Comment On Sajin-Nonis Affair

By Tamara Kunanayakam

Tamara Kunanayakam

Tamara Kunanayakam

The questions that everyone should be asking is: “Why now?  Why in New York? Why in the context of the UN General Assembly? Why during the Human Rights Council session in Geneva? Who benefits from the crime? What is the mission of Sri Lanka’s diplomacy?”

Sajin Vass Gunawardena, the man who runs the Foreign Ministry, and Kshenuka Senewiratne, his number two, are two sides of the same coin.

The assault of High Commissioner Chris Nonis is only one in a series of Acts in a Tragedy that opened in Geneva in 2009 with the same cast of villains, followed by other Acts also in Geneva in 2011 and 2012, and still others played out in Rome and Paris.

The method they used then to disarm Sri Lanka’s representatives was mobbing, now they have advanced to physical thuggery, and these top “diplomats” continue their devastation not only with total impunity, but enjoying high patronage, promotions, and financial advantages.

Their modus operandi may have changed, but their objective hasn’t . Their actions have always put Sri Lanka on the defensive in the position of the Accused. There is a striking coincidence between the defeat of the West along with the LTTE in 2009 and the beginnings of this Tragedy.

At a crucial juncture in the history of our country when unity and cohesion are national priorities, and credibility and allies international priorities, such hooliganism on the part of Sri Lanka’s top “diplomats” raises questions about the very nature of the Sri Lankan State and its state of decay,

It is urgent that the parliament, the parties that represent the people, and the people themselves put an end to this public humiliation of the nation if the country’s sovereignty, independence, and dignity is to be defended.

    Dear Tamara,

    Thanks for the article, i know its really painful for guys like you and Dayan J etc to get the condom theory from Rajapaksas who have definitely improved this theory starting from JVPers, Mangala/Sreepathi, SF, Tiran A, Dayan J, Tamara, Nonis, the list will go on and on…

    only the suckers like GL, Vasi-dewa, Athauda, DEW G can survive who have lost all their life’s credibility and just a waste of human soul.

    All this will be a just reminder for any of the Rajapaksa boot lickers to keep away from this dogs..

      Please enlighten me some one of what are Sajin Vass’ QUALIFICATIONS and EXPERTISE and EXPERIENCE to be monitoring MP of MEA?

      The monitoring MP of the paranoid psychopath gota the goon’s so-called Ministry of Defense is a murderer – Duminda Silva – but we have all forgotten about him since the daughter of the murder victim – Hirunika – is in bed with the Rajapassa regime – like the dead leftist geriatrics!

        The Baggage Boy of Rajapaksas was more or less a Warf Clerk of Trico/Frico in the 80s in the UAE.

        Rajapaksas don’t believe in qualifications. All they need is one to be a fantastic Rajapaksa Dobi. The more you clean the better the perks.

        Tamara herself was a one time Dobi, arnt you Tammy?

        6)Made billions of rupees in commission in the process of setting up Mihin Lanka,which never made a profit.

          Come on Percy, less hate please…not all what you say is accurate, for instance those of us who dealt with his father know that he has always been a very honest public servant be it at SL Ports or BOI or NDB

          Once again, please hate less….do not use abusive tones here and bring down the respectability of this website, and have the coursey to call even Sajin by his proper name Sajin Vaas Gunawardene

            Mr.Eshan

            You speak so highly of Sachin Vass Gona’ s father.I have personal experience of how the old man used to talk to senior officials at the BOI.Just ask those who were there in the 1990s and u sure are bound to make, in what would be for you,Sir, a serendipitous discovery.I don’t want to name the seniors here out of concern for their own safety and security.The old fellow’s stock phrases were Aiysay Miniho and Gonnoe me hay enawa aiysay.
            He rediculed them in public.
            As for Sachin Vass Gona’s ill gotten millions please check the places I have mentioned and named and u will sure make another discovery of what to others is general knowledge.Have u not read the Sunday Times of a few weeks back which bears a reference to the Castle Street address? Check the owner of the Ameythist Resort in Passikudah for instance and then defend your friend.

