Radhika Coomaraswamy Told Me There Was Nothing Against Me: General Jagath Jayasuriya

“Of course in the UN report my name was mentioned as Vanni Commander but no allegations against me. In fact, Radhika Coomaraswamy, who was the Under-Secretary-General of the United Nations, Special Representative for Children and Armed Conflict until 13 July 2012, told me that there is ‘nothing against you'”, says retired Army General, Jagath Jayasuriya.

Jayasuriya

Jayasuriya who was in a center of a new controversy after the International Truth and Justice Project has filed war crimes charges in Brazil and Colombia against Sri Lanka’s Ambassador in Latin America, Jagath Jayasuriya, for his role in the final phase of the civil war in 2009, made above remark with an interview with Ceylon Today.

I was the Vanni Commander. I looked after the Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) providing logistics but I never commanded troops on the front issuing orders to fight here and fire there,” he told journalist Sulochana Ramiah Mohan.

The last week’s lawsuit filed in Brasilia and Bogotá alleges that General Jayasuriya bears individual criminal responsibility as the commander of units that committed repeated attacks on hospitals, acts of torture and sexual violence, enforced disappearances and extrajudicial killings.

“It is an outrage that a man like this, named in UN reports, should be sent as a diplomat abroad and accredited given what he has done. The International Truth and Justice Project (ITJP) and its Latin American partners would have liked to see the General stand trial but instead we understand he’s suddenly fled the region and returned to Sri Lanka,” said the ITJP’s executive director, South African human rights lawyer, Yasmin Sooka. “If he really believed in his innocence, General Jayasuriya would have remained in post and faced the judicial process,” she added “And if Sri Lanka is really committed to rule of law and accountability this is the moment for them to charge him”.

Excerpts of the interview done by Sulochana Ramiah Mohan:

Many charge that there was a Joint Services Special Operations Headquarters or the JOSSOPH Camp in the Vanni functioning as a torture chamber. It was right under your command, isnt it?

A: Yes. In the late ’80s it was there. I cannot remember the Commander at that time. It was a small camp that was established as a complex for joint operations over a period of time. It was the only Army establishment at that time near our Vavuniya Airport.

Otherwise, it was the Air Force that was using it. When there was a requirement for Army presence there, it was the Army Brigade that later made it into a camp and my Security Forces Headquarters was installed in that complex.

It was one of the bases in the whole complex. But, there were so many other Special Forces including intelligence, artillery, armoury and their camps, and the Air Force runway all inside the complex.

Was there a torture camp inside there?

A: That allegations came up since intelligence were there and may be they held interrogations inside. That is why it is interpreted that way. The allegations pointed to me because I had my headquarters inside the same complex which I was responsible for. But there were Commanders at various levels in other camps in the same premises. So, if something had happened in those camps I am not responsible.

Overall, werent you in charge of this camp?

A: Overall in charge was the Vavuniya Brigade Commander who was responsible for the security.

So it was not under you?

A: No. I was not the one in charge of security. There was one security guy to look after the whole thing. We looked after the other small establishments. What many say is when torture was allegedly taking place there, I should have heard somebody shouting and screaming through the walls. They think I was staying next door.

So youre saying you were not responsible for any torture?

A: How can I be responsible if somebody else was doing it? The entire complex was not under my command.

So basically you did not know what was going on in that part of the camp?

A: No.

Is it because you were the Vanni Commander they are pointing at you?

A: What can I do? I mean when I am in a particular place and things are happening 100km away how can I know about it? As the Vanni Commander, I was in Vanni near the airport and the fighting took place in Nandikadal, which is over 100 km away.

In an interview in SPs Land Forces Magazine in February 2010, you claimed: “As the Security Forces Commander Vanni, the entire northern operation was conducted in the tactical area of responsibility that came under my command. I was actively involved in the ground operations executing the directives from Army Headquarters and the Ministry of Defence.” Do you stand by that statement?

A: Yes, up to that particular date I was referring to, I was in charge.

Which date was that?

A: At the final stages of the war, I got instruction from the Army Commander that I hold no responsibility of an Operational Commander.

Which date was that?

A: I think it was February or March.

How do you think Sri Lanka can clear its name?

A: I think the government should do it.

How will your name be cleared?

