Continuous Chaos In Parliament Underscores Need For International Input In War Crimes Investigations: Wigneswaran

Former Chief Minister of the Northern Province, Justice C.V. Wigneswaran said the continuous chaos in the legislature of Sri Lanka underscores the need for international input into the war crimes investigations.

Chief Minister CV Wigneswaran

“The World community will now be able to gauge if this is how peers and equals in Parliament are treated by our Parliamentarians most of whom belong to the majority community, how their soldiers would have treated the minority communities under their complete authority and power. The World community should now realise why we insist on International input into the war crimes’ inquiry,” Wigneswaran said responding to a media query.

He also added, “No Sri Lankan Government will grant anything to Tamils and the responsibility to solve the ethnic conflict lies with the International Community. The International Community should now act with greater responsibility knowing the type of people they are dealing with to place a proper war crimes’ investigation mechanism before the forthcoming UNHRC sessions in Geneva regardless of who is in power in Sri Lanka. Current constitutional crisis should not in any way be given consideration for giving more time to Sri Lanka to implement the consensus resolution. The world community should take appropriate steps instead to help the victims of Sri Lankan military brutality. As for your question, my response is ‘I am not surprised’.”

    Wigneswaran is Absolutely right,
    the Sinhalese politicians cannot be trusted to acted in the interests of the “others”: Tamils, Muslims etc.

    Before the Sinhalese mobs are let loose on the minorities, the international community must act.

      Best let Chinese take this land.
      They will never show any discrimination.
      They will not talk only their gun will talk if any Modayas challenge them.
      In Malaysia ..Ceylon Tamils are highly respected by Chinese.
      Moreover Chinese know the talents of Tamils.
      Tamil can teach a unforgetable lesson to poverty India if Chinese have command here.

        The Chinese have over a million Muslims of Xinjiang Province in so called “education camps” trying to make them like the Han Chinese, the majority community. Perhaps they will make us all Chinese after they take over, even if physically difficult.

        Better option – let the Chinese help relocate the Tamils back to Tamilnadu. You can show your talents and whatever else you want in your homeland Tamilnadu freely.

          Punchi brain,
          You really are scared of Tamils ,eh? You know very well that a race of three-wheeler drivers and fake tooth-worshippers can never compete with Tamils on a level playing field.
          Never mind Tamilnadu, why are your own women running away to Dubai, and your men to Australia? Why is your passport so low in ranking? Use your little brain if you have one.

      Easiest way to create chaos in Sri Lanka is to let loose violence on minorities like what has happened in the past. There is every chance that this will be resorted to by either of the contending parties and this time it will not only be against Tamils but also against Muslims. I will not be surprised that some foreign agency may be working with some Sinhala elements to start it, so that they can intervene militarily on behalf of the minorities. Time has now come to save Tamils from Sinhala terrorists and even if 40,000 Sinhalese are killed to liberate Tamils, it will not be considered a crime.

      “OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE: @MaithripalaS has removed IP Nishantha Silva from the CID to buckle high profile cases involving the murders of Lasantha, Eknaligoda, abductions of Keith, Poddala and assault on Upali. He is key officer questioning @GotabayaR” – M. A. Ratna twitter.

      It is clear now to all Sri Lankan’s and the world that President Maithripala Sirisena has been the one protecting the Rajapaksa Criminal Network right along.

      Looks like Maithripala Sirisena would have to be added to the list of the Rajapaksa Criminal Network that will be handed over to the International Criminal Courts.

      Time the citizens of Sri Lanka demand these criminals holding our country hostage are handed over to the International Criminal Courts.

    Well said Wiggi.

    Now the so called international community saw the circus of modayas inside parliament.
    The respect they gave to Speaker is a international joke today.
    Indeed most of the MPs are not qualified to enter the Parliament..many are thugs and rowdies.
    Modayas are unable to run an airline …how can they run a country ?.
    Their asset is only Tamil racism and poor village Podi Menikes & Punchi Bandas.

    Wiggi should seriously think about contesting for next Presidential election ..let all the Tamils vote for you and no Sinhala candidate will get 51% must go for re run .We can show them a super circus.

