Radhika Coomaraswamy Gets Her Brother Indrajit’s Previous Job At John Keells Holdings 

In an interesting move, international human rights activist Radhika Coomaraswamy has been appointed a non-Executive Director of John Keells Holdings, one of largest blue-chip conglomerates in Sri Lanka.

Radhika Coomaraswamy is the sister of Central Bank Governor Indrajit Coomaraswamy, a man in the driving seat of the Sri Lankan economy.

Indrajit Coomaraswamy too held the same position before he became the Central Bank Governor. After his Central Bank appointment, however, Coomaraswamy stepped down from the JKH hob as his continuation as a non-Executive Director would amount to conflict of interest.

Radhika Coomaraswamy functioned as a member of the Constitutional Council for three years. Although her term came to an end recently, there were speculations that she would be re-appointed for another term. However, JKH appointment confirms that Coomaraswamy will not seek a fresh term as a member of the Constitutional Council.

Despite her seemingly unimpeachable stature as the former Under Secretary General of the United Nations and Special Representative for Children in Armed Conflict (2006-2012), Radhika Coomaraswamy does not possess an impeccable track record. She had been caught redhanded trying to suppress a report on human rights violations in order to get the Government go-ahead necessary to secure the plum UN post and thereafter lying about it.

Coomaraswamy stirred much controversy towards the end of her tenure as the Chairperson of Sri Lanka’s Human Rights Council over an unpublished report on human rights violations that were widely condemned. The said report was commissioned during the time she sat on the Council. The report, put together by T. Suntheralingam, a retired judge, who acted as the Special Rapporteur of an inquiry into high profile violations including the killing of five students in Trincomalee in January 2006.

That report was never made public by the Human Rights Commission or the then Government. It finally entered the public domain when Colombo Telegraph published it in January 2014.

The controversy over the report stemmed from Coomaraswamy’s statements to Colombo Telegraph at the time the Colombo telegraph published the report. She insisted in the first instance that the report had not been finalised. She said that neither she nor Dr Deepika Udagama (also a member of the Council) had seen a finalised report before they left the Council. She said “Neither she nor I can remember the contents and if it had been finalized we would surely have remembered.”

However, after we published the story quoting an investigator who insisted that the report had been finalised PRIOR to Dr Coomaraswamy’s departure to the UN, she changed her position, Coomaraswamy was forced to acknowledge that she was aware that the report had been finalised and that she had even received it and ordered it to be published. She said however that she didn’t have the time to read the report.

These circumstances indicate irresponsibility or incompetence or both on her part considering the enormity of the allegations and as importantly the seriousness of the findings. The report revealed the involvement of security forces in the said violations. Had the findings been published or been discussed it would have in the very least put pressure on the security forces to be more disciplined in the execution of operations against the LTTE, human rights activists who wish to remain anonymous say.

Strangely, Sri Lanka’s articulate human rights advocates as well as INGOs which profess a keen interest in rights issues never thought fit to question Coomaraswamy over this glaring act of negligence. As strange is the fact that this lobby did not take up the report when Colombo Telegraph finally published it in January 2014, giving rise to the view that they would sideline an important discussion and with it sweep aside notions of justice, truth and retribution rather than cause embarrassment to Coomaraswamy.

Incidentally Dr Coomaraswamy was appointed to the Human Rights Commission when Ranil Wickremesinghe became Prime Minister in 2001.

      How about Anushya Coomaraswarmy who was CFO at Keels sometime ago and knows and keeps Keel’s dirty secrets – now that RC is outed?!
      RC is queen of Global Human Right industry in Sri Lanka- a billion dollar waste of time. Here we see how human rights has been weaponized to suit the Economic “Rights” of Global 1 percent and to hell with the rest who are being beggared and buggered!
      The appointment of RC, Bondscam Ranil’s old girlfriend to John Keells Directorate is indeed telling about the networks of corruption and insider dealing that grease the Human Rights discourse and machinery.

