Extension Of UNHRC Resolution Necessary To Correct Violations Of Past: NPC

The National Peace Council in a statement stated that the extension of the UNHRC resolution by a further time period was necessary for good governance in the future which will necessarily include correcting the violations of the past.

The NPC statement said, “We note that countries such as the UK have stated that they are committed to supporting the Sri Lankan government’s efforts to improve the human rights situation in the country and support Sri Lanka’s commitments to the UNHRC through Resolutions 30/1 and 34/1, as the best way to establish truth, and to achieve justice, restitution and reconciliation.”

The full statement issued by the NPC is as follows,

“In March this year Sri Lanka will report back to the UN Human Rights Council on its implementation of Resolution 30/1 which it co-sponsored in October 2015. This report back will be important as it will determine whether or not international scrutiny of the country on human rights issues will continue or come to an end.

During the past three and a half years the government has implemented several of the commitments it made in terms of the resolution it co-sponsored. These include establishing an office of missing persons, legalizing the international conventions against torture and enforced disappearances and returning military occupied land to the civilian population.

By co-sponsoring this UNHRC resolution the government gave the international community the opportunity to formally scrutinize the government’s implementation of its commitments. Some of these commitments, such as to set up a judicial mechanism with the participation of international judges and investigators to ensure accountability in war crimes cases have been especially controversial.

In March 2017 at the request of the Sri Lankan government the UNHRC adopted Resolution 34/1 that extended for a further two years the monitoring mandate of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, with a request for a comprehensive report in March 2019. Some of the commitments made in October 2015 are difficult ones for any government, but they are necessary if there is to be justice in terms of dealing with the past and in creating a better future for all in the country.

Unfortunately, the constitutional crisis of October 2018 and the subsequent political configuration is likely to lead to a resurgence of earlier legacies of our difficult and contested past. The government will require more time to chart its course to deliver on its commitment of March 2017. With crucial elections around the corner the government would want to show the electorate that its strategy of co-sponsoring the resolution has not been damaging to the country’s national interests or sovereignty.

We note that countries such as the UK have stated that they are committed to supporting the Sri Lankan government’s efforts to improve the human rights situation in the country and support Sri Lanka’s commitments to the UNHRC through Resolutions 30/1 and 34/1, as the best way to establish truth, and to achieve justice, restitution and reconciliation.

The National Peace Council believes that the extension of the resolution by a further time period is necessary for good governance in the future which will necessarily include correcting the violations of the past.”

      Please watch this youtube clip from which I learned a lot;
      January is Tamil Heritage Month in Canada, Tamil Identity Today.
      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sjY-C7NRLhU

      It is interesting to know even Tamils living in Canada too cannot agree on their common identity. Each person believes in his/her own identity as he/she perceives with his or her diverse experience. It is a healthy approach adapting to different environment.

        It is called freedom of expression. Identity is important but everyone’s view may slightly different based on many factors.

        Sri Lanka narrow minded, racist leaders ruined the nation that is bleeding for long and time has come to put an end to Sinhala Buddhist madness;

    Why does not NPC ask its friendly funder, Trumpland, which took Lanka to UNHRC, to try its US citizen Gota Jarapassa for War crimes at this time to bring some justice to Tamil minority victims?!
    This would be a far quicker and easier solution for accountability and NON-RECURRENCE and would bring much relief to Tamil and Muslim minorities communities as it is highly symbolic to hold accountable the top war criminal. So, Dr. Jehan pl, ask your US embassy friends who fund National Peace Council members overseas trips and “research” on how to weaponize religion in Lanka to take in their LA citizen, Gota, at least for questioning, especially as CIA has a big file on him?!!
    Also, only solution for long suffering Lankans, who are fed up of the UNP-SLFP-PP, Bondscam Ranil-Sira-Mahinda Kleptocray is: at the next Presidential elections later this year for the JVP’s Anura Kumara Dissanayake to contest and win!
    Trumpland is weaponizing religion in Sri Lanka, to distract everyone from its backing for US puppet Bondscam Ranil and Washington Consensus’ responsibility for Lanka’s debt trap and plan to asset strip Lanka with its proxy Japan which is onto Pulmodai mineral sands and to distract everyone from the violation of national and CIVILIAN security of Sri Lankans, by US Navy and military planes operating in a civilian airport for the paltry sum of 25 million LKR. Sri Lanka will soon be like Venezuvela where US is playing Cold war games soon, never mind Greece!

