Mr. President, What Happened To The LTTE Cadres Who Surrendered To The Army At Vadduvakal On May 18, 2009?

What Happened to the LTTE Cadres Who Surrendered to the Army at Vadduvakal on May 18, 2009?

Your Excellency,

The UN Human Rights Council had adopted Resolution No.30/1 of October 01, 2015  and co-sponsored by Sri Lanka that called for an international investigation into war crimes with foreign judges, prosecutors and investigators. Clause 6 of Resolution 30/1, inter-alia,  states as follows:

‘Welcomes the recognition by the Government of Sri Lanka that accountability is essential to uphold the rule of law and to build confidence in the people of all communities of Sri Lanka  in the justice system, notes with appreciation the proposal of the Government of Sri Lanka to establish a judicial mechanism with a special counsel to investigate allegations of violations  and abuses of human rights and violations of international humanitarian law, as applicable; affirms that a credible justice process should include independent judicial and prosecutorial institutions led by individuals known for their integrity and impartiality; and also affirms in this regard the importance of participation in a Sri Lankan judicial mechanism, including the special counsel’s office, of Commonwealth and other foreign judges, defence lawyers and authorized prosecutors and investigators.’

Despite the fact that Sri Lanka co-sponsored Resolution 30/1, the President, as well as the Prime Minister, has stated publically that Sri Lanka’s constitution does not permit foreign judges to operate in the country. This raises the question of why Sri Lanka sponsored Resolution 30/1 in the first place?

“I have shown the strength of my backbone, two weeks ago, the UN Human Rights chief had said Sri Lanka must have international judges in the accountability mechanism. The following day, I had the guts to dismiss it,” you said while addressing the Executive Committee meeting of your Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) held here on March 03, 2017.

You have repeatedly claimed on public platforms that you have put an end to the arguments and discussions over the issue of bringing foreign judges for the proposed judicial mechanism to investigate the allegations of war crime and human rights violations by convincing the international authorities and its leaders that such process is not needed in Sri Lanka.

The International Truth and Justice Project is deeply concerned that Sri Lankan President Maithripala Sirisena appears to be rolling back on his commitment in Geneva to include international involvement in a future judicial mechanism. In an interview with the BBC, the President reportedly stated, “I will never agree to international involvement in this matter.”

“We have more than enough specialists, experts and knowledgeable people in our country to solve our internal issues, this investigation should be internal and indigenous, without violating the laws of the country, and I believe in the judicial system and other relevant authorities in this regard.

“The international community need not worry about matters of state interest.  I will never agree to international involvement in this matter. This flies in the face of the recommendation of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights that Sri Lankan establishes “an ad hoc hybrid special court, integrating international judges, prosecutors, lawyers and investigators”.

High Commissioner Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein has been very clear about the “total failure of domestic mechanisms to conduct credible investigations” in Sri Lanka.

Though the President occasionally mentions about accountability and reconciliation between various communities, especially between the Tamils and Sinhalese, such political reconciliation is not possible unless members of the armed forces who committed war crimes are brought to justice.

“If communities that have been torn apart by decades of violence and impunity are to be reconciled, the Sri Lankan government should initiate internal reforms and seek international assistance to prevent ongoing violations and ensure real accountability for past abuses,” said Sam Zarifi, Amnesty International’s Asia-Pacific director.

There have been numerous massacres of innocent Tamil civilians during the war that lasted for several decades. A senior Sri Lankan army commander and the frontline soldier told Channel 4 News that point-blank executions of Tamils at the end of the Sri Lankan civil war were carried out under orders. One frontline soldier said: “Yes, our commander ordered us to kill everyone. We killed everyone.” And a senior Sri Lankan army commander said: “Definitely, the order would have been to kill everybody and finish them off. I don’t think we wanted to keep any hardcore elements, so they were done away with. It is clear that such orders were, in fact, received from the top.”

The Human Rights Watch in a lengthy Q & A write-up on Human Rights stated as follows:

“Accountability for Violations of International Humanitarian Law in Sri Lanka stated, inter-alia, all parties to an armed conflict -both states and non-state armed groups -are responsible for complying with the requirements of international humanitarian law. That is, each party must respect and ensure respect for the laws of war by its armed forces and other persons or groups acting on its orders or under its direction or control. This obligation does not depend on reciprocity-parties to a conflict must respect the requirements whether or not the opposing side abides by it. It also does not depend on the reason for which the respective parties go to war, whether by a state (“fighting terrorism”) or an armed group (“ethnic homeland”). And all parties to an armed conflict must be held to the same standards, regardless of any disparity in the harm caused by alleged violations.

“A party to an armed conflict is responsible for serious violations of the laws of war committed by its armed forces and persons or entities acting under its authority, direction, or control. That responsibility, whether by a state or non-state actor, entails a requirement to make full reparations for the loss or injury caused; reparations can take the form of restitution (reestablishment of the prior situation), compensation (financial payment), or satisfaction (such as a formal apology or other action) to another state, entity, or individuals. As discussed below, states also have an obligation to hold accountable individuals under their control who are responsible for serious violations of the laws of war.

In this connection, I wish to draw your Excellency’s attention to the surrender of more than 200 LTTE cadres at Vadduvaakal on May 18, 2009 evening in the presence of several witnesses, including spouses, relatives and friends. The surrenders were told that they will be released after a short inquiry by the army. They were taken away in CTB buses including a Catholic priest Francis Joseph who accompanied the surrender.

Needless to remind the President that you were the acting Defence Minister during the last phase of the war that officially ended on May 19, 2009. More than anyone else, the President should know the fate of these LTTE cadres. If they are not in army camps then where are they now? If they are not among the living who gave orders to kill them?

The Geneva Convention relative to the Treatment of Prisoners of War, Geneva July 27, 1929 was signed in Geneva.  It came into force on June 19, 1931. It is this version of the Geneva Convention which covered the treatment of prisoners of war during World War 11. It is the predecessor of the Third Geneva Convention in 1949.

Sri Lanka, a member of the UNO, is bound to comply with all Conventions, treaties and other sources of international law. Sri Lanka cannot pick and choose at its whims and fancies.

