Only An International Independent Investigation Can Secure Truth And Accountability – GTF To South Africa And Switzerland

By Colombo Telegraph

“GTF emphasised that only an international, independent investigation can secure truth and accountability, as recommended by the UN Panel of Experts in their report, in order to lay the foundations for meaningful reconciliation between all communities in Sri Lanka. In this regard, GTF will continue to engage internationally until justice is served.” says Global Tamil Forum.

 

Suren Surendiran GTF

Global Tamil Forum (GTF) delegation led by Rev Father S J Emmanuel met with officials from the Republic of South Africa and Switzerland on 23rd and 24th September 2012, respectively, as part of the its on-going engagement with international governments to highlight the enduring persecution of the Tamil people in Sri Lanka.

Issuing a press statement GTF media spokesman Suren Surendiran says ” GTF reiterated that we believe in achieving a negotiated political settlement for decades long national conflict through a process of dialogue and engagement. In this respect we are encouraged that as reported in the media recently, the Indian Prime Minister has emphasised the urgency to President Rajapaksa in achieving lasting political solution to the Tamil national question.

    Finally Tamil diaspora is firmly placing pressure on the IC for investigations which Tamils For Justice and it’s attorney has been calling for since 2008..

    Silva report will not accomplish anything and the Rajapakses are immature to not it even that.. When the finally do, it will be too little too late…

    Donald, I honestly fail to understand the MOCKERY of all involved with this Human Drama of the final War with the LTTE for MR to be the War Victor, where the stage was deliberately cleared by the Americans and the Indians. The Americans certainly would have seen through Satalite Image exactly what took place as planned by them. This happens while the Indians and you Diaspora just wait till the massacre is over. Now after the job is done, voices are raised to high heaven about War Crimes and Injustices caused. Why was this not done before, for months when the MR Govt. was advertising to the whole world to hear, they were going to annihilate the LTTE. Even the Tamil Nadu govt. with Jayalalitha, K’ Nidhi who are very vociferous now, were very quiet then. Surely why did they not protest at all. Or was there some other plan where the whole lot of you were taken for a RIGHT ROYAL RIDE including VP of the LTTE? What Horse Deals?

      I agree with what you say.

      The Tamilnadu politicians consented to what took place in the North and East.

      Vaiko promised heaven. VP believed Vaiko was his man in New Delhi but he was a Delhi’s man in LTTE. Thirumavalavan, Nedumaran, Seeman and others who supported LTTE (VP) could not/did not/did not want to stop the slaughter.

      Once Donald reminded us in these forums that the Tamil population across the Palk strait is 66 millions. What good has come out of this large population.

      I don’t remember Donald actively demanding the release of VP’s human shield. VP and the 66 millions are a curse not a blessing.

      The diaspora misled VP.

      They should have insited on surrender instead by default they actively encouraged slaughter.

    Gamini says “you DIASPORA wait till massacre is over”,

    Gamini’s statement does not make sense, Diaspora were the only ones who screamed and cried of the massacre yet to happen, not Karunanithi,not Jeyalalitha,not Robert Blake, not me and certainly not Gamini or any other critics of MR.It was the diaspora because they had their family members trapped in NFZ…..

    Now those who blame diaspora which includes the critics of MR, you can sit in the comfort of your chair and judge the diaspora all you want, but it was them who chased MR from London, it is them who despite the temperatures plunging to minus, are out with their children protesting to win the sympathy of the PEOPLE not the politicians…

      Jegath, the Diaspora’s protests against MR is after the massacre. Why was it that the pressure that you try to enforce now was not brought before the massacre? That is my point. Infact I have pointed out tht this war MR claimed to have won was presented to MR on a platter by VP and LTTE, although it was hyped in the media, exagerating the dead by both sides of a war in its full intensity. Town after town was falling in to the hands of the MR govt. Forces inspite of the whole of North and East was ridden with land mines. There was no hue and cry from the Tamil Diaspora even. Till suddenly the skys crashed at the end after much publicity was given that the Civilians were held as a Human shield found Rubber Dingies and Boats, must have fallen from the skys, for them to escape the LTTE holding them. According to the original script of the Drama, VP and the LTTE that remained would have been offered freedom deceiving all. But when the whole bloody lot was massacred, now all are crying foul. Sarath Fonseka’s white flag story has relevance here as these buggers know the truth and none of them are willing to come forward and tell the general public the TRUTH for their involvement gets exposed, including the Tamil Diaspora. I have repeatedly questioned from Donald, about the American involvement but obviously he can not comment freely being on their soil. The truth is all are smarting having got played out. No wonder when people get involved in Horse Deals or Monkey Business, this is the result.

