Any Action To Meet Geneva Proposals Will Be Based On Our Constitution: President Tells Party Leaders

An all party meeting chaired by President Maithripala Sirisena yesterday night to ascertain opinions of political party leaders on how the government should proceed about in meeting Geneva proposals ended without any fireworks.

MaithriSpeculations in the media that those opposing the implementation of UNHRC proposals, including the setting up of Hybrid courts would come up with all guns blazing, was not to be the case.

Pivithuru Hela Urumaya leader MP Udaya Gammanpila was the only dissenting voice in the crowd, but this too was a whimper, quite a contrast to his scathing remarks on the issue in public meetings and TV debates.

Meanwhile Opposition leader R. Sampanthan was in a jovial mood calling for the full implementation of the recommendations.

JVP’s Tylvin Silva said that the government should carefully study the proposals as some clauses infringe on the country’s constitution.

Gammanpila noted that the Lankan constitution does not include provisions to mandate a Hybrid court.

There were no invitations for NFF Leader Wimal Weerawansa or TULF leaders Ananda Sangaree.

President Sirisena at the outset requested political parties to submit written suggestions on the future course of action that should be taken with regards to the UNHRC resolution, within two weeks.

The President told party leaders that any action to meet Geneva proposals will be based within the framework of Sri Lankan Constitution.

“Their current resolution is quite different in terms of its content in comparison to those resolutions that came intermittently on March 22, 2012 , March 21, 2013 and March 27, 2014,” the President said.

Sirisena said that the proposals in the current resolution were not as intrusive as ones proposed in the previous ones. He said that Sri lanka had to face this and could not run away from the responsibility.

The meeting which lasted for about an hour ended with President promising to have several rounds of such gatherings in the near future.

Three members including General Secretary of a party were allowed to participate.

United National Party Leader and Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe, Opposition Leader R. Sampantham of the Tamil National Alliance, Foreign Affairs Minister Mangala Samaraweera, Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna General Secretary Tilvin Siva, Sri Lanka Muslim Congress leader and Minister Rauf Hakeem, Democratic People’s Front Leader Mano Ganeshan, Pivithuru Hela Urumaya leader MP Udaya Gammanpila, Communist Party Leader D.E.W. Gunasekara, MP Chandrasiri Gajadheera, Nawa Sama Samaja Party leader MP Vasudeva Nanayakkara, LSSP leader and former All Party Representatives Committee Chairman Prof. Tissa Vitharana and Ministers Champika Ranawaka and Nimal Siripala de Silva were among the participants.

    The original period envisaged for this thing was 18 months.

    Although if litigation starts expect that to last many years. I think that is OK.

    The SL tax payer should not fund it however. Let UNHRC should provide funding.

      “Let UNHRC should provide funding.”

      That is not a bad idea too. Money come from Geneva. You set up internal investigation. Then the money go back to swiss bank. Isn’t it how the Chinese Contract and loans operate too?

      War crime investigation can be more lucrative business than the Humanitarian War that provided a loot of Thaligkodies worth of 10 billions dollar to swiss banks and Dubai Banks.

      Congratulation!

      What the New King proposing is while waiting for a deer hunt don’t cough. That is why the whooping cough patient Wimal was not invited. Even in the parliament debate. Ranil, like Brother Prince sent Karuna to London without passport of his own, has sent whooping cough patient Wimal to Italy. Winal make noise enough to chase the elephant, but not good for deer hunt.

      This how Lankawe’s CIDs “Pillaiyan Piddika Kuankai Pauii Mudincha kathai” (The sculpturalist was making a Lord Ganapathi’s holy statue. But the statue has become a monkey”) New King said he has a file on the Old King. Old King said he has a file on New King. Everybody wanted to see those. But they did not wanted to show those to anybody. Now Pillayan claiming he files on both Kings, the Old and the new. Nobody wants to see that. Why is that Vibhushana? Could help Pillaiyan to bring his folders out?

      How GTF anf TGTE.

      they want this ?

      Why don’t they fund it ?

      Make it fair by getting some LTTE fund raisers deported to Sri lanka.