The UN Charter in its Preamble set an objective: “to establish conditions under which justice and respect for the obligations arising from treaties and other sources of international law can be maintained”. Ever since, the development of, and respect for international law has been a key part of the work of the Organization.  This work is carried out in many ways – by courts, tribunals, multilateral treaties and by the Security Council.  These powers are given to it by the UN Charter, which is considered an international treaty.  As such, it is an instrument of international law, and the UN Member States are bound by it.  The UN Charter codifies the major principles of international relations, from sovereign equality of States to the prohibition of the use of force in international relations.

In November 2009, General Fonseka notified the government that America’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS) had sought his testimony in a probe into alleged human-rights violations by Gotabaya Rajapaksa, Sri Lanka’s defence secretary and a naturalised American citizen. General Fonseka was hastily flown back from America on the day the DHS interview was to have taken place.

Mahinda Rajapaksa an adroit manipulator openly admitted that he followed the Bush administration and fought “Bush’s war”.

According to the 68-page report presented by the US state department based on US embassy findings, satellite imagery and aid agencies accounts, painted a bleak picture of civilian life in a war zone under constant bombardment and where the death toll was rising. According to the UN and human rights groups, between 7,000 and 20,000 civilians were killed in the north-east between January and May. The Report also alleged that government forces shelled civilian populations, hospitals and schools in the rebel-controlled territory, often in areas that had been described by the authorities as no-fire zones.

General Sarath Fonseka, the former Sri Lankan army chief claimed that top government officials were responsible for war crimes during the final phases of the country’s 25-year civil war in 2009. Obviously, he was referring to former Defence Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa. At the height of war, Gotabhaya claimed that hospitals are legitimate military targets.

Fonseka himself accused of commanding troops that committed war crimes and crimes against humanity had admitted that hospitals treating unarmed Tamils during the war had come under Sri Lanka military bombardment.

It is interesting to observe that two ex-army chiefs Sarath Fonseka and Jegath Jayasuriya traded accusations each claiming the other committed war crimes.

So there is mounting evidence that the armed forces fought the war by jettisoning UN conventions and rules governing conduct of wars.

Attempts by the President and the Prime Minister claiming that no war crimes were committed and war heroes will not be put on trial may fool the Sinhalese people, but it will not fool the international community.

Only an investigation into allegations of violations and abuses of human rights and violations of international humanitarian laws with foreign judges, prosecutors and investigators will clear the air.

Yours sincerely

          “If 34 countries helped to wipe out this LTTE scum then ask UN to take those countries to the war crimes tribunal and Sri Lanka has nothing to say on the matter. “

          You are right however do you have any evidence that shows these people surrendered to members of the armed forces of any of the 34 countries. If you could identify and supply the public those details then of course it could be taken up with the appropriate authorities.

          Until then please stop being a smart ass patriotic clever dick.

          “Where were you when your Terrorist scum were pleading for help?”

          Actually like you and your war Zeroes he would have hidden behind his nona’s back.

        Ohhh Really…..Couldn’t touch them 30 years ago ?? LOL LOL LOL. The biggest phony lie I’ve ever heard !!

        How old are you must be 20 something?

        Hey, kiddo have you ever heard of General Denzil Kobbekaduwa? He almost got Prabakaran 30 years ago. That criminal was just minutes away from getting killed. Our traitorous coward leaders bowing to the international pressure to let him get away.

        It was always the so-called international community that saved your phony leader Prabhakaran from getting killed. By arming him etc. Fortunately for the Int community we had a bunch of coward leaders too. Ranil, Chandrika etc. India fully responsible for arming and training Prabhakaran. If it was not for the international community Prabakaran will dead 30 years ago just like Wijeweera.

              After nearly 35 years and 30,000 death, 26,000 disabled and 70,000 still either missing in action or deserted the services. By the way the powerful army was hiding behind Bata Slippers Wearing Baby Brigade, women folks and VP’s fat bum when the Hindian IPKF invaded this island.

              All because the stupid Sinhala/Buddhist fascist thought this island belonged to them, and not to any other people, Buddhists, Sinhalese, Christians, Hindus, Tamils, Muslims,………………………………

              Alright, you have had the moment of Gota’s glory now get on with reclaiming the country from the Sinhala/Buddhist fascists.

          There was no international pressure.
          Please stop lying.
          By the way who do you think killed General Denzil Kobbekaduwa, was it his butler?

          Do you seriously believe your little islanders could have won the war without the complete support of Hindians? Dream, Dream ………………

            You must be living in an alternative world. The international preassure was obvious. Thats why miliband came here with his french budy during the last stages of the war. To warn Mahinda.
            Otherwise why would they be here ? To praise our president ?
            Mahinda unlike the spineless cowardly leaders before him told them they have no business here.

            It’s because of the international pressure we’re now having this Geneva nonsense. Western masters are angry that their pet Prabakaran got killed. They knew Prabakaran without their life support wouldn’t exist more than a couple of days. We didn’t obey them and killed their pet. When jvp was getting crushed during the JR/Premadasa regime the so called international community didn’t care. They didn’t pass Geneva resolutions. People like Hussein of Geneva didn’t exist back then. They didn’t want to hold government responsible for war crimes like they do now. They fully supported the government. But they were always against fighting with LTTE.

            Our military was fully capable of getting rid of Prabakaran and his “kurumbatti Galkatas'” military force. It’s was matter of days. Prabakaran, hiding behind civilians fought like a true coward.

            Indians never wanted to kill Prabakaran during 80s. They even send their forces to protect him. Not to kill him.Rajiv Ghandi played with fire and payed the price. Then the silly Indians learned their lesson. That’s why they didn’t interfere during 2005-2009.

              LTTE was banned for a long time.
              Americans and Hindians have already started providing intelligence satellite and other.
              Hindians were on the ground and space providing not only intelligence but strategic advice, many turban wearing Hindian troops seen in Omanthai and other areas of the vanni.
              Hindian air force helicopters seen taking off and landing in Colombo as well as in Vanni.
              ….
              ……..

              The LTTE owned warehouse ships near Andaman island were destroyed by Hindians. Its funny Travis Sinniah believes he and he alone single handedly destroyed the lot.

          This is news to me because as I understand they purchased or manufactured their arms and still had a good bank balance to spare which KP traded for his life and you know who got it.

