Controversial: The Queen Upset Human Rights Protesters By Greeting Sri Lanka’s President – Daily Mail

By Colombo Telegraph –

“The monarch and her luncheon guests arrived to angry scenes as hundreds of Tamil and human rights campaigners gathered outside Marlborough House in central London in opposition to Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapakse’s presence at the meal.” Daily Mail reports.

Controversial: The Queen Upset Human Rights Protesters By Greeting Sri Lanka’s President Mahinda Rajapaksa, left, and his wife Shiranthi Rajapaksa During A Reception Prior To The Diamond Jubilee Commonwealth Lunch 

 

Their chants echoed around the forecourt as guests arrived. Mr Rajapakse was jeered as he swept through the main gate in a Range Rover. His car did not carry a flag because of security concerns.

The Queen seemed relaxed as she was handed a bouquet by nine-year-old Aduke Badale, the daughter of a member of the Commonwealth Secretariat staff.

The Queen spent a brief moment with Mr Rajapakse and appeared to fleetingly shake hands with him as she met guests at a reception in the Blenheim Saloon inside Marlborough House.

Heads of state and representatives from Australia, Canada and the African nations were welcomed by Commonwealth Secretary-General Kamalesh Sharma.

        Mrs MR (Shranthi Rajapakshe) seems very happy regardless of what’s happening out side against SL president. She is happy because(may be) she gets free tour around the world and able to meet world leaders and VVIPs…

        Sinhala proud? He can show his proud only to Sinhalese and they (sinhalese and goons) only can see his proud and understand it. For others, always like in this picture…

    Rajapaksa Government seems to be created embarrassment everywhere !!

    I a recent BBC interview with the Secretary of Defence, Gotabhaya Rajapaksa is another pile of embarrassment left by this ….. threatening, arrogant sibling of the Sri Lanka ruling royal family

    I actually don’t believe my eyes when read the BBC journalist Charles Haviland interview with him!!

    https://www.colombotelegraph.com/index.php/bbc-news-gotatake-my-word-im-the-secretary-defence/

    ————————–
    From the interview with the Secretary of Defence, Gotabhaya Rajapaksa, broadcast on the BBC.

    Charles Haviland:

    The allegations are also of mass civilian deaths and people wonder whether there will be accountability ?

    Gotabhaya Rajapaksa:

    No – If there’s a violation, if can prove, then we can punish, that is no problem. But you have to prove that. You know – we have defeated such a terrorist group. The worst terrorist group in the world. Now you don’t talk about that! We have stopped killing in this country. You don’t talk about that. You are supporting the terrorist! You are supporting the terrorist cause!

    Charles Haviland:

    I assure you I am not, Secretary.

    ——————————–

    So by asking Rajapaksa Government about the accountability of numerous civilian death in the war… one immediately is branded an LTTE, a terrorist, or a terrorist supporter??

    Is BBC journalist Charles Haviland a terrorist supporter ???

    No… I don’t think so!!

      Secretary of Defence, Gotabhaya Rajapaksa displays such inappropriate arrogance because his defence secretary’s post is a nepotistic appointment.

      Usually a senior professionally civil servant is given this post to represent our country due his superior skills and superb intelligence.

      GR has neither !!

    An embarassment to the state of SRILANKA when the Met Police ordered his driver to remove the STATE FLAG before entering the MARLBOROUGH HOUSE for lunch for security reasons. He did’nt want to miss his precious chance of eating the lunch with the queen HE the PRESIDENT PUT THE OCCASION BEFORE THE COUNTRY. THE SOVEREIGN SYMBOL OF THE COUNTRY CAME SECOND TO OUR LEADER. The srilanka VEHICLE CARRYING THE president and the wife minus the state flag. These disgraceful seens are shameful when it concerns a leader of a sovereign state.

      Sri Lanka Super Patriot Rajapaksa is afraid to display the Sri Lanka National Flag !!!