    National Peace Council (NPC) has consistently pointed out that band-aid fixes will lead to more and more of it.
    Our leaders think that a Naseby-knight will fight the UNHRC demon. This quixotic thinking must end.
    This ‘fight’ has made us sleepwalk very very close to the edge of Failed-State-Cliff.

    How many of our MPs ever read the NPC presentation here or like opinions?

    NPC is talking on behalf their Funding agency. Mangala Samraweera got a $ 1.5 billion Loan, that is as soon as after the $ 1.5 billion former Loan installment was paid, from MCC and that required enhancing Human rights in Sri lanka. This time whether Sri lanka bombs wedding parties in Tamil homeland is looked after by British UNHCR representatives. Very soon, there will be destruction against Trade Unions only those who talk against the govt, consolidation of all the assets and local land owners can not talk against the lease agreements or taxes charged from foreign land owners. UNP expect another Yahapalanaya govt from MS. If not MS will get trouble. General and Provincial council elelctions will be placed to support that. Govt will be in a real dilemma.

    Have a Friendly chat with Mangala Samraweera. He would say they ask so many things but I do not do that much. IF you can talk to the UNHCR following Neo liberal camp whether you have achieved all you want in Sri lanka. They would say Mangala Samraweera has done far more than what we expected. Austerity measures is a very good way to suck out all the life blood and sell everythg they have. Greece had only the torusts and monmey sent by their overseas living relatives. Now, they are done.. It is the same routing the other will follow in srilanka.

    Jehan PhD has been writing on many sides, with many different logics in order to safeguard Appe Aanduwa, inflicting injustice to victims. A good number of his essays have been insisting that Tamils are given all possible rights under UNHRC resolution 30/1. Jehan PhD is a person opposed UNHRC extending the time with Resolution 34/1. Now he is asking for additional time. He went to UNHRC and supported Tilak to withdraw from UNHRC. Jehan PhD feels that asking for additional time would buy enough to escape from this (March 2019) sitting as this is already marred by Appe Aanduwa’s Coup. So he feels this is not a sitting for Sinhala Buddhists and he wants to skip this with requesting additional time.

    Mangala signed resolution 30/1, but he was fired from FAM by Ranil blaming signing without Ranil authorizing. Even recently New King made a speech that Resolution 30/1 was not approved by EP or PM. While no government official is accepting any violations took place in the past, on whose behalf Jehan PhD is asking for the extension? If Jehan PhD is honest in asking for the extension to fulfil governmental obligation on transitional justice, he must first advice the government to accept the violations taking/took place and then ask for extension. Jehan PhD, instead of taking Bald heads to Jaffna to convert Tamils to Buddhism in the name of religious reconciliation, he should explain to the mass that why there is term limit has been imposed on Lankawe. Tine limit came in because 2009 Old King gave promise to UNSG and then immediately after he claimed the war was humanitarian rescue mission, so there were zero casualties. Appe Aanduwa has not implemented anything requested in 2012, 2013 and 2014 UNHRC sittings. Until today, officially no government personnel have accepted that any violation took place, even though army is listed as a gang uses rape as weapon. Resolution 34/1 signed by UN permanent mission staff of Lankawe.

    In Feb 2017, New King was waiting for an invitation from President Trump to talk about repeal the Resolution 30/1. In Galle, in a special meeting to Rapist Army, he made this proposal in November, 2016. In July 2016, he explained to Secretary Kerry that he was trying to implement Resolution 30/1, but Joint Comedy Club (that time it was known as a Part of SLFP) was blocking it. In 2017 March, Ranil refused to corporate with UNHRC. He Invited PM Modi in May to keep India & America get distracted. Then he negotiated the Hangbangtota sale with China and signed in November. In December he kicked on the back his most friendly ambassador, Atul Keshap, for having proposed the Resolution 34/1. America withdrew from UNHRC and cut the GSP+ for Lankawe and its clique, describing them as Cesspool Countries. But still Appe Aanduwa got 2 years extension with 34/1. Same year Lord Naseby wanted to offer help to Lankawe get off it. New King sent a Thank you letter for lord Naseby through the Embassy. Jehan PhD wrote on CT that the government should use it to its advantage.
    Last July when New King was going to UNGA he promised in Lankawe to have the UNHRC’s Resolution 30/1 over ruled by UN. But he made different speech at UNGA than the one published in Colombo Media. To a Sinhala Buddhist Audience, in New York, New King said that it was he who completed the war thus he was taking the responsibility for the War Crime. Without understanding the meaning of that claim, Ponny and Old Brother Prince challenged that claim, though Old King did not deny that claim. Can somebody explain, if any one of the previous activities is suggesting that in future Appe Aanduwa want to honor any of this promises to anybody?

