Prince Zeid’s War On Sri Lanka

By Dayan Jayatilleka

Dr. Dayan Jayatilleka

Dr. Dayan Jayatilleka

One thing I’ll say for Prince Zeid al Hussein: he’s a straight talker, clear, firm, strong and pointed, i.e., effective in his expressions of opinion, however unfair, absurd and frankly ridiculous they are. It’s a pity I cannot say the same about the representatives of the government of Sri Lanka, led by Minister Samaraweera. The UN High Commissioner and his Office are on the attack against Sri Lanka and its institutions. Where is our equally strong defense and counterattack on behalf of our country and the truth, by our representatives? Where does that leave us?

When you have an aggressive prosecuting attorney on one side and a passive defense attorney on the other, then you have a client who is in serious trouble. That’s Sri Lanka’s position at the UN in Geneva today. On the one hand there is UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Zeid al Hussein’s strong aggressive attack on Sri Lanka in his remarks introducing the report issued by his office. On the other there is the pre-emptive sellout by the Sri Lankan government represented by Minister of External Affairs Mangala Samaraweera.

Zeid Al Hussein himself admits in his opening remarks and in the Q&A that followed, that the Report is “rather unique”; that it is the first of its kind on human right violations by his Office. In this at least he is honest. The obvious question is why on earth should Sri Lanka submit to or comply with an unprecedented procedure? Why should our country go along with the product of a process that states which have committed infinitely vaster horrors for much greater periods of time and repeatedly, have not? Why should we be the first in line? Why should we be the guinea-pigs? Why should we put our heads on a chopping block as no one else has? Why should the Sri Lankan government, state and people submit to this discrimination; this institutional and diplomatic apartheid?

There is no pretense of even-handedness in Prince Zeid. In his opening remarks he spoke of crimes committed by the Sri Lankan state and “not only by [the state] but also by the LTTE”. So the LTTE are merely an “also ran” in the list of those culpable. Zeid implicitly rules out the possibility that the alleged crimes were committed by individuals in the heat of passions such as revenge; he rules out that these are aberrations, when he says that there was clear planning at institutional and command level.

Prince Zeid accuses us of “international crimes”, i.e. of “crimes of interest to the international community…war crimes, crimes against humanity”. He accuses us of “indiscriminate shelling” and “sexual violence”. We have an answer readily at hand: the reports of Sir Desmond de Silva QC and his colleagues, who were the internationally renowned experts advising the Paranagama Commission. While their report should be immediately tabled in Geneva, they could also be asked to draft our response to the OHCHR report.

The game that is going on is clear. It’s the old one of good cop, bad cop. Zeid plays the bad cop and demands that our collective head be cut off. The Americans will come in and play the good cop, saying, no, we shan’t take the rap for trying to cut their heads off ; we’ll just ask the Sri Lankans themselves to fall on their sword or commit ritual hara-kiri. Mangala Samaraweera has already agreed to the deal which is why he spoke of new statutes for a special criminal justice mechanism with a ‘Special counsel’ (read Prosecutor). What is it that the existing laws and institutions cannot do? What is that would require new statutes and legal structures for ‘criminal justice’ and ‘accountability’? The only possible answer is the presence of a foreign component; foreign involvement in the domestic legal process!

The Sri Lankan Ministry of External Affairs has already indicated that it will agree to a consensual resolution to be moved by the USA at the UNHRC on September 30th. This would mean that Sri Lanka will agree to a hybrid mechanism with foreign involvement, but under the guise of a ‘domestic mechanism’ to be set up by new legislation. The ‘consensus resolution’ formula will mean that sri lanka’s friends and those states who would be opposed to this model because of the violation of sovereignty that it entails and the dreadful precedent it sets , would be preemptively silenced. Not only will they be unable to speak up for us, they will be unable to speak up for a principle which is in their own interests simply because Sri Lanka will be used as a willing human shield by the US.