        “Why was it that the pressure that you try to enforce now was not brought before the massacre?”

        I guess the Diaspora must have trusted/naively believed that being the master of everything VP would reverse the military misfortunes.

        They too put lot of trust in themselves that they could persuade USA, UK, Canada, Australia, Norway,…….and these countries would intervene in the fulness of time and saved the saviour (VP).

        Viko, Nedumaran, Seeman together with others gave VP a long rope. VP thought it was a lifeine infact it was a noose for VP to hang, commit suicide. In fact he hung by the rope eventually and died in the hands of Gota’s army. The LTTE diaspora is yet to acknowledge VP’s death. Indian offer of a ceasefire was rejected by VP on the instigation of Vaiko & co.

        The Indian election results were above to be declared on 16 May 2009. VP was convinced that a change of government was imminent and BJP would save his neck, and his sand castle.

        There is also another side to VP’s surrender. KP too gave VP a long rope to hang. He promised to arrange US navy to lift him and his cadres.

        All in all VP was the prisioner (victim) of his own stupidity compounded by Tamil people’s own stupidity.

          KP did this,VP did that, Diaspora did this, MR did that, VP was wrong, Diaspora was right…Vedda tell you what, you are a good judge, but can you see back home, your people are being integrated into the sinhalese..quick rush now, before its too late…

        Gamini,

        Like I said, everyone who comment now that VP should have done this, Diaspora should have done that, none of these people are on the ground, none of them came to the diaspora and told them what to do and even now none of them are involved, they read news in their leisure time, they are in their comfort of their house, sipping their tea and judging people…..

        Diaspora did not have a reason to protest, until the NFZ and the “human shield” b.s came up…Massacre started back in mid 2008 not May 17 and the diaspora was in the streets already, just look at Tamilnet, the timeline is just perfect,Diaspora got the visuals of these killings that C4 got months back..

        None of these anti-MR or anti-Governemnt journalist or persons who talk big in forums on VP or Diaspora, none of them were to be seen back then, but now they all over the place advising the diaspora…

        If these guys were not with us when we were suffering don’t come telling us what to do now…

    “– as part of the its on-going engagement with international governments to highlight the enduring persecution of the Tamil people in Sri Lanka.”

    Such blank statements are akin to what I call ‘Playing cricket without wickets’.

    Will a Tamil, who is living in Sri Lanka and especially in the the north and east,at the present time, please list specific issues of ‘Énduring Persecution’ that are particularly directed at the Tamils?

    “They [Tamil leaders in the West] should have insited on surrender instead by default they actively encouraged slaughter.”

    Absolutely correct. And this is confirmed by Wikileaks revealing that when Robert O. Blake asked Tamil leaders in the USA to call upon the Tigers military leaders to release the civilians, they refused. But what was behind this refusal? The answer is that they had callous disregard for the lives of the mainly lower caste and lower class Tamils being used by the Tigers as human shields.

    In most wars and liberation struggles, the political and military leaders take great care to minimize the suffering of civilians. The sickening thing about the Tamil Tigers and their supporters in the so-called diaspora is that they wanted to do the exact opposite: to maximize casualties among their own civilians. This was partly due to the deluded belief that such casualties would trigger intervention by the UK and others, and partly from desire to punish the lower caste Tamils for not being fanatical enough to defeat the Sri Lankan government and its allies.

    One day the northern Tamil people must settle accounts with the leaders who led them to experience so much suffering in pursuit of an unobtainable dream.

