Full Speech: “Cooperate With A Credible Truth­seeking Process” Outgoing Navi Pillay Tells Sri Lanka

Navi Pillay

“I note also that last month marked the fifth anniversary of the end of the war in Sri Lanka, where the scars created by terrorism and conflict have yet to heal. My Office has now put in place a staff team that will be supported by several experts and Special Procedures mandate holders, to conduct the comprehensive investigation mandated by this Council in order to advance accountability, and thus reconciliation. I encourage the Government to take this opportunity to cooperate with a credible truth­seeking process.”  says the outgoing UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay

    Dear Ms. Pillai,

    Full Speech: “Cooperate With A Credible Truth­seeking Process” Outgoing Navi Pillay Tells Sri Lanka

    “I note also that last month marked the fifth anniversary of the end of the war in Sri Lanka, where the scars created by terrorism and conflict have yet to heal. “

    You are so ignorant as to the Behavior of Para Sinhala and Para-Tamils. read the lies and imaginations of Para-Monk Mahanama of Mahawansa fame and notoriety, and the read St Lanka, the Land of native Veddah, history since 1948. You will understand.

    Both Groups are racists. Ono Group follows “Buddhism” and the other “Hinduism.”

    If you really want to help these two Paras, please ask Hon. Mr. Modi to take these Paras back to South India..

    THE SELECTION SHOW POINT NAVI PILLAY IS A DAMN FRAUD WITH A HIDDEN AGENDA……..Its not truth seeking but a with hunt… GOSL no cooperation please. Coffin is made only to be nailed.

    Cooperate with DAME Cartright…. such a Weasle ??
    Dame Silvia Cartwright who was a judge on the Khmer Rouge Tribunal to head the investigation against Sri Lanka. Defense lawyers sought her removal as she had been having secret meetings with the prosecutors.
    So much for Cartwright…… Need to cart her out.

    An Amnesty International lackey who crept into the UN- SANDRA BEIDAS

    Expelled from Somalia: Sandra Beidas working for Navi Pillai’s office was banned by Somalia in 2011…. Kicked OUT
    Expelled from South Sudan: The expulsion of Sandra Beidas in 2012 following her expulsion from Somalia was really no surprise.KICKED OUT
    Sandra Beidas roles within the UN system

    Prior to joining the UN, Beidas was working for Amnesty International which adds to her controversial past records.

    January 2006 – Head of Protection and Reporting Section – Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights in Nepal (OHCHR-Nepal)
    UN Mission in Haiti – 120 team comprised representatives of 20 countries following ouster of President Aristide in 1991 and setting up of the UN mission after US intervention. Beidas handled peacebuilding efforts in Haiti.

    This Lady has spent the last 5 years of her HRC role solely to create an Eelaam for her Tamil community.

    Although she has to neglect horrendous HR violations elsewhere with Drone attacks on Mums and Kids resulting in the bomb attack in Karachi airport yesterday,.one has to give it to her for untiring and unwavering effort to help her Diaspora community.

    Even old Elara couldn’t extend the Eelaam to even Tamil Nadu.

    This Lady has helped the ex LTTE financiers and supporters to establish mini Eelaams from London to Toronto via Oslo and new York.

    And the biggest one created far is in Tamil Nadu.where the once anti Prabakaran CM has now become the LTTE protege Vaikos , partner.

    Leaving her HR role must be really hard for her because the Eelaam in Srilanka didn’t materialize despite the backing of the mighty West,

    That is because the poor inhabitants there who suffered three decades from LTTE terrorists didn’t want to swallow Ms Pillai.s Pill (Guli).to cure all their ills.

    Because they know that it has severe side effects.

    Although Ms Pillai is leaving the HR chair, our inhabitants are aware that she ids not going to leave them alone until they agree to give LTTE proxy TNA their Eelaam.

    But they want to wish her well in her retirement, .

      KAS Couldn’t agree more.

      Try as she did, could not get it done, reluctantly though have to commend MR Regime for wiping off the scourge of terrorism from our country or what ever is left of it.

