      It seems you have never listened to her, Cameron et al.

      They always spoke about journalist, attack on churches, mosques first and very little about the tamils and their struggle.

      you sinhal buddhist modayas especially of the south and the northern tamil are just digging the grave of every one else in the land.

      The land does not belong to anyones father.

      Now go read the full article of 34 pages.

      A sad day for any hopes for a just new world order.

      The whole report is unmitigated hypocrisy and unrelenting negativity.

      Just look at the very first recommendation: “(a) Finalise laws dealing with incitement to hatred …” If this is not incitement, what is incitement? A country desperately trying to put its past behind and move forward by taking constructive steps towards reconciliation and unity based on pluralism is being constantly bombarded with narrow and divisive ethno-nationalist messages. The whole exercise is to keep reminding the people of their past failures in nation building and to rekindle the hatred and mistrust that beset the country for so long. People are being encouraged to seek revenge rather than reconciliation.

      Navi Pillay then talks about the right to information. But whose right? Will she also respect the right to information of the Sri Lankan people and take steps to make available the following information to us:

      1) India’s role, in contravention of international law, in financing, training and equipping the LTTE and other Tamil militant groups to launch terrorist attacks in Sri Lanka.

      2) How Norway, in contravention of international law, conspired with the LTTE to undermine the constitution and sovereignty of the people, and divide the country under the pretext of “peace negotiations.”

      3) How the US, EU and Norway, in contravention of international law, tried to impose a ceasefire with the connivance of the UN to rescue Prabakaran and other top LTTE leaders in order to give oxygen to LTTE and keep the country embroiled in conflict and thus prolong human right violations.

      4) How the western countries with Tamil Diasporas violated international law in overlooking or even allowing the LTTE to use their soil and resources to raise funds (through voluntary contributions, extortion, and through various criminal activities), undergo training, and procure weapons in order to launch terrorist attacks in Sri Lanka.

      5) Finally will Navi Pillay stop violating the rights of Sri Lankan people by withholding information about current efforts of the US and its allies to bring about a regime change in Sri Lanka with the connivance of the UN, human rights organizations, NGOs and their local civil society agents under the pretext of redressing human right violations and war crimes. What Navi Pillay is presently revealing is only partial information sanctioned by her US masters meant for public consumption.

      Navi Pillay, we Sri Lankans demand you to provide us access to full information pertaining to measures that are underway to deprive our freedom as a people and undermine the future of our country – instead of the cynical public relations prattle that you have come up with. It is our right to information that you are violating.

        You have come up sheer emotional drivel!

        “It is our right to information that you are violating.”

        On what basis you say that Ms Pillay violated your right to information? Please grow up and face the facts as a man. You feel violated and deprived standing on a Sinhala Buddhist platform decrying that you are not being allowed to establish a system of governance favouring the chosen people! The Tamils seek justice and you have no capacity or willingness to offer! Your emotions have obscured your vision such that you cannot see that justice and accountability are the bedrocks of democracy. We need to build a nation on a just and equal platform; hopefully the UN will assist in this endeavour!

    Wrong+Wrong does not equal right.I do not for a moment condone Iraq,Afganistan and so on. This is the typical mind set of most of the people, UNP was also involved in Corruption and Murder and we UPFA also do it. This is even proudly claimed in TV debates by the ruling party and claim that they are lesser evils than the UNP. When will we come to our senses and behave humanely and stop castigating the other party.

      Nation’s idiot who is nobody else the president himself is worried about the manner that people criticise this regime today. It is all because of lack of feasibility in road and building constructions- that only abuse the funds of tax payers’s. Their motto have been making avenues for the revenues of familial rule rather than anything else. Some villagers are very angry being unable to see the roads getting damaged not even passing 2-3 years after them being made. There are no govt that would earn no corruption of various forms. But the levels of Rajapskes have achieved have gone all record levels, this but sending poorest of the poor in hunger. Today, they are reported to be eating bitter guards, melons or bannana stems to survive the life in some rural parts while money extortions have been the part of their agenda for the development of schools and other so called projects. In a thuggish manner, SB dissanayake lately made it clear that they more than 6% of the GDP is being spent on the education sector, asked whether they could show them, was unanswered telling something palatable to bury all lords of blatant lies. This is not only the nature of SB or few others but most of them in the coalition cocktail. Some dont even dare to face the life today, becasue pepole’ resistance have just started.