        That too. That is not the whole story.

        Since early 1990s Sinhalese too have increasingly been granted refugee status and PR on the basis that they either opposed the state against its oppression and killing of Tamils or they themselves caught in the violence against the Sinhalese.

        The number of Sinhalese heading towards Australia and Western nations by Kallathonies is mind boggling. On many occassions Sinhalese who were caught by the authorities in Austalia out numbered the Tamils.

        Their claim for refugee status:

        1. They helped Tamils (including members of LTTE)during and after the war.

        2. The opposed the state and the white van is after them.

      Candidly says:

      ” One day the northern Tamil people must settle accounts with the leaders who led them to experience so much suffering in pursuit of an unobtainable dream.”

      The stupid Tamils within and outside the island had no choice but to taw LTTE’s line although they knew the Tamil Eelam project was dead on arrival in 1976. They were caught between devil and the deep blue sea. You are free to work out which is which.

      The Tamil Eelam project was not their dream but an imposition by successive Sinhala/Buddhist regimes. When all their hopes, aspirations, and peace were dashed by Sinhala/Buddhist majoritarian rule their only slim hope was Tamil Eelam although they very well knew it was not achievable.

      The accountability starts at the door steps of Sinhala/Buddhist stae, its rulers, LTTE, JVP, all parties, all armed groups, the Sinhala Buddhist narrow nationalists including so called intellectuals, armed forces and stupid sinhalese who continue to elect their rulers.

      Instead of finding solution the escalation of war for both parties a convenient cover for their past failures. Neither LTTE nor the state was interested in peace.

      Being stupid both the Tamils and Sinhalese went along with self destruction. In 1971 and between 1987 and 1991 the stupid Sinhalese paid the price. Over the past 25 years it was the stupid Tamils paid a heavy price for being stupid.

      On the other hand the slaughter of Tamils did not take place in vacum. The International community including India, USA, UK, China, Pakistan, actively supported the Sri Lankan state ignoring the mounting death toll.

      Had these countries decided to stop the killings they could have done so at an early stage of the final war. The IC wanted to finish off the LTTE at any costs although they had many options opened to them.

      The sadest part is that neither the state nor the Tamils want to take stock of their mutual destrction. The state and its rulers prefer to remain in a constant state of denial supported by their Sinhala/Buddhist majority. Similarly the so called Tamil Diaspora too in denial for different reason.

      Now there is competion among a section of Tamil diaspora over who is much, much, closer to the ruling regime.

      Who is responsible for so many deaths?

      The Sinhala/Buddhists people and their state and its rulers.
      Tamils and their leadership
      India and rest of the International community.
      The Tamilnadu politicians

      Not necessarily in the above order.

      There is no record of Vanni Tamil claim that LTTE took them as “shields”,I find it strange why people like you, who stood cheered “jeya wewa”,when a multi barrel rocket fell on the head of a tamil, cry about “human shields” now,

        Once a a year on Prabaharan’s birthday you saluted the fallen tigers with a symbolic/token gesture “Veera Vanakkam”.

    This is a publicity seeking press release.

    Suren Surenthiran and Fr Emmanual knew well that this meeting will disturb the Sri Lanka government.

    So why they are issuing a press release?

    Because of internal conflict between GTF and BTF.

    BTF claims that they achive wonders in the Human Rights Council and GTF claims that we meet South African government. Eventuality is nothing achived by both.

    Both never did anything useful to have a claim.

    What they both is mustard compare to the suffering Tamils.

    Stop your publicity seeking press releases and do useful work for the people in our homeland.

        is worried about vanishing Veddas. Thanks for your concern. The greedy Sinhalese and Tamils are responsible for destruction of our island.

        The only way to preserve our identity is to send the Kallathoni Tamils and Sinhalese back to their mother country, India. I am working on it.

        You say:

        “Well if you think losing an identity of a culture old as civilization is ok,fine, then mate you do not deserve to talk about tamils or sinhalese..”

        Surely you should have a word with your brethren across the palk strait.

        Your opponents cannot take away your identity. It is you who change your identity to fit with others.