    By doing this Tamils can show who are they to local and international communities.

    Confused Sillisna and Super Confused Mahinda Rajapakshe have misused the Institute of the Parliament of Srilanka and the Constitution .
    Initially Rajapashe was a member of the SLFP and crowned Unceremoniously by the Sillisena as the Prime minister of SL on the 26 th of October.
    Few days later Fake PM declared that he joins SLPP THE Pohottuwa Party the Opposition Party.
    How on earth and what Parliamentary Constitution says , the Fake PM was able to leave SLFP and join Pohottuwa??
    This is a Constitutional Blunder.
    How the Opposition Jokers ( Joint Oppositions ) unelected oppositions became the overnight sensation because the Fake PM consolidated his membership with the SLPP.
    HOW??
    Srilankan Politics and its administration had become the world’s first KITCHEN POLITICS with Kusiammas abandoning the Constitution and washing up .
    Who can buy all these Lies and dramas.

    However there should be no ELECTION before the ” KITCHEN GOVERNMENT” is dissolved and PROVEN NULL following the NCM majority which had been passed not once but twice with sounding majority.
    The same PM from the majority Party should be replaced at once.
    It’s up to him and his Party to nominate a new leader as the PM.

    Correct Legislation should be followed.
    We cannot have 3 prime ministers at one time.
    No election at this juncture. The Fake PM should be dumped and make way for the majority party to take charge first.
    I’m sure that would be the Right Move . I’m sure the Law makers too would nod to say the Right move .
    Undo the MESS firstly made by Sillisena Rajapakshe combo.
    Bring back the Parliament to function as we expected.
    The tax payers money and the Foreign aid too had been thrashed and smashed by the so called FAKE Government and its members.
    They should be punished severely.
    Thank god , there was no murder in the Parliament of SL. The peoples Parliament House.

      What is all this Bullshit talk about war crimes from Tamil politicians ??????
      If they open their unwashed mouths it is all about war crimes, war crimes & WAR CRIMES.
      What about the undocumented WAR CRIMES committed by the effing LTTE and Prabha the wanker.?????? Are those not war crimes or are they war games.
      Thank God & MR the bloody LTTE was and is wiped out.
      Most probably if the LTTE was still in power today the tamil politicians would be in hiding under their beds with their fingers stuck up their rear shivering in fright.

      Yes go ahead and insist that they investigate war crimes committed by Tamils, but it should run parallel with investigation of war crimes committed by Sinhalese as both were committed at the same time. Asking Tamils to be tried first amounts to racial discrimination and travesty of justice. Unfortunately almost all Tamils who committed war crimes have either been killed in combat or were murdered after surrendering which itself a war crime, and in law there is no case if the perpetrator of a crime is dead. Other Tamils who had committed war crimes like Karuna and Pillayan are now darlings of the Sinhalese and will not be tried for their deeds. So now it is time to bring to justice Sinhalese and even Muslims who had committed war crimes who are roaming freely, while Tamils who had either committed minor crimes or some no crime at all held in custody by forced confession are in Prison without being brought to trial for more than 15 years. International intervention is absolutely necessary as Sri Lanka judicial system consisting of Police, Bar and the Bench are institutionally racist and Tamils will never get justice under this set up.

      Eagle ‘Blind’ Eye, oh fantastic. No worries about the International buddies. The moment they land in Colombo, ex-LTTE members such as Karuna Amman, Pillayan, Daya Master, KP Pathmanathan, Eniyabatayhy and EPDP killer Devananda can go to receive them at the airport in Government vehicles which they are driving around now. We can sit down and talk about what happened to the 600 surrendered cops who were slaughtered by Karuna Amman, hundred’s of thousands who died because of all the arms KP Pathmanathan arranged for the LTTE, politicians who were assassinated by LTTE/TMVP/EPDP fellows…….oh no the list is too long. I think this should be good enough until you provide a rebuttal.