    The tell-all about Radhika’s life of lies for the mere crumbs from the paymasters is aptly explained in “She had been caught redhanded trying to suppress a report on human rights violations in order to get the Government go-ahead necessary to secure the plum UN post and thereafter lying about it.”
    A worse wolf in sheep’s clothing, one cannot find.

    She had the gall, the audacity, to say tha although she signed the Final report, she had no idea of its content as she had no time to read it.

    What a waste of education on such a deceptive, pompous, selfserving scum bag !

    Is there a conflict of interest ?
    Did the brother’s position get a post for the sister?
    The “suppression” of the Trinco students’ report must have been to obtain the UN post.
    Is it too late now for this matter to be pursued by the government/Human Rights Commission – as no longer there is “protection” by the UN.
    Interestingly, the father of the two – Sir Velupillai Coomaraswamy was a diplomat.

      Having the same broad objectives, you could function in institutions, in which case you accept some constraints, or you could function more informally, which imposes fewer constraints. Both are necessary and the choice is the individual’s. Whatever the institutional constraints, the Radhika I had known was face to face truthful and forthcoming.
      The Trinco Students’ Report was written by Judge T. Suntheralingam and was widely circulated. If I remember correctly, its non-publication had to do with a change of guard at the Human Rights Commission in 2006, after the Commission of which Radhika was Chairman had decided to publish it..

        Rajan,

        Your attempt to whitewash Radhika, even if only tangentially, is truly pathetic at best.

        Radhika initiated and actively got the investigation funded. She directed and supervised the teams work.

        Two issues:

        (1) There is no way the report would have been finalized without drafts that would have necessarily gone through her aside from the multiple interim progressive discussions and meetings possibly chaired by her. So, even if she claims she had not read the final report, do you sincerely think she was unaware of any of its contents that mattered?

        (2) When she signs the Final report, she legally acknowledges that she is aware of the contents, agree with the contents and take responsibility for the truthfulness of the contents to her best of knowledge. What a disgrace that such an educated and experienced legal mind who has been given such wide global legal responsibilities would think it appropriate to shirk legal responsibility by claiming “though I signed it, I do not know or see any reason to take responsibility with regard to the contents of that report that I signed-off on”!

        Rajan, you first undermined your credibility as an intellect and mature community leader when you mistakenly, hastily and foolishly blamed Sinhala racist intent and then a partisan Hinndutva attempt, as the reasons for an appointment at the University – but had to recant both as you realized it was no more than a simple, not unusual, favoritism the Director afforded to his clerk. That write up of yours was pathetic enough.

        Obviously, not pathetic enough for you, as you now find the need to cover for a conscienceless Tamil who would compromise a whole community for some measly UN perks!

        Educated idiots seem a plenty among the elite Tamils!

    JKH might have thought that she is a fit for the position and hired. I don’t see anything wrong in that.
    Had she become High Commissioner of HR, there is a point in CT worrying about her flawed track in the same domain. Now she has been demoted with this position.

      As much as I agree with you regarding the recruitment process in SL. The trend is the same even in the developed world. Most often such positions are given to known parties. The difference; the first world nations do it in a much more professional manner hence it takes a much longer time for such appoints to be highlighted in the media. That’s how the real world operates unfortunately.

          It was a response to Paul’s assertion of ‘Tamils suffering great discrimination’ and has nothing to do with smartness which should be debated separately. The state sector had a disproportionate number of Tamils in pre Sinhala Only days due to a disproportionate number of schools opened by missionaries in the North from mid 19th century. Given a level playing field both communities have their share of brilliance and dumbos. Since you refer to Sinhala baiyas, look at the efficiency of the Tamil baiyas led by a former Supreme Court judge in the NPC. 80% of allocated funds returned unutilized. The Tamil baiyas in NPC know only to pass good for nothing resolutions.