      Velu Baba and the gang must be having a bowl on the other side,(must be fun to walk around without part of your brains) while the majority of diashora’s are still contributing $10 a month to have their Elam dream fulfilled.

      Why don’t the Diashora’s get permission from MR to build an reclaimed island off Jafna peninsula and call it “Peelam” ! I am sure it will be given serious thoughts depending on the amount of money they get as commission.

      Food for thought for the Tamils all over the world !

        “reluctantly though have to commend MR Regime for wiping off the scourge of terrorism from our country or what ever is left of it.”

        May I remind you that it was IC including USA and Hindia which wiped off terrorism albeit temporarily from this island. That was the mood that prevailed after 1971 which recurred between 1987 and 1991.

        There is amble opportunity terrorism rearing its head once again either in the North or South. Your self congratulation is bit premature.

        Until those issues which led to emergence of terrorism are dealt with you are rest assured of recurrence of terrorism again and again.

        You have to be tough on terrorism, however you have to be tough on causes of terrorism before it is to late.

          I agree, that’s why my credit to MR regime for blowing Valu Baba’s head off is measured. That does not mean I endorse what this regime does. They have lost a golden opportunity to bring lasting peace to this Island.

          Whether MR can do that or whether we will go back to terrorism is a subject to speculation. However I am hopeful the Sri Lakan masses of all communities had learned their bitter lessons of carnage in south/east/west and north not to go back to that era. It will be a real test given political immaturity of our voters.

          But I am hoping a common front will be formed to defeat family and communal politics from Sri Lanka.

          But I took immense pleasure from the events in 2009, of course innocent lives were lost, which was happening for the past 30 years. Now it has stopped.

          I can see by the “Dong” votes most Diashora’s are not ready to reconcile. They will lick anyone’s ass to make trouble in Sri Lanka.

            “But I am hoping a common front will be formed to defeat family and communal politics from Sri Lanka. “

            Then what is next?

            The Sinhala majoritarian have been voting and sustaining most corrupt, most brutal, most inhuman politicians, most communal racists as their representatives since independence.

            Can you guarantee the next time around its going to change?

            The problem is that the majoritarian believe the land exclusively belong to them hence those who promised to keep it that way by any means get more votes than the next racist party.

            Secondly the majoritarian refused to see the issues from a minority point of view. They think there is no issues to be solved since the obliteration of LTTE as if LTTE was the only issue. Even the so called educated humbugs who pretend to demand equal rights to all, do so from a Sinhala/Buddhist majoritarian perspective, arrogantly believe whatever they deem reasonable should be accepted by the minorities.

            Thirdly the state structure as it is not going to deliver any political goods to people. The structure to change first you accept the nation building process had been perverted by all kind of non-secular measures, laws and practices backed by unlimited violence, a private public partnership.

            Fourthly the ordinary people have resigned to the fact that being crook is the only way out of poverty and misery. They obediently sell their souls to the most corrupt party and willing to oblige anything that the party demand of them. Therefore its only a matter of time even the most honest people are recruited into either of the party, and the opposition party members bite their time awaiting to be sworn in as the next government. The story continues.

            Ask yourself a question. How did we end up here? Revisit the history of how the elections were won and lost since 1948.

            Sinhala/Buddhist majoritarian have to now stop digging if they want to come out of the pit.

            The problem with stupid Tamils and stupid Sinhalese is that both believe they are smarter than the other.

              I cannot dispute what you say, but as a human being all I can do is hope.

              You say

              “The problem with stupid Tamils and stupid Sinhalese is that both believe they are smarter than the other”

              In other words we will never reach a acceptable, equal and just solution for all communities in Sri Lanka for a long time to come as long as these 2 stupid communities keep on feuding on a problem which has no solution (Tamils wants self rule, Sinhalese will and even muslims will never allow it)

              As a muslim for me and I assume most of the muslims this is not an issue. We are not looking to rule this land. We do not have ambitions of converting the rest to Islam. For us we are merely looking for a reasonable passage of life for us and our generations.

              Our (muslims) life in this world ends with death. We don’t have to worry about rebirth. We only have to manage less than 60-70 years of life on earth.