First try to educate your politicians .Try to send people who could command self respect asMP’S(at least they can use their brains).Do you know your President spoke at UN to celebrate NelsoMandela’s centenary .with out knowing the similarity between NM and VPrabaharan. Both were freedom fighters both were classified by respective government as terrorist.If VP was alive he too would command the same respect asNM. I rest my case,for you learn the truth.Why did any take arms to defend the unscrupulous rulers.

    This is a “Sinhala” problem.
    The Tamils got twined in aiding and abetting a regime change, and propping up an aimless so called good governance government, without any check and balances, which failed to deliver the expectations of its people, expectations of the Tamil victims and of the international community.
    The Tamils are continuously being misled by a corruptive few. This after 70 years of history, more so now nearly 10 years after the Mullivaikkal War, and with 3 years of unity government.
    The current chaotic situation is very clear in that, with power hungry corrupted politicians, in a majoritarian Singhalese chauvinistic parliament, has now become “unworkable”, with a defective constitution. Our leaders are promoting for a new constitution believing that it will safe guard all our rights, again open to interpretation and/if implemented. They are not sure what is in it.
    The Tamils need to understand that a “home grown” political solution for the Tamils will never ever be possible, based on the 70 year history of suppression, subjugation, racial programs, colonization and genocide on the Tamil people in our Homeland.
    A united Tamil collective voice is needed to call upon the international community to intervene and help resolve and not prolong the pain and plight of the Tamils in the island and to stop the structural genocide in the Tamil Homeland.
    If 36 of the 47 members of the UN HR Council, have co-sponsored a resolution 30/1, which signifies that war crimes, crimes against humanity may have been committed, and that needs an international independent investigation with foreign judges, lawyers and prosecutor, what more do the need.
    If the violence spills over to the streets, the international community has an obligation and responsibility (R2P) – Right to Protect the Tamils and Muslims in the island.

    By kicking out Ranil President Sirisena did a great thing. If Ranil went on for another one and a half years, there will not be a country for Sinhalayo. Demalu will grab Northern part of the country; Wahabis will grab Eastern part of the country and foreigners will grab rest of the country and few pockets here and there in North and East.

    Wiggy says “No Sri Lankan Government will grant anything to Tamils and the responsibility to solve the ethnic conflict lies with the International Community”

    Is it true 100 %.

    It may be true that Tamils may not have got everything they wanted,but it is incorrect to say that nothing was granted to Tamils since 1956,

    A lo was done and a lot has to be done,to the satisfaction of Tamils.

    But international community could only help in the short run.

    Remember Sri Lankan Tamils are a tiny community for the international community to persist for a longer period in finding a solution acceptable to Tamils

    Could Wiggy come out with a realistic strategy to win the rights of Tamils permanently.?

        From where did the Sinhala people originate ? they too came from India/Orissa area, by kalathony headed by prince Vijay’s according to Mahavamsa history ,He married to the princess quaveni deposedher, then he Vijay’s married the princess from Pandiyakingdom also his rebel mates the700 odd gangsters they to got married to Demalu girls from that land,were the forefathers of these rebel group present today in Srilakan parliament .Where should these people go May I ask you you know that they were the rejects from India. India would reject them, even now.Do you want them sent where? .Should they be sent to the land of human originAfrica,or China? Your choice please.May I suggest the island would revert back as paradise, rather than remain as Banana Republic under the Sinhala morons unable to govern ?

          Other than the original migration from Benga//Orissa area , all other migrations to the island was from South India and from the then Tamil country. Present day Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Southern Karnataka and Andhra,. These South Indian (Tamil ) invaders and immigrants are the actual ancestors of the present day Sinhalese. Contribution from North East Indian immigrants in minimal but they keep on harping on them ,as they really do not want to acknowledge that the Sinhalese are largely of Tamil descent and it is the Tamil language and culture than has contributed and given birth to the Sinhalese language people and culture. Elu is a semi Tamil dialect. Old Sinhalese Hela = Elu+ Prakrit and was very close to its Tamil mother , than modern Sinhalese . Sinhalese grammar , alphabet, lexicon and syntax is 100% derived from Tamil. Everything about the Sinhalese food, dress, music, dance, culture , the festivals they celebrate and even the gods they worship ( other than Lord Budda) is from the Tamils and not any other Indian people. Yet they hate Tamils and deny this obvious truth.. Half the present day Sinhalese population are purely descended from recent South Indian( Tamil ) largely low caste/untouchable migrants who migrated to the island a few centuries ago , during the Portuguese/Dutch colonial era as indentured/slave labour and now they are all beating the Sinhalese Aryan anti Tamil drum to hide their real origin.