        Hello Thanga,
        They all are overseas having comfortable lives thanks to some Sinhalese traitors who arranged fake passports and fake documents for them to leave the country at a cost paid by LTTE diaspora.
        It is easy if you made this request from Colombo based Western, some African foreign Missions and Indian HC to divulge the details of political refugees who have sought and received asylum in their countries in the immediate aftermath of concluded war in 2009.
        If you have forgotten, when there was talk that Western Embassies want to set up Consulates in the North and East, former President Mahinda Rajapaksa openly said that he fully supported it and that any country can take terrorists if they want, he has no objection. And even Sinhalese didn’t object.
        You very well know, you are barking at the wrong tree. And you are trying to “put exiled LTTE terrorists overseas in trouble” as they all used fake passports and fake documents posing as innocent civilians. Only a few LTTE terrorists got caught when they tried mass human smuggling. Others went unscathed.

          Hello Thanga
          Having said the above, I wish to reiterate the fact that a high number of hardcore terrorists have fled the country in the immediate aftermath of the conclusion of the war, who had been hiding behind civilians. The large influx of civilians in IDP camps enabled hardcore terrorists to cover up from the armed forces.
          .
          The previous government sent a large list of hardcore terrorists to INTERPOL requesting it to arrest and send them back to Sri Lanka for prosecution. However, Yahapalanaya government has withdrawn the list at the request of LTTE diaspora who funded them at the last Presidential election. Mangala is answerable to that. Get the original list of terrorists sent to INTERPOL and you will be surprised to find answers to your question there..
          .
          Mr. President, Thangavelu’s letter is misleading. Please ACTIVATE the original list of terrorists sent to INTERPOL which has been withdrawn for no reason on our part but in support of LTTE diaspora, by your own government, with or without your knowledge. There is no point of accusing Western governments for protecting terrorists without activating this list.

          It seems you are also the one who went to London to do street cleaning reaquesting refugee status with Tamil name ?
          If you have solid evidence that the said Tamils in the list are in London why can`t you expose them ?

          Stop writing stupid there are 40,000 Malayalies are living in UK and better assimilate with them because you have Malayali blood .

          Only fools today believe comic book Mahavamsa , so called Sinhalese all came from South Indian part of todays India many hundreds years ago therewere many Tamil Kingdoms there then.

          Take a map of Kerala you can see the places like Panadura,Kalmunai ,Kallar all coastal towns even today. so this tell the truth.

          Check the DNA of any Sinhalese it will end up in Tamil Nadu or Kerala .

          Sinhala card board army would have never ever even touch the hair of LTTE fighters withour foreign help.

          Do you know during July 1983 ..14th when there was a rumour that Tigers have enterd Colombo all Sihalase ran away with fear ?

          Champa,
          Do you know who are the Sinhalese traitors who arranged fake passports and fake documents? It is not that easy for LTTE cadres to escape from the so called liberators who had gun on one and hand and the bible on the hand. Who governed this country at that time? Every one knows who arranged faked passport to former LTTE leader and later became minister in the Lord Mahinda govt to travel UK. Do you know that genteman who is now want to become the president of this country? Every one knows who is 15% commission minister. Do you know that who was that? Now tell who are the traitors?

        “..BTW the world care about these people this is why UN is serious ..”
        Oh yeah, UN was in deep slumber when barbarian Prabhakaran and his bloodthirsty cadre killed innocent Sri Lankan civilians for 30 years denying their RIGHT TO LIFE.
        UN woke up only to protect exiled LTTE cadre, hardcore terrorists who are in prison and punish our army for “NOT PROTECTING THE HUMAN RIGHTS OF SAVAGE TERRORISTS” at the expense of civilians.
        So far, UN hasn’t uttered a single word about Prabhakran massacring innocent Sri Lankan civilians for 30 years.
        UN only care about terrorists. That is why even after 76 years, they still couldn’t define “terrorism” or bring in a Charter stipulating the rights of individual sovereign countries in protecting their citizenry from bloodthirsty terrorists.
        Sri Lanka should contest for a future UN Secretary General post and correct this blunder. There is no other way.

          Without the help 0f 34 countries your Sinhala card board Army have to wet their pants even today .
          Celebrationg a borrowed..fake..artificial victory without shame after free liquor without shame .
          Veera Puran Appu was a terrorist for then British government but this criminal was a hero for Modayas.

      Buddha didn’t say ‘ who cares etc’ to Angulimala. Buddha showered him with Kindness and compassion and showed him the right path.Buddha said that only to his son Rahula giving up all material things in life.Why aren’t Buddhist practice what Buddha preached and give what the minorities are demanding and pave the way to nibbana the state of supreme bliss.

        Because Buddha is an exceptional person with exceptional powers and we aren’t. Also, Buddha didn’t say we should let criminals walk free. Buddha did say a responsible king/leader should lock up criminals. LTTE is a criminal organization.

        No matter which way you try to spin Prabakaran is a murderer and a criminal. He and his ilk killed so many innocent people. He was given plenty of opportunities to lay down arms and he threw all of them away. So killing him was the only solution.

          If the govt really believes LTTE is a criminal organization it should lift all ban and let the people decide.

            This is not coming from a Kangaroo court:

            “The Swiss Federal Criminal Court has given no prison terms to alleged financiers of the Sri Lankan Tamil separatist group Liberation Tigers of Tamil Elam (LTTE).”

            One of its findings:
            ” The judges also felt there was not enough concrete proof to consider the LTTE as a criminal organisation. “

          You don’t have to say that you are not exceptional. Your comments reveal that.You condone murder. According to Buddhism you have to pay for this bad karma. This or next or in many more births to come.[ Dittadamma Upapajja Apararapariya Karma] Buddhists are suffering in Samsara because they don’t practice real Buddhism. Otherwise Sinhala Buddhists should vanish from earth sooner than later when all good Buddhists attain Nibbana.

