On “Dirty Dozen” Sri Lankan War Criminals & Genocidaires

Visuvanathan Rudrakumaran -PM – TGTE

The Government of Sri Lanka is in retreat, with its tail well between its legs. The international civil society has acknowledged the extent of the atrocities on the Tamil people leading to genocide. The Human Rights Council has called for an international investigation. The UN High Commissioner for Human Rights has placed Sri Lanka on a watch list for four years. Instead of pursuing remedial justice, the chauvinist mindset of the Sri Lankan Government has sought to create smokescreens to hide its multitude of sins. Its campaign against the Tamil Diaspora which it brands as consisting of “terrorists” is misplaced. The Diaspora entities, including the TGTE, operate in accordance with the laws of the states in which they function. They consist of citizens in those states who are committed to pursue their political objectives in accordance with the laws of their home states. The Sri Lankan Government commits an illegality in branding them as “terrorists” without any proof that their activities are illegal.

When the TGTE’s Centre for the Study of Genocide releases the names of those it asserts are guilty of genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes, it makes no transgression of the law. Instead, it grounds its assertions built on credible evidence. Those who commit genocide are guilty under the domestic laws of many states. In addition, Genocide is a crime of universal jurisdiction. Every court of every state has a right to prosecute them. They are guilty under international law of the most heinous of crimes known to mankind, the killing of people on the basis of their ethnicity. They can be prosecuted before both domestic courts and international tribunals.

The TGTE is committed to ensuring that those guilty of genocide are punished. Though it focuses on the genocide of the Tamils in the island of Sri Lanka, it is mindful that the struggle involves other people in other lands. It fights their causes as well, so that they could live without fear of being persecuted on the basis of their ethnicity or religion.

Successive Governments of Sri Lanka have brought grief to Tamils through persecution from 1958 onwards. Brutality against the Tamils has spilled over into callous disregard of Muslims and Christians as well with their places of worship being targeted for attack and destruction.

The project of finding those guilty of Tamil genocide is being pursued by the TGTE and through lawful means. Today, we are releasing the names of the “Dirty Dozen,” the first batch of the lot. More names of perpetrators will follow.

The purpose of releasing these names is not for simply “naming and shaming” and the Sri Lankan perpetrators seem to enjoy immunity to such naming and shaming. As former US Supreme Court Justice Robert Jackson said in the opening statement for the Nuremberg Prosecution that the International Justice should be even handed. The clutches of the justice should target not only non-state entities but also the states. We believe that domestic prosecutions should be initiated in the various countries where they live and function. As a first step, we hope that this list will be the basis for smart sanctions in the form of travel bans and asset freezes of the individuals mentioned in the list. The list provides “reasonable grounds to believe”, as the standard required for inadmissibility to various countries, that the individuals whose names are on the list either committed or aided and abetted the commitment of international crimes.

The TGTE strongly believes that such actions constitute the necessary catharsis for change towards remedial justice, peace and accountability for all living in the island of Sri Lanka.

      “The Government of Sri Lanka is in retreat, with its tail well between its legs.

      1. Let’s be frank. The Sinhala and Tamil are Paras, Para-deshis in the land of Native Veddah who occupied the land well over 25,000 years ago when the sea levels were low.

      2.The Para-Sinhala and Para-Tamils came by Illegal boats, Hora-Oru and Kalla-Thonies from South India to the land of Native Veddah, and were fighting each other committing war-crimes against each other in order to establish their hegemony and promote their myths.

      3. The war crimes committed by the Para-Tamils led by LTTE and the para-Sinhala Sri Lanka are the latest in the Para-atrocities committed in the Land of the Native Veddah. The only difference is that now the Whole Word knows about the Para-Sinhala and Para-Tamil atrocities.

      4. It is good, to describe the “Dirty Dozen” Sri Lankan War Criminals & Genocide dairies, of the Para-Sinhala. Please include the diaries of Para-LTTE as well. The World needs to know.

      5. The arrival of Para-Sinhala and Para-Tamils is the curse of the Land of Native Veddah. It is becoming increasingly clear the only wast y to get rid of the curse is to get the Para-Sinhala and Para-Tamils and other Paras back to their Native Land South India and India.

      When will you Paras leave?

