Mervyn threatens to break limbs of journos

E-mail Print
Minister of Public Relations Mervyn Silva warned that he will break the limbs of some journalists, who have gone abroad and made various statements against the country, if they dare to set foot in the country.

 “I’m the one who chased one of those journalists ‘PoddalaJayantha’ out of this country. I will break the limbs of all these journalists, in public if they dare to set foot in the country” the Minster warned.

Speaking at a demonstration against the resolution against Sri Lanka at the UNHRC held in Kiribathgoda today Silva also said it is the only the President who can remove him from office.

He also said “Even if a Tsunami flow from Sigiriya I’m sure that no Tsunami will flow against me from President Mahinda Rajapaksa” . “Only Mahinda Rajapakshe can sack me, no other big shot can lay their hands on me until that happened I won’t leave Kelaniya. I know the sons of D.A. Rajapaksa from the time they were kids. The King of this country loves me, the King of this country trusts me” he said.

The Minister informed the public present at the meeting that his son, from this day, would be in the hands of the public. “I’m not afraid to die; two drug dealers from Colombo want to chase me away. But I’m not frightened to die, if something happens to my life, my wife and two children will still be there. From this day onwards my son will be in your hands” he said. (Lal. S. Kumara)

Stupid comment!

He is a minister and part of the govt and saying this means he deliberately put the state and the govt into further troubles.

Looks like, the world (or at least those 24 countries) told the world what is (or what will) actually happening in Sri Lanka. Mervin proves them 100% correct. Srilankan style of safeguarding Human rights. These people never learn a lesson.

You are absolutely correct. The UN and other countries dont have to look far to see human rights are abused and the law of the land is brushed aside by the very people who govern this country. Sri Lanka deserves what it gets.

There is no doubt that MR, Gotabhaya and Sarath F did a great job to wipe out LTTE from SL. So the credit should go to all. There is no point of arguing if there was another party in Govt they could have done the same thing. I believed and will still believe goventment did what they should do for the war. So for that we are greatful for having a strong back bone.
It is also a fact that not all ministers are doing their best for the interest of the country. It's up to this government to manage those people in such a way they don't bring more issues. This statement right here is going to push SL into more troubles. That I'm pretty sure!!

As Bandula says this is nothing against Srilanka or its people. UNHRC is asking the regime to implement their own report nothing else. This is a report prepared by the US or UN. There is no embargo or any kind sanctions mentioned. Regime is clearly misleading the people by pursuading its uneducated ministers to spread hatred. Cooking up stories. Twisting and turning the facts. There is a hidden agenda of MR & clan. It will push SL into more troubles only if they procrastinate the pending works further. If they do so, next time Russia & China too will abstain.

Sri Lanka will face similar challenges and will also fail due to these kind of foolish statements coming from politicians like this fellow.
If our politicians continue to undermine the professional living in the country, there will be thousands of Sri Lankans (Sinhalese, Tamils, Muslims and Burgers) to speak at world forum to save the nation from our short sighted politicians.
When there is no rule of law in the country, the people have no other choice, but to depend on international organisations and laws.

Mervin,
Pleae think twice before making such statement.s Though you do not understand your careless speeches can make unwanted and permanent damages to our country's reputation.
We understand your feeling but as a senior cabinet minister you must be more responsible. You are not only damaging to your self but also to others including our HE.

Having said that not all what you have said in different issues in the past are valueless. Some of your arguments are with common sense and relevances. The issue is how you present them in public.

Simply, when these guys run a thuggery role (licensed), how do they expect us to make complaints to police or President.

Simply, how does this so called Dr. Mervyn expect us to report complaints to the Police or President, when they themselves run an armed and licensed thuggery role?
