    When will the last stage of the war come to Colombo?

    People are waiting.

      That will be pretty soon I suppose. An early manifestation, within the Western Province, was the sad violence in Waliveriya some time back. Similar violence, repression and mass murder could certainly occur in Colombo as long as a madman heads the defence apparatus.

    How come the evergreen hero K A Sumansekera’s (LEELA) name is not in the panel? now omitting him could be the work of the Diasporians and I think we should form a committee to inquire into this!

    I see the three stooges are there: Dayan, Tamara and Rajiva !

    Dayan and Tamara former Geneva diplomats but both POLITICAL appointments not career diplomats.

    This should be interesting to attend.

      All of them are war crime deniers.

      Dayan is in the special category, he is a self confessed war monger.

        I did not go but from those who went (GV twitter feed) makes interesting read, some like the following (all from Groundviews twitter feed)

        1) Rajiva Wijesinha says neither of @PresRajapaksa’s brothers have his intellect or instinct. #lka #srilanka

        2) At Marga colloquium on truth and accountability. Listening to Booker Prize worthy submissions. #lka #srilanka

        3) Dr. K Vigneswaran says hospitals were shelled to scare civilians away (during the last stages of the war). You can’t make this s*** up! #lka

        I can’t help but laugh at MARGA and its antics !

    MARGA had already decided on Accountability.

    Read the report they prepared earlier:

    Truth and Accountability : The Last Stages of the War in Sri Lanka

    An Analysis and evaluation of the Report of the UN Secretary General’s (UNSG) Panel of Experts on Accountability in Sri Lanka

    (Working Paper prepared by Godfrey Gunatilleke for the Seminar on “ Accountability, Restorative

    Justice and Reconciliation: A review of the Report of the UNSG’s Panel of Experts on Accountability in Sri Lanka 21.07.2011)

    Did anyone see Pandit David Blacker anywhere near the buiding?

      Native Vedda,
      David Blacker served as “defence analyst” at the seminar on the Darusman Report hosted by Marga Institute long ago.
      Details in the web.

    The Third Reich conducted the holocaust. There were those who did then and do now deny the event occurred. The comparison with the Marga institute is hard to avoid. Dogfrey Goonetilleke has provided ample evidence of his credentials to lead this bunch.
    Incidentally, is David Blackleg an officer of Marga?