        While we are on this subject have you had time to read on the subject of Sinhalese Tamil genetics (stupidity)? I recommended a number of research articles and two books. These two books were written by your people.

        If you haven’t don’t bother.

        Reading those books and articles won’t make you wiser nonetheless definitely would make you less stupider.

        Please tell me what is your Tamil identity? Define it for the benefit of people like me. Also what is Sinhala identity if you could find out from your Sinhalese brethren.

        I have raised this questions on several forums. No one ever answered me, all were in hiding. Because the Sinhalese and Tamils have a huge identity crisis.

    is learning real politics and does not understand the consequence of wheeling dealing.

    Being the big Sanakya VP made several deals and delivered what others expected of him.

    The first deal was hatched by VP. He was willing to work for India and prepared to massacre Sinhalese innocent pilgrims in Anuradhapura as suggested by his then masters.

    As an obedient understudy he was willing to destroy other Tamil groups requested by his then mentors and masters, the RAW. In return India promoted him as the dominant leader, shoved LTTE down the troats of the unsuspecting Tamils.

    He went to war with India, expecting the West to help him and then worked for Premadasa for a fee. Indeed the West and Premadasa rewarded VP for his destructive disservice to Tamils.

    VP sent his hit team to assassinate Rajiv Ganthi on the instruction of his Bosses from outside South Asia.

    Further his team of assassins massacred EPRLF leadership on Tamilnadu soil.

    He agreed to work for MR as a horror manager forcing the Tamils to boycott elections, in return for for a large fees.

    Did he ever work for the Tamil speaking people? What have the Tamil speaking people achieved from the actions, inactions, and stupidity of VP?

    Please note people cannot remain friends with psychopaths. On the other hand serial killers cannot make friends with their victims.

    Vanni people only open their mouth to have their meals. This was true under LTTE control and this is true now under terror Gota’s control.

      Here are few questions for you:

      1) Since you hate VP for being violent, do you believe that violence was a choice that VP and 33 militias made or was it given to them by the Sinhalese establishment?

      2) Throughout the timeline of the past thirty years, do you have a place to mark saying “this is where LTTE should have dropped their arms and switched to a non violent political struggle”?

      3) What evidence do you hold of to speculate with such confident that VP was bribed by MR?Is it the statements from the losing side(Opposition)?

      4) Speaking of the war with India, have you heard of Thileepan or out of the 7000 victims of IPKF’s intervention, have you met and talked to any one of them?

      5) Do you realize in an armed struggle which is born out of desperation, unlike its counter part the political struggle, has only one use thorough out its history which is to stop the armed aggression from the opposition?

      I believe I have answered you through my questions, if not tell me I will…

      VP’s achievement as an individual is he made tamils who had a deep trust in India, both emotionally and politically to realize India was the secret sponsor of Sinhala Chauvinists also through “wheeling and dealing” somehow, someway, he bought this long hidden secret conflict to the tables of UN and he broke the stereotype of tamils among the sinhala chauvinist as “educated cowardly fools”…

      Vedda you are just unrepresentative of your own kind, that being the case, it is unbelievable how you think it is morally right for you to talk of others….

        “Since you hate VP for being violent,”

        I hate no one. How could you hate stupid people?

        “do you believe that violence was a choice that VP”

        Being a stupid he only knew violence for the sake of violence a state of mind moulded by his hatred for all human beings and himself. He was a self hating stupid Tamil.

        ” “this is where LTTE should have dropped their arms and switched to a non violent political struggle”?

        The LTTE should have bartered their arms for reasonable political settlement with international casteiron guarantees. There was no need for them to have unleashed mindless violence on innocent civilians or on their perceived enemies.

        They had several opportunities to democratise Tamil speaking people’s struggle which could have benefitted the Sinhalese or helped to democratise the whole state structure and change their mindset.

        All VP’s so called military and political strategies were based on Eye for an Eye or hit the innocent Sinhalese harder where it hurt them most, their lives.

        The stupid man and his actions never aimed at goodness of people, but it only brought out the evil in others.

