Commonwealth Chief Is Stooge Of Sri Lanka Regime – Canadian Envoy

Canada has launched a direct assault on the authority of the Commonwealth secretary general, attacking him as a stooge for a Sri Lankan regime it accuses of serious Human Rights  abuses.

On Tuesday Hugh Segal, Canada’s special envoy to the Commonwealth, accused Kamalesh Sharma of “acting as a shill [a stooge] for the Sri Lankan leadership, defending their every mistake”.

    Indians are easily corruptible. However Commonwealth should take the allegation of one of its senior members seriously and investigate how the CHOGAM was let to take place in Colombo despite opposition from IC.

      Would you mind defining the IC for us? Is it only Canada? Coz’ all others are on the way to a beach and sun long weekend in Sri Lanka.

      PS: Commonwealth should find out how its HQ is located in London. As you know UK has committed serious war crimes all over the world. Most notably in Iraq under Tony Blair’s able leadership, waging an illeagal war.

      Why single out Sri Lanka only?

      Cheers!

        what I am saying is Commonwealth should investigate Kamlesh Sharma.

          May be so.

          However, in that case Commonwealth should also investigate how so many member nations were used as staging territories for LTTE attacks on Sri Lanka over 30 years.

          To name a few Canada, UK, Australia, South Africa, India, Malaysia, Singapore & New Zealnd etc.

          All these nations tolerated LTTE terrorists, while VP was ripping apart Sri Lanka.

          Cheers!

        I am opposed to all forms of discrimination therefore I suggest you take all of them to ICC including Sri Lanka.

      Hugh Segal is juging others by his standards. This ‘thattaya’ is paid by the Israeli government to find other countries to keep UN heat away from Isreal. His omination to Canadian parliament is all sponsored by the lobby. there.

    Secretary General Sharma speaks the minds of the Commonwealth Heads of government and has no conscientious view of his own and the Heads collude to hide their human rights violations and disrespect their own people.

      Poisonous brew drunk by some CHOGs:

      ” I attended the Annual Commonwealth Foreign Ministers Meeting (CFAMM). The Australian Foreign Minister briefed the meeting on the preparations for the CHOGM in October. Most of the developing countries that spoke including Sri Lanka, questioned the value addition of a Commonwealth Charter prepared by compiling all existing rules and declarations. Also, they were vigorously opposed to the proposed recommendations of the EPG, in particular regarding the establishment of a Commonwealth Commissioner on Democracy and the Rule of Law; also, they expressed reservation on the reallocation of current budgets to meet the cost of new proposals. Concerns were expressed on the revitalisation of the Commonwealth Ministerial Action Group (CMAG) as contained in its report. Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the UK were among the few who spoke in favour of these recommendations of the EPG. This demonstrated that it was a few players of the Association which were pursuing the inclusion of a punitive role, which would cause a split in the organization” – Report to the Cabinet of Ministers by External Affairs Minister: Post conflict development in Sri Lanka

    Shills, Shills. Shills.

    In Sri Lanka, there are a number of Shills. The State controlled media and other places are full of shills. Daily, News. times, Island etc etc.

    There are ministers who are shills.

    There are MPs who are shills.

    There are Buddhist Monks who are shills.

    Shills, Shills, Shills.

    Resplendent Shill Land.

    The dirty Indians are using him to protect the Rajapaksa regime. During the war the dirty Indians used UN’s Vijay Nambiar to protect the regime from criticism that allowed the carnage to take place. Wonder what will happen to Rajapaksa when Modi takes over!

    He is a despicable corrupt Indian, an insult to Indians with integrity. He will be responsible for finally pulling down the Commonwealth for which the other members who have an interest in it will never forgive. He will be remembered forever for this. Bensen

    Vijay Nambiar who mis directed the UN chief, in regard to the Srilankan war. Kamalesh Sharma who is a stooge of Rajapakse regime, is mis directing the Commonwealth Secretariat, and its members. He should be taken to task as early as possible. The Canadian Govt must take the lead.

      “Vijay Nambiar who mis directed the UN chief, in regard to the Srilankan war.”