            Definitely not. Given a level playing field, Tamils come out on top. Just look at the BBC . Of the Sri Lankan origin presenters, there is not one Sinhalese. Even the best crooks are Tamils, like Rajaratnam and Savundra. Of course idiots like you will say it is favouritism.
            “due to a disproportionate number of schools opened by missionaries in the North from mid 19th century” There were plenty of missionary schools in the south, but you dumb baiyas reduced them to the same level of mediocrity as your much-touted Ananda. Whose fault is it?

            It sounds like a compliment. No, no, it is a compliment. There is a real good reason for us to be hardworking. We are not blessed with nature’s generosity.
            .
            I had many good Sinhalese friends at my College in Colombo. Most of them were equally hardworking. Many of my batch-mates at the University were hardworking as well. Hard work is a requisite when you are not that gifted or bright, I suppose!

            To claim that Tamils or Sinhalese are smarter is ridiculous. However Tamils are more hardworking because they are a minority. This is found with most minorities around the world. Look at the East Asians in the US, The South Asians in Britain and the Chinese in Malaysia. All minorities, all more hardworking than the majority population.

                There are far more Sri Lankan Tamils in the UK than Sinhalese (due to the Government allowing terrorists disguised as asylum seekers to enter the country).

                Why didn’t your smart brain take this into account? No wonder you failed your GCE.

                You can test my assertion (refer dictionary) by typing the three words ‘Tamil’, ‘violence’ and ‘UK’ into Google. I hope that isn’t too difficult for you. You will find endless Tamil criminals. Now do the same with the words ‘Sinhalese’, ‘violence’ and ‘UK’. You will find nothing.

    I didn’t first understand why people who were self-seeking careerists took up human rights work. Now I know better. It is also a big business shaped by the same corporate culture of greed and self-aggrandizement. Only difference is they call it “culture of social justice,” and “self-fulfillment.” No wonder they are able to switch and swap between the two fields, just like that.

    Ranil has a 2025 or 2020Economic rekindling of Sri Lanka. In order to increase the foreign investment Sri lanka should resturctured to suit that. So, for this exmple, a foreign company will buy all the shares of the comapny in different ways (for example ten different share holders all in the directo board). Everybosy shares the interest. Extra employees have to be laid off as the company had to be profitable to compete with indian or european companies.Blah….blah…so many will be on the road looking for jobs. So, this is a duture preparation. Ask these two whether they will move north or east and look for homeland. They will say wWHY WE DON’T HAVE RIGHTS TO LIVE IN COLOMBO. There is a group of tamils who say that too.

    JK is a hive of elitist very successful Royalist activity and control. From Susantha Ratty to the Tomba Gunewardene they are highly successful entrepreneurs with a cricket and rugby background but no formal education. They started off low key as business management executives and rose really fast. JK really minted money on the Port Elizabeth II Quay extension under CBK. Indrajith is a Royalist too. It is a hive of Royalist exclusivism and it pays to network with some of the richest people who are in charge of proud blue chip companies. Look at their amazing Cinnamon brand and finances.

    Sir Velupillai Coomaraswamy has no connection with this family. He was a distinguished member of the CCS. Indrajit and Radhika’s father is Raju Coomaraswamy who was also a member of CCS and grandfather was C. Coomaraswamy, a member of the government clerical service who got promoted to CCS.
    I am not saying Radhika is not clever, as there is evidence even as a 9 year old at Ladies College she was good in studies before she left with the family to USA in the 1960’s. But the main reason why these people get big positions internationally is because the university they attended and the backing of the Sri lanka government because of their Colombo 7 life style and contacts where they do favours to one another and solicit favours. Their lifestyle is the contacts they have gained from school, rugger, sports, university, neighbourhood, marriage, family connections etc. This happens everywhere in the world but more outside the west.
    There are many Sri Lankans from village backgrounds who have achieved much greater success but who prefer to be in the shadows not publicising their success.
    John Keells Chairman is a Royal College ruggerite and so are Ken Balendra (whose son is the Deputy Chairman) and Indrajit Coomaraswamy. This explains the connections. Cousin Anushya Coomaraswamy was Group Finance Director of John Keells many years back. So, I really wonder whether there will be independence if Radhika is a independent Non Executive Director. I will have to wake Britisher Cadbury and ask him whether he has to rewrite the Corporate Governance code
    Extracts from Cadbury’s code of corporate governance:
    – Non-executive Directors should bring an independent judgment to bear on issues of strategy, performance, resources, including key appointments, and standards of conduct.