        He could not live with his fellow 33 Tamil groups. He never understood one should not keep all their eggs in one basket.

        Had known how Rohana Wijeweera was killed by the Army VP would have not have surrendered to Terror Gota’s henchmen.

        “What evidence do you hold of to speculate with such confident that VP was bribed by MR?Is it the statements from the losing side(Opposition)?”

        Oh please, What evidence do you have that VP was not an alien who was sent to Vanni to destroy the stupid Tamils?

        “have you heard of Thileepan”

        Didn’t VP prevented Thileepan breaking his faste?

        “7000 victims of IPKF’s intervention, have you met and talked to any one of them?”

        Please refer my previous comments to David Blacker and other Black and Deckers.

        I have been meeting victims of state, IPKF, JVP, LTTE and other Tamil and Sinhala groups, Muslim homeguards, etc on a regular basis since 1971.

        You might have heard of them but never experienced their pain, suffering and despair.

        Have you had time to read those articles on Genetic affinity of Tamils and Sinhalese.

        Don’t get confused with armed struggle by people and by a mad man. Struggle is always centered around people and VP was motivated only by hatred and his unlimited capacity to unleash violence. If he had the people’s support and the their struggle was run by them VP could have saved his back.

        VP’s achievement is his unlimited capacity for delusion.

        “it is unbelievable how you think it is morally right for you to talk of others….”

        I am not deluded therefore I know who I am. I don’t claim to be a sole representative of any group of people.

        This is my ancestral land which gives me the natural right to tell you off in no uncertain terms.

        Please note “Comment is free facts are sacred”.

          When the claim of “ancestral land” is heavily disputed, you have no right to judge others, specially when you are unrepresentative of your own kind…

          I don’t read, I study, we have a very close affinity with monkeys, affinity has many variable not reliable, for humans it is the origin that matters, the Sinhalese genetic ORIGIN is very close to Bengalese, somewhere 80%…

          I am a victim myself, like all Tamils in the island and abroad..I have experience pain, if not I wouldn’t be wasting my time replying…

          “Being a stupid he only knew violence”

          Did he knew any other way? specially after three decades of failed non violence policy and for the latter part of your comment, it is your personal opinion, none is proven facts and personal opinions which sound absurd is not worth challenging..

          “The LTTE should have bartered their arms for reasonable political settlement with international casteiron guarantees”

          Again you have decline to say when exactly they should have and under whose regime?Did the need for why Tamil taking arms simply vanish for them to put it down, if so when exactly was that?

          “International Gurantees”

          Annnd who are they?UN?USA?India?EU?Africa?International Community which was to make sure the fight is fair became a player and I see you often comment how these International Community and its people are hypocrites, full of double standards and sponsored Sinhala regime now you expect Tamils should have trusted their “guarantees”???

          “There was no need for them to have unleashed mindless violence on innocent civilians or on their perceived enemies”

          So when SL Army had all chance to prevent death on innocents and when they chose not to and when a nation and its people, from journalist to common man simply turned a blind eye and encouraged this crime, you expected the Tamils to say “sadu,sadu, carry on, we will not retaliate”?

          “They had several opportunities to democratise Tamil speaking”
          They had only one, during 2002 ceasefire, which was instated by VP himself, in case you have amnesia, senior LTTE cadres were secretly assassinated, LTTE was not called to Tokyo Conference, Ranil asked Pentagon for a secret research on LTTE and how they could be defeated, Ranil and Chandrika worked closely to get LTTE banned..

          “Didn’t VP prevented Thileepan breaking his faste?”

          Again you have not answered whether the war with India was wrong or right?VP only asked Thileepan to at least drink water not break the faste, big difference…

          “Oh please, What evidence do you have that VP was not an alien who was sent to Vanni to destroy the stupid Tamils?”

          It is clear, that you hold no evidence, when asked, you panic and try to divert your embarrassment on something stupid..Old, very old tactic!

          You talk as if LTTE held all the power to change the politics but chose not to, at the same time you lectured other users how LTTE was outnumbered in soldiers and weapons and it was not a war because war meant equal chance of winning.

