Dr. Dayan Jayatilleka May Be The Next Victim Of Abduction

By Laksiri Fernando –

Abductions, Security Establishment and International Pressure

Prof. Laksiri Fernando

The alleged abduction and the subsequent release of Premakumar Gunaratnam and Dimuthu Attygalle, two key leaders of the breakaway JVP Frontline Socialist Party (FSP) in Sri Lanka, reveal the importance of ‘international pressure’ in safeguarding human rights of people in any country, including the right to life, at least as a ‘necessary evil’ under trying conditions of suppression of dissent and threats of enforced ‘disappearances,’ ‘torture’ and ‘extra-judicial killings.’

It is believed that during the last six months or so, over 50 persons and mainly political activists and journalists have disappeared from the streets of Colombo and Jaffna in Sri Lanka, and two of them were Lalith Kumar Weeraraj and Kugan Muruganathan who belonged to the same political movement as Gunaratnam and Attygalle. The previous two disappeared in Jaffna on the Human Rights Day on 10 December 2011 and their whereabouts are still unknown.
Luckily this time, Premakumar Gunaratnam was a dual citizen of Australia and Sri Lanka and the Australian government brought pressure on the security establishment of the country to release Gunaratnam, along with other missions and UN agencies. As a result, Ms Attygalle also was released relatively unharmed. This matter was handled quite delicately on the Australian side by the Australian High Commissioner to Sri Lanka, Ms Robyn Mudie, who is supposed to have immense experience in human rights matters.
Circumstances 
Apart from direct pressure from the Australian authorities, the recent UN Human Council resolution against Sri Lanka seems to have worked quite effectively on this instance as a ‘deterrent’ to prevent anything dramatically nasty for the two who were undoubtedly abducted by the security forces.
Ms Attygalle however claimed that she was ‘blindfolded,’ ‘gagged’ and ‘threatened’ apart from being kept in a secluded room for two days. She was initially questioned along with Gunaratnam, particularly on their now launched new political movement called the Frontline Socialist Party. The trauma inflicted on Ms Attygalle, a former teacher and a committed feminist, undoubtedly should be condemned by all sectors of society and the international community.
I would particularly urge the Vice Chancellors Committee in Sri Lanka and all academics to do so as a symbol of their avowed commitment to democracy, peace, human rights and justice in the Sri Lanka society. There are some brave academics who have already done so. The VC’s Committee first came to open on public issues when there was a danger of a former Army General taking over the political reins in the country during the last Presidential elections in January 2010.
If that were slightly tainted with political bias, they can now show their political impartiality by standing against the suppression of human rights, rule of law and democracy in the country. Otherwise they may soon lose their credibility among academics and students at large.
Almost as a justification for the supposed abduction, the ‘Ministry of External Affairs’ has now issued a statement intended to “Shed light on Premakuar Gunaratnam and Ms Dimuthu Attygalle” (Asian Tribune, 10 April 2012). Far from being the eloquent language of the Minister or his assistants, the poorly drafted statement shows the depth or the ‘dungeon’ to which the ‘foreign affairs’ in the country has now seeped into through the infiltrated ‘security hands’ by blatantly defending the gross violations of human rights such as ‘abductions and disappearances.’
Except perhaps the Frontline Socialist Party, those who asked for the release of Gunaratnam and/or Attygalle did not condone or subscribe to the politics of the duo or their past or present activities. Raising the issue of abduction was merely a question of human rights, rule of law, due process and democracy.
I was listening to an emotional appeal by Gunaratnam’s wife Dr Chandra Somaratna on ABC TV in Australia and even she being a past activist said that “if my husband has done anything wrong, please deal with the matter within the legal framework. But please don’t kill him.”
Justification 
There are overlapping ‘allegations’ that the ‘Ministry’ has made ‘against’ particularly Gunaratnam but almost nothing against Ms Attygalle, except her political activities. The first allegation is about Gunaratnam changing the name three times! But what is not revealed is his name at birth, which shows by birth he was a Tamil now leading a political party in the South predominantly of the Sinhalese apart from the Muslims.