            As for my reference to Sachin Gona…..I think I have used a respectable term in keeping with CT standards. What he did in NY was a disgrace to our country. The millions he has robbed from this country is a crime.Sachin actually deserves a far more descriptive title than GONA.But I shall not use it here.

            @Eshan G, For someone who is so concerned about the reputation of this website you seem to have no qualms about Sajin Vass and the gang ruining the reputation of the whole country. If elder Vass Gunawardene constantly resorted to pull string to get his son out of trouble, he was not such a honest man after all, is he?

            Or are you one of those people who is so used to favoritism that you don’t see the problem with it? People like you puzzle me. You are not bothered at all by the the dishonesty, corruption and thieving (otherwise you’d raise your voice against it too) but you are so disturbed when people try to talk about it. I bet you are very “religious” too.

          Percy,

          A similar comparison of the present wealth of most Ministers and of MR especially, will bear the same. The only exception is Ranil Wickremasinghe and only a few of the UNPers. The rest of the UNPers are the same, including who have crossed over but one can be assured none can resort to corruption once RW take the reins with full powers, unlike last time where he simply could not cleanse lest he would have been betrayed as they did later.

        the late Lasantha W, was to expose this piece of sh*t quite often in the Sunday Leader at that time.

        As the insiders in the Pres secretarial have mentioned to me., he met Ma-Ra in Dubai when the latter was just a Minister of Fisheries or Labour under CBK govt in early 90’s and was asked to show around the City by then boss of Trico one Kannangara to whom Sajin used to work as a wharf clerk.

        During this tour around the Dubai, Sajin was to emphasize to the Medamulana idiot that he is very versed in the English Language as well as IT savvy like can browse the Internet and find anything you want etc and he got into the good books of Ma-Ra for ever after taking him to some of the houses of ill-fame around the city and thereafter he was the official Pimp of Ma-Ra and this boy knows every detail of Ma-Ra’s sex fantasied and that is the reason that Shiranti as well his some hate the bugger but., Ma-Ra keep him and worship him eternally.

        Another reason the rogue got this title of Monitoring MP is to take out the Rajapaksas ill gotten money which we called black money for Laundering in financial markets and also invest in some of the African bonds like they did with Madagaskar and with the Diplomatic impunity Sajin gets from the job has become an easy task.

        so., does not matter if Sajin slap even hundred Chris Nonises, this guy will keep his job until he deliver the above 2 items mentioned above.

          Putting two and two together it all falls in place. The particular
          choice of Monitoring MP over MEA and not any other Ministry is for
          the money-laundering activity most needed with the unimaginable sums
          “earned”. Gota of course took another route – the Stock Exchange
          with 3 locals who became joint-partners.

          Today, Basil claims that the Family has only a Cattle Farm! No wonder
          the Voters belong to this category given the attempt for the 3rd term.

      Your words will fall on deaf ears for sure. Decay of the Sri Lankan state will get worse before it gets better. Sri Lankan voters are utterly stupid.

      Wonder what exactly does corrupt Clan from Hamba gain by providing such high patronage, promotions, and financial advantages to:
      1. Uneducated Baggage Boy
      2. Manipulating Lady

      Somebody shine a light. Why..?

            Are you referring to the Tamils here ? Tons of Educated Tamils took a bet on Vellupillai as much the Sinhalese are betting on their boy. In both cases educating these peasants has not been much help because they educated or not they end up being gonas.

              Aren’t you asking for trouble?

              Champika Ranawaka the Doyen of Sinhala/Buddhists history believes in many things and says the Sinhala language is the oldest language in the world next only to the Hebrew. He also believes Sinhala/Buddhists invented zero.

              On the other hand Tamils believe that they are second only to Jews in intelligence and hard work (greed).

              Can you prove/confirm both these people are stupid, stupid very very stupid very very very very stupid?

