How Global Is Global Tamil Forum?

By Rajasingham Jayadevan

My article, ‘Transparency Needed In Dealings With The GTF’ datelined October 19,2015 received considerable interests from various quarters. Most of the contacts appreciated the effort to open a debate on the issues involving the Global Tamil Forum (GTF).

Many cheers to the few hand counts for reflecting their historical personal hate in anonymity towards me. This is something I am prone to since my release from captivity from the LTTE in Vanni in 2005. Their facelessness in their harpings gives the flavour of ever progressing malady that needs to be banished with responsible debates. Whilst giving a gentle pat for the few historical hate promoters for their time and effort to gory spin anything I write, I wish their spineless hidebound hate will find its way out soon.

With earnest gratitude, I wish to thank those who provided me with well-intended information about the GTF to formulate this write up. This is a much needed initial process for the evolvement of wider democratic discussions that should lead to fearless public debates that the Tamil Diaspora is seriously lacking.

I spent greater part of my analysis herein on the information given to me by a well-intended young energetic Tamil activist of the manifold of active Tamil Diaspora, who is tirelessly working to bring the Tamil issues to the international forums. In a real sense, the GTF has hijacked the pioneering achievement of the thousands of global Tamil diaspora, whom have been flatly undermined for their narrow minded and self-centric effort.

GTFIn my previous article, I confirmed that GTF was formed with the change of name from International Federation of Tamils following the annihilation of the arms struggle of the LTTE in May 2009. Rightly, the GTF obtained its legal status with the online filing of its registration with the UK Companies House on 17 November 2009. Global Tamil Forum Ltd – a company limited by guarantee, was electronically formed on this date.

Global Tamil Forum Ltd was formed with the statement of guarantee of a single £1 subscribing membership of Nalliah Sivarasan of 66 Worcester Park Road, Worcester Park Surrey, KT4 7QD, which was the original registered office of the GTF. He was one of the British Tamil Forum (BTF) members. The Company House records confirm he was the sole director of GTF and resigned on 1 June 2013. The company did not appoint a Secretary until Allan George Pratt, stating the same address, was appointed on 10 December 2011. He resigned on 14 January 2015. According to information, A G Pratt is/was an employee of Sen Kandiah, a GTF and Labour activist whom the GTF subsequently ostracised and isolated.

The Company House search further confirms that Prakash Rajasundaram, an IT consultant and a resident of Australia was appointed as director on 1 June 2012. Instead of filing his Australian address, his residential address is stated as 14 The Glade, Croydon, England CR0 7QB which is the current registered office of GTF. My source close to the GTF queried: ‘It is not clear whether he (P Rajasundaram) has declared his directorship of GTF to his employer or his mortgage lender, which may have restrictions on being a director of an insolvent company’. With him, Velupillai Kuhanendran was appointed as director on 19 April 2012. V Kuhendran was a former member of the militant group Eelam Research Organisations.

It is an offence to file false details of the office holders with the Companies House. GTF directors and the Secretary all along have failed to disclose their private addresses in the Companies House register.

The current registered office of GTF filed with the Companies House is 4 The Glade, Croydon CR0 7QB. The company’s Standard Industrial Classification number is 94990 i.e., Activities of other membership organizations n.e.c, of even the likes of a local Caravan Club Ltd. Compared to the GTF, the national political party, the United Kingdom Independence Party – registered as a Limited Guarantee Company, of which Dr Raj Chandran is a committee member, has rightly identified its specific mission as: (94920) Activities of political organisations.

The Global Tamil Forum Ltd has adopted the standard Memorandum and Articles of Association template (model articles for private companies limited by guarantee) of the Companies House in the conduct of its business.

The Global Tamil Forum Ltd enjoyed its entitlement to exemption under section 477 of the Companies Act 2006 relating to small companies from not filing its annual Income and Expenditure accounts. The limited balance sheets and notes filed for the years ending 31 December 2010 to 31 December 2014 except for 31 December 2011 confirms that the basic figures are not flowing through and losing track. The accounts for the year ending 31 December 2011 was prepared by an independent accountancy firm Metier King & Co., Chartered Certified Accountant which gives disclosure of Income and Expenditure and Balance Sheet of the GTF. During this year, the income derived from donations, gifts and subscriptions amounted to £136,324. The expenditure over-stretched the income to £169,133 mainly spent for Internal advocacy (£20,477) and Diplomatic engagement expenses (£147,881). Most of this money was spent on a extravagant showcase event in parliament for the self-aggrandisement of Suren Surendiran rather than on advocacy work. According to disclosure, the membership liability that stood at £1 at the formation of the company went up to £10.