The security establishment, now turning the government against reconciliation, apparently wants to sabotage any effort of solidarity between different communities at the grassroots or civil society level and the suppression of real identities of people seems to be part and parcel of this effort.
It is a common practice of many migrants in Australia to change their former names into simple names but in the case of Gunaratnam it is quite possible that his change of name both in Australia and in Sri Lanka was prompted by political reasons. Sri Lanka is now reputed to have a ‘secret service’ (SLSS) which can go beyond borders and ‘abduct’ people as they did in the case of Kumar Pathmanadan or KP. Under repressive conditions in many countries, political activists use several aliases. This is also not uncommon in the case of Sri Lanka although it is not admirable in open politics or democracy.
The second allegation refers to his ‘political history,’ quite unimportant to the issue of abduction and the statement reveals that “these are circumstances which have come to light in the course of detailed interrogation by the police” which admittedly shows that he was interrogated during the abduction and thereafter.
The third point while ‘denying the abduction’ argues that the delays in reporting the abductions to the police “throw considerable doubt on the reliability and trustworthiness of the version of the events.” The same is repeated as the fourth point in the case of Ms Attygalle and claims that there was almost one day delay in reporting the abduction to the police!
The fifth point is almost farcical questioning why Gunaratnam was staying alone in that particular night at a party-built secluded house if his party had elaborate arrangements for all these days for his personal security. From the statement it appears that the security was monitoring his whereabouts very carefully during the period and it is possible that the duo was abducted at a vulnerable juncture together or separately. Hence were the alleged ‘unreliable and untrustworthy’ versions.
It was immediately after that, the statement says as the sixth point that “Mr. Gunaratnam’s wife who made several public statements about his alleged abduction, had stated categorically to the Police that she had not lived with her husband since 7th November 2006, and had no knowledge of his whereabouts.”
While disputing the versions of abduction by Gunaratnam and Attygalle as the last point, prior to that there is only one valid accusation leveled against Gunaratnam in point seven which says “It is quite clear that Mr. Gunaratnam was staying in this country illegally for more than 5 months. His visa had expired 5 months ago.” Even this validity of the point seven is questionable if Gunaratnam is a dual citizen and still holds a citizenship in Sri Lanka.
All dual citizens should be able to freely live in Sri Lanka including myself and if one enters the country on the Australian passport that should be clearly mentioned to authorities or informed the immigration later before the issued visa is expired. In this case Gunaratnam has done something ‘unlawful’ but that is not a reason to abduct or torture him.
Conclusion 
If my ‘content analysis’ of the statement supposed to be by the ‘Ministry of External Affairs’ is correct, there are two important conclusions to emerge. First is that the origin of this statement cannot be the Ministry of External Affairs. Sri Lanka apparently is in a very serious situation where the ‘security establishment’ apparently has encroached into other ministries and in this case the Ministry of External Affairs.
Second is that the ‘security establishment’ is now peeping into peoples’ personal matters. Political activists, diplomats, civil servants, journalists and academics should beware of this serious situation. Even some Ministers might come under this category. As Gunaratnam and Attygalle were abducted, they will be abducted or exposed at the most vulnerable situations. The next victim perhaps will be Dr. Dayan Jayatillake.
There can be arguments ‘for and against’ the ‘international pressure’ on the issues of human rights in Sri Lanka and elsewhere. I have always maintained that State sovereignty is ‘limited and relative’ on the issues of human rights or otherwise abhorrent and gross violations could take place in any country in the name of sovereignty.
Those who do not believe in this proposition at least should consider ‘international pressure’ as a ‘necessary evil’ or otherwise even their reputation or rights or even survival may be in jeopardy. The government of Sri Lanka has reached a stage of crossing the border line by resisting ‘reconciliation’ and indulging in gross violations and blatant lies.

