Nihal Sri Ameresekere’s 12th book in a series of books, Socio-Political Realities – (Hilton Hotel Fiasco and Ad Hominem Legislation) – Expropriation Law (published by AuthorHouse), documenting facts pertaining to real case studies, and dealing with subjects of corruption, fraud, economic crime, governance, and the rule of law, is in 2 parts; the first part, exposes the shocking socio-political and diplomatic realities, which are mysteriously shrouded from the public glare, notwithstanding that they concern the affairs affecting the people, and do not concern issues involving national security, which of course would warrant a degree of classified secrecy.
The second part of the book deals with ad hominem legislation, secretly and hastily perversely enacted, to suddenly expropriate to the State, pre-identified properties of persons, devoid of any transparent process and intelligible differentia, and denying natural justice – in blatant violation of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
‘Socio-political realities’ at the highest levels in society are lucidly revealed by the author documenting real life experiences, in interacting with Presidents, Prime Ministers and Ministers, demonstrating their subservience to socio-political and diplomatic pressures, exercised by influential powerful countries, and the consequent shielding of fraudulent and corrupt Ministers and high profile Public Officers.
Author discloses appalling instances of the non-enforcement of the rule of law, even by attorney generals, against those affluent and powerful, even though the rule of law is the cornerstone of democracy, which rules the people, including those in governance.
There is shocking revelation, of how the Japanese government, through diplomats, influenced to settle and cover-up a colossal fraud, blatantly perpetrated on a country and its impoverished people, and prevented criminal prosecution of the miscreants; even inducingly offering, as a quid pro quo, to negotiate with a terrorist organisation, to resolve the issue of armed terrorism, ironically created by social injustice, as a consequence, inter-alia, of economic terrorism.
A constitutional minister, a President’s counsel, charged for fraud states blatant falsehoods. A Justice Minister and a Foreign Minister, also a President’s counsel, both scholarly alumni of Oxford University, camouflages to whitewash fraud, intriguingly taking duplicitous stances.
As to how the highest judiciary deals with challenges to the perverse legislative process in enacting ad hominem legislation, ultra-vires the Constitution, is revealing with shocking disclosures of the Chief Justice’s husband being given plum political public offices, with a scandalous controversy exploding in the public domain, as the Author applies for a review, as per-incuriam and ultra-vires the Constitution, of the pre-enactment Determination made, including by the Chief Justice, on such Statute, adducing additional grounds of perceived bias, citing the famous Judgment by Their Lords of Appeal, in exercising inherent jurisdiction in similar circumstances, to rescind a previous Judgment of the House of Lords, in extradition proceedings re - Chilean President Pinochet.