      Sri _Krish. You are wrong in many counts. Al lot has been done to the Tamils .Yes indeed , genocide , large scale ethnic cleansing and stealing of their lands , especially in the east and now starting in the north too. In the east not only the Sinhalese but even Muslims, who are immigrants from South India and ethnically Tamil and were given refuge in the east by the eastern Tamils have committed , war crimes and ethnic cleansing on the eastern Tamils and many of them who were responsible for this are now holding high positions and walking around freely. The Tamil population have been reduced from 28% at the time of independence to 16% within 70 years. They are systematically denied higher education , language and employment rights. Now the occupying Sinhalese armed forces police and illegal Sinhalese and some Muslims settlers are denying them a living in their own areas by illegally occupying their lands. The indigenous Eelam Tamil population from the north and east have very ancient history in the island and have far more right to the land than the Sinhalese ., who are largely descended from South Indian invaders, immigrants and low caste Indian Tamil coolie workers but now claim that they are truly indigenous and not the Eelam Tamils. The world has intervened for population that are far less in number than the Sri Lankan Tamils and created states , that are far less viable than Eelam . In many instances unlike the Eelam Tamils , who had a long history of a nationhood , these people never were a nation before . Like East Timor, South Sudan, Kosovo and many other people. The Eelam Tamils numbering around 3.5 million worldwide have had their own nation and history , that the Sinhalese are now trying to erase. What is realistic tell me, as the Sinhalese are not agreeable to anything other than the genocide of the Tamils

    YOU can see the racist Sinhalese chaotic Sinhalese mindset , whilst all the chaos is taking place down south and a dangerous cyclone is soon to hit the north , an extremist Sinhalese Buddhist monk, Sinhalese racists aided and abetted by prominent Sinhalese lawyers and the racist occupying Sinhalese armed forces are busy installing a Budda Statue on the site of a Pilliar Hindu temple they destroyed and are having an opening ceremony to establish the statue. This a deliberate calculated move , as they know due the imminent cyclone the local Tamil population are inside their homes and will not come out to protest , whilst they install and establish on a Budda statue , where a statue of the Hindu god Ganesha stood. This is deliberate planned calculated genocide . Proves despite all the chaos and infighting the Sinhalese and the Sinhalese parties are united in the persecution and genocide of the island’s Tamils. Well down Vigneshwaran , what you state is 100% true.

        Show the IC that C V Vigneswaran wears western style underwear and not traditional Tamil/Sinhalese amude.

        “We will show all the Kovils in Sinhala areas. That will be the end of the story.”

        That would be the beginning of a great story.
        There is enough evidence to show how, when, where, …. Hindu temples, Mosques, Churches have been destroyed and buried under the rubble.

        There would be numerous possibilities to show them how newly constructed Buddha statues hide mass graves. …………………………………….

    CV can point out that now Old Royal only firing the rockets. But when it is against Tamil UNP & SLFP get together and fire. Ranil is the one stalled Chandrika’s reforms. IC must realize because they put Ranil to lead the National Unity government, it failed to materialize anything in reconciliation of investigation.

    Wigneswaran is getting old & irrational. Anger hate and Brooding over past only damage the tamils more
    War Crime investigation is least priority. It is best to forget past and think of the poor people in war torn areas. They are not as privilaged as the Ex CM or Gajendrakumar etc
    We have to live with other races in the country in harmony
    Get some political solution to the living and their children.
    Talking about war crimes , even tigers should be investigated. They killed lot of innocent civilians of all races. VP is or was equally culpable of war crimes.

