Mohan Pieris Accuses UNHRC In Geneva Of Being Tool For ‘Vanquished Terrorists’; Suffers Rebuke From UN Secretary General

Disgraced former Chief Justice and Nandasena Gotabaya Rajapaksa’s envoy to the United Nations in New York Mohan Pieris embarrassed himself and the Government of Sri Lanka in his very first address to the UN General Assembly on Thursday (28), accusing the Human Rights Council in Geneva of being a tool of terrorists.

Mohan Pieris

With the whole world in the chamber, Pieris also accused UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Michele Bachelet of engaging in an “exercise” in regime change in Sri Lanka, in her latest report to the Human Rights Council, which was a damning assessment of the Nandasena Regime’s human rights trajectory.

The exercise was an attempt to score points with his masters in Colombo sources told Colombo Telegraph.

The humiliating incident occurred as the UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres presented his annual report to the UN General Assembly that did not specifically mention Sri Lanka. However during an informal interactive session soon after the Guterres’ address, Sri Lanka’s Permanent Representative to the UN in New York Mohan Pieris thought it fit to question the motives of the UN Secretary General and the UN system with regard to its concerns on human rights in Sri Lanka.

“I was fascinated with the theme that we must make it happen together, which was perhaps said a countless number of times during your presentation.

But Sri Lanka has a problem. We are made to feel we are not in it together. It’s 12 years since the end of the conflict and we have come a long way from those times. The temperature in the country is very low now. It is peaceful. But it appears that the global temperature for Sri Lanka, particularly in the Human Rights Council has been maintained at an all time high and that’s regrettable.”

Mohan Pieris who has a dubious record as a gross human rights violator during his tenure on the bench added “It appears today that the vanquished…it appears that terrorist groups and terrorism is making use of very civilised mechanisms to unleash a different kind of terrorism. To walk themselves into the very mechanism that protect a civilised world.”

“Should our mandates extend to interfering with local processes such as perhaps an exercise in a change of regime which is being critiqued in a recent report form the human rights council,” the Sri Lankan Envoy continued.

Pieris’ decision to equate the Office of the Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR), victim groups and human rights organisations as tools of “vanquished terrorists” invoked a strong response from Secretary General Guterres who decided to use the opportunity to school the former “Chief Justice” in the UN’s commitment to truth, justice and reconciliation. The Secretary General told Pieris that the involvement of others would be drastically reduced if the Sri Lankan Government takes reconciliation and justice seriously.

“It is important to recognise that in today’s world there is a growing concern and interest including international institutes from the human rights and legal dimensions on post conflict situations, mainly reconciliation and accountability. I hope that all the interventions that are taking place at present will help the process of effective reconciliation and effective accountability. ..a country has to heal its wounds. Truth is essential for this and without truth and reconciliation it is impossible to move forward. ..Accountability is an important instrument in that regard. I can only hope that the Sri Lankan people and the Sri Lankan government will take seriously these two needs, reconciliation and accountability and reduce the interest of other entities to be also directly involved,” the Secretary General of the United Nations said.

Antonio Guterres is a former prime minister of Portugal and served as the UN High Commsioner for Refugees prior to being elected as the UN SG. He was an activist against the Portuguese dictatorship until 1974.

Mohan Pieris on the other had is a disgraced Chief Justice who in 2013 entered to through the ‘exit’ with a large contingent of military personnel to be placed as Chief Justice after the flawed impeachment of Chief Justice Shirani Bandaranayake.

While Pieris was ‘CJ’ he informed the UN Committee on Torture that journalist Prageeth Ekneligoda was comfortably and safely living in a certain country; and when called upon by a court of law to disclose which country that was, replied that “only god knows”. Presiding over a torture and custodial death case as “Chief Justice” Pieris once proclaimed from the bench that terror suspects have no human rights after the custodial death of PTA prisoner Ganesan Nimalaruban, who died in police custody under torture. Nimalaruban was not charged for a crime at the time of his death. Nimalaruban’s parents had filed the fundamental rights petition that came before Peiris.

Prior to being elevated to the position of CJ Peiris was Chairman of the Seylan Bank, Director of Lanka Logistics (the arms purchasing unit of the Ministry of Defence), Director of Rakna Lanka Security (a security company established by then Defence Secretary Nandasena Gotabaya Rajapaksa), Legal Adviser in the Ministry of Defence and Attorney General.

Through Mohan Peris the Sri Lankan government has framed its human rights issues as an extension of the war on terror and repeatedly eluded that those raising concerns on human rights, including the High Commissioner of Human Rights Michelle Bachelet, activists victims and all others as terrorists.

In the past Sri Lanka has been successful in keeping its human rights war crimes related issues out of the agenda in New York. Mohan Pieris on his own volition, without reason or provocation has raised Sri Lanka’s human rights issues at the UNGA. A senior career diplomat quipped that Pieris’s desire to please his political masters and get a sound bite into local media has now not only highlighted Sri Lanka at the UNGA but ensured a strong and embarrassing rebuttal by the Secretary General himself.