The Company House served notice on Global Tamil Forum Ltd on 22 March 2011 to dissolve the company. The notice was annulled on 7 April 2011 on the grounds of ‘Cause has been shown why the above company should not be struck off the register and accordingly the Registrar is taking no further action under section 1000 of the Companies Act 2006’. According to information, the striking off process was started as a result of Suren Surendran & Co attempting to undermine the name of a company formed by the BTF.

GTFThe BTF had complained to the Companies House that lead to GTF giving up its hostile effort against the BTF resulting in the withdrawal of the statutory notice. This attempt by Suren Surendran to form a company similar to BTF, compelled him to dissolve the BTF related company after striking-off threat. It was said to be an attempted back door takeover of BTF.

GTFThe present registered office 4 The Glade, Croydon CR0 7QB is a private residence said to be owned by the director V Kuhenendran’s wife and daughter. This is the GTF’s third change of registered office following non -payment of rent for their Westminster office amounting to £50,000.

What is clear from the above facts is that the GTF’s claims of sole representation of the Diaspora Tamils is not progressing to disclose the full extent of its affairs to the public and its very status of limited guarantee is an irresponsible process to cover up the facts. Its global portrayal is limited to engagement of a few hand-picked members in the expatriate community.

One source said the very survival of the activities of Suren Surendran and the GTF is greatly dependent on Fr Emanual’s engagement with the company. The much respected Fr Emanual has earned the credibility with his tireless commitment to serve the Tamil people is now being hijacked by Suren Surendran & Co. According to sources, Suren Surendran does not disclose the full extent of his activities to Fr Emanual and Fr Emanual too is not bothered to query Surendran’s behind the scene works to avoid confrontations and distraction from his commitment to serve his people.

One well informed source said Vellupillai Kuhenendran had attended an anti-holocaust event last year and his anti-comments have infuriated Jewish Cabinet Minsiters and MPs who have been vocal in their support for Tamils. Even the South African Foreign Ministry have expressed annoyance that Suren Surendran is stubbornly resisting wider Tamil engagement in the South African initiative.

A Colombo based source said the other two oxygenating valves promoting Suren Surendran is the External Affairs Minister Mangala Samaraweera and TNA’s M.A. Sumanthiran MP who are either not willing or enjoying the comfort of exclusively dealing with Surendran, without opening the channels to engage with wider Tamil interests. In that, they are failing to understand the simmering discontents that could have wider implications for the credibility of the government and the TNA. This when British politicians and the South African Foreign Ministry have expressed disappointment in its actions.

    Mr Jayadevan.
    You supported LTTE and then was a prisoner of LTTE. Now you are critical of LTTE, TNA, GTF, SL Govt and of course you would be critical of BTF as well. All you needs Transparency, and Transparency alone. You cannot find an entity which is 100% correctly in your perception. Is there anything else you can do which may benefit the Tamil People back home? Try to be another perfectionist not useful to any community.

    In a Tamil film titled “Thiruvilaiyadal” (The Divine Game)was a film produced by director A.P.Nagarajan based on the Thiruvilaiyadal Puranam, a collection of sixty-four Shaivite, devotional epic story. It records the actions and antics of Lord Shiva appearing on Earth in various disguises to test his devotees.The late Nagesh plays the role of a poor and less known poet Dharumi. And Shivaji Ganeshan plays the role of Siva disguised as a poet. The Pandyan King wanted to find the answer to a question whether the fragrance from the Queen’s woman’s hair is natural or artificial — and announces a reward of 1000 gold coins to anyone who can come up with the answer. Dharumi desperately wants the reward and starts praying at the Meenakshi Amman Temple. Shiva, hearing his cries, takes the form of a poet and gives Dharumi a poem containing the answer. Overjoyed, Dharumi takes the poem to kings court and recites it, but Nakkeerar, the court’s chief poet, claims the poem’s meaning is incorrect. On hearing this, Shiva argues with Nakkeerar about the poem’s accuracy, burning him to ashes when he refuses to relent. Later, Shiva revives Nakkeerar, and says that he only wanted to test his knowledge. Nakkeerar asks the king to give the reward to Dharumi. At one stage Dharumi sarcastically tells Nakkeerar that there are poets who make a living by writing poems and there are also poets who make a living by finding fault with poems written by others. I am reminded about this puranic story on reading the long rigmarole written by Jayadevan. He cannot himself do anything constructive, but wastes his time in slinging mud at Suren Surendran and the GTF. GTF has earned the recognition of countries like S.Africa, Switzerland and also the TNA which represents Ceylon Tamils. I also notice the insinuation that “TNA’s M.A. Sumanthiran MP who are either not willing or enjoying the comfort of exclusively dealing with Surendran, without opening the channels to engage with wider Tamil interests.” The TNA is not exclusively dealing with the GTF, it deals with others like the CTC who supports its policies. It cannot support organzations like ICET which openly appealed to the Tamil voters to vote for TNPF at the last elections. My advice to Jayadevan is he should use his talent and writing skills for more worthier cause!

