On The Situation In The North & East: An Open Letter To UN HR Chief

By Brian Senewiratne

UN High Commissioner for Human Rights
Palais des Nations
CH-1211 Geneva 10,
Switzerland

Excellency,

Sri Lanka: The situation in the North and East

I am a Sinhalese from the majority community in Sri Lanka. My cousin, Chandrika Kumaratunga was a former President. I am one of a very few Sinhalese, in or outside Sri Lanka, to campaign for the cause of the Tamil people to live with equality, dignity and safety in the country of their birth. I have done so since 1948 when a million Plantation Tamils (one seventh of the total population of the country at that time) were disenfranchised and decitizenised in one of the most outrageous acts of political savagery in any country..

In 1956 I strongly opposed the discrimination against the Indigenous Tamils when my uncle, Prime Minister S.W.R.D Bandaranaike, changed the Official Language from English to Sinhalese only.

In 1972, then as a Senior Lecturer in Medicine in Sri Lanka, I strongly objected to Prime Minister Sirima Bandaranaike, my aunt, when she set the bar higher for Tamil students to enter the University because it was clearly discriminatory. I was witness to this discrimination

Over the next 4 decades I have addressed scores of meetings across the world to highlight the deteriorating human rights of the Tamil people. The back cover of my recently published book Sexual Violence of Tamils by the Armed Forces which I enclose, gives more details.

I also enclose one of the nine dvds recorded by me, “Sri Lanka. Genocide, Crimes against Humanity, Violation of International Law” which details the war crimes committed which have to be investigated.

I am very concerned about the plight of the Tamils in the North and East despite a change of Government in Sri Lanka from Mahinda Rajapaksa to Maithripala Sirisena on 8 January 2015. Although this has resulted in major changes in the Sinhalese South, I am far from convinced that it has made the slightest difference to the Tamils in the North and East – the homeland of the Tamils.

To summarise my concerns:

1. President Sirisena says that the Army (overwhelmingly Sinhalese) will stay in the Tamil areas. Since the Army has been responsible for most of the violations of human rights of the Tamil people, including sexual violence and torture, I cannot see how the situation can change.

2. Internationally credible human rights organisations such as Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch will not be allowed into the country. This cannot be justified.

3. The Prevention of Terrorism Act which has been condemned by every Human Rights group will not be withdrawn.

4. The Rome Statute will not be signed. Sirisena stated this in his ‘100 day’ program and tried to justify the unjustifiable. As such, those responsible for war crimes cannot be taken before the International Criminal Court.

5. President Sirisena has recently appointed General Jagath Dias, the former commander of the 57th Division, who was responsible for attacks on civilians and the bombing of hospitals’, schools, places of worship and a whole host of other war crimes, as the Army Chief of Staff – one of the most important posts in the Army.

6. Despite assurances that members of his party who are being investigated by the Financial Crime Investigation Unit will not be nominated for the up-coming General Election, President Sirisena has done so and claimed that he had no control over these nominations. That is nonsense since he is the leader of the party.

7. There is increasing evidence that the former President Mahinda Rajapaksa is staging a come back and that a coalition with President Sirisena is a possibility. The Sri Lankan people did not vote for a Sirisena-Rajapaksa government.

There is no doubt that unless there is an International investigation into the major violation of human rights, especially in the closing stages of the armed conflict in May 2009, there will be no justice. If there is no justice to bring the culprits to book, there will be no reconciliation.

Your record sets you out as someone in search of truth and justice, as was your distinguished predecessor, Navanethem Pillay. The question is what will be done at the September 2015 meeting of the UN HRC when the situation in Sri Lanka is taken up.

I am absolutely convinced, as are many others, that a domestic investigation will achieve nothing. I draw your attention to the outstanding 60-page publication by Amnesty International (AI), “Twenty Years of Make-believe: Sri Lanka’s Commissions of Inquiry”. There is absolutely no evidence that this has changed. If it had, then AI would have issued another Report that the situation has changed, The very fact that Amnesty International, a Nobel Laureate, Human Rights Watch and International Crisis Group have been denied entry into Sri Lanka despite a change of Government, is evidence that nothing as changed.

As you know, in March 2014, the UN Human Rights Council decided to set up a UN investigation into war crimes in the closing stages of the war.

Sri Lanka refused point blank to cooperate, and questioned the integrity of the investigation, and claimed that you, High Commissioner Zeid, had used ‘intemperate language’.