    Laksiri,

    Were you also in the “this war was not winnable boat?”

    May be you can try to answer the 20 questions that Dayan J failed to answer so far….

    20 questions to Dr. Dayan Jayatileke on Geneva outcome 2012
    C. Wijeyawickrema
    Politicians, who did not know history or geography of Sri Lanka, did blunders in the past. For example, both SWRD and Dudley S signed agreements with Chelvanayagam who wanted a country in a Tamil homeland giving him land powers. Giving land powers in such context is like erecting ladders to jumping monkeys. These agreements were based on selfish politics and not based on what was reasonable and justifiable. Present day Marxist remnants proudly cite Colvin R. de. Silva’s 1950s formula, “one language two countries, two languages one country,” forgetting what Colvin said and did in the 1960s and 1970s. Colvin, JRJ, CBK, RPremadasa or RanilW or the LLRC did not understand that as long as there is a Tamil Nadu, there will be a separatist Tamil country movement and Sri Lanka must do everything domestically to erase language-based boundaries.
    It is in this context that I doubt Dr. Dayan Jayatileke’s (DJ) sincerity. Does he not understand history and geography of Sri Lanka or is he pretending? Why we cannot be reasonable to all ethnic groups including the majority Sinhala? If DJ read the book by Devanesan Nesiah, “Discrimination with reason,” (1997), he would understand how reasonable discrimination has worked in India, USA and Malaysia. I do not think DJ is Harold Laski reborn in Sri Lanka as his uncle Carlo Fonseka once identified him, but DJ has some talents, just like Rohan Gunaratne who is an expert on terrorism operating from a university in Singapore. They both were in the “this war is not winnable” boat in the past. The “solutions” they suggest now make us think twice because of this past record, more so with DJ who once fled to India with Vartharaja Perumal.
    As a person who wrote enough against the 13A death trap (just like JRJ’s death trap constitution of 1978 and subsequent electoral reforms), I think I am correct in labeling Dayan J as the step-father of the 13A Plus idea, copied later by the American embassy in Colombo, Indians in Delhi, TNA, Anandasangaree and some Sinhala politicians now holding ministerial jobs. In the past, when I sought clarification from DJ about his 13A+ plan he behaved in a funny way which made me suspicious of his sincerity. Does he genuinely believe in his own step son 13A+ as a solution to keep this island in one piece? Marxists ruined Sri Lanka and DJ as a Marxist theoretician of sort, has a heavy burden to justify his miracle solution 13A+ by educating others by answering our questions. After he was removed from his ambassador job last time, there was a lull in his carrying the 13A monkey on his back and he even talked about a Sinhala Buddhist heartland in the island (opposite of Rosy Senanayake’s idea of removing the Buddhist social base in the island). Therefore, I hope a reformed DJ would decide to educate others about his magic solution called the 13A Plus.
    Twenty questions
    1. Does he (DJ) not agree that 13A has no moral basis to be a law because it was forced by India on a frightened JRJ who forced MPs to vote for it by keeping them in a hotel-converted prison?
    2. Does DJ agree with the suggestion to submit 13A to a people’s referendum to confirm or reject it by the people of Sri Lanka?
    3. Does DJ accept the fact that 13A is an acceptance of the myth of traditional Tamil Homeland in Sri Lanka?
    4. Does DJ not accept that on the basis of 3 above Muslims also will have a “right” to ask for a homeland (Oluvil Declaration type) of their own?
    5. Does he not accept the fact that 13A was nothing but the introduction to Sri Lanka of the policy of communal representation implemented in India by the Government of India Act of 1935?
    6. Does he not agree that 13A has created hordes of corrupt new political families who want to use the PC set up to go to parliament?
    7. Does he not think that Sri Lanka is too small to have separate provincial governments?
    8. What is DJ’s definition of 13A+? Is it giving land powers or giving both land and police powers?
    9. Does DJ support the re-merging of Eastern and Northern Provinces?
    10. Does DJ know that Christian fanatic organizations mapped a “belt of Satan” in the world that should be saved?
    11. Can DJ explain how 13A+ will prevent Tamil Nadu and world Tamil forum’s aspiration to have a Tamil country?
    12. Does DJ accept that Tamils in Sri Lanka have more rights than Tamils in India?
    13. Can DJ list grievances unique to Tamils in Sri Lanka?
    14. Would DJ agree that in Sri Lanka the problem is “spatial inequality” not racial inequity?
    15. LLRC wanted to empower people at the lowest level. What mechanism DJ can suggest to implement this?
    16. R. Premadasa increased GSN units from 4,000 to 14,000 to give jobs to his UNP supporters. Does DI think we need that many grama sevaka units?
    17. New Zealand and USA are examples of countries using natural boundaries as administrative unit demarcations. Does DJ agree to demarcate GSN boundaries on natural/ecological basis?
    18. Units under 17 above will create seven large River basins in Sri Lanka. Does DJ think such seven river basins are better than the artificially carved nine provinces?
    19. Does DJ think western white imperial politicians want one Sri Lanka or two countries in the island?
    20. Would DJ read the book, Breaking India: Western interventions in Dravidian and Dalit faultlines?