A: I cannot clear it. I don’t attend UN sessions.

Are you willing to testify?

A: If somebody holds an inquiry or if something against me is proved, that should be investigated. Then I have to give evidence and the person who complains also must give his evidence. I know my side of the story. This has not been done and various allegations are levelled against us by other countries.

I may also ask what evidence do they have against me? Just because someone has charges against me, it does not mean that I have to accept it. Until I am found guilty, I am innocent.

This is where the Special Court comes into play. You would like a Court hearing?

A: Whatever. If the country has accepted a mechanism to sort it out, we have to face it. If we are summoned, we cannot say we cannot go for that inquiry. All must be lined up and inquired.

Why do you think there is an agitation for a special court, which is meant to clear everything, related to war crimes?

A: I don’t know what you mean by a Special Court, but whatever the Court is, then they should do that. No problem. What we want is, to have a Court or whatever name it goes by (or anything else) and finish it off.

      Softy,
      Fighting and defeating the bloody LTTE militarily in a war and committing crimes in uniform are two different things. I fully support FM Fonseka’s statement. Either SLA or GOSL must conduct an impartial, transparent investigation into these matters. Then either clear his name or convict him. Is there anything wrong with punishing criminals. What are you scared of? Quit beating about the bush. Get on with it like a man with “balls”. A law abiding, just Sri Lanka is the worst nightmare for international Ealamistas. Give it to them Softy.
      Cheers!

        Radhika knows to how to turn a blind eye and play the power game well! She panders to power while pretending to speak truth to power. This is why she is a dimplo-mat! Her brother at the Central bank has done some good things, but has not investigated Panama Papers leaks or a single corruption case where foreign bank accounts are involved because they all pander to foreign interest
        Why do you think she is was UN someone or the other? UN is organization that is a massive waste of funds. Now Radhika is on Bond Scam Ranil Wickramasinghe’s Constitutional Council along with Shibly Aziz, a dodgy lawyer who works for corrupt crooks like Nimal Perera? No wonder Bribery Commission, HR Commission and Police Commission are all useless and impunity for corruption of powerful politicians reigns despite all the commissions!

                There are no Sinhalese in the mainland India as Sinhalese were originated in Sri Lanka. Are you that dumb to understand that?

                  Sinhalese or Tamils are not a homogenous ethnic group, having input not only from South India, but also from Bengal and Orissa, in addition to the assimilation of local population. This has been corroborated by the two recent genetic studies conducted by Sinhala scholars. The correct wording should be Sinhala language evolved in Srilanka from other languages including Elu, Tamil, Sanskrit and Pali. This is similar to the evolution of Malayalam in South India from Tamil and Sanskrit. Tamil was being used in communication and administration in Srilanka several years before Sinhala was introduced as evidenced by archaeological findings.

                  According to the eminent historian R. Champakalakshmi there had been Sinhala settlement in Tamil Nadu. Refer to Trade Ideology and Urbanization : South India 300 BC to AD 1300.

                  It is not a question of believing in Mahawamsa. You (the Sinhala/Buddhists fascists) needed a story of origin, Mahawamsa came handy. Now you are looking for other stories however Genetics and other sciences tell us different story.

                  “There are no Sinhalese in the mainland India as Sinhalese were originated in Sri Lanka.”

            Native,
            Why do you wanna pack me off to our ancestral motherland Hindia mate? I am a fully integrated immigrant on this Island by now. After 2-3000 years of assimilation. It is about time your people afforded me the courtesy of full citizenship. With an indefinite right to stay on the Island. Anything else would be deemed an utterly racist violation of my fundamental HR. I might have to instruct Ms. Yasmin Sooka to file charges against your envoy to London. Sooka has a highly lucrative practice and her legal fees are prohibitive. But hey, that is not a big deal for our die-ass-pora.

              It does not bother me at all. The diaspora earns in dollars, pounds and Euros let them do whatever they want to do with their own money.

              What you should be worrying is the wasted millions paid to Bell Pottinger, and focus on numerous scams. Those millions and billions belong to the people of this island and diaspora has nothing to do with it.

              You should be focusing on home grown thieves, murderers, ………..hypocrites, war mongers, war crime deniers, …………….. make an effort to bring back all the large sums of monies deposited outside this island.

