President Gotabaya Rajapaksa Must Demonstrate Respect For Human Rights & Address Impunity: ICJ

Sri Lanka’s newly elected president, Gotabaya Rajapaksa and his government must demonstrate that they will uphold human rights and rule of law, and ensure that Sri Lanka sustains its international obligations and commitments to justice and accountability, said the International Commission of Jurists (ICJ) today.

Gotabaya

Gotabaya Rajapaksa faces credible allegations of involvement in war crimes and crimes against humanity that took place during the country’s armed conflict.

“The election of Gotabaya Rajapaksa, after a highly polarizing campaign, has alarmed human rights defenders in Sri Lanka and abroad, who have little reason to believe that someone facing such serious allegations of perpetrating human rights violations can be relied upon to meet the country’s obligations under international law,” said Frederick Rawski, ICJ Asia Pacific Director.

Gotabaya Rajapaksa, who won the presidency with 52.25% of votes, served as Sri Lanka’s Secretary of the Ministry of Defence from 2005 to 2015 during the tenure of his brother Mahinda Rajapaksa, at the height of the armed conflict against the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE).

Both the military and LTTE perpetrated war crimes and gross human rights violations during the conflict, and particularly during its bloody final stages. As Defence Secretary, Gotabaya was accused of ordering the killing of surrendering LTTE fighters, ordering strikes on civilians and hospitals, and authorizing attacks on human rights defenders.

International condemnation of atrocities committed during the conflict led to the UN Human Rights Council demanding that the Sri Lankan government commit to a process of transitional justice, in view of the systematic failures of accountability mechanisms in Sri Lanka in the past, as documented by the ICJ in its submission to the Human Rights Council, and others. Despite commitments from the Sri Lankan government, the transitional justice process has effectively stalled and impunity has prevailed.

“The ICJ is deeply concerned that even the limited strides made over the past five years in Sri Lanka on transitional justice, positive constitutional amendments and institutional reform will be reversed,” said Rawski.

The ICJ urged the Government to deliver on its commitment to the transitional justice process, including by holding those responsible for human rights violations and abuses accountable, and complying with the obligations set out in United Nations Human Rights Council Resolutions 30/1, 34/1 and 40/1.

    It is true that singing of the national anthem in Tamil the mother tongue of 25% of the population and also the national and official language in par with Sinhalese ( sic at least on paper too fool the international community but not in practice) has been banned again and now only to be sung in Sinhalese. The leopard has shown his true spots. This means he is stating Tamils and Muslims do not belong , and their language or mother tongue will not be respected

        Tamils in Canada & England are living there only for maximum 50 years.
        But there are many countries that the national anthem is sung by many languages.
        Canada (French & English), Belgium, New Zealand, Singapore and South Africa are the simple examples.

        Stupid racist ,the Canadian national anthem is sung in English and French and Tamils who live there are recent immigrants but Sri Lankan Tamils are native and indigenous to the island with a far older history than the Sinhalese . They have lived in their own land and ruled it until European colonisation. Despite all the large scale ethnic cleansing and stealing their lands both the Sinhalese and Muslims , they still own around 30% of the land . They have the same right to the island as the Sinhalese and their culture , language and customs are as indigenous as the Sinhalese and should be respected and given the same status. Only Sinhalese racists like you will come up with the such silly excused about Tamils living in Canada . Lots of Sinhalese live in the west too is the national anthem sung in Sinhalese? I could as something stupid like that. What you are trying to do is cunningly trying to say Tamils living in Sri Lanka do not belong but are recent immigrants to the land. Lying racist bigot,

          We all know that you are using a Sinhalese name to masquerade your identity, nevertheless, with your laughable statement Sri Lankan Tamils are native and indigenous to the island with a far older history than the Sinhalese. ” You have to prove it and it is an utter nonsense and you do not know the history of Sri Lanka. Last but not least, if a person who also belongs to the majority of the folk of the land who is defending his national rights which are dangerously attacked by the enemies should not be called as a racist/Lying racist bigot.”These types of wordings a used by the western imperialists to manipulate you and those countries people are just spatting such words like parrots! Again, Sri Lanka is a Sinhalese-Buddhist” country, whether you like it not, it is a fact.