        Ben Hurling,

        The problem is not with Tamara, but we have a Clown “Mama’s boy” as the opposition leader whose only job is to go to Araliya Gaha Bangalawa and have “Black Coffee” chit chatting with the Medamoolana Modalali.

        Who is covering whom.

        Had we had an opposition leader with a spine, most of these culprits should have been exposed, fined and brought to justice through Parliament and courts.

        Now we have only JVP as the “Peoples Voice” in the Parliament and on stage although they have a minute representative. Gen.Sarath Fonseka should join JVP and other strong UNPers to rescue our country.

        The crooks are even deceiving Pope in Vatican while transiting at “San Marino” Black money den.

        That’s why we need a strong opposition party, or people will take the country to their hands.

          Jayantha,

          I kindly beg to differ from your point of view that the Opposition led by RW is weak because they do not expose Corruption of the Rajapakse’s. Are you serious that people are unaware of what is happening under Rajapakse rule? The Corruption and Murders under MR is well known to the masses. Then it is the responsibility of the masses to select an individual as RW who is Honest and Decent. Is this the first time you have come to know the mockery? What have you done about it? Have you voted even once for RW without blaming him and the masses? First be honest to your self, before you run others down.

            Dear Gamini ,

            I know you are a Die hard supporter of RW , what Jayantha says is the bitter truth , we have an official opposition leader who issues fake threats to overthrow the government and thereby routinely declares the month and the year (keep changing) of the dooms day and asks masses to prepare for it , Ranil’s right hand man Long John A has done it again without any shame or guilt , i’m sure Long John has million and one excuses to justify his association with MR , but question is , what kind of people are willing to put up with these kind of continuous tragic comedies ?

            if Ranil were to contest for the PE , mark my word Gamini , MR would win the election without any computer jilmart !

      though you try to portray a different picture of conspiracy theory , it’s not , that Sajin low life character has been vested enormous powers on him by none other than your king , every body knows the reason but every body pretends that they don’t know the reason . this Sajin character was the top boss for Mihin lanka and he had acted quite similar way towards his subordinates during his tenure , as for that arrogant woman , she was the mentor for the clown prince during his time in London , both the arrogant woman and the man are quite a match and it’s made in heaven , all these are by products !

          hi NV,
          “What do you say about the above comment?”

          The west has Diego Garcia and it does not need anything better. Lankans can be their own cannon fodder. In the age of drones – the Americans are at present using drones from west midlands to pin targets in Pakistan.
          Freedom is not winning a war but has to be plucked.
          After Independence by accident Srima drove away the sterling companies`. So the west has learnt that giving full freedom to former slaves is not a good policy therefore you see a clearer picture of Hong Kong.
          2009 was just the start of a process of bringing things to order and it will take very long (even generations) because the culture is different.
          What southerners don’t understand is how Indo-Mughals (Hindians) think and work. To top it the tigers are still animals that put everyone who associates with them at least behind bars. The stupid Sihala are no different.
          The political career of Jaya is finished.
          If Jayalalitha had listened to Wiggi and kept out of Lankan politics she would be a free bird. Now she is in the same boat as LP Yadev- Disproportionate assets (very small sum of $10million or the Raj Rajaratnam)
          NaMo needs her upper house votes (40 nos) to get approval for any bill. The nation is desperate for reform will not tolerate her holding that as ransom so that Hindia assists the Jaffna Tamils who have murdered one of their dear PM’s.
          Ram Jetamalani will finally have her released with clipped wings and on condition that Tamil issue across the seas is not for her and if she does she would would go to jail- Laloo case of 2007 (not guilty and 2013 guilty now serving)
          In short Hindia will act the same way as Manmohan- Karunadhi where Lanka is concerned- the merry ground in the land of former western slaves.