      Sarath Fonseka was 1970 batch and Jagath was 1978 batch who joined the Army. Jagath was appointed by Gotabaya as Army Commander by overlooking 17 others who were senior to him and who had credentials as good as Jagath.

      Most of the Major Generals and Brigadiers who were overlooked due to the appointment of Jagath had no choice but to retire and that is the truth. Jagath was favored by the Mara regime and on retirement appointed to Brazil. Jagath had no choice under Yahapalanaya due to the influence of Sarath Fonseka and had to return back and face the music of Sarath Fonseka.!!!

      Politics within the Army is as bad as politics outside.

      Like any other professionals, Soldiers too if they have committed crimes, should face it.

      Like any other citizens, Rajapakshes, and his thugs should facet it without delay

      Like any other citizens current govt men if they have committed high crimes, they should be investigated. but not ina snail move within next year or so.

      Then only, we can give a life to a party of SWRD: Majority of thugs run by JOINT oppo SHOULD BE hung by their balls, that Rohitha Abeygunawardhana or Mahindananda should now have been in the prison, if LAW AND ORDER works to the letter in the country.
      At least those two should be put first before the other .. not forgetting DRAMA queen condom support of Rajapakshe family- Wimal Buruwanse. They should have long been in the jail…. Unfortunatley, pleasing the side, calling it as RECONCILIATION…. cant work it at all.
      New Justice minister, we know you cant interfere judiciary, but you can still take due step the mechanisms and processes could get its speed.
      Cancell all other benefits of the Parliamentarians and strenghthen the hands of Lawyers, by appointing more lawyers and encouaring them… the NEED of the hour.

    C’mon General, who is Radhika? Don’t go after NGO puppies or trust them. Haven’t you forgotten what they did? They all are supporters of LTTE diaspora.

    And most importantly, this issue is not personal to you. It is not you, it is the country. We don’t take people and standby them as individuals. We standby entire Army, Navy and Airforce as one entity. Big or small, we standy all whether they are Generals or soldiers. It doesn’t matter. They all contributed to defeat terrorism.

      All war heroes contributed to defeat terrorism by fighting as one for the country. Our Tri Forces, especially the Army paid a heavy price to bring peace to the country. Therefore, it is the duty of the country to standby living war heroes, serving or served, in honour of fallen war heroes.

      I welcome President’s stance to protect General Jagath Jayasuriya and all war heroes. However, his mentioning about Geneva Resolution and its commitments as a way to taking action against human rights violations is unacceptable. Geneva Resolution is treachery against the country and all those who fought against LTTE terrorists. The government has no right to mention about any human rights violations therein based on unsubstantiated allegations against the Army. Also, nowhere in the Resolution there is any mention about the sacrifices made by our Tri Forces in fighting against LTTE terrorists. There is not a single word to appreciate the dedication and commitment of the Army which is a serious lapse and injustice to them. The nation is indebted to our war heroes.

      Former Army Commander Sarath Fonseka is a disgrace to the country. He first betrayed his own Army with a bogus white flag story. This is the second betrayal. Seriously, Sarath Fonseka should be declared persona non grata and expelled from the country.

        Do you Sinhalese still hallucinate that your rapist, arsonist, peadophile indisciplined cowardly army defeated the LTTE under Pirabakaran as you claim. No wonder your race is internationally known as a race of fools ( Modayas), the war against the LTTE was prosecuted by Indians, Pakistanis and actively supported and funded by China, USA, European union, Australia. Besides this there were other unconventional Players like Karuna, KP etal to support the Sinhala cowards.

        This led to the natural demise of the LTTE and It was not the bravery of your sisy Sinhalayas who defeated the LTTE. Basically LTTE self distructed itself by its own mistakes and because of the change in the international politics following 9/11.to which they failed to adopt. How else will the defeat of the LTTE possible when for 30 long years Sinhalese couldn’t even have wet dreams of defeating the Tamil forces.

        Let me remind the Sinhalayas that there is only one battle is over in the war of Independence of our motherland Thamil Eelam

        All the Sinhala war criminals where ever they live must be arrested prosecuted and executed for committing Crimes against humanity in Tamil Eelam.