          It was all the Para who escaped from South India and India into Lanka, the Land of the Native Veddah, who is causing all this mayhem.

          The para should have stated at South India and India, and kept believing in their rebirths and reincarnations.

              Just Google Amara and siri. Veddah can pick any name they like. Amara is Greek and Persian and Siri is Scandinavian and those paras are not causing havoc in the land of Native Veddah, unlike the Para-Sinhala and Para-Tamils.

              da Silva, da Fernando, Thomas, Malinda Mahinda.Upali Lal, Perera, Gpmez, Rama, Ramacharanra, Ramachandran., Sita, Ganeshana, Padma etc. etc. are not Sinhala names. They are para Names. Just because the Sinhala or tamil Copies para names, it does not make it a Sinhla or Tamil.

              Even the Sinhala and Tamil are Para, who came from South India,

              Check the DNA. It will prove that.

              “Amarasiri your name is connected the Paras you are taking about.”

              Google Amara and Siri…

              Elu, Hela, Helu Indo Prakrit are all para- languages, that originated in India. Prakrit. Pali and Sanscrit are all related para languages.

              Irrespective of the languages of 300 BC, the fact remains, based on DNA evidence Sinhala and Tamil are Paras.

              http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elu

              he Elu language (also Hela, Helu) is the ancestral form of the Sinhala language, a Middle Indo-Aryan Prakrit of the 3rd century BCE. R. C. Childers in the Journal of the Royal Asiatic Society states:

              [Elu] is the name by which is known an ancient form of the Sinhala language from which the modern vernacular of Ceylon is immediately received, and to which the latter bears is of the same relation that the English of today bears to Anglo-Saxon…The name Elu is no other than Sinhala much succeeded, standing for an older form, Hĕla or Hĕlu, which occurs in some ancient works, and this again for a still older, Sĕla, which brings us back to the Pali Sîhala.[1]

              The Pali scholar T. W. Rhys Davids refers to Elu as “the Prakrit of Ceylon”.[2]

              http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hela_Havula

              Hela Havula? It ia actually Para-Havula

              The Hela Havula is a Sinhalese literary organization founded by Munidasa Kumaratunga in 1941. The movement advocates the replacement of Sanskritic words with Hela (native) versions. It was incorporated in 1985. Besides Munidasa Kumaratunga, other prominent members included Sunil Shantha (musician), Amarasiri Gunawadu (poet) Rev. Fr. Moses A. Perera, Raphael (Raipiyel) Tennekoon (poet), Ven. Tirikunamale Ananda Anunayaka Thera, Fr. Marcelline Jayakody (poet, hymn writer), Arisen Ahubudu (poet), Jayantha Weerasekera (journalist), Jayamaha Wellala (poet), Hubert Dissanayake (poet) Alau Isi Sebi Hela (Writer), Ven. Kodagoda Gnanaloka, Prof. Nandadasa Kodagoda (Doctor, singer, lyricist), Mohotti Don David (journalist), Prof. Vinnie Vitharana (author), W. J. M. Lokubandara (former Speaker), Sandagomi Coperehewa (teacher, author & poet), D.V. Richard De Silva (teacher, author) Anandapiya Kudathihi (journalist), Gunapala Senadeera (poet), Jayasekara Abeyruwan (Author, Notary Public)[1] and A Do Chandrasekera. The prestigious journal “Subasa” is a publication of Hela Havula.

              You may be right. But bottomline is Amarasiri is against the brutal MR regime. There I respect him above anything else.

              Besides, We have all kind of people on this forum. Worst are the unbearable kind of premates like Abhaya, Elakolla, Banda, Jsofty or other softies that go on working for MR regime.

              Abhaya seems to know the basics when attacking the young ones being killed by Brual Raja Regiments. How can they throw almost everything in one basket ?

              1 In 4 Americans Thinks The Sun Goes Around The Earth, Survey Says

              A quarter of Americans surveyed could not correctly answer that the Earth revolves around the sun and not the other way around, according to a report out Friday from the National Science Foundation.

              The survey of 2,200 people in the United States was conducted by the NSF in 2012 and released on Friday at an annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science meeting in Chicago.

              To the question “Does the Earth go around the Sun, or does the Sun go around the Earth,” 26 percent of those surveyed answered incorrectly.