      War crimes investigation is not necessary if Sinhalese grant the rights of Tamils to their lands and power in a meaningful and fair manner and leave. This is what happened in both East Timor and South Sudan, where war crimes were not pursued unlike in Bosnia or Rwanda where the rulers refused to grant justice. As long as the Sinhala security forces who have committed atrocities remain among Tamils you cannot expect them to forget, as out of sight is out of mind. At the same time when injustices are being continued against Tamils, you cannot expect them to forgive. So without trying to distract the issue, attend to it if you want to escape ignominy.

        Dr. Gnana Sankaralingam,
        “if Sinhalese grant the rights of Tamils to their lands and power in a meaningful and fair manner and leave”
        Why should Sinhalayo give land rights and power to descendants of invaders, slaves brought by colonial pigs and Kallathonis who entered illegally who are occupying land once belonged to Sinhalayo. You guys leave and return to your ancestral land in the other side of Palk Strait or learn to live accepting your status in this country. You guys cannot have more than equal status enjoyed when your people were licking the a** of Suddas.

        Demanding to carve out a separate Tamil state in the Sinhalese island is what is atrocious and unjust. Any international input and investigations should also involve international law experts about how Sri Lanka can relocate the Tamils back to their homeland Tamilnadu, with or without Tamils cooperation. This is of utmost importance for the betterment of both Tamil and Sinhalese future generations.
         
        Sankaralingam and Siva Sankaran Sarma, do not imagine for a moment that your fake fabricated bogus history is going to take you anywhere else than back to Tamilnadu.

          If proper archaeological survey is done in Sri Lanka, then the international legal experts will have to find a way in translocating Sinhalese to their original homes in Bangladesh. In modern times fabricated bogus Sinhala history will not be accepted.

            Why Bangladesh?
            Like your ancestors they too came from Tamil Nadu/Kerala of Southern India.

            The nerve of these immigrant Tamils! You want the indigenous Sinhalese to give you the Sinhalese island and go to your homeland Tamilnadu or Bangladesh!! LMAO. Do you find a Sinhalese country in Tamilnadu or Bangladesh?? LOL. Get it into your disturbed Tamil heads that you people are a recent diaspora of Tamilnadu, while the Sinhalese are indigenous to this island. You have come here by massacring the Sinhalese and ethnic cleansing the Sinhalese from the north of the Sinhalese island.
             
            For a people to be indigenous to a place, that place has be the place where they evolved into a distinct nation with their own language and culture. This island has not produced anything Tamil ever. Everything Tamil was formed and produced in Tamilnadu and then was brought here through invasion and occupation, while everything Sinhalese was indigenously formed here. You can’t compete with the Sinhalese on this. Tamils are simply indigenous only to Tamilnadu, because that is where the Tamils first became a people and a nation. Sinhalese and the Veddas are the only people that this island ever produced. Up until late 19th century, the Tamils had the decency to respect the Sinhalese as the indigenous people of this island and never claimed anything else than that they had come from the opposite coast and settled here. Only after the British started their communal politics the Tamils started to manufacture these dumb theories in order to compete with the Sinhalese, which has now turned into a comedy, with Tamils trying to rob Sinhalese cultural and historical heritage and half of the island based on these nonsensical theories. Tamils simply do not have any grounds to claim a separate state based on historical grounds. Tamil homeland is Tamilnadu, and nowhere else.

              What an idiotic statement! What did the Sinhalese invent? Buddhism? Kavum/ kokis/ idiappa/aappa/ pittu/ Kandyan dance/ sarong /saree/ osariya / wheels/toddy …….?
              NONE of the above . Don’t be such a pitiful ignoramus. There is no such thing as a “Sinhalese.” You are all Tamils .

                So if I ate Pizza today that would make me Italian? Kandyan dance, sarong, saree and osariya are not from Tamilnadu. Kavum and Kokkis are also not from Tamilnadu. Thosai, Vadai and Idli on the hand are from Tamilnadu, and is consumed by a good many Sinhalese daily. Kandyan dance is peculiar to Sinhalese. Peculiar Sinhalese dance is mentioned in Tamil literature. https://dsalsrv04.uchicago.edu/cgi-bin/app/tamil-lex_query.py?page=1404

                No such thing as Sinhalese must be the reason you Tamils have been fighting a war with the Sinhalese? LMAO
                If you had written that in your asylum application you would have been shipped right back, now would you not? Read the entries in page 1404 in the Madras Tamil lexicon – maybe the ancient Tamils were hallucinating?