    Many sri lankans have dual citizenship – now the facility is suspended – because, the foreign citizenship/passport makes international travel easier than sri lankan citizenship.
    As stated, many immigrants to australia have – ‘simplified’ – changed their names to make it easily pronouncable. This is not illegal in that country.The photo in any passport is the most important aid in identification.
    On arrival, Gunaratnam has surrendered his australian passport to the australian embassy when he went there to report his arrival,probably as requested by the embassy.This has happened to others.
    As he was having the sri lankan pssport his “overstaying the visa period” does not arise.
    According to BBC, the abducters had repeatedly told him and Dimuthu, that “Gotabaya has nothing to do with the abduction”.
    This “clarification” of an illegal act is suspicious.
    When Dimuthu had queried as to how they had guns without state patronage, they had been silent.
    Both had been interrogated on their new political party.
    The SLGovernment is upset that the ongoing series of abductions have been confirmed/highlighted by this episode.

    This article is written by none other than a pro-Rajapakshe intellect who has contributed towards establishing the current political regime, not only by openly expressing one’s support for Rajapakshes in elections but also by providing various ideological justifications for its activities in the media throughout last few years. Interestingly enough, now he clearly implies the fact that the country’s security establishment was completely responsible for the abduction and release of comrade Kumar and comrade Dimuthu. It can clearly be noticed in the following quotation,

    “Luckily this time, Premakumar Gunaratnam was a dual citizen of Australia and Sri Lanka and the Australian government brought pressure on the security establishment of the country to release Gunaratnam, along with other missions and UN agencies. As a result, Ms Attygalle also was released relatively unharmed.”

    The evidence is so strong because Prof. Laksiri Fernando who was known as a strong supporter of the current regime does say very clearly that the security establishment of the country released Mr. Kumar Gunaratnam and Ms. Dimuthu Artygalla only after International pressure.

    There is no need to say, the ‘security establishment of the country’ includes the President Rajapakshe as the Difence Minister and his own brother as the Secretary of Difence. While the Government is yet to admit its role in abducting and torturing its own citizens, a pro-Government intellect has made the case very clearly. All the local and International Human Rights groups should take this article as one of the best proof for organized form of Human Rights violations in current Sri Lanka, which is championed by the Rajapakshe regime.

    The problem of the author, any way, is that he seems not to be ready to review the way how his own past analyses have gone wrong. If what he is currently claiming is true, his own past political analyses that made him to support the an authoritarian regime should have gone wrong.

    Laksiri,
    You don’t know why your Mahathaya was staying alone when he was under threat as you allege?Stupid,it was a stage managed abduction.You know that’s the truth.But you don’t want to accept it for the simple reason that”abduction”means more $$$$.Even i don’t sleep alone for the simple reason being that these fellows who badmouth me at CT might come in the form of ghosts and squeeze my sweet neck.Forget Mahasona,Reeri Yaka and Mohini.These CT ghosts give me the jitters.

      MAX in ‘stupidity’rating, mate?

      Look at Gota’s face and the voice (he has a distinct voice when he makes things up as he goes) in the ITN program, when he explained the story. When the Australian High Commission asked for details of the missing person they did not give the assumed name! That’s why the Sri Lankan government could not trace him! Really?? Sounds like a third class movie!!

      If Premkumar was guilty as charged, why didn’t the government take him to Court? Gota is a chicken, not a lion as he lies to claim. When Robyn Mudie sttod up, and threatned (well – suggested) that Australia may have to stand up with Canada and work towards moving the Commonwealth Summit away from Sri Lanka, Kurakkan Samaga folded.

      Everybody knows whathappened. The joke is, MAX does not seems realise what is going on, and hopes that the rest of the readers are similar to him, the the desciples of Mahadana Muttha.

    Guys, guys, as you may well understand I have better things to do than reply to Wijayawickrema’s moronic 20 questions. Here’s an ‘omnibus’ reply, though: as regards 13 Plus, my consistent position has been that while 13A Plus may well be the final Constitutional settlement someday, it should NOT be entertained in this postwar period and for many years to come; perhaps even a generation to come. I have criticised the TNA on this score. Instead all I have argued for is the implementation of the 13th amendment as exists as part of our basic law, the Constitution, with mutually agreed upon adjustments (‘swaps’) where necessary; albeit with the de-merger remaining unchanged and unchallenged. As for the argument that 13A was an external imposition, well, even universal suffrage (the vote) was introduced by British colonialism, and all the Ceylonese representatives, inclduing SWRD testified in opposition to it at the Donomoughmore Commission. Only AE Goonesinghe supported it! So, are we therefore opposed to the vote?

