Immediately Detain Sri Lanka’s National Intelligence Chief: Diaspora Tamils Tell Swiss Authorities

Tamil Diaspora organisations have today called on the Swiss authorities to immediately detain and prevent Director of Sri Lanka’s Centre for National Intelligence, Sisira Mendis from leaving Switzerland until there is a thorough investigation into the serious charges of torture against him.

Sisira Mendis

Sisira Mendis

Sisira Mendis is currently in Geneva as part of a delegation to defend the government of Sri Lanka’s adherence to the Convention Against Torture before the UN Committee Against Torture.

“According to the report of the UN’s OHCHR Investigation on Sri Lanka, Mr. Mendis had command responsibility over police units known to routinely practice torture during the final period of the Sri Lankan civil war.” the BTF said in a statement.

“While USTPAC and BTF are encouraged by the government of Sri Lanka’s decision to engage the UN Committee Against Torture, we are dismayed that Mr. Mendis represents the government before the very UN Committee charged with ensuring governments stop torture,” Dr. Karunyan Arulanantham, President of US Tamil Political Action Council (USTPAC), said. “His attendance in Geneva deeply disrespects Sri Lanka’s torture victims and mocks the esteemed work of the Committee Against Torture.” he said.

Mendis served as Deputy Inspector General of the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) and was also responsible for the Terrorism Investigation Division (TID) from March 2008 to June 2009. Both organizations are known for their routine use of torture.

“…[Mendis’] attendance in Geneva deeply disrespects Sri Lanka’s torture victims and mocks the esteemed work of the Committee Against Torture”. On the basis of universal jurisdiction, Dr. Karunyan Arulanantham added, “we call on the Swiss authorities to immediately detain and prevent Mr. Mendis from leaving Switzerland until there is a thorough investigation into the serious charges of torture against him.”

“The government’s brazen decision to send a known torturer to Geneva is a particularly egregious example of the culture of impunity that stubbornly persists in Sri Lanka. We strongly endorse the High Commissioner for Human Rights’ recommendation in September 2015 to establish a hybrid court for Sri Lanka with international judges, prosecutors, lawyers and investigators,” said Ravi Kumar, General Secretary of the British Tamils Forum (BTF). “Mr. Mendis’ participation in Sri Lanka’s torture review, and indeed the fact that he is now Director for National Intelligence, demonstrate that an internationalized court is needed now more than ever.” the BTF said.

      Expect more noise from BTF, GTF, Transexual Tamil Govt of Peelam and other pro LTTE terorist fronts since they backed their one-legged horse Hilary, who lost as badly as they did.Hilary, Samantha Power, Camel jockey (Prince Rizad or whoever the head of UNHRC) are destined to the dustbin under Trump.There will not be any threats from US for Sri Lanka. Time for reasonable Tamils in Sri Lanka to come forward with their suggestions to form a society free and fair for all. Mr Mendis has diplomatic staus and cannot be held by Swiss authorities.

      Dear Dr. Arulanantham and Mr. Kumar where were you when the Tamil armed groups were mercilessly gunned down each other group members; and assassinating political leaders and intellectuals far more than any other terrorist groups in the world? You blindly support foreign powers and do dirty politics for your own benefits and perks. That is why Tamils have nothing after thirty years of brutal war.

      You have eliminated your own leaders and intellectuals more than any other race in Asia. That is why I call you as the most dangerous creatures of Asia. Therefore, I have urged the Sinhalese leaders and the other Asian leaders to watch your moves very carefully; because, you have the ability to destroy Sri Lanka and South Asia, as you have done for the last three decades. The West has an intention to use you to dominate Indian Ocean and South Asia; as it has been using the Jews to dominate the Middle East.

      Do you feel any remorse whatsoever for your evil acts during the brutal civil war for more than three decades? Do you see evolution among yourselves who assassinated far more leaders and intellectuals than any other terrorist organization in the world? The answer is no. You are still under the firm grip of the foreign powers which transformed young Tamils as ruthless terrorists in the world. You are not smart enough to find a solution. Therefore, you won’t find a solution.

      It doesn’t matter whether you cry to Indians or to the Westerners; nothing will change. You will get zero answer; if you multiply anything by zero. Likewise, Tamils will get zero results, if they continue to keep you as their leaders. Tamils won’t go anywhere by avoiding smart Tamils; they will continue to go backward. Tamils have achieved nothing by conducting the Asia’s longest brutal civil war for three decades with the help of the foreign powers. Tamil leaders don’t learn, but blindly follow the foreign powers. Therefore, Tamil leaders need to be watched and guided carefully.

    Working with the UN is a joke – a smoke screen and spin for the International Community to consume.

    Impunity and immunity for war crimes and financial crimes for criminal and corrupt politicians and their cronies is rampant in Sri Lanka today, and growing with hate speech and financial crime proliferating under the Ranil-Sira Jarapalanaya govt..