        They are already funding a lot. As soon as you put their(diaspora) judges, they will take care of the money part. They are not Baffoon de Silva, or Desmond De Silva that you need an entire bank to roll out for them. Thier lawyers and Judges waiting the call for attend it free.

        If you are putting your judges you have to pay from the looted Thalikodi proceeds, which now you are sending to Swiss banks.

        Would you go ahead and recommend your Old King(or even New King) to appoint Diaspora Judges? Forget about Ranil Mahata. These days he is really targeting you people. If you go and talk to him about Diaspora Judges he is going kick you on the butt.

    Constitutions are framed for the prosperity of peoples of nations.
    If a constitution is found to be inadequate to deal with a contingency faced by any nation, it should be modified to suit the sudden situation
    which arose unforeseen, such as the aftermath of a civil war, its consequences and any procedure proposed by the United Nations and/or its subordinate division(s).
    The UNHRC of which Sri Lanka is a member, has adopted a resolution which expects Sri Lanka to carry out a mode of investigation into the method, process and aftermath of events which transpired during the civil war.
    If Sri Lanka for any reason is unable to do so, it should resign from the UNHRCouncil, and go on its own way into the future.

    Trying to appease interests of factions such as political parties, and/or parts of the government such as the bureacracy, armed forces or clergy of religions, by avoiding the task, is an insult to the United Nations and to all its member nations.

    A judicial process in which national and international judiciary function together as proposed by the UNHRC resolution is necessary to remain a committed member state of the United Nations Organisation.

    I think Hitler followed his Constitution also.That is how he kept his own sovereignty intact. I think every country should be allowed to kill and torture their minorities. International human rights organizations should not interfere because it is breach of sovereignty.

    “Kaliyana Chanthayilai Maapillaiyai maranthu pauchinam.” (In the chaos of the wedding activities, the bridegroom was left behind)

    Number one dupe master, Old King did not go to parliament when the most important debate, that is to make the Hero Army to war criminals. He is the one won the war and saved the country. But he doesn’t want to show up to parliament and saved the Hero Army. He was ready to go to UN electric chair only to save the country, but he will not go to electric chair by winning the debate in the parliament which was ordered by West to rename the Hero Army as war criminals. He left that job to Ranil Mahata. This was deal they two put in the Temple Tree house during the January 8th morning coup.

    Paper Hero Wimal was was empty headed. He did not have anything to say in the debate, a drama put up by new royals, in the continuation of the process of sending off Sec.Kerry in one year time, with all well wishes. Only way for Wimal is to go to Italian Mafia’s and buy some new smokes to replenish his head with hallucinations. Helping him to run to Italy will earn the new name for Ranil Mahata that he is the one fished the “Mullivaikkal Humanitarian war” which was started by Attanagalla Princess Chandrika as “War for Peace” with the help of her muderous uncle Ratwatta.

    Many times Ranil Mahata who claimed that he was the one win the war by protecting the Genocide army, now fighting the finish line line by fooling the UNHRC. The deal, as per ranil mahata, is Old King and the army will commit the war crime and save the country and Ranil Mahata will save Old King and the army from war crime. So, with the slogan of Kec.Kerry’s US army coming to Lankawe, on the January 8th, the power was changed hands, with a coup rather than honestly implementing the election victory.

    This is why the bridegrooms were missing in the extravagant marriage ceremony, the so called the debate on UNHRC resolution. It is not the bridegroom were really missing. The arrangement is, Ranil mahata has send them off to a brothel house for a bachelor party before the bridegrooms touch the real bride. This is why all the big guns like Vasu, Udya, Diesh… were spending their time with beer and women, not showing interest in saving the Heros who saved the country.

    So, Ranil mahata was doing the fireworks and simultaneously serving the Kiribath too, in advance.

    Pillaiyan has said Old King launched him on the New King. The only party who can investigate this statement is neither Tamils, nor Sinhalese, Neither Old Royals, Nor New Royal. Will Ranil mahata open the way to IC judges to investigate this accusation? This not a war crime case. If Ranil mahata is not scared of it, will he allow the international Judges to investigate Pillayan’s attempt on New King, Kumar Ponnampalam case and Kathirgamar case too?