    Did GTF ever spent any funds on projects for the Tamil People’s benefit?
    Can any one enlighten readers on this subject?

    From what i know – Basically a company is set up for personal or profit oriented ventures and Non Profits organizations are set up for doing charity work where monies collected are used for work of the people.

    Hope they could help the people to get back to life after the destructive war that destroyed life of all races.

    Mr. Jayadevan’
    I am a Sinhala Buddhist. We are trying hard to communicate with Tamil leaders to solve our long standing problems and ethnic division. We want to progress as a country of peace and economic prosperity.What do you want our government to do? Don’t you think we have to listen to the TNA which was elected to represent the Tamils, by overwhelming majority? Don’t you think our Foreign Minister should choose whomever he wants to talk about our problems.Who are you? Are you representing the Srilankan Tamils? You are going to great extent to analyse the credentials of GTF. Who are you? What are your credentials(except you are anti-LTTE)?

      Pertinent questions to Jayadevan from a Sinhalese person. Jayadevan appears to be against everyone who the government is talking to resolve this issue at last.

      Does he himself wish to be involved in the talks and, if so what are his credentials?

      My dear Chandrasiri,

      You do not have to listen to anybody, as you are aware what the problems of the Tamils are and rectify them without the Tamils asking or begging. Please think carefully, sincerely and genuinely. The reason for the war and the young Tamil generation taking up to arms was due to the failure of the successful governments to fulfill the genuine demands of the Tamil people. How many pacts signed by the Tamil leaders and Sinhalese leaders were abrogated by the Sinhalese regimes. I do not in any way justify the killings on both sides but those killings were the responsibility of governments. When you have a notion that the Tamil race are second class citizens in Sri Lanka then you will treat them as such.That notion should stop in the hearts and minds of the Sinhalese people. The war ended,hundreds of thousands of people perished, and now the government wants reconciliation. What should it do? Keep 125,000 army personnel in the North, do not resettle those people who were bombarded and chased away from their legitimate lands and occupied by the army. The army building hotels in their lands and venturing in cultivation and selling the produce to the Tamil people. About 250 political prisoners still lingering in prisons and doesn’t want to release them whereas the army who murdered the surrendered fighters and who raped the females and shot them and burnt them to ashes are still free I would not blame the soldiers but the Sinhalese leaders who ordered such acts.There are so many grievances among the Tamil people which the government could easily rectify them, if willing. Then there will be unity, peace and tranquility in the land.

      he wants to be Nelson Mandela. Many of those prisoners to be released shortly would join hands with him.

      Cameron replied to his single letter without anyone’s association- that itself is an achievement without the collective.

      UK is the land to be or not be where everyone has a say.

      If there are no politicians there won’t be refugees. All wars are economic in nature.

      He thinks the priest does not know drugs that started the money laundering.UK cleaned some of it but Lanka has not and still employs a money laundering big chief central banker who worked for the Chinese owned bank HSBC.

      Chandrasri,

      A small, but ignificant correction with regard to Rajasingham’s alliance, if I may.

      “You were an LTTE. That was until LTTE thought it fit to kick you out. And then, more than anything else, you became an anti-LTTE! What exactly does that say about you?!”

        Kumar R.

        You have not answered the question in the Raviraj murder column in the CT about the kidnap of Mathivathani for the forceful marriage to Pirabakaran when she was on hunger strike in the Jaffna Uni. Who did it? To respond to this is rocket science for your wealth of knowledge and experience of yours of the LTTE.

      Chandrasri

      “We are trying hard to communicate with Tamil leaders to solve our long standing problems and ethnic division.”

      Please let us know as to what measures you have effectively taken to communicate/solve problems?

      Have you identified as to what caused the division and problems in the first place?

      “We want to progress as a country of peace and economic prosperity.”

      I think its a good idea.

      However how do you propose to achieve prosperity when the island is being ruled by thieves, criminals, cheats, war criminals, rapists, drug dealers, racists, bigots, corrupt officials, brutal police force, while the constitution is biased against all other minority religion?