              In the same survey, just 39 percent answered correctly (true) that “The universe began with a huge explosion” and only 48 percent said “Human beings, as we know them today, developed from earlier species of animals.”

              Just over half understood that antibiotics are not effective against viruses.

                Now you have given the boredom of having to teach an ignorant fool English. If you guys had called a spade a spade long ago, the country wouldn’t have faced the calamities. Greed and a mahavamsa mindset paved the way for the destruction. That spade story, if you people had applied, would have spared the country its agony.

                You should preach the monks about the heliocentric and geocentric world. They are so removed from the heliocentric world that it reflects very badly on you guys.

                Has there been any survey conducted on your subject in SL? Or on the veddas? Would be interesting? Don’t talk about the whole world when your own world is stinking??

    Anpu,

    Rudra should continue the good work. Agree.

    Do you think Rudra will include his own name as well? In this so called “list”.

    Then subject himself to travel bans and asset freezes as well.

    After all he was and is a leading monkey in the LTTE set up.

    Leading by example always wins my respect.

    Cheers!

      BH,

      “Do you think Rudra will include his own name as well? In this so called “list”. ” It is not for him to do that job. It is for others to decide and take appropriate action.

      “The LTTE did not come into being or grow into a world-class terror outfit in a vacuum. Without the Sinhala Only, the Tiger may have remained unborn. Without the Black July, the Tiger may not have grown exponentially. If the B-C Pact and the D-C Pact did not miscarry (thanks to the midwifery of Sinhala extremism), the LTTE, even if it was born, would have remained a fringe group.” – http://www.srilankaguardian.org/2011/11/oppressed-north-lawless-south.html.

      I am assuming that you know these Pacts, Black July,… and more.

        Appu,

        Sinhala only never existed or implemented as such. LTTE and Tamil racism were born with racist policy demands and indocrination of Tamils by dimwits like Ponna, Chelva and Sunda and LTTE together with racist diaspora put the icing on the racist Tamil cake. The rest is history; the Tamils who blindly followed those dimwits dug their own graves. Black July was engineered by LTTE and probably helped along too. Banda-Chelva pact and Dudley-Chelva pact failed to materialise because of unjust demands favouring Tamils within them.
        Reverse your doomed to failure strategies and open a new dialogue with the Sinhala masses to achieve your goals. Get over the racist, greedy mindset handed to Tamils by Ponna, Chelva and Sunda and all will be fine. Tamils will have to live amongst Sinhalese in the island of Sri Lanka. To live peacefully, you cannot impose your conditions (as Ponna, Chelva and Sunda tried and FAILED) on the Sinhalese. Look for a smart leader as a first step. There is peace now; enjoy.

    Rudrakumaran talks of ‘Dirty Dozen’ he was almost de listed by US legal service for misappropriation of client funds. He has no morals, decency or family values. He talks of Tamil rights but, he is barred from entering most counties in Asia and may not be allowed re entry to United States. Lot of Tamils who sought his advice are languishing in US prisons.

      That is only a story. He was censured because he took cases more than he can help. It is the TGTE’s policy to help all the refugee cases approach them. They don’t want to say “see somebody else”. Remember, they don’t just provide legal representation and bugger off. This Prime Minister-ship itself is a big work overload for him. The judge who censured him praised him for his helping attitude. But warned him even as help, not to overload him on legal matters. Everybody knows that government advertisement tried to degrade him. But none of them are true.

      Is he allowed to enter Sri Lanka?

      “He has no morals, decency or family values.”

      As a lawyer he is following the Sri Lankan tradition. Remember he was at law college in Colombo where these standards don’t apply.

        Except that an Englishman can be extradited to the US simply on the demands of the US judiciary, without any need for proof. The reverse, however, does NOT apply. UK citizens have become mere colonists today.

        The UK has been in the habit of granting residence/citizenship on the strength of the funds being brought in. Many a Nigerian crook found safe haven there long before the Russian and the East European crooks arrived there for the same purpose. Again any terrorist could seek asylum there because he was unsafe at home, and has NOT committed a crime in the UK. This has happened with many a Chechin, among multiple other nationalities who have committed atrocities in their own lands.

      So one lawyer has changed and trying to seek justice, the other too a lawyer by designation “whether passed the Bar or not is subjective” has changed from a HR defender to accused war criminal.