      The government can’t stand numb. There should be a diplomatic initiative to protect the reputation of the country by way of summoning Ambassadors of Brazil and all other countries where General JJ was accredited to and explaining them Sri Lanka’s position before the situation gets uncontrolled. ITJP’s case against General JJ filed under Universal Jurisdiction is based on unsubstantiated allegations.

      The Universal Jurisdiction should actually be applied to all exiled hardcore LTTE terrorists among LTTE diaspora who committed war crimes, genocide against civilians, torture, enforced disappearances and crimes against humanity for 30 years in Sri Lanka, not the military who vanquished LTTE in order to protect human rights of 21 million of citizens in Sri Lanka.

      It is time Sri Lanka files cases under Universal Jurisdiction against all exiled hardcore LTTE terrorists living abroad abusing Human Rights Act with the help of INGOO and some UN officials, including Adele Balasingham who was/is an active supporter of LTTE.

      The Human Rights Act should be core to file cases against exiled LTTE and all other terrorists in the world to arrest and put them behind bars instead of letting them use it as a protection from war crimes charges and crimes against humanity.

    Yahapalanaya should release the appoint details it submitted to Brazil, if Jagath term has been full filled in Brazil. Yahapalanaya has to come out and start to explain the new fears instilling in Tamils’ mind by the recent news in media. They (news) are appearing in the public media. Yahapalanaya should not pretend like they don’t read news.

    Isaipriya’s murder is now connected to Vanni Command. It is said she was removed from her surrender sanctuary for torture and murder. As Jagath is saying that there were many divisions operating in JESSOP torture camp, the Vanni command has to come out and honestly explain who and who was responsible.

    Jagath is not denying that he did not know anybody torturing anybody. But his claim is he not responsible for others action. But when torture, murder and rape took place in a compound of government campus, no one in the building should be able to wash off their hand so easily. There is always this types news are shared with colleagues in the compound.

    Further, it is talked that Yahapalanaya is not abolishing the PTA to use if any army commander is arrested in a foreign country, to use it to re-arrest the rehabilitated youths to torture until the criminals are released from the foreign prisons. TNA has to ask and obtain and Yahapalanaya has to give assurances to Tamils that rehabilitated youths will not be re-arrested and immediately the PTA has to be abolished.

    But in the SLFP 66th annual Conference the Sinhala Chauvinist New King has solemnly swore, in addition to his 2015 election promise, that he will save all criminal rapist army. He has to be held to withdraw that assurance by TNA and IC.

    Sighting newly released statements and witnesses, TNA should file a criminal case against Jagath, immediately.

    No one including General Jagath Jayasuriya should be punished for crimes they have not committed . If one was guilty then should be punished to match the crimes committed that includes this General.

    Here some one is a crook. Either this General or Field Marshal Sarath Fonseka is certainly is a crook. Either Sarath fonseka told the truth and that was a serious allegation and cannot be swept under the carpet. so a serious inquiry should be initiated as so many lives are involved. Just imagine how is revelation would have affected the families of victims and they are in the thousands. My3’s election promise was he will not protect ‘war criminals’ and he should not let down the people who voted for him trusting his promise. If General Jayasuriya knows to his conscience he is really innocent he should file a case against Sarath Fonseka challenging his ‘revelation’.

    Other fact is Sarath Fonseka had only a fowl mouth and he is liar and the nature of the serious damaging statement to General Jayasuriya personally and to the country he should be punished and he cannot hold a post of Member of Parliament

    War itself is the crime. If you don’t want war crimes, then don’t start wars, SIMPLE LOGIC!

    So called UN reports and resolutions have been made by Geneva holidaying, “Swiss Kumar” made movies watching, money laundering, and the real war criminal Eelam Tamil diaspora.

    So called “human rights lawyers” shed crocodile tears for money and make big money by demonizing the rightful people. Eelam Tamil diaspora are worth more than $ 100 billion, they have bought Sooka, Pillai, Channel 4, Cameron PM, Macrae ( the fool who made a scene, with a DVD, at Downing Street), Scully , Jayalalitha, Harper, Hilary, Tamil Nadu actors, etc for their dirty work and those people are all tax evaders. Sooka’s and Pillai’s home country is full of violent crimes, but they are busy solving problems where there is none.

