Champ Waidyathilaka, a junior manager of Tourism Minister Harin Fernando’s Sri Lanka Tourism Development Authority has expressed her joy at death threats to Mullaitivu District Judge T. Saravanaraja on her social media.
in a Sinhala language post she says repeats ALT Sinhala nationalist parliamentarian Saratha Weerasekara’s words ” This is a Sinhala Buddhist country, ” and goes to threaten others sating “That is his other lesson. These are lessons for all who are staging dramas. Lessons learnt.”
here is the translation of her post:
” He has fled. He has sensed the fear of death after he delivered controversial, partisan judgements. His conscience had told him you should get ready to pay back for the consequences of attacking a nation’s innocence, a nations right to heritage by paving the way for lies through the law.
“It is reported that the Mullaitivu magistrate who slandered the Buddhist right to Kurundi and aggrieved Buddhists has tendered his resignation. He has said that he is leaving the country because of Kurundi. He has said he recieved death threats from Sarath Weerasekara MP and venerable monks. So, he has left the country as a refugee. His drama has ended with him becoming a refugee. It is reported that Saliya Peiris’s lawyers association in tears had escorted him to the airport.
However, what he teaches us is that lies have no life. This is a Sinhala Buddhist country. That is his other lesson. These are lessons for all who are staging dramas. Lessons learnt.

Responding to this post via Twitter Minster Harin Fernando says that he is not responsible for SLTDA staff. SLTDA comes under his ministry and there by Champa W becomes his staff indirectly; This is how Sri Lanka’s politics work. Denial! And he does not say a word on Chamapa W’s post.