      Who care about you nasty Sinhalese racist. Oh by the way the Sinhalese word Manik ( precious stone) is derived from the Tamil word Manickam( precious stone) . You name is purely derived from Tamil you evil Sinhalese racist . You like most Sinhalese are descended from Tamils. There is no Sinhalese who can state they do not have Tamil ancestry. This racist president and government who are in power because of the Tamils is appointing a Muslim backstabber as minister of Hindu affairs and resettlement to deliberately insult the Tamils and sabotage their resettlement and their religion. Why doesn’t he appoint this Muslim as minister of Buddhist affairs. He can listen to racist caste conscious Mahanayakes and not appoint low caste Catholic Cooray as governor of Central Province but has the audacity to appoint a fake Arab Tamil hating South Indian origin Muslim , as a minister of Hindu affairs. Will he dare to appoint a Hindu as minister of Islamic affairs . He will not. Proves all these Sinhalese are anti Tamil to the core and after the fall of the LTTE thing that the Tamils do not matter

          “how come Tamils (including you) are so ugly, and look like black monkeys, so different from the Sinhala people?” This is the biggest joke I have heard for years . once a friend asked me how will you describe a Sinhalese who married a gorilla , I said A social climber. You kalu Sinhala pakeya’s faces look like Gorillas bum cheeks. Talk of Tamils being ugly.

            Social adders: I once asked a slightly different question. How would you describe a gorilla married to a Tamil. The answer was – a monkey sliding uncontrollably down the social ladder.

            Pare-paharan, was an exception. He was handsome compared to the run of the mill Tamil. Or you may even say, he was handsome compared to the swim of the Palk Strait Kallathoni. Feeding on a good part of the rich food sent by our stupid government and the daily ‘last dinner’ chikkken curry, he was wrinkle free. He also had a nice symmetrical, nearly circular cross section. When marching, he was on a roll.

              Sivalinga: Had a nightmare last night. A Veddah had mated with a Tamil Nona and not having had enough she was waving at me. She went away when I started singing the song – “Nona Mata Atha wananawa. Mama nonata be kiyanawa”

              The best part was: “Ada nam Be Nona”

              By the way, why do Tamil women bathe the Sivalinga, with a white liquid and then lovingly stroke it and finally worship it?

                  Firstly, Idol worship, such as licking, stroking, kissing, bathing and using a penis shaped stone such as a Siva linga for pleasure as practiced by sex starved Tamil Nonas is unlawful in Saudia. Those caught doing that will be stoned to death stoning.

                  In other words, the motto is, you play with stone – you get stoned.

                  Secondly, Sri Lanka don’t have to do it because there are toys here that they can play with that are much better than Sivalingams.

                  In other words, one can summarize and say, Sinhala Genita apey lingam – Demala Genita Sivalingam.

              In his book Inside an Elusive Mind, MR Narayan Swamy desribes VP’s fondness for a good meal. Cooking chicken curry in Base One Four was one of his great delights. While his ‘beloved people’ were going through hell, this fat oily bastard was gorging himself on thosai. The SLA gave him a swift end before Diabetes and High Blood Pressure got him, and he is now rotating on a spit in the Avici hell.

                Taraki, I have heard that VP loved Kalavedi roast too. His minions used to catch Kalaveddahs, stick a sharp stick through the arse, push it until it came out through its dirty mouth and then roast it alive.

                Roasting is a cholesterol free process and was good for Prabha. But, of course, it was not so good for the Kalaveddah concerned.

                It is said that the Kalavedi population in Vanni has gone up in leaps and bounds after the sad demise of VP. So much so that these loathsome creatures are now migrating in to Matugama area too.

          Rodrigo is not a Sinhalese name but Portuguese. It is a name common to Tamil Paravans(Bharatha) originating from the Thootukudi area in Tamil Nadu. Many of them settled along the western coast of Sri Lanka. from Negombo to Colombo and some further south. Now most of them identify themselves as Sinhalese. You must be one of them. A recently Sinhalised low caste immigrant Indian Tamil ( 50% of the present day so called Sinhalese) now beating the anti Tamil drum. Ugly monkeys beget ugly monkeys , unless these monkeys have been playing harlot with the Portuguese, Dutch and the English , their looks would not have changed. We all know what the Sinhalese women in the Kandyan areas and along the coasts were up to . Look at the Sinhalese Sri Lankan cricket team and the cricket team from Tamil Nadu and we can see who looks like a gorilla. Your comment is very crass and low class and proves you low breeding. You think you have insulted the Tamils but in fact you only proven what a third rate you are and the racist mindset of most Sinhalese , who are indeed descended largely from Tamil low castes. The people who converted to Buddhism largely were the lowly peasant Elu( Tamil) speaking Dravidian Yakka . The elite Naga hardly converted to Buddhism or converted and reconverted back to Saivaism. It is largely from these lowly Yakkas and other Indian immigrants ( again largely Tamil) that the Sinhalese evolved. The Sri Lankan Tamil are largely descended from the indigenous Dravidian Naga.

              Exactly. For example if a Kalveddah is commenting, do you expect him to use his real identity – Kalaveddah? Of course not. He may use a part of his name such as Vedda, but surely he is not going to use the full name – unless he is stupid like RSSS.

            Skin Color: RSSS, sorry that I upset you so badly by my comment about your skin color. Please don’t be upset. After all, Africans are blacker than you guys. I always believe that beauty is only skin deep. This means that if you have black skin all is lost and you are out of the beauty contest. OMG! What am I saying? That must have hurt you more.
            Okay, let us try a different line. People cannot help their skin color. Right? No wrong! They can. They can have a nice skin color if they try. And, how may they try? By doing good Karma. You are black because of bad Karma you have done in your past lives. For example, you may have skinned a few Kalaveddahs live. Or prepared too much chikkken curry. That really is painful to the Chikkken – a bad Karma.
            Buddha has said that dark skin color is a result of bad Karma. When selecting a birth where he will be a Buddha he considers the Kalaya, Deepaya, Deshaya and a mother who would die in 7 days. I am sure the Buddhas also select a race with a nice skin color, like ours, because no one takes a dark skinned person seriously, least of all a dark skinned Kallathoni. They may make good sakkilyas but not credible religious leaders.
            So my advice to you is to do good Karma this life and avoid bad karma like skinning kalaveddahs alive and maybe, just maybe, you will be born next with an improved skin color. Don’t expect a quantum leap to our color, but there will be a noticeable difference.

In fact I have a very light complexion and light eyes too. Tamil people are the only people in the Indian sub continent who are openly proud of their dark complexion , as they are a very ancient people with a rich history . Most Tamils are brown or dark but there are millions of Tamils with light white complexions. Even from your Paravan community.