    The reason for false accusations is to stop war criminals Adel, Rudra, etc being extradited to Sri Lanka.

    I am shocked that no allegations of war crimes against Sarath Fonseka has been instituted by any of these LTTE front organizations like the ITJP headed by “Comrade” Yasmin Sooka. In fact, ITJP has an entire website dedicated to Sri Lanka. How thoughtful?

    Right throughout after the War, Fonseka has been protected by the “International Community”, aka White Neocolonialists. Their agenda is obvious. Fonseka is playing his role perfectly. Perhaps, the Green Cards he and his kids got was the payoff.

    It would behoove the Yahapalanaya Government to investigate these allegations. After all, the Yahapalanaya Government has denied war crimes. So, this would suggest that Fonseka has violated the collective responsibility of the cabinet, or whatever crap they came out with the last time to boot Wijedasa Rajapakshe.

      War crimes charges against Field Marshal Sarath Fonseka? No way!–

      That is not right. Our Army including former Army Commander Sarath Fonseka have not done any war crimes! They were our legitimate Army. They fulfilled an official duty entrusted with them. They were not sent to sing lullabies to terrorists. Vanquishing terrorists is not a war crime. Any State has a right to protect its citizens from being massacred by terrorists.—

      Bogus white flag story is treachery. From that day onwards, including lies against General JJ, what Sarath Fonseka said was unacceptable and there shouldn’t be any mercy for treachery. That is a different matter and that has to be dealt with differently. —

      He was the Army Commander who led the Army to defeat LTTE terrorists including their leader. We standby Sarath Fonseka for that period. —-

      Ranil, Mangala and Anura destroyed Sarath Fonseka for their cheap political gain in 2010. Sarath Fonseka on the other hand is responsible for his own fate. His hunger for power made him blind so much so he was even ready to betray the country to gain power. Today, he is where he should be branded as a traitor. —-

      No war crimes charges against ALL who fought to protect the country and that includes both General Jagath Jayasuriya and Field Marshal Sarath Fonseka. —

      Both SF and JJ should stop their stupid blame game. When SF is fueled by drama, JJ should not fall to his level by attending the performance.

      Stop talking through your rear end. Tell me how many Sinhala civilians the LTTE killed over the 30 year period during the armed conflict without using hyperbole such as ” Srilankan civilians in thousands” and using phrases such as Brutal killers etc,

      At the most about 1000 Sinhala civilians would have been killed by the LTTE during the entire span of the armed conflict even that is to send a message to the Sinhala state for killing and raping much higher number of Tamil civilians.

      If we talk of LTTe killing the Sinhala Army yes, it is true that they Killed about 5 times more Sinhala troops to their numbers killed going by this calculation LTTE owns up to ( unlike the Sinhala cowardly army) to about 55 thousand Ltte fighters killed through out the war. This gives us a figure of about 300 thousand Sinhala armed forces killed.

      On the other hand the Sinhala Cowardly army and the Sinhala thugs and in some instances supported by the Muslim home guards killed about 300 thousand Tamil civilians including the elderly, Children, mentally infirm and women of all ages. The Sinhala Army and the thugs raped thousands of Tamil women. Over 80 thousand Tamil civilians were killed or maimed and many more injured during the last days of the war in Nanthikkadal area.

      You rogue has the audacity to call the Tamils in the diaspora goons. Tell me in which mental hospital you are writing this from I would love to pay you a visit there.

      If you sinhala criminals have no blood in your hands why don’t you face the international war crimes tribunal ?

      Old Brother Prince has got involved in this and has challenged Ponny that he is doing a consultation with experts on Ponny’s statement and would reply soon. That is interesting because when somebody pulling Jagath’s pants, the end result is Brother Prince is feeling that he is losing his pants. Ponny was brought in as the Army Chief by Old Brother Prince after carefully studying his record on Northern Tamils as a Brigadier. Old Brother Prince knows a lot about Ponny. It seems the consultants are advising him not to open up his mouth and spill the beans.

      Ponny was used well by America. If Ponny had won the election, Lankawe might have had an Ayyub Khan or Stalin or Mussolini. He missed it. Latter Ponny was saved by Obama from not being cleaned in the prison by Prince. America inserted the wedge between both. They both are American citizen. They won’t rescind it because America may 1). freeze their properties and 2).file cases against them. Until they are American citizens, America will make sure one is watching the other.