    Prime Minister Rudra has all rights to say whatever he thinks right. None of the westerns democracies going to stop him from doing that. Only remedy for Lankan royals is to bring a legal action in the courts wherever he released his statements.

    If anyone of you think that these are not true why don’t you bring a case in one of the courts of the countries where ever TGTE has a legal base. Come on guys!You guys don’t like extra few pennies in your pockets.

    You know what will be the result if you bring a legal action by mistake. So all what you can do is blame CT for bring to light the shameful action of the royal government and its coolies.

Having been pinned down by an international investigation, it certainly looks like you got your wish, and indeed they have “delivered the goods”. Rudra is only part of a collective. When MR was dragged to a court in the US, he shamefully hid behind the head-of-state immunity instead of arguing his case out and proved to be a coward. Anyway, Rudra’s list is just the beginning.

        Paul:

        Well! Prime Minister Rudra Visuvanathan is described by many news media as Eelam Tamils’ “Prime Mister in Exile”. Because of the Army may kill them if they vote, he has not asked Tamils in north and east to vote for him. So he does not use the Title of Prime Minister in Exile. He ask the diaspora in the in the free countries to vote for him. It is hard for you to understand some of the words like “Free”, Democracy”. Just leave that alone. Tamils do not need Mahavamsa Buddhist royal to rule them like you need the King Kong. Not just Toilet cleaner anybody can become prime mister. Remember? a Christian layer was their leader for 30 years. As long they are lawyers or educated like Prime Minister Rudra that is enough for them. You know the truth, don’t you? None in your royal dynasty has completed even Lankan Law College. Prime Minister Rudra is Howard Lawyer. After studying like that, it does not matter whether he is cleaning the Toilet or cutting grass in the lawn.

        Yet prime minister is a free citizen in a Western Democracy. You know your Royal King Kong is Chinese slave. I do not know if this has already appeared in the newspapers you read. Today news is that Rampu said because of the fear of Modi’s arrival, our cleaner Kong had not gone to Shanghai for some time. The toilets smelled a lot. Jin Ping became mad. So the Kong is rushing today on a plane to wash Beijing toilets”

        Read some other news too man.

    Mr. Sumanasekara seems to be unnecessarily emotional.If he pays attention to facts he will have to agree that there is no evidence against any violence by Rudrakumaran. He was only the lawyer for LTTE. He is well respected in the Law Society and State Dept in the USA. He was involved in protest against Sinhala-Buddhist aggression even before LTTE was started. He is the son of a former mayor and democratic leader of Jaffna.

      I am sure the mafia godfathers, lesser creatures compared to terrorists, do not commit violence either, but ONLY provide the wherewithal needed to do so, but yet are sent to jail for long periods of time.

        Ram,

        “I am sure the mafia godfathers, lesser creatures compared to terrorists, do not commit violence either.”

        Where are you coming from? Don’t get confused. This not a talk about Jeyaratne, whose office is there to issue releases for drug containers. We are talking about PM Rudra Visuvanathan.

    Congratulations to attorney Rudrakumar and the TGTE,.
    Only two US citizens in this list. US courts have full jurisdiction on US citizens. But who among the Tamils will take legal action in US courts against the 2 US citizens??????????????

      Donald Gnanakone,

      “who among the Tamils will take legal action in US courts against the 2 US citizens?”

      Why don’t you set an example by taking legal action against yourself? In the US itself.

      Why not play “hero”? Go on then! Expose yourself to an asset freeze. Get your US passport impounded. It will be so much fun!

      None of the above would be difficult given your track record of backing the LTTE.

      Very good luck to you.

      Cheers!

        Bayagullah Bun Hurling!
        Obviously You have no bloody idea of Tamil-Singhala history in Sri Lanka or the USA.
        My US Passport and citizenship cannot be touched by any mothers son of Sinhala origin. That right is only with the US authorities. Please remember that. There are NO bloody Kangaroo Courts like in Sri Lanka in the USA.
        As for my Assets in Sri Lanka it was acquired,(land) burnt, looted, stolen by greedy Sinhalese and blood thirsty M….. F….. and >>>>>>>>s 31 years ago. That was done by the UNP ministers like Premadasa, Acidat-Mudali, and others. Not the Rajapakses or Bandaranayakes who were not even in Parliament in 1983 except Anura B. (In fairness to that fellow, he was never vindictive or vicious like these war criminals and others. May he RIP).