Let me quote from what you said in response:

“A wall of fear has been created that has undoubtedly served to deter people from submitting evidence. Such a refusal does not, however, undermine the integrity of an investigation set up by Council – instead it raises concerns about the integrity of the government in question. Why would governments with nothing to hide go to such extraordinary lengths to sabotage an impartial international investigation?”

Excellency, as you yourself stated clearly and unequivocally, what is needed is an’ impartial international investigation’.

Yours sincerely

Brian Senewiratne

    Yes.

    The Sinhala are Paras, Paradeshis, just like the Tamils. BOTH the Para-Sinhala and Para-Tamils are racists.

    They are the curse of Lanka, the Land of Native Veddah Aethho.

    Both the Para-Sinhala and Para-Tamils, do not belong in the Land of Native Veddah Aethho. They should all get back to India, their original Para-Land.

    See what some of these Para have done…, among many war crimes and atrocities since Independence…the list is too long…

    Forgotten People – The Evicted and Displaced North Muslims of Sri Lanka (English)

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9JV60McNQ9o

    Published on Jun 1, 2013
    The Evicted and Displaced North Muslims of Sri Lanka. The expulsion of the Muslims and other nations from the Northern province was an act of ethnic cleansing carried out by the Tamil militant Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) organization in October 1990. In order to achieve their goal of creating a mono ethnic Tamil state in the North Sri Lanka, the LTTE forcibly expelled the 72,000 strong Muslim population from the Northern Province.

      “Cousin”, “Aunt”, “Uncle”, etc. Of course, an ill-bred waco of the il-legitimate Dad of SWRD. Oh, that poor Rikshaw man!

      Amarasiri spelled out a few atrocities committed by the LTTE but not all. LTTE killed over hundred thousand sinhalese. Your cousin’s Australian wife grabbed little sinhala babies by their legs and bashed their heads on the mud hut walls. Where the F**K hell were you then?

      Your distorted pedigree, Brian, does not give a legitimate right to write to the Saudi in Geneva unless you want a free trip to Geneva at the expense of those killed by your own LTTE cousins. People who know who you are still among the living. They also know the pedigree of your cousin, aunt and uncle — my foot.

      Forget about your degrees and doctorates. Just get back to civilization, Man.

      The Saudi in Geneva will use your letter as his toilet paper.

        Dear Dr. Brian Senewiratne,

        Anyone who is conversant with Tamil politics can ask you a 101 questions that will expose you as a fraud.

        You have not raised a finger when the OPPRESSED Tamil polity (over 80% of the Tamil Population) was struggling to get out of the OPPRESSIVE and INHUMAN SLAVERY they were subjected to, by the very people you are have chosen to support.

        If you you had championed the cause of the oppressed we would like to hear from you to clear the air.

        I will refrain from going into the details for the moment and instead ask you about the POLICY of the TGT Eelam.

        You are a MEMBER of the Hypothetical Eelam Govt (sic) and hold the position of a Senator.

        What is the POLICY of your govt (sic) towards Ms Adele Balasigham, a war criminal, who trained and Commissioned at least a 100,000 TAMIL Children, as soldiers, for the LTTE (most of who are dead), which is a GRAVE War Crime under the Rome Statute.

        These children were ABDUCTED and FORCIBLY taken from their Tamil parents.

        According to the UN, even the number 8000 is minute. Please see the BBC interview with Mr. J Aguilar of UNICEF for confirmation. Watch from 3:28 onwards http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4gXbFPoDWSI

        Mr. Aguilar says that they have reports of about 8000 missing children. He also states that this is just a minute fraction of what went on (4:20 onwards). He also states that during the last 6 months at least 200 children per month were taken from their parents for the war effort including 9 year olds (4:38 onwards).

        From the above, it can be seen that, Ms Adele Balasigham is responsible for training and commissioning at least a 100,000 Tamil Child Soldiers in the time span of three decades. Many of them are now dead.

        If you have not seen her supervising the commissioning by awarding a cyanide capsule this video will enlighten you.

        In the video footage below, Adele and Anton Bala explains what the cyanide capsule symbolises. The video shows Adelle participating in commissioning new recruits by decorating their young necks, with a Cyanide Capsule Necklace. It leaves no room for doubt about Adelle’s War Crimes.
        .
        https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aqbj8PHTtHY
        .
        I hope you can enlighten us, as your colleague TGT Eelam Senator, Ms Usha S Sri-Skanda-Rajah, from whom the same question was asked, is observing a Deafening Silence on the matter.