    To add another point: Radhika got most of her accolades during the Presidency of Chandrika Bandaranaike Kumaratunga. The Deshamanya and also the UN appointment. All this is due to her close buddy and boss Dr Neelan Tiruchelvam who was a close confidante of President Chandrika.

    Having said this, I have to say Radhika has attended Ivy league Universities which means she is no ordinary student. She is also in the global faculty of New York University. So, she is a person of good intellect. But what annoys us is the way she handled the Human Rights report. As a lawyer, she should know that when you sign a document you have expressed acceptance of all its contents, even if you have not read them.

    Sri lanks and its people expected high standards of integrity from her and she has not exhibited it in the HR report saga.

    New King is now physically converting the Radhika Council back again into Presidential Council. God Bless New King Council!

    So, Madame is kicked out of the Radhika Council which is the notorious one replaced the Old King’s Presidential Council. This new fraud council vetted and selected many officers, but none is good even for municipality work. Basically Yahapalanaya Unity Government ‘s Chancellors Sampanthar, Ranil and New King appointed these Councilors and putting their own body weight too in that little box. The sad fact is people could not find any means to sack those three first.

    New King did not budge to allow Ponny to sneak into Law and Order. He explained that the international Community has to accept his appointment. So, with an underground negotiation, he appointed an UNPyer to that job – anyway he is an UNPyer. Now he is changing him because, there is new Wesak is coming soon this winter. (Only Dinesh knows the date of it. Dinesh has not gazetted it yet.) You know, Rapist Army is For SLFP and Rapist Police is for UNP. So Ranil cancelled his friend Jeyam vacation to Scotland vacation tour. The reason is when there was an investigation on Ranil’s friend Mahendran, it as accused Ranil gave him a safe passage to Singapore. Now when IGP is involved in a case, Ranil doesn’t him go out. Fair enough?

    Let me ask a question. Is this baby going to be born or not? How long this pregnant lady Lankawe can hide her stomach? If Dinesh can set the date in a Rapist Army Hospital for delivery, we are thrilled hear the news of “Boy or Girl”.
    How are all these connected? That is Idiyappa Chikkal (knots).

    She is my heroine. Have you read her report on Myanmar and watched her on BBC, Sky? She is a very brave straight talking woman on human rights. We should be proud of her. This report was handed to her on the last day of her term. This is a Machiavellian attempt to discredit her by those who justified human rights violations in Sri Lanka.

This arragnement is one pre-condition. (God NAtha, goddess PAththini). Ranil says he is not disillusioned bur depressed and feel lke going to an Indian Asram. Anyway, he knows his depression is not because of past life KArma but beczause of what he did in this life, mostly his recent actions. He says he has forgotten all those JVPErs killed in Batalanda, and LRRT killings in Colombo etc., etc.,

    Some NGOS and Some Tamils are crying out loud about this humanrights report. UN is a JOKE andis a wesyern organization. UNHCR is a joke and is a west funded organization. so the human right reports is a JOKE and west wanted it. They never can prove it in an international and oimpartical court that Sri lanka did not follow human right rules. Instead, many Tamils get caught. Most importantly, India say to no when the west goes behind it. All these countries need India’s help. englans isliving well because of Indian elite living there. Indians are running every company in the western world. So, Tamils and NGOs shut up.

    How can you only blame the Rajapakses ?

    All Sri Lankan jokers play the family game. What does this so called intellectual know about business and high finance ? Keells Foods is making sausages

    Even in the private sector, family rule is the name of the game. Even at Keells.