    As for a referendum, that is something for the Supreme Court to decide — not some Sinhala chauvinist fanatic– and the Supreme Court did not decide that a referendum is necessary. If anyone wishes to recanvas the case he/she may petitio the Court. 13A has stood for almost 25 years, with people voting at PC elections (including when threatened with murder by the JVP in ’88) except in the North, where the Tigers stopped them.

      What a comical answer by Dayan!! Universal suffrage and 13A are two different introductions and only people iwth brains should debate it. 13A was forced unto us under mysterious circumstances, in a threatening environment, whereas for universal suffrage, well the man himself says there was a Donomoughmore Commission. Need I say more!!As for a referendum let the parliament and the supreme court decide that, not a chauvinistic fanatic-Mr-know-it-all politician from a military group turned ambassador, who is dancing like a headless chicken when he wasn’t included in the Geneva panel.
      13A has stood for 25 years because nobody has noticed it. What an arguement!! Just for your information Dayan, when there is an election, our voters do vote. It is upto the law-makers to educate the masses but nobody is bothered. If the PCs are abolished, there will be some celebrations but hardly anybody will notice. In other words, whether 13A exists or not, nobody could give a toss, but if properly implemented, there will be chaos and if abolished, there will be celebrations.

      Dayan, you state above that your consistant position is 13plus as the Constitutional settlement someday. Not immediately, in this postwar period. What a stupid proposal to make in your position as a Diplomat. This time buying exercise is a ruse that the crafty had resorted to in the past. It is like for a man starving, asking him to wait that some day in the future he will get food. Obviously he will not be there at that time as he will die of hunger. What solutions as for your intelligence! Why are you not bold enough to propose, to be implemented immediately without playing for time.

    Where are Kugan and Lalith, the activists of Movement for People Struggle?

    A website reveals that these two, who were abducted last December 9th, are being held at the Police Welfare building under an IP’s supervision. Lalith and Kugan are being continuously questioned while being held in one room on the 6th floor.

    We should note also that Mr. Keheliya Rambukwela admitted that they were still alive. But, the Government said they are not in their custody.

    As Abraham Lincoln said, “You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you can not fool all of the people all of the time.”

    When the D-day comes and people are held to account, MAX Silvas of the world would quietly tucktheir tails between their legs, duck and move away.

    Devolution under the 13th Amendment is NOT the answer for the ethnic problem in this country. As devolution will further devide the two communities. The lasting solution is the creation of a Secular Society, where everyone will be considered equal, enjoying equality. The present practise where the govt. panders to the Buddhists should be stopped and allow the individuals to practise their faiths with out govt. sponsorship. This has been the root cause of all the problems in this country. Then there will be a greater possibility for intermarriage and the communities to live side by side respecting each other living peacefully and the most suitable to become the head of state, irrespective of what community one belongs to or what his faith is. The governing will be selected on their ability, honesty and adhering to Principles. Further this free and easy passage presently enjoyed by some in society to live on the sweat of others harping on Language and Religion will stop.

    Dear citizens. There are many to comment on this page. However we have to remember whether we like it or not, today people can move freely in Sri Lanka because of the firm decision that was taken by the Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa. There were many brains behind it. But President had to shoulder the responsibility to make the changes. The make it last the peace that is created, we need some fundamental changes. It is not the LLRC or 13th amendments that are required. First we have to understand what is applicable to one country not necessary to be applicable to all other countries. What is suitable for Sri Lanka must be decided by the Sri Lankans and not by foreigners. Sri Lanka can evaluate what various countries follow to retain peace and understand different concepts. At the end, the final product must come through from Sri Lankans.

    All citizens must be free to live any part of the country. No racial group should be allowed to isolate and live among themselves. In every district, the racial proportion should be in par with the racial proportion of the country. In leading organisations the white collar workers proportion should be in par with the racial proportion of the country. Racial proportion should not be considered in University entrance selections. Once these fundamental changes are implemented we can realise we do not need the LLRC or 13th amendments any more.