    Then the Coup followed. It was said the Coup was to facilitate overthrow the local cases on Old Royal Family. But, it was feared, the coup was carried out with full knowledge of Ranil. Media described it as the IC was aware of the Coup as early as mid of September. So it might have had Ranil’s assent to it. The reason for this was in two prongs. 1).Locally the unlimited impunity Ranil had given to Old Royals had backfired and he badly lost the LG election. To rebuild UNP to stand in election, he has to limit impunity and bring back Law and Order. 2).Internationally, Lankawe was losing its political image and Trading and Economic efficiency by protecting Old Royals from war crimes. The best way, he perceived to protect UNP was allowing a regime change by coup. This might have confirmed him the EP in 2020. He would not have been blamed for any legal wrangling Old Royals may end up with (in other word, the UN electric Chair).
    The resolution 30/1 is based on UN Transitional Justice principles. It is described as four pillars process.
    1). Office of Missing Persons, 2). Reparation, 3).Special Court with Foreign and Commonwealth justices and lawyers. 4) Constitutional solution. (Though we have summarized in unconventional words, detailed reports are available in Google search. )
    These are, to defeat those taking place, Yahapalanaya sabotaged or failed to implement purposefully these matters on transitional justice process:
    1.). Defeated Lal Wijenayake, Chairman of the Public Representations Committee on Constitutional Reform report.
    2). Refused to accept and act on Manouri Muttetuwegama’s report on reconciliation.
    3). Partially released Land from Rapist Army.
    4). Partially released Political or illegally arrested personnel
    5). Refused to Allow NPC to function properly policing under 13A.
    6).Didn’t withdraws 150,000 Rapist Soldiers strong army from North.
    7). Not willing to Shut down or hand over to affected Tamils the Rapist Army operated enterprises(Businesses, Tourism, faming….)

    On some matters the Srisena-Ranil govt has inched towards some concession towards some aspect of the unhrc resolution. Those issues are important but compared to the core of the resolution, they are periphery issues. Can NPC or the OMP initiate the prosecution of those responsible for murdering the 12 year old Balachandran?

    On the war crimes and crimes against humanity by the armed forces during the last phase of the war, both Srisena and RW have stated more than once that they will not only accept international Jurists participation but will NOT prosecute their war heroes. What does postponement help in bringing those responsible to trial.

    Why have not the present government either released the Tamil Political Prisoners, especially those that they took into custody when they surrendered to the SL Armed Forces, or file charges against them? Is it because the the war crimes committed by the rogue elements of the armed forces and those who gave them the orders will have to be also prosecuted?

    Does postponement help to bring the present coalition to bring to power? Will that help the two leaders to change their mind about prosecuting the war criminals? Wake up NPC.

    NPC is acting like an arm of the government propaganda machinery. Those who fund NPC as a civic organization need to take a second look at its advocacy since the Srisena-RW coalition came into power, especially the last two years.

    If there is a will, always there is a way.
    No Sinhalese dominated government, composed always with different political entities, will ever implement any UNHRC resolution, simply because it will lose any election, and because the armed forces – the “heros” – are all powerful, more than the politicians, and will never tolerate being found fault with.
    The NPC is living in a ‘dreamland’, (knowing that any further extension of implementation of UNHRC resolutions are a farce), to prop up the now extreme-Buddhist-Sinhala political juggernaut – which will be further empowered with the release of Gnanasara.

