British Govt. Calls Upon Sri Lanka Again To Sign UN Declaration Of Commitment To End Sexual Violence In Conflict

The British Government has expressed grave concerns over the culture of impunity prevailing in Sri Lanka for rape and sexual violence and has once again called upon the Government of Sri Lanka (GoSL) to sign up to the UN Declaration of Commitment to End Sexual Violence in Conflict.

The South Asia Department of Foreign and Commonwealth Office in UK in a letter to the Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam (TGTE) yesterday has expressed concerns over the reports of a culture of impunity for rape and sexual violence and a lack of support for victims in Sri Lanka both during and after the conflict.

These calls are made just days after a group of Naval officers attached to the Karainagar Navy camp accused of raping a 11 year-old for 11 days were released on personal bail earlier this week.

While stating that the British government remains concerned over the recent NGO reporting that have particularly highlighted instances of sexual violence in the post conflict era, the statement further asserts that significant action has already been taken by the British government on the issue to which includes:

  • Hosting an event to highlight concerns of sexual violence in Sri Lanka by Foreign Secretary William Hague during his visit for CHOGM in 2013 where calls were made upon Sri Lankan authorities to hold an independent and credible investigation on the allegations of sexual violence committed by Sri Lankan forces during and after the military conflict
  • Sponsoring the UNHRC resolution on Sri Lanka in March this year that has expressed serious concerns at the continuing reports of sexual and gender based violence
  • Supporting projects to ensure a zero-tolerance to rape and sexual violence in Sri Lanka including establishing a helpline for victims of domestic abuse, training local media in investigative techniques that will help them shine a light on this issue and inviting Sri Lankan and international experts on gender issues and sexual violence in Sri Lanka for the Global Summit to End Sexual Violence held in London in June this year

    Its very unfair of the British Govt to ask such things as its contradicts the Sumanasekera doctrine which very clearly says “its the way of life of the majority inhabitants and anythings possible post Nanthikadal” !!

    Let me give the floor over to you the one and only the great humanist K A Sumansekera (LEELA)to add further points to your doctrine!

    Dear Hon. Prime Minister Mr. David Cameron,

    “The British Government has expressed grave concerns over the culture of impunity prevailing in Sri Lanka for rape and sexual violence and has once again called upon the Government of Sri Lanka (GoSL) to sign up to the UN Declaration of Commitment to End Sexual Violence in Conflict.”

    You do not understand. This is Sinhala “Buddhism”.In Sinhala “Buddhism” and “Sinhala Buddhist culture” Violence and sexual abuse is part of the culture. Example abound in Lanka, the Land of Native Veddah and Veddhan.

    To begin with, you gave the Westminster Democracy to a Bunch Sinhala “Buddhists”, who follow the lies and imaginations of a 6th century Para-Monk Mahanama.. The Monks are trained from a young age, and they are abused by the senior Monks. When they are not enough child monks, they go to the community and rape young boys.

    So sexual abuse is part of the culture of Sinhala Buddhism and Buddhism, just like in the Catholic Church where alter boys are abused.

    So the SL armed forces follow this tradition. Many Sinhala Buddhist fathers even abuse their daughters.

    This is the “Sinhala Buddhist Culture” of Lanka, the para-Culture of those who came from South India. The DNA in their bodies prove that.

    Given below is support for the above assertion.

    Child Abuse by a Monk in Habaraduwa

    Uploaded on May 29, 2010
    She sent her grandson to school with the idea of providing him with proper education to make him a good person. The Buddhist monk in charge of the temple asked her to send the child to the temple and she sent him there because they were poor. There was no possibility for them to pay the money for tuition fees. That was the reason why they sent the boy to the temple school.When the child began to refuse going to the temple school so adamantly, grandmother had to look for the reason. It was then only that she discovered that the child who was sent to learn good behavior, ethics and Buddha’s Dharma from the monk had in fact been abused by the monk.

    How can Rajapaksa agree to sign this declaration while his close associates have been accused and convicted of sex crimes against women. His military has raped and continues to rape Tamil women and children with impunity. It is unimaginable that any civilised human being refusing to sign this declaration but what we have in Rajapaksa is a war criminal and a mass murderer who condones sexual crimes of his associates and his military. The man will never sigh it.

      The Brits knew the weakness of the naked fakir and preferred him to Bose because they had to baptise the nation with the camels paw.

      Get the Hindians to sign it first.

      Will Modi sign even though its a very hot topic there.

      Women officers in the Indian forces know what life is like than any one on this forum- one word they vanish into enemy lines never to return.

    “Amarasiri”,

    Get your facts right. Sexual abuse, rape, phedohilia etc also happen in every western state, every western country and in some churches and even in vatican. Look at india. This is a social issue created by circumstance. Not all buddhists fall in to this category. Do you blame your allah for all the brutality happening in the world. Or do you blame ethnicity for all the wrong in the world.

    there is more brutality practiced by british forces in conflicts than any other force in the world. It is not the policy of SL armed forces to practice sexual violence. Yes, there are few rotten apples spoling the show for everybody. they are called black sheeps. they even exist in famalies. Look at yourself. Chip of the old block may be.

    GET A LIFE “Amarasiri”

      Yes, Cameron is right in the middle of an investigation of paedophilia in British politics over the last forty years. Paedophiles have been protected by the establishment as present evidence indicates. As Cameron has been known to do with other sexual perversions, if he legalises paedophilia, it should not be a matter of surprise.