              So during this short period we are not going to dwell on petty things. All what we want is to live in harmony with the ability to practice our religion and enjoy the short stay according to what has been allowed to us.

              On the other hand the other 2 communities will keep fighting long and hard for millennia to come as they have to ensure there future generation have a exclusive singhala Buddhist land or Tamul Eelam as they believe they will keep coming back again and again.

              (Though I seriously doubt any one still believes in rebirth, what that does to fundamentals of this 2 faiths is beyond my
              comprehension)

              Majority will always have preference there is no way that can be eradicated from the mindset of this lot. But what the majority should ensure is that rest of the communities can live with dignity having the freedom to practice their own religion.

              Now one say muslims are believing in an illusion, I would say so what ? if it is a illusion nothing wrong happens after death. This belief prevents us from indulging in alcohol, prevents us from committing murder and rape.

              But if it is the right path then hey we are in the winning side !

              I know lot of this is irrelevant to the subject matter, but what this is basically the frustration we have on current state of affairs in Sri Lanka. Now if the majority community does not have these concerns they are fools.

              The dream of better country, prosperity peace and harmony carried forward for decades during the war has not been realized since end of war. Worst of all we are heading towards further conflicts, country is sitting on mountain of debt, corruption and nepotism is rampant.

              Who can change this ? I think We need to find a hero from zero.

              Opps rebirth is a myth, which means even if there was a elem in TN u wont get to live in it.

            She (Jane Rusell) says “…A. J. Wilson goes further. He has argued that the “ethos of tolerance” encouraged by Buddhism has provided solutions to vexed problems” thereby serving a “prime factor” in the maintenance of parliamentary system.””

            Then AJ Wilson says “The scars of the horrendous war that the Sinhala Buddhist State has waged against us will remain a festering sore.” http://www.tamilcanadian.com/eelam/hrights/?cat=19&id=1000627

              Dear Anpu,

              I too agree with A. J. Wison’s argument that “ethos of tolerance” encouraged by Buddhism has provided solutions to vexed problems” thereby serving a “prime factor” in the maintenance of parliamentary system.”

              Dr Russell quoted that paragraph because she too agrees with it.

              It does not necessarily follow that she agrees with Everything that A. J. Wilson churns out.

              I asked what Dr Jane Russel said in her doctoral thesis submission, NOT what A. J Wilson wrote on an Eelamist website.

    Even if Pillay or UN failed to help Siri Lanka, I believe this is a big step forward in humanity and human civilization… Union which represent whole world is coming forward to help minorities of an economically insignificant small country of $10 billion Gov budget.. (Only in US, there are more than 200 companies which has budget/revenue more than $10 billion.. How many multinational companies in the world with more than $100 billion revenue? )…

    Tamils threatened with war. Tamils wanted the war. Tamils started the war. Tamils glorified killing of sinhalese, including pregnant women and babies.Tamils suffered a humiliating defeat.
    When the racist Tamil war machine was doing the killing Nazi Pullai did nothing. Nazi Pullai wanted more killing of Sinhalese.
    Now Tamils want everybody else to fight their racist campaign. Put your reports and talks of justice in the nearest dustbin.

    Ms. Pillai: ” Cooperate with Credible Truth Seeking Process”. What RUBBISH is this.

    You did not know how to SELECT CREDIBLE PERSONS to carrying on with the “Investigation”. With the type of “Credible people” appointed, you have put your own credibility to the test. Of course, you did not have any credibility at all, in that, all your efforts were devoted solely to Sri Lanka, but completely and conveniently forgot what was going on, in all other conflicts in the rest of world, mainly orchestrated by the “Big Powers”.

    It is a sigh of relief to see that you are leaving.

    The best the IC can do is classifying Lanka as a terrorist nation the same way BBS was.

    This would put the boot lickers at bay because they are prone to an attack from IAF.

    If folk cannot live as equals (during 500 year European rule they were but equal) because the majority can never be trusted to implement then let there be a division- there will be Sihala bloodshed So what? At least the issue would be put to a stop and there would be calm.