        FYI, my Container Freight Station in the heart of Colombo was acquired by the above mentioned ministers and Paskaralingam as Chairman of the UDA without compensation even after 31 years. My containers trucks, lorries, fork lifts were burnt and no compensation was paid. These were not 1 or 2, but more than 2 dozens.

        But Karma is something these B’s can never cheat. I am sure you buggers are aware how Premadasa, Acidatmudali, Gamini, Ranjan W and so many other ministers and MP’s, and Generals et al died without even being unable to find their bones.

        So please remember people like us are not threatened by real or idle threats, by idiotic bayagullah’s like you. That only shows your cowardice and breeding or lack thereof.

        Unlike in 1983, global assets of US citizens are protected by the US government immaterial whether they are Tamils, Sinhalese or Muslims. At the same time US citizens who are war criminals come under the US jurisdiction and courts. And there is no time bar for war crimes and crimes against humanity. FYI, they need not be alive to be investigated, or prosecuted. The same issue for corruption and tax evasion by US citizens who steal and conduct day light robbery in foreign countries other than in USA. Yes, the UNP and the Singhalese paid very dearly for the few weeks of 1983 July riots. Lessons Learnt???? and now looking for Reconcilliation for the 1983 crimes which was only decades later a Singhala President apologized for political reasons. See what has happened to her now under her own party President for the past 10 years.

        Tamils For Justice was formed in 2007 and attorney Bruce Fine was hired to perform particular tasks and at that time Robert Blake was US Ambassador in Colombo.

        So please get it into your thick nameless skull, that these UN HRC resolutions did not suddenly appear in the sky or Geneva for the pass 3 years. The TGTE WC lists is just like Rip Van Winkle waking up after 5 years after the Genocide and putting out a list, like the Shindler’s list. What matters is real legal action.

        Why that did materialize for the past 6 years is another story for a different time, and the blame totally falls on the Tamil diaspora,. The people who matter know WT… I am talking about, which people with “peanut brains” will not understand or ever comprehend.

        Anyway, the wheels of justice is always slow to turn but it will always catch up with the common criminals, including war criminals and bribery/corruption. Even, if they sometimes cheat and get away, please remember Karma is a Bitch. Don;t you ever forget that even when you are hiding under bogus names like another bayagullah.

        There will be a 4th UNHRC resolution next March in 2015.
        Meanwhile there is a nice warm/hot reception for any war criminals who will visit Delhi next week. Keep Watching foreign news and not the Daily Noice or Rupavahini where the modayas are fooling many more Modayas. Try grow a spine BH.

          Donald Gnanakone,

          I do not condone any of the injustices meted out to you and your family. Just because you were Tamil Sri Lankans.

          I believe what had happened to you at the hands of corrupt, racist SL politicians to be true.

          If you are fighting to rectify those horrific wrongs, I am with you. More than 100%.

          I would ask you never to give up your fight in this regard. Until the state fully compensates and punishes all racist criminals involved in the ’83 riots. Even post humous.

          However, if those despicable crimes against Tamil Sri Lankans such as you are used as a cover to promote preverted ethno-Tamil nationalism, which is worse than Sinhalese extremism expect to be challenged by people like us. Along the way.

          Cheers!

            Your gracious response is accepted, Bayagullah Ben Hurling.
            The origin of the civil war virtually began only in 1983 although many incidents prior to that had occurred and later escalated.

            As for assets, God has well provided me with many blessings throughout my life. So I am not worried too much. Tamils like Jews in 1930’s and 40’s under the Nazis have suffered much more physically and mentally and perished under tragic circumstances. But God took good care of those who survived similar to most of the Tamil diaspora, who ironically remit nearly 3 Billion dollars into SL in foreign exchange annually.

            The current GOSL is fooling the people (mainly Singhala) by talking about terrorism to justify the war crimes and genocide. They cannot fool the world any more. Trust me it took a long time. India also cannot be fooled now that there a new governments in India and Tamil Nadu. BTW, today is Rajiv Gandhi’s death anniversary.