    We don’t need inquires and investigations to understand, what has gone wrong in the foreign service of Sri Lanka for enough is uttered by people who has tasted the experience of its activities. JVP leader in one of his speeches clearly elaborated how once an efficient and respected overseas service of Sri Lanka was packed with political stooges who barely qualified OL with top positions to do all the corrupt, despotic activities now emanating a stink covering the whole world. Still authorities try hide all these in a manner similar to ostrich is not working. This government cannot clean this for all their muck is stacked in under External Affairs Ministry of Peris.

    To add one more thing on this ugli episode wolud be the matter that there is a string-pulling hand from behind the curtain the center stage. Sri Lanka is a country which as about 10, 000 politicial office bearers ranging from pradeshiya sabas to parliament. When you add grama sevakas in to the lot it will easily touch 35, 000. All of these people come there to do something in heart for the country and people. But string puller don’t let them work according to there consciene. Thats why he use an under-current on the entire mechanism to mislead and misguide those who want to work honestly.

    Even in the case of this attack goes like a wild fire is neither what the MP wanted to do nor the HC expected. It was the result of the ugliest minded coward, string-pullers happiness. Unfortunately he is glued to the driver’s wheel which at present locked-on in the direction of KUDU, GANJA, KASIPPU, GANIKA, HARA, MERA, WANCHA, DUSHANA, …… all pathala works. Thats why he is thrown in the baldi- kakkussiya by the rest of the world leaders.

    From this article that appeared in today’s Island it is obvious that the EAM’s cancellation of this press conference was a part of their plan of fake transparency and to buy time for another week with the hope (as it always happens) that this fizzles off in the press. The info that he is joining MR to the Vatican is another subtle message that there is no way that he will be taken to task and that all is well (again).

    “UPFA MP Sajin Vass Gunawardena, who is alleged to have slapped Sri Lanka’s High Commissioner in the UK, Dr. Chris Nonis during a function in New York recently, hurriedly summoned press conference yesterday morning, but cancelled it at the eleventh hour.

    An External Affairs Ministry official called The Island yesterday morning, to invite us for a media briefing to be given by Gunawardena at 9.30 am, but he said a little while later it would not be held due to the tight schedule of MP Gunawardena, who is also monitoring MP at the External Affairs Ministry.

    Having profusely apologised for the inconvenience caused, the extremely courteous official explained that Gunawardena had been compelled to rush to the airport and join President Mahinda Rajapaksa, who would invite Pope Francis to visit Sri Lanka early next year. “Mr. Gunawardena will hold a press conference when he returns in about a week’s time…”

        Native Vedda,

        I think JVP have understood the current day Social,political, economical and communal policies.

        Most importantly what you need is Honesty, Integrity, and discipline when governing a country and JVP has them.

        JVP understands the value of Education, Health, Labour, Investments,economy, Entrepreneurship and Visionary and direction, which most of the leading political parties do not understand.

        We need a change in Governing in Sri Lanka and to educate masses on the direction the country should lead.

        JVP is a suitable candidate.

    Who is this Nonis? Is Mr. Nonis the proprietor of a popular biscuit manufacturing establishment on the way to Galle? The “Nonis Biscuits” ?

    Biscuit or no biscuit, I felt he wasn’t that good. He did not pre-empt the British PM bull in China shop behavior in Ceylon. He tries to project “class” although fails as lacks substance.

    MR has a number of point men. Its in the designation – the “monitoring MP”. Probably no where else on the planet would you find on Minister monitoring another. It gives away the fact the monitored MP is useless.

    Prof. GL cannot be gotten rid of no matter how bad his performance. He has feathered his nest using multiple cronies. It stands to reason why he needs to be monitored. Thats where the problem is – its the Minster of external affairs.

      Imbecile,

      There is no surprise that you will stoop to any level to protect your champion Sinhala Buddhist protector! If Nonis is not capable, sack him, but beating him mercilessly is thuggery of worst kind perpetrated by the right-hand man of the president himself.

      You come here to downplay the event and smear the victim in bad light; what kind of a man are you? Do you have any values at all? I know you are an avid Sinhala Buddhist Chauvinists, but you have taken you to another lowest level. You need to look you in a mirror and ask, mirror, mirror, am I the biggest bigot around, and the answer will be resoundingly yes!