Peiris’ irrational intervention before the General Assembly comes as the Tamil human rights lobby ups the ante on calls to move the Sri Lanka issue from Geneva to New York, which is the home of not only the UNGA but also the Security Council. The Sri Lankan Envoy’s idiotic submissions following a damning report by Bachelet, who urged member states of the Human Rights Council to consider the option of referring Sri Lanka to the International Criminal Court in The Hague, because the conduct of the Sri Lankan government had proved it was unwilling to seek justice for atrocities committed during the war. The Security Council of the UN, which meets in New York, must refer a country to the ICC for prosecutions to take place.

Prominent Tamil academic Dr K. Guruparan called for the Sri Lanka issue to be moved from the UN in Geneva to the UN in New York. Guruparan said in his tweet “There should be NO negotiation  with Sri Lanka about a consensus resolution. Sri Lanka will whittle it down to the bare minimum and then refuse to co-sponsor. As the Tamil side has repeatedly said move it from Geneva to New York”. (By Chinthika De Silva

    Not Ranjana Ramanayaka but this man Mohan Peris should have been jailed years ago for all the high crimes he deliberately committed during his tenure as CJ.
    .
    There are enough evidence to prove that RR is thousand times innocient regarding the charges levels at him, if yes, not even a jail session not more than a 3-month period .. would have been sufficient.

    Now entire world would have enough evidence, if they would please act against Rajaakshes sooner than later.

      All you got to do is , an easy thing ! Just try to change your glasses
      and you will look at a New Srilanka , a Srilanka that is now
      Developed into a Prison Cell ! Meaning , All the Culprits are in the
      Open and the Saints have Locked themselves in ! That makes
      sense ? It should I believe ! That is exactly what is happening
      every minute right at the moment ! Look , how many criminals
      have already been released into the open ? Where is this
      Environment protection authority ? What are these opposition
      Alternative or Future Guys are doing ? Waiting for their turn to
      repeat the Circus ? Srilanka is fast becoming a World Rubbish

        Dear LM,
        The righteous voices and the sane and sorted types on the political landscape have never gained traction amongst much of Lankan voters, and so mostly they don’t even get elected. But let’s hope those voices persist until they triumph.
        Need to purge the two oldest generations of politicos still actively engaged in destructive politics. In that regard, the voters who buy into the destructive politics would have to be purged too because I don’t think they can be taught to think differently. How many more decades for such an evolution to happen if it actually would!

          Saddest reality is our average would take that long to sense about anything. They just let their five senses be manipulated easily. Crook politicians approach them through ” sinhala buddhist- PILLs “.
          Whenever you watch Nandasena’s actings of the day, those who voted for him would have to commit suicide as of today. He may feel like a “kattussa wear a gold chain” – being an abcdician to local politics. .. but who does he think he is to go hoodwinking the very same people ?

        Dear Champa,
        .
        I dont think I need to list you the list of high crimes MP is reported to have committed.
        :
        Leaving all the bunch crimes committed after him being appointed as successor CJ after Dr SB was sacked in the backdrop of 18A related stuff, – HOWEVER, Mohan Peris to kneel down before former President (mostly known as Polonnaruwe Donkey) for keeping his position as CJ – remember ? I really don think you are REBORN Champa ?

        High Crimes: Being biased to high crimes is multiple times greater than ” a first degree murder”.
        .
        When – just few days after SIRISENA started with his presdiency
        .
        Where – Presidential house (as President Sirisena repeated to the press)
        .
        Why- the kind of bitch ‘s sons have no shame – even if the NOBLE status of a JUDGE is held above in SL yet today also for SN Silva and almost many judges. RR is very right, majority of JUDGES and Lawyers are highly corrupted, and they would do anything and everything if perks would be their focus.

          why not? Of course, you should list the “high crimes he deliberately committed during his tenure as CJ.”
          Look, now you have changed your wordings to …”high crimes MP is REPORTED TO HAVE committed.”
          Mohan Peiris has nothing to do with Shirani Bandaranayake’s saga.
          Sirisena has a habit of changing his stories and since when the “kneeling down before a President” become a “high crime”?
          As you yourself have proved now, Mohan Peiris has no record of committing any “high crimes” as you alleged in your previous comment.

            We know you are not illierate and have added constructive comments on other topics to CT back and forth.