            Unfortunately it is only hurting the people of Sri Lanka, while a few crooks in SL have become multi billionaires and still continue to be stealing on a daily basis. So high time the Singhalese to wake and see the reality in life. Sri Lanka will only prosper if the Sinhala government and people make peace with the Tamils. Learn from the Nazis, and the Japanese.

            Justice will eventually prevail.

            Good Luck.

              Donald you are one of the few guys who can provide meaningful/thought provoking ideas and facts to this worthy forum , so if you can , just share some of your thoughts and views about SL’s future , how do you see the out come of 2014 Geneva resolution going to effect on the regime ? what about this easy route of noncomplying nonsense which regime seemed to have adapted as a scapegoat , going to work before the International community ? what are the real motivations behind USA’s actions on SL ? does USA really want to see a truly democratic sri lanka ? which way would the New Indian PM Modi’s influence going to swing ? how about 2015 Geneva resolution ?

              Cheers Donald.

                @Sri Lal.
                With this regime of Ali Baba and 100 ……Sri Lanka has no future other than a mountain of debts which has to be repaid by all 22 million citizens including the Tamils. Of course one can argue that countries like Zimbabwe and Burkina Faso have survived for decades. Both the Sudans and Ethiopia/Eritrea have also survived.

                I support the regimes non cooperation with the UNHRC on the investigations. That will make things easier for those who worked very hard to start US and UN/IC investigations even before the Genocide of 2009 took place.

                As for UNHRC resolutions, it has no teeth, but will only expose the war crimes committed and some of the individuals who were responsible. All that will take years while Sri Lanka rots, and people suffer. There is no need for GOSL to spend $2.2 Billion dollars on defense, 5 years after the end of the war, while the total exports are $10 Billion. It is crazy. So the non existent LTTE is still costing Sri Lanka billions of dollars every year. And when will that end?

                Fancy roads/highways, ports and airports in Hambantota wasting billions of dollars (4 B) is going to be a permanent burden on SL. These are just a few examples. What percentage of the population have cars to travel on these highways. The CTB and Railways are operating at huge losses for decades. Will the losses be more in the future as they expand. Even the 2 Airlines are loosing billions every year, and does SL need 2?

                There is no national carrier for Shipping whereas 40 years ago there was a big fleet which should have expanded by now. CSC made good profits those years and gave lots of employment and future carriers. Can one place uneducated Massinas (BIL) to operate international airlines or the foreign ministry?

                I won’t discuss the bribery and corruption which all of you guys know.

                The key to the future of SL is to make Peace with the small Tamil population in the NP, EP and possibly WP. The little benefit the Tamils in Malai Nadu have got in the past 4 decades is due to the Tamil militants strength. But they are still in poverty and zero political power without any recognition. No world leader like British PM or Modi are going to visit there.

                SL has to make peace with the IC to bring stability, and real investments into the country. If both happens under reduced corruption the Tamil diaspora alone would bring in not the current 3 Billion dollars but 6 or 7 Billion annually. Now all these funds are wasted in consumption increasing the GDP in the NE Provinces and government claims that it is due to development!!

                US at the highest levels have good intentions for the whole country. It has no vested interest or jealousies as the Rajapakses claims in Sri Lanka. That is simply insane on the regime’s part. It is essential that GOSL wins the good will of the West and the East and everyone else will follow. To make the 22 million people prosperous is an easy task like what Singapore did. But there has to be honest leaders and efficient administration.

                As for Modi is concerned, he carries no baggage and guilt complex like the Gandhis or the IPKF. He is a strong Hindu and will not tolerate any nonsense or insults. Trust me he is very well briefed. And so will the new FM and senior ministers.

                He also has to satisfy the Tamil Nadu people which is 66 million and placate the South. Jayalalitha and the TN is going to boycott the inauguration ceremonies, and CM Wigneswaran is not interested in a free ride and parties in Delhi. Tamils want meaningful dialog and actions. MR can take Weerawansa and the JHU for the function.

                Important fact is Modi will realize the Tamil sentiments cannot be ignored which he did not intend to do. So before he even begins he and the BJP will realize what a huge baggage and burden Rajapakse is. And the whole world also will. Both DMK and AIAMK are both united on this matter. BJP needs the full cooperation of the opposition in Rajya Sabha to administer the country, (Passing Bills)despite the huge majority in the lower house.

