Issuing a statement last night Sharma recalled that Canada has a long and valued record of support for the work of the Commonwealth Fund for Technical Cooperation.

Sharma said the difficult adjustments to Commonwealth development programmes would be made, and expressed confidence that important priorities agreed by Commonwealth member states collectively can still be delivered, with results and impact for the benefit of the people of the Commonwealth in accordance with the current strategic plan.

    It will resume when you get out of this institution dear Sharma. You are a disgrace to the institution and you sold the good values of the institution for money.

      Sri Lankan Shill Sharma is disappointed that his career is ruined and his days in office are numbered without funds.

      His pockets lined with Mahinda money is the only consolation he has.

      Stupid fellow backed the wrong horse!

      Canada.. WHat the hell is that??? Its a mere LTTE Embassy. Talk about rights its has less rights for its Native Indigenous people, where Indigenous women are raped brutally abducted and murdered, Total disappearance. Even the UNHCR which the LTTE embassy raised its voice against Lanka, yet fought tooth and nail to ignore the resolution regarding its Indigenous people rights.. F*** Joke.. Just like the Common wealth Micky mouse show.

      Well said.

      “Commonwealth Secretary-General Kamalesh Sharma expressed disappointment at the Canada’s suspension of technical assistance funding but looked forward to the resumption of the contributions, says the Commonwealth Secretariat.”

      Why give funds to a bunch of hypocrites who want to Glorify British Imperialism?

      Kamlesh Sharma, the SG of the Commonwealth Secretariat – whose role in going out of the way to support the venal Rajapakses – has been suspect from the beginning. Sharma has to be held responsible for Canada suspending her usual funding to the CW Secretariat. Why was Sharma not removed after Canadian PM, in an unprecedented move, called him “a Rajapakse shill” He should have, if he had any personal integrity – immediately after the failed Colombo meeting.

    If Sharma´s position was hadled by an European, how would have it worked for the srilanka ?

    I believe, then CHOGM that MR regime wasted billions or people´s funds coul dnot have been held in Sl.
    To this day, srilanka would have been CLEALY marked as not a friendly place to be visited by ANYONE.

    They would have even made it very clear, that MR regime is a threat for the srilanken´s views. Familial rule of MR would have been torn into piece to this day.

    It is Sharma the caricature – strenghtened the hand of an alleged murderous state leader to continue the harm in this way.

    Yes, in shorten, I feel

    Kamalesh Sharma made the Karama for the SRILANKEN people.

    We thought, after war is no longer there, things would turn its way easier towards, the achieving permenent peace. But today, the situation is even widened than had been before.

    So what have the man in power, wearing a loin cloth around his next (Mahinda the man born to disgrace the sinahala nation) achieved ?

    Great achievements: 23 + 12 out of 47 member states of UNHRC voted against the state and made it light to paint the picture clearly – that the man and his capabilities are MORE CONSPICUOUS- his rule will not pave ways towards – PEACE

    This [Edited out] Kamalesh Sharma should be kicked out for suppressing the two Reports reference the CJ Impeachment. Do not these Buggers have a shame to hang around after committing such underhand tactics to help the Tsunami Fund Embezzler MR? The damage they cause to reputed Institutions is unpardonable.

      Yes these [Edited out] make it even worse day to another.

      As some made it very clear, if an EU man were in that seat, today, the situation would have been much favourable to all the member states and the world.
      As a result of the blind faith kept by Sharma the karma on Mahinda Rajapakshe, everything became worst during last few months. I wonder how the bugger would be arriving in UK for the upcoming CW meeting. Last time, it ended up with cancellation of his schedule program at Oxford, this it will end up with even worst. It is all because CW shaky men decided to crown the man who is alleged to have committed high crimes during the war end.

    Sharma the only disgraceful Secretary to the commonwealth so far is lamenting on the fact that he cannot swindle any more money. It is not likely that such a hallowed institution like Commsec would ever recover after this unprecedentedly disgraceful Combo of a Chairperson and a secretary. It cannot get any worse. Bensen

    What the f.. is this bloody monkey still doing in the Commonwealth Office? The writings are on the wall and Canada made it clear to every dick tom and harry about their principles and stance. This loony clown KS like his criminal partner MARA is now uttering some diplomatic nonsense without accepting his failure and wrong doings. This [Edited out] KS gave the CW members the promise that they are working with MARA regime according to some plan and already the regime was in right track addressing all outstanding issues. Since then now a 3rd resolution has been passed and Canada has taken this particular step. This bloody joker shameless and corrupt to the core as his criminal partner MARA is hiding his head under sand showing his nut-basket and showing “positive attitude”. This [Edited out] must be impeached and tried for breaching faith and criminal connivance.

    Canada did the correct thing. They also should bring a motion and get rid of Kamalesh Sharma who hid the report from member Commonwealth countries. He is a disgrace to the principles of the Commonwealth.

    Not to worry Mr.Sharma. When the Secretariat has no more money to pay your salary you will get a job as a Minister in the Sri Lanka cabinet. They owe you at least that favor in return.

    Canada has stood by its convictions; Sharma didn’t and now feels like the schoolboy whose pocket money has been docked, and feigns surprise. Time to do the decent thing Sharma – but does he know what that is?.

      Definitely $ 20 mil must be petty cash for MR now having robbed big money? Anyway he can pocket out to keep the CW carnival going if he wants to remain in the Chair. Serves the buggers right. Easy come easy go.

    Sharma and Rajapaksa are both disgrace to Commonwealth of Nations. Canada has taken a principled decision.

    The Commonwealth has abandoned its commitment to defending human rights, according to a leaked document obtained by the Guardian in which the secretary general tells his staff it is not their job to speak out against abuses by the 54 member states.

    Compare Sharma with the former S.G.Sridath Sri Ramphal,Q.C., what a disgrace this man.