            Unfortunately, regardin MP, you make you a laughing stock as if you have hidden reasons to defend him. So Please dont be silly to draw quick conclusion sabout what I have never proved… .
            .
            Srilankens are well aware of the records of MOHAN PERIS. The very same people are not overlooked also Rajapakshes crimes. Nevertheless Rajapakshes returned to power by misleading the easy targets ( 70% of srilanken population) and has achieved nothing except they got all their alleged high criminals exonerated from their crime investigations.
            :
            Taiwan and several other like minded ISLAND nations were able to work well on the containment of the virus from its spread, but PATRIOTIC Rajaakshes were able to bowlderise information so that the very same FRACTIONS would be mislead again and again. Less PCR performances held the numbers in favour of Rajaakshe govt, but now it is becoming worst. Those who know the statistics well, they would share the ill performance of GOTABA govt also in that mgt.

        It is purely Champa, your naivete. He was branded Cheap Justice when he begged the President Sirisena to retain his job or appoint him as an Ambassador in a lush land. As Chief Justice he promised to break or bend any rule if and when needed. If you dare to look to your own surprise you will discover enough of high crimes he committed for him to be jailed for the breach the sacred faith and trust given to him by the citizens of the land until he ended his public service as the defacto Cheap Justice.

          How do you know that he has said or done anything like that? Did you see? Did you hear? Or did you verify from the former Chief Justice?
          How do I discover? If you are so sure, why are you hesitant to list the high crimes committed by him?
          Who branded him a cheap justice? He was duly appointed by the then President. If he is a cheap justice, then all the other chief justices appointed by Presidents should be branded as cheap justices, including Mrs. SB.

By the time, presidential nominations were called, GOTABAYA was still an US citizen, nevertheless srilanken judiciary didnot utter a single word. against. That man by name MACO (secret agent of Rajapakshes) was reported to be not mentally ill as news revealed . However, people stay as if they are fed with THANAKOLA yet today in this regard.

      Hi LM, The Chief Justice and the Attorney General have an obligation and a duty to find a way to compensate those innocent souls who are devastated and traumatized by the foul and criminal conduct of Sarath N. Silva and Mohan Pieris while holding the apex office of the Chief Justice for the absolute abuse of power by them by breaching the sacred faith and trust bestowed upon them by the people of Srilanka.

    The true colour of Mohan Pieris has to be divulged to the UN first. The simple and most effective way of doing this is to give a copy of the video where Mohan Pieris asks pardon from the Civilians for his bias wrong decision of pardoning Mahinda Rajapakse in the Tsunami Fund robbery case.

    Credibility of a person who is holding these high positions is crucial if that person’s views are to be considered valuable by any group.

    This must be done.

      Buddhist1: It was not this “Joker” who asked for pardon for not sending Mahinda Rajapakse in the Tsunami Fund case to jail. He was the CJ Sarath N. Silva. The record that must be sent to UN Secretary-General and the General Assembly should be the one Mohan Pieris “Pleaded” with ex-President Sirisena to keep him in the post of CJ, promising to deliver “Judgements” in whatever way the President wants. That is more serious and “Barberic” than what ex CJ Sarath N Silva admitted and claimed pardon from the People. At least Sarath N Silva “Admitted” his “Mistake and “Apologized”, whereas, this Mohan Pieris having desecrated the entire “Justice System” and “Judiciary” get appointed as the “Permanent Representative” to UN and most hilariously speaks of “Reconciliation” and “Justice”. That is the “TYPE” of “Representations” Sri Lanka has placed at World Forums.

That was a well thought out “Mistake” unlike Buddhist1. How many “Professionals” are there in Sri Lanka who could be categorized as real meaning “Professionals? Very FEW. The Public Service, the Legislature, and now the Judiciary are infested with these “Pseudo” Professionals. Did you listen to Mohan Pieris-the Permanent Representative to UN making a maiden speech and receiving a well deserved “Pull-Up”? What a “Miracle of Asia” is Sri Lanka today? Yesterday, Nalaka Godahewa and Bandu Wickrama, another two “Professionals” walked into Colombo Port and received a well deserved “Welcome” hoot” from the employees .

        Dear Simon,
        .
        Agree with you. If SRILANKEN judiciary treated SN SILVA to the very same manner our RanjanRamanayaka is currently going through, things would have changed tremeodously for the benefit of masses in this country.

        If SN Silva and real criminals in active politics were charged, Ranjan Ramanayake woudl not have repeated that over 95% of judges and lawyers in this country are highly corrupted. Now those blue flies on excreta go on saying, that the numbers RR added are the problems here. We all know RR s imprisonment is number one revengeful act.

        And further to this, WANATHAMULLA Kunukanda (garbage dumps) should further be existent so that the criminal politicians and their backlickers could make their profits.

        Mohan Pieris is the scumbag who asked the Prez Sirisena in 2015 to keep him on as CJ after he was declared not correctly appointed to that post, by promising him that he is prepared to give any verdict as directed by Sirisena. The lowest level of shamelessness.

But the spirit of the message stands strong as the quality of Mohan Pieris is also similar to Sarath Silva as you too went to the President and wanted to continue as the CJ and you promised to give decisions in line with Presiden’s wants. At least Sarath Silva asked the pardon from the people and you have not. Your crime is worst than the other.