    Not a single criminal politician has been charged and jailed for war crimes or financial crimes.

    The international Community is also going along with the GoSL charade and turning a blind eye given much tougher situations elsewhere!

      AND where were you in July 1983 when that evil scoundrel Mathew ran amok? Were you his ath-udaw’wa?

      It was the egregious element of our Sinhalese community who in the years 1950 to 1978 created Prabhakaran. What you sow is what you reap.

    For almost 30 odd years Diaspora funded LTTE goons to torture Sri Lankans – now these same Diaspora guys demanding to take action against the Senior security officers who worked diligently to save many Lankan lives from Brutal terrorist attacks – what joke ?? We should demand UN to take immediate action against these terrorist supports who are responsible for many Sri Lankan lives lost during last few decades due to LTTE atrocities – Mr Mendis is a honest ,efficient officer with an unblemished record and diligently worked to save the nation from brutal LTTE terrorist attacks – we Sri Lankans respect him and demand the Gov. to take immediate steps to ensure the safety of Mr. Mendis

They physically killed many thousands of young ,old ,men and women and mentally killed many many thousands related to the killed ones – We know who supplied information to UN reports – Let’s stop arguing about it

          Rabok,
          In 90s , many Sinhalese leaders were killed using bombs placed in public places in Colombo. Had your honest, intelligent intelligence offices found conclusive evidence of any of these murders? Rumors said, lot of political leaders and even businessmen whose names started with ‘W’ or ‘V’ (in Premadasa time) were killed by Snhalese Gov supreme leader and credited to LLTE account. (Malayalam fortune tellers advice? ) Where were those honest intelligence offices at that time?
          Rajiv Gandhi was killed in similar pattern and Indian intelligence offices unearth all evidence , caught all directly relavent people in India and proved it in courts within 2 years. Has that ever happened in SL? Do we really have honest, intelligent intelligence officers in SL?

        My Dear BBS – You are reading the history of Tamil terrorism wrong
        The first seeds of Tamil terrorism was swan by Senior Chelvanayagum
        He was a violent radical orator who could not tolerate his party (Tamil Congress) leader GG Ponnambalam’s less violent political views – GGP maintain very cordial relationship with Sinhalese Politicians – Chelva always used to paint Sinhalese in the south as enemies of Tamils and rouse them to do things like painting black on “Sri” on CTB buses running in Jaffna – and organized Sathyagrha campaigns in front of Gov. Agent office in Jaffna – Both Bandaranayke and Dudley tried their best to develop a working relationship with Chelva but could not acheive, due to pressure exerted by Sinhale extremist – Tamil Politicians who came to power after Chelva – conveniently used Tamil nationalism as a tool to increase their voter base – So it is not only Buddhist extremist but Tamil extremist also

      Rabok, they ask you the same questions about Sinhala state terrorism which preceded the birth of LTTE. Remember, it’s sinhala state terrorism that created this resentful diaspora community by looting, raping, massacring and displacing them. They experienced firsthand what sinhala terrorists were capable of and they felt the responsibility to provide means for their brethren back home have an effective self-defense against a terrorist state armed with the might of modern weaponry. It’s a well-recorded fact the state did not only fail to provide protection for Tamils in the several recurring anti-Tamil pogroms but was actively complicit in them. By the way, your military men are genocidal war criminals, sexual predators and necrophiliacs. There is no heroism in bombing your own citizens by the thousands; raping and mutilating surrendered unarmed girls; executing a harmless child just because you didn’t like his father.

      There was no just cause to your war; it was was a pure genocidal imperialist aggression from the outset. If you valued human life so much like true Buddhists would you would have respected Tamil aspiration for political self-determination but for you forced territorial unity mattered more for which you were willing to pay with the slaughter of Tamils on a genocidal proportion.
      The Tamils have only replaced White colonialism (which was much more civilized) for a barbaric Brown colonialism of the so-called people of the lion who are as bloodthirsty as the marauding lion with a sword representing them.

          Irrespective of race, religion or region innocent people had been killed by armed forces, JVP and Home guards, etc through out the island since 5th April 1971.

          Who did fund them? Pick one most appropriate answer:

          The state (taxes levied from people Sinhalese, Muslims and Tamils, additional fund raising)

          Foreign aid/grant (funded by Hindia and foreigners)

          Loans from Hindia and other countries (repayable by Sri Lankans)

          The actual physical war against people started on 5th April 1971, there is no end in sight.

    If Tamil Diaspora is not interested in reconciliation and harping on action against armed forces personnel, The Government should also look into excesses of former LTTE leaders and cadres rehabilitated and released to the society. Some LTTE leaders who are among the living, were accused of mass murders, fund raising and procuring arms for terrorist activities, abduction of under-aged children for recruiting them for the war effort, bombing places of worship and passenger vehicles etc. Gayan

      Gayan, if any living LTTE members are guilty of war crimes they too should be investigated for war crimes I don’t think anyone disagrees with that at all.