          Rohan, No problem if National Anthem is sung in Tamil/Sinhala/English. Do not rewrite history. Tamils have not lived in Sri Lanka longer than the Sinhalese. Europeans brought millions of cooli Tamils to do their dirty work. Tamils are recent immigrants who escaped poverty from the filthy state of Tamil Nadu. Sinhalese will treat Tamils as equals but will not tolerate the murderous Tamil Terrorists. You know that, You need to believe that!

        Tamils are not demanding for a separate state in England, Australia, Canada etc.., at least not yet.. so it is tolerable that these countries allow the national anthem to be sung in Tamil (or other different languages). When Tamils stop demanding for “EELAM” in Sri Lanka, then the country could allow that ! Time for the Tamils to learn to co-habit amongst all other communities and respect them for what they are. Only then will they see how the ‘bad guys’ will reciprocate. .
        Of course the majority of Sri Lanka Tamils are very descent and humble, its those who agitate, bicker, bark for preferential treatment who will be disappointed. !

        Until recently, the Swiss national anthem was sung in any of the 4 national languages people spoke. I believe a new anthem was being introduced with each verse in a different language.
        It seems we are going to go over this ridiculous argument yet again; we just cant learn from our obtuseness of the past & the tragedy & chaos it has brought upon us.
        I despair of this country!

          Why not. Tamils are invaders from Tamil Nadu. The original inhabitants had been Yaksa and Naga gothrika, who later on evolved into Sinhalese race, who built a flourishing civilization in the entire country including North and East. Tamils from South India invaded this country several times and ultimately in the 13th century destroyed the Sinhalese civilization in the North never to regain its old glory. This is the historical fact. Racist Tamils keep distorting history to claim they are the original inhabitants. This is pure invention.

            Of course they are.
            The Sinhala/Buddhists are the descendants of Tamil invaders from Tamil Nadu who chose ancestors converted to Sinhala/Buddhism.

        Dear Real Revolutionist,

        Canada has two official languages, English and French. Hence the National Anthem can be sung in these languages. In fact the original anthem was in French and later translated to English. Tamil is not an official language of Canada. Hence the anthem is not sung in Tamil.

        Similalry Switzerland has four national languages and the anthem can be sung in those languages.

        A nation’s anthem forges unity among the diverse people who share that land. Hence it is not a tool to be used by ill informed revolutionists to saw enmity and deepen fissures within a nation.

        Having said that as I understand the news that there is a ban to sing in Tamil is yet to be confirmed by reliable sources.

        SL Tamils living in Canada and England are recent immigrant arrivals and not native English people. They arrived there from SL as refugees to live safely and self respect after being expelled from the island by the likes of yourself and your government denied their native ethnicity in the land where they had lived for centuries along with the Sinhalese majority and historically suffered colonisation by various European imperialist countries until 1948.

        The SL constitution still recognises Tamil as an Official Language language and provides no impediment in the exercise of equal status to their culture and traditions that is afforded to the majority community.

        If the Gotabaya administration that has been sworn in yesterday has denied the Tamils singing the National Anthem in their own tongue that is a matter to be dealt with ASAP.

        Both the majority Sinhalese and minority Tamils who are natives of the island cannot be in denial about the adjacent Indian sub-continent’s linguistic and cultural impact on their respective faiths and the religious practices which conditions their outlook and thinking.
        The common links that exist between the two communities can only be denied only by the most rabid demagogic racists.
        As such to ask, if Tamils who live in U.K. and Canada can sing the national anthem in Tamil is frivolous and absurd. Sinhalese too live alongside Tamils in these countries and they too do not sing the National anthem in Sinhalese.

      Maybe someone can explain why it is needed to sing the national anthem in Tamil, is it to express commitment to Mother Lanka its current unitary non federalist state? If so that should be welcome. I think a proper explanation will help.

      • 0

        Proper and simple explanation is Tamil Tigers want to add as much features as possible to legalize their bogus claim for Sri lanka. Tamil Tigers are not dead and they got the bogus refugees status in western countries by promoting war and establish permanent footing in the western countries to carry the conspiracy into the future from the West.

        And if they were only in India, they have no power and cannot carry international campaign against Sri lanka. Tamil population is huge in India and all Western groups exited to have Tamil in the West which give them full access to control Sri lanka first and then India.
        But Sinhalese are the major target because Tamil Tigers are exited by Western support and have original idea of Tamil Nadu to conquer Sinhalese Buddhists majority.