      The Government should divulge the true colors of Tamil Diaspora and Koti Diaspora to UN who fabricate war crimes and human rights violation charges against the Government of Sri Lanka and SL Armed Forces to take revenge for defeating LTTE Tamil terrorists.
      These are the guys who extorted money from Demalu who moved to Greener Pastures as economic refugees, raised money from drug and human trafficking, money laundering and credit card scams and used that money to buy arms and ammunition to slaughter Sinhalayo using suicide bombers, claymore bombs and chemical weapons for three decades.

        Eagle Eye,
        I do not agree with you. No one is talking about the LTTE soldiers who were killed during the war. Most of the demands are for killing those who surrendered and captured during the war and who were alive after the war ended. There are ample proof that there were killings, videos of killing Isai Priya and Prabaharan’s young son are examples. These were army soldiers videos of illegal executions. Why not the Govt conduct an independent inquiry into these? How can any one deny that such things did not happen. You for one if you deny then you must be blind.

    For the past 70 years, Tamils were cheated by Buddhist Sinhala regimes. Buddhist Sinhala Fundamentalist regimes continue to play hide and seek game not only with Tamils but also with Regional and International powers. The regional and international players also try to play hide and seek game with Tamil issues to get their benefits. It is time for all the Tamils around the world unite together to make sure that both International players and Buddhist Sinhala Fundamentalists do not play game to continue with genocide of Tamils.United Nations should ensure Tamils are safe in their homeland and their self-determination rights.
    We now understand that Rajapakse regime is planning to cheat both Sinhalese and international community. They are making big noise for Sinhalese that International community is against Srilanka. In the same time they are trying to convince the international community and India by giving the Colombo harbour east to India and they will allow muslims to bury the Corona dead bodies and appoint a commission to see whether military violated human rights.

          As proved today with Wigneswaran’s and previously Prabhakaran’s false Tamil homeland claims, I salute the wisdom of our Sinhalese politicians who drafted our first Constitution.
          Yes, we had ONLY Sinhala rulers in the past and we should ONLY have Sinhala rulers in the future too. If you want to know why, go to Tamil Nadu and ask them why they have ONLY Tamil rulers there.

            Buddhism and true Buddhists are great gift to world but not to Sri Lanka.
            Are you sure that your brain is in order. Don’t forget it is SWRD who proposed federalism accepting the home land for Tamils. Further Banda-Chelva and Dudley Chelva Pact, Vitharana proposal, Chandrika proposal and Oslo accord agree with Tamil homeland. If you don’t know the history, refer about Jaffna Kingdom. There is a period before LTTE and Wigneswaran. Current Tamil Nadu is not a separate country. Don’t you know that. This clearly proves that you are Buddhist Sinhala Fundamentalist follower.

              Ajith,

              SWRD certainly proposed federalism. But this man had no mandate to propose this. Even the others who proposed similar pacts had to withdraw because they knew politically they would be finished if they had gone ahead. The Oslo accord did propose federalism but it was only to the North. Now you Tamils are now satisfied with North alone anyway. You talk of jaffna Kingdom, it existed for about 300 yrs only. Most of the times there power did not extend beyond Jaffna Peninsula. Tamil Nadu, Karnataka , Adhra etc were independent countries that came together to form India. Your history in Sinhale as rulers are restricted to a small part of the county for a short time only.

              If you think a part of the country belongs to you demalu, pls take it up with the international community and get it recognised. Why have you failed ? You and I both know the answer.

                We do not need fake history , views and advise from a so called Chingkallam , whose low caste ancestors only arrived from South India a few centuries , during the Portuguese and Dutch colonial era as indentured slaves. Now changed their language and religion and have become the biggest so called Chinngkalla Aryan( He he ) Poutha racist kurangus. You are one of them and so are half the so called present day Chingkallams . Ancestors migrated from South India as slaves and now beating the Anti Thamizh drum and giving themselves airs. The Jaffna kingdom existed long before your ancestors and the ancestors of half the Chingkallams arrived in the island. At that time your ancestors were living in some low caste or untouchable kuppam in Thamizh Nadu or Kerala .

                  The Kingdom of Jaffna officially became independence in the 12 Th century Prior to that it was a vassal state of the Thamizh Pandian kingdom and when the Pandian kingdom fell it became independent and powerful and the Arya Chackravarthi dynasty was established. The Jaffna kingdom was not just the Jaffna peninsular. It was the entire northern province and the present north western Puttalam and Chilaw and Negombo areas. This is why even now when you visit these areas , you can immediately see these areas were recently Thamizh. The place names , people everything about these areas reeks of Thamizh. In the east the Trincomalee district was part of Jaffna kingdom proper and the Thamizh Vannimai chiefdomsof Batticaloa , were vassal states of the Jaffna kingdom and were paying tribute. It is only after the fall of the Jaffna kingdom , that most of the east with no one to protect started to come under the Thamizh /Chingkalla kings of Kandy . They asked for his protection. So did most of the North Western areas. The Puttalam/Chilaw area was called Thamizh provinces. These areas did not remain long under the Kandyan kingdom , the Portuguese and Dutch soon captures these Thamizh areas and they were merged back again with the other Thamizh areas as a separate colony. The Chingkalla coastal areas further south were a separate colony.

