      Why restrict to the slaves and Europeans?

      It is the Natives, the Native Indians who should be suing for the near genocide, the near destruction of their land by the foreigners, slaves or not.

      Similarly, the Naive Veddah should be suing the Paradeshis, the Para-Sinhala, the Para-Tamils, and Para-Muslims of South India, and the other Para-deshis for damages and request that Illegals leave the Veddah Land, to South India.

      Native Veddah, Please initiate your own Law Suit.

    What a ironic twist of history. The Europeans took the slaves from West Africa to the Caribbean/America, then they get their freedom, then many of their progeny return to form communities in Europe. And then they sue! After all, they did get a better deal in the end than the ones risking their lives trying to get to Europe nowadays.

      Bravo Caribbean nations. We feel your pain.

      These are the real issues of history and not the human rights deception they are infesting the wold with,to bury this disgraceful history that created today’s unjust world.

      The suing is not enough. All the land they have grabbed through rape, murder and extermination of our peoples has to be repossessed, like Zimbabwe’s Robert Mugabe did.

      They should be asked to go back to where they came from, Belgium, Holland, Britain or where ever.

      Genetic mixing with local women through rape of domestic servants and occupation for a long time etc.shuld not matter and their claimed ownership of land should not be recognised.

      Down with the grubs who committed these atrocities in the name of their Queen!

        Yes., Yes.

          Amarsiri and Ntive Veddah are both native names and you should get a Parangi name that suits you!

          Indians may have come here , like the Veddahs themselves, but no one invented the slave trade until the Parangis did.

          Down with the Parangis.

      Perfectly right. once a slave always a slave.

      UK also made the mistake of favoring the west Indian soldiers of WW2.

      They paid compensation to 15k of them while 2 million Indians gave their lives for the British war and got nothing but a blood bath partition where 1.5 million were killed by the muslims the US/UK fancied.

      Churchill was never a peace time PM perhaps that is why he never passed out of High school.

      Now the best thing is for all 3 nations to give these booty shake folk a one way ticket to Mugabe land the the sihala buddhist cannibals can follow along with Namal who likes the booty shake.

    Let’s see the honestly of humanitarian concerns of Britain and France. I think Netherlands can be excused as they don’t meddle in affairs of other countries citing human rights and what not.

    All that the EU has to do is confiscate all the drugs sent from Caribbean and ask the slaves to pay for it and for the damage caused to EU nationals.

    How’s that for a return? Ha ha

        “Why Jemil, Do not blame CT. CT isonly the messenger.”

        He is right because the last couple of days they have deflected onto one side which is a bit ugly like the initial nudity of the Arabic- we can have only one biological mother so we should have some respect for woman.

        To top it does not have the courage to give a customised reply to a simple question- perhaps it is a very lankian quality that does not go away even though they now live in the free 1st world and nothing to fear.
        Looks like their sister site lankanewsweb is shutting down.