    In one very big Multinational there was a respected Chairman ( first Sri Lankan to hold the post) But after he retired, a few years later his not so bright son in law took over the post. Everything was arranged very smoothly.Later the company realized the game and brought back a foreigner as chairman( after son in law retired)

    Ranil sent his untested cousin to UK as our High Commissioner.He is now grooming Ruwan Wijewardena.Did you see Ranil dance gracefully around local actress Iranganie Serasinghe ? He said he was paying her a tribute !

    The Rajapakse family, crude, vulgar made the family rule a bad word.But they do it in Sinhala while these other guys do it in English.

    This goes on. Sri Lanka smells

    why is john keells worried about human rights to appoint her a director
    she and indrajit have quite different specialities and indrajit an economist was an asset to a business enterprise like keells maybe she needs a job of any sort
    maybe she will take charge of their supermarkets

    Surely are there so many human rights related, gender based violence, child souldiers etc in JKH that it needed someone like Radhika to clean the stables?

    This situ is sad and no different to Nivad Cabraals sis (or niece) being hired for a top job by Perpetual (if my memory serves me right).

    Incidentally Rajus personal assistant in GCEC (the last post he held prior to collapsing and dying in his office) had some unpleasant experience. Fortunately “me too” was not around in 1977 or 78. I think she went off to Aus.

    How much clout will one of the Non-Executive Directors have in a company to name his/her “successor” as non-Executive Director ?
    *
    JK Holdings is a big company and driven by profit motive. It has its own goals in mind when making appointments to its directorate.
    But one needs tangible evidence to suggest unethical influence by a predecessor.

    Radika Coomarasamy hard line supporter of “Susil” says of her merits has been appreciated by CBK of Tamil federalist decedents that of SWRD Tamil blood of group of DNA which is that politically aligned with that Road map of Tamil Separatism..
    No doubt under covered operation by so-called “Human Rights “slogan that R..Coomarasamy advocated and her family closed sympathies to LTTE Tamil cause against principle of Democratic norms of Island .
    They have been penetrated into to various organ of Sri Lankan state which that apparatus being an undermined Political democracy and development of Economy of two members of Coomarasamy . Well members has been weaken of political-economic-social order since 2015 January 8th!@…$$$$$.
    The clan of two members of Coomarasamy the that separatist of family nepotism invalided our two institutions;
    1 The role of Central Bank was paralysis by as CB governor Indrajith Coomrasamy mismanagement Fiscal, Monetary and Financial policies after of Arjuna Mehandarn left of CB Bond scam . CB has lost all revival and recovered last 36 months under IC of governor?
    Indeed nation development and growth at last RUPPE DEVALUED by UNP led RW.
    But Inderjith Coomarasamy of Governor of CB accountability has not there. CB governor has wash his hands by created economic vandalisms and uncertainties in our land .He MUST leave CB Governor as soon as possible.
    2 Radika Coomarasamy as member of Constitutional Council has undermined principle rule of Parliamentary Democracy . She has an accountability as member of Constitional give proper advice and guide line to the democratic Parliament procedure. That is her responsibility of member of CC. She failure do so? Only viable option is that she has to leave members of CC?
    How is that minority of members of TNA become leader of Opposition?
    And How is that JVP in 6 members become an opposition organization in Parliament ?
    Is R.Coomarasamy never opposes in publically .

    Radhika’s explanation on Judge (?) Suntharalingam’s report may be a little wanting. However, Radhika is nobody’s dummy. She stands on her total record in her academic accomplishments and human rights stands. The report on Myanmar was brave. She must have known of the nationalist reaction here and that it would likely make a renewal of her term on the Constitutional Council unlikely. She put the truth before position.

    People who have come this far in life do not ask their brother “How should I vote on this matter Annah?”

    Would we say all this if she were a man? Perhaps she is better than most men and we are uncomfortale?