      What a coward !! The Rajapaksa Brutal Regime is only “brave” with the Tamils with their hands in chains and surrounded by 300 000 military men armed to the teeth !!

    lot of LTTE Flags , i think it is a good news for Sri Lanka. I presume they are LTTE supporters, they seems to have finally realized that arms struggle not going to take them home, now they are resorting to more humane and democratic type of protest.MY congratulations to LTTE and Mahinda Rajapakse for this new democratic outlook

      You forgot one thing, Tamils staged protest in human and democratic way and turned into arm struggle because their democratic way didn’t help for decade and made the situation worse. Then only LTTE came into picture (National issue of Tamils). All Tamils supported (Except few Tamil politicians who had long term plan to become a leader for Tamils. eg. Sangaree, Douglas ) them because Tamils felt LTTE was the only one can save Tamils. After the defeat of LTTE in arm struggle, considering the international situations; Tamils decided to protest in democratic way. This can’t be stopped by any world power. Though international community (more than 10 countries) supported SL in war can’t support to SL now when Tamils protest in democratic manner. this is not a good news to SL, but good news to MR and goons, so they can increase the popularity within Sinhalese and gain the power again and again to save their seats. You fools will vote again because you believe what politicians are telling “LTTE is coming.. coming.. USA is trying to divide the country.. etc etc”. Bad for sri lanka good for present corrupted politicians. FYI, diaspora is protesting because they have freedom to protest. but in SL, not only tamils, even you majority can come to road and protest, because next day you all know what will happen. So don’t be fool by labeling diaspora as LTTE supporters.

        Yes ,tamils belived that LTTE could save them , but ultimateley tamils got destroyed becuase of LTTE actions. I dont think you can achieve anything substantial with international demonstrations and war crime charges. damage has already been done. These protests will only help Mahinda and LTTE idology but not the tamils.

        only way i can see for tamils to regain their strength is in the economic front, remember all these people are suject to economic pressure . most of the people can be bought over for money.EVEN USA,UK will drop war crime chrges if it is beneficial for them economically . If Tamils dont understand this ,they are heading for another disaster

    What’s the point in this article or any of our comments even when the Ruling Family (Government of SL) is comfortably convinced that the masses are on their side! Afterall Siripala, Gunawanse & Leelawathie believe every decieving word and promise and will happily fight ‘the rest of the world’ on their behalf without a second thought for sense!

    You can make sure you are treated as a hero, and make stupid excuses, for your crimes at home, but when you leave the country, the real world awaits. Even war criminals like Bush and Cheney have had to cancel many of their trips abroad for security reasons, it is time Rajapaksa realized that he too will be considered a war criminal unless he stops blocking any investigation into war crimes committed in the North.
    Rajapaksa’s eagerness to break bread with world leaders makes him shortsighted, and this is the consequence of that.

    MR looks looks the part of a retarded village tyrant,this is the man who committed genocide
    against the tamils, using chemical weapons such phosperous Bombs supplied by the Jews and routed via India , crying shame about the muted welcome by some warped FCO Mandarins.

    The correct figure of the massacared tamil civilians exceed over 120,000 far more than the hitherto projected figure of 40,000, West still living in denial, perhaps out of guilty conscience, ‘cos they aided and abetted the mR’s military strategy.

    The question, who is shielding him and why, looks to me as if it is India, otherwise he would have been hauled before the Hague as a war criminal longtime ago.Since India is complicit in the genocide commited against the Tamils.

      Mary, thanks for the link. Gordon Duff Senior Editor Daily Telegraph, released an article how the Zionists are ruling the whole world, when Rupert Murdoch was arrested. They are responsible in staging elections in almost all countries to elect the corrupt mediocre. Sri Lanka is no exception. Even the so called defeat of the LTTE was arranged with a staged war for MR to be the War Victor to polarise the Sinhalese vote, in order to allow MR a free rein. Through MR the Zionists expect to achieve their ends. So is it any wonder when MR is invited to the Commonwealth Diamond Jubilee by the Queen as all these leaders are in the payoff, of the Zionists, no matter how much anyone shouts of War Crimes. What money, blackmailing, murder, coercing and bribing can do? The Queen nor the Pope are free from the clutches of the Zionists. That is why our friend had an audiance from both.
