of Justice. Suhada Gamlath suspended the renovation of the Magistrate's quarters. The official residence could not be renovated until Nimal Ranaweera moved from Dambulla.
Nimal Ranaweera was a person who committed such abuses when he started his career as a judge.
There are evidences that he was impartial when he was acting as the Polonnaruwa High Court Judge. One of the main cases is the case of the death of 'Weli Raju', a younger brother of former President Maithripala Sirisena. Weli Raju was killed when he forcibly entered a house and retaliated with an axe by the occupant as he was about to kill the occupant. It is clearly not manslaughter but a murder committed in self-defense. In such an offense, the perpetrator is never sentenced to death. He faces up to 10 years in prison. But our speaker, Nimal Ranaweera in order to earn merits from the former president Maithripala Sirisena, ordered murderer to gallows. It is clearly evidence of his bias judgment in the trial.
The Judicial Service Commission has received so many complaints regarding corruption and irregularities in Nimal Ranaweera's litigation. But the then Chief Justice Ashoka Silva has suppressed them because Ashoka Silva's younger brother Priyantha Silva is a boozing pal of Nimal Ranaweera. Priyantha Silva too has defended Nimal Ranaweera.
There is another crucial case pending before the Gampaha High Court where this corrupt judge Nimal Ranaweera is currently on duty. That is the case of the Army shooting deaths in Rathupaswala. He is also a member of the three-judge panel hearing this case. Nimal Ranaweera, a staunch Gota supporter, is sure to give Gotabaya the verdict he deserves without doing justice to the victims.