        Kind Regards,
        OTC

      Reading lots of these comments are a waste of time. Most of those who jumped to write the comments about the above article are guilty, ashamed & want to hide their inhumane nature. Tamils are only asking for Truth & Justice. Why are the Sinhalese so scared to face it?

    It’s pretty dodgy when you rely on an AI publication to support your argument when they are so blatantly politically motivated, bias and target countries that suit the US foreign policy. I also find it quite disturbing that there is no mention of the LTTE. You know the group which also made substantial breaches of human rights? That’s like talking about the rights of Irish Catholics in Northern Ireland and only talking about the human rights abuses by the British government and not the IRA. Call a spade a spade. Otherwise human rights will again be tangled up in politics like it is now.

      True, but you can’t equate the violence of the oppressor with that of the oppressed fighting back paraphrasing Nelson Mandela.

      This is like accusing a victim of rape who is fighting back of being ‘equally ‘ responsible foe violence.
      Violence against the Tamils by Sinhalese mobs began in the 1950’s including he horrendous 1958 pogrom. Prabhakaran or for that matter none of the other militants were not even born !
      What say to that -the Sinhalese political class is solely responsible for the carnage
      Its not only Amnesty International-how about other institutions like Medicine Sans Frontier. For that matter AI has been critical of the US as well.

      I am sure you are relying on some opinion poll. Could you cite your source. However this can be also construed as Genocide, the final solution, as part of your Sinhala/Buddhist hidden agenda, making the entire island into to Sinhala/Buddhist ghetto.

        ◾”Although the majority of Tamils and Muslims across Sri Lanka want a unitary state a significant minority of Tamils from the Northern Province still want to keep the ‘right to secession’. However most of them will give this up for the complete ‘package’ of APRC reforms.”

    Brian’s article with facts, will not be palatable for the Sinhala Chauvinists or for the false Patriots. However it is commendable to note being a Singhalese that Brian Seneviratne possesing Human qualities trying to recognize all as equal in this day and age. If this is not civility I wonder what is?

    Great work Brian keep it up, it is your prerogative and I know there are many more Sinhalese, Buddhists who believe so, but are fearful in expressing due to the militancy of some who peddle the majority, just to sustain them politically for Power.

      Many Sinhalese as well as Buddhists would agree with you.

      The one obvious problem is that they would be branded as traitors, a word that is too liberally used in political contexts.

    Good on you doctor,

    Keep fighting for the poor Tamils in the North who were used and discarded by the Vellalas in Colombo.

    Now the Vellala Party TNA who have claimed total ownership of the North does not want to accommodate the CFD,

    In fact the TNA calls them “Untouchables” according to the Ceylon Today issue in Colombo.

    I am not sure what the Vellala party meant by that term , because these CFD dudes are the real LTTE cadres whose leader was even White Vanned, according to their Web page.

    And they have denounced Terrorism openly and decalared that they are 100 % democratic now.

    Perhaps you should use connections with your High Roller cousins in the Govt , include the CFD as part of the new United National Front of Ranil.

    In fact Ranil is his inaugural speech of the UNF GG declared that full Devlution to the North and the East is his top priority in the New Government.

    You wouldn’t want the TNA to become sole ownrs of those two independent Provincial Govts, when Vellala Sambandan didn’t want any of the Untouchables in his TNA.

    BTW , our unelected PM must be your Cousin too…

    Dear Dr Seneviratne

    You should be glad to hear that Mahinda Rajapakse is making a comeback. Many of my friends, who are avowed Eelamists and die-hard Separatists, are rejoicing in anticipation.

    Anyone with half a brain would know that with Rajapakse at the helm (he’ll give the short shrift to Sirisena, no doubt), the LTTE/Eelamists/Separatists will be in the best position possible to canvass the support of Western powers for the establishment of a separate state in a combined North and East. And this time around India will remain neutral. Anyone who understands geopolitical realities will know that China wouldn’t do anything that would imperil its long term interests.

    Further, Rajapakse and the BBS alienated the Moslems. Many Muslims in the East are coming round to the notion that they would do better off in a separate Tamil speaking N-E state.

    So, Dr Seneviratne, be patient. You will have your Eelam delivered to you and your friends on a platter. Even Mr Vigneswaran and many in the TNA are also waiting in anticipation for a Rajapakse victory.