While Zeid’s example in the Q&A about the prosecution of former president of Chad does indicate that Mahinda Rajapaksa is indeed a target, his entire presentation shows that the primary target is the Sri Lankan state and armed forces and the war itself—our war of liberation from terrorism and for the reunification of our country. His target is nothing other than history—the verdict of history on the Sri Lankan state, its armed forces and our victorious war. The target is our self-pride as a society; our pride in ourselves as a country and people that defeated a ferocious terrorist army. Zeid and his office have provided ammunition for generations the world over, to vilify Sri Lanka. Their discourse and Report gives the pro-Tiger Diaspora the argument that their beloved Prabhakaran lost only because the Sri Lankan armed forces waged a war replete with war crimes. This is the worst possible reviling of the reputation of our dead heroes and their sacrifices—not least of those who gave their lives to breach the bunker-bund complex of the LTTE and save hundreds of thousands of civilians.

The weeks from today to September 30th will show whether or not Sri Lanka has a neocolonial puppet regime which is committed to returning this country to colonial rule, where foreign judges and lawyers sit in judgment of our citizens, our soldiers, our elected former leaders. A Government that does not defend the country’s sovereignty; a government that does not protect the State and the nation’s institutions from external threat be it physical, economic, legal or diplomatic; a government that does not protect the dignity of the nation; a government that does not counterattack against hypocrisy, unfairness, lies and calumny—such a government loses its legitimacy to rule; its legitimacy to govern.

    No mate, it is against the people who committed war crimes and crimes against humanity. Did anyone you know committ any of those? If YES, please hand them over and give evidence against them. If not, just shut the computer and go to sleep. Do you have any problem with looking for the bad people???

      In the Nugegoda Stage, DJ too commmited crimes. He attacked lanken personalities personally… not respecting them. Remember. this creature is now smeared by Rajapakshe extrements but making further efforts to turn it different, as if he had not been in the country since 2009.

        I think DJ ignores any others views but his.

        How can then be the most praveena political ananlyst..

        as it was the case with stupid people who nevertheless voted for Buruwanse, I believe, lankens still feel that DJ is the ONE and ONLY who could knnow more about the lanken extern issues.
        But the man s analyses did not even reach near to the current day realities. Now yestreday on, he dares to say, that we the lankens are fallen to the levels- that no good lawyers to work on the issues, while the prosecutors are very strong. [Edited out]

      HI guys, we the CT readers know who DJ has gone on writing since Jan 8th. There were days, that one could not imagine how quick he brought his second article. All in all what he fought was to bring his god father – who abused and looted this nation to core. He is none other than Mahinda Jarapakshe. TOday, very same man who made every effort to bring the criminals back – come and further criticise todays stand. HOw dare this man DJ behave so ? Either his brain cells are fully gone or he now knows nothing but trying to be belonged to good books. There is no consistency at all whatever he has been saying. It is all dependent on the next position that he would be gained – just after any govt being changed. But this time, I really dont think RW and MY3 would ever appoint this man even to scrape coconut in a kitchen. Anyways, one thing I can see is even a high criminal can become normal if he or she gets it where he or she went wrong. So best advice to DJ is to start from the Kindergarten and try to do the best if you can using your knowledge obtained having being able to work for foreign missions. Finally, that should be the way, if you really want to help th enaton by giving your knowledge. Latter is common to anyone that have collected knoweldge over the years.

    You should attempt to dismiss this report as one man’s effort to discredit Sri Lanka hence rename it as “Hussein Report” and spin out story.

    In case if you have already buried the title please see below

    “”Report of the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights on Promoting Reconciliation, Accountability and Human Rights in Sri Lanka”

    In case if you are tempted

    here is the authentic name of the UN Pannel report:

    “”Report of the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights on Promoting Reconciliation, Accountability and Human Rights in Sri Lanka””

    Stop pretending that Darusman got up one morning and found nothing else to do hence sat on his bum and knocked the report for his own joy.

        If the soldiers hadn’t commit any war crimes as the state, Gota and others claimed why would Ganapathipillai want this act to cover the soldiers’ back and neck retrospectively?

    “The UN High Commissioner and his Office are on the attack against Sri Lanka and its institutions. Where is our equally strong defense and counterattack on behalf of our country and the truth, by our representatives? Where does that leave us?”

    Pathetic! The current Sri Lankan government has been severely handicapped by systemic failures by the previous regime including your acclaimed perceived victory in Geneva 2009! You along with MR placed Sri Lanka in an extremely precarious position. You, by portraying that the Sri Lankan forces were doing humanitarian job by rescuing mass of Tamils and painting a picture that no war crimes committed. MR, by giving assurances to Ban Moon that an internal accountability will be carried out.