            The secret of my success: Yes I am what you say. But that is not the secret of my continued and seemingly non-ending survival here. The only thing I do in my job is to write comments. My boss reads them and makes ‘corrections’ and adjustments to them and then they are sent to CT.
            Why does he love them? Because my comments are anti-Tamil. He hates Tamils – all Tamils – irrespective of their sex, age, position and color (of course they are all black. But you know what I mean). He says the only good Tamils are the dead Tamils. There used to be some Tamilians mainly from Tamil Nadu working here. But they all gone now – contracts not renewed. Thanks to good old Edwin.
            You may ask why he hates Tamils so much. That too is thanks to good old Edwin. You remember the Kattankudy massacre where 154 Muslims were murdered by the Tamil Tigers in cold blood while they were praying? That is when he started hating them. As you know, the Arabs write numbers in the reverse direction. So he read the 154 as 451 and that is why he hates them so much. He could have stomached the 154 but not 451. Of course I did not correct him.
            With a 5 figure US$ salary, a 3-roomed Villa, a car and a Filipino housekeeper for good measure, paid by the company, I am not going to teach my boss how to count.

But there are other things like (i) Thala Thel smell (ii) the ‘chow chow’ way they eat, licking fingers and the sloooooo.. noise they make slurping the curry (iii) the Dadi Bidi sound of their language (iv) no forget iv onwards. I cannot say that in a respectable forum like CT.

              So you see, there are black Arabs, but they do not stink of Thala thel….. you get the gist? It is not for nothing that we say ‘Demalu Padi Gaththa wage…’ when we hear people talking loudly and in an unpleasant way.

              Also think why we call those noisy birds who live in a flock making karachchal noise as Demalichchas. We Sinhalese always associate the word Demala with nuisance – Ugly and a nuisance.

        Doesn’t matter how the word Manika derived. You might be correct. I don’t care. Let me ask you a simple question. Isn’t Tamil the national language of Tamil Nadu? So how come Sri Lankan Tamils speak the same language? No one in India speaks Sinhala. The Sinhala language originated in Sri Lanka while Tamil is not. Tamil is spoken by the people of Tamil Nadu too. That means you guys came here from Tamil Nadu? Prabakaran fought for the so-called Tamil homeland. I don’t understand why you consider Sri Lanka to be the Tamil homeland while speaking a language commonly spoken in Tamil Nadu.

        It is the time to you and your kind to go back to Tamil Nadu or live together with Sinhalese respecting their 2500-year-old history.

          The question Udarata Manika raises is quite impetuous. No one in India speaks Sinhala is NO ARGUMENT TO SHOW THAT THE PRESENT DAY SINHALESE WERE NOT THEMSELVES TAMILS PRIOR TO THE EVOLVING OF SINHALA, A HYBRID LANGUAGE of those Tamils who differentiated themselves on becoming adherents of Buddhism.

            Menike,
            What 2500 year “civilization ” are you talking about? Is it something to brag about that 75% of the Sinhala kings were either murdered by their relatives or by their courtiers?
            Are you proud of the fact that the Sinhalese never had a system of numbers? The Tamils even had zero!
            The Sihalese had no wheeled vehicles, that’s why the Sinhala word for cart is Portuguese.
            One cannot assume that the Sinhalese built all the monuments. If you look around even now, the sinhalese have to get Indians to build even giant Buddha statues, and Chinese for other things.
            I don’t think there is any other 2500 year civilization in the world that sends its women to clean Muslim toilets while pretending to be superior to Muslims.
            Please read up before you pontificate, U.M.

          Sinhala is not an original language like Tamil. It is a hybrid language consisting of Pali, Sanskrit, Tamil , portugese etc. With the exception of Tamil every other language is not native to this Island. The fact that Sinhala a mongrel language is only spoken in srilanka doesn’t make it an indigenous language to srilanka.

          you are welcome to go to Orissa or Bengal and claim your ancestral land there or go to Tamil nadu and claim it there. We Elavar belong to Eelam.

          2500 years history? Buddhism arrived only 2300 years ago and the king who converted to Buddhism was a Tamil Naga, so was your so called Sinhalese hero Duttugemunu, as well as your great king Parakramabahu and 90% of your so called kings. Sinhalese language only came into existence around the 8AD . So how can there be a Sinhalese people before that. It was gradually evolving from the native Tamil and from the Pali and Sanskrit of Buddhism. Tamil is the biggest contributor to Sinhalese . Not Pali not Sanskrit. 35-40% of Sinhalese vocabulary. 100% of its grammar syntax and lexicon. Take the Tamil element from Sinhalese and there will be no Sinhalese. Hela or old Sinhalese is a mixture of Elu( local Tamil) + Prakrit and is very close to Tamil. The word Sinhalese is a Pali/Prakrit corruption of one of the ancient Tamil words for the island Chingkallam meaning the land of red or copper coloured. Sinhalese DNAis 70% Indian Tamil. None of your ancient kings called themselves Sinhalese or Aryan as they were neither they were Tamils or Tamil Naga. All these monuments were built by imported South Indian labour and Polonarruwa was founded by the Tamil Cholas and all the ruins there Buddhist and Hindu was built by them that the Sinhalese falsely claim as theirs. So is everything in Kandy. Your famous Parthirrupuwa is pure Tamil Parthu( look) Iruppu(seat or sit) ,meaning a place where you sit and look. Do not post nonsense Tamil Manickam

      Manika,

      Perhaps nobody told you that even George Washington and Mohandas Ghandhi were condemned as a terrorists by who else but those who wanted to keep a nation and its people from their rightful freedom and liberty!

      However, those days were days of ignorance, far removed from the civic education and enlightenment most civilizations have gained in the intervening years. Obviously all that have escaped a good segment of the Sinhalese, whose manikas (wives, daughters, mothers and sisters) are instead busy washing Arab backs for a handful of Riyals!

        Don’t compare Gandhi to that worthless piece of garbage prabakaran. Thats disgusting. He attacked dalada maligawa, Sri Maha bodiya, killed small children and innocent civilians. He was a coward.

        Sinhalese have lost their pride. Modern day singhalese are a disgrace to our ancestors. Even colonial powers couldn’t enslave Sinhalese. They had to bring slaves from Tamil nadu. But now we sell our sisters and mothers to rich Arabs. We need a strong nationalistic leader to revert this trend.