        That is why I said non of those leaders in Sri lanaka not qualified to fight Tamil.
        I get back to you later with more detail about this subject.

        Dear Vanuard,
        .
        Five days after
        you have asked, nobody has explained. So, I shall give my “explanation.”
        .
        If those whose First Language is Tamil, voluntarily sing the anthem in Tamil, which is the language that they understand best, they are indeed affirming their commitment to a Mother Lanka (“matha” means mother.). We sing this anthem too often, and it has become mechanical. However, each time it is sung, even mechanically, it reinforces the conditioning of the mind.
        .
        Singing it, because forced to, in a language that is not understood, and knowing that there once was a Tamil version which has been suppressed, will only result in the individual singer, saying under his/her breath, that they cursed the whole process.
        .
        Growing up, there are a handful of Sri Lankan children, citizens actually living in the country, who have English as their First Language. All of them understand some Sinhalese or Tamil. We need make no concession for them – and they have not, so far, asked for it. No other language matters. The Vedda language, Arabic, archaic Portuguese (in pockets close to Batticaloa), Malay, etc. don’t matter at all. They are artificially kept going for cultural reasons.
        .
        .
        Not directly relevant: do you realise that after the assassination of S.W.R.D. Bandaranaike, in September 1959, the opening words were considered to have brought ill-luck to the country, and they were changed from “Namo, Namo, Matha” to the present “Sri Lanka Matha”?
        .
        The man who wrote the National Anthem, Ananda Samarakoon, committed suicide.
        .
        https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ananda_Samarakoon
        .
        Isn’t that enough?

They cannot claim lands in North and East as matter of their right denying natives land there. Why the same so called Moors (gupsaa) claim as Tamils in TN and buurrs in lanka. Double action!

      Indian national anthem was composed by a Bengali poet Rabindranath Tagore with the aim of uniting all parts of the country and to this day it is sung not in Hindi, but in a regional language that is Bengali! Also, if you care to listen to the lyrics of the anthem all regional cultures are celebrated in it, which is not the same with the Sri Lankan anthem. So, please do not compare the Sri Lankan situation with that of India. Further, just so that you are enlightened, there are regional state anthem’s too sung at state functions, in the case of Tamilnadu it is Thamil Thaai Vallthu! So, in light of the above, how could one justify the denial of the right to sing the Sri Lankan national anthem in one of the two official languages of the country viz. Tamil, by Tamils!

        No it does not mention all states, and how about the newly formed state? Are they going to revise the National Anthem to include those? Sri Lanka is not a Federal country we do not have states, so we don’t need a state anthem, if the Indian National Anthem to be sung in the official language it should be sung in Hindi.

      The Indian national anthem is sung in Sanskritised Bengali and not in Hindi. Each Indian state have their own l anthem and they use this for all purposes . India has many languages not one Sri Lanka has only two and the national anthem can be sung in both languages or one verse in one language and the other in the other , just like the South African national Anthem. Most countries that have two to three languages , sing the national anthem in all these languages . Do not make stupid statements

      then, of Cause, All the Jews in US, Europe and Israel have to face crime charges because they were in Sri lanka for more than 30 years and were guiding former Prez. Rajapakse and general Fonsaka and had open and secret contact with Gota until today. Jewish group have contact with Tamil Tigers at the same time then and now. And if there is any hearing take place, thousands of evidence will come to surface to prove that Jewish groups have had contact with Tigers all time. British were openly supporting Tigers. They did not make secret about it.

      Who ever trying to subjugate Sinhalese Buddhists majority should know that Western countries will not be able to make any friendship with Sri lanka and Tamil Tigers’ supporters in the west going to face same fate.

    This man is no reformer this was obvious then and is prevalent now. Leaches and parasites like Douglas Devananda and Karuna were supporting him and quite obviously the majority of Sinhala Buddhists. It would take a miracle for Sri Lanka to be reformed and be a caring society. We have to decide how to combat this murderer and his brothers from destroying the country.

    To start Chandrika Kumaratunga must make a public apology and disband the bloody Sri Lanka Freedom Party. So should UNP, both UNP and SLFP has ruined the country and have corrupted the Democracy itself. People like Anura Kumara Dissanayake must take over reigns.