    If indeed, if the MR regime had worked with the UN on accountability, resettlement, and rehabilitation issues, soon after the war, Sri Lanka would not be in pickle now! But your smart ass patriot sentiments did not allow any of that. Your viewed that allowing or giving the UN free-hand will be inimical to the Sinhala race!

    One needs to defend humanity, rule of law, and good governance and by doing so, Sri Lanka’s long term interests can be secured for her citizens. Your Sinhala centric racist agenda stinks!

      Without DJ at Geneva – so he thinks – there is no defence for Sri Lanka either aggressive or competent.

      .
      Immediately after the war ended in 2009, this DJ promised so much to the world. He promised to punish the culprits, to devolve powers to the tamils, et. etc..

      The world believed his stories and supported him. UNHCR even passed resolution congratulating sri lanka.

      But later, this DJ was fired by his bosses (i believe for making those promises).

      For next 5 years sri lanka sent so many DJ’s, spent millions on propaganda and gained nothing.

      At least this new government was able to stop a full blown international investigation.

    You and your Mahinda Rajapakshe regime had a golden opportunity to solve this mess way back in 2009. But no, the then regime turned arrogant , bashful and was of contempt of the UN during that period .
    Not only that the uncouth way they treated the then High Commissioner of the UNHCR, Ms. Navi Pillai when she visited our country was utterly disgraceful. They blatantly used Mervyn Silva to ridicule and humiliate her.
    You left the current government with no choice but to pick up the pieces and go into damage control.
    Sorry Dayan you are a disgruntled old man clutching at any opportunity to discredit this government before they have had a chance to answer these findings.

    Mark my words this is the start a direct-action campaign against the ‘Domestic Processes’ that will end up in street battles. If these racists are not beaten and dispersed the first moment they attack Tamil or Muslim homes or businesses it will be all the way back to 1983.

      You are right, the Sinhala chauvinist outfits may be egged on by the agitated politicians to unleash a pogrom against Tamils as they did in 1958, 1977 and in 1983.

      In fact war crimes committed by the air force were incited by Soorawansa-like politicians as reported in the press during the war.

    What stupid comment by [Edited out] Dayan. If there were crimes committed then it does not matter what mechanism we follow, the crimes have to be investigated and those who found guilty have to be punished. What Dayan is trying to say is – since the crime was committed by the Armed Forces of Sri Lanka, to be loyal to the Armed Forces and the political leadership of that period we should not allow an investigation. Well Mr. [Edited out] keep your comments to yourself. You lied to UN and may be you too should be investigated and punished.

    Sweetheart,

    Your analysis is way beyond your comprehension of the issues at stake.

    Mahinda Rajapakse & his immediate family are guilty of human right abuses not only on a national level but even on a personal level.

    MR has corrupted the first three tiers of administration in every field by fear or favour – including you ( The truth of that must be apparent to you.)

    The first three tiers are guilty of illegalities that they were instrumental by virtue of their position(s).

    So when you sell you soul for fear or favour – as you have – you have to face them consequences – sweetheart.

    Sure, it is a mock trial – but that is a game you too have played.

    So, accept the consequences as a player who played and lost.

    Dayan,
    Srilanka or Sinhala Force cannot defence or counter attack because the investigations and findings are very clear about war crimes & human rights violation of the Srilanka state.

How can you defend the rape of a young prisoner?

Let the frustration get the better of you but as you would have realised by now, the days are going to get hotter and no matter how hard you bleat, you will be taught a glimpse of the pain and hurt the victims went through. A perpetual liar like you would have thought that you managed to shut the eyes when you got to pass the resolution patting on the back of your murderer brothers. On my Dayan, with what vengeance has the spirit bounced back to discredit you and your band of vagabonds. You haven’t seen the last of it yet mite.

    People like you are responsible for this country to be where it is at present. After all this you’re finding fault with Minister Mangala not being uttering ‘unfair, absurd and frankly ridiculous’ words????

    It is because of them that this report has been limited to recommending ‘domestic institutions with international participants’. If people like you, like you were before, were there, then it would have been a straight flight to The Hague.

    Aah! The sweet melancholy strains of a familiar tune from the Dr Dee Jay violin. Once again, on cue, that old familiar tune ‘nobody loves us but we don’t care’.

