First, JVP claimed that someone hacked hicorp.us to make it look like that HiCorp’s boss is Danuna Tilakaratne. They said they verified the “hacking” with HiCorp representatives.

මේ අතර අප මේ සම්බන්ධයෙන් එම ආයතනයෙන් කළ විමසීමකදී එහි ප්‍රකාශකයකු සදහන් කළේ තම වෙබ් අඩවිය තුළට අනවසර පිවිසුම් කරුවන් පිවිස ඇති බව තාක්ෂණික විශේෂඥයින් තහවුරු කළ බවත් හැකි ඉක්මනින් එය යථා තත්වයට පත්කිරීමට අවශ්‍ය පියවර මේවන විටත් ගනිමින් පවතින බවයි.

Alas, HiCorp website hicorp.us is down even today, and JVP doesn’t seem to be very keen on following up the “spokesman” whom they could contact earlier within hours, in the dead of the night. Meanwhile, it has been proven beyond doubt that Danuna has links with the company.


Then the JVP alleged that the election was rigged via a computer “jilmart”, and that Sarath Fonseka was the actual winner. It failed to explain how one could work around all the manual counting results and the fact that not all counting officers are MR stooges. Naturally, the allegation didn’t make it to the lawsuit regarding election malpractice.


The latest installment seems to have come as a claim that the petition website that campaigns for Sarath Fonseka’s release, http://www.freesarathfonseka.com is”obstructed by an organized group”:

Sources close to DNA told ‘Lankatruth’ that an organized group is obstructing the web site and viewers have been denied access. Speaking further these sources said they would not be put off by acts of saboteurs but would take all measures to make available the website as soon as possible for the viewers to place their signatures demanding the release of Gen. Sarath Fonseka.

However, it seems that the so-called “obstruction” is global.

It is not just me ...

Government can’t block a site globally. So, the government must have “hacked” this website too, rather than blocking it inside Sri Lanka. And that, within hours from the launch too. Anyone with a decent computer literacy knows that it’s not easy to “hack” an arbitrary website within a short time. It could be a DDoS, but given earlier claims, I’d rather be skeptic.

Or, there is something actually wrong with the site, either deliberately in the part of admins or not, but nothing to do with “organized groups”.

I’m sure the JVPers and the (dwindling) support group for Fonseka will believe the first version. Well, they believed the two old stories too.
