    This man is a [Edited out] and a man who has no love for his people. He like a Jew who sells Holucaust as a business, is with Gnanakoon selling the Tamil story for their own profit.

      GGP -You are nothing but a diabolical and pathetic liar. I have never profited fighting for the Tamil rights and exposing Singhala State Terrorism. I agree with what PS has said in his speech. It was wonderful to hear him stand up and be counted.

      As for his finances, I cannot speak. But I do not grudge his financial success working as a NGO. More power to him. He is not robbing the money of the poor people in and from Sri Lanka, like, we all know the FAMILY.

      I do not get it! Why do you civil society NGOs who spent lots of money on trips to Geneva not translate to Sinhala and Tamil yourselves?!
      Please be proactive and spend some of those donor dollars on a worthwhile project rather than waiting for MR and his goons and cronies to do so!

        CPA has translated the last chapter of the LLRC report into Sinhala. The Tamil version of this chapter is in the process of being translated.

          It is not just translating the LLRC report into Sinhala and Tamil. NGOs should stop circulating their opinions among themselves during meetings and gatherings in the cities under fancy names and be based in the villages and provinces and show an example to others by their own lives. Why not have centres of the CPA in villages and be ready to go to jail on principled positions? I will also join as I am sure others will too.

          This is the only way to change society and change the bad name of NGOs which has come about not only through or as a reason of attacks by the government. The gvernment is delighted with NGOs as they see them now.

          Why not try to oppose the government in an actually effective way?

          Well Dr P that’s a good start, please go the whole hog, translate the whole LLRC report SOON and then hold a big TRILINGUAL meeting with all the media on the key points, since educating the public is the key and the business of NGOs! AND Invite Sarath Fonseka to be really inclusive and get the attention of the masses!

        Why don’t ask your government which spends millions of Swiss Francs for Government propagandists Transports, Hotel accomoation, Honey money for some individual, entertainment, allowances, evening visit Rouge area, etc.

        Why you expect NGOs to spend money on government affairs!

      O God, this terrible english again, with unneccasry capitalizing of words, some statements making no sense at all. Verbal diarrhea at its best, or worse, wobbling words in a drunken stupor. I recognize this style of writing from previous opinions expressed in similar fashion. I do not wish to discourage the expression of opinion, but rather, have someone knowledgable to whet it. before publishing. English is a beautiful language which can effectively send a strong message, or a short and curt message, but to the point. Should be easy on the eye, mind and most of all be related to the matter under scrutiny.

      This man Ponnaiah Velayuden, although he profess to be a Tamil is a chauvinist Sinhalese paraya, posibly from Portuguese descent. I doubt whether he knows his proper father because his mother must have been in the habit of practicing what he alleges others, judging from his own mother’s standards. What scum we have in our society.

    Chandra Goonewardene, the attention paid to me by the regime most recently over the Geneva resolution and previously over the GSP PLus issue, suggests that at least as far as they are concerned, they do not think CPA or I to be ineffective.

    As for being ready to join to go to jail having taken up principled positions – you clearly have concluded that CPA and I do not take up principled positions. Therefore why wait on us or anyone else. Take up a principled position and the rest will surely follow, if that is your yearning /calling!

    And by the way, the translation of the last chapter of the LLRC is not an act of indulgence and whilst we do not have offices around the country, we do work and closely with a number of organizations around the country.

      Dear Dr Saravanamuttu – please do not take the ‘attention’ paid to yo and your organisation by this government as anything worth remarking on or as a compliment to your ‘work’. This government is a bunch of motley fools, aggravating all and everything. They will pay attention to each and every megaphone critic.

      Instead, try reaching out to the ordinary moderate Sri Lankans who dislike five star conferences, posturing in the name of human rights and jet setting lifestyles, shirt unbuttoned or buttoned as the case may be.

      This is what NGOs ought to do. Working for a few years in the agriculture sector in India, I saw that this is what Indian NGOs in fact do. It is only in this way that you can correct the negative image that ordinary decent people have of NGOs in general and ‘five star’Colombo 7 based NGOs in particular.

      As a retired public servant, I do the best for my community in my own way and by community, I mean both Sinhala and Tamil people. However, I do not recieve thousands of dollars from overseas for which I must justify my work. You do, Sir! Therefore it is a poor excuse for you to say that you are just translating documents or that your organisation ‘works’ with other collectives in the areas outside Colombo.

      These criticisms are not meant as an attack but as constructive advice, much in the same way as NGOs deal out the same advice to governments!

    Let people contribute in a constructive manner.Please do not say things that heart their inner feelings. In sri lanka there is no freedom of speach, that you can find in west. Do not waste your time talking about LTTE, according to SL it was finished in 2009. Talk about reconsiliation and how you are going to impliment the LLRc recommandations. Another commission to study the recommendations? Do not hoodwink this can not go on like this. face the reality and do thing that is good for the Nation, otherwise their will be no peace.Why you celebrate the victory, on whoose dead body on Tamils, how you are going to bring them together if you continue to do things like this

      Hey Maxi

      Do not blame Paki for no reason. He has been doing a terrific and remarkable service to SL community with his big LIPS. He is no different to our JVP pandits. They all do this lips services many many decades.

      I think at least Bomba Gunda is better than Paki and the JVP goons.

    I suppose Mr P Saravanamuttu has had a hard time living in the skin of an ethnic cosmopolitan Tamil in the larger society of Colombo, when the Eelam war was concluded in favour of the government forces. I cannot blame him being in a state of mind where in the deepest recesses of his heart, a cherished ideal withered in the euphora of relief from tension and uncertainty for the vast majority of people both in the south and north of Sri Lanka. However, as a seasoned political activist, he would have quickly re-calibrated his stance and espoused a contemporary theme that would be compatible with his present environment. Sri Lanka needs a variety of different perspectives and view points which are openly aired, debated and acted on, in the best interests of the nation and its people, rather than follow a narrow and blinkered path, rejecting anything but the ideals and goals of a preponderant few.