    I await the haters to come out of the woodwork against Pillai -for the record this regime voted FOR her in her reelection , I wonder why LOL

    That Ms.Pillai would call for an international investigation was expected, but now that the report is official we should step back and understand the seriousness of this. This is another defining moment in SL’s contemporary history. This is the head of the Apex human rights body, recommending in an official report that an international intervention needs to take place, because SL is incapable of governing itself in a civilized manner. Rather than being grown ups and taking responsibility for their actions, the GOSL is resorting to their only strategy: the ad-hominem attack – Attack Ms.Pillai, the US, the UK, India and even the UN system. It’s amazing to see so many two bit politicians dare to question the integrity of the UN system. They do this because they don’t understand the value of their own membership in the UN system. Do they have any idea what the Palestinian people would give to attend the UN general assembly as a fully fledged member even for one day? SL doesn’t value its membership in the UN because it didn’t work for it. It was handed to them on a silver platter. It’s not certain if the Tamil people will get a seat at the table at the UN in the foreseeable future, but what is certain is that if that were to happen, they would never in a million years, question the integrity of the UN, its secretary general or the high commissioner of human rights.

      Yes they cant tolerate any others’s views. There they are losers by all means. Only learnt diplomats would know how to address those issues. MR and the ones in lanken cocktail should be very much aware of the danger before them. The mandate given by the people or dragged from the people, if I may say so, they could make genuine efforts to achieve peace. But as many criticise them today, Rajapakse’s arrogance and folly have not allowed him to achieve at least 1% towards the peace. Physical constructions are though essential, they are still secondary so long all channels to the achieve peace are blocked because of their lack of knowledge how to gain them. People are attacking the opposition today, but they ruling virulent coalition would not allow anyone to criticise them, nor would they admit any wrong doings. Those who praise them are promoted regardless of them being just the social scum. Even Premadasa had good areas people could praise him much. But Rajapaskse are just born thugs that pave the way only uncultured rascals to grow easily.

    My word Ms Pillay has not beaten around the bush! I think that the Rajapaskas have made a calculated blunder by antagonising this woman! This document is official and carries with it credence and respectability. Many countries that MR hopes to lobby, have much mull with; will they discard such a document from a person with such a record? The African countries in particular will respect her history with South African post Apartheid period. Is this the beginning of the end of the Rajapaksas?

    You bloody Tamils are the most ungrateful bunch that used Sri Lanka for education now you want to use foreign countries. What do you call homeland when you people are full of hatred. Bloody dirty greedy stingy people who never do anything honestly. All are crooks. Some remain in IDP camps because food and water is free but they stash away Rs. 15 million in the bank and say they are deprived.

    All of you are living abroad and you don’t care about your poor and low caste people. You all talk about lack of opportunities, but you took away the lives of children who should be in school and made them killers. You people should have a special hell for what you did to people in 29 years of killing and that maniac filmed killing and watched them. He must be burning in hell. Navi Pillay looks like the devil herself. She will soon join him. Tamils only pull for Tamils. Cheats and liars!!!

    No one in his or her right mind denies that atrocities did occur during
    the war. The burning question is how best to reconcile and bring respect to all Sri Lankans. Especially the victims of the war on either side. This fight between the Sinhalese and the Tamils have gone on for far too long.
    All those directly responsible for the atrocities must face the law.

    We have to give up divisive attitudes and work to reconcile and heal the victims primarily, next, we have to work towards a one nation giving up EALAAM totally and thirdly we Sinhalese must never forget
    that though we are the majority every Sri Lankan is a human being and all Sri Lankans being of the same human species have exactly the same needs.

    Warning – some of the links are graphic.

    Keep your audio on