      Ponny and Old Brother Prince together, for some time after war, successfully marketed their flamboyant phrases “Humanitarian Rescue Mission” and Zero Casualty”. Now they are apart. Those phrases, one time daily filled half a page of Colombo Medias, no longer in use by Appe Aanduwa.

      Ambassador Blake has more of Brother Prince’s White Flag drama. Not all of them died with Mary Colvin in Iraq. He even worked with SLMM to close and go back to Sweden.

      The noose is in the hands of America. America is disappointed with Yahapalanaya (both Ranil and New King) too, so it needs Ponny and Brother Prince. Unless America release at least one of them, filing a real case against the army is difficult.

    Better solution for Jagath is to take all the Thali Koddies lying in his safe to a Cemetery, play Dhovil, cut an Ash Gourd, throw them into the bushes and return home, without turning back. His curse is not in Brazil to run away from Brasilia. He is keeping it safely in his Lankawe home. One Kuveni’s curse is plaguing the nations for centuries. It is going to be difficult to Jagath to run away from 100,000 widows’ swearing. Smart Old Royals melted all of them in time, sold it to Japan and washed off their sins in Tirupati. There was nothing found underneath the Peacock Palace Pool’s sand.

          I don’t believe that. Although Mahawamsa is the written chronicle of Sri Lanka, there are many folktales come from generation to generation, which the author missed or deliberately omitted. For an example; Mahawansa failed to highlight Kuweni was the first living being mentioned in our history, she was the Sovereign of Lanka not rogue Vijaya who didn’t have any children of his own from his Aryan Queen. How could this rogue become our origin, not Kuweni, I can’t fathom? The Indian influence of Mahawamsa is clearly seen throughout the written history as the author was stingy to give prominence to Queens who ruled the country. Women’s, especially mothers’ influence in reigning monarchs was very prominent in our history. Whatever Mahawamsa says about Kuweni, according to folktales, she didn’t hail from Yaksha clan but Deva clan who was believed to be the sister of Prince Sumanasaman.

          If she was a Yaksha (a demon) as the Mahawamsa says, and if she was so angry, she needed not to waste time cursing, but could have easily devoured Vijaya. End of the story. Mahawamsa has missed or omitted deliberately a good chunk of our real history starting from Kuweni as unlike in other parts of the history, there are many question marks and contradictions of the real origin of Sinhalese.

        The Curse of Kuveni: The Vedda and the Anti-Thesis of Modernization

        Sri Lanka

        THE LANKA GUARDIAN, Vol. 6 (1983)


        Here is his concluding remark:
        Our society in Sri Lanka is indeed a living example of how ‘material advancement’ in a dependent economy is nothing but a borrowed luxury imposed from above at the expense of political freedom, economic under development, cultural degeneration, ethical impoverishment and intellectual lupanization of the community as a whole.

        This is the real Curse of Kuveni we are destined to carry with us throughout history.

          I don’t believe natural calamities have any connection with ending terrorism.

          How about 20 millions of lives saved by eradicating terrorism? We lost the lives of over 26,000 young soldiers and another 24,000 lost their eyesight, hearing, legs and limbs. They have families too, if you have forgotten. They had to sacrifice their lives to bring peace to others.

          What you say is bias. It is not only the innocent Tamils, there were innocent Sinhalese who also died of terrorist bombing. Don’t you think they and their families may have cursed the Sungod and that is why he was perished? He and his cadre pulled eyes of policemen, cut the necks, legs and hands of young Buddhist priests alive, killed young and old women and pregnant women by cutting their bellies killing both mothers and children, mercilessly massacred people in entire villages, bombed trains and busses full of people, busses full of children. Someone got to end LTTE terrorism if not in 2009 by Mahinda, then it would have been someone else. It meant to end.—

          What political victims in the prison? Bloodthirsty hardcore terrorists are not political victims. Which JVP member who is responsible for killings released? Name one. Over 60,000 youth were arrested then burnt alive or killed and burnt in 1989. Obama said ‘no prisoners’ to his Army, meaning not to save terrorists. LTTE Terrorists were not subject to such cruelty. Those who got caught while fighting were not killed. They are alive. If anyone was killed it is due to heavy fighting or pre-emptive self defence. There should be law and order. Don’t justify terrorism. Terrorism is against humanity. I am glad LTTE terrorism is ended. All the lives of tri forces, civilians even Tamil youth are now saved.