          So from your comment it is clear Sinhala regime was very powerful in all ways than LTTE,powerful enough to get away from war crimes that being said even if LTTE chose some other way to benefit tamils politically, you believe sinhala regime would have allowed it to happen also do you think LTTE was powerful enough to stop the plans of Sinhala regime?

          You met all the victims, fair enough, you qualify to lead UNHCR but when your own kind needs you, you are thousand miles away in hiding?

          People these days hiding behind computer screen feel they need to bring someone down for them to feel better..

    Native Vedda,

    “Vanni people only open their mouth to have their meals”. You are absolutely right, with regard to the majority of the poor war-affected. Finding their next meal is a problem for a lot of people, amidst all the societal problems among them and around them. It is not fear that keeps their mouths shut at other times. They ate beyond fear because of their recent experiences! They are a people who have been used, abused and largely forgotten! They know this and curse those who brought them to this state day in and day out, in the name of issues that mattered little to them.

    My dear sinhalese friends,
    Don’t you know millions of diaspora Tamils standing on the streets around the world day and night begging to stop the war and killing the unarmed civilians from 2006 onwards.But the Sinhalese extreamist like you and your soldiers are busy with rape the corps and eating the raw blesh of our mothers, fathers, sisters and our daughters without any shame. Now you come out of the dead chambers and asking us why we are silence during the war.shame on you.go to hell.

      Kana, I am a full blooded Sinhalese who has always stood up for eqality to Tamils and even housed two Tamil Families in ’83 riots. What I can not understand at present is that prominent Tamils breaking bread with MR, while others are are crying for War Crime Investigation. I believe the investigation for War Crimes should be universal. Possibly it is feared not only by MR alone but the Americans and the Indians has to be for the reason of their involvement being exposed. There appears to be wheels within wheels.

        An indepentent war crime investigation should cover the period from 5th of April 1971 to date.

        The investigation should start at Delhi and move to UN and then to rest of the IC, finally you know where.

    It’s interesting to note that the sleazy UK Labour MP and good friend of the Global Tamil Forum, Kieth Vaz, is once again under investigation by the police and the British media. This time its half a million UK pounds unaccounted for in his bank accounts:
    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2211141/Keith-Vaz-Secret-police-inquiry-Labour-MP-uncovered-500-000-mystery-payments.html?ito=feeds-newsxml

    It will be interesting to see as this unfolds, whether there is any financial link here with the Tamil Tigers.

    More Tamils of integrity and goodwill in the UK need to come forward and clear out the unscrupulous mob like Suren Surendiran and “Father” S J Emmanuel who have been seen as Tamil spokespeople in the UK for far too long.

    This [Edited out] Rv. Father S.J.Emmanuel should have addressed this isuue with his Master jesus Christ and through him to the Heavenly Father the Almighty.

    Ever the [Edited out] he is this Emmanuel is making a mockery of the Catholic Church & God.
    In whom does he find Gods in South Africa and/or Switzerland ??

    This Joker first made Velu the Sun Goat for everybody to worship.
    Then he equated the suicide cardres to Matyers of the catholic Chuch who gave their life to God.

    Why don’t he engage Russia and Iran and/or China ??

    More and more Tamils are seeing Emmanuel & surendiran as International jokers representing the wiped out LTTE.
    Wannians were one time like condoms for Surendiran, Emmanuel & the LTTE. Today Norwegian Tamil parents are paying back for the losses of investments by Norway on the LTTE with their children.

    JEGATH… you are loud & invest time here as long as funds trickle in only. Fools rush in where Angels dare to thread.

    “This Joker first made Velu the Sun Goat for everybody to worship”

    How do you define Joker?

    I find stupid Tamils and stupid Sinhalese increasingly using Joker for everything that they seem to despise.

    Not too long ago Amartya Sen was branded as a joker in one of those comment column by stupid Sri Lanky.

    When lost for words use joker to fill the gap.

    Emmanuel & Surendiran can tell that to the Miners in South Africa and not to the country itself.
    These s..cu..m…. bags will never learn but living off others misery.
