Death of Makandure Madush to boomerang back at Sri Lanka Government!

We earlier revealed how International Police (INTERPOL) played a role in deporting Underworld Leader Makandure Madush, who was killed in a gunfire yesterday (20), from Dubai.

We also revealed how Madush had requested the Dubai authorities not to deport him to Sri Lanka in the probability of any event that he is killed without being tried before Court, whilst the INTERPOL operations were ongoing.

The Sri Lankan government then had sent a letter to the Emir of Dubai requesting the deportation of the suspect in a significant event, as the then Sri Lankan President, Maithripala Sirisena, had personally made this request in writing to the Emir of Dubai.

So had this letter been delivered to the Emir by a special group of Sri Lankan delegates. The team comprised then Foreign Minister of Sri Lanka Thilak Marapana, who is a former Attorney General and a President's Counsel, current Attorney General then Additional Solicitor General of the Attorney General's Department Dappula de Livera and then Assistant Superintendent of Police in charge of the International Police Unit of Sri Lanka Ranjith Wedasinghe.

Madush's strong request on not to deport him to Sri Lanka in the probability of being killed was denied by the Dubai authorities in confidence with the maximum diplomatic efforts made by the Sri Lankan government in the deportation process.

This was never a return of a suspect to a country under normal circumstances.

The main charge leveled against Madush at the time was a plot to assassinate elite persons, hatched to the notion that then President Maithripala Sirisena and former Defence Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa were the main targets, backed by the disclosure made by conspiracy theorist Namal Kumara. Mr. Gotabaya Rajapaksa is the current President of Sri Lanka and Mr. Maithripala Sirisena is the chairman of the Ruling Party's main political alliance.

A number of Sri Lankan suspects arrested along with Madush in Dubai had already been deported to Sri Lanka, but Madush's deportation was delayed due to the aforementioned circumstances.

Against all political interpretations and diplomatic confidence between the states, Madush's long predicted warning has turned out to be true afterall, now that he is dead - shot dead by gunfire!

Is a dialogue to be built up in this regard at the international level, it will involve the highest level positions and figures in the country. If, for any reason, Dubai calls for the cancellation of Sri Lanka's INTERPOL membership, chances are high that this matter would definitely be considered, on the basis that countries that respect international conventions should abide by them, field experts noted.

Thus, legal experts pointed out that this has paved the way for any solicitor of international connections, or an internationally affiliated organisation, to build up a strong case against the Sri Lankan state before the International Criminal Court.