    Dear Tamara,

    MR knows what Paraba also knew. That _- Gonas dont care.
    Once you have the support of the gonas a few educated gonas will be pleased to serve you. Ocationaly it is ok to kick one of those educated gona’s on the face – because the rest the educated gonas will not really care.

    This is our culture both common to the Sinhalese and Tamils but we must fight to protect.

    I am with you.

    Dear All
    Everyone is aware of what is happening in the state of Sri Lanka and who is manupulating whom? The victims are victimized further and the oppressers or wrong doers are amply rewarded,promoted and sent as diplomutts. At least at this stage some of the bootlickers have come to their senses. The nation of Sri Lanka are up in alms, bleeding and crying but what is the use? At least Sirasa has stopped Ranil Bashing. Sirasa is now taking damage control. At one point of time, truth will prevail and the good will emerge.

    What does it mean, our mourning Tamil woman?

    Country’s sovereignty, independence, and dignity is to be defended

    You can not call everyone to support corruption, nepotism and HR violations in the name of people and support Sinhala chauvinism

    Soon or later everyone who supported this regime will be rewarded, one by one

      Whatever comes on CT does not reach the common sinhalese people. That is the whole trouble. They are oblivious to the actual politics, I should say “plundering” of the country by the thieves! All this statics should reach the common man who finds it difficult to eat three meals a day! Then only we can expect any change in this wretched country!!

      People who care about the country should educate the sinhala masses not to elect the thugs again. They are fed with false propaganda about the Tamils and Muslims and are egged on to hate them and attack them!!

    Ms Kunanayakam,

    “There is a striking coincidence between the defeat of the West along with the LTTE in 2009 and the beginnings of this Tragedy.”

    Can you please elaborate on this statement? How do you square this statement with the diplomatic triumph in May 2009 that Dr DJ brags about at every opportunity? Does this mean the total victory over the West and the LTTE completely blinded the MR gang?

    Basically you guys have helped the thug MR to build his empire! Thuggery is the only means he knows and he has been give a free platform by the likes of you, DJ, and Prof. RW and many other. Now the matters have gone beyond comprehension.

    What you are going to do now?

    Tamara,

    You all are one group under Mahinda Rajapakse to implement the genocide of Tamils. You all lied to the world about the brutal regime because he filled your pockets to tell lies. Mahinda does not need your services now. He only need the support of the BBS and other Sinhala fundamentalists to continue to enjoy the kingdom.

    Tamara,

    It’s good that you understand the real situation and nature of this thug, MR and his gang. You played certain roll in 1987-90 period when MR came to Geneva for UNHRC meetings. we are grateful for that. ( You are the one who helped him to get in to meetings from back door. Then he help you to represent Sri Lanka in later stage. You and him were friends. Now only you see his govt. doing wrong and want to defend our country from these culprits! We knew this before he came to power . We asked not to do that. Now we all pay the price for it. Start from the begining now. Nonis case is only a minor incident. What about all other incidents like Lasantha, Ratupaswala etc. We all forgot, arnt we?

    May add the following also to the list of assets of Sajin.

    1. Luxury house in Chiswick, London
    2. Luxury Flat in Singapore- His third wife lives there with his children.

    He is a very enterprising character. He collected all these assets after he started working with MARA.

      Don’t forget his 23 room mansion in Toorak, Melbourne, in the millionaires’ row and the block of 16 apartments in Pitt Street, Sydney City Centre.

      He is part owner of the racehorse Black Caviar, (Australian Thoroughbred undefeated in 25 races) with the Emir of Kuwait.

      He also owns a vineyard (350 Ha) in Borossa Valley, South Australia.

      I just thought adding these few in to the list before people forget.

    Re the above by Percy, why cant the Bribery Commissioner who himself is under the threat of JVP investigate the Properties belongs to Sajin Vass THEN & NOW? He should be sent to jail for life following Jayalalitha in India. Otherwise we Srilankans seek a genuine Bribery Commissioner like Ian Wickramanayaka to this country.