        There are only two ethnicities in the island Jadam. Sinhalese and Tamil . Muslim is not an ethnicity . Islam is a religion and being a Muslim is a religious identity not ethnic, Ethnic Tamil Muslims in the island are called Moors and this only relates to their religion and not to their origin. 99% of the island’s Muslims are ethnic Tamils , that too from South India, who converted to Islam. Therefore there should be only two states in the island one Sinhalese and the other Tamil , just like during ancient times and before the British arrived.

          You falesely crying out for a fake Muslim ethnicity and an Islamic state , that had never existed in the island , will not realize. You are just wanting to create an Islamic state only in the Tamil areas , as a ploy to steal these lands from the Tamils for the Sinhalese. If the Tamil Muslims in the Tamil areas do not wish to remain and be part of the Tamil nation , they are free to move to the Sinhalese areas and become part of the Sinhalese nation and ethnicity . Understood. However they will not be given a chance to steal Tamil lands under the guise of a a fake Muslim ethnicity and an Islamic home land that previously never existed and then merge these lands with Sinhalese lands , like you dream of . Seriously ask any Muslim living in the north or east if they want to be o part of the Tamil or Sinhalese nation and you will definitely get a reply that you will not like. The island’s Muslims have now learnt the hard way what most Sinhalese really are.

      You are wrong. For the past 70 years Tamils were cheated by racist separatist Malabar Vellala Tamil politicians by creating the impression in the minds of Tamils that Sinhalayo are their arch enemy and they are their saviors. By so doing they managed to divert the attention of low caste Tamils in Yapanaya from the true enemy who oppress them.

    Mohan Pieris on his own volition, without reason or provocation has raised Sri Lanka’s human rights issues at the UNGA.

    A well written piece; one issue connecting with other in meaningful way from start to end. Interesting and enjoyable to read.

    In 2018, in his last meeting, New King bragged in Colombo that he was going to withdraw from UNHRC, at the UNGA meeting. But some of his consultants forced to him to abandon the speech he was preparing in Colombo and rewrite in in New York. In New York he asked the General Assembly to help him to implement the resolution 30/1. Then he called Mano Ganesan back at home and said that he had made a speech acceptable to everybody. Mokan Pieris is such a low birth when Ranil wanted him to quit in 2015, he told that he will do all UNP wanted, but appoint him as Italian Ambassador. It is not Mokan Pieris, but no one on the job these in Lankawe is for duty but to fulfill personal egos. Time for Tamils to go alone so, Sinhalese need not plunge into elected Hitler dictatorship to manage Tamils. Singapore- Malaysia is an example of win-win deal. Singapore is not a threat to Malaysia, but a constructive partner in political and economic developments.

            UNHRC produced that report as continuation of Old King’s promise to then UNSG. UNSG appointed a Expert Panel to study the situation. That report recommended him for a full investigation. So he asked UNHRC to follow up on Expert Panel report. UNHRC asked Lankawe to do a full investigation in a hybrid court. Lankawe got out of that agreement. So UNHRC has jotted couple of reasons what UNSG should take back and refer it to ICC, not for them (UNHRC). It is all UNSG’s work after consulting Old King. UNHRC has nothing in that other than following UN guide lines.

    So here we are another Rajapaksa crony, who must have tried to show just how proud and tough we Sri Lankans are, and that we do not take any Sh*t from these “foreign nations”. Boru show and boru pride by Sri Lanka. It was nicely dealt with by the UN Secretary General , and this Rajapaksa tool, had to look like a rebuked schoolboy who tried to throw his little weight around, and was “put in his place” by the grownups.
    Laje Nadthe?

    These unfounded accusations about the UN being influenced by “Tamil terrorists” are now getting lame. EVERY UN official who is compelled to investigate Sri Lanka’s discrimination and war crimes, is predictably met with the same accusations.

    Why are the Rajapaksa’s so defensive if they have nothing to hide?

    It is simple. Until these families up North are given answers, and can find closure into their endless search for their loved ones, the UN, and Human Rights organizations, will be asking for answers. If Nanda has nothing to hide, he will open the door and welcome them. Meanwhile the Rajapaksa cronies better realize that throwing our little weight around in the world arena, like they do here, is not going to work, especially when we don’t have a leg to stand on.