            BTW, Sinhalese do not need to fabricate any history, their very existence as a distinct nation in this island and the fact that they are not found anywhere else prove all the history there needs to be proven.
            In the case of the Tamils you are not a distinct nation. You are just an immigrant community with all your history and cultural heritage in Tamilnadu. Tell me what part of the Tamil history was made here? You talk of Tolkkappiyam, Sangam literature, Manimekalai, Silapadikaram, Thirukural, Nannul, Viracholium etc. etc. but none of it is written here. Everything is from Tamilnadu.

            What kind of comments are these? Why does Colombo Telegraph allow these vulgar comments full of personal attacks and name calling? Surely one should be able to disagree and present their arguments without this display of vulgarity. Should I also start replying to all these vulgar comments with equal lowly comments? I most certainly won’t since I could not get to that disgusting low level even if I try. This is just so disgusting…. Tamils most certainly should be relocated to Tamilnadu with all their vulgarity and violence with them.

      How do you measure political failures?
      If that is the case none in the parliament can remain as MP and should find their way to Ashrams. We need more Ashrams than temples and hospitals.

    LTTE did a mistake by killing Rajiv Gandhi. India did the mistake by helping SL eliminate LTTE. Now India feels insecure without LTTE in the region… Something fishy..

      Yes something fishy is brewing. Tamils in Sri Lanka are not in a mood to take up arms at present, and are unlikely to trust any assurances given by India due what happened in the past, when India used Tamils to get it wants and when that was achieved, let them down This time attack will come from outside where Sri Lanka government will have no power to act, and will come with full support of interested parties who matter in this conflict. Will history repeat itself with Tamil invasion to control Sri Lanka.

    Wigneswaran came to this seat at the mercy of TNA and now he has stabbed them on the back. Who is Wigneswaran, he is a thankless LTTE supporter. He is trying hard to revive LTTE. He is also funded by Mahinda Rajapakse through old crock Vasudeva, his child’s father in law. He is a Tamil by day and Sinhalese by night, a true Sri Lankan but claims himself to be an “Ellamist”. I think its time the voters of Jaffna tie him and his friend Vasudeva Nanayakkara on to a bullock cart and send them along Galleface.

      Don’t you get it, its Rajapakse who is operating Wigneswaran through old crock Vasudeva. Its very clear. Remember this is the next step of Rajapakse to get Tamils not to vote at the next elections the same way he bribed Prabaharan.

    Former Supreme Court Judge and CM while drawing the Pension and utilizing the very same Political and administrative system of SL for his own survival advocate it won’t work for minorities. Also on a personal level his family got marriage relationship with a family in majority.

    If his heart really in sync with what he utter to the masses he would have choose to act from outside this system like LTTE and any other militant group in the past. At least they are honest in what they choose as a viable solution even though not everyone agree to it.

    He just fishing in trouble water and survive using the fund receive from diaspora living in euphoria for a fast illusion separate homeland without even know how to administer the land once given.

    As a CM he haven’t been able to attract foreign fund to develop the province neither engage anything meaningful to uphold the lives of people including the former members of the militant organizations.

    His achievement can be listed as spoken against X, Y or Z or casting doubt on A, B or C. I would like to see him publish his newly formed party policies that will help in anyway uplift the livelihood of the very people he represent.

      “Former Supreme Court Judge and CM while drawing the Pension and utilizing the very same Political and administrative system of SL for his own survival advocate it won’t work for minorities. “

      He is not living off from your contribution, as a government employee for many years he would have contributed to his pension fund. He does not rely on his spouse’s income from Middle East.

      Please read the above quote carefully, once you are happy and satisfied that you did really understood, only then respond to my comment.

      “As a CM he haven’t been able to attract foreign fund to develop the province neither engage anything meaningful to uphold the lives of people including the former members of the militant organizations.”

      By the way does chief minister have the power to raise foreign funds and bring them into their province?