      It seems that some people have a twisted logic in their heads that all the good done by some of these people accused of war crimes makes it ok for them to have committed a few crimes!!

      A crime is a crime. LTTE or Army they should be investigated and punished so that we can stop tarnishing the names and hard work of our true war heroes who did not try to take the easy way out.

    Dear participants,
    This is a sad situation for Sri Lanka and it is bad for the Country to let this kind of situation being seen by all around the world. Bad politics is continued despite Sri Lanka being on spotlight on the process of reconciliation. The extreme incidence of racism, absence of prompt action against racism in public, and lakh of local Legislation to stamp out racism is not seen in Sri Lanka. Instead all we see is nothing but racism. It is also very obvious the present Government allowing these to happen with impunity but talking in favor of reconciliation!
    Here in the forums it appears Sri Lanka has all the reasons to go for an International Inquiry, but it is a mistake Sri Lanka has made by refusing for an International Inquiry. If Sri Lanka accepts the world norms and go for the Inquiry, things would have been a lot better for stopping racism and reigning in the urgently required reconciliation and Prosperity.

    God what monsters has our county produced!!?

    It is shocking this government too is still unable to do anything about this…

    Buddhism in Sri Lanka has been systematically destroyed by monks and corrupt politicians who have turned Buddhism into a tool to exploit the people!

    The continued use of this methodology to exploit the people has contributed to this behavior by the state!

    While this exploitation is turning the Sinhalese into Nagas and Yakkas (Snakes and Devils) taking them far away from the teachings of the Buddha. This is what they have done for the Sinhalese people under the guise of protecting and elevating the Sinhalese culture they are sending the Sinhalese people down a path of regression.

    Look at the heartless monsters this exploitation of these people has turned them into!

    By doing so they created the ideal conditions to plunder the nation.

    There was no love of state or the Sinhalese culture. It was self preservation all the way even at the cost of destroying the Sinhalese culture and setting it on a regressive path.

    Will this government and future government continue down this path or put an end to it!?

    Those who defend these wrong doers who are setting our nation down a regressive path are contributing to the destruction of our beautiful nation and tarnishing the names and hard work put in by those who seek to uplift our nation.

    I am puzzled. If there were an international conference on, say, banking, wouldn’t we send our best banker?

    Similarly, for a conference on torture, we sent our best torturer!

      Torture isn’t a pleasant word but unfortunately it has come to live with us.

      Investigators use torture as a tool to expedite investigations and catch the culprits.
      Humane and lawful way of investigating is time consuming; I think that’s one of the reasons to use torture as an accepted tool.

      Almost all the countries in the world use torture though officially denounce it.

      Even the CIA is blamed for using torture.

      Your comment “we sent our best torturer” hasn’t been proved.

      Isn’t terrorism a torture for peace loving people?

      It’s terrorism that has given recognition for torture as a tool of investigation.

    Why do you waste time to investigate former LTTE leaders/caders to ascertain the the crimes they were involved in. There are enough evidence against living members. Look at a few of those.

    Torture in(police)custody is everywhere (where social conflicts are taking place).

    CIA also has been charged for torture.

    So international attention should be given to the subject and steps be taken for proper torture management as culprits don’t come out with facts without some torture mainly because there’re supported by sympathizers.

    Another futile statement made by now irrelevant diaspora. Simply Swiss government has no authority to detain a foreign delegate to a UN meeting. They simply have diplomatic status for the duration of the event.
    Now my question is to Hon. Samaraweera…Did you really think that you have tamed the tiger?

    Stop the vengence and talk sense. When will we ever get the vengence out of our systems or will we take it to our graves????????????????

    “Do you know bloody state terrorist raped,tortured, killed hundreds of thousands of Tamils including women and children from 1956 and continuing still,says UN…..Raja”
    Yes Raja… What the UN does not want to know was Own goals scored by tamils on tamils) how many Tamils were cold bloodedly killed by THAMBI begining with Alfred Duraiappa in the 70s. Uma Maheshwaran…
    Amirthalingam, Yogeshwaran were killed because they assisted in promulgating the Vadukoddai Declaration in 1976?
    Neelan thamby and Ranjan aiya died invain. Diaspora money was more powerful and important?

    What is a lesser crime. Rape or slitting the bellies of expectant mothers, pulling the unborn out and chopping the necks off unborn children?
    FOR SUCH CRIMES, WHO EVER FUNDED THE LTTE UNTOLD RETRIBUTION IS ON THE WAY. NO AMOUNT OF MONEY CAN PREVENT.

    Now there is no Catholism in the North as S.J.Emmanuel the Theologian adviser to the Bishops Conference in Asia had once stated that he had no meaning to Bread & wine consecrated at holy Mass to be that of Jesus Christ and Prabakaran was infact like Jesus Christ.