    The racist elements of the Sinhala-Buddhist masses think Rajapakse family will never allow that to happen. Little do they know that the Rajapakses are using their gullibility to win power – and that is their one and only objective. When Eelam becomes a reality, the Rajapakses will vanish (to US, UK, Canada or Australia).

    And the stupid Sinhalese, led by their corrupt Buddhist monks, would wonder what on earth happened to their glorious Mahawansa Sinhale!

    You are a TRUE Human Rights Activist not me. Though I try in a small way , my knowledge and ability
    is nowhere near yours.

    I know how hard it is for you to continue the good work considering your age.

    But I know you very well DR you are a fighter and you will fight even in your last breath.

    Thank you very much for all the good work you have done and you are going to do
    to fight for Human Rights.

    May God Bless you,Sir, to live long for the sake of the suffering.

    What a distortion of history.. State Tamils were brought to SL as day labourers by British same as people now work in Middle East .. They were temporary labour force as long as law is concen. Period .
    Disgusting issue is not about them returning back to India but treatment of remaining state Tamils that bring foreign exchange to Sl . It is downright slavery and British and successive SL govt should be shamed for this issue…

    Dr B S

    Uncle, Aunty, Cousin, all with dubious political reputations. So why do you claim the relationship in your important missive? Does it give you some sort of badge of honour in posing as an outcast of the family circle? Your long and plaintive campaign is well known, and that surely speaks for itself without constantly referring to your relationship to those who have been persistent in presenting our Tamil brethren as an expendable community – just like all the other minor communities that are destined by circumstances to share this blessed island with the Sinhalese.

    NONE of the present Sinhalese political leaders will accede to the Rome statute and they will take every step to prevent those charged with answerable crimes to face inquiry. To do so will spell political suicide. The GOSL tactic of wearing down the UNHRC will continue.

    Currently, Tamil leaders are making the best of the situation in Sri Lanka; and their work is in the here and now, and the tomorrow.

    Dr BS, by all means continue to fire off letters to all those that you think can do something to advance the cause of justice, whose wheels grind slowly but surely. There are worse ways to spend a well-earned retirement.

    Dr Brian Senivirutne is not a Madanamutta for sure. He is a highly qualified physician having much coveted qualification such as Doctor of Medicine (MD)and Member of the Royal College of Physician (MRCP) of United Kingdom and Australia. No one can challenge him for intellectual superiority. The points he addressed to the UNHRC head is 100% fact.

    When compared to Dr Carlo Fonseka’s, another Sinhalese (though name sound Portugese)logic of supporting the HR violator Mahinda Rajapakse, Dr Brian sounds a rationalist.

    Anyway when one community annihilate another community for whatever reasons the only best thing to is to have an International Inquiry rather than allowing the perpetrator of the HR violations to hold a biased inquiry. Dr Brian had pointed out how many inquiries conducted by Sinhalese governments on matters connected with HR violations and murder of Tamils had been shelved or thrown into the bin.

    You seem to want to achieve two purposes by writing this letter.

    1. Do you want to portray yourself as a someone belonging to the royal family .

    2 Is it your intention to present yourself as the most hiuman Sinhala intellectual and show your distinction.

    If it is your intention to support the. A use of Tamils you do not need to refer to your cousins, uncles and aunts
    In the ruling class. This seems a very cheapublicity.

    You should have gained more respect if you had not made this immature reference to your connection with Bandaranayakas.

You’ve never been in politics with Chandrika or Sirimavo from either the Banda or Ratty side

    First things first: declare your so called relationship, “cousin ” status to her. You are NOT a first cousin period fullstop . Then are a second cousin of the Bandaranaike Side ? An Alwis ? A Ehaliyagoda? You should STOP YOUR LYING AND CLAIMS TO BR CLOSELY RELATED TO HER .

    *** I commmend you for what you have written and you are a GEM.
    Normally I go through point by point and try to pick holes but yours is Water Tight and this is a timely divine intervention coming from some one of you calibre and orgin. I have already said that we also owe a sense of Gratitude to your cousin CBK. I dont know much about your past other than what you have narated.
    But I am personally Eternally Grateful for your intervention and I am sure most of the Tamils are and even if you have any fautls ( as I sense from some comments ) for me the message is important not the messengers Human Fragility. Judging from the comments posted so far it is obvioius that you will receive the record number of vicious attacks on your chracter and intergrity but it is up to the Moderator to protect your honour and intergrity.
    I was begining to lose faith in the ability of the Majority to give serious meaning to Recconcilation but you have injected a New Life. After all there is life after Death.