    American officials come and go for every four years. From ISIS, Al Qaeda, Satam … Russia plans based on this fact. China and Old King jointly funded against Susan Rice based on this. They, first, appeared they won. They got defeated Susan and got Sec.Kery as they way they wanted. But Sec,Kerry refused to get along with Old King, the main master of this trick. The chameleon, Lankawe Royal government, which change the color to red when communists help wanted, change to green when western help wanted and change to blue when India’s help wanted has has immediately changed the color from China red to western green and quickly shook their hands with America. Basically there was no real government change, but an emulation took place to satisfy the western world. Only one more year to dodge Sec.Kerry. Then UNP will take ahead the “Humanitarian War” and “The war for peace”. So the particular bridegroom Old King was told to hang around with the brothel house women in the bachelor party until the Sec.Kerry goes out out he can reemerge as the Hero again.

    As an indication Ranil Mata has declared that the casualty was not as expected. It is muchless. That is what his statement is. All these time Old Royals had stood as it is zero casualty. For the first time New Royals have released their number. That is much less than the number all these time known, the zero casualty. In fooling the west he has won the game. So he has got the key to conduct internal investigation. So he is telling this story to the Tamils, whom has to believe him. Is he telling the number is negative, if it is less than believed zero?

      “Why does not Sri lankan govt sue Tamilnadu govt in Indian Federal courts. MGR provided funds to LTTE.”

      MGR was only the middle man. Funds came from RAW. Arms came from RAW. Training was provided by RAW.

      Note RAW was part of Central government. Tamilnadu does not oversea RAW.

      When would you learn?

    Glad to hear our President has realized that there is a Constitution in our motherland.

    Because our PM, Batalanada Ranil and his Minister for the West and Diaspora interests give promises to the United Nations Bosses as if we are under Captain Arthur Phillips.

      JOKER FOR PRESIDENT AND JOKER FOR PRIME MINISTER OF SRILANKA.

      We elected these jokers had we not? They sent jokers as SL Envoys to foreign lands to fly our flag instead they’re disgracing our country. The latest one was sent recently by Yahapalanaya to Brazil is another NINCOMPOOP got robbed along with his SL body guards and men friends lock stock and barrel on the highway ,

      This Yahapalanaya President we elected asked the Main line media to publish favourable articles for reconciliation .

      What’s the point ? What’s the point when you have not cleared all the garbage ( crimes and murders) done and left behind by your Buddies and you and your PM keep releasing the criminals what do you expect???
      Nobody wants to respect your ways of cheating the ” Lovers of Srilanka “

      Please do what is right for the country first punish the criminals!!!!! Then ask for our help.
      What are you going to do about the underground palace built in the heart of aColombo without the knowledge of anyone.? You as the buddy of MARA must have known about it 100%%% .,,, this was built from the state money to be used for the poor , ON the schools , hospitals ect ect??
      Look at the state of the village schools the state of the school desks , equipments lack of Teachers Ect.
      If you people from Palaces do not know or heard of these poor people’s plight we as Patriotic citizens are writing here to EDUCATE YOU AND YOUR BUDDIES THRU COLOMBO TELEGRAPH.
      Please don’t ask for help if you don’t act upon on very serious matters.
      Srilankans are so called ” TIMID PEOPLE ” because they have been punished and bullied for wrong doings by the politicians , by the heireachies and also bullied by the religious Leaders for centuries in the name of Lord Buddha.
      The Bhuddhists had been bullied by the MahaSangha and the Prelates.
      The selfish nature of the Politicians and the Sangha has made a STUPID , TIMID ,NATION. PEOPLE HAVE LOST THEIR VOICE.
      WHILE THE WEALTH OF THE NATION WAS PLUNDERED SAT THERE NOT KNOWING ANYTHING. ” JOKERS “

              If I need to Analyse this Psychopath’s condition it appears this is beyond any kind of treatment. It’s not what the cranium filled as what I imagine the ( his favourite word) Punnakku but deterioration of mental and physical state leads to oblivion.
              Valium in large doses might help. Not the placebo type sold in Srilankan Pharmacies , they might not be effective to clear this chronic illness.

Two comments from you to reply one of my mine also shows you are going insane, just reading my practical advice on how to get rid of your problem – lack of grey matter and a cranium full of punnakku. That’s the truth.