        Catholic Spain was ruled by Islamist for 700 years until Isabella the Catholic drove them away the Reconquista, and became world power-1492.

        General Franco did not allow even kissing in public but he had to bring down the age of consent to 13 as there was no other way due to Islamist influence.Italy 14.

        Indian forces have some of the prettiest women married to them yet life for a woman officer in the forces is one of rape very often.

        Folk who experienced the IPKF know it better.

      “Get your facts right. Sexual abuse, rape, phedohilia etc also happen in every western state, every western country and in some churches and even in vatican.”

      Let us compete with them and beat them. Lets have more abuse.

      “there is more brutality practiced by british forces in conflicts than any other force in the world.”

      Let us compete with them and beat them. Lets practice more brutality than what we do now. We want to win our former Colonial Masters.

      ” It is not the policy of SL armed forces to practice sexual violence.”

      If you believe this you will believe anything. Are you trying to sell a second hand non existent car without wheels, body, engine, chassis, …………..

      “Yes, there are few rotten apples spoling the show for everybody. they are called black sheeps.”

      No they are called war criminals.

      [So get you Fking facts right]
      This type of comment is very common in the West so Ronnie
      [mighty councillor] is following the Western trend very similar to Gotta when he use American vocabulary to berate ex Sunday Leader editor with filth laden vitriol calling her pig shit. Gotta just used his right as a US Green Card holder at the time, Ronnie is just following his Scottish heritage.

      “Nonsense . British never raped and pillaged.”

      No need to rape them, the British were provided with “Kandyan Hospitality”.

      Please ask Dr.Rajasingham Narendran for further details.

        Even today every Chinese, Japanese,Russian who come to UK want to get married to an Englishman and that goes even with Europeans.

        Within 2 years (especially the Asians) over 90% get divorced.
        Cultures don’t click.

        At least those Kandyians stood by.

        The British forces at Germany have to leave by 2020. Most are married to German women and don’t want to leave Germany because of the quality of life but the German women prefer to settle down at Yorkshire.
        There are more Jews in the home for the aged in Germany and they come from all over the EU because of the quality of care but don’t speak German.Because they are more German than the `Y` of Israel/Palestine.

    These Western people, specially David Cameron is trying violate fundamental rights of our Ministers, MP’s, Local Politicians, Friends and friends of Politicians and their supporters and our Rana Viruvos by forcing our Saddarmadveepa Chakrawarthi to Sign UN Declaration Of Commitment To End Sexual Violence In Conflict.

    They still don’t know that the above very important people has the patent right to rape or do whatever they need weather victims are underage or overage with impunity.

    In Sri Lanka Madamulana Law is,

    Murder and Gang Rape – (If the Victims are Foreigners) 20 Years Imprisonment subject to Manaranjana Samaawa.

    Raping Underage Girls by Ranaviruwos – release on Rs. 250/= bail and transfer to another place.

    Raping Underage Girls by Politicians – Pardon from Attorney General and Promotion as MP for Overlooking National Security.

      pri pri peera,

      Somebody with ba**s and verbal virtuosity has to draw the whip on moosala lanka.

      Independence was an accident for Ceylon not Hindia.

      Therefore UK has a duty to correct its mistake at Lanka the same way its correcting it in England.

      You mess around you will dig your own grave and have a Scotland type of voting which is exactly what the nation does not want except for village JT’s.

      Even Rome fell because of the break down of family life nothing else.

    the UK govt. sent a letter to the TGTE. so does that mean the UK govt. talks to terrorists and even send letters. i thought the UK is tough on terror. may be only when it suits them and their country is at peril of terrorism and bugger any other country.

      “cameron should get his house in order before preaching to others”

      That is true. They should not try to teach us about Sex abuse, Torture, Human rights, ethnic violence, Media freedom, Independence of Judiciary, Democracy and English etc. as we are a Proud Sovereign Nation that has 2600 years of civilized history and also only the Country that has Nanasara kind Pure Sinhala Buddhism. Also Cameron has forgotten the fact that Our Current Ruler, Saddarmadveepa Chakrawarthi is close relative of Lord Buddha.

      Cameron should know that our Country is the only Country that is taking serious action against all wrongdoers belongs to Opposition.

      Katunayaka Roshen Chanaka Case. – Ex IGP, Dr. Mahinda Balasuriya took the responsibility and he got the punishment and punishment was a Diplomatic Post.

      Rathupaswella Case – Army Investigation Panel found one Brigadier was responsible and he was punished duly by giving another Diplomatic Post.

      7 Navel Ranaviruwos – Raping Underage Girls in the North – Release on Rs. 250/- Cash bail and transfer to another Camp.

      Jaliya Wickramasuriya – International thief-Presidents Cousin – only ordered to pay back Rs. 45 million after complains from USA.

      Yasalal Samarasingha Disanayaka- Assessor/Dept. of Inland Revenue- Maharagama Branch- Relative of President- Caught red handed while taking a Bribe from one of his clients. Bribery commission withdrew the case. Ref: ravaya.lk/?p=3716

      We have a strong Justice system with a fine Justice Minister who is seeking Justice from others to deal with any sort of crimes, sex abusers and all wrongdoers.