          Manika,

          Ghandhi was called even worse by the sudha’s. One would know if one have had the time and the interest to read in between attending to the Arab backs.

          Hmm… “Sinhalese have lost their pride. Modern day singhalese are a disgrace to our ancestors. Even colonial powers couldn’t enslave Sinhalese”? How would you reconcile that with the well documented ancestral Kandyan (Udarata, wasn’t it?) hospitality?”

          So, isn’t the Arab back polishing no more than the modern day extension of that particular “enslavement” masked as a sentiment of “honour and pride” for the clan?!

          Even the gangster-thug President of the Philippines thought it fit to ban the sale of their maiden to satisfy the Riyal-holders? How come you are unable to convince you proud, Sinhala, chest thumping Budhist leaders to take some action despite the increasing incidences of women returning abused and even as coffin-fillers?

          Before you worry about what Tamils should do, see if you can reform your leaders and your men in general, from shamelessly selling their Manikas just so that they can sit back home and indulge in some kasippu!

            “Budhist leaders to take some action despite the increasing incidences of women returning abused and even as coffin-fillers”. This type of writings I always see in some CT forums. So Kumar R. can you give the figures of such abuses for the last 10 years . At least if you can give 100 cases then it worth to take some action by not only by Buddhist but also by Hindu, Christian and Muslim leaders because all those domestic helpers belongs either of these religions. If it is just few cases it is not worth mentioning it here because we always see hundreds of such cases occurring here every year.

              He had always been working and helping the Sinhala/Buddhists.
              The http://karava.org/karava_timeline celebrates Velupillai Prabhakaran the founder leader of the LTTE as a Karava Revolutionary.

              He was your man who helped to kill many Tamils, Muslims and Sinhalese and drove many of them out of the island, so that the Sinhala/Buddhist minority could own and rule the entire island.

              Incidentally those who joined the LTTE and fought for it falsely thought VP was fighting for a Tamil Eelam.

              You should honour him for winning the war for the Sinhala/BUddhists and allowing land grab.

They were not being abducted in white vans. Rather they were being taken for Prabha’s Chicken Curry meals with the suicide bombers, at the rate of dozen or so a day. Sorry Chikkkken Curry meals.

              Tell me, the rise of Prabakaran and other like minded are the same. Southern Wijeeweera and their successors also killed over 50 k youth regardless them being part of any active politics. Our fellow students left Hilda Obeysekara hall leaving their own belongings. None of them were later found live by their beloved parents and relatives. So, just to attack only Prabakarana whose rise created a civil war went up to 3 decades should not be the only example before us to brand it like that.

It looks as though you have summoned resources within you to offer us forgiveness. I’d like to accept that forgiveness on behalf of all Sinhalese people, and bles you in return. Thanks.

          N. Malathy is member of the Sri Lankan Tamil Diaspora and a
          naturalised New Zealand citizen who has lived in New Zealand for
          four decades. She holds a Ph.D. in computer science from the
          University of Canterbury in New Zealand, where she has worked as
          an analyst and programmer. She has written extensively on the
          human rights situation in Sri Lanka and also translated a short novel
          set in the Vanni context which has been accepted for publication by
          Penguin India. She spent four years in Sri Lanka, in the Vanni
          District under the control of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Elam
          (LTTE), from 2005 till 2009, a period marked by the gradual
          weakening of the 2002 Norwegian brokered ceasefire, which
          eventually led to the brutal war in which LTTE was defeated and its
          leadership killed or imprisoned. During this period she worked in
          many institutions, including a human rights body, a women’s
          organization, and an orphanage. Her experiences spanned working
          with LTTE to release child soldiers, preparing documentation for
          peace talks for the same body, documenting human rights
          violations by the Sri Lankan military and working on a project to
          raise awareness of domestic violence.

    Poor Sira,
    Even while sitting in the the President’s Chair , Sira didn’t know about Dr Ranil’s 100 Day Yahapalanaya, until Ranil’s mate vanished to Singapore.
    Sira was no where near the President ,when Solheim sent Milly and Kurchner to Airlift Pirahaparan from Nanthikadal…
    How the hell is Sira going to answer these tough questions.
    I don’t think even Dr Ranil would be much help.
    Dr Ranil and his new Assistant UNP boss Galleon Ravi thought the Armed Forces were in Pamankada and Medavachchiya.
    Didn’t they?
    BTW wonder whether Mr Thangavelu should take this list and cross check against the 12,000 LTTE Cadres who are now in productive employment in the North, Or have migrated to Sacrborough, New Jersey, East London , Oslo, and even Lourdes.

They were killed in cold blood after surrendering. Where are the bodies buried? Thangavelu please explain. Sujith Premadasa also can throw light on the matter as it was his father who ordered the policemen to surrender.

      He was also a vice president of Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) .
      Rather than asking Veluppillai Thangavelu you should be asking STF commander, Military Intelligence Chief, Dr Goat, …………………………………… and most of all former Deputy Minister Vinayagamurthi Muralitharan aka Karuna.

      How did the Military Intelligence missed former Deputy Minister Vinayagamurthi Muralitharan aka Karuna and his deputy Pillayan while he was carrying Mahinda’s b***s?

They cannot eat at the same table as the Vellalas, and they dare not walk in the shadow of a vellala as they will be polluting. Those low castes are not given Hindu rites when they die as Brahmin priests fear pollution from them. No wonde4 they call themselves Veddas.

          VP might have ordered Karuna to kill all those policemen. Since VP was the commander in chief of his armed forces he was responsible for any and all war crimes committed by his boys. However he is dead and gone. Karuna was on the ground who was responsible for his boys as the Eastern Commander of the LTTE.
          The question is why does not the state take Karuna to task? Why does not the state charge Pillayan who was Karuna’s deputy and his field commander until they split. The gun runner KP is still alive and kicking in Vanni.
          Why don’t you stupid, racist, …………Hippocratic pervert demand the state charged them for any and all war crimes committed by LTTE?

So you bloody racists are baying for Karunasena blood. You are going to be disappointed. The Sinhala nation has pardoned him for being part of the racist LTTE. So you buggers can bay till the cows come home but you won’t have a bar of him.