      The irony is that the constitution provides powers to the crooks in order for them to protect Buddhism.

      How do you propose to deal with smart ass patriots such as Dayan, Gunadasa, Nalin, Dhinesh, Wimal, Somawansa, Fonseka, Gnanasara, Sajith, Champika, …… the Sanghas, proud Southerners, ….. ?

      “What do you want our government to do? “

      What does the government want to do?

      “Don’t you think we have to listen to the TNA which was elected to represent the Tamils, by overwhelming majority?”

      That is the very reason the Sri Lankan state and government are dragging their feet on and determined to not find any meaningful settlement. The idea is to undermine TNA’s standing among Tamils, exhaust them with endless if and buts, frustrate the minorities and their legitimate representatives, ….. end of the process blame the minorities for not cooperating with the government, …………..

      “Don’t you think our Foreign Minister should choose whomever he wants to talk about our problems”

      He can and should talk to whomsoever willing to hear him as they have done in the past 80 or 90 years.

      “Who are you? What are your credentials(except you are anti-LTTE)?”

      He used to be one of VP’s active b***s carrier until he fell out of favour with LTTE. He is a prosperous Kovil Mudalali.

    Whoever belongs to whom , which or where, the name of the unfortunate Tamils are being used by unscrupulous so called Tamils leaders in various ways. The main achievement in the past 10 years or more by Tamil party organizers here and abroad has been the legitimization of self interest and not the interest of the Tamil speaking people of the North and East. Whether it is the TNA or any other party in Sri Lanka or global Tamil forum or any other organisation in the Diaspora are sharks with self motivated interests and not the interests of the Tamil people.But they speak fluent nice words in support of the aggrieved Tamil people. I do not know what explanation I could envisage for this tragedy as I find the Tamil political leaders then and now have failed miserably in solving the Tamil problems. The LTTE brought more disaster to the Tamil people without any wisdom of political will and had worsen the situation- Sometimes I ponder, whether the reason lies on the origins of our Tamil race in Sri Lanka. one example I could visualize is that in the 1950s and 1970s the number of people I could see everyday at the District Court of Jaffna for litigation of lands, land boundaries, Thoovai, approach to water rights and so many other litigation on which they spent lots of money and time. There was jealousy, enmity. hatred and unique scorn among Tamil people and even within relatives. That situation continues now in a different way.

    As the name GTF says it is for all Tamils in the whole world. The question is out of all global Tamils what percentage is Sri Lankan Tamils? .01%? .001% or .0001%?
    How much participation does the 99% non-Sri Lankan Tamils have in this?
    This GTF is a ploy to mislead the Western gov. and their corrupt politicians to believe that the world’s Tamils are with the separatist Tamils of SL.

          “Even most Tamils in SL do not want to separate”

          I can tell in the 1970’s and 80’s most Tamils did want to separate! The 1977 election was a sort of a referendum for separation, and TULF asked the people to use it as a referendum and those who vote for the TULF is voting because they want to separate. The TULF won overwhelmingly in the N&E.

          The situation may be different now after losing the war and experiencing the destruction.

    Well analysed article, but there are few lines to be said;

    To be frank, Fr Emmanual depends on Suren Surendran for the post as the President of the GTF.

    For this reason, Fr Emmanual doesn’t mind whatever Suren Surendran does with the GTF.

    Fr Emmanual’s worry is about life time Presidency of the GTF.

    Presently Eelam activists have abandoned Fr Emmanual due to his fraudulent activities.

    As soon as Sirisena became the President, Emmanual met him in London.

    But it took about nine months for Fr Emmanual to acknowledge this in public.

    Why he was hiding about this meeting to the diaspora?

    This unanswered question remains in the minds of Eelamists.

    Every time Jayadevan writes in this column he always criticizes some Tamil group or other. His main motive is to split the Tamils. I have never heard him write about the problems of Tamils who are affected by 25 years of war.Almost one generation has been wiped out.What is Jayadevan doing for the welfare of Tamil victims. By bad mouthing TNA and GTF can Tamils regain their lives? Who is paying you to write this Jayadevan?

    The issues affecting SL Tamils are best addressed by them, not by non-resident Tamils. I believe there are plenty of well-informed and articulate Tamils in Sri Lanka to speak on their behalf – both within SL and in the international arenas.

    There’s a saying that sometimes “those who start by doing good, end up doing well” – that’s when the objective of helping the disenfranchised get thrown out the door.

    It seems that this has happened in several diaspora organizations. It’s due to greed – an unfortunate, but natural progression for collectors of other people’s money.