    Will the Bribery Commission investigate the source of his wealth and take action accordingly?

      Never. Dont expect feathers from turtles. THis regime is so corrupted. Only option is to change this regime first. Then we can force next one to act accordingly. However, as far as civil society stays aside and calm with just watching whats going on, no doubt, they will do the same.

    Dear Tamara

    You, Nonis and all the others that have been thrown in the bin reserved for used condoms should know that His Majesty is only emulating his predecessors, the despotic Kings of Kandy.

    Interestingly enough, it was the cruelty and arbitrary executions of the Kandyan Kings that caused the Kandyan Chiefs to ask for outside intervention in the affairs of the State and sign the Kandyan Treaty asking the British to takeover. Will that desperate desire for outside help in 2014-15 result in UN intervention via the UNHRC, and British (+US, EU, and Canadian) sanctions in 2015? It is indeed an interesting parallel. Refer:

    http://www.gutenberg.org/files/14346/14346-h/14346-h.htm

    Robert Knox wrote of King Rajasinghe II as follows. Quote:

    I mentioned before, that young Men of the best Families in the Land, are sought out to wait upon the King in his Court. These after they have served here some small time, and have as it were but seen the Court, and known his Customs and Manners, he requiteth them BY CUTTING OFF THEIR HEADS and putting them into their Bellies.Then he recruits his Slain out of the Countries, by giving Orders to his Dissava’s or Governors to send him others to Court. Whither they go like an Ox to the Slaughter, but with far more heavy hearts.

    …those that are employed in the Palace, enjoy this favour, …until such time as they are discharged from the King’s Employment; which is always either by EXECUTION , or by being given to somebody for perpetual Bondmen.

    And after he is killed, tho’ for what no man knows, he is accounted a REVEL and TRAITOR against the King: and then his Father’s House, Land and Estate is seized on for the King. ….but oftentimes he punisheth all his Generation; it may be kills them alltogether, or gives them all away for Slaves. He seems to be naturally disposed to Cruelty: For he sheds a great deal of blood, and gives no reason for it. His Cruelty appears both in the Tortures and Painful deaths he inflicts, and in the extent of his punishments, viz, upon whole Families for the miscarriage of one in them. For when the King is displeased with any, he does not alwayes command to kill them outright, but first to torment them, which is done by cutting and pulling away their flesh by Pincers, burning them with hot Irons clapped to them to make them confess of their Confederates; and this they do, to rid themselves of their Torments, confessing far more than ever they saw or knew. After their Confession, sometimes he commands to hang their two Hands about their Necks, and to make them eat their own flesh, and their own Mothers to eat of their own Children; and so to lead them thro the City in public view to terrifie all, unto the place of Execution, the The Dogs follow Prisoners to execution.Dogs following to eat them. For they are so accustomed to it, that they seeing a Prisoner led away, follow after. At the place of Execution, there are alwayes some sticking upon Poles, others hanging up in quarters upon Trees; besides, what lyes killed by Elephants on the ground, or by other ways. This place is alwayes in the greatest High-way, that all may see and stand in awe. For which end this is his constant practice.

      Good advertistment for Sinhalese culture and civilisation that we must protect at all cost. Yes the foreigners liberated the Sinhalese and sadly the Sinhalese army liberated the Tamils from thier tryant at a massive human cost. while the educated monkeys played games in order to orotect thier culute.

What you are stating is what others saw long before, but you were happy to lick the crumbs that fell from the King’s table. You are part of the trio namely your good self, Dayan and Rajiva.
    All of you have been used and, Rajiva is continue to be used by the execrable and odious regime. whose days hopefully are numbered.

    Most of the SVG’s assets belong to the Rajapakse’s and he is just the holder. Do you think they are stupid to allow bag-boys and pimps to get rich on their dime?