      Government is in the hands of the Sinhalese. It is the duty of the government to verify the position of the 600 policemen supposed to have been killed by the LTTE. If they can’t verify with the help of their pal Karuna Amman, they should bring some foreign investigators with the help of UN and set the ball rolling. If they can bring foreigners to fight the war, why not for this GOOD DEED. Incidentally while they are here, they can also look for all the missing person, may be Sinhalese, Tamils, Muslims and the army without any ‘discrimination’ at lest for once.

      •Karuna amman – Deputy Minister
      •Pillayan – Chief Minister
      •Inniyabarathy – Chief Minister

      All these jobs were created and given to these monsters by another monster called the Parayapaksa also known as MR. So Percy the numb nut, go and figure that out!!!!

      Regardless of the race, these poor policemen were there to make a living so that they can feed their families. It is a shame these monsters were given ministerial jobs and they were protected from prosecution. If I was the leader, I would have given these three monster capital punishment.

Even this happened the other way when LTTE over ran Mulliteevu military base. Majority of SL soldiers surrendered to LTTE were killed. But their bodies were handed over.

    Thangavelu,
    What happened to thousands of lightly armed/ unarmed young Sinhala youth of the JVP in 1971, and later in 1988/89, happened to the LTTE members/cadres and the missing Tamil civilians during the final days of the war.

    When Sinhala youth were killed and some bodies were burnt on ‘tyre pyres’, no one cared.
    Do you think that now there will be an investigation about the hundreds – LTTE cadres & Tamil civilians – killed while surrendering on the final days of the war?

    P.S
    One hundred and fifteen batches of Tamil civilians were butchered during 1958 to 2001 and was the reason for Tamils taking up arms.
    But that is another story.

    Mr. Thangavelu

    I used to think that we did not need foreign judges to investigate disappearances in SL, because we have many eminent judges with global experience and expertise.

    However, given the fact that our judiciary seems impotent and rife with political bias – as being exemplified in the Bond scam and all associated cases of corruption – I am starting to change my mind.

    Despite having some excellent seekers of truth and REAL human rights (those that are impartial to nationality, race, ethnicity and religion), I think we need a much more transparent, inclusive and impartial system than we have currently.

    This also means that we HAVE to investigate not just the rights abuses by the SL army against Tamil Tigers, but ALL abuse of power during the entirety of the 30-year war, including the JVP uprising, IPKF fiasco, Scandinavian monitoring bias, Indian and US meddling in our elections and politics, internecine warfare among Tamil militants, forced recruitment to the LTTE and the recruitment of children, use of suicide bombers by the LTTE, and training and the funding mechanisms for these para-militaries.

    If we can assure an IMPARTIAL and INCLUSIVE investigation to seek the truth, I will join you in pressuring the government of Sri Lanka to include foreign personnel who are IMPARTIAL and UN-IMPLICATED in our war and its aftermath.

            Native you know as well as everyone else that MR’s statement about the Human Rights Charter were the words of a politician, nobody believes them, least of all MR himself. If you take his words at face value, you are a fool.

            Regarding withdrawing from the UN, alas that is not possible, GOSL cannot be consistent as you suggest. If they withdraw, the West (mainly the USA) will find some way of punishing SL through sanctions or some other means. It suits the West to keep nations like Sri Lanka tied to high moral standards while they flout them themselves.

            I’m sure you noticed how Trump ignored N Korea’s Human Rights record when it suited him. How the USA ignores Saudi Arabia’s executions because of it’s oil and the fact that the US needs at least one Arab ally in the Middle East.

Do you think the Tamil diaspora were grateful? Not a chance. They immediately called the processing centres concentration camps and all the Western bleeding hearts jumped on the bandwagon, if you will excuse my mixed metaphors. Actually, apart from a few unemployed, vegan hippies, the bleeding hearts consisted of local politicians with a large number of Tamils in their areas.

          What Really Happened: Taraki, you are a good sort. What I am going to reveal is highly confidential information and it is only for your eyes. MR and VP had a pact. It was to destroy the Tiger organization completely and allow no other Tamil terrorist organization to come up in the foreseeable future. VP was promised SLR 50,000 for every Tamil killed. That is the reason why there were more Tamils killed by the Tigers than by all others including SL Armed Forces.
          Do you know why food was sent without break to the enemy? It was part of the pact. VP had a huge appetite which could only be satisfied by a huge organization like a government. They pretended that the food was being confiscated forcibly by VP. That was part of the ruse. Both parties knew that it was going to end up in VP’s big belly.
          On that fateful morning in Nanthikadal VP was proceeding to a pre-planned spot to be flown to Colombo by a Special Services ‘copter. But the idiot Army Pvt Nimal Maharage, with his lousy GCE qualifications of 3C + 5S got too smart and shot him like a pig. VP knew what was coming and tried to explain to Nimal in broken Sinhala to spare him. As fate would have it, one of Nimal’s Credits in GCE OL was for English Language. If VP had tried to speak in English, his life would have been spared and the fate of the country would have been different.
          But VP like all Tamils, considered the Sinhalese to be a stupid lot and paid the price for his mistake.

      Karuna was born 1966
      Karuna joined LTTE in 1983 or there about at the age of 16 years.

      If Wellawatte belonged to Sinhaleses then, but is now in Tamil hands, obviously Tamils bought them, not just occupy by force. So, obviously Sinhalese sold their lands to have kasippu then, and now they sell (actually, just rent) their Manika’s to Saudi’s for the same purpose.

          So, what you are conceding to is that the Sinhalese cannot manage without State handouts – the state has to get the land and hand over to the Sinhalese, whereas the Tamils are capable of earning to buy what they need – not just in Jaffna, but in Wellawatte or any other.

          When an item is sold, it is not lost – you got its value in cash! See any problems in your argument. You want to sell, use up the cash on kassipu, and now you want someone else (the State) to forcefully get it back and give you a hand-out? What great logic you have hand-out-Percy! With that intellect, no doubt you remain hand-out dependent!!

          State stealing the lands (forcefully occupying) in Jaffna counts as ” buying lands” in your books? Would you like the State to do that in Wellawatte too – as you guys tried repeatedly from 1956 to 1983?

          Now do you see the problem? Now do you understand why the country went to hell in a hand basket since Banda’s “Sinhala Only” policy?