      The Hindians including Bandari, Siva Shankaran Menon, Nambiar brothers, Narayanan, MGR, Karunanithy, Nedumaran, Vaiko, Seeman, Thiruma, Dixit, Nirubama Rao,….. played their roles as expected by the Hindian establishment supported by the International Community.

      International Community including Ban Ki Moon, Milliband,Simmon Huges …………and others played their roles too.

      All were in this together. The writing was on the wall.

      Only the stupid Tamils didn’t notice it.

      Don’t blame others blame yourself.

      Siva Sankaran:
      Have you no shame, taking on a Tamil name while being a Sinhala Buddhist racist?
      Sharma is to the Sri Lankan government what the government is constantly accusing its critics of being: A PAID LACKEY.This man has revealed himself by his actions – CONCEALING INFORMATION THAT THE COMMONWEALTH SECRETARIAT HAS ASKED FOR FROM EXPERTS IN THE FIELD FROM THOSE WHO REQUESTED IT!
      What more is in store in this effort to cover the behind of the Sri Lankan government from this Indian bribed, like so many other Indians, to do the bidding of the Rajapassas?

          “this bogus turd skin just copied the name of a brahmin blogger like me on topix. this bogss monkey is a pig eating swine.”

          Let me get this clear:

          Siva Sankaran Sarma is a turd skin, bogus monkey, and a pig eating pig wants to be a Brahmin Blogger.

          I am bit confused hence I request a clarification.

            native veddha, bogus siva sankaran sarma is an identity thief. he has stolen the name of a brahmin blogger in topix where this monkey was a poster. i met this swine under a different name on topix. real siva sankaran sarma still posts on topix. he posts from australia. i hope this clarifies the position.

              You should endevour to do justice to the animals by not naming Siva Sankaran Sarma Menon as pigs and swines.

              Man you are driven by your emotions and hatred which would ultimately destroy you as a person. We have already witnessed it in Mullivaaikkal.

              Try humour as a cure you will see the world differently and your messages will be effective as you wish them to be.

        Siva Sankaran Sarma is having fun. He is not motivated by any malicious intent.

        On the one hand he is exposing the stupidity of the ruling clan and the Sinhala/Buddhist in a subtle way on the other he takes a negative stand to support the minorities.

        In between he is trying his best to expose the international communities cherished hypocrisy.

        If I were you I wouldn’t worry too much of this “do gooder”.

    Kamalesh Shill Sharma must be subjected to an independent Commonwealth investigation to determine his role in covering up the war crimes and crimes against humanity of his masters – the Sri Lankan regime.

    If the Commonwealth cannot do it they should get the help of the UN.

    It is urgent before he taints the Commonwealth’s name for good, just as MaRa will be doing if he assumes its headship.

      Kamlesh Sharma has brought the Commonwealth movement to disrepute.
      A strong and senior Commonwealth power like Canada openly castigating him is sufficient reason for him to move out with some grace. His openly covering the truant Rajapakses for years now is suspect and is
      now bazaar talk. Sharma and Subramaniam Swamy – what sort of saviours of the Rajapakse regime??? Nothing comes free in this world. Say what!!

    Canadian interpretation seems to be that the whole world is wrong while only Canada is right. This is what happens when a coward and a moron for a Prime Minister has to depend on refugees and criminals to vote him into office.

    Canada you got a long way to go and you can shove your five million dollars of aid you give annually to Sri Lanka up your you know where.

    Canada is isolated and an unhappy child that need to appease the tamil vote bank. Canadian PM Harper’s desperation for votes to hang onto power has place domestic politics ahead of international politics.

    Kamalesh Sharma represents all Commonwealth member states and the voice to all states not just Canada’s. If anything he is the stooge of all these states.

    Stephen Harper is not in ‘love’ with Tamil Canadians, in fact he hated them in the beginning, but now he needs their votes for sure. But Harper’s reasons for not attending CHOGM has many un disputable and valid points. What Sri Lankan Govt did and doing are total crimes against humanity and un excusable. No one is clean though but they are powerful nations and not poor beggars like Silly Lanka.