    Even what the government could have done without resolutions has not been done. It appears that NPC is trying to appease the government for some personal reasons. Returning of the army occupied lands were due to the continued agitation of the Parents and and siblings of the missing persons. UK government and some other western countries are also responsible for the missing and killing by supporting the war. Naturally they will hesitate to go against the government of Srilanka. In fact UK is Responsible for the present plight of the Tamils. The fact that they did not restore the status quo of the Tamils before they left the Island speaks volume. At least they should have introduced a fool proof constitution to safe guard the Tamils before leaving. Did they? except for the section 29 which did not have any teeth.
    Participating in Pongal and Deepawali festivals and speaking a few words in Tamil takes you nowhere.
    It is similar to our politicians Hippocratic behaviour. After all, politicians all over the world are the same, except they vary in degree..

    NPC is a racist arm of the Sinhala Buddhist Apartheid leaders and NPC is trying to protect War criminals, Serial Killers , Serial rapists from accountability;

    NPC seems a propaganda and cover up organization of Sihala Buddhist war crimes and Genocide;

    International Community must intervene militarily and investigate war crimes and all crimes with ground troops protecting those who provide evidence and witness.

    How can NPC recommends for an extension when last ten Years of failure by the Sinhala Buddhist government and no progess on accountability at all and promoting and recognizing alleged war criminals? Tamils will view NPC is against peace, stability, Justice and accountability but a voice in support of Sinhala Buddhist racism, hatred, denials and protect them from accountability..

    Over 75 Years of Sinhala Buddhist terrorism against Tamils and these beasts are only living in Sri Lanka while Tamils are living all over the world in peace, contributing to the development of those nations, progressing academically, professionally and also politically. We look forward a raising star from Tamil background Kamala Harris as next US President and hope to put an end to Sinhala Buddhist war crimes, bullying, intimidation, attack, rape, torture and all crimes once and for all.

    Eelam is the only answer to bring peace, stability, harmony, freedom and independence to the Tamils.

      These people in the NPC are not honest and sincere to their policy. These organizations are for making money. Because of these crooks the NPC has lost its identity.
      for the last four years after the UNHRC REsolution 30/1 can anyone point out any recommendation fulfilled up to this date,.
      Just opening the offices is like fooling the victims and UN.
      It must function and must focus on finding justice rather than finding excuses.

    The University that granted Jehan Perera qualification, should recall it as he does not deserve and he is simply exposing his Sinhala Buddhist hatred and racist venom to Tamils, minorities and victims.

    What a disgrace that Jehan is recommending to delay Accountability and Justice for crimes committed 10 Years aho and many victims and family members already dead and unreasonable delay in the accountability process.

    National Peace Council (NPC) may change it’s name to reflect their writings as “National Piss Council” as it is trying to “piss” on victims and those who demand for accountability and Justice.

    Is there any morality when NPC request for delay as the SL government continues to allow racist Buddhist Monks illegally occupy and put an new Buddhist temples in Tamils’ lands, appoints an alleged war criminal to a key position, never responded and started an investigation of forcibly disappeared Tamils, Army is allegedly marketing and dealing with Drugs, running hotels and businesses, Army that is accused of sexual abuses during UN assignments are in Schools especially Girls’ School and interfering in civil administration and one may wonder whether Sri Lanka is run by the army and not a civil administration?

    The war destroyed both sides for many years. For what?

    Only to satisfy the greed of many nations, who supports the industry of war.

    These are the same people who controls the UNHRC.

    It’s just common sense to have army presence every where to ensure no uprising of terrorism.

    If you look at what UN is doing in other parts of the world you can understand this.

    Prabhakaran was a known thug in Jafna. Who was made by mainly due to the treatment he had, from his own Tamil people, because of his cast.

    Even now the Tamil community treats the Batticaloa Tamils the same way. This was the reason RW managed to break the LTTE unity.

    Sri Lankan unity is the only way to survive from the worldly attacks in disguise.

    Indian RAW used these thugs to ignite a war for financial gains and it worked.

    Of course the Sinhalese majority have done a lot of wrong due to greed. And we too don’t treat every one equally.

    Only way forward is to forget and embrace each other. Let’s make the differences our strength, not our weakness.