      Yes, our Army acted in accordance with the Law of the War as per the international law which recognizes pre-emptive self defence as a right. Our battle was against “armed” non-state actors.

      Every state has a right to use force against terrorists on their own soil. If US can use force against terrorists in other countries not even on their own soil, why can’t we vanquish terrorists on our own soil? Did anybody ask whether they follow the accepted standards when they invaded other territories targeting terrorists? We have more right than the USA. The blame should go to UN which has failed its responsibility to define terrorism.

      Our delay or incapacity to fight against LTTE would have increased the risk of civilians being targeted by terrorists. Mahinda’s strong ambition made us see to our goal where US failed.

        Yes the terrorists were using civilians,hospitals and schools and even the Madu church to fight their dirty war but after the just victory of our forces to muddy that achievement with a stupid act or two is unacceptable.
        Terrorists are using civilians and even NGO s in a country like Syria and we have a good defense,should there be a war crimes inquiry. Therefore we must not shy away from a such inquiry.Even the Yanks were guilty of war crimes in Vietnam where they massacred villages in Me lai.

          You better start see all women as mothers or sisters or daughters to save your community from God’s’ anger.

    Get your facts straight.
    JJ was a war hero who almost died in an ambush
    SF is a war hero and wiped out the LTTE.
    SF was also corrupt via the Son in law.
    SF has a really bad temper and a massive chip on his shoulder.
    SF is a Sinhala nationalist and JJ is not. That is a fact.
    SF hated JJ and Parami and Shavendra etc
    SF was brilliant in bringing the 8 and 6 member teams that wreaked havoc behind the lines.
    LTTE got their butts fucked by SF’s brilliant tactics. By the time the general offensives by regular troops happened, their Tiger Tamil arses were already getting reamed behind their lines because of SF’s tactics.
    SF was used by the US but it backfired.

      sirisena is being investigated by Australia for taking bribe from their company when he was a minister under MR. this was in australian news. We have criminals and theives from top to bottom especially in politics. That why sirisena doesnot seem to be in a hurry to investigate any crimes committed by MR and co. He is from the same lot. he is only fit to be a gramasevakaya.

      SF or the army never won the war its a myth. The war was won mainly because of Navy and Airforce. Navy crippled the LTTTE by blocking supplyline. Airforce bombarded LTTE targets and terrorised civilians. Army only wolked into a teritory which the LTTE could not defend due to lack of supply and personnel. If anybody is to name a single person who had a major contribution in defeating LTTE is Sinniah the present Navy commander.

    Prasad Kariyawasam has slowly got in to the confidence of Mr President MS.This fellow is a relative of Rajapaksa is well known fact.He was defending MR in USA.When new national unity came to power in2015 PK slowly changed his policy.
    He will now slowly ruin our country reputation with foreign countries without anybody knowing as Marapana has no experience.Now this person is going to visit India.He was very unpopular when he was ambassador in India.There are many MR supporters in many places acting as his agents.Mr.MS and Mr RW better be alert or they will be finished.They do not know what official like these people can do.

      Deshapriya

      :D :D This is bunkum and balderdash.

      As far as I know MR denied PK the post of FS. If what you say is true, he would have been the FS long time ago. People who were lot junior to him were appointed as the FS. He is a talented Foreign Service Officer with immense experience who didn’t have any political affiliation. Check your facts before writing rubbish.

    Deshapriya is right.Kariyawasam was about to be kicked out of India as a result of Tamil Nadu state government demand.This was after he called TN politicians as Tiger sympathetic .He said this when TN government criticized Mahinda Rajapaksa on human rights abuse.But before Kariyawasam was kicked out his close relation MR sent him here to America.Yahapalanaya government improved relations with Western countries through good policy..But K is taking all the credit for this through publicity..