    The Sinhalese Buddhist establishment and most Sinhalese Buddhist and Christian , are brainwashed racist to the core. Sadly this is the truth. What the LTTE leader Pirapakaran stated was the truth. He stated do not expect any justice or settlement from the Sinhalese. The Sinhalese are people who are brainwashed with the Mahavamsa myth and have a Mahavamsa mentality , that the island only belongs to them , completely ignoring the real history of the island ,it did not and large parts of the island from prehistoric until 1948 was exclusively Tamil and Hindu , ruled by Tamil Hindu kings and chiefs until European colonisation. The last Tamil chiefdom to fall to the Europeans was in 1815 when Pandara Vanniyan lost to the British. Whatever he was , this statement and observation about the Sinhalese is 100% accurate and the true.

    This may be the reason he kept on fighting and knew nothing will come out of these so called peace talks, as the Sinhalese establishment is very adept in fooling the world and taking them for a ride , as shown in the past 10 years after the defeat of the LTTE. They promised India and the world that is they helped to defeat the LTTE , Tamil rights federalism and devolution will be granted and it will be more than the Sec 13A Plus.

      This is why they constantly vote for racist genocidal scoundrels , whom they know will marginalize the island’s three Tamil communities and make them third rates with hardly any rights in their own land. They do not care if they loot the wealth of the island or even invite outsiders to plunder the wealth of the island. As long as the Tamils are discriminated marginalized and their lands and heritage are plundered and destroyed by the Sinhalese state to promote Sinhalese Buddhism , they do not care. They are not getting fooled by these racist scoundrels and war criminals but are willing participants of this. This is what they want. This is why you get a Catholic Sinhalese Cardinal who hails from the recently Tamil North West coast and Sinhalese Buddhist monks , hand in glove with each other and openly preaching that the island is solely Sinhalese Buddhist. Shame on the Vatican to allow this and shame on Britain the last colonial power who gave the Sinhalese all this power, when the handed the island to these Sinhalese racists on a platter. Yet the Sinhalese as usual go around falesely stating the British favoured the Tamils to justify their racism , even 70 years after independence and still playing the victim card to justify the war crimes and genocide. The British never favoured the Tamils but only used them for their hard work but always favoured the Sinhalese. This is why when the Tamil and Sinhalese lands were merged , they hardly developed the Tamil areas, made Colombo the capital , handed power only to the Sinhalese majority with no proper protection to the island’s Tamil people , to their language , rights or lands. They should have either divided the island into its Tamil and Sinhalese parts just like they found it or given a federal solution. They did neither but gave everything to the Sinhalese.

The aggressively protest and as usual try to lie and fool their way out it by promising to appoint fake commissions , which everyone knows will not change anything , only just to fool the world , which is willing to be fooled , for their own selfish benefit. Look at the ground reality of what is happening now. They are aggressively using the armed forces , the so called Archaeological department and other government departments like the forestry to steal and acquire Tamil lands in the north and east for their Sinhalizaion process. Buddhism and fake concocted history is being used as tool . Tamil dairy farmers in the border areas of Batticaloa are being abducted their cattle stolen and beaten up by illegal Sinhalese settlers , so that they will leave their lands and run away and Sinhalese can take over. It has been found out , that the highest Sinhalese government officials in the east are behind this act. Ancient prehistoric Hindu temple in the north and east , that had existed long before the arrival of Buddhism in the island are now being falesely being claimed to be Buddhist places of worship and the local Hindus are being banned to enter

            these ancient places of worship by the armed forces and government officials , despite court orders to the contrary and Buddha statues installed with the ancient Hindu artifacts within the temple premises like the Sivalingam and Trishool or Sulam being destroyed to erase any traces of pre Buddhist Tamil Saivite civilization in the island. Kuroonthoor in the Vanni is the latest . These ancient religious sites Hindu or Buddhist in the north and east are all Tamil . Now everything is falsely being claimed as Sinhalese , as an excuse to settle Sinhalese in these areas. Now yesterday in Jaffna a foundation stone for a huge Buddhist Vihara , where there is no history of Buddhism . was laid by the army chief and accused war criminal Shavenda Silva at Velikammam and private Tamil lands are being used. There was a huge army presence and lots of Buddhis priests present. This is happening again with impunity , despite huge local opposition and against a court order. The UN and Human rights can be damned but the Sinhalese Buddhist racist machine will roll in with impunity in the island , with its destruction and structural genocide of the island’s Tamils , their heritage and history. They know the UN the west and India are only playing lip service to just Tamil rights but are selfishly looking after their interests.

So, do not try to distort the history of this country by writing blatant lies. In this case Gobble’s theory will not work.