    Recently I saw a program on Al Jazeera about Hong Kong. The human rights champion (white lawyer) was quick to mention “rape”, “torture”, etc. However, when the guest from China asked for proof, the champion did a quick 180, admitting that these were only allegations. It’s the same with Sri Lanka. There are many allegations against GR, but the proof is entirely lacking. GR should not waste his time conducting useless investigations, as the people who want it will not be satisfied until interested parties have a separate state. That is their real goal – a separate state – not bringing perpetrators to justice. Who remembers Solheim and his NGO friends drinking arrack with VP in Kilinochchi?

        “These are all BLACK PROPAGANDA and it starts again.”

        You are a racist pig.
        Could you not bring yourself restraint from calling all bad things BLACK?
        Why not, white propaganda, brown propaganda, yellow propaganda, pink propaganda, ……..

        You have an Aryan sick mind.

        They want Sri Lanka to investigate cases going back to 2006, but they will never punish Saudi Arabia for openly beheading a journalist in Turkey. The only thing they did is cancel a one day summit with the Saudis. But now the Western banks are lined up for the sale of Saudi Aramco! EU put tariffs on Sri Lankan garment exports to increase the pressure, but the same EU is still doing good business with Saudi selling them millions worth of weapons. These weapons are used by the Saudis to illegally bomb and invade Yemen. At least Sri Lanka did not invade other countries or sponsor terrorist groups like ISIS to do their dirty work.

    As usual the LTTE terrorists under the guise of being Sinhalese are condemning Sri Lanka. The foreign NEWS papers (probably funded by the LTTE or other governments) are already slinging mud at the new president and Sri Lanka. There is no need to compare Sri Lanka to Canada, etc. This is Sri Lanka, the majority is Sinhalese and the National anthem should be sung in Sinhalese(it was the duly elected Executive President’s decision). If Tamils or Muslims want a different version please reproduce and bring your respective populations to above 35%. It is as simple as that(no need to kill anymore sons and daughters for the weapon cartels’ profits!).

    My message to foreign NEWS outlets (which seem to be) on the LTTE payroll and the LTTE Diaspora: You LOST! Live with it. Your plan was to eliminate the Executive Presidency in Sri Lanka and start a war. It won’t happen! Your attempts to discredit the Archbishop of Sri Lanka, prior to the bombings of churches, by ‘NGOs’ was thwarted! Again you lost, you will NEVER be able to destabilize Sri Lanka again and start a war so that you can collect Kappam from peace loving Tamils (my friends and relatives) and live off the back of hardworking and peace loving Tamils in Canada, Europe, U.K, USA, etc…FYI: Your respective adopted governments are also aware of this, do you seriously believe that Sri Lanka could have ended the war without the support of the G7, Russia and India? China and Pakistan have always been great friends of Sri Lanka.

    To the moderator of this page: Please publish this comment. I have stated (which I believe) facts, analysis, opinions and solutions for peace, or I will have to, reluctantly, assume that you are also pro-war!

      “As usual the LTTE terrorists under the guise of being Sinhalese are condemning Sri Lanka. “

      Good guess however you are utterly wrong.

      “The foreign NEWS papers (probably funded by the LTTE or other governments) are already slinging mud at the new president and Sri Lanka.”

      Again good guess however you are utterly wrong again.
      Do you think any Tom Dick Harry could buy every Tom Dick and Harry?
      Unlike the Fascist Sinhala/Buddhists you will be surprise to learn there are many honest, compassionate, law abiding Sinhalese and Buddhists who do really care about fellow human beings. If you haven’t met them that is because you seem to follow fascists ghetto builders and unfortunately you chose not to meet the real people. In this island no one has to sling mud on others I am confident you are capable doing it to yourself and being proud about it as well.

        1. Gota the national hangman the executioner was born on 20 June 1949 aged 70 years. Tamil was being used in politics, trade and temples many hundred years before his birth, another blot in the history of this island. Languages such as Pali, Prakrit, Portuguese, Dutch, Sanskrit, Arabic, ……. Malay, Persian, ….. were also in use at times. Mahawamsa was written in Pali, ………..

        2. If you go by majoritarian rule you will do well to remember you have more Sinhala/Buddhists stupid people than all the rest of the people put together (you included).

        “no need to kill anymore “

        Of course it is Gota’s and his goons job.

        “You LOST! Live with it”

        Well, sure they lost it, however there is no sign of you winning it. .
        You lot keep digging.
        You lot race to the bottom.
        Wake up before you crash.