      PK should have been the FS long time ago. I dont know whether MR and PK are relatives. Every Ambassador is supposed to protect the image of the country and the Head of State. That is a fact. They need not to have a kinship with the Head of State to do that as they are regarded as envoys chosen by the Head of State to represent him abroad. Even if the Head of State has done something controversial, (MR didn’t violate any human rights during the period of war) the envoy should justify his action while trying to ease the tension. His tool is diplomacy which is an art. That is why they are called Diplomats. —–

      “Tact (Diplomacy) is the art of telling people to go to hell in such a way that they ask for directions.” – Winston S. Churchill

      “Diplomacy is the art of saying “Nice doggie” until you can find a rock.” — Will Rogers

      “The supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting (by being tactful).” — Sun Tzu

    My3 talks nonsense when he says that he will protect the brave soldiers. Why should they be protected if they are criminals. It is not the function of the head of state to protect criminals. In any case, Jayasuriya had to run away from Brazil. My3 could not have protected him from the jurisdiction of foreign courts. So, best course is to keep these fellows in Sri Lanka for ever and not send them abroad on diplomatic perks. They are in danger as is My3 who was defense minister. One find day on his overseas tours somebody might want to test out whether immunity applies to a war criminal simply because he is head of state. Pinochet had problems, though he was not a current head of state. This thing about war crimes will not die. It will live for many many years. People are still bringing cases against Germany for war crimes done during the WWII. Our Sinhala heroes who killed women and children have to live with their karma. It will haunt them through their lives. but more certain is the punishment that foreign courts will impose on them. That day is not far off.

    We are all wasting time. Stupid Sirisena, Rabid Ranil and all other jokers in the Diyawanna are not with the mindset to rescue the Sri Lankans. They are focusing on further robberies and using Stupid Sanga and faction of the forces/police to do the dirty work. If the Commanders of the Forces consider that they are with/for the people, should take a drastic step to arrest all the politicians and allow the educated civilians to form a democratic political government so as to rescue innocent citizens to generate another generation who will see justice. If the forces fail, their uniforms could be regarded as good as valued to wipe the sewage only. Justice should triumph at all cost.

    Dumb Tamils and BTF are going behind Sri lankan army Brass————-but, BTF does not go behind the secret services of the British govt.———–https://www.opendemocracy.net/opensecurity/phil-miller/mi5-in-ceylon-untold-story—————–If David Cameron attends the Commonwealth summit in Colombo next week, critics say the Prime Minister will endorse the very same government responsible for those war crimes. In fact, Cameron follows a decades-long tradition of British prime ministers supporting. In February 2009, during Gordon Brown’s premiership, Britain deployed two senior Belfast police officers to act as “critical friends” of the Sri Lankan security forces, only days after the PTK hospital was shelled (as featured in the film at 21:35).———–Declassified documents (never before reported) reveal that Tory PM Edward Heath secretly sanctioned MI5 to provide counter-insurgency advice for crushing a left-wing —youth uprising on the island in 1971. This experience cemented an Anglo-Lankan security partnership, which was to be the mid-wife of many repressive tactics later used against the Tamils. This untold history puts Cameron’s support for Sri Lanka in a disturbing new perspective. —The full extent of British counter-insurgency advice for Sri Lanka against the Tamils is still hidden behind the Public Records Act, which conveniently contains a ’30-year rule’ to firewall from public knowledge much of the small print about British foreign policy since 1983. However, there is enough evidence already available that shows the foundational role Britain played in creating an apparatus of mass repression on the island. This toxic legacy of British spooks in Sri Lanka should haunt David Cameron on his visit to Colombo next week.

    So basically you did not know what was going on in that part of the camp?

    A: No.

    I also don’t know who is paying my rent as my wife is handling that aspect as i’am too busy and just come home to just sleep only after my hectic shedule.Also at one time my mentor was Deaf and Blind Wijetunghe who told me how to live my life if i wanted it to be peaceful to the end.

    The heading suggests that Ms RC has exonerated the General. But that is the least relevant aspect of the issue at hand.
    Still, for all the prominence given to what RC reportedly said, no one seems interested what exactly transpired and in what context.
    Should not RC be invited to clarify the matter?
    It would have been sensible to ask her to clarify the matter before publishing the item– on the other hand, what is desirable to CT could depend on it journalistic priorities.