    To All commenters

    Sadly, only one person has responded to the revelations in the article about the GTF so far.

    The article reveals facts that we did not know so far.

    If the Limited Guarantee Company is the structure of GTF of Suren Surendran and Fr Emanual as proved to be with its financial transactions filed, what are the positions of Suren Surendran and Fr Emanual in the company. Are they paid employees as Spokesman for the GTF and the President?

    In what way this GTF Ltd is connected to Suren Surendran and Fr Emanual? Is there another unregistered GTF functioning devoid of the GTF Ltd.

    With the legal registration of the Global Tamil Forum Ltd anyone else using the name is subject to legal challenge. Will the Global Tamil Forum Ltd make a public statement about this article if they disown Suren Surendran and Fr Emanual in the conduct of their business under GTF or its long name that contradicts with their objective of running a business?

      However any one can search companies house and get information about any limited or public limited companies by paying a fee.
      You don’t need to be smart arse.
      Why didn’t Jeyadeavn get the annual returns filed by the limited company and post it on CT.
      That will answer all of your questions.

      From may aticle: ‘Many cheers to the few hand counts for reflecting their historical personal hate in anonymity towards me. This is something I am prone to since my release from captivity from the LTTE in Vanni in 2005.

      Why don’t you unmask and put a write up in the CT with specific instances and evidences of how and how much I stolen from the temple at any time.

Their facelessness in their harpings gives the flavour of ever progressing malady that needs to be banished with responsible debates. Whilst giving a gentle pat for the few historical hate promoters for their time and effort to gory spin anything I write, I wish their spineless hidebound hate will find its way out soon’.

      Please read my comment to Jim Softy above and you both have to unmask
      unmask yourselves and experience the taste of the British justice if are willing to stand by what you have stated.

      Then be prepared to experience the taste of British justice that one had already experienced.

      ‘Instead of criticizing others do something for your Tamil brothers in SriLanka’. What I am doing for my brothers is a matter for me and my dear ones. I shall do it the way I am doing without seeking any publicity.

      Respond to the specific issues raised in the article without revealing your enmity in anonymity on anything I write.

      It is not the Non Resident Indian of Uk, it is the BJP friends of UK organising the mass event for Prime Minister Modi.

        “It is not the Non Resident Indian of Uk, it is the BJP friends of UK organising the mass event for Prime Minister Modi.“

        2 years before Modi was elected PM there were hardly 3 members of BJP friends of UK. babuva hindi bolo- ltte wag, do you speak bihari??

        It is just another Bollywood stunt of Hindians to gain importance in the UK and worldwide because Asian today means all jihadist.

    Rajsingham,

    You are just hiding your shame and incompetence accusing the now long-lost LTTE as still hounding you. I doubt if any of the responses that challenged you in your last article had anything to do with LTTE. It is to get some sympathy-support that you at every turn sob about your getting kicked out of LTTE.

    You champion transparency in these columns. And you are complementary, or in fact you glorify a new group, now that none of TNA, BTF, GTF, LTTE or any other Diaspora group will accommodate you. In the last article you suggested that you were enamored by the leading voices of this uniquely smart Non-resident Tamils of something or other.

    But when asked whether your comments were as an observer, or if you are yourself port of the group, you go mute. When asked if you can identify the “leading voices” you refer to so that at least the British Diaspora can get some common understanding as to the credibility of these “leading voices”, you creep back deep into darkness. In the current article, surprisingly, or perhaps only because of those “unanswerable” questions, you shied away from mentioning that group! I am sure that group thanks you for that.

    So what exactly do you mean when you champion “transparency” – is it just for all others, and not for you? If you are so against anonymity, then why not identify the leading voices? If those leading voices want to remain anonymous, shouldn’t you refrain from being their spokes person, given your seething disapproval of anonymity?

    Be objective instead of relentlessly castigating every group that refuses to accommodate you! There must be a good reason why all – LTTE, TNA, BTF, GTF, what have you, do not want to include you! Did you ever think of that?!

      Rajasingham,

      Having championed “transparency,” your hiding under diversionary tactics (blaming LTTE), unable to address why you are not transparent is pure deceit! Having expressed disdain at anonymity, then turning around and becoming the trumpet-blower for unnamed “leading voices” amounts to bigotry!

      The remedy is forthrightness and sincerity – not sanctimony.

      Instead, you resort to clandestinely mobilizing toothless street-dogs (in anonymity, at that!) thinking they are Rottweiler’s?

      How imbecilic can one get?!