                Eagle,
                You are not fit to live the town life Europeans taught to you. Apparently you are wildly against that. Democracy driving you crazy. Pull off your pants. Wear a Koddukku or not even that. Pull off your Podimenike’s blouse. Take to muddy field and make her to do seedling planing. (I am not against farming, a needed economic activity for all world and all caste and creed. But a one thinks in the modern times, even farmers should understand agricultural science .A man believe in Mahawamsa story of woman sleeping with lion will not understand the plants’ pollination, a needed knowledge to farming.)

                Stupid Blind racist Eagle now living the good life in some western country . Canada or Australia and enjoying all the perks , that these liberal western democracies offers to immigrants like you . The Kandyan convention has noting to with the Tamil kingdom of Jaffna . The Tamil lands to the north and east , nor the Sinhalese coastal areas. These had already fallen to the Portuguese , then to the Dutch and from them to the British. It is about the capture of the Central Sinhalese/ Tamil Kingdom of Kandy , that was ruled by a Tamil king and many Tamil chiefs . All nominally calling themselves Sinhalese but Tamil . This ironically includes the ancestor of one of the biggest anti Prime Minister . Srimavo Bandaranaicke. This is why half the so called Kandyan chiefs including the ancestor of Srimavo ,signed the convention in Tamil and the last king of Kandy and his immediate family were deported to their native Tamil Nadu , where he lived the rest of his life and died. His direct decedents still live there. Please also note that the kingdom of Kandy was captured through treachery , as the so called Sinhalese chiefs( sic as most them were really Tamil) did not like a Tamil king and a Tamil court ruling them.. DO not try to distort history .

    Ironically, it so appears that past CJ’s could be easily charged for contempt of court for not carrying out their duties diligently.

    Good Lord, he aims to take over from Guterres! Or go as the lamb to the slaughter! He will revel in either. Instead of insulting the UN, he should unrelentingly and point by point, spell out the truth factors of the Lankan situation.

    Mohan Pieris is a cheat, a crook who joined with the criminal mafia and turned justice upside down while holding the post of Chief Justice just as he canvassed to secure his job promising President Sirisena that he is prepared to turn justice on its head if that would make the president happy. He is a disgrace to the whole nation of Srilanka. He should be treated like majestic scum by the UNHRC. I do know it very well because I have been sent to perdition by him by fixing the Supreme Court Bench which turned justice upside down to save his friend the defense counsel.

    Michelle Bachelet has herself suffered the brutality of state terror and tyranny . She is a physician who was previously President of Chile. Her husband was tortured to death by Pinochet the Chilean dictator. According to Wilkipedia in 1975 Bachelet and her mother were blindfolded and taken to a notorioius secret detention centre in Santiago where they were intorrogated and tortured. Michelle Bachet is a woman of great character and integrity who knows what it is to suffer for the cause of truth and justice . How dare men of straw simple sycophants of various heads of state who merely echo their master’s voice in the UN, challenge and insult a great woman of Michelle Bachelet’s stature ?

    It is mind-boggling how on earth President Gotabaya Rajapaksa came to appoint this disgraceful ex-chief justice as country’s permanent resident representative to the UN. Is there no sense of shame? Or is it a question birds of the same feather flock together!

    Persons who should be rightly locked up like common criminals are sent to the UN to represent Sri Lanka!

    In addition to my earlier comment Mohan Pieris should be jailed for a much more heinous crime or no crime by Hon. Mr. Ranjan Ramanayake for violating the Penal Code while serving as the Chief Justice. He is guilty of obstruction of justice by intimidating and dictating to judges to issue orders to save the skin of the Defense Counsel who is his close buddy and Boss of the Mafia to put inside a sarcophagus a heinous crime of criminal invasion of property, similar to the case of Late Mr. Tyrrel Gunatilleke a retired DIG. It also caused the death of a person all of which was carried out by an ill famous criminal gang by the name Nawala Nihal Underworld. Ms. Hanaa Singer seems to have failed in her duty as the country representative of the UN for not having briefed the UN Secretary General objecting the presence of Mohan Pieris whose presence diminishes the integrity and respectability of the UN Body.

    There are very few career diplomats at the Foreign Ministry. Political appointees and nepotist appointees form the main body of our diplomatic corps. The first thing they do when sent to serve in their missions abroad is to put their foot in the mouth, bringing much shame and embarrassment to the country.

    More than any other ministry, the foreign ministry calls for the most astute selection of people to serve in its ranks. What is happening here is that diplomatic appointments are used as a reward system by the incumbent government for their supporters, family members and relatives, with scant regard for competence, experience or suitability.

    Well said Mr. Pieris!!!! Sri Lankans shouldn’t be sorry for defending their motherland and thwarting the terrorist invaders.

    Has ex-prime minster of Portugal Antonio Guterres forgotten that Sri Lanka was a Portuguese colony for more than 150 years? Portuguese colonialists were the most barbaric than Dutch and British. These colonialists and India created the mess that Sri Lanka is in now.

    Don’t tolerate UN’s bloody imperial slave master tone.