      Suranga, please write sensibly, honestly and truthfully.
      Caste system is everywhere and even in Sinhalese but there isn’t any acste system in LTTE. LTTE was product of Sinhala Buddhsit racism, hatred, violence, attack, bullying and state terrorism. Indian Govt under Indra Gandhi and MGR supported, armed and trained Tamil rebels to mitigate state terrorism. Indian leaders like George Fernandes, Yashwant Sinha and several others supported Tamil Eelam. You can’t hide this as Sinhala Buddhist state terrorism started since the end of British colonialism in 1948 and not in the 1970s. Ambalavanar Sivanandan , former Director of Race Relations fled Sri Lanka to the UK in 1958 after race riots.

      Sinhala values are full of violence, sexual abuses, looting and criminal activities and Sinhala Buddhist Monks are the worst abusers and criminals and have you ever heard that a Hindu Priest was abusive or involved in politics?

      Tamils are now living in many countries peacefully, progressing well academically, politically, professionally and time will tell how they will end Sinhala Buddhist barbarianism. Eelam Tamils are praised for building Singapore and great leaders in Singapore. Tell us where a Sinhala is a true leader expect a leader in war crimes, sexual abuses and corruption? Even Sinhala armed forces are accused of committing sexual abuses while on UN peace keeping operations.

      UN should intervene militarily and investigate all crimes since 1948 with foreign Judges. Your denial to UN investigation is simply to hide your genocide and war crimes.

        Mr or Mrs. Silva,
        ,
        The feeling is mutual. You are fueling the fire, while endorsing that LTTE is and was fighting for justice.
        ,
        Learn a bit of history and find what happened after the British left.
        ,
        1. All the Sinhalese who lived in North were chased or were murdered and robbed their wealth.
        2. The same happened to the Muslims after a little while.
        3. Because the Tamil henchman were loyal to the British, Jafna and Colombo the key positions were held by them.
        4. Sundaralingam and chelvanayagam wanted 50 percent representation of power when 80 percent were Sinhalese.
        5. The Sinhalese didn’t have enough lecturers in the university, science stream. Clear favouritism was shown for the Tamils in the university entrance exams.
        ,
        I can go on to give many issues we Sinhalese had when the Tamils had the upper hand.
        ,
        This shows that the Tamil leaders neither cared for the Sinhalese, Muslims or neither the Tamils in under developed areas.
        ,
        As I said before the Sinhalese leaders did not do well after they came to power.
        ,
        If you didn’t know, the late president J.R. Jayawardana’s family came from South India and worked against Srilankans under Dutch and English Era’s.
        ,
        This is how they earned their power and wealth and became a mudaliar in Hambanthota.
        ,
        So the first Sinhalese president is Premadasa, though there were some little issues.
        ,
        Kindly understand that we are going backwards and helping the other parties interested in fuelling the fire.
        ,
        Only way forward is to forget and embrace each other without discrimination because both parties are not to be blamed except for their two faced and corrupt leaders.

          Suranga,
          Tamils know well that Sinhala creates new history that never existed and that’s why Tamils are demanding for an international investigation with foreign experts and Judges and bring the perpetrators to accountability irrespective of their status.
          Sri Lanka is the worst inhumane nation in the plant as Sinhala leaders disenfranchised Upcountry Tamils despite they are the backbone on the economy at that time and they were brought to Sri Lanka by the British Colonial rulers. Similarly, British and French took Tamils to may nations including Mauritius, Re-Union, Guadeloupe, Malaysia, Fuji, South Africa and they became citizens of the new nations. January is name as “Tamil Heritage Month” in many nations including Canada and the USA. Western leaders are becoming familiar and aware of Tamils and their struggle for accountability and Justice in Sri Lanka.
          Please note that Eelam was merged by the colonial rulers with Sinhala nations for easy administration and Sinhala Nation was ruled by Tamil Kings from time to time. Tamil kings ruled most of South East Asia and Angor Wat and Hindu temples in Indonesia (Indonesian currency still has Hindu God despite it is the largest Muslim country today) proved Tamils’ dominance.
          When Tamil militants were not active, Jaffna Tamil Library that is the biggest in South East Asia was burnt down by Sinhala leaders and armed forces with malicious intention to destroy Tamils’ identity and history. Tamils are living all over the world and they are united now than ever before to put an end to Sinhala Buddhist lies, war crimes and illegal occupation of Tamils’ Lands.
          The last King of Kandy (SInhala area) in 1815 was a Tamil and he signed documents in Tamil at that time. You state that Sinhalese lived in Tamil areas and history indicates that only Sinhala students came to study in missionary schools, Sinhala boys came as servants to work in homes and few businesses mostly bakeries run by Sinhala.