          And, you guys have to depend on your Manikas to bring in the kassipu for you Sinhalese by servicing the Arabs, while the State steals to give you a place to live? What a glorious chest thumping pride for the race to celebrate?

          Do you now understand why the once peal-of-the-orient that exported doctors, accountants, engineers, and academics now have to export Manikas, reverting back to the ancestral proud traditions of “Kandyan hospitality”?

          Do you see any problem in that, hand-out-Percy?

            Hand-out-Percy,

            One other question.

            So, once the State takes the land from the Tamil owners and hands it over to you as hand-outs, what do you want to do?

            Sell it back to the Tamils for more kassipu?

            Or perhaps sell it this time to Arabs, so that your Manikas can service them right here in the country – a full circling back to the ancestral Kandyan hospitality of great pride to you and Manika?

      “When will Singhalese get back wallawatte from tamils. “

      They need a lot of money to buy them back or forget letting the houses to the Tamils in Wellawatte. One cannot have the cake and eat it too.

      “It used to be a majority Sinhala area and now it is a majority Tamil area. “

      Did the government or LTTE forced the Sinhalese to relocate from Wellawatte? The greedy owners left the area on their own volition.

      Where is shenali?

        “They need a lot of money to buy them back or forget letting the houses to the Tamils in Wellawatte. One cannot have the cake and eat it too.”

        Does that include ‘mudukkus’ too ? Most Tamils live in mudukkus not in legally purchased lands.

          Get the Colombo Planning department to clear/evict illegal occupation of any land.
          Sinhala/Buddhists are fed on free rice imported from the Moon. You should remind the squatters there is no such thing as free lunch.

          By the way when did our land become yours.
          When will we get our entire island back from Kallathonies (Tamils, Sinhalese and Muslims) ?

      At least the Tamils legally purchased lands and set up businesses in Wellawatte and other parts of the south, unlike the Sinhalese who were settled by the Sri Lankan government and armed forces on ethically cleansed Tamil lands in the north and east. Especially in the east. This is illegal. Original Tamil names Sinhalised or changed. Kantalai to Kantale. Pattipalai Aru to Gal Oya Amaparai to Ampara. Manal Aru t Weli Oya. the list goes on . When will the Tamils get these lands back? 1n 1948 Sinhalese were around 4% of the population of east, Only found in a few border villages. Tamil Hindus were the outright majority in the east . Trincomallee and Batticaloa had outright Tamil Hindu majority and coastal Amparai had a Tamil Muslim majority and the interior and deep south Tamil Hindu again. Now Sinhalese 23% and increasing due to state sponsored Sinhalese settlement on ethnically cleansed Tamil lands , that is still continuing and the Tamil population in the east 40% due to large scale killings and ethnic cleansings . When the British demarcated the north and east as Tamil provinces, these were the lands that the were 100% Tamil from ancient times and the Sinhalese had no claim whatsoever. All remote and unsubstantiated Sinhalese claims to lands in the north and east were settled in favour of the Sinhalese and these lands were removed from the north and east. Now Sinhalese are using their majority and the racist state to make false claims to Tamils lands in the north and east.

      Udarata Manika “Is wallawatte part of the Tamil home land too.”

      Now you have accepted there is a Tamil Home land.

      What constitute Tamil home land is open for negotiation. You have seen the Eelam map.

      Wellawatte is not currently claimed as a Tamil Home land. Some upcountry areas with predominantly Tamil population is also not in the Eelam map

      you seems to concede Wellawette and some upcountry areas …..as Tamil Home land
      how generous of you

    Thangavelu,

    The list of names is full of LTTE Terrorists who killed innocent civilians and held them as Human Shield and high caliber combatant of LTTE and definitely killed during the annihilation of Terrorists outfit.

    It is great surprise that you are crying for proven terrorists who were killed during the humanitarian operation of the Armed Forces of the Government of Sri Lanka.

    Instead of investigating of these hardcore Terrorist, we need to investigate about your mental health for defending and crying for proven Terrorist.

    More you talk about Terrorists for sympathy, more you go away not only from majority of the country, you will definitely go away from ordinary Tamil masses as well.

    It is disgusting to read the racist commenters, who show indifference to what we as a democratic nation did not do. Those who surrendered should have been taken into custody, and given due process, and if there is evidence to take them to court, it should have been done. To act as judge, jury, and executioner, is a shame to a nation that says it follows the rules of law, and is a democracy. Some of those who surrendered could have been innocent of any charge. Only in dictatorships do they massacre prisoners without a trial, or made to face those charges. We have stooped down to the terrorist level, by acting like them. Shame on those who were responsible for this disappearance. This is the reason why the UN and the rest of the world criticized Sri Lanka – the previous regime were acting as executioners and killing people, including Sinhalese citizens, at will. Shame.

    Veluppillai Thangavelu ~ “Mr. President, What Happened To The LTTE Cadres Who Surrendered To The Army At Vadduvakal On May 18, 2009?”
    This question will never ever get answered. Preparing fake answers is an industry.
    There was this case of a twelve years old captive. He was given some tid-bits to munch and photographed while instruction as to what to do with the prized captive. The next photograph shows the body with very close range bullet wounds.
    Answers have ranged from fake-photos through to the Wimal’s self inflicted.

    If this Thangavelu chap tells us what happened to the 600 odd policemen from the East that surrendered to the terrorists, then I am sure the President will have an answer to his question.

      thrishu : “If this Thangavelu chap tells us what happened to the 600 odd policemen from the East that surrendered to the terrorists…””… the President will have an answer to his question…”

      you are acknowledging that the President of Sri Lanka i.e the Sri Lanka state is also a terrorist organisation …..anti Tamil terrorists…”

      The history of Sri Lanka is littered with state terrorism against Tamils , Muslims for that matter any one against the “state” of the day

    Mr. Thangavelu: There is Authentic evidence to prove that the killing of LTTE was was by their own, point black shooting. AS that is happened, it is possible that there were some LTTE cadres who worked to support probably tohide information that these LTTE caders had. Because they are Fund collectors, MEdical corps, Bank officials and Political wing. IT is also known at the time of the war, Agents from evey spy agency in the world was operating in Sri lanka. YOu Tamils were playing a stupid game at that time was not careful. IF you were co-operationg at that time, Army itself would have solved the problem by identifying their bodies and wounds to identify the type of guns.