                @Sri Lal, I do not have any intent to keep the readers well informed on important issues regularly in the future. These few responses are not going to be regular. Anyway I have just graced the surface without touching on sensitive matters which goes on in Colombo, Delhi, Washington and elsewhere.

                For the country’s sake I hope there is a regime change or else all are doomed and sadly will sink together “literally”. Even the balance Galle Face will be sold to the Chinese or Casino owners.

                Best Wishes to all.

                  Donald ,

                  Thanks for your response , as you said most of the corruptions, underhand dealings , extra judicial killings etc etc are daily routines of the regime and there is no need to dwell on those public secrets any more ! rather , i am interested in exploring/scrutinizing US involvement in SL affairs , yes i agree with you , Obama may be a decent person with genuine ideas but does his administration/opposition (republican ) have the same intentions as Obama does ? it always baffles me to see the inaction of US authorities on her own citizens , point in case ,when those very people who are being accused of war crimes and corruptions are/were in the US soil and falls/fell under their direct jurisdiction , US authorities fail/failed to react appropriately ! why did the US take this time consuming , expensive Geneva (UNHRC)track to redress the SL crimes , when they have the option of relatively less time consuming/inexpensive tailor made mechanism in place ? why did US Embassy in Colombo issue visas to Mr (BBS Thero) Gnasara ? it has been reported and exposed by Wiki leaks that Robert o Blake was also assisting/providing logistical/material support to SL in 2009 massacre ! the latest drama of extending the support for MR led regime by US senators , don’t you think US is contradictory and somewhat ambiguous on SL affairs ?

    They didn’t let Praba to surrender or escape , instead put him into a trap made by Sinhala army..

    you guys can cray every year till you die without realizing f**ing eelam dream.. We will see same cry for international investigation on year 2020s ,2030s,2040s ++++

      I feel you have not grasped the pre-war situation, where US/India
      assisted MR fully on the verbal understanding that he will resolve
      the National issue, (upon which the Tigers were created), once the
      undemocratic Movement is eliminated. Even with 5 yrs. NOTHING is
      visible to US/India in this direction and with 3 Resolutions and LLRC!
      Further links with China is another irritant – a common “rival” of
      both US/India. SL is now between the devil & the deep sea?

      It now reveals one thing – a hidden agenda of MR & cabal. With time, the tamil community is being enslaved, however a Tamil diaspora will NOT lie low – this aspect was not foreseen by The Regime of 3 Bros., similar to permitting camera-phones in the battle without-witnesses in the front-line (slip-up of Rohana G advises). Therefore TGTE will have an upper-hand as we are dealing with Society in the 21st century!

      Anpu,

      You may have a point about Gota.

      However, Sri Lanka’s greates war criminal is not Gota. It is VP. Your hero.

      Your kind of blatantly selective finger pointing & justice, based on racist politics is one big reason, why we are stuck in this bottomless pit.

        BH,
        VP is my NOT hero.
        International investigation will determine who committed the war crimes.

        I am not a racist. But suffered under Sinhalese racism.

        Who is behind this racist politics?

        “… Sir Ponnambalam Ramanathan’s entry into public life was at the instance of Maraithiru Arumuga Navalar in 1879. In 1911, he was chosen as candidate to contest and fill the vacancy that arose in the legislative assembly for the All Ceylon Educated Members seat. He was elected. The other contesting candidate was a member of the Sinhala community. The Sinhala Muslim riots take place in the year 1915. The Governor declared martial law. This was harsh. Ramanathan at the behest of his compatriots left for the United Kingdom. The voyage was in the submarine infested waters (of World War I) and his truimphant return was celebrated with a lot of fanfare by being hand drawn in a “Vel Cart – Ther” by the then Sinhala leadership.

        However, within a period of four years he recognised that events were moving in a direction he did not agree with. In 1919, Sir Ponnambalam Arunachalam, his younger brother was elected as President of the Ceylon National Congress. As is the eastern tradition Sir Ponnambalam Arunachalam sought his brothers’ blessings to which Sir Ponnambalam Ramanathan cautioned him and said “Thamby go ahead, but take care you will presently meet with a storm which will hurl you off the chair”. “