            Are there Tamils living in Sinhalese majority Areas?
            What rights don’t the Tamils have?
            Why don’t the UN human rights get involved in the killing of 80000 Sinhalese youngsters?
            This should answer your questions with some research about what I wrote before.

              Suranga,
              Are you not aware why Tamils struggle for independence started in the 1970s although Sinhala Buddhist state terrorism and oppression started after British left in 1948?
              Famous and popular leaders including India Gandhi, MGR, Yashwant Sinha, George Fernandes and several leaders supported Eelam struggle and armed, trained LTTE to mitigate Sinhala Buddhist state terrorism and as democratic values denied to Tamils.
              Do you know why Rajiv Gandhi ordered Indian Air Force Jets to fly over Jaffna?
              Sinhala leaders and hooligans only believe in violence against Tamils, deny democratic rights and only international military intervention will deliver Justice.
              In 1965 Singapore was a poor country compared to Sri Lanka and Sinhala Buddhist racism and hatred, corruption resulting Sri Lanka to bleed and in ruins while Singapore prospered as a Global Financial powerhouse and Eelam Tamil S Rajaratnam was partnered with Hon Lee Kuan Yew to build the nation.
              Who killed 80,000 Sinhalese youngers? Your Sinhala Leader Srimavo Bandaranayake? She may not be good for Kitchen but brought to lead a Party and later JR Jeyawardene removed many leaders Civil rights and all are Sinhala leaders.
              The failure of Tamil leaders at the time of independence, not demanding to separate (de-merge) Eelam like Mohd Jinna demanded for Pakistan from the British colonial rulers led to Tamils’ sufferings. Tamils are sick and tired of Sinhala Buddhist racism, hatred. war crimes, abuses denial of human and democratic rights and only Eelam will bring lasting solution.
              Can you live with Sinhala serial killers, serial rapists, sexual abusers? Can you tell an instance that LTTE abuses, raped a Sinhala woman or girl? Tamils values are different and they live all over the world peacefully. Due to Sinhala barbarianism, Tam

    Suranga,

    My name is “Siva” and not “Silva” that is a Portuguese name.

    Sinhala people must not allow politicians to deceive or fool them as it is going to affect them in the long term. Tamils are very close with Burghers who too fled Sri Lanka as they thought racial hatred (Linguistic and religious hatred) will ruin any nation without fail.

    Sri lanka Sinhala Buddhist Monks’ interference in politics and Buddhist is regarded as first religion is fueling the fire more than anything as non Sinhalese and non Buddhist are not equals. This exposes Sinhala recaism and hatred towards others. Sinhala leaders are highly corrupt and they fool the ordinary masses to help accumulate wealth for their family and friends.

    No country that has religious and linguistic issues prospered in history. Strict rule of law, equal opportunities based on merit has helped Singapore to become from a fishing village to Global Financial powerhouse where Eelam Tamils are respected as “Architects in building the nation” and several senior ministers are Tamils of Jaffna origin. Google’s CEO is a Tamil and if USA has a racist policy, USA wouldn’t have developed / grown to this level.

    Sinhalese only live in Sri Lanka and their views like “frog in the well” and they believe that they can win the land by violence and riots. Time will tell all of us but certainly Tamils and Burghers who fled Sri Lanka are progressing well, reaching new heights and that will force Western nations to act and put an end to Sinhala Buddhist barbarianism.

      Sorry for the mistake of name Siva…
      ,
      We are happy frogs in a well. You are welcome to enjoy the simple life we try to maintain.
      ,
      Like you, we are not interested in other wells or the shrimps in the lagoons.
      ,
      If you didn’t know there are many holidays recognized in Sri Lanka in honour of other religions. We don’t need a month like Canada for that.
      ,