    Make Adel Balasingam the face of LTTE terrorism. Her name should be mentioned in every conversation with UN.

      Antonio the Sinhalese racist with a Portuguese name , as usual like most Sinhalese blame everyone else for the mess that the Sinhalese created and their racism. The Portuguese who left the island more than 400 years ago. Funny most of their barbarity was shown in the Tamil north and east and not in the Sinhalese areas, as the Tamils resisted their rule, whilst the Sinhalese meekly surrendered to their rule and even cooperated with them to subjugate the Tamils. Blame India that bent over backwards to accommodate Sinhalese racists like you , betrayed the island’s Tamil population and helped to defeat the LTTE , thinking that they will get lots of benefits and a toe hold in the island from the grateful Sinhalese. Little did they know about the Sinhalese art of fooling people to get what they want and then drop them once they are of no use and the deep hatred that most Sinhalese have for India and Indians , despite the Indians running behind them. Blame the British who made you Sinhalese powerful by giving the entire island , including the hapless Tamils on a platter in 1948. Until they arrived , the Sinhalese were nothing , being ruled by Tamil dynasties and aristocracy and the Tamil lands to the north east and north west was separate.

        While the Tamil King Cankili II of the Jaffna kingdom was engaged in a fierce battle with Portuguese, the Sinhalese from the south were collaborating with the Portuguese. The Portuguese gave the Sinhalese a fore name as DON for collaborating with them and helping them with all their basic needs. For example, Don David Hewavitarana aka Anagarika Dharmapala and Don Niculas Gunawardhana aka Hikkaduwa Sri Sumangala. It was the Sinhalese who were Portuguese Lackies.
        The Sinhalese also adopted the Portuguese names as their surnames. For example, De Silvas, Fernandos, Fonsekas, Dias, Coorays, De Souzas, Pereras, Peiris, Mendis and so on. The Tamils do not have Portuguese names like Silvas and Pereras because they were NOT collaborating with them like the Sinhalese.

          So you mean our Champawati de Silva asking restitution from Portuguese is like punishing her grand parents, instead of taking care of them? That Sounds like what Sinhabhahu did for his dad, the lion who fathered him! Kothiraththukkulla Kumanm? (trait of the family gene?)

    When Mohan Pieris’s sponsor former President Mahinda Rajapakse was defeated by Sirisena in 2015 , Pieris paid a late night call on the newly elected resident. The election night he was at Rajapakse residence

    Pieris told Sirisena the new president that he will give all judgments the way the president wants if he allows him to remain Chief justice..

    The legal profession, judges, the new government and the citizens did not want to tolerate this fraud any longer.

    They threw Pieris out of office physically, there was no impeachment. He was treated with such contempt that he did not deserve a formal sacking.

    Is the UN aware that this is the quality of the guy now speaking on behalf of Sri Lanka ?

    Old habits die hard!

    Mohan Pieris has, as usual, to please his masters in Colombo, opened his mouth and put his foot into it.
    The Tamil diaspora has scored their first goal in New York, thanks to this joker.

    Of all people this man, the former Chief Justice has the audacity to question the integrity of the UN Secretary General. The man is out of order and has added fuel to the already ragging fire
    Its time these fellows are made accountable
    I know Un is a talking shop with no teeth. That said as country’s representative, he has to maintain certain amount of decorum in executing his duties

      RN,
      it is right only to put the blame on former CJ. Look at the leaders that got reelected by the very same people….. ? In fact, from top to the bottom in today’s govt, over 90% them are either alleged for high crimes, with some cases being still on going while others being taken away by abusing legal system. With all that being the ground reality, just to point the finger only at one CJ ?
      .
      Please look at how former President in South Korea got indicted – if the kind of modern rich countries under democratic governance could do so why SRILANKEN judiciary fail.
      .

      It is high time, people of all levels to realize it, that both people and their representatives are highly corrupted. Unfortunatly least minority that would not tolerate abusive culture filled with ramphant corruption remain speechless as usual. That is the reason why Nagananda Kodithuwakku and JVPrs or the like would not have a chance in today s srilanka.

    I would have thought a natural case making for our GOSL would have been to ask the UN investigate all that happened in Sri Lanka since 1970 onwards starting from Jaffna.

    The world need to learn how not to Destry a Nation through foreign sponsored events that is yet to be put on records and Hague acts accordingly. I am sure all the SL mother and father will sign unto this??

    I would like to know from the general CT readership from where a victim can obtain redress wherein Sarath N. Silva and Mohan Pieris during their respective watches as Chief Justice fixed the EC, HC and SC benches with their stooges to issue orders sanctifying a heinous crime and shoving justice out of the court room window. The two of them worked in cahoot with the criminal gang who is behind the crime for a fair share of the loot. It will be very interesting to find out the views of the Hon. Lord Chief Justice and Hon. Attorney General.