    For six long years we denied, obfuscated, procrastinated and postponed. LLRC? Bollocks! In the end, every day that we delayed simply strengthened the resolve and legitimacy for an independent, impartial, and of necessity a foreign inquiry into the whole sordid business. Regardless of our legitimacy in putting down an organisation that held the country to ransom, it was the cack-handed, amateurish and unprofessional leadership at the highest levels that have brought us to this.

    For all the bravery of the majority of our armed forces, we were let down by the undisciplined elements that resorted to excesses, then by the poor diplomatic initiatives, and last but not least by the unashamed elements of a rabid nationalist media that sort to defend the indefensible.

    And when I read our indefatigable DJ, I cannot but recall the lines from that Goldsmith poem I learned as a schoolboy….

    For e’en though vanquish’d he could argue still;
    While words of learned length and thund’ring sound
    Amazed the gazing rustics rang’d around;
    And still they gaz’d and still the wonder grew,
    That one small head could carry all he knew.
    But past is all his fame. The very spot
    Where many a time he triumph’d is forgot.

    Dammit! Enough of this perennial, pestilential stench. This ghost that stalks our every national initiative to heal and reconcile. Let’s bite the bullet, let’s have an impartial hearing, learn from the outcome, and move on.

    Hey stupid, cant you understand that lies and more lies and deception on these crimes is not getting the country anywhere. You and the Rajapakses were very good at lying and trying to cover up the war crimes that had been committed. Mangala is honest and fair and realizes that the only way to reconciliation is by admitting the truth. The whole world knew that you were the lying puppet and mouthpiece of the recently deposed king and you made SL look a pariah and a failed state with your lies. Zeid’s report is about justice and accountability which you obviously do not understand. Your analysis appears to be getting flawed by the minute. You are making yourself a fool by writing such crap judging by the numerous comments that appear from CT readers.

    If not for the foundation work done by Kadirgamar and his team through the international institutions and Western countries, you wouldn’t have had the chance of going to Geneva as UNHCR ambassador for SL. You talk so much now but why we’re you not representing the Rajapakse regime in 2014 in Geneva ? Why you couldn’t make MaRa as president on the 8th Jan. Forget about it but why your Mark Antony role at the Nugegoda Rally did not make MaRa to become at least a PM ?

    Rajapakse regime had number of foreign citizens as ambassadors, defence secretary, ministers.
    The Rajapakse regime has engaged Western firms to white wash all the wrong doings the regime carried out. They paid millions of dollars to these firms without cabinet approval.
    How many of those who were in the MaRa regime are owning properties in the US and other Western countries.?

    Why Vasu’s daughter chose to study in the US and wants to stay in US & work ?. Do you regard Vasu’s as a neo colonial supporter ?

    Are Palitha Kohana and Morogoda SL citizens or foreign citizens ? Why some Sri Lankan Experts choose to r enunciate their citizenship and obtained foreign or another Asian country citizenship ?

    You Dayan and your masters destroyed our mother Lanka and made it a Pariah State. You are still voicing your hatredness towards your brothers and sisters whom you once lived and ate until you sent vans loaded with ammunition which was then used to kill the soldiers. You always aimed for two separate states in SL then.
    When you got into bad company your believes were catapulted by your greedy masters. You became the worst Racists of a kind and a liar.

    You people lied to the world over and over again. You can go on denying the truth once or twice but you cannot deny for ever, it’s time to face the music hope it will hurt you , Remember innocent men women and children suffered , the UN believed your lies then but they’re not fools to close the book and throw the keys. That’s what you thought that your LIES had been believed , these are serious accusations on the report which has surfaced again to trouble your conscience .
    There need to,be a closure for this horrible effects of RACISM. The present government cannot go on apologising for the past 60 Years of murder torture rapes marginalising and treatment of inequality to your own brethren.

    There’s a reason why countries like the US, UK, Israel and others don’t give a hoot about or any credence to these much-ballyhooed “HR Investigations” They are smart enough to realise that once the precedent is set for “International” interference in their sovereign affairs, there will be no end to people poking their noses into what they consider to be their own business

    Of course, if it serves their interests to do so, they will support such accusations against others, as the US did during “Mahinda Chinthana” and is now doing a delicate backflip during “Yahapalanaya”

    Of course MR could have been smart and thrown a couple of low-level lackeys under the bus for these accusations and have done with it, but he did not. Remains to be seen how the MS/RW/CBK combination handles it.