    So, SGV, Dammika Perera, Sumal Perera et al are simply laundering the stolen wealth of Sri Lanka and of course they get to enjoy some of the benefits while it lasts.

    Like there were some instant millionaires in Europe, US and Canada when the LTTE collapsed in 2009, the Rajapakses will learn their lesson when things turn sour for them, and their ‘investment friends’ don’t return their calls!

    KP has provided the Rajapakses’ a substantial portion of the LTTE assets he controlled, in exchange for his life!

    Tamara,

    You trio (Dayan, Tamara, Rajiva) keep talking, if not boasting, about how you saved Sri Lanka in the 2009 sessions. We would truly like to know what is it exactly that you saved us from? Can you tell us what is the worst that could have happened if in 2009 you three didn’t jointly object to an independent investigation?

    Hasn’t the development since 2009 proved the ancient wisdom “a stitch in time saves nine?” Had we encouraged rather than obstruct the investigation, the remedies would have been prompt and we could have risen rather than steadily stumble downwards ever since. Aren’t you three wholly responsible for the nightmare that you three jointly set in motion in 2009?

    Hope you at least have the integrity to explain and hopefull take responsibility rather than just opportunistically demonize everyone you revered until you were cast aside a couple of years ago.

      Sarath Fernando,

      I think you have mixed up Educated, qualified, well respected and well versed with the subject matter with public relation qualities of Diplomatic officers to mere uneducated, unqualified, not well versed bunch of unqualified, political thugs, cronies, jokers and clowns. They do not serve the country but themselves and their families and friends.

      If you see the officers that represented Sri Lanka in 2009/ 2010 compared with the “Nades” in 2011,2012,2013 and 2014 at the UNHRC you can see the difference.

      It was not the real qualified Sri Lankan Foreign Ministry staff, but a bunch of no nothing, Swollen Head, False pride political jokers who know nothing of the subject matter or Public Relations or Diplomacy who represented Sri Lanka and due to this we lost all the UNHRC resolutions since 2009.

      In India it takes 15 years of Diplomatic Experience and Knowledge at their local Foreign Ministry, before been posted to a foreign country. Where Sri Lanka Stands today. Even Tea salesmen, uneducated political jokers and clowns are been posted as Diplomats to leading Western countries and this is wrong. This happens only in Banana Republics.

      That’s why we need to overhaul of our Diplomatic staff before it’s too late.

        Jayantha,

        You missed the point completely (- perhaps not unintentionally though!)

        I am not asking why the resolutions after the 2009 one were lost.

        My question is “what exactly did Dayan trio save us from in blocking the vote in 2009”. What is the worst that would have happened if Dayan had not succeeded in blocking the vote 2009? Perhaps you want to volunteer to answer that.

        That question has nothing to do with the concern you are trying to focus on – “why Sri Lanka failed to impress (or was it hoodwink) the internationals in the resolutions that came after 2009.” Two different issues.

        For one thing, if Sri Lanka had not blocked that initiative in 2009, we will not be having all the repugnant embarrassments since 2009 through the current sessions, and we would not have witnessed the growth and establishment of an arrogant diabolic regime as Dayan himself chooses to describe the current regime that he revered until about half a year ago.

    No sooner I saw D & R I knew T will follow. Three are the famous fixers of state sponsored corruption, everything was fine as long as they were in the inner circle and pampered with state funds.

    Sajin might not be educated as these three but he is doing the same thing these people were doing. Only thing is he is doing it better, one reason for MR to discard them like a used condom.

      You might remember that Tammy was indeed a friend of Prabhakaran. In 1983 as the riots spread the Eelam lobby was trying to whip up hatred.

      On 29th July she sent a telex to the World Council of Churches:

      ‘Just received news that Vevettiturai town has been razed and all inhabitants killed….Navy has killed 1,000 in Trincomalee….Two refugee camps in Colombo have been attacked….Food supplies to Jaffna are being blocked by the Army…Our sources of information are UNDP Colombo, NORAD, Colombo and Tamil Information Centre, London’
